Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

this weekend I saw 2 movies ..

Machete - was great. Really liked it . . 7/10

The Other Guys - I thought it was horrible. It took so long to finish. I just thought it sucked. And I am FAR from the 'movie critic' guy. I just thought it sucked. Was talking to a friend at work right now and was telling him how I felt about it. He thinks I'm wack now because he loved it. Anyone else here think it sucked and think that Will Ferrel is pretty much very overrated and hasn't done anything good in a long time. .. . 2/10

Overall though, I don't think they're really my thing (aside from The Untold Story, which is an absolutely AWESOME movie), so I'll probably just finish off the top 10, possibly watch Irreversible and Audition, and then stick with normal movies from then on.

Irreversible is a very good movie, you should definitely watch it.

8.5/10

Dark and depressing but a very accurate portrayal of Joy Division and their lead singer Ian Curtis. Produced by his ex-wife and based on her book this film features some great musical re-creations along with a stellar performance from Samantha Morton.

Rob Lowe playing the sax was pretty comical. But you gotta love the badassness of Judd Nelson:

You also gotta admit that the central theme, that the first couple of years out of college suck balls, holds true.

I'll give it an 8/10. We've all seen these Boston gang movies before, but this one kept me entertained throughout. Solid performances by Ruffalo and Hawke. Based on a true story. The movie is based on the director's true life story and he even stars in it. I didn't know till after I researched it.

yeah, I gotta say, I have enjoyed most of the new graphic novel based movies but this was a flub. I could tell it was going to suck from the get go, but I stuck through it. what a waste.

10/10

Fallen Angels is excellent.

'Grown Ups' - 5/10


Just finished watching 'Grown Ups' with the wife.. It was a very bad flick, particularly with the people involved. I mean how do you have so much talent in a movie and not create something funny even my mistake? I blame the director. The tone of the film was so off and the comedic timing was handled so badly. Its not the worse movie Ive seen but it was very bland.

10/10


nice to see another Wong Kar Wai fan on board. Man I have such respect for east asian cinema and auteurs like WKW. I have basically viewed his entire work collection even the ill attempted My Blueberry Nights.

WKW is up there along with Gus Van Sant, David Lynch, Cronenberg, Bertollucci, Mendes, etc as one of my favorite contemporary directors. His use of color, sense of style, poetic dialogues, ability to elicit such great acting, is unparralelled.

My favorite movie from him is Days of Being Wild tho. Have you seen it?

And I would also go g@y for takeshi kaneshiro. Dude is smoking.

EDIT back on topic, The last movie I saw was Star Wars III. I enjoyed it, mostly because of natalie portman.

Never caught it in theaters. I still think the new trilogy gets unnecessary hate. Cinematicaly speaking it's no worse than the original trilogy.

I just watched this last week. I agree with the 8 rating. Was kind of pissed about the ending though.
