    I'm not sure I'd like the guy personally, but he has made several good films.

    Never had the desire to be modish and watch his other Silly Bullshit. Suburban white boys trying to sell woof tickets about their badiousity have left me cold since the 70's.

    I've tried to like superhero/comic based movies but I just can't seem to enjoy them. My wife and I are big movie goers and we both feel that we must be missing something.

    My current top 10 movies:
    Bravehart
    The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
    A River Runs Through It
    Jeremiah Johnson
    A Good Year
    No Country For Old Men
    Legends of The Fall
    Pulp Fiction
    Josey Wales
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind

    Interstellar was probably one of the better movies in the last year. Argo was also a damn good movie.

    The most under-appreciated science fiction film is Forbidden Planet. This movie delves into more complex issues of the human existence. It stars Leslie Nielsen (way before is Airplane days...), Walter Pidgeon, and Anne Francis. It's worth 90 minutes of your time.

    So being tired of movies with painfully predictable story arcs, no surprises and hum drum dialogue makes somebody a potential troll? I liked the first Iron Man movie, plodded through the 2nd one and after watching the 3rd one, my only thoughts were 'what did the 2nd and 3rd films do that the 1st film didn't?'.

    They were the same as most superhero sequels: 'I'm a superhero' > 'Something bad happened oh no!' > 'Everything is fine now, here's a cliffhanger'.

    I don't know what to say about a guy who doesn't like superhero movies.
    The last one I thoroughly enjoyed was Watchmen. Mainly because I didn't finish it thinking 'well, that's that over, guess I'll probably have to watch the next one when it inevitably comes out in two years time'. I went into it thinking I'd get just another superhero movie and got something completely different. I'd gladly re-watch that over any of the recent by the numbers superhero movies.

    But that punk director, whose career began renting videos in Manhattan Beach, CA, and whose name I will not waste the energy to type, is a waste of skin and an oxygen thief. I only once saw one of his movies involuntarily when visiting family friends who disappointed me by showing one of his movies they rented.
    I'm with you fuck that douche bag. After what he has said about law enforcement I won't watch another one of his movies again.

    I thought that movie was very good, and very scary.

    I am thoroughly surprised at this statement and am having myself a chuckle. Not that I disagree.
