Glad someone else saw The Beaver and enjoyed it. Gibson nails every one of those crazy guy with suicidal tendencies on the brink roles. Hope he's able to get his Hollywood mojo back, he's got a ton of talent. Jennifer Lawrence was pretty good in it too, even if that sideplot was just really a waste of time. I was thankful for that after seeing her suck in everything besides killing it in Winter's Bone.

The Yes Men Fix the World: 6/10- This was kind of an interesting one. The premise that these guys have doesn't make sense to me. They impersonate people in the business word and represent companies in a way they think the companies should be representing themselves. I'm not sure what they think they're accomplishing except a couple hoaxes, but at the end they interview a couple people who liked what they were doing so maybe I'm just missing the boat.

Here's where I think it breaks down. The movie is entertaining, but not because you're paying attention to what the say. It's entertaining because you're wondering how in the world they aren't getting caught as often. I know of some educational panels that you couldn't just walk into unless you had a pass before hand. How could all of this have happened in this day and age where information is instantaneous. That's what ultimately kept me in the movie. Other than that these guys were boring, and their pranks kinda lame.



Collapse: 7/10- This one is funny. I mean it's not funny, it's actually extremely dark, but what I found to be the most captivating part had nothing to do with the overall message (hint: Doom and gloom).

The whole time I was watching this I wondered just how important this guy thought he was. The way he speaks about his past seemed to me to be like an athlete who talks about their past in a manner that makes you think they weren't actually as important as they think. He also talks a little like that person you'll meet that thinks they know everything. Now I don't want to dismiss him as such, but that's the vibe I get.

So the most captivating moment of the entire film is a moment where he breaks down for a second. Through all the cynicism, through all the doom warnings, it seems to me like this guy has an inflated sense of importance and for a brief second you see into his mind a little more emotionally than the rest of the movie.

Point Blank (1998) 4/10 Bad action movie that looks like an 80s bad action movie. The plot was lame….escaped cons holed up in a mall with hostages while Mickey Rourke whoops a$$. Mickey Rourke was at his steroidal best in this movie….he might’ve spoken about 100 words. Danny Trejo had no conscience as he just randomly blasts people for no reason. I'll give it a 3 for some decent shoot outs and fight scenes.

Hannibal Rising - 6/10

Very decent movie. The movie loses it's gel on the audience towards the middle/ending - /ending part of the movie. The beginning was great, acting, the sole purpose and story line was just genius. This movie could of been great, but just it lost it's gel like I said. Watching it, it made me kind of said "well, we all know what's going to happen next" type of shit. If he was able to be a monster towards everyone, it would of been good. Not just selective people. It showed he had a weak side sparing the guys children. Movie should of been reviewed and remastered in that way.

Another thing I realized, his "aunt" is also his lover. Which is his uncles wife. At one point it was obvious they had something together. They also didn't show what happened between those two, or the investigator. This makes the final grade around a 6/10, having a very in dept beginning but faded middle and ending.

Lol yeh man. The beginning of the movie had me going like it catches your attention do to it being unusual. It just carried off to be one of those regular pay back type of movies.
