Lincoln - 8.5/10

It's dry and slow, but that's what I expected. As always, worth it for Daniel Day Lewis alone. Greatest living actor imo. The other fun part was the fact that practically every actor in the movie was vaguely familiar but impossible to pin down under the makeup/costumes. The guy who played Gale Betticker on Breaking Bad damn near stole the climactic scene. Tommy Lee Jones was surprisingly good, I'm not usually a fan.

Basically, worth seeing if you're a fan of quality acting or interested in the specific details of history.

I really enjoyed it. Thought it was fun and entertaining. Didn't think there was a boring moment, although

are you kidding? the gollum and bilbo scene, which was 10 minutes, could have been shorter? that scene was a warm, warm welcome from the ridiculous, childish chase scenes that it was interrupting

you didn't think the... you know, 15 catch-and-escape scenes that came before and after it could have been shorter?

the hobbit 7/10, and that's being generous

Last movie I saw was the underrated (in my opinion) Savages. Directed by Oliver Stone, it centers around two Laguna pot growers, one a former Navy SEAL, the other a peaceful, charitable Buddhist, and their "shared" girlfriend (played by the sultry Blake Lively). They end up fighting a Mexican drug cartel after the cartel kidnaps their girlfriend. I enjoyed this film because it was unconventional, quirky and at times very suspenseful...overall an 8 out of 10, Salma Hayek's character Elena is also a bonus.

Not even CLOSE to 10/10, man. 8 is being generous...I'd say somewhere in the 7-7.5 range, to be honest. I think in many cases the hype overwhelms the actual movie, and this is one of those cases.

I hope you weren't suggesting Avengers was one of the best movies of the year. That's something my 8 year-old nephew would claim.

Edit: And the only flaw he found with it was that they didn't get Optimus Prime to join the team.

Watch The Departed, Inception, Blood Diamond and The Aviator.

He's a great actor.


What he said. I wasn't a big fan of Leo DiCaprio after Titanic. But over the years he's been putting his stamp on the industry.

Looking forward to The Great Gatsby in 2013.

I was suggesting that the Avengers broke a lot of records, I also believe it was over hyped. If you read the books you would be enlightened by the Hobbit. It had the best graphics of the year, it was hilarious and of course had the fighting scenes. To me it was easily 10/10, if you disagree you disagree. It is the best movie of the year.

I was going to suggest for him to read the book too but I thought why bother, if he didn't like it I doubt reading the book will change his opinion.

First of all, the book was 350 pages long if that and didn't need to be split in to 3 feature length movies to start with...second of all, the chase scenes were just agonizingly interminable...

The Tourist - 4.5/10

Not terrible, but it was definetly forgettable. Not sure about the chemistry between Jolie and Depp. Wasn't believable that she was in love with him in any way. More worried about him than anything. Have to say, it was better than I expected though. High point was Timothy Dalton. Can't watch a movie with him without thinking about Hot Fuzz.


LOVE Hot Fuzz. So hilarious. 9/10 for me.

The Tourist may have been fluff, but compared to other fluff I actually enjoyed it. 7/10.

Finally got to watch Shutter Island and it gets a 10/10. But then again, I really, really like this kind of movie. Could have sworn Leo was channeling Boston Rob at times but all in all, more than worth the 138 minutes spent watching it while wrapping Christmas presents. I've never been a Leonardo DiCaprio fan (harking back to Titanic days :sick: ) but I thought he was incredible in the role of Teddy Daniels. Loved the whole 1940s setting and the feel to the movie...... and that feeling of every time you think you've figured something out in the plot it turns out not to be so. I know some hate that feeling of wandering around in circles within circles while watching a movie but Scorsese does that to the viewer most masterfully in this film.

Sent several unrepeatable comments in the direction of the television as TD walked down those stairs at the end, though......... now checking Amazon to purchase the book. Which is usually the other way around for me...... book first, then watch the movie.


Didn't know there was someone on here who loved Shutter Island even more than I did. It pulled me in, and made me think about the ending for weeks. 9.5 for me. And I'm not even much of a Leo OR Scorcese fan (appreciate/respect both, but this is definitely my favourite film by either of them).

The dream sequence with the ashes was one of the most compelling visuals I have ever seen in a movie.

No. Just making a point that there are too many children dreamworks films and not enough films like South Park that actually discuss world related issues in an entertaining manner rather than just there for the purpose of keeping younglings quiet for an hour and a half.

The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey: 9/10

A lot better than I expected, after reading reviews. The 64fps did take quite a while to get used to. I found it very offputting until the troll scene, at which point it was fine. The beginning 10-15 minutes with Ian Holm and Elijah Wood were unnecessary. Ate up a lot of time that could have (or not) been spent on something else.

The film really picked up at the troll scene and Rivendale (which looked gorgeous). You absolutely have to go in not comparing it to LOTR because the tone of the book is already much lighter than. Same world, much different story. Absolutely loved it.

Wife and I saw all these showings for that high frame rate version but stuck to IMAX 3D.

I'd probably give it a 8/10.

Assault On Precinct 13 (2005): 6.5/10

Meh, it was ok.


I watched that this week as well, and while the original is clearly much better, I ended up enjoying the remake way more than I thought I would. It's extremely formulaic and it the plot requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, but the setup was actually pretty cool, Laurence Fishburne was in full Morpheus mode which was awesome, and the action sequences were pretty well done. It's pretty obvious who's going to live and die in the end, but it's fun to guess which character is going to be offed next. I'd give it a 7/10. But the original really is much better.

Rushmore 8.5/10 - I hadn't seen it in years and Walmart had it on for $5 so I picked it up. It's still really great, but not quite as good as I remember it being. I definitely like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic more. Maybe even Moonrise Kingdom too. But man is Bill Murray ever hilarious in this.

The Matador - 8.5/10

I absolutely love this movie. We bought it about 6 years ago and hadn't watched it since. I remember really enjoying it though. Watched it last week and absolutely loved it. The last time Pierce Brosnan showed acting chops like this was in Dante's Peak.

In all seriousness though, this is such a gem. Giving serious thought of placing this in my top 10 films of 2000-2010. Highly, highly recommend everyone to take a look at it. Highly.

Saw The Hobbit tonight 8/10

I saw the high framerate showing, and it was just a beautiful movie.

Loved the lead-in dwarf story, but a lot of the rest of it was just meh. I was very young when I had read the book so I don't remember a lot of the dialogue, but I didn't care for the injected humour.

Highlight of the night: Oz, the Great and Powerful trailer.

Really? Maybe it's just me, but it looks absolutely awful. Another "all style no substance" film (see: Alice In Wonderland). Also, Mila Kunis can't act at all.
