Fuck off did C3PO have a silver leg
Hey, has anyone here heard of the Mandela Effect? I used to think it never existed but now it seems to be everywhere. Was it always everywhere and I just didn't know about it or am I misremembering?

ಠ_ಠ Someone forgot to make these Allegiant posters actually match up
These are two separate posters so I don't see that making any difference. Besides, they've made an artistic choice to portray this - they should stick to it.

Fantastic Four (2015)
He makes a cameo as Captain Amazing.

You said it, weird Russian poster for lesser De Niro movie Bus 657
Guys! Don't look now but I think Mark-Paul Gosselaar just commented on the site!

The Transformers/Coen Bros Venn diagram
Huh. Yeah, no - that wasn't Steve Buscemi. It just sounded like him.

Gareth Edwards to direct another monster
Have you seen it yet, Chris? I was surprised how much monster action there was. I wouldn't say G-Zilla was relegated to the background at all.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
What Ali said. But also, 3 stars out of 5 doesn't automatically mean 60%. If you really want to break down the value of each star mathematically by percentage, you COULD say that the following applies:

1 star = 0-20%
2 stars = 20-40%
3 stars = 40-60%
4 stars = 60-80%
5 stars = 80-100%

So 3 stars could only be 40%, which you would think is rotten.

More to the point though, 3 out of 5 stars seems like a fair assessment to me because the film seemed average. And, while the film had many good points, I was ultimately disappointed by it so I considered it to be 'rotten' rather than 'fresh'.

But I would also always recommend that, with any review in any publication, people pay less attention to the ratings and summary judgments (which can often misrepresent a much fairer assessment) and focus on the main review and criticisms therein.

Plus, I hasten to add, OPINIONZ. lol.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
For all of IM2's MASSIVE faults, it still felt like it was trying something new in setting up the big superhero-team-up movie, which in a way was still exciting.

And as for it exploring too many avenues, I would argue that IM2's main issue wasn't the number of things it was trying to do, but its prioritisation, i.e. putting The Avenger set-up above its own story. In comparison, Captain America: The Winter Soldier does everything adequately, it's just trying to do too much at once.

But, y'know, OPINIONZ. lol.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
I was genuinely surprised by the backlash to this film, tbh. It's flawed and oversentimental, but otherwise good, solid all-round entertainment. Can't understand the 2* reviews.

Glad you liked it anyway, Kirsts.
