(Deadline)   Gravity is the #1 film in America for the 3rd week in a row, and Carrie slaughters its way to #2, with Captain Philips a close #3. And it was no secret the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate was going to bomb, earning a paltry $1.7 million   (deadline.com) divider line 22

Mugato: What is it with this Cumberbatch dude? He was serviceable (although terribly miscast) in what he was given in Star Trek but everyone now acts like they've all been his #1 fan for years.


I guess you didn't watch Sherlock when it first came out.

Saw Captain Phillips last night - holy crap. I was NOT expecting that. What a great farking movie. Especially the last 20 minutes or so. It's like Tom Hanks was just looking at the screen and saying "yeah, so I know a lot of you have been a little down on me recently, thinking I play the same character over and over again and that I don't really show you much different these days; well, enjoy this here, because its about time I remind you that I am, in fact, the best farking actor alive, and there's a reason I won back to back Academy Awards; suck on it."

What Hanks does in this movie is pheeeenomenal. A nomination is secured, and right now he has my vote for Best Actor. Looking ahead, the only real challenge I see is Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave.

I'm still hung up on how disappointed I was with Gravity, and I'm gonna rant about it for a bit with a few SPOILERS. I saw the trailer months ago, I was excited as hell. I wanted to like this movie so bad, and I really did for the first bit. Then the action started happening, which was still cool. What killed it for me were Clooney, his godawful death, and Bullock.

Clooney got just a bit too smarmy, and there was no reason for him to even die at all. She had him, he was stopped, just tug back and he's on a trajectory to safety! This is the only technical issue I'm gonna gripe about, I don't care that they took other shortcuts. If they really needed him to croak, they should have had him zinged by some space junk. The "let me go, I'm sacrificing myself for you" monologue thing was just... ugh. Shut the fark up, George Clooney. I can't even remember the character's name because he was just Clooneyed up to 11.

Aaand Stone, Sandra Bullock. The Space Rookie. Serious question: why is she in space? How did she go from a nurse with a dead kid that only "works, sleeps, and drives" to repairing the Hubble? Why did whatever motivation she gained in that buffer time suddenly evaporate when shiat went down? Who the fark didn't even let this woman play some Kerbals before strapping her into a rocket? She was just so damn wishy-washy, it made me not care. The urgency of her getting back to safety was dampened by the fact that I would have been okay with her not making it.

Mentalpatient87: Yeah, and that's all bullshiat physics. Space does not work that way. There's "that's not quite how it works" and then there's "it works the completely opposite to that." They only did it so that Cloon-tang could have the most cheesy, self-indulgent sacrificial death I've ever seen. I was expecting him to strike a "on the cross" pose as he floated away..


Oh boohoo ... There are 9000 technical things wrong with the movie (like the fact that Hubble and ISS space station are even remotely close in orbit to each other) and you chose to focus on this one scene.  Why?  Its a fark'n drama.  And a very good one.  Just let it go.  The problem is you. Not the movie.

Carth: I didn't think it was a bad movie. I as actually impressed they managed to make a decent PG-13 zombie movie even if it has nothing to do with the novel. I think it was also generally well reviewed so some people must have liked it.


All the reviews I read/saw were basically: it's not as bad as we thought it was going to be, which is what I would call "damning with faint praise".

foo monkey: He wasn't stopped. He was continuing to pull her and stress the parachute lines. If he were stopped, the lines wouldn't have continued to slip off her leg. If he'd held on, they would have slipped off. If he'd given a little tug, it would have increased the stress and cause the lines to slip off.

wichitaleaf: Not every movie has to be a documentary.


I didn't want it to be, I just didn't want the main characters to be so unlikeable that I stopped caring if they lived.

dletter: Wow, that is quite a bomb for a movie that has been advertised as much as 5th Estate... I'll guess if you want to see it you can wait for Netflix streaming in about 3 months.


Seriously, Cumberbatch is my favorite actor and even I had no real interest to get off my ass and go to the theater for 5th. I'm not sure why. It's a shame, the supporting cast is pretty phenomenal too. Apparently, he's fantastic in it (he always is) but the movie itself is mediocre at best. Red Box.

I'll definitely be going to see his other 3 films this Fall though- 12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. That's gonna be fun.

Carth: Infernalist: Carth: Sinbox: Carth: Sinbox: It was delayed for a reason. When the word Reshoots is used bandied about you know you're in trouble

Except you know.. WWZ which ended up being Pitts biggest movie ever with over 500 million box office.

Did you think/feel that it was a quality film to view? Did you rave about its quality? Did anybody?

I didn't think it was a bad movie. I as actually impressed they managed to make a decent PG-13 zombie movie even if it has nothing to do with the novel. I think it was also generally well reviewed so some people must have liked it.

I'd call it a crap movie, but that'd be insulting to crap in general.

That's why personal taste is so great everyone gets their own opinion. Just keep in mind you're in the minority. It has positive ratings on rottentomatoes, metacritic and audience score.


Yes, and there are millions of One Direction fans, too.

Popularity =/= Quality

I tend to go to theaters for action/sci-fi movies with great visuals and use Netflix for dramas. 5th Estate looks like a good movie that I want to see, but I don't think the full IMAX/3D treatment is necessary.

DamnYankees: Carth: WZ which ended up being Pitts biggest movie ever

That's depressing.


As big a star as Pitt is perceived to be, he hasn't really been in a lot of huge blockbusters. Fight Club would be my favorite of his films, which was a huge flop that a few suits got fired over. The Oceans movies were successes but they weren't enormous tent-pole movies like these WWZ movies apparently are.

Machete Kills was as absurd and entertaining as I'd expected, though it seemed...shorter than the first one. Demian Bichir continues to impress me, while Mel Gibson was a fantastic antagonist. I can't wait to see Machete Kills....In Space! now.


Chloe Moretz is a gifted starlet and certainly deserved better than an unnecessary remake of a horror classic. But Tinseltown will never learn. Same old story.


The Oscar buzz around 12 Years A Slave is loud enough to require headphones-and that's fine with me.

I'm sorry. I know he's a great actor and he's been in some great films but I still have PTSD from Forrest Gump.

Watch Captain Phillips - its one of those rare movies where you genuinely do see someone do something they've never done before.


Captain Phillips was a pretty good movie and Hanks was amazing in it. They released it at a horrible time as it is up against 2 or 3 movies that are just better.

Jebus.
Can't you just suspend disbelief for a couple hours and enjoy the 3D.
Not every movie has to be a documentary.
When I went I was worried cuz before the show it was a loud crowd, but the second it started total silence the entire movie.
Good flick.
Good for 3D.
I enjoyed it.

It's Me Bender: why would anyone watch Carrie?  The trailer has the entire plot.


And there was already one in the 1970s and a remake/sequel in 1999. And it's not that great a story to begin with.
