Saw Friends With Benefits last night and it was surprisingly pretty good. Everyone says that its the same movie as No Strings Attached but from the trailers this just looked better. It was funny and had some touching moments.

Loved Captain America; saw it twice already!

Netflix should have Dead Space Aftermath to me tonight, looking forward to that.

Predator 2 - Danny Glover in place of Arnold doesn't really work for me. Some impressive, over the top 80s gore though.

I'm halfway through the extended edition of Fellowship of the Ring. The CG special effects have not held up very well. The fights that involve humans/elves/dwarves vs. orcs/goblins still work though.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I thought the same thing. It's a story that's been told a thousand times already, and it was told in a boring way.

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

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

13 Assassins - The first Takashi Miike movie I loved. I actually swore off his movies after the awfulness that was Izo, but I'm glad I impulse bought this one.

omg, watch Crows Zero (theres also a part 2) and you might like Sukiyaki Western Django

Harry Potter 7.2.

Saw it in Imax 3D. Thought it was very good, though I was expecting a bit more from the final battle. 3D was nothing special, but it was awesome seeing it on the huge IMAX screen anyway.

Black Death. Pretty damn good. Still think The 13th Warrior was better, since they're both oddly similar movies.

The Eagle. I think I already posted it but yeah I liked it.

And yep I am not at all into Star Trek or even sci fi in general but the newest Star Trek movie is awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Also wanting to see Winnie The Pooh. The not knot joke in the preview was hilarious I thought.

"Cowboys and Aliens"

I'm not really into westerns, but I found the more "western" like parts of this movie to be the most engaging (Cowboys vs. Indians, The spoiled son, the doctor who can't shoot, ect). It was amazingly predictable, though.

Still, as far as popcorn flicks go, this is one of the best of the summer. The actions scenes were intense and not overused, and the acting was just amazing. After a while, you forget about how absurd this premise is and just go with it, which leads to a surprisingly good time. I highly recommend it if you are not into little blue people and romance movies.

Don't believe the trailer or this review:

"This is the sort of film that Oscar generally ignores come awards season. It shouldn't. Crazy Stupid Love is a crazy smart film."

It was alright. Definitely not worthy of an Oscar, though.

Raging Bull - not as gritty as I was expecting but perhaps I'm too jaded for a film from 1980 to really shock me. Still worth watching although it mostly served to get me interested in reading about Jake La Motta.

The Fighter - a better boxing film if only because I have a good friend who grew up near Lowell, Massachusetts. Again, it mostly prompted some reading about the real-life characters.

I just finished a ton of Christian Bale movies. (My favorite actor.)

Equilibrium 7/10
Very emotional despite lack of emotion, the gunfights got me pumped.

Rescue Dawn 5/10
Didn't really dig the whole captured by Laotians thing, but the fact it was based on a true story kinda shocked me.

The Machinist 7/10
Insanity, one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to entertainment.

3:10 to Yuma 8/10
Not a big fan of westerns, but I really loved the characters.

Harsh Times 10/10
This got me on a personal level, it reminded a lot of my favorite Uncle, God rest his soul.

kung fu dunk was ridiculously stupid but was so funny. I liked it alot since I love basketball and nba jam dunks. Ping Pong Playa I think it was called was pretty good, too. Recently saw Frozen on netflix q and it's one of those movies where the characters do everything damn thing wrong. Just annoying as hell to watch. Fat sick and nearly dead was a great documentary about obese people and how to get back into shape by drinking juice. Pretty amazing to see how dedicated they were and the transformations that took place. I recently watched the bournce identity trilogy and loved it. Wonderful movies.

Submarine - It's kinda like Napoleon Dynamite if it was directed by Wes Anderson. It's good and I love the director Richard Ayoade.

[REC]2 - First was better, but this was really good as well with some cool twists. They took the story in a completely different direction from the first, but it works well.
