Amazinz wrote:Smokin Aces was awful IMHO. Absolutely no substance, no cohesive plot and juvenile dialogue. The movie was just an exercise in style which may have been OK if it wasn't simply mimicking the styles of Tony Scott and Tarantino.


I DVR'd it because it seemed like a brainless violent action flick. Watched the first 20 minutes and got bored so I just erased it.

Memento: 7.5/10

Very solid. Interesting choice in presenting the movie the way it was - but it put you right in the shoes of the main character.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.

Awesome movie. And as a bonus, Marisa Tomei is naked in 50% of her scenes.

Mr. Woodcock - 5/10
I was expecting a lot more from a Billy Bob comedy. Some parts were hilarious (putting his foot on the kid's back while he did push-ups) but overall the plot kinda sucked. I was disappointed.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry - 5/10
Similar to Mr. Woodcock in that it didn't meet expectations. Some funny parts, but overall it was very forgettable.

Gone Baby Gone.

Amazing. 3 1/2 stars. Though Casey Affleck in no way is convincing as a tough guy.

The Big Lebowski - 8/10 - wow what a strange movie. I think I need to watch it again just so that I understand how all the characters tie in with the story. It was very funny but in a weird way. Fargo and NCFOM type of humor. Can't believe it took me so long to watch it for the first time but it was definitely enjoyable.

I like BBT more as a serious actor than a comedian although Bad Santa was very funny to me. BBT has been in a lot of very good movies (Sling Blade, Monster's Ball, Love Actually, Simple Plan, etc.) IMHO.
