Wow! The Avengers was quite good! 

9/10


That is what I like to hear!

 

Best Moments for me:

 

Hulk Smash Thor

Thor not able to just take out everything himself since he is a demi god

Iron Man was great, and he showed at the end that he does not just care about himself

Captain America played his role perfectly, and his shield was great!

Eagle Eye was a Guy that I had never heard of, but I thought he was a pretty cool character as well, even though I do not like that actor that much yet.

 

Favorite moments ninplup?

Whenever BlackWidow interigated someone but they didn't notice and she said, "Thank You" and they had a, "WTF?!?!" face.

When Hulk smashed Loki.

 The IronMan/Thor fight scene.

The Battle in NYC.

This will be a long one.

 

I picked up on VHS:

The Tommyknockers ( stephen King)

A few episodes of the last Ghostbusters cartoon to be on VHS. The Real Ghostbusters I think it what it is.

Deathstalker: The Last Great Warrior. (The only known actor in this 80's fantasy movie is a Playboy Playmate from back then named Barbie Benton)

 

 

Brannigan

Starring John Wayne and Richard Attenborough.

 

It was a meh movie most of the way through. Wayne plays the same character that he always does, and still gets away with it mostly because he is a bad ass. Except he trades in the Cowboy hat for a Chicago cop suit ( Dirty Harry was taking away his business?). After beating on a few people he goes to England where he becomes partners with Mr. Attenborough, who is a Scotland Yard detective, as they try to find a kidnap victim.

I have finally discovered where the writers for Speed got the idea to cut a hole in the bottom of the garbage can so the bad guy could steal the money. Because it happens in this movie about 20 years prior. Other than a random funny bar fight scene I did not really enjoy this movie that much at all. Sorry John waynes ghost....

6/10....next Wayne movie for me will be The War Wagon, possibly tonight.

 

 

 

 

John Carter (of Mars)

Starring guy from Battleship and bad guy from original Sherlock Holmes

 

This movie did not give me the edge of my seat excitement that The Avengers and Battleship gave me this year, but I really enjoyed the story and the special effects worked for it. I do not know what I was expecting from the Trailers for this movie, but it was not what I watched.

John Carter is a old West cowboy/miner from Virginia ( running joke later on) who stumbles on a cave of gold. He also stumbles on a god like alien that he shoots and fatally injures with a gun shot. With in a minute he wakes up still in the desert, except this is a desert of Mars. After he learns to walk on Mars ( his bones are not as dense as the others there so he can almost fly) some green aliens take him in as a baby. He learns to talk via magic alien milk. Within five minutes of learning to talk he become the green aliens leader after destroying some Star Wars like ships. Five minutes after that he is on the run from the green martians because they want to kill him. Taggin along is a Princess of a Martian city named helium and his green alien mother...oh and a super fast slobbery dog. You can tell that this movie was based off an old book. City names and ideas in the movie are what hint at this being based off some old Sci fi story.

The Martian girl is the Princess of helium. She wants John to take his super jumping skills and help her win some war that is going on , that was started by the same god like aliens that sent him there. John just wants to find his way home so he can spend the gold he found in the Cave of Wonders. Eventually he stops being stubborn and goes into Helium to try and save the day after multiple pretty cool scenes. I will not say much more incase I persuade some of you to watch this movie.

The end and beginning has to do with the child star of the movie series Spy Kids trying to act. Luckily the director of this movie was not the same idiot who directed Mirror, Mirror. More on that dastardly horrendous movie later.

I will give this movie an 8/10. The Special Effects are nothing too great, but the story/adventure will easily get your through the movie. I like this actor who I do not care to look ups name. I could see him going far in the industry if he can stop making box office bombs.

 

 

 

Mirror, Mirror

 

Maybe it is because I have seen so many amazing movies this year, but this movie was absolute trash!

I will rate it right now so that you do not forget it. 2/10

That may seem harsh, and some may have enjoyed it. The elderly enjoyed it! There were three sitting next to me and they thought it was a riot. No one else clapped at the end other than them.

Snow white is the same Snow White that we met like 100 years ago in the Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Except this time the dwarves are theifs, two of them are from an American Television show called Pit Boss ( about little people who save pit bulls), and they are mostly horrible in this movie. I did however enjoy the littler person who stars on the show Seinfeld and in the movie Employee of the Month.

Snow white and the Seven moronic elves basically become inept Robin Hood types in this movie. Stealing from the Queen to feed the over taxed citizens of snoreville. Meanwhile, you have the Prince ( who is turned into a dog, that pulls off the best performance of the movie), two Queens played by Horse mouth...errr I mean Julie Roberts ( do we really need two Julia Roberts in one movie?), and the always annoying Nathan Lane trying to stop this band of rebels. Funny story, later on in the movie Lane is turned into ....sorry...lulz...:3....a cockroach, sadly his performance is likened more to a cock than a cock roach.

When these three idiots fail to murder Snow white, the Queen unleashes her secret weapon. Snow Whites father was turned into a beast before the movie started and is sent to kill the Princess, the dreadful Dwarves, and the turn-coat Dog Prince. The dragon beast also fails, and the princess sets her father free.

 

Now here is the Fraging shocker! Sean Bean is the king....

How horrible for such a great actors career to be tricked into this movie. They had to have filmed his scenes in the beginning, because he would have walked off the set if he had seen what was going to unfold on the set of this thing.

 

All in all it was uneventful, unoriginal, pile of dog meat.

 

2/10



Anyone watch the movie "In Time" with the Batman boys, Timberlake, and the eldest brother from Tool Time?

It was a decent, familiar sort of movie, kind of like I have seen it before. Justin Timberlake did well as an action star, but I am still on the fence with that.

Saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shawdows. Liked it more than the first one.

What the heck is a VHS?!

^ It is a plastic rectangle that plays movies in a Prehistoric Machine called a VCR. I am about to sell my 2,000 VHs Ithink. I have finally gotten over owning movies. Maybe I will keep my Van Damme collection though. One time I tried selling it for 2,000 dollars! Lol.

 

I have a few articles today! Do not think that I watched any movies yesterday for a change.

 

 

Snow White and the Huntsman: Review Roundup—Is It the Fairest Summer Movie of Them All?
Kristen Stewart, Snow White and the Huntsman, SWATH Universal Pictures

Just one more day before the highly anticipated Snow White and the Huntsman—starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth—hits theaters!

But before you run out and drop your hard-earned money at the box office, check out what some of the top critics are saying about the flick.

Oh, who are we kidding? Most of you are probably already in line.

Well, in case you're wondering, read on...

MORE: Kristen Stewart—I'm Ready for a Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel!

  • "A bold rethinking of a familiar old story and striking design elements are undercut by a draggy mid-section and undeveloped characters," writes The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy. "This is a film of moments, of arresting visuals, marked seriousness, sometimes surprising imagination...It's also a film in which you can't help but behold and compare the contrasting beauty of two of the most exceptional looking women on the screen today, Stewart and Theron."
  • "Snow White and the Huntsman reinvents the legendary story in a film of astonishing beauty and imagination," notes Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times. "It falters in storytelling, because Snow White must be entirely good, the Queen must be entirely bad, and there's no room for nuance. The end is therefore predetermined. But, oh, what a ride."
  • "The best thing in the movie by far is Charlize Theron's performance," raves Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman, adding that Stewart "is just wary and delicate enough of a presence to play 'purity' without becoming a pain."

MORE: Snow White and the Huntsman First Look—Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron Spill Fairy-Tale Secrets!

  • "Feels like it was made from the pieces of every fantasy-action movie ever made," states Ty Burr of the Boston Globe, but quickly pointing out "that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Parts of the film...are very nearly wonderful. Others are of a surpassing silliness."
  • "Astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking in its brutal imagery, Snow White and the Huntsman is thrilling and frightening in equal measure, yet as bereft of satisfying substance as a poisoned apple," offers Christy Lemire of the Associated Press.
  • "There's plenty of ambition and imagination on display from the first seconds of Snow White and the Huntsman, along with enthusiasm for the material that can't be faked and which makes up for at least some of the film's missteps," writes Salon.com's Andrew O'Hehir. "I resisted this derivative mishmash of classic fairytale and modern epic fantasy for as long as I could, but ultimately it swept me up into its geeky but manly embrace and carried me away on a white charger."

So are you now having second thoughts about seeing it, or more excited than ever? Sound off in the comments!

Eddie Murphy Dead?! Actor Alive and Well After Yet Another Internet Murder
Eddie Murphy Jim Spellman/WireImage.com

Call it death by a thousand Web rumors.

For the third time in as many months, word spread like wildfire on social media sites and Twitter that Eddie Murphy met a tragic end, having been killed in a snowboarding accident in Zermatt, Switzerland.

But as E! News can confirm., such reports are complete B.S.

MORE: Hoaxing 101: How to Fake a Celebrity Death

As E! News previously investigated, they are the product of pranksters at the Global Associated News, a macabre site behind a rash of similar hoaxes—whether it was falling off a cliff in New Zealand (the purported fate of poor Jeff Goldbum) or the ill-timed mishaps in the Swiss and Austrian Alps that supposedly took the lives of Adam Sandler, Charlie Sheen, Ryan Gosling and, yes, the Trading Places star on two prior occasions (see here and here).

Alas, the only death Murphy's had to deal with these days was the awful demise of his latest comedy, A Thousand Words, at the box office, which has grossed a paltry $18 million since hitting theaters in March.

Thankfully, the funnyman is doing just fine.

I thought it was OK, but I was bored at times indeed. I almost fell asleep! But that is because I was tired as fuck

What films do you like Nin Pie? I know you like Toy Story 3 from the highest grossing film thread.

Toy Story 3 - win, Toy Story 2, Up - win, My Neighbour Totoro - win, Spirited Away - EPIC win, Pokemon Movies - sad face , Finding Nemo - epic win. Some others. I really like Pixar and Ghibli Movies.

No sometimes a sequel is appropriate and sometimes its just too much. The series is complete and it got better with every part now its time to move on.

 

btw. You should watch 300, you would never prefer knights over Spartans if you have watched that movie.

I would think a TS4 would be good.

One where they go on a trip and the little girl brings them with her (To Hawaii or something) and then she loses them and they have to traverse through a new-found-land. That would be good!

Sounds like Madagascar to me lol

The movie just seemed so... slow. And for some reason I thought the characters were really annoying.
