Half Nelson

7.5/10

Solid movie. Goslin was good and the movie was pretty well crafted but the story was kind of stagnant. It was difficult to actually invest emotionally in the characters.

Agree with the rating, I loved the soundtrack though (Broken Social Scene did the entire thing I think).

Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

Last night i saw The Avengers for the second time and feel pretty comfortable with rating it an 8/10. How anyone can say they know good movies and still go above that is beyond me. Watching it for the second time allowed me to notice one thing i didn't notice the first time; the movie is about 75% action. There is very little suspense, story, and dialog occurring that isn't apart of the action scenes. Where 'The Avengers' earns its worth is with the action, especially the work done with The Hulk.

I think the story/movie was executed as best as anyone could hope for, as it was just long enough to tell the little story it had (and not much more story was necessary) and showcase action. And when it comes to the action, there was a great balance that allowed more than just the Avengers to shine, but even supporting characters like Fury, Coulson, Hill, and even while he appeared too weak to some, i thought Loki was portrayed well as young, naive, and still not sure about why he's filled with all this new found hate. I expect him to appear more formidable in future films.

I have very little to complain about with the movie, because i understand what it's supposed to be; but that doesn't mean its an all-time great film. It's a fun movie, but not a great film. Far too thin and basic to be that. But to truly see why the Avengers shine one should watch X-Men First Class. Everything The Avengers got right is also everything First Class (along with every X movie) got terribly wrong. But i won't turn this into a First Class bash (i've done plenty of that). But when The Avengers was getting rave reviews before its official release, i was pessimistic as i saw the same hype and reviews for First Class, which turned out to be pretty mediocre. I'm happy to say The Avengers deserves its hype, even if it is overrated by most.

Joss Wheden has said his original cut was 3 hours long and most of what was lost was the dialogue, story, and characterization that occurred outside of the main action you seem to miss.

Perhaps a directors cut will be released on BluRay?

rewatched Big Fan today

what a depressing, realistic character profile. Portrays a self deluded loser and the religious zeal of sports fans

patton oswalt is really a under utilized actor puts in a great astute performance

8/10

just rewatched the trailer, yea I can definitely see it being depressing.

Big Fan was pretty depressing too. not in a melodramatic way, but just how bleak and misguided the main character's life was

some other films I saw recently are:

The Skin I live in: Spanish horror film. of the spanish movies I seen I feel like I liked all of them and this one was also quite good. story was a bit convoluted and I had to rewatch scenes to actually understand what was happening. 7/10

Avengers: Surprised it broke all those records I have to say. I enjoyed it and I guess it will appeal to a broad spectrum of people so it's a good party film and will have a lot of repeat viewing. but wouldn't have guessed it would be so popular 7.5/10
