Very clever film. Might not be funny to those somehow unfamiliar with the actors, however, I feel that if you're a moviegoer and aren't familiar with AT LEAST one actor in this movie, then you've probably been living under a cliché. Barring Michael Cera (watch and find out), everyone involved plays exactly like I expected them too, but in no way is that a bad thing. This movie is hilarious and without a cliché my favorite comedy of 2013 so far. The plot, while very thin, is a very clever parody of Hollywood blockbusters, bromances, and even actors in the movie. They aren't afraid to laugh at themselves, and it works. It's a fun, fun time to be had for everyone involved, just don't bring your cliche!
Overly dramatic, tragic, beautiful and whimsical; or, typical Baz Luhrmann. It's a new take on a timeless novel, with plenty of changes to offend fans of the book. Luckily for me, I never read the book (FOR SHAME), and am a fan of Baz Luhrmann's work (EXCEPT AUSTRAILIA). "The Great Gatsby" is every bit as poignant of a film as you'd expect from Luhrmann, but it's also just as polarizing. The tomato-meter can eat a butt on this one; "The Great Gatsby" is one of my favorite films of 2013.
There is A LOT to bitch about when it comes to this Superman reboot. "Man of Steel" feels like an entire season of Smallville, Lois and Clark's relationship dynamic from Lois and Clark, the All-American boy from the 70s and before, the brooding of Batman, the dialogue of Inception, the Marvel formula for success, and the camerawork of Watchmen all blended together. What comes out is a bit of an uneven mess, but I don't care. It's Superman, and while this one succeeds on the thinnest of strands, it gives me hope (THEME) that the future of the franchise has nowhere to go but up. The penultimate Superman movie has yet to be made, but this one's alright as an appetizer for fans who miss the character on the big screen.
The best blockbuster of 2013, this rebooted "Star Trek" universe may not be mine, but "Into Darkness" proves the filmmakers have respect for the past and that total reinventions can rival the originals, if not surpass them.
File this under "if it's on TBS some afternoon I might watch until the first commercial break but certainly won't buy it or ever choose to watch it in its entirety again." It's fun, forgettable, and has a future in Wal-Mart bargain bins and double-feature Blu-Rays for years to come. Watch it for $1, stream it, but don't go out of your way for it.
