    The Dark Knight Rises, and I'll give it a 6/10. That's being pretty generous imo too. I went in with greatly lowered expectations because Heath Ledger is out of the picture and was still disappointed by it. Generally I'm a very easy please at the theater, but this just didn't do it for me. Bane's voice was cool but I couldn't make out half of what he was saying. Cat Burglar or whatever she's called was sexy but her costume seemed half assed. The entire part with the pit was very stupid. Did anyone NOT think that batman was going to eventually jump out of there?

    It seemed to me like they tried too hard to not mention the Joker at all in the movie and that was stupid. Not to mention they even ruined part of The Dark Knight by having Bane expose Harvey Dent for who he really was. A small part of what made The Dark Knight so cool was Batman taking the fall for Harvey...only to have it ruined in the 3rd film.

    Don't get me wrong, I'll probably even watch the movie again one day, but it felt too much like Batman Begins 2. It didn't deserve The Dark Knight label.

    Hoten Transylvania.

    I'd personally give it a 6.5/10 it was a nice and amusing experience at the cinema. The movie focuses on Mavis, Dracula's daughter, which wants to go out and see the world. At her 118th anniversary, Dracula prepares a big party for Mavis, inviting a bunch of monsters. The hotel , as Dracula said, was a hidden place, and no human could could reach it. He also promised Mavis that at 118 years, she'll be allowed to go out and see the outside world, which Mavis reminded him. He allowed her to turn into a bat, and go to see the closest town. There, she found a lot of people with torches and such, trying to kill her. She started crying, and then ran back to the castel thinking at what her father said. (the humans were bad creatures, and they only wanted the worse for the others. Did I mention the monsters were afraid of humans?They were.) Anyway, the humans were actually zombies employed by Dacula to scare Mavis and made her stay inside the castle forever.
    Whe the zombies came back to the castel, a traveler called Jonathan noticed them and started following them to the castle. Dracky sees him and tries to get him out without anybody noticing, and dresses him as Frankenstien's cousin. They meet Mavis inside the castle, which wants to talk *balh blah blah* , then she falls in love with him, *blah blah blah* , Dracula disagrees and scares the shit out of Jonathan , *blah blh blah *, *sad stories from the past*. The movie ends with Mavis and Jonathan being together.


    tldr: Dracula fucks up the sittuation and then he tries to fix it. The boy and the girl end together.

    There are many things I forgot to mention there. Overall, the movie was worth the $25 ticket for the VIP room, lots of giggles, great animation, etc. Did I mention it was regised by Genndy Tartakovsky?

    SuckerPunch 9/10
    Tripped my mind hard.
    Was good, entertaining, and the main girl was lovely!
    Great movie though. Ordered the Bluray of it about 5mins after I finished watching it.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    Wrek it ralph. 8/10, classic Disney story telling combined with video games, cant really go wrong there. what i really liked about it was it was able to give me what i wanted or at least was expecting but didn't go overboard with any of it. do i see famous video game characters? yes. but only as cameos which is really all they should be. and as a John c. Reilly fan i was half expecting to see/hear lots of....dale but instead i get a fully realized character of Ralph that i care about or at least see myself liking. the other characters are great and it has the, dare i say stereotypical happy disney ending(not that it's a bad thing by any means).

    that really a spoiler? no...

    The Amazing Spider-man.

    7.5-8/10

    Was actually a pretty good reboot, and stuck much closer to the Comic version of Spiderman than the Tobey Maguire Trilogy (Webshooters/Flash/Gwen Stacy etc.).

    Was a good solid Comic movie.
    Bow down before our new furry overlords!

    My new favorite movie (and my new avatar ). Seriously, this is a must watch, I don't know how I only recently saw it for the first time. I could watch it over and over and over again. So sad too

    Prometheous: 7/10

    The set-up was amazing and really had my attention going. Without giving too much away as I'm lazy, I was dissappointed with the second half of the movie, instead of making what could have been something awesome and original they made it a super-predictable crapfest that has been done hundreds of times already. It was a nice looking film with good effects and decent acting, but nothing all that special because of the turn they took with it. Could have been so much more.

    Also, I'm glad to see some good Skyfall reviews. Haven't gotten around to seeing it yet but will make sure I do.

    Skyfall: 7/10. A decent action movie and one of the better Bond movies but nothing great. I think that after the disaster that was Quantum of Solace people are over hyping this one.

    Ted

    7/10

    Don't know, it had some funny moments or references, especially the massive overacting with the shit on the ground. Acting wasn't to bad, but a bit predictable and not hilariously funny. Good if you're bored imo.

    Chernobyl Diaries.

    5/10? If that.

    I thought the storyline was amazing - the ideology behind it, at least.
    But the deliverance was crap. The ending was awful.

    The Sweeney
    I'd give it 8/10
    It's quite heavy in action but very un-realstic in how the law would act but if you can put that Aside you'll love this film

    Wrong turn 5
    1/10

    This movie is the worst of its kind. I somehow kind of enjoyed the first 4 movies, as in, they were amusing in a way :P But the fifth movie is just soo bad.. :<

    Total Remake( recall )

    I have no idea what I just watched? I think it was a fan made trailer splicing Minority report, I-Robot onto what a modern Total recall remake would look like.


    2/10

    Would have given it 3/10 if they had added some more lens flare, every 5 seconds just wasn't enough imo

    Totally agreed, the one set in the insane asylum was surprisingly decent but this one was terrible.

    Skyfall, 6/10. My hopes were too high after all that hype so I was a bit disappointed.

    Wrong Turn 5 is out already? I've seen Wrong Turn 4 not that long ago, and that movie was pretty crap aswell :P. Wrong Turn 3 is still the worst imo.

    'The Master'
    Absolutely top shelf cinematography and stellar acting (Phoenix should get an award for this one), tied to a story that just doesn't seem to go anywhere. While I get that that's sort of the point, it still isn't nearly as solid as some of this directors other flicks. 6.5/10.

    'The Anniversary Party'
    A rather interesting cast IMO, but I felt that this would be better served as a play. Not amazing, but not bad. I didn't care about any of the characters. 5/10

    Shop Girl
    Meh. 4/10

    We Need to Talk About Kevin
    One of the best pro-abortion movies ever made, even if that isn't the intent. Great acting, easy to follow time skipping, though the fathers actions and some of the mothers choices actually make the story quite unrealistic. 6/10

    Skyfall: 8.75/10. lots of hype, and it generally lived up to the hype, but Bond movies aren't really 9 or 10 material. Was a solid film with a decent ending.

    Serenity: 7/10. Firefly series was AMAZING before it was cancelled and this movie is a must-see for a true fan; good story but Joss Whedon has no idea how to do war scenes, they're cheesy in a bad way. Movie would be a solid 8-9/10 with some editing and better production value.
