without a doubt the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. My girlfriend and I couldn't believe it made it past the editing room.



Yesterday I watch the valet (la doublure), french comedy about a valet helping cover for a rich guy having an affair with a super model. Was surprisingly good and funny. One of the best movies I've seen in awhile and was good that it wasn't the standard regurgitated crap most american comedies are these days. We watched it because it was written by the same people who did the dinner game (another good french film) I'd give it 8/10

I never saw it, but I swear when it first came out, everybody raved about it, and then those who saw it later had the reaction you did. Makes me think people got caught up in the hype at the time.

I watched "Prisoners" last night and it was the best movie I have seen in over a year.

yea, it's a well-crafted, pleasant movie with very little depth, so that makes sense.

there is my full review if interested:

Watched Think Like A Man this weekend and it was really bad. It had some funny lines but it was exactly the type of romantic comedy cheesiness that you would expect.

I had a similar reaction to Lost in Translation. I've never watched the full movie because it doesn't really hold my attention, which is why I think Myth might be right about the hype train. It was probably easy to engage when it first came out because people were really interested in dissecting and discussing the story. Now that it is difficult to connect because it is just floating around online and people decide to casually watch it on a Sunday night.

I dig Lost In Translation.

I love the way Tokyo was shot. Murray is great, ScarJo was kinda meh but it resonated pretty well.

It probably just got too much hype from wannabe arthouse critics for all these years but it is def a solid movie with heart.

I loved Giovanni Ribisi's character for some reason, he was such a douche.

It was a different, and kind of interesting. But really it came off as dull at times. Overall it's alright, but nothing special.

The Shawshank Redemption

9.5/10

Don't know why it took me so long to finally sit down and watch this. Really enjoyed the movie. Really good job by Tim Robbins and beautifully directed.
