Hm. Quite good. I like such critical society movies.

ridley scott is the master of lighting. this movie is no exception. also i love hannibal, you can't not, even though he's utterly despicable at the same time he's incredibly cultured and likable so he's not degenerate human waste.
kind of like tom ripley in ripley's game only to a much more hyperbolic sense because while ripley is more of a chaotic neutral hannibal is just plain evil. he's crazy but even more so he's fuckin evil as shit.
Thanks, everyone needs spoilers before seeing a film. :-)
ya i should be more careful i could spoil it for billions of people with my 5 star review.
At least I'm not the only one who loved Hannibal.
Hannibal was pretty mediocre, deviated from the books so god damned much and 90% of it felt like it was just there for shock value.
Not to mention the horrible miscasting of Julianne Moore.
the dark knight rises 10/10
heath ledger was amazing
The movie kept me interested throughout the most of it. Great acting, great scenery and action.
The abrupt ending was disappointing at first, but the after credits made up for it big time
Kill Bill and Kill Bill Vol.2 are on TV, and for some reason it keeps bleeping out whatever they call the bride/Uma Thurman, I don't understand why the fuck they'd do that unless it's actually in the movie and i'm just forgetting. There's no censor for words like fuck or cunt so it's bothering the shit out of me.
The censors are in in the actual movie.
Enjoyed it a lot. Had a weird charm to it and the soundtrack was great. Also I had no idea it was made in 1967, just assumed it was from the 80s or late 70s for some reason.
The Avengers - 9/10
I wasn't as interested in the story, but the action and the visuals were holyshit. It's also pretty funny in some parts, and it stayed true to the Avengers comics (allegedly)
i liked it
J. Edgar - 8/10
Really good movie, entertaining. Over-sensationalized the man a bit, but the acting was great and the atmosphere was quite authentic. It's amazing to think of having the kind of power that he did.
I liked the film. It was interesting to see an action film set in modern times, but using primarily hand-to-hand combat, with zero guns as firearms have been banned and it is strictly and well enforced. That never really comes up in the plot though.
I liked the fact that the two "strangers" end up in the same town, looking for two separate things (Revenge and a Medallion), that end up being found at the same location.
I liked the visual style of the film, it was very comic book like, and some parts reminded me of a school play. The trees that can be seen towards the end of the film seem to be made of the same paper that grocery store bags are made out of.
I found the middle of the film to drag out a bit and almost turned the movie off because it was going too slow, but it eventually picked up again, so I wish that it was a bit shorter.
Overall I enjoyed the film.
Naked Blood - 8/10
Fucking hell, this is the most intense film I've ever seen. I've sat through A Serbian Film twice and Naked Blood still made me squeamish through pretty much all of the gore scenes. For anybody into that sort of thing, I would highly recommend it. I'm actually surprised I hadn't heard of it before a coworker told me a couple days ago. The plot isn't terribly well-written but for what the film is it doesn't have to be well-written.
And as a surprise bonus, there's virtual-reality hugging sex with a cactus at the end.
First time watching it, in order to get me ready for Prometheus. It was very good, I had already known that Alien was a good movie but had never seen it for myself. The parts that I liked the most were when the alien first popped out of Kane's chest, I found it horrifying (in a good way of course) how the rest of the crew had no idea it was coming out of his chest and how they were frantically trying to get out what they thought was something lodged in his throat. The other part was when you find out Ash isn't human, but a robot, and then they turn his decapitated head back on, that was crazy. Oh yeah and at the end when the Alien was jettisoned from the ship, nuts.
I heard/read the others weren't as good, but this was amazing, Ridley Scott is a fantastic director and I can't wait to see Prometheus.
While watching the first one my brother stopped watching before the fight with the crazy 88s, with the explanation of "i've seen it before" as if knowing the outcome makes the fight any less awesome to watch.
The Wild Bunch: 8/10
Is that "Ponyo on the cliff" movie watchable?
Holy shit, "The Avengers" just made $200,000,000 over the weekend, making it the highest grossing opening weekend ever.
I should probably see it when I get the chance. I haven't heard anything bad about it yet.
Fight Club 10/10
First time I've seen it and it blew my mind. It just keeps you guessing and never gives too much away, which is very effective. Also Brad Pitt's fucking brilliant in it.
Can anyone recommend a good horror/slasher/thriller movie?
21 Jump Street 8/10
The Avengers 9/10
Quite simply, the best superhero movie released that I have had the pleasure of seeing. Definitely worth the extra money to buy the XD 3D ticket. The extra large screen was great, and the 3D, in my opinion, was not overdone. I believe that Joss did a great job on this, and I look forward to the sequel if he is involved with it.
Source Code - 7/10
Better than expected, but nothing phenomenal.
Psycho (1960) - 8/10.
The story is sort of depressing, but it remains an excellent work of cinema and acting.
