    Have you seen the Italian Promotional posters for it? I hear they really convey the true message of the film ... (sarcasm) LOL
    Omg...no, I did not see that. Brad Pitt must be big in Italy (sarcasm). More like Pitt will sell more tickets than the real star of the film Ejiofor. So much for my point about cultural significance...lol.

    Well to be fair, the producers of the film have said it was not one of the approved posters, and the Italian Distributor made them himself. Still, sad to see such a "good message" (I put it in quotes, because its more the history that needs to be shared, than any sort of 'positive' message) overshadowed by something so silly like this. Which apparently it was a pretty big deal.

    Saw American Hustle and The wolf of wall street..both pretty good. But, if you're to see any movie out in theatres right now, it's wolf. Just a beyond hilarious, amazing film. The best Dicaprio-Scorsese collab. and that's saying something.

    Curious what were your guys' favourite movies of 2013? A lot of good ones come to mind (too many to list), but I gotta say the most fun I had at the theatres was watching Pacific Rim. Amazing CGI, great action sequences, just clean simple fun man. It was amazing to watch on IMAX 3D. I know it's not going to win any Oscars or anything lol but again just a fun movie.

    Also I don't get all the hate for Man of Steel, I've rewatched my copy a bunch of times and I love it. Sure there are a couple silly plot holes here and there (it is a comic book movie after all), but overall I think Zach Snyder nailed it. Tone, action etc. The scenes with Costner were fantastic. By far the best Superman movie imo. Idk maybe I'm just too much of a Snyder/Superman fanboy.

    Ya, I'd say Man of Steel was the movie from 2013 that left the biggest impression on me, and left me wanting for more.
    I don't understand the hate at all. I thought it was near perfect to be honest.

    So Man of Steel 2 aka Superman VS Batman movie got pushed back a year to 2016. That one should be epic. Though I'm still not sold on Affleck as Batman.

    They've casted Wonder Woman for that movie as well:

    Gal Gadot from the Fast and the Furious franchise. Interesting choice.

    Yea that's a bit of a head scratcher for me. Physically I don't think she fits the role for wonder woman. She's pencil thin. But I guess she could always bulk up. Gal Gadot is beautiful nonetheless.

    Unless they went with one of those "Body Rock" girls, I'm not sure any Actress would really fit the bill.
    Those girls are crazy! And still easy on the eyes.
    Mind you, Wonder Woman is supposed to be 'Amazonian', likely implying 6-foot tall type Powerful.
    I think in order to make her relatable you go with an good-looking girl like Gal.

    If anyone here was considering going to see Lone Survivor, I would highly recommend going. Its a terrific movie.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman is dead .... HUUGE bummer.


    I've always though there's someone out there who Celebrities will pay, that will give them a new identity and move them out to some private island where they're all laughing at us .. I know it.
