Riddick 3/10

 

Couldn´t stand the bad CGI. That dog must be the most annoying sidekick since Jar Jar Binks.

I am sure it don´t help I watched it on my Sony W6 instead of my plasma though. LCD just tend to make plastic things even more plastic.

Little redeeming factors. It´s not like I expect shakespeare but there is just to much overacting all around including Vin Diesel this time and cornyness going on.

 

I wish they would have gone the horror route instead and made Pitch Black 2. Would limit the need of CGI crap and give more time for the characters. But need to have a script for that I suppose.

Getting caught up on some movie watching....

 

 

"All is Lost" - 9.0/10"

LOVED this movie...amazingly effective sound with the Audeze LCD-Xs on my head. 

 

 

 

 

"Mitt" - 8.2/10

 I'm not a fan of either party in this country, but I really enjoy getting to know the players involved (and their families)

 

 

 

 

 

"Stuck in Love" - 7.4/10

Really nice cast...becomes a bit disjointed and all over the map, but many of the loose ends are eventually tied up...held my interest for the most part, but nothing special.

"All Is Lost" [8.3/10]: I wasn't quite as enthusiastic about this film as the reviewer above, but it was a good film. I have always been fascinated by survival stories, particularly survival at sea stories. I just finished the book "Unbroken" recently, so I had quite a survival story fresh in my mind as I watched "All Is Lost." It was also nice to see Robert Redford, a master, at work. It was an interesting film and the surround sound quality was amazing, (since there was little dialogue it was easier to pay attention to storm sounds and boat creaking sounds etc....) but the story was a little "stark" and familiar for my personal taste. However, seeing Robert Redford carry a whole film is worth the price of admission...

Whoever the audio guy was on that film, he did a ridiculously good job. Sounds like we both would agree that this film MUST be watched with a proper audio rig, either speakers or headphones. There is detail upon detail, and when you can hear it all it takes the film to another level. 

 

Also agree about Robert Redford...one of my all time favorite actors.

Or you could watch it at the cinema!

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968): 9/10

 

What can I say that hasn't been said already?

Not every cinema has good sound.:wink:

 

Watched The Wolverine this morning....pleasantly surprised after the Origins debacle which preceded it. 7/10

ooh man I have to see it now

Remains of the Day - 8/10

 

Felt it was nearly perfect until the very end, which basically ruined it for me. I wanted it to have a typical Hollywood happy ending!

 

I really haven't seen many movies lately. I'm engrossed into a TV series called "Doc Martin".

It's the first series i've watched regularly since "Macgyver" back in the 90s! Most TV is garbage unless it's a documentary or something similar.

 

Oh I did finally get to see "Bridge on the River Kwai" on the big screen for the first time. I've seen it dozens of times on TV, but on the big screen it's a lot slower and not as entertaining. Wonder why?

If you have an "Alamo Drafthouse" theater in your city you're lucky. We just got one in Kalamazoo.

 

I like this idea of ordering food inside the actual theater room.

The box art was enough to sell the concept for me :)

Talk about an A-list cast portraying cringe inducing family dysfunction.
Certainly well represented here with strong dialogue in a class of its own.
Most provocative.


Agreed, got a chance to see it this weekend. Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts particularly stands out in this movie.

All is lost 6,5/10

 

Redford is not doing a particularly good job not all that impressed honestly. There is talk about range does he show more then one expression in the entire movie. Not even when he see the rescue is near he hardly manage to show any enthusiasm. Also his forward thinking is entirely non existant. But pneumonia make the brain work slower and a concussion on top of that so there is explanations I suppose and he does play safe well within his limits I suppose.

 

Not the best survival story I have seen but the sound etc is surely well made. Not much surround here since I listen to headphones though ;)

Nice, always good to read 'Agreed' from time to time, ha ha.
Even though it seems to be billed as a comedy, this film sends the needle way over in areas not involving laughs.
I suppose the far out situation as a whole is worth a chuckle.

I did get a chance to view Dallas Buyers Club (2013) 7.4/10
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

This viewer summed it up nicely:
"Ron Woodroof's story has a universal appeal in that it examines the way in which our greatest challenges call upon us to be more than we are, or ever imagined we could be."

Leto and McConaughey work well together, earning their pay for what must have been the most challenging physical transformations.

Oh please, I got awesome surround sound with my HE 400... one thing I miss about the HE 400

 

the DT 880 does sufficently well though with surround, but not as cool as the HE 400 was

I think if you found yourself in a state of severe dehydration, you wouldn't be showing much enthusiasm either ;)
