I probably overrate Falling Down and am probably a bit biased but I give it 8/10, easy.

Love this movie, seen it many times!

End of Watch

7/10

decent entertainment but very shallow

hated the garbage love story within

and didn't like the "project" Jake Gylenhall was working with the camera, seemed like an excuse to get some different angles in

however, loved that lesbian from curb side gang

Killing them softly

5/10

awful soundtrack, close to no story, lots of boring irrelevant scenes
good camera work, especially the killing scenes, few funny scenes, decent acting


movie tried to be subtle and stylish too hard

The Hobbit - 7.5/10

It was pretty solid. Haven't seen LOTR movies but read the Hobbit book. There was some great action and I wasn't bored at any point even though it was a long watch.

Just watched Taxi Driver. 10/10, third best movie of the 70's behind Godfather and Godfather part II.

74%

This movie seems like it reads better than it comes across on the screen. It was solid and intelligent, but none of the performances, save Hellen Mirren's did anything for me.

Jack Reacher - 7/10

I don't really have a problem with Cruise. He played the part well and it was an entertaining action movie. I've never seen Rosamund Pike before but god damn . Her cleavage was very distracting. Also Robert Duvall was pretty funny in his small part. And it was cool to see Jai Courtney outside of his role as Varro in Spartacus.

Django Unchained - 9.5/10

I was skeptical about this movie and wasn't impressed by the trailers, read the negative reviews and expected crap, but DAMN Tarantino delivered again. I will never doubt him from now on.

Award worthy performances by 4 different people, didn't know Fox could be so badass. What to expect - the classic sharp, humorous and witty Tarantino dialogue, sweet action sequences with impressive sound effects and display of brutal yet entertaining violence, and AMAZING musical choices. Some of the soundtracks were just perfectly integrated with a scene. Movie had so many "HOLY SHIT I GOTTA REWIND THAT!" moments, it was just a perfect mix of comedy, action, charm and a lot of heart. I will definitely buy it on blu-ray.

Can't wait to see what Tarantino got next, hope he at least makes 2 more movies before retiring, he has said he wants to quit before losing his way and making shit like most Hollywood directors. You can tell he really loves crafting films to entertain the audience.

Reading the script before going to Django dinged the film a bit, as what was on paper blew away what was on the screen.

Skyfall - 6.5/10

That old lady was terribly annoying and i hated every moment she was on screen, especially when she talked. The only reason to watch this movie is for Javier Bardem. The dude is such a great actor and its always a treat to watch him on screen. I can't believe i still haven't watched "Biutiful." Other than enjoying his acting, everything else about the movie is your standard action flick. Nothing more or less. Watching it once is enough. I like Daniel Craig, but as i'm ready for a new bond. I have heard people suggest Idris Elba; that would be awesome.

Perhaps that's just a bad way to experience a film unless you are a producer or director.

I felt the same way when I read Inglorious Basterds' script months before it came out on screen. Maybe not blown away, but it definitely had a lot of extra great dialog and a lot of extra scenes that would have been cool to have watched.

For me its the best way. I have found that it elevates the viewing experience. You see the director's vision, actors audibles, and editors influence clearer.

Editing out Hildi's backstory removed the emotional heft from the movie. Django's transformation from a slave who was so meek, to a badass of McClainian proportions was left on the cutting room floor. As was the best scenes that explained why Stephen really hated Django so much.

Ive always felt that QT would make an outstanding novelist.
