    so from like previews/trailers you are able to ascertain that the movie lacks substance or a point?

    It is not meant to entertain?

    Even if this is what you meant I covered it with "you must not ever watch anything."

    ok fair enough semantics over

    During his second special scene
    Where he is burned the fuck up
    is where the film broke up for me at my theater so the impact was weird. It went into split screen mode.

    Gives me a good reason to see it again though.



    Oh and YaYa I now know what you were sighing about as I have just turned avatars and sigs back on and know what a Scott Pilgrim is.

    Snowbeat still rains on internet popular stuff though

    This movie was fucking awesome

    And for those of you who are saying it looks stupid and inane, there are plenty of moments of actual drama and emotion in it (though it is also kinda crazy at times) and it's really well-acted overall

    And yes, Nic Cage is spectacular in this

    Could anyone make out what he was yelling
    while he was burning to death?

    edit: that is a really real spoiler under there, by the way

    I think he was telling
    Hit-Girl what tactics to use to take out the bad guys. I heard him yell "USE THE KRYPTONIIIIITE!" at one point, referring to the strobing flashlight she had mounted on her gun. Also, I think the move he told her to use to finish off the last guy was called Robin's Revenge.

    But yeah, I saw this tonight. I thought it was enjoyable.

    Though at certain points, the movie and the comic are completely different.

    Which is good, because the comic ended up being kind of a bummer.

    The last page, just as the climax of the story is to be told, is a ink pressing of the writer's cock and balls.

    Saw Kick-Ass last friday with my sister and we both loved it, Hit-Girl is so, so awesome. The movie was actually quite more violent than I expected since I knew virtually nothing about it but I didnt have any problems with that.

    I saw this last week (has it only just come out in America or something?), and I quite enjoyed it. At the same time, there was something that bugged me about it that I can't quite put my finger on.
    Offhand, I'm going to say that I didn't find Kick Ass to be a likeable protagonist - it was like they were trying too hard to make him a typical comic book geek that the target audience could relate to. Or something.

    Alos, it was like The Dark Knight or Inglourious Basterds for me. In Dark Knight, when the Joker's not on screen, you're waiting for the next scene with him in. In Basterds, Colonel Landa absolutely steals the movie. I guess what I'm saying is that Nicholas Cage and Hit Girl stole this movie, and stole it harder than Heath Ledger or Christoph Waltz did in the two examples I just mentioned.

    Seeing it right now. It's kinda eh so far.

    And they're using a lot of shakycam for some reason.

    Wait, Ebert gave this 3.5/4 stars? That seems kinda high.

    He had a point of contention that pulled him so much out of the movie that he was unable to enjoy it

    Doesn't really matter

    There might be, say, a movie about the holocaust that shows a bunch of Jews being killed

    Yes, the point is that the holocaust was an incredibly inhuman and stupid thing that never should have happened

    But there are people that just plain don't want to see that and will find it unsettling enough to make them hate the movie, regardless of it actually being important or not.

    this is actually a surprisingly decent use of a Nazi analogy

    but that argument doesn't hold water, man

    either way, you know what you're getting into when you see Kick-Ass/imaginary holocaust movie if you've seen any promotional material at all

    Ebert's review reminded me of his review of Death Race 2000 back in the 70's. He seems to have a real problem with mixing comedy and violence and kids watching it.

    Well yes

    But I mean, he's still going to review a major release

    That's his job.

    Just don't be surprised when he doesn't like it!

    I have never understood it when reviewers get all "WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHIIIIILDREEEEN?" about violent movies. Really, they should be getting up in arms about the shitty parents who let their eight-year-old kids see MA15+ films. Isn't that why we have ratings in the first place?

    Here in Australia, a certain journalistic hack by the name of Richard Wilkins was all abloo bloo kids shouldn't see this movie, and the presenter of the morning news show he was appearing on more or less said "Yeah, but...this movie is MA15+, right? So, nobody under 15 should be seeing it? And teenagers are generally old enough to tell the difference between movies and reality, right? So really, what's your goddamn problem, Richard Wilkins?"

    If this shit is so obvious that breakfast TV presenters can see it, then why do film critics seem to have such difficulty grasping it hargleblargle...

    Roger Ebert's review is completely in line with his usual style. He loves to nitpick, to focus on "minor" aspects and often has strong opinions about movies. In one of his reviews, he casually mentions at the end that he walked out after five minutes. His reviews are very subjective and he's fully aware of it. This leads to varying results, but I think it's part of the reason why he is so popular.

    I think he actually re-reviewed the film that he walked out on after five minutes because he felt that his writing a funny and interesting article had gotten in the way of reviewing the film, which he hates.

    Or something.
