Pete Docter is one of the best directors of animated features working today. That might sound like hubris, but it isn’t. Each of his films is adorable, approachable, and visually stunning enough to warrant the praise, but each also has a core of love and acceptance that makes them universal. The marriage montage in Up! or the simple truth that sadness plays a key roll in our lives from Inside Out, Docter makes movies that tell truths.
Remember that film that came out in 2011 about three schmucks who try to kill their bosses? It made all the money so here comes a sequel. Good news though: the cast is still amazing. Bad news though: it still looks like a retread.
I’ll give you a full review after the jump but let me take a moment right now to just give it to you straight: this movie is fucking awful and you shouldn’t see it. In fact I think it might be best if as few people as possible see it because if it doesn’t live up to Sony’s expectations then maybe we’ll be spared more of this crap.
The following review will contain some minor spoilers but you shouldn’t see this movie so it doesn’t matter.
Alright folks it’s finally here: A trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This is where I’d normally just sigh and say let’s watch but this time around I have to point out that you should maybe not watch this because while it doesn’t really have much in the way of plot details I (and half the internet it seems) are pretty sure that it spoils the end credits scene of the movie (yeah, wtf is that) and at the very least some set up for the already green lit Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4. Ugh.
Naturally, since these things come in twos, White House Down features a paramilitary group attacking the white house. Is it better than it’s predecessor? Yes, absolutely. Is it good? Weeelllllllllll…….
We just got finished with Olympus Has Fallen and we’ve already got trailers for the next “Die Hard in the White House” movie coming out this year, White House Down. At least this one, so far, looks good. The Trailers for Olympus Has Fallen never looked this good. Watch it now:
