This is exactly what you think it is and exactly what the title sais it is: A thread where you tell us, which movie you've seen lately and if you liked it and how much you liked it. You're also very welcome to write a review. I'd like to read some of yours.

As I already mentioned in a different thread, I've seen Deadpool and it was freaking awesome.
That movie nailed it!

Deadpool - 9/10

Recently watched: Brave. Liked it, very funny. Sweet in the way I like sweet, which is: not too.

Wolf of Wall Street.
It's crazy but good crazy. I think it holds record for number of F-word said in movie.
it's very long, I think three hourish, and based on true person and story. It's entertaining and again, crazy.

Watched 12 years of slave, also based on true story. It's sad and horrible, but if you think about it, this is probably just a sample of slavery story that is 'not so bad', and that is f-up.

I'd like to write more, but I don't know what I am doing here, it's very odd hour. My flight was delayed for six hours. Six hours!
But the street is nice and peaceful because no one is around. Need to get up in two, will either look like zombie or panda. Laterz.
I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I am one of them.

Wolf of Wallstreet is a great movie. It's really crazy but I think Leo's performance is outstanding! He is doing an incredible job there (as usual) and really should have won that damn oscar for that role.

One more thing guys, would be really cool if you would give the movie you've watched a rating.
iMDB like ;)
It's just interesting to see how you rate a movie.

(For example:
Deadpool - 9/10
Inception - 10/10
Whatevermovieuwant 6.5/10)

Thanks.

Ooooh, I think I am going to like this thread!

 

I've seen a lot of Marvel superhero movies lately because people I like are into them and I find them very relaxing. A bit too relaxing, I am afraid - I couldn't for the life of me tell you what exactly happens in Thor / Iron Man / Avengers / you name it, so I don't think I can give a fair opinion on any of them. I think I liked Antman the best so far. Deadpool was fun - but only as long as he was Deadpool, I didn't really care that much about Wade.

 

The last film I saw at the cinema was Zootopia. And I enjoyed it a lot more than I had expected I would. Yeah, it was preachy, but it preached a message I liked and it was a bit different from older Disney / Pixar movies I remember. 7/10, I'd say. Maybe even 8/10, I'll have to wait until I can watch it a second time to decide. I really liked Judy and the fox and how their relationship developed (only I wish they had left romance out entirely there, I think they worked better as platonic friends).

I hope so. ;)

I really liked Ant Man too. It had a great sense of humor.
And apropos Marvel, I think I'll really like Captain America 3. Captain America 2 was great and the new one received great critics and viewer rating (at least on iMDB). Some even call it the best Marvel movie to yet.

Same here, I liked Zootopia far more than I thought I would. For some reason the preaching doesn't bother me when delivered by cute animals. :smile:

I'll give it a 9/10 ... only because I still like traditional animation better than computer generated.

 

On the other hand, I was very disappointed in the second Avengers movie, but I've only seen it once so I hesitate to rate it -- perhaps my expectations were too high, or I was in a bad mood, or something. But the first one -- heck, I'll give it a 10/10, because Josh Whedon is God. :P

I only saw Zootopia movie poster, it looks like computer generated? I mean it's 3d animation rite, not simpson kind (2d).

Wolf of Wall Street, I give it 8/10. I like that the story is told from character's point of view and how he sees himself, it's also explained now and then that his POV is not always accurate, especially when he is high. It helps to excuse the sometimes zaggy plotline and give audience room for own interpretation which is good. Everyone is hero in their own story, that is why pointing out his own inaccuracy makes it more believable to me.

12 years of slave. I don't know, I think I should like it more but I don't. Maybe I multi-tasked while I watched it, but normally, if it's captivating enough, I would prioritize and pay more attention, but no. Maybe the plot is jumpy, it would flow better with narration. It's 6.5/10 for me.

Dressmaker, it's colorful drama that looks like lighthearted movie but not really. I like that it's quite unusual and maybe it helps that I enjoy Kate Winslet's performance. 7.2/10.

Yes, computer generated. The voice acting was superlative.

Wait, isn't Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel too? Okay, I take that back. I like Guardians the best. I recently saw that one for the second time and it engaged me much more than the others. 7/10 - but only because I am not likely to give a higher rating to a run of the mill superhero film. (I find this rating game difficult. What does 10 mean? Are we supposed to try and be objective? Because I know plenty of movies that I I consider very high quality but still don't enjoy much. Right now I am using 10 as "film I personally liked the very best of all films I have ever seen", i.e. I am going by my very personal opinion only).

Yes, Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel too. And yes it's awesome.


It's your decision which movies you give a 10/10.
10 can mean 'this movie made everything right, it was what it wanted to be and was really really good in it', or it can mean 'this movie is simply one of the best movies' or whatever 10 means for you.

For example on iMDB, I gave movies like "Inception" "The dark Knight" "Pulp Fiction" etc. an 10/10 because they were just incredible good. They are one of the best movies, in my opinion. (even though I have to admit that I only watched Pulp Fiction once.)
(and damn how many times have I already mentioned iMDB ) :D

So, if I compare Guardians to what I would consider the "perfect" superhero film, I rate it higher - 9, I would say. It just compares unfavorably to other movies in my eyes because of the limitations of this particular genre.

Just in case anyone was wondering what a 10/10 film would be for me: Several Sherlock episodes, for example, like A Study in Pink and The Great Game. Also the movies "Pride" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". If we're talking fantasy, I would say "Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring". For Anime (yes, I have watched some Anime) it would be "Princess Mononoke" and if we're talking comedy, I choose the original British "The Office".

A 10 for me would be something like The Shawshank Redemption. But I also love something like Star Trek into Darkness, which I thought was brilliantly well done ... for escapism. But being escapism, does that actually make it a less good film? I don't know, it's hard to compare sometimes. But I guess I do rate "message" movies higher, all else being equal. (And when is all else ever equal! :D )

 

I would also rate, say, Schindler's List a 10, but I can't actually say I "liked" it ... more like, I survived it, I respect it, I'm humbled by it, and I will never watch it again because it's just too much to deliberately subject myself to more than once.

 

So, yeah, my ratings aren't very consistent. :D

Insomnia - 7/10

A not so famous and not so typicall Christopher Nolan movie (no mindf*ck).

Still a great thriller. Al Pacino, of course , does a great job, just like all other cast members.

From Nolan I still want to see more Mindbending movies.

Capitan America: Civil War 8/10 it was so funny, really, worth watching! (John is here :P and he is such a… self-confident jackass)

The Night Manager -  it’s a mini-series, but very interesting! Also Hugh Laurie is magnificent as a villain.

Big hero 6 – it was very touching movie, I hope there will be sequel of it.

I tried watching the Night Manager but I just couldn't get into it and only survived two episodes. But I never have been much of a fan of Le Carre's work, I'm afraid. I don't know why ... even Tinker Tailor was only interesting to me because of the cast. There's something rather dry and cynical about Le Carre's stories that doesn't reach me, I guess.
