Thread: Wot films are you watching?

Saw Man of Steel. It's ridiculous without realising it or intending to be.
The baddies are space nazies in skeleton outfits and the main enemy looks like Fred Durst as a 50 year old.
Never seen a film before which uses so much of the dialogue to explain what's going on, just in case you couldn't follow it.
If you like people smashing each other through buildings for an hour while coming out with dialogue as good as "There's only one way this ends; either you die, or I do", without a hint of it all recognising how silly it is (ala The Avengers) I suppose it must be a hell of a film, because there's fuck loads of both

I watched End of Watch and was [spoiler]tearing up at the end. The endings to these kinds of stories always resonate with something deep within me. Though I am not a cop and don't associate with any, this movie feels like it could represent an authentic LAPD experience. I found it notable that the female cop duo was really only around to clean up after the two male cops. Anna Kendrick is always a pleasure to watch as well, even though her role in this movie is kinda limited. I'd definitely recommend this one.

Went to see Man of Steel.
I enjoyed it. Like all Zack Synder's movies, it was a crap plot but my god was it a sight to behold. Train, to the face.

Thought plot was adequate actually, about on par with the avengers.

Yeah it was what I expected, just most of the people I know who are saying it's a crap movie are blaming the plot. These people were expecting too much. And you're right, it's plot is certainly on par with the avengers

People just like to moan and think belittling a plot of an action film makes them look super intellectual. Same goes for the anti popular game hipsters.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

On which note TRON - Legacy was far better than the original in every way.

Not seen that, then again I never liked the original either.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

Not seen the new Star Trek yet, but I never really like the last one much. I generally don't like JJ Abrams films though.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

Saw Super last night.
Actually a pretty decent film, but it, like Kick-ass, suffered too much from trying to be gory and edgey. That being said, it actually had good acting (at least, compared to the cast of Kick-ass), so it was still quite enjoyable.
Of the three "Person becomes comic book superhero to fight crime in a realistic world" movies of the past few years, I still think Defendor was the best. All three movies (well, comic as well for Kick-ass, whatever) consider the social ramifications of sucha n action, but Defendor was the only one to truly focus on what would drive a person to do that in the first place (Kick-ass: He was a bored douche bag. Super: He was batpoop insane and wanted to protect someone he cared about).Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I think if movie blockbusters are going to be 2 and a half hours long you definitely need a good plot that is quite engaging and works at least.

Not every film needs to be a good plot. There will be blood.... acclaimed film nominated for awards. Most boring drawn out film ever.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

I admire the ambition of the Wachowski's & Tom Tykwer to actually attempt to film the book (it strikes me a HBO TV mini series would of been a better vehicle given the novels complexity), but they're hampered by their dogged insistence in reusing all of their actors in myriad roles through out each of the time periods the story-line takes place in and it just doesn't work that well in reality, Vs looking incredibly jarring and taking you out of the scene because regardless of how much make up they plaster on people their racial physiology still comes through (Halle Berry & Doona Bae in white face both look awkward and the Caucasians as future Koreans is just...off). They're also not helped by Doona Bae's unfortunately incomprehensible English accent, or a strict adherence to the post fall cant that futuristic Tom Hanks & Halle Berry converse in (which was hard enough to unravel in the books, let alone try and digest on the fly).
On the positives it's a visually impressive film, and well constructed in terms of interweaving the related narratives, just unfortunately let down by some ill considered decisions. If you've read the book then you'll probably enjoy it to a degree (although they do take some broad liberties in that regard), but I'd imagine if you're unfamiliar with the book you might well be perplexed by the whole affair.
