This is the case of a movie I really wanted to like, but at the end of the day couldn't. I enjoyed how Fincher satirized the public's perception of the media and how it can blow things out of proportion. I just didn't like any of the characters, and despite reservations I did feel the movie was slow. Not to say that this is a bad movie, but I think Fincher has done better.
I saw the Marian recently and I have to say that I enjoyed it significantly more than Interstellar. Interstellar had some great ideas, but it suffered from too much clunky exposition. The Martian tells you things without having it fell forced. It makes the characters more likable, which allows the audience to connect with them more.
I really liked this movie. I like almost anything Edgar Wright directs actually. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost always have great chemistry, and here is no different. Even the action scenes in the movie are good. I still like Shaun of the Dead as the best of the trilogy though.
I didn't dislike Jar Jar when I first watched Episode I. I think I was around ten. The next time I watched it I couldn't stand his character. It's just one terrible cliche after another. I understand his purpose is to supply comic relief, but there's a point where it borders on annoying.
Yes, this sounds awesome! I'd imagine that after the premiere of the Shining sales might have dipped for this hotel, probably because people were scared of being hacked to death. With this new museum it will definitely draw in some revenue for the place. Use it's weakness as a strength.
Like someone said the older Bond films don't concern themselves much with physics. In Live and Let Die Bond kills the villain by putting a shark pellet in his mouth, which causes him to blow up like a balloon, float to the ceiling and blow up.
I think it was overrated as well. Didn't really feel like a Bond flick, plus the story was all over the place. They really need to bring back the gadgets, quips and the Bond charm back to these movies.
For me it goes: 1. Fury Road 2. Road Warrior 3. Thunderdome 4. Mad Max I went back and watched the first three last month and sorry to say they didn't age well. The first is slow, the second a tad better. Thunderdome starts off interesting, but then gets a little too Peter Pannish.
@srabble02 It's been a while since I've seen it, it I think the villain in the movie wants to create a perfect race of humans. He gets the brilliant idea to wipe out the world's population by deploying nerve gas from outer space (this is the actual plot). James Bond goes to space to stop him and laser battles ensue. This movie sucked all around, acting, script and direction. The reason the studios produced it was because Star Wars was so popular at the time and they were trying to cash in on the trend.
Yeah, this one sucked pretty hard. Like you said I think it was even worse when compared to the previous film, Casino Royale. Which was amazing. I don't think it's the worst Bond of all time though. I'd probably give that to Moonraker. Bond in Space? Ugh. I hated the Moore era.
These guys are pretty funny, but they can sometimes ruins movies for me lol. I guess that the opening sequence is a rehash of the first, the dialog isn't very good, and there are plot holes galore, but I still like Back to the Future Part II as a movie.
This is definitely one of the death scenes that stands out in Robocop. There are many. I still think the most brutal, not just in this film but most movies, is Murphy's death scene. The poor guy is shot like 100 times, gets his arm blown off and then gets his memory wiped out. Talk about brutal.
There's some cool things in here. I also wondered who the person dead is in the snow. Could be Chewbacca, or Han. Or who knows. The person could not even be dead. Guess we'll have to wait until December to find out.
I'm not sure I'm on board with this. Godzilla 2014 was kind of a misfire for me. The characters were criminally underdeveloped which resulted from a terrible script. Hopefully they can change that with future installments. Secondly, if we're going by their traditional measurements, this fight would be completely one sided. Kong is about a tenth of the height of Godzilla and, last I checked, doesn't sport atomic breath. This could be a disaster of epic sized proportions, but I've been wrong before. Prove me wrong Hollywood!
Lol that one was pretty well done. I love when the Peter Gabriel song kicks in and everything seems honky-dory. Interesting note, while the movie's Jack Torrance is a self-absorbed drunk who tries to chop up his family, the Jack from the novel actually starts off as a kindhearted person like the guy in the trailer. He even snaps out of his murderous rage, induced by the hotel, towards the end at which point he tries to warn Danny to leave.
@daredevil334 Don't forget about Ben Affleck. He's really come into his own directing. Argo and The Town are both great films. Granted he sometimes doesn't pick the smartest roles (Gigli? What was he thinking?) but I usually find that he is an underrated actor, and a fantastic director.
Also Ron Howard. He's great. And Rob Reiner. He's great too.
I don't think that American Sniper takes a positive stance on war, more specifically the War in Iraq. On the other hand it doesn't seem to show war in a negative light either. The film lies somewhere in between. It doesn't seem to take sides, and I think that's part of the reason why it works. As one of the critics in the article above mentions, the film is seen entirely through the eyes of Chris Kyle and the actions he takes. War is not always negative and it is not always positive. American Sniper simply shows how these events are played out.
Doomsday should be saved for a Superman sequel alone. Since he is the galactic juggernaut that kills the Man of Steel, DC should wait to include him further down the line. Maybe have him be the main antagonist in Man of Steel 3.
@srabble02 I'd be pretty bummed if it's true. The only reason I can think of is that their saving his character arc for this series of films for the next two movies. They would spend this new one exploring the new generation of characters first I assume.
Very cool, that gun was a beast. I hope Blomkamp gives us the Alien sequel we finally deserve. With the inclusion of classic characters Ripley, and possibly Hicks, it looks like its going in the right direction.
I love Tarantino, I think he's one of the best film makers around today. But . . . he can have an inflated ego sometimes. I understand that he's extremely influential in the film community, but come on. I seriously doubt that studio executives were going, "You know Tarantino thinks Casino Royale is filmable. We should do that! But lets not tell anybody its because of him!" It's a bit of a stretch.
Ever since it was announced that Deadpool would be rated R my interest in seeing it has gone through the roof. We've only gotten a handful of R-rated superhero movies and judging from the trailer this one looks promising. 2016 can't come fast enough!
