Well, I saw the first 3 seasons when they came out, then I stopped...skipped season 4 and 5 for some reason, and saw season 6 and I saw the very last episode of the show too. So I went back and saw season 4 and I'm currently watching 5.



Yeah, season 4 is better, imo. John Lithgow was a really good villain and made that season better than 3.

Only thing I remember from S5 is Johnny Lee Miller from Trainspotting is in it :lol

There's like laugh out loud awfulness in S8, especially the finale.
I've heard about the finale back there, had a sad...
Not sure I want to tarnish my love for first two seasons by watchin' the inferior one's.

S3 was sooo meh, I nearly died of boredom. :lol

he was 4. One was the whole murder mom mystery, two was the bayside butcher where they found the ocean graveyard, three Dexter had someone that wanted to kill bad guys too that would help Dexter cover up his murders and then 4 was the Trinity Killer, which people consider that to be the best season, I feel like it gets that because of that gut punch final scene,
I personally still like season one more.

I liked season 5 and 6, they were ok but man did Deb and Dex get weird in the end. you could watch seasons 1-4 and stop there honestly. I loved the first 4 seasons, season one is a 10/10 to me, some of the best television you could watch.

Watch at least the first season of Dexter. It's great.

I remember watching the first episode just as a lark wondering how a show about a serial killer would appeal to people, and I was hooked! I told my wife (girlfriend at the time) about it and she was very hesitant because she's squeamish, and then she got hooked! Outstanding storytelling in that first season.

The last couple of seasons of Dexter - and the last season especially - are so bad that they almost make you forget that it was ever any good at all.

If Dexter had put on a leather jacket and water-skied over a shark it wouldn't have looked out of place. In fact one of the last shots wasn't far off it.

To be honest, as good as Lithgow was, the show should've ended after season 2.

The decisions in S8 are so disjointed and nonsensical, especially the ending. There's much embarrassment to behold in that season, believe me.

I agree. Doakes was a hard act to follow.

Still my favorite scene of the show.

Sopranos was ballsy but understandably frustrating to a lot of fans.

I'm a Lost fan and love that ending but I get why a lot of people don't.

The Dexter ending is like the monkey scene in Crystal Skull. You were pretty sure it wasn't going to be great, but you never thought it would get THAT bad.

Did you read that run-down online theorising on the meaning of the last sequence (vis-a-vis use of camera and references to earlier seasons and The Godfather? I found it pretty convincing, and I'm satisfied with that interpretation of the ending.

Yeah, I can't recall the site but they really analyze shot for shot of the final scene and make it very obvious what went down went it cut to black. I'm fully happy with the ending and if you pay attention to the vacation scene with Tony and Bobby in the boat, they tell you exactly what the ending was.

During the final scene, Tony looks up and the camera goes to his view very deliberately over and over, to hammer it home you see what's happening through his eyes. Then, it cuts to black after he looks up one more time. Even the "Member's Only" jacket guy said in the script that he walks from the bathroom to Tony's table, I assume off camera.

On Dexter...I was a huge fan and binge watched it with the girlfriend on Blu. We were hooked but it kept getting worse. After I finished watching the last season, I was so put off that I took the whole series on Blu and sold it for peanuts just to get rid of it. I couldn't believe what they did with that last season.

Don't have Amazon prime, canceled Netflix a month ago, haven't had cable TV for 2 years, I rent from my local video store every so often and go to the theater for certain movies every few months. I usually just watch films from my personal Blu Ray / DVD collection which I am always building on through my addiction of purchasing Blu Rays off of eBay constantly.

Not bad at all. I thought it was imaginative, told a decent origin story, and had some decent action. Obviously I’m not their target audience but I think any kid 9-11 years old would enjoy the movie. Jackman was great, and the kid was ok. The guy playing Hook was…odd. He was totally hamming it up, as a cross between Karl Urban’s Dr. McCoy and Han Solo specifically from ROTJ. If he would have toned it down, he would have been fantastic. As written, the character was great—the best Han Solo derivative character I’ve seen in a long time. Some dodgy CGI here and there, but the flying boats were really cool. It’s a shame the movie has gotten so quickly dismissed. If you have kids, give it a chance with them.

Been watching a lot of Rachel McAdams lately, and she does romance pretty well tbh. This film had me in some tears, but overall, I think it's incredible! My biggest issue (which isnt really a big deal) is the connection of his travels. It was too random at times and even the finale felt like that. But everything does a certain job -- and that, I can appreciate. I'm just wondering if at the ending, was he able to go home at will or was that due to the circumstances?

Victor Frankenstein - 4/10

Started off fairly interesting, but got boring mid-way through. As much as I think McAvoy Can be a good actor, he really hams it up in too many of his movies, and this one is no exception. There might have been a good movie in there somewhere, but the Director lost his way. Charles Dance is wasted in a one scene role, years ago, I imagine he could have made a good Dr. Frankenstein in his own right. Also, I think the Director suffers from whatever syndrome that afflicts Guy Ritchie.

This is Radcliffes movie, and he is decent in it, but often gets over-shadowed by McAvoy.

Fassbender definitely works more than any of them and it just feels like J-Law is everywhere, but McAvoy has made several smaller films over the years. I've heard Trance is a good one.

Trance was okay, I think his best performance in recent years was probably Filth or the Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, but both of those movies are also only okay in my opinion. His body of work is certainly not as impressive as Fassbender’s, I’d like to see him do more.

I was very surprised to learn that the montages weren't Wright's:

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2015-07-17/ant-man-director-explains-the-differences-from-edgar-wright-version

I too thought all along that Wright would have made a much better movie, even though I thoroughly enjoyed Ant Man. But after having read that article, I'm not entirely convinced it would have been better per se.

Anyway, finally saw Cap: Civil War: 9/10

Maybe an 8.875/10. I thought it was great, but I think Winter Soldier *just* edges it out. Definitely among the very best of the Marvel movies, of which I consider WS, CW and the first Iron Man to be on top. I loved how well drawn all the characters were. Even though I liked both of Whedon's Avengers, it does feel like the characters are a little bit of a caricature of who they really are. In the Russo movies, all the characters feel like 100% real people. That's a huge factor for my enjoyment with these comic book movies.

Daimajin - 4/10

A 1966 Japanese supernatural, monster movie, with a plotline that's similar to a Zatoichi film. I guess it should be worth nothing, that the director, Kimiyoshi Yasuda, also directed several entries to the Zatoichi series.

As for the plot itself, poor villagers are being oppressed by a lord who usurped his master, and then a giant stone monster (aka. a dude in a plaster suit) shows up to save the day. The monster design was terribly cheap, and the movie isn't anything special, at all. However, the acting was fairly decent in some instances. I thought that the performances from the "bad guys" were substantially better than the "heroes" - who were powerless, annoying, and idiotic at best.

It's available on YouTube with English subs, or dubbed if you want to have some lulz.

Well, Braveheart was a historically-based film, so a happy ending for the character was never going to happen. William Wallace may have died like a dog, but he inspired generations of people. He's a big national hero in Scotland, too.

Let's get a few things clear- Bale isn't my favorite Batman, (that honor goes to Kevin Conroy and Keaton) and I really dislike Nolan's style of pretentious storytelling, but as a film, this has a lot to pull people into Batman even if they're not into superheroes. Taking cues from Batman: Year One, this is a near perfect introduction to the character.

Yeah it definitely reinvigorated the character. Although the ultra realistic real world take I think watered down Batman a lot. Which is why I love the Arkham series so much, since it's a real world take while still having that comic flavored reality.

Truth be told, it felt like a pity attempt. He was good, but he has played others characters much better. I'd say he should of won for Wolf instead of Matthew Mconaughey. I'd say Jacob Tremblay should of been nominated and gotten the win for best male performance.


Yep, me too. I give it a solid 8/10 too. It's on par with Civil War IMO.

Civil War ranks higher for me based on action, but XM:A builds up Apocalypse much better than Zemo. Not to say Zemo wasn't great, but it just didn't strike me as dastardly.


X-men Apocalypse 8/10 - endlessly fun and totally out there, and a great end to a trilogy.

Idk if I'd say end of a trilogy. It does sort of, with the new team; but it still feels like we got a lot coming forward.

I agree that I've definitely seen him in better roles, but he was good in this nonetheless.

Revenant is Dicaprio's best film by far, at least to me. Saying he got the Oscar out of pity is pretty insulting. There are many deserving actors much older than he is, who never got an Oscar, Harrison Ford comes to mind.

I agree with Doc it was a pity Oscar. He's definitely been better in other stuff. Like I said, he was fine. But I truly believe Hardy and Gleeson were better in the movie. To be fair, I don't think Leo was really given that much to do except look angry and in pain.

And Ford Oscar-worthy? Maaaaybe. Listen, I LOVE the man. I grew up without a father and he was the closest thing I had to a father figure (very sad, I know!). But I realize he's not the greatest actor out there. Very true he's given some great performances. He was deservedly nominated for Witness. But overall I can easily say Leo is a better actor.

I won't deny that Ford gave up a bit with the acting, but any look at movies like Witness and (especially) Mosquito Coast, shows that he definitely has the chops.

I think his last big swing for an Oscar was Regarding Henry, but I'm glad that such an obvious and trite movie didn't win any.

Personally I am not huge on most of Leo's work, I do like Shutter Island and The Departed but that's mostly due to Scorsese's direction. I recognize he's a good actor... I just don't think he's the prodigy the rest of the world seems to think he is. I like Harrison more. Neither of them hold a place in my top 10 favorites though.

Honestly, I think Leo has better roles too. Ford has two famous characters, Indy and Solo, but other than that...his other film roles are average. Leo doesn't have a franchise character, but his overall body of work is better, imo.

My Left Foot

"My Left Foot" is a film about a bloke called Daniel Day Lewis, who's all mental, except for his left foot, right, but, and he has arguments - I can't remember it - he has an argument with his dad or something, I can't remember, I wasn't watching it properly, but, even though he's mental apart from the foot, he does stuff with the foot, that we can do all over, he uses that to his best, I think he might write a book or something, or paint. And the moral of this story is, you know, even if you've only got a foot that works, you can still win prizes, cause it won the Oscar.

Rain Man, it’s got Tom Cruise in it, and he’s alright, he’s normal, but he finds out he’s got a brother who’s a bit mad – Dustin Hoffman is doing it, right? And he’s meant to be - he’s all weird but he’s meant to be, so it’s good acting. Now, he – oh, God – he needs to keep his brother but they don’t want him to have a brother and he doesn’t remember a lot but he dropped him in the bath and burnt him when he was little – clumsy idiot.

But then he finds out he can make a bit of money so they get the same suits, and they go bet two for good, one - cause he’s got special powers. So he can know what the - where the- roulette. He wins that, and he drops some toothpicks – he knows how many there are. AND he recognizes the waitress through the book. He’s got all his football cards - don’t put them out of order, don’t go into a telephone box with him – he smells, and get him back in time for Jeopardy or watch it.

Anyway, then they slap his head and get worried - "Qantas don’t crash" - so he’s got all that, and in the end, he doesn’t, I don’t think, but they were - at least they’ve met each other.

Try to imagine only rating movies while your drunk, and never actually thinking about if the film actually stands up as good when you sober up.

The Nice Guys ... 8/10. Really entertaining.

Double Indemnity. 10/10. One of the greatest film noir movies ever made. With Fred McMurray, of all people.

John Wick ... 7/10. Solid revenge movie. Cool fight scenes.

Illegal (1955). 8/10. Edward G. Robinson courtroom movie. I've been trying to watch some old stuff on TCM. I liked it a lot.

The Man from UNCLE. 8/10. Felt like one of the Connery Bond movies. Really stylish spy movie, and interesting to see the genre kicked back into the 60s. Didn't actually see the last half hour (I fell asleep ... not a commentary on the movie, it was late), but I really liked the rest. I hope they make a sequel.

oh look, another film snob. This thread needs more of those...

Damn right...or maybe I am not as easily entertained as some people? I know alot of people will watch just about anything...especially if its got T&A , bad jokes or lots of action and death......that's obvious from American culture. (just look at the TV line ups).

Myself I prefer, plot, character development, pacing, score, editing , acting, directing, effects, and the combinations of them to tell a cohesive story that entertains, educated or moves me....

So I guess people are free to rate anything anyway they want....

Yep ....
John Wick 10/10! Just as good as Star Wars!
Deadpool .....Awesome, better than Shawshank Redemption. (why cause it entertained me for 2 hours)
Hot Tub Time Machine....INCREDIBLE FILM! Much better than It's a Wonderful Life!!!!

No wonder Hollywood can produce such crap every year.....when people accept it as good entertainment....

Scale or not, it's always subjective, even from a critical POV.

You can have a "scale" and still give away 9's and 10's like it's candy, it just means your threshold is wider, for whatever reasons.

I have to agree with Xipotec in that it seems lots of people seem to give away super high scores way too easy, but it's their right.
