M:I 2....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I haven't seen CIVIL WARRRR, BVS:DOJ, or SUICIDE SQUAD, but I'm 100% certain that I'd have more fun with M:I2 than any of them.

For your sake Angentsands, I hope they end up making a sequel to M:I2.

I was trying to find that image - YOU KNOW THE ONE - of Stamp and Ambrose but 'twas nowhere to be found.

Salo!

 

But really, for me, that happened when I did a blind buy of Boondock Saints. Urgh.

 

The road to recovery was a long and arduous one.

 

I still regret selling that DVD instead of burning it into a warped plastic donut. Maybe I should go find it in a dollar bin somewhere and then burn it.

I'll probably see this.

Ohhh.

Is there fart humor in the movie?
post #2618 of 2785
Seems to me that we've reached the point where the people now writing negative reviews are just trying to out negative what was written yesterday and the day before. They are so over the top.

I think many film critics are fed up with watching superhero flicks and this film is functioning like a magnet for all their negative feelings.

post #2623 of 2785
Their job is all about them expressing and contextualizing their own subjective emotions.

If I saw this thing, I'd probably be blasting hyperbole, too.

You would think they'd be as vicious with MCU flicks.

I think we're going to see more of that going forward.

That one review about wondering whether he'll ever be happy again was wonderful, though. I may have to start following that guy.

I liked it a lot. It's really wobbly and broad, and it asks you to go along with whatever without explanation, but it's has so much more spirit that BvS, or even ANTMAN. I'd probably go again if I got a chance with friends.
post #2627 of 2785
Well...yeah.

But dislike can be expressed without acting like you've just been waterboarded for two and a half hours.

Not that all of them do THAT but...the one's that do? Ugh, just shut your face already..

These people are writers, y'know, and writing is an art form unto itself. Sometimes critics write things just to entertain themselves. When you've seen the umpteenth movie that you hated in a given year and have to write about it, just saying "It isn't good" can be pretty boring.

In other words, don't take that stuff too seriously.

Well...when you put it THAT way..
post #2634 of 2785
I like Calum. I think that piece is hilarious, and meant to be.

He hated the film enough to try and make up for it by finding some fun in hammering a stake of venomous hyperbole through its heart.

I dunno, that's a pretty accurate summary of my experience with, say, Transformers 2.

I like how you guys are all downplaying the negative reviews of the movie you haven't even watched yet. Youre all as biased as you claim me to be it's adorable.

I'll....actually stand up for this.

That movie is DAYS long. And it IS that much worse than the others...not that I'm recommending them to normies or anything..
post #2638 of 2785
Sorry folks, but the critics have been absolutely spot-on with this one. It's a real stinker. I mean awful. Head over to the post-release thread if you want a bit more detail. I actually feel sorry for those who haven't seen it yet because it means they still have to sit through it.

Ugh.

I have.

..I BOUGHT it..

I DISAGREE!

No but seriously...AoE is 20 minutes longer and it felt an hour shorter to me. RotF was INTERMINABLE on the other hand. I've never seen a movie (other than M:I 2) with literally just an HOUR of dead nothing right smack in the middle of it like that..

I read a bit about this. I think it goes back to my point to some extent--the people putting together the trailers had a grasp on the ingredients of this film and how to put them together that none of the people actually putting the film together did.

I'm only downplaying the ones that are super over the top negative. same way I discount the super over the top positive/negative Marvel reviews, Ghostbusters reviews, etc...

At least until I see it for myself that is.

Maybe that over the top feeling is what the movie made them feel, and the text is an accurate reflection of over the moon/disappointed feelings?  I just think it's so goofy to assume somebody is trying to one up a trend or something, especially from the perspective of "one person has context, one does not."

 

Reviewing the review.  

post #2646 of 2785

Telltale's BATMAN Episode 1 pretty much blows away every DC movie of the last eleven years. Great action, great attention to detail and great characterization while doing an original story. It's fantastic.  

post #2647 of 2785

Downloading right now!  Then Suicide Squad later tonight.  It's DC day and I can't lose!

post #2648 of 2785

No Freebird that's Marvel!

You just apply methods that work in a 2-and-a-half-minute trailer to an entire movie and expect the same results.

 

Begs the question why David Ayer didn't "get" his own script.

 

Was the tone of the trailers just a happy accident which which made the studio ditch whatever Ayer had aimed for in the first place when he was shooting the movie?

 

Did the same company edit the Comic-con tease and the leter rock music-filled trailers and TV-spots?

 

They were pretty different in tone; maybe the shift came a lot later than we thought.

 

Odd, because Guardians of the Galaxy came out the same year they announced this film.

 

You'd think replicating that tone would have been their aim from the outset.

post #2650 of 2785
I just realized who Harley Quinn reminds me of in this....at least having only seen trailers.

...Anna Nicole Smith

I'm probably the only one who sees that..
