But, I was really lost in his performance with this movie. That's my biggest compliment to a well known, overexposed actor. Do I forget I'm watching Bale over the course of the movie and start to actually believe him as his character?

In this one, I completely did get lost in his performance.

It was a well done film, pretty much all the way around. Maybe not Best Picture worthy, only because the topic and the tone didn't really lend itself to that kind of normally serious award.

But, thoroughly entertaining I thought.

The fact that it is a well thought-out and contemplative film makes it all the more upsetting. The Human Centipede and other gore films are so vapid that they lose a lot of their horror. Some of the scenes in Salo, though, are downright painful to watch.

I definitely suggest you give the film a try at some point in your life though. And if you really don't think you can stomach it (which is completely reasonable), check out some of Pasolini's other films (The Gospel According to St. Matthew and Accattone are his best).

Bale is a good actor is just that people see him more as Batman than anything.

Captain Phillips - 8.9/10

An action packed and extremely intense story that was brilliantly done.

More of the same, I'm a sucker for handheld camera type stuff though.

heard about 100 opinions of how great this film is. for some reasons the only time i got to watch it i stoped at 10m. probably it has to do with the language, and the fact i hate asian movies ( all asia ).

Saw this gem on Netflix, it completely changed my view on Obama. I knew America did some shady stuff around the world to showcase their "World Police" power. But I had no idea the president himself had his personal unit of assassins that only answer to him and literally fly around the world trying to cross names off "the list", but end up killing women and children. Which they then try to cover up and deny. It's ****ing insane what goes on in the shadows. I realized Bush is Gandhi compared to Obama, can't believe I was fooled by his TV persona. "Hope and Change" my ass.

To The Wonder - 7.5/10

Terrance Malick's take on love in all it's forms. Like all of Malick's work, this is an absolutely beautifully shot film and is visual poetry. But with such a thin narrative and lack of plot, it's not very accessible to people who aren't fans of Malick. I love his work, and I really enjoyed this as well - it has powerful and beautiful moments. But it's certainly not for everyone.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones


Oh, hey! A different setting than white suburbia this time! Still sticking to the formula, but this one was more enjoyable than the last one.

6.3/10

Interesting as hell. Hated Tilda Swinton. Hell, didn't even know it was her. Haven't hated a character this much since Mrs. Carmody. Just a despicable POS.

They never explain what happened to the world in detail. They also hint at Wilford being somehow responsible or something.

The school scene was just bizarre.
