ya i know, but sometimes those simple details in the premise just make me smh and ruin the exp for me
i did get emotional on that call to his dad like most
hated the ending
hated the lady and that MI5 guy who had a walking stick for no reason
hated that Jake opted for suicide like a b1aaaatch
most of all i hate that michelle monaghan actress, something about her just makes me want to rough her up then rape her
I agree with all your points except the suicide part. Those ****ers kept him alive by machines he was supposed to be dead but they sustained him in that ****ed up state.
So many hollywood cliches in one film should not be allowed, especially for a comic book film. How many times does a character look up to the sky and let out a bellowing scream? I counted atleast three.
Not to mention the butchering of certain characters and the storyline being wrong.
But maybe that's just the comic book nerd in me talking.
On the other hand, I thought Thor and Cap. America were incredible. Also, the first two X-Men films were brilliant. So, I'm not complaining for the sake of it when it comes to Origins...it just sucks.
The first two X-Men movies are X-Men 1, and X-Men 2.
Adrien Brody comes to, all f*cked up with his legs pinned in a wrecked car at the bottom of a hill in the forest. There's a dead guy in the back seat, and another dead guy outside about 15 yards away. No food, no idea where he is, no recollection of who he is. Slim odds of survival.
Similar to flicks like 127 Hours, Frozen, Buried, etc., though not as compelling. Brody's acting is good, but otherwise this is fairly forgettable. If you really like survival type flicks you might like it.
Alright my bro's back at school so now I have days to myself so I'll prob be watchin a lot of stuff.
Today a couple of Independent comedies:
The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Chthulu: 4/10- So this was a weird ass movie. I understand what they were trying to do, and it worked in a couple spots but... overall it was just flat. And their budget made it look a little bit like Power Rangers at times which is weird because the gore effects were actually pretty good. And the acting was so bad at times, but I can't even tell if it was on purpose for laughs or not, that's how bad. I wouldn't recommend unless you have time and nothing better to do.
Calvin Marshall: 5/10- A likeable underdog working against odds to succeed in sports and in doing so in life. Sound familiar? Done a million times before and usually, better. Don't get me wrong this one has a little more heart than others and a not so cheesy ending but there are oddities that are never explained that take me out of the film. The whole pacing of the film bugged me for some reason up until the end.
Saw the 2nd Planet of the Apes (2001) w/Mark Wahlberg. Thought it was all right. Wasn't amazing but wasn't bad either. Its a worth it good one time watch. Story is pretty good, acting is great. I wouldn't give it more than a
