I have not seen robocop since I was a kid. Loved it back then. Never cared to watch the third one. The new one looks lame so far as well. Happpily because of robocop I got robocop vs. Terminators on snes. Great game!

Finally watched goldmember. Funnier than I thought! Tried watching 10,000 Bc again. So boring! Probably what it is like to watch Clan of the Cavebear.

Now watching Scott pilgrim. This actor is so retarded now,but movie is decent.

Movie 43

Is Halley Berry crazy? She has the worsttime picking good movies to star in. First Catwoman ( I forced myself to watch whole thing) and now this?

Looks horrible!

Now back to Balls of fury. So weird.


@ pezus

You saying sopranos is worth the watch ten years later?

Movie 43 will probably be a bad movie but the trailers still look better then the trailer for Scary Movie 5.



Or A haunted House.....


I love Kick -ass! Scott pilgrim is good as well.

I watched Prometheus last night. Not impressed. I feel it ruined the Alien fanchise for me. It would have been better as a stand alone film and had nothing to do with the Alien universe.



I agree. Thank goodness I dodged the hyppe and did not see it till redbox.

I keep watching Mr. DEEDS even though it is a pile of horse manure. One of those Sandler movies that he thinks he is being funny, but everything falls flat. Possibly his girlfriend in it. Ryder. Really disliked her in it. Sandler as well.

That's my boy

Little Nicky

8 crazy nights

Bedtime stories ( actually, switch places with little nicky)

Mr. Deeds

The twin one.
Chuck and larry
Bulletproof


Beyond that they are more or less enjoyable. Or at least watchable. Am I forgetting other piles of trash from him?

ARGOFUCKYOURSELF!
Argo was my 'best of 2012'...Cast was excellent (and the resemblance to the real life protagonists is eerie). Probably the most nerve racking,edge of the seat movie this year. Ben Affleck's career ressurgence is complete. I think he will have an actor/director career to eventually rival Clint Eastwood's (give it 20 or 30 years!).



Playing: Borderlands(great co-op,HUGE amount of content),Too Human(better late than never lol),Saints Row 3(Penetrator ftw),Minecraft 360,Harry Potter Lego. 

Patiently waiting for:  Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2

I thought that I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry was pretty good its miles better then Grow Ups and also better then You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

I watched Airheads the other night. Forgot that Adam Sandler was in that film. He wasnt annoying in it either. Mainly because it wasnt his usual "comedy" which is talking normally then SUDDENLY SHOUTING! Forgot how funny the film was.



Saw Looper last night. The blow-by-blow:

What I liked:
+ There were some really great performances all around. I especially liked Bruce Willis and the little kid on the farm.
+ The story was really interesting, in that the future version Joe wasn't a mentor for the present one but an antagonist--and while his actions were monstrous, his motives were understandable.
+ I also liked how small scale and personal the story felt throughout. I don't like sci-fi movies that get way too hung up on their sci-fi-ness.
+ The pacing was solid. Not once did I feel the story dragged too much.
+ The action scenes were amazing, heart-pumping stuff.

What I didn't like:
- The psychic abilities in the story, and how important they become, feels really tacked on. Where did the powers come from? Why didn't they appear until the future? Why did that one character's abilities so surpass everyone else's? That's one aspect of the story that needed to be fleshed out a lot more.
- The movie's vision of the future is nothing special. They were going for something more grounded, which I appreciated, but I don't feel like they would've lost much if the film had been set in the present--or further ahead in time, to where they could've done more with the setting. Most of the movie centers around technology that doesn't exist in the present anyway.
- The ending tied things up a little TOO neatly, mainly because of an implausible bloodbath at the base of Joe's boss.

All in all? I'd give it an 8/10.

Looper had huge plot holes but it had a lot of heart and great acting. It´s too bad Joseph Gordon Levitt looks like usually because I thought he looked awesome in Looper. Looper was one of my fovurite movies of 2012
