Headhunters - 7.5/10
Norwegian crime thriller with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister). Good movie, well worth watching.

Interview with the Vampire - 7/10
A bit slow for my taste, but well written and I think that acting by Cruise and Pitt was great.

Last movie I saw at the theater was the Dark Knight Rises in July, 2012.

It was all I expected. Nothing more and nothing less.

The end was satisfying. But it was not the dramatic ending the Dark Knight was (its predecessor from 2008).

I hear they are rebooting the Batman franchise again but this time with Nolan overlooking production.

I guess I have spent enough time reading Batman/comic book message boards to anticipate the storyline, plots, and twists based on fan suggestions since Batman Begins came out in 2005. It's like Nolan and the writers totally took it from them and wrote the script off of their suggestions.

Or maybe they were trying to please the fans.

But in the end, it's nice to see a good ending to this franchise with Christian Bale as Batman.

lol funniest part is that broken city apparently sucks ass (not watching that shit). jack reacher was solid but silver linings playbook was better than both


Scarface 8/10 This movie's just fun as hell. I know Pacino overracted sometimes but I thought that it was freaking hilarious. Movie had some problems (like wtf was the point of that girl?) but Pacino pretty much carried it and made it worthwhile

End of Watch 8/10. Good acting, excellent writing, stylishly shot, etc. Wish they build some of the characters up more though.

Just started the Sopranos (currently in season 3): 9/10 so far

Scarface and There Will Be Blood are the two most quotable non-comedies to me. That adds to how memorable they are. There are tons of similarities between the two movies IMO. Both focus on guys who are obsessed with money/power and will destroy all those around them on their path until they snap and go berserk at the end. They both have powerful music that guide the films, including intense scenes where nothing is happening except the intense look on the main character's face with said powerful music.

I would imagine popular opinion is something in the ballpark of 6-7 out of 10 rating, predictable, gimmick theme, etc and to some extent you're at least somewhat right.

... but ...

This movie to me is 8.5-9 out of 10, easily. Highly entertaining beginning to end; the "B Movie" level characters plays their roles with professional level performance, and overall, it's just a fast-paced, couple twists and turns here and there, surprising blink of an eye appearances from cult favorites (such as Gibson and Chris Rock).

Damn good movie. Never got enough credit or buzz.

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

This is my mom's favorite Douglas movie, hands down. The "brief case" scene gets an automatic laugh from her, no matter what.





Love and Basketball: 8/10

Sanaa Lathan looks literally like an angel in this flick. A competitive, jump shot shooting, charge taking angel, who's temper sometimes gets her in trouble on the basketball court. Omar Epps plays her love interest, who's also a baller himself, and the way they evolve as people throughout the movie with their respective families was really touching.

This movie's "style" had that "made for tv" feel at times, but the central story never really gets too complicated or thought provoking anyway. It just does a great job of handling black people and family life during the 80s as simply that; PEOPLE, who have ups and downs, and highs and lows like everyone else.
