    Big Black Asses 3. Not the gender I was expecting.
    Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as ‘mentally ill’

    All of the Star Wars movies, and more recently all of the Superhero movies that have been coming out. I'm not really a fan of either genre in general, but I honestly don't understand how people can go so crazy over them. Even I never treated my favorite movie like some sort of cult.

    Dislike the Star wars saga as well. It is about computer graphics and not about acting and plot

    And yet it is defended so fanatically whenever someone harshes on it.

    On the hand, I enjoyed Charlie's Angels. Maybe I just don't like Brie Larson.
    Jack: How do you know?

    Will: It's more of a feeling really.

    Jack: Well, that's not scientific. Feeling isn't knowing. Feeling is believing. If you believe it, you can't know because there's no knowing what you believe. Then again, no one should believe what they know either. Once you know anything that anything becomes unbelievable if only by virtue of the fact you now... know it. You know?

    Will: No.

    If Demolition Man were remade today

    Huxley: What's wrong? You broke contact.
    Spartan: Contact? I didn't even touch you.
    Huxley: Don't you want to make love?
    Spartan: Is that what you call this? Why don't we just do it the old-fashioned way?
    Huxley: NO!
    Spartan: Whoa! Okay, calm down.
    Huxley: Don't tell me to calm down!
    Spartan: What's gotten into you? 'Cause it sure as hell wasn't me.
    Huxley: Physical relations in the way of intercourse are no longer acceptable John Spartan.
    Spartan: What? Why the hell not?
    Huxley: It's the law, John. And for your information, the very idea that you suggested it makes me feel personally violated.
    Spartan: Wait a minute... violated? Huxley what the hell are you accusing me of here?
    Huxley: You need to leave, John.
    Spartan: But Huxley.
    Huxley: Get out!
    Moments later Spartan is arrested for "violating" Huxley.

    By the way, that's called satire. Get over it.

    The production value for most superhero films from the release of Iron Man and onward (at least insomuch as Marvel goes) is at its highest point and seems to be steadily climbing. What's more, there is so much lore to draw on that the stories just continue seemingly without end. Therefore, it's unlikely Hollywood will stop. There's even rumor of a sequel to Hancock. I also continue to hold out hope for sequels to Sleight and Chronicle (and please tell us Michael B. Jordan's character magically survived because reasons).

    If I'd said Revolutions, it wouldn't have fit the thread. And I also never saw it, because the first one was terrible.

    Well everyone hated the second and third ones and they loved the first one, so maybe you'd like those ones. But it really depends on WHY you hated the first one.
