    I prefer Gladiator over Braveheart. I wouldn't consider either a "timeless classic" though.

    Absolutely. They're handomely produced entertainments, but I'll likely never watch either again for the rest of my days. And even if Braveheart were superior in every other way (which it's not), at least I can think of Gladiator without having to consider Mel Gibson's disgusting, throw-the-f*****-out-the-window sense of humor.

    Braveheart is a classic. It won best film, directing, and cinematography at that big award show they do in Hollywood.
    I can care less about that award show that they do. Braveheart made people feel. As much as I admire those esoteric avant-garde films I know you all cherish, I find something very valuable in a film or any peice of art for that matter which is able move the masses. Even if it is a bit sentimental, humans are sentimental animals.

    It's been a long time but I do remember 12 year old me laughing his ass off at that scene and I refuse to apologize for that. Braveheart had a better script, better direction, better cinematography, better editing and now that you point it out, better humor.

    Even the transcript of that scene is funny:

    Longshanks: Who is this person who speaks to me as though I needed his
    advise?

    Prince: I have declared Philip my High Counselor.

    Longshanks: Is he qualified?

    Philip: I am skilled in the arts of war and military tactics, sire.

    Longshanks: Are you? Then tell me, what advice would you offer on the
    present situation?

    (Longshanks kick's Philip out the window)

    Philip: AAAHHH!

    When I was young I wanted to make films like Stanley Kubrik but now I want to make films like Steven Spielberg. Heartwarming films for the whole family which inspire the imagination of young and old alike to think about nature and worlds of possibilities, which also exhibit aesthetically traditional themes from the originally composed score the moral message of the story.

    Saw the new Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy and thought it was extremely good. Might be the modern day Star Wars. I didn't know anything about it before going to the preview and thought it would be horrible when I saw a raccoon was one of the main characters but I was way off. Lots of action, humor, a good enough storyline, and visually stimulating. Highly recommend to see in 3D.

    Also saw Lucy and while it started off with promise it was laughable bad. Afterwards I felt like I had devolved.

    I am genuinely curious why you thought this. What about that would make it horrible instead of quirky, interesting, funny, etc?

    Nothing will ever be "the new Star Wars." There isn't a "new Radiohead." Comparisons like that are extremely near-sighted.

    You're gonna be hearing the whole "this generation's Star Wars" saying a lot with Guardians Of The Galaxy. Such comparisons aren't necessary, though I think it's getting kicked around alot since the film works extremely well as a stand alone Sci-fi flick.

    I really loved it. The action was great, it had a surprising amount of heart to it, and it was actually extremely funny. It doesn't take itself too seriously either, which most comic book inspired flicks do now a days.

    Another aspect I really liked about it was how fast it just dives into the movie. It doesn't linger too long on the beginning, it very clearly introduces the characters and their motivations, and gets on with it.

    It's really, really fun. You should watch it and stuff.

    Seemed cheesy to me. I actually thought it was a spoof at first because I am not familiar with that comic and seemed different from the Marvel characters I was familiar with.

    Don't worry, Star Wars will be safe.

    the only reason people love braveheart and gladiator as much as they do is that they involve a lot of violence justified by insane revenge stories. and i saw braveheart at ye old cine capri (large single screen old school movie house that used to exist here). i admit, i love it. most people love a good revenge story. i also had a large friend dress up for halloween as the guy with the ponytail on his head that says "the english are too many!"

    Guardians was awesome!
    Saw it in Imax 3D, which made it even more special.

    I might even go see it again when I see Ninja Turtles next week.

    Also, the trailer for the new disney animated flick they played before it looks really good

    We take it for granted nowadays because it's become so incredibly common, but yeah that big battle scene in Braveheart was something that a lot of us hadn't seen before. I remember being completely shocked at that part when blood hit the camera lens.

    Ever listen to the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" One of my favorites, especially the one on Howard the Duck. They disect these horrible but great movies pretty much scene by ridiculous scene.

    These were my thoughts as well. I'd kind of forgotten about this section of the Marvel universe. I used to collect the cards when I was a kid and I remember Thanos was always was one of my favorite villains because all of his stats were jacked up as hell. Overall it was a really nice surprise - when I first saw the teaser I would have bet my life the movie was going to be horrible.
