The Prestige.



I think Christopher Nolan intentionally wants his fans to think of multiple thoughts and endings for his movies.

I really wasn't interested in this story and only went to see this because it was a David Fincher film.

That being said the story was quite interesting and, from a directorial point of view, it seemed to me to be a very un-Fincher-like film.

I really think the movie looked as if it could have been directed by any competent director. Fincher is a competent director and the story was interesting after all.

Was also referring to the actress herself. To me she brought more life and personality to the character than the actor for KickAss(how he played the character reminded me of micheal cera, boring)

Just saw the movie, and the part in bold struck with me.

Definitely she was brilliant in the part. Her and Cage stole the show.

I, Robot-8/10

I don't mind revisiting this film.


Boy-6/10

An entertaining enough father/son comedy from New Zealand. Very quaint (that's about the only word I can think of at the moment to describe it).

Downfall-9/10

This German language film tell the story of the last days of Hitler and the Reich from real-life accounts from people who were actually there in the Berlin bunker at the end of World War 2. A lot of the film occurs in the bunker but there is a lot of other stuff around quite a well done ruined Berlin.

I saw this a couple of years ago but:

Spoiler Warning! (move mouse over box below to reveal)
The scene in the bunker when Himmler's wife poisons her children because she can't have them live in a world where there is no National Socialism is particularly harrowing.

(Human beings: We really do some f***ed up sh*t).


The guy in this flick who played the part of Hitler deserves an award for his role; if he hasn't already won one, that is.


Raiders of the Lost Ark-9/10

I don't know how many times I have seen this film. In my opinion it remains one of the best, if not the best, action films ever made. It really rewrote the book on action films when it came out.

The Social Network 7/10

Andy Sorkin's dialog is awesome as expected, and it is a very un-Fincher like film, but still very enjoyable. Did not go in with expectations (beyond its metacritic rating) and despite being a non-Facebooker I thought this was interesting. Jesse Eisenberg proves he can do completely different roles in this as well (after seeing him in Zombieland).

Up In The Air 7/10

I liked the characterization in this one alot, even though I can't really tell you what the point of it was. Just a decent movie with a couple of good scenes. Dunno if I can say any more about it.

Die Hard 4.0 - 8/10 or 4.0/5

Over the top action movies like this one is definitely a weak spot for me. Don't shoot me for saying this, but I enjoyed it more than all prequels including the first one . I'm not so sure about Timothy Olyphant as

bad guy
though.

I can't bring myself to watching Die hard 4. Something tells me it's going to be a slap in the face disappointment.

Well, if you're like me and love ridiculously over the top non stop action. And if you don't mind the plot being something similar to Hackers then you probably wouldn't be disappointed :P

A little warning though, it's a movie that definitely shouldn't be taken seriously!

ps, I forgot to mention in my review. Loved Silent Bob's cameo as Warlock :P

If you do decide to watch it, try and get the uncut version. The PG-13 version just does not do it justice.

It's just that I found "die hard 3" to be a great thrill. It was imo up to par with the first movie.
And this fourth.. well, I could be wrong about it though. Eh, maybe I will watch it one day Not in a hurry...

F-35 scene in that movie made me cry. Hacker boy made my brother (a CS major) cry. Underground complex where he fought the ninja Russian made my Dad (a mechanical engineer) cry.

Oh come on, I'm a CS graduate and I can suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy fake hacking antics. People would be bored to tears if a mainstream show/movie used actual hacking techniques.

What a whiny family.

Fargo 8/10
The snow-shoveling guy telling the officer what he saw always cracks me up.

Simply, there are better action movies that don't use as much bull. Like the other Die-Hards.

Can't believe you and your whiny family expected a movie called Die Hard 4.0 to be completely realistic

That being said, Die Hard 4.0 is ridiculous but honestly it doesn't really come as much of a surprise.
