Making homages to classic film sequences by more talented filmmakers isn't necessarily a bad thing, but JJ sure relies on it quite a bit, doesn't he?

Ken’s wrong on this one. This movie is not a piece of art. It’s a corny kid’s movie and sort of nostalgia piece for 30 somethings. Might as well do it right. Nothing of value is being compromised.

F that. I wanted Sonic with his weird ass human teeth. One reason to watch that movie and now it's gone.

I think it’s a known thing that 1999 was an exceptionally good year for movies, but if you scroll through this list it’s just staggering how deep and diverse (only thematically unfortunately) it is. I keep thinking I’ve finally passed all the good ones and another two or three come up and I think “holy [expletive], that too!”

I don't care about the Marvel/DC thing, but salty DC fans are super entertaining.

i dont think it really works though. BVS is partly [expletive] because they used the doomsday/death of superman so quickly.

tony died after 10 years of movies and appearances.
and eisenbergs luther sucked balls.
