Brilliant. Add in a wannabe serious Dick Tracy element too, I think you're being very generous with the score, broski.

Didn't you give TDK Rises a 7/10, and then give Gangster Squad a 6/10? Weak sauce, my dude.

A Haunted House.... 7/10
I never saw paranormal activity or any of those type of movies so I dont know how it relates even if it does. It starts off really slow but it does get more amusing or interesting after 30 minutes. Its not like Scary Movie 1 or 2 that the Wayans made.

6 is still a D, failing score. It was entertaining in a corny comedy way.

Dude that movie was a complete mess. It didn't know what it wanted to be. And you gave it a letter grade under TDK Rises? LOL

You're smart, but your taste in movies befuddles me to no end.

I bumped TDKR to 8.5 after I judged it individually instead of the sequel to a masterpiece.

Gangster Squad was more of a 5 I guess, still you only watched 25 minutes mon, trust me it gets better in a shitty laugh out loud way.

I think that would be a spot on rating for it ...

Begins: 9/10
TDK: 10/10 (Nolan's Magnum Opus)
Rises: 8.5/10

I was told it gets worse, and I guess if you just start treating it as a non serious movie you can like it (as you say)

But the material in the film takes itself seriously, which clashes in tone with it being a cornier version of the Untouchables. It's a movie that is attempting to be serious that is inadvertently funny.

My dude told me at the climax the protagonist and antagonist just start boxing?



Only parts I enjoyed were Gosling's deliveries. I have a man crush on dude. He just has too much charisma.

Yea and the cop beats up the boxing champ then arrests him LOL. My boy was like "That's bullshit, it would be like me beating up Anderson Silva".

The opening scene is supposed to be violent, but it was SO cartoonish. Like I said, it's like Untouchables meets Dick Tracy, yet it isn't purposely trying to be like Dick Tracey, and at least that film acknowledges it is a cartoon and is supposed to be over the top.

You seen any new movies lately, bro? You still have to check Silver Lining's Playbook.
I watched first 20 minutes of it with my cousin, both him and me were high and that movie depressed the shit out of us for some reason. Bradley Cooper's flip flopping and fast dialogue gave us headaches, we walked out in 25 minutes.

Gotta watch it again with a clear mind. I hate paying 25$ for one short movie. I like to go little earlier and watch 2-3 movies to clear up all the new releases. Otherwise it seems like a waste.

I agree on his charisma. He just has it. And he's a terrific actor.

Cloud Atlas -

Well, this one was no ordinary film... it started of well, then it got really confusing with the constant back and forth intertwine of many stories that made less and less sense, one story in particular i couldnt understand 50% of the words that were coming out of their mouth, had to collect the actual english words and use my instincts to try and figure out what they meant... i was patient, but there were to many "why" questions left unexplained... so i kept being patient, maybe i would figure it out at the end, its a 3 hour long movie afterall and once it ended i had just even more "why" questions... i sat there in silence watching the credits and pondering "Great acting, liked the stories, but wait why? who? when? what the **** did i just watch?"

I guess i have to read the book or rewatch the movie a 100 times....... so ill see you with a proper rating & review in a couple of years...

Until then:

The Departed: 8.5/10

I can't believe this movie came out in 2006 and this is only my first time watching it. Although it was two and a half hours long, it was such an awesome movie that was filled with a great cast containing some big names like DiCaprio, Nicholson, Wahlberg, Damon, and Sheen.
