Frozen

I really liked this. Not the best movie from a critical standpoint, but as far as sheer enjoyment-factor goes I thought it was pretty rad. It's one of the best survival movies I've seen in a long time.

Good score and competent cinematography too, though the acting was only serviceable. It's good at times, but at others it feels a bit forced. There's also one point where I thought something looked particularly fake, but no big deal really. I've seen some reviews that call it too long, but I thought it was just right, and the amount of exposition helped serve to make you relate to the characters and better put you in their shoes. The movie also did a really good job of building tension, and making you feel unsettled.

The only major problem I had with this was the characters' decision making, which is a common complaint in these kinds of movies, and movies where characters are faced with life-and-death situations anyway. And even though I found myself asking "Why wasn't that one of your first options?"(I thought of it almost immediately, after all) I still really enjoyed this. Also, their situation was perilous enough as-is. They really didn't need to add to it like they did, and it ended up feeling like a cheap trick.

The guy who plays Iceman in the X-Men movies is in this also. That is all.

7.3/10

Yeah Mordum was really nasty, although it didn't affect me nearly as much as Cannibal Holocaust (probably because I saw Cannibal Holocaust when I was 16). I posted a mini-review earlier. I think I gave it a 2/10. I'm going to get Philosophy of a Knife from my friend, but it's 4 hours long which is probably why it's number 1.

Arrow Re: Rate the last movie you watched.



I hadn't seen a feature film in IMAX yet, several nature films and showcase stuff but not a full feature. Figured it was time to dip back in to Pandora. Popped some pineapple marijuana candy and tuned in. Really is a pretty special experience in 3D, the story is well worn and cliche, yeah yeah, the dialogue is out of an 80's movie at times, yeah yeah, but that is a cool looking movie. I'm completely on board the 3D bandwagon, I hope the technology continues to improve and more films really go for it with the 3D like Avatar did. Good fun when it's that emersive. Take me away Calgon, all up out this motherf*cker.



my girlfriend is working on this movie "LOL" (a Mylie Cyruss joint ) with Demi Moore and we got to talking about her. She (girlfriend) is younger than I am by 6 years (rock the cradle motherf*ckaaas) so I am occasionally rattled by her missing out on movies/music/whatever that was standard for kids my age. We were still pretty glazed from the pot candy and I convinced her that St Elmo's Fire was worth watching and if nothing else, one of the most comically stereotypical 80's movies of the... 80's. It's been a long time since I've seen St. Elmo's Fire and I was shocked at how bad it is. I laughed almost every time Emilio Estevez was on the screen, the character is a f*cking psychopath and it's billed as romatic/sweet/vunerable, the acting is priceless. The soundtrack is soul shattering. Movie makes Breakfast Club look like Casablanca. There is something about Ally Sheedy though.

Pretty good, but as the new york times review mentioned some of it was edited quite disjointedly creating a number of scenes that didn't flow well together. I was a little dissapointed by the lack of craftiness on the part of Mesrine but holy shit does he have balls of adamantium.

6/10

Another case of the trailer and commercials hyping this movie up to more than what it really was. Some critics said this was Clooney's best role...i disagree. I thought he was grand in Michael Clayton. This movie dragged on and on and really didn't pick up until the last 20 minutes or so. There's a lot of Clooney staring into space which is typical in his movies (Clayton). So much time is wasted just watching him wake up and start thinking and staring around the room and thinking some more. Very, very, boring movie.

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.

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.

Really enjoyed this movie, a powerful drama. Directed by Ben affleck and starring his brother Casey affleck.

Casey affleck plays a Bostonian private investigator hired by a family to help search for their lost daughter.

8/10

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

Alec: You cannot have the Pretenders' first album! That's mine.
Leslie: I bought it.
Alec: You did not! You can have all the Billy Joels... except The Stranger.
Leslie: I'm taking Thriller and Mahler's ninth.
Alec: Kevin is so fond of Mahler.
Leslie: I moved in with Jules.
Alec: Oh how nice, roomies again... No Springsteen is leaving this house! You can have all the Carly Simons.

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