I actually did like it, mostly for doing justice to many parts of the comic. However I had many issues with especially the way Robin was handled. Also certain dialogue changes were rather odd and often less subtle. Overall I enjoyed it though and I'm looking forward to Part 2.

Interesting. It looks like many problems I had with Part 1 are present in the book, like the constant switching to those television programs. It looks okay in the comic, but in the movie, it comes across as lazy storytelling and blatant spoonfeeding of (sometimes redundant or painfully obvious) information.
Speaking of Part 2,...was Superman in the comic? Apparently he's in Part 2. I don't know what to think about that.

Yeah, there are like a billion Batman-Superman movies out there. But Superman in Batman's universe sounds kind of stupid. So essentially, aliens exist in Batman's universe. Maybe I'm too used to the relatively realistic Christopher Nolan movies and maybe I find this an issue because I don't read comics at all. I don't know...I will still give Part 2 a shot, but I'm not looking forward to it.

Yep, I still have to see The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The Godfather and Goodfellas as well. I will definitely watch those three this year, simply because I feel I HAVE to.

I did enjoy the fight at the end with Deadpool (despite it not being an accurate Deadpool), but found much of it lacking. I liked how they made him mortal in the new movie, it raised the stakes from the previous movie, where it was pretty easy for him to win, therefore, not as interesting.

The things I did like about Age of Ultron were the chemistry between all of the characters, the new additions to the team, the long tracking-shots, and Ultron. I'll agree with you it did feel overstuffed at times, with too much stuff going to follow, but it was still one of the best times I've had at the theater since the first one. If you'd like to dive in deeper and discuss spoilers, I'd be happy to :)

Yeah, Johansan ( I know I spelled that wrong ) Ruffalo didn't have a lot of chemistry, but I felt the characters worked together, since they both considered themselves monsters. I know it doesn't have any basis in the comics but I'm stilled interested in where it will go.

I feel ya on Spider-Man 3. I feel pretty much the same way. I don't think deserves all the hate it gets because it does get some things right. Though I do want to walk into a restaurant some day and tell someone to "find us some shade" haha

I have seen a few John Ford films thus far. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance would probably be my personal favorite at the moment.

What did you think of Close Encounters? It's been a little while since I saw it but I really enjoyed it. What do you think of Spielberg as a filmmaker?

Yeah, I felt a little mixed as well about him leaving at the end of Close Encounters as well. Indeed, that music element of the film was pretty awesome. I thought it was a really cool idea.

I like Spielberg as well, but I definitely gravitate more towards his earlier work. I think safe is a good way to describe his films of recent years. To me they seem a little too generic and lack a unique voice. I feel like other directors could have made the same film, but his older work has a style all his own. The last film I loved of his is Catch Me If You Can but I've enjoyed some films since then.

I like Homecoming quite a bit. I saw it a second time in theaters last week. It's not my favorite Spider-Man film but I still enjoyed it, especially showing Peter having fun being Spider-Man. I really like Holland in the role and hope he sticks around for a while.

Did you like Homecoming?

I loved Blade Runner 2049. Beautifully shot film and it really plays well with the original. Personally, I thought it was vastly superior to the original. I do think the original is a solid film with some amazing moments but there still a lot that I'm iffy about even after seeing the film multiple times.

What did you think of It Follows? I thought it was a pretty good modern horror film.

Since it's almost Halloween do you like horror films? If so what are some of your favorites?

Indeed, I also felt that it set itself apart from a lot of the other horror films of the modern era. It went back to the less is more mindset and letting your imagination amp up the fear. More horror films should follow it's lead (no pun intended)

Very nice! A few of my favorite horror films in no particular order are, Psycho (Hitchcock version), The Shining, Jaws, John Carpenter's Halloween, Halloween II (1981), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), and The Strangers. Some new favorites within the past couple years are The Neon Demon, Don't Breathe and I would throw It Follows in there as well.

I think the original Halloween is my personal favorite. I've watched it every Halloween for at least 10 years. Psycho and The Shining are dangerously close as well.

Happy Death Day was alright. I saw it with a group of friends and I think that definitely helped improve the experience. The film didn't really bring anything new to the table but it was still a decent watch. I don't really need to see it again but I don't regret watching it. I seem very indecisive haha Let me put it this way...if you're really wanting to see it, check it out. If you're middle of the road, it probably isn't worth your time or hard earned money.

What was your scariest movie experience? Maybe it isn't as scary anymore but it scared the bejeezus out of you the first time.

Conjuring 2 was pretty creepy. I remember my audience was even jumping when people would open the door coming back from the concession stand they were so on edge haha

The first Conjuring was pretty creepy for me and I didn't even see it in the theater. Someone had me borrow it and I was scared in the comfort of my own home haha

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was the one that freaked me out the most. The remake from 2003 that is. I saw it not long after I came out when I was only 11. I really like it now but as a kid it was too much.

What did you think of Bone Tomahawk? That was a pretty brutal film. The same girl that gave me The Conjuring also had me watch that one. She's in to some twisted films

I liked Bone Tomahawk but it wasn't really a film I wanted to see again. Nothing wrong with it, just a one and done deal for me. It was a very unique approach to a modern film though!

Looks like we were both catching up on some of those Halloween sequels lately. Did you like them? Do you like the Halloween franchise overall?

I really like the original Halloween film. I'd put it among my favorite horror films. Still holds up no matter how many times i watch it. I think the second film is great as well. Not quite as good as the original, but an excellent continuation. I like how it picks right up from the end of the first and hits the ground running. I agree with what you said though. It's strength comes from being an extension of the first rather than just a good film on it's own.

The series kinda runs out of steam after that and I had a pretty universal opinion of 4, 5 and 6. Not great but still interesting to see. They kind of detract from the impact of the first two but they are just...fine.

H20 was ok but not as good as I was expecting. I think I'd rather watch 4 5 and 6 over H20 but not everyone feels that way.

I can't really comment on the Zombie films because I haven't seen them in at least 5 years but I remember liking elements but not the films overall.

Indeed, that will be pretty interesting having all those continuities. I wish Halloween II was still canon with this new film so I could have a (potentially) good trilogy of really good Halloween films, but I totally understand them wanting to get around that plot point of Laurie and Michael being siblings. I'm was never really crazy on the sibling thing either, but oh well.

What did you think of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Godfather Part II?

I love Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Definitely one of my favorite musical films. The music, the choreography and characters all blend together so well.

I agree, Godfather Part II is very well structured, perfectly showing the parallels. I believe there is an edit out there you can watch of the whole saga cut into chronological order, but I think that's not as effective.

I love Part I and Part II almost equally. I have a difficult time picking one over the other. They were one of the early classic films I got into. Part III however, I despised. Granted, I've only seen it once and that was 10 years ago. I'm going to watch it again soon to see how I feel about it.

I really like Shane Black as well. The Nice Guys is probably my favorite work of his. I just love his style and humor. His work really has a feel of its own that sets it apart. I also think it's pretty cool a lot of his work is set around Christmas.

Justice League missed the mark for me. I'm someone that really likes Man of Steel and Batman v Superman so I thought this one felt so out of place. I really didn't like the tone they were going for and I thought everything seemed so glossed over. The blame goes to studio on that I feel. I was never impressed with this film from the very first trailer but I feel like Snyder would have at least put out a more fulfilling, complete film.

I don't know what to think of the future of the DC cinematic universe. Everything is constantly changing over there and they seem like they are grasping for anything. I liked Man of Steel, BvS and Wonder Woman but Justice League and Suicide Squad were such duds, it's hard to get excited for future stuff. I'm really hoping Matt Reeve's Batman project can turn things around.

How do you feel about it?

Doing anything special for New Year's?

That's one thing I can't stand about Warner Bros on this is that they seem to be way too controlling. They don't seem to be letting the directors fulfill their own vision. Or they are just rushing. Even David Ayer, a very good filmmaker and writer, was only given a couple weeks to write the full script for Suicide Squad before he really had an idea for it.

That's sounds awesome. Had you been their since you were a kid or was this your first time back?

That sounds like a really fun way to spend New Year's Eve. I just re-watched The Dark Knight trilogy a couple weeks ago. It had been a while since I had seen them. How would you rank them?

For my New Years, I went snowmobiling in -20 degree weather during the day. Cold but very fun. Then that night I got together with some friends and hung out. Pretty quiet night but it was still enjoyable.

The Last Jedi is a tough one for me. Some stuff I liked and other stuff I'm not too keen on. I loved The Force Awakens and that's where I think my issues with this one come in. It seemed to disregard a lot of what JJ was introducing. I understand trying to keep the audience on their toes, but it seem to clash too much with Force Awakens. I loved all the stuff with Rey and Luke and wished I could have seen more. Loved all the stuff with Kylo Ren as well.

I hated anything involving Rose. Really did not like the character and I just could not get on board with her. All the sequences such as Canto Bight and DJ and all that, seemed like filler. Even stuff like Holdo not telling anyone her plan made me think, why is this happening?

Overall, I feel the good outweigh the bad, but I was hoping for more. I'd rank it in the middle of the pack for Star Wars at this point after seeing it a second time.

What do you think about The Last Jedi?

That's cool, man. That must have been a lot of fun going back. I'm just guessing but we must be roughly the same age if you were there about 10 years ago. I"m in my mid twenties myself. You definitely seem to enjoy a lot of older films. Have you always had an interest in classic films?

As you can tell by my chart, I really like the Dark Knight films haha Begins and The Dark Knight both blew me away when I first saw them in theaters. Rises was one I felt very mixed on the first time but it really grew on me the more I re-watched it.

What is your favorite movie trilogy? Or series if there is more than three.

I feel ya. The longer these films go on the more repetitive it seems. I was pretty excited when Ben started pleading to Rey about letting the past die and start something new. I thought it could take the story in some very interesting places but they immediately backed out of it only a couple minutes later.

Are you a fan of the original expanded universe of Star Wars?

Ehh...I would say I'm more of a Stewart fan. At least that's why I'm watching some of Mann's films. I've seen 5 of Mann's films so far and The Glenn Miller Story and The Man From Laramie have been my favorites. I've liked Mann's work so far though, he really puts you in the story.

Right on, I'm 25 as well. That's pretty neat about your top 10. A few of my favorite films come from my childhood as well such as Lassie, Field of Dreams and Home Alone. They all just have a special place.

My dad is a big Jimmy Stewart fan so that's where it comes from for me. Now he is one of my favorites as well. What are some of your favorite Stewart films? Obviously, It's a Wonderful Life is one of them haha

The original Star Wars trilogy is fantastic. That's been one of my favorites for most of my life as well.

I have yet to read any of the expanded universe material. I do hear it has some really good stuff to offer though.

I know! I really wasn't pleased with Rose saving Finn. When he takes off towards the fleet and I thought it was about to be such a wonderful moment. It would be such a great arc for Finn, leaving the only thing he had ever known and now sacrificing himself to stop them. I like the character and would have felt sad seeing him go but it just felt so right. Then Rose totally ruins the moment and then plants the one the most awkward kisses I've ever seen.

It took me a little bit to get into The Dirty Dozen but I ended up really liking it once it got rolling. I'll probably end up buying the blu ray at some point. I love films like that. It made me want to watch The Great Escape again soon.

What do you think is the best written film of all time?

Awesome, not enough people seem to talk about The Great Escape. Or at least in my experiences. Such a great classic film.

Cool, It's a Wonderful Life, Rear Window and Anatomy of a Murder are probably my top favorites. You can never really go wrong with a Stewart film.

I haven't seen Man for All Seasons. That's one reason why I love older films is that they are so well written. They didn't have all the fancy effects they can rely on today, they had to tell a riveting story to keep people interested.

I liked Hostiles. If you're into westerns, go check it out. Without a doubt it's a slow burning film, but it was well done. Christian Bale is one of my favorites and he did a fantastic job once again.

Speaking of westerns, how was Hang Em Up? That's one of the Eastwood films I still need to see

I thought The Commuter was pretty decent. It didn't have me on the edge of my seat or anything but Liam Neeson delivered as always. I liked Non-Stop a lot more that was by the same director.

What did you think of Insomnia?

Nice, Insomnia is pretty underrated. Not just among Nolan's filmography, but as a film in general. A really well done film from start to finish. Hillary Swank didn't quite deliver for me, but it doesn't detract from the film as a whole. I always enjoyed seeing serious performances from Robin Williams. He was a pretty talented guy.

Indeed, Tom Cruise has had a pretty bizarre personal life, but I too really like his work ethic. He's been involved in many good films.

Very cool. As for some of my favorites off the top of my head I'd say Christian Bale, James Stewart, Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood, Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Dean, James Franco, Tom Hardy, Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Cary Grant, Jake Gyllenhaal, Fred MacMurray, Robert De Niro and Kevin Costner to name a few.

For actresses I'd say Emma Stone, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Connelly, Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, Elle Fanning, Meg Ryan, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley, Emily Blunt and Margot Robbie.

You said you like musicals, what are some of your favorites?

I liked Black Panther but it didn't rock my world like it's seem to with a lot of other people. I thought it was a perfectly fine Marvel film but it wasn't one of their best. It had a lot of good things going for it, mostly with the cast, but it didn't quite match some of their other films. Personally, I liked the character of Black Panther a lot more in Civil War than in his own film. While Black Panther is a solid film, I think the fact that it's considered an "important" film is what's really helping it for people. What did you think of it?

I do like musicals. I'm much more of a casual fan, but I do enjoy them. Wizard of Oz, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, La La Land, Grease and Oklahoma are some of my favorites.

I did like the 15:17 to Paris but it was a pretty average film, especially for Eastwood. A lot of the film felt like filler until they get on the train in the back half of the film. I just don't think there was enough to draw from. One thing that stuck out some was the cast. They weren't terrible but you could really tell in some scenes they are not actors. It was a really cool idea using the real people, it's just something that stood out to me. I'd watch it again on tv but I wouldn't buy the blu ray.

Nice. Raiders of the Lost Ark is definitely among my favorite Spielberg films. The film has a little bit of everything and is a film that is hard for others to match.

I do like the Indy series. I even had a dog named Indy for a while named after it haha I bought the blu ray set of all 4 films a while back and I should really revisit them all soon. Raiders is easily my favorite followed by Last Crusade. I feel like Kingdom of the Crystal Skull gets a little more hate than it deserves but it's still an average film. Temple of Doom is one that can't seem to win me over. I've seen it numerous times but it is never one of my favorite entries. If I remember right Spielberg doesn't even like it haha but I could be wrong.

I really liked Ready Player One. I think it's one of Spielberg's best in years. I know that's a lot of hype but it's the most I've enjoyed a new film of his in quite some time. I have never read the book but now I'm kind of interested. There was a lot of creativity at play and I liked the cast. Do you plan on seeing it?

I really liked A Quiet Place as well. I think it deserves all the praise it's getting and I've thought about it every day since I saw it. The only bummer was that people in my theater kept talking the entire 90 minutes. What did you think of it?

I really liked Royal Tenenbaums as well. Moonrise Kingdom was a weird one in that I really didn't like it the first time but I really liked it upon a second viewing.

I had a blast with Infinity War too. Definitely lived up to the hype for me. The film was near perfect for what it set out to do. Most everyone had their time to shine and it just reminded me of being a kid reading comic books every night.

How does Infinity War compare to the other MCU films for you?

I did like Witness. I had no clue what it was about going in, I just checked it out because I always like Harrison Ford. Really interesting film and well executed. Have you seen it?

I think Witness would be my favorite of the Weir films that I have seen. Master and Commander and Dead Poets Society were middle of the road for me. Truman Show was alright.

Yeah, the contrast between cultures was really well done in Witness. A really fascinating film.

I did like The Longest Day. I like war films and this was one of the better ones. Even with the long runtime, I was invested the whole way.

Totally, check out as many Bogey and Bacall films as you can. Just a really great onscreen combo in many good films. I have a tough time figuring out what my favorite would be. I've only seen it once so far but I remember really liking Dark Passage. Key Largo was another one I enjoyed. I love films where you feel trapped at one location.

I liked Deadpool 2 more than I thought I would. I'm not a big fan of the original. I like the first section of it but it really drops off as soon as they start testing on Wade. I thought this one was a little more enjoyable overall and I liked the emotional weight that it brought with it. I really liked Brolin as Cable and was happy to hear he'll be back for multiple X-Men films.

Boy, Brolin will have a huge paycheck this year between Infinity War, Deadpool 2 and Sicario 2.

Nice, I really liked A Quiet Place as well. A few of my favorites from this year are: I Can Only Imagine, Best F(r)iends, Infinity War, Isle of Dogs and A Quiet Place.

I liked Solo but I wasn't blown away by it. I liked the cast, it was well done, but it didn't really seem like it needed to exist. It just felt like filler compared to the rest of the Star Wars films. Ehrenreich and Glover were probably my favorite parts of the film. Compared to the other films in the series, I'd put this one in the bottom half as of right now.

What did you think of it?

Is there any other characters you think should get a solo movie (no pun intended)

Dude, that whole thing how he got his name in Solo was killing me haha! It was just so lame. Why couldn't his name just be Han Solo right from the get go?

I totally agree that it was a smoother film than Justice League. I wanted to like that film so bad but you could tell it was tampered with and it was too different than its predecessors that I enjoyed. Solo did a much better job of delivering a solid film.

All good choices there. Obi Wan would be top of my list to see in an anthology film of and kind of my only choice. I don't really want these films to go on forever even though I fear they will.

Darth Maul would be very cool as well.

Otherwise, I think the Old Republic is the way to go. As much as I enjoy Episodes 7 & 8, I want to see a film that isn't connected to any of the others.

What did you make of Jurassic Word: Fallen Kingdom?

I thought Fallen Kingdom was an ok film but a Jurassic Park film has yet to meet the quality of the first two for me. I hated that plot element of that girl being a clone, and I mean hated. Then that decision she makes at the end is so lame. The film was a very mixed bag for me with some stuff I liked and some I really didn't care for.

I really liked The Incredibles 2. The first one is one of my favorite Pixar films so I was hesitant about this one but it really delivered. Didn't quite top the first one but it was still really good. I can't wait to buy it on blu ray.

What did you think of True Lies?

Are you a fan of the Mission: impossible franchise?

Nice, I also really like True Lies. I thought it was a nice change of pace for Cameron and I always love when Schwarzenegger does comedy.

I do enjoy the MIssion: Impossible films. I wouldn't say I'm a massive fan or anything but I think they are really enjoyable. The only one I don't care for is the second film. I think III and Rogue Nation are my personal favorites with Ghost Protocol right behind. I'm really looking forward to the new one.

I liked The Equalizer II. Nothing earth shattering but just a good fun film. It was a lot like the first so you enjoyment of this one probably depends on how you feel about the first. Denzel was great as always and it had some really good scenes.

What is your favorite stunt in the Mission: Impossible series?

Sorry for my absence! Life and work have been crazy busy so I haven't been able to be on the site much but I'm back.

I really like Fallout. Definitely among my favorites of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Tom Cruise knocked it out of the park again!

What did you think of Smokey and the Bandit?

Oh, nice. My girlfriend is also going through the whole student teaching thing. That's a crazy workload!

Yeah, I've seen Smokey and the Bandit once. I thought it was a fun watch, but not really one I want to see again and again. Indeed, Burt Reynolds was really charismatic and really stole the show.

While I'm a fan of the Halloween franchise, I really didn't care for Halloween: Resurrection. The concept was intriguing and I appreciate it was trying to approach the franchise with new angle but the execution was pretty terrible.

Do you like the Halloween films? I love the original and am really looking forward to the new one coming out this week. Here's how I would rank the franchise:

1. Halloween (1978)
2. Halloween (2007)
3. Halloween II (1981)
4. Halloween: The Return of Michael Myers
5. Halloween: H20
6. Halloween: Revenge of Michael Myers
7. Halloween II (2009)
8. Halloween: Curse of Michael Myers
9. Halloween III: Season of the Witch
10. Halloween: Resurrection

Yeah, the quality of the Halloween sequels are a little all over the place to say the least haha

The second Zombie film is a bit of an odd one. It seems like you either like it or you don't. I strongly dislike it haha It has some cool scenes but I thought Zombie made a better film the first time around.

I liked the new one. It was refreshing scrapping all the sequels and just focusing on the original. It made it so much cleaner. There's some stuff I liked and some stuff I wasn't crazy about. I thought the podcasters were a waste of time and I really didn't like Laurie's daughter and her husband. Some of the humor didn't click for me. I felt the end was a little over the top at times as well. A few of the logistics didn't make sense for me such as how did the podcasters get that mask? Isn't that evidence and should be locked away? How are they walking around with it in their bag?

On the positives, I liked that they made Michael Myers scary again. I loved that they brought back the original opening title sequence with that iconic score pulsating throughout the theater, making the seats buzz. It had some great moments like the scene with the motion sensor lights. I loved that little black kid, he was awesome. I liked the whole sequences surrounding him like Michael hiding in his closet. The tracking shot of Michael walking through the neighborhood was terrific as well. I liked all the little nods to the predecessors such as the Michael terrorizing someone in public restroom like in H20, the gas station from Halloween 4, kids wearing the masks from Halloween III, stuff like that. And best of all, the music was spectacular!

Overall I liked the movie. I had more issues with it than I thought I would, but I'd still put it as the second or third best Halloween film.

What do you think of David Gordon Green's Halloween?
