    My thought as well. Extremely well done action sci fi - loved the combat scenes with the drones and the exploring of the desolated earth. But lately its like that you cant have a scif fi without the obligatory Phillip K Dick inspired plot in the end. It is not necessary - a movie like Avatar worked pretty well without feeling the need to twists the plot 180 degrees in the end.
    WOuld still give Oblivion 7/10 for the first 3/4 part - good entertainment.

    What worries me the most about Oblivion is Tom Cruise quite frankly, haven't seen the movie yet though. He's such a great actor, but these days it seems as if he doesn't act. He's just Tom Cruise, the motherfucker you don't mess with.

    Strange that his name in Oblivion seems to be Jack, as I'm quite afraid his performance will look exactly like Jack Reacher (which was hilarious imo). I miss the interview with a Vampire days.

    Evil Dead: 1/10

    I so wish I could unsee this. I was told by a friend (who went with me) that she was told it as black humor. We were bored, and none of the other movies looked interesting, so we bought some tickets. Biggest mistake of my life. I went in knowing that I'm very squeamish, and was expecting some violence since this was an R movie, but the violence in this movie is in a league of its own. I spent most of the movie cringing, covering my eyes, and trying to crawl deeper and deeper into my seat. It wasn't even scary. The intent of this movie is not to scare you but to instead shock you into wondering how far they'll go in the next scene. A lady cuts off her own face, a lady cuts off her own arm, a lady rips her armoff from underneath a heavy object, a lady gets her arm blown off with a shotgun......bleeeehhhh. Too much for me.

    1/10 would not recommend this to my worst enemy. This a movie with no substance; it felt like it was nothing but underground gore fetish.

    Mildly amusing, bloody, average plot, average acting.

    its a remake so the story was pretty much just filler to what is essentially finding a book of the dead and trying to survive the night in the woods lol.. no tension or scares and i dont even rate the gore that high as ive seen far far worse (even the needle scene was weak). All i can hope now is that box office is decent and sam raimi goes and makes another one.. (even if its a reboot of evil dead 2)

    You were so miss sold the movie or trolled. It's a straight up gore movie. Not much more to it than that.

    I'd agree it wasn't scary but I still loved it. Sam has said he's going to make an Army of Darkness 2 so rest easy.

    The last movie I watched was The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on blu-ray at home and I'd give it a 7/10. I know it is supposed to have sequels but I would have liked a better ending, I won't say more than that in case someone has not seen it. I thought some parts were funny but found myself bored at some parts as well. It was good for the 1.50 it cost me out of Red Box.

    Oblivion: 9/10

    Loved it, the twist was amazing, theres a part in the movie when my jaw dropped.. and i was just like.."noooo way.. wtf!"

    Think they coulda spent a little more time on the ending though, seemed a little too quick to me, they didnt answer all the questy, mainly being Who.

    Evil Dead: 7/10

    It was gory, got a few cheap scares out of me. I liked how it kept iconic scenes from the original, girl raped by bush/tree, hero losing arm and wielding chain saw. Some freaky gross moment, like the girl licking the razor.

    Otherwise i feel the acting was sub par. Story was a little lame.

    Django 10/10

    Fantastic I love Q.T films. Walken does it for me, and Foxx is a strong actor, fantastic. Leo Dicaprio is easy to hate, but Samuel L. takes the cake by being the pratty house nigger (mods thats what he was....dont infract thanks.) and i really hated Smauels character more then Mr. Candy.

    2/10. Plot was awful and didn't care for the love triangle.

    Oblivion. 8/10

    Enjoyable, fun to watch. Bit predictable though, the scavs are human bit I saw a mile away. Jack having a thousands clones though, not so much.

    Oh and it wasn't until the blond dude was taking aim at a drone during the big fight sequence that I realized that was Jaime Lannister's actor.

    Taken (2008). Liked the main character and how he was portrayed (plus, Liam Neeson is pretty good). The ex-wife was kind of a moron and just proved the protagonist right every single time when she berated everything he did and thought, which in turn would put their own freaking daughter and her friend in danger when they got kidnapped (did not honestly help that the friend died). One redeeming quality is that she finally stopped acting like an ass when she finally realized what was going on.

    As for the plot, it was pretty interesting and fast paced, and it was satisfying to the emotions you got when watching it. Though, considering that the main protagonist was a pensioner in the story, it seemed to me that he was fighting like he was 20/30. Of course it's a movie, but when you take down dozens of people, barely sleep for about 4 days, and have no one else to fight all those battles but yourself, it starts to get into Superman levels of resilience. Plus, he managed to find clues on his chase quite quickly, but considering what a perfectionist he was it at least is a bit easier to swallow.

    Watched V for Vendetta (2006) again and it is a great movie with the message it is giving.

    I give it a 9/10.

    Watched Total Recall Extended Directors cut (2012) for the first time a few days ago and it is just an ok action movie but nothing more. Nothing amazing just something to watch but it wasn't so bad that I started doing other things either.

    I give it a 4/10.

    I gave it a 7/10

    After watching alot of shit horrors in last few years, this one was pleasantly surprising, maybe cause it didnt have any A list B list actors in it.

    My girlfriend hadn't seen it so I felt she should. Still a great movie after all these years.

    Went to see Evil Dead yesterday. I was quite disappointed, it lacked the charm of the original and the sound mix which gave it a real edge. It was turned into a generic torture porn, non-scary modern horror with far too many modern horror cliches. 4/10.

    I totally agree but I think the mark you gave t was too low, while the original Evil Dead was silly I do feel this current one takes itself too seriously, still good though, it was nice to spot the bits that reminded you of the actual movie, the fact that there was a female lead really didn't bother me as much as I thought it would.

    I give it a 6/10 for effort, #Surprised me a lot more than I thought it would.

    Pretty much. Probably very intentional as my group of friends know how badly I handle gore.

    Django:

    I couldn't get into it but Samuel L Jackson is sexy so I'll give it a few extra points for that. 6/10
