End of Watch 8/10. Good acting, excellent writing, stylishly shot, etc. Wish they build some of the characters up more though.

Just started the Sopranos (currently in season 3): 9/10 so far

Scarface and There Will Be Blood are the two most quotable non-comedies to me. That adds to how memorable they are. There are tons of similarities between the two movies IMO. Both focus on guys who are obsessed with money/power and will destroy all those around them on their path until they snap and go berserk at the end. They both have powerful music that guide the films, including intense scenes where nothing is happening except the intense look on the main character's face with said powerful music.

I would imagine popular opinion is something in the ballpark of 6-7 out of 10 rating, predictable, gimmick theme, etc and to some extent you're at least somewhat right.

... but ...

This movie to me is 8.5-9 out of 10, easily. Highly entertaining beginning to end; the "B Movie" level characters plays their roles with professional level performance, and overall, it's just a fast-paced, couple twists and turns here and there, surprising blink of an eye appearances from cult favorites (such as Gibson and Chris Rock).

Damn good movie. Never got enough credit or buzz.

I probably overrate Falling Down and am probably a bit biased but I give it 8/10, easy.

This is my mom's favorite Douglas movie, hands down. The "brief case" scene gets an automatic laugh from her, no matter what.





Love and Basketball: 8/10

Sanaa Lathan looks literally like an angel in this flick. A competitive, jump shot shooting, charge taking angel, who's temper sometimes gets her in trouble on the basketball court. Omar Epps plays her love interest, who's also a baller himself, and the way they evolve as people throughout the movie with their respective families was really touching.

This movie's "style" had that "made for tv" feel at times, but the central story never really gets too complicated or thought provoking anyway. It just does a great job of handling black people and family life during the 80s as simply that; PEOPLE, who have ups and downs, and highs and lows like everyone else.

Seven psychopaths 8/10

A brilliant thriller from the writer of "In Bruge" Sam Rockwell proves himself as one of the most under rated actors out there. Brilliant plot twists with solid writing all the while poking fun at cliches. Well worth watching!

21 Jump Street - 7/10

I love films that relish of their ridiculousness, but not forgetting the human elements of the story. Overall direction was very good. Chase scenes are standouts. Quite surprised with the level of violence of the shootout in the hotel.

Zero Dark Thirty - 8.5/10

Very well done film. I was actually born in Abbottabad and have been back many times, the latest being in 2010. They did a great job of portraying Pakistan, even though it was filmed in India for those parts. Some small parts were inaccurate like which language was being spoken in Abbottabad and also that it's more like a 3 hour drive from Islamabad to Abt, not 45 minutes lol.

The shootings in Khobar, Saudi Arabia in the film are also very real and I remember living in Saudi at the time when that happened. Our compound's American population took a nosedive as everyone moved their families out.

Jessia Chastain was breathtaking. Freaking gorgeous but cold blooded at the same time.

As for the torture, I like how this exposes the CIA a bit to the general public. The water boarding was hard to watch, but it was necessary. The whole rhetoric of being the country of moral stature and freedom is really all bullshit from the government. I don't believe that a whole lot has changed either since Obama's come into power. Sure it's harder but Americans torture and kill people around the world every single day...and the general populace is clueless to it all.

Couldn't help but also think that this whole mess that has ensued in the middle east is very much in part because the U.S. has put itself in a position to make these lunatics want to attack them. Afghanistan and Iraq have to be two of the most embarrassing campaigns in military history for a superpower nation.

Good film overall. Freaking idiots were laughing at the most serious parts...like when the family inside the compound were being shot...or when the guy was like "Osamaaa" as he was looking for him. Shameless uncultured and misinformed American youth
