Just finished the Soviet war film from 1985 called 'Come and See'

Pretty heavy stuff, mud, death and more mud.

Well worth the two hours. Something beyond words.

9 out of 10

Blackboard Jungle

Was on TV the other night.

1955 new york. A new teacher begins at a school and gets to teach the trouble-makers. Classical 1950's movie and a "how can i reach these kids?" movie. Also it is the first movie ever where rock 'n' roll is played (though it was only "rock around the clock" playing twice, in the opening credits and in the final scene).

Good movie though, loved the feel of it. Some clich├ęs though, and quite bad that the teachers wife had a premature birth of their child SEVEN MONTHS EARLY and the child survived, a healthy boy.
I see were you are trying to reach: "how can a 17 year old kid have such a thinking like this? why doesnt he wants to be like normal teens who whana get rich? and his plan actually makes sense, but is too damn revolutionary and good at the same time than is still doubthfull if it works..." - Damaso

Horrible Bosses (2011)
7/10

I had absolutely no expectations, so I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. It has some pretty funny parts and a hot slut.

(No nudity)

True. How can one deny having a sexual relationship with Jennifer Aniston..

Oh, wow. I had completely forgotten about Transformers 3. Guess I'll have to check it out.

Review to follow...


/edit: So far, so good. Albeit, some of the characters are pretty ridiculous. Case in point - the Intelligence Director, or whatever her title was. Ugh. It's like a rebellious teenager's view on the government personified.

That hot blonde girl does raise the movie's score by at least 1 star, though.

/edit2: Done watching. It's a Michael Bay movie from start to finish, what more can I say? Pretty girls & explosions.


Transformers 3: Dark of the moon 6.5/10

Rise of the planet of the apes, or as I now call it

ROTPOTA!

9/10! soooooooooo awesome. Best film of 2011 IMO... I loved every second of it, and Caesar just pwns everything!

I really really hope this is a kind of "reboot" of the POTA franchise, and they make at least 2 more movies.. and by the way it ends, it def feels like they will.. but no info on IMDB yet  :-[

Real Steel (2011)
by Shawn Levy, produced by Steven Spielberg
starring Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, etc
I give it 7.5/10, especially for the entertainment value.

Artistically, this film has nothing special. It is like Transformers, laden with product placements, but still somewhat at appropriate level, you can see International Harvester, Hewlett-Packard, Virgin America, etc. The movie is set in not too distant future where robot do the fighting instead of human. The story is from the viewpoint of a loser trying to regain his composure. It is quite attention-grabbing, some of the scenes we remember from Rocky 4, and with some family-friendly story, but still not being too smartass or preachy.

The theme is pretty much game-like. You got several stages, arena, tournaments, fights, robots, basically a great story for video game tie-ins. The setting is what people usually call "Americana," or typical American backdrop, from rural rodeo country to city with blinding lights, and a long-long-long route 66-like route in between. A well deserved 8 for me, but not for critics.

This movie had my recommendation because:
Steven Spielberg= +1
success-proven plot development (classic thing, like Rocky)= +2
misplaced product placement= -0.5
cheesy villains= -1
believability of the story= +1

In Time (2011)
by Andrew Niccol
starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy
I give it 6/10

Do you like cult movies with dystopia themes? Do you remember Kurt Wimmer's Equlibrium (2002)? You like Citizen Kane (1941)? V for Vendetta (2005)? Well, they have some innuendos in it, but still the overall idea is about breaking the system right?

Not when it involves young guys, innuendos about 1960s American car, strip poker, and cheesy elites. The very basic idea of the movie is: replace money with time as the main commodity. The human now lives in time, you have body clock (not circadian rhythm), that will count your time until you die. Everyone is paid in time. TBH, the movie is pretty much engaging (if you don't care about why the hell is this and that), however, we would never expect some punching machine operator to be able to do some sort of punch to the fist and gunning down gangster business. Even Violet (Milla Jovovich) in Ultraviolet (2006) had her explanations about where the heck her badass-ness come from.

But this is populist movie: We don't care, but one of us common day loser can suddenly say fuck you to some of us and decided to screw the whole system. There are some elites that controls them all (we never know how and we don't care), instead of deciding who is eating shit, now they decide who lives longer, and who lives forever. So they keep increasing price (the time cost, thus shortening your life, again we don't care about how the hell). Justin Timberlake is your Hugo Weaving-badass guy and he is there to dubiously save the day. The plot begins when the matter goes personal.

A touch of cult movie-like= +1
Hot scenes with Amanda Seyfried= +2
Incoherent plot= -1
Sensibility= -1
