Re: The 2011 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

2011 theatrical releases:

The Mechanic: B (3/5) 2/1/11 "Had the film given Foster and Statham (who are more than capable actors) more to say, this would be a great (possibly A level) action/thriller. It delivers the action goods, but the characters suffer from being criminally underwritten."

Rango: A+ (4.5/5) 3/12/11 "Johnny Depp's strongest work in years. A tremendous PG animated film for adults, sprinkled with enough broad gags to make kids laugh. A true love letter to Leone westerns as well as other genres and specific films. The animation is spot on and the fine voice work mixed with the smart script actually make you feel for the characters. I'd say it's equal with most of Pixar's top work and never has to be emotionally manipulative to get a reaction, a definite plus."

The Adjustment Bureau: A (4/5) 4/23/11 "A smart sci-fi love story headlines by stellar performances from Matt Damon and Emily Blunt (who have wonderful natural on-screen chemistry), as well as Anthony Mackie and Terrance Stamp. I can see why this was such a tough film to market because it feels very much like a by-the-numbers romantic drama with an element of suspense that happens to be deeply cemented in the sci-fi world. Some great themes and issues were brought up and I liked walking out of the movie thinking about the questions raised. Nolfi's direction is pinpoint and the visual effects are seamless as they should always be."

Fast Five: A+ (4.5/5) 4/29/11 "An unapologetically, over-the-top but not insulting action film that pays homage to the goofy roots of the series, while managing to branch out into the action genre. A great ensemble cast, fantastic set pieces, and wonderful pacing, set the bar very high for the 2011 summer season. I say bring on the sixth film, but hopefully they'll wrap things up before killing a series that has gotten a great new breath of life."

Paul: B+ (3.5/5) 4/30/11 "A pleasing sci-fi comedy made by nerds, for nerds. It tries a little too hard at times, and some of the side plots drag, but more often than not, there's a good solid laugh at least once a minute. Some great references that sadly fell flat with the crowd I was in (my laughter echoed at the MAC AND ME one-liner, apparently no one else had ever seen it), but plenty of broad comedy for even non sci-fi fans. One of Rogen's best pieces of work and finally proof that Pegg and Frost can do solid work without Wright."

Thor: A (4/5) 5/6/11 "I was one of the few people who had high expectation for THOR and I'm happy to say the movie met almost all of them, exceeded a few, and only fell short on one or two. A nice old-school feeling superhero movie that knew when and when not to take itself seriously."

Hobo With a Shotgun: B+ (3.5/5) 5/20/11 "A morally bankrupt, cruelly repugnant movie. Wholly enjoyable, although it does falter in its final act. Worth seeing for Rutger Hauer's completely unironic, straightfaced performance."

I Saw the Devil: A+ (4.5/5) 5/28/11 "Choi Min-sik continues his streak of outstanding performances in a expertly paced, intense twist on the revenge thriller. I'm still shocked such a great film came from the man behind the insufferable THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD."

Super: A- (3.5/5) 5/29/11 "A great companion piece of KICK ASS. The relatively straight laced way the "real life" superhero angle was handled was refreshing. Rainn Wilson's performance is incredibly human, off kilter, but still touching. Nathan Fillion as expected nearly steals the show in his bit part. James Gunn definitely has a grasp on taking the "feel" f a a Troma film and adding some class and polish to it. Hope to see more from him, more often."

Kill the Irishman: B+ (3.5/5) 6/2/11 "A textbook example of an above average story and out-of-this world cast being hampered by sub-par direction and production design. Ray Stevenson proves (to the mainstream) he's not just a charismatic hulking force, but a serious actor who can play a role expected to be unhinged and sloppy with finesse and quiet restraint. Also of note is Christopher Walken who turns in the most normal, grounded performance I've seen since CATCH ME IF YOU CAN."

X-Men: First Class: A (4/5) 6/4/11 "A solid sci-fi/fantasy action film. Wasn't too fond of it as a straight up X-Men film, but did appreciate Vaughn trying to do something different. The film suffers most from a bloated, dull supporting cast, but the Charles/Erik dynamic as well as anytime Kevin Bacon is on screen covers up those flaws, while the remainder is competently crafted entertainment."

13 Assassins: A+ (4.5/5) 6/9/11 "Best film of 2011 so far and Miike's finest moment in an already amazing, varied career. If I didn't know any better I'd say he built a time machine and plucked up a lost samurai film of the 50s/60s and brought it back. Do not hesitate seeing this in a theater, worth every penny and then some."

The Man from Nowhere: A+ (4.5/5) 6/18/11 "An action movie doesn't have to be dumb and THE MAN FROM NOWHERE is certainly not dumb. Well paced, beautifully shot, and ultimately satisfying, the film has enough poignancy and development to elevate it from merely another TAKEN to something subtly more human."

Hesher: B+ (3.5/5) 7/2/11 "I honestly feel my gut instinct towards this movie was a bit harsh. Joseph Gordon Levitt is a force of nature as the title character who comes to "save" a family consisting of a chronically bullied 13 year old, a pill addled dad (Rainn Wilson), and a long suffering grandma (Piper Laurie is a thankless role). Natalie Portman shows up as a quirky cashier, but is shockingly the weak link of the film. It's a very antisocial film at times, but manages to be sincerely touching and meaningful in its own strange way.

Beautiful Boy: A+ (4.5/5) 11/12/11 "It took me two tries to get through this, but it's definitely worth at least one viewing. A film that fills you with a feeling of dread and sorrow as it takes an unflinchingly realistic look at how the parents of a school shooting perpetrator struggle to cope amidst a failing marriage. Amazing lead performances from Michael Sheen and Maria Bello."

Re: The 2011 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

DVD/BLU/Theatre/First time viewing

January:
1. True Grit - (****) def enjoyed it. was not what I was expecting.
2. The Expendables -(****1/2) I was wary on checking this out, but not too big on action movies and I kept hearing people complain that it was alot tamer then they were expecting. after finally viewing im not sure what else one could want from an action movie. loved all the humor and characters and impossoble 80s action.

First Time Viewings of Older Films
Spoiler:


Make Way For Tomorrow (1937)- Hilarious yet heartbreaking with some of the greatest performances I've seen from the era. I was surprised by how in tune some of the film elements, such as the editing, is with modern film sensibilities.
The Wild Bunch (1969)- Even with the movie being as long as it was, I never once felt bored. The time flew by. So many great set pieces and characters, with a great buildup to the final shootout.
The Trip (2010)-
Network (1976)-
Winter's Bone (2010)-
After the Fox (1966)-
Velvet Goldmine (1998)-
In the Loop (2009)-
Stardust Memories (1980)-
Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)-
Best Worst Movie (2009)-


Kabluey (2007)- I don't think there was ever a moment where I wasn't laughing in the whole thing. Bitterly funny but heartfelt at the same time with some great sight gags. A wonderful film.
Gummo (1997)- Excruciating to watch yet I couldn't turn away. A movie I don't think I'll be able to wash off.
Do the Right Thing (1989)- Entertaining as all hell with a score of great characters. I love slice of life movies and this would be one of the best.
Suicide Club (2002)- Frequently disturbing, it's an enigma you can't help but agonize over.
The Seventh Seal (1957)- The balance of dread and humor goes together perfectly, defying all odds. Surprisingly very entertaining.
Children of Men (2006)- Besides a compelling story and great performances, it's amazing to watch on a directorial level.
Rocky (1976)- Yes, I had never watched this before. Mainly because it's one of those movies you always hear about it and so you never feel like going out of your way for. That said, I still was not expecting just how damn earnest it is.
Withnail And I (1987)- Utterly hilarious the entire way through.
Rope (1948)- Well written little thriller where James Stewart takes over completely as soon as he arrives.
The Prestige (2006)- A movie that plays sleight of hand with the viewer, even if I could spot one of the main twists very early on. Great acting all around.
Princess (2006)- Danish animated film in the vein of 70's revenge movies. I loved it.
Kick Ass (2010)- A successful parody of as well as a great example in its own right of the superhero genre.
Up (2009)- Utterly hilarious and heartfelt. I loved every character.
9 (2009)- Dark, interesting, and emotionally involving. Too bad most animated films are dominated by smart ass animals.
Give 'Em Hell Malone (2009)-
Burn After Reading (2008)-
Marwencol (2010)-
Cropsey (2009)-
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans (2009)

Dolls (1987)-
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992)-
Coopers' Christmas (2008)-


Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993)- I've discovered a soft spot for MechaG. I seem to enjoy his entries more than usual. This was a fun one that also brings in Rodan and a new baby Godzilla. The pyrotechnics are great.
Godzilla vs. Destroyah (1995)- A fun and surprisingly effective way to end out the Heisei series. Destroyah isn't too much to write home about, but the pathos involved with Junior and Big G himself are genuine enough to have me feeling from the ending.
Air Guitar Nation (2006)- It's amazing how a well made doc can turn make any subject riveting. What starts out feeling as a goof becomes a story you feel invested in and wonder what the outcome will be. Very entertaining.
Enter the Dragon (1973)- Finally got around to seeing the whole thing and really enjoyed it. It was nice seeing Lee bringing his own philosophies to the film. I also never thought I'd see John Saxon not only do martial arts, but kick ass at doing so.
Sole Survivor (1983)- A predecessor to Final Destination, this has plenty of creepy moments and leaves a haunting atmosphere with you once it's finished.
Once Upon a Time in America (1984)- An epic length movie where I really appreciated it's patience. Never once found it dull. Despite a bit of a wonky ending, I still loved the characters and story.
Mega Piranha (2010)- I know what you're thinking. "Four stars?" On a sheer entertainment level, yes. Oh yes. There's so much wrong yet right in this that I couldn't stop laughing once. A new awful classic.
The Fallen Idol (1948)- A nice low-key and mellow suspense movie centered around lies. A tense final act makes it fun.
12 Angry Men (1957)- An engrossing restrained film that keeps you interested solely through the performances.
Fast Food Nation (2006)- Surprisingly effective. A Requiem for a Dream for the food we eat.
Hoop Dreams (1994)- While quite an achievement, it didn't seem to hit me emotionally like it should have. Still, a great watch.
La Strada (1954)- A pretty effective depiction of the loss of innocence.
Rear Window (1954)- My enjoyment may have been hampered by so many parodies but it was still fun.
Zombie Nightmare - MST3K Version (1986)- One of the better episodes with them being "on" for pretty much the entire episode. The Movie itself is one I probably would have watched growing up if it had crossed my path.
The Cruise (1998)- Fascinating trip one man's philosophy involving life and New York. For the record, I love Stroker and Hoop.
Big Night (1996)- Well acted with a lot of comedy and pathos.
Toy Story 3 (2010)- A fitting send off to characters so many have grown up with.
Mater's Tall Tales (2010)- Surprisingly, I had a lot more fun with this than the real movie.
The Expendables (2010)- Nothing original, but it was fun as hell.
Land of the Lost (2009)- Much funnier than I thought it would be, though I can see why it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975)- I'm counting a lot of these Godzilla movies as previously unseen since I haven't seen them since childhood and can only remember fragments of them. This one's not bad, a marginally better human story than some of the others. Lack of Godzilla hurts it a bit. Titanosaurus is cool.
Return of Godzilla (1984)- A good return to form and it was nice seeing Big G come back as something for us humans to be afraid of. Gets a little lethargic before it's over, though.
Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth (1992)- Entertaining update of the original Vs. Mothra. Final fight was pretty fun to watch.
The Tales of Hoffman (1951)- Amazing to watch with elaborate sets and production values. The movie gets a little dragged down after a while with the last two stories but it's still a visual ride.
Homicide (1991)- Definitely not the movie I was expecting it to be. The writing and performances were as riveting as other Mamet films, even if it dragged at times.
Police Story (1985)- It was nice seeing a real Jackie Chan movie outside of his lesser American movies. The amazing fight scenes are all too brief and the tone of the movie can really vary up and down, but I had a good time with it.
The Searchers (1956)- Other than the focus on character depth and its amazing cinematography, it still doesn't manage to stand much taller than your average western.
Bottle Rocket (1996)- Finally caught up with this one and found it alright, it's a fun watch but nothing outstanding.
Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979)- Pretty damn funny but not a complete package like The Holy Grail.
Margot at the Wedding (2007)- Has some of the most confrontational characters I've seen in a film. There's laughs but you feel bad for doing so.
Saboteur (1942)- What is for the most part a fun thriller with a lot of great side characters but is hurt by an overlong climax.
Diabolique (1955)- After a sluggish first hour, the last has some great chills.
Human Centipede (2009)- Once you get past the premise, the movie's not terribly good save for the doctor and the slices of dark humor.
Hellboy (2004)- I love the setting and characters but the film's story follows typical Hollywood plotting a little too closely for me.
Outlander (2008)- A little of the same ol' thing brings it down but overall a pretty fun movie.
Man on Wire (2008)- A great story but it didn't pull me in as much as other docs.
The Proposal (2009)- Funnier than I thought it would be, but still a lot of the same, a pitfall of the genre.
The Daytrippers (1996)- A fun indie that ends up being better than the opening few minutes would have you believe.
Manhattan (1979)- The typical Woody Allen movie but with a little less laughs than usual. The film looks great though.
Urban Explorers: Into the Darkness (2007)- A thorough look into a specific culture.

Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989)- One I was never able to catch and was looking forward to. Too bad Biollante is barely in it and it pads the rest of the time retreading stuff from Return.
Cars (2006)- My least favorite of Pixar movies. It still has heart but the constant stream of anthropomorphic car puns and the feeling of a full-length Chevron commercial brings it down.
The Sweetest Thing (2002)- Decently funny, and it was nice seeing the shoe on the opposite gender's foot for once as far as dumb-ass comedies go, but there's still nothing here worth remembering.
Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties (2006)- More enjoyable than the first with Bill Murray actually sounding awake in this one. The tired cliched story is what really brings it down.
Fired Up (2009)- The film's two leads are great and unfortunately are the only real source of fun in it. A decent watch.
Waking Life (2001)- Sometimes pretentious, sometimes fascinating. A great experiment that wavers in how entertaining it may be.
Alfie (2004)- It feels a little lost at times but has some fun.
Better Luck Tomorrow (2002)- An entertaining first hour gives way to a final half hour of unjustified bullshit, to be frank.
Super High Me (2007)- An interesting idea but it wasn't as funny or entertaining as it would seem to be. The whole thing ends up being kind of pointless.
Gamers (2006)- Some decent laughs with it's amateurishness popping up only occasionally.
Planet 51 (2009)- About as middle of the road as a film can get. Entertaining, but just so much of the same.

Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (1994)- This one felt like it was treading water and wasn't as imaginative as the others. I actually got a little bored with this one's fight since the two Gs kept shooting the same shit at each other for extended periods of time. More of a buffer for the last one.
Antitrust (2001)- Middle of the road thriller with some interesting aspects but filled with too many laughable moments and some flat out bad writing.
Blades of Glory (2007)- There's nothing new here at all with maybe two actual laugh out loud moments.
Shadow of a Doubt (1943)- It's hard for me to accept that Hitchcock directed this one. Every character was so shrill and moronic, I wanted to scream whenever they opened their mouths.
The Ugly Truth (2009)- There's some good laughs, and it was nice seeing an R-rated rom-com for a change, but the middle was just too damn boring.

Revisits of Previously Watched Films
Spoiler:


Cinemania (2002)-
Out of Towners (1970)-
Casino (1995)-
The Odd Couple (1968)-
Trainspotting (1995)-
Gremlins (1984)-
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)-
Streets of Fire (1984)-


Godzilla: Final Wars (2004)- A lot of fans hate this one but I love it. It's a mega-sized popcorn flick event of Godzilla. The whole thing has a deliberate layer of cheese that makes it the most fun out of the Millennium Series, or Heisei series for that matter.
Traffic (2000)- Hadn't watched it in a long time and found that it's still an absorbing experience to sit through.
Pi (1998)- An intense, engrossing film that's always fascinating.
Arthur (1981)- One of my favorite comedies. I'll never get tired of it.
Batman (1989)- Watching this again, I have to say this is a much better comic book movie than The Dark Knight, only dragged down by uninteresting Vicki Vale scenes halfway through.
Three Extremes (2004)-
Mother (1996)-
Mr. Saturday Night (1992)-
Beautiful Girls (1996)-
The Jerk (1979)-
Heavy Metal (1981)-
Trick R Treat (2008)-
Clerks (1994)-


Go (1999)- Holds up well as a very funny and entertaining ensemble about one night. I don't know why it isn't as regarded as it should be. Immensely rewatchable.
Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)- This one goes for a darker approach with Big G looking flat out demonic. The fights are great and it was nice seeing one rooted in mythology after all of the technology-centric ones before hand.
Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002)- The best version of Mechagodzilla yet with a great final fight. Some of the other characters come across as hokey but it's easy to overlook.
Borat (2006)- Still hilarious and goes to lengths other movies wouldn't dare.
Mulberry Street (2006)- Great example of genuine horror filmmaking, no matter the limits.
The Comedians of Comedy (2005)- Comedian tour documentaries are always a good time.
Die Hard With a Vengeance (1995)- Entertaining like nothing else, save for the ending which falters a bit.
The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)-
Dream Team (1989)-
Groundhog Day (1993)-
Last Action Hero (1993)-
Blind Date (1987)-
Revenge of the Nerds (1984)-
Hackers (1995)-
Cecil B Demented (2000)-
Speed (1994)-
Four Rooms (1995)-
Gremlins 2 (1990)-
Prom Night 2 (1987)-
Christine (1983)-
Orgazmo (1997)-
Dazed and Confused (1993)-
Poltergeist (1982)-
Brighton Beach Memoirs (1986)-
Howard the Duck (1986)-


Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991)- Hilariously convoluted, even on a second viewing. MST3K fodder if there ever was one. It was nice seeing G beat the living hell out of Ghidorah as soon as he could.
Godzilla 2000 (1999)- A nice sense of humor keeps this from dragging too much and the final fight ends up being decent by the end. The crappy greenscreen effects take away from it.
Godzilla: Tokyo SOS (2003)- A continuation from Against but not as good to me. The fights didn't feel as epic but Mothra helped turn it into a spectacle worth seeing. Much better than I remember it being after the first time I saw it.
Bound (1996)- A fun noir that feels a little dampened after being gone from it so long. The acting feels a little stiff at times but the film is shot amazingly. Still holds up but not the shining star I used to think it was.
Robocop 2 (1990)- Unfairly maligned to me, I always enjoyed it as a fun special effects piece.
French Kiss (1995)-
Stan Helsing (2009)-
Addicted to Love (1997)-
Bebe's Kids (1992)-
Rockula (1990)-
Scary Movie 2 (2001)-
Bride of Chucky (1998)-
Follow That Bird (1985)-
The Shadow (1994)-
Pet Sematary 2 (1992)-
Terror Train (1980)-
Basic Instinct (1992)-
Prom Night 3 (1990)-
Toxic Avenger 2 (1989)-


That Old Feeling (1997)- A decent movie that really shines when Dennis Farina and Bette Midler are together. Unfortunately, they almost play in the background while your typical rom-com contrivances play out.
Strictly Ballroom (1992)- I wasn't into this one as much as I usually am during this viewing. I still liked it's energy and the climax was great.
Friday (1995)- Not as fun as it was back in the day but still an easy way to kill some time.
Anger Management (2003)-
Joe's Apartment (1996)-
Puppet Master 2 (1991)-
The Wizard (1989)-
Child's Play 2 (1990)-
Jurassic Park 3 (2001)-
Don't Be A Menace to South Central... (1996)-
The Flintstones (1995)-


Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000)- Pretty outlandish even for a Godzilla film and still it doesn't seem very entertaining until the very end. The fight starts to get good but ultimately feels anticlimactic.
Prom Night (1980)-


Batman Forever (1995)-


Bio Dome (1996)- Not a movie to revisit once you're over the age of 13. There's a couple of isolated funny scenes but more often than not it consists of two morons making stupid noises.
