Skyfall - 7.5. I hated the second movie of this series so was pleasantly surprised by this one, but the first one is still the best.

8.5/10

The movie has a deep message and very moving scenes. The one that stands out to me is when Jared Leto calls his girlfriend from the pay phone and they both just face reality while still making unrealistic promises. Definitely a heartbreaking movie. It will make you think about how far you would go for something. What your priorities are. You can get so much out of this film by watching it.

Great movie.

EDIT: Here's the scene I was talking about.

Life of Pi: 8/10- Look at that picture. I hadn't read the book, nor heard much about it. All I saw was the trailers and figured this was a survival tale where this boy befriends a tiger because they need each other to survive.

And if that's the story you want go watch another movie. This is a deep, confusing movie (also depressing, just to warn you) about faith, about life, and about coping. You really have to stick with it until the end and keep an open mind about it because a) It's a bit of an unreliable narrator just in that we don't know exactly how the story is unfolding whether they are direct flashbacks or just visual representation of the story he's telling. There are scenes that make NO SENSE when you watch them in context with the rest of the story (I'm sure they have other significance that a better viewer than me can pinpoint).

Visually? Stunning. From the bizarre sequences (mind boggling) to animal movement to epic action it's very good. And this is an epic tale. Well acted, well cut, from top to bottom this crew did a wonderful job and much kudos to Ang Lee.

Story wise, again, it's all very depressing. The novel maybe explains a bit more and I don't want to spoil it but if any of you see/have seen it I'd love for you to PM me cause I'd like your take on the ending, and on the overall theme.

I recommend this film, but you don't have to rush out to see it.

Skyfall... 7/10

Is it just me or did it seem like a Batman prequel or something?

Baraka
Watched this while lit, and it was pretty good, i definitely recommend it while lit. Certain parts of the film are chilling and sneak up on you out of nowhere. Very good directing. 9/10

Faces of Death (the original)
After Baraka we watched this and it is insane how violent humanity is, especially white people; they are on a whole new level and if you don't believe me just think about the Mengele's twins experiment. Got damn. I had seen this film as a kid but when your high its a much different experience. The cult leader who had people eating the dead and having an orgy during it? Damn. 8/10

Speed Racer
This is a really fun film to watch. Even when it first came out i felt like it was going under the radar. Visually it looks cool, the story is cool and a lot of it feels like the old cartoon. Its just an overall cool/fun movie, especially the races. 7/10

I did a Google search to see if anyone in this thread viewed/rated Precious. It didn't exactly find any results, but that can't be right, can it? There has to be thousands of reviews/rates in here, and not a single one for Precious?

Anywho, I know many of you have see that beast - and - I originally seen it a few years ago, but seen it again just here recently, and it reconfirmed my initial reaction of "damn, what a great, powerful moving movie" ...

The main character (can't recall the actress' name) played the role perfectly, and it's sad she'll never really play additional roles in future films b/c her look (big fat black girl) isn't going to be a highly desired part for movies. She's a damn good actress.

I give it 9.5 out of 10.
