    My friends and I hung out last night to eat junk food and watch Robin Williams movies. First we watched Dead Poets Society, followed by Hook. I left after Hook but my friends proceeded to watch Aladdin.

    I've never seen Dead Poets Society so it was really interesting to see actors of the past when they were much younger (Ethan Hawke for example). Robin Williams was great in that movie. I also finally understand the whole "Seize the day" thing as seen in that one episode of Community, in the first season.

    I love Hook, I think it's a great movie and a really fun interpretation of Peter Pan. I also love the sound track.

    Beautiful movies. Rest in peace, Robin.

    oh i know i'm not really defending him. but it still wouldn't have such poor reviews if it wasn't michael bay. i really wish the guy would stop though. he learns absolutely nothing from criticism.

    though i guess that can be respected. he makes movies the way he likes to and they still make huge money.

    Comic book animated movies? Make Mine DC!

    Batman: Assault on Arkham

    [​IMG]

    Probably the best DC animated movie I've seen thus far, which is telling seeing how they're already the best in the biz. Deserving of its PG-13 rating, this movie pushes the boundaries of a western animation ratings board, which was fully appreciated on my part.

    The only bad thing I could say about the movie is it comes off as a Marvel Thunderbolts ripoff, but seeing as DC is the go-to company when it comes to animation, I'm positive that whatever DC had planned for a Thunderbolts story would've been than Marvel's adaptation, so that's hardly a complaint -if anything it's a "thank you". (love me some Thunderbolts)
    And trust me, you'll get over Batman having pupils while wearing the mask soon enough...

    Had a cool scene that'll remind you of Wanted, and another that self-referencing scene from Batman Returns.

    5/5, probably the 4th best movie I've seen all year

    I went and saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was...okay. The turtles were pretty douchy sometimes, and Megan Fox is no April O'Neil, although she is much better than the one in the new TV series. The plot was fine, even though some of it was densely movie-fied.

    I went in expecting something that was nothing like my childhood memories, and I was not disappointed.

    I also saw TMNT and when I got home I watched the 1990 movie. It is infinitely better. Also the turtles don't look like ugly deformed crack babies like they do in Bay-Splosion's version.

    That was my biggest take away from the trailers - that these turtles just didn't seem all that likable.

    In my opinion, she's no more than a pretty face who's become type-cast for those kind of movies.
    Do the turtles still have Brooklyn accents?

    No, they sound more like the new TV series.

    I went and saw Lucy, because it was the only halfway decent thing in theaters besides GotG.

    ...Nah.

    Watched Justice League: War the other day. Not bad. Had some pretty good moments in it.

    Just watched Guardians of the Galaxy.
    4.5/5

    Very Fun and for all ages. Went in not knowing the original comic and plot, and left being extremely entertained by the CGI and the storyline. I just wanted to see more of the main villain and the power he wielded. The old lady fell asleep, and i dont know what to say to that...

    How much did Vin Deisel make to be Groot?

    Hollywood is probably just giving money away now.

    Just watched Assault on Arkham. I like that they used some lesser known villains for the team.
