Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Really enjoyed the Ender's Game movie. Nowhere near as good as the book, but still solid.

Just drifted my way through Pacific Rim. Good action but the plot and dialogue was weak. If I was 12 again I would have loved it. Decent rental.

I loved the homage to the old school and the anime scene with this one. One of my favorite popcorn flicks in the past couple years.

Room 237 is so dumb it is just a collection of people's hair brain idea's of what Kuback was trying to do in the moive. Complete left field the whole movie; don't waste your time.

Hey did you see this: A Prophet (2009) - IMDb "Un Prophete"

Holy shit, really well written screenplay, can be alittle confusing sometimes with so many things going on in the end. But the suspence building sequences were probably some of the best on film ive seen.

Id read about this movie a couple years ago, finally queued it and wow. Immediately in my top 5 foreign movies all time. Pick it up if you havent viewed it.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

The Wolf of Wall Street was a good movie, I'm hesitant to call it great because the ending is kinda flat (although if you've read the book it basically follows the ending of the book) but other than that I enjoyed it.

Anchorman 2, well I wish I had stayed home from that. I still love the original, and I knew the previews didn't look that good but me and fam went and saw it anyways. It's disappointing. I'm sure it's really hard for directors to capture the magic that made the first movie what it was, but I suspect in a few months I'll have erased this movie from my memory.

Of yeah, for sure... Un Prophete was my favorite foreign flick the year it came out. I remember being disappointed that it lost to The Secret In Their Eyes that year... The Academy rarely delivers. Lots of cool symbolism in Un Prophete. Dug the score, too.

Went to see a double feature-

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty-9/10 Got to love Ben Stiller! Different role for him!
Grudge Match-8/10 Kevin Hart was a little annoying and funny at the same time.

Went to see Her and loved it. If you're a tech nerd, you'll love it. Moving and very thought provoking. Also hilarious in some parts.

Plus, who doesn't want to listen to Scarlett Johansson having an O? That made it worth it all alone.
