I caught Godzilla last week... I enjoyed the parts with Bryan Cranston and the final 20 minutes but man did the middle blow. The guy who plays the main character reeeeeeeally needs to rethink a career in Hollywood.

Worst part: The scene set in 1999 that features a kid playing with a 2004 LEGO Snowspeeder. Do they REALLY think they can get away with BS like that?

Let me guess:  your favorite part of Argo was the end credits sequence with the vintage Early Bird kit and X-Wing, right?

That actually WAS my favorite part of that movie!

Jupiter Ascending moved to Feb 2015

They're claiming they need to "finish the effects," but typically when a movie is switched from a summer release to a February release, it means it's awful.  The trailers looked pretty, but other than that they never did anything for me.

Seems like the Wachowskis really only had one good movie in them.

It was originally scheduled to come out the week after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and two weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy, both of which will do huge business. It stood no chance, and probably still won't in February for the reasons Bill gave.

I saw Edge of Tomorrow this evening with my wife. Not a "amazing" movie - but still a fun sci-fi popcorn flick.

While it is definitely like the Sci-fi/Starship Troppers version of Groundhog Day - the concept behind WHY he keeps repeating the same day is pretty cool - definitely helped me enjoy it a bit more than I thought I would going in.

Every movie has a downside.
