American Sniper

3 stars

good character development, good movie, tend to be a bit biased due to the whole "he tolds lies" and was sued and lost. so what else were lies?

other than that.. great movie. (0 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

2.5 stars

bunch of heros beat on ultron.

ultron was not as powerfull as he should. some awkward wife for hawkeye (he's "nothing" so they had to add depth of some kind, felt forced)

america fights ultron 1on1, - ultron would just rip his arms off while let go once he has a hold of them?

some stupid other scenes a plenty.

over all a decent super hero movie? i guess..i think we're all just so happy to get these movies our standards are pathetic.. episode 1 set the precedent. marvel's kind of getting stale.

steve ditko and jack kirby are rolling around in their graves. (0 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

3.5 stars

Enjoyable flick. Ultron was definitely an entertaining villain, but I don't think that he was nearly powerful enough if he was supposed to be some kind of omnipresent Internet force.

Also, they kind of crammed too much stuff in here for my taste as a casual fan. But make no mistake, you can't go wrong with all these characters running around saving the world.....definitely a fun ride. (+2 tp)

American Sniper

Great movie. Bradley Cooper is really coming into his own right now. Powerful movie that I think does a good job at showing all the true costs of war, both in lives lost, and in consequences at home. I like how they really showed him to be a complex character. (+5 tp)

Interesting that kind of a Decktech cult favorite "Limitless" is becoming a TV (CBS I think).

If you saw the trailer it followed through. There is a bit of random evolution pictures/montage mixed in every so often as well. (0 tp)

Life of Pi (2012)

3.5 stars

I only watched this due to the reviews here. A fictional characters fictional life doesnt hold a lot of interest to me. Additionally, i hate ang lee

Better than i thought though. Incredible visuals and very well acted. Theme was a little outside of my style though; was never one to be into the jöb like "god is torturing you to make you find the truth" story. I dont buy it. I dont think god gets that involved, i think that is just looking for a silver lining in being tortured.

Nice to see real animals on the screen too. Thanks for the recommendation, decktechers (+2 tp)

Good review. Sounds like you think like me; spiderman 3 syndrome here. Just too much packed into one movie. Vision, witch/quicksilver, ultron

Avengers : Age of Ultron

4 stars

Great action movie and am looking forward to seeing it again. Overall, I think it was a very good and entertaining movie. I think the characters were true to form and I like what they did with Stark and Banner during the movie.

However, a couple of things that detracted:
1. As Neal alluded to, there were some parts that were hard to understand the first time around. Mainly the Thor dream stuff. Apparently Joss Whedon wanted to expand on that more but Marvel didn't want to.
2. Too much going on. Too many stories and characters to track. The whole Vision thing seemed forced to me. (+5 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

2 stars

I hate to be the naysayer, but i didnt care for this movie. Everything seemed forced; forced chemistry, forced romance and worst of all forced humor. Wasnt a fan of ulton either. Convuluted storyline and strange and confusing editing didnt help. Very very long too

Tony stark was the best part of the movie, but that was not enough to mKe up for all the jammed feel and lack of genuine feeling (-1 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

4.5 stars

Excellent in almost every way. Lots of action, lots of humor, exactly what I need from Marvel.

The characters were outstanding as well, the newcomers especially, and of course, there is more to come in future films.

Can't wait for more! (+5 tp)

Avengers was very, very good. Not a comic guy so no need to quibble about little stuff like Ultron having lips and stuff like that. LOL

Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

2 stars

disappointing, few good moments but nothing amazing like the original

actually even the original upon re-watch isnt as good as remembered.

the only movie that seesms to cut it from that era of movies is happy gilmore. (-1 tp)

You haven't seen the original Dumb and Dumber? I have no desire to see the sequel (or the pretend sequel that came before that), but the original is classic. If you like him, its Jim Carrey at his obnoxious best.

Has a very similar vibe to Walter Mitty ( break out of your mold, do some odd things to change or enjoy your current life more). I enjoyed it quite a bit. (+5 tp)
