    So I take it you didn't like Inception?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Inception

    Brother had never seen it, so when he came to visit this weekend we watched it. He said he really enjoyed it. I love that movie.

    No I really didn't. I mean it was interesting and certain scenes were cool, but overall it left me glad it was over

    Cracked is releasing its always-good annual recap of pop culture, starting with the movies. Jack O'Brien explains what some found so cynical about Skyfall:

    James Bond films have always had a privileged relationship to other movie franchises, almost like a legendary older sibling that gets away with **** the younger franchises would never even try. This year, the new Amazing Spider-Man caught hell for humping the still warm corpse of Sam Raimi's franchise after only five years, even though the Bond franchise only waits an average of three years when replacing the actor playing its superhero. The Bourne franchise was so nervous about switching the actor playing their super spy that they changed his name to Aaron Cross, kept Jason Bourne's name in the title of their reboot and set the whole thing in the background of the Matt Damon movies....

    Skyfall screenwriter John Logan said that he and director Sam Mendes "talked a lot about why a Bond movie is a Bond movie and not a Bourne" and ultimately decided that "it has to do with that intense seriousness and a pain that hurts." First of all, it's worth admiring the balls it takes to say that your central concern was differentiating your movie from the Bourne franchise when your movie opens with Bond floating face down and presumed dead after being shot due to a callous order from a reckless supervisor.


    The claim that Bond is about "intense seriousness and a pain that hurts" is even more baffling (unless you find sex to be excruciatingly painful, and also never watched a Bond movie). Of course, he's actually describing what differentiates the Dark Knight trilogy from other reboots, which makes sense, since Skyfall resembles that franchise as much as any previous Bond movie...

    Bond movies have always reflected whatever was considered cool at the time. Bond girls tell you what type of woman was hottest, his cars and suits track the heights in luxury fashion and his villains tell you how millionaires were secretly making their money. But Skyfall is the first Bond film that also seems to be sampling from the coolest blockbuster franchises of the moment, trying on their looks and themes like finely tailored suits.

    The Amazing Spider-Man.

    Rented an HD copy of the movie from Xbox Live, and since I'm a Spider-Man fan I liked it. Although, you can't really change the stuff up too much, it's basically a re-hash of the first Spider-Man, which was about his origin, except it's during his High School years, and Gwen Stacy is his love interest, played by the beautiful Emma Stone.

    Looking forward to the second one, which comes out around May 2014, I believe.

    I've watched that probably 20 times today. I cannot wait.

    Also, 2 very good choices of music in that trailer. First is Elegy by Lisa Gerrard/Patrick Murphy. Second is called Storm from the Elizabeth: The Golden Age score.

    This is going to be big. And good.

    Need a thumbs down button if you are going "meh" for the Superman trailer.

    I think this take on Superman is going to be great. They had some really good shots in the trailer too. Just hope it's good. Nothing can be as bad as Singer's Superman...he flippin made Superman a stalker (and a daddy).

    Finally saw Skyfall.

    Really enjoyed it. Had a more human feel to it. Really liked Bardem as the villian.

    Trailer came off as pretentious to me. Reminded me a bit of Ang Lee's Hulk.

    I think I'm just getting sick of the whole "woe is me, being a superhero is just the WORST!" That was what was so refreshing about Iron Man, and it looks like they're even going that route now.

    I would say I'm very interested, but not excited, for Man of Steel.

    I liked it the first two times I saw it, but every time after that (after my Superman blinders came off), I just kept finding things I didn't like about it and the list kept growing till I can't stand it.

    I mean, for goodness sake, the little kid killed one of the bad guys with a piano. Superman has never killed anyone, but his kid did!

    The whole plot was just dumb. Does Lex even think about anything other than Real Estate? I mean, they make him out to be one of the lamest villians of all time, especially with surrounding himself with idiots. And Lex is very smart.

    And then the whole stalker things was beyond creepy. Plus, the Routh was just too thin for the part.

    Okay this whole Skyfall and biting off the Dark Knight theme has to stop, its utterly silly. All 3 new Bond films have been very dark in mood tone and violence. Hell Casino Royale had a very gruesome scene where bond gets his nuts smashed repeatedly by a ****ing medicine ball. Never seen that kind of darkness in a Bond movie before. Batman Begins and Casino Royale were released one year apart which means both were probably in various stages of production at the same time, and certainly the scripts were well in stone. The darker trend of the Bond movies was very much intended without the success of the Batman Trilogy, of which I have not yet seen DKR. Infact it was a pendulum swing from the Pierce Brosnan films that feature hyper unrealistic action scenes with half million dollar super cars sliding around on their roof on ice and flipping back on to its wheels with ejector seat explosions. Or nanoskin on the car that makes it invisible, which was only used for 30 secs in the movie. And villians who have diamond specs incrusted in their face, and a korean dude secretly playing a white guy. This kind of over the top crap was really starting to hurt the Bond franchise, so they naturally decided to get a really raw, dark, and personal feel to the franchise. The last 3 bond films have been amazing in my opinion, with Casino being brilliant.

    Its really quite laughable that anyone could so loosely try to call out the Bond films like that.

    Came back from IMAX 3D of the Hobbit. Terrific. Everything I wanted as a LOTR fan.

    It's really not. This doesn't have to be a mutually exclusive event--Skyfall can (and in my opinion, is) be a good movie while taking inspiration from The Dark Knight (which the director has flat out stated he did). There's nothing wrong with it, but some of it was pretty obvious stuff. I even noticed Skyfall used a very similar line to one of the signature moments in Rises--the whole "permission to die" line. Obviously the films are so close in release dates where that is anything more than coincidence, but it is something that I (and the group of people I went to see the movie with) noticed.
