Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

Avatar: A trite story rife with platitudes. The incandescent special effects carried the film. I wouldn't watch it again unless forced.

5/10 (due to marvelous special effects; the sequels will be disasters)

American Gangster: Based upon a true story, so it's graded differently. Denzel was sensational, as always. The decision to implement a soul/70s soundtrack in lieu of Jay-Z was a superb one. The veracity of the movie was solid. Given that storyline, I can't imagine it being much better.

7/10

Collateral: Very solid 3/4s of a movie. Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise are in prime form. The storyline is a tad predictable, but it's solid nonetheless. The ending leaves a lot to be desired.

6/10
