The Movie review Thread

Kinda self explanatory. Just put any movie you want to review up. It doesnt have to be an all out summary just a yea or nay on the movie. Maybe rate them on a scale from 1-10 or something too(1-it sucks, 5-pretty normal, 10-best movie ever!). Ill start:

Ghostrider-8, a typical Marvel film (ie X-Men)
Epic Movie-5, funny just in a few parts.
Talladega Nights-9,
The Punisher-7, kind of mob like IMO.

Those are the only ones Ive really seen lately so post urs up!

We'll go with the two I watched today...

The Last Boy Scout - 7
Damon Wayans and Bruce Willis (plus that 'sum bitch guy from Distiquished Gentleman)... Bruce Willis is basically the same guy he is in Die Hard... Damon Wayans is an ex-football star... Good action, decent plot, some snappy one-liners... Oh, and Billy Blanks shoots himself and Halle Berry is a stripper who gets nearly naked... Both of which should be included in EVERY movie IMHO... Think Lethal Weapon meets Die Hard then has a bastard love child who somewhat resembles Beverly Hills Cop (though not nearly as funny)... If you've never seen it, it makes a quality rental...

The Departed - 9
Wow... Excellent plot, enough twists and turns to keep you guessing... and just when you think it's going to end... There's more action... Solid casting too with Jack Nicolson, Matt Damon, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Mark Walberg, and Leo Dicaprio... Scorcese (sp?) is the mob movie god... and he proves it again with this movie...

The Prestige 9 VERY good movie... keeps you guessing through out the whole movie... good plot with good acting... never really been a fan of Christian Bale... but he's awsome in this movie...

Wild Hogs 7 Very funny.... a bit drawn out in some places... but an all star cast and a decent plot keep you laughing through most of it. I'd have gone with a 6 but Marissa Tommei being as hot as she is... and it's about riding... so that bumped it up!

My movie guru buddy said that The Prestige was not nearly as good as The Illusionist...

The Illusionist - 9
Edward Norton... always awesome... Paul Giamotti (sp?) in the first role I have ever seen him in that he wasn't the spastic twitchy guy... both turned out top notch performances... Excellent plot... I actually figured out what was going on pretty quickly, but it would be very easy to be completely surprised as the movie progresses... I liked it so much I never returned it to the rental place...

Now that you have a new found respect for Christian Bale... Check out The Machinist...

The Machinist - 8
I have no idea WTF is going on with this movie... I started drinking early on and the movie was so screwed up that I just got wasted... Christian Bale weighs 120lbs and is horribly frightening looking in this movie (Batman Begins he weighed in the 190 range)... It's crazy screwed up and if I could understand it (and wasn't driven to drinking) I would have scored it much higher...

I didnt like the Illusionist, cause you'll figure it out in like the first 10min of the movie.

Oldboy - 10 - Really screwed up movie. A guy gets locked in a room (like a hotel room, with a bed, tv, bathroom etc..) fed daily, basically taken care of, but he can't leave. He's locked in there for 15 years....than one day he just gets released. He than has to go find out why. Amazing movie, excellent screwed up ending. Check it out...and I hope you don't mind subtitles

I don't mind subtitles or screwed up movies... I will have to check that out... One subtitled screwed up movie is High Tension...

High Tension - 7
If crazy f*cked up foreign horror movies are your thing... Watch this movie... NC-17 because of the CRAZY amount of gore... Not Kill Bill fake spraying fountains, but pretty true to life sick stuff... The plot is solid with enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. The subtitles/dubbing that overlap eachother take away from the experience slightly... Just enough to keep it from an 8...

Wild Hogs -9

I dont know about you all but I loved this movie. It had me laughing the entire time! I really enjoyed it and think it really applied to all ages also! I highly recommend seeing it in theaters.

Reno 911- 5

Funny movie as expected. Not worth the ridiculous amount of money it costs to go to the movies today. This one was definitely one that showed all the good parts in the previews and you can wait for it to come out on dvd for!! However... the whale scene happens to be the best

Borat- well, wasnt worth my time to watch. its supposed to be funny, but to me, it was just boring. I give this movie a 3 on a scale of 1-10.

Saw 3- absolutely INSANE movie and totally awesome. not for those with weak stomachs or low tolerances to gore. pretty much the whole movie is one giant gorefest. I rate this one a solid 10.
