I saw Gravity this weekend and I must say that it is a pretty damn good movie.  See it in 3D.

I watched Cloverfield a few weeks ago. It looked stupid at first, but it actually ended up being a pretty good movie.

Watched High Fidelity again the other night, really great.
And watching The Frozen Ground at the moment, also with John Cusack.
In this one he's a suspected serial murderer in Alaska, being hunted by Nick Cage, with the help of a young prostitute (Vanessa Hudgens).
It's pretty good.

Gravity

Like most survival movies, there isn't much plot. However, great underlying themes and special effects that make you feel like you are in space put the finishing touches to this pleasure.

9.5/10

Don Jon

Absolutely hysterical. A porn based romantic comedy that's completely original and has a nice touch of perspective. Some of the jokes in this movie had me on the floor.

Only God Forgives
Style over substance, beautiful, but a bit empty and very slow.
If you like to say "WTF?!" at the end of a film with no likeable characters but pretty cinematography: thumbs up!

Super 8

6/10

Eh. Nice special effects, but lack of character development and original storyline.

I found Super 8 to be pretty good, myself. The main characters had enough development to pass by me, so id didn't see that as a problem. After all, how much development can you really expect from a big-scale disaster move? The effects were great, and were very convincing.
 I give it an 8.7/10.

Captain Phillips: A

This is by far the most intense movie I've seen in a very long time. Even though I knew how it would end, it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film and was extremely gripping and emotional. Also, as could be expected, Tom Hanks did amazing work acting as Captain Phillips.
I realize there's a controversy over how accurately this movie depicts what really happened, but in my opinion, that shouldn't stop anyone from going to see it.

Super 8? I saw that in theaters when it was first released. I can't remember the whole movie, but it was pretty damn good.

I thought it was one of J.J. Abrams best. It had a really well thought out plot, the directing made me cry because it was so frickin' perfect, the special effects were amazing. The characters were brilliantly put together and the movie itself was really good.

9/10

Super 8 was wonderful. That train wreck scene was one of the best destruction scenes I've, er, seen. Plus, the whole feel of it had that Steven Spielberg 80s, teen adventure movie. I think the cinematography, the time period of the 80s, the monster, stuff like that.

I saw Gravity this past weekend. Oh Lord, how beautiful. And frightening. My main problem with it is Sandra Bullock's histronics. I just could not buy, given her trademark gasping and panicking, that she was a scientist among the elite few chosen by NASA to participate on a mission. Granted, perhaps NASA doesn't have the cachet it used to have, but man, if they selected you to go into space...I imagine that they had extensively evaluated your psychological profile to see how you'd react to stress. Extreme stress.

I dunno, maybe I'm being too hard. I guess Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley has spoiled me for any other female heroines battling for life and death in space.

Forrest Gump- 9.2/10 Literally one of the best movies ever made.

South Park, Bigger, Longer, and Uncut- 9.0/10 Every song in that movie had me laughing so hard, and it's as close to my image of a perfect South Park movie I'll ever see.

House At The End of the Street- 7.5/10 It wasn't terrible, and a few scenes did make me shudder a bit, but the plot was a little too predictable.

It's pretty damn great (and definitely spearheaded the show's change of direction into insightful satire). What Would Brian Boitano Do is easily my favourite song in it. smile

Storyline-wise though, I still kind of see it is an extended (and much more epic) version of the episode "Death." Only far, far better in every possible way.

Star Trek: Into Darkness

I've never seen any form of Star Trek prior to this film, so I wasn't entirely sure on what to expect. I am pleased to say that I found it very enjoyable, and I particularly liked the acting.

8/10. I'm not sure what else to say about it, really.

I'm sorry to say it but Bad Grandpa gets a C rating. The funniest scenes were in the trailer except for 2 and if see the movie you will agree.

And it's because of people like you that Trek has been watered-down and turned into empty spectacle.

Never seen any Star Trek INDEED! What the fuck are they watching it for now, then? Jesus Christ... go and rent the Original Series! Philistines.. should all be MADE to watch Trek.........

But yeah, I also enjoyed it.

Except for one thing... and I can no longer deny it. I've tried not to, in much the same way as I tried with Tobey McGuire... but again I cannot - I hate Chris Pine. Something about him just rubs me the wrong way. Too loud. He's an arrogant jerk, but not in the endearing way that Shatner was an arrogant jerk.

You gotta love how CC makes you watch the trailer about 50 times if you decide to watch the new South Park (or anything else) on their site.

Cyberbully

Although the ending was a little weak, this was a great, accurate, and inspirational deprecation of online bullying through the use of social media. Emily Osment and Kay Panabaker's acting was also really great.

9/10

I watched The Pianist the other day.

I don't like the way that Roman Polanski makes great films that showcase a real understanding of humanity because I wish I could just ignore his work and call him a scumbag rapist.

But it was brilliant.

Also, Michael Jackson.

Jurassic Park
9.5/10
The plot was phenomenal as well as the directing. Steven Spielberg is an amazing director and produces some of the best movies out there. I really love how he pulled this movie together and the angles he chose for each shot were illustrious! The .5 I'm not giving is because of some of the minor mistakes as well as some corny acting that could have been touched on in certain areas. I overall thought is was great and highley advise that anyone who hasn't seen it, should.  smile

 I can't agree more, acouple months ago cartoonlover and I went and saw it in 3D. Tears filled my eyes when I saw how wonderful the scenes in the beggining were. In fact, she actually got mad at me when she saw tears streaming down my face and said

"I can't believe you can cry at frickin' angles and scenes in a movie yet didn't cry when Gatsby died in 'The Great Gatsby'!!"  tongue

Me and my cousin watch movies every Tuesday, so I guess I'll review what we watch then.  We usually pick pretty random movies so I've got no idea what it'll be.

Batman Begins

Yes, yes. I'm pretty late to the party. I liked this movie though; it was well-paced and the villains were great. I rolled my eyes a bit at the gravity-defying Batmobile, but aside from that I can't think of much to fault. It was neat seeing Bruce train up and ultimately become

I was just thinking recently about how well Jurassic Park still holds up visually today. Impressive considering it came out in 1993, at the same time as such cinema classics as Last Action Hero and Super Mario Brothers.

Actually I don't know why I was being sarcastic, I loved those two movies at the time. Fuck everybody else.
