Ok movie, lots of violence but too predictable.

I'm not much of a sports fan (when it comes to traditional sports) anyway but I've never been opposed to watching a sports oriented movie. Thing is, they tend to fall into the same cliched plot developments. I thought this one was headed in that direct at first, albeit with a much needed twist but before I knew it, I became emotionally invested in the movie and couldn't stop watching. The statistical angle plus the lack of a "rah-rah" ending made Moneyball stand apart from most every other sports movie I've seen so I feel like all the hype behind it is definitely warranted.

I usually go for the arty type films but this one really didn't do too much for me. I'm not sure if it was the violence or the overall lack of emotion by Gosling (which I realize was part of his character) or a combination of the two but something about the film left me feeling very empty at the end.

Having not ever read any of Hunter S. Thompson's work outside of his contributions to Rolling Stone, I was completely unfamiliar with this but doing a little legwork on the film prior to watching it certainly helped. It's not nearly as hallucinatory as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas but it was just as captivating, at least to me. I've read where some thought the ending was anti-climatic. That's true to a degree but it's not as though it leaves the viewer hanging as some films do. I thought it came to a pretty logical ending. It's just that the movie takes you on such an exhilarating up to that point that you are expecting more of a crash-bang type finish. Overall, I enjoyed it and am looking forward to more films where Depp portrays Hunter. Maybe it'll even inspired to actually read some of his books one day.

Just got The Hangover Part 2 from Netflix. Haven't watched it yet, but from what I have been told it's the same movie all overt again just in a different location. :lol: I'll report back once I watch it sometime this week.

After that, I was sick of watching the news.... So I was looking at Fandango.... and saw that there was this movie called Project X.... Image.... I was thikning FUCKING SWEET... A Remake.....


Well what I ended up seeing was this movie that was trying to blend Dazed & Confused/Super Bad/American Pie/ Can't Hardly Wait, and any other "sexy movie" Image

I really enjoyed it. Not sure what else to say about other than it's one that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike without feeling like it's pandering to either group.

Well, I watched The Hangover Part 2 yesterday and I liked it. I thought it was pretty funny, lots of good laughs. But holy crap it was the same movie as the first just set in Thailand. :lol: I liked Stu's version of Allentown. To me that was the funniest part.
