The new movie, Predators, was a step up from Predator 2 and a huge step up from Alien vs Predator movies. That in itself is satisfying that it was a step in the right direction. And what made it even more satisfying was that the mood of the film was very comparable to the original (the jungle, the music, the progression of the film, the idea of a bunch of bad-asses being picked off, etc.). Was it a great movie? No. But it had plenty in it to satisfy fans of the series and provide some nostalgia.

Never Let Me Go

movie is based on the best selling novel "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro.

It's a love drama story about a love triangle between 2 chics (Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightly) and a dude(Andrew Garfield). It is not your typical dude film, started off at a slow pace, and a good number of holes within the storyline(seems it cut out a lot from the book).

However, the photography was superb, the soundtrack was mesmerizing, the acting was solid, and the overall story line was very well done. It left me thinking about life in general when the movie ended.

If you are a fan of chics with hipster bangs, keira knightley was sporting it throughout the whole movie. damn she looked hot.....


I say this is one of the better movies I've seen in 2010.

9/10

Two recent movies.

Social Network - 7/10, Interesting and smart, but not NEARLY as good as the hype. Overrated. More interesting than good. I also think the acting of the 3 stars is overrated too. It was good, but there's nothing spectacular here.

The Town - 8/10 Well executed. There's no new ground broken here, but its just a well done film. Kudos to Ben Affleck.

The Tortured

Horror|Thriller

Quote:
An upper-middle-class couple's life is destroyed when their only child is kidnapped and killed. Obsessed with revenge, the couple seizes an opportunity to kidnap the killer.
Trailer

Decently entertaining torture-horror flick. There are a few plot inconsistencies, and I could do without all the damn echo-y flashbacks towards the beginning, but it succeeded at making me squirm, which is what these kinds of movies are all about. Pretty convincing looking effects, too. The ending was stupid though. It's like they thought they should add a twist just for the sake of having one. And it wasn't even a clever twist, either.

5/10

Whiteout

mediocre thriller about a killer out in Antarctica with a marshal (KB) that has issues b/c of how her last case went down.

never really built up much tension.

some of the acting is so wooden you have to wonder if the actors were purposely directed to be that way.

i guessed the killer without even thinking hard about it and to be honest he/she was pretty f-ing stupid in the way he/she gets themselves caught.

a complete waste of a solid location for this kind of film.

blah.

C-/D+

Crimes and Misdemeanors

8.6/10

Seriously underrated film, even amongst Woody Allen films.

I really liked that movie, but it certainly wasn't perfect. I say 8/10.
