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.

Video Games: The Movie


I hate documentaries, but I figured I'd give this a shot as a long-time gamer. It chronicles the history of video games, from when they were just a handful of pixels to the present. After a while the whole thing felt like one big repetitive video game circle-jerk.

4/10

Pontypool


Pretty unique zombie flick. Takes place in a radio station as the zombie apocalypse first kicks off, and the few people in the station listen to it unfold and try to piece together exactly what's going on via people calling in on the radio and such, while also trying to run a professional show. You wouldn't think it but it managed to have a few scary moments, hearing someone's abject horror as they described what they were seeing.

6.5/10

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?

I'd suggest looking at the last several pages of this thread.

I'll give it a shot. Have you ever seen that shitty Day of the Dead film? It's a direct to dvd campy as fvck flick with Nick Cannon. Guilty pleasure. Saw it high and fell in love.

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?

Yes they are connected. You can watch the second one as a stand-alone, but you should really watch the first one first, otherwise you might not understand certain characters' motivation. It's really good too.

Just watch them in order.

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.
