    The teddy basically made it for me, though I do find Mila and Mark annoying actors, it was a nice blend for them to play these roles, dunno.

    What else will they play on the bus ride home from uni?

    It wasn't a bad movie or unfunny. But they advertise it as the funniest move ever and that's not even close.

    They played that?

    Did they? :O Wow, did not know that, it as fun but not the BEST. O_o

    Yeah, the TV just sort of started I was expecting a sleepy and rainy way home, but the set started playing, and it was all good after that.

    I have great memories of several dozen episodes of Family Guy that make me laugh (longer than a movie obviously ). I can't remember a single funny scene from Ted that really sticks out. I don't know if his humor is better suited for cartoons, or if he didn't work with the same writers for Ted that he does with his cartoons or what.

    Just watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I really like this movie. Its been a while for me to have watched a Drama + Romance kind of movie. I haven't read the book. Hopefully, I will find it here.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I just finished watching The Master. A good, but can be a bit boring, psychological drama. I could understand why it was snubbed for Best Picture but Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman for Best Actor/Supporting are just not right.

    EDIT: I'm watching the Academy, so Hoffman and Phoenix wasn't snubbed. My bad (haven't really reviewed the nominations). Really great to see that the winners were varied from different films.

    Family Guy honestly sucks though, far too overrated.


    The fifth Die Hard movie was good. Not Die Hard good, IMO, but it was good enough. I was sleepy as hell and dozed off few times near the beginning though.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    Here's a short summary of thoughts on all the movies of 2012 I watched (pretty much):

    Life of Pi is one of the most visually stunning movies I have ever seen. And the story is one of those great ones, it drew me in right away with very little means before the really amazing visuals punched me in the head and made me wish the whole world looked like that, all the time. And the movie has a nice message as well, the way I interpreted it anyway. 8/10, bordering on a 9.

    Django Unchained was awesome. The characters were fantastic, both due to the great script and the astonishing acting performances. DiCaprio's best role apart from What's Eating Gilbert Grape, if you can even compare those two roles. Also, Waltz shines again and Samuel L Jackson's character is greatly fascinating and well-written, not to mention well acted. Full of great Tarantinoey dialogue and a very Tarantinoey revenge plot with some buddy movie elements incorporated into it, I loved this one. Call me uncultured and fanboy but I really did. 9/10

    Seven Psychopaths was another really entertaining movie. Well written with many hilarious moments, a lot of meta humor and most of all great, great characters. With a cast of Colin Farrell (teaming up with In Bruges director/writer Martin McDonagh again), Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson and coolest man that ever lived Tom Waits, this one kept me entertained throughout the entire thing. I can't guarantee you'll feel the same way, but either way it's worth watching. 9/10

    Moonrise Kingdom is another one of those movies I get if others don't enjoy as much as I did (my girlfriend mostly thought it was weird and awkward). If you've seen Wes Anderson's other films, you know what you're getting into. Quirky, cutesy, tongue-in-cheek and just so very feel-good in a grey, yet hopeful way. The main characters are just so likably weird which is something I've been kind of missing in the last couple of Anderson's movies, and the ensemble is splendid (though just look at the cast list and you'd figure that). It's hard to describe why I enjoyed it as much as I did, but I recommend it to anyone who like Wes Anderson and that kind of indie comedies in general. 8/10

    I saw Silver Linings Playbook and it was pretty good but very uneven... "tonally" (if that's a word). Jennifer Lawrence deserves the Oscar though, she was the bright spot. Bradley Cooper showed that he's a darn good actor as well and not just "the Hangover guy". Robert De Niro was better than he's been lately but I don't think he deserved to be nominated for an Oscar, to be honest. 7/10

    Brave was disappointing. I would've wanted to see the original movie before they re-wrote it halfway through the animation process... Where basically it was supposed to be much darker in its tone, the "bad bear" would play a much bigger part and just basically not as many half-assed jokes that barely worked. Nice animation, however. And the story, though basically just bits and pieces from 10 other films, kept me watching throughout the whole thing. So it wasn't bad. 6/10

    Wreck-It Ralph on the other hand was really funny, clever and just so entertaining to watch. Disney Animation studios have actually been delivering good movies more steadily than Pixar lately, with Princess and the Frog, Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph. For the stunning animation, the great characters and all-round hilarity it gets 8/10.

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was fun. Much more fun than that other Lincoln movie seems... Honestly, Daniel Day-Lewis is the only thing that draws me to that one. I guess Americans will enjoy it more, but it's just a guess. Anyway, I had no expectations for this one and maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much. It feels sort of poorly paced and it's not anything spectacular when it comes to the script, but the style and the over-the-topness of it made it a fun watch for me. Just don't take it seriously, whatever you do. 7/10

    Men In Black 3 was a lot better than I thought, and an actual worthy sequel to the first one, unlike MIIB... This one was funny, pretty clever, had some great characters and Josh Brolin is spot-on as a young Agent K. Still, even though it was entertaining I wouldn't say it's a must-watch. Watch it if you liked the first one! 7/10

    Taken 2 was a major disappointment. That's all I have to say. 4/10 (for reference, the original is a solid 8/10 imo)

    I don't have time to talk about The Hobbit now, since I have a lot to say about it. But I'd give it an 8/10.

    The ones I plan to see still are Skyfall, Looper, Les Miserables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Amour, Flight, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Frankenweenie, Cloud Atlas and possibly some other ones I'm forgetting. Argo, maybe. Lincoln, maybe.

    Please tell me if there are any real must-see movies I've missed this year.

    I totally agree with Orgz rating. Funny thing Brave won the Oscars for Animated Feature Film. I didn't find it all too good. I am a bit surprised to see Rise of the Guardians was not even nominated . It was predicted by many magazines, blogs, etc. Actually, I find it better than all the other nominations.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I've got Rise of the Guardians downl... err, rented. I hate my town's movie theatre, as the few animated movies that actually get to be shown are always only shown with Swedish dub. This one wasn't even shown here, though. But I've heard Rise of the Guardians is a movie that should really be seen in the theatre because it has splendid 3D (even a few people really opposed to 3D have said this is one of the few where they thought it improved the movie). I don't care much for 3D, though, so I hope I'll enjoy it on a TV screen!

    I watched it at home, at my own little cinema. It was a DVD and it wasn't 3D but I enjoyed the animation. Once I get my 3D glasses for the projector, I will surely watch it in 3D and of course, on bluray.

    This second half of the year hasn't been very good for me and movies, I must admit. There's been many good films out and I've not had time to see them all.

    Skyfall- Solid film. For some reason, it's gotten a lot of bad words but I didn't find it bad. The best Bond film? I don't think so, maybe Casino Royale is better but it has better cinematography in my opinion, though more could've been done with the villain I felt. 7/10

    Looper- Loved this film, I can't believe I didn't watch this when it came out( only saw it 2 weeks ago). There could have been a sequel where the villain's story was expanded because it had potential to. Both James Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis were both very good, the former in particular. Good cast, very well shot, story wasn't the most complex of things but sometimes it's best that it isn't and you let it combine with other elements to make the movie standout. 8/10( borderline 9).

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower- Quite the moving story this was, I think someone may have written a summary of it a few posts above, so I won't bother. Endearing cast and some good humour. It really surprised me how much I enjoyed it. 8/10

    Out of the 3 I've listed, I'd say see Looper first, then Wallflower then Skyfall. I also have plans to see Seven Psychopaths, Cloud Atlas, Frankenweenie, Wreck-It-Ralph, Django Unchained, Life of Pi. I can't believe how poor my cinema experience has been lately .

    I don't know if you intentionally not mentioned this but maybe Cabin in the Woods... maybe. I enjoyed that film, you know when something cliche gets pimped to look twisted and awesome. It's one of those you either love or hate movies. And it was co-written by, as they call "The god of all nerds", Joss Whedon so it's at least worth a try, right?

    2012 was a good year for movies, imo. Though I'll say that my favorites were, mainly because I surprisingly enjoyed and loved them, Moonrise Kingdom and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    and Wreck-It-Ralph should have won the Academy!!
