Scott Pilgrim vs the World. 8.5/10

Hilarious for people who grew up in the 80's or 90's. References/humor pertaining to gamer culture. Also for fans of Arrested Development and indie type films.



The Expendables 7.5/10

For what it is, it's a pretty fun watch. I wouldn't watch it more than once or twice. But it is what it is and it's cool seeing all the action stars.

Animal Kingdom - 7/10

Very good crime drama from Australia. It's a more realistic portrayal of your typical crime family. Doesn't exaggerate or glorify the criminal life, in fact the realism is almost a bit discomforting. I enjoyed most of the characters, felt like it was the biggest strength of the film. It was hard to completely understand or point out their motivations which gave them more layered and realistic personalities (the grandma was really interesting, might have to watch the film again to understand her character better in case I missed something).

While I enjoyed it, the film had some flaws. The entire premise felt a bit petty or incomplete to me (for a two hour film). Thought it could have benefited from including some key scenes at the end. The acting by the main character was pretty awful. It was poor enough that it got in the way of his character for me. There were also way too many unnecessary slow motion shots too which kinda tilted me throughout.

the expendables- some nice touches but meh, dissapointing 6/10

scott pilgrim vs the world- well, highly irritating try hard (much like whip it, which is of a similar ilk) but not as irritating as the trailer suggests, some nice ideas and certainly funny in places but cera's last effort- youth in revolt- pisses all over this.
7.5/10

Took my younger sisters to see "The Other Guys" on the weekend. Definitely Ferrell's best effort in a looong time and was surprisingly decent. Funny beginning and ending, but a serious laugh-free lull in the middle and as always some of Ferrell's scenes/gags run WAY too long, but overall, not bad.

63%.

Black Death


Quote:
Set during the time of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England, a young monk is tasked with learning the truth about reports of people being brought back to life in a small village.

I expected this to be pretty generic, but it was actually quite good. A group of Christian warriors are tasked by their Bishop to "investigate" a village which has been reported as not being affected by the plague, and being the refuge of "necromancers." They enlist a "Man of God" to guide them there, and thus begins the story.

The film is very authentic feeling, atmospheric, moody, and even creepy at times, with great all-around production values and an effective score. The action that's here is pretty brutal, and doesn't hold back a whole lot, though at the same time it isn't over-the-top. Good acting from all those involved; Sean Bean gives a good performance as usual.

I have a few minor quibbles, but the only thing worth mentioning is the GOD DAMN(no pun intended) SHAKY CAM. From the first scene of the movie I knew that would be the order of the day as far as photography was concerned, but it gets particularly jarring during the action scenes. Some of you might not mind that, but I can't ****ing stand that shit.

7.8/10

The only thing that the film could be blatantly pushing is reincarnation. However, even that is up to ones own interpretation.

So I as well don't know what hes referring to .

Its true, people's scales are pretty unrealistic. I've seen films given a '5' by a poster, who then goes on to say its total sh*t and a terrible movie.

On a scale of 0 to 10, 5 is average people...... Math!!!!

I don't give out a lot of 5s or lower because I can usually tell which movies are terrible without watching them. I think Expendables is the lowest grade I've given out in a while.
