There's nothing worse than watching a shot for 3-d bit when it's in 2-d on tv or in a different theater. My friend and I found two tickets for that shitty Brendan Frasier movie 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' a few years ago so we went. We saw it in 2-d and the theater was empty so every time one of those horrible choreographed bits happened we yelled, "3-D!"

Can't help it, I really don't like 3-d.

I like it in the IMAX theater but it's annoying at home. I was watching the Disney/Jim Carrey Christmas Carol this weekend and it has a couple terribly "made for 3D but are awful at home scenes" that just really brought the movie down.

It's funny, the end of the 1st half or so disappointed me but I actually really liked the end of the movie. Either way it impressed me and was much better than I was expecting. 9/10'd it.

This isn't a movie but I just watched the most recent (4?) season of Luther on BBC. Why the **** can't they make a season last longer than 4 damn episodes. John Luther is awesome but it's always just a tease and it's over in a flash.

Anchorman 2 - 8/10. It is strange trying to rate this movie. I laughed my ass off, yet at the same time I felt it was a disappointment that dragged on too long. The disappointment obviously comes from my love for the 1st one. I love the characters so much but the humor just felt like it was 80% as funny as the first one. If the original didn't exist, I might have liked it more. Part of me wants to give it an 8.5 or 9 based on how much I laughed, but the disappointment factor drags it down. For the record, the original in a top 3 comedy for me (along with The Jerk and Tommy Boy).

4/5

entertaining, strong acting, plot could've been tighter though.

Don Jon - 8/10

I was expecting something goofy, but this was a real film. I know just about every guy that saw this could relate to it to some extent. JGL did a great job diving into the details of a guy with such an issue. I felt this to be just as powerful as Shame (w/Fassbender). I like how at one point it looked like the main issue was just going to be his addiction, but then they dive even further to point out the reality within the relationship, and how it wasn't what he thought he remembered it as (i know they did that in 500 Days of Summer - but this was more about learning not to beat yourself up even after you **** up, because the way she acted like a bitch towards him could have easily warped his perspective of himself when it comes to love and damaged future relationships for him, but the red head is there to anchor him). I can relate to beating myself up and missing someone who really, despite many qualities, treated me like unless i molded myself to their will, i wasn't doing anything right. I enjoyed this film and recommend it to any guy. Especially young men (twenties).

Dallas Buyer's Club: 8.5/10

Saw a screening of this this past week that was followed by a Q&A wit Leto. Both he and McConaughey(sp?) should both be front runners for awards, especially Leto since his field is less competitive. It wasn't only the extreme weight loss (both guys lost at least 30 lbs), but they embodied their characters, Leto was completely unrecognizable and utterly believable as an Aids patient pre op tranny. And Matthew retained that Southern good old boy charm even when he was displaying some old fashioned bigotry. I loved how it didn't turn into the sappy bad guy turned magically good Hollywood tripe, even as his character evolved and grew, it was a gradual process and he still retained some of his old ways and world views right up till the end. They managed to retain comedy throughout despite the heavy subject matter. Very tightly directed.

The whole thing was shot in 25 days with no studio lights, no rehearsal. I'm sure it was a grueling process, especially throwing in the extreme weight loss both stars endured. But the end result was worth it, I'm sure they all feel the same.

You found all 3 Iron Man movies to be in the same range? Part 1 is so far ahead of 2 and 3.

Agree with this. I found it to be better than expected.
