Rate The Last Movie You Watched - Page 836

post #12526 of 16284

 

8.7/10

Really surprised me how much I enjoyed this one. Ben Affleck is always hit-or-miss for me, but he knocked it out of the park with Argo. It lives up to the hype. Good story, great acting all around. Affleck does a great job of building up the tension in each scene and keeps the tension building all the way up to the final act. Nice use of actual news footage from the Iranian hostage crisis in it as well.

Watched it.  Good, but no where close to showcasing his talent.  The movie got better when they started drinking.

Gangster Squad (2013) 6.9/10

Doesn't hold a candle to The Untouchables (1987)
Sean Penn was suited to portray another guy with "wee man" syndrome,small stature with big things to prove.
Josh Brolin was a thrashing machine in this film.
Ryan Gosling,just no.

The perks of being a wallflower 10/10

 

 

One of those rare movies that takes a sensitive look at the introverts out there, especially in the highly social high school context.

The acting is very good, especially from the young actors, the script deals with the external and internal demons we all face, in a very heartfelt manner.  Probably the most mature teen movie in years.

 

Highly recommended, especially if you're an introvert!

Today...after watching and enjoying Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol a week or so ago, I perused Netflix today and found the first and third installments....all three were pretty well done, I thought.

Parker (2013) 6.0/10

Double shot of old Nick Nolte after watching Gangster Squad.
He now looks like a statue on Easter Island,what's up with the huge Herman Munster head?
Jason Statham usually delivers more action.
The movie loped along,with 43 year old mommy Jennifer Lopez as his side interest.
Better off in the hair ads for L'Oreal,really.

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (2010): 8/10

 

I'm a casual anime fan at best, but over the last couple of weeks I've immersed myself in various series and movies, and have made a lot of really great 'discoveries' for myself. This one in particular would be a legitimately great time-travel flick if it were at all capable of standing alone--however, there's no way that I'd recommend that you watch this without first seeing the 28 episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya that precede it.

Have you Ever seen 'Grave of the fireflies'? Great anime movie 10/10 in my book; I think this movie needed to be done in anime. A real life adaptation would just be too much I think.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is probably my favorite 'anime' film out there. It's just a beautiful movie all the way around.

Zero dark Thirty 7/10
 
Entire movie was spoiled from the beginning which eliminated most of the tension.
I enjoyed Hurt Locker a lot more as it had some interesting characters and more tension :)

I agree, the drinking was the best part.

Thanks for the recommendation, a friend recommended the book but since the movie is also written and directed by the writer I figured it's just as worth it.

 

just started watching and so far so good, I was in the same school for 10 years, and now moved to another country and I'm starting at a new school (10th grade) in 2 weeks, I do have my good amount of friends but I've always been kind of an introvert, don't really know what to expect from the new school or how easy it's going to be for me to make friends, but in one way or another I can relate to this movie

 

just finished watching it, for maybe the first 30 minutes it was an 8 or a 9, but then things just kind of starting getting to me and it's a solid 10.Of course, like most teenagers, I guess, I could really relate to a thing or two in the movie, and as an overall movie I think it was excellent, gets me wondering about the book

8/10 Visually impressive !!

I saw this one shortly after it was released on DVD--I remember liking it, but not being wild about it. I should give it a rewatch.

Yes--this film has haunted me for as long as I can remember. I've given several copies of it to people over the years (always my copies), so I am constantly re-purchasing it. Truly a lovely film.

In case you guys are interested, some of the series I've watched in the last two or three weeks that have really floored me are:

 

Haibane Renmei

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Baccano!

Kemonozume

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Eden of the East

Revolutionary Girl Utena

 

Surprisingly, considering all the high praise they get, I really did not like Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex or Elfen Lied. I stopped both after about five episodes.

 

Anyways, here's another review!

 

Eden of the East: The King of Eden (2009)

7/10

 

A bit of a let-down after the series--pretty much accomplishes a whole lot of nothing in its 1.5 hour run-time. Sure, the characters are likable (the two primary protagonists in particular are probably just about the cutest anime couple of all time, ever), and the scenery porn is delicious, but otherwise, I found it to be a bit dull. There's one more movie after this one that concludes the Eden of the East story. If that one's a let-down as well then I'll honestly probably stick this movie at a 5 or a 6 instead--I'm hoping this one's problem is that it's just the middle chapter; middle chapters always tend to suffer. By the way, if you're not familiar with the series, I liked it quite a bit. It's like The Bourne Identity plus some meet-cute rom-com. Less action then Bourne, but way more over the top, and funny, too. 

post #12540 of 16284

Thanks, Metalsonata I'll have to look into some of these movies/series. I've been out of the anime loop for several years now...just lost interest in it once I hit my mid-twenties. But I'm willing to dip my toes in some good anime again.

 

Since we're on the topic of anime, can anyone suggest a really good recent sci-fi and/or space travel anime? Something in the vein of Cowboy Beebop or Outlaw Star?
