@mcleve02,

Haha, yep, just wait for my next review... Silent Hill Revelation shall be hated most definitely. And that's weird that the tag didn't work... Guess we'll just see what happens next time I do it.

@slysnide,

Yeah, I actually saw it again and Javier really does remain one of the strongest links in the chain. The second viewing for me was personally a bit weaker; I didn't enjoy it as much; but Javier's scenes remained standouts.

@thedude-abides,

Yeah, I'd definitely dig hearing your thoughts once you see it as I felt as though i was in the definite minority while at the screening. It felt too bloated and typical to me; displayed nothing people weren't already told in elementary school... Though it does go to great lengths to make him seem far simpler a man than what some more controversial doc*mentation records.

@skywise,

Thanks, man! And yeah, my girlfriend is obsessed with Daniel Day-Lewis and made sure of informing me that he ONLY takes roles that he wants to. It's kind of testament to how good he is/how much filmmakers want him. As for the battle scenes, sadly, those only take up MAYBE five three minutes of the entire story. While the first display of warfare is realistic and gritty, it's extremely brief. The next few that follow are like literally just images (like a few buildings on fire).

@corey,

Thanks, man! And yeah, his performance is the only worthwhile thing... But I'm not sure if you'd like to watch him in a drab movie for nearly three hours...

@the-movieghost,

Yeah, I'd definitely recommend SKYFALL over this one; I honestly don't think you'll be missing much if you don't bother with LINCOLN.

As for the capitalization of the titles; when I do script coverage and analysis work, a lot of the time (or depending on who's contracting), when writing an analysis/coverage, one capitalizes the character name the first time they appear or the film's title/other film titles. I just happen to maintain that during my reviews as well (outside of character names that is).

Bryan Yentz reviewed the movie Lincoln

"... There is an incredibly talented cast... yet rarely did I find myself ingrained with anything they were saying as a majority of scenes came off as over-exaggerating stage performers reciting instruction manuals on legislature by way of Shakespeare..."

@slysnide,

Thanks, man! And yeah, while I felt CASINO to be the most realistic of the bunch as it was far more dramatic than action-oriented, I felt this version the most grounded in terms of relationships and character building. As for Q, he was decent enough in this version yet he's not that pivotal (maybe ten minutes of screen time? If that?), unlike Cleese, however, his humor is more subtle and witty and fits in better to the film's overall tone. So, yes, while I was indifferent about the character in SKYFALL, I still think the alteration in actor and portrayal to be far more suiting. And if you've been a fan that long, I think you'll definitely dig this one. When I told my buddy (who loves the Bond flicks) that I actually didn't hate it, he just told me, "If you actually found it decent, then that means I'll love it."

@mcleve02,

Oh, you'll just have to see... It's going to be an Oscar contender, that's for sure.

@crypt,

Yeah, that's what I had heard; like the female protagonist is Leatherface's cousin or something? But yeah, I feel as though the 3D element is tacked on and takes the focus away from being a gritty, scary flick into that of a one-trick pony in regards to "What crazy thing is gonna fly at the screen next!?"

@john-m,

I agree with you, actually, on the note that they should have left the endings alone and not bothered to redo them. For me, the ending was appalling on its own (including the slight variations of each), but for them to try and redo the ending with another was like adding insult to injury. The first was bad enough and they should have simply backed off, but the "revised" ending was almost worse. I didn't want a clear-cut happy ending, I didn't want a depressing ending, I wanted an ending that occurred because of the choices I made. ME: 2 is one of the greatest sequels ever made and for me, the series ended with that one as it perfectly ended on a conclusive--yet open note. It was fantastic. 3, however, broke all of the logic, mythology, choices I had made, continuity, and instead tossed everything into a Hollywood-esque blender. Beyond that, ME: 3 was just an incomplete game. Story-integral characters you had to pay for? Story-integral gameplay you had to pay extra for? Glitchy gameplay (falling through the levels, for one), consistent graphical pop-in and out... The ending was just the final punch to the gut Bioware delivered. The reason ME can even be considered movie-material is because the fans loved and supported it from the get-go only to be slapped in the face by Bioware and EA with a conclusion that pandered to everyone else, but them (a Jersey Shore/Mass Effect: 3 ad?). Bioware lost sight of what they were doing and I feel were also pushed by EA into doing sh*t work. I've lost respect for Bioware as well, for the product they made and how they handled it. I honestly don't know how Bioware can redeem themselves at this point.

@enborn,

Aside from the ending, the gameplay felt clunkier, the graphics had FAR more pop-in and out material and everything was FAR glitchier than the previous two (falling through the landscapes for one). While, yes, the ending is only ten minutes of content; it COMPLETELY undermines everything one learned and played through before it. For me, if the conclusion to the story is so poorly implemented, executed and simply thought out, it utterly tarnishes my entire experience. What was all of that work for? What was my reward? The payoff? Sure, I had fun playing, but knowing it was all for naught, with a slapdash climax and denouement that compromises continuity, logic, mythology and--most of all--my choices ruins the experience. I just finished SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR and I felt the same way. Glitchy gameplay, graphics which were constantly loading, constant lag... And while I could see beyond all of that, I kept hoping it would all be redeemed by the conclusion... Which ultimately made me furious at the game as--like ME: 3, broke logic, left plot threads hanging and left nearly all questions unanswered. For me, the Mass Effect series closed out after the exceptional ME: 2.

I like the first one the most.
