Because 8-year-old son.
The girls are hot.
A huge bag of chocolate popcorn was consumed, along with an even bigger soda.
Script is predictable, conflict is non-existent, character depth is thinner than the paper used to print out movie tickets.
I bought my kid the big popcorn bucket shaped like the red ranger's helmet.
The kid had fun, so it was worth it. :)

Nothing spectacular but I thought it was a fun watch. I saw someone describe it as "Good Will Hunting" meets "John Wick," and it kind of fits.

It was okay, great visually.

It lost some of the symbolism and subtlety of the original, yeah. :(

I feel like they developed characters a little more. Like...I never really felt that connected to the protagonist in the original. Also, I think they did a better job of

making a more interesting look at the differences between "good" and "bad" character motivations and how it's not so clear.


Honestly, in a few ways, I see it a lot like The Shining. Both the book and the movie have their differences (I mean...there's no snow maze in the book...can you imagine the movie without it?) but I think they are each better for them.

Just saw Ghost in the Shell tonight. I really liked its visuals and it was very well cast, especially with Takeshi Kitano having a decent role in it. It's been so long since I watched the original, that I can't yet comment on the possible westernizing of the story.

I didn't saw it yet, but I thing that Scarlet is not very good for that role. Or was she? I think for Ghost In A Shell they should have find someone more special, interesting, more athletic, not a Hollywood Star.

Even the girl from Wonderwoman would have been a better choice I think.

But I still have to see it and see for my self.

Yeah, that one can't really act all that good. And I bet she can't even get rid of that accent.
Scarlet did a great job, and she looks great physically, if a bit short :D

I'm talking only about the looks now, not acting :D

The Fast and the Furious is alright.
2 Fast 2 Furious I actually like... its nonsense but, they all are.
Tokyo Drift is hot garbage, I've seen it once and it was 2 many times.

4 onwards are a different franchise altogether. I've done nothing so far this Easter weekend, so I might as well watch 4-7. :|
