Young Adult - 6/10
Good acting. Very thin story.
Safe House - 8.5/10. Great movie. Denzel and Ryan Reynolds were amazing here. The story is mind-blowing. The only thing keeping this from reaching a 9 or 10 was how I didn't understand the plot until the soccer stadium scene (probably because the dialogue was muffled for me for a while). But great movie overall. And yeah, I really love "No Church in the Wild". One of The Throne's best songs. x)
Project X - 1/10. This was actually the first movie I ever walked out of. It was at the 10 minute mark when I decided to completely check out and walk myself out.
Sucker punch- 7/10: what really took this movie from a 6 to a 7 was the music. the music was really cool.
The visuals were cool, but the acting could iffy and cliché at times. Not all the time but some times. I love generally love asylum movies so i guess I'm a little biased.
Grindhouse - 6/10
Not my favorite genre. Even Tarantino's half was lacking.
Horrible Bosses - 6.5/10
Funny, but at times annoying and just lazy. It's worth it though just to see Jennifer Aniston act like that.
Training Day - 7.5/10
On time- 8/10: solid movie. Justin timberlake should stick to acting cause he's rather good.
Priest- 8/10: same as on time just an all around solid movie. Don't say this much but it felt short.
The Lion King 10/10
Best. Movie. Ever.
Tucker And Dale vs. Evil - 8.5/10
I haven't laughed out loud this much during a movie for a while. Such a weird and clever story. Damn good movie.
Iron Man - 8/10
Amazing movie with amazing special effects.
The Skin I Live In - 5/5
Seen quite a few fucked up film in my life... this one is up there! Goddamn. I really loved it though. I'd say its one of my favorites this year.
This Means War - 6/10
Predictable movie but it was still pretty funny.
The Woman In Black - 5/10
21 Jump Street - very funny movie. I liked it.
Captain America The First Avenger
Some parts felt rushed, but it was all together a good intro movie for The Avengers. Plus, I can't shake the fact that Chris Evans played Tue Human Torch, but that's my own digression. Good movie though...
Kung Fu Hustle - 9.5/10
One of the better movies I've seen. Epic fighting and a great comedy wrapped into one.
Lost In Translation - 8.5/10
The chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray is insane! Don't know what else to say really. Basic story that is carried to new heights by those two. They make you feel so much emotion and you connect so well with them.
The Raid - 8/10
Beautiful over the top violence, the fight scenes are incredible so many deaths made think "Oh FUCK!!" The score was good, it fits the scenes nicely and doesn't distract.
The Royal Tenenbaums - 8/10
Really enjoyed this one. Such unique characters and story.
There was enough raiding and redemption to satisfy everyone. Though I really wonder what's gonna happen in the sequel and who they'll tap for a soundtrack ...
I will have to finish watching that.
Not a film but I finished watching the final season of Twin Peaks. Probably the most mind-fuck TV show ever made and I loved every second of it.
21 Jumpstreet - 8.5/10
This is most definitely a must see comedy. The tropes and nostalgia make this movie work really well.
The Hunger Games - 7/10
Decent movie (haven't read the books). Nice, slick action sequences but it tries too hard, forcing you to feel sympathy for the characters. Granted, I entered 10 mins late into the theatre. So I might very well have missed important character building scenes.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - 8/10
Separate names with a comma.
