  1. 1 immortal ins
    2 your next
    3 the butler
    4 were the millers
    5 the worlds end
    10 2 guns

  2. Love that picture of Hit Girl. Chloe Grace Moretz is amazing.

    • I know hit girl is the bomb they should make a part 3

    • shes hot

  3. Did you ever see the 1983 twlight zone movie. Watch that and you see why it is better for to have one singular story , which what They are planinng .They Tried revamping original Episodes and some worked better than others. Also let’s us not forget the last time a film tried using vignettes, movie 43. That movie was terrible. I ashamed to admit I was one of the few who saw it opening weekend and that was 90 mins I’ll never get back.

  4. Box office battle
    1. The mortal instruments
    2. The butler
    3. The world’s end
    4.we are the millers
    5. Your next
    10 2 guns

  5. Joseph Kosinski visuals are awesome story was lacking in Tron: Legacy but Oblivion(Which is in my Top 5 this yea) had an interesting character arc but both had great visuals & soundtrack. I think if they did an intricate plot with interconnected story with great visuals like it would make for an Oblivion-esque type movie and that could make for a great jumping point.

    Sliders + Doctor Who + Sunshine = Interstellar

    • More Sunshine, a bit of Sliders, no Doctor Who = the best formula from those ingredients if that’s the case ;)

      • What about Stargate?

        • What about Quantum Leap?

  6. I think you guys were overanalytical with this movie. While is wasn’t as enjoyable as the first, it wasn’t as bad as how you guys discussed.

  7. You guys were WAAAAAY to negative about this movie. I absolutely loved the first Kick-Ass. Its one of my favorite comic book films of all time. Kick-Ass 2 is hands down, the best comic book movie of the summer and maybe even movie of the year for me so far. Maybe its because I’m a young geeky guy and I can relate to Kick-Ass alot but this movie was fantastic. I agree, its not as smart and satirical as the first but I found it more entertaining. I thought the action was good and the cast was amazing. Some characters were underused but Chris Plasse as the Mother F_cker was awesome and one of my favorite performances of the year. I hope a Kick-Ass 3 happens, if Mark Millar leaves this for the crappy X-Men/FF crossover I will lose my mind. I know I’m in a major minority here but I love this movie and a third has to happen. Best movie trilogy ever.

    • @deadpool87.I just got back seeing KA2 with some co-workers of mine,and by far we all enjoyed it way more than the original.The problem is that it didn’t perform well at the box office over the weekend so I doubt there will be a third.Even if the fans started something up for it to be a third,i think Chloe and Aaron Johnson are done playing these roles.They have bright futures ahead of them,especially Chloe Moretz.They also said they took a beating on they’re bodies making this film so I know they want a big payoff for it.Sadly enough it didn’t happen so I know they wouldn’t want to do that again.Look at this way,at least we got two good films we can watch whenever we want instead of nothing.

  8. Interstellar’s plot: They pass through the wormhole and end up in a parallel Earth’s Cretaceous period.

  9. Whod win in a fight, mother russia or bane?

    Also, what do you think of Morris Chestnut as John Stewart Green Lantern?

    You guys probably dont want it, but Id like a kickass 3.

    • If its comic Bane, Bane. If its DKR Bane, that’d be a good fight.
      I’d rather see Chestnut take on Black Panther.
      Kick-Ass 3 HAS TO HAPPEN!!!

  10. 1. mortal instruments
    2. The butler
    3. The world’s end
    4.we are the millers
    5. Your next

    I enjoyed ‘ Kick Ass 2′ despite the obvious flaws, Loved Jim Carrey..

  11. You guys nitpicked KA2 to the bone.I mostly disagreed with everything you guys said but still enjoyed listening to you all.The only thing I thought should have been at the end was kick ass one friend should have told him he was the reason why his father was killed,and should’ve asked for forgiveness.He was the one who told the motherf**ker that was actually kick ass’ dad in jail.Oh,and kick ass girlfriend didn’t cheat on him,she just said that because she thought he was cheating on her with hit girl.

    • Haha… What’s up with your name? I knew a couple robots called that.

  18. Battleship = Awesome! Sorry Rob. ;)

    I noticed the same thing about Joseph Kosinski’s directorial work. The attention to detail really helps selling a lot of scenes. For example the fact that parts of the seatbelts and Julias hair fly around when Jack maneuvers his aircraft, and that they actually tilt their heads to keep level with the horizon, really sells the illusion of them flying with that thing. Stuff like that makes all the difference compared to other movies that never seem to convey any sense of excitement in CGI action scenes, because they forget about any physical interaction with the environment that would make it believable. Things like that don’t seem to matter much, as Anthony claims, but we do pick up on them at least subconsciously. I most definitely do. I take the drone hunt in Obilivion over that ridiculous speeder chase on Episode II any day.

    Loved Kofi’s Marky Mark impression again. :D

  19. Is there anyway y can add .5 for your polls? I gave KA2 a 3,but it felt like 3.5 IMHO

  20. I just spit up my soda listening to “Spoiler Alert! KAAHHHHHHH!!!!!”
