    Good film. Kind of drags on though.

    Nadal will prolly pronounce it "Go hira" since they don't do the J.


    I saw the first 20 mins of Lord of the Rings (I) for the millionth time. Will continue tonight. Hopefully this gets me back to watching movies.

    Well, The Amazing Spiderman 2 was.... something. Good thing I didn't pay for the ticket. ;)

    Remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels, spinoffs, and adaptations= GOAT

    ALL IS LOST

    Our man vs. the ocean in one of the most understated and riveting performances I've seen so far. The fact that I watched it during a loud thunderstorm only increased its visceral affect.

    I thought Captain Phillips was excellent. This is better.

    There are 'original' movies out there, but they aren't marketed well unless there's a lot of money or a big name behind the project.

    Thank you. :)

    This one (below) is not a remake or a retelling for sure.

    Leon The Professional. 1994, Jean Reno, Gary Oldman and Natalie Portman (debut). Interesting and pretty good.

    Finally saw "Hachiko, a dog story" the other day.



    Late edit: forgot to mention that Leon is a big fan of Gene Kelly musicals :)

    I watched 'Pompeii' in 3D.
    Very quick analysis: Blah.
    The makers didn't want any plot or actual history to come confound on the special effects way.

    Ah yes,I loved that scene where they were dressing up as famous people and the only one Leon knew was Gene Kelly.

    The Truman Show. Still a great film...

    A Million Ways to Die in the West

    Most of the jokes fall flat in this lame parody. Unlike "Blazing Saddles" which treats the western with a certain affection, MacFarlane seems to smirk a bit too much at the genre and winds up seeming like an outsider in his own movie.

    Why does MacFarlane talk so fast in that film?

    His acting was featureless and the worst thing about the film. He should have either gotten someone else to play his role or stayed in and hired someone else to direct. Neil Patrick Harris was very funny in the film.

    He was the director as well? Wow...

    I'm not surprised that NPH was the funny one.... He kept How I Met Your Mother going... and that show jumped the shark a few seasons in..

    Did not much care for Animal House.

    The scene of Bluto in the cafeteria filling up his p(l)ate reminded me of someone who dances while playing :)

    The Game(1997). I like Michael Douglas but found this film a bit of a mess

    Saw the new Tom Cruise movie (Edge of Tomorrow). I thought it was OK, a bit too much Groundhog Day but all in all a fine film.

    Just got home from watching 'neighbors'. Hilarious...but that type of comedy isn't for everyone.

    Thought Jeepers Creepers 2 was better than 1, which was really good. Looking forward to 3.

    Insidious 2... Absolutely hated myself for watching this enjoyable movie because I was scared the whole time. :evil: I thought the haunting was better than the 1st one too.

    Also watched Neighbors, it was pretty funny. :)

    If you have seen the previous XMEN then yes you will love it, if you like First Class you will really like Future Past.....and there is a very end of credit scene so don't leave early.

    Hmm, I disagree there. Yes it was really good, but more haunting than the first? IMO, I dont think so...

    Saw Splice. Started off as sci-fi-ish but then became a horror movie, a lot like Species without a sexy lady.

    I just can't get excited about blockbusters anymore. Prefer the smaller budget movies that take out all the BS.

    Naked (1993). Stunning film by Mike Leigh,one of the best of the 90s.

    Saw Godzilla. Disjointed. Meandering. Poor character and monster development. Only rated 2 lobs out of 5.

    Upstream Color - Interesting movie from the guy who made Looper. But quite tough to follow at times.

    Second this. If Jolie wasn't in it, would not have even been a movie at all. Awful even with her.
