The first few times I saw the trailer for Battle LA on the TV I thought it was the sequel to District 9. Evidence that it's completely derived by producers who saw the success of the film and thought they could do the same thing.I watched Battle LA this last weekend. I did not like it. It was too slow and putting me to sleep. I kept on thinking how much I liked Independence Day more. The battle LA was like a war movie but with small glimpses of alien ships and fighters but they flashed by so fast you could hardly see them and the show did not have much for characters or depth it was just an action film that was pretty much the same the whole time. At least that is what I got from watching it the first time around and having troubles keeping my attention to it. I actually thought about leaving the theater and trying to get a different movie ticket to another film.
I just finished Heros season 3 today. I liked it but I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 more. I thought season 3 was not quite as good and was more of a downer as far as emotion for me. The first two seasons were more fun for me. Still it was a great show too bad they cancelled it at season 4. Now I have to get season 4 to see the rest.
The Illusionist is a great movie. So is the The Prestige. I think I liked the Illusionist more.
I enjoyed the illusionist, though it was....well because you're halfway through it I edited what I said to get rid of any spoilers.My girlfriend and I are halfway through 'The Illusionist' and loving it.
And before that, 'The Host'.
Loved it. The cinematography, the special effects, the acting, everything. (We watched in Korean with subtitles, don't care for English dubbing.) Also had a good laugh at the portrayal of Americans as deranged psychopaths who jump at any chance to test their military experiments on unsuspecting countries.
Full marks I think, it completely surpasses the general standard of films in this genre from this side of the world, with just a fraction of the budget too. Really imaginative.
