Watchmen - 7.5-8/10

Visually were great, especially on blu-ray.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

8-9/10. I really liked the plot and the development of the apes' society in the 10 years between the 1st and second films. The war and fight scenes were really good IMO.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

4-5/10. Plot was silly. I liked the special effects and Stanley Tucci's character. Oh and Nicola Peltz (Mark Wahlberg's character's daughter) is so hot

Aliens on the big screen last night. Totally awesome. Still holds up. Using shadow and smoke hides whatever imperfections are in the creatures, and in a lot of ways wind up looking more real than a lot of current CGI work. The whole thing just still works.

If anything I'd say there are parts where Sigourney Weaver us a little clunky. But for the most part she's great. And the building of suspense is great, especially when it's considered an action movie compared to Alien.

There are high-quality torrents available for it.

I watched it a few weeks ago. It's weird, but definitely worth seeing.

the fisher king - 8/10

Hadn't seen this before as I normally can't stand Robin Williams but I got around to watching it the other day. Good movie. I'd recommend it.

Are the other planet of the apes movies any good? I've seen the original and the crap 90s remake but are the latest ones decent?

Anyone knows if Elite Squad(Tropa de Elite) part 1 and part 2 are plot-wise connected? Or can I firstly watch part 2 and then when the download is finished part 1 without missing out on anything?

The Squid And The Whale- 6.8/10

Has some good performances and had some pretty heavy themes that are very unapologetic with how they are portrayed which I appreciated. It was a very bizarre family individually and as a unit but somehow that gave them more believability.

The film has a dark, quirky kind of humor that is somehow lost by the middle half and became last interesting in the final act. Also, even though the characters were intriguing, they were miserable and shady people. This movie seems to condemn the artist, writer type of people as those who are always searching for meaning and contentment, their 'place' so to speak, even (perhaps especially) the adult figures. I think that notion is somewhat accurate but it makes you feel kind of crappy seeing these people hurt each other and be so selfish so while it was well crafted and the first half was well-scripted, I can't say it's terribly enjoyable, more like kind of depressing. If you like those types of off-kilter film examinations that give no apologies for what it is, this will probably be worth your time.

Jeff Daniels plays such an obnoxious prick in this movie.
