juanvasquez -> RE: (25/1/2010 11:24:41 PM)

Looking forward to this, even more so now. Hopefully it's playing in my local chav-plex.




robwillphill -> RE: Kick-Ass (27/1/2010 7:40:37 PM)

"BubbleGum Tarantino" is what it looks like to me - cant wait!




plum bob -> RE: Kick-Ass (17/2/2010 3:51:03 PM)

went past the cinema earlier and saw you had given it 5 stars empire on the poster. hurry and get the review online. I am certainly very interterested in reading about this fun looking movie

on't actually have an iPhone.  Thanks.




odddaze -> RE: Kick-Ass (19/2/2010 12:14:07 PM)

I've seen the movie and it's great, very much worthy of 4 stars, not 5. It's like a comedic Watchmen.




hatebox -> RE: Kick-Ass (20/2/2010 2:16:20 PM)

The Empire website has pretty much been a glorified advert for this film in recent months.




piccolo135 -> RE: Kick-Ass (20/2/2010 6:21:05 PM)

Empire is pretty much the only place I've seen extensive promo's for Kick-Ass, I imagine they are plugging it so much because they think its really good.




Matt865 -> RE: Kick-Ass (22/2/2010 6:01:42 PM)

So, Wossy was right. 5 stars in the April mag. Being a celebrity apparently does have its advantages. 




timkins -> RE: Kick-Ass (24/2/2010 4:22:52 PM)

I'm afraid to say I hope this film tanks, and tanks horribly. Why? Well, it may well be a superb movie, but Empire magazine TELLING ME, over and over, that it will be my New Favourite Film, (three times and counting, now) and how the little girl is a new ready made icon, etc etc blah blah, is exactly the best way to turn me off it. Forced iconhood is no iconhood at all. Sorry, but there you go.




UTB -> RE: Kick-Ass (24/2/2010 5:16:41 PM)

The review is a bit ZOMG! but even so I'll still give it a go.

Seem a perfectly valid reason to hate a film...




andyswright -> RE: Kick-Ass (26/2/2010 10:53:30 AM)

Does Empire have shares in Vaughn's career? Are they his new agent? They've been plugging this one like the second coming of Christ. All I see is KISS ASS.

And the rest - 'Hey kids meet your new favourite star/ costume/ director/ elephant/ lighthouse/ bagel/ whatever'. I hate that. I see it printed often and find it very patronizing. We're not all 14 you know.

But kick-ass looks like proper fun in the sun for all. and I hope it makes a ton of money, hollywood's idea of how to make movies needs another big fat slap I think.

Sanitization for all. Be quiet, take your pills and look at all the pretty pictures. No, there's nothing that will offend you here. The good guys love their mum's and the naughty skinheads learn the error of their ways and change their outlook on life to become better people and good neighbours to the kapur's and the wongs. and look, all the little orphans have got their parents back, christmas isn't cancelled anymore and look mummy it's snowing . . . ooh I can hear the tinkle of little bells . . . its rosebud! she's calling to me to come and play. oh daddy its perfect. just like real life . . . 

Repeat . . . Repeat . . . Repeat . . . Repeat . . . .Repeat . . . . Repeat . . . . Repeat . . . . Repeat . . . . switch off








Rgirvan44 -> RE: Kick-Ass (26/2/2010 10:56:47 AM)

Ho ho ho.

Thats a clever pun.

Oh, I never said hate-- I have not seen it, so have no real reason to love or hate it. Thus the grimness of being TOLD I'm going to love it.

So, you don't mind being told what to think if it fits your own bias, then....




TheSpleen -> RE: Kick-Ass (26/2/2010 8:49:08 PM)

Really wanted to see this when i first heard about it but after reading all the press Empire has given it over the last few months over and over and after reading the magazine review i may aswell not bother. Plot was explained in the review.




empire No. 1 -> RE: Kick-Ass (27/2/2010 2:26:13 AM)

bubblegum tarantino? that should be the quads quote! not seen it yet, but i bet he would be delighted, no matter what. for my , it LOOKS delicious.

I have no idea what you mean. I was being sarcastic.




jedi fu -> RE: Kick-Ass (27/2/2010 5:56:56 PM)

ah I see what you mean.  Me thinking the film looks good fun from the trailer and the source material has nothing to do with being told by kids this is gonna be my favourite film. If I think it looks good its got nothing to do with people telling me im gonna love it. Being told to love something used to put me off checking it out but like i said im not 14 anymore, rebelling for the sake of being different. Kick ass looks good, wanting it to fail because people tell you to love it is so 1986.




jedi fu -> RE: Kick-Ass (27/2/2010 6:00:14 PM)

Dont hate the film. Hate the journalist. Its not the filmmakers fault the journalist's write themselves into a sugar rush over your film.




andyswright -> RE: Kick-Ass (27/2/2010 6:14:27 PM)

I don't think people are 'rebelling' because they're being told to like it, I think its more of a case of 'stop ramming it down our throats, you're spoiling the fun for us'. Hyping up films is not going to make me rush out and see them.

If I'm honest, I buy Empire for the interviews/articles, not the reviews. Whilst its interesting to see what they think of new movies, I've lost count over the amount of times they've dished out rave reviews for complete crap. The reviews are without a doubt the weakest part of the magazine.




jedi fu -> RE: Kick-Ass (28/2/2010 6:05:10 AM)

exactly.
Its good to know what movies are coming up but not so good being told how much we're gonna love them[sm=schild15.gif]

Fair enough!

I'll take you at your word, but the picture you paint of "sanitization for all" is pretty fourteen-year-oldy.

As opposed to the terrible I-want-I-want-I-want-doesn't-get epidemic of 1987, you mean? Those were dark days!

It's very much on topic  :)




jedi fu -> RE: Kick-Ass (4/3/2010 10:50:56 AM)

I don't know how to do the multiple quote's in one answer thingy so I'll bullet point  [8D]


*but the picture you paint of "sanitization for all" is pretty fourteen-year-oldy*
- Its not my picture. I borrowed it from George Orwell but added movieism's instead of political propaganda. isnt big brother patronizing and condesending? I always thought he was . .

*As opposed to the terrible I-want-I-want-I-want-doesn't-get epidemic of 1987, you mean?*
-ha ha ha, but no. 1986 as in: I was 14 in 1986 :)

*I don't hate the film, I already said.*
-I meant that thought more as a general statement than a response directly to you, sorry

*It's very much on topic*
-But I was slagging of journalist's rather than commenting on Kick-Ass??!

*[sm=schild15.gif]*
-How do you do the multiple quote's in one answer thingy?!








CORLEONE -> RE: Kick-Ass (4/3/2010 11:05:56 AM)

Why is this thread even here when Empire haven't even got a review up?




andyswright -> RE: Kick-Ass (4/3/2010 1:13:38 PM)

Its reviewed in this month's mag.... You can't missed it, its the one with all the smeared lipstick over its bottom.
