    And that's why it's great.

    yeah not saying its bad a thing. I'm happy with the ending. I just wanted the stakes to be higher and the action to be more slick. Basically how Trinity at the end manhandled the analyst. that was the type of fighting that was needed. Boundaries were not pushed. Choreography seemed lazy. Instead we had Neo in his PJs for the whole film.

  2. well, miles better than Joss Whedons movie. Still feel there is no chemistry between the characters. They all just seemed wooden and dreary. Ezra is such a miscast. His acting was cringe and I just cant understand why he wasn't recast for the solo movie. Would have been nice to know why Supes chose the black costume. How did Darkseid forget Earth had the anti-life equation?? 4 hours and still a lot of holes. As for the action...I cant understand why that wasn't included in its entirety in Josstice League. Was much better. 

     

    Anyways, it was good. Not great.

  3. I enjoyed the movie because of Kano. But why not stay true to the actual canon? Inventing Cole was lame and pointless when you have tonnes of other characters to choose from. The movie needed more work in the story and editing department. Didnt feel very gelled together. Scorpion and sub zero felt a bit of a downer after the build up because it had Cole in the fight too. Some great moments and laughs but also some things that potentially can ruin this franchise. Hoping sequel improves on the flaws and actually has the damn tournament.

  4. Saw it yesterday in BFI IMAX.

     

    I enjoyed it but I didn't understand shit! I probably heard about 40% of the dialogue. Just couldn't make out anything. It was frustrating in the beginning but then I just said screw it, just watch the image instead. Towards the end it sort of made sense but after watching it I googled what it was about. Finally understand it and can't believe I missed so much. I will be watching this again with subtitles. Because the concept is unique and the film is well made. The action was incredible and Nolans directing will always be amazing. But damn he needs to get new sound mixers. It was soooo bad. I know I saw it in IMAX and so the sound would be even louder than conventional cinemas but this is unforgivable. Since Bane every movie he has made had incomprehensible dialogue at times. But this one was just throughout the whole thing. I know I will enjoy it more with a subtitled viewing but it was upsetting to watch a movie and not understand most of it. 

     

    Having said that the movie was just so well done not to enjoy it. Was a B- when the movie ended but once I read the story online I give it a B. I am sure with repeat viewings it will go up.

  5. Just don't see the point of not being faithful to the source material. Cassandra Cain, what a waste of a potential. The girl who could take on Batman in the comics is a pick pocket. Black Canary used her cry right at the end like wtf? Thats her main weapon. Huntress wearing 90's get up. Come on man. As for Renee...nope sorry too old. Just give them the damn costumes. They would have looked so much cooler.

     

    The movie was only enjoyable because of Ewan Mcgregor who was awesome and Margot as Harley. Victor Zsasz. Omg dont get me started on that fucker. Could have named him anything else. 

     

    Anyways even with all that bullshit i still enjoyed it. Even though Harley has no business being in a Birds of Prey movie unless she is the antagonist. Nor was it needed to be R rated. There was absolutely no gore.

     

    Pity it flopped. Deserved atleast 300m ww.

    Onus is on Gunn now to save this corner of the DCEU. Hope WB change the projected rating of R to PG13. Or release both versions?

  6. Where to begin?

     

    Overall a decent film with many issues.  Not sure i have a problem with acting or even action. I think the weakness is in the pacing and the story.

     

    I am one who was on the fence with TLJ. It was a well made movie but changed so much of where this story was heading that to correct the course changes needed to be made that would make elements of the previous movie redundant. I blame Rian for the problems here. Maybe if he stuck to JJ's original vision the story would have flowed better. The course correcting was difficult to do with just one movie and even then it was a short movie. So you can imagine how quick the editing was. The movie jumped about from scene to scene and we couldn't digest the scenes properly.

     

    Rey is a Palpatine. Ok, fine. If not a Skywalker it would make sense to have her be from the dark bloodline. Hence why she is so powerful. I just felt when they mentioned cloning done by Palpatine (is he one himelf?) i figured maybe she is a female clone of Anakin. But nope, a full on Palpatine. How and when that happened, we will never know. Her destroying Palpatine on her own made Ben Solo being there pointless. I expected him to fly back take the second lightsaber and say 'i am a Jedi, like my mother (or uncle) before me and my Grandfather before them). Would have been so epic as they both fried the emperor. For having so much foresight the emperor didn't realise he could just take their essence and regenerate himself? Dimwit.

     

    The emperors existence should have been shown at the end of TLJ. There was just too much to clear up in this movie. So a Palpatine finally killed a Palpatine. So why did we have 6 movies about the Skywalkers? lol

     

    Wtf was up with the Knights of Ren. Were they not jedi students with Kylo? why no light sabers or even any use of the force? Absolutely pointless including them. Waste of space. 

     

    Turns out what Finn wanted to say was he is force sensitive and not that he loves Rey. How hard was it to include it in the movie. Poor fella never got to tell her. 

     

    Leia scenes were awkward but understandable. It was a nice send off to her. Was also nice to see her daughter grace the screen a few more times. 

     

    Anyways all in all it was a decent watch but just too much for one movie. TLJ is now redundant. what a waste of a movie. It really didn't push the plot along at all now that you see how it ends. Stupid Rian. Kathleen also needs to go. Made a bigger mess then George himself did. 

     

    I feel the franchise will never be as big as it originally was or reach the highs of TFA at the boxoffice. I truly hope i am wrong because this will always be one of the highlights of my childhood. Marvel rules now the force will have to take a backseat.

  7. well it wasn't bad so there's that. 

     

    Just felt really upset with johns death considering it didn't make sense and that Cameron suggested this. Carl must have been sent before the T1000, so why did it take him so long to kill John?

     

     The new 'John' messiah was lame and she was  just not believable. 

     

    The movie at times felt like the movies of old but there was still something missing. I don't know. Maybe cos its from a different future so i didnt have any nostalgic link to it. Action was decent and the de-aging at the beginning was the best it has ever been. 

     

    For me it was just sad that John was no more. When Carl said for John the final time i thought i was going to cry cos T2 is my childhood man. 

     

    Finally Legion and Rev9? lol wtf. That was just lame. Sorry that shit aint got nothing on Skynet. Still think the T-3000 concept was the best next generation terminator after the T1000. Pity Genysis fucked that up.

  8. Just give the guy an oscar already. One of the best performances i have ever seen. Unreal. I liked the link to the Wayne murders. 

     

    Movie itself was great. No idea what Americans are so worried about but then i guess just a different culture over here (in the UK). We don't have all have the same problems. I thought the message was quite clear. Don't cut public health spending! lol

     

    Well shot film by Todd Philips, i'm sad it wasn't better received by the US critics. But i feel there is always an anti-DC bias from some critics. They have already made their mind up for anything that isn't Marvel. DC/WB deserves it for some of the turds they have let out but not all. 

     

    Anyways Joker is laughing all the way to fucking bank lol.
