    Sunshine (2007) 9/10

    I shed a tear at the end, the story was all-right, loved how they    made Pinbacker "censored", so the viewer couldn't get an idea how he really looked like

    Die Hard 9/10

    Honestly it's the best action movie ever, I could watch it endless times because the plot isn't cliche and makes sense even if what Hans plan is a little retarded.

    My cousin went to see it with his family. After it was over, they all got in line and saw it again.
    That sounds pretty retarded to be honest. I can understand seeing it again after a couple of days, but two times in a row?

    Going to see "The Avengers" and "The Hunger Games" this weekend. Hoping for the best. I've heard a lot of good things about both of them.

    tbh I don't get why everyone kept praising the hunger games like it was the best thing ever, it's probably one of the most forgettable action movies I've ever seen

    oh wait, it's not all that easy to forget
    I'm always going to remember it as the worst camera work in a movie, ever

    I've heard about the shaky-cam, but I don't think it'll bother me too much. The Blair Witch Project didn't bother me at all.

    The concept and visuals are interesting which is probably why most people enjoyed it. But the entire Hunger Games themselves are lackluster. Most of the time when fighting is going on it's difficult to tell whats going on, at one point two guys with the same color and outfit are fighting while the camera is shaking about, no idea what's going on. An injured dude paints himself into his surroundings while injured, perfectly with no mirror for reference, some characters and killed off screen and it's just like "yeah they're dead now, you care right?" There's an entirely forced emotional scene that goes on for too long. I could go on but in short it could have been executed waaaay better with little effort. The only character I cared about was the main one and that wasn't by much.

    Battle Royale on the other hand made me give a shit about even minor characters. It had an engaging story and cool battle scenes. Generally it was a more mature film which is really what was missing from The Hunger Games, I mean it's a movie about teenagers killing eachother and they went for a PG-13 rating.

    Shaky cam does not bother me at all, I was able to follow Blair Witch and Cloverfield easily.

    I guess I'm just lucky.

    I liked Rango. The story was a little bit lame but a lot of the visuals were surprisingly nice.

    the thing with those movies is that the shaky cam was always there, so it added to the tone of the film. in the hunger games, however, there's a very steady, wide shot of the competitors, when suddenly it turns shaky for no discernible reason, not to mention it was badly made.

    for example, in cloverfield, shaky cam during that part    when the girl is attacked by one of these giant flea things    fit really well, because they didn't need to show what was happening. it was a horror movie after all, not a movie where a set number of people fights to the death. you don't NEED to see the monsters, but you really want to, but it's like a real recorded video, and the whole thing sort of fits well together.

    The same doesn't apply to Hunger Games, because it's a TV show about people dying, you're SUPPOSED to see them die. I know why they did the shaky cam, but it really fucked up the atmosphere for me.

    The last 30 seconds of this movie added an extra point onto an already great movie. It just felt like the perfect ending to it.

    Thor

    I'm sort of basing off my review on the Half in the Bag one, and I recommend you see it. Not only do I love these guys, they make some pretty good points, and I agree with most of them.

    First of all, yes, it really is like an 80's fantasy movie. Not because it has an 80's feeling, but because pretty much everything in it reminds me of that kind of movie, you could even say the script was made in the 80's, but adapted to our time. Anyway, the movie opens up with your generic "hey, look at the cool effects we can create" intro sequence, a brief explanation of the story, and after a while, it cuts to Thor, in the present,    being made king   . After that, the story continues by showing the events that lead to everything else after    Thor does a major fuck up, and is banished from Asgard.   

    The way the story was told didn't bother me. In fact, the beginning was my favorite part of the movie (as with most Marvel movies), mostly because it was so serious, and it managed to keep that tone, even though everyone was wearing shiny superhero armor and colorful capes. But not long after, it breaks that feeling by going back to what I mentioned before. I'm sorry for bringing it up so much, but the whole thing with the effects, with humor being created from Thor using his medieval manners in modern times, and generally just cheesy writing    (Oh, this guy is telling me that he's a god from another dimension, I better believe him and not question that AT ALL)    remind me way too much of an 80's fantasy movie, it's almost like they did it on purpose.

    The acting is good, the effects are good (but overused), and the characters are just fine, I simply think that these elements that were out of place couldn't keep me concentrated in the actual story, because you simply can't take it seriously when the flow of the movie is constantly interrupted by unnecessary things. I think that the movie was pretty good, but it could have been really much better.

    Also, it has the best after-credits scene of all the movies that lead to the Avengers

    I don't know why critics say it wasn't a great movie. I loved it.
    The story makes me paranoid and various parts of the movie made me actually sad.

    Melancholia (2011) - 7.8/10

    Visually this movie is absolutely stunning, the acting is very very good, the first half was a bit slow (more then a bit actually) but damn this movie is powerful.

    And depressing as fuck.

    Scent of a Woman

    Al Pacino never was as much of a badass as he is here. He's blind, and he loves the female.
    He ends up as the role model by the strength of his strong, humorous character. He's genuine, but also has a lot of pain in his heart. That's the connection I like about this movie.

    The guy who played Robin from Batman is here too, and he actually has a great performance.. shame his career took a nosedive.

    Worth watching, it's the type of movie where it takes its time, but not overly that requires a lot of effort to warm to the conversations. With this, I felt at home with each character and it worked truly well.

    Apart from the Pacino aspect of the movie, it's also about a college feud which was pretty okay to the plot. I've seen this stuff a ton of times, but at the end when Mr Pacino helps the kid out by standing up against the "school disciplinary courts", is pretty stunning and natural.

    One of his very best.

    Just watched Cowboy Bebop episode 5. It cemented it as my favourite anime, and perhaps favourite show. Almost everything about it is perfect. That soundtrack... That scene...

    I will give the episode a 10/10 and the show so far a 9/10

    Thought this was a fantastic film, the acting and the cinematography of the memory erasure sequences especially stand out.

    Also between this and Titanic I have the biggest celebrity crush on Kate Winslet.

    They are compared because they are basically the same concept in different wrapping paper.
