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.

Chariots of Fire

1.5 stars

If you think a picture about unsung english runners from Cambridge sounds boring, well, you are actually right. This BEST PICTURE was dull from start to finish. It offered no real character development, and a bunch of clearly idealized and likely white washed characters.

Really cheeseball score too; the famous song is quite cringe inducing playing while watching pale skinny runners in slow motion on a beach.

Of course, some half baked anti antisemitism side plot is thrown in, as well as some half truthed obstacle concerning running on sunday.

Horribly boring and feels very false. Shocked this movie was a best picture winner.

I'm going to be watching some more best pictures from the era, will probably drop some reviews. (-1 tp)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

5 stars

This isn't destined for greatness; it IS greatness.

As many other TMNT and martial arts movies have proved, you can't do the turtles better than this. It's a plot straight out of the 80s; disaffected and ignored youth form gangs and prey on the unsuspecting teased hair populace.

Except in this case, the cliché is a classic because this is done to perfection. It's very funny, very campy, has got one 80s big haired babely babe and one 80s rocker haired manly man, contains loads of surprisingly good martial arts. And best of all, it knows all the stereotypes and pokes fun at them, while taking itself just enough that you can be drawn into it.

And the special effects are actually amazing. With not one hint of CGI anywhere to be found. It's astounding that the turtles could be brought to life like this.

It's nothing short of a great movie, in almost every way. I laughed, hooted, waxed on the 80s, groaned, and mentally punched and kicked along. Even the Turtle Power song was catchy and cool.

Nothing short of 5 stars, and deserving of every one. (+5 tp)

Zero Dark Thirty

4 stars

Intense movie. Really made me wonder how our people overseas can stand to be there. Being a guard on an outpost must be the most boring and then most stressful job ever. The music seemed familiar but I couldn't place it. Brought up the events again and discussion that shows what a risk it was. (+5 tp)

I wouldn't see Transformers 4 if you paid me. I strangely read those reviews just last night on that site out of curiosity, the consensus seemed to be that while it seems unlikely that a worse transformers movie could be made, it actually was.

Anyone excited for Transformers 4?

Funny review on RottenTomatoes:

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" isn't a "good" movie by any conventional standards, but as nothing more than empty, stupid, sometimes dazzling spectacle it provides exactly what audiences who flock to this series will be looking for."

X-Men: Days of Future Past

4.5 stars

Having not read the comics, it was easier to enjoy this. Some of my comic book reading buddies groaned about some things but not me, I enjoyed it throughout.

Lots of action, cool super powers, and storyline looks like it got repaired I guess? Seems like it to me but again, I never read the comics so if they deviated from them, oh well. I liked it. :) (+5 tp)

X-Men: Days of Future Past

4 stars

Very good x movie. Lots of interesting side characters, good wow factor and a well handled version of a story that could be easy to screw up. Also a fun setting in the 70s

Still would have liked to see more of the old cast and surprisingly, inthought Jackman of all people was the weak point. He must be over the role, he kind of just sleep walked through the movie for me

Still the best xmovie in a decade and a great cast both old and new (+5 tp)

A bit too lengthy, it could have used some serious editing, but other than that I loved it. Watched it with my 3 year old and she was mesmerized by all the animals (+5 tp)

X-Men: Days of Future Past

4.5 stars

Really really good. Currently like it better than any other X-Men movie aside from First Class. Gonna have to give more time to digest it.

This is as good a time as any to say I really like the Charles and Magneto castings for both young and old, they did such a great job there. I got upset at X1 and X2 and X3 leaning so heavily on Wolverine however its plausible here.

It's time travel so you've got to detach a bit and roll with the alternate futures. (+5 tp)

It feels a little long but that is acceptable based on the circumstance of the story. Very nice visuals. (+5 tp)

Wreck-It Ralph

5 stars

First, a very funny movie, that really knows its video games. Like Iceman, I was in a bad mood to start, but quickly started laughing and being impressed at the funny retro video game references. As the movie goes on though, there are some real emotional moments and a far more complex story than one would expect.

Personally, I have always found the bad guys more interesting and complex than the good guys. But this movie is more than a rehash of say Shrek 3, it's really about how we feel and act towards one another based on your role in life.

Great movie, with something for everyone. (+5 tp)
