    LINCOLN

    A super early advance screening (studio rep said we were the "first in Minnesota" to see it) as this doesn't come out til December. Overall it was boring and somewhat disappointing given the cast and director Spielberg. Daniel Day Lewis was a good Lincoln but the content did not give him a whole lot to work with I think. Joseph Gordon Levitt is practically a cameo character, having maybe 2 dozen lines. The whole film felt fairly messy and will be hard to follow for many. At almost 3 hours, Lincoln would be better off as a rental, TV movie or redone as a HBO mini-series.

    2 out of 5

    Wreck-It Ralph



    Just got back from an advance screening of Wreck-It Ralph, which was a ton of fun. Really a solid family film. Some great video game references. OMG fell in love with the omega super adorable Vanellope von Schweetz, the little girl played my Sarah Silverman. All the voice actors were perfect choices and nailed their parts.

    Honestly, my adult critic side wants to give it a 3 or 3.5 but my inner child & gamer side is totally for a 4 out of 5!

    It's 1 of 2 ways:

    a) I am part of an online site that sends me the advance screening passes
    or
    b) I actively find them since Minneapolis seems to have a lot of them. We must be a hot spot for movie market research?

    I wish PSU had a section for movie reviews, because I totally would do a bunch of them! :3

    Up next, Cloud Atlas on Monday! It's my most anticipated film of the season so hope it doesn't disappoint!

    So would you say Wreck-It Ralph is a movie for gamers? Cause that's the only reason I would watch it, for the game references. I mean the minute I saw Mega Man and Zangief in the trailer, I was curious.

    Looking forward to what you think about Cloud Atlas. I'm curious about that one, too.

    Mmm I wouldn't say for all gamers, probably not as much as say the Scott Pilgrim movie was. Wreck-It Ralph is still very much a movie for the kids. It definitely helps with getting a lot of the references here and there, but I wouldn't say there's a lot of them. Being a kid at heart is the most important factor I would say on how much someone will enjoy the movie. Being a gamer makes it better.

    ARGO: 9/10

    Ben Affleck does it again! He's just so damn good as a director, maybe he should stick to that instead of contract jobs with shitty actresses with shitty personalities like J-CUNT, I mean J-Lo.

    No, Argo was a great film, a nod to all films of the 70's and 80's, despite that not being the main story, but based on a true, declassified story, by ex-CIA man, Tony Mendes, who is played by none other than Ben Affleck. The writing is great for this, as well as the editing. It literally keeps you in suspense in some parts, especially near the end, no thanks to the editing and wonderful writing. This is definitely getting some Oscar noms.

    The Campaign, with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. The movie had some funny parts and told somewhat of the sad truth about politicians, but I felt a little disturbed by some of raunchiness...and of course the baby hitting. :P

    Some really crappy acting on the lead mans part he kept doing Stevie wonder head shakes, I dont want to know how bad the rest of the takes were if these were the best.
    It entertained me but when the parker guy spoke I was cringing.

    Avengers gets a 9/10 from me. If Captain America was a good actor, I would have gone a full 10.

    Cloud Atlas Mini-Review

    CLOUD ATLAS


    Just got back from an advance screening of Cloud Atlas - an inspirational, moving epic film. There are some truly poetic scenes and lines of dialogue. It's also a visual feast at times. My mind is still trying to wrap around the whole story, featuring multiple time periods and clocking in at almost 3 hours. But by the end, it really finds itself despite lacking a "boom" revelation. Yet that's fine, especially if you are a hopeless romantic or believer in the human spirit.

    A solid 4 out of 5.

    If you haven't heard, seen, or read anything about Cloud Atlas, check out this great extended trailer:

    Nice, I can't wait to see it! The writing alone must have been really hard because each actor plays 4-6 characters in the movie.
