The Bourne Legacy - 6.5/10

Perfectly enjoyable, but quite anticlimatic. The major flaw was that it tried too hard to connect it to events taking place in the 3rd film. As a standalone film, it was good. But as a Bourne film, the weakest of the 4.


Whoa...is there an echo in here?


;p

Lincoln 6.5/10

Wasn't Lincoln a big ol' racist in the real world? The movie seems to suggest the exact opposite...

Yeah, I know ;)But really, it just fell very flat in comparison. Jeremy Renner was fine, but they didn't utilize him correctly. The story itself could have been much darker, which would have better utlized Renner.

i'm pretty sure that's how zombies are born.

Oh I agree. Just thought it was funny that your assessment of the movie was so similar.

Looking back, it's kind of stunning how severely lacking the motivations of the main character were. In the original Bourne trilogy, Bourne wanted to know who he was, wanted to protect his girl, wanted to avenge her, wanted to make amends for his past, etc., etc. There was a lot driving him, and making him a complex character.

But Aaron Cross just simply didn't want to die, and didn't want to be dumb again. That about sums it up.

Yes. He abolished slavery because he was a "big ol' racist"....

Actually, I was just reading a bit about it and he may have been racist.

Sorry, I had no clue this idea was floating around out there, then again it makes no diffirence to me, or anybody really.

I really couldn't believe that when it came up. So, the pills aren't keeping you alive. One you don't need to take anymore, so you are permanently a beast physically. Congrats! Oh, but you may be borderline retarded, so we better get the other pills. Looking back, that's when the Gilroy bros really botched it. Could they really not think of something better?

Yeah, I kind of smirked at that at the time. Upon reflection, I can't believe how retarded (pun intended) that plot device was. Up until that point, I thought he was dependent on the pills to stay alive (which would have made a lot more sense, and at least explained his motivation to acquire more).

Really answered the question about how far some people are willing to go just so they won't become a mongaloid.In reflection, I can't decide whether I should bump up my score by a point or decrease it. It's funny, but definitely offensive. This is a toughy.

Back to reviews, I guess.

The Brothers Solomon - 7/10

I watched it a few weeks ago. I should apologize ahead of time, because I know this film is absolutely terrible, but I put it in the same category as Idiocracy. As much as I love Will Arnett, I cannot help but smile when Will Forte is on the screen. He's so likeable.

The Hobbit

7.5/10

It was an enjoyable movie for sure, I liked it, but if I had to rate it based on accuracy to the book it would be more like, 2/10, but I don't expect movies based on books to be word for word, that's just silly. However a few creative changes they made bothered me a bit and I wish they did it a bit more, by the book, the party at Bag End and the finding of the ring mostly, the Azog and Dol Guldur sub plots were fine, I always enjoy a deeper look into the Tolkien mythology.

I remember people complaining about the frames per second, personally I didn't notice anything.

Looking forward to the second part.
