  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ½ Added

    A total mess of film full of lazy writing and convient breaks for everyone.
    I mean how many times can Nolan jump the gun before it's not okay anymore.

    This movie was a disgusting insult to anyone watching it, to the actors' abilities and to Nolan's own name. Yes, I mad.

    Ahhnold was the best thing about this movie. All his cheesy-half-mocking one-liners made me giddy.

    All in all, Expendables 2 was pretty entertaining. This time around it was actually constructed around call-backs and cameos like it should've been, instead of that pseudo 80's action flick like the first Expendables.

    I'm not saying there is any real reason why this movie should exist, but it was pretty damn entertaining for what it is.

  • ParaNorman 2012

    ★★★ Watched 19 Aug, 2012

    don't bully kids or else they'll haunt after you (possibly to death)

    an actually great spin on a typical "we're-just-going-to-make-fun-of-classic-monster-flicks" genre. The story (though aimed at children) was surprisingly fresh and smart.

    The visuals were fucking sweet too - each model was extremely distinct and characterized, and all the sets were beautiful. According to a co-worker there were no straight lines in the film. I particularly admired the design for the family car.

    of course it's important to tell you that stop motion gives me a fully-animated boner
