The first video is pretty damn funny. I just hope everyone knows he's joking about some of the film (you know which ones).
ScottMontgomery - 1/1/2014, 3:31 PM
Somehow Mr.Sunday's videos are funny even without his voice!!
AsianVersionOfET - 1/1/2014, 3:35 PM
Totally agree with you on Gravity. Fun to look at, but it's just pure shit.

Watched The Lone ranger......Not bad at all....kids loved it....it just came out at the wrong time...same for Jack and The Giant Slayer.
TheBeard - 1/1/2014, 4:22 PM
justin biebers believe = cinematic triumph LMAO!!

Anchorman 2 was very funny

the anchorman mass riot was good but the fight in the first movie was better- imo

the anchorman team cameos before the fight were better in anchorman 2 though

1.Man Of Steel- Exciting and The Best Superhero movie of all time and Gave Superman 45 Minutes of Hash time also The Ending has been The Most Talked About and Henry Cavill Topped Reeve as The Man Of Steel

2.The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug-An exciting Fantasy Adventure that had you at The Edge of your seat and Amazing performance from Benedict Cumberbatch's Smaug The Terrible

3.Star Trek Into Darkness-Cumberbatch Played A Star Trek Villain worth remembering to The T and He was an Awesome antagonist in The Last 45 Minutes as well as well and amazing story on kirk earning his stripes as Captain of The U.S.S. Enterprise

4.The Hunger Games:Catching Fire-An Exciting Tale on Peoples Champion and one person to change the course of History with Katniss Everdeen prelude to the war between all the districts and Panem and more about why the games are wrong

5.Thor:The Dark World-Marvel Returned to Form after the dismal failure of Iron Man 3 with Thor battling Malekiths Dark Forces that almost laid waist to the entire Universe amazing performances from Hemsworth,Hiddleston,Portman and Eccleston

6.Elysium-Heathcare Poor needs Rich Blomkapp delievers the Goods once again better and its than Distirct 9 and Amazing Performance from Sharlto Copley as The Films villain Kruger

7.Now You See Me-An Unexpected Surprise Starring The Four Horsemen made it one the Best due to stellar cast and dramedy and with you going What Just Happened?

8.The Wolverine-Basically The Definitive Wolverine Story Hugh Jackman played Wolverine to The T and The Post Credit Scene was WHOA!!

10.The Great Gatsby-One of The Most Visually stimulating films with Leonardo DiCaprio as Richman Jay Gatsby proved to be the Tragedy and amazing Soundtrack worth an Oscar Nod

Jollem - 1/1/2014, 5:05 PM

@Superguy83

You really think Henry was a better Superman than Reeve? You are either not a real Superman fan, or you're trollin boy.

I still have to give #1 to the Wolverine this year.

I just watched the extended cut for probably the 8th time, and the whole movie still gives me chills. The landscapes, the characters, the performances. It was near perfect.

Now, people will cry about the deviations from source, and the Silver Samurai change, and that's fine. But I've never given a damn about source accuracy. I like to see the original ideas of writers and directors. That's why I love the Wolverine. It's differences from the original story are well handled, and the original ideas were beautifully planned and executed. The cinematography was first rate, and Hugh Jackman gets better each time he returns as Logan.

Everything else was as I imagined it would be...

I loved both Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World
I disliked Man of Steel(well made movie, just don't like Superman).
GodzillaKart - 1/1/2014, 9:53 PM
The worst films IMO:

MOS
Wolverine
RIPD
STID
The Hobbit: Smaug
Ender's Game

The Best:

T:TDW
IM3
Gravity
The Worlds End

Off the top of my head.
GodzillaKart - 1/1/2014, 9:54 PM
I think the Hobbit has to take the cake for the worst of the worst.
GodzillaKart - 1/1/2014, 10:00 PM
Maybe if the Benny Hill song was playing when the dwarves were running around with Smaug?


GodzillaKart - 1/1/2014, 10:26 PM
Oh, sorry!!!!

*spoiler*

The Hobbit is [frick]ing stupid.
MCott - 1/1/2014, 11:56 PM
Why do people only remember Cumberbatch as Smaug? He's playing two roles in those movies. Smaug and the Necromancer of Dol Guldur

*Spoiler (if you've read Tolkein, it's not a spoiler)*

The Necromancer is Sauron.
GinjaNinja - 1/2/2014, 7:36 AM
Agreed with what he said about MoS and Thor.

MoS: Flawed but entertaining.
Thor: Great but tonely weird.
TMP - 1/2/2014, 12:43 PM
The only CBM I liked this year was The Wolverine. I didn't see TDW, and the only reason why MOS & IM3 aren't the most disappointing films I've ever seen is because of how disappointing Prometheus was. Here's hoping the CBM's next year don't suck as hard as they did this year (Even though TASM2 looks like the most generic CBM of all time)
I still haven't seen The Wolf of Wall Street, but the best films I've seen this year are probably 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, Inside Llewyn Davis and Nebraska. Hunger Games Catching Fire and American Hustle were also pretty fantastic.
TMP - 1/2/2014, 12:45 PM
Oh, and the worst films I saw this year are Hansel & Gretel, Die Hard 5, White House Down, G.I. Joe Retaliation and After Earth (I rented it out of curiosity and nearly fell asleep)
Ramiel - 1/2/2014, 2:49 PM
My fave movies of the year are:

1. Frozen
