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

District 9

All's I gotta say is watch it, it's my favorite movie '09 thus far. I was shocked to hear this movie only had a budget of like 30 million dollars. Great story mixed in with great special effects, science fiction at it's prime.

It's crazy how a movie like this is made for so little and is so effective in all aspects. Then you have movies like Transformers that waste hundreds of millions of dollars and the results are pure crap. Explosions for the sake of explosions doesn't cut it when you watch films like District 9.

Kick ass.

5 out of 5

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

I Can Do Bad All By Myself- a film about a struggling woman, who has to accept her nieces and nephews in her life amidst problems. Starring Taraji P. Henson (Not Easily Broken), Adam Rodriguez, and Brian J. White (Fighting). Tyler Perry's films have been known to be hit or miss. This one had some good moments, but its really nothing different from what we normally see from Perry. Madea is good for the screen time she receives, but its still not really enough to save this film. Probably better off skipping this film, as it doesn't offer much to really like.

5/10


Sorority Row- the sisters of Theta Pi are haunted by a hooded killer, after an accidental murder of one of their sisters. Starring Briana Evigan (Step Up 2 The Streets), Leah Pipes (Fingerprints), and Rumer Willis (The House Bunny). Cookie cutter plot, with passable acting and sluts who are only good to look at and see get killed. Its not really different from many of the other horror films swimming around today. I guess it wish nice to see the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore get a significant role. Ok film, but nothing no one hasn't already seen.

6/10

Jarhead.

Cant believe i havent watched properly even though its been out for a few years. Thoroughly enjoyed it, shows both the bond you form with people in the army, and also the situations that you can get into i.e punishments and such.

7/10.

Whiteout- a film about a marshal and crew, who investigate murders in Antarctica. Starring Kate Beckinsale (Vacancy), Gabriel Macht (The Spirit), and Columbus Short (Cadillac Records). I didn't initially have high hopes for this film, as I barely knew of its existence. But I got around to seeing, and I think it was okay. Beckinsale was good with her acting and all. I guess it could have been better in the way things happened in the film, but I did maintain to stay interested in the film otherwise. Not the best of films, but you surely are better off watching this over the other crap at the box office, namely Halloween II and The Final Destination.

6/10

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

Dead Man's Shoes - Probably should've liked this film alot more than I do. The weird end bit and the closing choir-shit-song kinda ruined what was a brilliant story, and excellently directed film. Really original, really tense and gripping, Shane Meadows really knows how to make impactful and thought-proking movies. It's definatley one of those '50 films' you need to see before you die, just not as polished as I would've liked

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

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs- a film about an inventor who founds out how to make it rain food, in a town that only used to have sardine. Featuring the voices of Bill Hader (Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs), Anna Faris (Observe and Report), and Scott Caan (Get Smart). I think this film was a nice enjoyable animated adventure. It stretches the imagination, with a pretty unique concept and all in all it was a successful idea. I like how there is sort of subliminal messaging here, with how too much food can become bad for us. The film seems to have done well in the box office this week, and I think it is well deserved.

7/10

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

Jennifer's Body- a film about a high school cheerleader who becomes demonically possessed, and has the need to feed on boys. Starring Megan Fox (Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!), and Johnny Simmons (Hotel For Dogs). Megan Fox may be extremely hot, but she's a real horrible actress. Diablo Cody really wrote a very weak film here. Not as good as it should or could have been. But then again if you expected anything, apart from sexual appeal in the form of Megan Fox than you have been fooled. Bad film, but it was expected.

5/10

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

Surrogates

Going into seeing this I was not particularly expecting much from it, at most maybe a nifty story followed by a big twist that changes everything you think about for 30minutes after you leave the cinema, maybe it was the Bruce Willis thing, not sure. At worst it could have been a overly complex plot with either too little substance, terrible build or any fitting climax, or even all of them as I’ve seen. As you could have guessed I was surprised with what I saw, it was by no means brilliant but does not in any way suck ass like it easily could have.

Sure as far as critisms and plot holes go it has its share from its genre, but its redeeming build of conspiracy laced plot, intense but not overused action scenes and a moral purpose that hit home with an internet and gaming addict such as myself definitely made up for its misgivings.

The plot itself is a neat and nice set up, with most of the situation is explained at the very beginning, it left almost no holes to be filled in during the later stages of the film which gave way for a clear and visible look at the story and its slow at times, fast at times, unfolding. Each of the major action scenes were all useful to the plot and were exactly what action scenes need to be, engaging and to the point, even the plot itself adds to them in vulnerability to the protagonist and thus the audience.

The jewel in this silver crown is its moral questions that for once in a action packed movie seem to make sense to me, not simply a new concept added to the Battle Royale formula that don’t make sense together (Gamer comes to mind). These questions being the old but good ‘How far is too far with technology?’, ‘what makes a human, human?’ and ‘What’s the point of existing if you’re not actually living? I could be looking into it a bit too much, but I like to think I’m not and I would like to think these appeal to people as much as they do to me.

A few nice touches are also enjoyable, being most of the extras are robots, it covers up what would have certainly been average acting, the length of the film is a nice ‘Not too long, not too short’ length and there being no groundbreaking twist in the final moments when I was expecting one definitely gave me a more real sense of what I just saw.

Overall its not an almost perfect piece of fused action and plot, such as ‘The Dark Knight’ (which seems to be my bench mark these days for action films) but it’s still a nice mix and should you be near a cinema with your friends, you will most likely enjoy it.

4/5

Did one up for RT, so I figured I would post it here.


Rest in Peace Legend

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

The Time Traveller's Wife

I saw this with my mum on Tuesday night, expecting a nice, soppy, easy to follow romance movie. I believe the film is based on a book, which admittedly - I've never read, so I can't compare the film to that or anything. My opinion is solely based on the movie as a movie.

It was WAY to hard to keep up with. Henry (Eric Bana, who I love) travels through time constantly throughout the film, and there is no sign of dates or years written at the bottom of the screen to indicate what time period he is in throughout. This was off-putting and just boggled your mind.

The only thing that was distinctly different throughout his time travels is that his wife Claire (Rachel McAdams, who I also love) has a differnet hairstyle each time. Nothing stood out to look particularly out-dated or old fashioned (clothes, etc) in the film, even though Henry is going back in time throughout.

Anyway, the acting was good... but the film had me thinking "okay, so what year is he in NOW?" rather than paying attention to the whole point of the film, which I guess was just a story of love and family.

5/10

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

Surrogates- a film about a world where people operate, through robotic surrogates and the problems that ensue after murders occur. Starring Bruce Willis (Live Free or Die Hard), Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill), and Rosamund Pike (Fracture). Ever since I saw the trailer for this film, I was pretty interested in checking it out. I liked the entire concept for the film, and ended up enjoying it. These kind of utopian yet flawed future films are right down my alleyway, and this was a great addition. So far this is my favorite film of the month, but I have yet to see The Informant. Good film that does its job, in delivering for a fun time.

7/10


Pandorum
- a film about two men who awaken from a deep sleep in space, with attacks from infected humans and a ravaging disorder known as Pandorum. Starring Dennis Quaid (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra), Ben Foster (30 Days of Night), and Cam Gigandet (The Unborn). I liked the concept for the film, and enjoy sci-fi horror films. Good stuff all around, the enemies were like more extreme versions of Orcs. Overall, a great film, with an interesting plot, and even a nice twist at the end.

7/10
