I saw this art house millennial horror here called "It Follows". Pretty good. Seemed like something pat sullivan would have liked.

The Three Stooges (2012)

3 stars

The stooges recreations are perfect, and fairly funny. But honestly, the stooges were best in small bites. 90 minutes gets old and very long. Jersey Shore stuff was not funny and makes the movie very dated of all things, despite being only 3 years old. I do like how they are stuck out of time cluelessly ala The Brady Bunch, that was the best part.

Far from a must see movie but funny enough and some gags are very. Impressions great. But too much of the same thing and oddly dated (0 tp)

That is seriously one of the greatest movies. I saw it three times in the theater and i never even see something twice. I have watched it three more times on video and i think about it a lot

Dark City (1998)

5 stars

i had this reviewed already, but i wanted to bring it up

i just downloaded the directors cut, and this movie to me is above and beyond what i want in movies, it delivers awesome dialogue, awesome actors, awesome theme, and a great ambiance not matched by any movie ive seen.

how does everyone feel about dark city? and if you have not seen it, get to it!


one of the best sci fi's of all time in my books, amazing cast, awesome story, and very different then the rest. (+5 tp)

Rurouni Kenshin (Trilogy)

I'll give it 4.5 stars.

If you're into Manga and liked the Kenshin Series, I think you'll like the movie.

Jupiter Ascending

2.5 stars

This movie is garbage but slightly enjoyable garbage. Everything here is a rip off; dune, twilight, even cinderella. Imo? Mila Kunis is a horrible actress. Channing tatum, although hated, is decent in macho roles and sean bean is good but kind of rehashes himself here

So why watch it? For me the villains make the movie; and the effeminate spolied family members are hilarious to watch. Also, the cheese factor is so high, it is kind of fun. Finally this movie has great visuals courtesy of the wachowskis

Awful but has some redeeming qualities. Definitely a chick flick though (0 tp)

The Wolf of Wall Street

4.5 stars

Black comedy mixed with large part actual wall street insanity. Nothing i didnt know, but great presentation. I have ALWAYS thought Leo was a great actor but i have never seen him this great before. Wow

My favorite character and one probably very much like my temperament was the dad "mad max". I am the same way, i blow my stack and swear a blue streak over some little thing then calm right down. Rob Reiner is so amazing (+5 tp)

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

5 stars

A timeless sci fi movie, with a stellar cast at the top of their game. This movie works on so many levels (including a lovely whiff of cheese) that makes you quickly realize how much you love these characters and this universe. Meyer keeps the movie moving with great slow/fast pacing that will keep you on the edge of your seat for either action or character development / exposition. Also expands the trek universe without adding geeky nerdom

Nothing less than brilliant. And guess what? I just saw it in a theater! (+5 tp)

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

4.5 stars

Really really enjoying this reboot.
Fantastic stuff.
I'd say this is how you integrate CGI into a movie, have a great story and build heart into it. (+5 tp)

link #1: Earlier research from the same group had shown that patients with damage to the frontal lobes of the brain lack some of the emotional aspects of Theory of Mind, so they speculated that psychopathy may also be linked to frontal lobe dysfunction.

lol thats hard evidence to you?

link #2 says the data is limited...

link #3 was tested on people with tendencies.
im talking about serial killers we've had in history. their home lives were totally unbalanced in a high ratio causing the problems.

in today's age you can basically get online information to back-up anything.

what im basing my info on isnt the everyday psychopaths(which i think 5 out of 10 decktech users will fall into this category) but on the serial killers. i had a friend who was obsessed with them and would tell me all their origins and none of them were pretty.

It followed the book really well, I was surprised that Ratner managed to only frimbazel up part of it with the wretched ending, lol. It even took some parts straight from Manhunter

Primary psychopathy is generally thought to be genetic while secondary psychopathy is more tied to environmental factors. Environment can certainly create psychopaths with no genetic predispositions, I don't deny that but saying that people aren't born with said genetic predispositions is simply ignorant.

you should read statistics on psychopaths and mass murderers and what they have in common like being in screwed up homes or families that move around constantly therefore not forming attachment.

still cant believe you compared it to being bi polar.

#1 cant believe you compared psychopaths to bi polar, one is a nerve imbalance while the other is a personality disorder (totally NOT related to genetics)

#2 modern science you're reading im not sure where it is but the one im reading says we are learned behaviour.

Modern science disagrees with you, lol. Are you trying to say that someone that is bi polar was raised that way? Genetics has as much if not more influence than environment for mental illness

Hag - humans are learned behaviour animals. i would argue that all animals are. dogs that are pushed harder or have harder lives tend to be smarter.. etc.

no one is born a pyscho. psychos are made by lack of parenting and lack of communication and etc.

Oh man, how did I miss that gem from Phil?

Some people ARE born 'psychos'. Egads. Apparently some are also born with terrible taste in movies and TV, lol

Neal, did you see Red Dragon? The remake/redux? Despite being helmed by that nimrod Ratner it is surprisingly not awful

"[The movie] also either says this woman was a terrible mother and raised a psycho, OR the kid is born with warped shimmer for brains

people are products of their environment, no one is born a psycho."

Well that settles that debate!

Manhunter

Shows its age a little bit, but if anything it helps sell you on the time period. Brian Cox does a mean Lecter (+5 tp)

We Need to Talk About Kevin

1 stars

this movie was depressing as hell.

it also either says this woman was a terrible mother and raised a psycho, OR the kid is born with warped shimmer for brains

people are products of their environment, no one is born a psycho.

also. NOTHING happens in this movie, nothing, the whole plotline is revealed at the start and you basically sit there and wait for it to do something (which never happens!)

We thought it was very good. Long but very good.
