I Am A Sex Addict (2005)
Just finished watching Taken. Liam Neeson is such a badass in that movie.
Black Swan (9/10)
Outstanding movie. Flawless performance by Natalie Portman.
Black Swan - 9.9/10.
Unfucking believable. Natalie Portman kicked ASS. She filled her role PERFECTLY. Mila Kunis was just as amazing. Not a perfect 10/10 due to being confused too much, as opposed to Inception confused which was fun. Mila Kunis-Natalie Portman sex scene, however, was a 10/10.
The parts where it tries to be serious are a drag but if you want some fun, ott action it's worth watching for the parts where you get that. 5/10 for the drama, 8/10 for the action so 7/10 on the balance of things.
Unstoppable - 6.5/10.
I had a nice satisfied, happy feeling at the end, but there were way too many complications with stopping this unmanned train that just didn't seem plausible. One or two, yes, but nearly five screw-ups got annoying. An even lower rating because I watched it not that long after the amazing Black Swan, and it just couldn't compare.
Anyone have seen TRON:LEGACY?
Skyline - 4/10.
Terrible. They tried to make a modern heavy CGI about an alien invasion but it's more like Independence Day meets Transformers meets E.T. on a script written on used toilet paper. CGI is actually pretty solid, but the idea of an alien invasion is way out of date.
The Town - 8/10.
Another solid movie by Ben Affleck. From what I understood, he also wrote the story, which is, by the way, brilliant. He's an awesome director and actor alike.
I'll give Skyline a 0/5... I couldn't even make half way through that piece of shit, even that with numerous pauses to browse the net. Horrible movie.
Black Swan - 5/5
Fucking loved it minus the ending. I think the back and forth hallucination/reality trip really threw me off.. so when the end finally came I was left a little confused. But I looked up some explanations on the net and realized it was pretty simple. If there's a strike against this film then this would be the only one from me. I absolutely loved everything else. Natalie Portman deserves an Oscar for her performance imo... the way she tackled both sides of her character was insane. I won't even get into the direction. It was top notch shit all around.
Just watched this and I give it a 11/10! I pretty much agree with everything you said except for the part about it being that confusing.
Both were on tv last night
i bet you all know home alone, such a popular movie and gets back on tv durin christmas every year here
i have seen it too many times but it actually keeps be kinda funny to me
the prince and me is something different
but as well it was lovely to see the whole film now instead of just a few parts as i saw it years ago on tv too
i really enjoyed it, very cute story behind the film
True Grit. Great dialogue compared to the horrid movies coming out these days, but below average for the Coen Bros. Very dialogue driven movie, great acting, not much action. 7/10. It's no Fargo or The Big Lebowski.
TRON LEGACY BABYYYYYY
How To Train Your Dragon
It was pretty enjoyable. Not something I would watch over and over again, but I had a few good laughs, and the visuals were pretty kick-ass.
Tomorrow, When The War Began - 9.9/10
This is the second movie I come across before ever hearing about it (the first being Monsters) so I decided to take a look. I started it around 3:30 AM, not being able to sleep, and even though I felt like I could pass out if I relaxed for a second, I didn't take my eyes off my computer screen. The premise seems unlikely, yet at the same time, it's highly convincing. A group of teenagers rebelling against an invading army to defend their country with a random, yet clicking, variety of personalities? Always awesome if you can pull it off. On top of all that, I got a good, happy feeling at the end. Badass. Caitlin Stasey is a total cutie, too.
ANG TANGING INA MO, LAST NA 'TO: 9/10
KNIGHT AND DAY: 8/10
The Prestige - 9.6/10
THE EXPENDABLES: 7/10
MY AMNESIA GIRL: 6/10
SHAKE, RATTLE, ROLL 12: 6/10
Enter the Void (2009) - 4/5
A very strange film. Different, in a good way. A visual roller-coaster ride.
Alice in Wonderland (2010) - 2/5
Laughably bad but Mia Wasikowska was so adorable in her little dress!
Inception - 9/10
Some parts dragged on, which kept it from being a 'perfect' film...but for the most part this movie was stunningly good. Great special effects, and a deep storyline. Highly recommended.
Salt - 8/10
Don't let the generic trailers fool you...this movie was a pleasant surprise. The blu-ray has 2 different endings, and each one is interesting. Definitely did not expect the movie to play out the way it did. Good movie.
