Mredskins post of a review is pretty spot on, I'd maybe give it a 4 out of 5 because I thought it had more flaws with the story and forced romance and the end is something my friend were talking about for about an hour after we got out of the midnight release and 90% not in a good way.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I'd give it 4.75/5. Its unquestionably the best comic book movie I've ever seen and one of the best movies I've ever seen. I did not notice product placement. Everything about the film was perfect. The only time I was taken out of the movie was when superman kissed Lois near the end. The movie made me feel they cared about each other as people, but I did not pick up any romance. Other than that, everything about the movie was perfect. I haven't seen n action movie this well cast in my life.

I do not understand the 57% rotten tomatoes rating. It seems critics are mostly upset that it doesn't have humor or playful stupidity if the donner films. For which I'm thankful. This movie makes the dinner films look like "batman and robin". It's brilliant and ill be seeing it multiple times in the theaters.

A few friends and I are looking forward to seeing This is the End on Sunday, been hearing really good things.
Saw This is the End today and thought it was great. Definite bromance kinda flick but I thought it was epic.

As a side note since we have some hard nosed athiests, I'm not sure if its the best film for them. It was a little preachy but not offensively preachy. If you're open minded, you'll breeze through this film and have a great time.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

super man is good. not enough explosions or cgi though :P and a bit cheesy.

star trek is better, and i'd check that out first in case you've been living under a rock.

after earth is terrible. will smith got the movie made so his son could star in it, but dude can't act. I saw it cause will smith is really good, but he spends the movie as a supporting actor sitting crippled in a chair. lame.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

what standard US rating system? is it an iso standard or a ieee standard? what are the UART opcodes? :P that link you threw up is just an opinion puff piece. meaningless. and pointless.

oh yeah, gatsby, decent, not amazing. I thought the 2010 rap music throughout the party scenes in the first 30 minutes was ridiculous for a period piece, and the casting wasn't a good fit imo. it's faithful to the book though from what i remember.

Look kid, go to your TV Guide and look up a movie and you'll see that every movie rating is from 0 stars to 4 stars (with half stars in between). Pick up a USA Today or Washington post or New York Times. It's all out of 4 stars.

5 star ratings tend to be with cars, restaurants and hotels. You want a source for that you can go look it up on your own time.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - IMDb

10 Stars

World War Z - Rotten Tomatoes

Uses a percentage

Seems to me it depends on the "reviewer" not a "standard" as you so proudly seem to have posted by not trying to be a "troll".

I hope you all know that the standard US rating system is out of four stars, not five. Not trying to troll, just saying

Another prime example of you posting misinformation without a source or better yet confusing your belief/guess/ opinion as fact. Please carry on with your worthlessness.

All I'm saying is that the five star scale isn't used for movies, it's used for cars, hotels, restaurants. You ever heard of a five star hotel? Or a five star restaurant?

That's all kids. There's your movie lesson of the day.
wtf are you going on about. as long as the rater says x out of 4 or y out of 5 the reader on a Skins site gets the idea. I understood what the other posters were saying who the heck cares if US standard is out of 4 or 5.

CultBrennan59 you are a flipping joke. That is your lesson for the day.

Also the standard scale for rating posters on a message board is 5 stars.

CultBrennan59 = .5* out of 5*

Lol I gotta agree with you. I think the 5 star system is the most widely used but its not a standard system. People use whatever system they want.
