Yes, it was a superhero movie. But it was a good superhero movie. After they shoved all the character exploration out of the way, the last act was all flashy and explosive but ... well, I did pay to see an action movie. I like flashy explosive things. I did spend a lot of time tallying up offscreen civilian death, though.

And there's a definite plus in seeing it at a midnight showing, when the entire theater is filled with people like you. There's something infectious about the cheering and realizing that you're not the only person in the world who appreciates badass martial prowess for the sake of badass martial prowess.

I was most interested in seeing how they would be able to make a movie balanced between ten stars. I think they succeeded.
I can understand this. I can't remember the last time I've been to the movies when the audience hasn't been terrible. Recently someone actually answered their phone and started having a conversation, and when someone hushed them, she went on a long rant about her right to be on her phone and stuff. Some people.

On topic, I saw The Hunger Games recently. I like what they did with it - I liked the added scenes with President Snow and the Gamemaker. On the topic of bad audiences, though, besides me and my friend there was one other person in the theatre - a middle aged man who seemed displeased to see there were other people in the theatre (it was a matinee). He sat in the back and at one point his chair kept creaking. Don't want to imagine what was going on back there.

Recently, and in no particular order, I've seen Titanic 3D, Wrath of the Titans, 21 Jump Street, How I Spent My Summer Vacation, The Lorax 3D, The Woman in Black and This Means War back in March. I hated This Means War though.

I'm actually looking forward to see The Hunger Games, The Avengers, annnnnd maybe Battleship or American Pie 4: American Reunion.

The Avengers - don't think I need to elaborate how great that was.

Krull - a really crappy Star Wars rip off from 1983(?) that had Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane in it. I watched it last night with some friends while drinking. It's hilariously bad. It's on netflix if anyone's interested.

Just saw "Fireproof" very touching.

I love that movie. <333 The story is addicting that I've watched it for several times.

Anyhow, I only watch movies in HBO and Star Movies. (I'm a boring person) The last movie that I've watched is Step Up 3. I think the dance step is okay, but I like their costume at the last part.
