    Haywire was fine. I enjoyed the film, even though it can be fine at time.

    I never saw Priest. Wasn’t interested in it.

    John Carter was fucking terrific as far as I’m concerned. Just so much fun, and far from being an underrated movie. Very underrated.

    Never saw Machete or Machete Kills. Never been much of a fan of grindhouse style movies.

    As for Tomorrowland. I think there’s potential. Brad Bird is writing the script too you know.

    I actually Did not like Haywire at all. I thought the fight scenes were great. They looked painful as they should . I thought the story had to resort to a big exposition dump to explain itself.
    I was presently surprised that priest wasnt unwatchable it was ok.
    I thought John Carter was criminally underrated. Having a fun story and a strong female character were great. It suffered from the disney advertising strategy Of not advertising after the first weekend doesnt go well. Seriously I only ever saw anything on it at 3 am.
    Machete Kills was fun. It was dumb as hell and was in no way a good movie but I had fun.

    Also I completely agree with Scott on Vampire Hunter D. (though its one of my favorite anime’s ever) (though even I admit the first one isnt very good i still love it)

    Scott to me is rather pretentious but i dont mind his reviews because its nice to see different perspectives on things.

      I appreciate your words, but it rather bothers me when people are quick to claim that I am pretentious, because the classic definition; “having or showing the unpleasant quality of people who want to be regarded as more impressive, successful, or important than they really are” would imply that I don’t value other opinions as much as my own, or that I find my opinion to be the only valid one; which couldn’t be any further from the truth.

      I go out of my way to immerse myself in as many different opinions on a subject as possible. I prefer an opinion to differ from my way; one, to create a conversation; and two, so that I can inform myself to something I might be missing. I soak up as much information as I can, both objective and subjective, so that I am more informed.

      With that said, this might just come down to a matter of taste: I’m just not a huge exploitation fan. It’s not my jam. I prefer movies that I’m well aware won’t appeal to most people. Besides really like HAYWIRE, there are elements to all of Cecil’s picks that I enjoyed, I just didn’t like the complete package. I never go into a film wanting to dislike it, I want my time to be rewarding, and I look for things that I enjoy despite the whole.

      Still, I really didn’t like Priest.
