50/50


Pretty much a dramedy about a guy who gets diagnosed with cancer...starring Seth Rogan. I really enjoyed this one, it was a good balance of comedic bits with a dramatic setting that really made you think about life and how it can just end like that.



Easy A


I'll be honest, I expected something different than what I got here, and as a result I left a bit disapointed. Not to say this wasn't a good movie, I guess I just had different expectations than what I watched. Still, the story was pretty good and Emma Stone is a real charmer

I liked this film, too. I thought parts of it were kinda a more realistic approach of how a young guy would react to cancer... as well as being sad it is also something that is awkward and confusing.

Kick Ass 2

It was more of the same. You get what you've come to expect from the movie especially if you have seen the first one. Jim Carrey wasn't as much of a standout performance as I thought he was going to be imo. All of his good material was ruined in the trailers. This may have a negative tone to it but if you want a good time during this weekend then of course you gotta check it out.

I'd rate it higher than that. It basically does what the first film does (comedy through self-awareness of how bad it would otherwise be) better and adds absolutely brutal violence to the mix. Seriously, when I heard Jim Carrey talking about the violence I assumed it was just going to be more of Hit-Girl beating the **** out of mooks but oh no, it's way rougher. You should all go and see it unless you didn't like the first film in which case you should stay well away.

I felt very humbled watching this doc. Jason Becker was a guitar prodigy in the late 80's who is now virtually paralysed with Lou Gehrigs Disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and is still alive 20 years later despite the life span of the sufferer being 5 years. He still makes music through the use of his eyes (watch the doc) and is a genuine inspiration to so many people.
I have to say that his parents are two of the most inspirational and gutsy people I have ever come across.
You don't need to like Metal to watch this doc at all. Class stuff.

Westworld

such a classic b sci fi flick.....nothing better than cowboy robot in Rome killing people from Medieval times

than i watched


Lovelace

without even getting near the horrible **** that was done to her which she tells about in her book....this movie still strikes hard on what abuse and control can be like...not for the faint of heart....and if you're a guy i would not suggest watching this with a woman

Thirst
Probably my favourite Park Chan Wook movie that I've seen so far, although admittedly that only counts Lady Vengeance (which I kinda hated if I'm brutally honest) and Oldboy.


Meh. Was ok I guess. If watching Hayden Christiansen being a smug prick and then getting electrocuted for it sounds like fun, then go lap this up.

Really enjoyed this. I couldn't really get into it at the start but once the card game started, I was hooked. One of the better action/comedies I've seen in a while. Vinnie Jones was incredible in this.

7.5/10



After hearing how great it was, I have to say I was a bit let down. It still had its moments (I lost it when the bookcase fell on him the second time), but it just wasn't as good as I expected it to be. It's a tough movie to rate, but I'd probably give it a 6/10.

Just watched it; thanks for the recommendation.



I think it was very comparable to In Bruges, and possibly a bit better. Brendan Gleeson was incredible in this, and Don Cheadle was quite good as well. I'm not sure that it was as consistently funny as In Bruges was, but I think it might have produced funnier moments than anything that In Bruges had. I also bought into the chemistry between Gleeson and Cheadle more than I did with anyone in In Bruges. Overall, great film.

8/10
