  1. I think it's just people didn't care for this one. Didn't feel like an event, at least for me. Then again I've been in my own little world for the past 6 months so I'm the last person to talk to about this. Or it just could be that Star Wars is the black hole on the horizon that is sucking all the energy out of every tentpole or wannabe tentpole released. And GTFO with the the racism talk.
  2. X2: X-Men United > X-Men (first one is ok, but X2 just tears it apart) Final Destination 2 > Final Destination (really like the first, but FD2 just kicks ass) There are sequels that I prefer over the originals, but that doesn't make the originals "average" films at all, just that the sequels were better IMO. Terminator 2 Aliens Matrix Reloaded
  3. Terminator Salvation (I love the first three, yes, even T3,. This one was putrid.) Matrix Revolutions (Reloaded is my favorite actually, but Revolutions is just blegh) Transformers 4 (First three are decent to really good, this one was just mehhhhh, yawnnn, zzzzzz) Jurassic Park III (Love to death the original, Lost World was great) Alien 3 (they kill off our Newt and Hicks five minutes into the film, WTF) Final Destination 4 (pure shit, but love the other four) Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides (Huge fan of the original trilogy, my favorite is actually AWE, but this one is just a big whatever in all aspects)
  4. There are a few reasons why I think this happens. 1. They are past their prime. They had their heyday and are now simply basking in the sun. I mean if I was someone like Ridley Scott or Stanley Kubrick and I had already done Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, etc. I'd just sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I made a dent and left my mark on pop culture and history. I can die happy. At least that's how I see it. 2. Ties together with the notion of their prime being behind them. They no longer have as much ambition, passion, or enthusiasm for their projects like they used to. When you are young, you have the motivation, the push, the drive to strive to make something epic, memorable, and awesome. Once you have achieved that and more, you settle into this mold or routine of same old, same old, much like any other job. Something that was once new and exciting and exhilarating has now become tedious, repetitive, and boring. You no longer have the same desire to do it as you once had before. 3. The money. Some directors know that they have already made their magnum opus, or at least have a few films or so that they have great pride in having made. At this point in their lives, they simply don't care as much, and are in it probably more for the money than the passion of making a certain film. Much like a regular job itself. "I have been promoted to District Manager, I have a nice steady income, I can settle down. Even if the job is a chore, it provides my paycheck, so why bother?" Those are my three cents, at least.
  5. Just saw it again today. Love this film. I'm a disaster porn enthusiast and this is very well made. Plus its one of the films I grew up with so obviously it holds a little special place in my heart. A-
  6. I tend to have a soft spot for "shitty" sequels.
  7. And this: Matrix Reloaded > The Matrix Back to the Future 2 > Back to the Future At World's End > All POTC films I'm ready. Come get it.
  8. Alien over Aliens??? Terminator over T2??? Y'all need to chill.
  9. I eat Popcorn with Tapatio. Too good. And its easy to sneak in a small bottle of the stuff into a theater. My friends all snuck in wings from Buffalo Wild Wings at opening night for Jurassic World lol. Reminded me of that scene from Scary Movie. Ugh and I still haven't seen Jurassic World a second time.
  10. HOLY SHIT, that is huge. I'm seeing it again tomorrow in IMAX hopefully. Gotta contribute to it at least once more lol.
