I didn't think the first was as great as everyone makes it out to be, so not really expecting much from this IF i go see it.

Aim for the eyes!  We're heading out to see Catching Fire tonight.  I hear good things so far.

I saw the Robocop remake this afternoon. I wish more people had given this movie a chance. It was really enjoyable. It shares a lot of the same thematic elements from the original, but it takes the story in a different direction so you are left with this feeling of "okay, this is familar, but what are they going to do different next?"

There are great references and send-ups to the original film. The scene where Robocop's creator shows Murphy what's left of him was cool.

Definitely not "high art" but worth seeing if you are a fan of the original.

Just my $0.02

It was ok.  Big fan of robo 1 & 2 so had to see.

What was left of Murphy was disturbing to say the least.  Glad to see ED209 back and in force - not just falling down stairs and shooting innocent people.  Was also nice to see Murphy back in his original non-batman colors at the end of the movie.

I would buy it for $1.00.

Maybe not the type of movie that is typically discussed here, but this has generated some excitement in our household.  First teaser trailer for Peanuts (2015):

Good Grief!  Well, it is Blue Sky doing it so it won't be too bad. I hope it's as good as Race for your life, Charlie Brown.

First teaser trailer for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie:

http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/03/27/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-official-trailer

Not a whole lot to see.  It is definitely....different, but I'm trying to reserve judgement for now.  My daughter is so into the turtles now I hope that it is good, but we'll see.  I remember loving the original Turtles movie (and even the second one) when I was a kid, although I'm not sure how well they still hold up.  The current Nick toon is pretty great though.

I saw the trailer for Godzilla in a theater today.  It played really well on the big screen.  And it left me wanting to see the movie in the theater.

As for what I saw today?  It was 300 - Rise Of An Empire.  From a stylistic standpoint it took a lot from the first 300.  However, because 300 was so stylized there seems to have been a danger of a sequel looking like a parody of the first film.  Certainly that seemed to be the case with the Spartacus series on Starz.

As for the movie itself?  A number of the cast returned in varying capacities.  That gave this movie a lot of continuity with the first film.  And the Spartans were referenced heavily in this movie, which appears to have run almost parallel to the events of 300.  As for new cast, like Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green?  Stapleton took a different tack than Gerard Butler as the lead of this movie, and it works.  And Eva Green?  WOW!  The 3-D was VERY kind to her.  If you've seen the movie you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.  I've liked her ever since I saw Kingdom of Heaven, and I have to say I like her a whole lot more now!

Overall, I think this is one of the first 3-D movies I've seen in some time where it really works well for the film.  The stylization that set apart the first film and was echoed in this one really lends itself well to the 3-D process.  So if you liked the first film, consider checking this one out while it's still in theaters.

I have a bad feeling about this...

That movie better be PG or they are completely out of touch with their core TV show audience of 6-10 year olds.

I'm sure there will be plenty of references to testicles with M. Bay's involvement.

Just got back from seeing Godzilla & it left me wanting to run out of the theater half way thru. Good god that was a bad flick! I rate it on a scale from 1-10 a 2 that is being kind.
1 point up from Broderick's Godzilla. As for a sequel. meh!
