Review the last movie you viewed (NO LISTS) II

Rocky Balboa - 4/10

I've never seen the last 19 Rocky movies, but zzzzzzzzzzzzz

I was originally going to rate it a 2 but it gains 2 points for unintentionally hilarious scenes, stale acting that was so bad it's good, cheesy dialogue, and Milo Ventimiglia

Hot Fuzz 7.5/10

I laughed, A lot. , I guess if you liked Shaun Of The Dead, you'll like this one too.

The best part was the training montage.

The original Rocky is one of the greatest sports movies of all-time, a classic in every sense of the word.

Rocky II is overkill until the last 30 minutes, which are awesome.

Rocky III has Mr. T and the best manhug of all-time (Rocky and Apollo / Carl Weathers)

Rocky IV is 20x funnier than anything in Rock Balboa.

Rocky V is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, pure and simple.

Bee, you gotta see Rocky, III, and IV.

Reign Over Me

I'm usually a sap for these kind of movies, but I surprisingly didn't cry in this one. It was nonetheless very, very, very good.
I really recommend it to everyone. Sandler does a fantastic job in this, much better than anything else I've ever seen him in.

9/10

^ Everything Pla says

This is a movie with a lot of heart, and it's filled with little offbeat moments that are truly endearing...definitely 9/10. Pearl Jam's cover of "Love, Reign o'er Me" during the end credits is icing on the cake.

I now desperately want a motorized scooter

I saw "The Last King of Scotland". It was good, but not great. The first half wasn't as enjoyable as the last half.

7.5/10

The Hills Have Eyes II

1/10

Mmmm gore. Absolutely rubbish movie. I never saw the first one, so I wasn't prepared for how achingly dull and terrible it was going to be. My sister and spent the whole time laughing at how ridiculous it was. And cringing at the gore. I thought Saw III was bad. This has to be the goriest movie I have EVER seen. The only good thing about it (and the only reason why I didn't give it 0/10) was the humorous drill sergeant.

Edit: Oh, and for anyone else who had the misfortune to sit through this movie, what happened to the 'good' freak? Did he get blown up or what?

300

5/10.

I don't even have words. It was hilarious. It was the equivalent of a guy's chick flick. We had a great time watching it.

The Namesake

7/10? Maybe? I think I'll have to dwell on it a bit more before rating.

I loved the book and was excited to see the movie. It was good, some parts very good, but it seemed very long and slow. From what I remember, it was faithful to the book. I was really impressed with Kal Penn, and Tabu, the Indian actress who played Ashima.

I saw Namesake, also

I give it

7.5/10

I like films that give viewers an opportunity to experience something outside of the ususal story lines

there are no action sceens, big plot twist or typical things like that

It is a good story about family, cultures, and some great shots of India

Just saw 300 and well loved it, yeah us young guys will probably enjoy it most, it was pure eyecandy, a comic book come to life....If anyone goes to it planning on taking it seriously, I would worry about them, pure stylised fantastical fest of flesh and blood in all its glorious homoeroticism.

A pure adrenaline rush of a film....

9/10....mark off for script but the film really didn't need one....

Considering buffing up to be a Spartan for this Halloween

I watched This Film Is Not Yet Rated last night, which I highly recommend. I especially liked the tone of the movie and the way it highlighted the ridiculousness of the MPAA's secrecy about their ratings board. The movie made me crack up, but it's also kept me thinking all day. I also liked the way it sheds light on so many inconsistencies in the way films are rated.

I would've liked to have seen a few more filmmakers interviewed, especially a few more women, but as Kirby Dick alludes to in the interview (watch the bonus features, by the way; the delted scenes and interview are all interesting), many filmmakers wouldn't talk to him on camera for fear of a backlash when they submit their next movie to the MPAA.

I give it an 8.5/10

I'm going to see Zodiac later this week, and I'm hoping The Namesake actually comes out somewhere around here, though I'm a little skeptical.
