Trying to catch up on 2011 movies lately.

So far the best films I've seen this year are:

1. The Tree of Life
2. Source Code
3. Drive

Will have to see Tree of Life because Source Code is still the best I've seen so far. Discussed this earlier in this thread but the scene where Jake Gyllenhaal calls his dad is honestly one of the most gut-wrenching and heartfelt I've seen in years. It was that good.

Tree of life was bad. Had to stop watching 20 mins in. It wasnt even a movie it felt like I was watching a poem. It had a meaning but it was simply boring. It's a good direction for people who like shit like this but in the beginning it went one way then I see dinasaurs and shit I honestyl thought the movie changed and it was purposly merged with a nat geo show. Figured that's how it is.

On the other hand Source Code was a solid flick. Haven't seen Drive yet what's it about I've seen good reviews on it and ratings when is it coming out on blu Ray I might download.

7/10

The movie was a good 8/10 to 9/10 until part of the ending. The very end isn't bad, but what led up to it was kind of blah. Before the ending the movie was great.

I totally agree. I think everyone does.

Sunshine was so damn frustrating because up until that last 1/3 of the movie, I thought was watching a modern sci-fi classic. It had an interesting and new idea. Incredible visuals and a great score. The performances were subtle and it fit perfectly for the kind of mission that these people were going on. Then at some point the filmmakers realized "Holy shit, this won't sell. Add some brainless action NOW!"

Question though. What would've made it a better 1/3 of the movie? More negative happenings with the mission and man striving to save it's own humanity? I don't know. I didn't like the ending, but I'm not sure how they could do the ending.

I don't know either but I'm sure there is a better idea out there than turning the movie into a "monster chase". I felt like I was watching Resident Evil towards the end. I still liked it overall but damn, such massive potential squandered.

I actually thought the ending was tight, I know I'm in the minority though. One of my favorite movies.

I wonder if it's humanly possible to do what they did with the airlock thing when they got blown out into space into the other ship.

It looks like it is possible to a degree.

It looks like the key thing would be hold your breathe and close your eyes and not open your mouth.

Yeah, I remember there was a similar scene in Event Horizon where a dude survived brief exposure. I was thinking bullshit at the time but looked it up and saw it was possible.

I just watched Drive and it's pretty ****ing good! Ryan Gosling was awesome and I never knew that soundtrack can affect a movie so much...

Pi - 8/10

Had a promising start but i was a bit disappointed with how the flow of movie went midway through. A good psychological thriller regardless.
