The hit list - 1/10
One of the worst movies I've ever seen. This movie had the worst acting, possibly. I felt like I was watching nothing.

The next three days - 7/10
This movie was good. I recommend it. It was all about the husband, setting his wife free from a life sentence in jail. The romance between the two wasn't really shown, or why he loves her so much. I don't understand why she attempts to suicide so much. It was a "decent" movie.

If you haven't seen it, get on that ASAP.

I have only heard of it and it's on my list to watch.

Just like Exit Through the Gift Shop I had always been like: okay I gotta watch this. I gotta see it. And then I never got around to it.

How relevant is 'The World At War' still?
I know it might sound like a retarded question, since it's arguably one the greatest docus of all time, but it's been almost 40 years since its been made, surely there must have been some new information or discoveries in all those years.

friends with benefits-
annoyed the shit out of me, the first half was actually about the worst first hal of any film i have seen this year- that includes transformers 3!!!!. kunis and timberlake where both awful and misdirected. niether is decent, niether is likeable, niether have any chracater or screen pressence but what really annoyed me was what the film was going for. it was emptyness once again wrapped up in pseudo cynicism. that knowing irony and cynicism only works if you actually have something to offer, this was on exactly the same level as the films it claimed to be critiquing. ****ing worthless. adding to the shambles, but making it much more palatable where the talent that had somehow been forced into being in this garbage- woody harrelson pops up in fine form as does richard jenkins and patricia clarkson. its like they were just wheeled on to bring some acting and give a sense of credibility to this garbage. this was especially dissapointing to see from director will gluck- who gaves the very solid easy A, which was very enjoyable.
4/10

If you are interested in WWII docs, get Ken Burns' "The War."

Mind-blowing and riveting.

An unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain..... surrounded by heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows....

A small handful of strangers that have survived the night each find their way to a rundown bar, whose gasoline-powered generator and stockpile of food and drink make it the last refuge in a deserted city....... With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself, and only the few remaining light sources can keep them safe. As time begins to run out for them, darkness closes in and they must face the ultimate terror.......

I liked the movie..... but the ending destroyed it from me giving it a high rating...... it gave no answers whatsoever... nothing...

If it had a smart ending that served to answer at least one question, then that could have potentially have made it a good movie.... instead you are left with a huge question mark or question marks.... like everything happened for no reason....

the idea/story was smart but used in a bad way...

RATING - 5.9 out of 10...

I finished watching his documentary on the Civil War and was amazed.
Planned on watching the one you proposed aswell, but I heard it's viewed from/focused on the American side. I would like to, firstly, get a documentary that gets an overview of the total war on all sides and then after that pick up 'The War'.

I read Burns is making 1 on the Vietnam War aswell.

Something Borrowed

Decent little rom-com that had a solid plot and dialogue. Not very original but it was well executed and a fun watch. The main male romantic love interest looks like he could be Tom Cruz's brother.

7/10

Ip Man 7.5/10
Pretty entertaining movie, the storyline was a little dull at times, but the fight scenes (as ridiculous as they were) made up for it in entertainment.

Ip Man 2 7/10
Also enjoyed this, not a whole lot different from the first, less of the up close martial arts fights though. As long as you don't mind reading subtitles, these movies are worth checking out.

Hmmm... Well, if you have any luck and find a doc that is focused on all sides of WWII, let me know, because I'd like to see it.

'The War' is broken down into two aspects of WWII...

1. The impact it had on the soldiers in the actual war. There are stories told by people that were there accompanied by unbelievable video and photographic evidence. I've seen a lot of WWII docs and I had never seen any of this stuff. Apparently, before Burns started his documentary, he spent a year simply collecting never before seen videos and photos from both the government and regular soldiers who had cameras.

2. The impact of the war on the people that were left at home, in the United
States. He focuses on three towns/cities and how they dealt with the atrocities that they were hearing about the war, deaths of local boys, etc.

Thanks for the breakdown.
Can't wait to see all of that footage.

Looks like it's worth a look aswell.

I'll probably end up just watching all 3 documentaries.
