    The Place Beyond The Pines - 8/10

    Just finished it, just loved it, to throw the proverbial cat in. Okay, a bit slow, but an entertaining cross-generational tale about choices and repercussions, father/son relationships, and closeted skeletons coming back. If you go in with expectations of what it'll be, you're doomed from the start.

    It's perfectly suited to a lazy Sunday in bed, definitely see how it would drag in cinema, and the question of whether RG can play owt but emotionally inept/immature characters still stands.

    Others from the week:

    42 - 6/10
    Story of Jackie Robinson, first black player recruited into MLB by the Dodgers, with Harrison Ford growling his way through a new larynx. S'okay, typical sports drama/bio with usual themes of fighting against the racism/prejudice.

    Iron Man 3 - yawn/10
    I'm no superhero fan, but fired this on in the background. My only question for Hollywood producers is why they continue to persist with faux tension and drama ? We know that everything will turn out okay, and they merely introduce boredom rather than intrigue. Compared to the deluge of cable TV that'll kill indiscriminately, major character or not, it's just too flat I'm afraid.......

    Fair enough.

    Just annoyed me the other day when I spoke to my friends brother about Iron Man 3 ... he thoroughly enjoyed and likes his comic book films.

    It was then I asked him if he saw it in 3D or a traditional screening:

    "Nah, I just watched it on my computer."

    So ... yeah.

    Sorry if I bothered you though.

    Problem is with Iron man its now just Tony Stark angst followed by a quick showdown with a random new baddie.

    Rinse and repeat.

    After 3 films Iron Man has nowhere to go.

    Plus could you ever reboot it..............Downey Jr will forever be Tony Stark

    @Blaketown - My stance is that just because something is about horror tropes, doesn't mean it has to be scary, to me it was a satire.

    I don't really find most horror films scary tbh, but I enjoyed the writing in this so much, it was ridiculous fun. Each to their own.

    As far as I see it, Cabin in the Woods was never meant to deliver scares. It's supposed to mislead you, then go off on a crazy tangent and follow it through to its ridiculous conclusion, spoofing all manner of shit along the way.
    It's playful, it has a wry sense of humour, and it commits to its shtick. All of which is helped along by snappy writing. I loved it.

    Fair enough.

    Speaking of non-scary movie tangents, did anyone else think, while watching Event Horizon, that it was all some sort of big meta joke? It's not even a case of 'so bad it's good' - I was completely convinced that it was an elaborate prank on the viewer, one I didn't really understand but nevertheless found hilarious.

    @Goodfella I really liked it. Especially how it took each cliche and blew them apart before heading to a point where there can never be a sequel.

    Yeah, this is my argument, which I've had in this very thread before. Possibly more than once. It does seem to polarise people though, and it's one of those things that people *fundamentally* don't want shift their opinion on. People just not liking it because it's not their thing, fair enough, but a lot of the way the criticism is articulated makes me think some people were watching it in a very different context to me.

    @Chopsen totally agreed. I think if you know Joss Whedon before you watch it you'd appreciate the satire more. If you go in expecting straight horror you'd probably not get it.

    The Crow: Salvation

    Not bad, but not a patch on the original.

    6/10

    I haven't seen any of The Hulk movies. His character was utterly retarded in the Avengers movie, so I feel no inclination to waste around 4 hours of my life watching the 2 Hulk films.
    That you even have the pure shite that is Spidey 3 and X-Men 3 in there makes this list null and void.

    Hmm, of your list I've only managed to see films in the bottom half, but from what I've seen, I agree (First Class clearly better than Avengers or Iron Man 2). The Bana Hulk and Norton Hulk are both more interesting characters than Ruffalo's Hulk IMO, but both films most definitely have their flaws.

    That Wolverine is on the list makes me question it most. That was one of the worst action films I've seen, let alone Superhero or Marvel.

    Xmen was great, wolverine and xmen 3 were rubbish.

    I enjoyed Avengers a lot more than Hulk or Captain America, not seen Thor or Iron Man films.
  • Deleted user 5 May 2013 18:19:07
    To have Spidey 3 so high is also quite worrying.
  • Deleted user 5 May 2013 18:26:57
    Spidey 2 isn't even on the list, and that was the best one of the trilogy.

    Never said I didn't like it. It's great. Script is brilliant, it's great fun.

    It's just it's a pretty well worn path, the horror pastiche and there are so many films that have done it better that I feel the unreserved praise is a bit much.

    Or, you know, I "didn't get it". That's always a winner.

    The Numbers Station - 7/10
    It was a reasonably predictable story, but the script was very tight. Everything made sense, everything of relevance was sutiably referenced beforehand, and the characters' personalities and developments all came off as believable and realistic. It never really did more than what it said on the tin, but I thought the director did well with a small set (RAF bunker in Suffolk) and John Cusack's performance was quite thoughtful.

    The Expatriate - 3/10
    Woeful, generic and utterly uninspired action thriller with Aaron Eckhart. Ex-CIA Black ops, yada yada yada, you've heard it all before. I watched it to the end, as it was reasonably short, and there was at least one set piece in there that I genuinely liked, but really this is something to throw on in the background while you're cooking or gaming or whatever.

    I knoiw what he's done. The list is back to front! Obviously!!! Right? If not then he has no right to ever comment on anything ever again.

    Ang lees hulk is is the best, up until that shtoopid ending. The other one is alright and a good romp.

    Pain & Gain
    1/10
    Michael Bay needs somef therapy. remember the inexplicable part in transformers 2 with John Malkovitch tickling a transformer? The whole movie is a reenactment of this nonsensical shit.
