    Default Rate The Last Movie You Saw.

    Saw this thread on a different forum, thought it'd be an excellent addition to the Gem Theater. You rate a movie out of a 10 point scale system , decimals are fine (i.e 6.5/10 , 3.5/10 etc.). Explanations are encouraged but not required.


    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari - 8/10

    A prime example of expressionist film making at its finest. Surreal settings, captivating cinematography, and stark contrasts in color help elevate the feeling of macabre rampant throughout the film. A masterpiece of its genre.

    I'm so glad you embraced the film.

    And what did you think of the settings, weren't they wonderful?! I love german expressionism. I know it has an unrealistic quality to it, but I just adore the surreal and dreamlike settings. And especially the cinematography and their use of extreme lighting. You can definitely see the influence it has had on filmmaking as a whole, and in particular the horror and film noir genres. Not to mention the likes of certain directors.

    Great idea, Feev.

    Well, I just watched Donnie Brasco and I'd easily give it a 8.5/10.

    Though Al Pacino completely carries the movie, it's great to see him in a part where he's basically a character actor. The rest of the cast is great, too ( with the exception of Anne Heche who I thought was waaaaay over the top ) and includes Johnny Depp, Michael Madsen and Bruno Kirby. Great job all around for each of them.

    I should throw out a bit of a caveat here though - I'm quite a fan of the "mafia" genre in general ( Godfather, Goodfellas, etc ).

    Great idea Feev!!!

    just watched the new Alice in Wonderland last night, really enjoyed it. Did not know it was a "sequel" going in and thought it was just another re-make so I was excited about that. As usual Depp was well.....he was Depp. Just what you would expect from him nowadays.

    Overall I would give it a 8/10

    Its your fate,but its not your fault

    Clash of the Titans - 3/10

    Let me preface this by saying that although I am a huge fan of the original , I was not going into this movie under the assumption that it would be a faithful adaptation and knew that certain liberties would be taken with the story for a broader appeal. I set my expectations low , knowing (thinking) that it would be nothing more than a loud, action-fueled movie with melodrama sprinkled throughout.

    Apparently I didn't lower my expectations enough. The film is a boring , loud mess - devoid of soul , with a bare bones narrative that serves as nothing more than to get the protagonists from one action set piece to another. The now typecast Sam Worthington delivers his lines in a wooden manner, his tragically underwritten version of Perseus requiring nothing more than for him to look good in costume and occasionally grunt something heroic. The Gods themselves have very little screen time , and what screen time do they have is plagued with erroneously delivered dialogue , with Ralph Fiennes rendition of Hades bordering on ridiculousness.

    But let's be honest, if you went or are planning on seeing this movie , it will be attributed to one main factor - the action set pieces. So how do those stand up ? Not as well as they should have, unfortunately. A movie of this sort lives and dies by it's set pieces, and unfortunately the ones found here are just not up to snuff. Some of them go on for far too long, in others it appears as though Perseus's allies are actually throwing themselves into danger. The Kraken, a massive, towering beast that is set up to be Hades's ultimate weapon, practically Armageddon incarnate, is dispatched so easily that you as a viewer feel cheated. There are one or two memorable sequences, one notable scene including a one-on-one between Perseus and a blade wielding demon. But like I said, the action is just not as good as it should have been.

    Watch this movie if it's ever on HBO late one night and you have nothing better to do , spare yourself the agony of knowing that you actually paid money to see it.

    Donnie Brasco is one of my favorite films of all time. It's easily one the most underrated mafia movie around. It just doesn't get the attention I think it deserves.

    Requiem for a Dream

    8.5/10

    I've heard a lot of great things about this film, but have been putting off watching it for a while. Especially after watching Pi (by the same director Darren Aronofsky) and not really liking it.

    I'm glad I watched it. It's a pretty amazing and shocking film. There are some truly gut-wrenching scenes, including a heart pounding, well edited final scene.

    The acting is superb. Especially by Ellen Burstyn who was nominated for an Oscar for her performance. Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto, and even Marlon Wayans turn in career defining performances.

    I know most of you have probably seen it, but if you haven't, I recommend it.

    I finally saw Boondock Saints: All Saints Day last night. If I gave it a 1/10 that would be generous. Five minutes into the movie, I was already annoyed and could tell that a great movie was about to be butchered by it's sequel. I feel it could have had potential if it wasn't two hours full of over-acting and a pointless plot.
    It left me wanting to rewatch the original so I could purge myself of the garbage I had witnessed with the sequel.

    Anyone care to comment on the new Sherlock Holmes? I'm debating picking up a copy of the blu-ray. Never got a chance to see it in theaters.

    But it is enjoyable. And Robert Downey Jr.is really successful.

    Whip It

    a small town story ala Juno, Snow Angels or Fargo.
    Drew Barrymore's directorial debut.

    8/10

    I enjoyed this movie for what it is. A small town, simple story filled with charming performances and a great sport as the main attraction.

    It just didn't work for me (as much as I wanted it to). Even my girls didn't like it.

    Date Night 8/10

    I really enjoyed Date Night. I love Carrell and Fey, so I was pretty much sure I would like it.
    There are some things I might have done different. If you like the work of Carrell and Fey and your just looking for a fun comedy, look no further.

    Lawrence of Arabia - 9/10

    Wow, what an incredible experience. From the absolutely astounding cinematography, to the vibrant, majestic soundtrack , and a picture perfect interpretation of a very enigmatic historical figure by Peter O'Toole, LoA truly deserves its spot among cinema's elite. Although the total running time is potentially off-putting (it clocks in at just a little under 4 hours!), the film moves along at such a gripping pace that you'll hardly notice. A near perfect film. Highly recommended.

    Hey Feev - Can I ask why Lawrence of Arabia didn't rate 10/10 with you?

    It's a classic and one of my favorites.

    I've been planning on watching LoA for a while now, but I just don't want to commit the time. Same deal with Once Upon a Time in America.

    I'm glad you liked it, that means I should enjoy it as well.

    Went to the local Art House Theater and caught :

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - I'd give it a strong 7.5/10 ... and it would be 8.5/10 except that the sub-titles were hard to read at times.

    This is in Swedish with English subtitles, and is based on the best selling book by Stieg Larsson.

    I never finished reading the book, so was completely sucked into this movie. It's very moody and starts out diverged on two very different characters ( Lisbeth and Mikael ). It's not giving anything away to say this is a mystery/thriller/who-done-it kind of movie.

    I really enjoyed it, and the setting ( though very foreign to me ) really added to the story. Which, I'm sure, was 100% intentional.

    ETA: FYI - contains some graphic sexual violence.

    Feev - It's rolling out slow, so just keep your eye on your local Art House. Hopefully, you'll be able to catch it soon. Well worth your time. Sincerely.
