Righty, I think I should give movie reviewing a go.

50/50
50/50 follows the journey of Adam, a young man who is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He is given a 50/50 chance of survival, hence the title.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the role of the protagonist, Adam. Gordon-Levitt does a great job showing how vulnerable he is and you really feel sympathy for him. From the moment he's diagnosed with his illness to very end of the movie, you'll love Adam.

He is joined in his journey by his best friend, Kyle, play by Seth Rogen. This is not your stereotypical Seth Rogen flick though. Sure, he plays the comic relief stoner character that he is known for, but he does serve an actual purpose in the film and isn't just there for the laughs. He plays the best buddy character very well, even if his humor is a tad silly for a movie of this nature.

The movie is quite hard to stomach, especially during it's final moments. 50/50 will bring out many emotions in you. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, but one thing's for sure, you will enjoy the ride.
8/10


My 3rd film of the year behind Harry Potter and Limitless.

Agreed, she looked really great back in '96 or whatever year it was. She just looks funny now.

The Quiet Earth

Decided to give this a watch after reading about it in a 101 sci-fi movies to see before you die book and was glad that I gave it a chance. Plot basically concerns a man waking up to discover that he is the last person on earth but rather than a Michael Bay approach to its subject, it actually explores the psychology of the situation in quite a fascinating manner. I thought the last third was a bit too melodramatic but the last shot is one of the most beautiful and ambiguous cinematic images I've ever seen. Highly reccomended to all.

8 or 9/10 (dependent on second viewing)

Quite fun I suppose, nothing more than a popcorn flick. Highly unrealistic, but I will let it of as most (if not all) disaster movies are like that. I like Bill Paxton as an actor, shame he can't act to save hus life. Screenplay is terriblle. The effects and the fact it's very fun and watchable (not sure it's meant to take itself seriously) make it an okay movie for me, to watch when bored. And is also has a nice soundtrack.

6.5/10

I think I caught that on tv years ago lol, can't really remember any of it. Paxton is a really good actor though.


Burn after Reading



Light hearted but hilarious stuff from the Coen Bros. The plot interlinking was well drawn out and everyone was perfectly cast in their roles. Frances McDormand's whacky laugh is worth watching for alone.

8/10

Moneyball - 7/10

While not as amazing as The Social Network, Aaron Sorkin clearly has a knack for taking 'unfilmable' book's scripts and injecting enough humour to keep the average moviegoer interested.

Plenty of funny scenes for non-baseball savvy audience members to enjoy. To gauge this I went with a non-baseball savvy friend and while I enjoyed mostly the baseball aspects, he enjoyed the film overall too.

Anyway, the film was a solid 'good'. Every actor was bringing their A game - Brad Pitt at his sharpest since Burn After Reading, Jonah Hill doing his 'sidekick' role but a lot more seriously than Get Him To The Greek/Forgetting Sarah Marshall/Funny People/etc. Everyone felt believable. The emotional scenes were not too soppy, etc.

Only thing keeping it 'good' and not 'great' is, well, without any baseball knowledge a lot of the film gets lost in translation, and some of the pacing is incredibly slow (like baseball) but ultimately rewarding (like baseball).

Worth seeing for fans of films, subtle comedy and baseball/sports management. Not worth seeing if you're a 'popcorn' movie fan.

Sorkin has a good track record of making me enjoy films which I didn't expect to have any interest in. I wonder how much money an oscar winning screenwriter can demand? Probably not enough considering their importance.

Tekken: Blood Vengeance

Really only the fight scenes matter in this movie, and for the most part they delivered. The problem I had with the movie, besides watching the horrible dubbed version, is that too much time was spent on two characters that were frankly just annoying.

6/10

The problem I had with the movie, besides watching the horrible dubbed version, is that too much time was spent on Xiaoyu and her robot friend. They were frankly just annoying, and i was hoping Jin would go devil on their asses, but that never happened (though he does go devil during the final fight)

6/10
Are you allowed to just.. Spoil a movie in this thread?

Titanic.

The boat sank, Kate Winslet got her tits out.
