    I don't know why anyone would've expected Disney's Battle Royale to be good.

    I doubt you'll feel that way about McConaughey after watching Killer Joe. Dude is a fucking psychopath.

    Because of all the praise that was heaped on it by critics.

    Watched Irreversible and I saw the Devil the other day.

    I thought Irreversible was decent though the spinning camera used during the first twenty minutes made me feel nauseous. I want to think that portraying the events in reverse chronological order was more than a gimmick. Maybe the director showed the events before the tragedy last to make the dramatic irony fill the audience with depressed resignation rather than anger at the subsequent events. Also, I think that the early scene where Pierre brutally finishes off the Tapeworm (spoiler:) would have made the rather intense scene comedic if the audience knew that he had got the wrong fucking guy.I liked this twist though, the fact that they didn't get the real Tapeworm just shows that their actions were worth nothing, it was impossible for the protagonists to reverse what had already happened. Also, their success would have provided the viewer with a sense of closure which wouldn't have gone well with the tone the film was aiming for.

    I saw the Devil is worth watching too. It doesn't have much in the way of a plot but there are various themes that it tries to portray.

    Watched The Hunger Games too recently. Seems like just a cash-in made quickly so it could be released while the books were still popular.

    Just watched The Amazing Spiderman. It wasn't bad, but I'm also not sure I enjoyed it much. Nothing really wrong with it, it just didn't affect me much one way or the other (which I guess means it was better than the older Spiderman movies; those annoyed me a great deal).

    I saw Platoon and didn't really enjoy it. Aside from Dafoe, I thought the acting was varying from bland to terrible (especially Charlie Sheen's bleh). And maybe I cought the movie too late, but its themes ideas didn't quite grab/move me as much as the movie hoped they would.

    ..... alright, so maybe I exaggarate a little and it wasn't that great of a movie :|

    It seems it's still difficult to capture the true spiderman vibe on screen, but they're getting there slowly.

    Alright, dude did a pretty good job.

    Not sure what to think of the movie though and was up with the ending, things went crazy.

    Completely agreed. Spiderman 2 is brilliant. I was rewatching bits of it last night. I can't believe somewhat younger me used to be so oblivious to giant ham.

    I'm glad you thought ol' Matthew did a good job. i really don't like him at all but after killer joe, i doubt he'll keep up that kind of performance as i'm sure the director is mostly responsible for that. and i liked the ending, it was crazy and it left the last part open so you can kinda imagine for yourself what happened. i've always liked that kind of ending.

    Yellowbrickroad - I probably wouldn't have even noticed this, given its 2-star rating on Netflix, but I saw an article about it somewhere and the frequent comments on how "unsettling" it was made me curious. It lifts a lot of elements - and atmosphere - from House of Leaves, but ultimately falls well short of that superior horror tale. It started out well enough, with characters and plot surprisingly palpable for a horror movie, but whether due to lack of funding, experience or writing prowess ends up circling vaguely in on its unsatisfying conclusion. I usually don't mind a slow burn, but I expect some kind of payoff at the end... Yellowbrickroad just doesn't deliver. Would not recommend.

    This was a good movie, almost as good as the book, though i enjoyed the book much more. the ending is very good and it was just better to read it than to see it i guess.

    It was a good movie but a bit predictable.

    Just saw Mr. Bond's latest outing, Skyfall at the cinema and I was very impressed. It's the best of the Daniel Craig Bond films so far, in my opinion.

    Javier Bardem is a terrific villain, and there are great performances all round from the cast. Won't say any more for risk of spoilers, but if you were at all disappointed with Quantum of Solace, this should set things right.
