Even Red 2?! I immensely enjoyed the first one, and I was looking forward to the sequel.

 

I think it's meant to be a grand old time, instead of a more serious movie. I'll still go see it anyway.

The Burbs .....  an odd favorite of mine.  3 1/2 stars

 

Evil Dead (remake) ....  the pace of this film is relentless, which imo is to its benefit, no dark humor to be had here as this one is just horror. 3 1/2 stars

Hold on thar Tiger, don't keep those cat ears pinned back for too long.

I'll qualify that post with the addition that Red 2 is the best of the bunch.
Viewer fatigue has set in, especially after a session with Grown Ups 2, complete trash from Adam Sandler.

R etired
E extremely
D angerous

No. 2 still has the same set up.
Older, well paid actors with weapons, usually the province of younger stars.
Tough to build a sequel around this.
A collection of action/comedy beats in exotic locales, all strung together by double crosses and plot contrivances.
Average, inoffensively funny summer films are hard to describe as good.

Iron Man 3 or a Pacific Rim standout it is not.
Do attend and enjoy the popcorn and movie, probably the best we're going to get before the end of summer...

The Raid: Redemption 9/10

Such a boss level action movie that flew under my radar until a friend had me watch it with em today. The choreography was on point, the fight scenes were intense and i was in my chair doing random air punches for pretty much the whole movie. Would get a perfect 10 if not for the ending

The Wolverine (2013): 6/10

 

Honestly--a lot better than I was expecting. It does go drastically astray in the final act, and neither the plot nor any of the secondary characters make much of an impression, but Hugh Jackman is in fine form, and the director and screenwriters really do their best to get to the bottom of what makes Logan tick. It's a solid crowd-pleasing movie--I don't think I'll ever need to sit through it again, and the more I think about it after the fact, the more it falls apart. But if you've been yearning for a decent X-Men movie recently, this ought to scratch your itch. Oh yeah, and don't leave as soon as the credits start rolling. There's a bit of a surprise partway through.

I really enjoyed that one, too.

The place beyond the pines 9/10

 

 

Ryan Gosling seems to be perfecting a different style of acting. You wouldn't call him emotionless, rather, subtle and realistic, like a storm of emotional undercurrent beneath that calm face.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The most amazing scene I've seen in a movie...where he carries the crying baby out of the room, leaving behind the ruckus.
Maybe it was coincidence, but the way the baby calmed down as he went downstairs was immensely powerful. He goes out of the house, and sits down on the porch, still holding the baby in his arms, just like he'd always wished, thinking that he'll probably never have a 'normal' life that he'd dreamed about, not after what he'd done.
 

 

Eve Mendes is pretty good in her role. Bradley Cooper is also cementing his position as a serious actor.

 

The first half of the story is rather intense and dramatic, the second half has more of an implied sense of emotion. Overall a pretty satisfying movie.

Letters from Iwo Jima - 10/10

 

About time someone from Hollywood portrayed the Japanese as having a brain and not every single soldier as wanting to die a senseless death for the Emperor.

I've been reading up on some history and a lot of the Japanese I think many didn't want to surrender because they were told that they would be tortured or killed. Sadly only about 216 or so Japanese were taken as POWs on Iwo Jima while nearly 21,000+ died.

I'm tired of Hollywood portraying every Japanese soldier as complete savages. Sure many of them were, same as some American soldiers unfortunately. I really don't want to go there...yes I know about the Nanjing Massacre.

 

Anyway, this one I've seen for the 4th or 5th time. This time around it was very sad and sort of depressing. It really made me feel what it would be like in a situation where there was no chance of winning on Iwo Jima and having to commit suicide. That scene is so painful to watch. The group of soldiers were told to retreat north but instead blew themselves up with grenades.

Have you seen Only God Forgives (2013) ?


You could say 'Spectacular!' if you are a Ryan G. fan or find the whole endeavor to be a slow motion Oedipus Complex.
Almost flat lining, if not for the hot Mom, played by Kristin Scott Thomas- I only thought it was average 6.3/10

I wanted to watch this movie, but the reviews weren't very encouraging.

Red 2 - 7/10

 

I watched the first one and enjoyed it, Red 2 follows much in the same way. John Malkovich is hilarious as usual in Red 2 and makes the movie worthwhile.

Pacific Rim

Critically 7.5/10
Enjoyability: 9/10
