So over anything superhero.

I still read Marvel's comics, but I rented the Avengers on demand and paused it 20 minutes in. Then never got back to it before the rental expired. I'm not over superheroes, but the movies? Sorry, plots are retarded and it's just 90 minutes of CGI explosions. No interest to see the new Spider-Man either. I'll watch the new Batman flick, but I 'acquired' a crappy... 'version' and the Bane voice had me flip it off in ten minutes. These movies are overdone and cliche. Give me Prometheus, Cabin in the Woods, or even cloud atlas although I've yet to see it.

And good lord on Paranormal Activity. I watched the first three, but can someone explain how people are still paying to see that trash? They film it in a week. They probably write it in an hour, less time than the film lasts.

It's 80 minutes of some hack B-unit director filming a bunch of "boo!" shots with zero plot aside from the first minute and the last. And while I expect a "that's any horror movie", the genre is a guilty pleasure of mine. At least even the ****ing Slasher films have *some* plot. Ooh, jock and cheerleader. Stoner. Kill the black guy first. (Not a racist comment, by the by. Referring to black dudes always dying first.) Then there's the "cannibals, undead freak, or is it one of the kids murdering the others?" The Saw movies were produced nearly as fast and cheap, even they had a trillion times the plot.

And while I realize it will flop and no one's going to see it, god damn I saw another trailer for Silent Hill 2 and I want either a time machine or to go into a coma until Friday. Sean Bean returns, Pyramid Head, Malcolm McDowell, Carrie Anne Moss, Radha Mitchell back and Unger the creepy cultess too? That movie is going to be a 90 minute horror orgasm for me.

Avengers is a great flick.

Also, I thought Iron Man 3 was cool looking. :(

iron man 3 could rival the first one as being the best in the series.  it's based on the extremis story angle which was very cool and if they do it the right way it's going to be bad ass.  also mandarin is one of the best villains in iron man history (if not the best) and ben kingsley is going to do a good job with it.  i am soooo super stoked to see this one.

avengers was awesome - and I mean awesome - but i was so obsessed with iron man, it really impressed me.

Finally got around to seeing Argo.  Good flick, very suspenseful.

Movies I want to see:
Argo
The Master
Wreck It Ralph
Anna Karenina

Last night saw Silver Linings Playbook. The plot is kinda ridiculous at its core, and when you summarize it in a sentence you'll sound like an idiot*, but the movie's very well-crafted, very well-acted, and written with such intelligent plotting that I had to swallow my cynicism and admit to enjoying every minute. Robert De Niro gives a hell of a motivational speech. Also, there's a subplot about sports fandom which is absolutely freaking hilarious.

Loved the book... was hoping the movie would be similar... but this looks like a generic zombie movie.

Having said that, it does look like decent blockbuster action.
