I liked Dredd a lot, but it seems like people who praise the hell out of it haven't seen The Raid.

Just saw Zero Dark Thirty screening. Like all the noms this year, was good but not overwhelmingly great.

Lincoln is probably gonna win everything...

Rocky. Somehow I'd never seen the first one. Great movie.

Will probably watch the rest of the series over the next couple of weeks (have the Bluray set) since there all 1:85:1 and I want to avoid black bars for a bit while breaking in my new plasma.


Wow, I thought everyone has seen Rocky. Did you see the sequels already? Rocky 2 and 3 kind of blend together in my mind as one for some reason. 4 is great, I believe Stallone said that's when his creative juices peaked. 5 gets better each time I watch it. RB great too.

Yeah I watched 2, 3 and 4 a bunch as a kid. Think I only saw 5 and the last one once a piece.

The Master

Great job by Joaquin and Philip Seymour Hoffman. I don't think I fully got it. Something about the end tells me I must have not picked up on something... time to go look at some plot line discussions.

Edit: Ah OK. I slightly misinterpreted something. Nevermind. Though another thing I was not sure about is a little bit more open. People who saw the movie would probably know what I'm referring to.

Just saw Django. Someone here mentioned it was like Basterds and it's not at all.

Tarantino still hasn't made a bad movie, I don't know where I would rank this one but it wouldn't crack the top three for me. Great nonetheless.

I guess I'll have to check it out.

I thought Dredd was great. A throwback to 80s R-rated movies. I'd put it up there with Robocop.


I've seen it twice now and I still don't know what to think of it. One thing is for sure though... Wat.. Duh... Fuck... were they thinking with those motorcycles... ?

I like Olivia Therby.

I don't doubt it. It wasn't to lose weight, though - it was half coincidental. I thought I had a stomach ulcer and heard cabbage juice was a natural cure.

Stomach ulcer > cabbage juice.


I want it more for being heathier than needing to lose weight. I saw it more about motivation and determination than not factual or whatever...

Saw both Dredd and Silver Linings Playbook yesterday. Both were fantastic and much better than I was expecting. Some very surprisingly strong performances in Silver Linings Playbook all around.

Cut the first hour and Zero Dark Thirty was pretty good. The torture scenes were just incredibly boring and really added nothing. I liked Hurt Locker way more for telling a story, instead of trying to tell a story.

Why surprising? The cast looked like the strength of the movie. The dancing looked lame.

Good to hear the positive reaction for SLP. I'm hoping to catch it here in about a month or so.

I watched Django, great movie. The great plot twist was when the white people turned out to be evil.

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the Fuck up.

It was surprising because Jennifer Lawrence is still a relative up and comer, Bradley Cooper doesn't have much in the way of serious acting experience, and Robert DeNiro is coming off of a long string of laughably bad roles (remember that terrible cop movie he was in with Al Pacino, Righteous Kill, I think it was?). Hell, even Chris Tucker did great in a role as a character whose premise borders on slapstick.

Also, the dancing stuff was really, really low key. They aren't heavy handed with it at all. You could almost argue there's more relation to jogging in the movie than dancing.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Silver Linings Playbook - I'm in the minority here but I didn't like it. I thought it was weird and was honestly pretty bored throughout.

Zero Dark Thirty - Really enjoyed this one. I hated Hurt Locker so I was very happy that ZDT was a ton better. The end was a lot more exciting and tense than Hurt Locker to me.

Fright Night (modern) was pretty decent. Just a fun movie but probably not one I'd watch again, similar to the original.

Good to hear about ZDT. I didn't like Hurt Locker either so I'm hesitant on this one.

I saw Expendables 2 last night. It was better than the first. I couldn't tell if everyone was in on the joke or not, some of the one liners were horrible. I take that back, all of the one liners were horrible.

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

Watched Django Unchained last night. Good film.

After seeing a trailer for Zero Dark Thirty, I want to see it more. Same with The Great Gatsby surprisingly.

That's why the one liners were so great. I can't remember the last time I saw a movie where someone would say "rest in pieces."

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

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

A Haunted House was great if you're into the spoof movies. Pretty much the spiritual successor to the original Scary Movie (the new one looks like crap, not involving the Wayans.) As usual if you're not into the crude humour don't bother.

I liked ZDT, but not as much as The Hurt Locker. There weren't any scenes that resonated with me the way that certain scenes in Hurt Locker did.

Mini-series rather than movie, The Hatfields and McCoys.

Pretty solid, very good performances from Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton. Looked amazing on Blu, super sharp, lots of detail.

Silver Linings Playbook was awesome. One of my favorite movies of the year. Going into it I thought it was more of a comedy than a drama but it's probably more drama than comedy. Great movie either way. Also, I may be in love with Jennifer Lawrence.

Django Unchained was pretty awesome as well. I really liked Christoph Waltz in it. I had never heard of him going into it. I'm pretty sure he won a Golden Globe for his role and he definitely deserved it.

Argo was pretty good and worth a watch but I'll probably never watch it again. I'm glad others seem to like it more though because I like Ben Affleck.

Edit: Apparently Looper wasn't up for any awards? That was 2012 right? That was probably my single favorite movie of the year. Much better than Argo or Lincoln imo.

Sci Fi movies rarely get into the critics circle.

Watch Inglorious Basterds, Waltz is incredible in that movie and won an Oscar for it.

And yeah, sci fi rarely gets nominated for anything outside the technical categories. It should be nominated for screenplay at the very least.

I'm 1:50 into the 2:40 Hunger Games and I don't know how I feel about it yet. It's OK but I'm not blown away or anything. Maybe when I watch the last 1/2 hour I'll feel differently...

Saw Wreck It Ralph with my 5-year-old finally. Surprisingly few video-game in-jokes and nods, but good movie overall. Wish they had left out the stupid Konami code joke. Made me cry twice; apparently I'm as big a pussy as Cheapy is.

I liked The Hunger Games. I read, and enjoyed, the books first though.
