Meh. I was going to try to see it with my girlfriend, but I just keep hearing bad things about it.

With the same director as 300 and Watchmen I went in expecting great visual effects and a sub par storyline. I would have been fine with that, but there was next to no story at all. Just a mish-mash of hot chicks and sped-up / slowed-down fight scenes with iconic monsters. Just silly.

If you're going to see this at all I think it would be better on Blu-ray than in the theater.

I watched Falling Down (1993) again. Good movie.

he did a solid job with the dawn of the dead remake. 300 was very well done. watchmen was a good movie, but was a step lower compared to 300. then he started to decline drastically. legend of the guardians is horrible. i am sure sucker punch is horrible too. it may be the fact he's done too many movies (3 in the past 3 years). unfortunately he's doing the superman remake coming out next year, so we're going to have low expectations with that one.

What I don't get is why they can spend millions on visual effects and so little on hiring someone to write a good story. How much can it cost comparatively?

The intricacies of eloquent dialogue and existential discourse are largely lost in translation to the international market, which tends to encompass a majority of the revenue for major motion pictures these days. It's why movies like Transformers 2 are allowed to happen. You don't need to have a significant grasp of the native language a film can flaunt when it's just 90 minutes of dueling robots and absently-veiled Chevrolet plugging.

nice.
we can't blame foreigners for the existence of transformers, or similar movies, though. the blame belongs closer to home...

escapist cinema has become a plague here in the states. it's terrible. and the possibility of shooting movies in 3D has obviously been more boner-inducing among directors and producers than perhaps anything in the past. 3D has been used as a "look look look at me" sort of tactic, more than anything else. the only movie that i've really enjoyed the 3D in, to date, was Coraline.
I remember reading that Mars Needs Moms cost $175 million to produce and opened with under $7 million in sales. maybe things will change? maybe this had something to do with del toro getting red-lighted on mountains of madness..who knows.

It is such a ridiculous state of affairs: Especially when the studios keep bitching about how much money is being 'stolen' off them from pirates (yarrr)--

they're fucking stupid. Stop spending so much on shit movies, pay for quality cinema and not only will you be spending less, but people will me more inclined to pay... eeeesh

Wicked - I remember seeing it years ago, and was a really well made and acted thriller.

Same as falling down.

WTF has happened to making good thrillers? The 90's was literally a trove of good thrillers (even the disposable ones are still worth watching).

Memories of murder (Salinui chueok) is an excellent Korean movie. Highly recommended. (Not that anyone ever listens to me, though )
