I thought The Hurt Locker was amazing until the part where Jeremy Renner's character takes off with his team into the night and one of the guys gets shot in the leg. That action just didn't seem to go with the Renner character's previous actions. Still easily a 9/10 though, wonderful movie.

Unicorn: yeah we both still liked the Hurt Locker "one point more", and I guess that's what matters.

Also docodine: I've seen the Moon, liked it as well (8/10). Also seen Sunshine, which I didn't like as much (6/10).

Sunshine was good until it got bad. I think that's a pretty good way to resume it.

True that. Generally I don't like scifi too much anyway, Moon was good, Sunshine wasn't. That's about it for me.

I saw it! I follow the director on Twitter too (of course, that makes us best buds and me celebrity etcetc). Also how was Moon less suspense than Sunshine (at the end)?

Also: Sam Rockwell was in Iron Man 2??

Sunshine is one of my favourite movies. Of ALL TIME. I'm a complete sucker for futuristic storylines and space flight though, so that probably has a lot to do with it. Honestly, for me it's a 9/10. Killian Murphy is awesome in it. You can't even tell he's Irish Not that there's anything wrong with being Irish, I'm just saying that he does a convincing American accent.

Pulp Fiction
10/10

I actually just started watching this again, but having seen it a couple of times it's still going to be 10/10. Easily my Tarantino favorite, and one of favorites all-round.

Want some cheese with that royale? So many classic lines.

EDIT: "Oh man I shot Marvin in the face" christ this just gets better.

8/10

Quite funny, easy watching, completely stupid doesn't take itself seriously at all. Great feel good movie (esp. for 80s music and fashion) with some decent acting by everyone bar John Cusack, who is 90% wet fish. You can see his gills.

Awesome for the time, surprisignly violent, and furbies that turn evil. What's not to love about classics?

Iron Man
8.5/10
In preparation for the second one, I rewatched the first one. Still an awesome movie, and Gwynneth Paltrow with dear-eyes... Love every second of it. Now thye must just bring Iron man 2 on DVD/BR

Thinking about it again, Moon might have been more suspenseful but there wasn't really anything scary.. Finding the body in the rover, the true purpose of the thing he had to lay inside, the clone bank, etc. It was definitely better than Sunshine, but there was the whole Pinbacker thing.. There wasn't a clear antagonist in Moon.

Sam Rockwell played the Hammer guy in Iron Man 2, Robert Downey Jr's rival.

OK so I watched my first blaxploitation film...

Coffy (1973)

5/10
Nice message, nice music, but it's just ridiculous how in EVERY SINGLE FIGHT SCENE the tits are out. Like literally, someone gets angry, women's shirts are pulled off within seconds. Acting was horrible, but I guess it has kitschy charm..

Watching Wristcutters now, not my favorite..

Toy Story 3 on FRIDAY!

The Departed
8/10
It was a pretty good movie, even if it was a bit predictable at times. The acting was all very good, especially Jack Nicholson and DiCaprio. I didn't care much for the girl in the movie, as her character was pretty uninteresting(I don't even remember the character's or the actress' name). Anyways like I said, overall good movie with an interesting story and (for the most part) interesting characters.

Seemed more predictable than the previous (maybe It's just me being older..), but still one of the best Pixar movies ever. Great new characters, sad that some of the old ones are gone though.. I miss Bo Peep and RC. Messes with your emotions like a good Pixar movie should, though not as much as Up did. Ken/Barbie interaction was hilarious.

I was actually a little disappointed by Moon when I saw it. I rented it on the back of Tom Francis' recommendation on his excellent blog but it just seemed to amble along without any real purpose until the last few mins.

I guess I can understand why people like it, its fairly compelling and you've gotta be a pretty good actor to hold peoples attention on your own for that long. It all just seemed a little inconsequential to me.

Rating: 6.5/10

(Brief) Reasons: For a documentary on bodybuilding, I expected a lot more in depth stuff on the subject, instead all I found was some vague training clips and competition posing. There were a few gems in there when the BB-ers spoke about their motivation, especially Arnie, but it didn't go into as much depth as I'd like.

I hated Sunshine because of its flimsy science-less pretext. Could they not think of a better reason for two big spacecraft to go on a crucial mission into the inner solar system? After that it just made me a sad panda.

Stunning visuals and great acting don't make up for a ruined plot for me.

Yes, shitty science, but I have it in DTS-ES and it's atmosphere is spine tingling phenomenal.

I started watching the Russian movie STALKER from 1979 only seen 45 mins so far, will comment later.

Sunshine was ok until it started to be a ripoff of Event Horizon. Then everything went downhill.

Title: Event Horizon

Rating: 8.5/10

Originally Posted by wikipedia
In the year 2047, a signal from the starship Event Horizon is received on Earth. The ship disappeared beyond Neptune in 2040. The ship has reappeared in a decaying orbit around Neptune, and the rescue ship Lewis and Clark is dispatched. The ship is commanded by Captain Miller and carries crew members, Executive Officer Starck, the ship's pilot Smith, Peters, Engineer Justin, Rescue Tech Cooper, D.J., and the Event Horizon's designer, Doctor William Weir.

When the Lewis and Clark arrives, Dr. Weir briefs the crew that the Event Horizon was built to test an experimental gravity drive. In layman's terms, the drive would create an artificial black hole, and would use that power to bridge two points in spacetime to reduce journey time. The ship was on its initial test flight when it vanished. Weir plays the only signal received since the ship's reappearance, spoken by the ship's captain: a series of Latin phrases embedded under screams and shouts.
A horror movie at its finest. The main plot is a bit predictable, but it still scared the **** out of me when I watched it for the first time. Actually everytime I watch it. Basically it's everything Sunshine could have been.

Say Angels and Demons the other. Film was alright but it was very plot heavy, I get the feelingt Id have to watch it several times to fully understand it, but I got the general gist. Pretty good acting etc although very conspiracy theory heavy as you might guess from a dan brown adaptation. 8/10.
