"Nothing goes over my head, I have excellent reflexes" This movie was so good; I laughed more than I should've at times but man, I have to see it again. It's so different yet fits the Marvel cinematic universe so very well. The only thing I can remember thinking negatively of, is after a while, the emotional scenes just didn't appeal to me anymore; I guess amidst the jokes, some of them felt "too soon"?. But yes, this ranks up there with Winter Soldier for me.
Thanos's appearance was really well done and didn't overshadowed the film at all. He will eventually become the core element to possibly bringing these characters together will possibly The Avengers team or at least one or two of the main characters. Josh Brolin's voice work really brings Thanos to life and I can't wait to see this villain in action with the Infinity gauntlet.
Give the movie an 9 out of 10, the second best Marvel film for 2014 next to "The Winter Soldier".
Finally got around to watch A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More, some damn fine movies I've somehow delayed to watch for too long. Great performance by all actors, especially by Van Cleef, Gian Maria Volonté and Eastwood. He might be a mighty asshole in real life, in regards to his ex-wife, but he's playing a fantastic hard boiled character. Got to refresh my memore of Dirty Harry after watching The Good, The Bad and the Ugly tonight.
Don't spoil me on GotG, release is still three weeks away here.
"Under the Skin" is by far the worst movie I have ever seen.
22 jump street : is better than 21 jump street.
Captain America 2: good
Under the Skin is the worst movie you ever saw? Ahahaha, you must have only watched the highest critically acclaimed movies ever created your whole life. If the movie wasn't for you okay, but it's far from the worst movie, it was a fantastic movie if anything.
Just watched GotG- It was as if I was watching only to wait for the next joke. ahahaha. But I liked it. Chris Pratt was awesome. And my god, how he got so buffed up like that.
Just came back from Into the Storm such an amazing movie it was. Definitely on my top 3 list of best movies of the year (1. Transformers, 2. Into the Storm, 3. Amazing Spiderman). The pv had shown at least two scenes from closer to the end of the movie, but they were just epic to watch in full lenght in the movie (the plane scene at the airport is incredible just as it was in the pvs), Truly we are living in the ends times if such a destructive mindblowing creation can be imagined like that, just one of the most astonishing natural disasters in history, a miracle of nature indeed, with a great cast and excellent way of filming with Trey at the cameras for much of it.
Any comments on the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes? I've yet to see it but I was curious if anyone had seen it....
I thought Apes was pretty good, the signaling between the apes (no speech) made for excellent scenes and some pretty memorable moments, interesting design choice for the movie.
Also that musical score, incredible.
I just came back from watching Guardians of the Galaxy. Good entertainment, nice action but most of all, humor was the highlight for me. I always liked Chirs from Parks & Rec. and I was doubtful how he would fit into a superhero role. He did well. Overall, I enjoyed the movie.
I can't wait for GotG, I'm going to watch it next saturday. As I couldn't see it this week-end, I went to see Lucy. It's entertaining as long as you put your brain offline. It's absolutely stupid but if you can go beyond that, you have scarlet johansson, a good sense of humor, a wonderful pursuit in the streets of Paris and no downtime.
Two weeks ago was Dawn of the planet of the apes and it was spectacular. In my opinion, a great movie, nothing less. The way those apes are animated is exceptionnal. It's hard not to be uninpressed by special effects nowadays but those apes, just great.

I felt like a major emotional factor was DRASTICALLY underused, which is my main complaint, but I won't expand due to spoilers.
I'll get to it after I watch Guardians again this week .
I think I'm looking forward to it being over more than actually seeing the film itself. Says a lot.
