I disagree with the criticisms against TWS, don't care about debating them right now, I'm just glad people are starting to question Marvel Studios, you wouldn't see that a few months back.

Deckard
12-28-2014, 03:58 PM
I've always been critical of Marvel. Thor was mediocre(Loki is super played out), I didn't like the recast of Norton and the way they treat the Hulk movie like a bastard child now, Iron Man 3 was a monumental **** up on multiple levels, and Thor 2 is just sort of there but they are still doing something impressive that I respect them for trying. DC and Sony are, so far, completely unable to follow suit. Guardians was rad though. No complaints there.

So you prefer the Galactic Empire in general to Darth Vader? SPECTRE is great, but I wouldn't want it led by anyone but Blofeld.

The system can be great. But without someone to put it to work(abuse it, etc.), it's just sort of there. In this movie, that was Pierce. He just isn't as compelling as Weaving's Skull imo.

Vader is obviously a great, identifiable villain, but he's really merely a symbol, a tool, of the Empire, though, right? By the end of Jedi, we're not even supposed to think of him as a villain. Just a guy who made some bad decisions. :lol

No, I've been saying it since he was first cast. He's too young(baby faced) looking, can't fill out that helmet, is short, and doesn't project confidence in a fight. (in FF he covered that by talking **** but can't as Cap)


I think thats why the First Avenger went downhill once he became Cap, I enjoyed the first half of the movie before he became Cap, Evans’ look and voice worked for a skinny Rogers, but he just can’t pull off the soldier aspect of Captain America which is a shame considering how important that is to his character, I think that really hurt the first movie aside from the rushing over extremely important events in Cap’s life so that they could tie in with the Avengers.

Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that the Empire would be pretty dumb and boring without him. If he's not in the trilogy and you just have Tarkin with the Death Star, Ozzel with the Executor, I don't see Star Wars being the success it is today. Plus in the first movie, he hasn't been neutered yet. He's just a force of evil. So a fairer comparison with Vader is Winter Soldier, sure, and Soldier could have been good too if he had more time to be fleshed out. But like I said, he's rushed.

I'm just saying SPECTRE with no Blofeld, The Empire with no Emperor, HYDRA with no Red Skull, The Marine Corps in FMJ w/ no Hartman, those systems aren't so compelling anymore. Their all just the same authoritarian system of control with no personal motives.

Nazis still exist, but no one really cares much since Hitler's death.

YankeesFanboy
12-28-2014, 04:15 PM
Godwin's Law has now been invoked! :lol The Nazis came to power legally in Germany. If that's not system failure on an epic scale, I don't know what is.

I think you're arguing that a superhero? movie requires a strong, charismatic villain to be good/effective, no? I'm just saying that I don't think that's always a requirement.

Deckard
12-28-2014, 04:26 PM
I'm saying that it requires a way for the systems to be relatable, primarily to the protagonist. It doesn't matter the medium, you are the one who mentioned 1984. I mention the Nazis because most people don't consider them a threat anymore because they relate the danger of Nazis directly to Hitler. The idea that one guy managed to exploit the party to bend to his will and his beliefs. Something Red Skull also does well by re-aligning his Nazis as Hydra.

Half-Life 2 is another example. Aliens want to subjugate Earth. How original. So why is that game so highly thought of? Because you have a guy who exploits the system in Dr. Breen. He puts a human face on these generic actions/plot points and wants to exploit things to his own gain and he makes a personal connection to the hero that allows for it to feel more personal to us as well.

So if you really believe FMJ could make the training sequence work without Hartman, and just with the threat of death and having been drafted, well, more power to ya. I know damn well it wouldn't.

And I would contend that in certain circumstances, it is just as effective, if not more so, if there is no one Man Behind the Curtain. Or if the man is not compelling or even readily identifiable.

I mentioned 1984 because it is not Big Brother, nor even O'Brien, who is the primary villain. It could very well be Winston Smith, who betrays his better nature by turning on Julia and reinforcing his own oppression. Or is it...the System? It's not necessarily clear and well-defined. And I don't mind one bit.

All these talks about GotG and TWS... had to watch them. :lol

_

The First Avenger: Another War - 8,5/10 (Russian title, which I like much more)

Second viewing, now at home w/o big ass screen and awesome sound or 3D...
Story is perfect, actors are good, visuals are great, action is awesome, music is beautiful.
That beign said... Writing could use more polish, some scenes were pointless, too long or misused.
Still love it! Still the best CBM to date!

_

Guardians of the Kids-friendly-ness - 7/10

It's good. Just not as good as it should've been.
The charaters are way too cartoonish. What little action it has isn't good enough quality.
Could say that my opinion is biased because after seeing the first teaser I was excited for an epic action-packed adventure filled with more mature humor... But after watching TWS again I wouldn't be able to understand why they couldn't make the same with "Guardians".

What would you do better?
****, my bad, I completely missed it :lol

Haven't watched it in years, from what I can recall it doesn't suffer from severe problems, but the movie never really stuck with me, I do remember some of the acting of the human characters was iffy, in particular that cheating lady whatshername, some of the dialogue was kinda cheesy, there are some great lines like "so eager to play, so reluctant to admit it" and then some like "No tears, it's a waste of good suffering" or something like that, one really makes you believe they're explorers of the farther regions of experience, the other one sounds like a cheesy line from an 80's villain.

I'm rambling, I would have to watch it again to tell you what I would do differently though, but script and acting can improve from what I can remember, of course it's not terrible by any means, but it can improve.

Fair enough.

I haven't watched it in years either, but the film stuck with me - as far as the craft involved, certainly. In that sense, it's a landmark film, & there are some truly haunting & disturbing themes & visuals in it. That said, I guess the dialogue & delivery can be better in most films.

Paranormal Activity 2 - - 4.5/10

Why did I watch this. It was on TV, so I thought, "**** it - I endured the first one, this can't be much worse." It was actually a little better I thought; at least the bits with the dog & the baby were done well - the rest ranged from vaguely entertaining, to stupid.


Godzilla vs King Ghidorah - - 7/10

Oh jeez. :lol The premise was dead set hilarious - like that android guy (he was side splittingly funny), but some cool stuff in there. The end fight between the monsters was great, & the whole film has that air of 'primo schlock' - which I guess defines a lot of the series. I've only seen a couple of them, so I'm no aficionado.. but I at least know they're not meant to be analyzed with a magnifying glass - you either love these kinds of films, or you don't. Really good fun though.

Some parts of the film definitely had me feeling. But a large part just didn't sit right with me. Acting from some was well executed, but the overall time lapse was a bit choppy. Here I am wondering how long he has been a P.O.W.


Just want to say there really isn't any action, so don't go in thinking we see some Captain Phillips. More so a story of endurance, faith, and belief.

All 3 performances were great, and thats saying something considering I’ve never been impressed with any of the leads until now.

Unfortunately things move way too fast, and the characters don’t feel as fleshed out as they should be, I’m guessing a lot of scenes were left in the editing room, which really hinder the overall movie, this could have been a great movie instead of a good one.

Tatum, and Ruffalo for the first time really showed me they have acting chops.

The Grand Budapest Hotel - 9/10

Wes is one of the few directors who is still continuing to improve every aspect of his craft. I especially like that this took a bit of a turn away from the typical love story happy ending he runs with.

So good. When he's hanging on the edge of the cliff but still won't shut up, it's so intense yet comical. And then Dafoe goes over the edge and he cuts himself off with that "Oh! You got him!" I just about died. His end on the train is equally well-written, giving the opposing officer a pass card from Norton.

Anderson is one of only a few Director's who's movies I get genuinely excited about (hence my screen name), even though I was disappointed with Darjeeling Limited. His look is unmistakable, as soon as the film starts, you know he's the Director.

Fiennes was so good in this movie, hope he get's a nomination for it. He even makes the F-bomb sound strangely cultured and Elegant.

Life of Crime-8/10 A solid adaptation of a story from the inimitable mind of the late, great Elmore Leonard. Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes do an excellent job of paying tribute to their forebearers in their respective roles of Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara, while also making the roles their own. All in all, an excellent cast and a solid plot make for an enjoyable experience and a worthy prequel to Tarantino's Jackie Brown.

Saw it 4 times in the theaters. Fell asleep the 4th time. I know a lot of people laud this film, but it's terribly flawed. Case in point: the two German soldiers that surrender after Normandy that the US soldiers just callously gunned down. There's no mention of the fact that those two soldiers were Eastern Europeans that were conscripted to fight by the Nazis in lieu of death sentences. That's pretty much what the one soldier is saying before he's shot. I also am not a big Spielberg fan. He tries too hard to control his audiences' emotions and bathes in pathos to a nauseating level.

I should probably say more that Spielberg is overrated. I enjoy the film, especially as the authenticity it entails. We use to have veterans come to our school and every single one mentions that Saving Private Ryan is the closest, if not most accurate, depiction of D-Day. Aside from the gory D-Day scene, a lot shows various others dealing with the war and the reality of it. As a war film, it has to be one of my most favorite, but just seems a bit overrated.

I just saw Fury, and while that one is also flawed, I'd say it's probably my new favorite war film; out of the fact that SPR is like the only war film people think of immediately (next to others like FMJ and Platoon etc.)

I can agree about the statement of Spielberg, but he did a good job. The example you give is something that really drills how it was. If you casually watch the film you won't catch the part about the Czech soldiers. However, if you have an ear and truly study the film, you will figure out what they are saying. I have pretty bad hearing so I always use subtitles, as well cause I watch a lot of foreign films/shows, so that helps me. Personally, I cannot distinguish German and Czech, but on the subtitles it shows what they say. A lot of people don't realize the extent of German's total war tactic, so it's something people ignorantly disregard. As I have seen this film plenty of time, it seems I pick up something new every time I watch it. Kind of like the phrase: Hate the sin, not the Sinner; I can dig the film, but can't stand the director.

Her: 8/10

The Imitation Game: 8/10


Re: Saving Private Ryan. I actually really dislike that movie. I used to be a huge Spielberg fan, but his post TOD movies have been very hit or miss. CE3K is one of my favorite all time movies, as is Raiders. And I have really enjoyed some of his more recent movies like Minority Report and WOTW (not so recent anymore!). But I can barely stomach SPR. Not because of the violence, but because of the horrible, schmaltzy writing and dialogue! Gawd it makes me want to puke! I always thought SPR would have been much much better if it was just a more simple, straight-forward war movie. I think the 2 battles are phenomenal. Flawless. But that "hook" of finding Ryan and those terrible, stereotypical, 1 dimensional characters just really bring down the entire movie for me. I think the script would have actually worked better if it was directed by Michael Bay and let him do his over the top thing with it. It was just such a heavy handed hokey plot that I would have been fine with the movie feeling like plain old escapist adventure "fun". And that FUBAR stuff! I absolutely HATED HATED HATED that crap!

Imitation Game was great. Benedict and Kiera were excellent. The story was great. I had heard about him and Bletchley before so it was really up my alley and I'm glad they did a good job. BTW, there's a great BBC show called "The Bletchley Circle" which focuses on a group of former Bletchley women who meet up after the war and solve crimes! It's actually more serious than that sounds! :lol

And with Her, I liked how it made you think about what it really means to love someone or connect with someone. And I think it gave such a realistic view of how the future could go, especially when they show exterior shots with people all connected to their phones and ignoring the rest of the world. He shot it so naturally without drawing too much attention to it, but it's there.

I wouldn't say avoid, more so I was always exposed to the classic 80's stuff with homeboys like Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Gibson. If I ever caught Russell, it was cause something was on TV and I just gave it a go. I never looked much into his career. After reading a bit more on IMDB and seeing Escape; I will definitely need to check out those, along with some other cult classics.

Larry Crowne. 6/10.

I was put off watching this by that awful, cheesy poster campaign for it & I wrote it off as a typical Julia Roberts rom-com, which I tend to avoid like the proverbial plague, but I thought that the relationship between the two leads was pretty well handled & nowhere near as schmaltzy as I thought it was going to be. Although, the riding around in a pack on scooters thing started to grate on me. It does help that I'm a big Tom Hanks fan, though, & I thought that Bryan Cranston was wonderfully sleazy in this. Plus, I found myself falling in love with Gugu Mbatha-Raw:love during the film, who I was not familiar with, at all.

I quite enjoyed this for the simple throwaway fun that it was intended to be & I'm surprised that it was so poorly received with such vitriol by many film critics.

It should have been Michael vs Jason. And maybe Freddy vs Chucky or Leprechaun... or Leprechaun vs Chucky.

Not sure who Leatherface could fight, seeing as how he's human with no supernatural abilities. Pinhead, Chucky, Michael, Jason, Freddy, Leprechaun - they'd all be way too powerful for him. Maybe Ghostface? Not sure how that would work though. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is more hardcore horror (excluding some of the goofy sequels) whereas Scream is satire.

Not sure who would be a good match for Pinhead either. I guess Freddy or Leprechaun out of all the ones I've seen so far.

Hmmm...maybe Ash from Evil Dead? He kills demons, and Pinhead is exactly that.

Anyway, time for the Pumpkinhead series and the last Evil Dead film (Army of Darkness). :yess:

Burn After Reading -- 8/10. Funnier than I expected, actually. It usually takes me a couple of viewings to get Coen brothers' movies. Some, I've seen a few times and still haven't quite gotten. This one, I get.

It's kind of an anti-spy movie ... a bunch of unimportant amoral people with no skills undertaking a low-stakes espionage game that doesn't end well. It was pretty clear that the parts were written for specific actors -- Clooney is surprisingly good as a fast-talking, jittery sleaze-bag, Malkovitch is pretty much playing himself, and Pitt was hilarious as a high-energy personal trainer.

Best character in the whole thing was JK Simmons in a cameo as a sharp, high-ranking CIA guy trying to figure out what the hell is going on. He ends-up essentially being the voice of the audience in his couple of short scenes.

Offbeat, but good. Which is all you can expect out of the Coens.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the first two films because I thought they were boring, but this one had a lot of action and it was cool seeing Arnold, Harrison Ford, and Mel Gibson as the villain. Snipes and Banderas were kind of fun to watch. There's nothing believable about the action, but I thought it was entertaining if you don't expect much and look at it as silly action film. Also, Stallone recruits a new team, so they do that 90's cliché where they show each new character showing off their skills as Stallone hires them one by one for a mission...:lol

I watched the expendables 3 last, too. I really like the films. I don't take them seriously. I laugh at them and admire the fight scenes and the big cast on screen.

I thought 3 was a complete mixed bag. There are some great bits but there are some awful bits, particularly the whole Stallone recruiting his new team part. Especially the female mma fighter. That part was just pure cringe worthy. There's some kinda special effect as she's walking through the bar - just watch it. You'll see what I mean. In fact the whole new team are crap and pointless and dull. And although the humour isn't there as much as in the previous two, I felt the humour that was there was a lot better. It wasn't as forced. Banderas was quality :lol truly funny. As were ford and Arnie (more so on the outtakes) Gibson was pretty great as the villain if a little underused. I also loved the Ducati panigale R motorbike statham rides in this one.!

I'd go with the expendables no.1 - 8/10
No.2 - 7/10
and no.3 - 6/10.

I've also recently seen the hunger games mockingjay part one. I'm into those films. I liked the eerie feel to this one. 8/10.

I think I'm the only one who never thought Michael Biehn was a good actor. I love the characters Hicks and Kyle Reese, but I've always found Biehn's acting as them to be so stale, unenthused and monotone.

Now that I think about it, I haven't seen Biehn in anything else.


Man, I thought that film was garbage. There you go, we're all different. :lolWell, I've thought most of the horror films I've been watching lately are garbage, so this was a pleasant surprise. I'm not saying it's a great, or even good film or anything. It succeeded in two areas that none of the others really have for me yet.

1. I was interested in the villain.

2. I was genuinely scared/creeped out at times.

Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Chucky, SAW guy, Ghostface, Leprechaun, Pinhead... Some of them are interesting characters with cool designs, some are completely boring and unoriginal (Michael, Jason), but none of them have scared me.

Leatherface scared me a bit in the first film, and the Evil Dead setting gives me chills, but the Creeper so far has frightened me the most.

Evil Dead 1&2 - 5.5/10

Army of Darkness - 4.5/10

Both Evil Dead films have a good balance of satirical humor and scare factor, moreso Evil Dead 2, but Army of Darkness had 0 scare factor and felt like a big joke to me.

Sin City A Dame to Kill For 6/10 Meh. Too much Marve imo. Brolin was okay and Eva Green never gets old. The JGL plot was pretty stupid in the end. But basically it was Sin City on steroids. Pretty much the same as the original. If you loved the first one then yeah this one prob is pretty good.

It was also enjoyable, and Takei came off as a cool, likable guy of course, but nothing of great substance here. Mostly just goes over his time in an internment camp during WWII that traumatized him severely, and a review of other events in his professional and personal lives. Probably only appealing to fans of Star Trek, or Takei as the pop culture icon he's become. Shatner comes off as an *******, but no shocker there.

Birdman - 8/10

The entire cast is good but I didn’t see one Oscar worthy performance to be honest, the direction and cinematography on the other hand was.

Looper - 8.5/10

Watched it again tonight, almost forgot how good that movie was.

If Rian Johnson is doing a Star Wars movie, count me in as excited.

Haha the 2002, I'd rate Spider-Man 3 a perfect ten if I fell under the conditions of blind and deaf. :lol


Haha I also saw TDKR. It's decent. After seeing it a third time, it just eh isn't held up well enough.


Spider-Man 3/10

You've lost what little credibility you've had left. :cuckoo:

I don't know some scenes are super stupid, some pretty bad acting, and monotonous for some. Only good things that came out of it was JJJ, Dafoe as Gobby, and some of Spidey's swinging scenes.


Mind you this was my first CBM and as a kid I loved it. Spidey also being a personal favorite hero, but after seeing it again after a while, it doesn't hold up for me.
