District 9 - 8.5/10

Really good and quite a bit different from typical action movies. Strongly recommend seeing it in theatres.

Doubtvery well acted, Phillip Seymour Hoffman is one of the best in the biz. i was never really bored and i liked that the whole movie is kind of ambiguous about what may/may not have happended
8/10

Seen a few since my last visit...

Inglorious Basterds: Hilarious, well done, awesome, loved it. Brad Pitt is an absolute riot.

Adam: Movie about this guy who has Asperger's syndrome and falls in love with a woman in his apartment building. I'd call it a chick flick but a tolerable one because the story was original and not too boring. Some of the writing was pretty crappy and the acting was eh at some points as well though. I'd call it a good date movie though; your girlfriend will like it and you'll be able to tolerate it.

Donnie Darko: Really good and really confusing. I'll probably watch it again to try to understand it.

9 7/10

really cool concept, great animation, and some sweet action scenes. I just wish the story was more fleshed out- the plot structure was kinda thin... although by the end just enough is explained. It's possible a future sequel could/would reveal more information.

2/10. This movie looked like it could be good, but it was interspersed with incredibly long parts with nothing going on, mediocre dialogue and the last 10 minutes which included stuff that defy the laws of life (best way to say it without spoiling anything).

Don't see it and if you go into Blockbuster and see it on the shelf, hide it behind other stuff to save someone else a waste of time.


finally got around to seeing this...i agree it was a little slow in spots but also very tense...i didnt really have a problem with them breaking the 4th wall, i thought it added some originality instead of just having another cliche ending. i also like how it's shot with no background music or anything, it's a very realistic portrayal of psycopathery

Those long breaks in conversation or action of any kind didn't kill you? I was sitting there watching the wife tied up or whatever in the living room by herself, for like 10 minutes. Wasn't it 10 minutes? It was crazy!

I didn't mind the 4th wall thing too much as I can see some of the artistic stuff in that, but those long pauses and the ending...no.

streamed American Werewolf in Paris from Netflix... 2/10. Didn't even finish it.

Werewolves scare the pejebus out of me. They don't have The Howling for stream unfortunately. The CGI dogs in this flick look like they're designed to look fake. Utter, utter fail on all levels.

Paris is the crappy sequel right...London is the original? i know for it's time it had some amazing makeup work but i'm sure it's cheesey now

also...i saw Adventureland...pretty good, was expecting it to be more of a comedy, but it was still pretty good

We liked Adventureland a lot, if I actually ratted movies I'd probably give it a 7 too. :-?

American Werewolf in London was one of my favorite "scary movies" growing up. I remember thinking it looked so real, but yeah it would probably look a bit cheesy now.
