X-Men Days of Future Past:
Captain America 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past both look promising. Waiting for the "Amazing Spiderman 2" trailer next.
Thanks again for the post, goldb.
Forget all of these blockbuster superhero movies :
Aside from the trailer spoiling the whole movie, why did it take them soooo long to make a movie from one of the most famous toys of the world!?
Saw Michelangelo inbetween the forum scene, I hope he get's more than that little cameo.
Anyone watched 12 years a slave yet?
It's going to be ages before its released here.
Desolation of Smaug looks pretty good! The Hobbit was a great movie as it was, so if the sequel is any better, minds will be blown.
Now you see me is such an amazing movie. Can't believe it took me so long to watch it. Morgan Freeman was faultless as usual, and the dude from The Social Network was just as good. His voice is just made to play witty sharp mouthed characters. I don't think there are very many people in Hollywood that can do douchebaggery like he can. The hulk did a pretty good job in this too.
Anyway, it's definitely worth a watch if you haven't already seen it..and even if you have, see it again
I saw Thor 2 and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on wednesday. While I'd never seen the first installment, the movie did an amazing job to summarise it, whilst also maintaining the fun start to the film and also kept it brief. The movie itself, I'd say is pretty straight forward, as you'd expect from an animation aimed at a younger audience. It does though, not lack or let down in its humour, soundtrack and music, characters and numerous, numerous food puns. I would've gladly gone to see the film for the puns alone. Glorious stuff, and brilliant how creative the names, and foodimals( food+animals) designs were.
Thor: Dark World was for me, better than the first. Before the movie was released, I'd heard that the Loki character had been given more scenes in the film than originally planned and how wonderful that made it. Tom Hiddlestone is simply brilliant as Loki. The comedy from the first movie carries over to this one too and there's many gags and references about the Avengers and the New York incident.
The disappointing part for me is that there seemed to be a lot of talk, though for good reasons, but it seemed excessive at times, and would rather have had it replaced with some more action scenes. I do not like Natalie Portman or her character. The moment she appears on screen, everything goes tits up.
Also I would've liked for the Warriors Three and Sith to have had a bigger part in the film; it seems even less than what they had in the first. Heimdall got more screen time though.
Action was never going to be a problem, with the final fight sequence reminded me a bit of the one from Man of Steel. If you've seen both, you'll know what I mean.
Saw Riddick, mediocre but entertaining to watch, clearly limited by budged as it seems or it was all wasted
The Wolverine was similar, but Logan being
Didn't expect We're the Millers to be any good, but it was probably the most entertaining of the three, but those body short with Aniston stripping in her movies are too much. Yeah we already got that you are a 40somthing year old woman with a fit body.
Now You See Me's first three quarters were decent. I found it really entertaining until the last quarter. And that plot twist was just uninspired and meh.
How was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2? The first one was pretty good.
I watched Jack Reacher today and I must say this movie was really good. It's an action thriller in the seventies style. No superfluous action scenes with an unbelievable amount of gun shots, bombed cars and impossible car chases. A decenty storytelling movie with great acting of Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike
An unexpected nice surprise and I hope that Jack Reacher will get a sequel
