    Discuss films and TV series*, recommend them, rate them, bash them for all I care, but don't make a fight out of it. Opinions are different, and they will continue to be different. If someone else loves a film you hate, ignore the other one, but feel free to explain why you hate it - and then leave it at that, don't try to prove your opinion is better, or that the other opinion is flawed or lacking in evidence.

    Let everyone have their own opinions in peace, and enjoy discussing films with people who have opinions similar to yours instead. Can we just do that? I'm so sick of people always having to shove their e-peen into friendly discussions. It always happens when arts are discussed - my subjective opinion is bigger better than yours! Make this thread the exception. Thanks.

    Stick to discussing complete seasons first and foremost.

    If you must spoil, use [HIDDEN]-tags.

    Captain America.. I honestly don't know why I bothered. I just threw it into the order to get free shipping. I figured Marvel had done somewhat decent films lately and it was worth a shot. Wait, it's not Marvel, is it? It's DC? Or what is that other company called? Ah, screw that, anyway. The beginning is really awkward because, if I recall correctly, they're in Tønsberg, Norway during WW2 just like they were in Tønsberg on Thor, centuries earlier, and there's mountains in the back. Although it's less apparent in Captain America, the mountains are still there, and they don't exist. Tønsberg is relatively flat, with a rock called Slottsfjellet being the highest point. Another largely annoying feature is that they hired a German to be the Norwegian priest(?) and although his words are Norwegian, the pronunciation is far off. And I mean, it's one sentence, they could at least have tried to get it right. To further up the ridicule, there's this guy with a huge head and a tiny body (I bet he would have trouble standing upright in real life with a head twice the weight of his body) trying to get enlisted for military duty. It's all fine and dandy that he wants to be in the army, but if his physics is what prevents him from being enlisted, then why doesn't he do anything about it? Moving on, he becomes part of this secret project because some professor sees that he is thoroughly good and therefore is perfect for the experiment. So they build him muscle, ie return his real body to the head. But that's not all, because this guy can suddenly run faster than a car. The muscle they made on him is redundant, because he's obviously magic. Just like all other Marvel characters, but still. I'm not going to spoil any more, though. The film is shit, only watch it if you love Marvel or liked Thor and Ironman and want some filling to the story.

    Blitz is a Jason Statham genre film. Except it's not really. He's an uncontrollable cop with an impossible case he's trying to solve. Then there's this lunatic serial cop killer that thinks he's the best thing since sex. Perfect actor for the job there, by the way. It all takes on a predictable course and there's nothing you haven't seen before.

    The Rock, well, if you haven't seen it, it offers names such as Don Simpson, Michael Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer and Sean Connery. As a bonus, Claire Forlani shows up as well. It takes place in San Francisco Bay, on Alcatraz, where a rogue General and his troops occupy the island and take the tourists on the location as captives. This to prove a point, pay a bunch of families of fallen soldiers and to secure their own future.
    "I'd take pleasure in guttin' you, boy"
    Also, I'm trying to imply here, that it's a really great film and you should watch it.

    The International is one of those conspiracy films where everyone are working against you and there's nobody you can trust. It works more or less, but you never really get the idea of paranoia apart from one scene quite early on. It's kind of essential that when you're in a world where there's nobody you can trust and everyone's out to get you, you get a little paranoid. Anyway, Clive Owen does a good job otherwise and the film is exciting enough. As for recommendation, if you're looking for this kind of film, I'd say The Adjustment Bureau is a better shot. Much better shot.

    Doomsday is an excellent film. You have punk slash post-apocalyptic, you have medieval and you have dirty modern society. In addition, you have Rhona Mitra and David O'Hara, the former being my second favourite action film actress and the latter being the most awesome voice and accent combination on the planet - and he got the looks to go with it. I really got nothing more to add, because this film is just perfect entertainment for me. It satisfies me in all areas except emotion, and sometimes, you don't want the emotion.

    The movie I've seen most recently is Ghost Town, in which Ricky Gervais (shame on those who don't know him) plays a dentist who can see dead people. Great humor. But it's still a Hollywood movie, so expect some sappy romance as well.

    And some shitty Sci-Fi channel movie I watched for about 10 minutes, called Ice Spiders. Has anyone ever seen a good Sci-Fi channel movie?

    Yeah, seen that one. He plays the exact same role as in all of his other movies. He also always looks the same, even in that fantasy movie of his, A Dungeon Siege Tale. :p

    I bloody loved the opening sequence, that was absolutely phenomenal. In fact, the first 20 minutes enticed me more than the rest of the film entirely. Can't quite put my finger on it, I think the way they portrayed his seclusion just had an impact on me.

    Aw, I can't remember the beginning of that film, in fact, I only vaguely remember the contents roughly contained in the trailer. Even so, I seem to recall enjoying it.

    I watched Tintin and the Secret of the Unicorn.
    You are a fan of Tintin comics? go watch it, a highly recommended movie for you, a blast from the past.
    Even my dad wants to watch it.

    I've been meaning to go see that one.


    Really a bummer though, I was actually considering watching the dubbed version if the original voice actors were to participate.
    Turns out most of the bundle were either politely knocking on death's door or ill-mannered enough to have barged in inadmissibly.

    I watched from Incredible Hulk (2008) to Captain America.
    Still looking forward for Avengers, and also watched Ghost Rider. I liked them all. :)

    I've been watching Apollo 18, I'm 117% sure that the movie is TRUE and NASA and the ministry of defense for America tried to stopped it from being published as a movie, however, the Russian politicians MIGHT have helped them in publishing the movie. The official website for Apollo 18, the movie, had been blocked by the America's government. Here's the website: http://www.lunartruth.com
    I couldn't access it as well though, it just keep saying loading 0%.
    BRO TIP: Watch Apollo 18 at night, although watching it on the Moon would have better effects.
    You guys should really watch Apollo 18, I give it a 8/10.
