Boogie Nights. Second time seeing it and I actually enjoyed it a bit more than the first go around. Still thought the end dragged on for a bit too long, but the beginning is very funny. Give it a solid 7.5/10.
There Will Be Blood - 10/10. I have never seen a film like this before, DDL puts on quite possibly the greatest performance I have seen to date. The entire screenplay, cinematography, score were brilliant. Can't even wrap my head around this one for now, just amazing.
did this movie have a bowling scene? if so, that was good.
8/10. "A Westerner finds refuge with a group of women in a church during Japan's rape of Nanking in 1937. Posing as a priest, he attempts to lead the women to safety."
Really enjoyed this one. Besides the young girls in the convent, a group of prostitutes come to the church. The main one was gorgeous. Really emotional story and kept me entertained.
6/10 I felt like I've seen this movie before. In fact I have, it was called It's Kind of a Funny Story which also starred Emma Roberts. Decent movie but nothing special. She's pretty cute though, I'll give her that.
I had no internet or TV for a week, so I caught up on a few movies from my collection that I had not gotten around to.
Dr. No - The first Bond movie, and one of the most boring IMO. I had seen most of the Bond movies, but surprisingly never the first even though I own the whole collection (minus Quantum of Solace, which came out after I stopped buying movies). I love many of the old Connery Bond movies, but they had not yet found the right pacing yet in this movie IMO. Overall, it was long and boring without many of the Bond elements that I have come to love. One of my least favorite Bond movies. 5/10
Vertigo - I have seen many of Hitchcock's films (and like the Bond movies, I have the whole collection of Hitchcock films), but never got around to this, one of his most famous. It was very different from what I was expecting. A lot more romance to the story and less focus on his fear of heights than I was expecting. Still, a very interesting story even though I'm not a big romance fan. 7/10
The Great Escape - As you can see, I had a habit of buying classic movies, but not getting around to them in a timely manner even though I always plan on watching them sooner. I loved this movie. Entertaining from start to finish, and even better was that even when you think you know what is going to happen, the movie sends you a curve ball. Also, it has a great cast. 9/10
