World War Z - 3/5 - Was a cool premise but just missing something. The zombies were awesome. I love crazy running zombies who can take down a helicopter

 

Two Guns - 4/5 - I thought it was a good movie and the acting from Denzel and Marky Mark was really good. Nice twist as well.

As for Tim Burton, I liked The Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and Frankenweenie out of his post Big Fish films.

VHS - 2.5/5 Not sure why people enjoyed this movie so much. While it has good special effects and some of the scenes are pretty good, it is disjointed and nothing fits together to a cohesive whole.

I wouldn't say it was amazing, but I thought more of the shorts were good than bad. There was only 1 I didn't really like.

Ok. I feel stupid. I didn't realize it was supposed to be an anthology of stories. I missed the beginning of it and had trouble hearing some of the dialogue.

I like Tim Burton, Alice was alright I liked Sweeney Todd and Frankenweenie.. Dark Shadows was pretty poor - it's funny because me and a few friends helped on the film was a little while we all went to see it together we kinda just looked at each other when it ended

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Alice in Wonderland is abysmal. Burton should avoid any remakes/"reimaginings" for the rest of his career.

Cept for the Alice sequel I guess. Can't believe it made so much money.

Agree 100%, he needs to stick with his own original ideas because he fucks up anything that already has source material.

I haven't watched too many movies this year, but I just finished watching the new Star Trek.

 

As a non-Trekkie, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I liked the first one, and I was concerned that some folks said this one was all action and explosions.

 

There certainly were explosions, but there was good drama along the way. I thought the whole "Kirk = guts; Spock = logic" theme was too obvious from the get go, but it still worked.

 

On a scale measuring overall merit, I'd rate it a 7.5/10, but I had 9/10 worth of fun on my first watching.

Alice in Wonderland was amazing.

 

I loved how every other scene reminded me the movie was made for 3D.

 

Didn't look stupid to me at all seeing it in 2D.

I re-watched Star Trek Into Darkness the other day too.  Still loved it, decent drama, great action and awesome in 3D.

My biggest problem with the new Star Trek is the climax and resolution basically makes it a remake. I don't understand the need to go there whatsoever.

I wouldn't go as far as to call it a remake.

 

Reimagining maybe, but it's still a very different movie from Star Trek II

Yes but the two biggest elements of the plot are straight remade, albeit with the characters flipped.

I didn't have a huge problem with them using him as the villain, and Cumberbatch is a great actor, but there wasn't any need to go there at all. Especially when the characters don't share the sane bond as in the older film. There were plenty other ways the movie could have gone.

There have been a few what are you playing threads in the general gaming area, but they haven't tended to get a lot of sustained activity. That forum area is pretty slow anyway outside of the GGT thread and a couple other threads like it.

I didn't really mind the remake nature of the movie. I was never a big fan of the original Star Trek movies or show so it's been ages since I've seen them. And the second is the only one remember really liking.

In any case, with this series being set up as a slightly alternate reality (same crew came together etc.). slightly different events happening makes sense as the reality wasn't shifted that much by the events if the first one.

When the movie was first released, several fans noted that while the character was called Hal Jordan, he was written more like Kyle Rayner.

 

I didn't get that feeling from Kyle from the stories I've read with him (the one year period following Reign of the Superman). I thought Kyle was trying to get his life together, especially since the passing of his girlfriend. If the comic writers made him more pompous, then that sucks. 

 

And count me in as another who liked Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland. I thought Depp was good and didn't overshadow the other actors (as opposed to what I heard regarding The Lone Ranger).  

 

Didn't like Sweeney Todd, but I wouldn't mind seeing Dark Shadows.

I understand but I still don't see the need to do it. I'm actually most excited for the third movie, I hope more of it is like the first 6 minutes or so of Into Darkness, seeing new alien species was cool. There's lots of new things they can present, even the redesigned Klingons were pretty awesome.

Prisoners - Very good, though a bit long.  A very real and raw look at on child abductions, all the actors were fantastic.

Iron Man 3 - 4.5/5 - Still a great movie. Expertly written and acted. Great soundtrack and lighting, as well.

 

The Innkeepers - 4/5 - I don't watch many horror movies so when someone tells me to watch one, I rarely listen to them, but I gave The Innkeepers a shot. Pretty damn good. It doesn't fall for many cliches and motifs that many haunted house style movies tend to fall for. I also really liked the soundtrack. Really well done film.
