Really beautiful done film. Firth's performance was fantastic, as I'm sure everyone knows by now. The score was fantastic and set the overall tone and feeling perfectly. The cinematography was good and the writing was very good (it was based off a novel tho right?) The ending sequence caught me a little off gaurd and was one of my favorite parts of the movie, especially the quote about moments of clarity. The movie also makes me want to pick up a Huxley novel.

92/100

rewatched Fantastic Mr. Fox



9/10

Endearing, funny, clever, stylish. Vintage Wes Anderson at his finest. I thought Anderson fallen off a bit with Life Aquatic and Darjeeling but this reinstated my faith in him.

Not a bad movie. A decent take o the reality of virtual reality and how vulnerable many of its users are, not to mention the people who prey on these people. I rate this movie: Good

I return! With like a 4 sentence review of Holy Rollers. Hasidic Jews smuggle in X from Europe, Jesse Eisenberg's the main guy.

First time writer and director (I think), and given that, pretty promising flick. But just really undeveloped, lots of hints at storylines w/o giving you anything but a tease with any of them. Technically it's well enough made (though there are a few needles "film school shots"), but the pacing's fairly poor. I want to like Jesse Eisenberg, I think he's A LOT more than just a Michael Cera look-a-like, but I don't know if it was him not having the chops, the script not delving deep enough, or just too many scenes cut (it's 90 minutes, 120 could make it a lot better), there's a few what should be emotional scenes between him and his extremely devout father (well played btw) that you have no attachment to. Anyway, all in all, it flirts with you, but just leaves your balls blue. I wouldn't tell anyone NOT to watch it, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to just anyone either.

6/10

Oh, and Justin Bartha (the guy on the roof in 95% of The Hangover) is the best actor in the movie as the neighbor of Eisenberg that gets him involved, I was surprised. I hated him in The Hangover, had no idea he had legitimate ability.

I honestly thought Defondor kinda stunk, but my affinity for Woody makes me give it a neutral/positive review.

I didn't really dislike Kick Ass or anything, but it really couldn't decide what it wanted to be. It was like a mix of Watchmen and...I don't know, any other goofy superhero flick with a heavy sucose dose. I don't know anything about the comic so I have no idea if there was a trade off or anything. I thought Hit Girl was great, I'd definitely watch a her and Big Daddy specific flick. They got the R rating anyway, they should've explored Hit Girl instead of letting McLovin's retarded flash in the pan ass dominate the screen time. I don't wanna hate, but I hate that kid.

The first half of Kick-Ass = Great potential to be awesome.

The second of half (which introduced Hit Girl) = Just ruined what had potential. Became mindless action.

Wonder what her story was in the comics. I'm just wondering how her character could possibly have any depth. A 6 year old vigilante isn't exactly ripe for complexity.

Kick Ass was meh in my opinion. They went out of their way to make a "different" type of superhero film but just winded up following the same formula, reluctant and unlikely hs kid becomes a vigilante. I just don't think hte source material was enough to support a great film.

Just saw The Motorcycle Diaries.


8/10 Honestly one of hte most powerful film i seen in a while. Beautiful scenery captured in the principal photography. THe film never seems preachy despite its bildungsroman theme. It captures the core altruism and idealism that framed Guevara's journey and imbues the audience with an emotional understanding of Che's eventual revolutionary aims.

The only similarity between Eisenberg and Cera is there looks. Jesse takes better roles and has real acting chops. Cera knows his place and doesn't delve, which isn't a bad thing. I honestly don't know any serious roles he's had before or will have, but Eisenberg is really the better actor in every facet, however, he's also slightly quirky and can pull off a comedic movie like Zombieland.

As you can see from my homosexual post, I'm a fan of Eisenberg's.

Eisenberg does get a lot of unwarranted hate simply for the way he looks. He definitely has talent. I like most of the stuff that hes produced. He has range and ability. I think most people are making whole impressions out of simply his hair and face.. or specific single movies they've seen.

I don't know a lot of young male actors but he has to be up there right now in his age-group.

Just watched Avatar for the first time



6.6/10

very overrated in my opinion. Big budget, melodramatic, agenda driven, CGI dependent, corny film that's somewhat standard James Cameron affair. I understand its appeal, especially when viewed in big theaters but its artistic merit is not worthy of its praises.

The CGI world was impressive however. Anyone ever played Panzer Dragoon series? The entire world reminded me of that universe.
