Wednesdays Movies

Hardy Candy [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2005 psychological thriller starring Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson, directed by David Slade, who is more known by most people as the director of 30 Days of Night. This is a solid movie, always fun to watch for the great performances. Wilsons character Jeff is an older man who has a very "odd" relationship with a girl online named Haley. They finally meet and they end up at Jeffs house, where it turns out Haley has been prepared for this moment and drugs him, setting up for some very disturbing events that follow. This is quite the creep movie, and very thought-provoking as to the justice or injustice done by the girl.

Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia - ** (4/10)
- 2009 straight-to-DVD action flick starring Misterrrrrrrrr Kennedy.........Kennedy. And some other guys who are less-than-talented actors. In a time of unrest in Colombia due to the F.A.R.C. rebels, the United States dispatches some soldiers behind enemy lines, where they get caught in a double-cross during a peace conference and end up being blamed for it. Left alone by their government, they are forced to fight their way out and try to rectify the situation. It is basically when i expected, a lot of explosions and gunplay, but no real brains to the operation. Very weak dialogue, especially Kennedy's character, who couldn't even get me to smirk, and just weak execution in general. Hopefully the series is finished.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Thursdays Movies

Die Hard [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1988 action flick starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman. Obviously a huge favorite among action fans, this is a pretty solid action movie. It combines some excellent shots with a very nice set of action scenes. The building is great, as the floors with construction offer a lot of extra width to work with. Alan Rickman rocks it, Willis rocks it, very few complaints with this film. My only main one is the FBI acts completely unrealistic and like idiots, but other than that, great compelling stuff.

Duck Soup - **** (9/10)
- 1933 comedy starring the Marx Brothers. This is considered pretty much their best movie by most critics, and as of right now, having seen a few of their pictures that i have, i have to agree with it. It is absolutely hilarious, with just about every line causing me to smile. It is completely zany, some wild story about Freedonia getting a new leader who doesnt like the leader of Sylvania and causes a feud between the nations, leading to a war. It is just pure Marx Brothers comedy. Every fan of comedy should check it out.

After Hours - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1985 dark comedy directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Griffin Dunne. A man ends up going to meet a girl he met earlier that he met, and winds up in one of the craziest "whatever can go wrong will go wrong" situations in the city. It is set up like an urban nightmare, and it is great filmmaking. We are continually surprised and prone to laugh whenever the next event goes wrong, and we are constantly rooting for our protagonist to just make it out of the next situation. It is movies like this, that tie everything together, that make movies very fun to watch.

Strangers on a Train - **** (9/10)
- 1951 thriller directed by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. A tennis player who is getting ready to be divorced with his wife to be with another woman meets an odd man on the train who offers up the idea of a double murder: tennis player kills his father, he kills his wife. What he thinks was simply a joke suddenly turns into the role thing. Fantastic performances here, and a great piece of art. You are constantly wondering where the antagonist is going to show up next, and the creepy feeling comes back every time he does. Just an excellent film with a superb climax.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2008 comedy starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, and Kristen Bell. This is just one of those solid Apatow comedies, packed with nice sexual comedy and hilarious characters with great one-liners. Peter has been dumped by Sarah Marshall, the television star of the show he composes the music for, and ends up going to Hawaii to try and get away;, but she is there with her new boyfriend, cool-and-slightly-dumb Aldous Snow. It is just a great comedy that is mostly hit than miss. Very fun watch, and one of the best comedies of the year.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

7 Pounds. ****1/2
Impressive movie. It's a bit hard to understand depending on your interpreting literacy.
Shouldn't be hard to get the jist though, the storyline and executing was haunting. The only thing that threw me off mainly is the fact that Will Smith shows near no interest in the girl he apparently loves.

Paul Blart - Mall Cop. ***1/4
There's some pretty funny jokes in here, but the romance in this movie, which they try to do well, is pretty lame.
Pretty predictable for the most part, but yeah.

Thank you all.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Pineapple Express
You probably already know the plot of this so im gonna skip that part and go right into the review. I didnt like this movie one bit. Judd Apatow has been sticking to the same damn formula and it has gotten really stale. Seth Rogen gets way too much credit for some of the movies he is in, because he is honest the most one dimension actor in hollywood. All he plays are the stoners in the movies he has major roles in (40 Year old Virgin, Knocked Up). The friendship between dale and saul is really milked for all its worth and reall loses its energy early. I know im probably gonna get shit for this reveiw but whatever, i didnt like the movie end of story.

Rating: 4/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw


A recently retired government spy, played by Liam Neeson, has to travel to France to rescue his daughter from an international chain of human traffickers, who kidnap her from the Paris airport.

Great usage of the skills and portrayal of a father's desperate search for his daughter. Some of the death scenes were a little over dramatic, but overall it was great viewing.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Grapes of wraith = i gave 10/10 on imdb but will probs drop it down to 9 after a while

Rosemary's Baby = 9/10 takes its time to get in to but very good

Guest house paradiso = 6/10 funny but not that good

Thank you for smoking = 8/10 i enjoyed it and was very funny plus its good to see aaron Eckhart in another movie as the dark knight is like the only movie i have seen him in

Paths of glory = 9/10 its harsh tbh but a good film, not one i would watch manny times though

im going to watch The Bridge on the River Kwai tonight so hopefully that will be good

I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.

Fridays Movies

Phobia - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2008 Thai horror movie that takes four short stories into a movie, directed by four different directors. This is a solid movie, just like every movie that this company produces (they also produced the Thai Shutter, which is fantastic). They are great stories, i dont really feel like taking the time to explain each one but they all focus around haunting spirits. The first one is the scariest one, but they are all pretty damn creepy (except the third one, the third one is actually just pretty funny). A very solid entry in the foreign horror section.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans - *** (7/10)
- 2009 prequel to the two former Underworld movies. This describes how the lycans and vampires became the way they were, rivaling one another in an epic feud. Its very Romeo and Juliet, but i tended to forget the love and just marvel at how awesome and epic Michael Sheen was as Lucious, the leader of the lycans, and how badass Bill Nighy was, as Victor the leader of the coven. It is a medieval action love epic, something that isnt easy to take on, but they do a good job at delivering exactly what the fans want. This is easily the best of the series, the only one i even really liked. My only big complaint about this movie are the action scenes (they tended to just show a lot of necks being slit, it was like the same shot). Still, very fun movie.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Little Nicky (8/10)
Another Sandler classic with his fun and humourous feel, my favourite part invloved the Harlem Globetrotters skit. Oh and I have to give a special mention to "Beefy" the dog.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Gran Torino

Walt Kowalski, an honored Korean War Veteran & cantankerous racist grouch, adjust to life after the passing of his wife. Having no close relationships, even to his own family, Walt forms a bond with a Hmong teen named Thoa who has to work for him after being pressured to steal Walt's prized Gran Torino. Despite his prejudices, Walt becomes a part of Thoa's family, and feels compelled to protect them when Thoa's problem with the street gang become violent.

This was a very good movie. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but this was a beautifully put together film. Clint Eastwood was awesome here. Plain and simple. Walt's relationship with Thoa is the heart and soul of the film as they slowly develop into a father/son like friendship towards the end. The writing & tone is mostly lighthearted, which makes it easy to love all the characters involved, and also feel sorry for them when the gang gets involved. I won't spoil the ending, but it was a beautiful moment and very well executed.

Overall its a very simple movie. Despite what you see in trailers & posters, Clint Eastwood never fires a gun once, so its not an action film, but sometimes just keeping it simple can work out in a big way. Its just good writing, and a great performance from Eastwood that make this a very worthwhile film.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

I'm glad to hear Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans sounds good. I was a bit skeptical about it after Underworld: Evolution disappointed me. Can't wait to see it!
