Befoer the devil knows your dead.

6/10
Not great and far less than I had hoped. I am having a hard time pinpointing what was wrong with it. It just sort of plods along. The acting is fine, but I think the actors may have been miscast. Marisa Tomei getting buck naked in it was worth a point so call it 5/10 and 6/10 if Marisa does it for ya.

Sounds to me like the bigger problem was you. Maybe you should stick to V for Vendetta or something.

man, i had so many people telling me how incredible this movie was and I hated it. It just made me feel lousy to watch these miserable ass holes go through this horrible midadventure, I didn't care about any of them. I thought it was uninspired and I'm not going to give it credit just because PSH is so good at playing dark roles.

Maybe the other people are right and the problem is with you.

hahaha, you're probably right. I love the cast, it just didn't do it for me.

moving on...



I am awfully forgiving of popcorn blockbusters but I didn't like Wolverine very much. I didn't read the comics, I don't know the back story, I did watch the cartoon though, and Gambit, who was my favorite character in the cartoon, was not good in the movie. First off they got the pretty boy from Friday Night Lights to play him, I couldn't tell if he was even trying to do the creole accent but he sucks if he was. The character was also just completely pointless to the story. My buddy who's a comic book head was saying how it was better than the x-men movies and was one of the better summer movies this year but I didn't get into it at all, i greatly preferred star trek and even terminator to this. I have a hard time taking Huge (hugh jackman) seriously, but even with that I thought it was sort of a generic action movie with weak/formulaic story, visuals, direction, and performances.

I enjoyed it but the end really annoyed me.
3+ hours and it ends like that?

Girlfight combines two of my favorite things, broads and boxing. It made me want to get back in the gym. This movie was very well done. The story was top notch. The lead was angst ridden, but not whiny, tough but not cold. The ending was done very well.

Surrogates: 4/10

The movie had an interesting concept, but very poor unbelievable implementation of that concept. This is not even a very convincing version of the future, besides Surrogates there does not seem to be any other significant technological differences between our world and the world presented here.

The plot of this movie is total garbage, the action scenes are not very convincing.

Predictably the whole movie turns into a moral story about how we shouldn't rely so heavily on technology, except a real good reason for why people shouldn't use Surrogates is never presented, other than there is suddenly a weapon that kill a surrogate operator, only a handful of people are actually killed this way. Therefore this movie seems very technophobic to me. The people who are against Surrogates seem to be crazed zealots, including Bruce Willis who just flips out and becomes extraordinarily hateful of surrogates for no apparent reason.

The end of the movie is the greatest ****storm of all, and spoilers in white...

Bruce Willis saves humanity from a virus that will destroy every Surrogate robot and kill everyone connected to them. After he saves all the people he has the choice of whether or not to save the surrogates and chooses to destroy every surrogate in the whole world. However, since everybody loved living through their surrogate so much, what would prevent people from just making them again?

This was a rather frustrating documentary to watch. Whenever I see companies blatantly put short term goals before the longterm health of their companies, and the US economy I cringe. It is also distressing to see a huge opportunity blown by California and GM. The hybrid stage of automobiles was effectively skipped, but other interests mainly from the oil lobby and the car parts manufacturers killed what could have been a great leap foward for American technology. Other nations, most notably China, are already making plans to skip the hybrid stage of cars, and roll fully into the no emmission electric car stage.
