Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy 4/10. Super boring. That is a rare reason for me to not like a movie. I can usually put up with slow dramas, but but there is no emotion behind any of the characters that drew me in like there is with other slow dramas. Only reason I didn't rate it lower is because I appreciate the cinematography/make up/soundtrack/etc. Shame too, because I really wanted to like this movie and was excited to see it based on its reviews, cast, and trailer.

The Descendants - 6.5/10

Solid movie and great acting by George Clooney. No real redeeming qualities though, definitely worth a watch.

The Cabin in the Woods. Wow. This movie was awesome. It is just exactly what it needed to be. Funny, interesting, and entertaining. I really like the where this movie went. It's original and has a cool story.

9/10.

This movie will surprise a lot of people. It looks terrible. I was shocked that this movie was actually as good as it was.

What's that song?

I went to this movie and left severely disappointed. Don't remember did I rank it or not, but to me it looked an unfinished product. In order to not be the old boring man vs wolves, they tried put some psychology in it, some survival and then some realism (dying), but for some reason I think it's on par with Anaconda or Giant Crocodile or any of that sort. Just not put together for my taste. Plz post song still

Joss Whedon doesn't disappoint.

Saw this last night. Completely agree with this score. Low 90s for me too.

This is a good example of a movie deciding what it wants to be and being it. I could complain about the lack of, or really non-existence, of any character depth. Or the incredibly minimal story arc. But rather than tack on bullshit versions of those things because some hollywood development team thinks they're gonna need it, this Japanese production is allowed to just be what it is. A very simply laid out excuse to go through floor after floor after floor of exquisitely choreographed, and in my view even more importantly, superbly filmed Kung Fu. There's plenty of wide angle work here that lets the audience actually see the incredible work being done. As opposed to the american tendency to chop action sequences up into an incomprehensible montage of sweaty intense faced close ups and gaffer work so it "feels" fast.

They just don't often make stuff like this anymore. It was refreshing in a nostalgic kind of a way.

21 Jump Street

8/10

The two guys in it have pretty good chemistry together. It's a by the numbers, predictable story, but it's very funny, so it gets a pass.

Bully



Not a bad film. One negative about it is there wasn't much depth into the mind of the anatagonist (bully) and more into the protagonist (bullee).

4/5

Inside Man 9/10

Not sure if this is an underrated movie, or if its just not talked about.... but its a great heist/crime/thriller with a notable cast (Clive Owen, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster) and a famed director (Spike Lee)

Check it out if you haven't seen it.
