Beyond him giving off carbon dioxide for the planet's foliage I have a hard time picturing Adam Sandler as useful for anything.

Hyde Park on the Hudson would have been a lot better/interesting if they focused on the king/queen visit rather than affair.

Rise of the Guardians was so much better than the trailers led it to be,no wonder it didn't do well, someone should be fired over that. Really great family movie. The books are great as well

I doubt I'll like it less next time I watch it. All the hype forced me to pay attention pretty closely. There wasn't a single weak acting performance, nor was there a single cheese ball piece of dialogue. That's extremely rare.

We may disagree on a variety of topics, but on this we are in complete agreement. I bet you feel dirty now.

The parody genre is dead. The mistake that all these filmmakers make now is that instead of trying to parody an entire genre while creating distinct characters of their own, they just try to literally re-create shot for shot scenes of the movie that they're parodying. "Hey, look, it's that scene from (X Movie), and they're making a piss joke instead of what really happened in the original movie, HAR HAR HAR".

Star Trek was great. If you liked the first one, go see this one. Another job well done incorporating the "other" Star Trek Universe and this one.

Side note: I know that a movie (specifically ones like this) would be really boring if it wasn't there, but sounds of explosions, engines firing, basically any sound at all in space is not realistic. What would a battle sound like in space? Nothing. It would be sound free.

I'll accept explosions in space, but my biggest (and probably most retarded) pet peeve in any movie is when tires squeal on dirt roads, THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

Finally got around to watching "Les Misérables" on ye BluRay. This is coming from an abashed fan of the stage musical, so.......

Spoiler:
I was totally fine with most of the changes made to the libretto and staging, the additions, and the spoken dialog. However, one thing was almost singularly terrible: Russell Crowe. The man's voice was soft and wimpy. Javert is supposed to have an unearthly bellow, which makes the contrast with Valjean's more soaring vocals the more sharp, and gives the Inspector a menace. The fact that the he was singing in the same voice as Valjean, especially during the confrontation scene after Fantine dies, totally gutted the tension that was supposed to be in the vocal lines. It was just two dudes singing while they fought. Which was kinda dumb. Every time I saw him appear on screen, it made me sad.

But I was a hot mess when Fantine sang "I Dreamed A Dream". That was some good stuff, wow. And I quite liked how Thénardier went from a houh-houh-houh outrageous French accent to the more acceptable "stage Cockney-French" mid-performance. I thought that was actually kinda funny. Overall he and HBC did pretty credible jobs. The standout vocal performance was Samantha Barks, which I guess is to be expected as she actually played the role (Éponine) on stage. Hugh Jackman did a pretty fantastic job as well, but it was a real treat seeing Colm Wilkinson (the original stage Valjean) as the Bishop of Digne.
