Yes, I'm also excited about World War Z. For me, any kind of world apocalypse is worth watching.
(Except when it's directed by Roland Emmericht:)
That's what I thought too Looks funnier. Anyway, Zombie Rob Corddry, I'm there, without asking any questionst:
But I'm kinda glad that you seem angry, because it's the unpopular opinion thread after all
World War Z looks like a good film.
I hated Dark Knight Rises and both Iron Man movies
Star Wars has always been crap.
I didn't like Iron Man either. Haven't seen the sequel, but it probably sucks as well.
I think it's pretty cool for Brad Pitt to do a low brow kind of action flick at this point in his career, but the CGI wave of zombies is a huge turnoff. Seeing them pile up on each other trying to get up the wall...nope. I love fiction, to the point where I give Most people **** who can't let go of "facts" or reality to enjoy a film, but that just looks over the Over the top.
I know the last five words I typed don't make sense, but that's how I'm going to describe it. t: Maybe, Ridiculously over the top would have been better.
I see what you mean. I also like that Pitt is doing an action horror flick. Hopefully maybe they will work on the CGI. The trailer reminded me a bit of 28 weeks later, which I really liked, minus the cgi of course. We'll see.
Watched Looper over the weekend... I cant believe THAT is the movie the critics fell over themselves praising last year.
The first half an hour was really good, set up a pitch perfect neo-noir tone, a load of thought-provoking sci-fi ideas, and then spectacularly failed to do anything interesting with any of it...
I agree, I was really digging the first half of it, and then when the kid was introduced, the movie fell apart for me. Plus, it falls into those heavy time travel paradoxes, that when you break it down, the ending doesn't make any kind of sense. But that happens with most time travel movies.
I blame the kid, though....
I really enjoyed looper, but I think it has to do with how you felt about marketing for the movie. I found the plot with the boy a welcome surprise.
By the way, I'm not looking forward to World War Z. I heard too man bad things behind the scenes and the CGI zombies look absolutely awful. Looks worse than they did in I am Legend, and that was released years ago!
Oh God yes, Looper was an overrated mess.
I thought Hellboy 1 was much better than Hellboy 2.
^ Not unpopular, I think.
I dunno. Personally, I thought 2 was loads better than 1.
Yeah, IMO Hellboy 2 is above and beyond better than the first (which was still pretty good). 2 had more of that Del Toro aesthetic, which I love.
I mostly just remember that Perlman is an awesome Hellboy and also that I prefer the comic books.
Ummm, I haven't seen the Hellboy movies in a long time, but I remember both being quite good and on par with each other.
I've honestly have only seen the first one once and have no interest ever seeing it again.
The second I watch quite often.
The second one had the advantage of not having that kid in a lead role.
Edit: Rupert Evans' character
I think I was most disappointed by the first film's color palette and art design. It was sorely lacking compared to the comics.
I'm not sure if I enjoyed Hellboy 2 more than 1 because the visuals were simply beautiful or if I genuinely liked the film as a whole more, but whatever the reason, I liked it more.
On the topic of comic book movies, I did not enjoy Superman vs The Elite or The Dark Knight Returns 1 or 2. But I didn't like the comics they were adapted from in the first place, to be frank.
