    Bleach: Hell Verse 6/10

    Great OST, weak movie, lame character designs and villains. The team could have gone the extra mile in fleshing out the environment of Hell within the Bleach-verse. 'Diamond Dust Rebellion' was far better. However, Ichigo x Orihime scenes are always welcome.

    Samantha Esteban is steamin' hot..

    Harsh Times 7/10

    Not too sure about this one. Sort of a weaker rendition of 'Training Day' in a way. Bale's performance is worth checking out in this flick.

    Scent of A Woman 8/10

    It was only until after I finished the movie did I discover that Al Pacino won an oscar in the Best Actor category for this role. Well deserved. A compelling and heartfelt tale of persistence, humility, and integrity.

    The Godfather - 7/10

    Coppola's subtlety in style of getting the story elements across is recognized, and while I appreciate the production value and status of this film, I did not fully appreciate the film. Perhaps I've been too spoiled as a visual consumer with films that are splashed with a plethora of explosions, garish violence and sex, to be able to enjoy this milestone in film history fully. I'll give this one another go in the future.

    The Godfather: Part II - 7.5/10

    A very enjoyable watch, and an interesting exploration into the rise of Vito Corleone. The only gripe I have with this entry is the transitioning between scenes from the past and present day of the plot. The ending hits hard if you pay attention; one of my favorites.

    The Godfather: Part III - 8/10

    This installment was more in my taste. Unfortunately, some of the performances were a little over the top and unbelievable. In fact, even Pacino's portrayal of the Michael Corleone character was a bit off. Although I did enjoy this sequel a lot more than the previous entries to the series, I do acknowledge that this entry is definitely the weakest of the trilogy.

    The Descendants - 9/10

    Great movie, but very sad... I think it should win Oscar for best movie.

    A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas - Horrible.

    Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory - Wish it covered more on the development of the case instead of doing those recaps. I still liked it. Interested in watching West of Memphis now.

    I still think its a shame they still had to plea guilty or basically claim responsibility for it to happen

    Yeah I know, but that was the best if not only option they had to be freed.

    I'm eager to watch West of Memphis... apparently it brings forth new twist(s) to the case.

    Clerks - Classic. The writing is absolutely fantastic and highly enjoyable. Sucks to see Kevin Smith's talent fizzling away over the years though.

    Clerks is unbelievable. I try to watch it once a month. The writing is out of this world good.

    ^ It's pretty fucking good. Rides the line between sentimental shit and the comedy very well.

    Mission Impossible IV: Ghost Protocol - Really enjoyed it. There was a mild lull towards the end but other than that it was just as fun and action-packed as I had expected it to be. Cruise really knows his shit when it comes to production.

    Epic fail. The Artist was the best thing I've seen all year.

    Absolutely. One of the most quotable movies in my "catalogue."

    The first 2 resident evils are pretty bad (especially 2). At least 1 left you with a kind of erie feeling. Plus in 2 how did her hair change so much in so little time. I'm pretty sure mist hair stylists were zombified by the time she woke up

    50/50 - 9/10

    This movie really takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions at times. And it does so extremely well.
