Into the Wild - 10/10
Holy shit. Watch this.
lol @ Night at the Musuem
I swear it was a good movie! I was excited upon the time I posted it, but I admit maybe an 8 or 8.5.
I still say it was a good movie.
Paycheck - 4.5/10
It had a decent premise, some alright action, however, Ben Affleck's acting is shit. Ruined the movie for me.
RAMBO 1V - 8/10
Rambo back to it`s best.
Agreed. Best adventure type movie I've seen.
Juno: 10/10 I haven't laughed that hard since Borat.
Mulholland Drive - █ / ╥
Honestly, most confused I've been since I first saw 4Chan.
Sunshine - 4/10...
Um... the special effects were nice? Other than that, jesus christ... the only somewhat good part of the whole movie was when they first got to Icarus I... and then the last half hour.
So boring! I was led to believe it'd be a lot freakier than it was.
The subliminal pictures were the only 'freaky' things I saw.
Not to mention that the plot was retarded. I mean come on, the sun dying in 50 years? Trying to reignite a giant ball of gas? What?
Event Horizon was better as far as sci-fi horror goes.
Shoot Em' Up- 9.5/10
No Country for Old Men 9.5/10.
Vintage Coen brothers. Their best movie imo. Great script, great pacing, and great dialogue. The only reason it isn't a perfect 10 for me:
I didn't mind the mindfukc bad ending. I actually liked it. The reason is this:
The scene where the Sheriff checks the room Llewelyn was killed in could have done with a short shot of Chigurh actually holding the bag of money. He was probably carrying the bag because he got the money in the novel the movie was based on (at least that's what people on the IMDB boards are telling me). I kinda figured it out myself, but the script could have done with just a tiny bit more closure on that part imho.
Great acting too. Javier Bardem is the best villain I have seen since Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs. What a role. He does restrained pure evil so well. Josh Brolin was a real suprise for me. This is without a doubt his best role yet. I wonder what he will be like in the Bush movie Oliver Stone is shooting. And I am a big Tommy Lee Jones fan, so he can do no wrong in my eyes. Thank god for Dutch subtitles tho; his Texan accent was quite hard to understand.
All in all, great movie. Go see it.
That said it all. Subtle but clear enough, for me at least. Besides, Chigurh doesn't seem like the kind of person that wouldn't live up to his word. After all, he did say he'd kill her, if Llewelyn didn't accept his proposal.
The Hoax 9/10
Very good performances with an very interesting story. Definite recommendation. Seriously. Watch this.
Edit: lol Shamrock I remember you were totally flippin' out on chat after you watched that
Into the Wild - 10/10. Awesome on so many levels. Made me want to run away into the wilderness and find myself. Also the soundtrack was supreme; maybe the best I've ever heard.
Bender's Big Score - 8/10
Mimic - 7.2/10...
Family Guy - Blue Harvest - 6/10...
Could've been so... so much better.
Diary of the Dead - Goddammit, George Romero/10
If George Romero was trying to make a shitty student film, he succeeded. If he was trying to give some unknowns their shot, he did it. If he was trying to make a good movie, he failed. Horribly.
As someone who actually really liked Land of the Dead, despite the more intelligent zombies, I was hoping this would be good. The concept was nice. Well, when I thought it wasmore Cloverfield\Blair Witch-esque and not a student film. This looks and feels like it was done in Final Cut Pro by a college film major. That's the point, I know, but it's also a serious knock against the film.
The acting is sub-par. I don't think it's entirely their fault, though. The direction was poor and it seemed like many scenes only had one take, which really hurts the film. About the only actor I liked was the one main black character in charge of a small militia-type group. He was the only one who really seemed to be acting rather than trying to act, like everyone else.
And then there are the film's "messages." Romero, we f*cking get it. Seriously. I'm not a f*cking moron. Everyone who was a moron was just laughing at the film, while I was cringing.
I think my girlfriend put it best when talking about a specific scene in the movie where the line "Don't mess with Texas" is used - "I was already nauseous, but when I heard that I threw up in my mouth a little bit." Well put, I say.
gone baby gone
Be Kind Rewind Oh dear Jack Black/10
Funny in places admitadly, but just..meh. Didnt really expect anything decent really if im honest. Unfortunately, the trailer(s) show the best bits. Just watch the trailer instead of the movie really :S
No Country For Old Men - 7.wtf/10
Good, but overrated. I most likely didn't get the message as well.
The Boondock Saints - 9/10
Sweet movie. Had a great time watching it.
Vantage Point 9.3/10
Forest Whitaker and Dennis Quaid are my new heroes
John Rambo - 6/10
Exactly what I expected: Explosions and people's heads blowing up tied together by badly-acted, badly-written dialogue.
Been looking forward to that.
The Number 23 - 6/10
Not bad by any means, just nothing spectacular. I didn't care much for the shitty ending either.
The Number 23 - 8/10
I didn't expect much but I ended up really enjoying it, made you think a lot and I love Jim Carrey in whatever role lol.
Saturday night in with Sky movies?
I thought the number 23 sucked 4/10
My mate had to babysit so he dragged me around for company, we ended up watching it lol.
Ray - 10/10...
Awesome, Jamie Foxx wins.
I still think Ray is way better than Walk the Line was.
No Country For Old Men - 9/10
Still a great movie. Coen brothers demonstrated some serious mastery. Any fallibility concerning the movie can be derived from the book as well (the weird ass ending).
I Am Legend - 7/10
Seeing this for the second time, it cements my opinion that this movie is essentially the result of Hollywood throwing way too much money at a film with potential to be cool but too bastardized by popular cinema to really have the opportunity to be, so instead the CG artists and whatnot just went wild with making NYC look decrepit. And succeeded.
The Truman Show - 10/10
I'm going to watch again soon. I really loved it.
I should have watched this earlier... I have watched it 10 years after it's release...
I love that movie.
I can't really judge as I knew a lot more about Johnny Cash than Ray Charles.
I loved Walk the Line immensely, but it felt like rushed way too much, if it had presented itself like Ray it would've been a lot better.
Donnie Darko : 9.9 / 10
Plz don't read this, If you haven't seen the movie! OR it will just ruin the whole enjoyment!
I found this nice article while googling "THE PHILOSOPHY OF TIME TRAVEL" don't assume as a review of the movie but a nice explanation of the characters and how the are related to the book.(THE PHILOSOPHY OF TIME TRAVEL)
Thought just copy and paste this for those who are still confuse about the movie.
Excellent movie. Jim Carrey is the shit.
Juno - 8 / 10
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Good old (1964) Movie
Juno - 8/10
Very good movie.
Into The Wild - 8.5/10
I think it's a bit too slow at parts, but the latter half really picks up, both pace-wise and emotionally. Very haunting at times, and Emile Hirsch was fantastic. It took some time after seeing it for a lot of the film to sink in. Then just yesterday it finally hit me. I think I'll go see it again.
Once - 8.5/10
Fantastic Irish independent film, about an Irish busker and Czech immigrant who meet on the streets of Dublin and decide to make music together. Fantastic film with brilliant music.
Beowulf - 8/10...
Really enjoyed it, great CGI work... Robert Zemeckis is on a roll with great CGI flicks.
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - 7.1/10...
Could've been so... so much better, but it was still a fun movie to watch.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence - 9.2/10
A revisit to one of Spielberg's most thought-provoking efforts. It's a beautiful collaboration of two acknowledged masters. Both Jude Law and Haley Joel Osment give great performances as the robots on a quest to enable Osment to become a "real boy". Frances O'Connor deserves a nod as well. I bawled like a little boy.
I encourage everyone to see this.
The Cable Guy - 10/10
Funniest Jim Carey film ever imo.
I laughed so hard when he was doing the music.
