Yeah, I felt sorry for the guy since there were people off screen just tossing spiders in his mouth over and over again. But the spiders did nothing other than "be on him", while the Spanish moss strangled his retarded ass. Along with the occasional poor directing choice to show close ups of tarantula fangs before cutting back to more insidious Spanish moss.

I haven't seen the fog remake. I didn't really like the original when I was a kid, so felt no need to see a remake that was likely worse than the original.

i don't know what the statute of limitations is for a 1972 movie, but yeah, um.... spoiler?




lol, what the heck is a scorpion doing there at the very end? Are they indigenous to that region?

the soundtrack is compelling.

My daughter (2,5) is watching Frozen at least one time a day. I had forgotten how good that movie was. I remember back in the day it was criticized for not having a good villain, but in my opinion, Hans is a great bad guy. You just don't expect him to be, and there are almost no clues - he behaves exactly like a typical big-eyed naive and kinda bland Disney hero. And then becomes my favorite Hans-to-hate after Colonel Landa and Alan Rickman's (RIP) Gruber...

I watched John Wick on TV last weekend, I thought it was pretty ****e. Dumb revenge story (it doesn't get any dumber than this movie), graphically ultra-violent, Keanu, protagonist who takes down dozens of minions before ultimately getting to their boss, yada yada. It didn't do anything for me (or anything new for that matter), and I don't understand its success.

I thought John Wick was solid. I think it helped itself tremendously by having some cool action sequences that weren't ruined by ****ty shaky cam shots. I admit there were at least a couple of times where I was baffled why they didn't just kill Wick.

This article talks about Keanu's martial arts lineage and the decision to avoid all of the shaky cam/fast cutting that is basically cheating.

Watched Superman (the originals) with my 6 year old. he loved them. He's quite into super heroes at the minute, and plays the LEGO WiiU games a lot. He keeps seeing panels with the marvel stuff on Netflix and doesnt understand why he cant Watch them. Its a shame they tried to "darken" "realisticify" what should be basically inner Child Movies so that they're not so great with younger kids, who would be most excited to see them. I watched Ant Man to check if it would be OK. Nope. Iron Man. Nope. I did let him Watch the Silver Surfer Movie. I don't really know who they are appealing to by making the violence too "real". These films are not designed to win Oscars, just be dumb escapism. It was remarkable to me how much he enjoyed the original superman in all its campness but without the need for excessive gun shooting and stuff. The original 1960s batman was fantastic. I just wish there was a broader range of these kinds of Movies so you could sit and let your kids see Iron Man flying and having laser Eyes without having terrorists holding guns to peoples heads and threatening real Life executions in front of kids. Who the fuck needs that. same with Ant man and the stupid bad guy shooting shit. Just show the dude in the fucking ant suit running round and having fun for Christs sake /rant

Superman 3 scared the hell out of me as a kid. Heck, even Superman 2 when the chick kills the NASA astronaut by tearing off his badge on the moon (these guys were my heroes as a kid ).

Those movies weren't all smiles and sunshine for me as a young boy. I think Iron Man is just fine. You don't feel the violence like you do in those Superman movies, in my opinion.

That village scene in Iron Man alone probably disqualifies it as appropriate viewing for a 6 year-old, IMO. Hell, you could probably skip right to Iron Man 2. Everybody likes to shit on that movie but it's not all that bad: Sam Rockwell is a lot of fun and the last fight is Iron Man and War Machine destroying a bunch of robots rather than people (well, other than Whiplash, that is).

But I think I'd let my kids watch anything in any of the Iron Man movies over the scene in Superman 3 where the woman gets turned into a cyborg. Yeesh.

I watched Green Room, in which a punk band finds themselves under siege by a group of neo-nazis led by Patrick Stewart. Based on some comments here, I was expecting over the top gore, but there was really only a scene or two that were overly gross. As for the movie... eh. I will say that it kept you guessing, to a degree.

yes there is a world of difference between the violence in Superman and eg the Iron Man village scene. But its not just that its the overall tone (a more obvious difference is the original Batman movie, with all the superimposed KerPow and slapstick fighting), they are worlds apart and I really wonder why sometimes. It's probably just like the issue with a lot of boardgames, it gets spoiled by having to cater to the man child audience instead of just being unashamed in being what it is, escapist adventure that children can enjoy. Thanks for the tip on Iron Man 2, I will check it out. (also the heads up on S3, I dont remember any of that to be honest).

Both Superman 2 and 3 have some rough scenes. I remember being scared a bunch by both. Especially the killer machine in 3
