Summer Movies...what are you gonna see?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

The action scenes were just overdone and excessive, like the Transformers movies. (or like the Family Guy Peter vs Chicken fight scenes). Add in the fact that Metropolis was being destroyed and everyone just hung out to watch. But then that allowed Lois Lane to be close to Superman no matter what he did. The action g was mostly network tv grade.

It could have been great, I thought the storyline was really well done, but somewhere along the line, it was just bending under the excess.

Transformers has horrible sound and CGI, not to mention a shitty storyline, they need to ditch Michael Bay and just start fresh.

As for man of steal, that seems too f̶a̶g̶g̶y̶ crappy now to watch. :look:

Saw The Croods with the kids at one of those open air theatres in South Surrey.

It was great for the kids and they actually stayed awake for the whole show.

Not a bad kid flick either, it had it's moments!

I really liked the first one. Original and funny ... looks like #2 is much the same just with more appearances. I would pay to watch it.

I just saw The Wolverine last night. I think it was great! The pace was strange ... either too fast or too slow at times but (insert poster's reply about how that particular director makes films that way. Referencing other films, that was probably copied and pasted from indie review site.).

Story line was cool, hot chicks,and a major post-credit teaser!

Anybody seen Sharknado yet? Not as good as MegaShark, but pretty good nonetheless.

Saw Sharknado few weeks ago when it came out. A classic. We try to catch most of the syfy originals.
