    It was pretty well shot. It might have been the actors that made me say that; you can tell it wasn't big budget just from that but I am stupid for saying it wasn't professional. It had some really unique and awesome scenes and was a very good movie.

    -

    "Gangster Squad" - I really liked this movie. It wasn't too over the top and did a good job keeping it real. Action was pretty good too. The actors were all incredible. 4/5

    The Wolverine - 6.5/10

    One of the better X-Men films. Definitely does the character far more justice than the piece of garbage that is 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.

    Pacific Rim - 7/10

    Giant robots vs. giant monsters. Guillermo Del Toro I love you. The red shoes scene is now forever ingrained into my memory; beautifully shot and directed.

    The acting was bad, I agree. They had problems in the family though, it wasn't that nice.

    The second film isn't better, the first one is the best of the series. Anyone who has seen all of Saw films will tell you that. Maybe you'll eventually grow to like the first film when you see how better it is in comparison. I posted it before, here's my opinion: Saw > Saw III > Saw VI = Saw II > Saw: The Final Chapter > Saw IV = Saw V.

    I think the whole first film is worth watching just because of the ending. Don't expect a lot from the series as a whole, though, if you're going to watch it all.

    I'm watching the series because I wanna watch the 7th one because of Chester and I don't believe in watching films out of order.
    I watched the second one last night.
    5/10
    Same complaints, I guess. But I can't really complain, it's like porn but instead of sex, gore. The gore isn't that great, though.
    The characters are total idiots that could've survived if they weren't so fucking stupid. That girl had played a game before, so they all knew there were traps. The film is almost so bad it's almost funny.
    Saw II gets an extra point because I liked the music they played during the credits, though.
    After the cops found Jigsaw, it'll take something ridiculous to make another sequel.
    At least the films aren't as bad as Friday the 13th. And I sat through all the Friday the 13th films...

    "The Raid: Redemption" - Finally got around to watching this movie. It was pretty much what I expected out of it: almost no back story for any of the characters or any real reason to care for them. The fighting was pretty good, but it wasn't anything mind blowing or worthy of making me re-watch it. Overall, I wanted to see the movie for Mike's score and that's what I got out of it. 2/5

    Hah, because of Chester? It's not like he's the lead actor, he just has one sequence of the film. You could actually just watch his scene on YouTube and nothing would be spoiled.

    That's the point - they'd know that there were traps anyway, because they were meant to face them.

    Invisitags: But they haven't found him. He is now in the car outside the house, and no one knows where he is.

    Wonder what your reaction will be after III. :p

    Despicable Me - Rewatched it for the first time since it came out. I remember it as much funnier. But it's different than other movies. Still like it. 7/10

    The Smurfs 2 - Meh. Made me laugh a couple times. 6/10

    But when Remember The Name came on... :lol: ''10 percent luck, 20 percent skill...'' and my friend is looking at me like: ''What the fuck are you saying?'' :lol:

    They knew they were traps, and they weren't careful! They were so stupid I really didn't care if they died or not.
    Also, I kinda stopped paying attention about halfway through...
    Could've been worse, I guess.

    North By Northwest (1959) - 4/5 - Maybe if I were in the audience in 1959, this film would've blown me away. But now in 2013, after seeing many films in the same vein, I can't say I was thoroughly impressed. It was still enjoyable.

    That's not the film's fault.

    Despicable Me 2 - I watched the dubbed Croatian version, which certainly took away from the experience. Few funny moments, overall nothing special. Didn't like the story. What saves this movie are the minions, one of the best characters ever. :lol: 6/10

    RED 2 - 6/10 - It's still a laughfest action movie, especially with badass action scenes. However, the story is too familiar and close to predictable, and Bruce Willis doesn't entirely have the good comedy acting he had in the first movie. +1 though for including "Given Up" in the movie :p

    Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters - 6/10 - Predictable movie, but still fun to watch. It's much funnier than the first movie.

    Maniac (2012) - 4/5 - Frodo Baggins as a murdering psychopath. Really enjoyed it. The gore was intense.

    Wait, what? I really just didn't like the movie. There was only one or two scenes out of many that caught my attention.

    No that's totally fine, but I thought those action sequences were really well choreographed. The thing about The Raid: Redemption is it's not really a film you watch for character or story, it's more for the high octane action. I get people not liking it for the basic underdeveloped story, but like... the Mad Dog fight at the end... so badass.
