Throw in the fact that the plot structures of III and IV are virtually identical - tough new fighter arrives on the scene, inadvertently kills a friend of Rocky's in the process, Rocky trains really hard, digs down deep, and improbably defeats new fighter.

    The difference here is that at least in III, the first third of the film is over the top on purpose to show us how far from reality Rocky is, until his defeat brings him to down to earth, and the rest of the film returns to a reality closer to where we had been before (though Rocky is still inexplicably smart). IV is pure cheese from frame one and never stops. The Cold War is fought and won by Stallone, but not before some pretty clichéd training montages, complete with that "Hearts on Fire" 80's relic blasting. Oh, and can we mention Paulie's new robot? Hate Part V all you want for almost ending the series on a slight downer, lame Don King-esque characters and all, but at least it didn't feel like a cartoon.

    Kick-Ass was a movie I wanted to like and didn't. Maybe it's because I don't think highly of Mark Millar, who wrote the original comic.

    I also didn't love the movie, but it's very entertaining, and is one of the only occasions where I thought the movie was much, much better than the source material. I hate mark Millar, thought the book was garbage. James Gunn's Super is a far superior movie.

    The Kick Ass 2 trailer was a lot of fun.

    I'm so excited to see the Veronica Mars Movie kick starter at over $1.5 million in just a few hours!

    This is interesting. I thought Kick-Ass looked terrible and didn't want to see it at all. I somehow ended up watching the film and loved it. I only found out afterwards it was actually based on a comic book. Either way, very excited for the sequel.

    Seriously. I was dragged to go see the movie and ended up liking the most out of everyone.

    The scene I liked in Kiss-Ass was when Nic Cage shoots his daughter, mostly because it was the best work Cage has done in years.

    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...

    Although I really want to agree with you on that, I'll hold out a little hope that we can get at least one amazing scene from Sam Jackson.

    Actually the whole cast is pretty solid now that I'm looking at it again.

    Rocky, Rocky II, and Rocky Balboa are the only Rocky movies anyone ever needs to see. Hell, you could erase III, IV, and V from existence, and it'd be a great little trilogy.

    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.

    You could argue that M was the Bond girl this go-around.

    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.
