So ok, I was very surprised Guardians come out good. But Deadpool? I can't see any way a movie about a wise cracking, three stooges loving assassin could come out decent.

American Hustle

3.5 stars

I completely agree with Iceman's review. Very watchable film, but not as strong as the assembled cast. (+2 tp)

Divergent (2014)

4 stars

Really good.
Beautiful visuals.
Moved at a great pace despite the long running time.
Built up a very interesting world and stimulated my imagination through out. Only a little bit of cheesiness and predictability.

Ended a little strange but this is set up to be another trilogy. (+5 tp)

It could, maybe should be downgraded to a 4, for some of the cheese (since it is targeted to teenage girls) but it was pretty slick.

Red Dawn (1984)

4 stars

At the time, I really liked this movie. It seemed believable that it could happen. A fun watch 30 years ago. OMG, where has the time gone?

The Outsiders playing at war. LOL

It hasn't aged well and the remake is dreadful, as usual, and even dumber. (+5 tp)

The Quick and The Dead was really dumb. For such a great cast, Hackman, Stone, Crowe, DiCaprio, etc, it was horrible.

yes i forgot about 310 to yuma it was very good and foster was awesome, i usually really love crowe but in that movie his character just rubbed me the wrong way.

Virtuosity & gladiator are what i think of with crowe.

Oh man, Ben Foster totally owned 3:10 to Yuma, totally stole the show from both Bale and Crowe

That was it. It was great. It examined how this merger affected people at different levels on the corporate ladder. Great cast, Tommy Lee Jones was the CEO.

Ben Afflek played a real pipeweed; a role he was quite well suited for.

The Company Men with Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones is the one you're thinking of. I didn't see it but it got pretty good reviews for a very limited run here in the US.

He's ok, like I said, I like many of his movies, and like you said, when he plays a regular guy, like in Tin Cup, he's fine, it's when he tries to jump up a notch that he's out of his element and looks bad.

oh man, I love Costner. He's not the world's greatest actor, but most of the time is quite good. Especially when playing a regular guy, he really shines at that.

I saw some offbeat movie about all these shipping execs and their lives during a corporate sale, it was actually a great movie, and Costner had a great bit role in it.

Did any of you see that movie? It was fantastic, i have to remember the name

Forgot about Silverado. Haven't seen that since it came out which is a LONG time ago.

I don't hate Kevin Costner, he's just not a great actor, he's decent at best but I really like a lot of the movies he's been in, Tin Cup, Water World, The Postman, Dances With Wolves, Robin Hood, 3000 Miles To Graceland, and The Untouchables but I can't ever help think that those movies would be BETTER with someone else in the role he plays. Some of those aren't good but I enjoyed them, they were entertaining enough.

I didn't see JFK or The Bodyguard and if you can believe it, I've never seen Field of Dreams(only part of it) or Bull Durham and I've heard those are good movies.

I think he was one of those "flavor of the month" actors. He was popular and thus got a lot of parts he maybe shouldn't have. Of course some of them like Dances with Wolves, he was the director and producer and could plop himself into any role he wanted and it's funny that he won Oscars as the director and producer for it but not as actor but has won or been nominated for Razzie awards for The Bodyguard, Robin Hood, Waterworld, 3000 miles to graceland, The Postman, and For Love of The Game, as well as being nominated for WORST ACTOR OF THE CENTURY.

Ouch.

Costner is pretty bad but he's made a ton of dough in the game, that's for sure and will continue to because enough people like him.

3:10 to Yuma was a good modern western. Tombstone had the potential to be great, but it squandered a lot of that potential towards the middle/end if you ask me.

"Red Dawn was awesome in 1984."

Agreed. I watched the remake and hoped that it would get better as it went along. It didn't.

"Unforgiven > Wyatt Earp > dances with wolves > open range > silverado > Tombstone"

Unforgiven was only OK for me. Without Clint Eastwood it would have been horrible.

Didn't like Wyatt Earp (compared to Tombstone).

Didn't like Dances With Wolves at first, but have grown to appreciated it more.

I did like Open Range.

Kudos on the Silverado reference. A forgotten classic.

I thought Tombstone was great. Val Kilmer had the best part.


Strange that with all the Kevin Costner hate here, he's in 4 of these 6 movies.

I can buy the "so bad it is good" I suppose. It is really bad lol. John Milius is a great forgotten director, I've seen most of this movies.

Red Dawn was awesome in 1984. Hasn't aged well at all and the remake is even dumber. The North Koreans invade? Really? Such a neat trick to get all those planes past our defenses and into the state of Washington. LMAO

Red Dawn (1984)

3 stars

Oh man, this movie is so bad it's good. The performances are so absurdly over the top and the story is just beyond ludicrous but it just glories in itself so much that you can't help but love it. A conservative nutjob's wet dream of a film (0 tp)

Unforgiven > Wyatt Earp > dances with wolves > open range > silverado > Tombstone


i'd debate some of the eastwood ones from earlier days are better than tombstone but i'd be unsure, tombstone is a damn fine movie, but the above 5 are definitely better.
