Movie Thoughts 5-30-2012

After Earth is not getting good early reviews.  It is not getting a lot of early reviews either.  There are 16 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes as I type this and 15 are negative.   I might check tomorrow to see if more reviews came in and if there are more positive reviews.  After reading some of the reviews, I am a bit unsure how the movie really got made.  Okay, it got made because Will Smith is still a star and Men In Black III sold a lot of tickets.

Leprechaun is coming back.  Why?  Has any movie in that franchise been good or even decent?   Oh well,  maybe the seventh time will be the charm.  (Okay, maybe not. )

Can DC comics match what Marvel comics has done in movies?  Should they even try?    I am not sure.  On one hand, I enjoy the Marvel movies but maybe DC just needs to concentrate on making the best films possible.  Maybe the continuity is not necessary.  Or maybe it is more of a bonus.

If the new Man of Steel movie is good, isn’t that enough?   It has been a long time since there was a  really good Superman movie.  It would be nice to have a really Superman movie.

There are plans for a Timecop reboot.  Well, maybe that could be okay.   It’s been years since I’ve seen Timecop but I remember it was fairly good.
