My bad. Thanks for the correction.
Stephanie Meyer is really underrated. She sucks way more than most people give her credit for.
Pompeii - 6/10. I thought it was a mix of Gladiator and Titanic with a brief resemblence to Attack of the Clones. Gladiator is the strongest influence though. Unfortunately, the acting was closer to that of Clones, and the fx were extremely dated. I have seen better cg crowds in video games.
3 Days to Kill - 6/10. Very disjointed movie with a villain that is largely absent and inconsequential. The movie is much more about an absent father becoming a part of his daughter's life than all the spy/action stuff. The action is decent though, and some of it is humorous and fun.
I think if the plot had been a little tighter this could have been an outstanding film.
It had some very cool ideas, but if you weren't paying attention it was easy to miss key plot points. And even then it's a difficult film to understand with just a single viewing.
3 days to kill - 3/10
Some eye candy but little else
Pacific Rim 7/10. Not bad. Big robots fighting each other in the ocean. It was exactly what I expected.
Good visuals/audio for the big screen and surround sound system?
As a horror movie buff, I've become immune to seeing tons of gore and cheap scares over the years HOWEVER this movie was just fantastic.
Little to no gore (which I love) and plenty of suspense. Probably the best haunted house-type movie I've seen. Please rent this one and let me know what you think. It's not on Netflix, but I did find it on Fios video demand.
had this recorded on the dvr for quite some time... was reluctant to watch it because i felt it would not end well.
i like ryan gosling, james garner and rachel ...so i indeed finally watched it tonight.
but is has an old yeller type ending if you catch my drift.
really better than i thought it would be..
only complaint is they could have cut the length of the movie by thirty minutes.
tom hanks delivers as usual..and all the somali pirates did a whale of a job.
Yeah, really good effects.
Saw three today...
Non-Stop: 5/10 - Pretty damn stupid really. Almost entertaining in a mindless way, but not quite.
Stalingrad: 3/10 - Aside from some decent looking shots, this was terrible. The story is gibberish really, and "focuses" on a group of guys and a girl that we're told just suddenly care for each other, but are given no reason to believe it, and no reason to care about what happens to them. And the bookend scenes dealing with post tsunami Japan are just silly.
Anchorman 2 (Extended R rated version) - 3/10. I wasn't a fan of the first, but didn't hate it, but this was awful. I don't know how it compares to the pg-13 version as I didn't see it, but this was just dumb and unfunny with very few exceptions.
Finally saw the Lego Movie. I was really liking it until the end.. After reading some posts in this thread, I knew to look out for a twist, but not that one, and it made me mad. Lol
7/10 for the wackadoo ending..
Lone Survivor- 10/10 One of the best movies I've ever seen. I would definitely recommend seeing it in theaters for the real effect.
Robocop- 6.5/10 Was OK. More of a rental than anything. Don't waste movie theater money on it.
The Island (2005)
Despite living in a utopian survival paradise, waiting for his turn to win the lottery and a trip to "the island", one clone causes massive chaos and destruction when denied bacon.
7.5 out of 10
Little late on Thor 2 but was surprised considering how bad the first one was. Entertaining, better pacing, more realistic detail (darker vibe), still a little longer then the story needed. 7/10 for mere nostalgia and hey, it's Marvel.
I would give it about a 7/10. Nothing really spectacular. The last few minutes were pretty good.
Ending was disappointing... Batman was phenomenal
Ha! Yeah, I admit. I liked Batman's snarkiness. Didn't like how they played him at the end either.
