The director Duncan Jones is a nice guy too. He's a complete net nerd, always on twitter posting interesting stuff. You can tell he spent all his daddies pocket money growing up, living in a complete geek nirvana of toys and video games. He even made a thread on IMDB after Moon came out, thanking everyone for watching it.

Source Code is pretty good too, though it should have ended on that freeze frame. Those who have seen it will know what i'm talking about.

I used to hate Sam Rockwell as an actor, and by my own arrogance, as a person, so I was going into this movie already totally disappointed.
Well, long story short , his performance in this instantly changed my mind about him...now that's a pretty strong performance :up:

I loved him in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and thought he was funny as hell in Hitchhiker's Guide. I'll have to check out Moon...

Rockwell was awesome in The Green Mile and scene-stealing hilarious in Galaxy Quest.

drive - 6/10
slow-paced stylish chick flick with gay music and occasional extreme violence. needed more driving.

underworld whatever the subtitle is - 2/10
kate beckinsdale is nice to look at, entirely forgettable otherwise.

I'm watching The Wire. Jeez and I thought Terminator: SC Chronicles had glacial pacing. This is something else. Does get good though towards the end of the series. Just started on season 2, which is more comfortable now the main characters are familiar.

"get your dick out of my computer!" :olo:

Super = 6/10 - Surprisingly violent, even for a black comedy. lol Ellen Page is a crazy rapist.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo = 5/10 - Meh. Another film with another rape scene. I guess screenwriters and directors are bored these days.

The Grey: 7/10 - Not the most original movie ever, but very compelling and genuinely frightening. I almost had a few heart attacks whenever the dogs came out, sometimes it was a little predictable though.

Take Shelter: 8/10

Michael Shannon plays the lead.
You know him as the awkward, self loathing Agent Van Alden in Boardwalk Empire.
That's how I came across this movie in the first place; by imdb-ing him.

Deals with one of my favorite movie subjects: insanity, or rather the ambivalence about whether someone is indeed insane, or if their conceptions are in fact based on reality.
(Jacob's Ladder, Black Swan, American Psycho, etc.)

The movie is pretty long and slow, and some will find it boring, maybe.
Not me, though. Michael Shannon's performance is excellent, and with BE and this, he's definitely one of my fave actors.

Yeah, totally. TOO BAD IT'S AN ADAPTATION OF A NOVEL. the whole thing is about "men who hate women." what were they supposed to do, leave out the parts where the men commit acts of hatred toward women to be more original? :tard:

Incendies 8/10

French film (or is it Canadian) about two siblings each receiving a letter from their departed mother, telling one to find their father that they never knew, the other to find their brother they never knew they had. The mindfuck at the end of the film is well worth it, the fact that you slowly see it coming only adds to the feeling of 'oh god no!'. Well worth seeing :up:

Spoiler? Or would it not affect a virgin viewing of this film?

Nah, i feel i phrased that quite spoiler-free. The fact that something big is coming is clear from the very start... but i shall not say what it is exactly!

Shame 6/10

About a sex addict that is struggling with personal relationships with people. It didn't really work though. Fassbinder is a really good actor and it clearly wasn't his fault the whole thing fell a bit flat, i blame the director for making certain choices.

On a sidenote, I've never really understood sex addiction to be a problem in the sense that a substance or a gambling addiction is a problem. These people often work hard at their fake jobs and tans because it really helps to have this aura of successfulness if you're going to sleep with a lot of people. Seems like one of the better addictions to have to be honest, it's hardly destructive...

Hanna - 4/10 - honestly, it's a shitty movie. there's barely a plot and some highly questionable acting and a pitifully fake southern accent from Cate Blanchett. about 50% of the movie devolves into Chemical Brothers videos of the girl running around. if you want a little girl flipping out like a ninja, just watch Kick-Ass again.

i realise its a cliche to say that the book is better, but it really is.
the movie only covers the first three chapters or so and completely ignores the themes of the book.
for instance, you'd never know why the story is considered "neverending" from watching the movie.

what im saying is, read the book. it's awesome.

I'm sure the book is great, but from the movie I think I can assume it is a neverending story because the human imagination is neverending...

hint: you're wrong

@menkent, true it starts a bit slow. what I like about it is that it starts out as some kid's fantasy coming true but quickly spirals into a story about heroes corrupted by power, depression and even suicidal tendencies.
not bad for something disguised as a children's book :)

Yes I did :!:

I watched Doom last night.

It was as I totally expected of course.
Entertaining for a FPS game player I suppose.

Enjoyable for me and enough then 8/10
