Let Me In. I loved it although I thought the ending could have been better.
Watched the other night. What a crazy *** movie. Just plain....odd. After about 5 minutes it reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite, and lo and behold, that's the first thing on the top of the movie poster. Not to say there weren't some offensively funny parts, but it was still disturbing to the point of saying, "WTF?" out loud. Many times.
Tillman Story - good documentary on ex-cardinal Pat Tillman. His family is still searching for answers.
Big Fan. Good movie for crazy football fans.
127 hours - 3/5
The rite - 3/5
Princess and the frog - 3/5
That movie was uber depressing...
So far I have seen all the movies nominated for best picture at the oscars except True Grit. The movie I liked the most was The Kings Speech. The story was one I had not heard before but it was told in a very compelling way with great acting, script, sets and directing. I think Colin Firth deserves to win best actor. His performance was sensational. The second best movie for me was Winters Bone because it was such a raw film with interesting plot developments. For best supporting actor it really should be by far Christian Bale in the Fighter because he stole all the scenes and his character was played like it was truly organic. My pick for best Actress would be Annette Benning for the Kids Will Be Alright.
honestly I thought the movie was boring and the actors were kind of phoning it in.
I also watched Fathead as it is now streaming on netflix. Much better movie than Super Size Me.
Salt. Predictable and far fetched but I really enjoyed it. Jolie plays that role very well.
sent from my EVO 4G
Same here. Good movie and I don't even like movies.
Unknown - Well done I thought. Was more of a thriller than an action movie, subdued but still moved at a good pace. I definitely enjoyed it.
I am #4 - Disappointing. I thought this one had good potential, but it was more of a cheesy teen romance than a sci-fi thriller. Far to less using of badass superpowers, far to less of the badass chick, and far to much teenage angst.
Jonah Hex- wasnt that great, just wasnt much to it.
The Other Guys - watched about half of it, took a bathroom break and never finished it. amusing, but not funny.
Due Date, Date Night & Splice.
Saw The Fighter and LOVED it , the texture of the movie and the acting were great. Christian Bale was fabulous.
Saw 127 Hours and thought it was well done but a hard movie ( for me ) to enjoy.
Saw Due Date and liked it , it is what it was , fairly funny , with some real laughs but not a well crafted movie by any means.
Sad witness to the mediocrity of modern Hollywood; they took one of the most purely original characters of the Silver/Bronze Age of comics and turned out garbage.
Hall Pass - I thought it was funny. First half more than the second half. Very raunchy comedy.
Also, watched The Machinist last night for the 1st time. WOW, I was blown away by this movie. I don't know how i never saw this before, been out since 04. Christian Bale is awesome.
I finally saw District 9 a few nights ago. Can't say I didn't thoroughly enjoy it.
Unthinkable - 5/5 I really liked this movie. It's not a well known film I don't think. It stars Samuel L Jackson and it centers on the predicament of torture on terrorists. It was interesting and really made you think, no matter what side of the fence you sit on regarding the issue.
I watched it on netflix. I too found it pretty fascinating. Samuel L jackson is actually a pretty good actor in my book. He did a good job in this movie and also in Resurrecting the Champ.
Watched oceans with my daughter this weekend, the colors and the underwater filming is fantastic.
also saw the american with george clooney, very average movie, had too wait to long for something of interset to happen.
The Adjustment Bureau.
Thought it was solid
The Rite....it sucked balls
are you sure its not called the prepdogg life story?
Def the funniest Owen Wilson movie since Wedding Crashers. Idk what the other main guy's name is but he's got some hilarious scenes. It's only like 90 mins but there's quite a few one-liners and lol parts.
IP MAN 1 & 2. If you are a fan of good martial arts movies you have to see these two parts of a trilogy. The third hasnt come out yet. IP Man is the master who trained Bruce Lee and this is a loose story of his life. Donnie Yen is the lead role and he is probably the next great martial arts actor taking the torch from Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li. Absolutely great movies
Jason Sudeikis from SNL
Despicable Me -- Pretty damn good for a kids movie.
Pretty disappointing. Seth Rogan is really good as the alien, but the rest of the cast does very little. The writing was also way worse than I'd expect for a film like this. The story is just basically a chopped up version of every other alien movie you've seen.
Also saw the Adjustment Bureau.
I swear, the first 20-30 mins had me thinking this would be the best movie I've seen in a long time. Damon completely sells you on his character being a presidential candidate. But after those 20 mins, things go to ****. Basically they throw all these interesting questions at the audience and answer absolutely none of them. Very, very cliche movie which really had no story to tell after what you saw in the previews.
I hate it when Hollywood wastes a good premise or story.
Those two were more of a lack of story than anything else.
Paul is like an updated version of ET (which they openly mention) and The Adjustment Bureau is a cleverly marketed chickflick.
i dunno. seemed pretty marketed as a chick flick to me...
Trust me, it's even more of one than what you're thinking.
And by chickflick I mean pointless for the most part and full of silly rules and other completely unexplained dumb ****.
Watched Battle for LA, I thought I was watching propaganda for the Marines. Really crappy, cheesy film that was a complete letdown; that I couldn't make it through.
Most ironic line "Military command says they've never seen anything attack this way!" (then why not show us?)
Too much black hawk down, not nearly enough aliens, but I stopped watching after 72 minutes...
Hollywood needs to seriously up its game after District 9. Eff this movie right in the a...
Seriously, I think Skyline was better.
I have to agree with everything you said about Adjustment Bureau. It was a complete let down.
I saw that too. If you saw the trailer then just stop there and save your money.
That movie was a big loud waste of time.
Don't forget your hat.
