Quo Vadis 10 out of 10.
I wash my hands until the water burns
What I have seen lately...
Gran Torino: 9/10 rewatched this and forgot how good it was; one of Clint Eastwood's best. Watch this if you haven't yet.

Les Mis, 9/10
Badlands (1973). It was...interesting. Very visually appealing. I wasn't quite sure what it was about, and reminded me of Bonny and Clyde. 7/10 for "not getting it" perhaps.
Django Unchained: Overrated i give it 8/10 max...
Zero Dark Thirty: 8/10
I am going to start off saying I absolutely hate most rom-coms (there are a few exceptions of them that are actually good), and not because it doesn't fit my taste but the fact that the majority of them are terrible movies meant for having eye candy cast and be background noise while teenage couples make out in the back of the theater. This however is one of those exceptions where, although you could classify it as a rom-com, it actually has some heart, it actually made me laugh, and it was original, unique, and kept my interested. I am actually going to go as far as to say it was almost poetic in the way it was done, and it was actually fairly heartwarming leaving a little bit happy on the inside after watching it.
On a technical note, the acting was very solid, as was the directing, writing, etc. Now none of it was unbelievably great (well I could say the make-up was fairly exceptional on how they did it) or anything other than solid, but solid all around this early in the movie season is actually a really nice treat considering that if you exclude Oscar movies from 2012 in theaters there is nothing that has come out (similar to last year in January) that has been anything above slightly passable (and that is only for Mama and a disappointing Gangster Squad considering the cast). So for me this mirrors Chronicle from last year in my opinion, it was a solid surprise and the first good 2013 movie to come out, now it is not like Chronicle at all in terms of tone, story, etc. however I make the comparison simply because they were both nice surprises early in the year when most of the movies that come out are complete garbage.
So I will give a solid 7.5/10 for Warm Bodies
Cloud Atlas, 7/10...it was ok. Got a bit distracted at times early on trying to place the actors in different times as a couple are wearing a lot of makeup. Fucking long but visually awesome though as would be expected from the Wachowski's.

then he turned into a shit-bonfire and then driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance
he turned into a raging shit firestorm."
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: 9/10 WOW Just woow.
P.S. I know I am a little late to the party.
Wreck it Ralph. 7/10
It was pretty good, but not nearly as good as people make it out to be.
The Hobbit: Unbelievably good film. Only reason its a 9 is because some parts dragged a -tiny- bit on. 9/10
Wreck-It-Ralph: Has shot up in my top favorite films ever. Ridiculously good film, fun, exhilarating and a complete joy to watch. An easy 10/10
Friday - Wreck it Ralph - 9/10
Saturday - Resident Evil: Retribution 3/10

Warlock - Main - now with GREEN FIRE!
Resto Shaman - Main Alt
Exception - Recruiting for 25man heroic progression
6 web short halo episodes (combined they are roughly the length of a short movie)? IDK. From what I can see the only mass effect film in development is far from completion. But I didn't think Forward Unto Dawn (Halo) was that bad. I would have preferred a bit more focus on Master Chief or whatever, but it was alright.
Robot and Frank 7/10
Decent movie have some funny bits but a lot of depressing/sad parts aswell.
It was ok i suppose but the whole thing with the kid in the end just made me want to punch the kid in the face.
Life of Pi 9/10
Good movie expected a lot less from it but was quite suprised by it.
Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 9/10
Just awesome to see the old batman beat people up in this animation style.
