The Campaign. Every bit as awful as I was expecting and didn't even finish it. Will Ferrel needs to just do serious films because he's much better in those.


I didn't think it was terrible. Pretty forgettable though.

Sure. But first Anchorman 2. Which comes out this year.

I saw Dredd. It was fine but the hyperviolent stuff was freaky and the movie would've been better without it.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

True Romance.

Tarantino with the Tony Scott directing. Fun and certainly a highlight in the dim lighted career that is of Christian Slater.

Lords of Salem - Extremely fucking weird. It's like watching a Rob Zombie music video with random scenes and imagery that make pretty much no sense. That said, I did enjoy it, it's a fun watch that will leave you saying WTF a ton.

Just watched it for the 2nd time. Definitely a great one. I'd put it as my 2nd favorite Tarantino directed flick after Pulp Fiction.

Lincoln was good. Not insanely so, but good.

That reminds me... I always like to look up historical accuracy with movies like that. Need to do it for this one.

There were some reported inaccuracies in Lincoln with mistakes in which state reps coted yay or nay.



Killing Them Softly.

I liked it a lot. Really good performance from Brad Pitt.

I really liked the movie though. Out of all the comic book movies from last year this was easily the best one IMO.

I enjoyed Dredd quite a bit as well. Wasn't really sure what to think of it when it was first announced, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

Also, I thought this thread was about "Movies that Surprisingly DIDN'T suck"? There seems to be quite a few movies that DO suck in here. To that end, I haven't really seen a movie that fits that description lately.

"The last movie you saw" is a long-running thread series. Whoever made this one was just very uncreative and reused the title of the last one. Before that it was, "They're coming to get the last movie you saw, Barbara!", and before that it was something else entirely. The "didn't suck" part has never been relevant.

EDIT: In fact, if you look at the first page, you can see people complaining about the thread title.

Oblivion was so disappointing because it had all the right elements of an epic except the script. It's pretty good up to about halfway, with the premise being interesting in its own right and the visuals/Cruise carrying the film. Sadly, the twist is shockingly paper thin and can be guessed within the first ten minutes of the film (especially if you've already seen the movie
Spoiler
). I would still say give it a view for being a quality sci-fi flick (not overly flashy or unbelievable), which tend to be rare these days.

Saw Oz tonight with my gf. Was not impressed. The visuals were great but Franco was annoying and Kunis didn't help much. Plus the story felt like a hot mess for a while.

....are you fucking serious? It wouldn't even be Dredd without violence.

I totally agree. Kunick was a wooden plank through the movie. I got my wife to see it with me then we went to the theater to see the show Wicked two weeks later. Wicked destroyed it.

A History of Violence is one of the few examples of a movie outperforming the graphic novel. Speaking of Viggo, what in the hell happened to that guy? I haven't seen him in anything since Eastern Promises (which everyone should see as soon as possible).

The Amazing Spiderman was good. Felt a bit long and somewhat melodramatic, but still faithful to the source (or at least what I remember from reading the comics).

I wasn't a big fan of Amazing Spider-Man. I don't get the praise it gets. Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 and both better acted and developed films. Maybe the sequel will be better, but I wouldn't bank on it with Dr. Manhattan/Mr. Freeze Jamie Foxx.

I'm not a fan of Spiderman period, so to me each take on the franchise were equally ok. I did feel like this was more of a teenage angst movie though lol.

Evil Dead really hit the spot, I must say. I also watched Sinister last and thoroughly enjoyed that as well.

Everybody says its inspired/based on ultimate spiderman, but that isn't angsty at all.

Watched that yesterday, I really enjoyed the Evil Dead, hope theres an unrated version out as I felt the movie was pretty tame compared to the first red band trailer I saw.

So is Sinister worth checking out then? I watched the Possession, while not scary it was well acted for me, also has anypne seen v/h/s?
