^It's mind-boggling that it came out 14 years ago. Remember seeing the trailers for it like it's yesterday.
Lol that's what I said. I remember when it dropped and my uncle took my family to see it cuz I was livin in San Antonio as a 6th grader. I didn't go though bcuz it was a series clinching game in the Stanley Cup Finals between New Jersey Devils and the Dallas Stars.
I was pumpin the elapsed time factor to my friends when we were watching. Bein all hyperbolic and shit like, " This joint is almost 20 years old soon."
Lol they were prolly thinkin, not quite son, slow your roll.
Finally a Marvel movie that's not filled with corny ass jokes. This movie surpasses anything Marvel has done so far, easily. Felt like I was watching a Bourne flick a couple of times. Top 3 superhero movie for me.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - 8.5/10
So glad I finally watched this. Soo good. Brad Pitt is frightening as Jesse James and absolutely owned this role (the scene where he holds the knife to Casey Affleck's neck - damn). Casey Affleck was also damn good.

We watched it on a school trip back in 01. Couldn't sleep after seeing the train death. Like legit stayed up all night like a bitch thinking of all the ways death could get me. We were at a cabin so I figured some wood would decapitate me.
It was the shit back then. The last one was just terrible acting. The story behind it is just wicked cool man.
The "I think he's kinda hot" line in Man of Steel was so ****ing bad.
I'd probably give the a 5/10. It just never really gives that emotional release that we have come to expect from an action movie. For example, Iron Man sacrificing himself at the end of Avengers was obvious and cliche but it was emotionally satisfying. Cliches exist in actions movies for a reason. Superman had cool action scenes and a decent plot but the movie felt like it moved too quickly and there was never really any real emotion in it for me. The only part that I thought was really good was the ending. Ballsy to have Superman kill the villain in the first installment of a series.

Havent watched it in a few years, watched it again today. Excellent movie. Will watch TDK soon since I havent seen it since it came out. I was like 8 at the time though so I dont remember much about it. I remember they got a new actress for Rachel, even though Katie Holmes is so much hotter than Maggie Gyllenhaal.
