The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

4 stars

4 stars says it for me. I've felt that these movies have been pretty well done for what they are and are entertaining.

Depressing at times but very believable, there are governments on this planet right now that treat their citizens the way Snow does.

Looking forward to the conclusion. (+5 tp)

Anyone see John Wick?

Looks good... commercial/style reminds me of classic Chow Yun Fat, double Berretta in hand, shoot'em up hong kong style movie.

Zero Dark Thirty

4 stars

A gripping action adventure based on the attempts to find and ulitmately kill the world's most wanted man: Osama Bin Laden. Superbly directed and paced, and most of all the subject matter is fascinating. The insight into the post 9/11 world which has been shaping everything for the past 15 years is so revealing. And the final raid is something you just cannot take your eyes off of.

I do have a few criticisms of the movie though. The main character, which is obviously an amalgamation of many analysts is very boring and unrealistic. She's too simple and too single minded.

Also, it's really hard to track down how the filmmakers got their information. It surely *feels* real, but a lot of the information that is used to find Abu Ahmed and thus Bin Laden is in contradiction to what has been reported; that the detainee interrogation led to almost no relevant information. So while the movie feels real, I'm not sure that it actually is.

Still a memorable, exciting and well made movie that will challenge you far after the viewing. (+5 tp)

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

3.5 stars

over all very good.

got a bit repetitive but not enough to make you want to turn it off.

seemed so unlikely at the end. that creature would have known where they were since they lost the "power"

either way movie was certainly not a let-down, very good watch. (+2 tp)

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

5 stars

Excellent.

I remember being interested in the movie despite souring on Tom Cruise, it just was released at an inopportune time and obviously wasn't promoted well enough. (+5 tp)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

4.5 stars

Very good.

This had some feel and theme of James Bond, Enemy at the Gates, Matrix, and other movies that I like.

Going in I knew that there would still be unresolved items but the time spent was well worth it and there was a ton of tension towards the end. I figured out the twist for this installment (I haven't read the books) but it was still very good.

Big Hero 6

4 stars

Quite good. I actually teared up twice during this movie.

Baymax (the michellin man looking like character) is hilarious. If you have small kids I figure they'll love it and you'll enjoy it too. (+5 tp)

Guardians of the galaxy was really fun. You will like it. Very good sense of hunor and much less serious than other comic movies, which was a welcome change

I thought I remember Stan Lee bartering with an alien hooker on one of the worlds.

My son was wondering why Stan Lee wasn't in GOTG and I guessed that he has nothing to do with that comic.

is that correct? Disney does that one?

We have seen Stan in pretty much every marvel movie with a cameo.

I haven't seen GOTG yet, I'll get it on rental, everybody says they liked it.

The Hunt For Red October

5 stars

With Cold War 2.0 rapidly encroaching, I thought I had better brush up on some Cold War epics, and you generally don't get more accurate than Tom Clancy. I hadn't seen this since its release, and was I in for a treat.

John McTiernan, a forgotten director now, puts out yet another exciting, fast moving and intelligent thriller. The rest of the cast is nothing less than Stellar, with two of my personal favorites in Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin putting in outstanding performances, as well as champs like Scott Glenn and even bit players like James Earl Jones, Jeffrey Jones and Stellan Skarsgård matching them.

The story itself is fascinating, and while a period piece, does not come off dated at all. The movie whips along despite a 2 hour running time, and delivers thrills as well as twists constantly, yet interweaves these with an intelligent spy story.

Technical accuracy is nothing short of amazing, and even with no CGI, it feels real at every step. Even the Russian choral music is cool, which has been copied in other movies such as Golden Eye

You really don't get better than this movie for entertainment and brains. A must watch if you haven't seen it. (+5 tp)

City of God

4.5 stars

Holy crap this movie is just astonishing. It is very difficult to watch at points because of the child on child violence and that's why I don't give it full 5 stars (I reserve that for films I will watch repeatedly). If Danny Boyle didn't take his ideas for Slumdog Millionaire from this I will eat my frimbazelin' hat (+5 tp)
