I watched Total Recall yesterday.
I loved it, it was amazing. Kate Beckinsale and all, god, so hawt.
Though I'll only give it a 6.5/10.

and then I watched Taxi Driver for the first time. Let’s just say it now ranks among the best films I have ever seen. 4/4.
Those were all the films I have seen since I posted last :P yep. I am a very busy man.
Rise of the Guardians - 8/10.
I actually enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I was going to. The art direction was really amazing and it's one of the better looking movies I've seen. Great quality animation. The characters were all really enjoyable, and though there were some cheesy moments, for the most part it didn't feel like another dumb kids' movie. It felt more than worth my time. I kind of wish I had seen it in 3D because of how nice it looked, so I might go back!
10/10/ Fantastic movie. Go watch it if you haven't.
Paranormal Activity 3, 7/10. Must've been a new addition to Netflix because I don't remember seeing it before. Looks like the odd entries in the PA series are the good ones. The demon was much more malicious and present in this flick compared to #2 and #4. #3 seems to be the worst in the "we have to make up as many stupid excuses to have characters carry a camera around at all times," than any other entry in the series, though. Especially since it's set in the late 80's and the cameras they're using aren't little handicams, but giant 20-pound monsters with 6-hour tape lives.
The Dark Knight Rises.
Honestly I'm going to give it 10/10 mostly because I'm a sucker for super hero movies. I've yet to see one I didn't like, don't think it's even possible! And this was a great movie.
I was a little disappointed with the ending implying JGL is going to become either Batman or Nightwing, but he's yet to even be Robin. There are rumours he will be in the Justice League movie as batman. Which doesn't make sense. I believe in the comics he did pretend to be batman for a while, after he became Night Wing, but he's supposed to be Robin first, then Night Wing. Not jump straight into being batman
Anyway, besides that whole thing, loved the movie.
Dark night rises - One of the most spectacular movies ever made, Amazing filming, production, sets, acting. Everything just top Notch, Just like that last 2 and the Film Incuption, Its just a same they are so mind mumbingly and Arse achingly Boring.. 4/10 --
Ted, -should have been more riskier and naughtier, But it played it a little to safe for the cinema, shame 5/10
I liked it. No, I didn't watched the original one. Tbh, I was told not to because the remake would feel like shit. I have no idea why, but I'm not really interested in watching the original one.
I honestly fail to see why the remake is bad. Story is fairly simple and good, acting is nice, overall it's good.
"For Colored Girls" 10/10, amazing yet not recommended for the 18-25 white males who frequent mmo champ unless you have the maturity level to handle film content that is the antithesis of your demographic.
Watched Die Hard 1 the other day. Excellent film, made me laugh at the bromance between the cop and Willis' character. Also, that inadvertent close-up on the gas prices sign. Something like 80 cents a gallon... Anyway, nothing bad to say, great film, 9/10.
I didn't say everyone...but let's not pretend that everyone here is a bastion of maturity.Hmm. So...you call a group of people not mature, yet you label a large group of people. That makes sense.
That's hyperbole, but I call it as I see it.That's rather specific. It's a ridiculously judgmental statement to make; it'd be the same as if I were to say something like: "This movie was fantastic, but not recommended to the women who frequent mmo-champion unless you're not a whore."
Skyfall was brilliant, not quite as good as Casino (in the Craig line) or Goldfinger (in the Connery line), but it's a really solid film, great action, fantastic character development and a great storyline that shifts gears several times throughout the film (changing pace and location, no spoilers).
Twilight fails across the board. From character development and story progression to acting and directing. I often wonder whether it's entirely Meyer's fault for writing complete crap and being a hack, or whether they're going out of their way to make it bad.
The story is baffling and the action scene is just wonderful schlock.
But that's just an opinion I guess.
Last film seen: Looper, 6.5/10.
Decent, kept me interested, but the ending really let it down, and it feels like a film a college student would have brainstormed while he was high. (Kind of like the Justin Timberlake film In Time, or Time out in french).
Some parts of the movie really annoyed me. Like not killing someone when you have the chance, letting them escape. Or the gigantic hollywood-style explosion at the end. It's just breaking the immersion for me, instead of realistic it's stupid
Black Swan - boring, predictable
Seven years in Tibet - decent
Stay Tuned. Found it on HBOGo this weekend. One of my all time favorite early 90s movies. Solid 7/10
