    Considering the first one was such a well written and well directed masterpiece that out shined its visual effects, I don't know who wouldn't be super stoked for this sequel.

    That is probably the best thing he has done. At least it didn't try to hide the fact that it was the cinematic equivalent to the WWF.

    Dawn Of The Dead was pretty awesome, actually.

    The problem with 300 was what was added to the source material...a bunch of dumbed-down political nonsense and totally flat, not-quite-there emotional connection with the wife character.

    Snyder is frustrating because he's a very talented craftsman...he has an amazing eye and he obviously has great vision for what he's doing. He's ambitious and has a lot of heart put into his projects (unlike say, a Brett Ratner)...but I think he might be just kind of dumb.

    I agree with Drinkey.
    But if superman sucks, (Christopher Nolan is behind so it shouldn't), hopefully World War Z will be good.
    Should you even read the two novels before going into the film, because I heard the movie was pretty damn different from its source material.

    After borrowing it from a friend for a few months I finally got around to watching Drive. It was an enjoyable movie but nothing special. I would say the fist 3/4 of the movie was good, the ending of it was really bad.

    Also I've saw Superman already and in my opinion it was really fucking good, but I tend to like superhero movies.

    Major parking lot irie, then 'Forbidden Planet' at South Coast Regency tomorrow night for the first time. Yippers.



    "When Adams and his crew are sent to investigate the silence from a planet inhabited by scientists, he finds all but two have died. Dr. Morbius and his daughter Altaira have somehow survived a hideous monster which roams the planet. Unknown to Adams, Morbius has made a discovery, and has no intention of sharing it (or his daughter!) with anyone."

    This Is The End was a lot of fun. Played very well during a sold out show last night. Lots of laughs throughout. Maybe a bit smug and a few pacing issues but all around one of the funniest comedies I've seen in a while. Danny McBride is fantastic as usual.

    I agree with this 100%. I'm still a little bitter about The Watchmen. It wasn't a bad movie, I guess, it just wasn't great, when it really could have been, and I can't help but feel a lot of it falls on Snyder's shoulders. The movie looked incredible, and that is undeniable. He has a great eye and great taste. Some of the casting was absolutely brilliant and deserves recognition (Rorschach and The Comedian)... but some of the casting was just horrible (Night Owl and Silk Spectre, mostly), how they portrayed Ozymadius' character was just atrocious and ran contrary to the graphic novel, the sex scene was just plain embarrassing, and the music was some of the most amateur-ish shit I have ever witnessed on screen.

    The ending lacked the punch in gut the graphic novel did as well. I felt sick reading the final section of book, but I could not disagree with what was being said. However in the film it was like "This is what I did and this is why I did it," and the viewers goes "Thats fucked up. But Ok. I follow. Go on..." and I feel the big "reveal" at the end is what really made me fall in love with the story. I didn't even have a problem with the Squid not being in the film (I understand it work incredibly well in the graphic novel, but it wouldn't have made sense to filmgoers who were not familiar with the source material). The ending was just a let down compared to how intense the ending of the novel was.

    All in all, what Drinkey said. Snyder is just dumb and if Superman is as great as the trailers make it out to be, I have no doubt Nolan played a huge part in that.

    The guy can make a good trailer. Suckerpunch had a good trailer for fucks sake. No one is arguing that Snyder is dumb. Suckerpunch was his brainchild, and that says it all really.

    the movie house was pretty full of mostly elderly and the film got a solid, albeit not rousing applause afterward, but 'Forbidden Planet' was terrible. How is that a scifi classic with an eight rating on imdb? Oh man it was bad.

    This past Sunday was a total movie day for me. Started the day watching "Hoop Dreams" and "30 for 30: June 17, 1994." Then we went to the Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA, which was AMAZING if you haven't already gone. To finish out the day, we watched "Lost Highway." Now THAT was a Sunday, if you ask me.

    Man of Steel. The last Zod fight scene was a bit long, that's prob the worst thing I can say about the movie. Henry Cavill did a great job, can't wait to see what they follow it up with.

    D.C. Cab is amazing. I've never seen a flick with so many quotable lines, but that haven't been run into the ground over the years. Thank god for the internet-free '80s. Fucking classic.

    If you've been waiting as long as I have for a Superman movie where he actually shows off his superpowers and gets in extremely crazy battles, then Man Of Steel is pretty great. I have no problem separating this movie from the past movies because, well, that's kind of the whole point of a remake.

    I have but I wouldn't necessarily want to do it in a movie theater. It's a great flick but fucking long, and as pretty as it is I'm not sure it's the kind of lush visual that still impresses today. Like it's not 2001 where I can imagine going to see it in a theater is just a completely different experience. I'd watch it at home if I were you.

    The fuck is with you and these old movie theaters?

    really? I didn't feel anything you'd normally associate a quality Sci-fi film with. No edge or bleakness. No mystery. No caring for the characters and their impending outcomes.

    I don't think it was as serious as it should have been. The rank escalating love affair, the whiskey bottle generation, etc. A bit corny overall. Liked the laser guns though.

    I saw it years ago at a theater, there was an intermission halfway through.

    Nosť, but pretty sure I was the only one smoking out and urinating on the side of the building before the show. Didn't see anyone else.

    And, yes, 2001...that's engaging Scifi. Thanks for the tip on Lawrence. Actually DVR'd it from HDNet, so may go that route up on the plasma with surround.

    I disagree. Lawrence is one of the those movies that should ONLY be seen in the theater. Its scope is lost in almost all other settings. 70mm on the biggest screen you can get to. There will certainly be an intermission as well.

    Yeah, and what does "in one sitting" mean when you're talking about a movie with a built-in intermission, anyway?

    Superman was aight. Didn't love it. Cavill was good. I love Michael Shannon, but his character was too whitebread compared to the Supes 2 version. Some villains need to twirl the moustache to be memorable, and Shannon didn't do that. The best line from S2 was nowhere to be found, either. Sigh.

    I did like the idea of showing us more of Krypton, I liked the look at Smallville and Clark in "First Blood" hitcher mode, and the lack of slow-motion fight scenes was preferable after all the other Snyder stuff. But yeah, the fight scenes went on long and the sequences are becoming too familiar... small town big bad guy fight... Thor. Destroy the big city... Avengers. Spunky girl outsmarting the military... Thor and Hulk. Superhero smiles creepy while figuring out how to jump/fly... Spider-man.... TWICE.

    I was glad to hear Chris Cornell's "Seasons" in the movie, though, and the drum corps they collected for the drum scenes included Danny Caray, Jason Bonham, Sheila E, and Josh Freese, so that was groovy. But where was Batman when the whole world was at stake? Jerk elitist.
