    This is my opinion, this is my unpopular opinion, and I have reasons to hate his work

    If I may ask, what are these reasons? You say he sucks at telling stories, what about his stories do you feel he fails to tell well?

    I don't use the term torture porn because I think it's beyond stupid. Too many people use it for just about any horror film with violence(which all rated R horror films have)now days.

    With that being said, I do agree with you georgec, that Martyrs is a **** film. Violence like that doesn't gross me out, it was just a lame film. So this woman and her cult are torturing people to the point of death just to see if there eyes look up and to the right...which means they are staring at the tunnel of light to heaven. :doh::doh:

    Also, at the end of the film, they put up a definition of the word Martyr, the french must have a different definition of it, because what it said on the screen from what I remember, was Not what a martyr, is or means.

    When you're reasons seem to be nothing but 'it sucks, and I don't like it', especially when discussing one of the modern masters of the craft, then yeah. People seem to forget it's a two way street: you're as free to post your opinion as people are to criticize said opinion.

    Yes, nobody explained that in the movie and in the end no one gave crap about what they were. They just came from nowhere to make the end of the movie possible.

    Don't be hating on Spielberg. :o

    As for that Aziz stuff, I hated 2001 but the visuals are still great today.

    Man of Steel has the best score of any superhero movie, ever.

    I dig Zimmer's MOS, but it's not even close for best Superhero score.

    First Class and Spider-Man 2 are the best CBM scores imo

    John Williams' Superman and Danny Elfman's Batman Returns are my top two.

    Elfman's Hulk score is a masterpiece too.

    I move that Ang Lee pushed him out of his comfort zone. I love Elfman, but when it's about comic book movies he was becoming way too predictable. Hulk's score probably showed a new Elfman to Elfman.

    Imo, Spider-Man 3 is the best. Then Elfman's Hulk.

    James Newton Howard's Unbreakable is amazing, as is the movie.

    Shirley Walker's Mask of the Phantasm is still the best Batman score ever done.

    Absolutely, especially his Sandman theme. "Birth of Sandman" is one of, if not the most beautiful cues written for a superhero movie.

    I don't know if it counts as super hero movie but Zimmer's score for The Lone Ranger is also pretty awesome.

    To me, they sounded more like "ooooh, children, there they come... the baddies!!!"

    Michael B Jordan will make a good Johnny Storm.

    He's got the acting chops and charisma for the jokey likable jerk personality of Johnny and is a good choice for the characters 'character'.

    From Stanley i have only watched The Shinning and 2001, the first i watched with a friend, and we were expecting something scary, but were also talking all the time, so that was probably not the best way to watch it. 2001: A Space Odissey is a masterpiece, one of my favorite films of all time, before it i has also seen its imitator The Tree of Life and i hated that one.

    As far as unpopular opinions, this one is popular with the crowd but not so much with fans here: Michael Bay's Transformers movies are very entertaining (except the 2nd one, that was terrible).

    On the topic of unpopular superhero scores, I think that X3 has the best score of all the X-Men films.
