Scarlett Johannson was wasted in her role here and I know she is a good actress (in other movies).
Can't believe how lame the story is. The special effects went from horrible to pretty good. Please tell me the budget isn't 200+ million.
Entertainment value is about a 6.5/10, so not bad. So many things were unintentionally funny, so that helps. I was thinking this was the dumbest movie i've seen in awhile and makes "Independence Day" look really intelligent. No kidding.
For pure, dumb entertainment, that movie has them all beat. Entertainment value is like a 10/10. The idea of hacking an alien's mothership using a laptop..in space is hilarious. I guess they used Alien Wi-Fi.
I hate to admit it, but during the end of this movie I wanted Godzilla to show up.
BTW this movie reminded me too much of "Crysis 2".

Well, with your opinion of this,  you are clearly in the minority.wink_face.gif

Maybe he writes for the Wall Street Journal

Finally got around to Prometheus.

 

8.5/10

 

I love sci-fi films like this. They intrigue me, especially when the cinematography is this well done. 

post #11809 of 16083

I watched Headhunters, an action/suspense thriller on Netflix.  It's a Norwegian film and I think quite well done.  I'd say 8/10.

Lawless, 9/10. Gets a bonus point for being based on a first-person true story, of a depression era bootlegging band of brothers. I thought it was very well done on all levels.

The American, 5.5/10. A kind of stylistic homage to 50's-era spy flicks, it quickly degenerates into a caricature of itself and by the end I just didn't care anymore.

Ghostbusters, 9/10. A true classic! The long-awaited sequel (5/10) didn't do justice to it; I hope they don't remake this one.

Please tell me you didn't just link me to that...

 

No such thing as a movie everyone could like. Directors seem to keep trying for this but it never works out..

I think Ron Howard, Spielburg and James Cameron does this.

 

Movie reviews are nothing more than an opinion. What annoys me are the critics who think they can say what movie is good and bad and anyone who says otherwise is stupid if you don't agree.

Ebert seems to do this a lot. Saying such nonsense as that they haven't seen enough movie etc.

 

BTW it's amusing though how there's so many reviewers out there who automatically seem to hate the very popular movies. I'm definitely not that way, but i've seen so many movies there's not enough out there that's very original. I mean seriously..how many super hero movies do we need already... now they have a Marvel film studio..what the heck.

I guess it depends on how much you like super heroes. That is almost like saying "how many comic books do we need already". Lots of fans so there will be lots more movies.
post #11813 of 16083

Super Hero movies are some of the few movies I really look forward to. They're always fun and even if the acting is terrible they're usually fun to watch. 

 

Screw Ant Man though. He's lame. Cancel that flick. Finish Black Panther first.

post #11814 of 16083
Yea I agree. I like the darker route they went with the Batman movies. That is exactly what I was hoping was the reason they re-did Spiderman so soon to make it darker. Oh well it was still fun.
post #11815 of 16083

I'm of the unpopular opinion that some things are just objectively bad. Ecks vs. Sever, for instance. And Katy Perry. Guess I'm just a snobby critic. ^^ I think that Ebert is one of the least snobby critics in existence though--he's actually my favorite, because I think I 'agree' with him less than I do any other critic, but I never feel insulted by his negative reviews of movies I love, and vice versa. Even when we sharply disagree, I nearly always find something worthwhile or eye-opening in his reviews, hence my appreciation of him.

 

Anyways:

 

Lincoln (2012): 9/10

 

A few minor, but nonetheless annoying, Spielbergian moments aside, this is a fantastic film--maybe Spielberg's best since Saving Private Ryan. Day-Lewis is probably guaranteed an Oscar for this role, and the other principal actors aren't slouching, either. Toss in dark, lovely cinematography and a good script and you're left with one of the finest movies this year.

No. No it most certainly is not.

10/10 Woody Allen at his autobiographical best

post #11819 of 16083

I need to give some of Woody's films more of a look. I always enjoy when the dialog is written in a way where it drives the film, but there just aren't that many screenwriters/directors who can pull that off. I'll watch pretty much anything from Q.Tarantino for that very reason. I know that Woody is known for his scripting as much or more than his direction, so I think I'd like to see more of his films. I saw Midnight in Paris earlier this year and thought it was great. Obviously he's got an entire body of work that I've not appreciated, though, so I think it's about time.

Watched Training Day for the first time last night, don't know why I haven't seen it before. Great movie. 

Also watched Bad Boys 2 just before that. It was funny, but I just prefer realistic police movies.
