star wars the force awakens

i realy hope they are gonna anounce that the expended universum being not canon was a joke and the new 3 movies are meant as non- canon revamps of the first 3 movies themselves....seriously....the force awakens is just an other variant of star wars ep 4

Almost every super hero movie. I just don't see the appeal. They all look the same, angsty person with super powers struggling with inner demons or balancing two lives, dress up in colourful suits and make heroic poses that would look daft in real life, destroy half the city while claiming they're saving it. Near the end of the movie it looks like they've lost but, SURPRISE, they gain the upperhand at the last minute and save the day! Woo and stuff.

 

Urgh.. I feel the same. I really tried. People look at me with 2 heads and can't seem to understand why I don't think Captain American or whatever super-hero film of the day is isn't the "best F!&*in' thing eveeeerrr!11"

 

I find them mostly tiresome to watch with characters that are a million miles off this planet, usually quite 2 dimensional with not much to say about society, no good metaphors or meaning to them. Just piss-fest to see how ridiculous they can go with the CGI, explosions etc. I know that's a miserable assessment. They're mostly forgettable experiences.

 

There's a certain group of friends on FB that just over-hype every facet of the film pre-release with these sensationalist comments about how good it looks then curse it for 3 months after release about how they mucked it up.

What?

He's a ripoff artist. Every movie has plot lines/names/even movie titles stolen from other (way more obscure) movies, many of which were 60's spaghetti westerns or Italian horror movies.

 

I don't feel like typing out a novel, Google "Quentin Tarantino steals ideas" or "rips off other movies." I've written the same rant 25 times and don't feel like writing it again

 

I also live in Austin and I've met him on a dozen occasions. He's a colossal blowhard and a racist

Full Metal Jacket. This movie is overrated as f*ck. It has an 8.3 on iMDb, a 95% on RT and a 78% on Metacritic. If I had to score, I'd literally give it at six out of ten. The only saving grace of this movie is the first part that takes place in boot camp. All the scenes in boot camp are amazing, well-acted and are really entertaining. The second they leave boot camp, the story becomes so plain and boring, I almost fell asleep. And seeing how bootcamp is maybe only 30 minutes of the whole movie, I don't see how it gets such a high score when the rest of the film is garbage. If the movie had been about boot camp for the whole runtime, it really could have been something special.

Civil war.

 

SPOILER

 

 

The movie is by no mean "Bad". But i really can't go higher than a 6.5, 7- at best.

 

The first half (and more) of the movie is just plain slow and boring. I like the more "slow, all talking" movies, but i find hard to care of what was going on this time. A supervillain is introduced and quickly dispatched. RDJ is even more depressed than before and the movie lost his wit and funny remarks. His world is turned upside down in the span of a movie (all off-screen). Movie jumpcut from a city to another without leading the story and the audience there, but just by using BIG HUGE LETTERS (AUSTRIA! QUEENS!).

Zemo has a convoluted plan that at times seems to work just by coincidence.

The fight in the airport is cool, but my god, the cgi and constant close camera are horrible.

Cap has a new love out of nowere. Good for him, i guess...

Superheroes are bought in without much hype, vision has been degraded to a family man, hawkeye appears out of nowhere... bah.

Winter soldier. really, the more i try, the least i'm interested in his story.

The only things i really liked were the spiderman-tony segments and part of the fights (but they have become so coreographated that they seems "fake"). Too few to consider this "the best marvel superhero movie".

 

 

PS: not the movie fault, but during the movie someone called Black Panter "catman", and all the believability was lost in a moment.

I know this is not the thread to disagree, but I just wanted to say, that's sort of the point. Tarintino is a student of film, a neurotic pot-smoking asshole who became a brilliant writer and director of long-winded dialogue and non-linear plots. He's like a renaissance artist. It's not what he writes, it's how he writes it.

Yeah, some of the fight scenes seemed a bit stiffly shot to me (plus they often had a quasi-"shaky cam" thing going on). The bit with the helicopter was really well-done, though, over the top or not.

 

I guess one of the biggest problems I had with the movie was that Cap's arguments against oversight (of some kind, at least) just seemed so half-assed, especially when Tony's going out of his way to play nice and even go easy on Bucky. We know there's more to the Winter Soldier situation than meets the eye, but that doesn't have anything to do with the issue of oversight specifically. And it really pissed me off when Black Widow accused Tony of doing it because of "ego" when it's screamingly obvious he's doing it out of a sense of responsibility and guilt.

Well, one can argue that the whole "ironman feels guilt" story arc was a bit forced, too

First, they overplayed ironman depression/sadness (his girlfriend left him, a mother blamed him, he miss his parents... what else, his dog died and the kitchen sinkstarted leaking?)

 

Second, the movie rushed out tony's motivation. "A kid died in sokovia". Bu-hu, let's sign the petition.

To me:

OR tony felt already guilty for creating Ultron (and the angry mother was a bad way to condense this feeling in a single scene)

OR tony didn't feel guilty (because, let's face it, at the end he and others saved the day), and the angry mother is a lazy way to make him change his mind.

And i'm not judging who's right or wring in the "civil war", just the poor explanation and timing behind tony's choise

It just didn't make me laugh all that much. :/

You're right, I don't understand what's funny about the scene of a knight with separate hands and feet still challenging to fight? honestly watching this film movie from the beginning to the end I didn't laugh at all, but there was only one scene that made me laugh, that is the bridge of death scene

Wonder Woman

Aquaman

Black Panther

 

All three are about as generic as a "hero's tale" can get. Aquaman is straight up alive action toy commercial. If you disagree, tell me what was Aquaman's character flaw, moral conflict,  and how has he changed as a character by the end of the story? He is more a plot device than a protagonist.

Drive. I liked the style in it, but for the most part it came off as pretentious sh*te.

 

Another is The Haunting (1963). Went in expecting a fun and creepy haunted house flick from the era but instead got one of the most boring and monotonous films I've ever sat through (with an incredibly insufferable protagonist to boot).

I always thought The Silence of the Lambs was quite overrated. It's good, but not as amazing as some make out. I know that'll piss some people off, but hear me out. Aside from the incredible performance of Anthony Hopkins, I really don't enjoy the movie too much outside of his scenes. I found the rest of it quite boring and pretentious and at some parts badly acted. Anthony Hopkins is the only reason I ever consider rewatching this film, and for that I usually just opt to rewatch the specific scenes on YouTube.
