Just got back from Transformers 13 (or whatever they're up to now).

By this point, anyone who goes to see a Transformers film knows what they're in for - stupid jokes, giant robot fights, pretty women in revealing tops, Mark Wahlburg in a wifebeater, and explosions.

It delivered on all that.

Whilst not a wonder of filmography, it was a solid 2.5 hours of decent fun, and didn't seem to really drag (although you could tell it was a long film, if that makes sense). The plot could have done with trimming, some characters weren't needed, and AMERICAFUCKYEAH was a bit overdone, but... I can look past that for robot-on-robot action. Also dinosaurs and dragons.

A fun film, but maybe not exactly a good one. If you like the look from the trailers, you'll probably enjoy it, otherwise give it a miss.

I recently saw Wonder Woman and unlike the rest of world I have to say I was a bit disappointed by the movie. I get that the whole naivety thing was intentional (though I admit that at the beginning I thought that the producers went for a very simplistic portrayal of WW1) but it didn't really work for me and instead seriously lessened my enjoyment of the movie.

On the other hand the romance was not nearly as bad as I feared and the action scenes were top-notch so I still managed to enjoy most of the film.

(Though the scene where they use a public phone in Belgium to talk to "Ares" back in London was so unbelievable that it took my quite a while to get back into the movie...)

Newest Dark Tower trailer:

I am actually pretty excited about it. I'm interested in knowing how going into this movie completely blind will be. Usually I've read the books for the adaptations I'm seeing.

The Dark Tower looks great. Idris Elba is a great choice but he doesn't look weathered enough for my conception of the gunslinger. I was expecting a touch of gray hair at the temple, give him a more wary face.


Recently saw Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. The plot was completely nonsensical, Ben Affleck was an okay Batman, and the color filter in action scenes is soul-draining-- but the action was pretty good and it had some truly spectacular visuals.

I've given up on Zack Snyder making movies with real plot. I just accept them as some hybrid of surreal music video with lots of spectacular visuals. If he added color back into his movies and decided to have a semi competent editor who dealt solely with ploy holes Snyder's movies would be spectacular because of their visual power.

I think Patty Jenkins proved D.C. Can be good.

DC needs to get rid of Snyder if they want to compete with Marvel. It's a director issue.

That said...apparently Whedon is finishing up Justice League?
