The characters are growing on me. I still like Gamora and Baby Groot the best, but the others have moved up a notch in my estimation. The search for Star Lord's father isn't as interesting as all the cosmic powered characters in the original, but the team coming together to face the universal danger of Ego, the Living Planet was heart-warming and heroic. I liked this as much as the first one.
A slickly produced horror movie with above average acting and cool special effects. It's pretty faithful to the King novel, which is one of his best. While not scary to me - I have no problem with clowns - it is dark and moody throughout and creepy at times. One of the best horror movies I've seen in a while. My only issue with it is the run time. It was too long - sitting in the theater for the re-issue before the sequel, my rear end began to hurt after the movie had run for over two hours. Then my focus was split between what was on the screen and my butt.
A comedy/horror with a decent mix of chuckles and gore. The zombies take a back seat to a small group of survivors that band together by chance and struggle with trusting each other. A reluctant bond forms and it's all for one and one for all by the end. Nice effects on the zombies, though most are shown in groups and not close up. This movie made a zombie apocalypse fun.
What an awesome movie. Steve Rogers is a man who stands for what he believes in, and sticking by promises made to friends back in the 1940's is one of those things. As a result, new friends become enemies and battle lines are drawn. All three Captain America movies have been enormously entertaining. If the comics could bottle this stuff, Cap would be a best seller all the time. Loved seeing Spider-Man enter this universe. This movie is gold.
Solomon Kane is a ship's Captain known for his extreme courage and violence. The Devil wants his soul, so he hides out in a monastery and becomes a Puritan man of peace, to the point where he stands and does nothing while an innocent child is killed before his eyes. However, when they kidnap the young lady he's interested in, that changes everything and he unleashes the savage violence pent up inside him. A decent performance by Purefoy in a ho-hum movie.
