J Edgar- It was OK. The reviews had me thinking it would be pretty bad but it's far from a train wreck. I'm a huge DiCaprio fan and so maybe I'm a little biased but I thought he did good as old and young Edgar. His accent did not bother me though that may be an issue for some other people. Biggest problem for me was that they tried to put too much into the movie which is pretty long and they hop around the plot too much. There were a few instances where I was little lost in the timeline. Apparently the last few Eastwood films weren't all that great so this would probably not change a detractors mind. As for me this is my first film I've seen from him since Gran Torino and J Edgar is not close to that quality.

Transformers: Dark (Why-U-No-Say-Side?!?) of the Moon

I only finished the second one because of Megan Fox - her replacement is not even hot. I stopped watching shortly after the whole fat Asian and Shia in the bathroom (halfway through).

best part of the movie = first 10 seconds when she walks up the stairs with the bear in just a shirt

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Took two months or so, but finally finished watching the saga on Bluray! This one has the most nostalgia for me as it's the only one I saw in the theater as as kid. Ewoks are a bit cheesy, but everything else in the movie is great.

The ending is also a bit more poignant after having seen the prequels and knowing Anakin's full story. For all their faults, the prequels at least had that benefit (this is the first time I've watched the OT since seeing the prequels).

Super 8.
Great beginning and the kids were great, but the overall plot fell a little flat for me.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Super 8 was frickin awesome,
but i seen The Thing prequel recently and I cant understand the horrible reviews it got, sorry lackluster reviews, it was exactly what i wanted it to be, a great prequel and even better scary movie, though obviously not as shocking as the first one.
go see it !!

Wet Hot American Summer: Pretty good, kind of cheesy at some parts but overall pretty funny.
Limitless: I thought it was really good. The whole idea of the movie was awesome and I thought they executed it perfectly.

Saw The Muppets last night. I had a big smile on my face throughout the whole movie. I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a movie that much.

You reminded me that I needed to see The Thing. It was complete and utter shit. It was a terrible prequel and forgot why the 1982 version was so good. The special effects were some of the worst I've ever seen. The 1982 version was more a psychological thriller than a monster movie, this was almost pure monster movie with the thing chasing people around. It wasn't one bit scary and it makes you question things that happened in the 1982 version (a cardinal sin in a prequel). Plus, the ending should have been a helicopter chasing a dog to lead into the 1982 version. It didn't. Fail.

The Descendants- Pretty good. I wasn't too crazy about it. I wonder if it's cause I'm not in my 30s or older. I think I just had a hard time connecting to anyone cause the main characters are in their teens and younger or a bunch of people not too far from retirement.

The Man from Nowhere

Another bad-ass drama/action flick from Korea. Check it out on Netflix streaming.

The Strange Thing About The Johnsons - Trailer is worth watching: http://www.screened....hnsons/128-951/

PROS:
Well acted and shot
Briefly touches on taboo subject matter
Only 30 minutes long and free on Youtube

CONS:
Fucked up ending
Supposed to be a black comedy but the only thing black about it was the characters...

That's exactly what the ending was. I'm glad the prequel tried for something different than the 82 movie. If it was the exact same thing it would have been boring. Also the monster looked great and creepy, I don't know what gave you impossibly high standards.

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

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Dutch- another John Hughes movie. Watching it just made me happy.
For a few dollars more- good, but I didn't pay attention to the whole thing, looking forward to good, bad, ugly next.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is great.

For a Few Dollars More is the weak link in the Man with No Name trilogy.

Captain America- B
If they cut out all of the modern stuff and saved it until after the movie, then it would've been better.

Watched Bridesmaids last night. Fully expected this movie to be one of those flicks that showed all the funny stuff during its commercials only to see it was legitimately hilarious.

Also cool to see Paul Feig show some love to the "smaller" actors of The Office. Appearances by David Wallace, Carol Stills, and Hank the Security Guard to name a few. (and of course Erin).

The Adjustment Bureau was just on HBO and I must say it's one of those movies that you can leave the theater still thinking about it. The film itself felt rushed and loses you at some points because of this but the premise is solid enough to carry the audience through.

Thomas Newman lends his musical genius to the soundtrack and proves he can be upbeat in contrast to his usual melancholia. Why doesn't anyone ever tell me when he scores a new movie? I really need a newsletter or something because his work is always fantastic.

Overall, this movie surprised me by twisting the elements of everyday life in a new way. The Christian overtones may turn off some but agnostics will appreciate the ideology presented. It's a smart film, if poorly presented but gets a thumbs up from me.

True Grit- the John Wayne version. That girl looked a lot like Demi Moore in Ghost.
Now I can watch the sequel more properly, though I've seen it on tv a few times...
