Critically it was very well-received, but people I know who've seen it all say it was pretty poor.

It's why I haven't bothered getting round to watching it yet, I'm sure I'll catch it at some point. Bit of an oddity perhaps.

the first 5 mins is superb with the use of old paintings to tell a legacy but the whole concept is just ridiculous

I was not going to see it but I was voted down. I have checked out of Marvel films and it looks like I will check out of DC films

I was enraged mate :lol: It reminded me of Simple Jack's haircut from Tropic Thunder. I was enjoying it pretty much until the aliens appeared, which is odd. I felt it just went downhill after that.

I thought Wonder Woman was quite good, certainly better than some of the Marvel stuff that Disney have been churning out.

WW was better than anything Marvel churned out with the exception of deadpool. But then again, I might think BvS is one of the best mainstream superhero movies in many years so... yeah ;)

Passengers

I was actually enjoying it right up until fucking constant resting bitch face Jennifer Lawrence turned up and ruined it all. God she's irritating to the max. The alone time he had and the interactions between Chris Pratt and Michael Sheen were possibly my favourite bits.

Spoiler: show
Laurence Fishburne's bit was completely phoned in and just all out terrible. Hard to believe this was the same guy who once played the coolest Dad ever as Furious Styles back in Boyz n the Hood.

So vexing that the very same visionary who brought us the original movie also played out to be the one who brought about its lowest point.

Just to counter point the over the top nitpicking.

Disclosure: Yet to see the movie, yet to watch this video, but dude is usually on point with his opinions.
Will see the film next Monday. Will give my own thoughts then. :P

Lowest point is kind of harsh, it definitely has some good bits in it.

So Cloud Atlas.

If any of you haven't seen and have Prime its on there now.

I know people don't like this movie but I think its definitely one of my favourite films. The story just rings with me for whatever reason and I love the characters and seeing them in different guises throughout the ages. It can be really lighthearted and funny one minute and pretty damned dark and sobering the next.

I don't think films this good and different come along all that often anymore, so the writer and the makers should be applauded for bringing a difficult and complex book to the screen. The music is great too.

Heres the Extended trailer with the music and such - its got 20 odd million views which I suppose says something.
