I saw "Shaun of the Dead", a kind off parody on George A. Romero's dead series, and I recommend you to see it.

Transformers is pretty awesome if you're looking for action. I, personally, loved it.

Rofl, Silent Hill is crap, except for the Pyramid Head scene and the barbed wire tentacle thing at the end.

Couldn't find another thread suited for this so just gonna bump this one.

I recently watched Spectre. (My favourite trailer for it. I like the slow buildup and mystery.) It had great visuals and action. The long tracking opening shot was awesome. Unfortunately they didn't utilize Christoph Waltz fully as the villain, and sometimes the movie felt drawn out. Not quite as good as Skyfall, but still an entertaining Bond movie.

7/10

Theme song comparison: SKYFALL | SPECTRE

Adele's feels more memorable and entertaining, while Sam's feels more emotional, but I think that was the point since they said it would be a love song.

I'd rate spectre around 6/10. Still I think Skyfall was a better movie with a better soundtrack.

Gah!  Finally someone who doesnt think Spectre was that good!  I mean, Christoph Waltz looked like he was falling asleep during his role.  My god.  I've never seen such an underwhelming part written for such an amazing actor.  As for the movie, the first third of the film was fucking brilliant.  Dialogue, cinematography, everything was great.  Then the second and third act DIED.  Its like they got bored and wrote the remaining 2/3 of the movie in half the time it took for the first act.  That action sequence with the plane in the snow was so one dimensional.  Just felt like a boring and lazy attempt at something thrilling.  Wanted so much more in a Bond movie and got this.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!!!!

Holy cow. I think I am feeling similar to how people felt when they first saw the original Star Wars back in 1977. So many questions that needs answering. I am feeling so incomplete now :(

Great visuals, cinematography, acting, sound effects and more. I can't make up my mind of what rating I should give it, but definitely 8-9/10. I will have to see it again to confirm.

I don't expect it to win Oscars for all of its nominations but I want it to win one at least. Tough competition from Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant and The Martian though. Mad Max deserves a few Oscars too.

CONTINUING ON STAR WARS, SPOILERS AHEAD IN CASE THAT'S STILL RELEVANT

I was partly very annoyed with Force Awakens. It was well executed, so yes, they can definitely make a good Star Wars movie. But why did it have to be a repeat of Episode IV? I can understand going for thematic similarities but this was a bit too much. 

And were they dreading politics so much that they couldn't be assed to tell First Order's story properly? After the movie I had to go check its wiki to see what's what. They could've made it interesting, now the Order came out a hollow copy of the Empire. Even more so now that the Order essentially became the Empire since they blew up their biggest enemy. Oh great. 
And Starkiller base was just a huge joke. Draining a star? It's one of those cases where thinking bigger is better just comes back to bite you in the ass. Making the Order seem like a credible threat could've been done with a lot more class. 

Kylo was great until the mask came off and the character went full emo. Again, too much. However, there's a chance for redemption here: the second movie can make Kylo graduate from his teenager shell and become a more credible baddie. 

That's the thing though, the second movie has a lot of baggage already. The script has to make sense of Rey's super powers, explain why Luke left his own jedi mess behind, write Snoke into an interesting character, avoid making the Order vs. Resistance a copy of the Empire vs. Rebels, come up with good stories for Poe and Finn... 
It's going to be tough. But I remain hopeful and I really look forward to getting more Star Wars. 

I'd give the movie 7/10 and the more I think about it the less points I want to give. The annoyances were just that glaring. But right after the movie I felt more positive towards it, I mostly liked the characters (though Kylo aside they didn't seem to try much on the Order's side), use of Han Solo was great, there was a great physicality to the action and, basically, I just like Star Wars. 

In any case I feel like this was a weird reset and the next movie will be the actual beginning of the new Star Wars story.
