  1. Matt Goodman

    I didn’t love it but it was pretty good. I’m pretty sure the 3D was useless.

  2. Aaron Neuwirth

    The 3D wasn’t bad. Not important in anyway, but i’ve seen worse.

  3. Matt Goodman

    Cars 2 was one of the worst 3D films.

  4. Brian White

    There was 3D in it? Myself and my two guests did not see anything at the 3-D presentation of this movie. LOL. Story included! I will give it a second chance, but unlike THOR, I dishearted everything to do with this film. And that’s right Aaron..I actually liked Green Lantern! I’m so lost 🙁

  5. Sean Ferguson

    I couldn’t see the 3D from where I was sitting (front row all the way to the left) or actually much of the movie as well but what I did see I liked. I can’t wait to see this again from the proper viewpoint!

  6. Aaron Neuwirth

    Of the few compliments I had for Green Lantern, it was that the 3D conversion was not bad at all actually. It was the story conversion that was terrible.

  7. Gregg Senko

    I didn’t like this or Green Lantern. The best parts of Captain America were Hayley Atwell and the guy who fell into a propeller. This movie needed to take itself more seriously than it did. Thor can get away with that. Cap can’t.

  8. Aaron Neuwirth

    I felt the tone was just right, going for a retro vibe in the vein of Indiana Jones, which is exactly what my dad said it reminded him of after he saw it.

  9. Brian White

    You are right. It did feel dry like Indy 4!

  10. Gregg Senko

    I love Indy 4! Annunaki!

  11. Matt Goodman

    Indy 4 was awesome for me, worst in the series, but still awesome!

  12. Gregg Senko

    See, Temple of Doom is still at the bottom of my Indy list. Kali-maahhh!

  13. Gerard Iribe

    Indy 4 was garbage.

  14. Aaron Neuwirth

    I’m with Matt on Indy 4, but wouldn’t quite say awesome.

  15. Sean Ferguson

    Indy 4 is the weakest of the series but I still enjoyed it. I just wish it had had a script worthy of that team.

  16. Matt Goodman

    Temple of Doom was great, Gregg. Indy 4 is at the bottom of my list, along with Last Crusade. I didn’t mind how farfetched or poorly written it was, I still liked it.

  17. Brian White

    I couldn’t agree more with what Matt just said. I feel the same!

  18. Gregg

    I just watched ‘Black Death’ and it was better than everything.

  19. Brian White

    I’m going to reach out to you in advance Gerard so I don’t get burned. Let me know after you suffer through this if you want to make some kind of trade for Bereavement or something with this. I don’t have anyway to rent this to watch it a second time so let me know pretty please.
