To be quite honest, the ridiculous attempts at outdoing the last big blockbuster with an even LOUDER soundtrack is one reason I rarely see these things in the theater anymore.

I honestly didn't care for her performance or really her whole career. I engaged with Gravity on a filmic level, I was wowed in wondering how it was done (in a computer lol) and that is where Gravity engaged me - I thought the characters were weak.

Really? I thought that was a nice touch. You did see it coming, right?

The loudness you can do something about, the crash zooms however...

Nah, I still scratch my head. I've watched the film three times, and I still have plenty of issues with the script. But Superman has been my favorite hero since I was a child, so it's really really really hard for me to resist seeing that big S on screen. Even in this unbelievably flawed version.

As long as it's covered and they don't see it. I'm sure it's no problem.

I remember at one movie I went to a person brought fried chicken in. I know that cause I smelled it. Plus they had it in foil, so that was a jot to behold.
fried chicken? Did they at least share? Most theatres I have been to have the no outside food sign but they don't go TSA on you and pat you down. Of course as a guy, it is hard to sneak food into movies during the summer - not a lot of hiding places.

Gina Gershon was sweet but I saw her recently on a show she is on (Cleaners) and she is starting to show her age. Still looks really good though for 52.

Wow. Incredibly well said.

Man of Steel, I would give another chance at home, if someone tied me to the couch, Clockwork Orange-ed open my eyes, and turned the movie on. Otherwise, not happening.

Why you wear pants and or shorts with a bunch of pockets. Or even a Hoodie/Windbreaker.
I have a horror script I wrote called "Truth Or Dare" It's very Scream like influenced. If interested in reading it. Please PM me.

I give Gravity a passing score for the technical achievements and that's it. Some great suspenseful moments but Bullock isn't cool. 3/5. Not a film I can see myself ever wanting to revisit either as seeing it at home would surely lessen the impact even more.

Pretty sure that's unpopular but seems to be not so at least on this most recent page. So there's my two cents on the matter.
#1: Skyfall - 4/17/13 | #50: Drive - 6/26/13 | #100: Gangster Squad - 9/1/13 | #200: The Princess Bride - 6/13/2014

If you think that puts him up there with the best directors of the last five years, well, that's certainly an unpopular opinion.
Ga'Hoole is pretty damn good IMHO. Man of Steel is soul-less and generic while Sucker Punch is a mess.

What you don't like great tits that are really beautiful, love doggy chow, thrusting it to cheesy 90's synth music or enjoy "seizures" during pool sex? For shame.

I love Showgirls, it's the most baffling film I've seen from the 90's.

I just slip in food I can fit into a baggy and tend to revisit theatres where I can use cups they allow you to get cheap refills in.

Howard the Duck is not one of the worst movies ever made. In fact, when i saw this for the first time as a kid i liked it alot. Especially during an era when - humans interacting with cartoon characters, a planet of native care bears beating up storm troopers, and time travelling telephone booths were flooding the cinemas, among hundreds of other fantastic and rediculous movies; this movie gets a beating?

Green Lantern & Daredevil are also quite entertaining movies. Sure they aren't Iron Man levels of greatness. But they are defenitely solid and don't deserve the hard critiques people give them. Elektra, Ghost Rider, and those terrible Fantastic Four movies deserve it much much more.

I don't think X2 and The Wolverine are as great as people put it, and I don't think X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X3:The Last Stand are as terrible as people credit it for.

I enjoyed Spiderman 3. No need to back that up.
