the movie itself is a totally run-of-the-mill underdog story that was marketed as a video game movie, cooome on

there's a reason why Disney crammed Sega and SNES characters into the official trailer and posters. integral to the plot? as you say, not at all. in fact, they don't even do anything throughout the movie. they are there to be seen, and that's about it. the plot itself isn't at all engaging or even interesting, so Disney tossed in a few mega-obvious video game references and two or three easter eggs for the mega nerds, and people act as if the movie is more than just a really, really loud race movie

i love how the IMDB forum and so many topics about it on RT were almost exclusively about which characters should make the cameo in the inevitable sequel. nobody seems to have anything to say about the movie itself, because there is nothing to say about it. instead they are just talking about the Aeris reference and how they hope Mario jumps through a sewer pipe in 3d, or something


I don't think you understand what I was saying. I'm saying its good that they WEREN'T integral to the plot, which I really enjoyed. If you didn't thats your thing, but having Mario and Sonic running around as side characters would've totally sucked, no matter which way you look at it.

The Awakening - 3/10

Takes a lot to make a good supernatural/horror movie nowadays. Being original is so tough for that genre, that I feel as though if people don't get it right, they really get it wrong. I appreciate what the writers were going for, but it just wasn't very interesting and there were no scares at all. Rebecca Hall started out fine, but then got quite bad as the movie dragged on. Avoid.

Django Unchained - 7/10

Not really sure what to add that people haven't already said. I do like the idea, somewhat (but not really) similar idea that Tarantino had with Inglorious Basterds. Jamie Foxx was really good, and I really can't stand him usually. Christoph Waltz ok, but as others have said, incredibly similar character to his in Basterds (at least, the way he presented himself).

The standout character for me was Sam Jackson. Was expecting his character to be a minor role, like in the last few Tarantino films. However, he really was prominant here, and absolutely stole all the scenes that he was in.

That's with Cruise and Freeman, right? I might just be the only person in the world that doesn't like Morgan Freeman.

It would have been a whole lot better without the unnecessary 30 minute long Quentin Tarantino gun fight.

You're joking right? Thats part of what makes Tarantino movies so great, the over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek violence. His movies are all about fun.

Why would I be joking? I am a fan of Tarantino but I was not a fan of the last scene in Django Unchained.

I have to agree, and totally forgot to put that in my review of Django. The whole last 30 minutes seemed incredibly out of place when compared to the rest of the movie, and it all started with Christoph Waltz's character. So I don't spoil it, but it all started with the last decision he made. Completely out of character for him to make that decision, based on how calculated and careful he was for the whole film.It's not that the gun fight was not entertaining, I just think that the film would have been infinitely better if it were handled differently.

Iron Man 3 was released here in the Philippines on April 24th. I was very excited to watch this film but ended up being somewhat disappointed. RDJ was his usual awesome self, and I liked the chemistry he had with the kid, but the rest of the film seemed rather forced. Perhaps I'm guilty of expecting too much from a marvel superhero movie.

I was expecting it to be a spoof on Zack and Miri make a porno, not an actual porno. That said, I was pleasantly surprised. Would watch again.

I know, it still was incredibly out of character and nearly ruined the entire plan. It also set the next 30 minutes to be an all out war, which again, was not in line with the rest of the film.

Believe me, I enjoyed Django. I just feel as though Tarantino missed an opportunity to really create an even better film, had he thought of another way to end it, rather than go his typical, safe route.

First time watching it. Definitely holds up to films today. Didn't know how it would end going in, expected something a little different, but still like it nonetheless.

I'm always pumped when Wilfred Brimley pops up in something.
