    Do you think I could still enjoy it even though I find sport really annoying?
    yes


    like if i get invited to a game of any kind i'd go if it had intense moments. really going to a game is more about getting fucked up and being with your friends. it's like a long somewhat boring movie you goto just as an excuse to have fun.

    but, this movie is as akz said much more about the non sports bits than they are about the sports bits.

    there is a bit of sports movie tension in the end, like one bit, and it's pretty god damn suspenseful if you ask me.

    Memento - 9/10

       So was Lenny bad? Or was he the protagonist I thought he was throughout the whole movie? Was Teddy really the good guy, were his lies actually the truth?   

    I like this movie a lot, but goddamn it makes my head hurt.

    I suggest another viewing of the film, with those questions in mind while you watch. That's what I did.

    If you want to know (what I think) right now, instead of watching again:
       We have no reason not to believe Teddy, seems like he really was the cop assigned to the attack on Lenny and his wife's case (he got Lenny the files, so he seems legit).
    He's been trying to help Lenny find this John G. guy, hoping that it will make him feel better and maybe even remember having his revenge (if we apply the Sammy story on Lenny then it seems some people think his condition is psychological rather than physical (which is true, he made himself forget he killed his wife, and made a new memory about so called "Sammy")).
    So after awhile, Teddy and Lenny find this John G. person, Lenny gets his revenge and Teddy takes the picture and Lenny with a shit-eating grin. That doesn't last very long, and Lenny wants to find John G. again. Lenny destroys some of the report papers so he could find another John G. and have an unsolvable mystery.

    Teddy still helps Lenny find this guy, but dresses up the facts so they fit other people called John/James G., like drug dealers and such, so basically Teddy made Lenny into a vigilante.
    Lenny finds about this, gets angry at Teddy, writes "Don't trust his lies" on the Teddy photo and Fact #6 - Teddy's license plate numbers. This way Lenny makes sure he would find out later that Teddy is [i]the[/i] John/James G. so he could kill him for lying to him.

    The Thing (2011): 6.2/10

    I have mixed feelings about this. I love the '82 classic, and I've been wanting to see the prequel since it came out. I mean, it wasn't as bad as I had expected, but it wasn't really all that great either. I hate how they just had to write in some American characters in again. Would've been cooler if all characters were Norwegian, and everything was subtitled. Also, I didn't like how we got to see the    Alien spaceship   . It took away some of the mystery around 'the thing' imo.

    The CGI wasn't actually all that bad though, and I even spotted a shot or two were it looked like they used animatronics.

    Also, it was nice how they showed    Lars and the other dude chasing the dog in the chopper during the credits.    I was hoping that scene would be in there.

    Very very good post. I will watch it again, as I do really love how the movie is executed. But your post really cleared up a lot.

    Cant decide whether to rate you friendly or informative.

    Great movie, well directed and well acted. It almost had one of the most depressing endings but there was more afterwards so that was good.

    The Grey - 9/10

    I found the change from "everybody getting chased by a serial killer" to "everybody getting chased by wolves" was rather a welcome one. And even with the wolves being a main driving force in the film they manage to not be the main focus, which I appreciate considering only about a quarter of the entire movie directly dealt with what you would call the main antagonists. It was more about how the men were fighting to survive and all the psychological and emotional shit that comes with being forced into such a situation. In some areas the dialogue is difficult to understand, doesn't make sense, or comes across as a little cheesy (like the part at the end where    Liam Neeson says "Oh lord, it's their den," or something to that effect   ) but the issue isn't so bad that you don't enjoy the movie.

    It felt like an episode of Courage The Cowardly Dog for me. Even when nothing bad was happening, you felt uneasy.

    Probably my favorite of the 3 movies, took the best bits of Poltergeist and made it even creepier... and damn that ending.
    I really dig the filming style of these movies and definitely wouldn't mind seeing it done more often with horror movies.

    It has to have good acting though, otherwise the whole damn thing would fall apart.

    Mary and Max- 9/10

    Superbad- 9/10

    I love them both for different reasons. Chances are, a lot of you guys have seen Superbad, but not too many can say the same for Mary and Max.

    Don't look up anything about it before seeing it. Just know that it's a clay-animated film like Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline.

    More like old fashioned mission impossible.

    The first one is way superior, I found this one too confusing and not as fun. It remains a decent action flick anyhow.

    Dead Set - 8.5/10...
    Probably the greatest zombie TV series ever made, such a shame that it was technically a miniseries that only went on for 5 really short (pilot was 45 mins, the rest of the eps were 24 minutes long each) episodes.
    Hell, I'd go so far as to say that it featured more character development and story than even The Walking Dead has shown in the 2 seasons it's run.(though, the last two eps of S2 showed some promise)

    i love it too. in my opinion the biggest flaw the the sense of closure, that lacks a bit (unless you watch the credits)(the credits are great and shouldve been implemented in the movie directly)

    Transformers 3

    Pros:
    -Nice visuals
    -Optimus Prime has the trailer and they actually made use of it by making it a portable armory
    -The Ferrari 458 they used managed to not catch on fire

    Cons:
    -Elitism
    -Racism
    -Unneeded patrioism
    -Promotes terrorism
    -republicans
    -Stupid characters
    -No Nissan GTR
    -The bitch at 25:15 didn't have socks on when she put on the shoes.
    -Falsified history
    -Forigners are given the thickest accents
    -Typical american mistake of mispronouncing words "Mr. Hirimotow"
    -1970 Datsun 510 treated like the cheapest, most unreliable car ever.
    -They demolished a perfect condition Nissan 350Z
    -That faggot, Major Lennox, doesn't die.
    -At 1:16:00 you can see that Megatron's foot is through the stone.
    -Monitors with somekind of a made up OS installed are absolutely everywhere.
    -Linkin Park - Iridescent starts playing too fucking often
    -Everyone fires like their arms are asleep

    0/10 unwatchable

    Rampart - 6.5/10

    Not even Woody Harrelson's acting can save this one. Rampart moves slowly and the camera work is boring. The corruption of Rampart officers was a good backdrop but the ending ultimately fails to deliver a good conclusion to the story.

    Seriously, the movies aren't that terrible.
    People blow their mediocrity way out of proportion.

    That and I scare easily, which can be perceived as a benefit in this regard I suppose.
