    Looper was even better on the second viewing. Great flick.:tup:
    Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira and Domu must have been some of Rian Johnson's influences, lots of shots with the little kid doing his thing remind me heavily of Otomo's comic panels. Actually works pretty well as redemption tale too.
    Also really like it's sheer simplicity in explaining the time travel paradoxes, how changes in the past affect the future characters memories, etc. Felt far like a far more concise and calculated film on 2nd watch. Clever premise, well executed.

    I saw everything.....VCR and cable, my dad was a TV junkie, and he let me watch everything. Grew up watching Blade Runner, Alien, Aliens, Terminator, Thing, Die Hard, Star Wars,Hellraiser, Robocop, Schwarzenegger,Carpenter, Cronenberg, Romero, Friday the 13th, Freddy. I watched Blade Runner endlessly, even though I didn't have a clue what it was about. It was just the coolest shit I had ever seen.
    I failed some church class my mom put me in so I could stay home and watch the extended version of Aliens when they played it on TV.:tup:

    You have good taste KneelB4Me....I remember you from XBL CVS2 as well lol

    Thanks man, same to you :) Those were the days I miss that section of the site!

    Star Trek 2 teaser looks generic but I have faith in Abrams ST1 was great. Still pissed a white guy is playing Mandarin but otherwose Im3 looks like it should be better than 2 which I thought was pretty good. Michael Bay directing FnF6:rofl:

    Don't think I've ever cried at a film, but im sure at least a few have made me feel really sad, UP comes to mind. So yeah now I get Hulu plus free and it's selection is pretty good surprisingly.

    I was thinking, Sir Ben Kingsley isn't white! But then I realised you muddled your movies up. We still don't know exactly who Cumberbatch is, I still think because of the new timeline Khan no longer exist or his role in the ST universe has been switched with that other character that became super human.

    Wow homegirl comes off a bit pretentious a bit. The only reason why GI Joe Retaliation got pulled was because it was stuck between Amazing Spiderman and Dark Knight Rises. That movie wasn't gonna make any money in that slot.

    GI JOE Retaliation got pulled so it can be upgraded to 3D. You dont shelf a movie FOR A YEAR simply because of competition. There were plenty of gaps last year where it could have been placed. But no, they wanted to upgrade it.

    i can top that. no acquaintance ever i've talked to in real life didn't know he wasn't white.

    and Vin Diesel can make a million FaF movies as long as it allows him to make Riddick movies.

    I heard it wasn't just because they're "upgrading" it to 3d. I heard it also did terrible in test screenings and they want to make it so Channing Tatum doesn't die in the beginning.

    edit: what happened to that girl's legs?

    ABC's of Death is my new favourite hated movie. So many confusing ass episodes, and some that were either phoned in, or just plane stupid. But then you get solid gold like L and D. I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it. But it's definitely worth a watch.

    That was all done before the movie was supposed to be originally released. Channing had already filmed alternate endings.

    also another thing...kid snake-eyes told me he got paid again for part 2 even though he's not in it. apparently their gonna use footage of him from part 1 at somepoint. probably some kind of refresher flashback scene.

    Finally got around to watching watchmen. I know lots of nerds hate it but I didn't. I don't usually watch movies but as part of Chinese study I use ppptv to view English movies with Chinese subtitles.

    Thought it was a good movie. The owl costume guy looked kinda gay and ridiculous. Actually all the super heroes did but that's my only complaint. It was a dark and gritty film, except for the gay costumes, and that's what I like in my comic movies. Not so much the sunshine and lollipops of avengers.

    Don't care if it didn't capture the graphic novel perfectly because I never read it so it's a complete non factor for me. But the cinematography felt like I was reading a comic so that was good. The black freighter cartoon was good too.

    I guess I can understand. Graphic novels are a unique medium that no movie will ever capture perfectly.

    have you read the comic book?
    Snyder is a fanboy. fanboys can sometimes be shortsighted when reproducing things. they are prone to fetishize the original work instead of paying homage. one of the important things about The Minutemen and The Crimebusters is that all of them, aside from Dr. Manhattan, are REGULAR HUMANS (with problems). i cannot stress enough- REGULAR HUMANS (Moloch just had funny shaped ears).



    @ 0:55
    @ 1:05
    @ 1:24
    @ 1:56
    @ 2:03

    that ain't regular human shit.

    Snyder took some of the weight out of certain scenes by trying to make the characters look cool (fetishzing). Nite Owl II and Silk Spectre II did fight a bunch of dudes in an alley in the comic, but it wasn't that graphic, and i'm almost sure they didn't kill anyone (just knocked them out quickly). the problem comes when Rorschach is interrogating that guy in the bar and breaking his fingers. Nite Owl II is upset Rorschach is breaking the dude's fingers, when he had no problems KILLING people while on a date; he and SS II were laughing during and after the fight.

    don't even get me started on the rape attempt scene. that was supposed to be horrifying. Snyder turned it into a comedic dance. "he body slammed her onto the pool table to put her in rape position and the balls went in the holes LOL!" get outta here with that crap.

    his "Dr. Manhattan remembers stuff" is amazing though. love that scene.

    the whole thing behind REGULAR HUMANS needing to be stressed is because of the GIANT ALIEN PSYCHIC VAGINA SQUID Ozymandias spawned out of nowhere. it was so jarring, all world leaders joined together out of complete fear. the movie's "Manhattan did it" means every world power is going to join together out of hatred of the USA. that's a serious difference, and basically does nothing to create the peace Ozymandias attempted though his genocide.

    The fact that Watchmen is one of THE must-read comics while the movie is roundly received with "Meh, it's alright, I guess" is proof positive that Watchmen is more than just taking the superhero genre and ramping it up with more violence and insanity... which is all that a lot of people seem to understand.

    but its pretty accurate

    only reason skyfall wasnt a bad movie is because qos was REALLY shitty. word on the street is people compare javier bardem/agent to tdk/joker which doesn't even make any sense.

    what...the fuck?

    Skyfall's a legitimately excellent Bond movie. All the video did was MST3K certain plot points and call it a trailer.

    The fuck kind of trailer runs for five minutes, anyway?

    Okay:
    Berenice Marlohe is mesmerizing. She's like a non-evil backstabbing "Sophie Marceau." So many fine French actresses. Javier Bardem is like that contraption holding his face together, WICKED. The "time and place" killzone transition was cool.
