Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

I'm on Winter Break for the past week and a half (and will be for the next week and a half) so I've seen a shit ton of flicks

Roman Holiday 6.5/10

Old classic flick. Very simple and dull story. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck were both charming as hell doe

Kramer vs. Kramer 8.7/10

Really enjoyed that it was a very straightforward drama that allowed its screenplay and actors to carry the film. Hoffman was brilliant and Streep was great when she appeared. Also good performances by the kid and Hoffman's neighbor

The Graduate 8/10

Good movie but a little overrated. Def not an all-time great movie. Hoffman was again great but Anne Bancroft stole the show as the hot MILF. First half of the movie was great but the second half just was very mediocre

The Hustler 9.2/10

Great f*cking movie. Directed brilliantly and allowed Newman and Scott to both shine. Main actress was a little too method at times and overacted but the movie overall was amazing

Short Term 12 8.7/10

Very solid film with a great performance by Brie Larson to anchor it. She definitely should have been nominated for an Oscar last year. Overall, great but had a few moments that I felt like didn't add to the story

Wreck-it Ralph 9/10

Way better than Frozen and I was a lot more emotionally attached to the characters by the end. Def the best Disney animated film since Emperor's New Groove

Not rating a movie, but I just saw the 'Knight of Cups' trailer (late to the party) and thought I'd mention it here.

Gonna steal a comment from someone else on another forum because it sums things up well:

Quote:
If we're being serious for a second, I love the audacity Malick seems to have with this one. A 70 year old man, who up until this point has been seen by the public as this monk like recluse, delivering us something this perversely charged. I've been seeing the WOWS comparisons being thrown around a few places, and not that I didn't love that film, this approach to dealing with excess seems to be on a whole nother level. By going right into the heart of this **** and addressing a place he's tried to avoid for so long... Terry just keeps getting more and more personal with each film, to see an artist do that is the most inspiring thing I could think of, for his fans and those who aspires to create like him.

I don't care if I'll like it or not. All I know it I'm going to leave the cinema thinking (I've disliked every Malick film since Days of Heaven and I've thought about them much more than most of the films I do like)

I have been trying to get my g/f to watch it for a while now and she was convinced she wouldn't like it. Now she is ready for parts 2 and 3.

Die Hard, really? In what way do you enjoy it? They were re-running parts on Christmas over here, it's just an old action movie.


Watched The Wolf of Wallstreet in two sittings. 7.5/10, nothing really special, it didn't capture me, make me enjoy the story or anything. Just that naked women in there were really great. I'm gonna look up for gifs.

the prestige

saw this at a NYE party yesterday - very good film and may be my favorite from nolan. never been a big fan of christian bales' acting, and with good reason, as hugh jackman completely stole the show.

Exodus: Gods and Kings

7/10

For being billed as an epic it was surprisingly minimalist. However, beyond that it wasn't particularly flawed.

The imitation game - 7/10

I enjoyed the movie but I already knew quite a bit about Turing previously and the film has taken liberties with the facts and completely invented some parts of the film, left out major people who helped him to make it seem as if he broke the enigma machine all by himself and tried to make Turing into someone who was autistic when people at the time thought he was just a bit eccentric. They also glossed over all his other work and just how badly the government hounded him in his later life. Was an enjoyable film just isn't a good historical record.
