movies movies post #15

been doing a lot of watching lately... and too little posting... so here's the big bulk of the movies i've recently watched...

my sister's keeper - 3/5
synopsis: a family deals with a cancer stricken daughter...
- if i were dying, it'd be so cool to meet a good guy...
- if my body parts were being harvested for a sake of a dying sibling, i'd be cool with it...
- nice twist at the ending...
- quite the tear-jerker, i must say...

the deer hunter - 4/5
synopsis: two men's simple lives change forever after being sent off to war...
- robert de niro quite the charmer here...
- the first russian roulette scene was one of the most absorbing scenes i've ever watched...
- one of those slow starting films... and then it just leaves you shaken by the end of it...

wall street - 1/5
synopsis: a lowly stock dude works for the big guy and suddenly gets more than he bargained for...
- i would've rated this film better if i just understood it...
- michael douglas' performance was pretty good, though...

the maid - 2/5
synopsis: a filipina maid hired by a couple with very freaky secrets gets spooked in singapore...
- this got a higher rating than wall street just because alessandra de rossi's in it... ohoho...
- but to be honest, the story's pretty bleh...

12 angry men - 5/5
synopsis: a boy's fate is changed that started from one vote of "not guilty"...
- one of the most absorbing movies i've ever seen...
- simple set, simple scenes, great acting, great story, great screenplay, great movie...

2001 a space odyssey - 2/5
synopsis: human that now live in space discover some kind of rectangular thing... and then a computer thingy goes berserk...
- another stanley kubrick movie that made me go "WTF?!"...
- i've never been so scared of a robot voice before...

requiem for a dream - 5/5
synopsis: 4 people experience the ultimate high and the ultimate low with drug use...
- not all movies get a happy ending... this is one of those movies... oops spoiler...
- jared leto so young...
- great great performance by Ellen Burstyn...

the big lebowski - 3/5
synopsis: a case of mistaken identity turns into one heck of a shitfest...
- the main dude drank so much white russian in the movie, it makes me wonder what it tastes like...
- the nude scene of cate blanchett was... was... erm...

alien - 3/5
synopsis: an alien specie hops aboard and goes on a killing spree
- ripley is one bad ass mutha!
- i envy the cat... he got it easy...

aliens - 3/5
synopsis: as the title suggest, it's not one, not two but a whole lot more salivating creatures!
- it's like starship troopers but less poppy and more darky...
- as expected, ripley kicks ass and saves the day!

banlieue 13 - 5/5
synopsis: the government wants to blow up the district run by society's cast-offs... a couple of guys has other plans...
- parkour in a movie! coooooool...
- David Belle's hot...
- Cyrille Raffaeli's just so-so...

twilight: new moon - 2/5
synopsis: the sequel of twilight... a breakup... a new "friend"... werewolves and more vamps...
- one of the most awkwardly acted movie's i've seen... kinda disappointing really since i'm really a fan of the books...
- twilight was way better...
- great soundtrack, though...

banlieue 13 ultimatum - 2/5
synopsis: the parkour boys are back because the government still wants to blow up the district...
- David Belle's not so hot no more...
- another case of the first-movie-was-better-by-a-mile...

basic instinct - 4/5
synopsis: a man gets stabbed to death and who do they blame? the hot chick... they blame her but still fuck her anyway...
- now i know why the legs scene was "legendary"...
- another michael douglas movie...
- at the end of the movie, i still didn't know who the killer was... ^^

confessions of a shopaholic - 2/5
synopsis: a shopaholic gets a column about how to save money while being in huge debt herself... no matter, she gets the hot guy in the end...
- Isla Fisher is cute no matter what...
- the story, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired...

dance of the dead - 2/5
synopsis: zombies find the local school mouth-watering and crash in the on prom night...
- not another zombie movie!
- it was kinda weird how the characters were acting like it's not big deal that people around them were dying... then again, it's just a movie...
- rock and roll makes the freakin zombies subdued! what an idea!

driving lessons - 4/5
synopsis: a young boy finally learns how it is to live when he began working for a washed up actress...
- for some reason, Rupert Grint looks like Bi Rain...
- Julie Walter's delivery of Evie is so so nice...

- Gerard Butler sure like to show off his ASSets... ^^

(500) days of summer - 5/5
synopsis: boy meets girl... boy in love but the girl is kinda not into it...
- it definitely is not a love story... (spoiler alert - it would've been if they ended up together in the end...)
- the 2 main characters are soooo cute...
- great soundtrack too...
- the main dude is so pathetic, you'd want to come in the screen and give him a big hug...

fatal attraction - 4/5
synopsis: an affair turns into a nightmare...
- Glenn Close really kills the villain role, especially the pycho bitch one...
- another Michael Douglas film... (lucky guy... he gets all the hot girls...)
- if you don't want your dude to cheat on you, let him watch this...

Eight and a Half - 1/5
synopsis: a director looks back on his life in the making of his latest film...
- i'm surprised i was able to make a synopsis for this when most part of the movie made not much sense...
- i have a crush on the main dude's look, though... an aging man in brushed-up hair and coke-bottle glasses is one, hot man...

friday the 13th - 1/5
synopsis: jason's at it again and again and again...
- i hate slasher flicks... i effin hate it...
- i don't know why i ended up watching this movie...
- the only unpredictable thing about slasher films is the order of the killing... meh...

gabriel - 3/5
synopsis: an angel is sent to save the other fallen angels and bring light to the darkness and shit...
- i like the main dude's eyes and voice... he's hot...
- one of those action movies that use too much dialogue than action... meh...
- the ending leaves much to be desired...

he's just not that into you - 3/5
synopsis: a film about the adventures of people interconnected by the social tango that is love...
- there are surprisely quite a number of good dating pointers here...
- after watching zack and miri make a porno, i found it difficult watching Justin Long as a straight guy... he's way more effective as a gay guy...

how to be - 5/5
synopsis: a very depressed boy seeks the personal services of an author of a self-help book...
- Robert Pattinson as a pathetic guy is a breath of fresh air...
- he plays good too...
- i found it cute that some scenes that were supposed to be serious had this very comedic background music...

zombieland - 4/5
synopsis: a dude shares his pointers on how to survive zombieland... and gets some pointers as well on how to land a chick...
- i have to write down those pointers...
- the bill murray scene was the LOL!

i love you man - 3/5
synopsis: the groom-to-be has no friends... and so he must go on man-dates to find it best man...
- it's so funny how to bro-mance could be so gay on some scenes...

irreversible - 4/5
synopsis: a man seeks for revenge for the brutal rape of his lover...
- told in a Memento style manner...
- i would've given this a 5/5 if not for the swirling camera movement...
- Monica Belluci is hot hot hot... and then she gets raped real real real bad...
