Yes and for that reason, plus the fact that they pretty much remained somewhat faithful to the comic, I'm bumping my rating up to an 8.75

Viggo was brilliant in Eastern Promises. His performance alone is what probably brings the hype for that movie from critics. I just found it somewhat boring and uninteresting at times. Still, I liked the movie overall.

Nicolas Cage has been one of my favorite actors since I was younger, so maybe I overrate Bangkok Dangerous, but I really liked it. Cage has fell off big time and BD was refreshing. I honestly liked it enough to buy it.

I just walked in from Adventureland. It was alright. A well done coming of age period piece from the 80s. There isn't any real big laughs in it, which will probably hurt it in a lot of people's eyes seeing as it's being billed as the movie from the guy who did Superbad. It's got a real sweet side, and still shows some of the nasty underbelly of suburban life. But it doesn't do anything that hasn't been done a bunch of times before.

That Eisenberg kid must have been bumped up from Micheal Cera's set double.

I probably am being overly kind in my initial reaction because of how much I like Kristen Stewart. I had a similar reaction to Juno last year but it faded after a while.
And Kristen Stewart is gorgeous too. She's a dead nuts ringer for a young Alicia Silverstone, who for a guy my age means something.

Operation Valkyrie


7.5/10

Intense movie, had some really good parts. A sad ending, when everyone in the German Resistance is executed..

Ehh. I guess it was a good movie.

Defiance. I liked it better than the reviews it got. Nothing special. Not the most in depth character development. lol

But it was entertaining and the two chicks in it are hooootttt.

Awesome movie. Brilliantly shot and directed by Darren Afronsky - you can actually see many techniques he would later use in Requiem for a Dream (like the quick shot drug/eye dilation scenes). Of course, I'm a math major, so I can really relate to the type of mind it portrays, but I think you do not need to have much knowledge about math to enjoy it.

By the way, can someone get back to me on the ending. I am a little confused if it is meant to be taken as reality or transcendence. I think it may be open to interpretation.

That's playing at the 3 dollar theater, I need to check that movie out. Everyone I hear talking about Slumdog has given it high praise.

Definitely a cult classic with punks in the 80's.

monsters vs. aliens. 7/10.

we lost about 12-13 minutes of the movie thanks to technical difficulties (sound too low, then off, then no pic) during a crucial part of the story, but got free movie passes in the end.
