Indeed whiskey, your scale is a bit off.
Goes from 1 to 10. Not 1 to 100.

For the last movie I watched:

Zombie Apocalypse

3/10
Let's just say you suddenly appreciate The Walking Dead a lot more in every aspect, after watching this shit.
I only give it 2 more points because of poor Ving Rhames. Get your shit together dude :disgust:

i'm over the whole "zombie apocalypse" trope since i've started to meet people who ACTUALLY THINK IT WILL HAPPEN IN THE REAL WORLD. and I'm not just talking about fuckwit survivalists on Discovery's "Doomsday Bunkers" tv show. i mean fairly normal alltags-idiots.

Yes in consideration and hindsight (a wonderful thing) I will re rate and I don't do this often to a 5-/10 :cry: :olo:

the brood 8/10
cronenberg's most solid and straight up sci-fi horror, fucking brilliant.

tintin 4/10
fun but sterile, and the animation is a little creepy.

the hidden 7/10
showing its age but still a great action/sci-fi movie. worth a watch if only for the awesome intro and a young claudia christian.

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


Doom is in many ways the opposite of War of the Worlds. where the latter appears to have all the ingredients of a good action/sci-fi movie, it somehow fails, and it isn't entirely clear why. conversely, Doom is a movie that should fail in every department (the Rock, stupid premise, recycled space marine ensemble-but-not-nearly-as-good-as-aliens, script cliches "gametime!", underemployed Dexter Fletcher, etc etc), and yet is strangely watchable in spite of itself

but no, lol no, not 8/10. i'd give it a 3, and most of that goes to the weirdo with the tequila and she-boys :olo:

Green Lantern - 3 / 10

Never liked the comics to begin with (green lantern's imagination sucks... he can make anything he can think of and he makes metal shields, guns, and big fists).

The film felt rush though. Acting sucked. There wasn't much explanation about anything just that "these dudes watch over the universe. There's one dude who's yellow and angry. He needs to die."

One part that irritated me was when some fish guy was about to explain where he's from and Hal knew everything about fish-man's world already because the ring grants him stupid amounts of knowledge. Yet he didnt know who the creators of the ring, sitting on some chairs near him, were. I get they had to do that so the audience not familiar with the comics could get an explanation but still. That was stupid.

7.5/10

Suitably bizarre, nicely shot, fucked up subject matter and elena anaya is an instant boner-inducer.


Just watched this. I really really liked it, suitably fucked up but not in an overly pretentious way. Really good performances and a nice fresh idea. I loved the Louise Bourgeois references throughout. I'd up that to 8/10

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

IMDB

I thought a brilliant movie and worth every ounce of an 8.5/10

Very entertaining movie :up:

Excellent cast and a great look into the India of today perhaps.
I do hope it is screened there.

Hunger Games - 4/10 - If you haven't read the book it will be shallow and boring. If you have read the book it will be shallow, boring, and disappointing. Casting is good, acting is great... after that things get tricky. Either the directing or editing was off. Maybe the screenplay? A few scenes are absolutely great and the rest of the film they really didn't know what to do without the book's first-person narrator and tried a few different solutions, few of which work well. Combine that with a string of decisions made to get a PG-13 movie in around 2:30 and the whole thing bricks. The tension, suspense, horror, and relationships that made the book good (again, mostly due to the strong voice and perspective of the narrator) are missing. Skip it in the theater and rent/netflicks it.

Would you believe I've never watched LOTR?

Yes, I've been watching the trilogy over the last 3 nights (bluray of course) and halfway through the final movie.
Don't know what scores to give them really, but I'm enjoying them.

i'll never forgive peter jackson for the idiotic dwarf tossing joke at Helm's Deep or the even more idiotic shot of Legolas surfing down a flight of stairs on a shield... not to mention the retarded scene of Legolas flipping all over an oliphant and then sliding down its trunk in RotK. should've left that stupid Saturday-morning-cartoon shit to George Lucas.

I agree. Still, I was entertained but kind of underwhelmed by Fellowship and Two Towers, but having just finished ROTK, I thought it was absolutely brilliant. 4 hours of goodness and didn't get bored once. Those epic battle scenes were stunning.

In Bruges - Pleasantly surprised. Great acting all round, genuinely funny and Ralph Fiennes doing East End hard. +Rascist Midget.

Robocop - Still a classic after all these years. Sure, some of the tech hasn't aged well (the biggest thing that sticks out in Eighties Sci Fi being CRT monitors), but the Robocop suit itself is a masterpiece of Sci Fi cinema design, and the movie is still wonderfully subversive. Someone should start giving Verhoeven massive amounts of money to make Sci FI again.

Battle Royale - Stunningly good. I think the last time I saw it was something like eight or nine years ago, possibly longer, but it's still fantastic. Sure, some of the kids play it a bit too melodramatic but it's not really lost its impact. I definitely need to see more Beat Takeshi movies. Recommendations?

and let's not forget the "ax stuck in his nervous system" line from the extended RotK :dork:

sonatine - if you haven't seen it/them already then watch violent cop and boiling point first. they don't have anything to do with each other, but he got technically better as a film-maker. his version of zatōichi is awesome.

boondock saints - 7/10
never gotten round to this one before, despite hearing it mentioned again and again. in a lot of ways it's a bog-standard vigilante action/comedy with a weak script - but plenty of tricks in the presentation, some good jokes and an entirely unhinged star turn by willem dafoe (and whoever played the italian guy with the long hair) make it a must see.

mothman prophecies - 3/10
donnie darko for old people, basically nothing happens.

21 Jump Street - 7/10 - actually really, really funny. funniest thing i've seen since Hangover, but if you didn't like that then you probably won't like this.

The Darkest Hour.
lol/awful
This laughably poor CGI in 2012? Really?
Plus the forced optimistic ending, actually implying sequel potential :olo:


Blindness.
Nice, original premisse.
Quite watchable.

Melancholia
Snore porn.

I know you're supposed to adore everything Lars von Trier decides to shit out, to make you look like an intellectual, but this is just an exercise in boredom.
Stars and revolves around Kirsten Dunst; Tries to make you care about all her apprehensions and confusedness, but you won't care about the silly bint.
Just smash the planets together, already.

Watch the first 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes dealing with the the actual planet collision, and save yourself some time.
The rest is just actors adding "I've been in a Von Trier"-flick to their resume.

Take Shelter 8/10

Man in rural somewhere USA sees visions of a terrible storm that rains a yellow, muddy rain that makes his beloved ones go crazy with bloodlust, so he decides to build a shelter for his family. One of those is he slowly going mental or is it for reals flicks, but done well.

Also went a bit mental with the annual cult film festival and ended up spending too much for a load of tickets for next week. I shall be seeing:

Madame X, Indonesian movie about a transvestite team of superheroes kicking the shit out of intolerant morons


The Raid, another Indonesian movie, this one about a SWAT team fighting a bunch of dopefiends in a building or something, supposed to be really good (and extremely violent)


Juan de los Muertos, first Cuban zombie movie ever! \0/


and Iron Sky and a bunch of other stuff too, yays.

I also rated "Take Shelter" 8/10 earlier in this thread.

Not so sure about your other exotic offerings, but I'll give them a try.

sherlock holmes 2: the something of something - 3/10
boring and not very sherlock holmesy. this version of holmes won't really start making sense until there's an animated series.

john carter - 1/10
giving it a slightly higher score than DB because i closed the window about halfway through, it's possible that it got a lot worse.

rolling thunder - 8/10
great revenge flick with a lot more flesh on its bones than any other hollywood movie in the same genre.

Iron Sky 7/10

Very funny :)
It's amazing what they did with what little budget they had, the effects are all properly done and there's some very well jokes. Would have been slightly better if they'd done some pre-story so to speak, maybe some scenes of a V2 rocket with a crazy scientist and the love child of Eva Braun and Adolf aboard escaping earth at the end of the war or someshit. Ah well, can't have it all.

There was an interview with one of the producers before it started; he said that Iron Sky had some trouble in several European countries appearing in cinema's, apparently it runs in about half of the countries and the other half is waiting to see what it does before they take the chance. Only reason i got to see it in the cinema was because of the film festival, it's not in Dutch theaters yet nor is there any indication it ever will be. That makes me sad :(

He also said that strangely enough it's a modest hit in Germany at the moment, don't quite know what to make of that... :smirk:

Sherlock Holmes 2:Whatever The Subtitle Is = 3/10 - This "reimagining" of the franchise is simply fucking horrible. They don't even remotely feel like Sherlock Holmes movies but instead more like an episode of the A-Team. Seriously....Micheal Bay could NOT do any worse. Fuck you Hollywood for ruining yet another IP.

Mission Impossible 4:Whatever The Subtitle Is = 6/10 - This is easily the best of the current "Mission Impossible" films with Tom Cruise. It's still fucking retarded, but better than the earlier shit.

The Grey = 7/10 - A good old fashioned horror/thriller. Points taken off for being so utterly predictable, though.

Underworld Awakening = 3/10 - Kate Beckinsale once again in a tight black outfit and she looks just as good today as she did in the first movie a decade ago. Decent action and production values but overall this franchise has been milked for all it's worth and has nothing left to offer. Another annoying thing about this franchise is that every single film ends in a cliffhanger. Please stop making these movies. Kthnx.
