Spot on. Just a gaggle of the most popular and best looking actors jammed onto a screen with De Niro and C.K. sprinkled in.

And they used a director who was supposed to be the next hottest thing to complete the Hollywood circle jerk of creating a movie that people paid attention to because that is what we were told to do.

Thank you. The thing that frustrated me most was seeing Jennifer Lawrence cast as a frustrated, crazy, seemingly 30s-ish housewife at 23 years old. The same director, David O. Russell, cast her again in a similar role as the lead in Joy. The real Joy that Lawrence was portraying was in her mid-30s when the film took place.

There are films that I’ve genuinely enjoyed seeing Lawrence in, but she’s never been convincing enough to me to play someone much older than she is.

So when it ended I was really pissed. You don't get to claim it's based on true events when only the first 10 minutes have any basis in reality. You just made all of that up.

The bigger issue I had with the ending* was how all the dinosaurs ended up getting released. "Oh no let's let them all out of their cages. Oh, that didn't work, let's open this giant ass door that we could have opened with them still confined in their cages." Dumb asses.

Edit: Had to correct myself since u/Flexhead is an asshat.

Pretty accurate that the adults, the ones who lived through the original Jurassic Park event, were willing to let the last dinosaurs, the lifeblood of the franchise, die, but the little kid, aka their new target audience didn't want them to die. That movie was made for kids, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Honestly I think dinosaurs in the wild would be about as dangerous as bears and lions. Like, yea, if you get close to them they'll be dangerous but predators kill when they are hungry and when they are cornered. I think the most common thing that would happen is you would hear about a T-rex killing a tourist because they got out of their vehicle or got too close or threw a water bottle at them. That kind of shit gets people gored in national parks all the time.

level 10

T-rex probably would ignore people and would just go for cattle and the like. They aren't murder machines

Good actor, and he IS Jack Sparrow. The others where he tries to go weird (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), he just goes off the deep end and it's more cringey IMO. Just tries too hard to be kooky. His serious roles are pretty good, though.

He's weird in it, but he plays it so well that it's believable. That is the way Captain Jack Sparrow (worst pirate I've heard of!) is. There is no one else I could picture in that role after seeing Depp play it. And he's very entertaining. I love those movies, and he's a big part of the reason. I cannot say anything bad about his portrayal of Jack Sparrow.

How is this the top rated comment??

The man has probably 5 classics on the board in Pirates 1, Edward Scissorhands, Fear & Loathing, Blow, What's Eating Gilbert Grape

Follow that up with cult classics like Dead Man, Cry Baby, Nightmare on Elm St., Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow

Movies from all genres like Black Mass to Chocolat to Nick of Time to From Hell to Sweeny Todd to Finding Neverland to Donnie Brasco.

Of course he has misses, any actor doing that many movies, especially late in his career has misses but the man is arguably a top 10 actor all-time in terms of talent and quality of movies he's put out.

Tremors is by no means underrated.

Even if you overlook the fact it spawned a litany of sequels (none anywhere near as good as the original), Tremors is used in most film classes as a perfect example of a lean movie perfectly cut. There is no filler or fluff, every single scene moves the plot forward. Nothing superfluous. Tremors is most definitely a masterpiece.

I agree.

I normally like Clint Eastwood films and I read the original American Sniper book and liked it a lot.

But the film was just so stereotypical. Big muscular redneck beats up guy cheating with his girlfriend after a rodeo, joins Navy, goes to Iraq and beats up kills a fuck ton of terrorist, then comes home and goes and struggles with PTSD, but with a healthy mix of Jesus, family, and love of country overcomes it.

I can deal with movies that have a patriotic slant (I mostly liked Lone Survivor) but American Sniper just felt so corny and almost propoganda.

It'll do well simply because the first one did well and has such a rabid following. There will be a HUGE ad campaign leading up to its release, so even if it doesn't get the lasting obsession that the first one got, the first weekend/wave will do extremely well just because people loved the first movie so much and haven't discovered how shitty the second one is (hypothetically). So even if it's not as good or as loved as the first, there is still tons of money to be made, and for that reason, the people working on it will see great success.

As long as they have Olaf, a decently magical experience and a good plot, it'll be fine.

Tangled is better written, on the whole the music is better, the jokes are funnier, and the whole plot seems better thought out and paced. Even the characters are better developed.

Frozen blew up so big because it had an amazing ballad that is fun as heck to sing along with, and that Hans twist was pretty great.

level 4

I loved the way Tangled opens the story in the beginning - it feels like a perfect fairytale beginning (without going as far to do the cliche book opening). It tells the story nicely and gives reason and logic to how Rapunzel’s powers work, why she’s locked in the tower, etc.

On the flip side though, I prefer the environments to Frozen much more than Tangled. I love Tangled’s beginning and end, but I felt like the middle dragged for a while. They were in an ordinary forest for quite a while and visited that random mine location. Whereas Frozen not only had beautiful winter scenes, but it was like the animators tried to take advantage of every idea possible they could do with the snow. I felt like with how creative those animators are, they could have come up with more ideas for the forest/environment scenes. Tangled does have some beautiful moments here and there (I mean that lantern scene OMG 10/10), but I felt like Frozen was consistently beautiful and appealing to watch throughout the whole film which is one reason I enjoyed it a little more.

That’s just my nerdy rambling though, to each their own of course. Always like hearing other opinions!

I dislike the Hans twist - I think it's great that he ended up being the badguy, but he didn't need to be cacklingly evil badguy - He could have kissed Anna, found it didn't work, and decided that that was proof that Elsa was evil and gone off to kill her because of it... He could have been a righteous villain, a character you felt bad for rather than hated. Would have been a much more interesting story arc while still being understandable to a kid.

See my problem with Frozen was that they threw away what could have been a fantastic plot line. Their original storyboards had Elsa as the "bad guy" and they were setting her up as one. (Not bad in the sense that she was in it for the evulz.)

But then they had to make the shocking twist™ that Hans was the real bad guy and throw in the creepy reindeer guy.

It could have been a far deeper story with the same great music, but instead...

Edit: sorry accidentally switched up Anna and Elsa.

From what I heard it was the "Let it Go" song. They didn't think it was something the "villain" would sing, and they did not want to let the song go to waste. So they changed the plot and added some new characters.

62 points · 1 month ago · edited 1 month ago

Let It Go was a perfect song for an anti-villain/anti-hero, like dang people. She didn't have to be evil or good, just a little bit of both, and if they'd gone with that, the movie would've been fine.

I felt lied to when it came to Hans. There weren't any hints to his treachery, and it in the long run, didn't make a lick of sense.

level 5
78 points · 1 month ago

There were actually a few hints for Hans betrayal, but they were pretty subtle.

He does mention he has 12 older brothers. You can guess he's not inheriting anything.

Love is an Open Door is just a pile of foreshadowing. Throughout the song, you can see Hans being slightly behind Anna, the lyrics are a bit off (Hans says you and Anna says I. Both are referring to Anna and not Hans.), and Hans gestures to the kingdom when he says he's found his place. He's also visibly confused at times.

Everyone rightfully brings up it's crazy to marry someone you just met.

He radically changes his personality and mannerisms throughout the movie to fit the situation.

When the crossbow knocks the chandelier down, you can see Hans look up at it before redirecting the shot at it.

Wonder Woman. I get the social importance of it, but the movie itself really goes off the rails towards the end. It's 2/3rds a good super hero movie (which are highly overrated relatively speaking already). It was also setup to make a nice statement on the nature of the evils of humanity, but just kind of lost it somewhere.

Also what the fuck was up with hiding her sword behind her back in a backless dress? Sure no one in front sees it but she literally walks through a crowd of people looking in every direction. It's blatantly visible to anyone not looking head on.

The last act issue is a common complaint, even for those who enjoyed it.

level 3

All ridiculous sword-hiding is just a Highlander joke to me.

I would say that the first third of the film isn't really that great either. Slow-mo is used far too much and some of the dialogue on that island is pretty poor at points.

I couldn't get over the fact that the Ancient Greek god of war's true form was exactly the same as his WW1 englishman disguise but like, bigger and a bit more fire-y-er

They could have just had a different actor play "God" Ares. That would have solved the whole issue.

Honestly, the whole vibranium=super tech made no friggin sense to me, partly because they didn't explain how this stuff was able to be used as such a multidimensional piece of technology, and partly because threw in spiritual stuff on top of everything else.

IMO I think if they'd gone full magic (i.e. Dr Strange) or full technology (Iron Man) it'd be a more cohesive story.

Also, I realize that the Powers that be want all the characters to come together in the present day but I felt like Wonder Woman is more interesting as a period piece and having Steve around adds a lot of interest to the story telling as well.

I enjoyed 2/3rds of this movie, but got SUPER SALTY that it wasn't until Steve died that she came into her own. That whole scene was like... dude fridging? Which I know isn't as much of a trope as ladies being fridged, but I still think it was totally unnecessary that Diana needed to ~lose the man she loved~ in order to vagina up and be a superhero.

level 3

It's not dude-fridging if the dude is a fully realized deuteragonist who drives most of the plot.

Yeah it was fun once, doesn't hold up outside of being a gimmick though.

The actual movie, writing, acting etc isn't anything special or even good IMO.

Am I the only person on Reddit that liked Avatar?

I loved:

  1. Every time I watch that movie I notice something new

  2. The military hardware made sense as a logical extension of hardware today

  3. The actor that played the Colonel was fantastic and spot on, reminded me of many different officers I knew in the military

  4. I liked how the main character was put in an impossible situation by working for the Colonel but becoming a member of the tribe at the same time

I can think of more, but these are just off the top of my head
