When are they going to make the 100 million dollar Go Bots movie?

I did a double feature yesterday. Went and saw Pacific Rim and The Lone Ranger. I liked them both. Pacific Rim was a lot of big action fun with giant robots fighting giant monsters and a fairly enjoyable cast of characters.

The Lone Ranger on the other hand was kind of like a Pirates of the Caribbean movie but set in the old west. I'm a fan of westerns, and I like what they did with the movie. It danced in between a movie that kids would enjoy but also a move directed toward adults. Toward the end, when the Lone Ranger music kicked in, it really felt like a Lone Ranger story. Everything clicked together and it was very nostalgic. Plus the casting was excellent for the movie. The villains did a superb job. I definitely recommend checking it out. Very fun movie.

I thought The Lone Ranger was messy. The tone was inconsistent/inappropriate. They put a slaughter scene next to humour scenes. The action was also way too over the top for my tastes. I'll agree that the casting was good though.

I saw Warm Bodies the other night and I was surprised at how much I liked it. It reminded me a lot of WALL-E and Edward Scissorhands, but I love both of those movies, so I didn't really mind. Smile

First post back!

WWZ didn't suck, though it had absolutely nothing to do with the novel and makes me question why they paid for the rights if they weren't going to use the story.

Pacific Rim was a loving tribute to kaiju films from Japan decades ago and I loved it, I'm buying it as soon as possible.

Warm Bodies was a great movie. I especially enjoyed all the Romeo and Juliet parallels.

I saw The Cabin in the Woods recently, and I thought it was excellent.

I re-watched Warm Bodies yesterday and decided that I love it. I made a YouTube playlist of the songs from it. It had a great soundtrack! And, yeah, I noticed the Romeo and Juliet references. Cool

I first saw it in the movie theater here on my college campus, and when they got to the balcony scene, the audience had a delightful mixed reaction of "OMG! It's Romeo and Juliet!" and "Ugh! It's Romeo and Juliet."

I saw some movie recently, but I don't remember what it was. Oh yeah, it was Now You See Me.

Do Not See Movie.

I also saw After Earth a few weeks ago and really liked it. I don't know how people feel about it, but I bet it's underrated.

Could have told you Now You See Me would suck, I saw that coming when I saw the trailer and everyone I know who went anyway has confirmed that.

@Alan: Oh thank god, that was a franchise that missed potential with its 3rd film and pumped out an awful 4th. It needs to go to the graveyard.

Doubt they'll cancel it entirely, Caedus, though I wish they would. But I agree enough is enough. If they're so determined to do a 5th film, then it should be the last, period Would have been better if they ended it with AWE as originally intended instead of falling prey to monetary greed.
