Sounds like the trailer for Battleship was an extremely accurate representation of the film then.
He did just see the trailer, he actually went to see Mirror Mirror, but he didn't want to admit it.
Yes, but did anyone say, "YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!"? Been waiting for confirmation on this incredibly important piece of information since that film was announced.
A Dangerous Method - 7/10 - Great performances, though a strangely theatrical movie that feels like it'd be better off as a play.
The Avengers - 7/10 While I enjoyed the film overall I did expect more.It had the best version of the Hulk so far, mostly well timed comedy (although a couple of bits did cross the line and belittled the story) and some spectacular action sequences.Sadly there was absolutely no emotional depth from any of the key cast. There is only one non-action scene, with Scarlett and Hiddleston, which seems highly charged and rather gripping - this was quite a revelation as she is normally pretty average. I found the general lack of soul disappointing as it is something both Thor and Captain America were able to achieve despite being silly/camp films. It was all the more surprising considering the Whedon back catalogue. Still, I doubt 99.9% of people watching the film will care much about this and it is my most significant criticism.Lastly, at no point was there any sense of peril which made for a fairly mundane climax.Just for comparison here is how I rate the films leading up to The Avengers.
Act of Valor 9.5/10 This was by far my favorite overall movie of recent years, taking a step away from the "Hollywood-ized" war movies, and dropping you right in their shoes. It's one of the only ones I've seen with the first person view being a big part of the action. The script was fantastic and it had more than it's fair share of edge of your seat moments, most importantly none of the weaponry was screwed over which you can see in about every movie depicting war, or guns in and of themselves.
...some stuff... (no need to quote all of it, really, was there?
