While at its core, it's just a disaster movie with a low bodycount I really digged the scienceporn.
Bullock was damned good ... and this for a lady who's been stuck in no-brainer romcoms of late.
For some reason, Ryan turns to religion at a few points in the story ... the movie makers couldn't resist some no-atheists-in-foxholes, I guess. Well, in the end she ditches any thought of prayer and actuallt gets stuff done (hey, maybe that's why it was put in)
I, Frankenstein 5/10
Plenty of CGI eyecandy but the story was paperthin. I guess the idea was to make Frankenstein/Adam a darker Hellboy. But while the actor did a pretty good job, he was let down by the script. Also, a bit of a pet peeve of mine, Franky's strenght and durability keeps getting higher as the story progresses. It's as if season 7 Buffy could fly and shoot lasers out of her ass.
Kick-Ass 2 6.5/10
Pretty good story but they should have decided before writing it if they were ok with people dying. Now it was seesawing between "everybody dies" and "everybody has massive character shields". The romance between Kick-Ass and Hit Girl could easily been massively cringeworthy but they handled it tastefully.
I would have given a 7 but I substracted half a point for the shit joke. What is it with US movies and shit jokes?! It's as if writers, whenever they feel like they need just one more joke, but can't think of anything, they just go "Yeah, let's stick a shit joke in there, that's always funny"
