Iron Man is a prick, dooming the world unless The Avengers can save it.

Another comic book movie. Meh. I'm sure it made money, but it makes no contributions to anything whatsoever. Recommended for pop comic book movie fans.

  • Properly titled Avengers: Age of Ultron.

I didn't get very far in before I threw my hands up in disgust.

This immediately comes off as a Christian propaganda film. Girl has doubts in JEEEESUSSSSS, is uncomfortable with her friends being called bad, learns they are bad, they do bad things.. then JEEEESUSSSSS and she was totally wrong and the true way was always god and stuff and praise the lord and by the way did I say praise the lord because totes praise him.

I didn't stick around to get into that last bit. Maybe it's a dark crime comedy and stuff, but fucked if I'm going to continue watching.

  • The "just like a video game" thing should be fucking illegal to put into a movie.

Facing hard times, the Ghostbusters are called back into action when the city's mood dips deep into anger.

Definitely not as good as Ghostbusters - (1984 movie), but an adequate film nonetheless.

An explorer ship bumps into aliens.

AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Do not watch this, especially if you are a fan of the alien movie franchise.

Once I re-watch this I'll add some more notes.

Alien - Resurrection (1997) dvd image

The survivors of an alien attack struggle to stay alive aboard their research vessel, and learn its true purpose.

Perhaps because Alien 3 - (1992 movie) wasn't as amazing as the first two, Alien: Resurrection wasn't that impactful. I think it was a cop-out of an odd reboot.

  • This is properly titled Alien: Resurrection

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)

TODO - Crime and stuff.

After seeing Black Mass (2015) I'm reminded to put this into the growing catalogue. I'll have to come back and re-watch it to add any real notes. Though I've seen this, it isn't in my collection and I don't expect to see it again any time soon.

Being ancient and good, this movie has become the standard for a "certain type" of movie. It got there first, so it set the bar. One which arguably hasn't been reached by other movies.

The FBI make an alliance with the mob.

I'm not a particularly big fan of this type of movie, but this one was good. I don't think it's worth watching a second time. I got bored most of the way through.

  • Based on Black Mass (2006?) by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill

Out of the Furnace (2013) poster

A maladjusted ex-soldier gets into fighting to repay his debts, and his now-ex-con working-class brother turns to vigilantism when the fighting goes bad.

Decent, but definitely not good enough to watch a second time. Not impactful in the least.

In the past, a dude retells the story of some stuff that happened on some island way over there. Also there are accents and titties.

Maybe I'm not in the mood or my tastes have changed. I thought I'd like this, but I got bored.
