    Damn I feel the complete opposite haha. Loved the film. It's a total mood piece. Also, how could you dislike the score? :eek: It was one of the best scores I've heard since The Social Network. Creepy and unsettling, just like the movie itself.

    Aliens (1986) - 4.5/5

    Seriously, Sigourney Weaver is the ultimate badass female ever! Loved the movie. One minor nitpick would be Bill Paxton's character, boy was he annoying.

    The Thing (1982) – It was good... enjoyable at parts. Unintentionally humorous in others (like in the beginning where Garry breaks the window to shoot at the Norwegian, I almost died laughing :lol:). I suppose the film's biggest virtue is the paranoic not-knowing-who's-infected element. The special effects are decent for its time (although sometimes awkwardly unrealistic). But nothing about the movie really made me go "wow". It's not that scary, well-acted or suspenseful to really be absorbing or astonishing. It's just not that good. But far from bad, too, and my overall impression is slightly positive – hence, 6/10.

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 8/10 - Aside from weak human characters, this film was a blast to watch. Andy Serkis deserves to be top-billed, and the apes have never looked better. Toby Kebbell as Koba gives him a run for his money, though. WAAAAY better than Rise.

    Dawn of the Planet if the Apes- 10/10 This is my kind of movie, and they honestly nailed it. My favorite thing in the movie is the ape/ape interaction. It's so awesome to see how they've learned to communicate and all!! Better than Rise, but Rise was probably an 8/10 for me! I don't see how the next movie can top this one.

    The Lovely Bones - 4/5

    Here's the deal: I'm a total pussy. This was more than enough for me to shit myself. But yeah, enjoyed the story a lot.

    What about it was scary? I just remember feeling depressed and sick to my stomach, but I don't recall anything about the film calling for self-defecation.

    The last movie I saw was that really long one with the Japanese Bugatti, green trenchcoat and fat John Goodman smoking a bullet.

    That whole plot line towards the back half of the movie (while fun) was completely unnecessary. Who's idea was that? :lol:

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 2/5

    So the movie started at 21:30. Here's a live stream of my thoughts.

    21:45 - This is awesome.
    22:00 - Whuut this is great.
    22:15 - Man, this movie is good.
    22:30 - *yawn*
    22:45 - What time is it?
    23:00 - This is a bit boring. Bit very boring.
    23:15 - Just let it end. :puke:
    23:30 - YES! YES! DOBBY IS A FREE ELF!

    My God, it kept dragging and dragging, until I almost fell asleep. And I sat there for two freaking hours and they didn't even tell me who won in the fucking end. Ugh.
