    Default Gemini Man

    Hey everyone. Today I went to see Gemini Man in Dolby 3D and I'm going to tell you what I think about the movie.

    Spoiler: My Thoughts About Gemini Man
    Show
    Today I went to see the movie, Gemini Man. It starting Will Smith as himself and his younger clone. It's about a military man faces his clone. The movie was so boring. I fell asleep for the most part. The action was so boring. It was so anti-climatic. It just wasn't even an interesting movie. This movie is definitely Razzie-worthy. I'll give this movie 1 out of 5 stars for a horrible movie.

    I didn't know that Will Smith does the voice of Mega Man Robot Master. Which Robot Master does he do the voice anyway?

    He doesn't. There's a robot master called Gemini Man in the original Mega Man series.

    Yeah, he has a great track. His stage is a bit weird though. Like, there are robot penguins and what appears to be a frozen wasteland but there's also a deep sea area... with dragonflies floating about?

    Granted they are robots and don't have to fit into an actual biome, but I'm also unclear in how they fit the theme of Gemini.

    I will say, it took me a long while to realize that the giant penguin factory-thingies are Japanese ice shavers.

    I just thought it was crystals instead of ice, since platformers loved having characters slide on ice and there was no sliding. But the ice does make more sense overall, now that my age is in the double digits.

    Is the music better/on par? Because the music is a big part of the experience, and the original series just nailed it on that.

    Oh, dude, the X series has FANTASTIC music! Just from X1, you've got Storm Eagle, Armored Armadillo, Spark Mandrill, the opening stage theme... Good poopnuggets, I love the X soundtrack!

    True, though they also seemed to learn and then forget lessons through the X series. From what I recall, the best designed game was X2.

    The X series has some really great music. Even some of the worse games had quute good music.

    Am I the only one who hates this movie on execution alone? I want to say I haven't see it so I have no idea how good/bad the story is. However it seems to be another film that's biggest strength is it special effects. "Yeah, that's really good digital de-aging!" seems to be what everyone is saying. Like the ability to cast two people that look similar enough and are a few decades apart in terms of age and just having exposition saying one is a younger version of the other is something that's existed since the birth of cinema and is also sufficient. I'm just tired of the over abundance of CGI in films: digital de-aging, motion capturing to completely create a CGI character, green screens. Just make it animated if you have to go to those length.

    No, no. This thread is about Gemini Man. There's another thread for Steven Universe.

    Who's Magic Hat? Are they someone I know? Are they impersonating me? Because as we all know my screen name is Magic_Hat.

    As of this posting, the thread has 18 posts total. 2 of them are about the movie, and 10 are about the Mega Man series.

    Sorry, it's now a Mega Man thread.

    And if you want a full accounting, 6 are "what this thread is about." Which means... Megady-megady-mega mayaaaaaaan!

    So it's kind of like this thread was Mega Man, and it defeated the posters who wanted to talk about Mega Man, and it absorbed their power making it a Mega Man thread.

    But in order for that to make sense this thread would have had to be Mega Man before anyone posted talking about Mega Man. This is a real chicken-and-the-egg situation here.

    No, see, Mega Man killed Gemini man, took his powers, and then those powers resulted in the thread becoming mostly about Megaman instead of Gemini Man, because Mega Man is good, and Gemini Man apparently isn't.

    Come to think of it... Gemini Man was made in the year of 1993 in our world, or 20XX in the continuity of the Megaverse. So with our world now being 2019, wouldn't that mean we are firmly in the 21XX Megaverse time? So wouldn't Gemini Man be a puppet of... Metal Shark Player?

    I wanna be in the timeline with Tron Bonne in it, personally.

    Though there's still plenty of time for 2019 to roll over into 20XX.

    So...there are 11 more signs of the zodiac to go after Gemini. Personally, I'm hoping they all get Will Smith movies where he has to fight a genetically-engineered version of himself thematically linked to their relevant zodiac sign.

    Oh, and here's a great video by Egoraptor on how X's gameplay evolved from the original series while still staying true to its core.

    I know you want to talk about the movie but it seemed excessively bland, and the reviews seem to bear that out. I'm not sure how Will Smith is picking his projects these days (After Earth, Bright, Suicide Squad, and now this) but it may be time for him to switch tactics.

    (Also - the less I say about Benioff the better.)

    Nect should be Scorpio. Will Smith has to fight the Scorpion King who would obviously be played by The Rock.

    Sounds like a fun romp to me.
