I thought this one could do with a refresher, although perhaps with people offering short reviews of some of the films they've seen rather than just listing them. PART ONE (http://www.providermodule.com/forum/showthread.php/2856-Recent-Films-You-ve-Seen) was here, for anyone wanting to read it again.

There's always plenty of films in my life, although in particular the last few weeks have had some consistent nights in as it gets colder and the wife is away. In no particular order, I've enjoyed The Long Good Friday, The Truman Show, Snatch, Dead Man's Shoes, Mona Lisa, The Football Factory, Sexy Beast, Road To Perdition, Romper Stomper, The Business, Brighton Rock [2010], Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and This Is England over the past two weeks. Yes, a lot of very violent, visceral films in that list, but hey, life isn't always soft and fluffy.
It was the first time seeing a couple of those, specifically Dead Man's Shoes, This Is England, and Brighton Rock. All new additions were fantastic, especially Brighton Rock. Sumptuous visuals, brilliant acting, and a faithful if inventive adaptation of Greene's original novel that didn't step on the toes of the Attenborough/Hartnell version. I hadn't really explored any of Shane Meadows work before either, and the other two were brilliant in different ways.

I look forward to hearing others!

This Is England is a great film, but it was one of those films I put off watching and then wished I had seen it sooner. There is a TV show that continues on, set some years after the film but containing all the same actors/characters I think. I've been meaning to sit down and watch it but always forget about it or don't have the time, it goes on and off 4OD and I always seem to miss it.

I think the first series was This Is England '86 and the second series is This Is England '88, the second series is on 4OD: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/this-is-england/4od
But I would think it connects on some how, so it's probably better to find 86 first.

Could've been Tarantino's remake of Faster Pussycat and his ultimate wet dream for a grindhouse flick with BFF Robert Rodriguez. Twas good

Ender's Game - 1st half of the movie is like teenage version of Full Metal Jacket in alien space minus Gunnery Hartman's swearing tirades and 2nd half was a bit Hunger Games-ish deathmatch training with the other camps. Decent pop corn sci-fi teen flick to me.

Sleeping Beauty 2011 - Don't expect Maleficient witch or prince charming in this one cos this one's more like a Kubrick-ish mind fuckery.

^ That was the saving grace of my movie despite she got killed off in the 2nd half. Oh well. It's slighty better than the 1st one.. Sofia's machine gun bra and the panty that shoots bullets when she does the humping dance move was just pure LOL gold.

The Hobbit : The Desolation of Smaug
Fantastic film! I will say that I thought the first half of the film was sort of slow, but this was probably because of how the first film ended I wanted them to just get to the mountain already. It was still all good but the second half was great once they were inside the mountain with Smaug. Benedict Cumberbatch providing the voice for Smaug was a great match, when he started talking it seemed familiar and it bugged me for about 5 minutes until Star Trek came to mind as to where I've heard the voice before. Evangeline Lilly was also great.

Now I just want next xmas to come around so I can see the final film.

ARTIFACT

I kept seeing ARTIFACT being posted about on Facebook, so I decided to see what it was actually about. I knew it was about 30 Seconds To Mars, which I'm not even a fan of but then I read it's a documentary about their album creation and how record label's treat artist, so I decided to check it out.
It's a good documentary and you don't have to be a fan of 30STM to enjoy it. It really shows how shit it is for bands, they need a major label to help them get out there in the world but by doing so they're just fucked over at the same time. It has a lot of different people interviewed from bands, journalists or people who've worked or work for record labels.
If you are a fan of the band, then I'm sure it's even better because you're getting a good behind the scenes look at them creating their This Is War album.

I have seen a lot of movies in the last month or so...

I will just post today's movies. I watch 10 - 15 movies a week.

The Hobbit 2 - 9.5/10

Blackfish

Now.. the one I just watched is a doc called Blackfish. I think everyone should see this movie. It breaks my heart knowing what these mammal's have to go through being stuck in these small fucking tanks. There is a website called http://www.freetillynow.org/ please go there and help out by signing the petition. Tilikum is the whale who killed the women in Orlando. He should not be in a fucking cage. He is kept there to this day because he breeds with the females. Most people do not know this but he did the same thing at a Sealand and Seawolrd purchased him. Seaworld knew he was a risk when they bought him. He is 2 times bigger then any other orca they have in Orlando. He actually killed a third person who had broke into the park overnight and they found the guy in his tank naked with his junk bitten off. He is just too big to be kept in the tank he is kept in. He is loved by the trainers and former staff want him released. He kills because he is frustrated. If you watch the movie you will get a better understanding what happened the day Dawn was killed by Tilikum.

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. If that song is all you know about Ian Dury and the Blockheads you might find this film as surprising as I did. Very clever man, three parts carny to one part punk. He managed to piss off more people in a significant way than the Sex Pistols ever dreamed of. Completely different view of the way music and society were changing in the seventies. The set up is a little contrived but the story is magic.

Last few films I saw :

Iron Man 3 : 4/10.

Watchable, but nothing else. After the attack on Stark's mansion, it all went downhill IMO. Uninteresting villain, and the weakest Marvel movie as of yet. I haven't been this bored by a big action movie since Transformers. Hell, compared to Transformers, IM3 is a masterpiece...

Man of Steel : 7.5/10

Some great ideas, boring villains, lot of destruction.

Django Unchained : 9/10

One of Tarantino's best IMO. A bit long maybe, but overall it was amazing.

Just watched this, and I got to say I really enjoyed it. They did a good job hitting the nail on the industry side of things, and even though I'm not a fan of that kind of music it was still a really good watch. The only thing, is it seemed to end with a settlement but it seemed from an interview I watched they won a counter-lawsuit. I wonder if there was some legal action after the documentary, or if they considered the resigning a win. That's the only thing that felt somewhat self-defeating is they still went with the label to release the album rather than truly say fuck it all.

I think Jared on his own would have said fuck it, because he seemed to be more for that than anything else. But people around him were saying go with the offer because it's the better option. I think one guy in there said to him something like there's a time to fight it and right now might not be the best time.
Since then though they've put out another album and toured over the world, would that have happened without resigning?
But yeah it's a good documentary showing the kind of crap that can happen with bands and their record labels.

How To Train Your Dragon - Very cute. It was the first time seeing it and I really liked it.

Awesome movie that'd make Tarantino proud... It almost felt like he owns this production. Think of it as Hostel/Fight Club female version. Even would make Ronda Rousey and the UFC women piss their pants on this one.

It'll also make Katniss from Hunger Games seemed salvageable in the fights on this too.. No bows and arrows bullshit just pure Cynthia Rothrock-ish MMA fights...

When Im bored and can't sleep I catch a random movie on the TV, so I saw Cabin Fever 2
Oh.My.God
That was sooo... odd. I mean the plot is nothing fantastic, A guy is infected and the fever reaches a town (mostly a high school) through the water and makes everybody loose skin and threw blood up and shit. THAT movie literally bought like at least 30 liters of fake blood, but first the movie pops out totally random scenes with unknown characters; and I mean one scene every 40 seconds. First a guy dyes in a coffee. Then a fat lady is making ponch WITH WATER (you'll guess what happens) and a blonde boy haves sex with her in the pool; she starts throwing up blood and while the guy is swimming out she drowns, and I DON'T KNOW WHY he falls in the water and it's an insta-kill (all in like 35 seconds). Then a cop goes to where the bottled water comes from and the guy who works there is shooted by cops who want to kil all the possible infected. Then our MOSTLY UNSEEN protagonist goes to a prom with his fat friend and the girl he loves is with a total asshole, of course the fat friend drinks ponch and after a fight and atuff she ends with the douche. Then GUESS WHAT, everybody (except the girl, the protagonist and the fatty) starts blooding out but police has arrived and locked the doors so they keep trapped in the gym, and everybody dyes.
The protagonist gets out of school with the girl (fatty dead). Douche tryes to kill him but gets killed, cops traps the protagonist and the girl scapes.
One really funny thing is that after all the blood and shit the movie had no budget so the movie ended with a minute long cartoon about how ONE GIRL is transmiting the fever to the free world.
Be adviced that all this is inserted between every kind of gore scenes that makes no sence at all.

Blue is the Warmest Color - French lesbo flick.. Erotic sex scenes are almost borderline on Human Centipede-ish eroticism.

Other than that, this one has LGBT boner level 10000000000000000 plus all over this movie.

This week I have seen two films for the first time, and four repeat viewings.

Firstly it was GoodFellas, a re-watch naturally. It's interesting how the film is perceived as a Mafiosa piece, but largely focuses on two gangsters who are both of partial Irish descent. Still, famous as the Hill story is, it's still a great film, the pacing, deliberate use of Nouvelle Vague cinematography techniques, and snappy dialogue sets it aside from other, more epic Mafia films. It was strange as well, I watched it a mere few hours before reading that Vincent Asaro had been arrested in relation to the JFK Airport heist, nearly forty years later.

After that, a back-to-back repeat session of New Zealand films Once Were Warriors and What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted?. Miserable films, but very adept in exploring modern Maori lifestyles in a suburban setting, and the effects alcoholism, domestic violence, and gangland activity have on the family unit.

On Tuesday, two I'd not seen before, the biopic Gotti - notable for featuring several cast members of The Sopranos before the show's launch, and an ageing Anthony Quinn - and Casino Royale. Gotti I enjoyed, standard behind-the-scenes exploration of Cosa Nostra, although Casino Royale seemed dull. I know it's an attempt to reintroduce Bond as a gritty, 21st Century agent, but it was a bit clunky to be honest, like Batman Begins without anything interesting happening.

Finally, last night I did another viewing of Carlito's Way, which is another grim journey, but featuring excellent acting and a nice subtle Pacino role where he's not barking at everyone.

I finally went to see Wolf of Wall Street the other day, which was awesome. I thought the performances were great, and it looked great as well. It was unexpectedly hilarious, too.

I also watched Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation, made in between the first two Godfather films. I wasn't sure of it for about the first half of the movie, but it got really good by the end, I'll have to go back through the whole thing again at some point. Coppola said it was influenced by Blowup from 1966, a film that I wanted to like way more than I did, it's a super cool idea. I love the idea of a person stumbling across a crime by accident, like Blue Velvet, as well.

Alterkaker66
02-08-2014, 02:47 PM
The Conversation was brilliant. You might want to watch Enemy of the State for comparison. The movie that snuck up on me (after watching it twice because it was one of the ex's favorites) was Dog Day Afternoon. If you can suspend your modern movie 'inner eye' and accept the period of the film it can make a lot of movies a better experience. I really enjoy old movies that way. The Wild Ones, Midnight Cowboy, even Easy Rider can feel cliched the first time you watch them unless you remember that they were the origins of the cliche!

I saw The Wolf of Wall Street with my father and his wife and all I can say is that we all loved it. It's witty, it's hilarious, it's thought-provoking and there's bewbs. Lots of them.

Although, one thing I don't understand is why everyone believes that "every next film released after The Wolf will be a Disney film". It wasn't that perverted or shocking. For a mainstream film, yes, there were a lot of random breasts flying around in the telly but nothing particularly disturbing. If anything, it was mostly amusing.

And that Lemmons scene. Oh My God. I have never pissed myself laughing like that. My father and I literally fell off the couch and couldn't catch a breath. And what really got me was that I knew he was picturing himself in similar predicaments as the main character found himself in. Ah, drugs...

It's hard to articulate most of my feelings on it. Simply, I adored it. There was definitely a theme of finality to it, being Miyazaki's last work. So worth seeing. Even if you don't like anime, most people like Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki. The animation was beautiful, as was the music.

Oh my fucking god. What a fucking movie. Just as awesome as the first one. Eva Green is the true scene stealer. She even makes Katniss fighting skills look like complete noob... Even Xerxes had his own chewing up the scenery.. But this movie felt like Empire Strikes Back style... Artemesia has a little bit of Vader attitude when she doesn't like failures in her ranks. Cutting heads and drowning them with stones in their chained arms... All in all, blood and gore plus her cleavage = boner level 90000000000.

Even had one bad-ass scene where she chops off the head of the Greek captive and kisses it like OTEP does when she kisses the pig's chopped head.

Queen Cersei Lanisster aka Gorgo had her own bad-ass moments but sadly, don't expect a catfight.. It was more of a man vs woman scenario.. Still, fucking awesome as it is.

300: Rise of an Empire

Saw this in IMAX 3D. Aside from the boobs scene there really isn't a reason to go the IMAX route.

This film feels more like a 3rd or 4rth sequel than a 1st. It makes the mistake of trying to do everything the first film did but it never turns out to be quite as good.

Literally, there are no aspects of this film that are better or worse than just ok.

I never really followed the whole Wiki Leaks thing, I just knew about them exposing shit on their website. So I really enjoyed this film and the ideas behind Wiki Leaks, but I agree with those who left the website/team over not removing names from the huge document leak because it would put people in danger. I think the idea for it all is great until people are in danger and then my opinion changes a bit.

Warning. DO NOT LEAVE the theater.. 2 ENDINGS in the half-end and the full ending credits roll.

Other than that, it was way better than the 1st Capt. America. And Nick Fury finally reveals removing his eye patch. Hah. Scarlett is still smokin hot as Black Widow.

Love the scene in the ending where the Tesseract was revealed in a hydra lab and it's supposed to be a sequel to avengers not just the 1st Capt. America plotline!

"Penguins have very much upset me!"


I absolutely loved this film despite having essentially zero interest in the story/film/concept of Mary Poppins beyond the fact that it involved Julie Andrews. This movie was so witty and depressing (both good things) and spectacularly Disney and 1960s (even better things), with lots of hidden historical accuracies and nods to those of us who are obsessed with old school Disney. It has actually very little to do with Mary Poppins and is much more biographical - if anything, and also, there is a giant stuffed mickey mouse.

Just got back from Noah. Granted, I'm a huge Aronofsky fan but I think this was a far better film than Black Swan. For a biblical story that isn't even that long, they really crafted a beautiful piece that tells a lot more than a "god destruction" plot. I'm pretty sure most people in the theater (especially being in Utah) completely missed the commentary about mankind being laid out.

Even though small, a favorite part was
the montage of the "creation" story juxtaposed against the time-lapsed big-bang/evolution, and also the images of Cain killing Abel transposed across generations of the history of war in the world. Mankind can only blame himself

Just came back from seeing Sabotage. Expendables style with a bit of Sons of Anarchy gang mentality DEA officers. Kick-ass movie. Some blood gore here and there and guts nailed to the ceiling and the only thing missing in this movie is the Beastie Boys song. They could've used it as the main theme throughout the film.

Mirielle Enos looks hottie as a fucking redhead bitch in this movie. I like redheads esp. if they're DEA officers. Think I found a new crush. I love how the characters are introduced with cool nicknames much like in Feast or Grindhouse. lol.

Antichrist - Disturbing, but not as soul-crushing as my friends made it out to be. Wouldn't watch again, though.
The Uninvited - Great movie, Emily Browning is a pretty decent actress.
The Loved Ones - This was fantastic! I never saw it originally because it was marketed ridiculously here in Australia (despite it being an Aussie movie), but I'm glad I've seen it now. Very fucked up.
Stranger Than Fiction- Already seen this one and I love it even more after watching it again.

The Hobbit : Desolation of Smaug

I've watched this twice this week and tonight I sat and watched all the extras with it. I love seeing how much work goes into making such a huge set of films, whilst one is filming they're preparing for the next or I think in one part of the extras whilst doing finishing touches to Desolation of Smaug they were also editing bits of the final film. It must be crazy to work on a project so big and three films together, seeing people just having a few minutes with Peter Jackson to discuss ideas and designs before he's gone because he's got a ton of other things to get through, I enjoy seeing all of that.

Actually good sci-fi movie. I can reference the plotline ranging from Her, to Terminator-ish Skynet dominance and Mass effect's storyline of Illusive Man wanting to control synthetics and co-existing with organics.. With a bit of Russell Crowe's Virtuosity style of villainy.. No wonder Manson attended the premiere with Johnny Depp. I think he liked it too.

It's been 9 yrs before this happened. Wow. It felt like watching The Hitcher this time around with car/truck chase scenes.. Still, I'm in the minority that I enjoy this just as much as the 1st one.

Gore Galore: Intestines, penis cut-off, torso ripped out,: TRIPLE CHECK.

Kangaroos being run over by the truck: Double Check.. Didn't see that one coming.. Poor Kangaroos.

Sniper Headshot splatters: Check.

Mick Taylor is officially Aussie's best movie serial killer in this one.. Relentless, one track mind of kill or be killed attitude, and being a survival predator is his game. It’s like Crocodile Dundee, High Tension, Texas Chain Saw and Elm Street all mixed into one insanely fun, yet dirty, grimy and vicious slasher massacre.

Metallica: Through the Never. The plotline just took a huuuge backseat as a random music video everytime Metallica plays the next song.. Best part was the Sandman when the pyro and stage collapses and James told the audience to stop and check the whole staff... Does that happen often in their concerts too? Cos, it's like Cunning Stunts Live on DVD as well. Similar accident during the Enter Sandman song... Damn.

In The Blood - Could've been a sequel to Haywire but it was all kinds of kick-ass style over storyline substance. The only twist of good wife vs bad guys, the stupid latino wanted her husband's bone marrow to treat his cancer AND Kill him afterwards for it.. I guess that's how it was titled that way.

Afflicted - REC meets Chronicle is what you get for this movie. The twist: Dude got infected by STD on some French chick. Twas good though.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 -More of the same and Electro looks like Palpatine and Manhattan's bastard lovechild. Didn't expect of what happens to Gwen in the final moments.. Another roller coaster action packed superhero flick you'd expect to enjoy this summer.

I recently saw Neighbors and The Quiet Ones. My mom came across some free passes, so that's why we went to see these.

Neighbors was.... stupid. It DID have funny moments... it's just a goofy movie. Nothing special :P A frat moves next to a couple with a young baby, "comedy" ensues ;)

The Quiet Ones is a horror movie. It was really LOUD... and most of the scares (especially initially) was just cranking the volume even LOUDER. It felt like a chore to have to sit through the damn thing at that volume lol. It did have an interesting story I think... A university professor enlists the help of three students to help him conduct an experiment on a young woman who is haunted by an evil spirit, but he's trying to prove it's not a spirit or anything but her own problems. It wasn't FANTASTIC, but it was ok, minus how loud it was.

--

I also saw the Blair Witch Project. Not a recent movie, but something I had been meaning to watch... did not like that one, either. I thought it was boring. I did get spooked near the end when they were exploring the house, because I was anticipating something scary to pop up... but naaah.

Saw Godzilla last night. It was alright for the effects, but way to Americanized which takes away from the original Japanese story. Carries a similar plot to the same regurgitated superhero films where Godzilla comes off as the hero and America is there to support. It will carry out through the summer as a big blockbuster, but will be as memorable as the Godzilla from the 90's.

Nah, it's slightly better than Roland's version of Jurassic Park-ish T-Rex Godzilla.. At least, this one resembles the 1950s version... Actually, in the 90s version Godzilla was more of antagonist rather than a hero, c'mon, he has babies that look like Raptors eating people. And, the army killed him for it.

Oculus - Very good horror flick that could also pass as a TV episode of Grimm of the evil magic mirror that makes people go ala The Crazies!

Although the ending was a bit sad for me.. Damn, the mirror even has tricks up its sleeve like for example the person who was there that the guy kills just isn't real and sometimes vice versa. It's like the mirror blurs the line of reality and fantasy where people either go psychopath or kill themselves by plucking out their teeth and body parts etc..

More like Spit on your Grave by way of Evil Dead with a dead Apache Indian warrior.. Unlikely ally for a girl who gets raped by redneck dudes who were also responsible for slaughtering Apache Indians back in the day.. Talk about doubling the thirst for vengeance.

The heroine really does a good job of making Katniss and Xena Warrior Princess looked fucking tame and pale in comparison to her combat fatality skills with gore effects that'll make every Mortal Kombat fan would love to see! She'd probably make Scorpion from MK totally proud of her decapatation of heads, intestines etc..

Hell, this is even more brutal than the fighting scenes of last of the mohicans when it comes to gory ass body counts in this one.

Mehh. I thought it was going to be another one of those teen angst drama movies but they threw into a World War 3 apocalypse scenario. The only plot twist you'll see here:

She falls in love with her fucking cousin and have sex!

Insidious Chapter 2: 4/10. Why? the 1st one had definitely a closure ending to it.. Very unnecessary sequel to continue with the hauntings.

Transformers: Age of Extinction - Movie was too long but was worth it with the debut of the Beast Wars crossover counterparts!! Plus, 100000000% less Shia!

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2RjGLxLpPPw/U0SD5liKzEI/AAAAAAAAIns/P7CF4jjUg4k/s1600/poster.jpg

Apparently, Black Widow from The Avengers was an alien in disguise all along looking for men to seduce them to her sex of doom! This movie is like ala Species (Natasha Henstridge) anyone? Damn, she's fucking hot naked still in one scene! We never get to see her alien form until the final moments. But she has a male companion, another alien btw, who's more like Terminator type of assassin of cleaning up her victims bodies and dispose of it.. She rarely speaks only when a stranger Scottish dude comes up to her and she does impersonate their accent.

Wanna know her true alien form? I-ROBOT + T-1000 + BLACK SLENDERMAN

And the way she kills men when it comes to seducing them is this quick cutscene of black screen where they get naked then as she walks away to lure them off. the man steps into a pile of BLACK WATER POOL THAT DISSOLVES THEIR BONES AND LIQUIDATES THEIR SKIN THEN PUT IN A CONVEYOR BELT TO BE BURNED. I dunno if that's the inside of a ship or hideout but the whole scenery of quick cutting to that part after dating men was almost like Stanley Kubrick or David Lynch would accomplish this trippy movie.

This movie felt like very serious yet watered down version of Natasha Henstridge's Species franchise. But still, I really enjoyed her fully naked scenes esp touching herself to experience what it feels to be human. Naked Scarlett Johansson is officially up there on my celebrity I'd bang list.

Batman: Assault on Arkham10/10. kick-ass anime movie.. With bits of nudity from Killer Frost and Harley, a few curses and a middle finger, very rare for it to be adult themed despite it's a cartoon..

Some of the villains seemed new to me: King Shark, Capt. Boomerang, and Black Spider.

I marked out when I found out Jennifer Hale's voicing Killer Frost on this one despite she even voiced her in the Injustice game. I just imagined Femshep's renegade attitude on Mass effect too! Hah.

Guardians of the Galaxy - The easter egg ending on it was a little bit unnecessary. Could've used more screentime for Thanos story too! Even though I'm not familiar with this franchise despite Thanos being the supervillain of all marvel heroes that I'm only familiar with, I'd say they're like Spaceballs/Serenity/Borderlands type of cartoony characters that you'd expect from this one. Esp. the 80s music and the blue aliens..

Other than that, Gamora looks like a puny yet athletic She-Hulk version. The raccoon almost stole the show. lol.

Watched this on Netflix recently, I'm not big on foreign films however this one was really damn good. I like how its edited and how the story is told. It doesn't feed the audience with pointless "2 years later" and whatnot. The story is a love epic that spans many years but the way its done is so good that you will always know that time has passed when the movie jumps further in time. My only complaint is that some of the sex scenes just last way too long. I understand they want to show how much they are in love but I feel like you could do that with just the chemistry these actresses have with one another. They deserve a fucking oscar for their performances however the Academy is too stubborn to admit that quality of this film just because of the sex scenes. Check it out if you have the time it's easily become a favorite.

The Shining meets Under The Skin. Why am I saying that? This is how it goes.

That one scene where Jack typewrites all work and no play makes jack a dull boy repetitiously. But in this one, it's the wife that's going nuts. Instead she writes her biography repetitively even the wedding day. The gore parts are minimal until the final act and the reveal of her true form much like Scarlett's alien character in Under The Skin.

Don't ever be thinking that the title itself is another one of those cheesy ass romantic flicks...

The Babadook - It's almost like a live version adaptation of Among The Sleep game and a mixture of Sinister!! But only better.. Even the monster resembled so much of the one in Among The Sleep. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 100% rating. Not bad for a low budgie Aussie horror flick.. That was totally unexpected.

Reason why I compared it to Among The Sleep is because The mom is the real monster or was it? Even tried killing her son in the final moments. And I was expecting the dead dad to be the monster but I guess either way, it was mommy who's the real monster and being abusive to the child after the dad died in a car accident. But the ending is a bit ridiculous.. Probably it's a metaphor of controlling her inner demons by feeding the "monster" with a bowl of worms then locks it up in the basement downstairs.

Go fucking see it. It's a perfect pre-Halloween scary movie! Well played, Australia!

9/10..

P.S. The video link I posted is also based on that short film "monster." Similar scenes but the monster is more hidden in the full version itself. Like I said, it's like Aussie's fresh new take on U.S. version of Sinister.

Johnny Got His Gun. At turns, despairing, hopeful,but then, at points even euphoric when he was finally able to communicate...

Tragic beyond belief. Poignant & powerful. First anti war novel, written 1939, I believe. Read the book, in addition to watching a DVD of the movie.

I heard horrible reviews about Annabelle, but will definitely want to see it.

Went to see Gone Girl last night.. love David Fincher. It was pretty fucked up and had the same sort of vibe The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo did, but not executed quite as well. Similar camera work and lighting I though. I also thought Reznor's work was better on the Dragon Tattoo movie. The story was pretty damn good. I didn't read the book so I wasn't expecting such a cliffhanger as an ending.

It restored my faith in action movies being more uncensored R-rated violence. Nail guns, impaled on a powerdrill to the skull, you name it. Despite I haven't watched the entire TV series it's based on, I'm still familiar with the intro theme. And it had a bit of Taxi Driver vibe chemistry between Equalizer and a teen prostitute. Sound familiar right? Better yet, it felt like a sequel to Man on Fire.

I watched it today, wasn't sure what to expect with it but for me I couldn't stop laughing at it. I really like the humour in the film and the amount of comments that just fly out and scenes that are just funny. I don't think I've ever seen James Franco in a comedy before but the way he delivers his lines and acts his scenes out I thought were great.

Might not be the best story ever, but I think the humour totally makes this film worth watching and for me it's one of the funniest I've seen this year. I'm going to have to watch it again.

I recently saw Foxcatcher, I know a film director and he visits my neck of the woods in the holidays. He tends to bring screener copies with him when he visits. Anyways enough shitty exposition.

The film is good...however it's the kinda movie you will never want to watch again. It emotionally drains you. The film just has this weird slow pace to it that really puts you on edge. If I could compare the films cinematography style I'd have to compare it slightly to how Kubrick filmed the Shining.

Steve Carell really REALLY impressed me I knew going in that he'd be in the movie and I did know it was him when he showed up but after that he just faded away and become John Du Pont. I mean this performance might be HIS performance the same way Heaths was the Joker or Daniel Day Lewis was Bill the Butcher. But I don't want to undersell Channing Tatum because if not for his performance half of this film wouldn't have worked so well. Everybody is on fucking point in this movie. But again I have to stress this movie is not a repeatable viewing type film nor is it enjoyable. The movie is certainly fascinating and intriguing though.

I give it a "Go see it" rating.

Saw this film today with my family and I have to say this movie is one of the best films I've seen all year. Before seeing this film that spot was filled graciously by Birdman which is an amazing film too. However this film blew that out of the water thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch's supremely nuanced performance of the late great Alan Turing. This performance will undoubtedly go down as one of his best performances and should pole vault him into the stratosphere of the acting world. I will go one step further and say that with this performance he has proven to me that he can be the next Daniel Day Lewis. Is that too bold a statement to make? Not for me because I truly believe this man is the best actor in the business at this very fucking second.

Viewers rating: Classic, must see.

This week I have re-watched The American, starring George Clooney. It's very enjoyable, although minimalist. Anyone expecting the grimy urban landscape of Leon, or traditional Italian gangland of The Sopranos might be in for a surprise, it's actually far more subtle and barren throughout. The locations are rural and beautiful, and although Clooney often seems soft-spoken and calm even in person, 'Jack' is a grey, stone-faced character with no immediate charm other than stoicism.

I also saw Transsiberian, which despite being a nice opportunity to watch Emily Mortimer for two hours, was similarly no barrel of laughs. The Hitchcockian paranoia and stark, Russian countryside are a nice setting for miserable domestic espionage. I enjoyed Woody Harrelson's hapless husband, and Mortimer's ethical struggle in the face of adversity. It also reminds us that Russian people are mental and not to be trusted. Same with the Spanish.

Last but not least, The Night Listener, featuring the late, lamented Robin Williams. In the interviews section for the film, he actually describes it as being an unofficial 'bookend' for One Hour Photo, which I would definitely use as an endorsement. It starts at a slow pace, and at each turn, when you think you've guessed what's going on in broadcaster Gabriel's peripheral vision, it alters ever so slightly, such is the nature of the whole narrative. The either/or strains are ambiguous and unanswered even at the close, which is far preferable to some saccharine 'All better now' ending. It starts miserable, and ends miserable. My kind of film.

Great movies all week, I would recommend them all.

The most adorable buddy robot movie ever. a bit like Johnny No.5/Robocop storyline with a bit of Avatar-ish finale. Almost felt like Die Antwoord dominated the screentime other than Chappie himself turning into a gangsta raging robot. Lots of LOL moments. Die Antwoord's music almost occupied half of the screentime during the funny moments of Chappie being gangsta violent with DA (Cookie Thumper, Baby's On Fire, Fatty Boom Boom) and Enter the Ninja the most epic song played during the finale moments of Chappie.

Poor Yolandi.. I cried my eyes out. :( Gotta love how Die Antwoord in the movie even have their alias names mentioned plus flaunting their music merchandises on their gangsta troops from orange jackets to Yolandi's pet rats and trademark shorts and sexy shirt on their concerts.

For those who hate Die Antwoord, I suggest you watch this movie. Sure, their music sucks to your personal tastes, but hey it's a funny yet entertaining next level Zef movie, mothafukkas. Don't blame me if you get one of their songs stuck in your head cos the 2nd half of the movie has their music hits blasting during the funny moments of Chappie turning into a ZEF GANGSTA BLING MOTHERFUKKA..

This isn't a recent one, but I watched Inglorious Basterds and I had to say it was pretty bad. As I expected of a Quentin Tarantino movie, there was lots of dialogue, which would have been alright but most of it was in German! That gets pretty old for a 2 1/2 hour movie quickly. Plus the dialogue dominated the movie, and there were little actions scenes, which I thought would have been the majority of the film. The "Basterds", a squad of rouge American Jew soldiers, led by Brad Pitt's character, should have gotten more screen time also, seeing as the movie IS named after them.

Anyways, overall, it was bad and I wouldn't recommend it as a Tarantino movie. With a bit more editing, it might have been bearable, but, alas, Tarantino disappoints in what should have been a great shoot'em up action flick.

I think Inglorious Basterds is a great film, it's totally up there as a top film for me.

I just watched REC 4 / Apocalypse . It carries on straight after REC 2, so instantly I loved the way this film started. It quickly goes off into its own film and I really liked it, for a 4th film I thought it might just be total shit but it isn't. There was really only one part I didn't totally like and that's right at the end... not the final scene... just the scene before a few credits roll. Probably would have been better left without that since this is supposed to be the final film. But if they ever plan for a 5, it's open enough to go somewhere with it.

I recently dug out my old VHS tapes and watched Gregg Araki's Nowhere and Richard Linklater's subUrbia. I really love the soundtracks to both films. They also both share a feeling of doom and nihilism. I really miss independent films of this era, those few years before the Millennium but post grunge.
Nowhere is much more fun and colorful, taking place in a hyper cool Los Angeles where everyone is seemingly bisexual and on drugs. The amount of celebrity cameos packed in, whether it's Kelly Bundy or Peter Brady or that one guy from Baywatch, makes it seem like we're in an alternate universe where everyone has quirky names like Dingbat or Cowboy or Dark. Sprinkled in here and there are pseudo philosophical tangents about the return of Christ and the cult like obsession with the end of days that a lot of society at that time was actually pretty much like. Anyway, fun film. There's a reptilian alien with a laser, Traci Lords and Shannon Doherty and Rose McGowan play 3 Valley girls, and the guys and girls are all pretty hot. Lots of sex and drugs and rock n roll. MM's "Kiddie Grinder" is even in it.

subUrbia was just kinda depressing, but I love it. Plus they show Giovanni Ribisi's penis. His character Jeff was really cute, I'd probably date him or whatever. I had a crush on him when I saw it. Oh, and Parker Posey is in it and she's just great.

Clown - Eli Roth's film almost felt like a reboot of Pennywise from IT but felt like a Santa Clause moment where the guy gets to wear clown suit and make up yet it doesn't come off much like Tim Allen's Santa Clause character going to the same phase. And his final form has Slipknot's Shawn the Clown written all over it..

Slightly better than the first. It felt like Attack of the Clones.. And Ultron is very terminator-esque and Megatron-ish vibe to it.. As for Jarvis' final form, The Vision, he's more like Marvel's Martian Manhunter meets Gill from SF..

Scarlet Witch needs more character development though.. And I didn't expect a Black Widow/Hulk lovestory.. I was expecting a heel turn from her cos in the comics, she betrayed Hulk when she revealed his identity to Loki and company called the Liberators. I think that's the title. Also, in the comics after her betrayal on Avengers, hawkeye later killed her while in a hospital bed.

Watched two films for the first time today. The first one is a big shocker in terms of I probably should have seen it already, it was, Mad Max. I know I can't believe I hadn't seen it either. In preparation for Fury Road which comes out this Friday I figured I'd watch them all. My opinion on the first film is it's a good baseline for where this series goes. My only criticism is that it feels a bit too slow in places and the music score is sometimes laughable. Other than that though Mel pulls out a stellar performance.

Second film I watched was Ghost World, the other day when I was doing some cleaning around the house the TV was on and I caught a glimpse of a scene from it. I saw that Steve Buscemi was in it and I was like "Well I gotta watch this at some point" so I found out when it was airing again and recorded. Gotta say it was a nice film. I like quirky films and it fit the bill. I would recommend both of these films to anyone, peace.

I've seen Age of Ultron twice now. Once in 3D IMAX and once in 2D and my opinion is still much the same.

This movie has some excellent scenes but overall it is not put together very well and it's largely due to the editing. People who are saying this one is better than the first are out of their minds, so far as I can tell.

Of course that doesn't mean it's a bad movie. It's just good, not great.

There are really obvious problems with the lack of character development in Ultron. He just goes from 0 to killer robot in less than a scene and for all of that rush he doesn't even seem that menacing. Bizarrely enough he actually spends a lot of the time trying to be likable. It's an interesting choice if they intended to make him a little schizophrenic but we need to see that develop. His program should have started off very simple and then learned from direct interactions with the various characters over the course of a few scenes until his learning developed at an exponential rate and there was some actual concrete event that triggered his "humanity must be wiped out for peace" protocol. - In fact, I think that if something had gone wrong for the team right in the first scene, say for instance an innocent life had to be sacrificed in order to finish the mission and save others, then that could have been a weight on the team and would have given some motivation behind the decision to create Ultron. Further more, Ultron's learning of this event could be what eventually sets him off because the Avenger's would have failed.

There are obviously missing scenes. Like VERY obviously missing scenes. There are several moments in the film where things were quite obviously explained in detail in a scene that was cut and then glossed over and/or hurriedly rehashed in others to make up for it. A lot of things weren't explained very well because of it. Being someone that knows the comics moderately well I could fill in the blanks somewhat but most people I've spoken to just felt like "I'm not sure why this happened or who this was supposed to be but I just went along for the ride." Ironically, most films could stand to be shorter but this one really could have used another 20-25 mins.

Finally, this really should have been darker. I get that Disney owns the studio and Marvel is very consciously trying not to be DC serious but come on... Ultron didn't even feel like a threat. At the end of the film he's apparently in a sadistic, homocidal rage and trying to take everyone down with him and he's dropping silly one liners. The fuck is that? The Hulk killed more people in this movie than Ultron did. Not to mention the weird Super Shredder design he decides to go with at the end of the movie.

Honestly, I thought the first film was one of the few really good popcorn team up blockbusters we've had in forever. Everything about that movie is fun and heart. This one had those in doses but nothing really worked together and it seems like any coherent vision was watered down to appease a committee.

Whereas I'd give the first film a 9/10, Age of Average gets a 7.

Project Almanac (2014)

I thought this was a really good film, and well made. Doesn't go overboard like most hand-held cam-era movies. Had a good ending. I recommend it. ****

American Mary (2014)

I thought for a film i have never heard of, and the fact that it came out last year,would be another never-hit-theatre movie, but it isn't. I like tge dramatic changes she goes through from one profession to another. From a practicing surgeon to a body modifications artist. Thought there could have been more things she would have to do, macabre things, but it was overall a ***1/2 movie. I recommend. It was right up my alley of horrors.

American Psycho (2000)

I have been meaning to see this for a long time, yet never got around to it. I absolutely love how amazing of an actor Christian Bale is in this messed up movie. He plays this business man who, at first, is a secretly a psycho. Psycho, as in if anyone has a better lookig business card or a "slightly better haircut" than his (Actual quotes), if he becomes jealous in any sort of way, he will kill then. Such as inviting them over to his apartment, drugging them, blabber about a album as he puts on a raincoat, and smashes a axe in their head. Sick. And the fact that he works out to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and quotes Ed Gein, is just sick. I love this movie. Highly recommended. *****

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

I have never seen the orginal Texas Chainsaw and i decided i needed to see it. I always see remakes before i see the original (Not on purpose) , and when i watched this, i was amazed. One actress was tramatized by this film. For a horror being filmed in the early 70's, this still scares me. Just as the remake(s), or even more. This film is so raw that it makes you believe that it is happening right in front of your eyes. So raw, you might even consider it as a snuff film. Sadly, the sequel "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" (in particular) ruined the power and name of the reputation of the first. And it was by the same director. More like a "Fuck You" film. Anyway, totally recommended for them Old School horror fans. *****

It Follows is a new and fresh horror that i feel we needed. It has so much suspense, and there are really intense scenes that make your heart beat out of your chest. The score for this was amazing, by Disasterpeace, and it has this John Carpenter 80's retro sound to it that i really like. The movie itself was inspired by the brilliant John Carpenter's HalloweeN. I like this movie a lot, although i was expecting something a little different than what i was given, but i still felt pleased and happy with it. I would recommend, but like all movies, watch the trailers first. I rate ****.

I totally agree with this. For some reason I feel like there's something about old, outdated, or poorly produced horror films that make them even better. The vintage aesthetic and cheap or sleazy feel that they have make it even more unnerving, uncomfortable, and unfamiliar, which is so innately creepy.

I'm gonna start this review with a bold statement. This is the best action movie I have seen in a decade, no joke. The film is filled to the brim with nonstop action with some of the best stuntwork and practical effects I've seen in a while. When the explosions happen you feel it. When Max or Furiosa get knee deep in the figurative shit, you REALLY feel it. It knows when to make our heroes vulnerable. The plot is basic enough to get the ball rolling. Furiosa played by Charlize Theron is taking a "War Rig" as they call it to one of gas towns. However she actually takes Immortan Joes prized brides, he's the tyrannical leader of this faction of bandits. So that's the basis of how everything goes wrong. The movie is her trying to escape and get to a better place and save their lives. Max meanwhile has been captured by the same War Party lead by Immortan Joe. That is all I will say without getting into SPOILERS. It's an escort mission, and a beastly one at that.

The action is as intense as Speed and as equally high-octane-crazy as the other Road Warrior flicks. Think of Fallout meets Borderlands and yes I know those games were inspired by the Max series but the comparison is justified in this film more than ever. So let me get down to brass tax. Should you see this movie with your hard earned money? Wholeheartedly a motherfucking yes. This movie deserves a good earning at the box office. I'm sure it'll do decent but I really hope that word of mouth saves this film from being another Edge of Tomorrow. We all know that Avengers and Pitch Perfect 2 are gonna be raking in the most moolah but hopefully just hopefully enough peeps see this film to warrant a sequel. This is a reboot done right and it deserves some more tales told by the great George Miller because he knows this universe he created so well.

Hell if it does half as good or a bit better than John Wick that'll be good enough for me. John Wick barely edged itself out of being a total box office failure thankfully because of the good word of mouth it got. That film was great and shot beautifully with REAL stunts. The directors of that film understood how to frame and compose an action movie. Same goes for this film, most of the shit you see actually happens before your eyes. Is there CGI? Yes. Is there some green screen here and there? Yes. However it is used properly and not abused at all. Anyways I am done sucking this films dick go and see it

As for Mad Max Fury Road, dialogue is terrible. No catchphrases from Max.. He looks bored. But the action scenes that have Michael Baysplosions all over it make up for it. I almost got bored.. And I fail to see the whole appeal of what makes Mad Max special. I guess it's the road warrior outfits and Death Race cars I guess.

That was a brilliant movie saw it when debuted. I went in with an ulterior motive though mainly because both Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac are in Force Awakens. So I wanted see their on screen chemistry. To elaborate a bit I loved that the film had a very Kubrick vibe to it. Also Oscar as always gave a brilliant performance I went from hating him to liking him to hating him to liking him again. Very good nuanced performance from him.

Jurassic World

Rating: Must see.

Let me start off by giving some perspective, Jurassic Park was the film that made me go "I want to make movies" that film took me to a place I never thought could be witnessed by anyone. Dinosaurs were real, flesh and blood. Tooth and jaw. It was glorious and that film is the sole reason I want to be a film maker. Skip to Jurassic Park 3, I'm sitting in the cinema not expecting much but being hopeful nonetheless because this franchise is close to my heart. The opening of that film set the tone for the film and that tone was....Excrement.

Anyways lets get to Jurassic World, this film I went in with even lower expectations in fact I was almost certain I was going to hate this film because each sequel after the first film never justified themselves for being a sequel. But my opinion slowly changed. For one the film was sold out. I have never been to a sold out film ever. Not only that but the line wrapped around the inside of the Cinema towards the ticket booth. I was flabbergasted. Once me and my friends got our seats we just were completely taken away with the whole situation. I couldn't believe this many people were here wanting to see this film. Once it began all my reservations were gone. I became 6 years old again and I lost my shit.

This film is the first film I can say that is worthy of being called a sequel. It goes places that are familiar but new at the same time and it respects its heritage, whereas JP3 shat on the heritage completely. I don't want to give away anything at all but I will say this. If you loved the ending sequence of Jurassic Park you're gonna love this one even more. It blows that scene out of the water...literally. Anyways go see it.

Jurassic World

2.5/5

...Yeah, not good.

Every character except for Pratt was almost intentionally unlikable.

Weaponized raptors?

A Genetically modified plot device?

The same - military wants (powerful force of nature) used as a weapon - trope we've seen hundreds of times only played much much better and actually earned?

Bringing back the head scientist from the original film only to turn him into essentially a Bond villain whose motives are never really explained and who is never even seen or heard from again?

Good actors that deliver terrible performances because of the bad writing and reductive direction?

Yeah, not as good as people are making it out to be. By far.

I audibly groaned at least 6 times.

Jurassic World


Here are several things that allowed me to thoroughly enjoy it. As someone who is a full grown adult now, who saw the original Jurassic Park in theaters as a child, I had to abandon nostalgia. It's fantasy. It's not intended to portray reality. It's science fiction. So I'll try not to go on a harangue about all of the things I hate that other people hate about this movie. I've already done that in "Hate Four". Again, abandoning nostalgia. Knowing this was not Jurassic Park, but rather a reinvigorated new direction for the franchise as the park had actually opened. This made it much more exciting.

Also, you have to realize that this movie was intended for all audiences to be able to be entertained by. Most of these types of disaster movies and Sci Fi movies in general do have trite jokes and phrases. Again, this movie wasn't intended to be realistic nor contain a very complex script. It didn't require it. That was something that was restated throughout the movie. The Dinosaurs have gotten boring, so they needed to create a monster to bring in more profits. It's hard to totally satisfy people anymore. People get easily bored and disappointed. That was the subtext of the ENTIRE movie. And that's where things went horrifically wrong. It was to be expected. It's.....a disaster movie.

It's a movie about everything that can go wrong with science and greed for our own amusement. The lack of respect for nature and the natural order of things and how wrong things can go when we don't respect that. It resonated throughout the entire first film. It brought that back. They are genetically engineered theme park monsters. What I loved about this movie is the interpersonal relationship that Owen had with the Velociraptors. That and how the villainous Dinosaurs in the first three movies became the hero's. There were so many references to the first three Jurassic Park movies. I personally think Jurassic Park III was unnecessary. It was a cash grab in my opinion. This movie exceeded my expectations going into it. It showed a real world scenario of a fully functional park full of people who are there to go see creatures that they do not understand and not just a team of specialists going to inspect, tour and eventually come to the inevitable conclusion that this was a bad idea. Of course it is, but this really happened, and it happened while the park was up and fully operational.

As for using the Dinosaurs in a possible sequel as military assets. I see no problem with this. Why? How many movies do we have, or have we seen, that use AI Robots and advanced other races/species to use for action? It's ridiculous and that's the entire point. Where Jurassic Park II was going to use the animals from Site B to open a park in San Diego, it was halted when the T-Rex broke out of containment and went on a city wide rampage before being sent back to the island with the infant. With the possible sequel(s) this will provide even more chaos. Dinosaurs running amok everywhere in non controlled environments. More than just one who escaped a cargo hold on a ship. No, this has potential. Again, it's fantasy. It's entertainment and I fully support it even if some people find it cheesy. There are flaws in it, yes. But there are flaws in any type of film that defies what is possible in reality.

I think that if there is a Jurassic World 2 that it will accomplish what the Jurassic Park sequels could not. As for the CG, I don't mind it. That would be like me saying that I hate cartoons because they aren't "real" enough for me lol. All in all, this was a great movie! I'm not going to rate it because I love Dinosaurs, and yes, Dinosaurs are enough for me.....even if they aren't real anymore, extinct and just in the movies. ...For my own amusement. It's not an educational documentary. Go see it!

Terminator Geny-fucking-stupid-title

Rating: Dogshit.

I can't believe what I witnessed, this might be the worst one since Salvation and let me be clear here there are some good moments in this movie but it is hampered by absolutely terrible dialogue and horrible horrible characterization. Emilia Clarke delivers very hamfisted almost embarrassingly dumb lines. Jai Courtney once again portrays a monotone dumb ass. Arnold is the only saving grace for this film and even the script managed ruin his bits slightly.

The idea of the story is great I love what could have been had it been pulled off properly. It's a damn good idea and premise. However the movie does not do the plot justice at all and it just chugs along at a boring pace. The biggest complaint I have is the score. This score removes all tension from the film I never once felt tension at all. The score sounds like its from a bad TV show. The special effects are decent but not good enough to be Termi-fucking-nator. Suffice it say I felt like screaming "BETRAYAL!!!!! If you see this film go in with an open mind don't go into with the mindset you will hate it. Because there are some good moments in this film but it's just so sad that this sucks.

Watched this today and I have to say, I really wish this film got made. It may have been weird, strange, and outright not what you'd expect but that is why it's so fascinating. From having Braniac and Lex Luthor merging into one being. Having Superman die at the hands of a face morphing Doomsday to then being regenerated by pre-destroyed Kryptonian robot in the form of a living suit. I mean this film reeks of creativity and then to top it all off. Nicolas Cage as Superman, I think it would have been a fucking strange but wonderful movie. Here's the first ten minutes of the documentary. If I have piqued your interest in the slightest try and find a digital copy somewhere. It's a very well put together documentary.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Probably my all time favorite movie. "I know now why you cry." Such a badass movie.

The Amazing SpiderMan (2012). I like this one a whole lot more than the 2002 movie. This one was badass.

I REALLY enjoyed that film. I think I saw it in theaters about 3 times. I also enjoyed it more than the 2002 one. The Amazing Spiderman had a fun vibe to it while also being a badass flick. I've yet to watch the sequel though, I keep meaning to watch it.

Stake Land

Nice twist on the zombie apocalypse formula where people don't actually hate each other and are willing to be human beings.

Watched Tomie (1999), one of nine (!) movies about this character created by Junji Ito, one sick motherfucker. I read the manga ocassionally but I am terrible to keep up with it so I'm not really sure if the plots will follow the same storylines but I was literally creeped out how much the actress resembles the drawing:

The film itself is cookie cutter late 90's japanese horror with a bitching awesome drone soundtrack

Straight Outta Compton

My rating: Pretty darn good.

Review: The film covers the early beginnings of the formation of N.W.A. then follows them through to the demise of the rap group and ending basically with E's death. I think the first two acts of the film are great, like really fucking good. However once it gets passed that and into the third act it really kinda feels haphazard. Is it cool to see Snoop and Pac? Yeah I guess so but it just seems like fan service (side note though, the guy that plays Pac...jesus it's like he's back from the dead) The only part of the third act that was good was when E got diagnosed with HIV because then the drama came back and the guy that play's E did a damn good job. The scene when he finds out he's positive for HIV is some damn good fucking acting.

Overall I'd say this is a pretty decent biopic. It glosses over some of the dirtier aspects of their past and I think that's mainly because Dre and Cube produced it. The beef between E and Dre was bigger than what the film portrayed. However all that matters is near E's end they buried the hatchet and rekindled their friendship so I guess Dre wanted the film to just focus as little on that stuff and just revere his dear departed brother. Definitely see it if you are interested in the history of how N.W.A. changed music forever. Without them there'd be no Snoop or Pac. They made hip hop real and meaningful. Unfortunately it seems like that is gone somewhat nowadays but that's unrelated. it was definitely an enjoyable flick I'd watch it again for sure. Worth the price of admission.

I can't really bring myself to watch most biopics and this doesn't even looks like it could be artistically intriguing like The Runaways which was an increadibly shitty movie already.

I want to drink some Gin & watch Straight outta Compton ! ! But .. I probably won't. I For Years and Years I was Close Friends with the management at the local Theatre & have seen a massive amount of movies for free. A lot of times bringing BoOze in there too .. I have gave that whole place a 6 month break though .. I don't see near as much Movin' Pictures as I used too , ... More Reading actually ! B.t.w. I Watched The Runaways because I like that Rock n Roll Group , I had heard it featured Elvis Aaron Presley's Grand daughter , It was Directed by Floria Sigismondi ( Directed Tourniquet ) annnndd I have a fetish for Ladies that play with Guitars. I Loved it. Cheers' (23)

Watched "What We Do In The Shadows" last night...It is a film that is based around a reality show of vampires. A few laughs here and there because it is so "B" rated and I love shit like that. They did a damn good job on the makeup of the character who looks like "Nosferatu". I am heading to the theater to catch a few new flicks this week.

I watched The Human Centipede 2. One of the sickest films I've seen. Surgical scenes gross me out and I'm still wondering why I even watched it. The saw and hostel films are tolerable, but not this one. The good part is that I loved it in black and white. It definitely added something eerie to it...especially the garage scenes.
