Hmmm I think that's the brilliance of it, but I could see where it's not for everyone. I think the spy/thriller genre is riddled with too many "bad" movies that love to throw tons of action and quick scene changes in there to wow the audience and I must say it works most of the time. Bond movies are like that, but not all of them have been great.

This movie reminds me of a more subtle The Good Shepherd with Matt Damon. If you thought this movie dragged a bit, that one tops it. However, for some reason I loved it. The story developed itself nicely and characters were given equal screen time.

It was very suspenseful, featured solid acting, a great score, and beautiful photography. There was also some humor, and some effective yet understated emotional scenes. One of the best serial killer type movies I've seen in quite some time. Keeper.

Just watched this last night. Pretty good, but got damn, got to me. That bastard. He did most of his damage to the point where the ending was like "fuck". Still enjoyed it much though.

YOu know how some movies just make you think about the concept in detail (not in the movie, but the concept is so interesting that your mind kinda runs with it?). THis movie did that to me.

Funny ass movie. Nothing classic and probably nothing I'd sit through a second time, but the cast in this movie is great and there were a lot of good laughs. If you're just looking for a laugh one night get it at a Redbox or something. Definitely worth checkin out.

8.3/10

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. It's OK, I really liked Michael Douglas and Frank Langella, but the rest of the cast was pretty blah to me. I'd give it 7/10. Can't touch the original, but I wasn't expecting it too.

Predators

I enjoyed it. I'm a mark for most Brody movies though. I'm hoping for a sequel by the way it ended. I rate it: Good

In an interview on the DVD, Ang Lee talks about how sex is an overused medium to get a physical reaction out of the audience, while food is an underused medium for the same purpose. So in this movie he sets out to help counteract this movement by setting out scene after scene of drool-worthy food porn. Seriously, just thinking about the food makes me so hungry. And since food and dining is such a social aspect in Chinese culture it made for an interesting focus point to set this family comedy/drama around. Definitely got a very Woody Allen feel to the movie especially in the final act and would recommend this movie to any of his fans. Ang Lee needs to do more asian-centric movies.

9/10

Why this movie got such outstanding reviews is beyond me. It was certainly entertaining, but I didn't find any aspect of the movie that stood out more than other similar crime/heist movies. It was just very solid overall. Jeremy Renner probably gave the best performance, and I guess he might be pretty good at portraying guys who are a little on-edge and a little crazy. Though Jon Hamm tried too hard to be an asshole cop, didn't come off very genuine.

8/10

Renner can pull off being crazy without being over-the-top and outrageous. There's two types of crazy, the Shining crazy, and what Renner can do.

Right now, the Town is rated higher than Heat. That's ridiculous.
