I saw that movie too

I like when fate/destiny/god is cast as the enemy
I liked this movies personification of that too

But, again, the ending disappointed me
Its a deus ex machina, its the very deffinition of deus ex machina
The chairman couldve done that at any point
I would accept it with an explanation like "well they had to go through all that for him to do that" but no, they said that the plan had been that way from the beginning, but that it changed and thats why all this is happening now

Its like if i said "heres $50" then you were like "Neutral" then i said "wait no, nvm", and you were like "Neutral" then later i said "oh yeah, heres that $50 from earlier but its at the bottom of a tiger pit, gl", and you were like "Shocked" then once you get mauled by tigers i pull you out of the den and be like "LOLs, i just be trollin, heres your $50"


Overall though, it was pretty good
If you just ignore that part

i saw thor and it wasnt bad but to me he adjusted to earth too easily, there wasnt even any cheesy jokes about cars being steel demons or anything

the thing after the credits was niftyish

i also saw pirates and it was good but would have been better if they had tried less to be like the old ones

its like they wanted to go a different direction but were scared so they tried to fit in all the old money makers


going to go see kung fu panda 2 tonight woo! llol

Yea I want to see thor and pirates. The lack of bad jokes is a good thing, we don't want another revenge of the fallen. And with pirates 4 i hear it's the best one after the 1st one of couse.

i saw bridesmaids the other day. it was 1 of the funniest things ive ever seen. if you're being forced to go to a chick flick, this is actually a pretty good one.
Spoiler:
 

i also saw due date (on dvd)
its not new, but it came out some time this year.
it was also really funny, especially if you like zack galifinakas
robert downy jr was also damn good

x-men: first class was great

the first one was great, the second one was decent and the third was not terrible

origins was decent

except the girl mystique usually was running around as was pretty ugly, but luckily there were plenty of other scenes with girls in their underwear so it turned out alright

oh and there was some action stuff too

whaaaaaaaat

the plot of x-men first class was pretty good
but the dialog was around the same level as the star wars 1-3

i hadn't seen any of the x-men in a few years so it was kinda fun figuring out who was who. but it wasnt quite fun enough to get the "want to kill yourself rather than watch the rest" taste out of your mouth

im not even gonna talk about magneto as a kid raging
actually i lied i am:
 

all that aside i enjoyed it =)

I had the opportunity to see bridesmaids but avoided it because of the name, but i have heard good things, i might watch it

The hangover 2 was almost exactly the same as the first movie, just a bit darker
The ending (again, its always the ending) shouldve been darker, it wouldve worked and if they went that route i wouldve enjoyed it alot more, as it is its basically a copy and paste of the first movie

I really dont want to see x-men first class
The last x-men movie was bad, and this one seems to be sorta the same kind of thing
Maybe with even more retcon
I might give it a chance because of what you guys are saying here (everyone i know doesnt want to see it for the same reason i dont, so i havent heard anything about it)

I'm hearing from eveyone that it's amazing unlike X-men 3 and the first origens, which sucked. first class is at 87% on rotten tomatoes, and a 8.3 on imdb, so rating wise it's pretty good.

I dont know about rotten tomatoes, but IMDB's ratings on recently released movies are always very high and they go down by th first week.

from what i know about the definition of retcon there was only one thing in the movie that i felt was "retcon" and i think it was only retcon to origins so i guess its ok?

it was better telling the backstory for Xavier and magneto then they did for wolverine

origins for wolverine felt more of a standalone movie about wolverine where as first class felt more like a prequel for Xavier and magneto

Retcon is when something that is already established previously in a story is changed or added to later on
It can be good, but more often then not its bad
Good retcon is usually referred to as a plot twist (but not all plot twists are retcon), it can also be good to retcon something that was bad

They retconned a ton of stuff in xmen origins, so much so that they needed to wipe wolverines memory so that it wouldnt retcon the first movie (cause if he remembered, the events in the xmen 1 wouldnt make sense)

If they didnt wipe his memory then i would see it as its own standalone thing (only because i wouldnt accept the first movie being retconned), but they did wipe his memory so that he would be like he was in the first movie, so it obviously isnt standalone

When the only way to get everything to mesh together with the story is to completely erase a characters memory, you know something went wrong with the writing

what i meant by standalone was that it didnt feel like any kind of prequel, more like a side story

like in other media when a character that is normally a side character gets elaborated and gets their own book/movie/comic

i cant even remember what i was going to say or where i was going



basically go see first class, it was much better than origins or the 3rd movie

It was supposed to be a prequel though, it has origins in the name
And wolverine isnt a side character

And like i said before, i might give first class a chance cause of what you guys were saying

first class wasn't a good movie
it wasn't even a decent movie

it was an enjoyable movie however
but if you're one of those people who need the movie to be good to feel justified in going to see it, then i wouldnt

otherwise you might as well
dont take sarah to it though, she'll probably think its stupid

seriously just go to bridesmaids
it was one of the funniest things ive seen in a long time

Secondly Hangover two wasn't bad, but what the fuck
Spoiler:

There was also some obvious plot holes that didn't make sense - don't really need to go into detail.

Going to go see the x-men movie probs soon lol
