Perfect. Another great example of a movie where there's an ordinary setting but something isn't right and you can't wait to find out what. Funny and creepy in all the right places. The ending was fantastic. Great film to know nothing about going in.
I mostly enjoyed this. Obviously Batman fighting Superman makes no sense, but they made as much sense of it as they could. The final fight at the end was extremely generic and forgetful. But Wonder Woman was great, as usual. And when I say Wonder Woman I'm obviously talking about Amy Adams.
Too good. Completely unlike any of the other X-men films. I don't care that much about the franchise, certainly I never bothered to see the other two Wolverine films but I'm glad I saw this. All very low key, no over the top set pieces like bridges being moved by the power of the mind. And the concept of Xavier having a degenerative brain disease- genius.
Sometimes I feel like films are made just for me. It's a similar setting to your standard horror film, starts with a house/cabin/asylum whatever that seems normal but you know isn't, but this isn't a horror film so doesn't degrade into your generic jump scares and everyone but one dying by the end. Instead it's about the mystery, what is the explanation behind all the odd stuff? I really enjoyed finding out.
Wanted to like it but it was just plain dumb. The first third of the film was all about saving a VIP which turned out to be a character you were already familiar with that you didn't even realise needed saving (oh btw spoilers). What was the point of that then? Then it degraded into generic bad guy with columns of light shooting into the sky (only LOTR is allowed to do that).
Do not understand the hate at all. I enjoyed the entire thing, was never boring, and made me really happy to not have been born 2000 years ago. I passionately disagree with those who said 'it didn't need a remake'. Of course it didn't so what?
Really solid. You knew what was going to happen but you didn't know how or when and it was really fun to wait and find out. Great tension throughout. It's a shame because Mark Wahlberg is a complete dick so I do not want to enjoy his films (then why do I go then? No idea).
I really wanted to love it, but it just came up short. There were some really dumb parts, specifically the character of Alfred, who should clearly have been cut. And the battle scenes didn't feel as cool as the Two Towers or Return of the King. I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm just older, maybe I've become desensitized to them, but whatever the reason, this film is certainly one companion short of a Fellowship.
I found this similar to Inception. Great ideas and some great visuals, the problem is that I'm not convinced the story actually makes sense. After a while you just have to stop thinking and run with it. I did enjoy the presence of Jessica Chastain, who is becoming an increasingly strong contender to join the Holy Trinity of Gingers (currently consisting of Amy Adams, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Isla Fisher). I wouldn't want to be the guy who decides which one she'd replace.
I did not really care for this. There were some good jokes, but I found it full of stupid bits that made no sense, that were included just for a gag. I'd expect that from a Family Guy episode or maybe a parody film like Airplane, but here it just seemed unnatural.
