    Pitch Perfect
    I heard from so many different people and some of my friends that saw it that this was a hilarious movie, so when I found this on TV I was expecting a funny play off of Glee with some good musical numbers. Now first off this is way better (in that better musical numbers, and much funnier with less idiotic love triangle drama) than anything Glee has done since season 1, however that doesn't say much.

    It was enjoyable to watch with a good amount of funny moments, but it had its fair share of drowsy typical blotches that you would expect out of most rom-com type movies. Also, although I enjoyed my time, I really didn't feel like I would have missed out on anything if I never saw this movie at all, there is nothing truly memorable about this movie, except for one thing, and that's Fat Amy. Fat Amy was kind of what bumped this movie from getting a score I would give to a forgettable mediocre movie to a score to what I would give to a movie that is a good time and worth watching if you have the spare time. Nearly all of the funny moments came from her, and she was one of the more original characters of the cast.

    The musical numbers were also pretty nice, yes some of them sounded a little bit unbelievable to be hearing from that set of characters, yet it wasn't nearly as unbelievable as the cast of 30 year olds playing proffessional perfect pitch 15 year olds you would see in the show it is parodying (Glee). None of them were really memorable however, meaning if somebody told me to pick a song from it that stands out I would probably shrug and have no idea because none of the numbers were.

    Overall, I am trying to be nice on this movie because I have just seen and re-watched many of my favorite movies of 2012 so it's obvious this wouldn't live up to them, and I found I actually did enjoy it quite a bit, but not enough to where I would recommend it for anything other than renting it for a cheap date night movie or watching it on TV when you are bored and need something to do. Yet since I did enjoy the movie to an extent I will give it a, 6.3/10

    Just watched Zero Dark Thirty, 9.5/10. Spectacular movie, didn't glorify the whole 'Merica we killed Osama angle. Really enjoyed it and I'm loving the influx of releases of dvd screeners for award season ect.

    Watched Premium Rush last night, Usually a huge fan of Joshua Levitt Gordon, but that movies was the biggest piece of hipster crap I have ever seen. Seriously a 1/10, I'm not even sure how i finished it.

    I should have known what i was getting into when they started talking about "fixies".

    The only reason it can be passable as a decent movie is because of the production value that was done by very competent people who knew how to sell this old story concept. The technical aspects of the movie are undeniably impressive, but I do not consider the visuals to ooze creativity or them to be anything that surpass other movies inside or even outside its genre.
    Avatar always reminded me of Nagrand and Zangarmarsh. It is striking how similar Outlands is to scenes in the film; it is also interesting that the film's concept art was developed between 2005 and 2007, while BC was launched Jan 2007. Not to mention the similarities between the Na'vi and Draenei...I'd imagine that the film was influenced at least somewhat by the expansion's art design, although there is no real way to prove that.

    Just watched Django Unchained, holy shit is it a good movie, breath of fresh air seeing as most of the movies I watched in 2012 were full of CGI shit. Wow, definitely 10/10, honestly nothing bad to say about it, and Christopher Waltz is so fucking good in it, same with Jamie Foxx.

    Django Unchained 8/10

    Django unchained has been watched , while its a good film its still not one of Tarantino's best. Worth a watch and a good western, if you like westerns and violence watch it.

    Jack Reacher, 4/10. Meh acting, plot was pretty bad/overly complex. It's based on a book, and I feel like they tried to fit too much into the movie. Random stuff happening all over the place

    Lawless, 7/10
    Was pretty good, aside from Labeouf, he seemed out of place to me.

    7.5/10
    The movie was great up untill he got to Sugar Rush, then it just became your standard Disney movie. Still the animatons are really well done and the nostalgia on certain parts alone make it worth it. The voice cast is top notch, as always.

    500 Days of Summer
    9/10

    What can I say? Definately the best movie I've ever seen based on a setup of a boy and a girl falling in love with each other (even tho that was not actually the case in this movie but you get my point), just such a beatiful movie, and really sad too in a way. The acting by Zooey and Joseph is nothing but spectacular, and you can really see that they are good friends in real life as they just click perfectly in the movie. That's why it's so easy to connect with the character of Gordon-Lewitt and that being said, the movie is one hell of a rollercoaster of different feelings and emotions. The movie was really refreshing in the genre filled with generic, non-interesting movies that really give you nothing back. I wasn't actually expecting that much from the movie, but it completely blew me away with it's overall execution and beauty. The soundtrack was one of the best movie soundtracks I've heard in a while, including artists like The Smiths and Temper Trap.

    Good entertaining movie, nothing extremely rememberable imo though. A pretty good bond movie.

    Django Unchained - 9/10 - Great film and everything you would expect from Quentin Tarantino. The story, characters and intense scenes are all there. Christoph Waltz is a great actor.

    The Hobbit - 8/10 - I was worried about it failing after the success of LoTR but while it might not quite be at that level it's still a very good effort. The setting and effects are amazing and the scene with Golum was worth the admission price alone



    This Is 40 - 5/10- I liked Knocked Up and I generally usually like this type of movie but this was awful, I was bored watching it.

    Looper, 9/10.

    I find time-travel movies a bit too analogous, but enjoyed the concept behind this one.
