Big Short was amazing and really entertaining. I actually use a few clips when teaching some topics from the era. Visual aids are more fun than me talking about it on some slide.

The Big Short (2015)

4.5 stars

I love movies about the GFC already, and this was one of the better. Good cast, and it drove home just exactly how out of control it all was in 2005. I loved the parts were some celebrity explained the complex financial instruments.

Even *I* didn't know what a synthetic CDS was lol. Crazy. A bit long, but highly recommended (+5 tp)

Excellent.
The only thing I wished they included was a way to stop the banks in the future or punish them. (+5 tp)

Burger, thanks for the ghostbusters review. I was almost talked into seeing it, went with my instinct and stayed away.

rogue one will be even more garbage from disney, along their narrative. anything produced in the last few years and the next few is garbage.

not holding my breath for it.

SW7 sucked. rogue1 will suck too.

Really good as long as you don't think too hard to try to connect it to all the other ones. A bit on the long side to make sure he hits all the notes but a good movie. (+5 tp)

The Inflitrator (2016)

3.5 stars

Started slow and had that feel of scenes being thrown together to quicken the pace of a movie that takes a decent amount of time. Was worried that it was going nowhere but the tense ending stepped up in a huge way.

Very interesting reflection on the war on drugs; what it takes to go undercover, and how different punishment was then compared to today.

This year has been god awful for most movies.

Ghostbusters was the worst pile of Hollywood drivel in years. The only good part of it was that there were women starring in it. Imagine it had Seth Rogan and his ilk?

Please let Rogue One be good.

Has anyone ever seen Death Wish 5? I gather there is a scene involving an exploding soccer ball. This alone makes me want to see the movie. Would it be a wasteful venture?

Pretty decent comic movie. A little serious for my tastes, but well acted. Tony Stark makes these movies, hopefully the rumors he is quitting are no true (+2 tp)

Yeah the Dr Strange trailer was great and made me think about a movie I had no interest in seeing.

2nd Suicide Squad trailer was disappointing, I thought the 1st one was great and test screenings have said SS was really good.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

4.5 stars

Loved this movie. Quite possibly the best superhero movie I've seen. That might change once the newness wears off.

The story was decent and well done. The new Black Panther character didn't feel forced at all. Spider-Man felt a little forced, but I think it was done well. The other characters filled in their roles nicely.

The battle at the airport was unbelievable. Great action and dialogue. Spider-Man and Ant-Man shine here.

I thought the ending was great. A little human does what Ultron and Loki failed to do. Hopefully without giving anything away, I was left at the end saying to myself "He's not going to do it is he?" Great ending to the movie. (+5 tp)

Now, I'm generally a superhero movie fanboy. It takes a lot for me to not like a superhero movie.

Having said that, I actually did like Man of Steel although I found the destruction in the movie to be a bit overdone. This movie, however, was a huge disappointment. In a way, it reminded me of The Phantom Menace where they sacrificed story just so they could get to the impressive battle scenes. It was as if they were more concerned with setting up the Justice League movie then properly fleshing out this one. Several times during the movie, I found myself asking myself "What just happened and can we please move along to the inevitable conflict in the movie?"

If they do proceed with the JL movie, they will have to do much better than this one. (-1 tp)

Me too, I like that stuff better. I actually like Dr Strange. About a year ago, I tracked down the 70s version, I loved it. I wish they had followed through on the pilot

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

4 stars

Started slow and I was having BvS ptsd flashbacks.
One of the early stunts was too much for the reality I thought Cap was set in and took awhile to shake off.

Ant Man and Spiderman were excellent, there was an excellent fight scene in the middle of the movie and we actually start to get consequences.

A great twist at the end saved the movie but most rewatches will be from the Spiderman intro on and skip the first 15-30 mins. (+5 tp)

Aliens

5 stars

A truly awesome sci-fi action film. I watched this recently with my girlfriend, who hadn't seen it before, and she was gripped.

Note I'm scoring the standard theatrical release. The director's cut is best avoided. It has an early scene which completely wrecks the tension that the better theatrical release otherwise builds and builds. (+5 tp)
