"Dude, you just broke my box."
"Yeah, your mom told me that last night."

This was a pretty interesting movie. It pulled off the Pulp Fiction style of storytelling very well and it also had some very funny dialogue. If you like movies like with a nonlinear narrative, then give this one a chance.

Lone Survivor (2014)
February 1



"Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards."

This is the first movie I saw in theatres this year and it looks like 2014 might be a better year for movies than last year. This movie is the best war movie that's based on a more recent war. It was gripping, disturbing and very realistic. Mark Wahlberg also delivers his best performance since Boogie Nights. While I was disappointed with some of the movies 2013 had to offer, this movie gives me hope that 2014 will be an awesome year for movies.

Rounders (1998)
February 1



"It hurts doesn't it? Your hopes dashed, your dreams down the toilet. And your fate is sitting right besides you."

This movie wasn't too impressive. While Edward Norton was awesome in this movie, the dialogue was OK and I didn't find this movie too interesting. I guess it's because I find poker very boring. If you're interested in poker, then you might like this movie. Otherwise it's probably not worth your time.

"I've always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a human being to really see a human being."

This was a very good movie. It was well-written, it tackled difficult subjects and for once Halle Berry delivers a good performance. It's not a masterpiece, but it's somewhat underrated considering that I rarely hear about this movie despite the fact that it won an Oscar. I do keep hearing about Halle Berry winning the Oscar, but not the movie itself.

Red Dawn (1984)
February 2



"How did you get shot down, Colonel?"
"It was five to one. I got four."

I thought this movie was entertaining. While some people consider it cheesy, I think it's far from that. I think this movie can be genuinely touching at times and it broke ground at the time this was made. Today it's dated, but I still think it was a good movie.

While I don't support the use of marijuana, I do understand why people want to get it legalized. This documentary was very interesting, informative and it was funny at times. I think it's worth watching.

Havoc (2005)
February 4



"I know everything about you. Yeah, I can see right through you. Everything to you is a fucking game. You ain't real. There's nothing real about you. Your talk ain't real, Your walk ain't real, the way you dress ain't real. You don't even copy it from the real thing, you fucking get it from the TV."

While I liked this movie, I think it could've been developed. While Anne Hathaway's character was good, the rest of the characters were OK and if this film was longer, the character development might've been better. It was good for what it is, but it was too short and I rarely say that about a movie.

Kids (1995)
February 5



"When you're young, not much matters. When you find something that you care about, then that's all you got. When you go to sleep at night you dream of pussy. When you wake up it's the same thing. It's there in your face. You can't escape it. Sometimes when you're young the only place to go is inside. That's just it - fucking is what I love. Take that away from me and I really got nothing."

This was a hell of a movie. The dialogue had a lot of thought put into and it had some very great acting considering that most of the cast didn't have much experience in acting. The whole thing was so realistic that it didn't really feel like a movie at all. Much better than that piece of crap movie SubUrbia which wishes it could exactly be like this movie.

"I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing."

Stupid, lame, uninspired, cliched, unfunny, boring as fuck, unoriginal, uninspired, god-awful, horrendous, abysmal, nothing good about it whatsoever, inane typical Hollywood bullshit. Seriously! Shallow Hal did a better job with the whole inner beauty message better and I didn't even like that movie. How this movie even got approved by Hollywood is beyond me.

"What the fuck does WTF mean?"

This movie wasn't as funny as it should've been. While it did have its funny moments, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright don't use the best of their humor in this movie and some jokes in this movie are funnier than others. I also thought the action in this movie was pretty repetitive. This is just another disappointing movie that 2013 had to offer.

"What happened to the cops?"
"Nothin. They were were right even though they were wrong. And I was wrong only *because* that I was right. Ya see? You get that now. You get that, right?"
"Righta and wronga."

I really dug this movie. It was gripping, had some very good characters and it had Antoine Fuqua's style of directing that I really admire. Out of all his movies, I would consider this one to be his best.

"Like sunlight, sunset, we appear, we disappear. We are so important to some, but we are just passing through."

I thought this was better than Before Sunset. While that movie was good, it didn't come close to being as good as Before Sunrise. While this one isn't as good as the latter movie, it's still an amazing movie. The movie is just dialogue, but it's very well-written and I liked seeing where the two main characters are now. I'm glad I finally saw it and now I've seen all of Richard Linklater's movies. I have to say that he's a very unique director and while he has made some great movies, he's also had a few misses.

"We are entering your mind."
"What?"
"I don't think he's ever had an original thought."
"That's not true. Introducing, the double decker couch so everyone could watch TV together and be buddies."
"That's literally the dumbest thing I ever heard."
"Let me handle this. That idea is just the worse."

I was originally going to see The Monument's Men, but since I've heard mixed things about it, I decided to see this instead. I'm glad I did because this is the best animated movie I've seen since Toy Story 3. It had lots of creative ideas, some really likable characters and most of all it was hilarious. I don't think I've laughed this much while watching an animated movie before. It also had some heartwarming scenes which added to how great this movie is. Whether you're a kid or an adult, this movie will have something for you to enjoy.

"If she were any quieter, she'd be dead!"

I couldn't stand this movie. I thought the acting was atrocious and the dialogue was really bad. It wasn't scary... it was just fucking disgusting!
Also the so-called great twist ending just seemed phoned in to make up for people that knew the killer was Angela!!!!!! Angela!!!!!! Pretty damn obvious! Very stupid movie with an overrated twist.

"My uncle used to say that we like people for their qualities but we love them for their defects."

This was a very cool movie. While I can't say I'm a fan of Ron Perlman, I thought he did an awesome job as Hellboy. It also had awesome visuals and it was very entertaining. Now I'm excited to see the sequel to this movie.

"I told the boy when you dream about bad things happening, it means you're still fighting and you're still alive. It's when you start to dream about good things that you should start to worry."

While I did like this movie, I don't think it was as good as the people on Listal say it is. It did have some very good acting and some very well-made scenes, I just couldn't get into the story.

"Doc, once you've been driven off a bridge at 80 miles an hour, somehow you don't invite happiness in without a full body search."

This was a very fascinating movie. While any movie with Tom Cruise trying something different gets my seal of approval, I also really liked the story and I just found this movie to be a remarkable experience. I will watch the original movie sometime, but I think this movie is much better than some people make it out to be.

"This is really happening..."
"It's gonna be all right, we're gonna be okay."
"You don't really believe that, do you?"

I don't have too much to say about this movie, but I can say that it succeeds as a horror movie. It's not the scariest movie ever, but it did make me jump quite a few times.

"You can't make things like that up, son. Killing people is wrong, destroying demons is good. Don't worry, God will send you your own list when you're older."

This wasn't a good movie at all. It was boring, had a lackluster premise and the dialogue was bland. The twist at the end was somewhat decent, but it's not surprising like the movie wants it to be. I also don't think Matthew McConaughey is good when he's doing serious roles.

Re-watch

-



"So why the long face, Horse? Banky on the rag?"
"I'm just, ahh, I'm just havin' a little girl trouble."
"Bitch pressin' charges? I get that a lot."

I liked this movie even more the second time around. It was really funny and the love story in this film is unique. I love how it ended differently instead of the same ending most romance movies have. The only problem I really have is Joey Lauren Adam's acting in one scene, but it is a well-done love story that I would gladly watch again.

"Hey, Max, maybe you should think about getting out of here."
"Listen. The only thing I ever missed in 23 years is maybe a hot bath. To tell the truth, I don't think that's worth walking out of here for."

I enjoyed this movie. It's nothing great, but it had a good plot and it had some humorous dialogue. This movie may not appeal to general movie-goers, but if you're a fan of anyone in the cast and interested in seeing it then it's worth a shot.

"Can I help you guys?"
"Yeah, tell Tony Eddie and the Cruisers are here."

While I really enjoyed the story of this movie the best part about it was the music in this movie. While it's not the best music-based movie, it is still a very good one and it's sadly forgotten.

"You need some time to grow up a little."
"I finished growing up, Léon. I just get older."
"For me it's the opposite. I'm old enough. I need time to grow up."

When the movie started I thought it was going to be overrated, but when Natalie Portman's character was introduced that was when the movie started to get great. This movie has amazing writing, acting and it has some very memorable scenes. I didn't give it a perfect score because of the slow start, but this is still a great movie and I'm glad I finally watched it.

"She was in Hong Kong! She's the killer!"
"She's my mother!"
"Couldn't she be both?"

I wasn't a fan of the first movie, so I didn't have high expectations for this movie, but now that I've seen this I think it's better and funnier than the original. I laughed quite a bit while watching this movie and it also had some entertaining action scenes. While the original was just a mildly funny movie, this one was very funny from start to finish.

"Try not to shoot yourselves. Don't shoot each other. But especially... don't shoot me."

As a person who loves gory movies, this one does not disappoint. All this movie is trying to do was entertain and it suceeds. It was a really fun movie and I was never bored while watching it.

"I'm gonna kill you. I am going to kill you. Not now. Not tonight. That would be too easy. Maybe next week. Next month. You'll never know. Think about it. One day, one night, I'll be there."

This was a very good movie. It's not as good as Mike Hodges' masterpiece which is Get Carter, but it's still a very well done revenge movie and it has an awesome performance from Clive Owen. If you're a fan of dark revenge movies then this is worth a look.

This was a very fascinating movie. The movie was very beautiful to look at and it had some great storytelling and characters. This is the most underrated movie that John Boorman directed.

"If she's into you, she's into some weird shit."
"Thank you, sir, I'll make a note of that."

I loved this movie a lot. A film based on Casualty Notification Officers is a great idea for a movie and it has Woody Harrelson's best performance in his career. The drama in this movie worked very well and wasn't overly sentimental like some dramas are.

"When I'm sober... When I'm healthy and well... I hurt people. I'm lethal. I drink to weaken the machine they made."

If you're looking for a typical Jason Statham action movie then this is not the best choice, but if you're looking for a different kind of movie with Jason Statham then check this movie out. This movie shows off his talent very well and I really liked this movie overall. It was refreshing to see a movie from last year that I was highly anticipating that wasn't disappointing. It's not a masterpiece, but it's a solid movie that is worth watching if you don't mind seeing something different from Jason Statham.

"Simon says lets get the hell out of here and let the cops ask questions later while we're kicking it back in Seattle selling our story to the Enquire."

Because the only Uwe Boll movie I've seen was Rampage which is his most praised film, I thought it was only fair to see one of his panned movies. Out of all the movies I've given one star, this one was the least painful to watch. I have to admit it was somewhat entertaining, but it's entertaining for the wrong reasons. The characters were horrendous, the dialogue was abysmal, the voice-over was pretentious, the nudity was there for no reason and this movie is about as scary as the Scary Movie franchise. The only good thing was the gore effects in the movie, but the movie ruins it with the video game footage from the game this movie is based off of. As a film-maker I have to watch some of Uwe Boll's other movies so I can learn more about how not to make a movie.

"What?"

"Oh, no. My mom must have put that on there."
"Oh. And you just got to it and thought "what the hell?" I'm going to sing the shit out of it anyway."

I knew this movie was going to be good, but I didn't know I was going to love it this much. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised because the style of this movie reminded me of Little Miss Sunshine which I loved. This movie was very charming, heartfelt and hilarious.

I don't get why some people didn't like this movie. Sure it's nothing original, but Woody Harrelson does a good job playing his character and the script for this movie is actually pretty good. I really liked this movie and I'm looking forward to seeing what Oren Moverman will be directing next.

I've been moving towards it my entire life. The minute I was born, every breath I've taken, every action has been leading me to this crack on the earth's surface."

While I can't deny that this is an amazing story, there were some things I didn't like about this movie. While this movie did have its great moments, there were some parts that could've been cut out of the movie. While James Franco is good in this movie, I can't say it's his best performance. It's a good movie, but somewhat overrated.

Two OK movies in a row. Sure it's better than watching two bad movies in a row, but I like watching good movies! While the acting was decent and it had an OK plot, the film tries to be disturbing and it barely works. I don't regret watching it, but I would never watch it again.

While this isn't a great movie, it is a really well-made thriller. It was suspenseful, it kept me interested and the whole movie felt like a modern Hitchcock thriller which is good. If you want a thriller that's suspenseful, but doesn't take itself too seriously then I would recommend this one.

What's that? Uwe Boll made an intentionally funny movie? That's... unusual. The most shocking thing about this movie is that it tries to be an offensive comedy... and it actually works.

I decided to watch this movie expecting a typical action movie and got more out of this movie than I thought I would. It had some strong performances, solid direction and dark storytelling. The last 20 minutes of this movie were very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat. Not Bruce Willis' best movie, but it is his most underrated.

"Satan is simply the warden of a very large prison. Quiet man actually, thoughtful and he's well read. And I happen to know the idea of sacrificing children in his honour annoys him greatly."

This movie was originally on my not interested list, but I made that list almost 3 years ago and my taste in movies has changed since then. This is by no means a great movie, but it's entertaining and while I can't say I was missing out on something, I still think this movie is worth watching at least once if your a fan of this genre.

"Why didn't you call the police?"
"Well you know, I prayed for them to come but nobody answered."

I watched the trailer for this movie days before I watched this and that trailer amazed me like no trailer ever has before and that's when I knew I had to watch this movie. While the movie started off a little slow, the movie started to pick up after the opening scene was done, so it's just a nitpick. The writing, the acting and the humor in this movie is all perfect. Clint Eastwood's performance was amazing and his gravelly voice gives his character more personality. So far this is my personal favorite Clint Eastwood movie.

"That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned."

While I don't watch westerns too often, I do enjoy a good western from time to time. Especially westerns involving Clint Eastwood too. While people consider The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly to be the best western, I personally think this is the best western. It had great characters, amazing storytelling and it has some of the most memorable lines in movie history. This western is a must see whether you're a fan of the genre or not.

"Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort."

I wasn't sure about this movie because I didn't like the idea of Clint Eastwood directing and starring in a romance movie, but I gave it a benefit of a doubt. I will say that it is impossible for Clint Eastwood to deliver a bad or average performance and while he was decent, I didn't find him believable as the type of character he was playing. The dialogue was OK, the story was nothing new and I think Meryl Streep is overrated in my opinion. The main weakness this movie has is that it's not romantic, and when a romance movie isn't romantic then that's when it fails. Despite the problems I had with this movie I still thought the way Clint Eastwood directed this movie was great and some of the shots in this movie was beautiful. Overrated movie and my least favorite Clint Eastwood film so far.

"Twenty-eight years ago I borrowed 40 dollars from my father, packed up an old, beat up suitcase, took a bus and came here. I was seventeen at the time. While I walked through the French Quarter, I looked out over the Mississippi and swore I'd never leave."
"Ever come close?"
"Only once. When I looked down and saw that the suitcase was missing."

This was a very underrated Clint Eastwood movie. It had some very good dialogue and I found this movie to be interesting. The best part of this movie is that chase scene at the end. Not Clint Eastwood's best movie, but it is his most underrated.

"Frank, The President sent his limo for you."
"Well, that's the least he could do."
"Good, I love public transportation."

While it's not Clint Eastwood's best movie, it is still a great movie and it had me on the edge of my seat at times. John Malkovich was great in this movie too.
