I think for sure if I see a huge maersk freight ship after being alone for 7 days. Thing is he doesn't show any real desperation either.

Doesn't show any desperation? Are you sure we're talking about the same movie? lol

He lit his entire raft on fire to get the attention of the last boat! I don't know how much more desperate you can get lol

7/10

 

Was pretty good, had some throw away peices here and there but the characters were all interesting and the whole "look at the humanity!!" concept was decently done.

I became interested in this one when I heard that Keanu Reeves directed it. It was visually interesting and I do enjoy this genre quite a bit, but I didn't come away thinking it was anything remarkable. I was entertained for the most part, just not jumping out of my seat. I also felt it was too straight forward and a bit predictable. 

 
 
"Man of Tai Chi" - 7.0/10

I can live with crappy story an prediactable fights... but the one thing I HATE is those magical Flying Fight scenes... I can accept 2 AT MOST, but less if more imo 

 

so if it has more than 2 FLYING DRAGON KICKS... them I'm not even going to finish it [the Ip Man movies did a nice job at using VERY little of what I consider to be that Flying Crap, as did Jet Lee's Fearless

I think I saw this 

 

Oh crap there is another one that was really good, ok nope there goes the flying thanks but no thanks 

 

there was another movie... about a Swordsman... it was really awesome... like a historical Samurai movie but very new and it... DARN I'm mad it's a popular title... and its imo super epic

Hero perhaps?

The Counsellor (2013) 6.4/10

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

This one almost slipped by, haven't heard much good press for this film.
An examination in the perils of trying to sustain a high dollar lifestyle through dubious means.
If mostly just to watch the known actors play their parts along the obscure plot points, it could understandably be a film to loathe but I liked it.

Psycho (1960) - 8.5
Rear Window (1954) - 8 (revaluation)
Vertigo (1958) - 9

 

North by Northwest (1959) - 8

 

A thriller revolving around a slightly eccentric and innocent advertising executive who is wrongly identified as a government secret agent (among other things throughout the movie) and eventually finds himself in epic imbroglio.

A silly movie, intentionally silly, very well done with a spice of lighthearted comedy with it's proper dose of intelligence.

I like this movie more than I would presume in light of it's apparently lighthearted premisse, mostly due to it's wonderfull cinematography (OH WHY?!! Why didn't Hitchcock shoot Vertigo like this? ARGGHHH!!!) and of course Hitchcock masterfull cinematic skills. At numerous moments of the film, Hitchcock really shows he knows how to move and place the camera like few others, like a genius. The famous cereal crop scene deserves all it's notoriety, I'll never forget it, I can only imagine how off guard people were caught by it when the film was release, fantastically accomplished.

Several others scenes got hardprinted in my memory just as well as Eva Marie Saint soothing eye magnet beauty!

Oh, how I would love to be the reckless Roger Thornhill myself!
