This is definitely one of the most fast-paced movies that I have seen. Non-stop action for the most part; there are a few moments, but very few. Like even as the plot is developed, it is done while action is going on (fighting, chasing, etc). I feel like rating movies should be done by listing expectations going in and how the film delivered on those expectations. This movie delivered perfectly on what it intended. I think it is ridiculous when people go see a movie like this or a comedy and then want to complain because it isn't *list pretentious movie snobs artsy movie here with some deep transcendental meaning* and then give it 2/10 or something, lol. Anyways, good movie that will entertain you for a couple of hours and I recommend seeing it.

This is the first review I have seen that really liked it. How do you compare it to the original? Better or worse?

8.75 out of 10

Excellent, quirky yet touching film. Being from Texas, and knowing the director is from Texas, it definitely hit all the right spots. I'd recommend it to Jack Black and Richard Linklater fans alike.

Coriolanus 8/10

I didn't really like the first hour, and I was really put off by the Shakespeare dialog in a modern movie, but the 2nd hour of the movie was great and made sitting through the first hour totally worth it.

Usually it takes some time in the first act to adjust to Sakespeare's language but after that it isnt a problem.

I thought since it was modern day they would convert the dialog to modern day style language while conveying the same message and story.

Spike Lee is directing a remake. I have nothing specifically against Spike Lee, nor against remakes. But that makes my head hurt.

Memento:

one of my favorite Nolan films. I rank it slightly above Batman Begins.... made a lot more sense the second time watching it, didn't really catch some of the details my first view. brilliant concept by Nolan, the way the story goes backwards, fvcking great movie.

10/10

Yea I read that as well, no way it comes close to the original.... no point in trying really.

The Dark Knight Rises - 10/10
Nuff said.

Ted - 7/10
It had it's funny moments, but for the most part, it was extremely predictable.

Pulp Fiction - 10/10. I have honestly never finished a movie and wanted to re-watch it right away before this film. I am in complete awe of the perfection of this masterpiece. The story was incredible, the acting like nothing else, and holy shit it was hilarious too. I'm just like: .


The Prestige - 9/10. Yet another Nolan film that delivers. It was about 2 hours and 10 minutes long and I swear it felt like 20-30 minutes. The story was just so damn absorbing. Loved how the story was pieced together as well with present and past. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale really complemented each other really well, and Michael Caine was fantastic, the emotion in that man's eyes is incredible. I will be honest and say I didn't see the ending coming at all, until right before it did. Go see this if you have not...Scar Jo was delectable as well

Agreed.

TDKR - Better than BB, but not better than TDK

Watched it for the second time today, and it was even better. You have to be listening to the dialogue, because any missed lines would result in a reaction from the viewer. Like Selina wanting the 'clean slate' to clear her name. After my first viewing, I knew she was up to something but it wasn't clear for me until the 2nd viewing. The Talia twist wasn't really that bad, although it was the low point of the movie. They could have given her a better death. Like an instant death once the camera rolls to her after the crash. And Bane too. He should have not died directly after being shot by Selina. He could have stood up and Selina shooting her multiple times for a sure death.

Can't compare since I never saw the original. I just think it all depends on your expectations and stuff when you go into a movie. You're not going to see Transformers to see a movie with some amazing depth and writing; you're going to watch some mofo'ing Transformers fight and for some awesome CGI, lol. It's retarded when people get back from some action flick or a comedy and QQ because it isn't 'The Godfather' or whatever other movie that people love.

I really liked it because I had no expectations going in other than the ones that I listed in my review, so I wasn't disappointed, lol. It was a good, standard action movie. The story wasn't boring at all; pretty linear maybe, but not boring. It was so fast paced that I don't see how anybody could be bored with it. A lot of people like to shit on Colin Farrell, but he was fine in this movie. Biel was good. Beckinsale was pretty good too.

Wow, what a terrible film, especially the ending.
