What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 604

Bizarre, dystopian choo choo ride with nice cast.
post #9047 of 9422
Just caught the following on my flight home from HK:

-Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit: A prequel to the later Jack Ryan flicks. Not as good as the later ones. I would give this 2 out of 5 stars.

-American Hustle: Ok..I know this flick received all of the accolades, etc. And while it was an interesting watch, I don't get all of the hullabaloo! First, it was LONG. I fell asleep twice before I restarted the movie and watched the entire thing. And while it was nice looking at AR and JL wearing low cut dresses, outside of C Bale and A Ryan, I didn't see any amazing performances. JL was so-so at BEST(and that is pushing it.) B Cooper was ok, but nothing amazing. J Renner was solid(also nothing amazing.)

The story was interesting but I didn't finish watching the movie saying to myself.."Self, that as a damm good movie." Honestly, I give this 2 1/2 stars.

-White House Down: Basically Die Hard in the White House. I would watch DH(as a matter of fact, I own the DVD) again. While this was somewhat entertaining, I probably have no need to re-watch.

Can't disagree with that summary Kaplan nod[1].gif

Perhaps the 5/10 is a bit high though...

I can, Aliens is 10/10 easily, close to 11

Well, I'm sure there are *some* that'll disagree, like the ones that put up the $130 million budget for the Robocop remake ;-)

I was expecting worse from the reviews, and while it wasn't great, the subject matter was compelling enough to hold my interest through the uneven bits.

I can stretch it to a 9/10, but there needs to be a gap up to the perfection of Alien.

I'd have them other way around Aliens slightly above Alien. I think in case of these 2 it comes
down to personal preference; which convention of alien you prefer; a thriller or an action movie.

Watched Once Upon a Time in the West; it was great. It was not The good the bad and the ugly,
but it had so many memorable moments it was fun to watch.

Well, all of my ratings are based on personal preference ;-)

As for Once Upon a Time in the West, I rate that a good deal higher than Good/Bad/Ugly. One of the films I can put on and just watch for the cinematic awesomeness of it.

Interesting that Leone - working with Bernardo Bertolucci and Dario Argento amongst others - with Once Upon a Time set out to make the definite western and (at least to me) pretty much succeeded icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm probably paraphrasing a dozen other reviews, but it attempts to be an ode to those that feel mistreated by the system.  It had some parts where I found myself empathizing with the characters, and does raise some good points about social issues.  Worth a watch.
