Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I just re-watched 'Just One of the Guys' for the umpteenth time. It's a classic and one of my all-time favorite comedies. Buddy nearly ranks up there with Walter from 'The Big Lebowski' as one of my favorite characters ever. No matter how many times I've seen it, the scene where he answers the phone and says "Yo, scumball. Suck yourself! Eat me!" then turns to his sister and says "mom says 'hi'" kills me every time.

10/10

Cool Hand Luke- 9/10

Curious Case of Benjamin Button- 8/10 Brad Pitt was excellent, and its fascinating to see how he ages( or doesnt age) throughout the film...One major negative was that i felt Brad Pitt`s female counterpart didnt do a good jobat all. His love interest could have been casted much better. Still a good movie too see thought because Pitt was great.

Gran Torino - 8/10

Has its funny points, has its low points, and has its sad points.
Overall a pretty good movie, as I can see all the Oscar buzz.

the plot of this movie seems terrible and unlikely. i think clint eastwood may be one of my least favorite actors on the surface. i cant say ive seen many of his movies, but just seeing him yell at mexicans standing on his lawn makes me cringe.

You should probably see the movie since they are not of Mexican descent...

Do not Judge a book by its cover. Or a movie by its trailer. :-t

If you dont like Clint than I understand why you wouldnt want to see it.
But the understanding of the story it is worth a viewing.

I personally like Clint Eastwood, I think he was the original badass, ala before Chuck Norris.

Really, here's the thing about Slumdog Millionaire: it wasn't a good movie. It was a classic example of a film that accidentally hit an impressive peak in the first 45 minutes and then fell victim to a director who wasn't good enough to take the story anywhere interesting. The culture of Bombay is ridiculously fascinating and provides more than ample material to write a compelling story (check out Maximum City), which seemed inevitable in the first part of the movie. Then suddenly we get a hokey love story with an anticlimactic, saccharine ending, and a really lame game show plot device, complete with almost-missed cell phone calls and the ridiculous and offensively simplistic death of his brother. That movie gets the bozack. It seemed like a love story written by a 14-year-old who has never been kissed. The plot was great until it stopped making sense and spiralled into the Legend of Zelda. The acting was great until all the characters became grownups, at which point the movie became an EXTREME music video. It's just not that good a movie and I don't understand why it got all this acclaim. I think all the critics I heard raving about it stopped watching after 75 minutes.


Just saw the movie and instead of writing a review, thought I would just agree w/ Art. I'm not sure I'd be as harsh over all, but the "love story" really ruined it for me to be honest. I felt they did a terrible job showing any connection at all, that the audience could even care about the two is a bit beyond me. He's going to all these lengths to find her etc., but I felt so emotionally detached and not really caring at all what would happen.
