    The problem with Public Enemies was always that it wasted its potential. Lex Luthor as President of the United States? With the influence to oppose Superman like never before? In a position to prove himself as the prime human being? And a situation where you can explore both his character and Superman's when faced with potentially common threats which don't necessarily make them allies, or situations where one can't oppose the other despite having to, or maybe when one of them ends up being right and the other wrong? It has to be one of the best premises DC ever had to work with. Instead it's turned into a strange plot with a meteorite and Lex is reduced to injecting kryptonite into himself and getting crazy. Oh well. Not surprising considering it was written by Jeph Loeb.

    Top-notch thriller based on real events, with serious deep plot, raw realistic action, and really good actors.

    I really liked it, but - but!!!
    what on earth is with the cry-fuck scene? Could whatever that meant have been conveyed in any different way than a cry-fuck scene!? I'm pretty sure it could, whatever it was :I

    Yes, that scene was a bit off. Thankfully it's very short moment appearing at the end of the movie, so no harm done.

    Greatly disappointed by Jurassic World.

    Whiny kids, shitty acting, overly obvious special effects in places where you shouldn't use special effects, crappy plot,...

    Huge budget, no worthwhile content. Bummer.

    Raptor squad was awesome though. It should get it's own morning cartoon!

    Don't watch The Martian guys, it sucks, anti intellectual to the core and they squander the entire premise halfway through just to Hollywood it up.

    Ugh Eli Roth, hey lets scare my ignorant countrymen into thinking every place outside of the US is horrible and going to kill them in the worst ways. Don't go camping or to Europe or to South America. Oh and your character in IG was an example impotent rage and was a crappy character and fan-service.

    A Midnight Clear (U.S. 1992)
    War movie with unique charm, this one got under my skin pretty easily. Without any overblown patriotism, without cheesy heroic action, this discreet flick is full of humanity instead.

    People say Moon is the better choice as far as lone-guy-in-space movies goes anyway.

    THe problems with the Martian are 1. The dialogue, it follows that school fo writting of just filling your script with "Snarky" remarks, the chaarcter of the protagonist is "Smartass nerd who makes references" which goes to....
    2. Pretty shallow characterization of any kind
    I mean there is even a dude whose character is "Being the latino guy", he is catholic, and he just laughs at everything. There is entire sections where it just is "Look at them smiling at their own jokes", and the main character doesn't have any emotional arc of any kind, he is the same guy at the end as he was at the beginning.
    And let's not forget the "Quirky Black scientist" who explains his theory in a "Quirky Modern manner!" with onomatopheias and such.

    3. Even tho there is no humanity to the characters the entire plot is the most overly emotional and anti intellectual shit ever. The bad guy is the guy who doesn't want to risk 5 astronauts and a multi million dollar space ship just to rescue 1 guy in an overly risky operation, while still looking for ways to help the guy.

    Watched Black Mass. Seemed pretty good to me, and considering it has Depp as main actor this is a decent plus. Feels like he finally got bored to play the same type of bizarre, eccentric character which only differs from previous ones for makeup and story setting.

    In my experience, the best fan trailer, of in my opinion, the best movie ever made:
