Prefontaine 3.9/5

- not as good as Without Limits. Very interesting to watch both since they were only made about a year apart. AFAIK Without Limits was the movie Pre's parents were behind. Prefontaine was a bit disappointing with some of the incidents it changed for dramatic purposes, such as how Pre injured his foot. 

 

Fire On The Track: The Steve Prefontaine Story 4.5/5

- Documentary better than the 2 movies.

Enjoyed it more the second time, still don't think it's amazing though.

Super - I watched this movie on a whim only because James Gunn directed it and I wanted to see his style before Guardians of the Galaxy next year. While I think the film missed it's mark of a deconstruction on the stree-level superhero and the superhero genre as a whole, I enjoyed the film. There is some funny stuff in there, but the film really falters when everything gets so serious. The ending also makes zero sense. I am willing to forgive it all because Ellen Page was fantastic.


I thought she was so hot in it, for some reason I can't pinpoint.

It was just such a huge disappointment. Not that I was really looking forward to it or anything, but I thought it looked like something entertaining to watch. It wasn't. It just dragged and dragged.

I'm not one to agree with rotten tomatoes but in this case the film is under 20% plus the trailer looked pretty bad.

I'm just nit a fan of Johnny depp in weird mode, which I guess is most of his career.

I saw that but went anyway since I'm not one to really listen to reviews. I'm not a big Johnny Depp fan either but he really was the most entertaining thing about the movie.

 

I guess it just wasn't what I wanted it to be. I wanted it to be the guy becoming the lone ranger and then doing things to build up notoriety and things like that. Kind of like Batman Begins. It wouldn't have been original, but it would have been entertaining. Instead it felt like half the movie was him becoming the lone ranger, and the next half was him deciding not to be the lone ranger then changing his mind and the big action scene at the end, which is what I wanted the whole movie to be.

 

Ah well. I'd like to see them try harder with a sequel, but factoring in the 215million budget and the fact it didn't even make 10 million yesterday, I think the franchise is going to be killed.

The Campaign.  It was more low key than I was expecting from Will Farrell, which isn't a bad thing because I hate when he's too over the top.  Wasn't something I'd rave about but I didn't hate it either.

Thank you for taking the time to look it over. I will work more on the audio and abstain from summaries in the future. Thank you again.

This.  I had very low expectations coming in.  But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie.  The tension throughout was the best part of the movie, although I agree that the plot and character development were thin.  FWIW, I didn't read the book.

The Karate Kid (1984) - 3.75/5

- Holds up pretty well, stupid Nickelodeon appeared to have censored it in parts, great nostalgia, and nice bonus seeing a 1980's arcade.

 

Touching the Void - 3.25/5

- Great story, poor film making. Would have been better off without the real people telling the story, which usually actually is best. Would be better if just acted out by actors and added some fictional dramatic events.

Has 0.0 to do with the book. I mean 0.1 it has zombies like in the book. I was happy  they called them zombies and not some shitty nick name like walkers or the undead or whatever horse shit hollywood comes up with to not call zombies zombies.

Man of Steel - some nitpicks, but not enough for me to hate this movie. Wanted a film where Superman did Supermany stuff, and left happy that they finally made the film I wanted to see.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters - Dumb movie. But at least Gretel was cute and more violent than I was expecting.

I finally saw Django Unchained, and I do understand the criticism regarding how a white man wrote a Western under the backdrop of American slavery.  I really cringed whenever somebody got whipped and brutally cut, and was horrified by the hot box, but like most of us people cheered whenever Django and the doctor shot somebody in a manner of seconds. It really does play on our hypocrisy on how easily we're willing to accept or commit the taking or draining of life at the drop of a hat.  On regarding Samuel L. Jackson's character, in any Western we would call him a no good dirty snake scat in the grass, and at the same drop of a hat we relegate him in to "Uncle Tom," due to centuries of institutionalized racism that has been embedded into the American blood, no matter what color you are from white to black to green to purple.  If you even read Harriet Beecher-Stowe's book, the movie's main characters' heroism couldn't even amount to a drop of what Tom was capable of.

I was watching Pulp Fiction recently and one of the special features was Siskel and Ebert talking about Tarantino's ability to play with culture and our perception of it to make his "excellent" movies.  Considering how the audiences are always strung along into seeing his films and talking about it, whether they love or absolutely hate it, we're all just puppets to the movie makers' desires.  This is especially considering that his films are indeed firmly embedded in the exploitation genre.

 

I do want to see the sequel now, especially they revealed that Zoe Bell was in the movie with that setup with the photograph.

I'm probably in the minority but I didn't like Cabin in the Woods at all. It was just ridiculous. Good idea, I thought awful execution. Tucker & Dave is a much better horror deconstruction film.

I did like Adventureland a lot. I think people who didn't expected it to be the next Superbad.

I thought it was pretty poor satire throughout, but the ending scenes were a lot of fun to watch.
