Collateral was great up until the club shootout ended, after that nothing made sense anymore. Why did Vincent want Max back as his driver? Why not just cap him there at the front of the club with Ruffalo, wasn't he going to kill Max anyway when the job was going to be finished? Just take that damn cab yourself and go finish the one hit you still have on your list you dimwit, or are you unable to drive? What if Max, distraught about all of this, crashes the car? Oh, he did. GG Mr. master assassin. And how convenient coincidence it turns out that Vincent's final hit, out of all ppl living in that megalopolis, is the new crush of Max who he just met before taking Vincent in his cab, what a stupid twist. Next Max turns an Action Jackson, easily defeating a police officer detaining him, rescuing his newly heartthrob and even defeating Vincent in the end. :roll:

The first 3/4 of the movie was still awesome with a lot of good shit for martial arts nerds like me, like the scene where Vincent handled those "homies" at the back alley. Out from the line of fire, shooting from retention (as you should in such close quarters), capping the other guy with two bullets in the center mass, one in the head. All this without any cuts and with such smooth stuntwork they must've practiced this months under a competent tactical shooting instructor.

Manhunter sure is a classic, but the final showdown between Graham and Dollarhyde felt a bit over-the-top and silly and that final scene where Graham is having quality time with his family at the beach feels somewhat jarring ending for such somber movie. Still, maybe my favourite Mann film along with Heat (which also had a bad ending :D ).

And yes, Mark Ruffalo sucks.

Collateral's also the movie where Peter Berg became obsessed with becoming the next Michael Mann only to show he's incapable of shooting clear action or directing movies that aren't trash: see Mile 22 and Battleship.

I had no clue where to put this so I'm putting it here:



Watched this from beginning to end for the first time and a couple things stuck out to me:

a) Pretty much the slippery slope into the shitshow begins with the guy asking Downey if he was still a liberal or not. Interrupting the movie promotion to make sure Downey is still on the side of (((them))).

b) This fartknocker sounds EXACTLY like Miscarriage of Acchild, to the point where when the camera was on Jr. I thought he was being interviewed by Miscarriage of Acchild. Not only with his accent but the way he pauses when he finishes his sentences.

c) "You're foot is starting to jump a bit you better get to your next question!" LOL

d) Also at the very end, douchey interviewer crosses his arms like a grade schooler who just got a toy taken away as he tries to ask his last question.

If this goes much further we'll learn that Doge killed JFK.
But he was aiming for Jackie. The misogynist bastard.

I can only imagine the sandnigger controversy/pandering that could potentially come from this.

So what if he gave the "wrong" answer? Would Disney kill off Iron Man inbetween Avengers movies?

There's really no way to win with Muzzies. No matter what you do, they chimp out. This was a bad idea for a reboot. They should have changed the setting to China (like the original story) if they just HAD to do it.

I didn't know Alladin Sane was set in China.
But Didney already has Moolinyan and a Moolinyan reboot for that.

The source material is a bit weird in that regard since all the names and titles (and probably the culture as well) are still Arabic. "China" is basically a shorthand for "totally not here".

What I read (probably on Wiki) is that it was some Euro that first wrote this story. Claimed he heard it from some rugmerchant or something. Doesn't seem to be any evidence that this was actually ever an Arabian fable, although they've apparently accepted it as one of theirs now.
