Five Fingers: 8/10

Wow, just caught this one a few minutes ago. I had no idea it even existed and I'm kind of pissed I missed this when it came out. The story centers around a banker from Holland who en route to Morocco to establish a humanitarian food program, is kidnapped by a terrorist cell. But everything is not as it seems :strokes villain stache:

Great cast headlined by Laurence Fishburne and Ryan Phillippe who both are on their games. The film is very minimalist and mainly occurs in one barren room, the story and the performances carry this thing and it captures your attention throughout with some great twists.

Really engaging movie even though the majority of it could be classified as a silent film. The animation was top notch. Great, very creative story with a message.

Good call, but Wall-E deserves an 9.0 if not a 10 IMO.

IF you liked it you should definitely watch UP, and also the new Pixar movie Brave.

The Deer Hunter

I know it gets tons of acclaim, but it was just way too long for me. pretty close to 3 hours long, deniro and walken are great, and there are lots of great scenes, but so many scenes that are just unnecessary, and drag out the whole story

7.5/10 for me

if its 2.5 hours, or maybe a little shorter, id probably give it an 8 or a 9

GOD BLESS AMERICA 4/10
There were a few really good scenes and the basic idea (killing those people who are so repugnant they deserve to die) but it was badly acted, the main characters just talked so much, and listening to them you wondered why they were doing what they were doing, it didn't make sense at times. Very dissapointing.

Brave was good but not on the same level as Wall-e and Up imo. Those 2 are masterpieces.

I agree. I really think the best ending would have been rather depressing. Just in case someone here still hasn't seen it Imma put it in white: The most efficient ending would have been if Wall-E's directive stayed rewired. If he completely reset and EVE had to take care of him just like he did her. Maybe they hint that after a while he'll go back to regular Wall-E but they never show it.

While I'm not UK, most people in here would probably consider me a bit of a film snob, but I have no problem with this rating for something many consider a classic. The opening act of the wedding is way too long even considering it's period. The whole aura surrounding this movie is really based on those couple of russian roullette scenes. Without the iconism of those scenes, it's little more than a well performed footnote.

Lockout 6/10

plot/setting may be dumb, but it was fast-paced and had just enough action to keep me from getting bored

True. It's still good and worth seeing though.
