What was the last movie you watched? Tell us what you thought about it!

I haven't seen any movies recently, but hoping to get out to see The Great Gatsby this weekend. The last movie I saw was The Place Beyond the Pines.  It was mildly disappointing.  I thought the characters and the premise were great, but I don't like the way they chose to tell the story I guess.  I would have liked a little more action and interaction between the characters, but instead it came out disjointed and kind of boring.

Cloud Atlas a while ago, really enjoyed that movie! I liked how it was difficult to make sense of at first but how everything converged towards the end. It was a rather intelligent movie, a complex tale of thematics and current issues across various eras or simply a love story, depending how you see it.

And I've officially become a fan of Sonmi~451 :love:

I watched Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover 3 back to back at the theater :> Neither of them were that bad but I did go thinking they'd be pure rubbish.  I actually had a laugh :)

Been a while since I've done one of these, now's a good time to catch up as I'm plowing through my backlog!

The Wolf of Wall Street
Director: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill


"My name is Jordan Belfort. The year I turned 26, I made 49 million dollars, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week."

The film was entertaining throughout, though I couldn't shake the feeling that I was basically re-watching Casino and Goodfellas with stock brokers instead of gangsters. Despite being a true story, the plot was very predictable and seemed to revel more in the wacky antics of Belfort than providing a true account of what happened - such as glossing over the fact that he screwed investors out of more than $200,000,000 and has yet to pay back the court-ordered total of $110,000,000. Still, fantastic acting and the first time I've ever liked Jonah Hill in a film, ever.

Blade Runner
Director: RIdley Scott
Starring: Harrison Ford, Rutger Haur


"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain."

Exceptional considering it was made a year before I was born. Fantastic cinematography and special effects that have aged very well, I watched the "Final Cut" and my only gripe was that I wish it was an hour longer to flesh out the concepts and characters more - hopefully the PC game will fill some of the void as I've heard it's good and takes place alongside the film's timeline. Not sure how I feel about news of an upcoming sequel - would be great if Ford could be on-board for the project, but only if Scott retracts the confirmation of a long-running rumor or at least handles it well enough in the script.

Man of Steel
Director: Zac Snyder
Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams


"You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders."

I feel pretty much the same way about MoS as I felt about the first Hobbit film - I liked what I saw and can't find any real fault with it, yet somehow have the overall impression that it could have been better and wasn't particularly memorable. Loved the action sequences and how they didn't dwell too long on the origin story we've already seen a half-dozen times, and I think Cavill was well chosen for the role... I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I've never really liked Supes, so I'll go with saying that this was the best film they probably could have made with such a bland character.

I went to watch Disneys Frozen last weekend. I loved it. Finnish dubbing was great as always on Disney movies. Don't hate me, I always watch Disney dubbed. The song Frozen heart is even better in finnish imo. My favourite song is Let it Go and First time in forever reprise.

Watched Monuments Men a few weeks back, good movie, no it doesn't have a whole lot of action but it is based on a true story which I like more than blasting heads off and such.


retired from RO2 - Playing FF XIV!
