Kickass-8/10-Far exceeded my expectations. It was very entertaining, but you have to go in with the right expectations. I think it's based off a graphic novel, it is not realistic at all, but it has some pretty cool action scenes. Definitely entertaining, not quite a "must-see."

Harry Potter 7 Part 1-7.5/10-I've read all the books (but forgotten a lot of the minor details). I did not love the ending as I feel it was a little abrupt. Having read the books, I appreciate the attention to detail and this movie probably paid the most attention to detail of all of them. All of the scenes were very well done (good acting and special effects), but I feel they could have crammed a little more into 2.5 hours. Obviously this is a must-see for the Harry Potter fanatics, and it is entertaining for others.

the fact that this one paid so much attention to detail is what made it suck. in the book there was quite a bit of time spent traveling around which did not translate well to the movie. there was a good hour to an hour and a half where NOTHING HAPPENED. pretty much everything between when they got the locket and when they finally destroyed it was a complete waste of time and was super boring. i mean that dance scene? srsly?

It's modern Hollywood, why are you surprised?. 90% of what's coming out now is unwatchable dumbed-down garbage. Also, there may not have been much happening, but I bet there was plenty of product placement. (This comment was bought to you by KFC and the Toshiba people.)

The Face Of Fu Manchu (1965) 5/10

Woah. Racist movie is racist.
If you can get past that, an interesting story.
Making a bad guy more threatening by actually letting them succeed isn't a bad idea.
Christopher Lee as always a no-nonsense "unstoppable" villain.
I missed the end of this, as I recorded it and it was on free tv - they were 20 minutes late (of course they were, I have no idea why free tv is being killed [sarcasm]).

Unintentional comedy:
They obviously ran out of Asian extras to be henchmen, and a couple of English extras look hilariously out of place mixed in with them.


Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade (1989) 2/10

Hugely lame.
You have Sean Connery, an acknowledged ass-kicker, playing a role where every time a baddie threatens him he looks pleadingly for help and DOESN'T THROW A PUNCH THROUGH THE ENTIRE MOVIE.
Then you have Harrison Ford, definitely nearing his use-by date, basically looking like a swashbuckling accountant. Hooray?
Then there is a bunch of religious hokum, some Nazis and a woman who is good or evil with every change of the weather.

This crap gets one point for having a half-interesting idea (treasure hunts chasing medieval or Norman clues are usually interesting), and one point for finding Forever Alone Guy at the end.

Avoid.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part I) - 7.5/10 - As a standalone movie this doesn't hold up as well as some of the others because of it being broken in half, but in the context of the series as a whole it's another solid installment. I appreciate them being so true to the book after everything that was left out of Half-Blood Prince, even if it means there's some filler (which I didn't really mind).
