Pandorum - 8.5/10 - Pretty cool movie, has some awesome elements to it (including a female lead with fantastic, er, "acting credentials"), including a shocking double plot twist at the end. I mean, it was like BOOM PLOT TWIST and when you're reeling it's like BOOM ANOTHER PLOT TWIST. Special effects are pretty weak but whatever who gives a damn.

District 9 - 8.5/10 - Overall I really enjoyed it. My only complaint is the action during the last act. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I just got a little bored with that. I think I've just become bored by most action sequences in general though, so I can't blame this movie in particular too much for it. I really liked the story though.

The Killing (1956), 9.5/10- Excellent crime/caper film that I would recommend to anyone. The plot is interesting, the characters are memorable....there's really nothing bad to say about it.

Enter the Dragon 3/10
I had fond memories of this movie but I saw it again last night and it really is not a good movie. The bad guys are horrible and the faces that Bruce pulls when he is fighting are really very funny. Ultra low budget. I wish that I hadn't watched it again and ruined the good memories that I had of it.

Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure 7/10
Plenty of laughs and life lessons. A must see if you have a little girl.

Very surprised this movie is so highly regarded. Only redeeming qualities I found were the non-speaking antagonist, relationship/scene with his mother, and if this movie is accurate, the depiction of prison camps is interesting. I never knew they existed.



What we have here, is a failure to appreciate.

Ha. Definitely. Cool Hand Luke is one of a very small handful of movies I actually own. Great film.

I saw The Invention of Lying yesterday. Not worth the $5 or the 1 1/2 of my time. It had a couple of chuckle-worthy parts, but even most of them were obvious and predictable. A good concept with poor execution. 5/10.


i liked it better than Art (although i fell asleep for an indeterminate time in the middle of the movie) but agree the concept was better than the execution...i think it would have been better suited as an extended sketch comedy bit or something
7/10

Totally agree. I really wanted to like the movie too. When I first heard about it I was very interested, then I saw the trailer and was a little turned off, still I was intrigued enough to give it a go. It was a fresh idea that could have been a home run but they totally whiffed.

The Hurt Locker - 7.5/10 - It was good, but not great. It was cool to see a movie about a war still going on, rather than one in the history books, but I found it a little repetitive and not much changed from situation to situation. Of the 7 out of 10 best picture noms that I've seen, Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, and Up in the Air all deserve to win ahead of this one, IMO.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 8.5/10
-Very well done, good job by the actors, very interesting concept and well-written. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it did not drag on, it was not boring. Jim Carrey plays a serious role very well, I was impressed. I'd recommend it ;-D

I really liked Enter the Dragon as well. Most kung fu films don't tell the best story, but I still enjoy it nonetheless. Fist of Fury (The Chinese Connection) was Bruce Lee's best film, IMO, and Fist of Legend starring Jet Li was a worthy remake (and in some ways it was better, as it did away with the over-the-top Chinese/Japanese prejudice).
