Life of Pi (2012)

3.5 stars

I only watched this due to the reviews here. A fictional characters fictional life doesnt hold a lot of interest to me. Additionally, i hate ang lee

Better than i thought though. Incredible visuals and very well acted. Theme was a little outside of my style though; was never one to be into the jöb like "god is torturing you to make you find the truth" story. I dont buy it. I dont think god gets that involved, i think that is just looking for a silver lining in being tortured.

Nice to see real animals on the screen too. Thanks for the recommendation, decktechers (+2 tp)

Good review. Sounds like you think like me; spiderman 3 syndrome here. Just too much packed into one movie. Vision, witch/quicksilver, ultron

Avengers : Age of Ultron

4 stars

Great action movie and am looking forward to seeing it again. Overall, I think it was a very good and entertaining movie. I think the characters were true to form and I like what they did with Stark and Banner during the movie.

However, a couple of things that detracted:
1. As Neal alluded to, there were some parts that were hard to understand the first time around. Mainly the Thor dream stuff. Apparently Joss Whedon wanted to expand on that more but Marvel didn't want to.
2. Too much going on. Too many stories and characters to track. The whole Vision thing seemed forced to me. (+5 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

2 stars

I hate to be the naysayer, but i didnt care for this movie. Everything seemed forced; forced chemistry, forced romance and worst of all forced humor. Wasnt a fan of ulton either. Convuluted storyline and strange and confusing editing didnt help. Very very long too

Tony stark was the best part of the movie, but that was not enough to mKe up for all the jammed feel and lack of genuine feeling (-1 tp)

Avengers : Age of Ultron

4.5 stars

Excellent in almost every way. Lots of action, lots of humor, exactly what I need from Marvel.

The characters were outstanding as well, the newcomers especially, and of course, there is more to come in future films.

Can't wait for more! (+5 tp)

Avengers was very, very good. Not a comic guy so no need to quibble about little stuff like Ultron having lips and stuff like that. LOL

Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

2 stars

disappointing, few good moments but nothing amazing like the original

actually even the original upon re-watch isnt as good as remembered.

the only movie that seesms to cut it from that era of movies is happy gilmore. (-1 tp)

You haven't seen the original Dumb and Dumber? I have no desire to see the sequel (or the pretend sequel that came before that), but the original is classic. If you like him, its Jim Carrey at his obnoxious best.

Hector and the Search for Happiness (2014)

Has a very similar vibe to Walter Mitty ( break out of your mold, do some odd things to change or enjoy your current life more). I enjoyed it quite a bit. (+5 tp)

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)

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.
