Oldboy [first viewing]: my initial reaction is about a 7.5-8/10 but i'd like to watch it a second time before i really decide on it

the Innkeepers [first viewing]: 9/10

I had absolutely no expectations for this whatsoever. I randomly saw it on IPT for download, looked up the RT score and it was high. Didn't even bother to read a synopsis, I just knew it was a horror movie. Well, what a very pleasant surprise.

It has such a throwback, 80's, kind of goofy Ghostbusters feel to it during the first half and then it successfully transitions to legitimate horror in the second.

The lead, Sara Paxton is a dime and only the 2-3 blonde I've ever been attracted to

That was one of the few Bogart movies I didn't really like that much. Considering the talent (Bogart, Hepburn) and the director (Huston), it's very disappointing imo. I saw it a really long time ago so don't remember what specific issues I had with it, but I think I found it too "campy", plot too be really weak, just remember a lot of moments where I was rolling my eyes. It was still entertaining (I checked and see I gave it a 6 on IMDB so not like it was bad), but I don't think it deserves to be listed as a classic. I love Casablanca too btw, 10/10. You should check out The Maltese Falcon. Or a better Huston-Bogart collaboration in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Captain America: The First Avenger: 8/10- First of lemme say this: Tommy Lee Jones completely steals the show in every scene he's in.

Okay that out of the way I was pleasantly surprised. Chris Evans turned out to be pretty good in this role. It played more like a period piece than anything.

Some of the effects left a bit to be desired, which was weird, but all in all it was a visual impressive movie. Cap is an interesting character because he's really always fighting above his head, and that is the whole point of his personality. He never gives in, and always does what he feels is right.

I'm curious about a few things, maybe to be answered in a second movie. Like why they did Bucky that way, are they setting up a Winter Soldier saga?

Anyway I think the best movie of the titles they released to tie into the Avengers (not counting Iron Man, but Iron Man II, Thor, both Hulks...) And that very much surprises me. Maybe that's why I liked it so muuch, I wasn't expecting it.

WTF, they remade The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? The movie is only about a year or two old. I was wondering why i suddenly saw all these people saying they just watched it (as if it were new).

"Tightrope." Clint's a perverted detective on the trail of a serial killer who kills his whores. Even Clint-as-cop doesn't save this one. Might work with a fresh workover, but nothing to write home about. 65%.

You working on that DVD set already? I've always had the Eiger Sanction in my back of my mind but never get around to it.

Oh shit man! Can't wait to hear what you say about that one. I will likely see another movie by the end of the month and it will likely be Red Tails but I lean towards this one a lot right now.

Awful pacing, awful ending. One of the longest 1 hr 40 min movies I've ever seen. Avoid.

I just watched this too. Just turrible. Not to mention Hathaway's accent switches constantly all movie. Brutal job overall. Turrible movie.

I loved the Swedish movie, but the English movie might be just as good. Mara, who plays Lisbeth, does an amazing job. You should do yourself a favour and go see it.

Yeah I couldn't tell if they were supposed to be Irish or English or both with some Scottish thrown in.

Watched it for family time over the holidays; my father, who is British, was saying her accent was switching between Northern English (which sounds Scottish to me?), London, Irish, etc. I may not have been able to place where the accents were coming from in the UK, but I knew it was wrong. My sister and I were laughing the entire time about it, but once I start a movie I like to finish it no matter how bad (exceptions: Idiocracy and In the Name of the King).

The last one Hathaway was in, or the last one I saw that she was in before this one, was a horrible movie to me, too - Love and Other Drugs. Some people loved it, but it was, to me, the same as this one. Extremely boring. Good thing they didn't have to fake accents again.
