    My thought exactly when I read that

    People assume sci fi means throwing all rules out the window

    I too saw Lucy this weekend with the Wife. My Daughter saw it and raved about it. I left the theater feeling like I threw away money. So much potential on the theme but just fell way short. Barely got out of the blocks on what it could have been IMO. Would be a great idea for a Series IMO, but the movie just didn't really take advantage of all of the possibilities. To add to it, it was only 90 minutes long. If not for some of the visuals, the movie would have been a complete disaster for me.

    I would not recommend it.

    Correct. Some of the best early Sci-fi became Sci-fact.

    I never said that at all, you are just assuming. The reality is that I have seen many Sci-Fi flicks over the years and the overwhelming majority of them have holes that could annoy a viewer if they were so inclined. This movie was merely okay (as are most Sci-Fi movies), with a bump in points for some of the action sequences and a few other things that I did enjoy. If it was good sci-fi writing I would have graded it as such.

    Not surprised Lucy created such a split audience. Loved the idea, enjoyed the movie... average cgi.... not enough time to really tell the story thoroughly.
    I missed the days of blade runner and alien.... even inception used camera tricks, and cable work........ camera tricks/models/ production design over excessive cgi all day, every day.

    6.5/10 3/4

    Lucy was good. They rushed through some of it.

    I was referring to his roles lately. This and Transcendence were terrible.

    Capt America 2: I love marvel movies but here , nice is the best I can say . The big surprise was no surprise at all (identity of winter soldier). They could not have made the falcon more of a cardboard character if they had tried. Capt America is just too limited a character in terms of his powers and everything seems to go back to the tired old "nazi" theme. Need to move on. If he were not "Capt America" he does not get another movie. 6/10

    "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"

    I thought it was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good.

    I agree with Ice's criticism about the use of the automatic weapons. The ape on horseback firing one weapon in each hand/arm was way over top for me. Not too mention how proficient the apes became at shooting automatic weapons so quickly– that caused me to do an eye-roll in the theater. Also the apes took loads of casualties, I found it hard to believe there were enough left to over-run the humans.

    Other than those comments, I enjoyed the rest of the movie.

    It's the type of thing that everyone knows what's going to happen at the end, but the twists and turns the story took made it interesting none the less.

    8/10.

    more crazy you didn't give it a 10.

    the scene with Koba riding the horse shooting machine guns in both hands alone is worth a 10

    Really pretty boring on the whole. Very long. I fell asleep for a few minutes during it.

    Maybe if there was an actual ape named Dawn riding the horse. Then I could have gotten in the cross-Nova fantasy.

    Lmao
