Looper 6/10

I fell asleep and my friend didn't like it much either. The directing and acting were difficult to sit thru.
.
should've gone to see Resident Evil instead.

So you fell asleep, and it had horrible acting. 6/10 is a better score than you make it sound.

Argo - was good, but since you already know the ending, there's not much to be had from the story. I'd probably give it like 7.7 out of 10 because of the acting and the script, but definitely not the 8.4 it's getting on IMDB. End of Watch was a way better movie.

Looper - Not bad - good action and an interesting thought, but ultimately it doesn't make sense where they were getting at with the movie right at the end. 8/10

8/10

Reminded me of the cartoon Filmore! which was awesome back in the day.


Woah, that's exactly what I thought. I thought the movie was a bit bland, though.

Looper - 8.5/10
“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Conviction - 6/10

Hilary Swank's brother is serving life in prison for murder, and she's convinced he's innocent. So she begins a quest of putting herself through law school. I enjoyed the flashback scenes of them as kids, but most of the movie was quite underwhelming. There is a great story here, with so many angles to examine, but this felt like just a glossed-over version of it.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - 3.5/10

Don't know why my wife decided that this was the movie we were going to watch this weekend, but it was definitely not worth my time. Points for style. Otherwise, skip it.

Can you imagine drowning AT a KK Rev concert?

The last Exorcism - 6.5/10 - not really a big fan of the mocumentary style films, but this one at least has a couple good tension and scare moments. When, what I thought the ending was going to be, started playing out I was severely disappointed, and almost pissed (seemed like it was going to be a total cop-out). I'm glad they threw in the last min twist to make it a better ending, but it doesn't make up for the motion sickness, slow development at the beginning, and general lack of scares (the quality was there for the small quantity it had, but I needed MORE).

Went to see that giant turd in the theatres. After 15 mins, my buddy and I couldn't stand it anymore, and went to the next theatre to watch Hero...great decision!

Cloud Atlas - 9.5/10

I have to see it again, but this might be my favourite film of the year. Maybe even my favourite film since There Will be Blood.

Everything about it from the score to the acting to the visuals to the way all 6 stories flowed seamlessly into one another just blew me away. The critical reaction seems to be pretty mixed so I can't guarantee that you'll love it as much as I did, but I can guarantee that you won't regret seeing it.

Props to canuckbuddy for the sig

Goon

10/10

This movie has it all. To be honest it has been one of the few sports movies to capture the specific sport while poking fun of it. As much as language may be an issue to some people I found it to be hilarious. I have never watched a movie I found to feel so right about hockey. This is one of the better movies to come out this decade and will be soon bought!

If you haven't become a Halifax Highlander fan yet I hope you see this one soon.

I skimmed through the last half of Human Centipede 2. It's kinda hard to know what happened when you fast forwarded it.

1/10

It boggles the mind what some producers come up with.

( Do not judge me because I watched this movie, I actually have a very good taste in movies)

I saw Looper. I liked the concept and a bit of the acting but the rest, not at all. I pretty much called the plot from the get go and *Spoilers in white text ahead* the way he killed himself while he could have just shot his arm off to save the woman instead drove me crazy. Probably wouldn't watch it again, but I do want to watch Cloud Atlas a lot now after reading these reviews.

fight fire with fire

well... bruce willis was in it... and i only recall him hitting 1 person.

i could get into specifics, but i wasted enough time watching this movie - do yourself a favor and listen to that voice in your head that says "it sounds like it could be awful".

5/10 because i watched the whole thing, but the last half was only out of morbid curiosity and boredom.

Be forewarned, it's three hours. Not a big feal for me, but they were warning everyone when I bought our tickets so maybe some people can't sit still for that long. They are swapping stories so quickly that you don't have time to realize how long it is.
