The Raid
Hell yeah! One of the best action films in awhile. If you like Tony Jaa you have to see this. There are plenty of "Oh Shit" moments.

Props to Ozzkev for the sig.

Safe House - Not really an original movie, but it was enjoyable. I hated how (super spoilers)
Worth watching once though.


Son of a bitch. I thought you were talking about panic room and clicked on the spoiler. #-o

50/50

I was all excited seeing Morticia Addams in this. The whole cast was pretty damn great despite the movie being pretty damn predictable.

Dragon Tatoo was excellent. I hope Fincher is able to make the sequels. Also, One of the best title sequences I've ever seen.

I take it you never read the books. Let's just say that it is critical to the plot of the next two books.

50/50 has a pretty decent commentary track. They don't spend a lot of time talking about it, but it is interesting to hear Will Reiser talk about having cancer and how it influenced the movie.

Judging from the last scene I thought it might.

Saw the raid over the weekend and it was fucking awesome. If you like kung fu/martial arts movies, you must watch this on the big screen. I said, "damn damn Daaaaayaaaamn!" like 17 times. There's really no story at all but it doesn't matter. The moves were incredible and ridiculous and it looked like these guys were really getting hit. If I had a dvd/blu of this, I'd rewind many scenes many times.

^This, and I can't believe Chuck Norris wants to ruin the sequel!

Why Chuck why?
:cold:

Yeah Stallone should have told him to Fuck off, I mean actually told him "Hey Chuck, Fuck off".

Martha Marcy May Marlene - I think that was the name, it was worth watching but I don't think I'll ever watch it again.

Final Destination 5 - Great
The premonition always fools me. This series has more creative deaths than the Saw movies.

Fallen (1998)

8/10

Good acting but story was weak and made little sense.

Cabin in the Woods - 4/5 - Going into this movie I didn't know much about it. I was pleasently surprised by how much humor there was in the movie. Also the amount of blood and gore was quite good, which has been absent in recent modern horror films. This movie starts off with 2 guys in lab coats talking about their day to day and suddenly the movie title pops up with dramatic music. This sets the pace of the random funny moments in Cabin. For a horror movie to take its horror story line seriously but also to be quite fun is hard to do. The balance between humor and seriousness often is failed in horror films. Cabin seems to succeed in both cases. Cabin will definitely keep you entertained and make you wonder how a movie like this even got made. I do not believe Cabin will be as enjoyable the second time around...but first time through its a riot.

Cabin in the Woods - A must see if you like horror movies. Does what should have been done with horror movie tropes a long time ago. Very glad a movie like this could be made. If you liked Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, then you will like this.

Slumber Party Massacre- Decent Slasher
Friday the 13th Part 2- meh
The Raid- Best action movie I've seen in a while
Cabin in the Woods- A lot funnier than scary, but still entertaining
Lockout- Guy Pearce was probably the best part of the movie, everything else was kind of dull.

Saw Hunger Games. I haven't read the books but now I want to.

Movie would have benefited greatly from a better director and another hour of running time to flesh things out.

Still, not a bad movie - but it's easy to see it could have been great - and that stings.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - Seeing as I'm not the biggest fan of Cruise or the other three MI movies, I didn't have the highest hopes going into this, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I liked the first book a lot and I thought the movie was 20 min too long!

It wasn't good, it wasn't bad. I did a blind buy and kind of regret it, but at least I have all four in the collection. Just felt like an awkward action film to me, that couldn't decide on suspense or humor. The suspense when it's good, is really good but never quite seemed to get to the top of the rollercoaster. Most of the humor falls flat (fucking Simon Pegg. . .) but it has its moments.

Hopefully it drops in price so I can get a few bucks back, but it's worth owning at $10 or less.

Lethal Weapon Trilogy.

The first one was the best. Probably won't watch the fourth. South African chick was hot as hell. Bad guys in late-80s-to-mid-90s action movies sure fucking loved their helicopters.

Thought it was very good.

When my fiance took me to see that I thought it was going to be horrible, but I haven't laughed that hard at a movie in a while. I know it wasn't a comedy, and certainly got the importance of the subject matter, but a few of the women in that movie were just hilarious.

Plus, y'know, Emma Stone is pretty easy on the eyes.

Replace movie and director with book and author and you have my exact feelings on the book. Well, minus the run time stuff.

Saw Cabin In The Woods today, brilliant movie. Probably helped that I'm a huge Whedon fan. I really wouldn't be surprised if the movie
