Gnomeo and Juliet

Did have much of a story and it was kinda weak. It felt like a long Elton John music video.

Meh.

Watched this like two weeks ago, but forgot to post about it so:

Black Dynamite

One of the most hilarious spot-on genre parody movies of all time. Recommended viewing for anybody who has eyes.

^ DYNO-MITE, DYNO-MITE! <3

All Star Superman
Adapted from some comics and voiced by a few recognisable TV stars (including our beloved John DiMaggio and curvaceous motorboatable Christina Hendricks!)
Lex Luthor commits some evil scheme to kill Superman and gain his powers and Supes has to beat up a load of different threats while trying to tell Lois that he's dying, the plot seems a bit all over the place.
Music was good though.

Just saw Every Which Way But Loose a couple days ago.  Loved it.  5 stars, 2 thumbs up, A, however you rate it, it's up near the top for me.  I love Netflix more and more these days.

Inside Job
Documentary about the economic crash of a few years ago that resulted in most of the people of Earths wallets getting a good fat rodgering.
Narrated by Matt Damon and featuring some of the biggest tools that ever walked on Wall Street, greedy fuckwits that could have prevented it and the  powerless economists that warned them the bubble was going to burst.
Well put together and stuff.

I saw it a while ago, and I was pissed off.  Wall Street breeds these assholes by the boatload, and conservative administrations refuse to reign them in.  And the non-insiders end up paying for it.  Fucken.

The Matrix
Excellent film with stunning special effects and excellent writing that questions our own reality, although it gave me a headache. Probably because I was watching it on my iPad in the dark.

Close Encounters of The Third Kind (DC)

I just saw the directors cut of this film again, and it's even better than I remember it.  It actually improves a brilliant original film & it really emphasizes the "wonder & amazement" angle more.  I wish current hollywood producers & directors would watch this film & understand that, without a great story, special effects are empty.  You hear me, Michael Bay?

Watched 5 movies on Netflix recently that I hadn't seen yet, so let's see if I can get through them here. I'll just say some thoughts about them, I won't rate them.

Fearless

This was the first movie of the five that I watched, but it was definitely my favorite. Jeff Bridges plays a survivor of a plane crash whose personality completely changes. The movie is mostly a depressfest but it's so emotionally strong and Jeff Bridges is such a pleasure to watch acting. This is only the second movie I've ever seen that made me cry at the end, and trust me, I tried to resist. The tears just came.

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

Another "Fear" movie, might there be a theme here? This movie was a blast to watch, Johnny Depp is hilarious. That's all I can really say. Oh ya, drugs are fun.

The Evil Dead

I had a much different impression of what I thought this film would be (from hearing others talk about it) than what it actually was. It wasn't as funny as I expected it to be, and at times it seemed very formulaic, but not like a parody of horror films or anything. I still liked it though, because it took a different tone than most other horror films seemed to take. Bruce Campbell's character was the most believable of all of them, and the scene where he simply waits against the wall with the shotgun and looks around and wonders "what the fuck is this really happening" was great. And the claymation at the end was just awesome-looking.

The Big Lebowski

Pretty much what I expected from a Coen Brothers movie. Fun, zany, weird, hilarious, another one of their great films.

4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days

Just finished watching this one. If there was ever a more realistic presentation of an incredibly intense predicament than I haven't seen it. The movie can be boring, it can drag, it can seem unnecessary, but you keep watching anyway because it feels like real life. I recommend this to anybody who believes all abortion should be illegal, because when it is, this is what happens.

Lastly, I attempted to watch Exit Through The Gift Shop, but had to stop after the first 20 minutes. The man making the film is clearly OCD and has problems, as he literally cannot ever be not filming with his camera, and Banksy just seems self-righteous and annoying. And street art is meh.

Black Swan

I have finally got to see this movie. It was slow from the start but it end up getting interesting. The plot was Dark and it was done so well. the end scene did surprised me. Natalie Portman was brilliant in it so was Mila Kunis.

Tangled
Humorous Disney singing gheyness with the voices of Mandy Moore as the tragic lost princess Rapunzel and a that guy from Chuck as the handsome anti-hero who helps her out of her tower imprisonment, aided by a sassy chameleon and angry horse (that don't talk, fortunately).
Script is surprisingly witty at times and some of the CGI sequences looked really great too.
B

Burke & Hare
Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis (great teamup) as the infamous Irish body snatchers in Edinburgh around the time medical science was seeking cadavers to dissect, so they begin creating the corpses themselves.  
Along with Isla Fisher and some good comedians make appearances: Bill Bailey, Jessica Hynes, Ronny Corbet, Stephen Merchant briefly, and also a cameo from Christopher Lee and Paul Whitehouse.

Why has everyone seen this movie?  I was gonna show it to my friends as a joke but they already saw it. So we watched Human Centipede instead...

That movie is both awesome and frustratingly awful at the same time.  Watch it if you don't mind seeing people connected mouth to anus.

Isn't that a Coen Brothers film?  "WTF?" has been my reaction to almost every film they've made, but their films have grown on me.  Particularly The Big Lebowsksi, which is now one of my favorites.

Some Coen Brothers movies are more WTF than others. The Big Lebowski isn't really much of a WTF movie, it's probably one of their most popular because it's possibly their least confusing film.

Try watching Eraserhead.

That's a different kind of WTF though. That's a movie that's made to be weird as hell from beginning to end, like a trip. Barton Fink is one of those films where it seems like you can follow everything that's happening, and then at the end it just goes INSANE.

That's for sure.  One thing I like about their films is, you know from the beginning that there's creative people at work there.  Not formulaic Michael Bay crap.

Black Swan
Wowsers, pretty good stuff from Aronofsky, directing up a storm with Portman as the lead ballerina gone a bit mad trying to handle The Black Swan persona of Tchaikovskys Swan Lake.
The final act is fantastic, loved the transformation Portman achieved, and Clint Mansels score is pretty sweet too.

A-

On an unrelated note is it just me or does imdb.com not have a CSS stylesheet anymore?

The sexy scenes were ok, until Aronofsky whipped the rug out from under your fap material and creeped you the hell out instead.

The Fighter
Portrait of "Irish" Micky Ward and his ex-fighter brother Dicky, Wahlberg was ok as usual, and Bale did a great job, there's a little clip of the real Dicky in the credits and he essentially captured his character.
It was fun watching his coked out looney, and his mutant sisters and godawful mother were pretty entertaining too.
Fights looked somewhat realistic too.

I just like messing with Fazeshift because he's pretty cool and I actively seek his approval.  But yeah, I guess it was a decent movie... I guess provocative is the word... and also winona lydia was in it.  Yeah, I guess.
