Out of the Furnace

watched this today, 6/10

so much pretensions. the director really wanted this to be an american classic of sorts, but the slew of religious motifs, political insinuations cannot mask the fact the movie really doesn't have anything profound to say

It looked like a horrible CGI crapfest to me. Not surprised to hear terrible reviews.

Just watched this and loved it. Actually had some decent twists and turns for a home invasion slasher among a few other things, knew it got pretty good reviews for a horror flick but didn't want to get my hopes up. Start of it had some of that creepiness that reminded me of The Strangers too.

Can understand somebody not feeling it tho. In it's defense the plot is about people invading a house with animals masks, ridiculous was probably unavoidable before things even got started

McConaughey is a very good actor, he just made poor decisions on which roles to take in the past. He has been on a roll recently.

12 Years A Slave: 8.5/10

Very powerful and brutal. Ejiofor and Fassbender both did some award-worthy work here and the supporting cast were mostly great. I didn't know much about the kidnapping industry during Slavery, it's crazy to think that happened to many people- One day you're living your life the next you're someone's property. I still think that 'Black movies' need to become more diverse than the hackneyed domestic help/slave and buffoon paradigm, but this was a very well-made film and should do well come award season.

I think my only real issue with the film could be viewed as a nitpick but... why did the dialogue consist largely of Shakespearean verse? That really threw me off- I could understand Northup since he was a free man and clearly well-educated, but the life-long slaves who were intentionally and systematically kept ignorant? I'm not saying that it should've been forced 'slave lingo' ala Roots, but it was still very odd.

7.5/10

I liked it, I thought it was very entertaining but it did leave me disappointed. I was just expecting more. I thought it was a bit slow at times. All the characters were entertaining but I didn't really attach to any one of them. Overall it was entertaining, but it ended up being disappointing for me.

pretty much agree. definitely had its comedic moments though with some quick wit with JL's rationalisms, bale's mannerisms and the back and forth between louis ck and cooper's character. honestly, cooper's character might have impressed me the most. he was on point in this movie.

overall, very good movie but production seemed a bit rushed. good skeleton but i think it could have been made even better with a denser, more provoking plot.

Infernal Affairs 8/10, had no idea The Departed was a remake of this movie. You could definitely see the similarities. Pretty cool. Subtitles tho.

American Hustle - 7/10

Add me to the list of guys that was a tad disappointed.

Characters were great in this film...really connected with them as well...but there story was just lacking for me. It just wasn't that interesting and didn't have "that moment" I was waiting for the whole flick. Still a solid movie, but the hype surrounding it was waaaay too much imo.

Catching Fire - 9/10
Holy crap this was far better than the first one. Really well done film and Lawrence is great as Katniss.

Frozen - 7.5/10

Pretty good for a non-DW/Pixar/Miyazaki animated film. Had lots of good laughs and an easy story.

Seriously, I thought it was great. Lots of action and meaningful drama. I thought it was a lot different than the first one, which was more like a 6/10 for me.
