Star Trek - 6/10

Just...it has a lot of annoyances. Some big (Vulcan destroyed by time traveller? Simples, use time travel again to reverse what he did, like Star Trek has always done - why can't it be done here? Especially when old Spock is the one who pioneered the slingshot around the sun method in IV), some small (Lens flare. And why are phasers now little lazer blobs instead of the continuous and more realistic lines of light that they used to be?).

Its not that I have a problem with the alternate reality thing - in fact I think it'll be great fun - its just that it doesn't make sense in the context of the Star Trek universe. These things have always been reversible before, theres no reason this wouldn't be. Theres especially no reason that old spock wouldn't use time travel to save his own planet when he used it to save Earth in Star Trek IV.

It's a summer action movie. Stop trying to over think it.

Stop trying to justify valid critiques with the fact that it's a summer action movie. Bayformers were summer action flicks, still didn't change the fact that they sucked. :dunno

A film is a film is a film is a film. Someone paid money to have it made and someone else paid money to see it. No labels can make up for that.

Why pay for those when you can get them for free elsewhere? :naughty

Just saying, not everyone is willing to pay money just for an excuse to turn their mind off. Look at Piranha 3D, for instance; it was obviously a stupidity fest and it even failed there.

By the way, you don't have to turn your brain off, but you shouldn't go into a summer movie expecting something it's not going to be. It's meant to be entertaining. If that's not entertaining to you, fine. But relax, and enjoy it. Star Trek isn't even a dumb movie any way...it's just not the original Star Trek.

It's like going into The Grey, and expecting Taken. :lol

Huh. I was judging based on the critic reviews on Yahoo Movies (plus the user reviews from both sides are abysmal). Typically users have more-valid inputs when it comes to nichey stuff like this, but whatevs. Your comment about Star Trek not being the original does ring true.

CelticPredator
02-07-2012, 06:48 PM
I mean, here's the thing. Yes. The Transformers movies are crap. Yes, I love them with all my heart. They aren't for everyone. They're made for children. I like the effects.

However, if you go in, and expect something...well, good out of them, well that's my issue. And it's my issue with every other Summer movie.

They're made(summer movies) to be fun fluffy flicks to entertain and make money. Sometimes you'll get the gem like District 9, which has a ton of creativity, and class to it...but for the most part, Summer Movies exist as an event. Not a time to watch high class movies.

As for Piranha, people didn't get it, and I feel sorry for them. It's a comedy. It's meant to be funny. You were never supposed to take it seriously.

Godzilla (Gojira) Criterion Collection on blu ray. 9/10.

Easily the best of the Big G's movies. Created and told by a culture that experienced the affects of nuclear testing and fallout first hand.
This was the most fierce Godzilla Toho created. Every G movie afterwards can't even compare, including the ridiculous made-for-America version with Raymond Burr.

True, but Spock was the one who did it and probably at that point can't really reveal himself to everyone and maybe the tech of that time made it so it was not possible to do the whole "slingshot around the sun" technique... not to mention that would probably have been even worse :lol And whose to say they didn't try it... but lo and behold they were not successful in the past and Vulcan was still destroyed :huh

But past all of that... I actually enjoyed the sucker punch of destroying Vulcan, it puts a very unique stamp on the new movie Universe and allows not only all new stories to happen, but gives Spock more latitude to explore his human side.

Drive: 9 / 10. Bought this as a blind buy the day it was released on Blu-Ray, and watched it that same night. Wondering if it could meet the hype, and it did, but in an entirely different way than expected. Very deliberate pacing. I really dug the retro 80's music as well as the 80's pink cursive font during the opening credits. If only the movie makers had the balls to keep the same pink cursive font on their advertising materials for this film.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes: 8/10

Very impressive. It was refreshing to see how it focused on the characters, which made all the events that much more powerful and emotional. It's easy to see it from the perspective of one's relationship to their pets. I know when I look at my 2 cats and interact with them, I see much more in there than just an animal or a "pet".

I haven't really seen any of the original Apes movies since I was a kid, so I really don't remember any specifics. I did see the Tim Burton version though, which was "eh". Is Icarus supposed to be the space ship with Charlton Heston? Is Caesar spoken about as being the original ape? But wait, wasn't there one movie where a couple of the advanced apes come back in time, and they give birth to Caesar? Agh! So much to keep track of! I'm gonna have to Google it...

This movie ties in pretty well with the first Heston movie. The only comment you kinda have to ignore - or rationalize, since Heston's character wouldn't have had any inkling as to the method by which we destroyed ourselves in his absence - is when he says "they blew it all to Hell".

Get past the first one, and you have to start rationalizing a bit more to make it fit. You can do some of it - while the old films focused on the nuclear aspect, it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that as a plague got worse, wars would start breaking out as countries tried to isolate themselves, and nuclear annihilation would still be possible.

But even the first 6 movies ended up playing a bit fast and loose with the story (who was the first ape to speak, how that happened, etc.), switching things up between them as the story required. They fit this one in well enough, at least as far as I'm concerned.

It doesn't need the right director, it needed the right release.

Close to an hour of stuff considered either too violent or scary was cut to get an R rating and the cut footage was never preserved to make it into a director's cut.

Lots and lots of stuff that would have made it a far tighter, scarier film instead of so straight forward. You can blame the idiot test audiences for this one.

Not a film but a series I know but I've really been enjoying it, I've just got two episode's left to watch now but if you haven't seen this & like gangster flicks then seriously give it ago. There's some great characters in it (most absolute lunatics) & it's all based on true events in Melbourne, Australia. it's been around for awhile now & I just stumbled upon it by chance & I'm so glad I did.

Damn surprised how good this was, even being part of the played ou "found film" genre this one was actually done in a clever way. It wasn't perfect and was certainly derivitive (Akira anyone) but still very entertaining. And as a side note I had been planning for the previous couple weeks to see TPM in 3D, but about 30 minutes before it began I changed my mind and saw this instead, I definitely made the right call :lecture

Apollo 18: 6/10
Guess it was a week for "found film" movies :lol This was alright, interesting idea but didn't work quite as well as it could have. Also the threat was not as impressive as it could have been and probably my biggest nit:

If both ships are destroyed in orbit around the moon, how'd they get all the footage?

I saw Apollo 18 in the theater. I really liked the idea of the story and it was shot pretty well, i thought. The threat did leave a lot to be desired though. Could have been so much better. Still one of my more favorite movie posters from last year though.

Transformers : Dark of the Moon. I have hated on Michael Bay quite a bit in this forum. I thought the first movie was OK and absolutely hated the second. This one is like 2 separate films in one. The first is a very unfunny and really odd comedy where I didn't really understand what was being said and the second is a rather kick ass action spectacle. I quite enjoyed the final hour and a half or so. Even if there was a gaping plot hole involving the autobots being captured and Otimus suddenly being untied from his binds. 6.75/10

Journey 2 - 5/10. Some truly cringe worthy dialog by everyone...but the Rock. Seems like he's smart enough to keep all the good dialog for himself, and stick the flunkies with the bad lines. He did a decent acting job too, and the 3D was reasonable. But the overall plot was weak, and there wasn't much character development. I should have cared more about Michael Caine - it's Michael Caine for God's sake!

Cowboys and Aliens 7/10

Better than I was expecting, mostly because of the characters. I guess all the negative reviews had me thinking it would be worse than it was. A review said that the first 20 minutes or so were solid and that it could have been an awesome movie if they just kept going in that direction. But when the aliens showed up, the movie went downhill. I agree everything before the aliens was excellent. I thought all the characters and the town interactions were great. And all that carried on throughout the rest of the movie. Now, everyone is right that the aliens in concept were half-baked. All the sequences with the cowboys fighting the aliens were a bit of a bore. Unfortunately that all dominates most of the movie. It felt very generic and unremarkable.

But all the characters were fantastic. I would love to have a tv series with those characters, and no aliens. Dollarhyde was custom made for Harrison Ford. I'm so glad to see him finally playing a character worthy of him after all these years of him taking embarrassing roles. That's who I picture the Raiders of the Lost Ark Indy to have aged into, not the Crystal Skull Indy.

Hellraiser and Hellbound (at once) - 5/10

Was the first time I saw this "classic horror". Expected MUCH more!

The first one is very well filmed, has an interesting plot, great cast and nice efx... BUT it isn't that scary, mainly because of the faint visualization in the right places and pretty flat script. From the second movie I expected some answers to questions that original left... Got very boring, meaningless set of scenes and idiotic dialogues of blank characters.

As a result, this "classic" turned out to be another series with verrrry interesting ideas (through which it became a cult classic) that wasn't properly implemented on screen.

you have to put the first Hellraiser into context; when it came out there wass nothing like it and though not scary it was disturbing to a lot of people - people do not like their fetish sex and murders together like that. The first movie is fantastic and the second is passible but again it's all context.

GI Joe ... 5 or 6/10.

Wasn't quite as bad as I'd heard. Watchable. Not nearly as good as The A-Team, though (it is a crying shame they're not making a sequel to that one).

A-Team had a much better tone for this type of movie ... good action, compelling actors, not overly serious. Tatum is not a very compelling lead. He's a weird mix of taking himself too seriously, and not being a good enough actor to carry serious scenes. The whole thing was WAY too sci-fi ... GI Joe military technology should be based in reality. No need for laser guns when regular guns will suffice ... again, like The A-Team. The mix of sci-fi technology (which can't be taken seriously), and acting that was humorless just didn't feel right.

Basically, the movie was OK. A-Team was the movie that GI Joe should've been. It sounds like they may be making some good course corrections for the sequel, though, particularly with Rock and Willis involved. I'm willing to give GI Joe 2 a chance.

Agreed, unfortunatley movie re-makes have proven to be bad business. I think people have grown tired of the lack of new ideas coming out of hollywood, and so they basically just assume that many of these movies are just going to suck. I also thought Fright night was very good, and it also did bad. I won't lie even I waited for it to come out on video b/c I was ceertain it would suck, no pun intended (I know lame:slap).

It wasn't terrible, but the medieval ages aren't exactly the best time period for what is essentially a stoner comedy. Compared to, say, Pineapple Express (which I'd give a 9/10 or even a 10/10 since it's so good at what it does), it definitely fell short. I was looking forward to Danny McBride and James Franco doing something together again, just wish the setting wasn't so surprisingly bland. A few fun scenes and some charmingly-ignorant (a couple of those were funny for the wrong reasons :)) facepalm-inducing jokes are all it had to offer.

Enjoyed the movie, but I think the whole Spock travelling through time was weak.

I also noticed the wide brown building with the huge staircase in the center leading up to the building was Cal-State University Northridge. The Oviatt Library.

Winona Ryder looked too young to be the mother of a 20+ year old. :lol

Funny I watched this tonight.

Immortals - 6/10

Thought it was too long and boring. There was some great action sequences but the pacing was just sooo slooooow. I like Tarsem Singh, especially for his other film "The Fall" but this was forgettable.

I agree that Rourke played a good bad guy and future Superman Cavill really brought the intensity in those fight scenes. Loved it when Ares showed up and smashed every soldiers brains out. Likewise with the ending Gods vs. Titans scene.




Anonymous 6/10

Another long dragged out film but at least was far more interesting than Immortals in the sense that I was into the story but knew that some parts just dragged.

The argument behind the fact that the Earl of Oxford was in fact the original author of Shakespeare's works makes for an interesting story, and coming from a director like Emmerich the film looked absolutely beautiful. From the CGIed vistas and old Victorian era England to the lighting and composition of shots. Not to mention the acting was top notch especially from Rhys Ifans and the rest, which honestly you lose count of who is who which was another draw back. Still very interesting.

Mystery of the Batwoman 7/10

Pretty good story, and loved the character even though she has nothing tho do with either old or new Batwoman, and I've been on a Batwoman drawing kick that I just had to see anything related to her.


Superman/Batman: Public Enemies 6/10

McGuinness' art translated pretty well to the animated format, although I found Superman and Luthor drawn very oddly. Captain Atom and others looked really well and there were some nice fight scenes overall what you would expect from a WP animated flick.

I actually really enjoyed Mr. Brooks myself, and thought it was a bit underrated (I wouldn't give it a 9, but. . . :D ). I never thought Costner was that great of an actor (and that movie didn't really change my mind), but he's serviceable in certain roles. I actually think he's most natural/believable in his baseball movies--Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. I'm guessing that's where his real passion is.

Anyways. . .

Your Highness: 7/10

He certainly is. If the studio would have put the money behind this one to compete with the campaigning of the bigger films it would have been hard not to give Shannon the Oscar. Jessica Chastain is one to watch as well.

I have an affinity towards smaller indie films so stuff like this typically hits with me. I didn't expect how hard it would hit me. It's the first time in awhile that a movie gave me chills and literally took my breath away. His battle, his devotion, the love and strength of the family. I could really go on gloating and honestly don't expect this to be the majority of peoples thing on this board, but if you're a fan of independent film where story still reigns supreme this is one of its finest in a long time.

After Shotgun Stories, and now this, I'm worried Jeff Nichols is going to be high jacked by the big studios.

The Three Musketeers (recent film) 6/10

It was an entertaining movie with some pretty good action scenes, and loved the war ships. It was totally over the top and cheesy, but again the fight scenes and gadgets made up for it. Was too long though and it seems they were trying to build up to a sequel which I doubt will happen.

Apollo 18 2/10

I walked out of my living room 30 mins in. Was too bored to care what happened and when I realized what was going on, I didn't stay long enough to see (but still heard) what happened. Huge snore.

OK, just finished watching this and enjoyed all of it.
Michael Shannon is good at playing this kind of role. I've seen him in Bug and the character he plays in that movie is very similar to this one.

By the way, did anyone catch the subliminal message right at the very beginning of the movie?

The first time you see Shannon, less than a minute into the movie, he's standing in front of his garage looking up at the sky. The next shot you see a huge, dark cloud, in the shape of a person's head. Now, at the very top of the head, where your brain is, the clouds are enormous. From the forehead, the clouds spread up and outwards and you can see lightning behind the clouds only in that area.

Very suggestive that 'this is all in your head.'

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon: 6/10

I had to take 2 breaks while watching it because it was so mind-numbing. It really went on for much too long, especially the first hour to hour-and-a-half. They should have cut more than half of that stuff. I did enjoy the prologue in Cybertron. And I LOVED the building sequence. But the rest was overload.

I kinda want Bay to do something else besides these Transformer movies. I loved Armageddon and Bad Boys 2, and didn't think Pearl Harbor was so bad. He creates excellent action sequences, and all his movies are photographed impeccably.

I was trying to think back to the other two movies and for the life of me I can't remember the second one. I had to read the Wikipedia plot summary to refresh my memory, and I seem to remember the first half of the movie (vaguely), but damned if I can't remember the second half with all the action and resolution. I think that's very telling.

Just went back to check that out. Never noticed that lol. I thought the movie was pretty refreshing in the sense that its been a while since I've watched a movie where I was really into it and it didn't need any out of this world action scenes or anything like that to keep my attention.

So is the ending supposed to be part of his dream? Or is that storm actually happening? It almost seems like they're leaving that up to the viewer but has there been any official word on that? I tried thinking about both scenarios but I can't really decide =\. I'm leaning more towards the ending being a dream of his

To answer your question, I would again refer to that subliminal picture at the very beginning of the movie. That image pretty much tells you the underlying theme/idea that drives the main character.

At the end,
he notices that his daughter and wife can finally see what he sees. Extremely unrealistic, gigantic, double-twister tornados approaching. That's your first clue. Next, you see his wife reach out to catch the thick, yellowish substance falling from the sky just like he did at the beginning of the movie. That's the second clue. These are the hallucinations driven by the schizophrenia. It's all in his mind, as was suggested by that subliminal image at the beginning of the movie.

It's a good commentary and he just seems to lean that way but from interviews he's been putting out as far back as Sundance he's open to the idea of people making different interpretations because whats being interpreted is irrelevant to what the movie is about. Here's a great answer from a Q&A


Well, I said it last night in the Q&A, and I can reiterate here: His wife is the pivotal character. Michael Shannon is the main character, but Jessica Chastain is the pivotal character. Will she stay with him? Will she not stay? Will she support him? Will she not? The answer to that is the answer to this stress and this fear and, ultimately, the film. If this movie isn’t a film about marriage, commitment, and communication, what happens at the end, literally, doesn’t really matter. It can and hopefully will be interpreted in a number of ways.
