It didn't gut punch me in the way I was hoping, but it was a masterful movie in every way. It was pretty f*cking perfect and I wouldn't change anything about it.

I don't really have much more to say about it without spoiling things, but I'd talk about it with anyone that has seen it.

I disagree with Thorpe about the montage stuff. There was only 3 montages that I can think of between Theodore and Samantha, the pizza one, the beach, and the cabin... They also had the double date. Those were necessary for the progression in the relationship, at the end they went away together like a trip to a B&B that you'd only make once you were super serious. I think they were integral, and it maybe could've used another.

Spoiler:

The AI evolved so fast and rapid that they just couldn't co_exists with the Humans anymore. The example she uses when she says "the letters are at infinite distance" is because Samantha now is so evolved that she is waiting years of AI life to finish a short sentence with him

Furthermore, she was really his first. But over time Samantha needed to satisfy the need for information and her vast superiority by engaging with other humans at the same time. Therefore, over the time she evolved and she started being the OS of many other people.

In the end, the AI realised they are just billions of times smarter and faster than humans and had to leave.

I do believe, like I said above, that Samantha was born at his house, but went to be the OS of more people because she needed more challenge.

Toy Story 3. My two year old loved it. She gave it a 10/10.

I give it a 6.

Kick-Ass 2 - 8/10 I enjoyed this more than the first one for some reason.


I don't know why but I really wanna see that Mother Russia chick naked.

There's something about her in this movie that makes me want to bang her.

Hit girl looked cute too! No pedo

Jake Gylynthal (however you say his name) was absolutely amazing .

He played his character perfect and Loki seemed like a real person to me. Hopefully we have other Movies about Loki and the crimes he works on.

Terrance Howard was Solid and Hugh Jackman was intense.



I love the "crime thriller" genre....If you liked Prisoners also check out Zodiak another great Movie.

I loved Prisoners too. It was actually my 2nd or 3rd favorite movie of 2013. I call it a rich man's Zodiac. It was everything that Zodiac was supposed to be and it did it masterfully (and actually had a climax..seriously wtf Zodiac).

I would say Prisoners was a deeply emotional and haunting noir thriller. I love how the movie raises moral questions about torture warranted for people who you THINK are guilty? Jackman justifies it, but Jake plays things by the book. Definitely agree that there was great acting from everyone here. We are left guessing until the end and get a wonderful pay off once you see the full story. Creepy how real this story can be and how everything connects seamlessly. It also had a highly tense atmosphere and great pacing IMO. The only downfall is that it is so dark and brutal, it may be difficult for people to watch. Also for some reason, never felt like a truly great film to me, but definitely a very good one.

White Men can't jump. Both Snipes and Harrelson had a great chemistry together. And snipes at 5'9" (5'10.25" in shoes) was able to dunked the ball, and Woody was also a good shooter.



It's one of my favorite basketball movies.

Its very hard finding good information on upcoming or categories of existing foreign films.

What made this movie for me was the kid and how he becomes an adult to all the people he comes in contact with.

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly 1966


Almost 3h but hours well spent, such a great movie even tough it was made 48 years ago. I'm not that much into westerns but this was fantastic, no wonder it is considered one of the greatest movies ever made. The fact that i got the 720p version also helped.


Clint eastwood such a great actor, and the guy that played the ugly, Eli Wallach will be 99 this year, and from what i read he is in good condition. Everybody should watch this great movie.


10/10

The whole Man with No Name trilogy is great. Real man's movies. Love the second one. And this is one of my all time favorite scenes:
