    I recently watched Ridley Scott's adaptation of Robin Hood with my dad. I avoided it because everyone told me it was a boring, bad movie. My dad bought it on Bluray because he quite enjoys Russell Crowe's work.

    And you know what?

    I really enjoyed it. :shrug:

    Sure, the whole "Magna Carta" theme was totally half-baked, but I still thought it was a fun movie.

    That, plus the fact that I'll watch just about anything with Cate Blanchett. ;)

    I just finished watching Peaceful Warrior. I've seen it twice now. I'd recommend anyone give it a watch. You don't need to be into all the 'self help' stuff to enjoy it - I'm not. But who knows, you may get something from it anyway.
    I just think it's a genuinely enjoyable film :)

    Watched "Hero" yesterday for the first time since I saw it in like 03/4, and to be honest, I enjoyed it FAR more NOW that I understand (and agree with) the utilitarian views that Broken Sword was trying to help Snow and Nameless see.

    Just recently saw the Beck (Mongolian Chop Squad) live action movie. Not bad. Note to self and go through Linda Linda Linda and Black Swan whenever possible soon.

    For the hundredth time;

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly 10/10

    One of the single greatest movies ever put to film IMO, and as if it wasn't good enough to begin with, the last hour or so of the movie just soars to new heights. I've never really been able to pick "a" favorite movie, always three or four at best, but seeing this again finally I think it definitely takes that place.

    :agreed: I thoroughly enjoyed it (very last scene aside...). I'd still rather watch the old 30s one with Errol Flynn, but so far as remakes/universal stories go, it was quite well done :yesway:

    The Descent 2 - Same thing as the first one,nothing has changed so........hmn........nothing to say......:wallbash: ............... :lol:

    Paranormal Activity (2007) - Hmn Blair Witch Project in a bedroom?Very predictable and boring and who knows why a supernatural entity would leave footsteps.That actress is hot ;)

    Paranormal Activity 2 (2010) - The same as the first 1 but it's less boring.Thank god for showing her hot ( o Y o ) which are the best thing in the movie.

    I watched Ong Bak every Friday for the last three weeks. I watched all three movies in the series in a row Friday before last and enjoyed them all, despite parts 2 and 3 seeming like that should just be a completely different series.

    30 Days of night (2007) - I like it.Story goes nowhere still it kept me wanting to know the end.Imagery is cool and NOT having dumb vampires falling in love for skinny ugly teens was awesome.They speaking in a different language turned it darker.I was expecting for another "hey look I can put 30 effects per second" stuff but it was a surprise.
    If you just want some fun before falling asleep.......... this is it :agreed:

    I watched The Green Hornet, and The Kings Speech

    Hornet was hilarious, and I liked it.
    King's Speech was awesome, but I still think I liked Black Swan a lot better, plot/story wise.

    It was not great by any means, but if you like ninjas and fighting in general you should like it. :lol:

    I love Ninjas, and fighting, etc. None of the above made up for the shit directing, shit plot, shit acting and painfully large amounts of on-screen exposition. Not to mention, this is how they think a superior officer talks to a lower ranked cop:

    Mika: "You believe it now, don't you?"

    Mika's boss: "Ninjas? Are you kidding?"

    Mika: "Then why are you doing this?"

    Mika's boss: "No idea, but I can guarantee you that it has nothing to do with the fact that you're the most attractive researcher that I've ever worked with.

    :lol: It was just plain awful. It also pissed me off because they used the Wachowski's name to market the film but then you stay for the credits and find out they had nothing to do with filming it.
