American Hustle

3.5 stars

Decent movie but overhyped. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams seem young for their roles, but they do look hot. Took a long time to get going but has some fun moments. Lots of talent in front of the camera but the story wasn't bringing anything new for me. (+2 tp)

Guardians of the Galaxy

4.5 stars

It's not your typical marvel movie.

Surprisingly light hearted and funny and not afraid to make fun of itself. I especially liked that most of the characters didn't really have any powers, just a few ray guns and some gumption. Much like the original Star Wars (which is hard for most people to put into the context of no other movies at the time, but try), it creates a very large, diverse, strange and exotic universe to play in.

Ran on a LEETLE too long for me at the end. Other than that, gobs of fun, who would have thought C-list characters could be so interesting. (+5 tp)

Better than the best 120 minutes of the SW prequels if you edited them together. Great flick. Pratt is awesome. Fast moving, fun, summer popcorn movie.

Marvel is hitting the crap out of the park right now. (+5 tp)

Man, that SUCKS. If there was one movie I was looking forward to this year, that was it. What a disappointment.

Sin City : A Dame To Kill For (2014)

3 stars

Very uneven.
Didn't have the surprise of the original Sin City so that hurt a lot.

Some of the images were great.
Josh Brolin/Eva Green segment was awesome.
Gordon Levitt was good too.
Jessica Alba looked good but once again the lack of nudity still kinda irks me that they settled for her.

You can wait for $1 rental or something, no need to see it in theater like I did.

Someone told me it was good but I don't have much faith in people anymore, for anything.

How good could it be? I was never a fan of it. Ever. Thought it was silly.

Megan Fox is delicious though. Yummy.

So i hear teenage mutant ninja turtles sucks though. Cant understand the rationale in trying to have such a poor actor, hot or not, carry an entire movie. Strange idea

I was channel flipping the other day and one of the Transformer movies was on, the 2nd one and Megan Fox was just so unbelievably hot in that movie, my GAWD.

I know we had this discussion before, but I assure you, when women are 40 they are absolutely gorgeous. As long as they take care of themselves.

Funny line on Megan Fox lol

This Is 40

3 stars

I LOVED Knocked Up, so the premise of this really intrigued me. It's really uneven and overlong, and missing half the cast from KU doesn't help. That said, I did enjoy the story and laughed fairly often. Bonus points for Leslie Mann's topless scene, she's mad hot for a 42 year old.

Megan Fox gets special mention here, I added a star simply cuz she is so goddamn hot in everything she does, and then I removed a star because it felt like she was in the movie solely because she is so goddamn hot in everything she does. Eliminate her character and the ensuing 30 minutes of screen time and I think the movie would be much more watchable. (0 tp)

Boyhood

4.5 stars

Being cynical, it's worthwhile for just the "trick" alone.
It is amazing how neat and powerful it is to see the characters age in a more "real" way. Ethan Hawke was great and its a collection of touching moments/sensations.

This movie is different from most hollywood movies so it is hard to predict and I'm not sure if the ending felt anti-climatic or I was just upset that it ended. (+5 tp)

Guardians of the Galaxy

4.5 stars

One of my friends saw this, really liked it, and described this as what the prequels should have been so that perked my interest (along with the comic connection).

Suffice it to say he is right. It is a very fun and quite lighthearted movie that has me really excited for a follow up.

Beautiful sets, some of the CGI went a little too quickly/overboard for me but otherwise a really good and enjoyable movie.

Almost teared up at a few points too. (+5 tp)

It still has interesting themes such as ; addiction, how far do you go for a friend , how far you go for a dream, a "dream job" versus a day job, and other things that make it a good movie.

I think so, it's still a cool story and brilliant acting. They just wouldn't understand some of the poker lingo but they'll get the idea.

A rounder is someone who "makes the poker rounds", from game to game, regularly, also called "rounding" but it has other parts to it that are plenty interesting. I can't imagine someone not liking it but you never know.

Question: objectively, if a viewer is NOT into poker at all, would he/she enjoy it?

I can't believe they never followed it up with a sequel. I'm glad they didn't as they usually ruin it but just surprised they didn't.

I thought this was reviewed before.
This movie is good and inspirational for a gamer.
Good mix of comedy/drama.
Strong supporting cast of Landau, Turturro, Norton, and Jansen.

Rounders

5 stars

Outstanding movie in every way, so well done.

At the time, I was playing poker almost every night and the feeling of despair when you have 9's full and there is only one hand that can beat you and the other guy just happens to have it is so well done and brilliantly portrayed by Damon.

Superb acting and just a great story but it helps a lot if you've played competitive poker, it's so easy to relate to the huge wins and bad beats.

Malkovich is just amazing. (+5 tp)

I waffled from 4.5 to 5 and finally gave it all 5. Norton plays the "yeah he is an hobbit hole, but he is my hobbit hole" friend that everyone has perfectly and Malkovich is utter perfection. "I'm steel up tventy grand from last time I steek eet een you!" (+5 tp)

Dr Strange 1978

4 stars

Lately, I've been wanting to see some movies I only barely remember as a child. While some (The star wars holiday special) were misremembered, many have turned out to be excellent (The girl, the gold watch and everything).

I've recalled this Dr Strange TV version for years as being very exciting, and on a whim, tracked it down on the net.

I actually thought it was excellent, and surprisingly well directed. There were some really great camera shots, and much of those shots and the phrasing reminded me of another absolute lovecraftian media favorite; The Gamecube legend Eternal Darkness. Reminded me of 70s Doctor Who also

Good story and cast, some decent special effects for 70s live action and some developed characters who had some potential mileage. I'm sad this never went beyond the pilot stage, probably because CBS was trying to discard its "superhero" image. A real shame, I saw potential in this.

If you like Dr Strange, or even the history of comic book characters on screen, or just enjoy some 70s schmaltz (Dr Strange looks surprisingly close to Ron Burgundy), I think you'll enjoy this. (+5 tp)

Yeah I don't think a 15 minute review would capture enough of your interest if it was the first 15 minutes.

oh man, I have to see that then. I was going to see it in the theaters but the reviews were kind of sucky. You and I usually have similar opinions. I thought it had some really great looking shots in it.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 2013

5 stars

I was worried at the beginning with some of the dream sequences but it kept picking up stars as it went along.

Reminded me of themes from Stranger than Fiction, The Beach, etc and really turned out a heartwarming story.

Also, this is related to the movie as well (non-spoiler) which is really cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU7rhVub0rU (+5 tp)

I am half tempted to change my review of Chariots of Fire to Phils. That about sums it up.
