My only problem with Captain America was that they chose Hugo Weaving for the villain... It's hard for me to take Agent Smith/Elrond seriously as a Nazi...

I liked all of the early stuff in Iron Man 2. The lighthearted stuff in the movie was better than in 1, but the rest was relatively weak.

Les Miserables was non-stop singing from beginning to end.


Isn't that what the Hobbit was as well? (Or so I've heard :pop: )

Went for Hobbit in regular vision.

Actually enjoyed it and it tied in things we know from the LOTR movies. Thought it set the stage well for the next two movies, stayed close to the book and never felt like nearly three hours. And yes, there was several songs, but that's how the book was too.

Pitch Perfect was actually kinda funny. Rebel Wilson makes me laugh.

..and Anna Kendrick is a good lookin' chick.

Rebel Wilson annoyed me in Bridesmaids, but after having seen her on a few talk shows, I think she's hilarious. Willing to give this film a shot.

Think of a really hot, unannoying girl. Then, picture the exact opposite, and you've got Rebel Wilson.

Pretty much.

Jj Abrams directing star wars

http://www.thewrap.com/movies/article/jj-abrams-set-direct-next-star-wars-film-exclusive-74596

J.J. Abrams will direct the next "Star Wars" film for Disney, taking stewardship of one of Hollywood's most iconic and lucrative film franchises, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.

"Argo" director Ben Affleck was also in contention, another individual with knowledge of the talks told TheWrap.


don't have a problem with him, thought super 8 pretty much blew after the train wreck, liked MI3 a lot, liked what he did for star trek. Seems like a nice safe pick for Disney. With a good writer, I think he'll do well. Affleck would have been the bomb though.

I don't think the world could've handled it being Affleck, even though he's 'legit' now. Agree Abrams is the safer choice -- I think Affleck would've garnered even more buzz though.

Super 8 was kind of like The Goonies meets ET, except the alien goes on a murder spree.

As I'm not really a fan of 80's spielberg, I didn't really like super 8

i dont know about abrams at all. im not particularly interested in seeing blasters and lightsabers causing lens flares every time one streaks across the screen. there must have been one every 4-7 seconds in the star trek into darkness trailer.

If the script is good, Abrams will do well. It depends on how much Lucas meddles with the film...

Abrams did an exceptional job with Star Trek IMO. I am looking forward to his work on Star Wars.
