gf wanted to watch these today...



Brother Bear - 6/10. Liked the spiritual importance as well as the nature in the film, wasn't amazing or anything but good.



Brother Bear 2 - 5/10. Seemed like this was made just to have a sequel, didn't stand out at all.

Rounders - with Matt Damon 8/10 very solid movie will watch it again in the future. Those who know Poker will like it even more, but its very entertaining drama.

Grave Encounters: 4/10. Definitely a do not watch. They spent the entire movie building up suspense (not even very much), to have a really shitty ending. Could not have been more disappointed.

Hobo with a shotgun: 7/10. I enjoyed it. It was a change of pace movie that you don't see every day.

It's a damn good movie. It's a feel good drama with quite a bit of humor. Basic plot of a quadriplegic man and his unlikely assistant. You see their friendship build, it's hopeful, and just flat out works. (Based on a true story as well)

Directed really well, looks great, and Omar Sy was f*cking amazing as the assistant.

I'd recommend checking this out.

Definitely on my to-see list after I caught the preview before Moonrise Kingdom. It's coming to the Indie theater by me, so I'll make sure to catch it then.

The Amazing Spider-Man: 7.5/10

I actually liked this one more than the other spiderman movies, I still don't get why he needed that mechanical device to shoot the web. I thought he was a spider.

The adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension: 6/10- Well I can certainly understand why this is a cult classic. It is an entertaining movie, but you'll never see me praise it. When it drifts into satire it's great, but sometimes you can't tell what it's doing. And when it does drift into satire, well... it's been done better. There just isn't much to say about this one and that's a bummer.

If ever were there a movie that I felt deserved a second crack at it it's this one. A reboot of this I think would work. We've seen sci-fi action/satires work (even 3rd installments of such franchises, following what many believed to be a franchise killing sequel, turn out to work quite well. *Cough* Men in Black *Cough*).

In fact the thing that I got most out of this movie was my brother and I trying to come up with a movie today. Would we reboot the whole thing? Make another 8th Dimension movie? Would we try to do the sequel that they talk about at the end?

I thought about picking the series up in present day. You can get the original cast as winks to the hardcore fans. The gang has split up and gone on to have normal lives while they leave their adventuring in the hands of someone else, my best idea was the kid from the movie. He goes on to be the new Buckaroo, and we pick up with his adventure but something makes it necessary for him to round everyone up again.

Anyway, if you are a sci-fi fan I'd say see this movie just because it's considered a must see. But I personally thought it was okay.

Spider Man originally could not shoot webbing. It was a device of his own creation. Many iterations of Spidey are the same, in fact I believe only a few actually produce webbing in their bodies.

I may be wrong but I had heard that for the other series Raimi and friends felt this would cause too many issues within the movie (would have to take more time to establish Parker as the expert, design and build, having to switch canisters would be awkward pacing, etc.) so they scrapped it for a more straight forward approach in him just shooting web. Plus it made the whole puberty allegory WAAAAAY more obvious.

i hated memoirs of a geisha, total hollywood tourist does japanese culture, about as unauthentic as films get. rob marshall is shockingly inept at everything, probably the director i hate most.

every so often something comes along and shows us the true potential of film as a medium. this was such a film. one of the very best and original pieces of the last few years. everyone has been doing it wrong, goats and trees make for more engaging protagonists than human beings....a total masterpiece.
btw dont worry about not wanting to read subtitles, theres no dialogue in this film, and its all the better for it.
10/10
