Rise Of The Planet of the Apes: 8.5/10

First time I ever watched a whole "Planet of the Apes" movie. It was surprisingly good, and kept me the edge. The cure for Alzheimer's was tested in Apes because it was too risky for humans. It worked too well. The animals got smarter and an unfortunate mishap caused the project to be terminated. Every Ape was destroyed, except one. Little Cesar, who was taken in by the head scientist of the operation to live with him and his father. The trials of raising an ape never was thought of, until they realized that Cesar had the trait of the other smart Apes. The scientist, down on luck, used the same treatment on his father, not sure of the effects on humans. It was great, for awhile, but ultimately, it lead to his undoing.

Batman Begins / The Dark Knight

Watched together, it seems like they are the same movie and TDK is the climax of Batman Begins' building for 2 hours. We all know about the Jokers performance, but it is still mesmerising on the big screen. WHY SO SERIOUS!

The effort I put into this sentence is equal to the effort put into this film.

You could've put in a whole lot of effort to construct that sentence, for all we know.

Kickboxer 5

Martial arts films rarely have well executed plots but this was bottom of the barrel. Basically, psychopath opens up a new organization, recruits people, has those who decline killed, one of them being Dacasos' friend. However, lack of character development and uncomfortable dialogue bring this way down. However, the henchman in this film are funny. I can't decide if this is intentional or not.

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

Not the David Cronenberg film but the 2005 film of the same name. It's a really interesting exploration into the causes and consequences of racism over the course of a couple of days in Los Angeles, covering a whole spectrum of characters from different ethnic and economical backgrounds (wealthy black film TV producer, angry white cop, Persian locksmith). Rather than just a "racism is bad" angle, it delivers a lesson in where racism stems from and what its effects can be. None of the characters are innocent - they all have prejudices of their own - and they are all victims of some kind of racism at some point in the film (ranging from insults and arguments to killings, robberies and violent stand offs). There are some great performances in this film (Matt Dillon particularly impressed me) and some genuinely moving film-making at work. Can't rate this film highly enough.

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

Crash seriously just pissed me off for the majority of it's run time.

12 Angry Men
his film has the simplest story you could ever think of, 12 jurors have to decide whether or not a young defendant is guilty of a murder, sounds simple, boring (maybe) and like something you could fit in to a 5 minute scene in a film? But with a stunning script and screenplay, a brilliant director and 12 brilliant actors, this simple story turns in to a powerful masterclass of acting, script writing and dialogue. I adored this film from start to finish, the dialogue is so well written, as are the characters even though they are mostly nameless and complete strangers stuck in a room with each other. The acting is some of the best I've seen, especially from Fonda and maybe even more so from Lee J Cobb. I loved the tension built up between the 12 men and you could imagine being in that room with them, feeling the heat and listening to every single word, slowly changing your mind. I felt myself turn more and more which was so awesome to experience, but the amazing thing about this film is that you are allowed to decide for yourself what the verdict is, and it was perfect to end it without knowing. So many great messages within the story too, just a great portrayal of human nature and how peoples prejudices get in the way of rational thought. Proof you don't need action sequences, explosions or anything of the sort to be totally exhilarated and gripped by whats happening on the screen, all you need is a great script with great actors and director and you have pure gold. A masterpiece, and imo one of the greatest of all time.

9.5 - 10/10

Expendables 2

The Expendables find themselves on a revenge mission when one of their own is killed by the leader of an organization seeking to obtain a large supply of plutonium.

Lots of fun. Seeing all of these guys (Stallone, Schwartzenegger, Willis, Norris, Statham, Lundgren, Van Damme, etc) all share screen time together is just a pure delight. It is a wildly stupid movie, the movie is self aware of that. If you know who these guys are and are a fan of their work, then this film is like a present. Its fun. Its loud. Its wild. It is a delight. One thing I do have to say is that I actually really liked Jean Claude Van Damme as the villain. That just seemed like the perfect thing to do for a movie as cartoony as this and that last fight with Stallone was pretty sweet. Lundgren was really funny and weird too, and I have to say the same thing I said about the first film, Stallone & Statham have a natural on screen chemistry. True they are both one note action movie stars, but something about seeing them together & interacting with each other just works. My only major knock is that I would have liked to have seen more of Jet Li (he leaves after the first major action scene). Oh well.

The Dictator

A great comedy with another great Sacha Baron Cohen's character. It makes fun of middle east in a great way, that Chinese guy was amazing and Osama appears!


I accept rep.

Headbanging is crucial.

Although the movie was disturbing, the way it was filmed made it awesome. Brian de Palma does it again.
