Eh Meh? Really? That movie was awesome!
Yeah I dunno. I was expecting to really enjoy it but then something about it just didn't click with me.
Did you at least enjoy that sweet curb stomp?
Yeah I thought that was the best part. And the little smirk/excited face Ed Norton gives while the police are arresting him was appropriately disturbing.
Sightseers (2012) - Bloody brilliant. It's just so weird, funny, outrageous and shocking. Go see it. 8.5/10
The Conjuring - 3 out of 5
While the film showcases more of Wan’s signature suspense and chills, the actual frights are far from innovative and nightmare-inducing; that is, of course, not counting Annabelle.
Full review here.
Oblivion - 8/10
Damn. Now that was a sweet looking film. Loved the score from M83. Cruise crushes it again. This is the type of sci-fi that enthralls me. They are a pretty rare sight.
The Wolverine: 6/10
An unnecessary but okay film.
I'll say this before you go. Don't expect anything as low-key/"cult" as SotD and Hot Fuzz. It's a lot bigger, it's a lot more commerical in a way.. the budget is a lot bigger. I thought that would make it bad.
It's all the better for it. Don't go in there with any expectations, except that you'll really fucking enjoy it.
The Wolverine - 7.5/10
Impressive story and action scenes, with a very surprising post credits scene. I felt the final battle kinda killed the grounded vibe of the movie, though.
Pacific Rim - 2.5 out of 5
Once you get over the fact that there's no original, innovative story, and director Guillermo del Toro made the worst casting call in hiring an actor with zero charisma for his lead, it's a one-time enjoyable experience to watch giant robots fight giant monsters. However, in a day and age where Christopher Nolan has forced all writers/directors to take a darker, more mature approach to film, del Toro opts to go for style rather than substance, and we end up with the shallow CGI-filled Pacific Rim.
Well Nolan caved and made a shallow film in TDKR so even he is fallible.
You must be joking? If you expected anything more than badass giant robots fighting giant monsters, it's your own fault for disliking it.
It's fucking awesome. The way it's filmed (entirely from the killer's point of view) is creepy as hell. He cuts of people's scalps.
One of my favourite movies.
It's banned in New Zealand though...
Safety Not Guaranteed - 3/5
My first rewatch. I thought I was going to like this more the second time, but I think I liked it less.
I'm serious. I expected some heart and motivation to it besides Idris Elba adopting a little Asian girl - this was just Independence Day and Transformers making a baby and it got the latter's genes in characters and story.
The Conjuring 4.5/5 - While the film doesn't venture into new territory within horror, it damn near perfects James Wan's technique within the ghost/possession/exorcism genre.
Foo Fighters: Back and Forth (2011) - A very well-done documentary capturing the past of one of the biggest rock bands in recent history. 9/10
Midnight In Paris (2011) - 3/5 - It was charming and quite decent.
Irreversible- 6/10 I guess I liked how dark it was, not a lot of subtlety to it though.
