4/5

Beautiful film on all accounts but



SEMI SPOILER



while I don't have any real negative feelings towards Sandra Bullock, I don't think she's a strong enough actress to carry a film like this and her performance at times really dragged it down.

I thought she was really good.

I'm sure there may have been "better" choices but I can't really think of any off the top of my head.

Interestingly enough I thought her more subtle moments("I had a daughter") that called for better acting were well done. It was just in the more in your face moments of panic that I think she fell short.

Jessica Chastain comes to mind as an actress who I feel would have killed it

That last overly dramatic scene in Zero Dark Thirty made me dislike Jessica Chastain

Just way too try-hard and lame

Though I could see she might have been a good choice for Gravity

the lamest part of zd30 was that scene where it was obvious they were about to get blown the fuck up but somehow none of them saw it coming

7/10

Decent enough film, the music is by far the best thing about it.

I didn't see Zero Dark Thirty past the first half hour. I wound up having to leave and I never had much interest in finishing it.



I watched 12 Years a Slave today. Solid 4/5. I preferred shame overall but this was exceptionally well done. Give Chiwetel Ejiofor the Oscar. I need to watch Hunger.

I thought the movie was pretty good all in all. Just the closing scene for me.

Dumb. Ridley Scott was not the right choice to direct Cormac McCarthy's script.

Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows

i liked it just was well as the first. if they make another, and i am sure they will, it could use some freshening. i found myself going back a moment sometimes, to catch what was going on in the movie. the villain, and his motives, were often vague to me. he didn't make much sense. but i guess he was a "madman" sort of guy. guy ritchie's direction is over stylized imo but the film moves along well nonetheless 3 /4


World War Z

Fairly useless zombie movie with brad pit. it's been two weeks since watching it and i am already having a hard time remembering it. like many movies in this genre it has plot holes you can drive a truck through but can forgive because the movie delivers on its own terms. it scares you or makes you squirm or laugh or hold your breath. this movie does none of that while ripping off Aliens, 28 Days Later, and even the video game Left For Dead. i'm sure these are supposed to be "homages" and it was amusing to see people fighting zombies with a fire ax, baseball bat, and crowbar. but the rest of the movie is so lame

how lame? one entire city in the world is SAFE. they have built a wall, and inside people sing and dance and live in peace wtf. and outside the city tens of thousands of zombies are trying to get in. are they bombing them? nah. nor are they setting them on fire or even spitting on them? no,they wait until zombies breach the wall to start killing them, although armed to the teeth and with an air force. and these are the jews. they'd have already blown 'em all to shit, let alone let them build a "zombie ladder" (i kid you not) outside and get over it. lots of dumb, nonsense stuff like that in this movie. rent if bored and want some cheap scares and unintended laughs 2/4
