"The Wolf of Wall Street"

fantastic..DiCaprio is one the greats of our time

Read some not so flattering reviews of this film. Also, why is it 3 hours long?

You can read negative reviews of ANY movie. By and large, I think the reviews have been very positive. It's got 8.7 stars out of 10 on IMDB right now. That's very high.

The 3 hours go by fast. The movie is great and my guess is that Leo DiCaprio is getting an Oscar nomination for his performance as Jordan Belfort.

You are right, there is always a critic with a bad review. The critic writing the review I read did a good job explaining why they thought the movie wasn't great. That doesn't mean their opinion is correct or that others wouldn't have a different opinion. It is, after all just one critic's view and as you've pointed out, other critics might feel differently.

The warewolf, mystic river were my last two. I really liked MYSTIC RIVER.

Fantastic film.  Sean Penn = Great actor

Watched Captain Phillips last week ~ VERY INTENSE.  Tom Hanks = Great actor

Saw American Hustle this week   Undecided really  Huh
There's nothing uniquely American about the hustle or the characters, and there's nothing profound embedded in the film's plot. It's a fun caper with good performances by the whole cast ~ good, not great, not Academy Award-worthy. Overrated.  

Looking forward to seeing Lone Survivor and 12 Years a Slave soon.

28 Weeks Later. Not as scary as 28 Days Later but a lot darker.

Full Metal Jacket, last 2 nights. It was on TV both times so i figured it would be rude to ignore a timeless classic. Expendables prior to that.

PIECES (1982) - a thoroughly entertaining, but totally batshit crazy italian slasher film. it starts with a young lad axing his mother to death and then cutting her to pieces with a saw after she destroys the jigsaw puzzle he was putting together. the police, along with a nosy neighbour soon come along, and our lad craftily blags his way out of being fingered for offing his dear ol' ma.

fast forward some years and there's a spate of gruesome murders on a university campus somewhere in boston where the (sexy female) victims are being attacked by a chainsaw wielding psycho who is apparently chopping off and keeping various body parts for which we later find out is for a rather macabre human jigsaw puzzle.

enter the clueless police, who in their increasing desperation to catch the killer, enlist the help of a male student to do their detective work for them. he's partnered with a female cop who is working undercover as the tennis coach (she's fucking useless at tennis  Grin).

oh, and then there's the utterly bizarre kung fu scene that just comes the fuck out of nowhere and leaves you wondering, 'why did that happen?'.

anyway, there's sex, nudity, and gore aplenty with great special effects in this odd but fun film.

EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) - GROUNDHOG DAY meets THE MATRIX meets STARSHIP TROOPERS in this highly entertaining, scifi blockbuster, starring tom cruise (who is awesome btw), as an unwilling recruit sent to the front to fight some alien force that has attacked and conquered most of europe. hopelessly out of his depth in battle, the inevitable soon happens that results in a rather strange twist of fate for cruise. i won't say anymore for risking spoilers.

great action, some very funny laugh out loud moments, and of course, bill paxton Cool oh, and emily blunt was kickass too even though she's fugly.

8/10

THE MALIBU BIKINI SHOP (1986) - the last time i watched this on video, i spent most of the film hoping that my erection would go unnoticed Grin fortunately, or maybe unfortunately. i had no such worries this time.

a little dated but was still surprisingly fun to watch. 6/10

i swear, nobody does cheese and feel good quite like the 80s did Cool

Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011). Netflixed it. One of the better recent films no one's heard of.

Had no idea Stanley Kubrick grew up in New York. Thought for sure he was a lifelong Brit.

CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS (1953) - the city is chicago. we get to peek at the underbelly of the city for one night only. we follow an honest but jaded cop who's ready to throw it all in for a nightclub dame and a chance to follow his dream. only things don't pan out as expected when he is partnered for the night by a police officer he's never seen before.

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE meets noir. 7/10

Looking forward to Fincher's Gone Girl, but I'm finishing the book first. Very interesting read so far.
