I’m sort of intrigued by Kingsmen, especially since SLJ is the villain.

The inclusion of former action star Jason Statham makes me kinda want to see FF7, though all the FF movies past Tokyo Drift have been forgettable IMO so I dunno.

A while back there was some controversy about the CG in the Jurassic World trailer. I’m surprised they didn’t fix it for this superbowl ad. Maybe I need to rewatch the original movie but I remember the dinosaurs looking more realistic in that.

Finally saw Kingsman. I enjoyed it, it had a better balance between being satirical and “playing it straight”, between getting its point across and being entertaining, than most. It didn’t walk that razor’s edge as well as Captain America: The Winter Soldier but it was a lot closer to that than to the opposite end of the spectrum: Yuri Bears :wink:

I wish it hadn’t had Wolf of Wall Street level profanity usage as that makes the movie difficult to recommend. I’d like to think that it was used to satire the overuse of profanity in other movies but still.

I didn’t realize just how blatant the controversial content in the movie really was; I bet it made some heads explode. :smiley:

Why are they blowing their money on overrated actors? The original was successful without 'em. What is a movie about British spies going to do with so many new American actors?

Jeff Bridges is going to be a bust as he is less intelligible than Sly Stallone; he’s a mumbler. His lines in movies need subtitles.

“A man’s got to know his limitations”

After seeing the Craig era, maybe Clive Owen should’ve been picked.
