well sure the basic plot was kind of crap. But the underlying theme of the horrors in his life are kind of thrilling. It's definitely a shock to the system in how the culture differs.
The Descendants - 7/10. It was an enjoyable movie. Check it out.
[QUOTE=TerrorShield;34814007]Anyone can recommend a good monster survival movie? Akin to The Mist or Cloverfield?[/QUOTE] Wasn't there a korean version of cloverfield? I heard its got good reviews, but anyone here seen it?
its all about the dance at the end of the Slumdog Millonaire, man
I really did not enjoy Slumdog. It was a bit sentimental.
The Adventures of Tintin 8/10
[QUOTE=Rong;34818811]The Adventures of Tintin 8/10[/QUOTE] Isn't this like your second time rating this movie? Or is something wrong with me
[QUOTE=shian;34818140]Rusty have you ever turned off your brain in an attempt to enjoy a bad movie? I did it with mission Impossible 4, and it was good.[/QUOTE] But mission impossible 4 wasn't a bad movie in the first place.

Das Boot - It's pretty good and the ending is sad. Music is amazing. [url]http://open.spotify.com/track/7sEeJZUEfvmcEUrVLzTsNV[/url]
Synecdoche, New York - What the fuck just happened/10 I think I need to rewatch it.
[QUOTE=icemaz;34822087]Synecdoche, New York - What the fuck just happened/10 I think I need to rewatch it.[/QUOTE] That movie bent my brain. Must be careful.
I saw the last half of that film possibly the most confused I've ever been at a film
watch it from start to finish for more brain death.
I just noticed I've never seen any true mindfuck movies, except some parts of eraserhead is there anything "lighter" that you'd still consider a mindfuck?
Ponyo- 7/10

Sideways 8/10 Amazing movie. Great story, good acting and a very fitting soundtrack. Lovely movie, definitely worth a watch if you haven't already.
Ghost Rider 2 3/10 Some awesome effects and camera angles, but as with many comic book movies, the story is absolute trash. And about those good camera angles - for every awesome one that fit the scene perfectly, there about about 4 that made you cringe due to how awkward/shaky they are. Many of the fight scenes use this uber shaky camera shit, probably to make it look like the camera man is in the fight, but it just makes the film seem sloppy and semi difficult to keep track of who is attacking who. I cant even remember the names of the 2 main bad guys because of how little/awful the dialogue there is, the movie focusing on close ups of cages face and various explosions. Ghost Rider himself has some awful one-liners that are obviously meant to be witty, but end up making you sigh at how bad they are. Think Duke Nukem Forever. For example - he kills the first bad guy on a road and says "Road Kill". Not a single person in the audience laughed at this, but by the time this happened, a sizable amount of the audience had left the theater. The ending is piss awful - while the final fight scene kept me on the edge somewhat, how he defeats the second bad guy felt extremely rushed. I cant bash the effects - I really liked them, but they should of dropped the extremely large amount of dosh onto a better script/actors. This is by far my least favorite Cage film. Also, you know an action movie is bad when you are struggling to stay awake during key fight scenes.
The Collector 8/10 I actually enjoyed it.

[QUOTE=shian;34818702]Wasn't there a korean version of cloverfield? I heard its got good reviews, but anyone here seen it?[/QUOTE] I think you're talking about The Host. I just saw that last week (I'm on a monster/survival movie binge right now) Really good movie, especially since they depict the monster in broad daylight throughout the movie, unlike the few glances in Cloverfield. [QUOTE=booster;34815213]War of the Worlds?[/QUOTE] Saw it, I have it on DVD. Thanks for trying though, one of my favorite movies. [QUOTE=FoodStuffs;34815794] really? he probably knows that one. go with the fog. it's like the mist but kinda lamer. as for cloverfield go with [REC] (the spanish version). [REC] is basically the godfather of modern documentary style fiction horror along with blair witch project (like the film is recorded with a hand cam and what you are watching is what the characters recorded). and if you haven't seen it, blair witch project is a good one too. it's like paranormal activity but not shit. when i say godfather and all that shit i mean spearheaded it well into mainstream by giving JJ the inspiration for cloverfield.[/QUOTE] Yes, I plan on watching the Thing this week. I'll check out the Fog. Heard about [REC], although I like monsters over paranormal. I'll be sure to check it out though. Seen Blair Witch Project already.

[b]Back to the future[/b] - 10/10 [b]Back to the future: Part II[/b] - 9/10 [b]Back to the future: Part III[/b] - 10/10 Out of all the iconic 80's movies, these are my favorites. I'm not sure how I feel about none of them really having an end (except for the third). Unlike, say, the Bourne trilogy, you NEED to watch the other movies for them to make sense. Acting was awesome, effects were good for the time it was made, and camera work was alright. The writing was great, I really loved all the characters (well, hated some of them). I really like how it changes every movie, but still keeping the same style, like how the third one is a lot more intense than the first. The first movie is still my favorite, but if I had to make a "top 10" list, I'd include the 3 movies as one, because it really gets better if you watch the three in sequence. [sp]I remembered almost everything from the first time I watched it, but I'm actually glad I forgot the ending to the third one, that was really awesome[/sp]

The Shawshank Redemption - 9/10 Powerful movie. Though the ending isn't quite as punchy as I feel it should be, it was kind of too "soft".
