  1. Of the movies you mentioned, I saw Ghost in the Shell and The Lego Ninjago Movie. I thought I just liked Ghost in the Shell because it was visually stunning and I have no knowledge of the anime franchise. I liked The Lego Ninjago Movie as well. The 3D was good. I laughed a lot. I also liked the action scenes but yeah, it’s the weakest of the Lego franchise.

    • GitS is average at best. Most hate it get because it is adaptation of really good anima and manga. Even if I’m not a fanboy of movies which are generally weakest parts of the series, LA version is still weaker. Worst crime of that movie is that it turn two great story arcs in one cliched. Puppet Master who was a sentient AI searching point for his existence was turn in generic hacker, and twist from Arise where it was revealed that Kusanagi was a ex-leader of terrorist as part for her work for intelligence, was turn in cliched girlfriend of rebel was brainwashed by evil-corp bullshit. But again, it is only average movie. Huge hunk of criticism regard it is a bullshit, especially accusation of white-washing when not only she IS Japanese in the movie, but the thing is that she wasn’t in original. Anyway whole thing was idiotic.

  2. About Aline: Convent hate.. people also do hate Prometheus, and generally people did like Convent more then Prometheus. But still most hate regard this movie was because it was basically Prometheus 2 (maybe some hatred was related to fact that in opposition to Prometheus, Convent sell itself as Alien movie?).

    Chris opinion is clearly minor here, not that it is a problem of any kind.

  3. The US American audiences are too freaking unrealistically, tolerant these days in this century.

  4. Often brainlessly, crazily tolerant of everything, not just movies, I don’t believe it’s in human nature to be so tolerant, like a generational population of artificial hippies. To be prejudiced is also to be human like most living things, now everybody’s scared of even being mildly racist or have good logical taste in the cinematic arts.

  5. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has freaking mammoths and mastodons, prehistoric, “prehistoric” giant elephants with medieval soldiers using them in around 5th or 6th century Britannia.

  6. I haven’t seen that movie, but I didn’t have to, the trailer spoiled enough as it is Chris.
