Lawless - GREAT movie, based on a true story. Neat to see what happened back then. 8/10

Expendables 2 - Rented for laughs and that's about all we got. 1/10

colorider 12-10-12 12:52 PM

Dark Shadows - 5/10 It was decidedly average. Too bad for a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp combo.

FLIGHT - 4 maybe a 5

The movie was so predictable, the acting was bad, the frontal nudity at the beginning was totally unnecessary and the drug how-to-do-it scenes turned me off.

The movie is NOTHING like the previews. I was expecting to see some sort of courtroom drama pitting good pilot Danzel vs. corporate airlines/manufacturers. Instead I got a melodrama about drug and alcohol use. :notamused:

SKYFALL - 8 or 9. I really enjoyed this movie. :thumb:

:( Nooooooooo I wanted to see it.

Batman Dark Knight Rises - 10/10 - Finally got to see it, LOVED IT!!!

Bourne Legacy - 5/10 - wasn't as good as the others, kind of disappointed.

soundtrack is arguably my favorite movie soundtrack of all time.

Right, Cat Stevens was a good call, but Ruth Gordon makes any film a 9.5

The Hobbit... saw it in IMAX 3D at midnight last Thursday, and it was a solid 9.5. The only reason it was not a 10 is because it was not as accessible to the general public as I would have liked. You really need to be a Tolkien nut to appreciate all of the stuff that Jackson & Co. threw in there, a lot of which appears to many - including the critics - as filler. The hardcore fans, however, view it as being an attention to detail that might have been missing from the LOTR trilogy, which could understandably not be filled with as much detail given the dense amount of material in the books.

The scenes in the Shire are beautiful, and Martin Freeman is Bilbo Baggins, moreso than Elijah Wood as Frodo. The scenes with Gollum were amazing; such depth of character I have never seen in "performance capture". And I am ecstatic to have THREE more films to enjoy Gandalf the Grey.

I plan to see The Hobbit again sometime this week, this time in 48 fps.

Great to hear. I plan on seeing it later this week.

Saw Silver Linings Playbook on Saturday. I liked it 7.5/10.

ooga-booga 12-17-12 09:52 PM

also saw the hobbit. as critics have said, it's a slow mover but i never found myself checking my watch. after the first viewing, i give it an 8.5/9. plan on seeing it again
in the next week and i could easily see myself giving it a solid 9+. the nz scenery, as always, is a 10. never read the books but found the whole mountain stone giants
segment weird and superfluous. that is my only serious complaint. and yes, also very happy to have more tolkien films in the pipeline.

went from that theater directly into the latest bond-skyfall (yes, i paid for 2 tickets). i give it an 7.5. casino royale (to me) is still my fave of all bond movies topping the old favorite-goldfinger. more than a little distraught at seeing waay more judi dench than necessary and not enough of javier bardem's best girl.

Judi Dench/"M" was the focus of the story, so it makes sense that she'd be so prominent.

For me lately --

Hobbit: 7/10 or less. Not sure why I just don't get into LOTR (ooh, computer drawings everywhere, and weird names that I can never keep track of). Besides, I can't help but think of Randall's take on the trilogy in Clerks 2. :lol:

Life Of Pi: 8/10. More if you like the message about finding God, less if you don't like being preached to in a movie theater. Really fabulous in 3D, though.

End Of Watch: 8/10. Rough, hard to watch, but I really got into the characters. The novel filming style was really cool, too.

Wreck-It Ralph: 8/10. Lots of near-disaster scenes, and I've read other accounts of the action being too intense for young viewers, but it's nearly a Pixar-quality storyline. Fun for me and my wife, though.

obviously but why another 'inside' job? that's how the last bond movie started. and there was a turncoat agent in the fairly recent brosnan/halle berry bond movie (name escapes me). can we get past the inside job nonsense? i know it's espionage and you can't trust anyone but sheesh...aren't there other storylines? m16 can't even protect its own cafeteria/latrines from an internal attack?!
and i loved the lack of security for m's inquisition/hearing. they practically had a red carpet down for the villain to walk in. i think the opening sequence with the train/crane and motor touring turkish rooftops was more believable. on second thought, downgrading skyfall from a 7.5 to a 7.

ooga-booga 12-23-12 02:27 AM

studio 54...total fluff job. a 6.5.

Shifty 12-25-12 10:33 PM

Cirque du Soleil, Worlds Apart 3D 8

MIB III 6.5/10 Josh Brolin was dead on as young Agent K though.

skijor 12-27-12 12:37 PM

Underworld: Awakening 3/10

KB is as hot as ever. But the UW series has fizzled.

BarracksSi 12-28-12 11:19 PM

Les MisÚrables - 9/10. Wow.

Agree with the wow but I give it a 10/10. Illustrates what movies can be.

Hobbit earlier this week gets a 6/10.

TwoFourOne 12-29-12 12:16 AM

Just saw Jack Reacher. It was pretty good for what it was, I'd give it an 8/10. A friend of mine thought the plot was too boring.

colorider 12-30-12 12:25 PM

Saw the Hobbit yesterday. I liked it but didn't love it 8/10. I felt like Spielberg or Disney corrupted P. Jackson in some of the scenes - felt too Indiana Jones-like. Bad IJ not good IJ

MangoPumpkin 01-03-13 07:53 AM

Silent Night (2012) - 2/10 Typical B Horror Movie

Looper - 8/10 I really liked it. Had enough action and drama for me.

Wrong Turn 5 - .5/10 Yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment.

Total Recall (2012) - 5/10 Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Pretty much how I saw it. It was a competent enough movie, and the acting was fairly solid. I was enjoying it fairly well until they banged the crap out of that vintage Chevelle - that was just gratuitous and offensive. Someone oughta be prosecuted for that. :)
