"Diehard fans will embrace this film, I'm finally done with the CGI battles and melodrama of Middle Earth."
Julian Roman reviewed the movie The Imitation Game

"The story of Alan Turing, and his immeasurable contribution to modern society, is superbly adapted for the screen in The Imitation Game."

How goes it dude? Sure, send a few links and I'll forward. But believe me when I tell you that Brian G does a TON of work on a daily basis putting together the news updates. And making sure everything is linked is very difficult, so definitely try to cut some slack if a few bugs pop up:) Party on dude.

What's up dude? We'll see, so far the suits at marvel have done a good job taking what works and adapting it well, except for the mandarin in iron man 3. It looks like they're bringing back the same team for cap 3, so I have a lot of faith. They've absolutely hit it out of the park this year. Cap, guardians, and DOFP have been great films. And you have to respect how well DOFP was done in respect to the original comic. The bar is set high!

"Mockingjay Part 1 is a hideously boring, bleak film. They've taken thirty minutes of plot, then stretched it out like taffy into an insufferable two hours."

** SPOILER ALERT **

What's up dude? Yes, this was the chief buzzkiller of this film. So...drum roll please...remember the "ghost" behind the bookcase from when she was a kid...that was really Cooper, after he ejected into the event horizon of the black hole...and was saved by the "future humans who can transcend space time"...but don't have the "love" between two people to make specific communication...hence using the "love bond" that exists through space time...Cooper asks TARS to use the gravity anomaly...to send her the equation that controls gravity...by manipulating the hand on that watch he left her...to deliver the message via morse code...which allows humanity to leave earth and grow corn in space. Lol, an absolutely ludicrous third act. Party on.
@bsona

We're definitely on the same page dude. I find it hilarious how some people get so defensive about Nolan and this film. Dude's a great director, but you have to call a film out for what it really is. Hope all is well.
@Pablo91190

How goes it dude? I have very high expectations. Joss Whedon has proven himself, and marvel studios keep cranking out these great comic book films. Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite films of the year, and one of their best. I'll keep having faith until they take a drastic step back.
@Play-Itout

How goes it dude? Love this line lol, "likely his way of camouflaging his befuddlement surrounding this movie". No befuddlement here lol, characters drawing pics of wormholes - same scene from Event Horizon if you saw that film, explaining to each other what a circle looks like in 3 dimensions, multiple instances off this. The gravity manipulation ghost plot thread was totally ludicrous to me. In fact, from the beginning of these scenes I shuddered with realization where this was going, insert Contact here. Don't get caught up on the word "stumble" in my review, it's plain as day they're led to the facility...within driving distance lol. Anyway, my two cents, glad you liked it though. Check out Nightcrawler & Whiplash, Imitation Game & Foxcatcher are also two other amazing films coming out in a few weeks. Party on dude.
Julian Roman reviewed the movie Interstellar

"Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is desperately reaching for Stanley Kubrick 2001 greatness and achieving Robert Zemeckis mediocrity in Contact. It's no small bit of irony that both films star Matthew McConaughey."
Julian Roman reviewed the movie Nightcrawler

"Nightcrawler is a thrilling, dark journey into the mind of a sociopath and the cutthroat nature of success at all costs. It taps into that lurid vein of morbid fascination."
Julian Roman reviewed the movie Whiplash

"Whiplash is a must see and will contend for the best film of 2014. Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons deliver magnetic performances."
Julian Roman reviewed the movie Gone Girl

"Gone Girl is a devilish mystery and star-making performance for Rosamund Pike."
@undeadslayer4

How goes it dude? I never read the books so really can't compare. I'd guessed that people who read the books would like the film, but maybe it is so different they won't. That said, I think the film stands pretty good on its own. It's hard to adapt a book exactly to film, but i agree it can be a letdown when the film is different.

Julian Roman reviewed the movie The Equalizer

"The Equalizer is a serious action film led by Hollywood's best leading actor. Director Antoine Fuqua spends a significant amount of screen time delving into the psyche and character of a truly admirable protagonist."
@Steve-Armstrong

That wasn't an issue for me. Maybe the maze shutdown once the other kids got through, maybe they killed that bug and took another beacon, maybe aliens teleported Gally lol. Willing suspension of disbelief dude. Hope all is well.

"A Walk Among the Tombstones is a bit too methodical in the delivery, but is mysterious enough to hold your attention throughout."
Julian Roman reviewed the movie The Maze Runner

"The Maze Runner is a superior entry in Hollywood's onslaught of adolescents versus future dystopia films. It's interesting, well acted, well directed, and delivers a highly original outcome."

"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a known commodity that is pretty much on par with the original. At the very least, seeing the smoldering Eva Greene melt the screen is worth the price of admission."
