So next week we're going to hear Bob ***** about Man of Steel again? Yippee.
Ok true, it is simply personal preference, however he did organize them in such way. Instead Jim in the first episode detailed that it was not ordained in any particular order ( and repeated it in the next episodes ). It is kind of pointless anyway, since he himself recognizes it's probably not the best yet still put it there, it's already a bit of a troll from him.Strain42 said:
I'm not a critic and I loved it. It has a dreamy atmosphere, dark tones with critiques on culture, and some great acting. It LOOKS like a movie about criminals, but it's something else entirely. It's truly great.Gxas said:I haven't seen it, but I've heard wonderful things about it from critics all over.chiggerwood said:I cannot disagree with MovieBob any more than when it comes to Only God Forgives. How anyone can put that disjointed poorly directed, overwrought mess on even a runners up list is a mystery to me. The rest of the list was fine, but seriously, Only God Forgives?
That being said, anyone who saw it who wasn't a critic absolutely HATED it.
Probably some disconnect in what is being looked at as "good".
OT: Can't disagree with the list from what I saw this year, still trying to play catch-up though.
Ninja'd me, but only because I took too long.kumquatlich said:*shortened for brevity*
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
Pain and Gain is cool if you like GTA (for the satire at least) or something, you are shown a terrible story (as in bad morals) about terrible people but its from their perspective so it will try to convince you that they are right (the movie knows it and unless you are weak of mind you will never be rooting for them even if it seems like the movie wants you to, it doesnt).TheMemoman said:I haven't seen Pain & Gain, I actually consciously avoided it, so that was my shock entry for this list. But Pacific Rim!? Hell fucking yeah! I literally went all emoticon :O when that one popped-out! Most people don't get it, some think they're over it, but as a piece of action geek filmmaking, it's pure joy. I'm gonna watch it again!
Did Bob review Elysium? I forgot.Earthfield said:Wow, seeing Iron Man 3 as a runner up was really surprising, but I felt a bit left behind considering a couple of those movies weren't reviewed in Escape to the Movies. Oh, I know some of them are mentioned in depht in Intermission, but still, feels kinda weird to see movies in the list that didn't get the usual review.
I'm still waiting for You're Next since in my country wasn't released on Cinemas, I'm hoping for a domectic version by February.
EDIT: WAIT! Elysium didn't even appear or was it my imagination?
You know I really enjoyed the movie, even bought the 3D version after seeing it in the theater, but I've got to agree with you. It's a pretty much a by the numbers script.Zhukov said:Pacific Rim... yeah... no.
I thoroughly enjoyed the monster punching bits, but they were a tiny fraction of the movie. The rest was cliche, one-note characters spouting painfully trite dialogue at one another.
I don't get where people get this is some big revolution for Disney or some big one-eighty. Haven't they seen Tangled or Wreck-it-Ralph?Epic_Bubble said:I would of liked to see Frozen be a bit more higher especially as the only animation but also because its so revolutionary for Disney but at the same time being so restrained in Disney fashion.
Its a stunning animation and does highlight that Disney can still create great fairytails.
