Sucker Punch.

I liked it. Seems to be getting a lot of hate though. It wasn't the best movie ever, but it is far from the worst.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Ultraviolet - AKA Milla's Midriff. If you like midriffs, shallow acting, nonsenseical plots, and crappy special FX, watch this movie.

Nine 1/2 Weeks


This was the sexiest film until Basic Instinct came out.


It would be cool for a remake with Mickey Rourke reprising his role...or maybe not.

Fish Tank (Indie) Netflix Streaming - It is hard to look away as we are taken through a tough 15 year old girl's life in lower class England. Her life sucks, her Mom gets a new boyfriend and she becomes smitten with him as well. The film goes down some serious Jerry Springer territory but for real. A little slow in places but the lead actress really sells the part and the cinematography is like another character as the train wreck unfolds. 8/10


Fish Tank movie rox. Had to put it on widescreen stretch to get it to show w/o the sidebars, but it was worth deciphering the accents. The lead actress was someone they picked up off the street. No prior acting experience. Just a slice of british hood life. Best use of a Nas song in a movie ever. Strange thing is... Fassbender is just so likable, even as the train is wrecking.

Catfish- WTF. They couldnt have actually filmed that as it happened. I mean how sick was that? But it happens all the time I'm sure.

saw a crapton of movies during my break, I know im leaving out a few but this is what i can remember off the top of my head.

In the Line of Fire - 4/5
The Fighter - 4/5
Despicable Me - 3/5
Cop Out - 2/5
North Face - 3/5
Tron Legacy - 3/5 - Great music video, bad movie.

127 Hours - 3/5 - HATED the editing, very rarely you get a film that is edited in such a way that it actually annoys you. Didn't walk away feeling as if the movie said something bigger than a guy getting out a bad situation.

The Wild Hunt - 3/5 - LARP movie, guy tries to get gf back who is spending the weekend LARPing. There is some actual suspense between the warlock guy and the rest of the community. TBH I sorta wish there was more actual LARPing with the referees judging the battles.. because that was actually pretty interesting. The relationship between the girl and guy was definitely a throw away but since its set in such an interesting environment it maybe worth checking out if its streaming.

Pour Elle - 3/5 - Pretty solid french movie where a man's wife is being accused of murder. Recently The Next Three Days came out with Elizabeth Banks and Russell Crowe which is the american remake of this French story. In Pour Elle you have Diane Kruger playing the woman. Good story and suspense. The only complaint I have which happens a lot in movies like this is the amount of time spent planning. You never get to see the actors decide about the plan in a different way. Instead the husband hears a story, follows the steps and has his plan.

I just saw Jackie Brown for the second time. Saw it on release the first time.

I know the pacing is slow and there's some predictable characters in there, but the two leads are so strong that I think it's my favorite Tarantino flick. The scene in Jackie's apartment with Jackie and Max chatting over coffee makes the whole movie for me. Tarantino slides into genuine dialogue so easily -- it's not all his doing, I know, he's got great actors in the leads, but still. I just love that scene, it sets the characters up so well.

Jackie Brown's a nice reminder that, hey, this guy can write and direct a hell of a scene. It's what keeps me checking out his films (Kill Bill through Basterds) even though they're wearying for me.

Southland Tales - 2/5 - Hooo boy, this movie was bad. Like really bad. However, I was entertained for the film's duration (and it's a pretty long movie), so that has to count for something, right?

Both Great movies!!!!

I will use the rest of this space to continue my internet campaign to defend Sucker Punch. It was not nearly as good as I wanted it to be but it was also not nearly as bad as some reviews make it out to be either. I will say it's not a must see in the theater especially if you have a good home theater for when the blu ray comes out. Here lies the good and the bad in this movie. It is a movie screaming for an extended edition/directors cut!!! You just know someone complained about the length and left some character development out. Also I believe some of the fight scenes were probably cut short. Now this is all speculation on my part but if true I believe it will be an upgrade to the movie overall. On the other hand the theatrical release was a missed opportunity to make a really good movie. So if you've been waiting for this like me and want to go see it bad reviews be damned I think you'll enjoy it. If you were on the fence before I would have to say stay away and go the Netflix route.

Saw another movie working late last night: Galaxy Quest. The laughs are cheap, but they're still good. If you consider it an honorary "Star Trek" movie, I'd say it's in my top 3 or 4 favorite ST flicks. An even better compliment is that it's good enough to make me like Tim Allen, who I've never found funny in anything else.

The whole cast is great. And they really savor the low-hanging fruit. "By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings" is a great line. Rickman kills it. Or the Monk guy doing the "FYI" take on Scotty's she-can't-take-no-more bit. That's good stuff. Don't get me wrong, I know it's easy, but they keep it classy and funny.

From Paris with Love. Surprised at how much I enjoyed it perhaps because my expectations were so very low.

The Adjustment Bureau. I was pleasantly surprised.

Edit: Just got back from Sucker Punch. I was hesitant, but since I've wanted to see it for a long time I figured I'd try it. I just don't see where all of the hate is coming from, and I agree with Commander Zero that it probably has a lot of footage that can be added.

The Condemned - 4/10

I had little or no expectations especially since it's made by wrestlers... I did however find out Manu Bennett from Spartacus Blood and Sand is in it. Now that I look back on it though it has left a bad taste in my mouth. It reminded me a lot of a fail version of Death Race too.

Paul - A vulgarized E.T. with two healthy scoopfuls of nerd-baiting famous film quotes thrown in. I liked it, but definitely a matinee/cheap seats/wait-for-video flick.

Source Code - Despite the trailer, the movie turned out to be pretty good. They managed to make it plausible enough to work. Everything was better than average though the score didn't stand out very much. Highly recommended if you like thrillers with a scifi twist.

i hate to admit it but that last harry potter flick was decent definelty not as bad as the 4 that came before it and im actually interested in seeing the other half of it. could have done without the whole harry/heromine sexual tension and the bit with the horcroux porn aside from that it was an ok flick.

So I saw The Adjustment Bureau, Rango, Paul, and Limitless this month in theaters. the only one I disliked was Rango. Too long and didn't really care much for the characters. Paul is my favorite of these 4.
Also watched Interview With A Vampire on netflix. It was OK to me.

From Paris With Love - 4/10

Starts out with zero context. Not the best action scenes, but good enough, cliche suicide vest stand-off, and a granny politician I wanted to punch. John Travolta saved it.

Battle: Los Angeles - 2/10

Worst alien [and ship] designs, ever - way too mechanical with boring weapons. The escorted civilians did not add anything to these marines with hollow comrade acting. Cinematography was so amateur with forgetful action (Chinook convoy was the only good part, for 2 minutes). And for the love of god, stop casting Michelle Rodriguez as the lone-wolf female soldier/pilot - STOP IT.

Felt like I was watching a Marine Corps advertisement.

Wild Zero - A really campy Japanese movie with rock n roll guys being cool and zombies. Luckily it's self-aware enough to be funny. I can't comprehend how you might just stumble onto this movie and actually watch it though. I was recommended it so I went out of my way for it. Well, if you DO go against the odds and watch it, it's not a bad thing to casually watch.

Despicable Me- Pretty bland, too cutesy for me. Some funny parts but there really weren't enough laughs or anything else to make up for that lack of humor. It felt like they only made the movie to launch the whole "minions" thing.
