Inception - 9/10
I think the ending, while great for discussion, takes a little away from the movie. Probably the best movie I've seen in the theater since the first Matrix.

Megamind 7/10
Good fun. Evil mastermind turns out to have a heart of gold.

Despicable Me 8/10
Evil mastermind turns out to have a heart of gold. Steve Carrel > Will Farrel. A little more for the adults in this one and a few more cute moments for the kids.

The Prestige - 6.5/10

Finally got the chance to see this recently and it made for interesting viewing. That said, I do think it's some distance away from Christopher Nolan's best. Although I found the flow of the movie to be a bit disjointed in the first half hour or so, the storytelling method is pretty ingenious; the film flows exactly like an elaborate magic trick would.

I found the acting to be more one-dimensional than I was hoping for and was more disappointed in Christian Bale's performance than anything. Even more so than Scarlett Johansson's performance and a poor attempt at a working-class London accent. I would've expected a more well-nuanced, complex character than what Bale portrayed, especially in light of the final twist. I didn't think the two big reveals at the end were all too surprising. You either had to think of the most ridiculous thing to happen (otherwise plausible in fantasy land) or the most reasonable thing and you got both. What's more important is, the film does a good job of lulling the viewer to sleep before the revelations and it succeeds there. The film sets the tone that you'd have to suspend your disbelief a bit, especially from the opening scene, which made the ridiculous revelation easier to accept. Still, it feels the sci-fi bit thrown in is lazy (I've yet to read the book though).

Good film, but nowhere near a somewhat similar film of Nolan's, Memento, in delivering a near-flawless film.

Black Swan - 7/10
Darren Aronofsky's latest film is about a severely emotionally repressed ballerina who progressively 'loses it' as she preps for the lead role in Swan Lake. I'm a big fan of his films (haven't seen The Fountain yet tho) and this one does not disappoint. The ending was a bit unclear and depending on what you think happens; it stretches beyond believable unless you view the ending as metaphorical and not literal. I would also have liked to have seen more screen time and development of the play director and Nina's mother, but it was all-around a pretty good flick.

127 hours - 8/10

Thought this was a good one, basically Franco alone for the entire movie but it was about 90 minutes long, just right for a movie like this, not dragging on forever like Cast Away. It'll probably get the oscar noms based on the director.

Winter's Bone - 8/10

It looks great, feels authentic, and the acting is very good. One of the better films of 2010 IMO. Definitely worth seeing.

Lennon Naked: 5/10

Tough one to watch. It doesn't try to mask the fact that John was quite the prick to almost everyone. But, maybe they could have shown just a little bit of kindness? For all the demons he had, I can't imagine that he spent every waking moment making other people's lives miserable.
