I watched the town today. Great movie about some people from the charlestown neighbourhood who are doing some robberies. It's kinda to cool to see that Ben Affleck is a good actor and he is also a good director. Kinda sad that stupid movies like Armageddon, Pearl Harbor,... wasted his talent
i liked armageddon meh.
but i agree The Town is amazing ...you seen his other film he directed Gone Baby Gone that was brill..he reminds of Clint Eastwood does good films then directs amazing films.
Just watched "how to train your dragon". I really liked it, the plot was nice and the relationship between Hiccup and Toothless was very refreshing. Decent humor and great ending.
I just saw Tron Legacy with my friends earlier, and I found it to be very entertaining. It's not a movie everyone would love (since two of my friends actually fell asleep), but it's one of those movies that you have to see at least once in your lifetime (just like Avatar and The Matrix). 10/10
Last week i saw Skyline when i was high as shit and the Alien effects were awesome kinda reminded me of Starcraft but the plot end of the story was not up to par
Saw Tron Legacy today..im glad im not here writting how rubbish it is like i wanted to do after watching Pocahuntas in space ( Avatar) .
very enjoyable and the Daft Punk soundtrack fits perfect .
it not for everybody either like it or hate it..but me i love it..
(plus oliva wilde )
I just saw The Fighter. I liked it. Another solid movie for Marky Mark! Personally though, I think that the guy who played Dicky gave the better representation of character. Not the most action packed awesome movie in the universe, but as far as telling a true story about a guy most of us wouldn't know anything about, it did a good job. And I'm told the fights were genuine and they took a lot of care to do them right, including pausing production because people had broken faces.
"A" for effort I think. Worth the ticket.
I've seen quite a few movies lately so I figured I'd stop by to talk about them
First off I recently saw Tron Legacy and had to say I thoroughly enjoyed that. Even though it was PG and I had never seen the first Tron, I loved the action and the imagery of the Tron world that was created. Its a very wonderful movie visually and really action packed. Plus after seeing Jeff Bridges in Iron Man as Obadiah he has become one of my favorite actors.
As for Jeff Bridges, I also saw True Grit. I normally am not a Western fan but I liked the lineup of actors this movie had in it so I figured I'd go see it, plus Jeff Bridges was a must . Overall I have to say the movie delivered. It was pretty comical at times and had just enough gun blazing action to make me enjoy it. It was emotional in parts and the witty humor really made me happy. I also recommend seeing it.
Lastly I just saw Black Swan today and my leaving statement was HOLY CRAP. It was absolutely a great movie. Not a fan of ballet but the psychological thriller aspect of this movie amazed me. Its probably second in my book to Inception for movies that I've seen that made me go wtf and really had me thinking when I left the movie. Its not as developed as Inception but there is that element of shattering reality which I really loved. If your old enough and can handle a few rated R scenes then this movie is another must see.
Okay thanks for the reviews guys. I wanna watch Black Swan and the Fighter and Tron from all your posts...
I also saw True Grit and Black Swan over the holidays. Both good. Didn't feel ripped off at all. As far as Black Swan goes, I wasn't as blown away by it as everyone else, but I had never even heard about it until my man forced me to go (he's in love with Mila Kunis). It was good, don't get me wrong, but I found Portman to be annoying as f*** throughout, but I expect that was sort of what they were going for? I don't know, there's just something about fearful uptight women that gets on my nerves, which took away from enjoyment for me. The ending was great though. Beautiful performance. Wished the whole movie was more that and less twitchy woman/child, but erm, maybe that's the point? Also, only Mulholland Drive has creepier masturbation for those that are interested in that aspect.
True Grit was good. A solid movie and my man swears that it's actually better than the original, which he watched the other day. I saw parts of it and comparatively, I liked the little girl in the new one, and really couldn't stand her in the original. Matt Damon got on my nerves badly in the remake. I wish he wasn't in it. Other than that it was fine. There was something slow about it, but it wasn't enough for me to lose interest. Actually, the little girl was probably my favorite part of the remake. She played her part well.
OH! Omg. I watched Percy Jackson on HBO the other night and IT SUCKED! I've never seen such an emotionally vacant piece of crap! I fell asleep out of sheer boredom at the start of the journey! Barf. Not finishing that one. I'm not even compelled to try and list all the ways in which it sucked so bad as to make me boycott half way through.
Percy Jackson indeed was horrible. They killed the originality and the impact of the story. Clash of the Titans was no different either. I only watched it because of Sam.
I just saw Love and Other Drugs. I would like to say that it was completely disappointed not what I was expecting based on the initial trailers... it was a romance lovey-dubby story that I would rather not watch again... for any reason, not even for Harthway's naked scenes
A Walk to Remember made me cry in the movies even though I don't want to cry back then.
I also just watched Black Swan.
It was so-so. Yeah I get it, so then...? I think I share Kusachu's view in that the whole movie ought to have been made as like the ending scenes were. That would have made it more impressive. The way the movie was played out was sort of- muted, like not quite there.
