Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

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.

I like that movie. I prefer David Fincher's old movies. I no longer get excited for his release.

This is how I rank his movies:
1. Fight Club
2. Se7en
3. The Game
4. Alien 3
5. Panic Room
6. Zodiac
7. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
8. The Social Network
9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (completely pointless and adds nothing of value by existing original)
