Elevate: 7/10- A movie about following young basketball players rise up from their poor beginnings and try to fight off pressures to achieve their dreams.

Sound familiar? Of course it does? So you may be asking. Is it as good as Hoop Dreams? Fuck no! But it's still a damn good movie.

The players are pretty interesting. But it's like 90 minutes and we deal with a whole academy of people. So we don't get enough of them. We see the pressures of one guy, see him deal and move right on.

The movie shines because we see how these academies work. If they had focused on that more than on the players than a 90 minute movie would have worked much better. As it were it tried to balance everything out.

A decent flick. I recommend if you like basketball so... pretty much to all of you here.

Iron Sky. Thought the plot idea was really cool. Nozi's from the dark side of the Moon. Kept me entertained. Shots at America were kinda funny too.

7\10 (slightly above average for me, not sure how to rank that outta 10 lol)

Michael Fassbender is an awesome actor. Loved everything I've seen him in. I'm not going to check out Prometheus in theaters but I'll def check it out when it comes out on DVD.

I still don't know if it has anything to do with the original Alien movies

Haha, its just a movie, i thought it was kindof bad... but im a bit Rutger Hauer biased and Tarantino/Rodriguez style movie fan (they kindof promoted this one aswell as this same director was involved with the making of Grindhouse), so you know it will be kindof gory.. this one is actually not any gorier than Kill Bill or something like that... it felt also like watching a typical b-movie action flick from the 80s, where they just throw in a guy going on a killing spree, no plot almost, bad acting, nothing, thats it and then the end,... i miss those lol

Yep... and if you want to take it up a notch:









You HAVE to see these... Peter Jackson (LOTR) was one sick bastard lol, he even acted in some of those gore flicks like in Bad Taste where he plays one crazzzzy psycho.. i was kindof shocked when i heard he was gona make LOTR considering he was very known as a crazy GORE producer, thought he was gona make the bloodiest/goriest movie of all time with all that money and new technology with LOTR and shock the entire world or something

I dont know if I would give it a 7/10 but its most definitely a crazy ass flick. I do understand the confusion of how to rank it though.

"Do you realize your kissing a Negro?"

MIB 3 the bad guy wasnt in their enough.... Its mostly a drivel story.... 5/10 meh flavour.

Just watched The Grey. Didn't really like it, way too implausible for my taste. Liam Neeson was on his usual badass level, but it just wasn't enough. Ending kinda left an impression, but still, not a good movie imo. Wolves acting like horror movie killers is just no...

Road to Perdition - 9/10


almost a 10, but then I thought about it and realized it's not quite on the same level as Goodfellas, Godfather, Millers Crossing, Scarface, etc... The revenge scenes weren't nearly as satisfying as they should've been, parts of the movie seemed a little rushed. Jude Law came through tho, what an awesomely creepy character.

Prometheus. 7/10.

I really enjoyed the whole movie from start to finish. I think Scott is a very talented director. I wonder what he could have done with Blade Runner with today's technology. Go see this film. I liked it and I don't even remember seeing the other Alien movies.

Be warned though, you might hate this movie. My brother and friends didn't like it at all. I hear this is a love or hate type of movie. I thought it was very well done. If they even do a Halo movie I want it to be done like this.

Prometheus is ok as a stand alone movie 5/10. I think Alien diehards would appreciate it more 7/10. It definitely wasnt anything I expected but still a solid movie.

The anticipation didnt match the results IMHO.
