The Terminator [re-watch] - **** (9/10)
- 1984 action classic starring Arnold Da Govna, Linda Hamilton, Michael Biehn, and directed by James Cameron. It centers around Sarah Connor, as a man comes from the future to rescue her from a Terminator sent to kill her, because her son is going to be the man who fights to save us from the hostile takeover from robots. This is an awesome action flick, another example of Cameron being king of directing the action flick (Aliens and T2 are just two more great examples). It is just constant pursuing, as it builds each and every time the Terminator gets close to killing off his target. And despite only saying a few words, Arnie gives one badass performance.
Truck - *** (7/10)
- 2008 Korean (i think) thriller. A man needs money to pay for his daughter's surgery, and ends up getting caught in some deep crime scandal, and is told the only way to the money he needs (by the next day) is to drive twelve bodies out of the area and have them tossed away somewhere. This is a solid watch, with some pretty compelling stuff, and also a very sympathetic main character, as you really see him struggle to do what he needs to do because of his moral state. The story is kind of jaded, and it gets into that territory of being a little overwrought, but overall good watch.
The Good, the Bad, and the Weird - **** (9/10)
- 2008 Korean Western. This movie is GREAT, and makes it onto my list of 2008 top movies at #11, just missing the top ten by a hair. This is seriously a freaking FUN movie. in a homage to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, we have three main characters (a good one, a bad one, and a weird one), all ending up with their lives intertwined due to the search and capture of a treasure map. The characters are extremely well done, and it has some really sweeping action scenes, like a HUGE chase scene on horses with about five different groups, everyone gunning for the other. Its that great kind of Western that just never stops chugging, and the best part is by the end, you and your friends will probably all be rooting for a different guy, because they each have their own extremely cool quirks. It is a very fun, intense adventure into the realm of foreign westerns.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
