It was okay. I thought Ashton Kutcher was a good Steve Jobs actually.

Wait what? I seen that movie and I couldn't finish it because it was boring. I Saw The Devil is the best revenge movie ever.

Not really a movie but I watched a lot of this last night. Watched two seasons and I'm finally catching up. Currently on season 5



Sorry it isn't a movie I guess.

@JizzInMyPants - So happy I'm not the only one who feels this way. The Raid 2 is literally the essential action film. If Gareth Evans, the director, isn't able to make a Metal Gear Solid/Mortal Kombat film in his time, I don't know what the hell is wrong with this world. He's a master of crafting suspenseful action set pieces and a big-budgeted video game adaptation would be right up his alley. If you enjoyed The Raid 2, you should try and track down A Bittersweet Life and I Saw the Devil as well (brilliant action/revenge films that border on being horror films as well, very similar to The Raid films).

I just watched The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and, while I did enjoy it quite a bit, I really hated how many times the heroes get captured throughout the film, they might as well have called these films "The Captured" instead of "The Hobbit" at this point. Plus, all of the coincidences and "close calls" throughout were really, really, really annoying. Like the Aragorn actor Viggo Mortensen said, I still think that these Lord of the Rings films are getting worse and worse because of the overuse of CGI. The Fellowship of the Ring only used CGI when it was absolutely necessary, while the rest of the films slowly begun to get bogged down by the effects (case in point with these Hobbit films).

Still, I did enjoy the film, but not as much as the first instalment surprisingly, I hated how long they waited before finally showing us Smaug. He's the title character, and he's probably in it for about 20 minutes of a 2 and 1/2 hour runtime. Really disappointing. I'd give the first instalment a 4/5, but this one gets a 3/5, I was really expecting it to be better than the original, but it ended up feeling like a real "been there, done that" type of affair. But, hey! It'd probably make for a great drinking game (drink every time someone gets captured).

Last movie I watched was the painfully pretentious Double Down. Not a documentary about greasy chicken-based fast food as the title would imply. If The Room was a spy movie, it would be Double Down. It contained more shots of a former real estate agent's lumpy, sunburned buttocks than I ever wanted to see.

While I don't think it's as great as most people claim it is, I still found it to be a breeze to get through mainly because Chris Evans is so darn likeable as Captain America that you can't help but root for him. The giant gunships were stupid as hell though, how could Nick Fury be so blind in thinking that that would be a good idea? Just didn't make sense to me. That Zola scene was creepy as hell though, and the final action scene, between The Winter Solider and Cap, was pretty intense in terms of both action and emotion. I really liked Cap's fighting style in this film, he moves faster than ever before, and the cameras can finally keep up with him, something that was lost in the other instalments he's been in (where they would normally rely on quick cuts to give the illusion that he's a super-fast super solider). I'd give the film a 4/5, I was expecting it to be a bit better though based off all the reviews, but it still delivered the goods, and The Winter Solider made for a great villain (I just wish there was more of him, since we don't really see him until a third of the way through).

I seen both of those already, bittersweet lift, first time watching it was alright, but, I dunno, for some reason i just kept going back to it, it gets better every time, so much replay value.

I saw the devil is the shit

I suggest to you, The Man from No Where. And Joint Security Area, the latter isn't an action flick, and starts off quite boring, but it pays off in an unexpecting way.

The Americans - Season 1

Damn good, the main characters are KGB spies. Mostly thriller/action/ interesting family drama.

Nice. I'll mark those films down. Thanks for the recommendations, man. I'm starting to really get into foreign movies in general. Letters From Iwo Jima is one of my favourites, Ken Watanabe is outstanding in it and it should have won so many more awards than it received (it's Clint Eastwood's best directed film as well, Mystic River and Unforgiven come close, but Iwo Jima is so powerful on all fronts, a one-of-a-kind film).
