Wouldn't waste your money on Lawless. Unless you've actually seen it and liked it of course.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Yeah saw it twice in theatres. Some reason it seems not many ppl enjoyed it lol. I guess I just really enjoyed the characters of Forrest and Charlie Rakes in it so much, then again im the same person that loved John Carter so maybe my taste in movies isnt perfect.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I personally enjoyed Lawless minus the ending. Hardy was great in his role as usual and so was Guy as the main villain. It wasn't a great movie by any means but enjoyable with some brutal scenes. Could have been stronger with a better lead other than Shia. I watched it on DVD the other day, actually.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I actually thought John Carter was decent for a family action flick and thought most people were overly harsh on it. It wasn't that good by any means but I kind of enjoyed it while it was on and I wouldn't say it was terrible and it didn't offend me like a lot of people. It did it's job fine. I never read the book, which might be the reason.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I didn't even think Shia was bad in Lawless and I can't normally stand the guy. He's not why it sucked to me. I can't really get into why it's awful but it has to do with a scene involving FORREST.

It's just a bad script overall. And nowhere near enough Gary Oldman.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

La Beef or whatever his name is was actually good in Lawless.

Gangster Squad does look really good. Thought some of Gosling's lines in the trailer seemed a bit dodgy though and I'm a huge Gosling mark. Penn looks really suited to that kind of roll though, surprised he's not really played that type of character before. Maybe he has and I'm just forgetting it.

Which scene might that be?

And while I don't think Shia was bad or brought the movie down, I just feel it could have been a stronger film with a better lead + better writing.

Agreed on the need for MUCH more Oldman!

Spoiler for Lawless:
Forrest survives getting his throat slit. It's retarded.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Guys, aside from Skyfall and Casino Royale, the Mission Impossible movies are better than the Bond series (specifically 1, 3 and 4).
