I didn't think it was that bad but I do agree to a degree.
Haywire - 8/10 Quite liked it. The action was pretty good and didn't give me the feeling one side was vastly superior at one point. The story was pretty good albeit a tad vague at times.
I saw [B]Titanic[/B] for the first time- in a cinema, which was cool, the 3d on the other hand was okay I guess I lose all sense of depth 20 minutes in so it didn't really bother me. Anyways, quite a good film. It did perhaps drag on a bit at times but ye apart from that i liked it. Very sad (i cried (as in teared up no weeping)) 8/10

How they managed to do that is beyond me.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;35653550]I'll save myself the energy of typing up an essay. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX7fzIkubtg[/media][/QUOTE] Thanks for posting this, I've watched about 3 hours of their vids today and subscribed.
American Pie - The Reunion/The Meeting/whatever it's called If you're a fan of American Pie, or if you just love childish jokes, you're gonna find this movie amazing. I mean, for American Pie standards, it's a pretty good movie, it's like the other ones, you're going to love them if you're a teenager, watching it with your teenager friends. It uses the exact same formula, which is only a good thing if you enjoyed them. But again, it has lots of cliches, it has dick jokes, fart jokes, pretty meh stuff, too. Sometimes, the joke is just "oh hey, they're having sex" or "hey, it's a penis". Another thing I didn't like in this movie was that the ending didn't have as much impact as the other ones, it just felt too "okay", nothing special happened. Basically, it's a good movie if you like American Pie, but it's far from being enjoyable if you like more "mature" humor. As for me, I liked it. Not a movie I'm going to remember forever, but I think I'm going to see the other American Pie movies again (I'm not sure if this is a good idea) because of it

Evangelion: 1.11 9.7/10 One of the best anime movies I have seen in a long time. I usually don't watch anime, but this is really fucking good.
[QUOTE=Scot;35677721]They pretty much 3D modelled the entire movie.[/QUOTE] I know, but not much of the 3D conversion was all that memorable or effective for me.
[QUOTE=AK'z;35678524]I know, but not much of the 3D conversion was all that memorable or effective for me.[/QUOTE] At least it wasn't as bad as Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace's 3D conversion. There was ONE moment where the 3D worked for me and it was in the middle of the pod-racing scene when Anakin holds a metal rod towards the screen for 3 seconds.
Shutter Island 8.5/10 - What a twist that had at the end of it holy fuck excellent movie with yet some more mind fuckery involving Di Caprio.... about to start watching The Shawshank Redemption in a minute one of my favourite films.
Trainspotting I'm not sure how I feel about this movie, but I think I want to see it again also, 11/10 writing
[QUOTE=KlaseR;35673456]Do you think I could still enjoy it even though I find sport really annoying?[/QUOTE] yes like if i get invited to a game of any kind i'd go if it had intense moments. really going to a game is more about getting fucked up and being with your friends. it's like a long somewhat boring movie you goto just as an excuse to have fun. but, this movie is as akz said much more about the non sports bits than they are about the sports bits. there is a bit of sports movie tension in the end, like one bit, and it's pretty god damn suspenseful if you ask me.
[b]Memento[/b] - 9/10 [sp]So was Lenny bad? Or was he the protagonist I thought he was throughout the whole movie? Was Teddy really the good guy, were his lies actually the truth?[/sp] I like this movie a lot, but goddamn it makes my head hurt.

Was Teddy really the good guy, were his lies actually the truth?[/sp] I like this movie a lot, but goddamn it makes my head hurt.[/QUOTE] I suggest another viewing of the film, with those questions in mind while you watch. That's what I did. If you want to know (what I think) right now, instead of watching again: [sp]We have no reason not to believe Teddy, seems like he really was the cop assigned to the attack on Lenny and his wife's case (he got Lenny the files, so he seems legit). He's been trying to help Lenny find this John G. guy, hoping that it will make him feel better and maybe even remember having his revenge (if we apply the Sammy story on Lenny then it seems some people think his condition is psychological rather than physical (which is true, he made himself forget he killed his wife, and made a new memory about so called "Sammy")). So after awhile, Teddy and Lenny find this John G. person, Lenny gets his revenge and Teddy takes the picture and Lenny with a shit-eating grin. That doesn't last very long, and Lenny wants to find John G. again. Lenny destroys some of the report papers so he could find another John G. and have an unsolvable mystery. Teddy still helps Lenny find this guy, but dresses up the facts so they fit other people called John/James G., like drug dealers and such, so basically Teddy made Lenny into a vigilante. Lenny finds about this, gets angry at Teddy, writes "Don't trust his lies" on the Teddy photo and Fact #6 - Teddy's license plate numbers. This way Lenny makes sure he would find out later that Teddy is [i]the[/i] John/James G. so he could kill him for lying to him.[/sp]
he's basically a [sp]serial killer who goes around killing people named john g[/sp]
At any rate it's a fantastic movie.
The Thing (2011): 6.2/10 I have mixed feelings about this. I love the '82 classic, and I've been wanting to see the prequel since it came out. I mean, it wasn't as bad as I had expected, but it wasn't really all that great either. I hate how they just had to write in some American characters in again. Would've been cooler if all characters were Norwegian, and everything was subtitled. Also, I didn't like how we got to see the [sp]Alien spaceship[/sp]. It took away some of the mystery around 'the thing' imo. The CGI wasn't actually all that bad though, and I even spotted a shot or two were it looked like they used animatronics. Also, it was nice how they showed [sp]Lars and the other dude chasing the dog in the chopper during the credits.[/sp] I was hoping that scene would be in there.

I will watch it again, as I do really love how the movie is executed. But your post really cleared up a lot. Cant decide whether to rate you friendly or informative.
Queen Of Africa 8/10 Great movie, well directed and well acted. It almost had one of the most depressing endings but there was more afterwards so that was good.

[b]Taxi Driver[/b] - 9/10 A very good, and oddly creepy movie about a normal ex-marine that slowly goes crazy.
The Grey - 9/10 I found the change from "everybody getting chased by a serial killer" to "everybody getting chased by wolves" was rather a welcome one. And even with the wolves being a main driving force in the film they manage to not be the main focus, which I appreciate considering only about a quarter of the entire movie directly dealt with what you would call the main antagonists. It was more about how the men were fighting to survive and all the psychological and emotional shit that comes with being forced into such a situation. In some areas the dialogue is difficult to understand, doesn't make sense, or comes across as a little cheesy (like the part at the end where [sp]Liam Neeson says "Oh lord, it's their den," or something to that effect[/sp]) but the issue isn't so bad that you don't enjoy the movie.
Liam is the alpha male
[QUOTE=GhostProject;35692541][b]Taxi Driver[/b] - 9/10 A very good, and oddly creepy movie about a normal ex-marine that slowly goes crazy.[/QUOTE] It felt like an episode of Courage The Cowardly Dog for me. Even when nothing bad was happening, you felt uneasy.
Captain america 3/10
just came back from an australian midnight premiere for the avengers 10/10 joss whedon please write and direct everything ever
[B]Paranormal Activity 3[/B] - 8/10... Probably my favorite of the 3 movies, took the best bits of Poltergeist and made it even creepier... and damn that ending. I really dig the filming style of these movies and definitely wouldn't mind seeing it done more often with horror movies. It has to have good acting though, otherwise the whole damn thing would fall apart.
Tin Tin - 7/10 I thought it was a very enjoyable movie.
The Cabin in the Woods - 8.5/10 Was so much fun to watch, I would recommend it to any horror comedy fans.
