One of the best action movies I've ever seen. I was happily surprised by the comedy, it was sort of reminiscent of some Jackie Chan moments in which the hero has some 'real' moments.

Great pacing, action was great, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

8.5/10

The Intouchables

After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker.

One of the most charming, heart-warming movies I've ever seen. I dare anyone to watch this movie and not smile or LOL at least once. Chances are you'll have a silly grin on your face most of the way through. The two leads have fantastic chemistry and the dynamics between their characters made it very tough to not be entertained.

Aside from that, this one hits all the right notes. Acting, cinematography, score, etc. are all fantastic. Oh, and also, I just want to say, don't think just because this is French that you won't be able to relate to the humor. The humor here is very universal. Awesome, awesome flick.

10/10

The Hunger Games

8.5/10


I liked it a lot, but some of the scenes were predictable, even though I've never read the book.

BTW, when my girl & I were leaving the theater, a group of 10+ teenagers were walking out in front of us and one of them said, "The book was better." Then they all started agreeing.

I'm all for reading, but you know damn well these kids didn't read the book until they heard about the movie. I'm just saying.

If you liked The Hunger Games, watch Battle Royale, superior in carnal and carnage instincts

I'm assuming that it had to do more with how it was taking Lord of the Flies to another level.

I liked it and would've loved it if the ending was better.

The Grey. great movie. I would rather die in the plane crash, then get attacked by the wolves. Ending was good also. Loved the last song at the end. Been listening to it, for the past 30 minutes.

Shame 8.5/10

Fassbender really delivered on the hype, just an outstanding performance. Mulligan was very impressive too and has just built an outstanding resume of films for such a young actress.

I've only seen Hunger in addition to Shame but I'm a huge fan of McQueen's long shots of dialogue (almost like watching a play), really shows off the talent of the actors. Watching entire conversations in one shot really gives off a different feel.

As for the actual movie, it was a bit over-stylized in parts but overall it was just a well made, uncomfortable sort of movie.
