How awesome would it be to have the last name Spiderman? Like "Hello I'm Henry Spiderman, I'm applying for a job at your accounting firm."

I suppose so, but movies were made to be more ostentatious and rather long winded whether or not it was based off of a comic. I mean, Spiderman movies were fairly lengthier than the Wolverine.  hmpf

Perhaps slightly... I don't know. I thought they were all roughly two hours long. basic movie-length. They certainly weren't any deeper in terms of story or character development. At all. Not sure what your point was there.
I'm wondering if you watched the same film I did. I thought The Wolverine was the deepest, most 'grown-up' of all the X-Men films to date.

They Live! (1988)
I'm here to chew bubble gum and review this movie; and I'm all out of bubble gum.
This is an excellent movie for Action fans, and a good one-timer for avid Sci-Fi fans. They story is awesome and pretty creative, although it is bogged down by many pointless fight scenes and some dragging conversations. The aliens were a nice mix of both cheesy and realistic, which sort of made this movie feel like an homage to older Alien films, in the same way that Mars Attacks did years later. The many fight scenes will please the action fan, but will annoy a Sci-Fi person like me. Although, the main plot was cool enough to make up for the poor parts, so don't completely skip it. Overall, I'd say it's a B+.

Almost; it's a porno about a wrestler and some black guy who both have sunglasses obsessions.

I think that fight scene went on a bit too long, myself, and that it distracted from the main plot. It was a great fight, nevertheless, but it seemed unnecessary to me.

MRM, of course it's too long...that's precisely why it's so great. They Lives has a good concept and cool sci-fi elements, but it's full of cheese.

Prisoners
Wow, what a tense film
It starts off as a depressing kidnapping of two girls story, and their fathers (Hugh Jackman and Terrence Howard) and a detectives (Jake Gyllenhaal) struggle to find them, twists and turns a couple of times leaving you guessing all the way.

Excellent film, right up until the end, recommend it for a gritty thriller.

A few movies I've seen recently;


Legion (2010)

An alright but admittedly interesting film. The storyline was meh, the music was meh, and the characters were meh. I only recognized one of them who was Dennis Quiad, who I've seen in various films. The plot was pretty much predictable about halfway through, and I must admit that the acting wasn't very solid. But it was pretty much just your average apocalypse movie. You stay in one place, defend it (or hold out, for that matter), and you end up living happily ever after with basically one or two main characters left alive, even though you started off with several. At least, most of the time it ends that way. But it was enjoyable. Had it's moments, and I must admit it had good suspense. But it wasn't a fantastic horror/action/whatever movie. Effects weren't bad either, for your average horror movie.
7/10


Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

Alright film. Wasn't anything to boast about though. The effects were good and the music fit well, and the characters were good, along with the acting in general. Good to see Tom Felton getting out of the Wizarding World and getting his butt kicked all the same. But the storyline was very well put together, and I must say I enjoyed it. There were a couple of confusing moments, and parts that didn't make much sense. But it was pretty well put together so it gives itself a nice solid foundation. Very clever and well done.
8.25/10


The Wolverine (2013)


The only thing I could say about this movie, is geez this guy gets shot a lot doesn't he? lol
He just gets shot and keeps on fighting. Badass mother****er. Even when that bitch snake lady poisoned him. But I must admit this movie was rather predictable as well.
But enough spoilers - the movie was alright in general. It had it's moments and it's fight scenes were average. So was the music. Effects were pretty good; the movie in general was rather gory than most other ones I know. The train scene was pretty intense also. But it was interesting, with his powers and all the rest of it. Nothing to boast about (probably because I've never seen the other X-Men movies yet), but it was watchable.
7.5/10


The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013

I really enjoyed this. It was a very good change to the last one, and I really liked the whole 'teaming-up' during the 75th games and the Revolution thing. The storyline was also very good, not to mention the acting. The main actress got a lot more involved in this one, imo. Idk, she just kinda did. The special effects were pretty good, and, just wow, pretty much. I just really enjoyed this film. I don't really have any negative thoughts about it, but I definitely liked it better than the first one. But it's one of those movies that you enjoy, but don't really know what to think about it. You know what I mean? It's a little confusing. But in conclusion, I really enjoyed it. I'll need to start reading the books now.
10/10


And finally:
Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Interesting film. Nothing too much to say about it. Just a good plot and all the rest of it. The actors were very good as well.
8/10

Gone With the Wind

Though very long, it was well worth it. The classic film is now one of my favorites, as it's a great tale of the importance of home and family, while also being a great romance about unrequited love, and a great historical fiction about the Civil War. Vivien Leigh was great as Scarlett, and even her facial expressions were great. Rhett was kind of a jerk IMO, but there are times where he was somewhat like able. The only thing that might turn people away from it is a few racial slurs throughout the movie, but you have to remember it was set during the Civil War and made in 1939,  which both weren't the best time for African Americans in the U.S.

9.5/10

Thor 2? (You're responding to MeatablePie's post, right?)If you like the other Avenger movies, then yes. Definitely. I'd say it's only behind The Avengers and the first Iron Man.

Total Recall (2012)

Very good film. Had a lot of good action scenes and stuff in it. The storyline was good, but I did think that various bits of it were confusing at times. Confusing as in I didn't understand some parts, and confusing as in like "why is it set the way? More info pls". But it was very well done for a Sci-Fi film, and considering most of it was also CGI. Very well done indeed. I've never seen the original one before, but I must say this was pretty good for a remake. The girl with the three tits was a little weird though. Fuckin Asians... The music I enjoyed as well - it kinda jumped around all over the place, but it was good. The actors were very good as well. Good movie.

It was not a good movie. The original was a good movie and this remake ruined it. It was bland and soulless and awful because it was designed to appeal to the new generation, being bland and soulless and awful people.

The original was a cheese-fest, and not a good movie (although it was entertaining. They're different qualities). The remake was pretty shit, and not a good movie (without the saving grace of being entertaining).

I think that Total Recall should probably not be remade again unless it sticks a little closer to the source material next time, and is maybe set in a future where people don't feel the constant compulsion to act like dicks to one another.

Yeah, Meerkat is such an asshole for liking a movie that you didn't, and an even bigger asshole for being conceived at a later date than you were.  roll eyes

I don't know that they are, since its objective was to entertain, and it never tried not to be cheesy, it therefore was roaringly successful and VERY good at what it did.

Steady on, it isn't his fault. You're being a bit too harsh there. Leave the lad alone.

But seriously, Y U SO MEAN TO ME!?! I didn't mean it... Muuum! tongue

Alright, I apologize for rating it so high, but remember how I rate things? I once posted that long post explaining how my rating system works. Perhaps I'll have to watch the original and compare them, but given that I've seen the new one first, I'm don't guarantee I'll enjoy it even more.

Speaking of movies, Christ, I'm just remembering all the others I've seen over the past three months, so I'll write reviews for those when I can be bothered.
