lincoln (2012)

good movie, interesting movie, professional movie... no denying those things. everything about it was fully competent and well-crafted. most people should like it.

what prevents me from hitting the same high notes the critics did is that the film simply did not move me in any particular area. neither the acting, production, historical insights, dramatic peaks, philosophical zingers, spontaneous adoration / loathing for any particular character... yea, just a long golf clap from me, sorry. also, this film was just a little too long and had too many cameos from characters who were virtually interchangeable. better photographic, directorial and mood framing might have helped make things more engrossing.

personally i would have enjoyed this better as a docu-drama. as in, cram more history in there and use the acted bits to portray key points, like a long history channel production without as much BS.

the plight of african-americans in history is certainly of interest to me, but in terms of that era, i'm more partial to a film like "glory." that one was certainly not as seminal a film, but was surging with emotional energy that really lit up the historical points being made.

still... quality is quality. 3.5 / 4 stars

Man of Steel (2013)
3/10

Honestly one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Awful dialogue, poor story line, cliche after cliche, over use of CGI with over the top action and Henry Cavill is truly an awful actor. Completely wooden.

The film sucked!

American Hustle 8/10

I liked it, but expected to love it so it was a small let down.

The Place Beyond the Pines 8.5/10

I enjoyed this movie more than I expected. The trailer leads you to believe what the movie is really all about, but the movie goes beyond that. It's broken up into 3 sections or acts. I've seen similar stories as this movie that were quickly forgotten but days later and I'm still thinking about this movie.

Superman Returns - 2/10

Shit dragged on forever, BORING as fvck, little to no action in a movie about fvcking SUPERMAN!. Same stupid land scheme plot for Lex, superman has a kid? lol what? Only reason this gets a 2 is because of that airplane scene.

A Cockwork Orange (1971)








Some previews got me pretty hyped for it, but, meh.



It's not that I hate brutal movies, tell me as much as you want about some meaning for psychology, but ultimately, it all was a bit pointless IMO. More so celebrated brutality...



6.5-7/10







American Psycho (2000)






Similar to Clockwork Orange, although I liked this one more... it's just the first Impression. I often change my opinion about it in the future, perhaps after having watched it a 2nd or 3rd time...



Bale was fantastic in this one. Read they also looked for Di Caprio, Brad Pitt, and/or Tom Cruise to play the role, but Bale did a fine job.



7-7.5/10
