Indeed he does look like if he were a midget on rehab for drug overdose when compared to the chick and other guys as well....like his two minions when he walked into the showers with the intention to beat up Ender.
He ended up using some object that was in the room, as you said with him being lanky and taking out such a dude...doesn't seem to connect, then again he's supposed to be a smart-ass.
The Hobbit...I've already seen the first one. It's refreshing to see other races more in-depth. The third one is going to be released this month no?
The funny thing is, I haven't read any of JRR Tolkien's books.
I think Inception is worth a watch, it's one of those movies where if you don't pay attention to what's going on, you'd get lost. Cobb (dicaprio's character) is a skilled extractor aka corporate espionage thief that is able to infiltrate into the subconscious of his targets while in dream state. Basically hacking into someone's dream and extract valuable information. The new task is for the team to plant an idea on someone else's mind, thought to be impossible.
I forgot about Romeo & Juliet. IIRC he was also in a movie called Shutter Island...which falls under the category of a psychological thriller. I haven't seen the departed yet...and I concur with the whole Brando level thing, it'd be a shame if he takes it that far
Ender's frame wasn't so bad, I mean Gonzo was worse, dude looked like he had aids and his muscles were atrophying. Hell Heilee Steinfield was physically bulkier than him and taller (not that she isn't adorable...she's just...enormous ) but he pretty much terrified everyone in the unit. Ender was..lanky and wiry but you could believe his body had fibrous muscle, where as with Gonzo he looked like an out of shape meth addict.
Still him flooring that mammoth of a kid even with a lucky shot was a bit much, I mean if he hit him with a crowbar or something but yeah.
Never saw inception, I liked him better in Romeo + Juliet than I did in Titanic and yeah in Django he was awesome, as a hammy over the top villain. In fact he does that pretty well to be honest, then there was the departed where he was pretty top notch.
I just hope he never goes full on "Island of Dr Mureau" level Brando..complete with the midget butler and the god damn KFC bucket on his head
I recall him being pretty much a horrible dirt bag but an amusing one, sorta like a troll one keeps around for entertainment.
Yeah he is a talented individual. He also has the ability to die on water often
Haven't seen much from him except for Inception, Titanic, Django & the great Gatsby. I think he did decently on the three I just mentioned, save the last one.
I honestly don't remember what book that dude is in, it's been so long since I've read the series, hell I didn't finished it....only read like two books and maybe half of another one and that was it. But yes that would have been a nice touch.
He was, definitely looked out of place several times. Gonzo's actor did his role well though, I laughed when he called his unit Pendejos, he did give the impression of a tough, bully and bossy dude. What you have to say about Ender beating him up and that other grown up dude? It looked comical, seeing Ender's frame
To be fair Dicaprio is pretty talented but he pulls a Brando and when given a crappy script he acts as neurotic and douchey as humanly possible which was basically what happened here...on top of everything else. Gatsby for example was so driven to never be poor again he'd of shot Daisy before even considering running away love or not when you live as he lived...it just doesn't happen.
A lack of Achilies the Douche made me very sad..but then again IIRC he wasn't in the first book was he?
Like you say and also that the dragons were trying to wash out and pulled the most retarded, unthinkable tactics possible in the hopes to achieve that...with Enders disgust being a mix of the whole "you lied to me" and the guilt.
Enders Actor was also..not up to par with the other kids and it was painfully apparent
I saw Ender's Game and overall it was well done. It's been a while since I've read the book so some details escaped me. However I do coincide with you on how the Graduation day was played out. Ender's winning move in the film came out as being thought out and carried out like so...whereas if you have the commander pulling off something out of desperation regardless of how imprudent it would have been but still managing to get the job done, would have made a nicer touch. Needless to say, we ended up having an closure that seemed way too easy a win for them.
I would have liked to see Ender's gradual progress a little more, this was rushed perhaps due to time constraints..also IIRC the guns they used during training were about the only thing that provided them with a sense of direction and impulse withing the capsule...that was not included in the film..still I enjoyed it.
Indeed, I concur as well like I mentioned on the previous BG convo. There was an earlier adaptation of the film that was better developed imo. This one...feels more inclined towards things like the bling and the glam and the fashion....you don't connect to the characters because the profound feeling just isn't there. I think that what made Gatsby look ridiculous also was when Daisy wanted to run away...undermining and ultimately minimizing and downplaying Gatsby's accomplishments and efforts to nothing...highlighting the flaws Leonardo's performance...but hey, that's how the producers wanted it.
I share Wishies sentiments about Gatsby being depressingly underwhelming adding, it was too fast paced. It focused way too much on the pimp'n and the ball'n aspect of the story which basically means you know the idiots what produced the movie completely missed the moral of the damn story in the first place. Also Gatsby came off as depressingly pathetic as opposed to someone who made himself into this image to escape extreme poverty and forged it to where he owned it which made him somewhat terrifying and ominous...where as Dicaprios performance was more..a man child not comprehending the world.
Let me know what you think of the film...I was impressed but I would have kept the King novel ending..as opposed to what they did here
I thought it was epic when it came out right when Kim was barking the loudest about nuking countries and testing ballistic missiles. Pure win man
Yeah it was a domestic one. A friend of mine came from hawaii and brought her dog, apparently the dog had to stay behind at the airport for 3 days. Thought it was weird and retarded, don't remember what happened though. International Flights can be such a drag.
Yeah definitely. Glad she's back on the forums as well.
Impressive, well since I have the time, I'll go see it tomorrow. Everyone else seem to be distracted with the Thor film that came out recently too. Finally got to watch The Great Gatsby as well in a long time.
