I won't correct you, but I don't have to save you either.

Come on, it was the only film to accurately depict Batman's homo-erotic nipple fetish.

You're forgetting Batman Forever, which actually won an award for "Most Gay Undertones ever featured in a Single Film".

Also Jim Carey in a body stocking.

Funny thing about Batman & Robin is that Alfred designs Batgirl's costume for her. She's his niece, and ignoring the utterly irresponsible act of encouraging her to go out and risk her life crimefighting, he actually designs a tight leather bondage outfit for her to wear. When I saw that I just thought Alfred must be a really filthy old bastard.

Silent Hill: Revelation 7/10

An alright film, good in parts but I enjoyed the game way more.  One of the better game adaptions, though.

Ender's Game: 7.5/10
Pretty good movie with some cool looking enemies (which isn't the best word for them, but whatever) and a pretty good message.

Scream
I think that this is an alright movie, the plot and effects could have been improved. I also feel that it did have some good spots in the movie and overall showed the main idea of the movie quite well, considering the fact the movie is a little outdated and ignoring most of the corny parts.
6.5/10

The Matrix
This movie was amazing! It really made you question reality and had great effects, the story was spectacular and it makes you look at things in different point of veiws. I personally loved it!

When I first saw the Matrix, I had heard nothing about it, seen no previews, had no idea what it was about. I saw the title on a poster at the cinema and decided to take my chances. One of the best surprises of my life.

I love the Matrix. It's one of my favourite movies, and the effects still hold up pretty well today.

Also, I never saw the sequels. I don't really plan on it, either; it's certainly a movie that didn't need a sequel.

Not really effects, just more of the make up and stunts.

Hmm that's interesting to say about a high budget 90s horror film. I don't want to say it's a generation preference since I'm only 20 myself but I also do quite like the Scream movies even if they are dated.

I'm a huge Matrix fan, as well. It has the perfect mix of Sci-Fi and Creepy, two genres I love. I think it's one of the best films made between 2000(ish)-2010. It does seem, however, that not that many people have actually seen it, although they have heard of it. It's probably just the people in my area who are like that, though.Uncultured Swines.....

The sequels aren't great, but they do keep the same style/ambiance and I really enjoyed them for that.  One scene in particular had my heart pounding so hard (in spite of the fact I knew it was CG) I'm surprised no one could hear it!  And there's only one (to me) cringeworthy scene.

The action scenes remain fun to watch in the sequels, but the story became so overly convoluted and full of itself that I just wanted to shut my brain off. The Architect scene at the end of Reloaded has to be some of the biggest bullshit in any movie ever. The movie already had a complicated premise, but that went so far off the deep end that it comes off as pretentious nonsense.

So much better. The earth parts are still the worst but they're mostly used sparingly and they don't dwindle too much on stupidness and more or less get straight to the point. Although Jane Foster's character is just there to move the plot along she really has no character and I do not like her or Kat Denning's character really at all.

Interesting. With the first movie, I felt that I was alone in liking the Earth parts more than the Asgard parts. Something about Thor adapting to a completely unfamiliar area and seeking a way to restore his former glory really grabbed me. Also, Natalie Portman. Thor's Asgard friends were boring, which prevented me from enjoying the movie as much as I should've.

That said, I've been meaning to see The Dark World for nearly a week now. I keep forgetting.

Yeah see I found the earth stuff meandering and I wanted very much to explore more of Asgard and the characters there with Dark World does. I mean I like Thor being the fish out of water because Hemsworth is a funny guy but that meant I had to spend so much more time with Kat Dennings.

Fair enough.

On the topic of Superheroes, I just saw Man of Steel.
It was enjoyable, but I thought it was a bit dull because of how repetitive and drawn out the action sequences were. Also, there must have been millions of people killed in all those random explosions.

Also, I liked the really slow pace in the start. I like slowness in these kind of movies.

The thing that bothered me about them in the first movie is they were billed as the greatest warriors next to Thor and in the beginning they put up a good fight against the frost giants, but near the end they got their asses handed to them by the Destroyer and they looked like stumbling buffoons

Grown Ups 2

Personally I don't think it's as good as the first but it's still pretty funny. Adam Sandler of course was great, I just feel some of his, as well as other characters, had some pretty corny lines that tried to be funny but weren't. Though, there were some funny lines and action scenes too so that really boosted the pionts for me.

6.5/10

Thor 2 was pretty sweet. 

It's going to be a long wait for Avengers 3 to wrap up the Infinity Gauntlet story line that they are slowing developing.

Man of Steel.

The massive collateral damage was the best part.

I know what you mean though. But Superman's battles have never interested me at all because he's too powerful.

Me too. I think it's because we're already fairly familiar with the characters and have seen them engage in exciting exploits many times before. Now we want to get to know them as people. I think that was what I liked about Ang Lee's Hulk.

I didn't think Thor 2 was as good as the first.

It wasn't bad by any means, but it felt like the script was re-written to pump it full of funny Joss Whedon-y dialogue, ala The Avengers, but it just ended up being full of downright horrible dialogue that's trying too hard, ala Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"I'll see you in hell, monster!"


Everything but the dialogue was good, though.


The best bit, by a mile, was the scene during the end credits, setting up

Saw Captain Phillips in the cinema a while ago, it was actually fantastic and if anything it made me like Somalians even more. Probably T.Hank's best movie since Cast Away although I'd still put that movie ahead of this one. 9/10
Other random movies:

Man of Steel: Pretty good for a superhero movie, of which I can't say I'm a fan. Ultimately though, probably not that memorable. Also they totally ripped off the ending flying battle stuff from The Matrix Revolutions. 7/10

Pink Flaminos: Very entertaining once you get passed the awkward and terrible seeming beginning and begin to feel the flow and style. Very easy to see why this is considered the first cult classic.

The Way Way Back: This is written by the dean from Community, just like The Descendants. I wouldn't say this is as good as that film, but this is still a pleasant experience. Sam Rockwell has a great character and Steve Carrell plays one of the most hateable movie characters you'll ever see. I couldn't believe how much AnnaSophia Robb has grown up since Bridge to Terrabithia. 8/10

The Kings of Summer: Another "coming of age" movie, one of my favourite genres actually. This one starts out with so much promise, you think its going to be amazing, but it dawdles on and never quite fulfills itself. Some strangely out of place moods too, just something missing. Great characters though. 7.5/10

The Hunger Games
Truthfully a great movie. The acting was almost spot on, the plot was phenominal, it was very exciting and I loved how much action was packed into it. The climax was amazing as well as the set. The scenery was brilliant, it was also quite low on the amount of mistakes a movie normally has. The directiong was alright, but it really helped set the mood of the movie. 8.5/10

Back To The Future
Defidently one of JJ Fox's best. It's quite interesting and is a real attention grabber. The plot was great and the acting was fantastic. Some of the jokes were kinda corny but it was a really good movie overall. 8/10

Journey to the Center of the Earth
I really loved this movie. It proves science wrong while creating a brilliant story. This illustrious film contained a strong plot, great effects, and great acting. 7.5/10

I actually liked the Hunger Games much, much less when it got to the actual surviving in the forest part. Before that, it was quite a good and strange science fiction movie. Then it descended into dumb teeny bop crud :/

Seeing as Back to the Future has been mentioned....

Back to the Future I
- Very original and memorable, with an excellent and suspenseful storyline that kept you hooked from the very first scene. I enjoyed the jokes from this one alot, myself. I'd say this one had the best soundtrack, though- can't beat 'Power of Love' by Huey Lewis!- 9/10

Back to the Future II
- I find this one to be the very best movie of the trilogy. It has surprisingly good special effects (Not so much for the 3D Jaws, but hey, at least it's still nostalgic), a great storyline that was even better than the first's, alot of creative concepts, plenty of suspense, and some good jokes. I loved how many different time periods the Team went to throughout the film; it makes the movie seem longer than it is! As a side note, I noticed that the music in some scenes sounds like it's been used directly from Rodger Rabbit's soundtrack - that's probably because Robert Zemeckis directed both films, though.  - 10/10

Back to the Future III
- Maybe it's just because I'm not a huge western fan, but I think this one's the weakest of the three, even though it is still a great film. The way it continued the Sequel was very well-planned, and it worked seamlessly. The main story of Doc meeting a Woman he loves didn't hook me as much as the first two film's stories did, although it paid off well in the end. I enjoyed the scenes with Buford Tannen, the western version of Biff, as they were all very suspenseful. The last few scenes with Marty climbing on  the Train were very suspenseful as well. The shot of the Train being able to travel through time was interesting too, and it wrapped up Doc's story very well. - 8/10
