Michael Clayton was a good, intelligent thriller with style, I wouldn't mind seeing that one again myself.

The American - 1/10. George Clooney eats a sandwich. I really didn't like this, it just felt like some guy wandering around and most of the action sequences were in the trailers.

Sorry, for some reason I couldn't get into this. It seems like the type of movie I would normally love. All the acting is very good, especially Tom Wilkinson.

The entire movie felt like it went nowhere, but I did like one section of it. Liked all the characters, but not much of what happens in the movie! This is very rare for me..

 

IDK, I liked the movie. Of course nothing much happens physically, mostly its about the change in perspective of the old guys and gals.

Yep. Intelligent and very different. I haven't seen many movies on corporate legal issues.

Kwaidan: 8/10

Poetry in motion; seemingly classic Japanese folklore rolled into one beautiful film.

Can I fault it? Not really, except the climax is telegraphed moments (long moments for modern movie-watchers) before it strikes.

My favorite of the collection of films is definitely "Hoichi the Earless." Visually, quite impressive and the story is fantastic.

Just watched this a couple of weeks ago. Really wonderful and strange film. The set design especially stuck out to me--utterly bizarre but completely perfect.

I actually love this movie. May have been my favorite movie the year it was released. Just sayin.' ^^

Are you allowed to give a 0/10?

No seriously... 1 is way too high of a rating for that one.....

I am truly sorry you had to endure watching. I should have warned you. I take full responsibility.

Edit:

Oh pleeeez someone argue with me on this one.... I'll gladly take shots at this one all day and all night........ It might help serve as retribution in my mind for the 105 minutes of my life I wasted watching that film.

Actually no, don't argue, I am kidding..

Is that the Clooney film where he was staying in the small Italian village, gets the gun in the mail that he puts together, takes a woman to a picnic lunch by the lake, etc? If so, yeah, that was a piece of crap. I'm embarrassed I even remember those scenes!

I just refer to it as the movie he eats a sandwich in.

Well it certainly seems like you are trolling for one (an argument) when you post such a negative rating right after somebody states that it was their favorite movie of the year.

These are all subjective opinions, nobody's right or wrong. The consensus opinion on The American is right down the middle, not special and not terrible. Perhaps a bit polarizing though.

Since you hated it so much, I bumped it to the top of my queue just to test our theory!

lol...it never did get much more exciting than that. I enjoyed seeing the Italian scenery, but the movie itself was poor. Last two Clooney films I liked were Up in the Air (far better than I expected) and the Descendants. Both of those were pretty good. I still want to see The Good German, but reviews were luke warm.

Probably one of the most riveting scenes then.

Oh you forgot the whole point of the movie... He has to make this rifle for some insane amount of money.... If I only had her number I could have texted her directions to the nearest sporting goods store to pick one up.

Now you just need to watch two of the the director's other films.

There is "Samurai Rebellion" and then "The Human Condition".

 

The "Human Condition" is one of the best movies ever made. I can't imagine anyone would be the same after watching the whole movie.

After I saw it I couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks.

 

I also love the films of Kenji Mizoguchi like "Sansho the Bailiff".

 

If you liked "Kwaidan" I bet you'd love Onibaba.

I just watched "The Amazing Spider-Man". I was going to give it an 8/10, but Emma Stone trumps Kirsten Dunst in my eyes, so 9/10. An thoroughly enjoyable movie.

 

In all fairness, I haven't watched the first two Spidey movies in the previous series in quite a while, so one of these days I'll give them another go. Never saw the third one.....heard so many negative reviews that I stayed away.
