Up in the Air - 7/10
This turned out better than I expected and I didn't see the ending happening like that.

Kick-ass - 7/10
Thought there would be more comedy but there was nice action and a decent plot.

Rocket Science - 6.5/10
I liked the plot and everything but for some reason I never saw a Eureka moment that I was expecting. Kid never even delivered a whole argument. Not my cup of tea.

Hot tub time Machine - 8/10
Way better than I expected. Some great comedy, simple plot but it worked for me. The type of movie you can just kick back and relax to watch.

She's out of my League - 5/10
It had promise but it was way too predictable for me. +5 for the super hot chick.

Date Night - 7/10
I thought this was another romance movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Some really funny moments, solid ending.

The A-Team - 6/10
Rampage was a bad Mr. T knock off. But an OK comedy, nothing special. I wonder if there's a sequel?

I just watched the Hidden Fortress on DVD again tonight. Haven't watched it in well over 5 years. Loved it the first time seeing it, now love it even more.

10/10 ratings from me. Personally, I think it's the best Kurosawa film but it's underrated by the general masses.

"The usual suspects"

Its an old movie (1995) but somehow I hadn't seen it before. Really enjoyed it. I'll give it 8/10.

Inception - 8/10

A movie I would definitely recommend, but a lot of people are overrating the shit out of it. It was a good movie, yeah, but it's not this extremely deep, confusing plot that it's made out to be. The ending was good, and for once, Ellen Page was tolerable!

I'd say I got my $8 worth. Wouldn't mind seeing it again, either.

i've streamed enough movies like this on netflix for it to have created a "Gory Foreign Horror Movie" category for me. thankfully it generated this movie because it was awesome!

i'm a big fan of movies that feature lost appendages being replaced by guns, chainsaws, and various other weaponry and there was no shortage of such subject matter here. plenty of disturbing yakuza style violence, blood spurts, and twisted tongue in cheek humor. most everything i'm looking for in a film.

9/10

I had dismissed this movie for years, despite featuring Kris. Man, was I an idiot. Really a very solid movie all around. Good character development and relatable situations.

Id say 8/10 overall. But if people are giving Machine Girl 9/10 I dont know what ratings even mean anymore.

Don't rate movies based on what others think. You should rate them as if you live in a bubble.[/quote]
sure, but a 9/10 means that the machine girl is one of the best movies of all time in his opinion. That is shocking to me, even accounting for differences in taste.

Surrogates - 5/10


A repeated concept that works well if not done for the big screen, rather a TV show. I am late is realizing that TV programming nowadays is by far better than what Hollywood produces for the big screen.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

C+


hmm.... I do not care for the retconning going on in the X-Men series. Why the hell were Cyclops, Storm and Toad shoehorned into this? Why would they not remember the man with the metal claws? None of the kids he saves remember him when Xavier welcomes him in? Couldn't they at least have made Sabertooth blond so he matches better in X1? I don't like what they did with Deadpool, especially when Ryan Reynolds is a good choice for the merc with a mouth.

Some of the special effects were painfully bad. Why the hell do Wolverines claws look like such ass? They looked more like the singing sword from Roger Rabbit than they did his claws from the first flick.

will.i.am was completely useless and is devoid of acting talent. I have no clue how he was cast in this.

The action scenes were ok but they were about as lifeless as the ones in X3. The final confrontation was meh. For some reason, it feels going into Wolverines backstory makes him a bit less interesting.

On the plus side, Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber were pretty good. Its just too bad the script was mindless.

i rated a movie highly that i enjoyed because i'm a big fan of the genre and i thought the movie excelled in terms of direction, plot, and general over the top creative violence. it had elements of takashi miike's gozu and robert rodriguez's planet terror. both stand out movies imho that i can't get enough of.

i saw inception last saturday and it was pretty sweet, but i was more into machine girl. personal preference. i'll remember and revere the sushi/finger scene long after i've forgotten about the zero gravity hotel hallway.

doesn't mean my taste is any better or worse than anyone's or that i don't understand how the numbers 0-10 work :rollseyes:. just means i have my own subjective taste.

sure, and from your perspective, the machine girl is one of the best movies you have ever seen? Not questioning your taste/judgment, just genuinely surprised.
