@DwatsSorry if you felt that way, you are entitled to your opinion. If you read through my review you will see that I reference the other Jackass films as comparison and have positive things to say about the franchise and genre of the films."While the Jackass franchise was not everyone’s cup of tea, I
enjoyed the mindless humor, antics, and social interaction that was
present in all of the films."Also my take on the plot was that it was wasted time and added unneeded time to the film. I did not discredit the film for its poor plot, it was because the plot took away from the film's purpose. I enjoyed/enjoy many slapstick comedies and films like this, the other Jackass films, Borat, Bruno, etc. Just because a film falls into this category it doesn't mean it should not be critiqued. I offer an opinion and if you don't agree with my opinion that's fine, but if you are going to disagree, at least disagree with an intelligent response rather than resorting to insults, otherwise it just discredits your own opinion.

@Nada Superman is more than Christopher Reeve, and he wasn't the first to take the role, just the most memorable. Superman was established in the comic book long before Reeve. By your logic you would be asking Hollywood to dismiss any attempt at any adaptation or re-imagining of any iconic character. Adam West was popular as Batman, followed by Michael Keaton who redefined the role, followed by a Schumacher slump, and then a complete re-imagining of the franchise by Christopher Nolan.If you ask someone to stop aspiring to something greater, you are preventing them from becoming a master of their craft. Who knows what the future will bring for these characters? Sure Hollywood exploits the hell out of these cash-cows now, but somewhere along the lines, the public is going to see the next re-imagining that redefines their expectations of the role.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

I wouldn't care what race they are as long as it's consistent. If Johnny is one race and Sue is another then there is an issue explaining their biological relationship as siblings. I personally want Sue and Johnny as brother/sister, Reed and Sue as husband/wife or lovers, and Ben as Reed's best friend. That dynamic relationship builds towards what the Fantastic Four are.

@Elliot Hopper If they are smart, then the chances are good. If you have a bunch of disconnected villains with different motives we're going to run into another "Spider-Man 3" problem. If all of these villains are going to pose a threat, they need to form an alliance around a single goal so that there isn't loads of side plots that are rushed through.

@eris15487 I apologize, apparently the "haha" afterwards was not enough of an indicator to show the apparent sarcasm in that statement.

@CoreyV I agree with you Corey, the book is difficult to adapt to film. The format doesn't translate to a script like other novels do.
6 months ago on Review: World War Z entertains visually but lacks intimacy with its audience
@burywmore I didn't mention Cinemascore at all nor did I use it to gauge any sort of review of the film. If you don't like the film that's fine, but you need to at least make a case for your argument.Your argument is that the script fails because it lacks realism regarding destruction versus the loss of life and Superman is a moron for bringing villains to the city.I think you need to watch the film again and come back with another argument. First, there was life lost, they showed it as buildings collapsed, cars were overturned, etc. If you're looking for a bloodbath then yes, you're correct, the streets should have been covered in blood and gore but I don't think that would be too appealing for what this film is trying to accomplish.As far as Superman bringing the villains to Metropolis, their own agenda brought them there. I won't reveal any spoilers but if you watch the film again, you'll see what I'm talking about.

@Elliot Hopper Thanks Elliot. I totally agree with what you said. I actually had a lot more written going into the contradictory critiques of Superman Returns and the level of action, but then I realized I was going into the territory of writing a second review...haha.I decided to keep it short and concise to hopefully get some conversation going with our readers and hear their opinions as well.
Nice review Elliot, it's sad that this is receiving better reviews than Man of Steel.

I'm actually interested in seeing this. I loved the first and was disappointed with the second, I'm hoping for good things with this one. Thanks Kenny.

For everyone commenting on the "First Blockbuster" section of the title, realize that I am speaking figuratively making a statement that Star Trek surpasses the other blockbuster this year, Iron Man.

@Matrixlord212 Didn't forget about Iron Man 3, I just think that this film should be the "first" true blockbuster in comparison.

@Alan316 Like I said, we appreciate any comments good or bad. Thanks for your input, we do appreciate true discussion. Based off your points though, I can agree with you to an extent. When writing for the viewers who know nothing about than the film other than media circulating the web, there are areas of the review that will be vague.
From your perspective, you could also argue that the trailers for the film itself are misleading by misrepresenting characters in the film which is worth addressing.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Iron Man 3 Mega Review
@Alan316 I think proper grammar could be your friend as well. What I've gathered from your grammatically challenged rant is that you think we are blogging from our yachts sipping champagne and that we missed one of the most apparent and controversial elements of the film.We are aware of The Mandarin, what he represents in the film, and why he is what he is in the film. The reason we do not go into detail about The Mandarin as he is represented in the film is because that is a MAJOR SPOILER and it is not fair to reveal that to our readers. If you would like a plot synopsis please check out a spoiler site.We encourage disagreement and expect it as these are our opinions. What we hope is that we give our readers an informative analysis prior to their viewing. If our opinion is in line with the thoughts of the reader then great, but if not then we still encourage discussion which is what we love. Feel free to challenge us at any point, we love to read your comments, good or bad, just please properly prepare your comments by fully reading the post so you don't miss something. Thanks.
@JamesM Totally agree with you Jim. I saw the post while I was away from the computer and flagged it as a reminder to delete it when I got back. That kind of language is not something we stand for and in fact I banned the user from commenting again. Thanks for your continued support of The Movie Blog!
