I can't believe you think X-Men First Class was actually good. It actively shit on source material and didn't really have a "point", specifically because it shit on source material so much that at this point its in its own universe.Here's my long overdue list of recent reviews:
The Avengers 7/10: Terribly overhyped. Some of the super hero movies manage to be excellent all around such as X-Men First Class and Iron Man 1. Both were just wholesome and fun at the same time. The Avengers was lackluster and didn't quite stand out considering it was THE movie to tie out all the heroes and their respective movies together. It's almost as bad as Captain America.
It may piss off the comic book nerds, I don't have a problem with that.I can't believe you think X-Men First Class was actually good.

I like the ending also, butHere's my long overdue list of recent reviews:
MiB 3 7/10: Doesn't have the charm of the original, but way better than the terribad second one. I also loved the ending. A nice flick all around.
yea I also thought this movie was rushed at the end. I would've given it a 9 had it played out the pasage thru the Himalayas part. But they probably had to cut that out because of budgetary concerns of filming in the mountainsI really liked this as well, I did think that it ended really abrubtly. It seemed to give ample time to many aspects of the story, but the final leg was very rushed and felt like a letdown compared to the overall arc. I kind of have the idea that this would have made a spectacular David Lean film with a good 3 or 3.5 hours to really breathe.
I still recommend it, but that aspect indeed bothered me.
awesome! hope you like it.You just put this on my radar; I'm gonna check it out. Thanks!
Thats what everyone keeps saying.The Dark Knight Rises - 8/10.glaring plot holes render me unable to score it any higher
Pacing is similar to Dark Knight...towards the end of the movie, I say pacing is better than Dark Knight.Thats what everyone keeps saying.
Not to mention it supposedly takes a whole hour to get going.
This is not what happens at all.I am worried that DKR will suffer from "Spiderman 3: The Syndrome" too many characters, not enough time dedicated to play out a character.. which combined with ridiculously long run time.. makes for an extremely tiring movie going experience.
Are the plot holes even more noticeable than The Dark Knight? I'm one of the minority who thinks TDK was a bit overrated.The Dark Knight Rises - 8/10.glaring plot holes render me unable to score it any higher
Good to know. I am going to watch the movie on a weekday next week, I hate those huge crowds.. ruins my mood.This is not what happens at all.
The character development is excellent and is one of the best parts of the movie. I especially loved Bane's backstory.
Depends what Dark Knight plot hole you're referring to. It doesn't change the fact that the movie is an exceptional piece of filmmaking...the scenes in question just make you go WTF.Are the plot holes even more noticeable than The Dark Knight?

Ugh.The Grey 7.5/10: Pretty good. I loved the artistic ending. Wasn't memorably fantastic though.
Thanks, you've convinced me to watch it in the near futureUgh.
Why does everyone like this movie (especially the critics)? It's worthless! I really don't want to force myself to watch it again just to articulate what's wrong with it.
Agreed. I thoroughly enjoyed First Class. When you have Kevin Bacon on your side who cares about comic book source material?It may piss off the comic book nerds, I don't have a problem with that.
I too feel that First Class is a way better movie than the Avengers.
