American History X - I give it 9/10 because it was shocking, thrilling, made you cringe at points, but still had a really important message at the end.

Avatar- Crap. Nearly 3 hours of smurf-like people in 3-D doing things that could have been done in just under 2 hours. Special effects were good, but the storyline was utter sh*t, after an hour I couldn't stop checking my watch to see if the mind-numbing torture was over.

Out of 10? 4.5
Don't wish things were easier...

... Wish you were better


Focus on the journey, and the result will take care of itself

The blind side. Very good movie. Even better that it's a true story. I was going to give it a 7.5 out of 10 but Sandra Bullock looked amazing in it so I'll give it a 8/10.

Inglourious Basterds- 9.5/10

Absolutely amazing cinematic peice. I really loved the movie and the acting by the man that played Hans Landa was second to none.

I'm going to another since I saw it like the day before.

There Will Be Blood- 9/10

Wow what an awesome peice. Daniel Day-Lewis showed his top class acting skills and his character was a masterpeice. The supporting characters were all awesome aswell.
On a different note everyone's pretty good with women when it comes to hookers... well except the sham-wow guy.

Scarface 9.8/10 (what?, It really is the last one I saw!!)
Man, I loved this movie, I love how Tony Montana is all about balls and never intimidates himself not even in front of the worlds biggest criminals.. I love his accent (even though it couldn't be more off).. I love "pass me the yayo" I love the quotes he says...
"Mein you worry to much, your gonna get a heart attack"
"You want me to walk in again so we can start over"
"You have this look in your eyes that nobody has fu**ed you in a year"
"Say hello to my little friend"
"and don't be calling me no facking dishwasher or I'll kick your monkey ass all over the floor"
"you should have kept your mouth shut, they would have thought you where a horse and let you go"

Love the plot, love the subject, love that it has some historical events attached to it, love that its in Miami, love his attitude, love how He went from working in a restaurant, to owning the cartel, love his ambitions.
etc. etc...

I didn't give him a 10, because of the false latino image he trays to portray..
He is cuban right, when talking to other Cubans, why does he speak English?
When talking to a Colombian, why does he speak English?
His accent couldnt be more off..

But im being very picky, and for you Anglosaxons you can't see this so.. :roll:

Al pacino = perfection in this play..
but it would have been much more realistic if they chose an actor who spoke Spanish don't you think?

Guess you can't have it all..

Dude you're my hero, I fu**ing love Scarface. I watched that last week too but I've seen it so many times and it never gets old.

He's all about bolss, not balls panchester, "bolss". :P

Everything about the movie IMO was perfect (except the latino stuff you mentioned). Pacino did a great job portraying Montana.

The only thing I hated was that the terminator wannabe that worked for Sosa had to shoot Tony in the back...if Tony had just turned around and fired a burst into the faggot I would have been so happy, even if he died after that...

But the ending music showing Tony dead in the water with the "World is Yours" statue glowing was a powerful scene.

Truely, I dont know why the heck he had to die.. Maybe go to the Hospital after getting shot and then make a part 2....

Also, the end part frustrates me.. He did so well, getting up to where he was.. To fu** it all up with his temper, KILL his best friend just because he likes his sister? No man..

Yea but thats why it was so great. Because of those things.. killing his bestfriend, and dieing in the end, it produced stronger emotions in audience even if their negative.

I just saw Zombieland btw.

It was fun cause I saw it with my girl, and our group of friends, so the lame plot seemed quite enjoyable. I found it had a nice mix of quite entertaining gore, with my taste of comedy. And of course it had to have a stupid love drama, but even that had a comical twist to it, so it was alright.
Definitely isn't a "wow that was amazing" movie, but it was enjoyable. Something you should watch with friends, because missing sections of it won't loose you in the plot line, and watching it alone I think I would have missed some of the references.

IMO Tony's outlook on life is actually a somewhat good outlook on life. He was determined to get whatever the fu** he wanted at whatever the cost. He took his life into his own hands and made it to the top (for a brief period of time until he fu**ed with Sosa).

That type of determination is what makes a man successful.

I'm a huge fan of De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, and some other actors, and I've been watching a few of their films that I've not already seen lately.

We'll start off with GoodFellas:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099685/
9.7/10
Possibly the best crime/mafia movie I've ever seen in my life. The acting is great on all fronts, based on a true story etc. Pesci, De Niro, and Liotta all give brilliant performances, it is a captivating movie and I highly recommend it. It is a story of friendship, betrayal, and what getting into the drug business can do to you. How easy it is to get whacked by friends. It's a long movie so it's hard to write a summary without going into too much detail. I'll let you guys watch it for yourselves Wink.




Heat
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113277/
9.5/10
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Tom Sizemore, Val Kilmer, Ashley Judd (hottie in this), Wes Studi, Jon Voight
Yeah, to be honest I loved this movie. De Niro, Sizemore, Kilmer, etc. rob armored cars, banks, and the like. One of De Niro's crew is cut loose and goes on a path to get revenge on them. Meanwhile, Pacino is an officer determined to stop De Niro and his crew at all costs. The two are sort of rivals, neither is a better person than the other, but the causes they fight for are completely opposite. This movie has THE best ending I've ever seen. The music is very powerful and makes the ending epic.




Casino
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112641/
9.3/10
Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone star in this awesome movie. It is another movie based on a true story. De Niro plays a bookie, and he and his old friend (Pesci) turn a Casino in Las Vegas into an empire. De Niro runs the Casino, Pesci offers protection in the most violent of manners you would expect from an actor like Pesci. A fascinating movie I highly recommend if you like the previous two I mentioned.



Donnie Brasco
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119008/
9.0/10
This was a very good movie that I enjoyed watching. It stars Johnny Depp and Al Pacino. Depp is an undercover FBI agent who is thrown into the Mafia underworld in NYC. He works for Sonny Black, a mob boss, and Al Pacino is sort of a father figure who helps him up the ranks of the mafia. As the story goes on he feels loyal to Pacino, but knows his duty lies with the FBI.

haha someone should rate panchester and evan a 5, scarface is the sh*t i fu**in love that movie.

heres another 2 i've recently watched:

requiem for a dream: 9/10
this was about 4 people and their addictions, and how feeding those addictions lead to their downfall.
very powerful, emotional and sad. it was filmed in a very interesting, rebellious way i found. the message of the film was captured perfectly. i even had nightmares lol.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKJpWfSHEs4

pulp fiction: 9/10
i found samuel l jackson hilarious in this movie. i didnt have a clue what was going on for most of it but at the end it all comes together in a very clever way. theres a lot of subliminal messages in this movie so i might watch it again to look for them.

At this very moment, I'm watching Body of Lies which isn't bad at all. Its certainly keeping my attention but I don't think its in the class of Blazing Saddles which I would happily watch again and again.
