    Well I watched the film more than a year ago, and never felt the need to watch it again so I might have forgot some details, but here's just a couple I remember:

    1. the asian guy buys an airline. really? and then in the plane, that rich kid doesn't recognize the asian guy who is the biggest business rival of his father. really?

    2. limbo. nothing about it makes any sense whatsoever. they made up all the rules as they went along, now you have to die, now you don't, now you can wake up from the limbo, now you can't.

    Your Highness - 6

    Because Natalie Portman is effing hot. Including James Franco and Zoey Deschanel.. the movie was pretty funny too. Had it's moments.

    You're confusing plot holes with what you feel are shortcomings. (So what if Fisher saw Saito on the same plane? Two rich guys can't share a plane?) None of what you listed is indictive of a plot hole by definition. In fact, Inception dodges plot holes for the very reasons you specified in point #2: Nolan made it up as he went along. And what if he did? It's a heist movie. These genres are known for large amounts of exposition. It's no different here.

    In any case, I hardly see how anything listed here would make it more confusing.

    The only reason it doesn't make sense is because the characters themselves don't know anything about limbo. The only information any of the heist members have of limbo is what Cobb has told them, as he's the only one to have gone in deep enough. And even his knowledge is suspect, since he's only been there once and had to kill himself to get out.

    Sucker Punch - 1/5 Zach Snyder and his soft core porn. I thought 300 was the last one. I guess the teenage boy in him needed to come out.

    Hanna - 4/5 for killing off a male character i loved. He was too cool to have died dammit.

    Rango - 5/5 I usually don't care for westerns but this movie made me look beyond it and develop an interest in the genre. Not for little kids but the snake villain and Rango alone make it worth it. The visuals surpass Pixar in my opinion.

    Just Go With It - 3/5 for the entertainment. I like a bad movie that while i know its bad, it at least entertained me . Not many bad movies can do that. And Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler have mad chemistry.

    Scream 4 - 4/5 for the sheer entertainment value. Never seen a Scream movie before so i don't know how it compares to its predecessors but i had a good time laughing.

    Insidious - 4/5 The first act was really great. The 2nd falters but it was still good because i enjoyed each of the characters and it had a good concept and writing.

    Hop - 0/5 for one of the most annoying animated characters. And for its boring plot, characters, concept, writing, directing and general humorless tone.


    Edit: sorry for the spoiler. Corrected it. :sweating:

    ^Spoilers, dude. Come on. Hanna just came out.


    Kill Bill Vol. 2 - 10/10

    I don't give very many 10's, but Kill Bill is just brilliant. I think it might be better than Pulp Fiction even. Tarantino has such amazing style and imagination. Plus he always picks the best fucking actors for his characters. I know this should be common knowledge, I just like tooting his horn.

    Just Go With It 3/5. Not exactly my type of movie.

    Fast Five 100000000/5. Holy shit this is epic, tops all the previous ones IMO. Just see.

    I enjoy Vol. 2 a lot more than Vol. 1. For second half of a single movie it does a great job at being its own film and you don't have to see the previous entry to understand it. The style is just gorgeous. Every frame in the film is crammed with enough exciting imagery to study for years.

    I can't wait until "The Whole Bloody Affair" is released. I've heard the differences make it feel like a whole different experience.

    I always treated Kill Bill as one long movie. I probably first saw them in 2006 and watched them back to back. Watching 1 and having to wait 6 months for volume 2 would really suck if you caught them in theaters. They need each other to make everything work, or else 1 is mostly just action and 2 is mostly substance. Together they are amazing.

    And I hadn't heard of "The Whole Bloody Affair" until now. Pumped for that.

    I think the last film I watched in full was Galaxy Quest a few weeks ago, and it wasn't the first time I've seen it. It's probably one of the best comedy films ever though, that I've seen anyway.

    Rio - 9/10

    I loved it. It's really funny, great characters and good music. It makes me want to go to Brazil.

    That movie is so good. I was expecting it to just be a simple lol movie, but the writing was brilliant.
