Anybody who didn't enjoy Kick Ass is what we call a douchebag.
Eat shit Matthew Broderick
confirmed preliminary cast
Exciting to see Juliette Binoche and Bryan Cranston in the cast of Godzilla.
Elizabeth Olsen is going to be in both Godzilla and Oldboy? Wtf? I still can't wrap my head around Spike Lee re-making an American Oldboy...
They will never be able to top the score of the original.
They'll never be able to top anything about the original.
Or not what you're expecting at all?
I watched Skyfall last weekend. I liked it a good bit, but had a few issues with it: Bardem's villain wasn't menacing enough, and the final confrontation (and even the last half hour you could say) was really underwhelming. Aside from Severine at the very beginning, this had no Bond girl. I've heard they went for a different approach this time around, but come on.
I like the third act at Skyfall more than anything else I've seen in the series. But that's mainly because I hate Bond movies more than almost any other franchise.
I'm also inclined to say sieges > chases for the most part, but I haven't done a proper comparison.
The future of cult franchises: Fans do the basic funding? How about those people get a fucking percentage. Jesus christ.
Godzilla will be terrible despite a great cast. Why? Because it's a terrible, terrible premise for a movie that is trying to be anything but schlock. It's a fucking Sci-Fi (the TV channel) movie. Why would Cranston do this? The man seems to actually have some real integrity.
Also, it was a very good movie for fans of procedurals. If you can sit and enjoy hours upon hours of Zodiac, Flight 93, and similar edge of your seat by-the-book movies, Hurt Locker is fantastic. That's me to a T, and I get that it's not everyone.
So, I know this movie has been discussed in this thread before, but the line-up this year reminds me of 24 Hour Party People, one of my favorite movies. Pretty stoked to have gotten it in the mail today. Wrapping up the day and about to pour myself a fabulous drink, get bloody high and watch this movie. Excite.
Keeping with the holiday theme this weekend, I'm looking for a quality movie to watch with a few drinks on Saturday that's Irish or is made by an Irish director.
