a short, sharp slap to the back of their knees
all good though.
I think I agree with you on the order. Tough though.
which were both decent but I don't really remember enough of them to rate them against each other.
And the sheer brutality of it?
Woody being all awesome and shit in Zombieland? The cameo?
But having said all that, I do agree. Just with less '>'es.
hence zombieland wins
Kick-Ass was alright, overrated though. Zombieland was quite enjoyable I think. Scott Pilgrim was amazing.
not seen Zombieland
Kick Ass just turns into another lame action movie for the last half hour.
The film Super does the same kind of thing but slightly better. It's brutal but not in a stylised "arent I cool" way.
And there's a film called Griff the Invisible which tells a similar story, but it's more mumblecore than michael bay.
kick-ass = ordinary boy becomes real life superhero
super = psychopath brutally beats people whilst dressed in spandex
Both Super and Kick Ass look at the 'real people becoming crime fighters' in similar ways to start off with. Both protaganists are seriously dysfunctional. The difference lies with where Kick Ass starts to embrace the cliche tropes of superhero action films towards the end (jetpack with miniguns) at which point it moves away from anything it had possibly to say about how being a 'superhero' would affect the person and made it just another action movie.
Super left the main characters fucked up. Scarred by what they did, by the violence they took part in.
Kick Ass didn't. It was the same cartoony OTT violence seen in Commando where the protaganist walks away after murdering countless faceless redshirts and continues on with his life as if nothing happened. It was a proper comic book adaptation. Attempting to view it as anything other than that is folly.
Kick Ass is very much 'black and white' with regards to who the bad guy is, and whether violence is a reasonable response. Much like the comics which inspired the original material.
Super never really did that.
also, it has nathan fillion <3
Kick Ass the film >>>> Kick Ass the comic
both good though
I kinda didn't get on with Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim though, Zombieland is brills
the other two are the worst film ever
the opening bit was alright but when the fights started, it was mind numbingly dull. The less said about the song in the first fight the better. Absolutely terrible
I began to absolutely love the film.
Different strokes to move the world and all that...
We Are Sex Bob-omb song has given me goosebumps. Anyhoo it's all Scott Pilgrim cause I haven't seen the other two.
both excellent films, I think SP definitely has more rewatch value though, so many little jokes you miss the first time around or which just get better with repetition. Not seen Kickass yet, need to rectify that at some point.
How ZANY is that guys?
Anyway, Scott Pilgrim > Kick Ass > Zom-rom-com
But Bill Murray =)
Might watch it sometime soon. Woody's normally a good watch aswell eh
watching George Michael fight Anne
i enjoyed Kick Ass a lot but I felt the last third gelled really poorly with the first two-thirds
I had not realised Ann was the lesbian (er, the L-word) girlfriend. That's brilliant.
she's, uh, pretty much unrecognisable
it's as Ann as the nose on plain's face
Scott Pilgrim (bar the slightly over zealous editing I don't really get the hate for this film) > Kick Ass > Zombieland
Kick Ass was completely shite.
Zombieland was fairly enjoyable.
Scott and Ramona weren't even vaguely interesting or likeable. I'm not a stickler for adaptations sticking to the source material (if I want to read the books again, I'll do that) but the film didn't have any of the warmth to it.
Zombieland is a better movie than Kick Ass, but they're both pretty damn good fun. Kick Ass is the only film that's ever made me want to whoop and cheer in a cinema, but Zombieland is less cheesy, so just gets the nod.
What the fuck is wrong with you fucking cunts?
sorry about this.
it was brilliant. very very well done.
The World Is not Enough or The World According To Garp?
If the latter, TW >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ZL > KA, SP
else ZL > KA, SP, TW
ZL is good
KA is shite
Zombieland is one of the funniest films ever, especially the Bill Murray cameo, bought it for 4pounds at Sainsburys the other day, WHAT A STEAL!
it was stylistic, sure, but a lot of pandering to the geek audience without much substance behind it. And it wasn't that funny... and the boyfriend concept seemed rushed and wasteful.
Zombieland - great film, let down by the 'hey, the girls are deserting us AGAIN' thing which got a bit annoying.
Not seen Scott and the Pilgrims
The ending of Zomberland let it down massively too. Oooh, we're girls and we need rescuing... Disappointing.
