I've only seen Hangover 2 so far.. Want to see Super 8 and Bridesmaids.. Lukewarm on Thor..
what about YOU
i don't give a fuck about thor. i grew up and still (obviously) am a comic nerd. don't know to this day if i've EVER read a thor comic. only ever enjoyed the reboot of the character in "the ultimates" (and that's cuz he was batshit crazy) but man, i'm telling you . . . go see thor.
visually amazing, the casting, the story, kenneth branagh (the ONLY guy who could have made this movie right) plus: kat dennings.
but seriously, everything on earth is like 7.5 or 8. everything in asgard or the frost realms and all that shit is sooooooooo fucking awesome. 10+ for nerds. and idris elba is the most hard assed vikinggod motherfucker ever.
super 8. everything you expect. it's abrams doing the early 80's spielberg-wonder-epic. and it's REAL good. jj is the ONLY guy working right now in the big leagues who should
try a spielberg-wonder-epic. but it also demonstrates a powerful point. abrahms ain't
spielberg-in-his-prime. there's a handful of things that're so hamfisted that they feel like he's POUNDING his point into your brain. (and the final climax is a 50pound sledge of the metaphor for the whole fucking movie that hurts when it hits.
) but i still fucking loved it every bit as much as i knew i would.
Green Lantern looks awful..
no, EVERYthing about ryan reynolds and earth looks awful. everything about the corp, and parallax and hell, even hector hammond looks fucking awesome. michael clark duncan as killowog is inspired, both in it's perfection AND its obviousness. geoffery rush will be perfect voicing tomar-re. and what i'm seeing of mark strong as sinestro makes me sooooo excited about sequels that'll incororate the his turn to the dark side and the sinestro corps wars and we won't need much earth and "people."
but yeah, ryan's the worst pick ever for hal, and the suit's a fucking insult.
cap looks awesome, too, and i was REALLY against the chris evans casting, but other than how the freakish cgi of his "skinny" body with his normal head creeps me out everytime i see the ad, everything else looks pretty badassed.
