Django- 9/10

Pretty awesome movie. Funny, intense, bloody. Awesome acting, great dialogue. Loses a point because it's crazy long but there weren't really any boring parts.

HITCHCOCK.... 6 of 10

kinda witty in spots but Anthony Hopkins "impersonation" of Hitch was creepy...his shark eyes were off putting...of course, the real Hitchcock was a creep w/a serious
addiction to icy blondes
nice job, as usual, by Helen Mirren

ALSO, revisited MIDNIGHT COWBOY ...9 of 10...a must see for all interested in character development and the city as a character..Jon Voight in his 2nd role is outstanding and you can't help but look at his mouth and see Angelina

I thought Skyfall blew big time. It was a snorefest for most of the movie. 6/10 and even that might be a bit generous.

Also saw Cloud Atlas and although a bit long, it was a terrific movie watching experience. 8/10. Seeing Hugh Grant play all those villains was different and unexpected.

That's a big call, could you explain more?
Which Bond movies would you say are good ones?

Well Aussie, men of my ilk tend to make big calls. :-D

Its not a big call really, just my opinion. Allow myself to explain...myself: The movie wasnt exciting to me because I was never in a position of wanting to see what might happen next or be stunned by what eventually did happen. Mundane fights(hands/guns), M was a downer throughout(reminds me of the daughter from Homeland), and no real fun gadgets. i think Craig makes for an awesome 007 but the last 2 movies have been dull.

As for my favorite Bond movies: Goldeneye and Casino Royale.

Pitch Perfect - 6/10 - It felt like a really long episode of Glee, which is reasonable, because when I saw the preview I thought, hey look, they made a Glee movie. It had it's funny moments and is worth seeing for free. I don't know why everybody thinks Rebel Wilson is so hysterical. Aside from making fun of herself for being fat, there's not much else there comically speaking. It's worth seeing for free.

This is 40 - 4/10 - I watched like the first hour of it, and then had to run out. It wasn't good enough for me to continue watching when I got back home. It could've gotten better and funnier after the first hour, but probably not. Judd Apatow's kids aren't as cute as they were when they were in Knocked Up.

As an aside, Jonah Hill put all his weight back on in his neck region, best as I can tell from the preview I saw for End of the World, or whatever it's called.

Django Unchained - 7.5/10

A sloppy, disjointed mess of a film, but it was very entertaining throughout and lived up to expectations. The last half-hour of the movie hurt the rating, all in all, and the characters seemed underdeveloped. Outside of that, a satisfying Tarantino film. Waltz steals the show, even though it seems like he's playing a re-hashed, more benevolent version of Hans Landa. DiCaprio's Calvin Candie is delightfully sinister, although I wish he had more screen time. It has more action scenes than the other historical Tarantino revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds had, which sates any action aficionado. (Comparing Django with Basterds, Basterds was a better film in general.)

I disagree. I thought that it was well paced and the scenes that Waltz was in was some of the best acting ever in cinematic history. The scene in the basement of the bar was also pretty climactic. As for Django, havent seen it yet but am pessimistic that it will come close to being as good or epic as Once Upon A Time In The West, A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, or The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

ZeroDArkThirty was boring as all hell too.

That movie was confused on what it was. It was really funny when they were trying to make fun of Glee and awful when they were trying to be Glee.
