Well what can I say. The trailer was totally misleading, here I was thinking it was gonna be filled with scantily clad grecian woman amazing special effects, this was about the only time I was looking forward to the special effects as 'Greek Myth' can be done quite well.
But alas, boy was I wrong, it was some twisted script citing the legend of Hercules was exactly that- a legend. IMO it was a cheap trick for a low budget movie. Instead, we're bored with a few war scenes.
Thoroughly disappointing. Don't go and see this, you'll fall asleep. It was only marginally better than transformers.
nick, thanks for the heads up, but I've got not much to do today so I'm going to see it anyway... I'm a sucker for those type of scifi movies that are too far fetched to make me puke at the ridiculousness of it, and when I saw scarlett jonhansen was on the script I was already sold. heh.
Yeah I think the inbetweeners should be a good hoot too.
Guardians of the Galaxy -> very fun and great looking movie. The whole thing was very creative and extremely well done, first time in a long time I left the cinema wanting more. I would highly recommend it.
Sin City 2 -> Very interestingly styled movie, the visuals are stunning. But the stories are just "meh", very ordinary, and none of the characters are likeable and aren't particularly interesting.
Transformers: Age of Extinction. I was bouyed up by the fact that they replaced that silly Sam character but the movie was just sooo bad. So many questionable things in it, too, like that guy having sex with an underage girl. And what about Rachet! No spoilers so I won't go into any specifics but it was a bad movie.
Just saw the movie, Elysium. I'm glad I only paid $1.20 to get it from the library instead of full price in the theatre when it was released. The writers put almost no thought into this movie at all. There were plot holes you could fly a space station throough and the science was essentially non-existent although the commentary throws the term "Stanford taurus" around a lot. My son and I ended up pressing "pause" frequently to cry bullshit. Actually, that kind of got to be fun - more fun than the movie.
Saw the Hobbit finale. It's what I expected from reading the book - lots of fighting. Rewatched American Graffiti last night. It was while watching the credits that I noticed that Vic Spano was in it (he was a greaser who threatened Toad with a knuckle sandwich). He is currently an occasional guest on NCIS as FBI agent Tobias Fornell. He's really aged. I guess that means I'm getting older, too.
