2012: 5/10

The beginning was pretty entertaining with all of the special effects of the city collapsing and whatnot. The middle was dreadfully boring and hard to get through, but it got slightly more enjoyable towards the end. The overall ridiculousness of some of the things made for some comedy, and every time that rich Russian dude that sounded like a ****in' sea monster talked I couldn't help but laugh. But for the most part, the special effects were the only redeeming quality of the movie.

HOW DOES THE MACHINE WORK?!?! They go in and they go out, then hours later their clone comes out? Does the clone have a conscious like them? Can someone just give me a plot in full detail? I'm a mess
i rented this awhile back dont really remember it too much...

something like its a time machine. You activate it then leave the area. Come back several hours later turn it off go inside for the same amount of hours you activated it for. You then come out at the same time you initially turned it on. The reason why you turn it off and leave the area is so you dont see your double coming out of the box while you are turning it on.

Thats pretty much all I could get from it, the story gets real confusing after awhile. Something about one of the guys starts time traveling before the other one knew about it and made the other guy think he was the first one to time travel. When in reality the other guy has been doing it and is in the process of undoing it....

Alice in Wonderland (2010): 7/10

It was fun, visually stimulating, and not too long.

Aite so I watched The Hurt Locker last night and omg, I don't even know where to start w/this movie!!! Its an AMAZING movie! Like everything about it was sooo good! I recommend everyone watching this movie if you haven't seen it yet, like honestly, it'll change the way you look at things cuz it sure as hell changed the way I look at things. By far the best movie of the year! There's a reason they won like 6 oscars. So yea, I give


The Hurt Locker - 9/10


I would give it 10/10 but nothing's perfect so I can't give it a 10.

I enjoyed the look into the feeling of soldiers on the ground and that aspect. I also enjoyed the effects and filming which i thought were superb.
However there are plenty of instances in the film where i was like WTF!!! and because of that stupidity the overall score was lower for me. had they tinkered the story to not done so many retarded "missions" it would have been very very good
