Yeah right. Was that ending not f'd up though? Not f'd up as in terrible but sort of f'd up in a dark comedy type of way.

the hurricane. solid 7/10. denzel was really good in it. the makers just took wayyy too many liberties when it came to portraying carter. there was quite a bit of truth bending.

Of course Raj da Dodge gave Just Wright an 8/10.

Black Swan: Second best movie of the year (Inception being #1. So far.)

The Fighter: Very good acting, disappointing fight scenes and soundtrack. 6-7/10

Great movie, saw it a while back. The acting is just great and I really liked the story-line (Hollywood did make parts of it overly dramatic, but still very good). Definitely one of my top 10 boxing movies ever - around 8-9.

Just saw The Social Network. Good acting, good story (they followed the true story of it very closely). Enjoyed watching it too - I thought Jesse Eisenberg was awesome as Zuckerberg and I also liked the guy that played Saverin. I started to hate Sean Parker, he seemed like a greedy prick to me haha. I was slightly impressed by JT's acting; it exceeded my expectations by quite a bit (which says a lot). 8.5/10

Tron: Legacy.

7/10

I enjoyed it, first 3D movie i've ever gone to see. Took me awhile to get used to it, I had trouble focusing on it all to begin with. Storywise it's nothing mind blowing, but it's a fun movie. I liked Jeff Bridges in it, it seems like he was having fun with the entire thing.

Devil - 5.7/10 - Pretty interesting concept. It wasn't well executed however and I was never really captivated at any point. The acting was stale and the cinemtography was very TV drama esque. Worth watching if you're into horror considering how shallow the pool is.

True Grit

"I thought you were gonna say the sun was in your eyes... I mean, YOUR EYE." haha

(Just posted in the True Grit thread)

The minimalist score fit and accentuated the feel. There were no truly superfluous scenes. Jeff Bridges was a f*cking bad ass. My friend and I could understand everything he said, even though I'm sure some people wouldn't.

Hailee Steinfeld was incredible as the 14 year old daughter. Great acting for a real 14 year old girl. She held her own with Bridges/Damon/Brolin for f*cks sakes.

The cinematography and direction were excellent.

The dry humor was great.

Literally the only thing I have to complain about is the CGI. I'll forgive the CGI in the town to give it depth and as some snow (if I'm not mistaken during an early scene)... But the snakes and some blood splatter CGI although minimal, was weak as hell. It could've easily been done with real props.

It wasn't No Country for Old Men (which I would rate a 9.2), but I'd give it an 8.8.

Tomorrow, When the War Began

Trailer

Pretty good Australian flick in the vein of Red Dawn. Australia is invaded by some nameless Asian force, and a group of very attractive teenagers first elude capture and survive, then later fight back. Fairly entertaining with quite a lot of action.

6.7/10

Leaves of Grass

Trailer

Really fun movie, it's a shame it's flown so far under the radar. Yeah, it has its flaws, but I still really enjoyed it. A great performance from Norton especially considering he's playing two completely different characters with different accents and whatnot.

7.5
