Real Steel /10



Yes, you read that right...a half star rating out of a possible ten. This is one of the most pathetic insults to the intelligence of the filmgoing public in the new millenium. Hollywood is really stretching itself thin at this point and they think people are just going to automatically buy into the crap they're shoveling. Here's their mentality, note-for-note:

Let's take an old half hour episode of the original "The Twilight Zone" series from back in 1963 and turn it into a movie with a whole bunch of forced sentiment and cheap, done-to-death dialogue. What do you mean there's not enough material there to fill a two hour feature? Okay, let's steal material from the original "Rocky" film as liberally as we can. How liberally? Let's put a little white underdog robot against a big black champion robot. Let's have Danny Elfman absolutely rip off Bill Conti's music as close as he can without being sued for plagiarism. Not enough? Oh, oh, oh! I got it! Let's have the little boy and his father fight their way through the crowd after the final round decision victory, reach each other and say "I love you" to each other. No wait! Too obvious. We'll just change the "I love you" to some backwater greeting card sentiment. No one will know the difference, right? I mean, the average Hollywood filmgoer has an I.Q. of...what? Three? Oh yeah, we're safe.

Please. Everyone involved in the making of this film should be ashamed of themselves.

Tuker and Dale vs Evil

ok the name of it sounds pretty bad but its actually a really funny movie. Its kinda like scary movie but not as stupid. Its about these two red necks who you think is going around killing college kids that are camping, but they're not. They're accidently killing themselves and the ones that are still alive think its the rednecks doing the killing.

Its hard to explain but if you have netflix and can watch movies instantly its worth a watch and I'm very picky when it comes to movies

Chronicle

Andrew, a teen who is socially withdrawn, often bullied, abused by his father, and who's only window to the world is a camera, is dragged to a strange crash site by class president hopeful Steve. Together with Andrew's cousin, Matt, the three crawl into the site, and discover a glowing rock that not only shorts Andrew's camera, but nearly kills them as well.

With a new camera, Andrew records the aftermath encounter with the rock. The three have gained telekinesis, and in short time have learned to use them freely, though over using it comes with nose bleeds. At first, the powers are purely fun, and curiosity. However, the sudden ability to use their minds turns sour hard and fast, as the reclusive Andrew not only has issues dealing with his new powers, but his new powers while dealing with his bitter life.

Chronicle's plot went pretty much how I expected it to. That is not to say that's a bad, quite the opposite, since it didn't take any plot turns into "why, just why?" dead ends. I found it pleasantly surprising that the main characters were fleshed out rather nicely, while not taking a huge amount of time from the main plot. The beginning psychic pranks the teens pull are fun to watch, and Andrew's emotional decent and family troubles definitely help build up to the final confrontation. I only have two big complaints with Chronicle, the first being it felt short, at times it felt "I wish I saw more of this part" I definitely would have liked to see more pranks. The second being (and most anime fans will call this one the second the final showdown begins, if not much sooner) Andrew feels allot like Tetsuo from Akira... ALOT like Tetsuo. Not a particularly bad thing, but anime fans will probably have to take a moment to wrench "Akira, Akira, It's FRICKIN' AKIRA!!!" from their minds before returning to the movie.

For a person who rarely goes out to watch movies (me) it was definitely worth the watch. Probably the best "found footage" movie I've seen.

8.5/10

Rented Moneyball a couple weeks ago. Really great movie I think anyone can enjoy. Whether you're a baseball fan or not doesn't change anything. Great performances literally from everyone; Pitt, Hill, Hoffman, etc. Seeing the evolution of Pitt's character and how he acts towards the players is great. Perfect casting all around. Well deserving of all the nonimations it's getting. 8/10

Went and saw The Descendants in theaters last week. Really odd, yet very good movie. A lot of the scenes and the comedy throughout really reminded me of Burn After Reading, but that may just be because Clooney was in it. The movie tries to bring out every emotion possible in you, and for some it might work tremendously. A lot of dark humor and some terrible words that children shouldn't be saying or hearing, but a pretty funny movie throughout. You also get some beautiful scenery throughout Hawaii. Another Oscar worthy performance from George. 8/10

Watched Take Me Home Tonight the other day on Netflix. Had pretty low expectations, but the movie actually had me laughing a few times. The 80s theme was cool and the movie is pretty cliche but that's not always a bad thing, although it was pretty unrealistic. Watch it one night for a few laughs with friends. Get to see some nice tits too. 7/10

Helpful review. I pretty much like to go to the theater just for the fun of it, even if the movie is bad. But I had my doubts about Chronicle, because it sounded so terribly run-of-the-mill, despite some positive reception.

I would consider any anime/manga/japanese influence or tribute to be a positive, so it certainly seems worth a watch.

Seul contre tous (I Stand Alone)by Gaspar Noe.

I've actually seen this film a couple years ago, but decided to rewatch it last night. Hands down, the most depressing movie you will ever watch. An absolute masterpiece. It will turn the most peppiest cheerleader to a suicidal slut. Film starts with the main character explaining his life story. Abandoned by his mother and father killed by Nazis in world war 2. Molested by a priest in his orphanage, escapes the orphanage to learn to become a butcher. After years of struggle and saving every penny, he finally opens up his own butcher shop, specializing in horse meat. He forms a relationship with a nearby factory worker, whom becomes pregnant with his child. The mother abandons him and his daughter, due to disappointment of not being a boy, he is left alone to raise a mute daughter. As she matures, her body transforms and the main character has to resist his incest temptations. She has her first period, not having any knowledge of what is happening to her, she heads out to look for her father. A muslim worker is attempting to seduce her and a neighbor and friend of her father catches them. Rape thoughts immediately rush through his head. and goes out to hunt the pervert. He mistakenly attacks an innocent worker and is sent to prison and his daughter taken away from him. Years later he is released and works for a bar owner, who forms a relationship with. She becomes pregnant and decides to sell the bar and move out to northern France with her mother so that she may help with the upcoming child. The main character is miserable and depressed, having to live with his cunt girlfriend and her mother. He goes out to find a job at a deli, where is rejected. He finds another job working at a retirement home. A tenant dies, and comforts a nurse who was there for the ordeal. A friend of his girlfriends sees him walking her home and comforting her. Not knowing the entire situation, the pregnant pig assumes that he has been cheating on her. The two get into an argument that ends up with him beating his girlfriend and killing the unborn baby in the process. He runs away back to Paris to be with his daughter & friends. All his friends have aged and completely are now completely broke. His daughter has matured into a young woman, where he cannot resist temptation anymore, and takes her to the very same hotel where she was conceived. I will not spoil the ending, but it is a must watch. I recommend watching "Carne" before this. It is the prologue to this film.

10/10. Vive le France.

DOLPHIN TALE

The movie is inspired by a true story in which a young boy discovers a dolphin washed up on shore trapped in a crab trap which severely injures its tail causing it to be removed by a local Marine Centre/Hospital. First off this movie looks great. The movie opens with a school of dolphin swimming in the sea and it just looks beautiful. We learn that the boy (Sawyer) is somewhat of an introvert as he spends his time indoors all summer fixing and flying his model helicopter. His cousin (Kyle) a professional swimmer decides to join the army in order to be sponsored for training for the Olympics. The two seem to have a great relationship as Kyle leaves a parting gift with Sawyer before leaving. One day while riding his bike to summer school, Sawyer finds the body of the Dolphin (Winter). When taken to the Marine Centre we learn that Winter's Tale was so badly infected that it had to be removed. With the help of prosthetictian (Morgan Freeman- can't remember what his name was in the movie) Winter just might have a chance of surviving as they try to make a tail for her. Sawyer becomes best of friends with the owner of the Marine Centre's daughter and is a frequent visitor to check up on Winter's condition. There are several challeneges along the way. The Marine Centre is in debt but the owner is reluctant to sell it as he fears that Winter would be killed since he won't be deemed an attraction, Sawyer's mom is split between sending him to summer school and allowing him to visit the centre everyday as him and Winter are bonded and Kyle's dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer is in jeopardy.

The movie isn't anything spectacular to be honest. Dolphin Tale is way too cliched and is predictable and the overall sense of feel goodness doesn't really make it the drama it sets out to be, The overburden theme of family relationships is well, overbearing. But this movie is something I recommend everyone to watch. Despite it's faults, Dolphin's Tale is a heart warming story. It's a movie that will definitely win over the kids and the older audience will simply appreciate it's feel good story.

6.5/10

I enjoyed the hell out of this movie. Great visuals. The action is a lot of fun. The characters are cheesy but they serve their purpose and move the story along to get to the next robo-fight. I would give it a solid 7.5/10.

The Woman in Black. 8/10.

Went to the cinema with my mates to see it after hearing good reviews, so we thought we'd give it a shot. Ended up being great.
Not particularly scary, just very, very jumpy. Visually it was a treat, one of the best looking movies I have seen in years. Daniel Radcliffe did an okay job in the lead role, but wasn't that convincing. Also I don't think he will ever be known as Daniel Radcliffe, he will always be known as the guy who played Harry Potter.

Inside Man, 9/10

Really artistic, smart, funny and at times brutal. Clive Owen was fantastic and likeable as the robber. Denzel was good, as he always is. Really recommend this to any suspense/thriller lovers.
