Oddly enough, I preferred Godfather III over the Vito parts in Godfather II, lol.

Also, Avatar, Prometheus and Knocked Up suck.

Justice League: Doom is the most disappointing of the DC animation DTVs.

There's probably more but I can't of them right now, lol.
I like all of them except for Miami Vice. I love Miami Vice.


Spider-man 3 has parts I love and parts I hate.

All in all, a lot of thought and care obviously went into the movie. Probably even moreso than the original screenplay warranted. And that kind of thing really shines through - even when people don't consciously realize it - that's what has made it so popular, I think.
I didn't see the friendship aspect coming into play in the previews. That was a pleasant surprise.

I wanted to like Due Date. There were a few parts I thought were funny , but I felt letdown. I thought John Candy was brilliant in Planes, Trains ,& Automobiles. That film is underrated.

Aye, SM3 is flawed, I admit, but the good stuff trumps the flaws IMO.

And while we're on the subject of Spidey, and I know this may be considered blasphemy by some people, but looking back, I don't think The Amazing Spider-Man is all that great.

The more time passes, the more I dislike TASM.

Spider-Man 3 is one of those flawed movies that's definitely mediocre, but not vehemently bad.

I always thought that if you were going to Vito's backstory, it should have been done in it's own movie and not detract from Michael's story.

It was in the movie not only to show the similarities of why both got into the underground world (for Vito it was to make a living for his family and also to stop Fanucci and Michael it was to save his family), but also to emphasize the difference of the paths both of them took and the changing of times, in which the latter was emphasized with Frank Pentangeli and Hyman Roth. While Vito became a fair, loyal family man as Don, Michael became a jaded, ruthless Don who was abusive to his family, both mentally and physically, which came to a head when he had Fredo killed.

I agree but I thought Garfield was really good in it and I'm looking forward to the next installment hopefully with a better story and a better villain a la TDK (one can always dream)

P, T, and A is well liked , but it seems forgotten these days.


I really like ASM because of the cast. Not so much the story. I hope it gets better , but I'm waiting to see what happens with Green Goblin.

I didn't find Skyfall and the last Batman all that great. One was not what I expect from a Bond film ( it was too personnal for my taste, the relationship with M, Bond familly etc ) and the latter was just a step down from the previous movie ( the pacing, a scoobidoo twist with Taila and a senior Batman ).

Just like before Skyfall was released, I'm not all that excited for the new Star Trek. Out of the three new big trailers, I'm looking forward to Pacific Rim and Man of Steel more.

While I do think Garfield did a good job with what he was given, I didn't like the way that Peter/Spidey was written. He seemed like too much of a punk and not like...well, Peter Parker lol

Beast of the Southern Wild was overly melodramatic. Hushpuppy was whiny and she never really grew at the end. I felt more for her father. It has something to say, but its execution was heavy-handed. I love the setting and score. But the shaky cam... ugh.

I couldn't disagree more about Skyfall. It had everything you expect in a Bond movie and more. The One liners were back, the humor, exotic locales, women, and Craig's Bond going back to being like Connery's Bond in the end.

All of the best Bond movies involved him getting personal. In Goldfinger, it was Jill Masterson's death after he irresponsibly dealed with GF. In The Spy Who Loved Me, it was his relationship with Anya, which got even more personal after she finds out he killed her lover. In Goldeneye, it was his relationship with 006 and his betrayal that set him off. He could have brought him back to England and had him arrested, but he was too hurt hence, the the "For me, line". And we all know about Casino Royale.

I'm mixed about How Parker was written in ASM. On one hand, he was a straight up dick. On another hand, he was written like a teenager in the 00s. Overly emotion, always having the best of intentions but not necessarily dealing with his emotions and intentions in the best of ways, which continues on to the end with Gwen. Come to think about it, I'm liking how they dealt with Parker's personality. He's very reckless and the death of Gwen is that event that will set him straight.

It just has so many little details that show through multiple viewings.

I agree, I loved that it explored his relationship with M and went into his character more. The whole movie was a great mesh of the newer and older generations of Bond.

I don't think that's an unpopular opinion. The majority of people have nothing but undying love for TDKR. Personally I watched it once and that was more than enough, I have no desire to ever suffer through it again. I'm sure the clumsy script, horrible characterization and glaring plot holes would shine through even more on repeat viewings ...now that's an unpopular opinion!

I feel the exact same way. And I loved TDK, I've watched it like 10 times already. But I have no desire to see TDKR again.

I haven't been able to watch The Dark Knight Rises ever again either!

Also, I'm not sure how much I could care less about Pacific Rim.

Oops, I do love The Dark Knight Rises, my unpopular opinion is that I hate The Dark Knight.

That's an opinion I share. I couldn't get more than 20 minutes into TDKR when I rented it to watch through again. Sure, Bane is rad, but the rest of the movie works really hard at making you hate it.
