    Anyone of you has seen Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam, Supermen Donuyor or Supersonic Man? These three also deserve a place.

    The uncanny valley CGI did not bother me either. Pity the sequel got turned down.
    It earned $400 million at the box office, which is not what I'd call a failure. The original only netted $33 million and was a cult classic.

    Like the original, Legacy was an audio visual experience with a very limited story line. It's a bring out your popcorn and turn off your mind kind of experience, and I sometimes like those kind of movies.

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    This is not a bad movie. This is one of the best movies ever made.

    Honestly, the CGI and the redudant plot made the movie a flop for me, and I loved the original Tron. I've probably seen the original a dozen times. They tried to add depth, but the fact that the games and the light cycle sequences and pacing of the movie with Flynns son was basically the same as wjth Flynn in the original just made the movie too forgettable. The CGI graphics also are nowhere near as disctinctive as the original. The soundtrack by Daft Punk was excellent though, and Jeff Flynns young face in CGI waa creepy, but cool technology. It also probably had one of the most fun, hyped ARGs that I've seen for popular media. The different websites, posters, drop off points, and other things were really cool.

    I agree with those points. I really wanted to like the movie. The soundtrack was excellent. But ultimately it missed that truly surreal quality that made the first one so good.

    It was just a neon reality, whereas the first seemed so much more alien and interesting... even if it was comparatively much more primitive.

    A plenty! And not in the "So bad it's good" way either. Guess I got a terrible taste in movies

    Let's see... The Star Wars prequels trilogy (with a tidbit: only in Russian dub where the acting isn't insufferable), The Mummy (1999), Van Helsing (2003), The Shadow (1994) (I genuinely have no idea why was this movie panned, it was a great superhero flick), Ghost Rider (only the first one though)... hell, might even throw in Spider-Man 3 for good measure.

    Great thread!

    I have one:

    Blackhat (2015)

    Blackhat-2015.jpg

    33% on Rotten Tomatoes and tanked at the box office, losing about $50 million. But I really enjoyed this one. Even if Chris Hemsworth was miscast, the interesting setting and subject is enough for me to recommend as a popcorn thriller.

    I couldn’t have been the only one to have caught that.

    Seen this movie and, meh. I mean, it started out good and all (love thrillers with smart protagonists), but it just didn't keep the momentum strong enough till the end for me.

Not so much, not bad, but quite mediocre and my little bro was a fan, so we rented it more times than any other game except for Sonic 3), most of the movies from Lloyd Kaufman's Troma... My last discovery has been Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs.
    Wait, there are people who exist who don't like Flash Gordon and Troma films?

    I'm sure they wanted to spend their time and money on only their top-most priority: MAKING THE BEST MOVIES THIS PLANET HAS EVER SEEN.

    I seem to remember May getting some pretty bad reviews, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. People were calling it a Frankenstein ripoff, but I didn't see that at all as it had completely different approach and metal aspect, which was appealing to me.

    The movie was great. I loved the Soundtrack for it overall.

    Batman & Robin (1997).
    While this film has it's flaws (many of them), I still enjoy watching it. I think I can see the direction Joel Schumacher was heading for (another campy Batman film, anyone?), and while it didn't hit the mark, it was pretty close. There's also a few solid parts of the film that I really like, such as Poison Ivy in general (Uma Thurman did a great job with the character, I reckon), Mr Freeze's motivation/story arc (although it's difficult to see behind the chilling abundance of ice-cold freeze puns) and the Arkham Asylum scenes look stylish and work rather well (although, they also have their problems, but hey, what can you do?).

    Cutthroat Island
    I watched the movie and really enjoyed it.
    From wikipedia: "The abject disaster of Cutthroat Island is also credited with significantly reducing the bankability and Hollywood production of pirate-themed films, which recovered only with the production of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003"

    I found out that my PAL VHS copy of 1992's Steel Justice actually does work, but without a PAL VCR, I can't play it in proper timing; everything comes up black and white and with sped up sound. But I know it's because it's PAL and that means it works! This movie is nearly impossible to find in any format and this PAL VHS may be one of the few physical releases in existence. Very limited. I haven't been able to watch the film myself, but I would be willing to sell the tape. It's about a cop whose dead son is reborn into the infamous Robosaurus!

    I actually really liked Tron Legacy. I thought it had a lot more plot and depth than the first one. I thought the first one was a visual powerhouse but not much more so for me that got old after only a few viewings.

    I also have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I thought the plot was great and the movie compelled me to the end.
