(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 9

Mentalpatient87: 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.


I wish Richard Parker had eaten her when she landed.

Maybe people who really wanted to see "The Fifth Estate" already downloaded pirated copies off of the Internet and didn't bother going to the theater.

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".

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.

Someone explained this on the movie's IMDB.com page but I was drunk and didn't understand it.
