Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

World War Z ended up being much better than I thought it would. Don't expect the movie to be anything like the book (if you've read it). They've simply created a whole new story and slapped the title on it.

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
Maybe society no longer wants the goodie good super hero anymore. Today's society enjoys a Batman who has a edge to him.

The other thing with Superman is his enemies suck; boring as shit.

I hate to say it but the Superman genre may just be dead.

Thats a major reason why people are going to like Batman over Superman. Superman is the 'roll your eyes, common superhero'. By that I mean that he is an alien, thats how he is a super hero. There is no good reason or excuse as to why he has powers. Whereas Batman its different, because he is super rich and got trained by a league of ninja's in the Himalayas. That's more believable and more likely to happen than an alien from another galaxy coming to earth with Super powers.

I think the villains come into play as well. As Batman has some of the best and well Superman have some of the worst if not the worst.

Yes, thats very accurate as well. I think since it seems the new superman franchise will be made very similarly as the batman franchise, I expect Lex Luthor, supermans most famous villian to be in the 2nd movie, much like the Joker was in the second batman movie.

Lex (as we know him) = Boring

They need to jazz him up a bit.

If you want to spend your money, take the wife out for a movie, whatever, go see This is the End. Thats a laugh a minute movie in my opinion.

I'm also curious in checking out The Bling Ring. Anyone see it yet?

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Has anyone seen Kick Ass? I heard good things about it but it was from my comic book friends so their opinions are being thrown out (especially after the new Superman).

What is Kick Ass comparable to?

IT is awesome; somewhere in here I have a review of it. IMO a must see. Part two comes out this summer.

Kick Ass is definitely a good movie, I'm looking forward to seeing the next installment.

Just saw This Is The End last week, I honestly enjoyed the shit out of that movie. If you're a Rogen fan it's definitely a must-see.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Is Kick Ass worth buying in the $7.88 bin at Wal Mart? (Sounds like it) and Can I get a movie comparison like "If you like _______, then you'll like Kick Ass"

And Yes This is the End (Which I've been hyping for a while now) is about as funny as a movie gets. Its similar IMO in terms of laughs as Superbad, 40 year old Virgin and the Hangover 1.

If I found Kick Ass in the cheap bin at my local Walmart, I would definitely buy it. I'm not sure what other movie to compare it to, another action-comedy most likely, but don't expect a parody like (insert whatever lame parody movie has come out recently), I would say it's more similar to The Other Guys in that the comedy stands up as much as the action (aka not in the adult related humor category). It's good but it's not R related humor if you know what I mean. I also concur on This Is The End, it's the best comedy to come out this year imo.
