Old Boy remake - 8.5/10

Surprisingly good but I still put the original over it. I really thought it was going to be bad but it turned out good.

Josh Brolin looks like John Cena in this movie

I'd recommend Enough Said with James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Great film.

127 hours ( 2010 )


A biographical survival drama film with a simple plot and great reviews from critics and many awards * 138 nominations and 25 wins * James Franco was awesome, one of the best roles in recent years along with Milk and Sprink Breakers.

9/10

ender's game (2013)

this is probably a half-decent SF film if you're unfamiliar with the books. but for someone who loves the first book in particular, this movie just had nothing for me. pretty much just a bland hollywood green screen production... nothing new or interesting was added, and plenty of nuance was unfortunately lost.

the tone felt a little bit similar to gattaca. i'd certainly recommend that one instead.

2.5 / 4 stars.

Damn, that sucks. Didn't think it would make a good movie because I doubt they would capture the psychological nuance of Ender. I prefer Speaker for the Dead out of the books tho which would prob translate even worse to a major motion picture.

Cloverfield 6-7ish/ten. TJ Miller as the dude who holds the camera is pretty funny. Nothing groundbreaking but solid thriller/horror. Had some cool scenes.

rotten tomatoes has it at 61% among critics, but 71% among audiences. ender's game is probably an okay movie experience if you just want a 'standard' SF film with some interesting ideas, a bit of space opera, and pretty forgettable acting.


hard to say how SftD might turn out. it's a very different kind of film... sort of a drama / mystery / morality play more than a SF film. i could see it working out in the right director's hands, personally.

This. It flopped I think though so there probably won't be one. Seemed like they were setting it up for one. The later books because a chore but I was committed.

I've always been a bigger fan of enders shadow. I think it would make for a greater film. However like most books, it's made to be somewhat rated r. Which will never happen because of its main characters being children and the fact that people still erroneously think that they are YA novels.
