Rate the Last Movie You Watched

Since it looks like the original thread has disappeared:

Someone asked me before the crash whether I saw the theatrical or uncut version of Die Hard 4.0:

It was the uncut version but it was still pretty much what I expected to see. 6.5/10

I Am Legend-8/10. I'm rating this highly not because it is the best futuristic story told on film or because it is "Omega Man" on steroids but because, in my opinion, this is one of the best performances I have seen Will Smith deliver.

I haven't seen all his films and I thought he was pretty damn good in "Ali" but this is a damn fine performance.

Good Will Hunting - 10/10

I watched this movie for the first time the other night and I have to say I completely enjoyed it. The acting, the story, all of it was highly entertaining. Damon, and Affleck did a wonderful job penning this script and the depth of emotions was just fantastic.

Cloverfield 9/10
What I was expecting. the monster was ruined because my curiosity got the best of me and I saw some concept art made, but the movie still kicked ass.

8/10 because I'm kind of harsh with my ratings. Excellent film though, just watched it yesterday for the first time.

Robin Williams is the man, did you notice that the really long monologue he delivered to Damon's character in front of the lake was all done in one shot, as the camera slowly panned to finally include Damon's face in the shot? That's some really good acting and directing there.

edit - Sure enough it's on youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=EFof9AD2YlE

Forgetting Sarah Marshall - 8.5/10

This movie is fu<kin' hysterical. Several parts had me laughing so hard I almost **** my pants. Best in the "Apatow" ilk since 40 Year Old Virgin.

Cloverfield

9/10

I just wish it didn't end in a cliffhanger!

Snakes on a Plane

8/10

I actually found this quite hilarious. Watch it with a group and it becomes really funny.

Cpt.Toilet nice colored name . Was that from the RO me thread?

well, yes, as Cpt.Toilet.exe mentioned above. Did anyone catch the clue to it's origin at the very end?

If you're talking about the thing falling out of the sky, that's not the monster. JJ Abrams has said that the monster has been at the bottom of the ocean for thousands of years, only to be awakened (possibly by falling object at end) and go on a temper tantrum rampage (JJ has also confirmed that the monster is a baby, dunno how that works considering the previous statement about it being asleep for thousands of years but whatever...) People on imdb forums speak of the falling object being a piece of a satellite falling from space. Who knows.


On to the reviews!

Cloverfield - 7/10

It was soooo hyped and I don't think it quite lived up to that hype. The characters didn't really grow on me much, and though it contained plenty of scenes of panic, I didn't really feel the adrenaline pumping through me as much as I had hoped. On a side note, a 9/10 is almost a perfect masterpiece in every aspect that very few movies are actually deserving of, I think Cloverfield was more of a fun popcorn flick.

Bully - 7/10

This was a unique one. It was borderline porno with all of the sex and nudity going on! At some points it was so bad that it was good, but overall it was very enjoyable throughout

That would not make much sense because if it was dormant or whatever then you'd have to believe that the parasites on it were dormant as well.


For me, Cloverfield is a 9 because it achieved what it tried to do, which is basically portray a scenario in a manner which makes it seem very real. Of course it is not a real scenario, but without all the stereotypical trappings of a "movie" (ie - narration, climax, story structure, etc) then it becomes hard to be critical about something that seems so real. You can't really judge reality and give it a rating, so I figure that based on the realistic effects, the clever method of introducing the protagonists and moving the story along, I'd give it a 9.

Great animation. A must for car lovers.

I am Legend - 7/10

It started out great, kind of reminded me of STALKER in a sense, but then it become too small in scale

Crazy alpha zombie having a vendetta against Neville for capturing his girlfriend/mate.
and went on to have an average ending.

Cloverfield - 9/10

I was worried about two things, how they were going to justify someone carrying a camera around through that kind of catastrophe, and whether or not the shaky cam was going to be distracting ala Bourne. I think they did a good job on both counts, and the movie had me freaked out a few times, like...

When they decided to leave the tunnel maintenance area, and were creeping through the deserted hallways.

Followed the basic horror conventions, nothing really new about it though. An average watch.
