I don't get the award hype this is getting. It's a well made very competent thriller but that's it. To its credit, it does create some decent tension in some moments even though we all know where the story is headed. I didn't really buy into the character drama element of it. Maya just wasn't interesting enough. It was a solid 7/10 for me.

Seven Psychopaths...

I want to give this movie such a high rating. I cant even fully describe the weirdness of this movie. I was entertained but it lacked something where I can say its a 9/10. However, I can see where it could get such a high rating by some reviewers.

I would love to see what others thought about it.

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, "Seven Psychopaths". Billy (Rockwell) is Marty's best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Hans (Walken) is Billy's partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie's unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn't think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.

Silver Linings Playbook- 7.8/10

I thought all of the performances were top notch, including Chris Tucker who kind of disappeared for a while. It was a nice mix of comedy and drama with off the beaten path characters. Deniro finally got a role he could sink his teeth into after a couple of years in toiling in shit projects. I would've rated it higher but it sort of annoyed me that it went out of its way to avoid the tired cliches of rom coms but ended in the most cliche way possible (Spoiler: A chase through the streets and a declaration of love? Only thing that would've beaten that was if it happened in an airport).



Les Miserables- 6.5/10

What a tedious, overlong film.

Hathaway was great in her limited role, definitely deserves the praise she's getting. Jackman as well, he fit the role well. Russell Crowe, although a great proven actor, was terribly miscast in this one. The man can't sing and I don't know why no one has told him yet. That was very irresponsible of his management and the production team, that shit was embarrassing and cringe-worthy.

I should've preface by saying that although I generally don't care for musicals (stage and otherwise), I loved the broadway production of Les Mis. Just didn't work in film IMO. It was way too long, could've been easily cut down by a 1/3 without missing anything. Halfway through I found myself watching the DVD timer just hoping it would end

Iron Sky: HAHAAAAA/10- Lemme just sum this shit up.

Nazi's from the moon.

(Decent) Spoof of the famous Downfall scene that became an internet meme.

Black guy turned white, and the billion lame ass jokes based on that.

Sarah Palin Presidency.

I was hoping this would be like an Assylum movie: You know it's shit but it's still fun to watch like Sharktopus.

But it wasn't even fun. Shame.

It had a blazing saddles feel to it at first so I was like cool. Then it just dragged on without being funny. Then you realize it's a more serious movie than you anticipated by then you could give a flying FRACK about the characters. It just was so over the top that you cant take it serious but then when you take it serious its too freaking over the top.

Dr. Shultz was the best character and pretty much all other characters were SHAT.

9/10. I prefer Part 1 because of Bruce's arc.
