So the first time I watched the movie I was also very confused. Then I did some research on the internet which kind of cleared things up. It turns out that the wormhole things in the film are some sort of beings from the future sending messages to Donnie. They do this to fix some sort of mistakse they caused in time, which ultimately should have happened the way things are played out in the tragic ending. The director's cut does a better job of explaining this apparently.
You know its funny, I loved Chappelle's show and his standup, but for some reason Half Baked never worked for me. There were a couple spots that were funny (Sir Smokesalot) but overall wasn't thrilled with the writing.
Lmfao, I thought this was going to be a parody trailer or something. I didn't even know they were making this movie. Doesn't look especially promising, especially with that sketchy CGI at the end with the helicopter.
This is the ending they should have used with the theatrical release. Unfortunately test screenings and producers think they know what is best for a movie and gave us the sappy sacrifice ending we all know. Scrabble02 is correct in that this ending is more like the novel's ending. In the novel Nevill's character realizes that the "vampire" creatures are the next step in evolution, and he is the monster for trying to kill them. The creatures sentence him to execution for "murdering" so much of their race. Nevill's character than realizes he is legend, but not for saving anything. He will become a legend to them because he is the creature that caused so much death.
This sounds promising. The water gate scandal is prime for a dramatic movie adaptation, I'm excited to see what Neeson brings to the table for the role of Deep Throat. We should remember that he wasn't always running around, shooting people trying to save his family. He is a fantastic actor, especially in a little Steven Spielberg movie called Schindler's List.
I think Hugo Strange would make a great Batman movie villain. Unfortunately the studios might not think he's marketable enough. Audiences recognize villains like the Joker or Catwoman, that's why they keep using those characters.
Great choice, I definitely thought Whiplash was one of the best films of 2014. I love the ending, and it does question whether Fletcher's techniques are justified as he does give the world a "Charlie Parker" through Andrew. Great ensemble of actors in that movie. The most recent movie I went to see recently that really surprised me was Sicario. I went to see it on a whim, and it ended up being one of my favorites of the year so far.
With Iron Man getting a major role in the next Captain America movie, I guess this makes sense. I'm not sure how Banner gets to Asgard, but it'll probably be explained in the movie. Hopefully this does lead to a Planet Hulk movie. Or any Hulk movie. Ruffalo hasn't gotten a solo adventure as the Hulk yet, and I would be interested to see how it would turn out.
Man, first Mark Hamill comes out and says that Luke should have been evil, and now Ford says that he would have wanted Han Solo to die. It's a good thing George Lucas didn't listen to them lol. I can understand where Harrison Ford is coming from though, it would make sense for Solo to have died in an honorable fashion in the original trilogy. Who knows, maybe he gets the book in the Force Awakens. We'll have to wait to find out.
I would say Birdman had some really funny bits, but its more a of drama/comedy. My favorite straight-up comedy from the last five years is probably MacGruber. It's just WIll Forte being silly for an hour and a half, which is great. People either hate it or love it.
This is definitely one of my most anticipated movies of the year. It would be cool if it breaks Skyfall's record, but I'm more concerned if Sam Mendes made a great film or not. Judging from the trailers, and the fact that Christoph Waltz is playing a villain, I'm sure it won't disappoint.
This looks like it could be pretty funny. I'm a big fan of Sam Rockwell, Will Forte and Danny McBride, and it looks like they're having fun here. The plot seems to be satirizing not only religious stories but hoaxes in general, and if it's done tastefully, it could work.
Next to Pan, this was the biggest flop of the year. Studios that greenlight a sequel before the original comes out is just silly. Unless you're Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, you have no idea how the first movie is going to perform. As bad as this one did I doubt Fox will keep their original plans of producing a sequel.
Favorite movie villain, that's tough. The Joker is a great choice, and the thought of Teasle as a villain in First Blood is interesting. I never really considered him a villain; he was a jerk for sure, but he was just trying to do what he thought was right for his town. As much of a jackass he was about it. I think my favorite would Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men. His icy cold demeanor, random babbling and silenced shotgun are pretty intimidating.
@subjeero I would recommend both Traffic and No Country for Old Men. Traffic paints a vivid and realistic portrait of the people that deal drugs, and the people who are consumed by taking them. It features an all-star cast, and is beautifully shot. No Country for Old Men is arguably one of the best films of the last ten years; hardly dated. It's perfectly paced and the characters are enthralling, especially the villain played by Javier Bardem.
I think the fight scenes in the trilogy could have been improved as well. In 'Begins' Nolan does too many quick shots, we don't get a good glimpse of the action. I thought it improved with the next two films, but the fights also suffered from the choreography. I was so stoked to finally see Batman vs. Bane on the big screen, and what we ended up getting was just two dudes throwing haymakers at one another.
