The Last Witch Hunter

Just saw this movie yesterday. IMO, it had a lot of good special effects, but the story seemed a bit muddled. Much of the plot seemed a rehash of other witch/horror movies.

Intersting. I was going to watch it on Sunday. I've heard mixed reviews; although, none of them are overly complimentary. They tend to range between fun movie to vomit inducing.

For once, I got the rare chance to watch a movie in a theater (married with young kids pretty much has nixed me getting to a theater to see what I want to see).

I'll give two scores:

Versus my expectations for the movie going in = 4/5 stars
I expected Vin Diesel doing supernatural butt-kicking with just enough story to keep things moving along. It delivered that. Overall, it entertained me and slightly exceeded my expectations based on the description of the movie.

Note: I presume there is some other book/comic/IP out there that the movie is based on given the ending. I am not familiar with it and thus that did not taint my expectations.

Overall = 3/5
It was fine to see in the theater once. If I come across it on TV, I would stop channel flipping and watch chunks of it again or put it in the Netflix queue. Its a good popcorn munching movie that is not unique, but fun none-the-less.


From a gamer perspective: As a Savage Worlds guy, I could easily see running something in that genre and it provided nice Trappings ideas for powers. One could tie this in nicely with the re-released Rippers or East Texas University with ease.

It's not really that good, or that bad. It's just kind of average. I'd not recommend paying full theater price to watch it. Wait and rent it when it hits the dollar rack.

I think I did pay matinee price. But I did not pay that much attention since I was just happy to get to see a movie in a theater.

Although, I was rather indignant that they did not pause the movie when I had to go to the bathroom. I mean, I did pay money they should cater to me. They should be trying to outdo my home viewing experience. And there were only like 8 people in the whole place and for some strange reason 2 of them sat one seat away from me - WTF? its an empty theater go sit somewhere else. And too many previews, yada yada yada.

I am not sure I am ready to see Star Wars in the the theater, apparently.

I'll be watching it forfree. I have a free pass, and the theater gives you a free pass on your birthday, so I won't have to pay for the movie. I'll just be paying to eat, and the good thing about this theater is that they have good food. It has a full bar, and it has a restaurant, so you can order food and have it brought to your seat while watching a movie.

...I've had the same thing happen, but I think that it's more due to where I sit. I like to pick the upper section right in the middle, so I can see the screen without looking up or down. Yesterday there were four of us and we were all within three seats of each other.

...I am so ready for Star Wars, I'm going the Tuesday after it's released. I want to grab the matinee around noonish.

...They put in a place like that just north of here a few months ago. Unfortunately, the food is way overpriced. It's cheaper for me to eat in the food court and use the theater at the mall.
 



..average, but they serve beer so most people don't seem to notice much...
Not too bad, I guess. The place here has pretty good food. Their beer selection is not great, but they do have a full liquor bar, so there's that. The food is more costly, but I'd expect to pay a premium in a place like this. I mean, you don't have to put up with screaming kids. You have to be 21+ to get in, no exceptions. The tickets are more expensive as well. If you and your girl go, you'll spend at about $35 in tickets, or more if it's a 3D movie. The food and drinks can run you a good amount. I usually end up spending at least $65 on food. The high prices tends to keep the less than civil types out, so I don't mind paying more to watch a movie there.

...I mainly go on Tuesdays. It's discount day. I end up spending around $16-$17 ($6 for lunch at the food court, $6 for the movie ticket and $4 for a soda in the theater).

I tend to go during the weekend, when there are more people wanting to see movies. During the week I have to see clients and make sure the employees I have don't need any additional supports. It's easier for me to see them on the weekend. Also, I can't stand mall food court food.
 


..There are 3 malls within a 10 minute drive of me. The movies that I go to are in the overpriced, fancy mall. The food court there is decent, the other two...well, not so much.
Yeah, this theater is in a pricey area. It's got a food court, but the food court food isn't my thing. This mall also has a lot of good restaurants, but I like eating during the movie, and they are far more strict about outside food in this theater.

One of the joys of living in the Third World: 3 dollar movie tickets.

And it's even better with a new cinema which, unlike the old cinema, is not infested with rats.
 

I saw it yesterday. It was a fun movie. Nothing amazing, but then again, I was looking for Schindler's List, the sword and sorcery version. We had free passes, and we got to order food, so I liked it. My girlfriend hated it, though. She really didn't like it at all. Granted, the movie has some cheesy parts, and parts feel forced, but I still had a good time.

I enjoyed it, sure it was predictable and had a lot of concepts used in other stories, I just wanted to be entertained and got that.
