Re: Interstellar (Nolan, 2014) The Reviews Thread

Okay just got back from a 'LieMax' screening.

I want to let this film digest a bit before I give a full review but my initial impressions...

-Visually arresting.
-Edge of your seat...

Is the OOP 'Ran' Criterion worth hunting down?

...or should I just get the studio canal blu-ray?

I've been on a bit of a Kurosawa kick lately, picked up the Criterions of Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Yojimbo and The Hidden Fortress. I've never...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy (Gunn, 2014) The Reviews Thread

I loved how this movie built on the Marvel universe and took us away from the avengers characters we have gotten so used to. I'm really excited for what's to come...

Re: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Reeves, 2014) The Reviews Thread

Still digesting my thought on this one, but it's a solid 7/10 for me. Entertaining, but I felt it was flawed and a tad bloated. Didn't live up to Rise imo

Re: Elysium (Blomkamp, 2013) The Reviews Thread

I loved District 9, but this disappointed me.

It's enjoyable and worth seeing - but some of the 'stupid' is unforgivable. I was hoping for more.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness (Abrams, 2013) The Reviews Thread

Saw one of the IMAX sneak peeks. I'll preface this by saying there was an 'issue' at my theatre where NONE of the IMAX footage was included and about 5 minutes in I realized it wasn't being projected...

Re: Pain and Gain (2013) (D: Michael Bay C: Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, Ed Harris)

Exactly - this is almost like Fargo with bodybuilders...but throw in the cringe inducing humor from Transformers.

Re: Pain and Gain (2013) (D: Michael Bay C: Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, Ed Harris)

Saw an advance screening of this tonight - I wanted to really like it, but ultimately it falls short. I can't help but feel that if Bay left out his awful 'trademark' humor this would have been a...

Re: Skyfall (early 2013, possibly 3/12/13)

Good news - it's already out .

Also, the skyfall disc looks just fine in the bond 50 set... The 007 logo on the disc matches the one on every other disc . Not sure if that was deliberate , but if...

Any news on any kind of program for owners of the Bond 50 set?

Re: Zero Dark Thirty -- D: Bigelow S: Chastain, Strong, Edgerton, Adkins -- 12/19/12

This is easily in my top 5 of 2012. Putting the subject matter aside; I think any story that you know the ending to has a massive uphill battle with the audience to keep them engaged, and this film...

Re: Ever been to a movie theater in a different country?

Re: The Hobbit

Loved it. Was lucky enough to see it in a HFR/Atmos set up and it may have been the most immersive film experience of my life. That first shot of Bilbo walking down his hall really had me worried...

Re: Skyfall (Mendes, 2012) The Double-O Reviews Thread

Yup, when he gets into M's car I was expecting a chase through the streets of London...instead, that's the exact moment the movie starts to derail for me. The ending wasn't bad, it just could have...

Re: Skyfall (Mendes, 2012) The Double-O Reviews Thread

I've seen it twice now; I'd easily place it in my top 5 bond films, falling short of Goldfinger and Casino Royale. It's a fantastic film, but its hard to overlook some of the flaws.

I feel it kind...

Re: 21 Jump Street (2012, D. Lord/Miller) - Hill, Tatum - The Reviews Thread

I really liked this movie a lot, may have to go see it again. The car chase is great stuff.

Re: The Hangover: Part II (Phillips, 2011) The Reviews Thread

Saw it tonight at an advance screening.

Really wanted to love it like I did the first, but it was totally underwhelming and light on the laughs. The tone is also allot darker.

2 stars.

Re: Fast Five (Fast & Furious Five) -- The Reviews and Comments Thread -- Opens 4/29/

He was hit and miss IMO, he was great in his action scenes, but when he tried to deliver one of his 'badass' one liners I cringed more often then not. I guess I'm just not a Rock fan. Don't get me...

Re: Fast Five (Fast & Furious Five) -- The Reviews and Comments Thread -- Opens 4/29/

Saw it tonight at midnight. I'll keep my thoughts brief since this type of film really is 'critic proof' ...

re: Scream 4 (Craven, 2011) - script by Williamson

That spoiler is missing allot. IMO, it won't ruin your enjoyment of the ending, or the film as a whole.

re: Scream 4 (Craven, 2011) - script by Williamson

Caught this tonight at an advance screening, I'd give it a 3 / 5..and place it higher then Scream 3, but lower then the first and second..

That being said, IMO, Scream 4 is quite different. At...
