We're running out of Batman titles
When one starts to think the world went crazy, you just need to get here to read your article Ali, and everything gets back to normal.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Just seen it. Awesome stuff.

Singer nailed it like in old days.
Also, he basically rebooted the franchise, which is cool cause it allows for completely new shit to happen. Unless Bryan is put in jail for his wrongdoings, hopefully allegations will turn out to be made up.

RoboCop
Watched it the other night. Expected it to be worse than it actually was. Kinda watchable. Liked special effects, most of them were pretty good. Maybe some shaky cam could be removed. The biggest problem for me was the fact that the film didn't know what is its main theme - dumb action or philosophical issues of what means to be a human, existential questions, etc. Too much of a mix for my liking, it should stick to either of those, otherwise I'm confused as to what I am supposed to feel while watching. Or maybe I stick too much to internal directives.

Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014)
Great actor, indeed. One of those from the First League Forever.

Thanks for this article Ali.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Even after reading this 5 star review I cannot find anything 'classic' in the movie. Nothing new that has been already shown. Shouting Leo - check, fat Hill behaving like he's retarded - check, drug abuse - check, nudity - check.
A story told from Jordan's perspective (based on his own book) doesn't give a crap about people he tricked, and now we are tricked into buying tickets to see his 'career' proving that being a prick getting wealthy does really pay off. A few years in a prison and you can even write a book and then get some more money. And now it's getting Oscars as well.
Sad.

PS. The funniest moment:
During plane flight, it turns out that our lovable criminals having no issues with cheating, drug abusing, screwing all that breathes and has vagina - they in fact are afraid of only one thing - saying out loud a word 'nigger'.

Did you just do there 'Seth Macfarlane Oscars' or...?

Anyways, liked Wolvie taking crap on a front lawn.
Also, too bad you ditched idea of Italian posters, looked damn promising. Fuck the political corectness, what's funny about making jokes about oneself when you can do it about anyone.

Stop the online film blogging community, I want to get off!
Usually posting not so serious comments so not sure how this one would sound, but I just felt a need to say that I didn't get offended (although possibly I could constitute this not-so-worthy userbase). Personally, I think every bigger community includes mostly morons since after all it is a micro version of the whole population which, hardly arguable, is made of poor quality people.

So, going back to the minorities - the contributors of this site never read like people who write because they have to. More like they just love doing it. And do it pretty well.
Add to it the proper amount of black humour and you get a site you visit every day in a search for a new article.
Last but not least, the technical(?) aspect. The website has intuitive layout, is neat, clear, has everything that is needed while it doesn't use all those things we hate when it comes to browsing. It feels a bit 'retro' (in a positive way) when compared to those flashy lens-flarish sites where a reader gets a visual clusterfuck. I would say it so user-friendly because creators use it themselves all the time. And not for work but rather for entertainment because their work here looks like great fun while working. That makes this site special.

Other, less successful, rebooted movie face comparisons
This could be a regular feature.

Sidenote - Robocop with moustache, how awesome is that?

Riddick
I just realized that Riddick is Rid + dick.

Can't understand why it took me so many years to notice it. Getting older, presumably.

Lovelace
Thank you sir for your answer but...
"It's fine" means that you already used it as a whacking material? Or you just compared it to other whacking materials you had used in the past or possibly you plan to use it and you think it could be 'fine'?
If the first case, then I hope your review was not partial in any moment.
