Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

After about 20 minutes of the Russian Ark movie I had to stop. It is painfully boring. It you love artsy movies and understand Russian culture and history this is the movie for you.

I'm sure this is a fun movie to watch for a certain crowd but unfortunately this movie isn't for me.

Flight - 8/10

Damn. DDL is locked to win the Oscar but I'm far more moved by Denzel's performance.

"The Fly" from the 1980's, creepy ass movie and Jeff Goldblum is a fantastic actor. 8.4/10 for you, but a 9.5 out of 10 for me because I am highly biased towards horror.

(Though the Fly isn't reallllyyyy horror, more sci-fi, I still put it in that category.)

Life of Pi - 8.5/10

Really enjoyed it and it had some nice visuals. Should win an award for that at least.

It is generally considered body horror, which Cronenberg is a master of.

Interesting, I've never heard the term 'body horror.' The make-up effects in The Fly are so wonderful. The CGI today doesn't hold a candle to the make-up and creativity they used to use.

Killer Joe.

Pretty f*cked up, especially the end there. Decently entertaining but nothing special. 6/10, when you're bored and need to kill time type movie.

Killing Them Softly - just not very good at all. Forces its political message and the scenes full of James Gandolfini's ramblings were overwrought, boring, and completely immaterial. No character development, no interesting characters. Just blah. It's not garbage, but it's a 5/10 at best.

This weekend I watched 2 movies

django unchained - was semi decent up until samuel jackson was in it, he was terrible, over acting and annoying. Usual tarantino rubbish though that relies on violence and shock to make kids like it. 4/10

hitchcock - pretty good movie. Already liked the old pyscho so that was a plus for me. They could have cast hitchcock better as he just acted like hopkins the whole movie. 7/10

If you're a Cronenberg fan, I definitely recommend his interviews and the book Cronenberg on Cronenberg. He's one of the most interesting directors to listen to talk about his own work, because he usually has so many ideas underneath what he shows on screen.

I got to see him talk about two years ago when A Dangerous Method came out.

That sounds cool. I will look into those things on youtube. I never get around to reading books for fun though.
