The essence of the original series was ruined. Part of what made the originals scary were that Michael never talked, nor did you really know why he was doing what he was doing. You never saw his face, either.
That adds an insurmountable amount of suspense and basically what made the original terrifying. Now, in the new one, you know exactly why he's killing everyone, you've seen his face several times, and he started to grunt, make sounds and started generally talking.
That's not scary. You took it from a suspenseful, ominous, scary movie to a piece of shit torture porn film. And how does Rob Zombie not know this?
He Got Game 8/10. Probably the best basketball movie every made. Denzel's acting really is spectacular. The story is original, and it captures the manipulation and pressure going on in the life of a future basetkball star. You get to see the kind of people that come at you when money and fame is involved.
watchin it tonight! Recorded it on my DVR when it was on 2 days ago on FX.
Got this on PPV las night cuz I LOVE Greek mythology. I hear it wasn't very faithful to the book but numerous parts were very entertaining. I HATED that corny black side-kick Grover. He hurt tha film. Overall, I liked it and it had my attention throughout.
Shes out of my league -> loved it. Very enjoyable and funny. 7/10
Youth in revolt -> enjoyable but forgettable. Cera played the same character that he plays in all his movies.. it is getting boring. 6 / 10
I am the other way around on the comedies. I thought She's Out Of My League was a laugh-less embarassing piece of shit. I honestly can't believe it even had a theatrical release. Worn out shock-humor jokes and pre-teen writing.
Youth in Revolt was surprisingly not bad (R rating always helps). I'm the same as you, I'm a little tired of Michael Cera as a leading man but I thought he was solid. Not a ton of laughs but the script was good and I was entertained throughout.
