Is Rotten Tomatoes still trust worthy?
Critics are trying way too hard to have an "intellectual" input by nitpicking.

Audience rating is all that matters tbh.

tbh I don't care about ratings anymore, be it from audience or critics.
Ever since Shawshank Redemption was ranked nr. 1 on IMDb I stopped caring.

So I just learned that Suicide Squad will be in the same universe as Batman V. Superman.
And I am not very pleased by this.
Why?
Because we learn that Batman is willing to kill criminals and everyone he deems a threat towards the innocent humans... SO WHY THE HELL IS THE JOKER STILL ALIVE?!

From the looks of it, the Joker scenes in Suicide Squad take place in the past during an earlier time in Batman's career. At the time of Batman v Superman, he's probably already killed Joker.

To be fair, maybe the whole "killing criminals" thing came into fruition after Bats came out of retirement....but it still doesn't make any sense, because the first thing he would immediately do is go after Joker.

**machiavellianhumor used "*roll 1, 10-99*"**
**machiavellianhumor rolls 66**

I got done watching batman v superman. I'm not angry at it like i thought i would be. Just disappointed in it. It basically confirms what i believed about man of steel. Zach Miller wanted to make a Batman movie and got stuck making a Superman movie. Like the biggest reason i didn't like it is that AGAIN nobody understands what's special about Superman. It's basically superhero by numbers when they write superman. He's gotta save people, gotta have laser eyes, has to stare a lot while his cape flows. Nobody cares to delve into the complexity of superman and again people will come out thinking this is all superman is. And the thing about wonder woman i had issue with is her big moment kind of interrupts the bonding moment that should of been for Clark and Bruce. She felt more like a distraction than a needed add on. If you need to understand my thoughts on Wonder Woman think of a NBA player on a bad team. A player that goes out and averages 20 points 10 rebounds a game and everyone gives them praise, but the team is losing cause while individually they are looking good it actually hurts the overalll team because they are taking bad shots or not passing when they should. I also feel like they made the Batman superman fight purposely terrible for some reason and idky they didn't make it better. just felt forced and weird

i liked a few things i enjoyed clark using his superhearing to find about bruce cause he heard alfred through the earpiece,
i liked how they had the Martha and Martha connection though it was executed poorly. Mostly cause I can't believe i never noticed that myself they both had Martha moms so i felt stupid for that.
I enjoyed a few of lex's quotes like "mans fear is having knowledge without power" even though still not totally sold on jesse eisenberg he had some really good lines
the Aquaman cameo i thought was actually a underrated scene. It seemed so cool how he was just another fish lurking in the coral and he's confused by the humans appearing.


also check out my dubs

overall i see why it got such bad reviews. IT was a movie with a lot of potential to be a 10 and instead it's a 6.5/7 out of 10 with too many scenes that were boring and a weak writing for Superman

ELECTRA WOMAN  DYNA GIRL OFFICIAL TRAILER  Grace Helbig
I could not wait until Sunday to share this with you people. Why do we have this? It's got cliches and bad jokes and probably average to poor acting. Fans of Helbig and Hart will probably enjoy it but that's about it.

I don't get it. Do they have actual superpowers? Looks kinda like a cornier version of Kickass, and I didn't even like Kickass that much

have you guys noticed how much more eerie and, for lack of a better word, scary the silent films are compared to modern ones?

eerie yes. scary no. it's all about the overacting with silent movies. but they don't rely on jump scares and had to focus on really tension building cause you couldn't rely on a loud noise to scare you

I find silent horror films to be too slow. The atmosphere is there, but the pacing is just way out of proportion. I think plenty of modern horror films are excellent, you just have to look.

The Simpsons, for Seasons 2-15. Newer episodes are nowhere near as good, but I still watch, and some of them aren't too bad.

nah they killed some guy everyone thought would be the joker, but then they hinted at the end of that episode that the joke is inspired by this guy (was a rather puplic ordeal) and shows loads of "potential" jokers.

A Horrible Way to Die is the first film from the team of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett (they've also worked together on You're Next, The Guest, and the first two V/H/S films, where they were responsible for the segments Tape 56 and Phase I Clinical Trials). The film features AJ Bowen, Amy Seimetz, and Joe Swanberg, who have all worked together in other movies in varying combinations (and sometimes with Wingard and Barrett as well). I'm a fan of all these people, so the only thing I knew going into this movie was that I liked the people involved. I was curious to see what some of their earlier work looked like.

It's not bad. It has its problems, but it's not bad. Let's talk about the good stuff first. All of the performances are pretty good. The acting is very naturalistic, so it's almost like watching non-actors work. The story is interesting enough, and held my attention all the way through. There's a cool twist at the end, which makes up for an easily predictable twist that happens maybe five minutes earlier. The film is low budget, and it shows, but not always in a bad way. These guys put a certain quality into their work, and it really benefits the film. This could've been a horribly bland and predictable movie, but thanks to the people involved, it's not. The last twenty minutes or so aren't the most tense moments in filmmaking history, but it does elevate the tension in the movie from relatively low to a decent amount.

One of my problems with the film is the way the passage of time is conveyed. There's some cutting back and forth between different points on the timeline, and it's not always clear when the scene you're watching is taking place. It never took me more than maybe ten seconds to figure it out, but it's a little disorienting. A major element of the music are horn instruments. I don't think they work well for this movie. They just don't match the atmosphere. The movie isn't very tense until the last twenty minutes. It's a slow burn movie, which I enjoy, and especially appreciate with horror, but nothing really disturbing or unsettling or scary happens (with filmmaking, you can't make the whole "oh well if it was real you'd be scared" argument because we know as an audience it's not real and can't hold fictional horror to the same bar as real life horror). Even the last twenty minutes aren't all that bad to sit through. I was never on the edge of my seat.

The easily predictable twist that I mentioned was that Joe Swanberg's character is actually one of the bad guys, even though he seems like a good guy early on. My prediction was that his partner was AJ Bowen, and they'll kill Amy Seimetz together
The interesting twist is that Swanberg is actually working with two other people, and they idolize AJ Bowen's character as "the greatest killer of their generation." However, Bowen has no desire to kill Seimetz. Seimetz and Bowen used to be dating when Seimetz discovered Bowen was a serial killer, resulting in Bowen's incarceration. The trio worked to get Bowen out of jail, and they kidnap Seimetz so Bowen can get his revenge. However, Bowen entered the relationship with Seimetz under the notion that she thought he would be a good partner, and he respects and understands why she did what she did. He even helps free her in the end. I enjoyed this twist because it kept the movie fresh, even when I had correctly guessed a significant portion of the climax.

While A Horrible Way to Die is by no means a masterpiece, or even that great of a movie, it's a solid film that is respectable in Wingard's and Barrett's filmography. In watching their later work, you can definitely see where they came from in this movie. I'm happy to say that they've definitely improved over the years, and I look forward to seeing their work in the future.
