The zombie genre is dying. It might resurrect at some point in the future, but it needs more time. Much like the break between Romero's Day of the Dead in the early '80s and the resurgence of the genre in the turn of the century.
Mir@k: Exodis is the little kid of the forum, compared to everyone else. Grey: From now on i will call you eggy because i don't like x but ex sounds like eggs. i like eggs. Yog: Exodis, your manner of speech and the way you conduct yourself is beginning to evolve to the point where I'm starting to like you. Blood Lord: Yup, Randori is a very well respected night elf of the community. His valuable service to the site has brought great blessings to this people. BeeAre: I'm totally gay for Randori.
This is a good year for movies though, imho. As of right now, the top movies for me are going to be Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness, and then the Hobbit part 2 later this year. Oh, and Thor 2 looks good as well.

Yeah, it's almost a requirement now. I watched the original Bourne trilogy recently and was kind of bored. They got very good reviews but the movies are pure action genre, with even the dialogue scenes (annoyingly) having the camera shake constantly.
I watched Super, which is on Netflix, at least in America. An excellent film. It's basically what happens if a normal guy decides to try to be a superhero. And this is actual normal, not film normal. It's also a pretty violent film. It was hilarious to me, though for others the humor might not be that strong.
I've been watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix (a new exclusive for Netflix) and it's been pretty good. It's about a woman in a prison. Only a few episodes in but it's gotten critical acclaim across the board, so it apparently never delves into cliche as it hasn't so far in my viewing (e.g. a guy might think a woman's prison will be full of hot, lesbian sex). It seems to care a lot about all its characters, and seeing how prison works in more intimate detail is pretty interesting.
That it has so many compelling female roles that don't just revolve around another guy or their sexuality probably merits watching it for that fact alone.
So I saw Pacific Rim on Saturday. Completely worth it and I wish more people would go see it. It did feel a bit cliched here and there with some parts, but holy shit the actual fight scenes were great. I expected the monsters to look great and everything with Del Toro directing, but those fights surprised me, I didnt think he could pull that off.

I went to go see Pacific Rim and for the first time in a while I had fun in a movie. I was not bored throughout the whole thing. I even liked Charlie from Sunny in Philadelphia (I don't know his real name) as that goof ball scientist. I think he was even my favorite character. There wasn't one character I didn't like in the whole movie. Even the asshole guy become a lot less of an asshole at some point.
The movie was just what it needed to be and I was thankful for that. Del Toro is one of my favorite directors and he has never made a single bad movie in my eyes.
I grew up watching these kind of movies. I've seen maybe every Godzilla movie and I've seen my share of Anime. I'm actually happy this movie was made and it had a director who knew what the fuck he was doing and a budget it needed.
Some people might say that some things in it was silly, but this is the Kaiju and the giant robot genre. Its fun stuff like this is why we watched it.
If I were to sum up the overarching plot of Godzilla vs Biollante, Godzilla vs King Ghidora, and Godzilla vs Space Godzilla (and yes those movies do tie into each other) everything else might seem normal to you.
The people might not like it are people who don't like giant robots and monsters and if they don't like that why would they go see it anyways... unless they just like to bitch about movies they don't like.
But I was finally having fun in the movie theater again and I'm glad I saw this movie
