Am I bad because I won't watch BvS? Something about this new superman just makes me think he's not right for the role.

The worst thing about it isn't even that it's Zack Snyders (IMO terrible) aesthetic, or that the story is poor or the conclusion stupid, or the characters bland, its that its incoherent. All the other things could be put down to stylistic choices but when you're watching a fight scene and can't tell what's going on that's just bad film making.

I guess I'm not one of those people who watches a movie just to analyze everything and notice every mistake. I just go in to enjoy a movie, I knew going in BvS wasn't going to be an Oscar worthy movie, I knew it was just going to be something fun to watch which it was. Same thing for Stranger Things, yes, it reminded me of the movies I loved as a kid but I also enjoyed the series itself. I don't read any film critic reviews and I don't really care what a movie web site says.

Not at all Sean. You're saving 3 hours of your life from being wasted.

Yes, Affleck makes a good Batman. His Bruce Wayne is a bit weak. I still think Keaton did the best job of Bruce Wayne even though he wasn't right for the Batman part.

I agree that this actor doesn't make an effective Superman.

As for it being dark and edgy, it's due to it being based a lot on The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel.

Overall I found the movie dull and boring. As a friend of mine said, not much action for a superhero movie.

Jodorowsky's Dune.

I was really unsure about watching it, but in the end found it extremely interesting - particularly at the end when they showed a whole bunch of famous scenes that seemed to have been lifted from the proposal book, or were used by people who had worked on the (not made) film.

I also greatly enjoyed the bit where he described being g=dragooned into seeing the David Lynch version "I was so happy to see it! It was terrible! I am not a nice person!"

I also did not realise that Salvador Dali (cast as the emperor Shaddam) told him to go and see the almost unknown H R Giger.

I'm still not sure it would have been a good film, much of it was delerately way over the top.

Super Dimension Fortress Macross. My first time watching it in Japanese, and my first time watching the show in at least 15 years. Just finished episode 4 ("The Long Wait"). Need to go to the local rental shop to get the next couple DVDs.

Last night I watched an entertaining movie called The Midnight After (it's on Netflix; the Canadian site at least). It's from China and was an odd ball movie about the end of the world. One thing I liked about it is that it never really explains what happened.

Just watched The last Starfighter again. The first time since I was a kid I think. It is still great! *hums the theme music*

Last night I watched Déjà Vu on Netflix. It was directed by Tony Scott and stars Denzel Washington. It is an excellent movie!

The last film I watched was on Saturday evening called Saving Grace. I had originally got it more than 10 years ago on US region 1 DVD, loaned it to someone and never got it back. Ever since then I've been trying to get it on Blu-ray, but by chance found it on Amazon under the German name Grasgeflüster!

Absolutely love this movie. Watch it with my wife at least twice a year.
