Dark Knight: Rises!

There is no other series that compares to these.

Although the Gotham always falls victim as a whole but the details and intricacies of the stories are quite compelling.

10/10

Who's Your Caddy?
7/10

End of Watch
Nice intense police story. It isnt anything overwhelming and the script wasnt special but the acting was good.
7/10

That's My Boy
It had its moments. Typical crass movie.
6/10

Hit and Run
Trash 3/10

Total Recall
Its a solid movie. Nothing special. Visually pleasing but the story premise left a lot to be desired.

6.5/10

^ I saw that as well, I'd agree with what you said.


Holy Motors
Whoa this movie is weird. If i wasn't high when i saw it, the movie would be random as hell. I'm actually still confused about what happen. Denis Lavant is a hell of an actor though. If you have no other reason to watch, watch just to see Denis Lavant's acting skills. Very odd drama. I don't even know what to rate it, doesn't feel like a movie you rate. You just watch and follow. Its worth a checking out.

Skyfall

Finally got around to watching it and liked a lot of what they did in this one. First, Craig was great as Bond. His version of the character is as badass as ever and was even pretty smooth in his scenes with the Bond girls. I do wish though that he had shown more emotion when the girl died. The plot was great and especially good because it went deep into many iconic characters including bond himself. Connected with the past of characters such as M. The weakest part of the film would probably be the villain IMO. Too much telling instead of showing for his supposed great skills. Overall, the movie was great and bounced back from QoS (which sucked ass) and was a nice way for the reboot to introduce important characters like Moneypenny and Q.

9.3/10

Just saw the Bourne Legacy and Ted. Horrible ****ing movies but Ted was shot better. Bourne's director should never shoot another ****ing thing, but himself.

finally caught up on a few movie. still a few more to check out....



7/10. good movie, well acted. the thing that really kept me from giving it a higher score was the end really. the last 30-45 minutes was bizarro world. spoilers ahead...i thought the whole drumstick sucking thing was just added for shock value imo. it made me uncomfortable that it went on for so long which i guess was the intention but it just seemed...somewhat cheap and tacky and almost a way to fill time. then the final scene just made me laugh with the copious amounts of blood. i don't think that was the intention but there you go. pretty strange ending to an otherwise really good movie.



6/10. it was a lot different than i expected. it had its moments but overall, i didn't really connect to it emotionally as much as many others seemed to. the relationship with the couple at the end was interesting but seemed somewhat forced. it was a bit of a character study but i thought too many characters were barely looked into and that hurt the overall impact. if you do that sort of movie, you have to give it time to develop. that's where this movie suffered with a 95 minute duration. i think if it were given a couple hours, it would have been so much better. still...unique movie that is probably worth checking out.



7/10 this is a documentary but i guess it fits here. sobering reality that is at times crushing. shows what happens when an entity is largely ungoverned with no real jurisdiction. not an anti-american movie as you can probably point out various types of abuse all over the world....it just shows how systematic it has become within the military. don't know how to rate this...it was eye opening but it definitely won't make you feel good at all.



7/10. another really unique movie. it's about a struggling writer (whose been labeled a 'one hit wonder' by many critics). he embarks on his latest creation and it inexplicably shows up in real life. some quirky lines and unexpected moments but the last 20 minutes seemed like a slight cop out to me. it just started to become really formulaic and predictable.



7/10. this is more a movie about the relationship between the two cops than it is about the criminals. michael pena was really awesome in his role and the last scene is just super dramatic (though i still wonder what took the cops so long to arrive). i also wondered why they followed a red light runner into that lobby as well even if they suspected he was carrying shit. seemed like they could have that part a bit more enticing.. entertaining but no 'classic'.



8/10. just a mysteriously engaging film. you never knew really what was going to happen. john c reilly showed some serious acting chops in this as well. then add in hall's performance? gold. the cinematography and screenplay complemented each other greatly. it has this old school feel to it which i really liked. worth a repeat viewing in my book. highly recommended.

bourne legacy - 8/10

i liked it. i did have low expectations with the departure of matt damon though. it was fast paced and the plot was less complicated than the previous movies. if you classify it as a popcorn movie, then it definitely is very good.

Untouchables 1/10

What a piece of shit this thing was, my god! I couldn't believe how atrocious this film was. Costner was terrible, completely wooden acting in every scene. To my surprise the horrible score of the film was created by the great Ennio Morricone. Such a cheesy film with such shitty dialog, amazed me how there was such little redeeming value in this film.

I think The Untouchables is overrated, but 1/10?
