Ok, I hear you. Personally, if there is a movie I plan on seeing I never read the long reviews, because the longer the review the more likely they get into details I don't want to know.

Yea I'm the same. I saw that it was just a paragraph so I figured I'd be ok, or at least be able to bail at the end. So much for that.

This movie was like Dick Tracy, without acknowledging how absurd it was. The performances cliche, over the top and cartoony. The score, horrendously cheesy. The dialogue? If you could put it on chips, it'd be nachos. Sean Penn? Over the top and corny.

The look of the film, overly stylized and a cheap imitation of Zach Snyder. Just an atrocious experience.

The movie acts like it's being earnest, yet it's heinously over the top and whimsical.

Did you get your money back?

Uhh I saw Jack Reacher and Iron Sky. Pass on both, not even worth reviews really, just ho hum.

You should have sat through it. In my opinion it gets much better towards the end, when the action picks up.

Still, it was far from what I expected it to be. Like you, I expected a good, gritty, dark gangster movie, and not some cliche hollywood good (rogue) cops vs bad criminals story. I really like Sean Penn as an actor, but there was no excuse for what he did to that character.. Like a bad impression of Scarface. Some horrible bad guy lines like:"once we get this operation going, we will rule the entire west coast", really don't help either. Of course the good cop's gf is pregnant (with a boy nonethelss) and her life is treathened, but he won't give up his job eventhough she wasnt him to etc. etc. It's all there.
The first 15 moments I was just sitting there like: wtf they can't be serious with this sh*t. I really didn't expect the movie to be like this, eventhough the Jay-Z song in the trailer kinda gave it away (I mean.. it's a 70's gangster movie).
Still, I couldn't hate the movie and in the end I was rooting for the good guys, who you know would win from the opening credits (if there were any). The action was nice and there were some funny moments as well.

I give it a 6/10.

The film's strength doesn't lie in its plotline; it's a very, very basic series of events, so going in knowing that won't ruin your enjoyment. I'm certain of that.

And every movie review has a spoiler or two in it. You can't discuss a film, really, without discussing some aspects of what went on in it.

The Last Stand - It is far from perfect, but it was entertaining. That said, I hope the director sticks to Korean films where he can do exactly what he wants to do rather than have to conform to Hollywood demands. Also, it was fun to see Arnold back at it in a starring role. 7/10

Fighting



8/10

Surprisingly, I was very entertained watching this. I just wish there were more fight(s)(ing) instead of being character relationships/drama. The fight scenes were done well, not predictable (which is good, obviously), realistic, complemented with a sweet soundtrack.

Anyone else seen this? Thoughts?

Clinton at the time, aware of where he was, at no point pulled the trigger on an attempt on his life.

None of this sounds overly convenient to you, or sketchy?

As for the movie, some stand out performances. It depicted a believable reality. I just found in parts it was kind of slow, and un interesting. But 8/10? That's a very good movie. I readily admit. And like I said, the actors performances were top notch.

So you're not sure how you know for a FACT.

Bin Laden was thought to need kidney dialysis, but what he actually had, they now believe were kidney stones which are temporary. Based on interviews with Bin Laden's family, they now believe he was in excellent health. During the '90's he would take his families on long hikes in the high mountains of Aghanistan because he wanted to prepare them for a life on the run if they needed to.

As for Clinton, we never knew where Bin Laden was for any length of time. We didn't have a drone program like we do know where it only take minutes for a missile to land. If Clinton were fire a missile, it would take several hours before it reached its target, so you needed to know if Bin Laden was going to remain in one place for several hours. The best chance we had to get him, he was in the company of princes from the United Arab Emirates, so to pull the trigger would have caused some problems.

Silver Lining Playbook - 9/10

Wow. Saw this in theaters last night. I was shocked to see the acting chops displayed by Bradley Cooper. Jennifer Lawrence was plain sexy. Some amazing performances all around. A beautiful film that depicts love, failure, and redemption in the greatest ways possible. Probably in my top 3 of 2012.

Headhunters - 7.5/10
Norwegian crime thriller with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister). Good movie, well worth watching.

Interview with the Vampire - 7/10
A bit slow for my taste, but well written and I think that acting by Cruise and Pitt was great.

Last movie I saw at the theater was the Dark Knight Rises in July, 2012.

It was all I expected. Nothing more and nothing less.

The end was satisfying. But it was not the dramatic ending the Dark Knight was (its predecessor from 2008).

I hear they are rebooting the Batman franchise again but this time with Nolan overlooking production.

I guess I have spent enough time reading Batman/comic book message boards to anticipate the storyline, plots, and twists based on fan suggestions since Batman Begins came out in 2005. It's like Nolan and the writers totally took it from them and wrote the script off of their suggestions.

Or maybe they were trying to please the fans.

But in the end, it's nice to see a good ending to this franchise with Christian Bale as Batman.

lol funniest part is that broken city apparently sucks ass (not watching that shit). jack reacher was solid but silver linings playbook was better than both


Scarface 8/10 This movie's just fun as hell. I know Pacino overracted sometimes but I thought that it was freaking hilarious. Movie had some problems (like wtf was the point of that girl?) but Pacino pretty much carried it and made it worthwhile
