Nightcrawler review

Posted : 3 days, 23 hours ago on 16 December 2014 04:35 (A review of Nightcrawler)

Nightcrawler is for sure one of the best film of the year no doubt about that and its another great acting performance by Jake Gyllenhaal proving once again that he is one of the best actors in the industry. The film opens up with Jake Gyllenhaal's character "Louis Bloom" steeling some chain-link fence when a cop roles up but when questioning the cop he learns that he is just a private security guard and proceeds on beating him up and stealing his valuable watch. While driving home after trying the sell the fence and a few other things to a scrapyard Louis stumbles upon a wreckage on the highway and notices two guys filming cops trying to save a woman from a burning car and by the look on his face you can just see him fall in love it. From here we see Louis go from a no name guy with a cheap camcorder recording graphic news stories to one of the best in the game with his own company, a new ride with tons of high-tech equipment, and a assistant. All is not so great though and we see just the lengths Louis will go to become the best in the business even if that means lying to the police. The ending had such a great build up and fully delivered i was on the edge of my seat for about the last 15-20 minutes of the film.

Overall give it a 8.7

Fury review

Posted : 3 days, 23 hours ago on 16 December 2014 04:26 (A review of Fury)

Fury is a gritty war movie that delivers on what i expected from it and while there are a few things i did have a problem with they weren't big enough to distract me from really liking the film. The film follows a veteran tank crew during the end of WWII in Nazi Germany and that gains a new recruit after one of its members dies during combat. The cast does a great job and while i did hate that they were all pretty much complete assholes yes even Brad Pitt although he was still a likable asshole still though that's what you would have to expect in war because war is brutal. The action scenes were absolutely amazing because of how gory it was like right from the beginning we see a Nazi riding on a horse by the tank and from behind the entrance we see Brad Pitt come out from and tackle the Nazi off his horse and stab him in the face a couple times from that part i knew i was going to like the movie. The whole scene with Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman characters and the two girls was pretty boring and pointless but i see why they decided to add it still though it did drag on for a bit too long. The ending battle was truly epic and it showed a lot of my favorite aspect of the film which was the tracer rounds seeing all the red and green bullets racing across the screen was seriously awesome it may be random but that's what i liked the most.

Overall i give it a 8.0

Interstellar review

Posted : 1 month, 1 week ago on 11 November 2014 04:35 (A review of Interstellar)

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is a awe-inspiring, powerful, and thought-provoking film that leans heavily on human emotions. Now of course people will compare this to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A space Odyssey and why i do think Interstellar is an amazing film i don't think its on the level of Kubrick's 2001 but while others see this as a bad thing i don't and i wish that wasn't something people judge the film by.

Interstellar opens up in the near future on a dying earth which cannot sustain life for much longer with food becoming scarce and frequent major dust storms it's reminiscent of the 1930's Dust Bowl only worse. The film follows Cooper (McConaughey) a former NASA test pilot and engineer who is now a farmer that lives with his daughter Murph, his son Tom, and his father-in-law Donald. This is where we spend the first 30-40 minutes of the film that serves as the set-up for things come and while nothing really amazing happens here this is where the film builds on its emotion of love with Cooper and his daughter which ends up being the whole underlining theme of the movie. I can understand why people don't like the whole "love theme" of the movie but to those people i want to know if they even understand the movie itself?



Now after using a wormhole or should i say the sphere-hole the group which consists of Amelia (Anne Hathaway), Romilly (David Gyasi), Doyle (Wes Bentley), and TARS a walking, talking, pillar-like, robot thingy they find themselves searching 3 earth like planet to see which one is habitable. On the first planet they show off time relativity which was a really cool thing but this was where i had my first problem with the film, that being the pacing of it. Alright so basically for every hour they spend on this planet 7 years will have passed on earth and of course after something goes wrong on the planet some of the group gets stuck there for what seems like 20 minutes but in fact is like 4-5 hours so in total they end up spending almost 24 years on that planet and that's my problem with it at no point did it feel like they were on that planet for 4-5 hours maybe 2 or 3 hours at the most.



Now i wont go into much more into this as it will be giving away key parts of the story and i don't want to do that to a movie like this. I will say though that the ride doesn't end there and if anything it just keeps getting crazier and crazier for me the movie felt a lot like Inception by which i mean the different layers the film has. I'm not sure if others feel like this too i don't know maybe its just me but that does bring me to my next point. Just like Inception i feel like Interstellar will get a love it or hate it reception by this i mean since its like Inception people will end up finding its story too complex and hard to follow but for me i was able to follow this movie just fine even with all the scientific space talk it has.



Its visuals were jaw dropping to say the least i love how great Nolan gets his movies to look with filming on film rather than digital like most movies nowadays. Film gives you something different something digital has yet to offer it just sucks that more and more studios are trying to push digital because its cheaper and more efficient but its great that some of the best directors still around like Nolan, Scorsese, and Tarantino still love to use film lets hope it doesn't fade away with titans like them still using it. Now onto the Score by Hans Zimmer while i did absolutely love it i did feel like there was a bit too much of it being used in the film by that i mean i would have liked a few more silent scenes of the spaceship just spinning around with the earth in the background or when its just out in space something to give off that "there is no sound is space" feel but other than that the score was perfection. One more thing i was hoping for in the movie was that there were more scenes of stars, galaxies, and of just being in space in general, although the movie takes place in space a lot of it is spent either inside the ship or on a planet so you don't get that full immersed feeling but what we do get to see like the wormhole, the space-warp, and the few shots of planets, its just simply amazing to look at but i do understand that if they add those scenes it would only slow done a film that was already approaching 3 hours... still though i personally would have loved it.



The overall acting was solid but that's to be expected with so many great actors and with most already having worked with Nolan on previous films that wouldn't be an issue. Yes of course Matthew McConaughey does another great acting performance but that's nothing to be surprised by anymore the guy has seriously turned his acting career around but Mackenzie Foy's acting performance as young Murphy was something i was moved by she is quite a talented young actress for sure someone to keep an eye out for later roles. Something i didn't really care for was Bill Irwin as the voice of TARS for me his voice just didn't seem to fit although i did like that the robot was the source of the few comedy bits the film had.

Overall i give it a 9.0 While Interstellar may not be a masterpiece it comes pretty damn close and for sure a must watch for everyone.

Hercules review

Posted : 1 month, 1 week ago on 6 November 2014 08:54 (A review of Hercules)

Hercules while its not the best movie of 2014 it certainly isn't the worst and its for sure better than the other Hercules movie that came out earlier this year. Hercules is an entertaining action movie but that's about it the story was rather bland and its dialog isn't that much better though it was actually funny in parts and while i really did enjoy all the blood being shed it still wasn't enough for me to get past its boring plot line. I mean yeah for being a PG-13 movie it did have a shit load of blood maybe some other PG-13 action movie can learn a lesson from this *cough* *cough* Expendables 3 *cough*. Dwayne Johnson did a decent performance as Hercules it was nothing special but that's because this movie only calls for him to be a brute the entire time. The effects were clearly not the best with and with a budget of 100 million i guess not enough of that went into the CGI though the sets did look nice so you have to give them that most movies nowadays use a shit load of CGI so its a give and take with that one.

Overall i give it a 6.0 the movie is average and doesn't have a real good re-watch value but it's all a matter of opinion as i know some people who really liked this movie.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For review

Posted : 2 months ago on 17 October 2014 06:30 (A review of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For)

While Sin City: A Dame to Kill For doesn't live up to the hype i had for it i still found the film to be enjoyable. I guess you can say that none of the four storylines the movie follows are all that great but they still each have there likable parts it just sucks that you don't actually feel satisfied by any of them. The violence in the movie was awesome and not as bad as what people made it out to be after reading reviews i was expecting some crazy stuff so i was kinda letdown when it wasn't also i was expecting the blood to really stand out and be blood red not white with the film also being in black & white so that also a letdown. Eva Green as Ava the dame to kill for is exactly that, a smoking hot women that has a powerful control over men and she uses that to get what she wants. Now i wasn't expecting her to naked as much as she was but its not like im complaining about it because im not but seriously i bet most her screen time was spend being naked. Rosario Dawson and all the other whores where awesome but none so more than Jamie Chung as Miho a kickass woman with a samurai sword that deals out a lot of the deaths you see in the movie. Now ill be honest and say that i was excited to see Jessica Alba stripper dance scene but yet again this was another part i was letdown with sure she does do it a couple times throughout the movie but its just like a tease until the end when she fully does it but even that felt like a tease i would have much rather seen Rosario Dawson do a sexy dance.

Now my biggest problem with the film was with the ending of Nancy's story and that the film itself i don't want to say what happens but when it happened i was like did they seriously just do that and that made the film leave a sour taste in my mouth afterwards.

Overall i give it a 7.0

The Expendables 3 review

Posted : 2 months ago on 17 October 2014 05:37 (A review of The Expendables 3)

Surprised i even decided to do this review but oh it wont be all that long.... well here we go

The Expendables 3 is worst of the franchise simple as that, the script, dialog, acting, and action all were terrible and maybe it could have been a little better with it being a rated R movie like it should have been but no Lionsgate has to try to bleed every penny they can from it by making it PG-13. The whole thing with Barney letting go of his old team so they don't end up dying is freaking stupid and throwing in a bunch of new people we don't care about doesn't make things any better. Mel Gibson as the big bad villain of the movie was a absolute joke i don't see how people actually thought he did a good job because he didn't. Now some of that is most likely do to the script being shit but i still don't think he did a good acting performance. I mean seriously he has a scene in the film where it just shows him being a huge dick while buying a expensive painting and that's it nothing else the scene contributes nothing to the overall film other than i don't know to let us know that he is a dick that likes art and there are a couple scenes like this in the movie. Most the new crew they have in the movie was pointless the only one i seemed to like was Ronda Rousey even though she kept having a dumb look on her face she still kicked a ton of ass so it was all good, and what the hell was with Antonio Banderas i understand they tried to make him the comical relief but he just came off as super annoying. The final act was tedious and the end fight with Stallone and Gibson was a snoozefest to say the least. The way the movie ends with them hinting that the new team might take over for the old team was cringeworthy and i seriously hope that wont happen and personally i just wish the franchise dies with this film.

Overall i give it a 5.0

Transformers: Age of Extinction review

Posted : 2 months, 2 weeks ago on 30 September 2014 09:24 (A review of Transformers: Age of Extinction)

Don't think this will be much of a review rather a rant of just how HORRIBLE this movie really is. Well first things first like most other peoples problem with the movie is that its just too damn long, a movie made for kids doesn't need to have the running time of a Peter Jackson movie simple as that. I was pretty much on auto pilot after the first 40 minutes of the movie and that's actually when the movie starts to pick up. So my mind was pretty much drained of any knowledge at this point and now here comes the onslaught of explosions you'd expect from a Michael Bay movie but holy shit did it never end i mean seriously someone needs to do a cut of this movie and see just how much time is spent on explosions i bet that could be a movie in itself. Now for the plot of the movie.... well wait which one... the one were Megatron oh wait never mind its Galvatron wants to comeback rule again for the umpteenth time or its the one about "The Seed" and them needing to get rid of it so it doesn't explode killing millions of humans or is it the one were Lockdown is hunting autobots and killing them looking for Optimus Prime well whichever one it was they all where crap. I would have rather just liked to have seen Lockdown hunting down Optimus and the other autobots that would have been a way better movie.


All the human characters are completely forgettable and have some of the WORST dialog i have ever heard in a movie the back and forth between Cade (Mark Wahlberg) and his daughters boyfriend Shane (Jack Reynor) was some of the most cringeworthy stuff ever to say the least. Kelsey Grammer was annoying and his character was cliched to hell, Nicola Peltz and Stanley Tucci weren't bad but not good just forgettable. Bumblebee not speaking yet by the fourth film is just ridicules also it seemed like they tried to make him more like Skids and Mudflap in his voice reactions and it just didn't work at all. John Goodman as hound was actually one of the only things a liked about the movie i thought he did a really good voice over and his dialog wasn't bad which helped for sure. The effects were crap and a serious step down from previous installments the way the new transformers could construct and deconstruct themselves was some really bad cgi and so was being able to see the metal move around like liquid and make anything and turns into a Beats speaker pill thing which was some of the most shameless advertisement i have seen but it wasn't as bad as the single worst advertisement i have seen which was the Bud Light beer scene in the movie it was pointless other than to just show the product whats worse is that they even tried to be funny with it but it fails hard now i didn't hate the mountain dew transformer nor the Xbox 360 transformer advertisements in previous installments but these were just terrible.

I can go on for longer but i don't think that's necessary I've gotten my point across that i didn't like the movie.

Overall i give it a 3.0

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review

Posted : 4 months, 1 week ago on 14 August 2014 11:11 (A review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)


April O'Neil: What are you?
Leonardo: We're ninjas.
Raphael: We're mutants!
Donatello: Technically, we're turtles.
Michelangelo: And we're teenagers. But we can have adult conversations.
April O'Neil: So, you're... Ninja Mutant Turtle Teenagers?
Donatello: When you put it like that, it sounds ridiculous!


Alright so despite getting bad reviews all around and having Michael Bay's name attached to it a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was something i had to watch just because i grew up watching the movies and TV show. The hate for this movie pretty much started once everyone saw Michael Bay's name attached to but it exploded when we they released the first trailer and we all saw just how horrible the turtles looked. Now i hated them just as much as everyone else but overtime it actually didn't seem to bother me as much i guess it was just the shock of them seeing them look completely different for the first time. Ill just say this though the movie isn't as bad as the critics make it out to be now sure its not a great movie but its not a bad one either its just a average, decent movie which honestly it could have been A WHOLE LOT WORSE if they had used the first script that had the turtles being aliens and a whole bunch of other lame stuff.



The movie follows April O'Neil (Megan Fox) a reporter for the Channel 6 news in New York, tired of doing low ball news stories she is looking to really make a name for herself. She has been doing some research on a local gang called the Foot Clan a bunch of thugs causing chaos across the city after getting some info on who to talk to about the Foot Clan she heads to the docks where she ends up seeing the Foot Clan unloading some cargo but before she can get closer to film them shooting starts to break out as we see dark turtle figures kicking the crap out of Foot Clan soldiers which was pretty cool as we see just how powerful the turtles as we see them throw huge cargo containers, she later tries to tell people about it but no one seems to believe her. After April and her camera man Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett) get done with reporting at a event where she ends up meeting her dads old work partner Eric Sachs (William Fichtner) they noticed people running from the train station so she goes down there to investigate. She of course runs into the Foot Clan again but this time she is captured and put with a bunch of other hostages, this being the Foot Clans plan to take hostages to try to get the turtles to come out from hiding yet at this point both April and the Foot Clan think there is only one vigilante.



The turtles again come to save the day kicking the ass out of the Foot Clan but this time April was able to spot how they got out and was able to to find them on a roof top and while the turtles were boasting about how much ass kicking they did she takes a picture of them but before she can get away they catch her and she ends up passing out. When she wakes up the turtles have already erased the picture on her phone and tell her if she tell anyone about them they will find her. Later on when the turtles return back to their home in the sewers Master Splinter finds them sneaking back in and demands that they tell him what they did and after some hardcore punishment involving a pizza Michelangelo isn't able to hold out anymore and tells him what they did this is when we find that they its not them that is in trouble but rather April O'Neil. During this time April goes to see Eric to tell him that his and her dads work wasn't wasted and shows him the turtles she of course thinks he wants to do good so she doesn't think anything of it and he give her his business card little does she know that he is working with the Foot Clan.



Later on Donatello hacks into her laptop and tells her to meet them so she does and after having cover her face they bring her to their base where she finds out all about what happened that night in the lab when her dad died trying to destroy all the work they had done when he figured out what Eric really wanted to do with it. This is where we find out that it was April that saved them and put them in the sewer and once they got there they started to grow fast and learn the way of ninjutsu. Realizing that Eric is bad she remembers the card he gave her and just then alarms start to go off and the place is flooded with Foot Clam members but also Shredder who is NOT played by William Fichtner which many seem to still think and hate on but its actually Tohoru Masamune that is the one to play Shredder. This was actually pretty cool as i wasn't expecting to see Shredder so early on so that was cool and it was even better to see Master Splinter and Shredder go one on one and we see Splinter kick the crap out of Shredder before he is able to get the upper hand, during this time we see the turtles again kick the crap out of even more weak Foot Clan members before they become heavily out numbered and get taking hostage by the Foot Clan but only three of them as the Foot Clan think they killed Raphael during the big fight.



From here we follow Raphael and April as they try to go free the other turtles and save the town from being turned into one big quarantine zone as Shredder and Eric want to rule the city by holding it hostage with the cure to the poison fluid they have made. The story was bland and is nothing new taking a page from The Amazing Spider-Man and Batman Begins with the villain trying to use a poison against the city. I didn't care for the useless Foot Clan which was a complete joke in this movie also i hated how we needed to have April involved with the story once Raphael goes to save his brothers you would think since they want to keep her safe they would leave her behind and not lead her into danger but i guess not. It wouldn't be so bad if the villains were intriguing but they aren't one is a money hungry douche bag and the other is a power hungry dick i mean at least in 1990 version Shredder isn't some forgetful nobody like he is in this.



Now lets get onto some parts i did like, one being that the overall humor for the movie was great it had me laughing quite a bit another good part was the turtles as they are all great but i would have to say Michelangelo was my favorite as he has plenty of great scenes he also liked to hit on April a lot which was also pretty funny. The action was actually not that bad like i said before the fight between Splinter and Shredder was awesome also the fight at the end with the four turtles and Shredder was pretty kick ass and even the fight between just Raphael and Shredder was cool despite raph getting his ass kicked. Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick was good but i felt like he could have been even funnier favorite scene was with him staring at Aprils butt while she tires to record the turtles fighting with the Foot Clan. Megan Fox as April O'Neil was okay but largely forgettable i really didn't care for her character but i think her having proper red hair would have helped also im sure she would have looked dropped dead gorgeous.

Overall i give it a 6.0 While some will think this movie is garbage its better than A LOT of other movies i have seen this year and im sure if people actually gave it a chance rather then just seeing Bay's and Liebesman's name attached to it and automatically think its crap they might be surprised.

Need for Speed review

Posted : 4 months, 2 weeks ago on 7 August 2014 10:16 (A review of Need for Speed)

Alright so i knew this movie was going to be bad right from the start as it made no sense for Need For Speed game to be adapted into a movie. After watching the trailer i was right to think to movie was going to be crap the only real reason i gave it a watch was that because all the racing and stunts in the movie are real and not CGI like most movies nowadays so you have to give them that also that Aaron Paul was in it and after the ending of Breaking Bad it was something a lot of people were wanting to see him in. Ill just say this movie was about 30 minutes longer than it needed to be and for it being a two hour movie it felt like it was 3 hours i seriously got board half way through it. The movie wasn't funny i chuckled at a couple parts but nothing more also the racing was decent but nothing new and not enough to keep me entertained. Pretty much everything about this movie is cliched and bland but nothing was more cliched than Dominic Cooper as the movies bad guy. I will say though that i thought Imogen Poots was going to be annoying but actually she wasn't that bad pretty much the only character that i liked.

Overall i give it a 5.0 this movie was completely forgettable don't waste your time on it

Guardians of the Galaxy review

Posted : 4 months, 2 weeks ago on 7 August 2014 09:17 (A review of Guardians of the Galaxy)

We're the fricking Guardians of the Galaxy!


A spoiler filled review ahead so be cautious



Guardians of the Galaxy is a hilarious, fast paced, action packed, fun filled ride set to thrill any film goer ready to watch a excellent summer blockbuster. Now it seems a lot of people are calling this Marvels best movie yet but i can't quite call it that myself. Don't get me wrong i absolutely loved the movie it was freaking awesome to say the least and i have it tied with Captain America: The Winter Solider as my favorite comic book movie of the year but i just can't call it the best one yet as it didn't give me that uncontrollable rush of excitement while i was watching it at the theater like i got with Iron Man, The Avengers, and Captain America 2. When the first trailer hit it seemed like i was one of the few that wasn't impressed by it and i wasn't going to judge it until i got to see more but once the second trailer hit and it was freaking amazing i was all in for this movie and all the other trailers and TV spots that came out after that only added to my hype for the movie.



The movie starts out on earth we see a young Peter Quill in a hospital visiting his sick mother and after a brief scene of her talking to peter she dies, Peter runs out of the hospital into a nearby field and falls on the ground. While crying in the field we see a bunch of flying ships come from out of nowhere and abduct Peter. Now the film picks up 26 years later we see a older Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) out on the abandoned planet of Morag searching for something we soon see him find a mysterious orb but just as hes about to leave he encounters Korath (Djimon Hounsou) a servant of Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and he demands Peter give him the orb but of course that can't happen and we see Peter get into a small fight with Korath and other lackeys as he tries to make a getaway. After a exciting space chase that was reminiscent of "Star Wars" Peter was able to out run Korath but in the process screwing over his partner Yondu (Michael Rooker) leader of The Ravagers the people who kidnapped him from earth.



Peter attempts to sell the orb on the planet of Xandar, the Nova Corps home world but after finding out that Ronan also wants the orb the buyer backs out saying he wants nothing to do with it and quickly backs Peter out of his shop. Just as Peter is back outside he runs into Gamora (Zoe Saldana) another servant of Ronan she ambushes him trying to steal the orb and a fight ensues it's not till later that we find out that she was never going to return it to Ronan but another buyer. While her and Peter are fighting we see Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) two bounty hunters lock in on Peter so they can capture him and return him to Yondu who had put a bounty on his head but in the process they also get caught up in the fight and soon they are all captured by the Nova Corps and sent to prison. From here we get a little back story on each of the three new characters and it adds another new character Drax (Dave Bautista) who has a serious problem with Gamora and wants to kill her because she serves Ronan and it was Ronan that killed his family right in front of him but Peter convinces him that Ronan will come after her and that will be the time to fight him.



After breaking out of the prison they head over to the criminal outpost of "Knowhere" thats built inside the massive head of a "celestial" to see The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) as he might know something about the orb that Ronan so badly wants. Once at the Collectors place we are gifted to many eastereggs such as Adams Warlock's cocoon that was first seen at the end credit scene of Thor: The Dark World, and we got to see a dark elf also from Thor 2, there are a few other eastereggs in this part but i don't want to give them away. Anyways after The Collector tells them that what they have is an Infinity Stone/Gem capable of bringing death to anyone not powerful enough to held the power it gives if they touch it. They send off for Xandar as its one of the best places to keep it safe but before they can leave Ronan is able to find them because a drunken Drax sent a message to him so he can finally get his revenge while the rest were meeting with The Collector. After a awesome action sequence involving a one on one with Drax and Ronan and a spaceship battle the guardians find themselves beaten with the orb in the hands of the enemy.



Now with the orb in the hands of the enemy Peter comes up with a plane to get it back but it requires the help of his ex-partner Yondu and his crew and after some convincing Yondu agrees to help the guardians out but with the stipulation that if they get the orb back he gets to keep it. Now at the end of the movie which for me seemed to come way too soon as i thought to myself whoa i can't believe we are already at the end battle we happen to get two more short encounters with The Guardians fighting Ronan before they are able to beat him which was a let down as it was SO short i mean there is no real fight between the two its actually one of the reasons why i cant say its the best marvel movie yet. Alright i guess ill say a few problems i had with the film because the film did have its faults, a minor one being that Drax the character from the movie is nothing like the Drax from the comic books that being said i did like the film character so its wasn't that bad, another thing i had a problem with is that Gamora is supposed to be brutal and ruthless but at times they made her feel too timid and i didn't like that, but i guess my biggest problem with the film is that i just didn't care for the villain Ronan or his cause for destroying Xandar he was just so underdeveloped that it seemed like his whole story was an afterthought despite being a major part of the movie, Karen Gillan as Nebula was decent though i didn't like that she just left during the battle at the end with no resolution as to what happened to her or where she went.



Overall i thought the main cast was great but could have been a little better, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill was fantastic don't think they could have got a better actor for the part, Bradley Cooper as Rocket was simply amazing as he was absolutely hilarious a couple of the gags he does had me crying from laughter, Vin Diesel as Groot had the most heartfelt moment of whole movie but he also has a couple funny parts despite him only being able to say "I AM GROOT" my favorite being with baby Groot at the end of the movie dancing behind Drax that was freaking hilarious, Drax and Gamora each had their moments but nothing really all that rememberable. A part that stood out to me even before i had seen the movie just the trailers was that marvel sure knows how do make GORGEOUS space backgrounds, i mean both Thor movies looked great but this movie since its mainly based in space we get to see loads more backgrounds some that were just amazing looking, i seriously can't wait to see how great it looks on Blu Ray. Another great thing about the movie was not only just its amazing soundtrack but also its score which for most people don't even seem to notice but im telling you its awesome just watch the scene when Groot is lighting up the room with fireflies listen to the background music and i'm telling you it will blow your mind.

Overall i give a 8.5 Seeing Thanos in the movie was awesome i think its funny that some fanboys are already finding things of him to bitch about. Now just 9 long miserable months until the ending of phase 2 with The Avengers: Age of Ultron "In Joss Whedon We Trust"

As I did last year, I'm going to repost some of my poorer performing lists. This week, I'm reposting the active list polls. Some will close at the end of the year, so this may be your last chance to participate. PLEASE do not just give them a drive-by vote, make some choices!
