I went Sunday at Noon and there were still a good amount of people.
It was nice and quiet though besides a few cheers and laughs at certain points. It was a pleasant movie going experience. haha
Thats rare these days.

I wonder how they're going to do Captain America 2, Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 without having all the Avengers involved.

This is a good point. Because like, if Iron Man is fighting some menace that is threatening the world in IM3, why the fuck would he not call up Thor for a little help?

It is a good question. Maybe the other movies take place before Avengers?

I heard Captain America 2 is going to be about him getting used to the time change.
Which sounds like a bad comedy.

I guess Thor 2 could happen because he'll be in all kinds of different worlds. The others can't really follow him there.

The Last Picture Show
This is a movie from 1971 that stars a very young Jeff Bridges. It actually focuses on 3 main characters. Bridges is kind of a loose cannon and he's dating the hot chick in school Jacy Farrow (Cybill Shephard). Man, I can't believe Cybill used to be hot. Anyway, they have their ups and downs. Meanwhile the other buddy Sonny (Timothy Bottoms) is just going through the motions of a normal teen, until he starts a relationship with the coach's wife (a kind of young Cloris Leachman). The movie is kind of all over the place and goes through time quickly. Cybill is a good little Christian girl until a young Randy Quaid takes her to a skinny dipping party. Then she becomes obsessed with sex and bangs a bunch of dudes. Bridges gets mad and joins the Army. And Sonny is left in what becomes a ghost town. The picture show in the title is a local movie theater in the small town that is shutting down. Its like the only thing to do in this shit box town in Texas. Its kind of a coming of age tale but its so old fashioned that its hard to follow at times. And its a little long, over 2 hours. The first half was enjoyable but then it just drags. Adequate amounts of nudity though from Cybill and some other chicks. The sex scenes were hilariously terrible. I don't think they could show thrusting in the old days so the guys kind of just laid on top while the women made faces. It was semi-enjoyable. I only watched it because Bridges was nominated for an Oscar.

Shame
This came out last year and its about Michael Fassbender being a sex addict. Dude hangs dong. His weiner is flappin around a few times and the guys got nothing to be ashamed of. haha But the story is really about him having a problem. He jerks off all the time, hires prostitutes, has one night stands and loves him some porn. But then his musician sister (Carey Mulligan) shows up to live with him for a while and it screws up his already fucked up life. She's the opposite of him, getting attached to every guy she gets involved with. So he tries to control his urges and even have a normal relationship with a woman from work but he can't do it. And this causes a lot of tension between him and his sister. Don't be turned off by the dong shots, there's plenty of nude women and graphic sex scenes to go around. Its kind of a fucked up movie but its really good. Fassbender is awesome in it. This probably would have made my Top 10 of last year if I actually saw it in time.

I'm curious about this movie but don't think I'll ever watch it. So just ruin the ending for me. Does he still want to bang everything in sight?

He gets in a huge fight with his sister (who has problems and slit her wrists before). she tells him how he has no feelings.
after the fight, he goes out on a ridiculous sex binge. banging everything in sight and getting into some really weird stuff. he keeps ignoring his sisters calls and finally listens to the voicemails where she's really upset. he rushes home and she's all bloody in the bathroom. she survives though and he finally feels something for her.
but at the end he's on the subway and makes eye contact with some chick he saw early in the movie but lost her, and she kind of smiles and flirts. and it ends with him just having a blank stare as she kind of motions to get off the train, assuming he's going to go rail her and nothing changed.

Had the house to myself tonight so I got to go see...

The Avengers

I quite liked it a lot! I mean, the entire plot is about as by the numbers as you can get. You can see every single story beat coming a mile away, but it works because the cast and writing are strong enough that its just entertaining regardless of the dumb as bricks plot.

I think nailing that part of it was also probably the biggest challenge. You know, when you watch all the movies these guys came from, thematically they're all very different. They're all shot different from each other, they look different from each other. You don't just watch them and think "Okay yeah, these are in the same universe." So to make all those characters click really is quite the feat. Iron Man is acting like Iron Man, Cap acting like Cap, they're all playing their parts the way they should. The only one that's a bit of a wild card is The Hulk. He's been changed quite a bit to work here, and it is certainly for the better. Hulk is easily the secret best part of the entire movie.

Casting Ruffalo was a really smart choice. I don't think Norton could have played this Hulk, and looking at the way he was written, I'm assuming this is why Norton became a big bitch and wanted out because of creative differences. Good. Ruffalo had fun as Banner, and he just carried a completely different persona while still staying true to the spirit of what makes him tick. He's almost like a hot headed Peter Parker here, not so much a dead serious dude on the run. He has a certain charm to him, as both Banner and Hulk. There is a huge, HUGE build up to the first time he changes, and the pay off was just amazing. I also liked just how damn important he was to the plot as well.

I didn't care for Hawkeye or Black Widow. They both had some fun moments, but if they were smashed into pieces at some point during the film, I wouldn't have given a shit. I didn't really care about Thor either. I really wanted to watch Thor before seeing this, but now after having seen this, I don't really care to go back and watch it. I had enough Thor in this movie, I don't need to see more Thor. He's boring.

I also kind of respect how this movie just knew what it is, a big fun comic book film. It is not grounded in reality in the slightest, and they make the most of that. There are moments where it really does feel like a comic or cartoon just come to life. Stuff like the secret ending scene after the credits (the second one) just drives that point home even more. Oh yeah, and that long take toward the end that panned around all the action to each of the heroes was really impressive. It's not a "true" long take, there was obviously lots of compositing and transitions and different shots all being inserted into what seems to be one take, but it doesn't make it any less impressive.

So yeah, it's fun and worth watching. Certainly not mind blowing, but easily the most enjoyable film to come out of Marvel Studios next to the first Iron Man.

I finally watched Captain America tonight so I'm ready for the Avengers.

It was a pretty entertaining film. I wasn't really blown away by it or anything and the plot is pretty straight forward. It's just a pop corn movie that you just sit back and enjoy. Bison might have been the secret best part about the movie. The entire time, I was thinking about how he just walks through the rain drops. There were a couple of dumb things about the movie though. I get they pumped him full of blue crap and now he's strong. But just being taller and strong doesn't automatically make you a fighting machine. Why can Captain America all of the sudden a fighting machine? He had no idea how to fight as shown in the beginning of the movies. Being bigger and strong does not equate to fighting machine. That was just kind of dumb but whatever. Also the bomb planes that have the city names on them. In English no less. That was just ridiculous. The Red Skull might be the stupidest villian in these comic book movies yet. He's supposedly German yet he speaks to all his men in English with a terrible German accent. But I digress. I'll over look the whole German not speaking German thing. I know people are too lazy to read subtitles plus you'd have to get German actors which would have probably been a pain in the ass. Anyways, time for the Avengerrssssss. Now I just have to find free time.

The Super Soldier serum gives him the ability to do all of that shit, it doesnt just make him tall and big.

Yeah it's a fantasy comic book serum, not just some weird steroid that would also require you to train and shit.

That doesn't make any sense. Serums don't give you ability to fight. You get that by learning kung fu from a martial arts database that gets directly uploaded into your brain.

They give Spider-Man the ability to fight who said they can't do the same for Cap?

Spiderman was bitten by a radioactive spider so he inherited spider agility. His fighting isn't so much traditional fighting as he's just fast and agile like a spider. He does acrobatics and kicks the shit out of you. I get it's a comic and things just happen. I still just find it kind of dumb all of the sudden he can fight.

He was also trained as a Soldier in combat which some was shown on screen but I am sure they didn't want to go into THAT much detail.

Are you seriously arguing the effects of a fantasy serum? LOL. Also it seemed to be implied that weenie Chris Evans had the know how but not the physical gifts.

Undefeated
This is a documentary that just won an Oscar this past February. Its about a high school football team in Memphis, Tennessee. They attempt to have a winning season after years and years of losses and never a win in the playoffs. The story centers around the coach and three players. One player is a monster of a kid but he's dumb as a stump. So they help him with grades so he can play college football. Another kid is a hot head, always getting into trouble and getting suspended. And the third kid is really smart but gets injured and wants to play one last time before the season is over. The coach is very involved in all the kids' lives and stives to make them better people and better athletes. Its a goddamn good movie. Had its fair share of emotional moments too. Definitely worth a watch. And definitely deserving of an Oscar win. I wouldn't be surprised if they turned this story into an actual movie one day.

We Bought A Zoo
This is Cameron Crowe's latest movie from last year. Matt Damon is struggling to raise his 2 kids after his wife passes away. He quits his job and his son is expelled from school so they decide to try something new. They start looking at new houses and find the perfect one. Just so happens if you buy the house you also become owner of the adjoining zoo. The zoo has been shut down and they are trying to rejuvenate it. Scarlett Johansson is the zookeeper and she has a very limited staff still sticking around. Damon decides to do it. He always took on challenges throughout his life. So he blows all his money and strains his relationship with his son trying to get this zoo to open again. It sounds silly but its actually a good movie. I really enjoyed it. Great family story and some funny moments. Cameron Crowe has made some good stuff like Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire, Say Anything and Vanilla Sky. Glad to see him back after a bit of a downer with Elizabethtown and then a lengthy break from feature films.

Dark Shadows
http://www.moviewiseguys.com/2012/05/da ... eview.html

Pretty boring. Definitely has a soap opera type feel. Lots of characters, not necessarily all needed. Not many laughs but a few here and there. Tim Burton has been making some stinkers lately. Tried to be a new Beetlejuice but failed.

God Bless America
Actually God bless Bobcat Goldthwait, the man found something he was good at besides making silly noises and screaming. He's an excellent writer/director. I loved World's Greatest Dad with Robin Williams. A really dark comedy. And now with God Bless America he took Joel Murray and made him a man sick of all the bullshit in the world. He hates reality TV and assholes. So after finding out he has a brain tumor, he goes around killing everyone that annoys him. A young girl loves his cause and joins him. Its such a funny look at what pop culture is today. There are parodies of Real Housewives and My Super Sweet 16, and even EXTREME shock jocks. Murray doesn't even take shit from assholes talking during a movie. Its a really funny movie and a great commentary on our generation. Bobcat is the man. I definitely have to go back and check out his other two films Shakes the Clown and Sleeping Dogs Lie. Dark comedies are my favorite kind of movies and he's doing them right.

Immortals
This is a poor man's 300 but that doesn't mean its terrible. Actually it should have been called Decapitation the Movie. The new Superman Henry Cavill stars as a man looked upon by the gods to fight when a crazy King is looking to rule the world. The King is Mickey Rourke who is OK in the role, nothing spectacular, his usual creepy self. Cavill is pretty badass, look forward to seeing him as Superman even more now. The movie is like a mixture of 300 and Clash of the Titans. The gods are always interfering and whooping ass. Some really cool battles especially at the end when it flips between three separate fights. Lots of Zack Snyder style slow motion fighting which has been overdone but its still cool sometimes. Frieda Pinto was pretty hot as an oracle, she shows off those buns which was nice. It was getting a little boring and I was actually fighting off the sleepy eyes but the final scene was awesome and got me back into it. Glad I waited until DVD though.

I saw Bobcat on Bill Maher promoting this movie a couple weeks ago. He was really funny and I'm definitely interested in checking out the movie now.
