    Had a red box night with the fam.

    About Last Night
    8/10 simply because it was a grownup film. Lol hadn't seen many lately, so I'm going prolly going to overrate those a bit, until I can move up to pg-13 from G rated in my household.

    Bad Grandpa (incomplete)
    Went to sleep on it and what I did see I was unimpressed. They need to stop making those "Bad" movies. Nothing will ever top Bad Santa, in my mind.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past


    There's a whole thread about the movie, so I'll just quickly note that it was definitely okay. Not awesome, but points for destroying RFK stadium.

    7.5 out of 10

    Captain Phillips... One of those movies that is a little too long but still pretty good. However it is also one of those movies that I don't see myself watching again.

    CBGB... Never heard of the movie but I like Alan Rickman so I gave it a shot. Meh the subject matter and history of the club was interesting, the movie was OK but not all that great unless you were a fan of some of the bands that got their start there.

    Quick question...

    Do any of you or anyone you know own "Passion of the Christ"? Obviously, this post isn't about religion, but I can't see anyone that would want to get together and watch Passion on a movie night.

    "Hey guys, come on over...I've got steaks grillin', cold beer and we'll finish up with a little Passion of the Christ."

    I definitely see it as a movie that people generally only watch once.

    I looked up DVD/Blu-Ray sells. $6 million in domestic. For comparison, I looked up Captain Phillips since BP just mentioned how it may be one of those "one and done" type viewings (which I agree). Captain Phillips domestic home video totals are at $23 million as of today.

    X-Men Days of Future Past - 10/10

    Awesome! Story was great. By far the best X-Men movie. It was fun to see the 1970s in a new light. Can't wait to get this on Blu-ray.

    Warning about The Passion...it tells nothing of the teachings of Jesus, is very anti-semitic and is extremely gory...complete with slow motion blood spurts. The Last Temptation is a far better movie.

    ‘All Is Lost’ - I give a 6, but I'm always overly critical where movies that are supposed to depict real-life situations are concerned.

    47 Ronin

    Um. No idea really. Started trying to watch it last night but I think it must have been so bad that next thing I knew I was waking up on my couch in the middle of the night...

    I loved 47 Ronin actually.

    Captain America Winter Soldier : 9/10

    Loved the Winter Soldier, had tons of action and characterized Cap very well. For people who didn't read the comics, google Winter Soldier to see what he is about ** He takes the role of Captain America from Steve Rogers for a while**

    I'll definitely give it another shot. Might have been that I was just really tired...

    It will not be confused with the great Disney films which came before it. Still, I enjoyed this version of the Sleeping Beauty tale over the original animated version. If anyone was ever born to play the role of Maleficient, it would be Angelina Jolie.

    The Fanning sisters are making their mark in Hollywood. Perhaps there was a "prettier" choice to play Sleeping Beauty, but Elle Fanning was the right combination of good looks and acting skill to play the role. Bravo.

    Big Bad Wolves

    7.5/10

    An Israeli flick in the tenor of a Tarantino film (Tarantino actually commented that he thought this was the best movie of the year). Good dialog and humor for a plot built upon a disturbing premise. Subtitled.

    It was good, but I expected Jolie's character to be darker from the trailers I saw. She was fine, just wanted more with her powers and stuff.

    Non-Stop. 3/10. Pretty predictable from the trailer. Liam Neeson plays an airplane security guy and someone on the plane is texting him that they're gonna kill people. It makes you want to wonder who is doing the bad deed but it never allows you to get to know any of the characters so it doesn't matter who it is. Liam Neeson went from a promising career as a serious actor to the European Steven Segal.

    Occulus. 5/10. It's pretty good compared to horror movies since modern horror movies are pretty horrible. They do an okay job showing the movie in two different time periods and trying to throw a whole "ghost hunters" theme into it. Nothing amazing but somewhat entertaining if you're into mindless horror.

    The Nines. 6/10. Starts off pretty hillarious and intriguing but gets a bit strange from there. Takes itself a little too seriously. Tries to be some big existential movie that makes you question everything. Ending is kinda lame.

    Interesting fact: he turned down the roll as James Bond because his wife said she wouldn't marry him if he played the part.

    I heard that too, it was sad to hear she had recently passed away. Movie star level stardom, time constraints to make the sequels, etc. that would've definitely changed the dynamic of their relationship. Kudos to them. He did it his own way (great acting and GREAT roles) Joey Boy is right though in that all of his recent flix seem to be action oriented (Taken 1/2). It would've been difficult to see him as Oskar Schindler:confused:
