The first two X-Men movies are X-Men 1, and X-Men 2.
Adrien Brody comes to, all f*cked up with his legs pinned in a wrecked car at the bottom of a hill in the forest. There's a dead guy in the back seat, and another dead guy outside about 15 yards away. No food, no idea where he is, no recollection of who he is. Slim odds of survival.
Similar to flicks like 127 Hours, Frozen, Buried, etc., though not as compelling. Brody's acting is good, but otherwise this is fairly forgettable. If you really like survival type flicks you might like it.
Alright my bro's back at school so now I have days to myself so I'll prob be watchin a lot of stuff.
Today a couple of Independent comedies:
The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Chthulu: 4/10- So this was a weird ass movie. I understand what they were trying to do, and it worked in a couple spots but... overall it was just flat. And their budget made it look a little bit like Power Rangers at times which is weird because the gore effects were actually pretty good. And the acting was so bad at times, but I can't even tell if it was on purpose for laughs or not, that's how bad. I wouldn't recommend unless you have time and nothing better to do.
Calvin Marshall: 5/10- A likeable underdog working against odds to succeed in sports and in doing so in life. Sound familiar? Done a million times before and usually, better. Don't get me wrong this one has a little more heart than others and a not so cheesy ending but there are oddities that are never explained that take me out of the film. The whole pacing of the film bugged me for some reason up until the end.
Saw the 2nd Planet of the Apes (2001) w/Mark Wahlberg. Thought it was all right. Wasn't amazing but wasn't bad either. Its a worth it good one time watch. Story is pretty good, acting is great. I wouldn't give it more than a
Hanna - Wtf. Did. I. Watch. 1/10. Wow. Anyone seen this shit?
Yea I've seen Hanna. Id give it like a 7/10. I enjoyed it, felt for her. Performances were pretty intense. LOVED the mirroring bookends of the beginning and ending. That was a great touch. Direction was impressive to me.
