I felt that Ant-Man was a "cartoon" movie. The dialog and story felt more like a cartoon than any other Marvel movie to date. I liked it.

Because of this though, it was more comical and reallllly cheesy. But Paul Rudd is a very good actor and can work with the cheese. Mostly the conversations between the daughter and father.

I didn't think it was as cheesy by adding 3 more l's to really, but other than that I agree with all of what you say. I liked the pacing and the fact that marvel is pumping different type of super hero movies like a madman.

Who see The Shannara Chronicles? If somebody watch, please told, why she/he find it boring/exciting?

Personally, I saw the first part. I hope it not drown into the ocean of cliches.

And second question: What do you think about Parks and Recreation/Game of Thrones/Marvel's Daredevil and Steven Universe (yes, yes... that annoying kid with the three gems and with the others. -_-
If you think, that is bad... tell me why please! :D )

I will let somebody else speak for GoT, as I would just find the clichee words everybody says about it. (I'm in love with it, but I'm not good at critizing it)

Daredevil though, I really loved it. The characters and the whole story were surprisingly dark and it made a really good contrast to the movies/series we know about. People often compare it to Arrow from DC, and they are kind of right. I prefer Daredevil, because the action is more believable in case of cinetography and acting, the characters are just more... living. They act like real people do, which I often disliked about Arrow.

The acting itself was splendig. I literally loved every single character and that is not often to find.

Marvel's Daredevil is great, and currently awaiting the next season. So that can be highly recommended.

However the new DC series on Netflix, disappointed me.. It felt goofy and cheap, and while some might like that - I feel that I am used to better from Marvel. So yea, that didn't really catch my attention.

However something I will highly recommend for those of you have might not have heard about it, is the cartoon movie: Assault on Arkham.

It is very well made, features the suicide squad and some batman action in a perfect blend, and damn would I wish they made more cartoon like it. Definitely made for adults as well. It is brilliant :thumbs_up:
 
Ash vs The Evil Dead
Is amazing, if you like campy old school horror, this might possibly be the greatest series for you of all time.
The series is a continuation of "The Evil Dead" and takes place after Ash has dealt with "the Cabin".
The series is dark, yet hilarious, and filled with horrific action scenes and silly scenes filled with humor. All while not taking itself too seriously.
Ash vs The Evil Dead has some new characters, which for the most part manages to play well, while Bruce Cambell, epic as always, manages to make this series one of the greatest things created this, and last, year.

(Rest is spoilers).

Saw Deadpool. Loved it. Definitely R rated movie.

Funny, good action, actually found the story somewhat engaging. I liked that it was simple, no end of the world shit.

Update on my end:

Peaky Blinders - One of the best series I've seen in recent times, certainly up there with
Sherlock, Game of Thrones and Hannibal. It's a gritty, Britty, gang series with a stage in
1919's Birmingham (and later London), where a family of criminals who've just made it
home from the war is starting to make a living for themselves. Obviously not really in
accordance with the law. I highly recommend anyone of a mature mind to watch it.

Penny Dreadful - Another excellent series, heavily influenced by the movies "the league
of extraordinary gentlemen" and "Van Helsing", or if not: By general British urban and
old legends. And although you may say what you want about those movies, this series
is taking those ideas, moving them into central 1800's London and making an ex-expolorer
of wealth and fame, a medium with a mysterious past and an American gunslinger deal
with it all. Same recommendation as with Peaky Blinders. They are both, I'd say, series
for a mature audience.

The Hateful Eight - I am a sucker for Tarantino movies, excluding the two
ridiculous Kill Bill movies, which I am completely incapable of liking. This movie,
which was originally planned to be a prequel to Django Unchained, I've heard, is
really fucking amazing. It's everything a Quintin Tarantino movie should be and
nothing more, which is exactly what makes it great. Great and diverse characters,
good acting, natural and entertaining dynamics and obviously it's fair share of gore.
Quite possibly the best Tarantino movie in my opinion.

Deadpool - Watch it.

Can sign that for Penny Dreadful. Loved every bit of it and if you are still not sure if you should watch it, there's another reason: Josh Hartnett

Deadpool was good, but not amazingly awesome that it should be considering the hype.

That I can sign too. The jokes were mediocre, I really only laughed when they made jokes breaking the 4th wall, e.g. jokes about the studio, wolverine etc. The others were dark, very dark but not all of them were really good.

You might say now that dark humour is what Deadpool defines, but even here you can have good dark humour and bad dark humour.

Still, very enjoyable movie.

I think it exceeded the hype honestly. I laughed a lot and I thought the jokes, even though they were easy, were good. The story was even pretty decent. I really like that it wasn't end of the world shit like most super hero movies. They kept it simple and small scale, but the acting was good enough to make me care at least a little bit.

That said, it's definitely not everyone's cup of tea. Very childish humor, gratuitous violence, and sex.

Oh and Colossus finally got screen time in a movie! <3

Loved DeadPool - and while I been looking forward to it for a while now, it didn't disappoint, so for me it lived up to the Hype. Just what I expected and much more of it.

Yea, several thing only worked in the movie, due to it being a deadpool film, but heck damn good.

So yea, also recommended from here, assuming you know what you are going into with DeadPool :wink:

You guys should watch The Good Dinosaur, It doesn't matter if it's a movie for Kids. But this movie is Outstanding and represents the bravery and the courage of Conquering fears and Pure bond with family and friends, The family part teared me a lot. :3

I just watched it on the Deepest Black-market depths of the internet :p
 
I expected a bit more from Deadpool.
Some parts were funny, but often it did not match my humor.
Though the story of his formation was interesting.

Waking Life was pretty interesting.
But is a bit special and so it isn't for a casual movie evening.



Asssination of Jesse James is an awesome one.
Though might be a bit lengthy for fans of full action movies.

SAMURAI TUESDAY. This time it was Takeshi Kitano's take on Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363226/?ref_=nv_sr_1



I've known of the old celebrated movie series with Shintarô Katsu for a long time, so I decided to give the new one a try. Bit of a tongue in cheek Clint Eastwood spagetthi western style take on it, only with badass swordsplay in place of gunslinging. And with fucking Takeshi Kitano in the lead (probably best recognized from films like Battle Royale).

This movie is absolute gold. Watch it.

Fury - Brad Pit, Michael Peña aand Logan Lerman ~ It's a good movie at start, I love the whole scenes but the ending was a total bullshit, They decided to survive on their Tanky home and ended up dead by an army of Nazis.. Except the newbie (Logan lerman) survived... Damn.. I only hate the last part -,-"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2713180/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_14

American Sniper - Bradley Cooper ~ I only like him in that movie but I hate this movie because it's too patriotic for the country.. I mean really... I dislike this.. (Sorry.) (I only like the kid getting drilled in the head) But the sand nigger terrorists are fucking stupid.

Sorry for the racist words aaaand the language, but it's only my reaction of american sniper :c

So X-Men Age of Apocalypse was mediocre at best. I was entertained I suppose, but really disappointed. I realize that the previous movies have taken huge liberties with the X-Men story, but this was the nail in the coffin for me. Other than names and a couple plot points, nothing ties in to the comics or old shows at all. Really sucks as a big X-Men fan.

Awesome right?
(2 months later =P) Not really my type of movie, but I guess it was cool, yeah. Just the sex scenes were dispensable =P they don't advance the movie at all. Surprisingly I've found a few of my colleagues share the same opinion about sex scenes in movies overall, even one who admittedly watches porn.

Watched Bridge to Terabithia, the 2007 version. Loved it!

What did YOU think of the Warcraft movie? (And if you liked it, are you gonna try and make some models based on it?)

Not Tauer, but I actually just saw it tonight and was impressed. It's pretty well-done, with lots of callbacks for us fans (things that are "fine" to not know, but cooler if you do know the lore behind it).

Some stuff has been changed; wondering if it's a "Star Trek" reboot continuity dealio, personally... And boy do I wish the Orcs weren't so gravelly. Really hard to understand them.

Personally, I feel the movie fell flat on it's face. Quite a few things were changed coming from the books (mostly for the worse), the whole story felt rushed and the dialogue seemed clunky. Effects were nice and design was on point yet I couldn't help but feel that I was not watching warcraft. It looked the part but the rest just wasn't there for me. Overall, disappointed with the movie.
