Wow what a movie. like someone mentioned above you dont want the movie to end but it does. a solid 9/10 for me. viggo is really starting to grow on me as an actor. first eastern promises, now this. its a pretty sad and depressing film but in the end it leaves you with hope. i wish the world never ends up like this. although they never explained why the world became like that, i think it was perfect that they didnt explain it. otherwise people will focus on the apocalyptic events rather then what the movie truly means.

Let me preface this by saying- I was getting pretty tired of seeing Michael Cera play the same awkward, bumbling social reject (ie, himself) in coming-of-age films. But this was a pretty entertaining, off-the-beaten-path teenage sex romp movie. The dual personality angle was refreshing, finally got to see Cera attempt to act and not just read lines as himself.

My major problems with the movie are 1) The dialogue was completely pretentious and unbelievable, it was like Dawson's Creek all over again with horny teenagers citing Albert Camus, reciting French poems, and generally speaking as if it were a Shakespearean play 2) Steve Buscemi went to waste in this one, real shame.

Overall it's a fun, original flick.

7/10

And Francois is my n*gga

Last 3 movies I watched were "The Road", "Sherlock Holmes" and "Brothers". Sherlock Holmes was crappy quality, but a solid, entertaining flick as I expected it to be, but wow these other two movies. Couldn't find a more depressing pair of movies that I didn't know much about before watching them. Both make you sit back and think for a bit about different things.

8.5/10, 8/10 and 7.5/10 respectively for the three listed above

Captains Courageous - 7/10

One of the few Kipling books I didn't read growing up (he was my favorite). If I read the book before, I probably would have enjoyed it more. Still really liked it mainly because it was shot on location which is very rare for a movie like this in the 30s. Some of the shots of the ship in the ocean are insane, it's tilting more than 45 degrees, not sure if that's standard practice though. Good movie but like I said, you either need to watch it when you were young or have loved the novel as a kid to really become attached to it (this was actually my grandfathers favorite movie growing up, that's how I found out about it).

Arrow Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

did a double feature (theater hop) this afternoon



Daybreakers



Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus


both had really compelling previews but haven't had great reviews. It was a good day to pop some pineapple cannabis candy and theater hop a double feature. No major complaints on either, though no sterling reviews either. Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe in a sci-fi about vampires seemed like a recipe for success but there wasn't anything original or noteworthy in the story, it was stylistic and had a few cool stunts and effects. One of those movies where you never end up caring much about the characters, some cliche themes in their relationships and some well worn plot points made this an easy-to-swallow, candy-coated popcorn movie probably best saved for DVD.
I had higher expectations for Dr Parnassus and while it was certainly much more original, it didn't blow me away. I think Brazil is brilliant and I really like Terry Gilliam's out-there surreal style but sometimes his stuff is just weird for the sake of weird (not necessarily a bad thing), it felt like a more complicated story was being rushed through at times. Crazy cast, they did a good job (Heath Ledger was sharp, shame), and I was thoroughly entertained throughout, just didn't blow my hair back.

Old Boy

This is a really weird movie. The story is definitely about a subject that not a lot of films delve into. When they finally show you what everything is about, you're just sitting there going, what the ****..seriously? It's a little disturbing, but I won't say what it is because it pretty much spoils the movie. The premise is about a guy getting locked up for 15 years then being released and trying to get revenge, but it just gets weird as hell. Watch it, you'll see what I'm talking about.

I don't even know what to rate this movie. Probably somewhere in the 70-85 range for me.
