Also surprising.

What surprised you? That I gave the Avengers an 8.5 or that I rated it higher than The Grey (the latter would be an odd reason, since they're very dissimilar films).

I think an 8.5 is a reasonably good score for it.

I've never given any movie a 10/10. I don't hand it out like candy.

Yeah this is what I gather by glancing at the reviews.

I do think the end bit of First Blood cheapened the film a bit, the part where Rambo says all that stuff about 'nam and basically feeds the audience his entire psychological condition.

I felt that was unnecessary, we can already gather what mental trauma he's facing, we don't need him to spell it out. Always better to show rather than tell.

I read one review where it was compared to Taxi Driver - we are never told explicitly about Bickle's mental condition and what made it that way, but we can make a good guess for ourselves, and that's one reason why Taxi Driver is a great film and First Blood is just a good one.

Larry Crown - 1.5/10 Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, how many times am I supposed to care that these two middle aged diaper commericals found some sort of yuppy hipster love with another clueless past their prime adult based soley on them both being hopelessly unlikable.

Water for Elephants - 2/10 Awful plot and storytelling, boring, poor acting even from Waltz, atrocious CGI, unbelievable and completely unlikable characters. How is anyone supposed to root for the love interest when he thinks its ok to release tigers and put small children in danger like that?

Avengers 10/10. How can a reviewer give this film a bad review? Yea, there's nits you can pick (I was a little annoyed that Hulk went from uncontrolled to controlled with no real explanation), but they're nits, not major issues. The film rocked overall, and I was most surprised by how much I liked the Hulk and Rufalo.

The InnKeepers - 5/10. Mediocre ghost story. I had high hopes (I loved the artwork poster for it) but it was slow, lacked plot, and most of the acting was film school quality.

Tree of Life - Very hard to review after seeing it once. This will likely bore the hell out of anyone that gives Avenger type movies 10 out of 10.

I take a slight offense to that statement. I gave both Tree of Life and The Avengers 10/10s. While they are very different movies, I think each are of the highest grade in the execution of their ideas and in their respective genres. Now, if we were to compare them directly to each other, Iíd give Tree of Life a 10 and The Avengers like a 4 or 5. No flaming/trolling - just saying.

I will say that TOL is not for everyone - if you can't go in completely willing to give yourself to the experience that it presents to you, then you will definitely ďnot get itĒ and it will bore you (it did my parents). Itís probably Malickís least accessible movie, so unless you are familiar with his style and/or other works, it can be a chore of a film. However, it can also be one of the most beautiful and rewarding films you may ever see. It has a really wonderful message for those who can open up their hearts and minds to it and take the time out to contemplate and understand it (which, Iíll concede, the average movie goer will not).

That wasn't the conversation I thought we were having. You can compare a movie to all movies, or just some movies, and give them whatever score you want to based on that. All I was saying is that if you are comparing a movie to all other movies, then the term "average" can't apply to 90% of the movies in existence. It's a clear mathematical concept! :panic:

Ghost Recon: Alpha -- 8/10. Tom Clancy's extremely well-produced short-movie prequel to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

Its about 25-mintues long ... they aired it as an X-Play special on G4 last week sometime. My understand is there's a DVD version as well. Does a solid job of introducing the characters and military tech that will presumably be in the game. Good action, good effects, reasonably compelling storyline. Didn't look like a cheap production at all -- apparently there were all kinds of award-winning directors and writers involved in this thing.

It did feel like a long, really well-produced live action cut scene. Surprisingly good, though. Not Oscar stuff ... but an entertaining lead-in to the game. I wonder how many game franchises will take this idea and run with it ... it'd be interesting to have God of War or Call of Duty prequels like that.

Yeah. That's still exactly what I thought you were saying and it's the same concept I'm speaking to above. A movie that you score a 6 is going to remain a 6 regardless of what you compare it to or how many other movies you watch for the rest of your life. Sub categorizing them into genres doesn't change a score. A movie that is average for a comic book film is still average in the rest of the movie world as well. If the only types of movies I've ever seen in my entire life were from one sub genre, that film is still going to be average.

"It's a 10 but then I watched this the other day and so now it's a 5 but then after I watched that it was back up to a 9."

Interesting. Well, I think I can try to make sense of my stance on how I look at movies the way I do (not that Iím sure you care).

1) When I give a movie a score, the score very rarely changes. If I give a movie a 7 the first time, it tends to stay a 7 even after repeated viewings.

2) I tend to score movies based on my enjoyment of them in relation to every other movie I see in a given year. The score is not absolute when compared to every movie I have ever seen. A movie that would be near the top one year might not be anywhere near the top in a year with better movies and thus the score would be affected by it being compared to the other, better movies. A 10 might be a 9 in a different year because there are better movies to compare it to in that year.

3) When I compare movies, the scores can change if they are two completely different type of movies. A comedy I give a 9 to is not the equivalent to a drama with a 9. If I want to laugh or just watch a mindless action movie, there are some that are perfect movies that I would give a 10 to achieve that goal. If I want to watch something deeper or more mentally engaging, I would chose something different that would also be a 10. When comparing the action or horror movie to a movie that actually has a deeper message, the scores will be different. While I think The Big Lebowski is incredibly enjoyable and would give it, as a comedy, a 10, but directly comparing it to something like The Seventh Seal or Army of Shadows and then asking for what score I would give TBL, it would be lower because the other 2 movies have more to say than TBL.

Realistically, I give about a half dozen or so 10s a year, which adds up to quite a bit, but if asked which movies were 10s over the course of the entire history of film, there would be a very small group that would not included most of the ones I have given 10s to over the years.

Does that make anymore sense? Either way, rant over :D

Avengers: 7/10

Good movie, but not up to the "10/10" praise I've seen heaped on it in my eyes.


A movie that you score a 6 is going to remain a 6 regardless of what you compare it to or how many other movies you watch for the rest of your life.
Logically, the only way that is possible is if you have either seen the entire spectrum of possible movies (which really is not possible), or if you change your scale. Otherwise, if you see a movie better than any movie you have ever known, and if you previously gave a movie a 10, then you would have to rank this new movie as a 12 or 15 or something to keep the old movie you are referring to as a 6. But in any case, my point was simply one of your misusing a word. But people do it all the time so it doesn't really matter.

I tend to be generous with scores (not sure I've ever given a 2 out before). I rarely give anything lower than a 6 as I try to avoid movies that I know I won't like. Thought I'd give it a try, thinking it might of had some laughs, but I was wrong.

An 'Average film' mathematically is simply a film that falls within the mean range of all films of all time

In other words, an average film falls into the 50th percentile where 50% of films are better than it, and 50% are worse.
Therefore, given the above, mathematically correct definition of average - to say '90% of films are average', is mathematically incorrect :p

I think that's kara's point

That being said, I would agree that 90% of films are nothing special (as opposed to average :lol)

I really don't understand how this is so hard to understand. If I give Thor a 7 and say it's an average film. What happens when you throw it into the mix of every film ever made. It's still a 7 and it's still an average film, because guess where that score is going to land it? In the average range of every film ever made in history.

The Avengers: 8.75/10
I thought it started out a little clunky, but after a while I really got into it and enjoyed it. Yes, the plot was straightforward which I think would lead people to say the plot was "thin". But maybe movies have just gotten out of hand with twist endings and betrayals, etc., so now people expect that kind of complication in the plot. But I thought it worked fine for this, since there was already all these characters you had to juggle. If you added a cumbersome plotline it would probably have made the movie difficult to follow. But ultimately I thought it was a blast and I didn't want it to end. I thought Cap was handled much better here than in TFA which I didn't get into. I'm very proud of Joss and the success of this movie, and I hope this means he'll get the respect he deserves. And more importantly, I hope he gets more high profile projects to lead.

If a 7 is the middle movie made, out of a range of all possible movies, then yes, it is "average." But you seemed to agree before that the Thor and Cap movies were better than the middle range of all possible movies. In which case, it is a misuse of the term. Going back to void's point, technically, you could have a mean or median of 7 with movies ranging in theory from 0 to 10 in score, if you've got many more great movies than really crappy ones, but I don't think this was what you were referring to. If I remember correctly, you said you ranked movies like a grade scale, so less than 6 is a "fail?" But the assumption is that there are many more decent than crap movies, because when you do a grading scale that way, you assume that students will easily obtain a certain baseline level of knowledge, and that the majority of the variation exists over 60 or 70%.

And I just want to say here that I have no idea why the ____ I get involved in these stupid conversations (that admittedly, I often initiate), nor do I know why I insist on responding to responses to my posts :lol I'm gonna try to stop it. Honest.

I really don't understand how this is so hard to understand. If I give Thor a 7 and say it's an average film. What happens when you throw it into the mix of every film ever made. It's still a 7 and it's still an average film, because guess where that score is going to land it? In the average range of every film ever made in history.

I agree with this.

If a 7 is the middle movie made, out of a range of all possible movies, then yes, it is "average." But you seemed to agree before that the Thor and Cap movies were better than the middle range of all possible movies. In which case, it is a misuse of the term. Going back to void's point, technically, you could have a mean or median of 7 with movies ranging in theory from 0 to 10 in score, if you've got many more great movies than really crappy ones, but I don't think this was what you were referring to. If I remember correctly, you said you ranked movies like a grade scale, so less than 6 is a "fail?" But the assumption is that there are many more decent than crap movies, because when you do a grading scale that way, you assume that students will easily obtain a certain baseline level of knowledge, and that the majority of the variation exists over 60 or 70%.

And I just want to say here that I have no idea why the ____ I get involved in these stupid conversations (that admittedly, I often initiate), nor do I know why I insist on responding to responses to my posts :lol I'm gonna try to stop it. Honest.

Like you say the take on the story is nice and fresh and I really like all the interactions between the characters. Robin and his merry men really seem like an awesome bunch. Also the the whole feel of the medieval England they created, combined with the great music definitely makes this a great watch for me.

The Avengers - 10/10

Just came back from my 3rd viewing, and my 1st in IMAX 3D... This movie is great!

Pretty much a perfect comic book movie, and is definitely the best comic book movie ever produced (IMO). There is a perfect balance of action, character development, humour, and awesome "comic book geek out" moments!

Christ Evans is brilliant as Captain America, I loved some of his dialogue and scenes, and they did a great job in showing a conflicted man out of time eventually rising to take leadership of the team. I'm glad they gave him the most screen time.

Also, as already discussed, Ruffalo is excellent as Bruce Banner/The Hulk... Ah who am I kidding?! EVERY SINGLE character is portrayed perfectly and is given their equal share of time to shine, there isn't a single thing I would change about ANY of them.

Bring on Captain America 2, Thor 2, Iron Man 3, and, of course, The Avengers 2

Good day!

Had a movie night with the wife and kids for Mother's Day this weekend. The two movies my wife chose were Thor and Moneyball. And ... she really liked both of them. Guess she's a keeper. Heh.


Thor -- 8/10. Just got around to seeing it -- I've heard it is one of the few you must see before Avengers. I wouldn't rate it as highly as Captain America or Iron Man, and certainly not in the league of Nolan's Dark Knight franchise ... but it was very entertaining. The wife liked Thor more than Cap.

Of all the big-time comic superheroes to get a movie recently, Thor was the character I was least familiar with from boyhood. Batman and Superman were ubiquitous. I was familiar enough with Green Lantern, Wolverine, X-Men, Spider-man, Cap, Fantastic Four, Hulk, and Iron Man that I knew who they were, their backstory, and most of the villains and major players. I knew almost nothing about Thor ... Norse God, hammer. The little girl from "Adventures in Babysitting" was obsessed with him ... heh. Honestly, never heard of Loki before this movie. Movie did a good job of making a relatively unknown character -- at least to me -- compelling.

Moneyball 9/10. Quickly shoots near the top of my list of favorite baseball flicks. I read the book quite a while ago, so I knew the basic story. Still ... its difficult to make a compelling movie about groundbreaking statistical analysis of on-field baseball performance. Pitt was solid as Bean. Hoffman was good as Art Howe -- he seemed to get the mannerisms about right. I always liked Art. I heard Howe was pretty pissed off about it, though ... probably mostly the look. Hoffman is short and dumpy -- Art Howe is tall and built like a Marine.

Chronicle 7.5/10

Loved the concept, although still following along the lines of the typical high school hierarchy and angsty bullied drama, I guess that was the point. Giving these kids powers you have the different social groups, loner/forgotten/abused kid, the All American kid who can do it all, and the self removed, I'm too cool for school kid just to win the girl guy.

Following a certain formula and throwing it a curve ball like super powers is nothing new, but still refreshing from what's become a market of oversaturated hero films.

I do find it hard to believe that only Andrew was curious enough to keep pushing their powers to the limit. It was Steve though who figured out they could fly, but it seems like aside from that, they didn't really care about their powers too much. I'd be friggin psyched, and knowing what I know, (I'm assuming that while the film is grounded in reality, comics to exist in that reality) I'd be trying to pull of some pretty major ____.

Overall though it was fun and the mockumentary style wasn't horrible like most of those films are, but they covered that up pretty well with the fact that Andrew was the one controlling it.

Definitely got a Akira vibe at the end, with Andrew doing some great Tetsuo moments.

Would be nice to see an alternative film to this as if someone else had stumbled upon the hole prior or after the trio did and expand on that person. Much like how they wanted to do the same with Cloverfield, when they mentioned there were other people holding cameras in certain shots.


Haywire 6/10

I like Soderbergh's films because for the most part they're very understated. This one had a nice spy vibe to it but the story wasn't all that interesting. The How and Why that Gina's character is explaining doesn't seem all that gripping. In most action flicks we don't really care, we just want to see action, but this a different type of filmmaker.

I like the lean dialogue throughout the film. Most people complained about Gina's acting. I think it fit the tone just right. You don't expect these government officials and assassins to be full of emotion. They're quick and too the point and Gina did that just right.

The action was good too. It felt real. No, enhanced sound effects for any of the hits, very little blood because the blows are not Superman powered but quick, which means you need a lot of hits to take your opponents down.

I personally liked the music. It fit the tone of the film.

The Devil Inside - 4/10

What a mess. It actually starts out with an interesting premise but ends up going nowhere, literally. This movie has perhaps the worst ending I've ever seen, in the sense that it has no ending at all. It's as if they couldn't figure out how to resolve the story and decided to just stop in the middle of the third act.

it was the first movie i've ever walked out of.
i walked out a hour and ten minutes in so thats all i saw.
but it was one of the worst movies i've ever saw.

i love how thor said "I've come here to put and end to Loki's schemes".
Loki's schemes its funny how bad it is but its a lot more boring than funny.
the first hour and ten minutes of avengers was just boring cheese dialogue with them telling us backstories,
and had only 2 short fight scenes that were very bad and really boring.
it's an awful movie.

Better than I was expecting. Liam Neeson was good as always. And I love Diane Kruger. A solid thriller despite the fairly common premise, but honestly at the end of the day it was nothing to write home about.

I wasn't expecting the reveal to be what it was. It was a new twist on this type of movie, so that was pretty much what it had going for it besides Liam and Diane.

And OMG. January Jones. She is simply phenomenally TERRIBLE! Wow.

I rate on the level of entertainment I get from watching a movie.
Sure, Jaws is a great movie, but yesterday it was only an 8.5 for me. Next time I see it might as well be a 9 or 10.

I watch movies for my enjoyment. I have no carreer in filmmaking or any of it's processes and (most likely) will never have.
Of course I could form an amateur opinion on every aspect of filmmaking and pretend to know what I'm talking about, but let's face it. I'm no director, not a casting agent, not a light or sound expert. I could of course go watch a movie for all that stuff, but that would mean for me to pay attention to stuff that will pull me out of the story I'm experiencing.

Is The Avengers worth a full 10/10 when you look at the technical side of filmmaking... no, probably not.
Is it worth a 10/10 to me purely because of the greatnes it was to see the superheroes I've seen and loved in their own movies come together and kick some major ass? Hell yes!


Rating movies is just giving a number system to your opinion. You don't have to agree with it. Just respect it.

Russell Crowe is an ex-spec ops guy who makes his living doing ransom negotiations for kidnapped businessmen. Meg Ryan's husband (one of the terrorists from The Rock) gets kidnapped in some third-world hellhole -- Crowe tries to get him back. So far, haven't seen a Russell Crowe movie I've disliked.

It was pretty good but I didn't love it. Still agree with Devil however, best of the X-Men series. My biggest problem is the movies all over the place, kinda like COD Black Ops, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. The James Bond Nazi Hunter stuff was good, I liked the setting and plot, most characters were well cast. Fassbender of course is always awesome and the best part of this one. Mcavoy is also quite good and I could imagine him becoming Patrick Stewart. In some scenes the relationships, particularly Beast and Mystique felt forced to me. I didn't care for the Banshee/Angel fight, would have been alot better w/o it imo. I actually had to laugh at Mystique's reaction to Charles at the end, and when he kept saying he couldn't feel his legs, it felt like it was a bit late, we already knew it so it came off as corny rather then sad. Aside from Magneto's stuff, the best scene was Jackman's cameo. I actually had to turn to my friend and confirm Hugh Jackman said f___, where were those balls in Wolverine Origins? Bring on the sequel.
