Kick-Ass: I read the graphic novel as well, and this was a little more sanitized than that. I like Mark Millar's work, his ideas are incredible and smash typical comic-book norms, but he does have a tendency to go too violent and over-the-top. The break out star is the little girl who plays Hit-Girl, trained by her ex-cop father to kill bad guys. There's one scene where she violently kills an apartment full of bad guys with the old "Banana Splits" cartoon theme music. Probably one of the more brilliant movie ideas. There's another massacre scene with Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation." I think the songs themselves in the movie were covers by other bands, though. Oh, and the girl who becomes our hero's girlfriend? Way too hot for him. He becomes friends with her originally because she thought he was gay, but then he reveals his secret identity as Kick-Ass and that he's not gay. And thanks to this manipulation, she bangs him. In the comic, she yelled at him and embarassed him in front of the school. Movie-wise, I like the fact he gets the girl. Anti-Spiderman.
Inception: I think I have to watch this movie several more times before I get it completely. A buddy pointed out that the jack is his wife's totem, not his. So everytime he spins it to see if he's still in the dream, it's his wife's state that he's seeing. The end confused me a bit too, because it looks like the jack stops mid-spin, and spins a different way. Also, all of the character's front names spells out DREAM.
Takers: Meh. Only cool scenes are during the two heists, made better with T.I.'s gangster commentary. Anakin Skywalker was in it, dressed like some Rat-Packer, and made some bad acting choices. If people thought he was stiff in Star Wars (I'm not one of those people, by the way), wait till they get a load of him here.
Jonah Hex: Didn't know what to expect, but it was pretty good. A good western, but too much 21st century commentary. A terrorist with the ultimate weapon and suicide bombers? The whole bit about Jonah's face got a bit old, but they owned up to that. Meghan Fox is flippin' gorgeous, and is not believable as a Old West Hooker.
Coming soon: New Fast and Furious, Captain America, Thor, Green Lantern!!
