Did no one go see Battleship?

Reports showed Taylor Kitsch and two of his friends at one screening... :shuffle:

:yikes: :scream:

Read some reviews of Prometheus, and they sounded pretty positive. Not groundbreaking, but a solid movie.

Did no one go see Battleship?

I was checking Rottentomatoes for reviews on Prometheus a few days ago, but didn't see any. Are some reviews popping up?

I saw the new Wes Anderson movie, "Moonrise Kingdom" last night, which I really enjoyed. It was very cute, funny, heartfelt, quirky without being too quirky that it's annoying. Love the cinematography, costume design, sets....

It sucks that Bruce Willis is stereotyped in a lot of action roles because he had a very nuanced performance here. Loved his character.

From the previews shown at the theater, I really want to see Beasts of the Southern Wild (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LA6FFnjvvmg), as well as Ruby Sparks and Safety Not Guaranteed wich were posted here.

PeterG, I really appreciate you opening these threads!

I saw previews for these the other day and agree they look very interesting!

I've been finding that RottenTomatoes hasn't been working properly for me for the past couple of weeks. The home page doesn't load any content, and although their search bar works and does load the movie-specific URL, it's another blank page.

BUT you can still get the relevant info if you do a Google search for "rotten tomatoes prometheus" for example, and see the summary that pops up on Google. As of a minute ago, it was at 89% with 18 reviews.

I wonder if that tiny, little girl in Beasts will be an Oscar contender. A bit early I know....

Snow White and the Huntsman doesn't interest me that much, but I've seriously considered going to see it just for the Les Mis trailer. :D

Kristen Stewart as Snow White is like casting Marilyn Monroe as Eleanor Roosevelt.

Many people are unaware that Walt Disney created Snow White with Eleanor Roosevelt as the role model.

There's a movie reviewer on the local CBC radio with whom I agree about 90% of the time ... so for what it's worth, his two reviews for the weekend were:

Snow White and the Huntsman: marginally positive review just for Charlize Theron and the visuals. Kristen Stewart not completely awful. Chris Hemsworth does a Scottish Thor.

Moonrise Kingdom (http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/the-buzz/2012/06/film-review-moonrise-kingdom.html): 5 out of 5, best thing Wes Anderderson has ever done, and while you might go for the big-name adult stars it's the kids who really make the film.

I got around to renting 'The Descendants' with George Clooney -----> meh. IDK. It was an interesting concept for a movie, but it didn't really hold my attention. I also found the Hawaiian music played during tender and melancholy moments to be annoying. Perhaps I expected more from all the accolades it received.
