Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Yeah don't understand why they'd put in Insomnia instead of The Prestige tbh.

And Bane? Poor Bane. He went out like a total bitch. So badass for so long. He breaks the Bat and brings Gotham to its knees. Then after getting beat up by Batman he just gets blasted across the room and after that he's completely forgotten about.

One thing Nolan could have done better was writing out the villains.
Heath was probably scheduled for the 3rd movie and Batman already let Ra's fall to his death. Another one is overboard.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Guess people didn't listen to the Joker's speech while he's hanging if they wonder why he went out the way he did.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I saw the new Paranormal Activity tonight. I never really thought those films were good per say but they are pretty entertaining if you only watch them watch once with the presence of friends in the cinema. The new one is the exception though. The thing is, the Paranormal Activity franchise is the spotfests of movies. There's no deep storyline and it lacks any interesting characters but it's spots (or scares) make the film entertaining. None of them are going to be on my top 100 films list but it's 'turn-your-mind-off-and-it's-fun' entertainment.

They really struggling to make the film feel fresh after four films. Every sequel added something new to find creative ways to make jumpy scenes. The second had the baby and the usage of mirrors, the third had the rotating camera and this had the ...Kinect sensors? It really added nothing new. Add on top off that the cast being more irritating that usual and the franchise's charm has really worn it's welcome. If you disliked the series since the start, there's no reason to see this and it's not going to change your mind but if you enjoyed the past films, it's probably not a bad way to spend some time with mates if nothing else is on, but don't be surprise if the series' charm is gone by the end of the movie.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Only seen the first one of those films, and it wasn't very good. It did kinda creep me out in parts which hardly anything has done since I was like 13, so for that it deserves some credit but it's by no means a good movie. The found footage genre has been totally run into the ground now though. Same can be said for the majority of the horror genre and it's sub genre's.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

True. There are very few legitimately great horror films. You got stuff like The Shinning and The Devil's Rejects but the majority of stuff appeals to the lowest common denominator and features gore and other shit in exchange for an actual story and an interesting cast of characters. I'm not shitting on the horror genre too much but I don't see why it has such a huge following.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I don't agree. I mean yeah, if you think horror movies should necessary scare you, then probably yes. But i don't think you should judge a horror movie for "how scary is", the horror should be judge for how you treat themes that reflect the evil in society, specially violence, in a stetically way.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I finally saw Rocky Horror. In my defense, I saw bits and pieces on tv so I didn't think I needed to see the whole thing.

I thought it sucked. It was good watching it today, seeing all the young actors, corny stuff, ridiculous songs; but watching it then I would have asked for my money back. sorry everyone who loves it.
