This question was asked at the Comic Con last year. Would the endings be different had Firefly not been cancelled?  Joss Whedon replied that "I wouldn't have killed any character".

 

But, as much as I liked the movie, I'd still like the show to come back. There's a dearth of good Sci-Fi shows as of now.


Yeah. Defiance isn't too bad but its nothing to get excited over....also poor writing choices; like the word "shtako".

Gangster Squad, 7/10

 

Zero Dark 30, 7.5/10

 

I guess was hoping for a bit more depth from both of these. I'm a fan of Sean Penn, but he didn't quite do it for me as a ruthless gangster. The fist fight at the end was just stupid, I felt like I could take him lol. Great cast in that one overall though. As for ZD30 it would have been great to see a bit more of the context as far as Pakistan was concerned. Both movies were okay I suppose.

Bleh. The reviews are just ok, and the premise is a bit tried. Or maybe I'm biased.

 

I still wonder if HBO had taken up Firefly. There's lesser restrictions in terms of content, it can be made more realistic. The budget wasn't that high to begin with. Even 10 episodes a season would do great.

Sometimes I think it could've been the Frasier of Sci-Fi genre, because of the writing and acting.

I thought this movie was great. I have tons of respect for a film when it's entirely, or nearly entirely, dialogue driven and it's able to keep me engaged from start to finish. If you like the dark comedy genre, check this one out. 

 

"It's a Disaster" - 8.6/10

Just watched the original "Night of the Living Dead". No rating really necessary....it's the granddaddy of all zombie flicks!

Are you getting pre-tuned for World War Z?

75% on Rottentomatoes by critics for a Zombie flick, now that's unusual.

 

My favorite zombie film Dawn of the Dead 2004 version.  The 1979 version is not far behind.

I agree with this.

Not with this… That movie looks beyond bad, like I am Legend (which was already a pretty bad film) with a pacifist hippie in the lead role trying to save saving the planet against a horde of Beliebers.

I'll reserve judgement till I see the film. I miss read Beliebers, I thought you meant Bieber.

I have made my judgement, will wait for Bluray. And of course not Bieber, only an angry pack of his demon spawn followers

Anyone here read the book (World War Z)? I love the book--it's one of the best modern thrillers I've ever stumbled across, and I knew there was no way that any movie based off it would ever do it justice, given the structure of the novel. But the trailers for the film look like they didn't even try--they just took the title and did away with most of what made the novel such a memorable experience. Granted, that's just what I can see from the trailers--I will be checking the film out to see if my suspicions are correct. And there is always the possibility that my suspicions will be correct but that it will be a fine film in its own right. Looking forward to seeing what other people have to say about it here.

That seems to be what everyone who had read the book is saying about the movie. I've never read the book but from what I've been told, the zombies in the book are not those fast Usain Bolt type zombies.

I'm gonna go watch it tomorrow, I hope it don't suck.

(Clark wanders through an ancient Kryptonian scouting ship; Jor-El hologram appears)

 

The Most Important Scenes from Man of Steel (As I Remember Them)

 

Jor-El: Hey! I shot you into space when you were a baby!

Clark: Dad?

Jor-El: That’s me! Okay, let me give you the lowdown. Your name is Kal-El, you’re a Kryptonian, our planet Krypton blew up, and all the Kryptonians are dead except you and our most dangerous criminal, Zod.

Clark: That’s unfortunate.

Jor-El: Also I kind of hid all of Krypton’s genetic code inside you so that you are the key to restarting the Kryptonian race and Zod’s kinda going to be looking for that.

Clark: Um, do you want me to restart the Kryptonian race?

Jor-El: I'm honestly not sure.

Clark: Then why did you stick the Codex in me?

Jor-El: In retrospect, it may have been a poor idea. On the other hand, if you do decide to start the Kryptonian race, this scout ship has a bunch of empty babies in our underwater tree pod room. All you have to do is stick the DNA right in them. There's a little hole. It's unfortunately placed, though.

Clark: Uh… I’ll pass for now.

Jor-El: Oh! I also made you a sweet costume that looks the underwear of our home planet!

Clark: What?

Jor-El: Well, normally on Krypton we wore ornate dresses and things or elaborately overdesigned battle armor, and we wore a skintight leather suit underneath it. So that's what I made you.

Clark: Not the actual clothes? Or the battle armor?

Jor-El: Nope! Oh, and I put a cape on it too! Kryptonians often wear capes with their clothes and armor!

Clark: …but not on their underwear?

Jor-El: Oh, god no. You’d look like an idiot.

Clark: Hey. If this is a random Kryptonian spaceship from 18,000 years ago, why does it have a suit you made me with our house emblem on it inside?

(Jor-El is silent for a moment, then picks up holographic stick and jabs himself in his stomach)

Jor-El: Sorry, I’ve been stabbed! I’m dying!

Clark: You’re a hologram. You can’t die.

Jor-El: I had a really good answer, too!

Clark:

Clark: I can still see you. You’re just laying down.

Clark:

Clark: Fine. (leaves)
