Bad Ass 7/10



If you're a Danny Trejo fan, you might like this one more. I found it above average for a straight to dvd flick. Ron Perlman and Charles S. Dutton also make appearances. It's the story of a down on his luck Vietnam vet who one day is seen as a vigilante hero of the people.

The Raid: Redemption 9/10

Best choreographed action movie I have ever seen.

What do you mean by choreographed?

Is it martial arts? Or do you mean as far as gun play and chases and such are concerned?

7/10

This was pretty enjoyable. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

Kung Fu Panda - 7/10. Interesting enough to watch, but nothing amazing.

The hand to hand fighting. Some of it is martial arts, while others are just awesome moves even if they don't fit into a specific fighting style. And there is a lot of suspense too, which is rare for movies that are just fight scene after fight scene.

Bourne Legacy 7/10 - Definitely liked Renner in this. I liked that it wasn't just Bourne going at the agency again.
Total Recall 6/10 - Entertaining for the most part, but it just lacks so much of what the original had. Also, I was still expecting mutants since 3 tits was in it. Was disappointed to see that they had 1 mutant and no others. Might as well have removed her completely too if they aren't having other mutants. And the end was completely weak compared to the original, while all the twists were pretty much a complete rehash of the original. Please, if you are going to remake a film, do something new with it.
Did you just movie hop? I've always wanted to just spend a whole day at the theaters watching many movies but only buying one ticket.

No. I use the theater all the time, so it wouldn't be worth getting banned. The theater I go to has $5 Tuesdays anyway, so I only spent $15 and saw 3 movies. I view movie hopping the same way I view stealing: If it isn't worth the money, it isn't worth stealing either.

was entirely unsatisfactory as a bourne film. there was nothing even remotely bourne about it, lost everything that made bourne bourne. even narratively it was completely unnecessary to tie it to the bourne franchise. had it not been cash cowed to this franchise it would have been an acceptable generic, glossy studio action film(read- none of the grit or realism of bourne). as a bourne film it is a complete and utter failure.

6/10

I friggin' loved The Cabin in the Woods. It's an 8/10 and tempted to bump it up to a 9/10 on the basis that it keeps getting better in my mind and I want to watch it again.

It basically hit every note I was hoping it would. It was funny, gory, and satirized the modern horror movie almost perfectly. I was worried for a second that the ending would cheapen the rest of the movie and then my faith was restored with an awesome ending. Oh, and it had a unicorn. The Buffy/Angel feel to the movie was obvious with Whedon/Goddard. If you take the movie at face value, it probably won't resonate as much for you. If you view it keeping in mind recent horror movies and cliches, it becomes one of the best movies of the year so far, IMO.

I second this. Watched it today and loved it. Best horror movie I've watched since Dale and Tucker.

Do it. I watched it and it was perfectly fine. Audio\Video are great and the subs you stop noticing like 5 minutes in. I don't read Korean so they just looked like little lines, didn't ruin it for me at all.
