I enjoyed 30 Days of Night somewhat, but the vampires should have just spoken in english. It's not scary/clever to have vampires talk in some dumb, made up language.
Also, their screeching got on my ****ing nerves.

Eragon - 2/5

The casting for this movie was so bad.

Christiane F

A real downer of a film. It's about heroin addiction but it feels a lot more real than films like Requiem or even Trainspotting, though at the same time it's far less entertaining. The scene with Christiane and Detlev locking themselves in a room to try and get off it is particularly horrible. The acting is good and you can't argue with a David Bowie soundtrack (and a small appearance) but I doubt i'll ever watch it again. 6.5/10

God, the last few films i've watched have all been seriously depressing. I think I need something more upbeat.

Yeah man, sometimes a break is necessary. Watching so many sincerely depressing movies in a row can be awful.

Zodiac (2007) - 10/10

Wait, why does David Fincher get so much praise for Fight Club and Se7en, and not this? Both don't hold a candle to this movie. From begin to finish the intensity never lets up.
This movie is a masterpiece in the thriller and mystery genre. Im still awe struck, ****ing incredible.

Before the Devil Knows your Dead

It's weird. I put it on, and I fell asleep twenty minutes in. I was really immersed, too. Then I watched some basketball and restarted it.

And it tooootally clicked.

Okay, so the first bit is a little bit odd. The "it's going backwards lol!" arrangement of scenes was, well, kind of lame at first. I've gotten sick of that shtick. But as it goes on, it stops working backwards. It works forwards. Backwards. Sideways. All over.

In essence, it's about a heist gone wrong. But you can't even begin to imagine just how wrong it went. Seriously, it's bad. And the kicker is, you find out pretty much every bad thing that's happening to the characters like 30 minutes in, and yet you're still shocked every time it's re-introduced. Moreso, you feel twice as bad, and it multiplies, with every scene that goes on.

So yeah, while the first 30 minutes left a bit to be desired, Marisa Tomei is naked pretty much the entire time. Sure, it's about ten years too late, but I'll take it.

And, weirder is the fact that the movie gets increasingly better as she gets decreasingly naked. Who knew?

I'd say it's a strong, strong 9/10. Hell, I even sort of liked Ethan Hawk in it. Sort of.

I totally agree. A lot of people are probably turned off by a 2h30m dialogue driven crime story but ****, it's their loss.

I completely agree. Se7en is so overrated.

Se7en is great, but Zodiac is essentially a much better version of it.

Jackass 2.5


5.5/10 idk




Zodiac was mediocre at best. Probably because I saw some Zodiac special on some crime show many years ago and thought it was such an awesome story that I just had too high expectations for the movie.
