Elysium- 6/10

Movie was uneven but some things bothered me.

Props for a futuristic film in L.A. actually having Latinos in it not only did they have Latinos in it they were the majority.

They had good actors but the acting was shitty.

Also, why wasn't Elysium guarded better? mufuhkas invade it and where is the security forces? Where?!?!?

Many scenes left me

Action wasn't impressive, nothing stood out at all.

District 9>>> Elysium

Elysium just seemed half baked on many levels. Beginning with the script.

District 9= 8/10

Saw that a few weeks ago. I agree with your rating.


Watched Escape Plan recently. 7.5/10 The story was a pretty neat set up for an action movie, and the aspects of how Stallone escapes from prison are actually pretty clever. Overall, it has a late 80s/early 90s action feel to it, which is what I was expecting and hoping for, although certainly not on the level of the classics. Arnold is good with his one liners, Stallone sucks at his. And the ending was awkward. Stallone does a bad job of ending recent action movies and thinks they need a sappy tongue-in-cheek ending which just suck and don't fit with the tone of the rest of the movie (he did the same thing with Bullet in the Head, but this was better than that movie).

I prefer the classics like:

The Silence of the Lambs
Nosferatu
Alien/Aliens
Jaws
Frankenstein/Bride of Frankenstein and others like Dracula and The Invisible Man
The Shining
The Birds
Night of the Living Dead

As for newer ones:

Shaun of the Dead
Shadow of the Vampire
Saw
Planet Terror
Audition
The Ninth Gate
Dawn of the Dead
Cabin in the Woods

Just seen "Captain Phillips" with my family. It was intense. Great acting by Hanks. The black guys did a good job too.

Captain Phillips - 8.5 / 10

Interesting story line as well. Finally they made a pirate movie.

Hunger - 9/10

Wow - this is Steve McQueen's first feature film. About Bobby Sands and the second IRA Hunger Strike. This is one of the most intense/brutal films I've seen, but it was also beautifully shot. Michael Fassbender was incredible as Bobby Sands.

Coffee Town. Pretty good comedy, made by college humor or produced by them I guess. Had Dennis from Always Sunny and Stevie from Eastbound and Down also Jean Ralphio or w.e from Parks and Rec who was hilarious in it. Made me laugh, few really funny parts.

Cloverfield was great. I enjoyed the different perspective. It was something new and thrilling at the same time.

Here Comes the Boom - 10/10,

A Biology teacher who fought in MMA to fund it's school music program. As a MMA fan myself, that was an awesome movie. MMA Personalities such Bass Rutten, Joe Rogan, Mike Golberg, Chael Sonnen, Mark DellaGrotte, Mark Munoz, Krzysztof Soszynski, BruceBuffer and many others are there. All in all an entertaining movie.

Have you seen any other Griffith films? If so, do you like any of them more?

Machete Directed by Robert Rodriguez

4/10


Hipster rubbish. Not worth watching. De'niro was poor in it too so that's saying something.
