Just saw Looper and Lawless. Both were really good. was kind of hoping Looper would've been a bit better but overall i can't complain. Lawless was great though i think. I live in an area of the world where people still make white lightnin' (moonshine) and it was a very interesting movie. Guy Pearce was excellent, i really think he an underrated actor, in his role.
Watched Let the Right One In which was very, very excellent. Great acting, beautiful cinematography, good pacing, interesting twists.
I'm a huge David Lynch fan. I sat all the way through The Holy Mountain. I thought Pi and Being John Malkovich were brilliant... But I have to hand it to Joseph Kahn, Detention is hands-down the weirdest movie I've ever seen. Much like Cabin in the Woods, the best comparisons I can come up with stem from the films it noddingly apes, but it's probably best to just go in blind. It's surprisingly brilliant, considering the only other movie the director has made to date was the legendarily awful Torque.
Lawless@ I liked it.
Tom Hardy is going to play Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell movie xD
Snow White and the Huntsman - I fell asleep yet again, around when the dwarves showed up. Early onset old age, methinks.
Finally got to see Skyfall and not a moment too late! (Spoilers)
Overall, I enjoyed it. That said, I took issue with quite a few things in it, from unnecessary moments (he gets shot, falls a considerable way down into hard water and then off a waterfall??? Oh, and the KEYBOARD=HACKING, amongst others) to a few plot-holes. I absolutely loved the nods to Bond's heritage and how this was used, joked about or whatever (but those bastards for destroying the DB5. Those utter, utter bastards). That said, I found the first half lacking somehow. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the second half was much better. The theme song and credits, whilst matching up nicely, I didn't enjoy either. I liked the symbolism, but it just felt way too HERE IS SYMBOLISM AND LOTS OF COLOURS. When compared to Casino Royale (apt considering the same guy did both) I felt there was just a bit too much going on and that whilst CR's had less symbolism in it, what it did have it did amazingly. The film also suffered from blue and orange saturation a few too many times.
So yes, a good film, a good Bond film, but I feel that Casino Royale is still stronger. It seemed more consistent and even if it was aping off Bourne, it still felt like Bond.
Just saw Argo, it was pretty good. Affleck seems to be a competent director.
Watched "God Bless America". It is a damn good movie IMO. Also watched Madagascar 2 (found boring) and Monty Python and the Holy grail
The Dark Knight Rises: Christian Bale's Batman voice reaches unheard of levels of absurdity.
I just wish he'd stop using it when everyone involved in the conversation knows who he is.
I think I'm the only one in the world who understood (And loved) Bane's voice throughout, word for word.
@Serenegoose, That's true I guess, with the exception of Rorschach which had wavy speech bubbles to indicate his tone and way of talking.
Anyways, Just watched Brave.
It was a bit different than expected but a very enjoyable movie nonetheless.
I just watched "Cocaine Cowboys" the documentary that inspired the devs of Hotline Miami (they said so on a video commentary). It's about (you guessed it) the colombian drug cartel in Miami in the early 80's. Pretty interesting stuff.
