If that one had been made 20 years ago, with Clint Eastwood and some actual Howard material, it could have been a masterpiece.Iconodule said:Solomon Kane
I was sort of excited to see that someone made a movie based on a more obscure Robert E Howard hero. Unfortunately the movie is really bad. Unimaginative dialogue and amorphous plotting (there is really no sense of place here) plus historical/ religious illiteracy- Puritans have monasteries? Really? I suppose the writers could excuse it by saying that it's an alternate history, but in this case that's just a cover for not doing your homework.
My stepdaughter wants to get that, plus ParaNorman and Hotel Transylvania. Kiddie scare flicks are fun for all ages.biro said:Just got "Frankenweenie" from the Redbox dispensary down the road. I suspect it's going to be neat.
Cool. I'm overdue for a day glazing out to cartoons, though. 'S just me.Arachne said:I'm a Disney fan myself; have been since I was my son's age, and I'm mightily chuffed that we get D Cinemagic on our satellite package. But even back then I'd agree that a different movie each day is definitely too much of a good thing.

All Star Superman was kind of disappointing, but I suppose that's inevitable considering how fantastic the source material was. They simply didn't have time to get all my favorite bits in.Papist said:
Agreed. I really enjoyed it. I think it would have made quite a bit more money if only it had been marketed properly and maybe released in the summer.William said:I thought John Carter was pretty solid scifi for a movie with no publicity or prestige or anything.
Ach, Standartenfuhrer! Du bist sehr sexlich!Asteriktos said:Just watched Iron Sky. Apparently after World War 2 nazis (including Hitler) traveled to the dark side of the moon and built up a spaceship army thing, planning on eventually invading earth. Fairly dumb movie, as one might have expected. It was a corny comedy in addition to being a corny sci-fi movie. *shrugs* The only good part about the movie was the cute lead actress Julia Dietze...
Just finished watching Blood In, Blood Out--one of my favorite films as a Mexican-American, next to La Bamba.
