I’ll admit it. I was excited for this movie. Reese is one of my favorite actresses, Chris Pine is always entertaining, and Tom Hardy is the man. So that combination had me excited.
And not to say I was let down, I wasn’t. I liked this movie. But there’s still things I would change.
Cast wise I was happy overall, but the bubble on Chelsea Handler has to burst some time soon. Yeah she’s funny, but her “I’m gonna call things pikachus and vajayjays and talk about penetration” shtick has gotten old.
The movie can be predictable, and some of the action scenes look while others are hard to tell who is punching who. But it’s still a funny movie that’ll make you smile, but let’s just say I’m hoping the DVD has some alternate endings because I could’ve done without the current one.
It’s also kinda funny that Tom Hardy is shy here, when as Bane he will completely kick ass.
Check this one out but take it for what it is.
I hadn’t seen this movie since I was a kid. But man am I glad I watched it. This movie is awesome. It proves the people behind “Batman: The Animated Series” really did know what they were doing. Everything about this is good, the voice acting, the writing, the score. It never felt like one big long episode, but like a well done Batman movie.
The Joker in this is particularly great, shame Mark Hamill retired from the character. He’s so perfect.
If you haven’t seen this movie in a long time, end the drought. You’ll be happy and if you aren’t, the Phantasm is going to come take you down.
It’s got action and it’s fun. They made the Green Lantern look way cooler than the Ryan Reynolds movie did. The art itself wasn’t too great, every man looked the same and Wonder Woman had a jagged face. But it’s a cool movie and worth a watch.
What the hell was this? I watched it, and there was enough going on to keep me watching (by enough going on I mean Gerard Butler shooting a big ass gun) but honestly, what the hell was this movie? The concept behind it is cool, it would probably be a better book. Michael C Hall not as Dexter was good all things considered, as were Butler and Lerman. What I thought was going to be the final conclusion happened with 50 minutes left in the movie, so even more stuff went down.
Should you see it? Probably not.
I watched this on Netflix because, well I don’t know. The guy Dan is funny, and there are scattered funny people in this movie. But frankly I watched it because I invested time into it. I also now have made sure to never follow that rule again. If a movie sucks 45 minutes in, don’t finish it just because you watched it for 45 minutes. Especially if it’s not funny.
This movie sucks. Save your viewing minutes.
This fucking movie. I remember not wanting to review it because I was so pissed about it. I heard the buzz. How it was an under the radar great movie. Fuck the radar. Warrior pisses me off.
I want to hate this movie. And if Tom Hardy wasn’t so goddamn good in it I would. Easily. But he’s a great actor pulling a “I’m going to play a super villain and beat down Batman so I gotta get in ridiculous shape” move. He breaks out, if he hasn’t yet from Inception, and saves this movie from me hating it. And I was shocked but not mad with the Oscar nod to Nolte.
So why do I hate it? Because I was on Xbox Live when I watched this movie, and at almost an hour in (with well over an hour left) I paused it and said to my friend “I’m gonna call it right now. Here’s what I think is going to happen in this movie. And I hope I’m wrong.”
I wasn’t wrong. Most predictable fucking movie ever. And I just said in a previous post how the story of Real Steel was good.
Fuck you Warrior. Here’s the plot: Two brothers enter a MMA tournament for $5million. One is from the Army and knocks the shit out of everyone in sight, one is a teacher who only made the tournament because some guy got hurt. And the teacher is broke and about to lose his house and older and doesn’t speak to Hardy or Nolte.
You figure out the rest. Skip this goddamn movie and see Tom Hardy kick ass as Bane instead.
I hadn’t seen this movie in a while. So when I fired it up I was a bit excited to see everything all over again. They did a lot of things nice in this movie, shame I still have the stink of the sequel on me.
Casting wise they went 3 for 4, which is best player of all time in baseball. Reed Richards and the Thing are both spot on, and while Chris Evans is now Captain America (and a great one) he benefited playing Johnny Storm. The guys were all great. I couldn’t tell you who else I would have in a reboot because the original guys were so good. But Jessica “Peaked years ago” Alba as Sue Storm was a wrong choice. Yeah she’s pretty, but she doesn’t provide anything.
Dr. Doom, Julian McMahon, was great and I’m surprised I haven’t seen him in more movies since. I think he’s totally capable.
It’s a fun movie that will stir emotions inside of you. From sadness (Ben Grimm’s fucking bitch wife) to happiness (Ben Grimm’s new girlfriend) to laughter (anything from Torch) it’s a movie that earns “If it’s on TV I’ll watch it” status.
I seen this movie a lot, but only a few times from start to finish. There’s a lot to like and a lot not to like.
1- Most of the casting was perfect, although they were right in the previous ones too. Particularly great here are Wolverine, Jean Grey, Magneto, Xavier, and Beast. Kelsey Grammer as Beast was the ideal choice. Camille’s former husband was a great Hank McCoy.
2- The special effects. But when you have a budget over $200Million you can make a lot of cool looking shit. No matter, from the Golden Gate bridge scene to the end is a bunch of really great action and visuals.
3- I was never bored in any scene.
1 - Rogue. Anna Paquin was a bad choice. She’s a cooler character than they make her.
2 - Magneto’s pawns. Turtle’s girlfriend from Entourage and the rest of the suck ass mutants he brings on his team are all kinda lame. I rooted extra hard against them.
But I also never knew about the scene after the credits, so that was fun.
This movie is a good one and if you like X Men you’ll like it even more.
I actually watched this one a while ago, I just forgot to write it up. I could have done without most of the humans in this and easily would’ve taken more monkey business.
The big ape on bridge scene from the trailer is the big scene in the movie. Ugh. Show me some more. But given the success, there’s probably going to be another one which should be bananas.
James Franco is good in everything so I’m not let down here, nice performance from John Lithgow, and the supporting cast did a nice job. But Andy Serkis is the star of this movie. He is excellent, and I wouldn’t have argued against the Oscar nom they were pushing for him.
Enjoyed this a lot more than I expected. A perfect movie to have on if you’re playing Madden. (Which is what I was doing)
This movie is not as bad as you think. Once you get over the whole robots fighting thing, which brings me to who cares it’s a movie, you can find a classic rags to riches story told in a new way. Yeah it’s cheesy, but I don’t need gripping experiences in every movie.
Hugh Jackman, obviously needing something to do while they figure out his next Wolverine movie, shines as usual. He’s an actor I feel could play any role well. The kid who plays his son is also great, forgot his name but he’s a kid he’ll get over it. Aside from the chick from Lost and Anthony “I played Tupac” Mackie I don’t know who else was in this. But the people don’t matter. The robots do. They look awesome, they beat the hell out of each other, and it’s something every boy in his youth wishes he could do.
This isn’t a must watch if it’s on the tube, but you could also watch a lot dumber stuff than this.
