  1. I want to talk about the new Star Wars but most of the people I know haven't seen it. So, if there is anyone that has seen it message me because i just got back from seeing it and I want to have discussions about it, theories, what you liked/ disliked about it, what you hope to see in the next episode, etc. So, let's get talking!
  2. On May 24th, 2007, “Spider-Man 3” premiered in North America... Tears were shed, dreams were shattered, and countless lives were lost. It remains as a dark, black stain on not only the film industry, not only the comic book industry… but American history itself… Okay, fine, maybe it wasn’t that bad, but seriously, what the f*ck?! Hello, boys and girls, it’s time once again to gather around the campfire and listen to Ol’ Sensei complain about superhero movies. A while back, I reviewed the widely hated “Fant4stic” on a whim, and in that review, I lambasted it for being a product aimed for a different time, a time where superhero movies were either “giant broodfests” or “asinine shitfests”… “Spider-Man 3” manages to fill the quota for both. So if the first film was decent, the second one was slightly worse, and now this film, the third and final installment, is mostly known as a steaming pile of doo-doo, where did it all go wrong? What were the elements that took an already waning franchise and drove it right into the ground? Well, let’s put on our symboite suits and find out. And no, there won’t be a spoiler tab because it doesn’t deserve one... okay, the first part will because it's actually pretty long. But the rest won't. Got all that? … Neither do I. What the hell is the plot of this movie?! And that, my friends, is problem number one: there is too much on going in this film, and you know, it wouldn’t be as much as a problem if it was better paced, but unfortunately, it drags on instead. There are scenes that don’t need to be shown, things we don’t need to know. Hell, the infamous sequence/montage of Peter dancing around and acting like a jerkass could have been skipped entirely and we would still know that he’s a jerkass. Not to mention the fact that we have not one, not two, but three motherf*cking main villains: Harry, Sandman, and Venom. None of them are even enjoyable either, but I’ll get to that. Now, as for Peter Parker and his personality… holy crap. When I said we know that he turns into a jerkass when the symbiote attaches, we know. Even before that, he shows shades of his now slightly-assholeish nature that he developed in the last film, but oh-ho, thanks to the suit, it just gets turned up to eleven. Again, for those of who don’t know, there is an entire sequence in the movie where Peter dances around, pointin’ his fingers, showing off to women… it-it’s just the dumbest thing. It’s not helped by the dance sequence in the nightclub, which looks like it might as well be from a damn musical. Not even the actual Spider-Man musical would have this shit. It gets worse with his relationship with Mary Jane. Their entire arc together might as well be the plot of a soap opera. Not helped by Kirsten Dunst’s still wooden acting and Toby MacGuire’s over excessive crying bits, something that has always been a weakness in his portrayal of Peter. In fact, his entire format for Peter is just not even in the ballpark at this point. He doesn’t feel like the admirable nerd he started out as, he just feels like a huge drama-obsessed prick. The drama over the romance of Peter and Mary Jane is just bad overall. It’s your classic case of literally “making up” drama for characters, who if handled properly, wouldn’t even go through more than half of the crap we see them endure. Oh yeah, and they drag Gwen Stacy into it… because… this is basically her entire role in the movie. And it only lasts, like, a couple of minutes… and other than that, she’s pretty much a non-entity… can’t even get the side love-interest right. Not that she should even be a side love-interest, but whatever. James Franco’s Harry Osborn, meanwhile, just loses all dignity. Not only is this stupid and obvious amnesia plot used for him, but also when he comes too, he starts acting exactly like a villain from a soap opera. Give him a mustache to twiddle and it’ll all make sense. His motivations in general are pretty crap, but again, we’ll get to that. As far as the “New Goblin” goes… it-it’s just a low rent version of Green Goblin. Seriously, it’s like a poorly made, not-even-close cosplay of the Goblin Suit. There is literally nothing to comment on further. Oh yeah, and in that plot, there’s also a gratuitous scene where Harry and Mary Jane cook food together and dance to “The Twist”. What is this film’s obsession with dance sequences? What, did one of the screenwriters watch “Footlose” before writing the script? Oh boy, and then there’s Sandman… just like Doctor Octopus in the last film, Sandman is made to be a sympathetic character, an escaped convict who only wants to pay for an operation for his daughter and blah blah blah, gag me. Look, I’m not saying a villain can’t be complex, but come on, The Sandman is just a thug, plain and simple. He’s not supposed to be sympathetic and it’s clear that this element was forced in just as much as the elements that were supposed to make Doc Ock sympathetic were forced in as well. It’s even worse when the story tries to shoe-horn a connection between him and Peter by making him the real murderer of Uncle Ben… only to bullshit some more contrived sympathy but saying “oh no, it was a just an accident, I’m not really a bad guy, I just make a mistake and-” No. Noooo. You can’t do that. The connection itself is so f*cking obvious that it’s insulting, and seriously, he’s clearly a bad guy. Everything he does in the film is bad. The background is supposed to be a crutch to hold up his motivations because the film fails to show him as sympathetic in any other way. Now, for the most part, the symbiote concept is actually handled very decently… well, except for how it gets to Earth, as that’s just a total ass-pull. But otherwise, how it connects with Peter and then later Eddie Brock is okay. It does what it needs to. Peter under the influence of the symbiote while agonizing still makes some sense in context, and Brock… let’s talk about Brock himself first. Brock is… a placeholder, a glorified plot point, and without that aspect, he would be as much as a non-entity as Gwen Stacy is. He’s introduced as a one-dimensional douchebag, not even better while competing with Peter’s douchebagginess, and his only motivation is that he gets fired from his job at the Daily Bugle. Now, yes, this is done out of spite by Peter and he didn’t really deserve the harshness of his treatment, but uh… you know how I mentioned he was at the church? Yeah, well, before Peter gets rid of the symbiote we see Brock praying in the church and… seriously… he prays to God and asks him… to kill Peter Parker… just, straight up, no exaggeration. Eddie Brock, in a church, prays to God, and asks Him to kill Peter… do I even have to explain how stupid and wrong this is? Do I have explain how this flimsy-ass antagonist, regardless of past transgressions, can have the damn audacity to ask a higher entity to kill one of his fellow man, just because he got him fired from a newspaper job? My goodness, man, it’s not like he burned down your house and drowned your mom. Chill out! As for how he is as Venom… well… the design is too easy of a target to pick on, so I’ll just reconfirm that it sucks and is not faithful to anything remotely similar to the source material and move on. Everything else: well for one, he has his face showing constantly, and we barely get to see the “Venom” face at all in the film, which is just annoying. Personality wise… again, it just highlights the pure stupidity of his motivation and his overall character. He’s just a prick that got screwed over by another prick, but is being unjustifiably mad about it. Oh, and to make matters worse, I guess he actually falls in love with the suit or something. Well geez, Brock, if you love you suit so much, why don’t you sacrifice yourself for it by taking a pumpkin bomb to the-oh wait. One last bit, and this really gets my goat: the reason why Harry changes his mind about helping Peter fight Venom and Sandman. You see, after their meeting, Harry’s butler goes to Harry and tells him that Norman Osborn died because his glider struck him, not because Spider-Man killed him. This pretty much allows Harry to forgive Peter entirely… once again… do I have to explain this mediocrity? Do I have to point out that a) literally none of Peter’s previous actions, especially that harsh fight scene, even matter any more and b) his entire role in the movie could have been changed if the damn butler told him this sooner? Why did he keep it a secret all this time? Why was there all this now-unnecessary strain on the relationships between not just Peter and Harry but Mary Jane as well when the butler could have just flat-out told the truth? Didn’t he care that his supposed friend Harry was deeply affected by the death of Norman and was spirally down a dark path? I’ll tell you the answer: no. Because if he did, we wouldn’t have a plot. Plain and simple. Okay, now I must ask the burning question: are they any good parts of this film? Uh… kinda? Production is still pretty solid… well, except when CGI is over-used to animate a chase/fight sequence between Peter and Harry. But other than that, still pretty good. The actors from previous films, sans some obvious exceptions, are back and do their roles fine, and I even enjoyed the performance of newcomer Thomas Haden Church as Sandman sans his shitty material. But, that’s pretty much it. Overall, this is just a wash of a movie. Sam Raimi’s previous use of cheese is completely lost for a depressing tale of love, heartbreak, tragedy, and dance numbers. And, look, I get it: the symbiote storyline is very personal to Peter’s character, it’s a very mature story that doesn’t provide a lot of room for comedy… but there is a difference between telling a mature story and telling an uncomfortable drama-fest. But even then, there is still comedy in this movie too, most of it being unnecessary and just as cheesy, so seriously, what the f*ck? It’s like the relationship between Peter and the suit: you have Peter, i.e. the cheesiness of the last two films and the suit, i.e. the drama of the new film, colliding with each other in a back-and-forth struggle to see what will dominate the tone of the film. What follows is a complete mess of subplots that crowd into each other and don’t flow well both together or even in their own right. I don’t even know if I would want the cheese back considering my previous distaste for it, but then again, I don’t know if I would want the entire movie to have even more drama either. Oh no… I, myself, the viewer, have become conflicted with the tone of the movie which is also conflicted with itself which is also an account of the duality of Peter Parker’s good and dark sides as a person and as the persona Spider-Man… the parallels… this film just got so much deeper… and maybe, just maybe, this was the true intention of Sam Raimi… maybe all this time I’ve just been too harsh on his vision for the series-- *Remembers how he wanted to not only finally debut The Lizard way too late but also make Felicia Hardy turn into “The Vultress” for a fourth film* … or maybe he should have just stopped after the first film. Eh, seems legit. “Spider-Man 3” gets a 3 out of 10, btw, and finally, I have rid myself of all the re-reviews... well except for "Will of Fire" but honestly, my thoughts haven't changed much since then so eh, I'll wait a little longer. Either way, my next review is definitely going to be something new. What it will be, well, you'll just have to find out. See you then!
  3. Source: http://tribune.com.pk/story/1013235/man-lands-in-icu-for-spoiling-star-wars-at-a-us-theatre/ Don't mess with Star Wars fans. We take these things very seriously.
  4. Hey there everyone, how's it going!? So then, as we all know, Star Wars is going to expand into its own Cinematic Universe, which will be dishing out Anthology films while we wait for the next numbered entries in the series! One such Anthology film will focus on Han Solo in his early years, and after seeing this gentleman named Jamie Costa doing a mock audition of him, I really, really think he'd make a perfect young Han Solo! We need Disney to look at this guy!!! X_X https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8eYA0tde0g JAMIE COSTA FOR YOUNG HAN SOLO!!! WHO'S WITH ME!?
  5. Yo guys! I haven't made a theory topic in FOREVER so I thought its high time I started a new one. Now, be warned. This thread is for ppl who have ALREADY seen The Force Awakens as this thread will contain spoilers. So for those who have yet to see it-shew! Now, here's my theory...........Rey is Luke's daughter. Now when you stop to think about this, it actually becomes quite obvious. Lets start from Rey's beninngs. In the movie, we are never shown what her parents look like. All we see of them is a giant carrier craft flying away from Jakku, leaving Rey alone as a very young child. We are never told why her parents left her, only that they went away. Skip way ahead in the movie to when Rey and company visit the pub on Takodana. Rey finds Luke's old lightsaber, hidden away. As soon as she touches it, she immediately sees visions of the her past and the future. Later, the barkeeper, Maz Kanata tells her that the lightsaber and the Force call to her. I believe its not for nothing that Rey had that strange encounter with Luke's weapon. It seemed to have awakened Rey's ability to use the Force, as seen later in the movie. If Rey really is Luke's daughter, this would make sense. The Force would be reacting to the Skywalker bloodline through direct contact from the lightsaber. Later in the film, we see Rey display some impressive mind controlling skills as soon as she opens her own mind to the power of the Force. This certainly is very impressive since she only just discovered what the Force even is and the fact that she is quite "old" to be learning the ways of the Force. Sound familiar? Also, it should be noted that Rey and Kylo Ren appear to be very close in age. At the very least, 5 years apart. Why would that be significant? Lets think about this; Luke, Solo and Leia are all around the same age or near it. If they had children close together, then their kids would also be similar in age. Lastly, remember the second teaser trailer for the film? This was never used in the finished movie, but in that trailer, you hear a voice over of Luke's voice. He's talking to someone. He says this:" The Force is strong in my family. My father has it, I have it, my sister has it. You have that power too." Why that was even put into the trailer and not the finished movie, I don't know. But this, out of all the others, is in my opinion, the most obvious clue. Just who is Luke talking to? There is no one else in the movie that Luke might be talking to about this. Unless it was Kylo Ren himself, since he went to train with Luke before turned to the Darkside, and Kylo is Luke's nephew. But Kylo and Rey are the only two possible ppl that Luke could be talking to. I would like to believe it is Rey. We have yet to see if this will be addressed, either in deleted scenes or in the next movie. So, let the speculations continue, and may the Force be with you!
  6. So, while I was watching my daily dose of Youtube, I have a habit of checking the comment section while video loads. Suddenly, people start posting spoilers about Star Wars on many videos I watched, and I think some of them may be legit. I have not yet watched the movie, but I am hoping that said spoiler was just a joke. I hope that some of you guys don't fall to this too, so stay away from social media until you have seen it. I am seeing the movie tomorrow, but be cautious everybody!
  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCSQd_aVKlA Well, I'd personally be hard pressed to call The Emperor a "good guy", that's for sure...
  8. The second trailer for the Sci-Fi, Action, Comedy move by Rooster Teeth, Lazer Team just released today and if you want to go see the movie in your home theater or somewhere close to you you can go to the website below and see if you can get tickets if not don't worry you can host your own showing as well it's all explained here https://www.lazerteamthemovie.com/
  9. I have not gotten into the series....I think I once watched a movie when I was a kid but I was too young to understand at the time and had no idea what was going on. I hear there are a bunch of films out there and since I have my academic break coming up so I thought 'Why not marathon the films?' Can some of you recommend me the order of sequence that I should watch the films in in order for the plot to make sense to me? The only things I associate with the series are light sabers, a dude in black with a mask called Darth Vader, a robot thingy called R2D2 and some green-wise-guy called Yoda? Thanks
  10. So apparently there is a correct order to introduce someone to the Star Wars movies. See here. So what do you guys think? I personally don't see how this guy found Episode I boring when I was falling asleep during II as an adult (V doesn't count because I was four). I'm glad I was born in the 90's and didn't have to deal with this. My parents just sat me down with IV, V and VI because that was the only order there was.
  11. I don't know if anyone is aware of this, but Marvel had their own version of D23 a while back and they showed this there. Someone managed to record this during the event.
  12. Apparently, this is the schedule for D23’s Disney Animation release calendar… Walt Disney Animation Studios: Zootopia - March 04, 2016 Moana - November 23, 2016 Gigantic - March 09, 2018 Frozen 2 - TBC Wreck-It Ralph 2 - TBC PIXAR: The Good Dinosaur - November 25, 2015 Finding Dory - June 17, 2016 Toy Story 4 - May 16th, 2017 Coco - November 22, 2017 The Incredibles 2 - June 15, 2018 Cars 3 - 2019 Disneytoon Studios: Untitled Magic and Monsters - 2017 Untitled Magic and Monsters 2 - 2019 Tinker Bell and the Unknown Season - 2020 Home Releases: Aladdin: Diamond Edition - October 06, 2015 Pinocchio: Diamond Edition - Spring 2016 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Ultra Collection - Fall 2016
  13. "You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticized," he told Vanity Fair when asked why he left the series. "And it’s not much fun. You can’t experiment." More here.
  14. Do you recall the Chronicles of Narnia films? Remember when they released the third one Voyage of the Dawn Treader? Well now, here is the fourth film: The Silver Chair.
  15. What the title says. What is wrong with being different from the book? I get that people can be disappointed, but is it not "dull" to be basically seeing the exact same thing you just "saw" in your head? I mean, although MOST liked the first Narnia, I know quite a few people (and YES they DID read the book), that did NOt like it! As well, Prince Caspian did not do as well. I am aware that that was partly because of Iron Man 1 and Indiana Jones taking away audience, and PC being different from the book and too dark and violent, but still…. I don't get it? As well can u specifically tell me: What do you like/don't like the movies of Lemony snciket Eragon Both PErcy jackson movies AND BE SPECIFIC, NO saying "they sucked" or anything like that or even that they were too unloyal to the book. Think outside of that as a stand alone movie(s)
  16. GAWD this movie sucked, Honest trailers is awesome thou. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkFEyZL9f_M
  17. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb6emOPFbIg Here are the directors for Zootopia/Zootropolis. They've really put a lot of effort and intricacy of the movie and why they've been so successful with their movies as of late!
