Silver Linings Playbook may be my fave of the year (2012). Such a great story and amazing characters and the acting was fantastic. Cooper and Lawrence together were perfect IMO.

The more I think about that movie, the more I hated it

De Niro was good, though, which is refreshing.

Here we go.

Silver Linings Playbook: 8/10. Great film. I thought the chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence worked out okay. She's destroying other actresses her age.

Les Mis: 9/10. Never really appreciated the musical until I saw the movie. I'm ashamed to say that. That'll be the first thing I watch if I ever go to London or New York.

Django Unchained: 6/10. I didn't really feel it from Foxx or Tarantino for that matter. I also don't know Westerns at all. My own failure, I guess.

Killing Them Softly 3/10

Stand Up Guys 4/10

Two boring talk-fests with very little action. My wife would probably rate them differently.

We're going to see Hansel and Gretyl: Witch Hunters next week sometime.

The movie made me want to dust of my RDR and play it on PS3.

Lots of action and I liked the story-line.

Zero Dark Thirty-6/10

It was okay. Erratically paced. Characters were uninteresting and about half of the movie seemed like boring filler. Perhaps I went into it with my expectations too high, but its not worth the Oscar hype. If anything its Oscar bait.

Robot and Frank 8/10

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie even though it was a little slow but still a very good movie about a guy with worsening dementia that be friends a robot. Frank would be the ultimate butler .

I enjoyed it. I generally don't like action movies but I thought the Avengers was great. It had a solid script and the action was good. It was a very entertaining movie. The characters weren't exactly deep or complex but it was fun watching them interact.

7 Psychopaths - 8/10

Very funny, well written. Between this and In Bruges I am really starting to like this director/writer. I loved this movie from start to finish and Sam Rockwell deserves a bunch of credit/kudos for his role.

Zero Dark Thirty - 6/10

I dont get the critical love appeal with this movie. It was boring, awkwardly paced and too long. Watch if you must, but I really didnt enjoy it all that much. Chastain as always, was solid however.

Mama - 3/10

For a movie being lauded by the critics for how scary it is, and being directed by Guillermo Del Toro, this movie was awful. Maybe I am the only one who thinks the Unknown is scarier than the seen, but Del Toro throws that notion out the window in the first 4 minutes. Overshowing the "ghost" , not building tension at all, and inserting a cheesy ass story that doesnt explain 80% of the movie... Ugh. Why cant we get a decent horror movie.

Life of Pi - 9/10

The movie itself I would only give a 5 or 6 /10, however the visuals and use of 3D boosts it to a 9. It is truly beautiful and the most amazing use of 3D since Avatar.

I find this interesting because yesterday I went and saw it. I give it 9/10.

Just the build up to everything was interesting and informative. I was also blown away how it wasn't a merica propaganda film. I found the film to feel very real with the violence and torture scenes. They did a good job with the progression over a time period of 10 years. No this is not your bang bang shoot em up type move but if it was I think it would have sucked big time for that. People tend to forget how long it took to get to the point of killing OBL and the story of finding him is far more interesting and important than the pointy end of the stick poking him.

Don't read the following if you haven't seen it or don't want it to be spoiled (not that you don't already know how it ends).

Spoiler


I left the film with more questions than answers and that was the difference for me.

I agree, I liked that, but I felt that the execution for the rest of the movie was poorly done. I didn't care about any of the main characters, Maya was boring. There was no character development, the characters all felt more like plot devices to a plot that wasn't quite there. It felt like half of the events it showed were completely irrelevant, and the movie was just showing you random things that happened along the way during the mission.

I know it's trying to portray the events as realistically as possible, but I felt like it could've taken some more creative leeway. If I wanted to watch the 'true story' I'd watch a documentary.

I'm with Mountain Man, saw ZD30 last week and would give it a 9. Oddly enough I walked out of the theatre specifically raving about the pacing of it, I felt like Bigelow perfectly drew out the tension in various scenes (the army base bombing is a good example) to just the right degree before releasing. But everything about that movie was excellent - editing, cinematography, acting (Gandolfini's few scenes especially).

So far I'd say it's the best movie I've seen from 2012. I liked it more than Lincoln although I feel that'll win BP at the oscars.

Just watched Searching For Sugar Man.

Holy crap, is that an excellent documentary. I can see why it was a big hit at Sundance.

If you are a fan of music and music history it's a Must See. Honestly, don't read anything about it first, just watch it.

ParaNorman - 6.5/10

After hearing some terrific buzz about it, wife and I thought it would be fun watch. It was ok at best. The first 5-10 minutes were quite interesting, then it tapered off for about an hour. The last 10 minutes were very well done. All in all, decent rental, but not worth owning. Unless, of course, you have kids that love it.


Men In Black 3 - 7/10

Very, very enjoyable. After the absolute trainwreck that was MIB 2, I was honestly never expecting a third film to come out, and I would have been completely happy with that. However, MIB 3 was actually fun. The only knock I have against it was that it seemed like the Will Smith show. He did fine, but it would have been good to have a little more Josh Brolin. BIGGEST PROBLEM: Why have Will Arnett in the film and then use him in one scene. That made me sad.
