    How does someone praise Nicolas Cage and then accuse another actor of "overacting"?

    Watched Now You See Me last week. Fairly entertaining, but the completely unnecessary "romantic" aspect and ending made me want to puke.

    I thought it was terrible. A poor choice for Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine (he's done several bad films though).

    On another note, I had to stop The Wolverine because my daughter woke up halfway through a mass killing, so I reserve judgement.

    I liked The Wolverine. Probably one of the better comic book movies released this year which isn't really saying much.

    Nicolas Cage is awful. Most of his films belong in this thread; http://www.styleforum.net/t/369896/terrible-movies-you-hate-to-admit-you-enjoy

    I thought he was good in Kick-Ass where he played a supporting role.

    I haven't seen The Wolverine, but I may give it a watch. I loved X-Men as a child but I've never been interested in watching the films, as with most comic book movies really.

    Recently I've watched;

    Gravity - Wow. Simply stunning to watch. I didn't get a chance to see it in IMAX so I can only imagine how incredible it must look. Overall though I thought it was OK. The problem for me was that there wasn't really much character development, so I didn't care what happened to Sandra Bullock and had to watch her going 'Ahhh, Ohhh!' for 1hr30mins.

    Prisoners - I liked it. Hugh Jackman was good. Anyone that enjoyed this should also check out Zodiac.

    Well Stitchy I am no Roger Ebert, but I believe that it is the script which makes or breaks a movie.
    Now you see me had two dimensional characters played by good actors (I also like Ruffalo and Harrelson), a confusing plot for no apparent reason, not much to like for me there.

    Watched Moonstruck last night. We're probably too young/from another era, because the three of us all just thought it was weird. Had some funny moments but was somewhat difficult to continue

    I say good for Freeman. It's not like it affects his reputation to keep doing shitty movies.

    I see awful lot of movies that would be virtually unwatchable in a theater yet I enjoy them laying on my couch a few steps from my kitchen . Just an observation. I'm sure this is pretty common . Anyway this explains why I was able to watch We're the Millers yesterday a movie that appeared to
    have a hilarious plot backed up by competent comedy actors but I bet it really sucked in the theater

    Madness.

    Hard not to like that movie, but how is it that it took this long for you to watch it?
