..and the unfollowing for spoilers begins.
Wreck-it Ralph isn’t out in the UK until February, this is The Muppets all over again.
…and people wonder why I don’t like disney.
…and people are wrong, they are far too hard on it. It’s a very good movie.
[I will note that most people are saying it bad because it failed to live up to their individual expectations, that’s not the films fault that’s your own.]
Admittedly there are some plot holes, silly science stuff (sound in space was one that bothered me) and it does jump the shark a little at the end. But all of that doesn’t equal a bad film, especially when it’s competing with elements such as a very good cast (Fassbender nailed it as David, almost stole the show) and a cool visual style (even the 3D was good, well passable a couple of shots worked with it, like the map table thing.) although the story is a little pfft but holds resonance within it’s context (it’s not a direct prequel to Alien but is within the same galaxy and contains crossover elements.)
But what a really impressed with was the tension, it was perfect. I was genuinely scared multiple times(*), and that doesn’t usually happen for me in films (occasionally I’ll get anxious about cringey films but never actually scared, I had to lock myself into a sitting pose so I wouldn’t jump at those surprise moments.)
It’s definitely worth your time, a very enjoyable film. But reign in your expectations it obviously wasn’t going be the greatest cinematic release because they all made that, it’s called Back to the Future.
[Edit: Also honestly, I wouldn’t be against seeing more space-age surgery in 3D.]
Just read that those photos were not of Iron Patriot but of the War-Machine armour branded. Phew.
If they had tried to crowbar in the Dark reign stuff but without Osborn it would’ve been a Spider-Man 3 level of train wreck.
I’m still a little nervous about the four (?) villains in the film, especially with the Extremis plot. But I still trust Shane Black to deliver something pretty incredible.
I still cannot get over how impeccable the cast of Hot Fuzz is.
