Strange Wilderness - 2/10. I probably needed to be extremely high to enjoy that one.

It wouldn't receive a perfect rating from such a pre-eminent reviewer if it was full of poor scripting and character inconsistencies.

And what, I should take you more seriously? Give me a break.

She honestly has gotten more attractive with age, IMO.

 

Her character in Cabin in the Woods was great, too.

 

It was so bad Dermot Mulroney wouldn't even let them show his face in the movie... LOL

I'm just pointing out the fact that at least I'm aware that Anaconda, Star Wars Episode III, and 2012 are all terrible movies lol. :-P 

 

Also, Sigourney Weaver makes everything better--I'll see a movie 9 times out of 10 just because she's in it. Which means that I should probably check out both Abduction and Cabin in the Woods at some point...

Argo 7/10 I felt it was slow moving for the most part, character development really wasn't there there.

But the final 20 minutes or so were exciting. Not a bad watch.

Abduction probably isn't worth it but Cabin in the Woods is fantastic.

I typically avoid horror movies. What about this movie makes it so popular? It is not your typical Freddy or Jason type movie?

It's a really interesting satire spin on your 'Freddy' kind if horror movie. The second half just ramps up and gets ridiculous in an awesome way.

Last movie I watched was Memento. Any person that thinks they can crack any storyline or plot, watch this. You have to reorganize the scenes and organize the colored scenes as well as the black and white scenes. The storyline is backwards and is very hard to follow. The only answers for the movies are interpretations from people, so you never really get a true answer. Movie rating: 2/5.

I don't know about others, but the way they've portrayed the diplomats pissed me off a bit. There's a crisis going on, and these guys are sitting around, having dinners, wine, listening to music...what?

And I think I mentioned this before, but Ben Affleck's range of emotions is pretty narrow.

 

The suspense is driven mainly by the minor characters.

Well, that crisis put their lives at stake. I'm not sure how I'd react, but I'm not so sure it wouldn't be somewhat similar.

 

Ben didn't really factor any substance into the film. But the film as a whole didn't offer much at all. I still enjoyed it.

I'd give it 5/5 for precisely the same reason. You can't unravel the story in one sitting, and even then, it messes with your head. Thats what a good movie should do.

Ok I am extremely curious now. I'll watch it.
post #11624 of 15945

Agreed.

 

Love that movie.
