What a turd. First bad sign was Will Ferrell & Adam McKay being producers. Went downhill from there.

Best part was that we borrowed DVD from library, which means I only wasted my time.


I saw this on Netflix over the w/e. I didn't think it was that bad. Gemma Arterton and the Troll had some real chemistry going on there, for one thing. Actually, that may've been the only thing... but anyway, I thought it was funny. Maybe a 5/10.

Saw "Her" in the theater Saturday. That was a movie I'd give an 8.5. Kristen Wiig has a tiny, but brutally funny part. Not necessarily a big screen movie, but some great ideas at work.

I liked it. Bryan Cranston's character is pretty spooky. It's definitely worth a rental.

"Dumbo"

a classic disney movie from 1941
holds up very well
notable points include

the incredibly creepy psychadelic hallucination scene
which pre dates the psychadelics trend in pop culture by 25 years

the now politically incorrect portrayal of 'black' crows

and the depiction of the cruelty with which animals were treated
without a second thought
in the name of entertainment
and profit

all in all
a great film
it held my eight year olds attention until the very end
and when i told him the movie was 73 years old
he didnt believe me

10/10

are you giving it a negative 9?

MangoPumpkin 01-22-14 11:00 AM

True Detective on HBO with Woody Harrelson & Matthew McConaughey 10/10 Two episodes in and I think it's going to be great.

A true story and a real horror show. Southern white males might not give it such a high rating as I did.

Well I'm not a southern (American) white male but just been to see it and was rather disappointed with it. Acting was good but I found some of the editing/screenplay confusing and strange.

7.5/10

Good call. I hadn't remembered it being so short. FWIW, I thought the crows came off pretty favorably compared to the Italian Ringmaster or the clowns from "Joisey."

I missed Gravity at the theater.... but caught it at the "cheap theater" (used to be called the dollar theater). I think 3 bucks to see Gravity on a big screen.... was just about the right price. The movie was beautifully filmed, and well acted..... it just wasn't well written.

ooga-booga 01-24-14 09:35 PM

a few in the last day...

black dynamite-8.5

tombstone-8.5

clerks-8/8.5. 1st time watching. fave part was the dissertation about the destruction of the death star in return of the jedi being unfair because it undoubtedly involved innocent independent
contractors since it was still under construction (with the empire being busy with law enforcement and whatnot).

planet of the apes (original 1968 charlton heston version)-8 for the movie but a 9 for the scenery. big segments of the film shot in the glen canyon/lake powell area as well as the malibu/zuma
beaches and nearby santa monica mountains. originally planned on riding the santa monicas today but wasn't feeling the 4:30am wake up call. this was a semi-satisfying
substitute. and linda harrison...wow.

Watched Ken Burns' documentary, The Dust Bowl.

I would not miss it.

I agree... not much of a story to talk about. The film I think was shot mostly for its visual appeal, to be watched on a big screen theater. I don't understand why the best pic nomination, including Sandra Bullock's.

I watched a dvd screener of this movie at home on our 'big screen' tv so I didn't feel the 'wow'. In fact, I was rather disappointed overall, also due to technical inaccuracies in many shots.

Went to see Nebraska this week. It was darkly funny in a way that appeals to me. Alexander Payne makes good movies. 8/10.

I haven't read any of the books so I don't know enough to be disappointed or not. Thought the first one was okay.

as a elementary teacher i felt it was my duty :lol:. they were good clean easy fun, and since i like mythology i could get into it. lets just say the entire conflict of the series - the most important story arc and the entire point of the books was changed, and not included in the first movie. (that being that the titans are rising again and it was actually them who stole zeus' bolt and blamed it on percy - and luke was allied with the titans, not just being a butthurt demi-god)

I actually saw it on a plane ride from Dallas to San Francisco. I had never heard of it, and had no idea what to make of it.
Can't say I liked it. But I've seen a lot worse. I'm glad I didn't go to a theater and pay for it.

Well there you go, I hate it now.:lol: My son has a few of the books so maybe I'll take a peek now.

Watching Riddick tomorrow (more my kinda movie,really)

Saw I, Frankenstein at the lady's insistence. 3/10, and that's generous. The plot framework was a slightly modified version of Underworld (there's a supernatural war going on that humans don't know about! The good guys are going to get overwhelmed! Nonpartisan special man must help!), which I guess makes sense since they're made by the same guy. Overall, full of cliche lines and action sequences. Wouldn't spend money on it.
