The Italian Job: 8/10

Love heist type movies. Had some funny parts too.


Best part was when the movie was over.

My wife watched a foreign movie on Netflix yesterday - Silence of Love. I caught a few minutes of it here and there, but was too busy to sit and watch. She seemed to really enjoy it though.

But I had to comment on the song at the end of the movie, which the lead character sings (think it is same title as the movie). It was stunningly gorgeous. I am never the type to go search out a song I heard in a movie, but I'm certainly going to do so for this one.

Django 9/10

Thought the movie lived up to the high expectations and was a very solid. I enjoyed the action to well done.

The Campaign 7/10

Went in with lower expectations seeing how people either loved or hated this movie. I was actually enjoying it and it definitely had some funny moments that made laugh.

This is 40 7/10

Watched this with my girlfriend and I was probably more into then she was thought it was actually pretty funny. Paul Rud plays the same character he usually does but he's a funny dude.

The Count of Monte Cristo (Jim Kaveezil, Guy Pearce) - 7/10

Book is a 10/10 for me, and the movie managed to keep most of the important elements of the book, or as much as can be expected for a 2 hour film. The ending never sat well with me, didn't like how they made it all happy family ending, but I guess you need closure.

Men In Black 3 - 6.5/10 Most of the movie was typical goofiness which I don't really enjoy (not funny enough to be a comedy and not serious enough to be a drama). Still better than Looper.

A zombie movie that's more a movie about zombies with a love story twist. Quite enjoyable actually, even as a date movie. Cheers.

Get the Gringo 7/10 - It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. It tries a little too hard to be Tarantino-esque, and the plot is all kinds of stupid, but Mel Gibson can still carry an action film and the setting was really cool.

8 1/2 - Pacific Cinematheque is showing a 35mm print of this right now. I went to see it because it's generally considered to be Fellini's masterpiece and one of the best films ever made and I'm trying to see as many of the classics as I can, but I'm not too sure what I thought of this one. There were some images that really stuck with me, but to be honest the whole thing seemed kind of masturbatory, and I caught myself checking my watch a couple of times. I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I had seen the rest of Fellini's stuff. I dunno. It wasn't terrible, but out of all the arthouse "classics" that I've seen I definitely got the least out of this one.

Play It Again, Sam - 7/10

Woody Allen plays a neurotic film critic obsessed with Humphry Bogart, who is trying to get back in the dating game. It's a simple, somewhat shallow movie, but if you like Woody Allen's brand of comedy, it is downright hilarious at times. But if you're not a fan, this one certainly won't change your mind.

The scene where he tries to pick up the depressed girl at the Art Gallery made me howl. Soooooo funny.

Perhaps the quintessential Woody Allen joke

My favourite film director/writer hands down. That movie has some really great scenes, but some other bits (nightclub scene) are just so bizarrely dated that they become funny for the wrong reasons

Thank you Netflix US for making the next two reviews possible.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi - 9/10

Like a lot of people, I love a really good meal. Whenever there is a get together among friends/family, it is always insisted that it be done at our house as I absolutely love cooking for people. I would prefer to spend the entire evening cooking for company than have someone make it for me. The entire process is something I absolutely look at as an art. Most people would enjoy "Jiro Dreams of Sushi," simply because the man is an absolute perfectionist from how he trains his employees (apprentices won't even make an egg sushi until 10 years in) to where he sits the guests in his 10 seat restaurant. Such an interesting story.

Re-Animator - 9.5/10

Why it took me until now to see "Re-Animator," I will never know. What an absolute blast of a B-Movie cult film this is. Although the entire film is nearly flawless, what makes it even better is that it is only 84 minutes; making every single scene necessary. I don't want to say or give anything away. Just watch it and fall in love with possibily the best horror/comedy of all time.

Yeah, I'm also a big fan.

I also loved the part where he's all "Lean on me babe...", then he bumps into the small tree, and seems genuinely hurt and upset. The timing and the look on his face was just perfect.

Too dark and psychological for you? I'd give it an 8/10. I just bought the Blu-Ray (Now I have all the Bond movies..muahahhaaha!)
I thought they tried too hard to make it like Dark Knight/Rises. I do think they need to hire better writers.
Purvis and Wade have had too long a run, and their track record isn't that great.

They wrote:
The World is Not Enough - Ok
Die Another Day- Ugh.
I won't count Casino Royale as it's partly based on a Fleming Novel.
Quantum of Solace - Ugh
Skyfall- Actors make up for the writing.

I'd get Paul Haggis to write and direct the next one if he wants. (Crash/Million Dollar Baby/Helped with the dialogue on Casino Royale)

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.

ya. i see this happen a lot with Tarantino... del Toro didn't direct Mama, he was the exec producer. A little different.

It was dark and psychological? I assume you are being facetious considering your negative view of the writing (which I share), which to me, is 90% of the movie.

The acting was fine but I don't care who was in the movie, the movie itself suuuuuucccccckkkkkeeeed.

*** SPOILER ALERT ***

Why was there some list with every operative's name on it (Mission Impossible did this plotline better a decade ago)? Why does Bond dig shrapnel out of his own shoulder (Manchurian Candidate)? How does M16 get hacked and blown up (Die Hard) from an outside source in China? Why does the resident genius Q, decide to download the terrorist's harddrive to the same network that runs said terrorist's cell, after capture? How does anything that happens after this point in the movie make any friggen sense?

This movie was an embarassing plagiaristic wasteland of lazy writing. Shame on the critics who gave this monstrosity a positive review, it doesn't earn it.

For the record, I didn't mind Casino Royale, even though the poker scenes were laughably amateurish. Whoever wrote and directed those scenes either didn't care to understand anything about poker or were horribly misled.

^^^While I certainly didn't dislike Skyfall as much as you did, I absolutely have to agree for the most part. The plot holes in Bond movies don't bother me so much, as majority of Bond films have never been about fantastic writing or plot. However, I just didn't see why Skyfall received as high of praise as it did get. I remember seeing it, but I don't remember being blown away by it.

Anyway, another review after watching a movie on Valentine's Day.


The Decoy Bride - 3/10

What can I say, it's a romantic/"comedy". These movies, save a few, are absolutely retarded. The Decoy Bride is no different. I like all the actors that are in it: David Tennant, Alice Eve, and Kelly MacDonald (such a great accent). However, the film is really stupid and I saw zero chemistry between MacDonald and Tennant. Just really dumb.

If anyone is using Netflix on xbox, ps3, apple tv, android, etc and wants to learn how to switch it to American netflix 100% free, PM me. I finally did it the other day and cannot be happier.

BTW, i looked this up, since i am not selling a service or advocating anything illegal (since you are still paying for netflix) I am allowed to offer this.
