makes u wonder who the hell wrote this script and apperently changed it suddenly...

And you are right, i should't call it a wannabe twilight series, but that was the first thing that came to my head when i watched the movie(not the book though, thats totally different.)
Well, that happens honestly. I did have high hopes for this movie. I really did. I really like The Karate Kid by Harald Zwart and thought that he would do this some justice. It saddens me. I still need to see it though considering I am a film critic, but nevertheless, this reception from virtually everybody makes me weary.

The studios are making a sequel, and they say they are delaying the sequel for script purposes (They probably figured out the problems with the first one), and I am happy they are making it despite the box office reception. However, I do hope they grab a different director...

ow, it saddens me that they make a sequel, since they messed up the first one so much.
Makes me wonder how they are gonna do it, becouse they really do need to begin from square one,mainly couse the current one seemed to be intended as a stand-alone movie, since the storie was edited so much that its near inpossible to make a sequel of that ending...

Smokey And The Bandit (1977)

Believe it or not, I had never seen it all the way through until about a couple of weeks ago.... :-o
Anti-Yuki till the grave claims me...

Kid Kool (1988) for the Nintendo Entertainment System is GROSSLY underrated. Sure the concept could've been presented a little better, but it doesn't deserve the hate it gets in some circles.

I saw Wonder Woman this Sunday and HOLY CRAP WAS IT GOOD!

Erm... sorry about that.

Okay, spoiler free: the plot was engaging, the characters were great from the beginning to (almost) the end. The cast changes partway through, which should be a drawback, but is handled deftly. The combat scenes rock; Gal Gadot is up there with Scarlett Johannsen in the ass-kicking department. Chris Pine is a great Steve Trevor, dedicated, a little world-weary and a good match for the Amazonian Princess. The villains are a little shallow, but suitably evil. The real villain of the movie though is the Great War itself. It is shown repeatedly chewing up lives like an insatiable monster. The myriad ways in which it manages the break bodies, minds and souls is an ongoing theme in the movie.
Which, leads me to my one serious complaint (sort of). While Ares has some good lines before the big finale, he just wasn't godly enough for me. After watching the horrors of the front through Wonder Woman's eyes, you really expect him to be well... more impressive. He's not bad, mind you, but he's not on the level of Hiddleston's Loki. As I said, the War itself is more powerful and intimidating than the God of War, which may have been the director's point.
I'm really hoping this is the turning point for DC's movies and not a lone high point.

Erm....
I agree with everything. Gal is FINE!!! I really liked how they made her naivety charming versus obnoxious. When the secret about her origins were released, is it just me


or did she start to fly? Especially in the last scene.
Man she kicked ass though.

I saw Spider-Man: Homecoming on Friday and HOLY CRAP IT WAS GOOD!

(Hmmm... Deja-vu?)

Tom Holland is THE definitive Spider-Man. He manages to balance the sheer joy of having super powers with the awkwardness of still being a kid. Michael Keaton plays the Vulture as an understandable, even sympathetic villain who is, at the same time, scary as hell. The supporting cast is great, both Peter's best friend Ned and a side character, Michelle, steal every scene either is in. Finally, there is just the right amount of Robert Downey JR. The plot is not groundbreaking, but still very well written with a few scenes that are absolute genius.
DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING SPOILER UNTIL YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE.
The entire sequence from when Peter goes to pick up Liz for the dance to when her Dad has his "little talk" with Peter is absolutely Oscar worthy. Then, when Pete has to ditch Liz, ruining the budding romance and his happiness in order to do the right thing is the essence of a Spider-Man story.
What I love best about both Homecoming and Wonder Woman is that these are two completely different films; one could argue that they're different genres entirely (Homecoming is a teen film in the best John Hughs tradition), yet they are both superhero films and both were made with a love and respect for the characters. Honestly Hollywood, I didn't hink you could do it.

Oh, and there's not one mention of the @&$$*#¥ Green Goblin or $#%€£¥ dead Uncle Ben. :ymapplause:

I disagree but I just loved the Garfield films so maybe biased.

Also Parker mentions hot aunt May is still dealing with Ben's death, although subtle.

It's not that I disliked the Amazing Spiderman movies; I just didn't want to sit though another rehash of his origin story. I'd be just as aggravated if we see the destruction of Krypton or the murders in Crime Alley ever again. And I've never been a big fan of the Green Goblin. His motivations and personality are usually pretty poorly defined. He often does things just for the sake of being evil. I'm referring to the character in general, not any particular version. Also, the original comic book Goblin costume is goofy looking. And I say that as a long time comic fan. I know, most of Spidey's villains look pretty silly, but at least some like Doc Ock or The Vulture can be updated. I've yet to see a decent looking GG in any of the movies. Maybe if the used the Hobgoblin suit as a template, it might work better on the screen.

good thing they didn't cover the origin story at all then and pick up some time after the airport event.
