"but they are among the worst vampire movies ever made "

FAKE NEWS.



"- and that's coming from someone who loves the first two films. "

l0l

So you deny that it's possiible to fancy something that is considered low quality? Can a music albumn not be bad and we still like a single song off it? It also happens with games all the time, we could like one element from a game, show or movie and the other elements could be awful. I suppose I could lie and say the From Dusk Til Dawn films are great but what would be the point?

I wonder how many man years have gone to waste in discussing that scene, just watch it again and move on.

Probably only a couple since the show only came out a couple years ago, bit it's the first time I have discussed it or thought to anyway. I probably won't dwell on it but I may bring it up on a From Dusk Til Dawn forum if the occasion should so arise :p

Rewatched the Melanistic Leopard and I'm not sure how I feel about it anymore. The parts I liked before I still liked but the things that I didn't like about it seemed so much worse. My wife thinks I'm being too critical of certain plot points and maybe she's right because I've also noticed that I'm a lot less forgiving of things I would have probably given a pass before. I think I need to sleep on it.

Ant Man and Wasp had me rolling. Michael Pena is the best sidekick ever.

Michael Pena absolutely deserves his rise. I hope he gets a great leading role at some point.

So is remake of Disney cartoons but with humans the new superhero comic adaptation? Will I have to expand my latitude of loathing? I don't want to spread it too thin and wide, because if things keep going this direction I might yet need it. A lot of it.   :getlost:

Quality of live action Disney movies aren't even close to Super-Hero adaptations so the answer is NO.

Unless of course you consider Mowgli's Story and Kim Possible in the same league as The Avengers ;)


Anyways, I welcome them because I know one in ten will interest me, someone else will be interested in what I don't like and I'm sure there are people who will live all Disney live action movies for all the right reasons - it's not like they have put one out yet that is truly bad but there's always purists. It's not rare for a live action adaptation to be better than the cartoons, but it's a matter if making the audience convinced enough to agree - that's the trick. It's no different from people whining about a remake when the remake is actually better, really.

I, for one, hated the new Alice movies because the overuse of terrible cgi but LOVED the original live action Alice In Wonderland movie from the 80's which was better than the cartoon. I suppose, mire than anything, it's just a matter of timing for each individual and how relative the casting is. Some people won't go see a movie if it has one person casted that they don't like. Sounds extreme but it happens abd I don't think this is any different, same is true for the opposite though. I will go see Dumbo just because it has Eva Green (who I follow for years), before that I didn't care for seeing it at all.
