Greatest Film of 2009!
Recently I have been thinking "god, they don't make classic films anymore". Of course there are exceptions such as 'The Dark Knight' but there are too many brainless blockbusters nowadays to think straight. This is the greatest film I have seen in years. It was like watching 'The Godfather' for the first time: it just had everything! A complete masterwork. The plot seems simple yet isn't. You really have to just the watch the Watchmen (sorry, I couldn't resist) to appreciate it. I have currently read the novel twice up to now and shall read it for the rest of my life!
All the negative reviews are down to this:
A) they didn't understand it B) they didn't read the Graphic Novel C) they prefer the Graphic Novel or D) they were expecting your run of the mill crappy action film
Please give the film a chance. It is very close to the novel but obviously a more cinematic and exciting experience than the novel (but still a good adaption). Amazing, amazing film.
Nothing beats the original!
Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons...
In my opinion, Gerry Anderson's greatest Supermarionation series if not the best series he ever made. This show is so full of memorable characters, quotes and of course the theme tune. It is very exciting and tense.
Well, I am a slightly blood-thirsty person! and i quite like violent films, so Captain Scarlet is great! There is sometimes a bit of blood, but nothing too extreme. This is why Anderson series' are cult classics; they know how fare to go with violence and themes. This is why it is ideal for fans of all ages! Nothing is too complicated or over-done.
The voice acting is probably the best of any Supermarionation show and almost every episode keeps you glued to the screen! The only thing which has stopped me from giving this show a 10 is the fact that I wish they were a little longer to develop supporting characters. Never the less most of the episodes are good at their own length.
I think that this is superior to the New Captain Scarlet computer generated show because everything is REAL. The problem with CGI shows is that explosions and effects are not real which I think is not as impressive. The visual effects by Derek Medding's team for Captain Scarlet are great like everything he did.
I grew up watching this series and hope that many more people believe that this show is better than the new one. It is dark and authentic, so what more do you want? Long live Captain Scarlet! Thanks for reading, godzilla1991
Superman Returns (2006)
You can see that Bryan Singer, the director, is very faithful to the original films but updates the story for modern audiences. Thats the only problem with this film. The main story takes a long time (about half of the film) to get going; Lex Luthor spends a long time in his basement destroying a miniature metropolis with a shard of kryptonite.
The special effects are amazing and will have you on the edge of your seat. They have really moved on since the 1978 film through computer graphics. Brandon Routh takes over from the great Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel and he is great! He not only looks a lot like him but moves and sounds just like him! He is EXCELLENT! Kate Bosworth is not very impressive as Lois Lane. She doesn't seem very alive and full of energy like Margot Kidder was. Also Lex Luthor played by Kevin Spacey is not brilliant. He doesn't seem as sinister or threatening as Gene Hackman was. Its a real shame that these two characters have not got much to do and are not exciting because it lets the film down. Superman also gets beaten up and defeated a lot in this movie which is not right.
If you are a Superman fan then see this movie but it is not as beautifully filmed as the 1978 original.
7/10 see the original
