Did anyone see this thing? I caught some trailers at some point and then I guess it flopped and was gone before I even knew it was in theatres.

I just got back from seeing it. There were aspects of the movie that I enjoyed and other aspects of it that I did not enjoy. Overall I feel like this could be a really great movie in a Director's Cut to clean things up a little bit more, but it isn't mind blowing as-is.

Did enjoy:
  • Awesome worldbuilding. You can tell that this universe, with its many locations and alien races has been developed over a long period of time in the comics. This was my favorite thing about the movie.
  • Cool and unique chase scenes (especially the one that takes place in the "big market" area)
  • Several of the cross-scene cuts were smartly done
  • Movie raises interesting questions about the role of the human race in an intergalactic society
  • Most of all of the races and cultures in this movie were very peaceful and one even lives in a utopia. This is something that I don't tend to see in too many sci-fi movies lately.

Did not enjoy:
  • Various characters' acting was really uneven throughout the movie
  • Some of the CG (and there was quite a lot of it) looked kinda low-quality compared to the rest of the movie (this is likely due to different CG studios working on different scenes; as evidenced by the credits they worked with several different CG studios to make this movie).
  • Over explanation of certain things for dumb audiences. I don't like it when movies feel like they are talking down to me.
  • Many of the shorter scenes didn't feel very "real" or "lived in", they just felt like CG nonsense. I think that a big part of this is because the camera cuts to them without establishing shots and the camera leaves the area just as quickly before anything unique or interesting can happen.

I see a video on this about why it flopped and some of the shots looked absolutely stunning but then it would switch over to like a little alien bug thing and it looked like pixar so maybe thats what the guy above is talking about.

I dunno the first time i heard about it was on here and then the video explaining why it flopped (pretty much no one knew it existed and or of the source material).

After someone on /vg/ mentioned it I decided to watch A Better Tomorrow, considering the only John Woo movie I've seen is The Killer it feels like a missing part of my education, and while I'm at it why not go on a spree. Anyone got any good recs for hard boiled Asian crime?

While I'm here I'll throw down my own for everyone, City of Violence. It's a Korean mafia/revenge story with some ridiculous 100-men brawls, no spoilers but the final fight scene takes a solid 20 minutes into itself, and they're not afraid to beat the shit out of their heroes, they just keep getting back up.

A Touch of Sin was really fucking good too. It's an anthology inspired by 4 real life violent/crime events in China. I think the Chinese government banned it because they thought it was too brutal and subversive.

It's probably best that he doesn't see the link between sex and violence anyway. People say it's hypocrisy, but sex and violence are different things, and combining the two in the same context is just...it can go dark in so many ways in a child's mind. I remember being a kid.

This shit was dope. The animation is good, the voice acting is excellent, and Trevor Belmont is a perfect sarcastic badass action hero cliche. I'm really looking forward to S2. If it was written as a film trilogy, and each season keeps the quality up and covers one film in about 4 episodes, this should be just short and sweet enough to be the best game to screen adaptation ever.

Finally got around to watchin' this earlier, it was pretty good. Wouldn't say it's outright great or anything, but it's written pretty well and the hand drawn animation can be gorgeous.

It's obvious that whatever animation team is doing this needs to work on keeping characters on model though, there are shots of Trevor throughout this where his face straight up deforms and he looks like a different character. That's usually a pretty common problem within the first season of any animated series though, so I give it a pass.

I've been a big fan of these games for a long, long time and what made this really fun to watch was just how this connected to those. It does a great job of not only incorporating scenery and moments from the games you'd expect, but it gets down the history of the Belmonts, their conflict with the church, etc. It's a really faithful adaptation and that's one of the biggest reasons I enjoyed it.

As mentioned it's written pretty well, but I have to say I predicted the plot revelation that comes in the last episode from a mile away. But the dialog is good, it does a good job of making Trevor a legitimately interesting character, and Dracula's set up here is handled really well. Can't wait to see more of him, especially.

Overall, would recommend. I hope season 2 is even better and brings up the pacing by a bit though. This was only 4 episodes long but watching through it honestly felt a little longer than that. Particularly from the second episode on. But I do like the story that's being told here and I'd be more than happy to see more of it.

What's everyone's thoughts on this? I'm not a massive fan of James Franco and Seth Rogen but "The Room" is every bit as funny as it gets made out to be and I think that the potential is definitely there to make it into a really funny mock-movie. They will almost have to try to fuck it up but it's entirely possible that's exactly what might happen.

The trailer itself doesn't give that much away or look that amazing.

I watched The Room again the other night with my sister who'd never seen it. The entire rooftop scene, from the moment Johnny walks through the door and says that line, is so hilariously awkward and unnatural we were literally in hysterics and had to hit pause so we could stop laughing because it was becoming painful.

It's ok if you don't get it, but for a lot of people The Room is very enjoyable and therefore evidently has some redeeming qualities.

Archer Dreamland revolves around the international spy turned hardboiled private eye Sterling Archer and his quest to find his partner’s killer in 1947 Los Angeles. The case proves to be more difficult than expected after Archer quickly gets mixed up in a deadly game of tug of war between Los Angeles' most powerful crime bosses. Every clue leads Archer further away from his goal and deeper into a mystery involving kidnapping, prostitution and drug addiction.

The season premieres tonight at 10pm EDT on FXX

I only find myself judging it when it tries to take itself seriously. which it has always sucked at. Otherwise my reaction tends to be "meh, not as funny as season 1 but I don't mind watching it when a new one is out". It isn't complete shit or anything. Kinda like late sealab. frisky dingo actually had a point where it turned to outright shit, really suddenly too it wasn't a gradual slip in quality. specifically that post-series spinoff about awesome x's henchman. god that sucked. I'm glad it was aborted before it got past two episodes. it had nothing that made the henchman bits good in the main show.

When the first few seasons were out, I thought this show could do no wrong and I could happily watch these characters do and say anything.
But actually, in hindsight, it was much better when it was witty, and not /just/ running jokes, long pauses, and "I mean"s, with a new costume set slapped on every season like that fixes it. Literally this latest season could have reused hours of dialogue from the previous season and I wouldn't have noticed (did it?)
>>385607 is right too, it tries to take itself seriously and it can't. Like I give a shit about who had a baby with who, like I give a shit about how well-choreographed the fight scenes are. I came here to watch sour people fuck each other over and zing each other

Do you trust critics, if so why? if not, why not?

Historically critics have been wrong about a lot of movies, full metal jacket and it's a wonderful life come instantly to mind.

That said if I'm not totally gung ho about a movie I'll probably use the Rotten Tomatoes score to decide if I'm going or not.

I also thinks it's idiotic to think critics hate movies or are on the take (movie studios will and have just made up reviews). It's important to remember they see a lot of movies, so cliches and trends are more likely to grind on them than the average movie goer. There's a big push from critics right now to bring back the 90 minute movie, and I don't entirely disagree, but if you're a Joe blow without AC and it's summer time, the Hobbit trilogy might be far more tolerable.

Is there a site that gives individual ratings? Like, how's the directing from 1 to 10, the writing, etc.

no, only skim metacritic to see if something has an extremely low average rating to reaffirm

sometimes I'll search out scathin reviews for something i saw and hated to have my views about a movie reaffirmed, but I stopped listening to or reading movie reviews (even 'smart' ones) years ago. complete waste of time.
