I think that's the worst thing about owning an XBOX ONE- never got to play The Last of Us.
it really is. guy who works next to me almost bought a PS4 just to play that game after I kept harping on it over and over. Only 1 of 3 games I've ever played all the way through 3 times.
I've thought of renting one for a month at Rent A Center just to play it.
Sony should release it on XBOX ONE now that this much time has passed. Won't hurt their console sales. If anything, it might entice XBOX owners to convert to a PS the next time around so they can play The Last of Us 2.
LOL, I've been a Sony guy since 1997, and have had a PS4 since 2014. And not for one second have I ever considered playing that game. Absolutely no thank you.
Black Panther - 9 out of 10. Good action. It is in my top 5 Marvel movies.
Coco - 8 out of 10. I don't usually watch animated movies, but I must say CoCo was really good.
Annihilation - 2 out of 10. It bored the hell out of me. The ending was predictable. I don't understand why it has so many good reviews.
The Outsider - 5 out of 10. Jared Leto is a Japanese Yakuza. It was a decent movie. I expected more action, not a love story.
Dunkirk - 6 out of 10. It was okay. I wouldn't put it anywhere near the top 15 of my favorite war movies.
I have 6 and 4 year old girls, and watch a TON of animated family movies, but we haven't seen Coco yet. The trailers just didn't do anything for me. I'm sure we'll see it eventually.
Oh, how do I forget to mention
Roman J. Israel Esq - 0 out of 10. I cannot believe Denzel Washington put this trash out. This may be the only Denzel movie I have ever hated. BORING AS HELL.
The most recent Denzel movie that I've seen was unstoppable, about the run away train. The movie was nonsense, but the acting by him, Chris Pine and the criminally underrated Rosario Dawson was all good. The funniest thing about the movie was that the train was headed for a fictional "small city" in Pennsylvania that had a population about three times as big as Pittsburgh, lol. They filmed a lot of the train scenes around my hometown.
My son liked it. I was skeptical, but it turned out to be pretty good.
My kids are huge fans of The Book of Life, which also centers around the day of the dead. However, its a silly musical comedy, which is their style.
Saw it. I would give it a 4 or 5 out of 10. It was atleast watchable. I love action.
This new movie is unwatchable for me. My wife and i both fell asleep trying to watch it, lol. It was that bad.
We'll have to check it out. Thanks
Something tells me Unlucky still sleeps with a nightlight on......... a cute one that shines the Bat Signal onto his wall.
Took my 5 year old to see it. Trailer didn't do much for me either. I was really surprised. Fantastic movie imo.
I watched Coco with my kids on Saturday, and didn't think much of it at all. Slow and lame. As I said before, I watch a lot of animated family movies, and this was well below average. I don't know that we'll ever watch it again.
I finally got to see the Assassins Creed movie last night, and it was ok. B-/C+ effort. As someone who's played all of the video games, I appreciated how they tried to stay true to the general idea, rather than massively change things up. However, it felt a lot more like a long premier for a TV series than a feature film, and it ended that way too. Extremely serious the whole way through the movie, no levity at all.
In a way.....it is about zombies kinda
The last carton I watched - Coco. And tell you honestly, I expected much more.
And the last movie I saw was The Commute with Liam Neeson
I watched Justice League, and it was ok. DC is trying.
Wonder Woman and The Flash were the best parts of the movie. The rest was a lot of meh. The villain was especially flat and over the top. Adding humanity to Batman and Superman seems really forced though. But it kept my interest the whole way though, which is a lot more than I can say for Batman vs Superman.
Also the casting of Joe Morton as Cyborg's dad could in no way be an accident. As soon as I saw him, I thought of him as the scientist from Terminator 2.
Really? I thought Coco was a solid A+ for me. The animations were astounding, the storyline was touching and the cultural references were great.
definitely agree that wonder woman and Flash were the highlights of Justice League. Steppenwolf was definitely nothing special. I really hope they step up their game when Darkseid appears. I can get behind that Justice league was more like a 2nd intro movie in a row, but that means they need to do better in the next one. Overall, I did enjoy the movie.
it is interesting - the origin of Steppenwolf. came from Jack Kirby when he left Marvel. semi-roots in the Thor universe
Justice League is very forgettable. Sometimes I forget that I actually watched it.
Same here. It was like it was slapped together for the sole purpose of soliciting introducing us to Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg, with little desire for actual content value. I would've preferred individual films on the trio first, providing us a backstory and some character development before throwing them into a film together.
There are a lot of pretty good assembly movies where multiple characters are set up during the movie and the movie rocks. The "Avengers" method is rare and only has really worked once in the modern era. Yes, I do think it would have been better if Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg got good movies beforehand and then came together for Justice League. I just do not think it was necessary.
IMO, the problem is multiple fold. I think the main problem though is Joss Whedon came in and made his movie over the top of Zach Synder's move. While I dislike Zach's version of DC Comics, especially Man of Steel, his movies do have a memorable quality. The Jossification of Zach's vision created such a bland movie of just stuff happening with little to no stakes or character development or character.
Basically the story I heard was they did not want to delay the movie because the executives wanted to protect their bonuses, which caused the movie to be rushed.
I read that Zach Snyder had finished filming and was in the process of editing when one of his kids committed suicide, and he then stepped away. Weadon came in, cut a lot out, and changed the idea of what the movie was supposed to be, as you said.
I like Weadon a lot typically, but that's when he does his own deal from start to finish. Having two guys each put their own spin on the same movie isn't going to end with something great 99% of the time.
yeah, those are two very different types of directors. I wasn't aware Whedon has left Marvel.
Age of Ultron burned him out.
Surprisingly Marvel learned the right lessons with Age of Ultron.
Its sounds like the door is still open if he wants to do more with the MCU. Taking over Justice League is pretty much the only thing that he's done outside of Marvel in the last six years, and he's been involved with them on one level or another 2005.
What I would really like to see him do is a live action version of Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which he wrote for Disney in 2001. With today's tech, they could really do it justice, and it could be made live action/CGI with virtually no changes to the script and be a huge blockbuster, IMO. Its a really underrated animated movie.
Saw Netflix's film The Titan.
Awful. It had a semi-interesting premise, but god Sam Worthington has just no range. And about halfway through, the film went off the rails, it just made absolutely no sense and the ending was bizarre. I've enjoyed some of the Netflix offerings, both Bright and What Happened to Monday were fun if unspectacular, but this one is one to skip.
Also makes me worried about any future Avatar movies. Worthington was a weak link in that, and he hasn't gotten better.
Why a live action? I just don't see the point, though I fully admit it's personal preference I suppose. I have not been a fan of the live action remakes - Beauty and the Beast was imo mediocre. Not bad, but not really worth doing. Disney will pump them out as long as they make money though.
Just because I think that it could be even cooler. Some movies are best as animation, others can go either way, and I think that its one that could.
I have 6 & 4 year old girls, and let me tell you that I am in no way looking forward to a lifetime of princess movie remakes! But others could be interesting, if done the right way.
I suppose. Just not my jam. I wouldn't, however, mind further exploration of some of these worlds in live action. But straight up remakes pick at me for some reason. . I only have a 2y/o son. He's getting a nice dose of Star Wars.
Sadly, my girls aren't into the Star Wars movies yet. They do like the Lego video games though.
I'm going to see Rampage some time next week, I will give you guys my opinion on it.
A Quiet Place. Such a well acted and tense movie. And it didn't overstay its welcome.
I just saw Arrival.
The movie is as amazing as I heard. I was floored by how well it was acted and directed. How the action was a minimum but the intensity was a maximum. I am disappointed in myself for not seeing it sooner.
Great movie. I keep going back on forth on whether I should get i on UHD. It's not the type of movie I usually buy but I would definitely watch it repeat times.
I was spoiled on the movie and it was so good that it did not matter. I would have been blown away if I watched it without knowing anything about it and would have to watch it a second time.
Ready Player One was pretty good, but it was completely different than the book. Watch the movie first, and you will like it more. It isn't that the movie sucks if you read the book, they are just so different. It's distracting.
I just watched Black Panther two days ago. I'm a huge lover of Marvel and DC films.
This was hands down THEE worst Marvel film I've ever seen. And I've seen Howard the Duck! lol
It was corny and cheesy. Bad acting and horrible writing. Boring and coma inducing. Now, maybe I'm basing it off of it's high reviews, and it didn't live up to my expectations, but man, what a waste of my time and money.
