I feel like this could be necessary to get offtopic whatever you want in this site (outside of the Nerd Thread), since we talk all about movies, not just MLP. (Although you can talk about MLP movies such as EqG or the 2017 film too. This ain’t the "no pony" edition)

You can also talk about box office performances and stuff about film critics.

As someone would say, "Let’s All Go to The Movies!"

Apollo 18 was a horror movie that I thought was great. It had so much unknown about it, and the unknown is what scares me a lot.

One of the most underrated film series is the Final Destination series. Most of the consensus I’m hearing about it is that it’s mostly okay and mediocre and in the case of the 4th movie, below average. What’s even sadder is that New Line Cinema stated that they have no interest in making another movie and that the 5th one is the last.

But yeah, anyway, back to Terminator, I just watched Genisys for the first time today and my god it was a goddamn train wreck. I could not for the life of me figure out the plot or why John Connor was taken over by Skynet and turned into molecular metal or whatever the christ he was supposed to be. And the idea of having a universal, catch-all "do everything" social platform like Genisys that controls all aspects of our lives? Laughable, absolutely laughable in a capitalist economy. There is no fucking way any software/media company would be allowed to get that powerful. Even Google and Facebook aren’t that. Google doesn’t control everything, and Facebook doesn’t actually control anything, except maybe your eyeballs while you should be doing other things.

Man, Independence Day did not age well. Sorry to those who like him, but fuck Will Smith. He is a cringeworthy actor with some of the lamest dialogue I’ve ever seen in a film. Him and Jeff Goldblum combined to provide what is still the cringiest duo in all of movies. The film is built upon such presumptuous nonsense and is so intellectually dumb that if you think about the plot for more than a few seconds you get a headache.

We don’t get enough scary movies these days. Today, they’re all gore, but aren’t really scary.

I’ve probably said this before, but I’m going to say it again: I can identify every single time when CG is used in a movie. And they all look fake to me. I don’t understand why filmmakers keep using it when it all looks fake to some extent. Nevermind that, I know why they use it. It’s because of money. It’s far cheaper to use CG for complex action scenes and exotic ideas than to create physical props. But physical props at least look real, because they are real. No matter how technically advanced the dinos in Jurassic Park movies get, they will always look fake. The bus crashing in Genisys looked fake. The city in the dreamworld of Inception looked fake. And, years removed now, I can see how fake everything in James Cameron’s Avatar looks.

It’s just bad. It removes my sense of immersion when I see this crap, and there’s no end in sight to any of it. When will filmmakers realize that the human eye can immediately detect false reality?

I just watched 10 Cloverfield Lane for the first time.

Spoiler alert: It was bad. Bigger spoiler alert: It was aliens.

Like, are you kidding me? I predicted the end of the movie years ago when the first trailer came out and I saw the light over the farmhouse. I mean, it could have done a double swerve on me, but NO, it did ONE BIG SWERVE right into the wall. The first half or thereabouts is just fine, but then it starts to steadily descend into camp and hokey garbage until you’re just left with… yeah.

So may plot threads left unexplained, so many plot holes. An insult to my intelligence.
