HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN- 8/10 all kinds of EPIC. The score alone was worth it. Silly gore, but I really dug the gritty 70s/80s Deathwish with a hobo feel. The "bad" Santa got what was coming to him...

Xmen 1st class- it was aight. 6/10 special effects were cheese-ola. Magneto and Xavier were great, the casting was good, the time period was good, just not good enough to dethrone Cap as my hero movie of the year. They should have done a straight reboot with the real Xfactor line up. Something about the movie version of mystique never did it for me, looks even creepier on a kid/teen. The blue paint came off looking waaaay to semi-glossy. They need a matte blue/black tone and lose the spiky tendril things.

Ocean Waves I liked it, similar to Whisper of the Heart/Only Yesterday in that it's the "look into the life of" kinda movie, and I quite like these types of movies!

30 Minutes or Less - Funnier than I expected, the film doesn't really have any major faults. It will probably hold up as one of the better comedies of the year.

Silence of the Lambs is a FANTASTIC movie that should not be missed. It's not graphic at all, I don't know where you would get that idea. Even the one part you could maybe consider graphic isn't even that bad.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Meh, was alright. Didn't buy the hype that came along with it but still enjoyed the movie. Oh, Fuck Elijah Wood in that movie. I seriously wanted to punch him in the face.

The Green Hornet - Pure garbage. Seth Rogen is an annoying fat Fuck and nothing more. He can't act and relies on being loud and obnoxious to be funny - which he isn't. The only good things about the movie was Christoph Waltz, as always, and how he died - table legs to the eyes and then consequently shot to all hell.

Saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes today. Much better than the shitty Mark Wahlberg movie. I might go see it again this week.

Casino - I think I've now seen pretty much all the well-received gangster movies that have been released in the US since Godfather. That said, I'm not sure why Casino is considered above average. It has the same very predictable rise and fall as every other mafia type movie. From Scarface, to Goodfellas, to Casino, there is never really a doubt about what the ending will be like. Yeah, there are small differences, and you never know for sure who's going to get blasted, but overall, I think I'm done with the genre. The Departed remains my favorite.

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

Winter's Bone - Very good movie. Jennifer Lawrence really did an amazing job in her role. The movie is worth a watch (and it's on Netflix now!). Two thumbs up from me.

Yeah, but both Goodfellas and Casino are based on non-fiction books by Nicholas Pileggi. If it's predictable, it's not because of a script, it's because that's how it happened in reality.

Saw The Change-Up with my wife on Friday. It wasn't bad. Not a fan of Ryan Reynolds but Jason Bateman makes up for that. Overall it was better than I thought it would be but not amazingly hilarious. There are some funny scenes for those of us that have kids.

Watched Unstoppable finally and thought it was pretty good other than the ridiculous fake news reports in the movie.

Source Code was damn good. I'd consider buying the disc when it goes on sale.

A few hidden gems in my opinion that I found on Netflix that I had never heard of:

16 to Life
Flakes
Answer Man


TV Show:

Drop Dead Diva



Popular Movies I liked, but never watched until now:

Notting Hill (this was surprisingly fun to watch; very good)
Julie & Julia (this was very good; surprised the heck out of me)


^^ I tried to watch Source Code, but it seemed like too much was going on to watch unless I completely devoted myself to it. So, I put it on the back burner for now.

Told you! You didn't find it graphic at all, right? The only part that I think could be considered graphic is when the prison guard was strung up on his cage, but even that wasn't too bad.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was actually good. Whoever did they're marketing should be fired though because I had zero interest in it, but my friend's cousin works at a movie theater so we saw it for free, which is the only reason I went.

Well, it made $54 million this weekend for the 5th best August opening of all time--and without the benefit of overpriced 3D shows. So I'd say they did something right with the marketing. :D

I want to see it, but not enough to go see it in the theater when there's several other things out I haven't gotten time to check out yet.

I take it you don't like sports? ESPN showed advertising for the movie pretty much non-stop for the entire week leading up to its release. When they were doing the NFL free agent stuff, there was a Rise of the Planet of the Apes logo permanently planted on the right side of the screen and every single commercial break contained previews for the movie.

I don't think he was saying that he never saw the ads, but rather that the ads didn't make him want to see the movie.

You Kill Me
Streaming on NFLX, dark comedy about an alcoholic hitman starring Ben Kingsley, Tea Leoni, and Luke Wilson. It's actually quite charming. Dennis Farina makes a few brief appearances as well.

I've always wanted to see the Chaser, caught it on television one time but it was on really late so I couldn't watch.

Anyway I started watching Only Yesterday like two months ago but stopped half way through because I was too tired. Finally watched the rest last night. I liked it , although I preferred the sections of the younger version of the girl over the older.

I thought about watching The Chaser, but didn't get around to it. Since it's apparently good, I might.

Also I have mixed feelings on Old Boy. I liked it, but
Spoiler
so I feel like that's clouding my judgement on how good the movie really is.

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

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

I didn't care for Old Boy much either. If I'm watching a movie based on the twist, but the movie can't hold me until the twist, then the twist does absolutely nothing for me. It comes and I say "Ok, there's the twist, I don't care." I really don't understand why people hold this in such high praise.

The Chaser doesn't look all that great, but I'll check it out.

There are a few korean movies on netflix that have been great. 3 of my favorites I saw recently are The Chaser, I saw the Devil and Man from Nowhere. All were awesome. A few days ago I saw cowboys and aliens which was pretty sweet. Transformers 3 was a bust.
