Womb. 5/10 . Acting is good but i find the idea of cloning even among animals repelling and against my beliefs

The movie is very slow paced as well which some may find boring.

That's one of my favorite topics actually....not wombs, but pacing.

 

There is a difference between a film that is "deliberately paced" and one that is just plain slow. The two examples I use to illustrate this point are 1) The Assassination of Jesse James and 2) just about any Jim Jarmusch film. The Jesse James film was one that I found pretty damn entertaining, but I know people who didn't lke it at all because they thought it was slow. This is a film that, for me, falls into the "deliberately paced" category. True, it's not all gunfights and action sequences...it's mostly dialogue driven. People can be turned off by that. Jim Jarmush (my favorite director) makes films that may have a guy sitting on a bed doing seemingly nothing for like ten straight minutes, but that is his art. I find it REALLY interesting. Again, it's deliberately paced....not "slow". A "slow" film to me is one that doesn't advance the story. It has nothing to do with action and explosions or whatever. Some people just need that sort of thing in order to keep their attention, and I understand that point of view. I just happen to also appreciate films like the ones I mentioned above, too.

This Means War, 3.5/10

A romantic comedy spy thriller that wasn't very funny, thrilling, or romantic. I thought that it might have some edgy humor along the lines of Spy vs. Spy but it didn't.

Flying Swords of Dragon Gate Inn
5/10 as movie
9/10 as entertainment

The Watch (2012) 6.2/10
Thought this comedy/sci-fi might hold it's own until the halfway point,when it came unraveled.
Stiller,Vaughn and Hill couldn't prop up this ghostbuster/mall cop circus.
Life revolves around Costco? Heh...
Just like watching Oliver Stone's Savages (2012) 6.5/10,nice cast with an ineffective story.

Just rewatched "Get Carter"

 

1970s England. Another world... Being fair-minded, I have looked at a bit of the remake just to make sure I didn't think it was terrible on reflex... Nope. It was definitely out of condition and Michael Caine did that for a living.

 

Lead me to Harry Brown, while I was being bleak. He is really good. Overacting histrionic Hollywooders take a hint (Of course, I already know that "Liam Neeson Doesn't Take Notes - particularly with improvisational comedy...").

 

And finally,  "Attack the Block".  low budget Science Fiction and Urban Grime done well, with imagination, and skillfully-enough written to make you side with some frankly horrible embryo gangsters by reason of character development, rather than just "Them v Aliens" jeopardy;    

 

Even the near unintelligible street slang (just stick with it, you'll get into it) nailed it without sounding like Tim Westwood.

 

And No Danny Dyer. (Or at least I hope there wasn't...)

 

(Oh this wasn't all in one binge...)

Skyfall (9/10)

The best Bond film of the Craig era. Beautifully constructed film, excellent acting, good story with perfect pacing, not too slow, not too fast.

Overall, I enjoyed it a lot.

The real one? I saw it recently and thought the visuals hasn´t really aged well. But it´s still as good of a movie. I´ts nothing like blue planet though. you just can´t beat mother nature.
