Wondering if Kong;Skull Island is worth watching, and also King Arthur.......

Wish there was a 7.5 and above imdb ratings movie I can find ....


Ghost in a Shell, I give it 5.7/10 and that is being a bit generous because i like the modern visuals

I'll give the batman series 7.2/10 and the Xmen series 6.9/10

Interstellar gets 7.8/10

Casino and goodfellas gets 7/10

scarface gets 4/10 (i really don't see what the hype is all about) it's just a crappy production of a normal crime movie

I can't think of a movie that i'd rate over 8/10 right now....

oh lord of the rings i'll give it 8/10, very well done for a medieval fantasy type movie.....

I liked King Arthur but I'm a huge Guy Ritchie fan and pretty easy to please movie wise. Not his best work but a solid effort.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)



Kinda torn.
Pros : Good atmosphere. Pretty dark aesthetics. Not hollow characters. Great SFX. Good main story idea. Interesting ending ( won't say more, spoiler alert ). Ensemble cast with good performances ( Jeremy Irons playing batman's butler, Fishburne playing the daily planer chief, Kostner appearing for 3 minutes, no wonder budget got up to 300M, lolwhat!).
Cons : Too long for its story ( watched the ultimate edition, 30 extra minutes bringing it to 3 hours, standard version already 153 minutes ). Main story/premise was good, but it kept getting... disoriented, many unnecessary plot twists and complications happening. Yet another batman character reboot, although this time it feels somewhat connected to Nolan's.
My verdict : Ok and maybe good for the batman/superman mythology fans, ok for a 3 hour action brainstorm, rather boring for someone who wants more.
My rating : 6/10

ya I liked most of it, was surprised it got so much hate.. it lost me at the end with the enormous monster and the wonderwomen stuff out of basically nowhere. I liked pretty much everything up until that finale, just too over the top. Wish they would have stayed away from that.. Literally felt like it turned into a kids movie out of nowhere.



This superman with Lex Luthor was really good:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078346/

Gene Hackman kills it.. and the plot doesn't go crazy with massive CGI monsters etc.

Need to watch that again, but from what I recall, that movie was really good.

dunkirk trailer looks pretty intense/legit.

on a side note: not sure if anyone will be able to make movies about WWIII. would be nice if everyone just suddenly realized how stupid we are, out of nowhere.. kind of like "The Leftovers" but for a massive, deep introspection event.

I told you man, my ratings are very very tough. The departed was good, hence 6.5. I gave fast and furuous a 3.3 and Scarface (a movie considered immaculate by some people) 4/10 lol.

lol@ the big monster in Bat vs Superman..... the movie was a bit of a tragedy.... it didn't have an identity if it wanted to go the real life route more like Chris Nolan's batman or more comic like say for instance Sin City which was pretty nice the original one, i give 6.8/10

bat vs super = 5/10

Tom Cruise Oblivion = 6/10, i like sci fi movies, it was not great but the twist was alright.....

Elisium = 5.8/10, decent visuals, was like poor man's version of district 9

District 9 = 6.2/10 was creative

Watchmen = 6.5/10 was also pretty cool movie imo

Avatar = 7/10 i like it good visuals plus a not so bad plot. I'd give it more if the fight between high tech weapons put up a better fight against jungle spears though.

Ant-Man (2015)



Not bad at all.
It is "honey i shrunk the kids" with 2015 FX and adult humor. Liked the humor, it is always present.
Liked Paul Rudd. Michael Douglas is boss, i like him a lot always. Evangeline Lilly is hot in this movie, has a genuine sex appeal, although she doesn't provoke at all.
Story was fine but a little too cliched, you could see where it is heading at from the very beginning and it didn't deviate at all from that, but it served it pretty well. Some action sequences were very entertaining and original.
7/10.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)



Yes, it is super-hero-movies-catchup week.
This one is beast. It is not a captain america movie actually, it is more like Avengers 3.
Awesome visuals. Good plot, deviates from the typical superhero plot. Some good character development. Even some philosophical questioning. If something is bugging, it is the fact that Marvel decided to have her heroes fight each other at the same time that DC did the same. Look a few posts above, even the movie posters are the same. Marvel does it with much more grace/style/reasoning though.
Solid 8 , want to give more but 8.5 feels too much. Ok, 8.25. Really good movie!
