If they'd armed the Dorothy as soon as they started the chase (like they do all the other times) then this movie would have been a lot shorter. But then again Bill and Jo might not have gotten back together...

What an absolute piece of shit and really poor ending to a series that really was never as good as people made it out to be

I loved Lost. I was one of the eejits who got up at 3am to watch the finale, which I liked :oops:

Hunger games. The first one was ok. That Hemsworth just had a goofy grin and the acting was awful. It ws ok if you wanted a Disney version of Battle Royale. Part deux was the same as part one but not as exciting.
Mockinjay part one was 3 hours of nothing. Part two was really long on the boring bits then when something did happen they squashed it all into about 3 minutes. I just didn't get it, but I understand I'm hardly the demographic. This was the first film in a long time I'd paid to see On Demand and wanted to just turn off.

Funnily enough my favourite of all the YA adaptations is probably The Maze Runner ones and they are the ones that lambasted the most so what do I know (please don't answer what I know)

So the terminator is killing the Sarah's by the phone book order. The police are really worried so they ring her again and again. Why don't they just Ho round to her apartment?

Are you crazy? If they go there they might run into that killing machine making the rounds. That's the last place they should go

So to stop him from fighting properly they raped his girlfriend, stabbed his bosses dog and kidnapped his disabled brother. This is a lot harsher than I remember!

Good thing the didn't rape his boss, stab his brother's girlfriend and kidnap his disabled dog. That would have been the last straw!

This reminds me of "I say we stomp him! Then we tattoo him! Then we hang him! And then we kill him!"

Big, stupid and awesome- is there anything more modern American than the Fast and Furious movies? That's before you even take into account their complete disregard for collateral damage, science and laws while ultimately end up doing some good and maintaining a strong sense of family above all else.

I saw The Hitman's Bodyguard the other night and noted something unusually stupid near the beginning. When the Belarussian guy whose family was killed in front of him by Gary Oldman's character is giving evidence at The Hague, Gary Oldman's defense attorney objects to the evidence because it's just "hearsay". As I see it, the guy is giving direct evidence of what he saw - an eyewitness account. That's clearly not hearsay. Any lawyers out there that can confirm my thought. If there aren't any lawyers, anybody who has recently stayed at a Holiday Inn Express?

I noticed that too, and agree with you, but I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express recently.

It was April of this year. Is that recent enough? I agree!

Apparently someone else agrees with us on IMDb. From the "Goofs" page under "Factual Errors":
Someone on IMDb wrote:
When Professor Asimov testified at the trial that Dukhovich killed his wife and child, Dukhovich's attorney objected that this was hearsay and the court granted the objection and excluded the testimony. The testimony was not hearsay. Hearsay is testifying about what someone else said happened. Asimov was testifying about events that he directly witnessed and the testimony should have been allowed.

From www.hse.gov.uk

Hearsay
15. The general rule is that any statement, other than one made by a witness while giving evidence in the proceedings, is inadmissible as evidence of the facts stated. However, this rule only applies if the statement is given as evidence of the truth of its contents. The rule applies to both oral and written statements. The main reason for the rule is that there is otherwise no opportunity to test whether the person that made the original statement is telling the truth.

Pretty sure US rules basically follow British Common Law, so the same would apply here.

Does the World Court follow these rules as well?

Maybe in TH'sB 2 they'll clear this up by mentioning the court members had been bribed to rule incorrectly :tongue:

I believe this is the least accessible film I have ever seen in a theater. Who is this for? Who leaves this thinking they had a good time or really saw something special?
