    @OpenSorce: The bullet was the thing that made Xavier crippled in X-Men: First Class. @Justin555666: You are absolutely correct about this learning, but I wan't to let you know, that this movie isn't tied to the others.

    Magneto removed the bullet. =x without blood too! Cuz X is too good to bleed.

    I don't know, I personally don't consider Origins: Wolverine canon in my book.
  • 11th July 2011 by AKenjiB
    I thought that this was a reboot, not just a straight out prequel
  • 4th July 2011 by OpenSorce
    We don't know that the paralysis from the bullet is permanent. He could have lost his ability to walk later due to complications (like having the bullet removed years later). Also, Xavier often projected his image in the minds of others. He was usually walking upright in these projections.

    thats exactly what i kept saying
Incredibles, The
Masks will stick to your face with nothing to keep them there, and they'll never fall off even when you're doing complicated super hero moves.

    never understood that either
Spider-Man 2
If you're a superhero and unmask yourself before a train of civilians, don't worry. They won't tell anybody they saw your face. Not a soul.

    I have a feeling few people knew who he is, but he's going to get a lot of people afterwards going "Hey, it's you! You're the guy that saved the el-train full of people I was in!" And he'd be like "Shut up shut up shut up!"
  • 25th March 2011 by AKenjiB
    exactly what I thought. same thing happened with the....Hannah Montana movie. WTF?
Sanctum
Having every character die off one-by-one based on their importance has never been done and is not predicable at all. (cough)

    Exactly my thoughts. god this movie was annoying.
Cloverfield
Somehow a giant monster running around New York decapitating the Statue of Liberty is not unrealistic in the slightest, but the fact that the damn camera battery lasted so freaking long really gets to people.

    That's so true. People bitch over things so small that they don't even notice the big things.

Johnny Cage's director looks like Steven Spielberg.

    Hit the wrong movie link. Sorry!

    This sounds like a scene in Michael Bay's Black Swan...

    Are you sure that you're talking about Black Swan?

    as someone with an actual stutter, I'll go on record saying that that actually works, believe it or not. There have been times when I've been stuck on a word and then repeatedly said shit in frustration and i didn't stutter when saying shit.

Old white guys are racist enough to stop speaking with their kids because they married outside their race, but still open-minded enough to have close black friends and use phrases like "cramps my style."

It's OK to set free a criminal just because he tells you that "he ain't going back to prison".

    I highly doubt the film makers were thinking "lets portray this kid as a metro-sexual" even though they didn't specify if the kid was gay or not they sure made it seem that way - his likes and dislikes, way of speaking and moving, fondness of sewing, etc. Who really cares, this site is supposed to be a funny site where we poke fun at movies and that is what I'm doing!
  • 27th November 2010 by SWCjunkie1234
    who was the gay kid
  • 24th November 2010 by ryan corderman
    LOL dude it was a joke. I don't care what the hell the kid is or isn't.
  • 23rd November 2010 by AKenjiB
    Have you guys ever heard of the term Metrosexual? Just because someone is flamboyant doesn't make them gay
  • 23rd November 2010 by ryan corderman
    Did it really have to?
  • 23rd November 2010 by AKenjiB
    The movie never said that he was gay

    I think it's split between teachers.
  • 10th November 2010 by AKenjiB
    That's not true. I had to watch it at my school to learn about the film's philosophy.
  • 18th February 2010 by Anon
    Yeah I've read those books, and you would THINK they would love it, but they really don't. They say it's just entertainment, and the only reason they added those references was to make a movie. I put this up to warn potential victims of philosophy teachers hehe. I for one really loved the philosophy in this movie and was actually very obsessed with this movie for a long time. I'm still kinda, sorta, obsessed with it...
  • 21st December 2009 by Anon
    Actually there are books that talk about how the directors added religious references on purpose. So in theory a Philosophy teacher should love it.... Neo is soooo totally Jesus.

    Seriously. O_O

Dodging bullets in slow motion is the ONLY way to dodge bullets.

  • 10th November 2010 by AKenjiB
    Well right before Neo dodged bullets, he was shooting at the agent. The agent also dodged the bullets and it wasn't in slow motion
War of the Worlds (2005)
Your son runs towards giant things killing the Army soldiers en masse with heat rays and lasers? 1. Don't do anything serious to try to stop him. 2. Don't worry, he'll be fine for no apparent or adequately explored or explained reason.

  • 6th November 2010 by AKenjiB
    Well he did try to stop him
  • 1st March 2010 by agentdc7
    That was one thing that ruined the ending for me. I was pretty sure he was dead.

    That actually really surprised me. I didn't expect him to lose a leg. I mean it's a kids movie. I was just thinking "Woah."

    OH! OK that makes sense. Thanks for correcting me.
  • 31st October 2010 by AKenjiB
    The book was inspired and loosely based on the women that Sapphire met while working as a literacy teacher, but it is not based on one specific true story or one person.
  • 30th October 2010 by ryan corderman
    I read interviews with the writer Sapphire were she claimed this was a true story.
  • 30th October 2010 by AKenjiB
    Um, it's not a true story. No one ever said it was
Law Abiding Citizen
No matter how right the character might be in wanting revenge, the main star that sold him down the river and left the murders and rape of his wife unpunished will be the good, righteous guy and will win in the end.

    Be careful who you sell down the river, you might become indirectly responsible for lots of innocent deaths ;)
  • 29th October 2010 by AKenjiB
    Well to be honest, he killed a lot of people who had done nothing wrong and I think it shows that revenge is never the right solution. I get what you're saying about Jamie Foxx's character, but I'd like to think that he learned from his mistakes.

    He wasn't a suicide bomber. Terrorists unwillingly planted that bomb onto him

Apparently cutting each other and reaching inside your partner's stomach is the ultimate turn on.

    That scene was so laughably stupid
Vantage Point
When you're an American tourist in Spain getting away from your wife for a while, and the president gets shot, and you realize you have the shooter on camera, and you were in close proximity to a huge bomb going off, and you help chase down Spanish cops, and you witness said Spanish cop get shot by secret service agents, and you risk your life by diving into traffic and grabbing some little girl who completely f**ked up your pants with her ice cream, and your wife calls you back to see what's going on, the response "No, I'm OK" will suffice. No need to go into detail.
