Agreed, I really enjoyed the first one (and had no idea what it was when I watched it). I anxiously awaited the second one and wow it was bad. I will watch the third though, because...I watched The Maze Runner and its sequel a few days ago.
I know it's meant for teenage boys but I really enjoyed the first one. It kept me guessing about where it was going. I appreciate that. I like the lead actor; he has a nice brooding intensity. Interesting guy. I wonder what he'll do as he ages.
The second one suffers from "What do we do now?" syndrome. It's kind of all over the place but in spite of that I thought it was ok. Worth watching if you enjoyed the first one.
I need to get back to my RE movies.
I bailed out by the end of S2 but Michael was definitely a Mary Sue in S1. Could barely stand listening to the writers suck up to their fictional character. Would’ve been much better and more believable (less eye-roll-ey) if they weren’t exclusively his abilities.Has material that worked in a tightly constrained environment ever improved when it went "open world"? Not rhetorical, I'm seriously asking.
I'm reminded of the first two seasons of Prison Break. The first season, mostly confined to the prison, was fantastic. The second season had so many characters, so many subplots, so many twists, so many locations that it was tiring to stay invested in it. They could have lopped off half of the arcs and been better for it. I binged most if it; its hard for me to imagine watching it spoonful by spoonful. The marginalization of Michael's abilities was a bad decision. They turned him into a sobbing, self-pitying wimp.
Season 2 of Prison Break may be one of the most ambitious seasons of TV ever attempted but that doesn't make it one of the most successful.
Chris Hemsworth was not funny at all. He just is not really funny. It is like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone making comedy movies. It just does not work.so, it's finally upon us, the time when ghostbusters is rehabilitated. next year, Hitler.
i actually thought chris hemsworth's vapid dumb blonde australian surfer-dude to be the best thing in the film.
from the name, I would have never known it was Pixar.Coco - 9.5/10 - I knew it would be a good movie, but it was even better than I expected. Excellent story.
Pixar's version of Grim Fandango, except a little kid who's still alive. Or so I gather without having seen itfrom the name, I would have never known it was Pixar.
heck, I wouldn't even know that it was a cartoon.
i'll watch it because it's Pixar.
no clue what a coco is, but i'll probably get it while watching the movie?
