Snowpiercer 7.5/10

Kind of disappointing. There were parts I loved, and parts that were pretty dumb, with the whole being likeable, but not something I loved.

Riddick 7/10

i liked this if it had a low budget which it seemed like. special effects reminded me a little Dune'sh and low budget. but i was into it...my major complaint was the inconsistency of the real threat which was pretty stupid how OP they were at one point then not so OP later. also Riddick's actions were sort of dumb but i liked how he OP he was too in this. i'm probably rating it higher than most would but it came out of nowhere on pay channel where i watched it w/ no hype so i was expecting something really bad....i was entertained.

Pretty funny. More of a light dramedy than anything. My biggest issue is how the FVCK is Jon Favreau gonna pull both ScarJo and Sofia Vergara? Can't suspend disbelief for that one. Don't watch this on an empty stomach by the way. Food porn.

7/10

I had exactly the same reaction. And I think I scored it in the same ballpark. I can't put my finger on weather or not it was more me just being disappointed, of if it was legitimate problems. Some stuff felt really legitimate to me as just not being done very well. Did you see it on a big screen? I noticed it was available on Amazon.



I finally checked out Under the Skin. Found that on Amazon too. I'd give it something low to mid 80s. I wouldn't say I was disappointed, it was just so ****ing weird, even by my standards, which are pretty weird. It totally felt alien. It also felt like it came from a different time in film making. The super natural filtering, combined with the expansive sort of setting shots. And it went long long stretches with no dialogue at all. I think I enjoyed the weirdness though. And I could a lot of people liking it a lot less.

ScarJo once again, like Lucy, which I didn't like, seems to have made this more interesting than it may have warranted by pulling off this sort of inhuman blankness. I loved her early dialogue sequences with guys, where she's just sort of mirroring what they're saying, and looking at them. Like she's figuring out how to use her sexuality at a really rapid pace, which fit because as an actress she seems to be at an apex in terms of using her sexuality, and it's not about being hot exactly, which she is plenty, but in this you're getting full nude shots of her, and she's by no means model flawless, but she understands how to express her sexuality incredibly at the moment. It may be odd that I find that to be the case in two movies where she's playing something not entirely human. But she seems to be great right now. I hope she finds something that she can be great in. She's great in the couple Woody Allen movies she did, but they weren't things she was carrying completely. They were Woody Allen Movies.

Cold in July


Crime-drama about your average guy who gets sucked into a world of vigilante justice and corruption one night when he accidentally ices a home invader. Some people are comparing it to Blue Ruin, largely because the protagonist is awkward and nervous in his new world.

The plot is a little messy at times but I still enjoyed it.

7/10

Have you ever seen Triangle? Similar movie IMO.


It felt like it was in the 80's to me ( the clothes/hair style /camera etc)...

which isn't a bad thing....



- I will check out "triangle" soon....I do enjoy these type of films. ( Momento, Jacobs ladder,the Machinist etc)

Tracks




"A young woman goes on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog."

Pretty decent flick. Reminded me a little bit of Into the Wild, only not so sad.

Where did you see this? Is it in theaters or on VOD? I've been really interested in this for a while.

It's on piratebay, so lots of other places too.

Coherence


Mind-bending movie. It's about a group of friends having a dinner party on the same night that a comet is passing the Earth, and all kinds of weird shit starts happening, presumably because of the comet.

Starts out benign enough, with phones and the internet not working, but pretty quickly progresses to a case of alternate realities running concurrent to one another. The characters discuss quantum mechanics to help get you thinking outside the box, but the premise is driven home when one character explains the Schrodinger's Cat paradox.

It can get a bit dense, but I was able to follow it fine. Really good alternate reality/time loop/paradox flick.

8.5/10

Lars and the Real Girl

Strangest concept for a film I've ever seen but very good acting all around, especially from Ryan Gosling. His character is a socially inept man who may be lonely who buys a sex doll and pursues a regular relationship with her/it.

8.5/10

Has anyone seen Inbetweeners 2 yet? If you have don't tell me what happens or the jokes/funny bits

On my laptop:

Ali
Rating: 8.5/10
Comments: Didn't understand the focus on Muhammad Ali's love life with his wives. I felt it could have gone further until his last fight with other tad bits of the story taken out.

In theaters:

Wolf of Wall Street
Rating: 9/10
Comments: Mind blowing. Probably the best film I've seen in awhile.

Sex tape.

6/10.

Some really funny moments, especially in Rob Lowe's house when they're doing lines.
