I'd watch it again for just a glimpse of Katee Sackhoff's boobies again. She has a fantastic body if you didn't know. Damn. Anyway, I look forward to the next movie in the series.

Oblivion - I was caught off guard with how much I liked this movie. The visuals were fantastic, and these days I'm a sucker for a storyline or plot that is even remotely original. Definitely worth your time if you haven't seen it.

2nd Oblivion is being made, apparently a prequel.

Count me in the happily surprised with how good it was crowd.

Cruise has actually been doing some good projects post going batshit crazy - MI Ghost Protocol, Jack Reacher, etc

This whole Ip Man movie series is weird. There's Ip Man 1 and Ip Man 2 directed by Wilson Yip. There was initially supposed to be a third one to detail his relationship with Bruce Lee, but some of the players have said they don't want to make a 3rd, though Yip does.


Then there is Grandmaster, Ip Man: the Final Fight and Ip Man: Birth of the Legend, all of which are biopics by two different directors. Really weird, because all of these came out within a few years of each other (from like 2008-2013).

On top of all of that, there is overlap in the actors between the franchises, but they play different characters in the different franchises.

Anyway I think I'll probably watch Birth of the Legend, because I'm curious about his life prior to when we meet him in Ip Man 1.


Edit: I could be totally wrong about the summary above, but I got curious and that's what about 10 minutes of researching on the internet yielded.

Yep, rewatched Oblivion this morning. One of the best scifi movies of the last few years.

I like it as well, and I didn't understand why it got so much hate in the other movies thread.

Forget Ip Man, Wong Fei Hung is where it's at.

I like it a lot as well. Yet, I don't really trust my judgment on this one, since I have somewhat of an infatuation with Olga Kurylenko. I liked Hitman as well, and I hear it was horrible.

Agreed on Oblivion. I liked it a lot.

Had really low expectations going in, and that probably helped. But it was a pretty interesting story.

Cruise?

He's the reason I haven't seen Jack Reacher on Netflix yet.

(and I realize that doesn't make a lot of sense)

Jack Reacher was entertaining as hell.

Oblivion sucked. Looked great and had me intrigued but the reveal was weak.

Finally watched The Prestige. I liked it but to me, the "twist" at the end felt really cheap and I can't get over the fact that there was pretty much real magic used

I think you might find The Illusionist interesting too, then.

If you're into animated superhero flicks, Justice League: War was damn good. I won't say it's quite on the level of Crisis On Two Earths or Doom but it was, at the very least, pretty close.

It was a decent Justice League origin story and the animation was on point. My only complaint is that they made Green Lantern seem like a pussy and I'd rather have seen Aquaman instead of Cyborg (although I understand why Cyborg made more sense given the plot). Also, Wonder Woman put in a disgusting amount of work.
