boyhood .... mixed review.

Filmed over 12 yrs about a boy growing up.(they filmed the boy few weeks a yr and combine it into a story). Ethan Hawk plays the dad. HOLY CRAPPPPPP, it was 2.5 hours. I WANTED TO KILL MYSELF it was so long.

Seeing an elementary kid from on scene then next scene is few yrs later was pretty cool and definitel kept it interesting esp. when he's like high school one yr and then BAM, kid becomes EMO in college was definitely a good transition and shock.

The entire movie was dragged on sooooo slow and there wasn't really much of a climax, the last scene of the boy's mother wasn't much of a emotional roller coaster, it's really just c'est la vie.

script 8/10
adaption 9/10
just way way way too long at the end and I wanted it to end after knowing it's 2.5 hrs long. 8/10

TMNT 7/10 - Liked Rapahel a lot in this movie, and Mikey also. Normally my favourite Is Donatello and Leo.

Scarlett Johansson was probably what you were thinking.

Finally got around to watching Battleship (though not entirely intentionally, I must say). Didn't like how the aliens were too humanoid, and the plot is pretty thin in a few places. Okay, more than a few. And the fact that the younger brother was ready to ram his destroyer into the alien ship and kill everyone on board simply because he wanted to avenge his brother... Yeah, that pissed me off and kept making me wish for a different ending for the film. lol

That said, it actually was better than I had expected. Good mindless action flick. Apart from the humanoid alien shapes, I did like the design of the alien ships... so there's always that.

Anyway, 5/10 overall.

GoG - 7.5/10

Went in with high expectations, was a tiny bit let down but overall still a fun flick. Best movie of the year (as proclaimed by some of my friends), maybe not.

The Cabin in the Woods: 7.5/10

I usually laugh and think most mainstream horror movies are lame, but this flick was refreshing as it was a sort of "meta" take on the genre. Didn't really expect the "twist". I was thoroughly entertained.

Lucy - 7/10 not as terrible as expected but I also expect more from Luc Besson and it had some major holes.

expendables 3... action flick, not bad. too bad it leaked like 3 week prior or else the box office would have done much better.

i skipped thru all the dialog which made the movie 100X better. 8/10

I went to see some quality acting from Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. Pretty mediocre.

GoG - 8.5/10 - Seen it twice, thoroughly enjoyed it both times! It has replaced The Winter Soldier as my favorite Marvel movie.

That's what Marvel's long term plan is. Hopefully it will be as epic as the comics!



Lucy - 2/10
- Not the highlight of Choi Min-Sik's or Scarlett Johansson's career.
