Escape Plan - Meh, 5.5/10. Watchable but I wouldn't make it a priority.

Yeah, I was disappointed too. I think I gave it like a 7/10. I thought it was a lot of fun at parts but it was much too long and wasn't effective enough at holding my interest for the full 3 hours. I thought it was kind of an interesting way to set up the storytelling from Jordan Belfort's perspective because it could be argued that the lack of structure/development was intentional. It kind of seemed like the movie intended to give viewers the experience of what it was like to be charmed by Jordan Belfort and inducted into his cult-like following.

Watched S1m0n3 (Simulation One) with Al Pacino in it, last night. The movie felt like it was something deep & genuine when I first watched it during the early 2000's. I watched it again last night, & meh, it felt like a B-Movie. With the way how they film movies now, I can see the holes they have now. Lame overused sound effects, obvious plot setup, etc.

Still good though, just a bit disappointed. It wasn't like I thought it would be when I first watched it.

Non-Stop


Pretty entertaining popcorn flick but got damn they were all over the place with the red herrings. After like the 27th slow, panning shot of a passenger ominously scowling it was clear their intent was just to cheaply make as many people seem suspicious as possible. The twist also felt kind of cheap to me.

It's like Taken on a plane, and I dig plane movies anyway.

6.5/10

The Return of the Living Dead. 10/10. Might be my favorite 80's horror movie and zombie flick overall. Great blend of comedy/horror, awesome zombies, awesome soundtrack. Even has scream queen Linnea Quigley.

Must watch if your a big zombie guy.

X-Men DOFP

8/10 for a comic-book movie. I was happy with it. I think they did a great job. My only problem was I was trying to understand the time travel plot point during the movie and I think I confused myself. It's a movie I'll have to watch again.

Cheap Thrills


Two friends desperate for money run into a rich couple at a bar, who just for shits and giggles start daring them to do things like get a chick at the bar to slap them, with the reward being like 200 bucks. The dares start off pretty innocently and fun, but progress in severity and cash value as the night goes on.

Some parts are downright gross but someone who has a wife, kid, no job, and is about to be evicted might be pretty desperate. A decent amount of dark comedy too. Kinda like that movie Would You Rather I saw recently(liked this better though).

6.3/10

The double. 8/10.

Really interesting premise, very well written, good acting across the board. It reminded me of Terry Gilliam's Brazil.
It's the kind of movie that will make you think and consider where your life is going and where we are headed as humans. Strongly recommended.
