I'm with you, Frank. We went to see it in IMAX and, while the visuals were lovely, I found the plot derivative and cliched. I'd love to visit the area at Walt Disney World, though. The ride is quite nice from video I've seen. Better than the movie.
FInally someone agrees, I forgot it existed until my biology teacher referenced it and then said nobody probably got the reference because it was “too old of a movie for us to know” lol it’s not even 20 years old yet and everyone on the planet has seen it. It’s just so stupid with terrible cgi, all it does is try to be “deep” and fails miserably at it.The Matrix. I liked it for the action scenes, thought it was utterly stupid for...whatever "philosophy" is was attempting. Fell asleep in the cinema during both sequels and woke up when people were kicking my feet on their way out.
I'm with you there. Avatar I saw because it was released during the year that 3D became available in our local cinemas. I watched the 3D version, enjoyed the graphics, left the cinema and never thought about this film again. I can't believe James Cameron is developing sequels to this. 3D isn't really a "thing" anymore, and people realise now that put apart from the special effects, this is a really just a cliche-fest.
Couldn't disagree more. Without turning this into a Hot Topic discussion, if you put on the glasses you will see who's truly running the country today."They Live", as much as I like Carpenter films, this is one of his "classics" that doesn't deserve to be remembered, it's bo-oooring. The one good thing out of it is the bubblegum line.
That movie is squaresville, man!Dirty Dancing. Go ahead and give it up to the guy who has a bad reputation for sleeping around because deep down he's really just looking to fall in love. Believe that and I have a bridge into Brooklyn to sell you.
Just re-watched that the other day. Still stands up. Especially if you went to HS in the 80s (as I did). It captures the cliched cliques and social attitudes perfectly. The reason Anthony Michael Hall's character is in detention foreshadows some later real world tragic events eerily....nope, you're not alone....it was just dum with a capital "duh".....
