Unbreakable, with Bruce Willis. Awesome film! A very unique super-hero movie. 8/10.

"A Woman, A Gun and A Noodle Shop" 8/10 - Chinese remake of the Coen brothers' 1985 film Blood Simple. Cool perspective on the original story. Major components aren't different, but the director ___ made a few tweaks to fulfill his vision of the story. Definitely recommend giving it a watch, esp if you're a Coen Bros fan.




"Welcome to the Rileys" 7/10 - I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The cast is awesome- James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo are always on point. Cool to see Melissa in a performance pre The Fighter. Some people like to hate on Kristen Stewart. I get that, I'm not a Twilight fan either. If you can put that aside, I think you'll like her in the film. I thought she did a great job.

I love Kristen Stewart. Couldn't hate on her at all

I saw Biutiful today. Difficult film to give a numerical rating to but I'd pluck for 6 or 7. Javier Bardem's a great actor and Innaritu's a great filmmaker, but somewhere along the line someone needs to work harder on the storytelling.

Step Up 3 - The dances were cool. The story was interesting. The main actor, sucked.

Just back from Rabbit Hole.

Decent film but a better performance than the film as a whole probably deserved. 7/10

My two cents. I prefer movies to television series (with few exceptions, like Sons of Anarchy & 24). And. The forum is what was the last MOVIE you watched and RATE it. Hope no one minds me changing the flow a bit. All the below were watched on a 65", almost all in BluRay with surround sound (I avoid theaters unless it is a special movie occurrence).

Well... what we have watched the past two weeks...

First a backstory: I stumbled upon HBO's True Blood from our local library (season 1). Started watching the first DVD, then stopped, because I knew my wife would love the series and we could watch together. We did. She became addicted. Bought season two on BluRay (discounted -- Xmas price as a present) and had a friend record season 3 on HD during marathon last month. 36 hours of story later -- would make a long movie; with several interruptions lasting night time(s), NFL & OSU games and working days.

Gave the series 10 out of 10. Acting, story, production values, casting, special FX -- hey I learned a lot on the proper way to do night shots from watching THIS series (indoor sets and big bank roll). Excuse for me including a series & going off topic with True Blood.

MOVIES in the past two weeks?

We also watched Get Me To The Greek in BluRay -- I found it a weak comedy 2/10
Re-watched The Tomb (on instant Queue -- NetFlix) was better the first time viewed in 1983 (new technology in FX has spoiled me) & the book by F Paul Wilson (Repairman Jack) is better. 3/10
Toy Story 3 9/10
How To Train Your Dragon 7/10
The Expendables 5/10
Knight and Day 4/10

I watch a lot of movies every week -- read a lot of books and write/rewrite daily. It is what I do when there is snow on the ground and we get those Netflix BluRays pretty quick (always something to see).

I love Zhang Yimou and had the honor of meeting him once at Sundance when they screened Not One Less there.

I did not catch this because it lasted about a week in ATL and I had read some scathing reviews that gave me a little pause.

I'll definitely check for it.

The King's Speech 8/10

Thought it was a simple yet solid movie with good performances by the leads.

Tamara Drewe. 8/10 - The film is a rather witty British comedy on love and sex. The title character Tamara Drewe is played by the very beautiful Gemma Arterton. Not many other notable appearances, but all of the characters are hilarious - especially the two teenage girls. The film is based on a comic strip/graphic novel by the same title. That comic strip was regarded as a modern reworking on Thomas Hardy's novel "Far from the Madding Crowd."

Didn't really have any expectations going into it and I ended up thoroughly enjoying it.
