Decent enough but nowhere near as good as the first instalment.

Watched Never Back Down yesterday with some people.

Jesus christ it was so much fun to take the piss out of. I pretty much predicted the entire plot throughout the film, right down to the camera angles.

Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

Wow this sucked. It committed the worst offense a horror movie can commit and that's being boring. Seriously I spent half the damn movie on my iPad playing solitaire and occasionally glancing up when the demon inevitably went booo! I'll admit the pacing was decent and there was one shot in particular where the camera is left sitting on the little girls table shooting this teddy bear, while off to the right this little door slowly closes on its own. Other than that it was just as forgettable as the second one with the only thing going for it is the dissemblance of the horror by telling the audience why the demon is haunting this family.

It's a real shame the Paramounts are going to squeeze this franchise for every last penny it's worth because the first one was actually pretty decent. But isn't that always the case, whenever an indie horror movie does well we get a hastily produced cash-in sequel the next year (Blair Witch Project and Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2) and after the Saw franchise proved that people are willing to pay for the same thing 7-times in a row it's no wonder there's a 4th Paranormal Activity movie set to come out this October. It's sad because Paranormal Activity was the movie that essentially killed the Saw franchise after utterly crushing Saw 6 at the box office in 2009, to see it resigned the same fate is just... sad. It doesn't seem like Hollywood is capable of delivering on horror anymore, all it is is just remake '80's horror movies, making grotesque franchises like these two, or Americanizing foreign horror films.

I haven't posted in a while so this might be two huge posts but here's what I've seen the past week or so.



I've never really been into black metal but I loved this documentary. The story of Mayhem and other acts that branched off from them was definitely different than the ones I had heard from word of mouth. The interviews were great and the stories were awesome. Well done.

8/10



Essential film that really revolutionized how films portray historical events. Paul Greengrass must have seen this movie a thousand times because it reminded me of Bloody Sunday. The documentary style filming was great and I liked how the film was shown from both sides with minimal bias. Great film.

8/10



I think this was the last film where Kubrick collaborated with a cinematographer. It showed. I liked the film but I could really tell that Kubrick was limited in what he wanted to do with the shots. The ending was great.

8/10



Very important film to watch. I will say that it was like taking a sleeping pill at times but it was because of the way the film progressed rather than because it was boring. A very slow burn that had hilarious dialogue at times and a great ending.

8/10



I wasn't too impressed with this one but there were a few scenes that were interesting. I think this is the first film I've seen Mickey Rourke in before he looked like a monkey. He became a much better actor later on.

5.5/10



My least favorite Coen brothers film besides Lady Killers. I do however believe this film will grow on me. I need to watch it again.

6/10



I was very surprised by this one. My girlfriend wanted to see it really bad and I thought it was going to be horrible but I knew it had gotten good reviews. It was very funny. I laughed a lot and I don't usually like comedies. It wasn't as good as say Superbad or Step Brothers but it's definitely the funniest movie this year.

7/10



This was a huge bag of meh. Some scenes were okay and entertaining but overall it wasn't very good. The ending was interesting though.

5/10



One of the better documentaries I've seen recently. Through footage shot by the reporters themselves as it was happening, the whole film tells of what really goes on in military run Burma. It was an eye opening look into a country we really can't look at.

9/10



Average political drama. I expected more out of Watts and Penn after seeing them in 21 Grams. Just very forgettable.

5/10

Very good film. Clooney is an awesome director. He's become one of my favorite people in hollywood. The film's plot took a while to get going but when it did it provided a very interesting climax and finish. Gosling and Clooney were great and had awesome help from a great supporting cast. How this wasn't nominated for Best Picture over Extremely Loud I'll never know...

8.5/10



Very good film. It was definitely the slowest of his movies but the story was so well done that it didn't matter. Another great performance by Sam Jackson.

8/10

Oh you just have to rewatch it sometime then, yeah. I like it a lot. It very well could be their worst next to Ladykillers, but it's not bad at all. I give it a 7.5, I like what the film says about Hollywood, and I like how you can infer different meanings from Fink's friend in the motel.

Ladykillers gets a bad rap, that movie is hilarious.
