Alice In Wonderland: 35%

I just can't help but wonder if I've seen this movie before? Johnny Depp playing Johnny Depp again. Or should I say Captain Jack Sparrow, or Willy Wonka, or Sweeney Todd. They're all the same to me. Very minor differences. And I know someone will not like what I have just said. I don't like Johnny Depp, and this movie wasn't any better.



Edge Of Darkness: N/A

I watched a really old version that I downloaded from many months ago, therefore the audio was terrible and I don't feel like I can give this a subjective review. However, I will say that the Boston accents were pretty spot-on, and I guess you don't realize how annoying you sound until you see it on the big screen. We sound like idiots. I also didn't pay enough attention I guess because I was lost as some points. Who was the fat English guy and what was his purpose? I'm asking because I'll probably never watch this again.



Shutter Island: 84%

This is probably the most reviewed movie in this thread so I'll spare you mine. It was kind of ruined since I was dying to read any spoilers. And like everyone said, it was painfully obvious after a certain point what was going to happen. However, It's still a great movie and I enjoyed it very much. What a great cast, too. Heavyweights.

About Shutter Island's ending:
At one point, I thought "Yeah ok so he's going to end up being a prisoner there this whole time". But then the way they explained it...I don't know I kind of got this image in my head that they were trying to trick him. So I felt bad because I'm seeing him on the steps outside of the thing the next morning and I'm thinking "Wow he really thinks hes crazy now?".

So when the psychiatrist said what are you thinking now? and he said "I gotta get off this rock chuck" and the psychiatrist gave this little look like to the dean guy who was bald. Thats when I thought "Oh shit!" hes actually crazy and then they did the whole flashback thing.


One can't help but ponder the prowess of thine magnets.

fuckin' magnets!

i watched this last week and thought it was decent. about a 7/10. **spoiler in white**He was a mafia guy that was hired to "clean up" the mess, but ended up feeling sympathetic for the guy because he had lost his daughter (this mafia guy had no wife/kids). I think he also had a terminal disease anyway so in the scene where he took out the people that hired him, he asked the guard as he was getting away if he had a family, when he said yes he lowered his gun and the guard shot him dead.


These two are movies i just watched for the first time and im sure almost everyone here has already so i won't go into detail, just rating.

Donnie Brasco 9.5/10
Dog Day Afternoon 10/10

It's a good movie. I had already read "Hagakure" before seeing it, so it was really cool seeing how much of it was in the movie. It may make you want to read that book after seeing the movie.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if he was a government spook or mafia.



Youth In Revolt: 26%

I can't help but think we have another Johnny Depp on our hands. Michael Cera plays Michael Cera in every goddamn movie. I'm not even sure why I wasted my time. It wasn't funny, and the writers should probably put down the thesaurus because no American teenager talks like these did.

I love Watchmen. It obviously is a tad more ambitious artistically. I would rate it slightly above IM2 even though it has more obvious flaws to me personally

Bout to watch "Bronson." The lead supposedly puts in a great performance, though the poster calls it a "Clockwork Orange for the 21st century." Sounds pretty ambitious.
