We should change the title to rate the last movie you hate because that is what I'm going to do.

Sound of Noise: 7/10- I really feel like this movie is one I personally should have liked way more. But in the end it just didn't have anything to put it over the top.

Great concept. Interesting presentation. A little more humor would have been appreciated but it had it's moments. A few things went unexplained, but I think it's meant to be absurd like that.

But lets cut all the bullshit. This movie has gained note because of it's musical set pieces. And damn! they are really worth the wait. I was worried that the music was going to be all about industrial rock sound but it ended up being more Stomp than anything which is never ever a bad thing. The sets were so clever that I wonder if the movie was built around them rather than the other way around.

The plot itself is decent, and it leads up to a very very satisfying ending.

I recommend for people who enjoy both classical and rhythmic music. The soundtrack and rhythmic set pieces are wonderful.

Skyfall is the most overrated movie of 2012. Best blockbuster my ass. And regarding its cinematography there are other films that could compete against it. The Master(shame it wasn't nominated), for example.

Admission - 6/10

Was just OK. Had a lot more potential...Tina Fey was charming though. Lots of plot holes and a bit long, lacked entertainment.

Lincoln 6/10
Good acting, filming, etc. but just nothing drew me into this film. I was really looking forward to it expecting it to pack a powerful punch and it just didn't do it for me. There was a scene where (highlight to read) one guy just started saying something like "No, I can't stand to hear another story from President Lincoln," and I felt like I completely related to it. I wanted to see more of JGL's character because there was more emotion to his scenes than 98% of the movie even though he really was in only like 3 scenes.

Wut? How about the House debates? TLJ owned those scenes.

I Love You Phillip Morris. 65/100

Funny movie, Jim Carey being Jim Carey. I initially thought it was bullsh!t then i read up on it and found out most of the movie is true. It is an outrageous story.

The guy escaped prison countless times, conned his way to a CFO position, and faked his own death from AIDS to escape prison.

Warning for those who might take offense: it is a gay love story that revolves around prison, so you can imagine what that entails

There's a 6 strike anti pirating rule that has been implemented by big companies like Verizon, etc.. so I'm wondering if you guys use VPN's or their not that serious about it.

I wasn't saying there were no scenes that drew me in. It was just that a majority of them did not.

yea lincoln disappointed me as well. it was executed more or less well enough, the problem was the idea in the first place. a larger than life figure like abe lincoln, played by a larger than life actor in ddl, deserves a much more broad based story than what was offered. the story of his presidency should have been told in chunks over 150 minutes or w/e, six or seven different periods over his life and/or time in office that showed his personal growth, the shifting trends of the country, stuff like that

the 14th amendment stuff just felt really anticlimactic, like an irrelevant microcosm of the life's work of a man who did so much more in tumultuous times. instead the audience was treated to a host of tactics and political maneuverings to get enough votes and stall the peace and this or that, with cardboard villains who lie and distort pitted against the prudent virtuous heroes who tell it like it is, etc etc

iunno it wasn't horrible but 6/10 sounds about right if only for what it wasn't yet had the potential to be




anyway the last movie i saw was On the Road. i've never read the book and whenever i see a film adaptation of a novel i wanted to read, i inevitably wind up regretting it. the first 15 minutes were an amazing trip and i was really jazzed and then the next two hours or so dragged on a little bit. the format was actually exactly what i wish lincoln had of used, about six or seven 20 minute chunks over the course of 18 months and eventually 10 years.

i thought it could have been better but the acting was great, the tunes were cool, snappy dialogue and characters of varying stripes sorta bouncing off one another. made me research a bunch about all these beat generation legends and what they wound up doing over the past 60 years, then relating that information back to how they were portrayed as youngsters in the film. so that was fun.

i'd give it a 8/10
