Safety Not Guaranteed is not your normal time travel comedy/drama/romance/mystery hybrid.
“Safety Not Guaranteed is personal. It is intimate. It is about the emotional needs the idea of time travel satisfies. I feel it is an honest movie that speaks to what people are going through in their everyday lives. It doesn’t feel manufactured.”
– Colin Trevorrow
What is shocking is just how entertaining Men in Black 3 turns out to be, and even though as sequels go it’s highly unnecessary, that didn’t make the smile on my face after watching it invisible.
Battleship is pure cheese, and while that doesn’t make it good that also doesn’t make it a disaster, and while the proceedings are certainly waterlogged beyond repair that doesn’t mean the vessel itself is in danger of sinking.
All I can say is that I hope Whedon does return to the helm, because after this movie the thought of The Avengers assembling without his assertively assured guidance is something I have difficulty pondering.
I was blown away by The Hunger Games.
Like the original Iron Man 2 is a movie I don’t particularly mind but don’t exactly love, either, and if I didn’t say that in so many words in regards to the first film not doing so as far as this sequel goes isn’t a mistake I plan on making twice.
This new Hulk might have its moments and the character might still have his angry superpowers, but that doesn’t make the film anything close to incredible.
Not to say that this inaugural adventure of Iron Man soars very high, but it does get off the ground, and as far as first chapters in what is sure to be an ongoing story is concerned, at least for right now that’s going to have to be enough.
