    Great casting, good direction, great artistic design, terrible, terrible script.


    For myself...

    A Boy and his Dog (1975): 7/10

    This is one of those 70s "post-apocalyptic" dystopian movies like The Omega Man, that I had never heard of previously. It's about a young man and his dog who is, for some reason, telepathically linked to him and hyper-intelligent. This is also a movie that pulls no punches in how outright awful a post-apocalyptic scenario like it sets up would actually be, and if anything, wallows in it in a way that is somewhere between dark comedy and horror. It must have really pissed off some censors back in the day.

    I think Loki's ambiguous motivations are kind of a reflection of his personality now. He was clearly setting up for the Avengers movie, but then when you consider the belief that he knew he couldn't win, it almost makes him more mysterious. I think he knew the entire avengers film that there was no way his army would win against that team. I think the only real oversight/mistake he made was in underestimating Kurse would kill his mother.

    Then again, he needed his mother dead. She would have easily known he was impersonating Odin. And if he has the ability to sideline Odin off screen, I can't imagine Thanos would be too difficult to control/manipulate/sideline. I like not knowing what motivates Loki, I think it makes his character far more interesting than anyone else in the MCU.

    Stitch! the Movie- 6.5/10

    Watching the original recently made me wanna watch this since I hadn't seen it since about 2005. The movie is clearly straight to video quality but I found it entertaining. As a kid I was a huge fan of the TV show that followed.

    The Expendables 3 - 8/10

    It's a shame this bombed because of the leak and PG-13 rating. It was fun....Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson were the stand outs here. Mel is like The Joker here and Ford....
    He hadn't had this much fun in years.
    :lol 

    I also liked Wesley Snipes...his character is exactly how I expected Snipes would be in the movie and I'm glad. :D

    Captain America: The First Avenger- 7.5/10

    Iron Man 2 and Thor had really soured my mood when it came to this Marvel-thon but thankfully The First Avenger turned things around. This and Iron Man are easily the best of the Phase 1 stand alones. The handling of Cap's origin was great, the cast was terrific, and the movie just just does a good job of giving off that old fashion classic blockbuster vibe. The movie's not perfect and my main complaint was that Red Skull was a little underdevelopd but I can forgive that because the movie does Cap's origin very well.

    My Neighbor Totoro 10/10

    Overall it was beautifully done and brings back memories from when I was with my best friends watching Miyazaki films at one of their houses in South Philly then spending hours talking about Bionicle and Pokémon.

    Came out in Australia today, saw an advanced screening last night. Had a bit more time to think about it, I think I'll give it a more concrete rating of 3/10.

    I'm legitimately surprised the idea of the movie releasing elsewhere before the US did not occur to you.

    That is still so damn stupid. WHy are American comic book movies opening up every where but the US first? That hasn't made sense to me two years ago, it still doesn't make sense now.

    Hell, we better get Spectre before Europe since they got Capt America 2 first last year.

    Anyway, I doubt the movie could legitimately be anything less than a 7, let alone a 5. Giving it a 5, or even a 3, is saying it is on the same level as Batman & Robin, Jonah Hex, DareDevil, Elektra, etc. Hell, that is saying Green Lantern, Iron Man 2, Spider-Man 3, and X-Men 3 were better than Avengers 2.

    My guess is money, build the hype by word of mouth overseas first to drive up the numbers for the opening weekend: which is allegedly when studios get the biggest cut of the profits from the cinema chains.

    So welcome to the globalization of cinema, enjoy your stay.
