    I owed this to my childhood. Wasn't too shabby!

    Quite the mess, but I kinda liked the ending.

    Watched After Earth when I noticed it was airing on TV; was curious why it got bad reviews
    agree, bad movie. no plot and amateurish directing.

    Rented Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
    Great film with good acting/plot, funny and special effects

    Wow, you really made an effort to dig out that old post. :D

    Really bad. It's a predictable movie that relies on amateurish camera angles and plot twists so obvious, you see them coming a mile away.

    Not worthy of being called an Alien movie. The 71% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is unfathomable. I was at least somewhat entertained
    at certain points of the movie but I'd rather watch the first two movies again than another one like this.

    All the posters available for it are garbage, too. They look like Alien Covenant is a serial killer movie about a guy stalking urban residents
    in the shower.

    I don't know why I am digging these old posts, initially I was being lazy of finding poster/uploading to image host site and posting, but finding these old post is quite a bit of work :lol: :hilarious:




    I watched the two Amazing Spider-Man movies since they were being aired on TV
    the ending of the second one explains why they are rebooting the series so soon, they killed an important character WTF

    Spider-Man 1 and 2 are still my favorite spider-man movies (2002 and 2004). Now there is "Spider-Man homecoming" movie being advertised as the best spider-man movie; which I seriously doubt specially with the silly name.

    People who's opinions I respect are saying Homecoming is in the top 3 of all Marvel movies ever.

    Wasn't planning on watching this tonight but it turned out that way. I have to admit, I was wrong about it.
    I had a lot of doubts from the beginning - mostly about the cast of the movie. I still think that about half of
    the people cast for it should've been replaced with other actors and actresses but most of the main ones
    did a pretty good job. The story was surprisingly OK, with only a few predictable moments.

    The visuals and sounds, however, were pretty fucking amazing. The first 30 minutes of the movie kind of
    made my jaw drop. This movie looks stunning for what it is. The future is quite scary.

    It's probably not going to happen, but they've introduced everyone quite well to the GITS universe now,
    and a sequel could probably be really, really good. Until then, I'll just have to rewatch the anime movies.

    That's good to hear about the new Spider-Man movie.
    My earlier opinion was due to the silly commercials I saw on TV.

    Regarding Ghost In The Shell, I've read it was well received in Japan; only outside of Japan is where the negativity surfaced.

    I think everyone else is just too serious about it. Like I was before I actually watched it :lol:.

    This is a bit of a weird one. The story and setup is super silly. The visuals, however, are very striking. Ever since
    they released the first teaser, I was a big fan of the design of the mummy. She looks amazing. The story didn't
    grab me very much, but the movie ended in a way I didn't see coming and I quite liked that.

    I was intrigued about this film since I saw the trailer, I used to love the previous 3 films when I was younger. Not so sure on the double iris thing, but she looks a good character.

    I've seen some posts on IMDb that there might be some similarities but this is a different Mummy.

    I haven't watched any of the other movies in a while, but as far as I know, these movies have nothing to do with each other.

    Oh I thought it was the same franchise but a different story!

    It's a reboot of the franchise. The overall tone is less comedic and a little more sinister.

    I read some people state that the movie would have been a lot better without Tom Cruise in it

    Not sure about that. Still need a main actor and while I don't really like him as a person, he's a good actor. He did a decent job.

    Went to see this today in the cinema. I don't know why but they actually decided to offer the Original Version, so I was able to
    watch it in English (and 3D), which I found super surprising because that usually doesn't happen in small cities like mine.

    It was pretty good. The movie didn't waste any time on a backstory and not starting from 0 was refreshing. The actors all did
    a good job. The story itself is decent and not everything's predictable. The best thing about the movie though is the amount of
    stunning visuals. They are really impressive, everything's super colorful and the designs of alien races, weaponry, ships, etc are
    just fun to watch on the big screen.

    It looks like it won't make enough money to justify a sequel, unfortunately. I had a good time and I'm glad I went to see it.

    Great film, not the best war film ever, but a pretty good one. This film ping-pongs between a few mini storylines and is very character driven. If you're expecting epic war scenes you might want to look elsewhere!

    Yeah, the advertisements I saw on TV for Dunkirk showed that it was mostly a psychological type of movie.

    Regarding Valerian.
    I think it suffered due to not having big stars as the lead in the movie.
    Also poor advertising and releasing it against tough competition.

    Also Rihanna is in the movie, she should stick to just singing
    it seems every movie she is in, suffers at the box office.

    Not sure about that. The actors did a good job and Rihanna's role isn't a huge one.

    Great movie. Amazing visuals and genuinely funny. Good space fun!

    Good to know it is a great movie
    I saw some review articles when the move was released that stated the makers of the series should not have bothered making a sequel.
