The Devil's Playground 8/10- It's been a while since I've a good zombie movie, outside of Dead Snow. This one didn't disappoint. Danny Dyer was also pretty good in it as well. I personally would like to see him in some higher profile movies. The movie uses the 28 days and 28 weeks later zombie types which I really like.
Bardem was awesome, Craig continues to nail James Bond.
There were so many plot holes in Skyfall
It was my first bond movie, and I can't say I was impressed
Coriolanus 6/10- The acting in this movie was phenomenal. But the Shakespearean dialogue just kills the,movie for me. If you enjoy Shakespeare, you will probably love this movie. Although I had to read some in high school and never could enjoy it. I spent too much time trying to decipher what was being said and it made the movie hard to watch. Much like reading Shakespeare's work. Interesting movie overall though.
The Grey 8/10 I liked it. Really intense and sort of sad. Liam N as always was awesome.
Intolerable Cruelty: 7.5/10
Great movie. Some more writing magic from the Coens. Fun movie. The one complaint I always seem to have about their movies though is how they handle their endings. The endings never seem as good as the rest of the movie. It's either kind of phoned in or just leaves you wanting and unsatisfied.
Wreck it Ralph 7.5/10
I enjoyed the movie more of a kids movie. Wouldn't be surprised if there was a sequel lol
Just rewatched Alien and Aliens back to back last night, after not seeing them in over 10 years.
Alien still holds up supremely well. Still one of the best sci-fi movies ever made.
Aliens does not hold up as well over time. The horrible cliche characters stand out more now then ever before. And Newt made me want to shoot myself any time she was on screen.
Saw a super advance screening last night (this film doesn't come out til February 1st). Enjoyable but not what I was expecting. I was anticipating something more along the lines of Zombieland or Shaun of the Dead. Instead it is a Hollywood first: a zombie romantic comedy. So it was funny but a lot more romance and cheesy love story content than I planned for. Warm Bodies is a good date movie (the girl I went with last night really liked it) and I suspect the early February release date may have been intentionally to get it in there for Valentine's Day.
7.5 out of 10.
I've got advance screenings of Tarantino's Django Unchained tonight and The Hobbit next Tuesday. So excited.
Warm Bodies almost looks like the Twilight of zombie movies.
