Skyfall: 8/10


I thought the whole "Home Alone" sequence of booby-trapping the house was a bit lol but overall I thought it was a solid Bond film.

Savages.

Terrible, but with some highlights. Obviously just a masturbatory film from Stone. Ridiculous script and Stone in turn made a ridic film. Just an excuse to shoot sex scenes with Blake Lively and Taylor Kitsch and then zoom right up on their profiles, cause both are extremely good looking. No chemistry between the characters and even tho they can all act so some degree, it's just a bunch of posturing. Travolta is the only one who puts up a dec performance. The film does start to gel somewhat at the end. Thank God I didn't see this in theatres like I planned.

So many "what the hell am I watching?" moments. The way it messes with horror conventions is great, I went into it thinking it'd be less than completely absurd though, thanks to the first one.

My thought exactly - except I made the mistake of paying for it.

Been meaning to rewatch this for some time afta I got to talk to the director at Tiff. Great action film with just the perfect amount of corn. The whole "let's take some martial artist and shot n samurai film with matrix aesthetics in the forest gets me going. Looking forward to Ryu revisiting it in a Jap sequel or an US remake.

Joe, I really don't blame you for paying. Stone doing a cartel movie with an ensamble cast seems really good at face value.

Argo - 7/10

Not as great as I'd hoped but then I went into it knowing very little about it, besides the fact every reviewer loved it.



Bronson - 9/10

Man-crush on Tom Hardy..

How could you have seen this and not even make mention of Benicio Del Toro?

i payed, too. saw the whole cast on charlie rose. saw a few other things. terms like "classic" and "must see" and "oscars all around: were bantered about. i like stone a lot so i got in line

i liked it. i live out in la and appreciated the photography and local vibe. it looked good, and the bud was righteous. its really just a weed movie

take it as it comes

========================


oh, and i saw Prometheus. its a ridley scoot film set in space with an alien like story and a different plot. i am almost certain the stories / idea might be linked somehow because the alien life forms in the film operate much the same way. acid for blood, pods, etc

its a search for the creator, our "engineers, " and a few passengers on the trillion dollar space mission have agendas of there own which unfold during the film and surprise no one in the audience

i am knocking one point off for the "i guess thats why i am a human being and you are a robot" line at the end of the film. dumb, preachy shit

6/10

totally dumb, and featuring all the characters you've played in the mass effect series. "Hey I'm a scientist with no imperative to address myself as such, watch me deliver eye-rolling layman dialogue"

finished watching band of brothers as hbo re-ran all ten episodes for remembrance day weekend. nice to see something steven spielberg did that isn't dripping with sentimentality. all the actors were pretty good, except there were a lot of background characters and not a lot of stand-outs, except for the obvious ron livingston, damien lewis, kirk acevedo, etc. also cool to see young michael fassbender and tom hardy.

I wouldnt mind re-watching Band Of Brothers. The Pacific was also p good and your correct about Speilberg avoiding his usual sentimental horseshit (war horse).
