^ Finchers a good one. Seven was a great flick as was social network. He also did fight club which is widely considered a great movie. I thought it was ok.

Lee Unkrich. Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. (co-director but still counts), and Toy Story 3 (which he directed by himself). Those movies are good no matter how old, smart, or anything else you are.

I personally think Tarantino is super overrated. I'd agree about someone naming David Fincher and if he keeps up the pace he's on, Ben Affleck.

Silver Linings for me was all the about the message and superior acting. Lawrence shows why she is going to become the best actress on the planet shortly. De Niro is the De Niro of old and steals scenes from Cooper the entire movie.
Flight was good! I need a good movie tonight to take my mind off life. Thanks for the recommendation.

Yeah Affleck has been doing real well in the directors chair. I still haven't seen Gone Baby Gone but the Town was good and Argo was great.

Speaking of Fincher, another great movie he did which didn't get much attention but was really good was Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. That was one of my favorites a few years ago.

Gone baby gone is flat out great.

Argo to me was good, but a little over rated. Really like The Town, Renner is excellent in that.

Dragon Tattoo was excellent, a little long in the end, but still very good.

Weird thing was at the begginning of the movie that chick was hideous, by the end of the movie i wanted to make her my number one f*ck buddy. dont know if id take home to mom

100% on the chick. It was her, lets say, 'desire' and her being up front, cut the bs attitude toward the end of the movie that made her do a complete 180 for me.

Plus Rooney Mara is sexy when she isn't dressed up like a gothic freak.

Its funny, because the whole time I was watching the movie last night, I was thinking of this quote you said.

Folks, if you haven't seen Superman, just wait. Wait for it to come to HBO, Redbox or Netflix. It was bad. There was absolutely no direction in this long 2 1/2 hour flick. Just when the movie seemed like it was going to go somewhere and be good, it quickly changed direction and got bad again.

And then its like Amy Adams character (Lois Lane) its like she just appears and is like 'Hey I'm Lois Lane' and now I'm going to basically turn into the main character for the rest of the movie. Superman himself didn't speak that much (or seem like he was on camera that much). The whole Krypton planet scenes were just dumb, and took up a good portion of the movie. The movie had a lot of flashbacks to when Clark was a kid and how he couldn't use his powers, but they felt like they had to remind the audience that 10 times.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen. But its definitely up there in terms of worst comic book movies. Spiderman 3, Green Lantern, and Captain America are all pretty bad IMO, but Spiderman 3 and Captain America may actually be better than this one. Hell, the more I think about it, the Superman they made back in '05 may have actually been better than this one.

3.5/10
