Such a parade of pure garbage, comic book variety and otherwise, this year that they need to pull out films that are actually good. Trouble is, I've seen them more than once and own the DVDs, so I won't be going to a theater to pay to see them.

Whenever you see a movie that has received zero reviews only a few days from its release, expect garbage. An entertainment news blurb from 2006 - LOS ANGELES - Critics are being shut out of more films as studios forgo advance screenings on flicks they expect reviewers to trash, figuring the movies stand a better chance of box-office success with no reviews rather than bad ones.

I'm a BIG zombie fan, but I thought WWZ was pretty much a, "Meh..." Inadequate character development made any time spent on family character interaction beyond the opening sequence a total waste of time, the Israelis were very smart while at the same time somehow very stupid, the resolution of the problem at the end made any possible sequel uninteresting and leaving an opening for a sequel was supposedly the whole reason to rewrite the original ending shot for the film.

If I'd known the same writer rewrote the movie as wrote for Prometheus, another movie that could have been fantastic but most certainly wasn't, I'd have expected much less from WWZ. They totally botched WWZ. People were even laughing at the poorly chosen activities of zombies in the closeups, chattering their teeth. When the audience laughs at zombies you don't intend to be funny, you should know right then that you don't have the slightest clue about how to make a zombie film.

Star Trek Into Darkness

I didn't like this film nearly as much as the first. It was formulated to provide continuous action and any of the character interaction that makes ST special was just incidental during heavy action where it garnered no laughs at all in the theater I was in. "Star Trek Into Darkness" was designed to appeal to a mass audience. From my perspective, that was a huge mistake. The film was really dumbed down for mass audiences that need things blowing up every second to maintain their attention span which is that of a three year old.

This is a Star Trek that needs explosions every ten minutes to keep the audience interested, most of whom are not Trekkers. Hot blonds and Kirk having threesomes and endless "booms, bangs, and pows!" is the equation for getting teen males in the seats and having the ridiculous love story between "NuSpock" and "NuUhura" keeps the teen girls in the seats. Having Kirk act like a whiny emo kid keeps all of them in the seats because now they can identify with him. "Parents suck! LOL!"

This is a predictable formula sci-fi film with predictable formula dialog utilizing characters and even plot lines that someone else created mixed in with some great special effects. This is 180 degrees from what Roddenbery created: daring ideas, imaginative concepts and innovative characters and dialog with lackluster special effects, the best that they could do.

Tucker & Dale vs Evil

A real sleeper. Worth watching. Too bad it only made $200K(!) box office which means there probably won't be another. Hope they make some bucks on DVD sales since they deserve it.
