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

Fantastic Four : Rise of the Silver Surfer

Overall Thoughts - After watching the first one the other week I couldn't resist lending this off my mate and I wasen't disappointed. I have to say I was rather sceptical when I saw the running time was 88 mins but it was 88 mins of excellent action and I couldn't take my eyes off it. I believe it slightly topped the first.

Overall Rating - 8.5/10

BTW, Does anyone know if there is plans for a third?

American History X

After watching "The Illusionist" earlier that morning, I had a sudden urge to watch Ed Norton (after all, he is an amazing actor), so I popped in American History X. I had watched it some time last August, but I decided to watch it again to really understand the elements of the story this time.
American History X is a modern masterpiece in dealing with racism. It is a wonderful story of false perception and redemption, unfortunately, the ending is very abrupt and leaves much to be desired for, but still very fitting overall.

Synopsis:
Derrick Vinyard is a guy living in Venice Beach, California at the time of racial tension. After his father (firefighter) dies in a fire, Derrick blames the death on the black community. He is recruited by Cameron, the leader of a neo-nazi group called the D.O.C. and Vineyard and Cameron team up to make Venice Beach a "safe place for white people to live". Cameron was the invisible hand, while Derrick was the charismatic leader. The D.O.C waged "war" against races that were inferior and did things such as vandalizing a store owned by Koreans and illegal immigrants etc...

Derrick was arrested eventually for voluntary manslaughter on two black guys who were attempting to steal his car. He spends three years in prison and sees that he had the wrong idea all along.

He gets out of prison and has to save his younger brother (who is now affiliated with the DOC) from going down the same path he did. Again, the ending is very abrupt and leaves much to be desired.

Overall Rating: 9/10

If you can handle the use of the "N word" and stereotypical neo-nazi views without getting offended (it's just a movie), and you are looking for a movie filled with theme, excellent acting, and ethical substance, look no further.

A Scanner Darkly (2006)




In the near future, an undercover cop, (Keanu Reeves) lives with a group of small time drug users in hopes of busting the distributors of a drug called Substance D.


Based on the Phillip K. Dick novel and his experiences with the destructive nature of drugs in the 70's. The story follows this narrative but in a very odd and surreal fashion. The first thing you notice is of course the use of the technique "rotoscoping" which is that strange looking animation you might recognize from those Charles Schwab commercials. I actually loved it and I think it added alot to the film. I'm kind of torn with this one though because I really enjoyed some parts (Robert Downey Jr and Woody Harrelson who are funny as hell in this) but overall it was slow/dragged too much, and the story got REALLY confusing at times. I think I might have liked it more had I partook in some psychedelic drugs myself beforehand. Really trippy movie.

7.5/10

I found that to be an absolutely horrible movie. 2 out of 10 from me and that's being generous.


Iron Man

Very disappointed with this movie. The acting was very good in my opinion but the rest was a total let down. And the bonus scene was not worth the wait.

6.5 out of 10

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

What Happens in Vegas- a film about two people who get married in Las Vegas after a night of drunken fun. Then they realize that they can't stand each other. Starring Ashton Kutcher (The Butterfly Effect) and Cameron Diaz (The Holiday). The film could have been so much better, because I thought it would be a lot more fun. They shot the court scenes like 3 minutes down the road from where I live, so I was psyched to see that bit. Probably not the film you want to see this weekend.

6/10

Speed Racer- a film about the legendary car racer and problems he deals with along the way. Starring Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), and Christina Ricci (Penelope). I actually had my doubts about this film, and they seemed correct. I didn't like how the film was done, it seems to comic booky and fantasy world for me. I understand that its a kids film, but I didn't like it visually. Hirsch did what he could with his role, and some of the racing bits was nice to watch. Maybe for a Speed Racer fan this film will be amazing, but for me it was a mediocre film.

6/10

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

Forgetting Sarah Marshall- a film about a man ho gets dumped, and then meets up with his ex once again while on vacation in Hawaii. Starring Jason Segel (Knocked Up), Kristen Bell (Pulse), and Mila Kunis (American Psycho II). I think this film was pretty damn awesome, a lot of funny moments. Mila Kunis is so fine in this film, but thats beside the point. If you liked Knocked Up and the 40 Year Old Virgin, watch this film.

8/10
