Mowgli is human, so I guess that kinda counts for The Jungle Book?

Speaking of modern Disney remakes; I'm glad they made a good entertaining movie in the remake of Pete's Dragon. I watched the original not too long after watching the remake, and crikey is it the cringey kind of goofy, and a boring movie.

Assassin's Creed is a watchable movie, I won't give it a better rating right now, I didn't look at it as a hard to watch movie.

If the best thing you can say about a movie is that it's watchable, I think that's pretty darn bad

I don't care very much for Goonies, Hook, Big Trouble in Little China and most of John Hughes films.

So you don't like most of the iconic films of the 80s

I wish that, whenever a film gets a really bad RT score, the marketing team would just roll with it and sift through all the bad reviews and include any semi-positive comment that critics make about it in the TV spots.

This week, go see the movie that the Los Angeles Times calls "almost competently made" that features "at least one good performance"!

Catch the movie that Variety says is "tolerable after a few drinks and a Valium"!

Don't miss the film that the Chicago Tribune says "is not a complete disaster" that "at least has an impressive opening credits sequence before everything else goes to sh**"!

I loved Robocop 2 and 3 a lot more than 1 when I was a kid. But now I just can't stand them. There's only one Robo movie for me.

I enjoy all of them.

The closest modern director to Paul Verhoeven is Zack Snyder.

Not sure about that, but I enjoy both directors' work.

I have never liked Robocop 2. I don't like the tone and musics are not as good. Something about it is just off-putting. I haven't seen it in a long time so my opinion could change. I like Robocop 1 and 3.

I wouldn't go as far as to say I dislike like the Goonies. In fact I loved it a lot as a kid. But yeah...I recently watched it for the first time in a quite a while and it definitely struggled to hold my attention.

If we're talking Showgirls Paul Verhoeven, then I agree completely.

Never watched.
Only talking about flicks like RoboCop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers.

Snyder tries to be subtle, tries to be subversive, tries to be satirical - and mostly fails. Unlike Verhoeven (if we talk about his better half of filmography). Verhoeven isn't pretentious, nor is fascinated by slow motion, moments or pretty static shots.

Yes, they both love violence and nudity (I love it too), but Verhoeven is more tasteful. His violence, as well as sexuality and nudity, is entertaining.

Snyder would be the one director I know who crams whatever he can to be subtle, but it's almost always obvious he's noncommittal with the scene in front of him in a way that's somehow both jeering and endearing.
He's over-the-top and yet he's also making a statement/stance that your secondary senses should be able to pick up on.

That last bit is the magic of Verhoeven that so few action directors are known for, especially in current Hollywood. Joseph Kahn with his Power/Rangers parody would be another, albeit more overt example of that.

Silence was by far the best film of 2016.
