watched the first Captain America movie last night because I am seeing Winter Soldier today...honestly, I thought it was pretty decent. That is probably due to the fact that my expectations were so low after hearing about how awful the movie is over and over.

It wasn't amazing or anything, but it wasn't awful either...

6.5/10




also watched Wolf of Wall Street recently...honestly I feel like this movie is overrated...it isn't on the same level as Goodfellas or Casino...a guy gets rich on Wall Street, gets fcked up on drugs, then loses it all, THE END...not much of a story to be honest. This movie is more or less just a comedy, and I understand the appeal to it but it the core of this flick we are just supposed to go "WOW" at this guy's money while having a few chuckles, there isn't anything deep about it.

anyway...still give it a

7.5/10


it IS a good movie, just not on the level of awesomeness that many say it is...

X-Men: The Last Stand

7/10

Sad movie It was better than I thought, reviews suggest it was a bad movie, but I thought it was pretty decent. X2 is still the best in the series.

They do this with lots of movies, but here is a nice breakdown of many things that make it pretty darned bad (obviously most of these are nitpicky, but some are pretty bad): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hamvx0huBzs

Edit: Clip ignores many things. Phoenix's motivation sucked. Why did she stand and watch the whole battle until the end when she could have dominated from the beginning (Worst battle strategy ever for the sake of having visuals on screen). Also, it was incredibly dumb to kill off Cyclops just to force a Wolverine/Jean Grey romance.

We Are What We Are

Trailer

Horror/drama about a family which practices a certain...secret tradition, which has been passed on for generations. It begins to unravel though when the wife dies, storms bring flooding, and the teenage daughters aren't all that keen to play ball anymore.

It's a bit of a slow-burner but doesn't feel slow, if that makes sense. The soundtrack does a great job of adding weight to the whole thing, like an ominous albatross or something. Solid acting, especially by the two girls. Creepy moreso than it is scary, it did a good job of getting under my skin and I was genuinely shocked at one point.

7.5/10

Wow they have just a few good points in that clip and the rest is all ignorant, childish , attention whoring HATING! Seriously? The guy hates on "Cyclops having trouble with water" and the water hose scene? Who has time to even get annoyed by that?

I really need to figure out a way to go see Grand Budapest.

I really dig Wes Anderson too. Although I didn't like Moonrise as much as I think I was supposed to.

My favorite WA film ever is actually Fantastic Mr. Fox, which I swear I could watch on a loop.

I realized that when watching the clip (I thought that clip had more good points, but that must have been a different one), which is why I went back and edited with some things that actually bugged me more than what was said in the clip.

The Machine

Trailer

At some point in the future, the West is engaged in a cold war with China, and a British robitics department is hoping their research into artificial intelligence will turn the tide.

He/they have already developed brain implants which restore cognitive function and other shit for soldiers with brain trauma, which eventually results in loss of intelligible speech(more on this in a sec); making a full-on, sentient robot is the next step.

For a low-budget flick, the general quality is actually very good. Nice effects, and once the action kicks in it's pretty good as well. The soundtrack hearkens back to stuff like Blade Runner, and newer stuff like Mass Effect if you've played it.

About the speech thing; it might seem bizzare at times that two characters would be talking in a "language" we can't understand without being subtitled but this is apparently by design, and makes sense at a certain point.

Anyhow, it's good sci-fi. Almost feels like a prequel so I'd be down for a sequel but I doubt we'll get it.

8/10

Moonrise Kingdom is my favorite of his stuff.
I didn't like it as much as most of his other stuff, yea felt like a romp, still had his usual aesthetics and attention for detail but lacked heart of moonrise or melancholy of darjeeling or tenenbaums or slacker quality of battle rocket. Actually probably one of my least favorite favroite wes film. felt like artifice instead of genuine picture
