Se7en

10/10

All I can really say is: mind = blown.
I already figured there was going to be a head in the package, and I knew whose it was, but even after it was revealed, I was in awe.
Brilliant ending to a really brilliant movie. It's almost hard to believe this movie is over 15 years old!
The only major thing that gives away its age is the fact that the television screens in the movie flickered and had glares. That's because the cameras of the '90s weren't great at the time and couldn't prevent the flickering/glaring.
Overall, it was an amazing movie. I really felt like I could understand Morgan Freeman's character and his frustrations of living in a big city.
If you've never seen this movie, you should. I highly recommend it.

What could you possibly like about the ending?? That it was sick?? I was totally disgusted by that. It was such a pointless manifest of evil that I do not know. Ruined the movie for me... Just a dirt and mud in the world. Nothing that I put movie on for

The Fall 8.8/10
Very great story, it's about imagistration and free adventures. Liked every bit of it. It's what we're missing these days - just seeing the world through the eyes of the child. And ofcourse the scenery was just outstanding. Good ol summer in sanatory, right!
On the other hand, it was somewhat too light to watch again, and I didn't enjoy it to the fullest because of the eclectic style... of things. It was absolutely magnificent but not that consistent. I grew up playing some computer games that were not as mixed and had a specific single style going on. Same for the books. So that makes me take rate it lower.
A must watch!

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Can't attach a percentage. It's really quite good, but I just feel like reading the book now to explore the questions I have. I don't know that 2 hours was enough to cover the book, because there are so many plotlines that aren't necessarily crucial to the overall arc of the film that would have been awesome to explore. Additionally, the climax is underwhelming just for the fact that the characters haven't had time to be explored properly.

80% maybe?

Villain turned Brad Pitt's character into Wrath after he himself became Envy. Intelligent way to end a movie, though it was disturbing. I already said my mind was blown.
After watching the movie, my wife, brother-in-law & sis-in-law all kept talking about it for 10+ minutes, how it was obvious what was in the box, but even when it was revealed, it made our hearts sink.
That movie was simply genius.
It shows you that even the good can fall from grace; in this case, Brad Pitt's character being the good guy who just wanted to nab this sonofabitch serial killer.

Terrible post. Seven's ending is outstanding, no matter how dark it is

First, I completely agree with you on Se7en.

Second, you reminded me of this: http://www.collegehumor.com/video/61...s-icing-movies

Terrible post? How that makes a post, terrible?

I just wouldn't appreciate being left with that type of "package" at the end of the movie. It's psycho.

It might have been touching for you, it was alienating for me. My mind wasn't blown my guts were wreched.
Dunno

Warrior 9/10 Eventhough the commercials gave you the basic premise of the movie there were still quite a few unexpected moments in the movie. The movie never seemed to drag at a length of 2 hours and 15 mins. Good job by all involved.

Agreed, I watched that recently. Mostly to me it was the ending that really stood out if you ask me, the end of the fight when the music kicks in.. Shit really got to me.

Also, I just watched Sucker Punch

8/10 for me but I think there's a lot of people who would hate this film.
It's all waaay over the top and the acting isn't always brilliant, but the way the story is constructed.. I liked it.
