If you like Cillian Murphy, rent Intermission. It's kinda crass but utterly engrossing how every event in the film is intertwined. Next I'm watching Men in Black 3, shaking things up a little.

Well, I saw Iron Man 3 and I have no clue what my opinion is on it...

I did enjoy the more serious tone it brought though. Don't get me wrong, I loved the previous Iron Man movies and the Avengers with their light-hearted fun, but the change of pace for IM3 was refreshing.

I loved Iron Man 3. Won't spoil a thing; all I'll say is that I really really enjoyed the twist. I didn't see it coming, and I like when I'm genuinely surprised by a movie like that.

Was it better than Iron Man 1? I'd say no. Was it better than Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America? Yes (especially the first and third of that list).

If I had to rate the Marvel movies (including the ones made by other studios) since 1990:

Avengers
X2: X-Men United
Spider-Man 2
X-Men 1
Incredible Hulk
X-Men: First Class
Iron Man 1
Thor
Amazing Spider-Man
Iron Man 3
Blade 1
Spider-Man 1
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Iron Man 2
Captain America: The First Avenger
Daredevil
X-Men: The Last Stand
Blade 2
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Spider-Man 3
Blade 3
Punisher
Hulk
Ghost Rider
Fantastic Four 1
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Not Seen:
-Elektra
-Punisher: War Zone

Bearing in mind that I think I enjoyed the bulk of these. Even the lower quality ones I found enjoyable in the sense that I had fun watching them. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance would get a 6.5/10.

Good list! I almost completely agree, but I'd bump up all Blade movies, or at least the first two and Punisher one because I like those more than just about any other Marvel movies. But that's just a personal thing.

I feel like it's objective, but you can call it personal, to bump Avengers down below Captain America, AKA. the division between the good and the bad Marvel movies. I'd also switch Cap'n with Iron Man 2, which is the last movie that can get away with being on the good side and rightly belongs on the bottom.

Which Hulk is which? I just call them Hulk 1 and 2. Ang Lee's hulk is seriously underrated IMO, and Hulk 2 belongs next to Iron Man 2 at any rate.

I won't bother comparing it with all the other Marvel films, but I will compare it with the rest of the Avengers films.

1. Iron Man
2. Avengers
3. Iron Man 3
4. Captain America
5. Iron Man 2
6. The Incredible Hulk
7. Thor

I know I did a list like this before and some of positions have changed since. I have a very flexible opinion and its subject to change with repeat viewings and whatnot.

The Blade movies were really good, just not AS good, IMO, as some other recent ones.

See, my view on Captain America is odd. I really liked the first half, everything up to the rescue mission at the HYDRA base and the Red Skull's face reveal. After that, I felt it went downhill really fast. Not much motivation beyond "blow up HYDRA bases". It went way too quickly, and so the big fight at the end was anticlimactic. We didn't get enough of a sense of all the great things Cap did in the war.

Hulk is the Ang Lee one. The second one is The Incredible Hulk, which is one of my favourites (fifth from the top, better than Iron Man 1 even). But Hulk is one of my favourite characters.

Ender's Game trailer

Already, I can see they're taking some liberties with the book by making Ender and the other kids older, but I completely understand why they did that. It looks great and I cannot wait to see it in November! I just hope they can stay faithful to the key essential parts of the book.

After my experience with John Carter, I will not be reading Ender's Game before the movie. I'll have a much better chance of enjoying it this way.

PBS showed the classic Planet Of The Apes. It's been a while since I've seen it and it was cool to see how many little things that were incorporated into the newer prequel Rise, such as the protagonist getting sprayed with a water hose and yelling, "it's a madhouse!"

I like the very beginning of the film with Heston on the starship in the cockpit, just smoking a cigarette like it's nothing.

I saw The Great Gatsby last weekend. I have a mixed opinion of it. I knew to expect Moulin Rouge style visuals and music, which I felt worked wonderfully in some scenes, but others....let's just say it came across as awkward and weird.

My friend said it was pretty much Bioshock meets Jay-Z. I have yet to see it but from other things I hear this seems pretty accurate.

I bought my ticket for Friday! I'm going to the place with the reserved seats.

I will gladly pay for reserved seats, any day of the week. It makes it so much easier. I can enjoy my dinner and not worry about getting in line super-early.
