  • I watched two movies at the movie theater tonight.

    The Lion King 3D (1994, Roger Allers) 5/5
    image
    When I was only 4 years old, I watched my first movie at a movie theater. Now, 17 years later, I had the opportunity to watch it again on the big screen. I would never imagine, that first time at the movies, Filmmaking would be my passion and my career. I'm just speechless about The Lion King 3D. The movie endend, the credits finished rolling, the lights were up... And everyone just stood there, looking at the white big screen.


    Apollo 18 (2011, Gonzalo López-Gallego) 2/5
    image
    I usually do appreciate mockumentaries and lost-footage horror movies. I enjoy the idea that showing less is more. But I think we all have to agree that the genre is getting supersaturated. There's absolutely nothing new over here, despite the environment. Just a copy + paste of sequences from other movies of the genre. It can be well produced, but Apollo 18 is totally unimaginative, uninventive and bland. Dispensable.

    A monumental achievement. Filled
    with beauty, power, and emotion-
    "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
    works as a PERFECT prequel to this
    iconic franchise.

    I've been torrenting a lot of films lately.. just so I can have long-distance movie nights with my friend. She lives in Arizona, and we get the same copies of films and sync it, so we can watch it over the phone, or chat. :-P

    We've seen The Kingdom, Cypher, Sunshine, Deathly Hallows (both parts, and this was over the PHONE because we LOVE Harry Potter), The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Shutter Island, The Fifth Element, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Stargate, and a lot more which I can't remember right now.

    OH, but I just saw The Butterfly Effect, and I LOVED it. I've heard the sequels are bad though. Has anyone seen the sequels?

    EDIT: Ok.. damn, I didn't review anything.. -_-

  • Cowboys & Aliens (2011, Jon Favreau) 2.5/5

    There's a line/phrase during the movie that describes it well: "The intentions were good". It's a shame that the movie is a mess, though. Specially the script.

    ENVY

    Had a great story, very few laughs (almost all the laughs are in the beginning)

    It felt badly directed though.

    6.5/10

    The ending of Knowing sucked.
  • Pensieve SeekerPensieve Seeker Posts: 2,916 ✭✭✭✭
    I saw Knowing today and give it a 6/10 score. It was an alright way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, but I don't think I'd ever rent it again.

    ''102 Minute That Changed America''
    9.5/10
    Emotional and interesting documentary composed of amateur film from the 9/11 New York Attacks. The videos and the noises really were incredible as well as sad. I shed many tears.

    I think a lot of people didn't like it because it was so different. But it was great. It was really emotional, sans Nick Cage's awful crying. The embrace with the family silently as the solar flare destroyed earth, and the awe-inspiring new planet with the religious connections: angels, Ezekiel's wheel, rabbits, dressed in white, giant tree, etc. Really visionary stuff.

    THOR - 90%
    --------------------------------------------
    image

    After watching this film
    multiple times all I can
    say is this "THOR is a
    GROWER".

    With this AMAZING cast
    the film carries a unique
    vibe that distinguishes from
    other Superhero productions.

    During my third viewing I
    noticed how spectacular
    the art-design truly is,
    and the amazing structure
    that holds the film together.

    Changing from Asgard to
    Earth so frequently could
    have been a total disaster-
    but Mr. "Gilderoy Lockhart"
    did a hell of a job executing
    it. BRAVO.

    As a closing note I want to say this:
    Thor has got heart, emotion,
    action, spectacular visuals, and
    great humor- making it one of
    my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITES
    "Superhero Films" of all time!

    After not having seen it for quite a few years, I decided to rent out Splash last night-- a charming comedy that's still enjoyable as ever with Tom Hanks, Darryl Hannah, Eugene Levy, and the late, great John Candy.

    8.5/10

    This is just a personal thing, but I was tired with biblical endings. They just became overly repetitive that it became annoying.

    THE EAGLE

    The Eagle is about a commander named Marcus and he is put on honorable discharge. He is granted a slave named Esca. Both of them go on a journey to where a stolen metal eagle is which signifies their Rome. They need to bring it back to the rightful place. But they are captured and Esca says Marcus is his slave. This is where i'll stop from giving spoilers but the ending is awesome.


    Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell are in this movie. I don't really like Channing Tatums acting in other movies but he was so good in this. Jamie Bell played Esca and he really convinced me of his role and made me really hate him. The film has amazing music that are like strings but just a few bars of uncomfort. The Eagle is action packed and I reccomend this movie to everyone.

    8/10

    I now love the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. I love the innocence of Anakin in TPM and how he completely loses it all in RotS. I'd rank RoTs as my favorite Star Wars movie.

    Yeah, same. I'd say ROTS is my favorite too. The overall plot and filmaking of it made it an amazing movie. A very nice close to the saga.

    Order 66 is perhaps the best moment in the entire series.

    2012: 6/10 (rewatch)

    This film could've been so good had the main family storyline not have been in it. Instead, it's forced to become a guilty pleasure popcorn flick with horrible, laughable dialogue. Had the main family been cut out, it could've been given room to grow and breathe as a struggling epic about humans fighting for their lives. But instead, no. I still enjoy it, although the main family characters annoy the hell out of me, but the VFX are incredible and other than the main family, the acting is solid, so it's a nice popcorn guilty pleasure. I love how it is so over the top.

    My god, what an amazing film. The cinematography is
    phenomenal and so is Clive Owens performance. Alfonso
    Cuaron wrote and directed the hell out of this film. To
    think this was a loosely adapted film.

    P.S - If only he directed the series.

    The Beaver - 3/5

    - Story about Mel Gibson is depressed(by illness) so in the beginning he tries to choke himself but he doesn't succeed, but he finds this Beaver Puppet, it's a bit funny actually, and he isn't as depressed when he's holding the puppet in his hand, so it starts to affect his family, and the acting is pretty great, and it's a bit of tragic story, really. It is also pretty emotional, I think it's a pretty good film to pick up from a movie store. Except, I believe somebody has told me The Beaver gives Mel Gibson a....ehhhh...(blowjob). And I never saw it in the movie, maybe I missed it. :/

    The Lion King in 3D - 5/5

    OH MY GOD.
    I don't usually like 3D, but this was absolutely breathtaking. Everything was perfect. I just really wish they would have used the old 90s Disney logo instead of the new crappy one.

    OK so i just got from seeing an ADVANCE SCREENING of MONEYBALL!!! It was a really well made film. Great acting and chemistry between Brad and Jonah, amazing camera shots, an interesting story and really good dialogue. I recommend you see it!! 8/10. WAIT!!! The best part was that they showed us an exclusive 8 minute sneak peek of...The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo!!!! OMG!!! I was freaking out!! The movie looks incredible, and the trailer spoiled nothing even though it was really long. At the end everyone just said WOW. It looked intense. I also got a freee Hunger Games poster :D Great Night and if you have an questions don't be afraid to ask :) i will remeber what i can.

    Ok so it's about the GM of the Oakland athletics who's team doesn't have a lot of money for good players. After he loses 3 of the best players he finds a guy(Hill) who majored in economics. They used his theory to change the game. Pay less money and earn good players that were underrated.

  • Final Destination 5 (Steve Quale, 2011) 3/5
    image
    First of all, I must confess that I'm a huge fan of the series. I've always thought that watching stereotyped characters dying in the most bizarre ways is funny and entertaining. Unfortunately, the 4th one was a huge let down and disappointment because we missed one of the best qualities of the movies: its creativity. I admit that I had low expectations about this one but... I was surprised. They brought the exaggeration and the absurdity back, and now with real and cool 3D effects (another thing that the 4th one didn't have). It's true that it gets kind of stupid and silly with the new type o twist. But the essence is there. And, I'm glad that I had an freakin entertaining time watching it :D

    Never Let Me Go - 89%

    Brilliant direction, amazing performances, beautiful visuals and score
    make "Never Let Me Go" fall into the "must-watch" category. My only
    complaint would be that the film ends kind of abruptly.

    GO WATCH THIS FILM NOW!
    (Bring some tissues, though)
