Jurassic Park 3D
Usually I don't bother with money grab stuff, but I really love Jurassic Park. It's one of my earliest movie going experiences I can remember. So to see it on the big screen again was just great. And even though I've seen the film a dozen times, there were details I never noticed and even pieces of dialog I somehow missed.
I went Tuesday morning, hoping for it to not be crowded. I ended up having the whole theater to myself. :lol:
That's weird because I thought Iron Man 3 brilliantly adapted and stayed faithful to the the Extremis storyline. I thought the film was more darker and serious than the past 2 Iron Man films.Iron Man 3 is the best one yet.
I'll throw in the disclaimer "for me" simply because I really love the fact Shane Black has pretty much ignored the themes and tone of the previous Marvel films and basically cherry picked the best elements of his past work (Lethal Weapon, Long Kiss Goodnight, The Last Boy Scout etc etc) and chucked in some super heroes. I can however understand if anyone is put off by this change in direction.
An extremely entertaining movie that is almost a throwback to the best action comedies of the 80's and early 90's.
Ditto. But if you simply did the Extremis storyline on its own, you'd have a 20 minute movie.That's weird because I thought Iron Man 3 brilliantly adapted and stayed faithful to the the Extremis storyline. I thought the film was more darker and serious than the past 2 Iron Man films.
Woah...better than Alien 3???Prometheus
I was really excited about this film last year before it came out, but the less-than-positive reviews put me off seeing it. I found it on bluray for $9 so I decided to give it a chance. There is something to be said about how big an influence your expectations can have, because I really wasn't expecting to like the film, but I ended up enjoying it quite a bit. It wasn't quite as good as the first or second Alien films, but I definitely put it up there well above the third and forth. The only thing I didn't really like was the "twist" with the engineer at the end. Having them become the "bad guys" failed to impress me, but obviously they're setting the film up for a sequel, so who knows.
I'd say you'd be ok to read Extremis before seeing Iron Man 3. It doesn't really spoil much. I'd actually recommend Extremis anyway since it features brilliant artwork by Adi Granov (who went on to help design the look of the Iron Man suits).Is it OK to read Extremis beforehand jedd? Or does it spoil it?
I was just reading about it and no, I haven't. The DVD box set I bought last year had the theatrical version, for some reason. I'll try and watch it, but since it's not on Netflix stream or whatever, it'll be a while. I can't see myself spending much money just to see a different cut and a few added scenes.Have you seen the Director's Cut? It is way better than the theatrical version!
