I love Tarantino, It wasn't as good as Fargo but still super enjoyable compared to 99% of the crap movies that are coming out today...

 

I'm a little late but on the subject of War movies Assembly is very good for being in all Chinese and it's based on a true story (like that means anything)

Whole thing is on youtube in 720p with sub titles too:

Wait; No Country for Old Men is a Coen brother's movie; was Tarantion in it at some point? I don't recall.

Land of Hope - 6.5/10

 

Wow. What a major disappointment.  This one is about people living in radioactive areas of Japan and having to permanently evacuate. One older couple has their adult son move out so that he can live with his wife in a safe area. The parents are very old so they decide to stay. Officials keep coming to visit to try to force him to slaughter all his cattle and move out. They basically are living in a ghost town. Of course the place they move to has some radiation and they don't realize it until the man's wife is pregnant. RIGHT.....

 

I can't imagine living in an area where you have to worry about radiation on your food and too much in the air. One women in the movie had Radiophobia. The other is so old that's she's senile and forgets nearly everything. Doesn't even realize she's living in a ghost town. Keeps saying she wants to go home or go to the village festival.

 

My problem with the movie is that it's way too heavy handed. Way too much overacting and the director tried to tackle way too much and tried pounding his message into my brain. About 25 minutes to the end I felt it was some sort of weird masterpiece. There was a ton of stuff buried in there to think about and it's not an easy viewing. Then it just self destructs. I've never seen a movie ruin itself in the last 20 or so minutes like this. More excessively melodramatic stuff that's not even remotely realistic. The director really took the easy way out. After the movie I was just angry at how it turned out.

You know what's funny? I've participated in several "movie" threads on a few other sites, but this one has become my favorite. It's always steady in terms of the activity, and I think the wide variety of films we discuss is very impressive. We're all bound by a love of headphones, but yet our taste in film is incredibly diverse and interesting. I feel like I'm a better fan of film through my interactions with you guys. So kudos!

Black Swan: 9/10 - Very thrilling, nothing prepares you for the final 30 minuets.

The Prestige: 9/10 - I really loved the storyline in this movie. On top a great story line, the actors did really well.

I think Tchaikovsky should get more credit for Black Swan's success. XD

Mitsuko Delivers - 9.5/10

 

Loved every single minute of this one. Possibly the most fun and entertaining movie I've seen all year. Didn't really want it to end. Got a little bit goofy at the end though.

If you're inside the UK you're really lucky to have the "Third Window Films" around. They've released a ton of good Japanese films on DVD.

 

They make the movie out to be a little more cartoony/goofy than it really is in the trailer. It only got a little weird towards the end. I would have given it a 10/10 if it wasn't for slightly weirding me out. It's definitely a slower character driven movie. I can't say the characters are 100% realistic, but believable somewhat. They did go out of their way to make things entertaining.

 

Mitsuko is probably going to end up being one of my favorite movie characters!

Kon-Tiki 4/10

 

Didn´t really enjoy this one. Feels like some Hollywoodized movie but Hollywood do that kind of thing so much better.

 

They actually made som cool stuff like finding a way to hunt sharks and suffocate them but here we have a guy going rambo and gutting it with his knife and some mel gibson gore on top of that wtf...

It´s just not a good movie I liked the old documentary a lot better.

 

There is also the RA expeditions where they think balsa wood is to robust and use papyrus instead ;)

I totally agree the documentary was significantly better than the movie.  The book is a fascinating read.

I think they should go for the more documentary feel for this. But of course that has already been done but oh well. But some things is entirely correct the whale shark incident.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

wonder what they where thinking when the harpoon hit the shark and the rope started running

 

I watched Iron Man 3 last. 7/10. It´s okay I don´t quite grasp why it would be better then the prequels but oh well. The bad guys was a bit on the booring side of things.

Thor (2011): 6/10

 

Figured I should try and get caught up on all the Avengers movies, since really the only ones I've seen all the way through are the Iron Mans. Starting with this one almost made me regret my decision, but in spite of the cheesy script, bad acting, and awful design, I actually wound up enjoying it for the most part. And I can't quite put my finger on why.

Enemy Mine - 8.5/10

 

First saw this back when I was 8 or so. We'd always rent VHS tapes at a grocery store called "Food City".

Amazing how somehow I can remember every good movie I rented there.

 

This one is about an alien and a human that crash land on a planet and are trying to survive.

 

BTW I miss video rental stores. They're all dead here. Is it the same in your city?
