Wanted: 7.7/10 Very entertaining.
The Dark Knight: 8.1/10 Might be a bit harsh because I had unreasonalby high expectations and it was a bit long, was a great movie nonetheless.
Million Dollar Baby: 7.5/10 Sad Ending.
Gran Torino: 8.5/10 Great movie.

Iron Man (9.5/10) Great overall movie. Good humor too

Yes Man (8.6/10) Funny but slow at times

No Country For Old Men - 9/10

I've seen it already a few times, but someone gave it to me for Christmas on Blu-ray which was kind of unnecessary given this film doesn't display the best audio facets of Blu-ray. At any rate, I reckon NCFOM is one of those polemic films in every facet. The film itself is probably an 8/10 but I think the impact makes it a 9. I enjoyed the slow burn pace probably more than some are willing to take as it really suits Anton Chigurh. Some folks hated the ending but I think it actually ended up in the most ideal way. By film's end, the underlying themes of destiny and luck are wrapped up nicely, albeit in a subtle and jerking fashion. The last 15-20 minutes or so, which some people think seem disjointed, really completes it, I'd say.

Seven Pounds- 8.5/10...Will Smith did an excellent job in grabbing my emotions and making me care about his character in this movie. Very depressing for the last 20 or so minutes, but im a man and can admit i shed a tear or two during that time. This movie`s been getting bad reviews from critics so my opinion may be in the minority, but i thought it was well worth seeing.

Michael Clayton- 8.5/10...Same rating as Seven Pounds.I thought this was very good and more "well done" than Seven Pounds but i wasnt quite as emotionally interested in it. (Not to say that i wasnt, just not at the level of the former.)

i hated NCFOM... really slow with a bunch of pointless scenes and pointless dialogue that did nothing to advance the plot. honestly, i didn't even finish it because it was just that boring. i think it's one of those movies that people try to make seem deep, when in reality it just sucked.

its not supposed to be deep.
it is supposed to show the other side of things, and people.
the best way to watch it is to go into it not knowing anything about it.

im kind of with you. i didnt think it "sucked", but i didnt really see the hype. i watched this with my girlfriend and she seemed to really like it, and i was pretty bored throughout. it was pretty good at some points, but others just were too slow (and i like a long, deep, in depth movie personally).

Well I also really enjoyed NCFOM, and I felt it had the perfect ending. It didn't feel very slow to me at all, either.

Oh my gawd I actually went to the movies :-o (shock horror)


Quantum Of Solace - 4/10

Not my favourite.
Too shoot-em-uppy for my liking. Also, they seemed to have dumbed down Bond - he is killing people who could have valuable information now, as opposed to mostly hired goons.
Daniel Craig = OK as Bond, but uses his gun way way more then I'm used to.

They need to do better next time.

I don't think the scenes, dialogue, and every little nuance was pointless, even if it's made to seem that way. I can understand NCFOM isn't for everybody given that the film is like a slow-acting toxin where by the end, you don't know if it's ever kicked in until you start to realize the ending really made the useless scenes actually significant. I actually don't think the film's themes are too deep, but the way it's presented makes it feel deep.
