seriously, how does gamedev not have a movie thread?

Oluseyi hasn't been around in awhile... 

 

Anyway, to contribute:

 

New movies: Iron Man 3, Star Trek, Gatsby

 

Older movies: Birdemic, Primer

 

Movies I'm going to see soon: Now You See Me, Man of Steel

 

My thoughts on them:

 

Iron Man 3: Better than the second, but not as good as the first. I think the Iron Man series never really had a good, solid villan. I would have liked to see a better villan.

 

Star Trek: Awesome. I really enjoyed it. I kept thinking of Smauglock Holmes, though, to be honest. I've never seen the older Star Treks, so now I want to see The Wrath of Kahn because apparently it is pretty much the same (but since they're on a different timeline from the original Spock (and crew), it's a bit different). I didn't think it was super duper awesome (I decided to sleep the second time I watched it), but it was worth seeing (but maybe not twice).

 

Gatsby: Never been a fan of the book. I just tagged along with friends. I feel like if I would have liked the book, I would have liked the movie.

 

Birdemic: WATCH THIS MOVIE! Seriously. Just... watch it. I made my local video store get it (my friend works there), and my friend has since made it her "dare" to watch it (so now in the video store, there's a sign by the movie that says: "Cracy's movie dare: watch this movie all the way through to the end. We are not responsible for any brain damage you may suffer.").

 

Primer: I want to like it, but I feel like it was more confusing than it needed to be. I liked the story, and I liked the ending (and watched it again (or at least half watched it again)), but I felt like they could have made it at least a little bit easier to grasp what was going on.

 

 

 

TV series I've watched recently:

 

Continuum: I enjoyed this. I'm a sci-fi guy. I'm looking forward to the next season.

 

Arrested Development: I'm halfway through the new season. It's good so far. I don't feel like it's knock your socks off good, but I am certainly enjoying it.

 

I think that's it for now... I'm always looking for a new sci-fi show to watch.
