    Prometheus

    I'm kind of glad my expectations were lowered, because I did end up enjoying this. It's only a fraction what it could have been, but given Ridley Scott's recent track record I don't know why I expected anything else.

    I guess a 7.5 is probably a good rating, but I've come to the conclusion that numerical scores can eat a fat dick. I hate trying to rate movies.

    Prometheus

    Several plot points get brought up that are never explained. Really annoying, and somewhat hollow film, but entertaining nonetheless.

    A clockwork orange 10/10- I can see why its been made out to be such a classic. Really my kind of movie. Just fucking trippy. A real thinker.

    Prometheus (6.5/10)

    It was alright, it had a lot of potential but couldn't live up to it. The 3D was a huge letdown too despite being filmed with 3D cameras.

    Snow White and the Huntsman

    I actually enjoyed it. It doesn't help that I find Kristen Stewart attractive. Then again, it seems I have a thing for "plain jane" brunettes. But yeah, entertaining movie.

    Prometheus - Awesome, but not as good as the other Alien films 8/10.

    Seeing The Dictator on Saturday, looks good, I love SBC.

    Just watched all of the Die Hard movies again.

    Die Hard (8.5/10) Never gets old.
    Die Hard 2 (7/10) The story line feels a bit rushed and the action scenes are more forgettable
    Die Hard with a Vengeance (8.5/10) I love Samuel L. Jackson's character, and the plot is pretty good.
    Live Free or Die Hard (6.5/10) Besides the increasing absurdity of the stunts John McClane has to pull off, I never get a good, consistent rhythm from the movie.

    The War on Democracy (2007) - Powerful, eye-opening, heartbreaking and very informative. Busts some of US's fucked up foreign policies wide open.

    Arn The Last Templar.

    Though not very action-packed as I tend to prefer, it had a great story and recaptured the essence of the time quite effectively. For a Swedish film as well, it was very well put together. Roughly a 7/10.

    Wrath of the Titans.

    0 out of 5.

    Why do shitty movies even getting the funding for sequels?

    More like, "Need an action fix? Watch anything with Donnie Yen in it."

    In any case, I finally got around to watching The Raid: Redemption. Holy shit.

    Agreed. Snow White and the Hunstman was better than I thought. It didn't delve into romance, thankfully.

    MEN IN BLACK 3 7/10

    Will Smith. Damn the guy still hot. I quite enjoyed it. It's not as good as Part 1 but hey there are still those aliens. Got teary eyed with the last part though. lol
