The NFC and NL definitely aren't good enough for rnt
Prometheus was very good and very entertaining, but too many plot holes kept it from attaining greatness. I think it should have been a little big longer.
Chernobyl Diaries - I'm not sure why this was ragged on when it was in the theatres. The setting was cool as hell, and the characters were likable enough to care about. The first hour was pretty entertaining, but the last fifteen minutes were a bit of a letdown. All in all, it was a good B horror movie.
Re-watched Religulous last night because my wife had never seen it before. Such a great movie.
Men in Black 3. Enjoyable, as these movies are, with more character exposition and some twists. It was weird seeing Arnold Rothstein as an alien, though.
I fell asleep halfway through. It was 4AM on a flight, but still.
Well, they are pretty formulaic. I doubt you missed anything you'll regret not seeing, other than Emma Thompson's bare boobs.
watched warrior a couple days ago...tom hardy is really just the biggest badass in every movie he is in. loved it.
Saw Melancholia last week. I found it pretentious and boring, my wife hated it, a friend of mine loved it. IMDB reviewers rate it 7.2. Kirsten Dunst's rack is viewed in part 2 of the movie.
Also saw The Girl, a movie about Alfred Hitchcock's obsession with Tippi Hedren and the making of The Birds and Marnie. I enjoyed this movie and, as a fan of The Birds, I found it interesting to compare the scenes in The Girl with the scenes in The Birds. Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren is beautiful.
About 20 minutes from the end of New Moon. Has been an experience.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was a good flick that was only in the theaters in the U.S. on limited release. Gary Oldman was credible in the role of George Smiley made famous by Alec Guiness on the original BBC version of this John le Carre classic.
Loved Gary Oldman. You also get Sherlock's own Benedict Cumberbatch!
Just watched "A Separation" last night, a great Iranian movie from last year that won the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Holy cow--great performances from the two leads, a magnificent turn by the daughter, and a story with twists and turns that reminded me of Crash with more plausibility and heart.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Having a solid day, watched blow out with travolta which id never heard of but had 3 stars, i been real into mystery/crime novels lately so i liked it, then watch hangover 2 then contagion which left me wanting more, now full monty.
Watched The Cabin in the Woods last night. Wow is all I can say. Most "interesting" movie I've seen in some time.
II gotta see cabin. In the woods, people keep talking about it but havent watched yet. Sounds interesting.
Resident Evil - Damnation, a 47 minute Japanese animated product. I can't comment on it because I fell asleep after watching it for 20 minutes.
I guess I did anyway. It stunk.
I watched Crash.
Woke up at about 3am and couldn't get back to sleep. Ended up watching "Best Laid Plans" with Reese Witherspoon. Cool little twist, but wtf? Too many characters just shrugging off the fact that people turned their lives upside down over some bullshit.
During the last 2 days while not at work watched all 4 of the Scream movies (had never seen 3 or 4).
Yeah. But a ton of people pop up in random roles that I didn't remember or know where in them. Liev Schreiber, Timothy Olyphant, Omar Epps, etc.
The Town is very good.
Prometheus could have been so much better than it was, but still was entertaining. I'll be interested to see where they go in the sequel.
Warrior was awesome. Tom Hardy is really great as was Nick Nolte.
Also watched Haywire, which I really enjoyed. It was basically Jason Bourne with a woman, and I am totally fine with that. Gina Carano obviously isn't a good actress, but it worked for this role. I think the fight scenes were even more believable than in the Bourne movies because they were a little slower and had less quick cuts. She was very solid with the fighting. Pretty great supporting cast too. Definitely wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to this one, though it almost definitely won't happen.
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter - it was entertaining enough. Could have been better, could have been worse.
The Raven - not bad. Cusack carries the movie with his version of Edgar Allen Poe.
Just saw this as well. It was certainly entertaining but the much-criticised plot holes were indeed so large that it rendered the movie pointless.
Aliens ripping shit apart and hunting down and killing people is never completely pointless.
