@uhublue Wolverine is their biggest mutant cash cow. The same thing happens in the comics. Im pretty sure there are like 12 comics published a month featuring Wolverine right now. He's proven to be so popular that Marvel decided that he needed to just up and start his  very own X-men team  and mutant school that he leads and head masters but Marvel also went as far as to put him in their current flagship ensemble and made him an Avenger. I'd like to see more mutants but I guess their approach is working for them financially so it may be a while before they shake things up again.

@JamesM Wow. Took me forever to reply.  I was just talkin about this post and I finally remembered!


Anyway, nothing is wrong with Bullock. I just don't need to see her teaming with someone in a 'buddy' setting. Looking back at films in which she shared billing and you see an ugly mess:

The Heat (hated it)

The Blind Side (really hated it)

All About Steve

The Proposal - which actually OK

The Lakehouse

She's much better outside of this environment. I'm really looking forward to seeing Gravity and if it can buck the trend by pairing with Clooney.

@JamesM @Kenny Miles Great movie. I really enjoyed the tank scene too. The movie did a good job rebuilding interest in the Dom/Letty romance and tapered it off with a lot of off-the-wall action that this series thrives from. 

Every once in a while the random unbelievable scenes like this remind me that the film isn't trying to be 'real' just 'real fun', and that works for me.

Good movie. Chris Pine was able to flex his growth as an actor and was a better Kirk than he was in the first film. Karl Urban was a better Bones, Zoe Saldana and Simon Pegg's performances were also improved, welcome, and enjoyable. I'm not 100% with Cumberbatch but my mixed feelings on that didn't take away too much from the film overall. 

The visuals are really what drove it home and made this a fun summer movie. Good review!

@Dan_Bam For some reason I couldn't help but focus on that peculiar expression on his face.It's incredibly nostalgic to see Jackman back in that familiar setting but it also made me realize that this is Jackman's 13th year with Wolverine which is actually quite a long time!

Reply

@The Dev 

1) Wolverine is not ageless, just looks really good for his age.

2) I seriously doubt that you have read more Wolverine comics than me. Seriously.

3) You need to re-read this post. I didn't say Jackman doesn't look the part anymore, I said he's been playing the role for 13 years and someone else might be able to bring something fresh to the character. Hugh Jackman isn't the only man in the world who can portray Wolverine in the same sense that Christian Bale isn't the only guy who can play Batman. I agree in that he's a great Wolverine, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't recast him or Storm and a few other characters.

@JamesM I'll explain: I want the reader to understand my journey with Oblivion without just giving you a summary. My stance on what I considered "Good" and "Bad" can both be found above. On one hand Oblivion is a nice polished culmination of some neat ideas, and on another hand Oblivion is littered with cringe inducing story issues. I tried not to dwell too much on the negatives because, in my opinion, that's what I took from the movie. I hope my score helps you understand that the issues are mostly forgiven due to polish so thick that film shined through.

@kunalsigtia You may be right, but in this instance the guidelines are for 'comments'. 

In hindsight I realize that this may be interpreted incorrectly. For the most part I avoid using profanity on the site and when it does appear I typically use it as a PG-13 adjective. Anyway, it can happen. The commenting rules are for the purpose of avoiding an altercation of words in the comments.

Yes, a No-Prize!!! Never e-mail or contact us about shipping methods, or delivery time, just cross your fingers and be patient. The No-prize knows what to do all on its own.

I saw this movie and I loved it. It wasn't perfect and all throughout the film I kept getting the impression that James Franco's Oz was written with Robert Downey Jr. in mind.  A lot of the dialog within the film Oz seemed like it could have been enhanced or could have been delivered better. I didn't like the inconsistency with the acting either, with some scenes delivered in a very campy and over the top way while others were more serious and subdued   It's like the movie didn't have a consistent identity and would switch between a unrealistic film with a serious tone to something a lot more juvenile. The delivery and performances echoed this inconsistency as well with only Rachel Weisz providing the only "constant" that wasn't CGI.


Aside from those complaints the movie struck all the right chords and connected with the Wizard of Oz film in a great way, and left the door open to continue to explore the life of Oz the Great and Powerful. I loved that Raimi made sure the camera shots and scenes were constantly moving, which is a treat for those folks watching in 3D giving the effect of watching something "on rails". I also liked the musical score, but it sounded like unused production from his Spider-Man trilogy.


Overall the film is a lot of fun and definitely worth checking out!

@JamesM I think it's entirely possible, and that it all depends on the approach of the story. 21 Jump Street is a stretch of an example of how a story can rekindle with some clever reinvention.

 @JuanCervantes The easiest way is to use promotional images released directly by the studios. You can usually find these on official movie sites, and occasionally through special press sites created just for journalists and bloggers.
