Grabbers 7/10

Irish horror movie, that is kind of a comedy. Kind of along the lines of Tremors in that it is a monster movie/comedy.

Requiem For A Dream - 10/10

Probably one of the best movies I have ever watched. I just love everything about it. The way it was shot, the music, how depressing it is

Just fantastic.

The Returned


Trailer

One of the more unique zombie movies I've seen, this is a zombie movie without the zombies(you see literally like two of them), and is set in a world after a zombie outbreak 10 years prior to the events of the film. The government and medical fields have developed a drug that suppresses the zombie virus as long as it's administered within 36 hours of infection and taken once a day for the rest of peoples' lives.

When these people are given the green light to re-join society they're deemed "The Returned." It's something they all try desperately to keep a secret from everyone, as they become the targets of bigotry, discrimination, and people grow fearful of them. There are even anti-Returned extremists groups that take shit into their own hands.

The movie follows the story of a married couple; the husband is one of the Returned, and his wife is an uninfected zombie specialist/doctor/scientist, doing everything in her power to keep him alive.

Shit gets hairy though when the supplies of this drug start running out. The general population becomes even more fearful, and people who are Returned or who have loved ones whom are returned become even more desperate.

It's more of a look into the sociological/political aspect of the whole zombie thing than most if not all of its peers. Anyway, the only issue I really had with this one is that the acting was pretty meh. Otherwise it was solid. Just don't expect a typical zombie movie going in or you're sure to be disappointed.

7/10

Robocop 6/10

Gary Oldman carries this film with his acting chops, and emotional weight. It's fun seeing Keaton again, he's quirky and fun. Miss seeing him in films. But the guy who plays Robocop? Bland as hell.

It takes no delight or fun in the pure absurdity of the mere idea of the titular hero. It makes things too real to the point it becomes absurd. The original film is sci-fi satire that delivers great social commentary while indulging in the fun nature of a concept like a mechanized, identity crisis "Robocop"

This film? We get a whole 45 minutes of Murphy cognizant of himself, coming to grips with having a body that is made entirely of machine. Which is a very interesting concept. But throws it all away when they eventually delete his memory and turn him into full on emotionless robot.

Waists time. They could've been giving us balls to wall action. Fun, frightening, over the top villains like the original. Or showing Robocop busting skulls in Detroit. At least give us a REASON why the city of Detroit is corrupt, and crime ridden enough to even need a machine protecting it's endagered citizens.

Instead nothing. And an anti climactic, rushed ending. There were some very interesting moments, but on average the film was pretty boring. Robocop is about a man's training being a filter for a cyborg. He has a war with memories, subconcious, an identity crisis.

Only to end up combating his programing, and reclaiming his soul. His identity. From Robocop to "Murphy". The original '87 film had LOADS of heart. Even with it's now cute, but dated special effects.

This reboot was entirely "meh". It tries too hard at blatant on the nose social commentary, instead of subtelty, and letting it simmer beneath the fun surface like the instant classic original.

Gravity - 6/10

Don't get the hype around this movie. Nothing special. Everyone fell asleep or was bored to death.

Non-Stop

As an action movies it's a 8/10.

I'd rate it about 6.7 out of 10 in comparison to all films.

Liam Neeson is bad ass as usual. It's probably second to Taken. I enjoyed the entire movie. I'd probably go see it again if I had the time.

I saw that shit in the theater. Was sitting next to some black chick who was raging so hard and talking at the screen and shit. Like when the scene happened of that one dude ****ing up the boards in the house and saying "do it again ******" or whatever, the chick was getting seriously pissed and like "psssh, you're retarded!!!"

And I'm sitting there like damn, it's a movie, sit yo ghetto ass down.

Out of the Furnace 5.5/10

A dull overly depressing film. Superb cast but a missed opportunity. Expected much more.
