Very serious.
Normally I'm all over that kind of stuff, the dumber the better. But it was, both of them, were just so forced that only a few jokes ended up working on me. Otherwise they felt like being with that one guy we've all known at some point in our lives, he's not necessarily anyone's friend in particular, but he's always been around for years for some reason. And every joke he makes he sits there staring at everyone until they laugh.Agreed. I haven't seen the second one yet but the first had maybe one or two clever jokes, and even those weren't very funny IMO. Everything else felt forced and just being dumb for the sake of being dumb.

Another of those actioners that never gets old no matter how many times I watch it. Just gets better. Dutton and Hauer make a great pair. It's too bad they die, because I'd love to have seen those characters in a movie just about them as a sequel.

I don't rank 2 anywhere near 1 but that isn't a plot hole.

His past self traveled back in time. His present self than traveled back and was able to see a slightly younger version of himself. It does actually make sense. You could travel back to when you were a baby when you are 35 and you would still exist as a baby because you already did. It's the same concept but the seperation of age is only a few hours.

This was the last movie I saw, as well. I give it 4/10. The only redeeming qualities were the handful of chuckles I had, but in general, I thought it was mediocre and incredibly disappointing relative to the hilarious first film. They tried to play off of the successful parts of the first film and usually failed mightily. The network anchor battles part was a real low in many ways, despite getting so many major talents to show up for that scene.

Killer Joe ... 6.5/10. Eh. It was alright. Redneck noir movie. McConaughey was great. Plot was a little mundane. Can't figure out why it was NC17, though.

The Lone Ranger ... 7/10. Not great, but better than I expected. Maybe I'm just happy to see a western hit the screen every once in a while. The Lone Ranger was a bit too much of a bumbling fool ... would've been better if he'd have been the other brother. I'd prefer a badass to an idiot. Depp was fine as Tonto. The evil corporate white guy "plot twist" is getting old. I actually found it mildly refreshing when they said thought the Commanches were raiding settlement camps ... old fashioned cowboys & Indians stuff.

Not true. I was open to it and even the director at first. I didn't hate on it until I saw the actual content(suit), trailer and SDCC panel. I watched it and gave it a fair chance. I payed my $4.50 matinee.

I hated on Cabin in the Woods too and when I saw it I admitted it was ok. Not the amazing thing the Whedon nuts here said but ok.

This movie was not ok.

Some people here have **** taste, that's no suprise from the board where I've seen more 10/10 Avenger ratings than anywhere else. Or instant hype over a mediocre movie where someones just gotta have a 2k figure from it nao!

Much grander scale, not as relentless and overall I don't think the fights are as inventive. However some of the action scenes away from the fighting are amazing. Story is surprisingly good. Just an overall better production. Its incredibly gory and doesn't hold back. Can't wait for part 3 with Tony Jaa in it too.

I recently caught the 2004 remake of Thunderbirds - 7 / 10.

Not nearly as bad as I expected! The story was a bit meh - but yeah. Lots of tips of the hat to the old TV show, & I actually quite liked it for the most part. The island, the mansion, the tech - all great. I thought they could've cast someone else for Lady Penelope, but the actress they went with was alright. Parker was spot on!! :lol

Ben Kingsley as the villain was absolutely PERFECT casting. That oriental looking bald guy with the crazy eyes in the old TV show - Sir Ben was the first guy I thought of as a potential candidate when I first heard they were making the film - & they cast him! :lol

Bill Paxton as the dad - nah. The whole story revolving around a 'kid' Alan (the other four brothers were forgettable anyway) - nah. Tin Tin being Indian, & the villain's niece? Nah. I like that she had his powers though.. :lol

I'll probably buy it if I see it around, but I still have to buy the old series first!!

Django Unchained. 9/10. I'll admit to missing the first half-hour or so. Still, the rest was a very well-done revenge western. I'm into both revenge movies and westerns, so its right in my wheelhouse. I didn't find it quite the anti-white flick some billed it as. The revenge seemed to be act-specific rather than race-specific ... and the most satisfying revenge seemed to be against SLJ more than DiCaprio. Really great movie. Maybe one of my favorite Tarantino movies. Great gunfights. Blood effects were excessive. I wouldn't think bullet wounds would splash quite like that. That part almost reminded me of the absurd gunfights in Last Man Standing (w/ Bruce Willis) ... where a single shot from a .45 sends somebody flying across a street. Seems like a lot of trouble for absurdity.

Jackie Brown ... 7/10. It was alright. Watchable, but not Tarantino's best. Big fan of Elmore Leonard, and I like Tarantino a lot. Wasn't as good as I expected, given the involvement of those two. Never been much of a fan of Pam Grier. First role I ever saw her in was as a fairly convincing transsexual in Escape From LA, and that's been a tough first image to shake. I like Michael Keaton a lot, though. It'd be interesting to see a series built around his character. SLJ was a badass ... but roughly the same character he always plays. It was interesting seeing DeNiro as a bumbling lackey rather than the top dog.

Wyatt Earp. 8/10. Good enough. Bit long. Costner was better than I expected as Earp. He tends to play the same character in most every movie ... a nice guy. He started off that way in this one, but played the sullen Earp better than I expected. Quaid's Holliday was great. I need to watch Tombstone again to justly compare it to Kilmer's Holliday.

I think its one of his best movies. I just recently rewatched it as I hadn't seen it since seeing it in the theatres several years ago, I think I actually enjoyed it more now. His "apprentice" didn't annoy me half as much as he did on my original viewing for some reason.

Dane Cook is an annoying character in general, and I think the movie exploited that fact by having the audience root against him. I loved his cameo on Louie, which also played a bit on that.

Thor: The Dark World 6.5/10
Very disappointed. I really enjoyed the first one and I just thought this one was dull and lifeless. I really didn't feel anything towards any of the characters. It all felt a bit rushed from one action piece to the next without giving the characters some chance to get to know them. Maybe Heimdall got a little more character development.

I didn't like the laser pew pew guns that Asgard now seems to have--way too space-y for that world. I don't mind it when they're on staffs or even the glowing swords. I see that world sticking with traditional weaponry, even if they can shoot lasers, and rejecting pistols as "uncivilized". Kinda like how Obi-Wan and the Jedi feel.

This one and Cap: First Avenger are at the bottom of the Avengers/Marvel movies heap for me. Still better than Man of Steel, though.

August: Osage County: 3/10

As a platform for decent actors to act decently, it's pretty good. But in every other way it sucks. The characters are a bunch of unlikable caricatures. There wasn't any real heart that I could tell, the story wasn't very deep or fulfilling on any level unless you're someone who can get pleasure out of just watching a bunch of miserable, horrible people be miserable and horrible to each other. This is the opposite of what I want to see when I watch a movie. If my wife wasn't watching it, and if I weren't doing other things so it was on in the background, I would have turned it off after about 10 minutes.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - 8/10

My second favourite Spider-Man film after "Spider-Man 2". It is the most 'comic-booky' and 'fun' Spider-Man movie so far, yet at the same time the most emotional. Some of the scenes and dialogue could've literally been ripped out of a comic book page, almost as if I was watching a very crisp and fluent motion comic.

Andrew Garfield continues to put his own, very enjoyable, stamp on the Peter Parker/Spider-Man character. He acts, behaves, speaks JUST LIKE Spidey in the comics. To quote Harry Osborn; Garfield "...does everything... that a Spider can". Emma Stone is irresistable as Gwen Stacy. Jamie Foxx does a good enough job as Electro; not amazing, but not bad by any means. The REAL villain of this movie is Dane DeHaan / Harry Osborn. He oozes Osborn filth. Truly a great interpretation of the character.

I am really looking forward to where they take this franchise next.

Right but often you have to factor in a boost of 1-2 "fanboy" points depending on the person. So if someone with a Spider-Man handle, avatar or sig is giving it an 8 or 8.5 then that might mean it's really a 6 or 6.5 for the rest of us.

Any bias on my part is normally due to a nostalgia factor moreso than fanboyism. I mean I love Terminator and I think T3 is complete cack. Not enjoyable on any level really.

Series is very enjoyable and stays true to the characters. The teenage humor is also balanced fairly well with the action. Subplots could be handled better from episode to episode but non-theless a great series thus far.

Yeah, I don't know why I said that, they really do hold up pretty well too.

Are you looking forward to the remake?
I don't know much about it - I'm more of a Verhoeven fan than anything really.

Because that's how the book goes. And Verhoeven's film satirizes Heinlein's vision.

But those moments in the movie aren't intended as satire at all, they're just weakly performed.

Anyway I've head different of the book actually, that it's quite more powerful than the movie, but I haven't read it, I still have to finish Carrie, after that I'm tackling SST.

It's the militarist manifesto, too preachy for one dimensional vision.
Good sci-fi nevertheless.

In my life I've only encountered a handful of stories that are better in their movie adaptations than in their original books, are you saying this is one of them?

Cause I was expecting the book to deliver a stronger experience than the movie.

The Passion of the Christ. 9/10. Never got around to seeing this before. Extremely well done. True to the source material, even with some directoral elaboration. Quite possibly the most horrifically brutal movie I've ever watched. But, with purpose. Only reason it isn't a 10/10 is I probably would've extended the story to show a couple of the post-resurrection appearances. Seems that would've tied it up more completely.

Well worth a watch.

It's a polarizing film; some praise it, & others are disgusted by it's gruesomeness.

That said, I agree that it's a well made film - & whether one's religious or not, that has to be at least acknowledged. Jim Cavizel (sp?) literally put his life on the line as it were, playing the role. Solid cast, very authentically shot / acted etc - something you'd expect from a mammoth budget & the names involved anyway.

It's definitely worth at least one watch - but personally, once was enough for me. I couldn't sit through all that again.

In more ways than one, apparently. Caviezel was struck by lightning while filming the Sermon on the Mount ...


SCOTT ROSS: It's been rumored, I don't know if this is true or not, but as you were filming you were hit with lightning? That's true?

JIM CAVIEZEL: I was lit up like a Christmas tree! I was doing the Sermon on the Mount. I knew it was going to hit me about four seconds before it happened. I thought, "I'm going to get hit." And when it happened, I saw the extras grab the ground.

What they saw was fire coming out the right and left side of my head. Illumination around the whole body. And during the shot they said, "Do you have it on camera?" What happened was Mel had said, "Action" and the cameras were panning to me and here is where this light just flashed. And by the time the cameras got to me, I hear Mel screaming out, "What the heck happened to his hair?" I looked like I went to see Don King's hair stylist.

JIM CAVIEZEL: Five minutes after I got hit, Jon Mikalini, an assistant, walks over and says are you okay? And then he got hit. The difference was that they saw the bolt come down and hit Jon; they didn't see that when I was standing there. All I felt was this giant tremendous slap on my ears and a few seconds of a pink, red static in front of my eyes.

That qualifies as one of the eerier filmshoot occurrences I've ever heard of. He also apparently suffered hypothermia and a dislocated shoulder during the filming of the crucifixion.

I think the polarization has more to do with it being difficult to watch than any complaints about the content itself with regard to accuracy to the source material, or being more brutal than the story justified. It is a bit difficult to watch, though. But, I think that was the point.

It's Jarmusch, he can't disappoint those who understand him.

Also I wanted Hiddleston to play Eric Draven since new "Crow" was announced and this film shows why.
I wouldn't be able to adequately perceive Luke Evans in that role knowing that Tom got ignored.

I caught two Aussie horror films recently:

The Reef - 7 / 10

Not bad. Some excellent shark footage tied in with the actors in the water. Some nice cinematography, decent suspense, but fairly predictable too.


Black Water - 5 / 10

Borderline crap actually. Really dumb people make some decisions, & pay for those dumb decisions. :lol
The plausibility of the crocodile's behaviour (supposedly based on true events) is debatable on a few occasions too.
