Surprisingly The Last Movie You Saw Didn't Suck Pt. 2

high noon - I picked this one up at the library just because it was a western and then saw the high reviews it received. One of the greatest westerns?!?! Why do people like this movie so much? I thought the story was unbelievable. Everyone was cheering for the sheriff but then all of a sudden everyone turned their backs on him. I'll rewatch Shane instead.

 

Sucker punch - Now this is a stinker. If it wasn't for the special effects/visuals there would be no redeeming value.

 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - the book might have been ahead of its time but the topics covered seem a bit cliche now. And I can never really connect to these types of movies because my high school experience (in San Francisco) was nothing like this so all these characters with all their problems and issues seem a bit unrealistic. Still an entertaining movie to watch with good acting.

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, I haven't read the book yet and I will. I recognized a lot of the actors in the film, and I left with the impression that humans are indeed a contemptible and pitiful lot.

 

The Man Who Knew too Much- the one with Peter Lorre in it.  By today's standard's it's a cute film, and barely as thrilling as Hitchcock's American films.  I laughed at how the police department were unable to take down the several members of the gang.

If there is one crime the Lone Ranger does commit, it's forgetting to have fun.  Wildly contrast to the Pirates franchise, LR takes a darker tone and pushes PG-13 to the limit while largely being carried by the cast.  I'm not old enough to be a fan of the source but I understand it takes one too many departures for even the modest of enthusiasts.  It's nowhere near as bad as critics make it out to be but I can certainly respect outcry over failing to honor childhood memories.

 

A few genuine laughs and a huge payoff do make it worth a rental, at least.

No, this is made by a director that knows how to make a good movie, not just make things go boom.

Finally saw Identity Thief as the wife and I were in a mood for a comedy...with the exception from 1 or 2 VERY funny scenes, I felt it wasn't that funny.

Not yet. I just think people should be supporting an original movie and Guilleremo Del Toro.

These people weren't lying...Pacific Rim was great! Worth the extra money to IMAX 3D it, seriously...To date, it's my favorite movie I've seen in 3D.

Finally saw Wreck-It Ralph, it's a pretty good movie. It didn't indulge us too much with the fan service unlike some other like works (I'm talking to you, Ready Player One). I was a little disappointed that it didn't travel to enough worlds, but that's what sequels are for. It's definitely worth a buy, especially if you have children and if they are interested in video games.

Pacific Rim - Great stuff. Del Toro is one of the few director's that sets his sights on a particular kind of movie and nails it perfectly without deviating from his intended path. The action was great and the character interactions and emotions were far more than enough to overshadow the skimped character development. Also, Idris Elba is the man.

Might be a stupid question but is the entire movie in 3D or only some parts?  Reason I ask is because I haven't been to Imax since they started doing ONLY 3D on every, single movie I would want to see there.  I really fucking wish 3D would die already because I'm sick and tired of this shit ruining my movie experiences. : \

Its all in 3D. The 3D effects were on point, and the sound was phenomenal. This is a very loud movie (my pregnant wife couldn't even enjoy it cuz she was worried It was too loud for my son) and I don't know how I could enjoy it outside of IMAX now. I'm paying one more visit to my theatre again before it's taken out.

 

For the record, I'm with you on 3D...most movies I've seen I've felt weren't worth the extra money to see in 3D, let alone IMAX 3D. Pacific Rim, however, was worth every penny. It's a wonderful experience. 3D will not ruin it for you this time.

Pretty let down by it as I really liked the book. They changed/left out to much and made it too corny.

Pacific Rim - 8/10. Solid and entertaining film but not without it's flaws (mostly in the acting department). Can't wait for the blu ray of this one to watch with the subtitles, quite hard to make out the dialogue at certain points in the film.

 

Coffee Town - 7.5 - Just look at the 3 main cast members and if you like any of their stuff then you'll like this one. Enjoyed it, got some good laughs out of it and it wasn't that long either.

Pacific Rim - So good, pays homage to so many films/books/anime/etc that came before it, highly recommended.

Spring Breakers..Lets just say i was under the influence watching it, It has a meaning like all the movies Harmony Korine made..you got to really understand it and just think its another teen movie with dubstep and parties. "This movie doesn't attempt to provide something for teens to look up to. along with much of korine's other work, it fluctuates between being heavily imagistic and wholly conceptual. as such, viewing it as an allegory of any sort is bound to lead to disappointment. it's like saying gummo (also by korine) sets a bad example for teenagers. but that's not even close to what either movie is about. they're works of art and experience, both meaningless and profound in their own right."
