The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
I know I know, the original is a classic "horror" flick, while the sequel is a classic "action" flick. But now that Prometheus is coming out, I thought it would be a good idea to compare the two. Which one is better & why?
Since we already have multiple threads asking this same question I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread. Let's try to have original discussions or at least ones that don't just ask "movie X or movie Y?".
