Raging Bull (1980)

Rating: 60%
I know there will be a lot of people who disagree with me but...i just find this movie only...nice.

the acting was great, well shot, well edited, it was a good movie...the problem is, I wasn't all that crazy for the plot.

the reason seemed like a boxing version of The Natural in a way. If you haven't read The Natural I'd recommend it, it's a good book, but for those who have, this is how.

Part of the message of The Natural is the idea of bringing a good message about the consequences of making bad choices with a kind of usual story you hear. and although it has several other things going on, to me, that's all it was, a story about the consequences over plenty of bad choices. so yeah.

Kick-Ass (2010)

My Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 90%

Brilliant. Just a brilliant movie. one of the best superhero movies ever.

I won't tell you anything about the plot, except that they put it together better than the book. now i'm not saying the book was bad. In fact, it's one of the best graphic novels I ever read. But what made it good here is how it was put together better.

Acting I loved. I most especially loved Nicolas Cage. We have not seen him to an extremely good movie in ages. Now he's doing some bad movies still like sorcerer's apprentice, sure. and for all we know, the lord has it that this is the last time he's going to do a truly great performance for the rest of his career, possibly. But all the same, what he did as Big Daddy was well done and love that he has finally done that for us once again after so long. Everyone else's acting was also good so yeah.

music i enjoyed, especially the main song somewhat that is played during the very end when Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl flew away. the only complaint is when Hit-Girl is about to fight a whole bunch of guys and it kinda starts off with the beginning of the music is this...idk what it is but i just remember is as some song where superman i said halfway through the chorus and then when the fighting starts, it jumps to that "Bad Reputation" song. i mean say what you will, but that kinda ruined the mood for me.

SO there you have it. great movie, well done, and I look forward to what's in store with the second one they are currently making.

Greenberg (2010)

My Rating on Rotten Tomatoes: 10%

when we choose our selection of rented movie to watch on one tuesday night, is was a decision between this movie and Iron Man 2...halfway through the movie we were like, "WHY THE HECK DIDN'T WE CHOOSE IRON MAN 2!?!?!?!?!"

as far as ben stiller's actual character, Greenberg, I would like to have learned more about his previous breakdown that happened a long time before the events of the movie. to try to describe Greenberg, he's a mixture of Michael Scott from the office, a bit of my own autism, and the autism of someone who is good with building things, is nice sometimes or wants to do one things then he wants to do something else the rest of the time, has a terrible temper and all that jazz. you are just not comfortable with the character the entire time. and i mean uncomfortable as in, at least Michael Scoot is sometimes funny and is a lovable character to quite a few of us.

now the plot...IT DOESN'T HAVE AN END WHEN YOU WANT ONE!!! i'm sure that spoiled it for those who haven't seen it and want to. But you know what? I! DON'T! GIVE! A! DARN! IT'S A BAD MOVIE AND I'M DOING YOU A FAVOR BY TELLING YOU THIS AND THAT'S FINAL!!! there's some small laughs and some not all that censored sex for those who are perverts, but that's it!!!

so there you have it, it's a bad movie, not worth your time, and my family and i are really pissed that we didn't choose Iron Man 2 and in some way decided to not watch this movie at all. You are welcome!!!

Dead Again (1991)

My Rotten Tomatoes rating: 80%

this is actually a good mystery movie. i recommend it.

it's mostly another mystery movie about murder and love and so on but what they come up with when it comes to telling this particular story about love and murder and such, i think you would like.
