Re: Movies you’ve watched recently
Haven't posted in this thread in donkey's and I can't remember half of what I've seen recently but I'll through in my two cents worth on the movies mentioned above.
First off: Scotty, nathan has a serious point about your last post, you pretty much describe the entire ending and you should edit in a warning.
Then again, MoS should have come with a warning. Struggled to stay awake through the entire film. The action scenes are so overblown they just end up being dull. There's only so many times I can watch a guy get smashed through a building. Doing it to a bigger building does not revive the excitement. CG for it's own sake is no longer impressive. And I do have to agree with Denzel that the dramatic poignancy of some deaths was severly undermined by the catastrophic loss of life that went completely unremarked on.
The CG was also largely piss-poor with some of the character animation looking like mid-90s rejects.
And a special mention has to go to some of the worst dialogue ever to be written. “This man… is not our enemy” Actually buried my face in my hands at that one.
I also watched the Avengers for the first time recently. A good movie but maybe a little diappointing. I think the hype had just built this up to much for me.
Iron Man 3 kept me a lot more entertained than I thought it would considerg the utter shite-pile that was IM2. The CG team got carried away with a little too much bollocks towards the end but there was enough of the movie shot away from the suits to fit in some properly engaging plot. Got in a few solid laughs as well.
I watched Trollhunter on Netflix and it's probably the best film out of the bunch I've mentioned. Surprisingly good CG for a low budget film but (for the most part) kept it subtle enough to avoid distracting from the tension. Some people are put off by subtitles but miss this at your peril.
