I'm gonna watch Cars tonight, yay!
Religulous - 2/10
It was completely biased and ignorant. I should have known what it would be but I was hoping itd be a fair documentary that simply poked fun at all the religions, not completely shot them down and brutally criticized them. I was hoping to learn something from it and that it could in some way strengthen my faith but it was just "ridiculous"
Pride and Glory - 9/10. Great film, the acting was spot-on and I thought everyone's parts were portrayed really well. Good storyline as well.
Waiting - 8/10. Still hilarious after all this time
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: 8/10
My Wife is a Gangster 3: 7/10
Wolf Creek: 6/10
Black Christmas: 5/10
Dead Mary: 4/10
Frost/Nixon - amazing film. In hindsight Frank Langella was a cut above Sean Penn and Mickey Rourke in their films.
The One. Awesome.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)
Pretentious, uninspired, and poor execution upon all aspects of the film. The special effects will have you contorting your face in pure digust. It's 2009. Get with it Andrzej Bartkowiak. Chris Klein was hands down fucking terrible; Not as Nash, but as a professional actor. Nobody emulated their video game counterparts. But..for what it's worth, Kristin Kreuk seemed to have put a lot of effort into making her role as memorable or impactful as possible. Furthermore, Robin Shou a.k.a Liu Kang is always fun to see back on-screen.
Best part of the film? The mention of Ryu at the very end of the film.
I saw Juno finally a few weeks ago. I absolutely love Ellen Page, she's probably my favorite younger actress right now. I thought she did a great job in the role she was playing, it felt sincere and not forced at all.
The Simpsons Movie
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li 8/10
Chris Klein was laughable, but the movie was great.
Wait, you went to see an atheist documentary with the hope it would strengthen your faith?
Watchmen - 8/10
Street Figher: The Legend of Chun-Li: 6/10. The fight scenes were the definite high point of the movie. Chris Klein has to be the worst actor I have ever seen. He was completely useless. Kristin Kreuk did a pretty good job as Chun-Li but the overall film just wasn't that great. Good if you aren't expecting anything though.
I didn't read the graphic novel (perhaps maybe that would've helped?). I did have knowledge of the characters and the whole story though. I loved the graphics and the action/fighting scenes (holy shit!) but I left the theater kinda hoping for so much more. The ending wasn't all that great to me. *shrugs*
Watchmen - 9/10
So fucking faithful to the book, it's head-spinning. A few minor things changed through-out the movie, which I won't talk about right now, but the ending left a bad taste in my mouth at first. But, I've warmed up to it since I left the theater. It makes sense, alot more sense than a giant fucking squid, to me atleast.
I liked it more than the Dark Knight, honestly.
P.S. - Lay witness to the glory of Lower Manhattan!
Enjoyed it a lot, Zach Snyder did a great job and created a pretty amazing experience faithful to the book. I found myself wondering what people who hadn't read it would think, though. I think it works a lot better if you've read it, and it also helps this ending make more sense.
I had a couple friends who didn't read it first and were trying to put it in this superhero story context where it's heroes vs. villains, but that's really not what it's about at all. It's pretty amazing how some things translated to the screen and made the symbolism really stand out. Some of the characters were totally spot on, too, like Dan and Rorschach.
I'm going to try and see it again in IMAX.
"Watchmen", baby; it was amazing.
My Best Friend's Girl - 8/10
Pretty funny movie, but in the end it just turned out like all of the other usual raunchy rom-com's out there. But, nothing wrong with asshole characters.
There's a movie called "LOL"? That's awesome.
There's one called 'I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney'.
Ben Affleck made it.
