Rocky III - 4.5/5 - I think the Rocky movies are better when spaced apart by weeks, months, years. Rather than watching them daily. It becomes too familiar, they obviously weren't made to be watched that way.

I did all 6 during the course of a sick day, don't regret it at all. I was raised on Sly and Arnie films, I can get through even some of the crappier ones.

Ya don't get me wrong I still enjoy them a lot, it just feels that Sly's vision for the films works better when viewings are spaced apart. Watching one after another each day they feel more of the same than they actually are.

Gravity - 7/10

 

Just became too predictable. This is the movie: everything is fine>something bad happens>everything is fine>something bad happen

 

Repeat that for the whole movie.

Hmm, Gravity. I don't know, sort of agree that predictability became a problem.

Spoiler

 

Elements like the dead daughter story were also weak. 

 

Think the biggest opportunity missed was that in the beginning of the movie they emphasized silence and lack of sound in space, but when the action got going, it was all obnoxious music playing over every movement. Some parts would have been terrifying in pure silence, but yeah, just another director who doesn't have the balls to rip sound in a space movie. 

 

The first 20 minutes are very,very gripping, though.

Gravity - I loved it.  Everything about it was fantastic.  Bullock did a great job and Clooney was fine for his part.  The special effects and cinematography were outstanding.  This is the first movie since Avatar that was worth the price to see in 3D.

Watched the Fiend without a Face last night, though I kinda skimmed over the exciting parts ie the end, cause I was kinda sleepy. It's pretty slow and plodding, but it's an alright movie. I do wonder about a continuity error regarding the female character's hair.

Besides this is the fiend:

It's also seen in the Shin Megami Tensei series, but it's named Omoikane, after a Shinto god of intelligence.

Watched The Fountain, cool artistic move with an amazing score. Truth be told, I listen to Film Scores Radio on Pandora all day at work and it was the music from the movie that caused me to watch the movie. 

 

Another incredible movie that is much less known is Sunshine. I highly suggest it especially for everyone that has been checking out Gravity.

This Is The End - I thought it was just ok, nowhere near as funny as people make it out to be.  Danny McBride was the best part and he wasn't in it enough.  The only part I really laughed at was when Danny and Franco were talking about jerking off.  I guess it doesn't help that I don't find Jonah Hill funny at all.

Yup, I watched sunshine when it was in theaters. Mainly only AMCs showed it as part of their indie selection. They used to always have a screen dedicated to indie type movies. But with the effects you wouldn't know it. Maybe just because they couldn't get major studio support behind it. Went with a few girls who hated it, but I still enjoy it. Got it on Bluray, the music in the epic scenes is fan-freaking-tastic with a great sound system.

And somehow, even the lame attempt with the dead daughter story didn't make me care about her more.

Saw Rush yesterday with my dad. Thought it was okay but a whole lot of stuff left out, definitely could have been much better. 5.5/10

Thanks for the spoiler. It's great to know someone's daughter is dead or will be dead. And now that I quoted you, I saw your other spoiler. Wonderful.

The daughter thing isn't really a spoiler, lol, it's part of the premise.

 

Anyway, the movie is entirely visual. There's really nothing to spoil. If you've ever seen a movie you'll know how this one is going to end after about 15 minutes or so.

Saying that every time something bad happens it turns out ok, and this repeats the entire movie, is a spoiler. So I'll watch the movie, something bad will happen like Sandra drifting away from the ship out into space but at the last second she will get rescued. Then some part of the ship will breakdown, look like it's the end for them, but they will somehow get it working again. That is a spoiler. You've told people what is going to happen before they got to see it for themselves.

So...do you think everyone's going to die a half hour in or something?

There's only 2 people up there and both are played by big name actors. Plus, the whole point of the movie is thrilling near-death in the vaccum of space. Like Planetes only less quirky and no terrorists. What exactly did you expect?

I kind of felt the same way though I did like it a bit more. The opening party scene could have been a little longer with even more cameos, or at least longer conversations.

People did make it out to be like the funniest movie of all-time, which it's not. I did like it much better than Pineapple Express though.

I was really looking forward to watching the movie and I didn't know anything about it's plot other than there are people in space desperately trying to get back to Earth. I didn't care to know bad stuff happens and it always turns out ok. That's like watching a football game when you already know the score and outcome.

 

Or maybe one of them dies, but now I know they'll be ok! I didn't know it only had 2 actors and I've seen other movies where big time actors die. Movie would've been a helluva lot better if I didn't know all this shit beforehand.

You're really giving the plot a lot more credit than it deserves.

 

It's on par with any other disaster movie. The focus of this movie is easily the visuals, I don't think anyone would say otherwise.

It was pretty obvious from the trailers and TV spots (as well as the genre conventions) what was going to happen and how many characters there were. Hell, I myself have not seen the movie and have no desire to (I liked it better when it was called Planetes) and I was able to tell that just from the trailer.

If you are watching the movie, you are going to see thrilling danger sequences in the vaccum of space. If you are non-plussed during said sequences, that's the director's fault, not anyone here.
