Saw Black Panther today after postponing it on Friday, because there were no seats.


Wakandans get the gold trophy for bad@$$ery. Everyone go home.

They saddle trained rhinos, damn it!

American Poltergeist.
Wow it was bad, like really bad. The actors had no charisma or chemistry, the lines was as engaging as on-shoot line reading and the atmosphere was nil. And the lack of suspense was not replaced by gore either so you basically had nothing to see.

I found scarier eBay listings while watching this movie... $300 for a 2012 Muckman, that's spookier then the entire movie and it got a sequel.

This was 3 starts on Netflix, wat?

The best part is the cinematography, it was on par with backyard movies me and my friends where doing in our early teens, using the camera zoom and all.

Saw the Mummy remake, I think because I was expecting it to be awful I didn't find it that bad, not great but okay... prefer the older one.

Coraline, left with a few questions on the creature, maybe the book will fill have more details.

Just debating whether to wait until the roads clear (snow) and buy Thor or buy if from sky so I have it today

I just watched Big Hero 6 and what a mediocre movie, I mean it's not bad but it doesn't do anything new or fun. After all the great stuff I heard about it I thought it would be amazing but it's a generic superhero movie.

Yes, I did love Baymax but he doesn't redeem the whole movie being your standard superhero origin.

Stephen King's The Mist.
It was a pretty good movie up until the end which ruined a lot of the experience by turning it into a "wha wha!" moment, somehing we really didn't need in a movie that was fairly serious and creepy. The effects and creature design was good but some of the effects was showing its age.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
What a mess of a movie, weird pacing but had some neat action scenes. The movie does have a weird montage of Arthur basically goes out gringing to leveling up, and Kung fu fighters just what Arthurian stories was missing.

But I do wonder if the Haradrim knows that Mordred stole their Oliphaunts

Finally managed to catch the Warcraft film. Work schedule finally worked out with a time HBO had it on. Wasn't quite sure what to expect, I know it didn't do that hot in theaters, but actually liked it a lot. Earlier in the timeline than I was ever familiar with, but fun recognizing and trying to figure out certain places and people.

Hope a second does happen. Would be fun to see it catch up to what I'm familiar with.


Only complaints... What, no rogues? Not even one involved and used for his/her skills during combat? Come on... And the (High) Elves only made a cameo... meh. (Though I prefer them as Blood Elves anyhow.)

The movie didn't do well in the US. But did extremely well in China.

Lego Batman movie was pretty great. I wish they had Batman feel a bit more sorry for what he did but I understand it was over the top purposely. Great movie, surprised at all the homo-erotic moments between Batman and Joker too. A lot of jokes had me laughing like Barbara's, "If I'm Batgirl can I call you Batboy?" and "Ironman Sucks!"

Jesus Christ, what a terrible movie. It's a shame that they wasted all those good VFX on two terrible lead actors and awful plot and dialogue.

Both parts of Hot Shots and Die Hard 5.
Hot Shots are comedy gold classic and Die Hard 5 is borefest.

Rewatched Ragnarok last night.
Man, that movie got so many things right.
And the performances were all amazing.

I bought that last week, I wasn't too sure on everything they did but I did find it very enjoyable, agreed on the performances too.

Watched Wonder Woman for the first time a few days ago, it was pretty decent.

I think it's quite honestly Hiddleston's best Loki performance.
And we certainly got a whole lot more range out of Hulk.

I need to see Wonder Woman again. I've only seen it the once, and I was very distracted by spoilers that didn't actually end up being spoilers to pay attention.

Yeah, the Hulk had spent the last 2 years being hulk so I suppose there's room for development there

I didn't have a massive interest to race out and see Wonder Woman when it came out but interested enough to take a look eventually. I used to watch the old series but don't remember much.

I love that "That's how it feels!" moment in the arena when Loki jumps up. So funny! And poor Banner trying not to freak out after finding himself on an alien planet. I really felt bad for him. And Loki redeemed himself well. Even if it wasn't entirely altruistic.

Annihilation. Did anyone watch this? It's one of the greatest films in known history.
