    Lets Be Cops - Put simply, it just should have been funnier.
    I've been wanting to re watch the trilogy for some time now, just don't want to bother with online, hope Netflix will catch my drift after tryin to search for it last 2-3 weeks

    really? then you need to go tell the Physicist that helped them that, since you know he made a video commenting on the movie and pointing out the theories used.

    Hunger Games - Mockingjay part 1 : 8/10

    I really enjoyed it ! Though it had it's lengthy bits, there was action and contextual density with politics, media use in propaganda, character, etc... Though still based on a "teenager" book, the transposition to movie was nicely done and executed.

    Can't wait for the final movie ! It's the one with scenes shot in France, near where I used to work ! And a colleague lives not far from another set and saw J. Law and Liam Hemsworth with a crowd of curious bystanders looking at the set. I wanted to punch him in jealousy. Also, my girlfriend asked me if it was OK if she was ******* for Jennifer Lawrence. I said "sure !"

    Looked to me like soft, Hollywood version of good, old Japanese Battle Royal with, naturally, the teeange love triangle that was most boring part of all.

    You talking about the first movie, right ? Yeah, it was that. The second movie was more intelligent. The third movie (the one I mention and I've used the wrong title, it's "MOCKINGJAY", not Catching Fire who's the second movie) is following the steps of the second movie.

    I'm still holding off on watching Mockingjay until the matinee.
    Though already some screen captures have trickled in, and I made the mistake of seeing a shot of a certain somebody after the rescue. Just from that brief glimpse, I'm pretty flabbergasted and impressed they didn't pull any punches there about his appearance.

    Concept is much older than BR. Also first movie dropped the ball more ways than can be counted.

    I need an aeronautical engineer and a mechanical engineer that specialises in propulsion systems, not a physicist, to explain to me the propulsion technologies behind the crafts featured in the movie. Since, at the very least their capabilities are in contradiction with each other and at best, such a thing is impossible to pull out.


    But link it still. Have not seen it.

    Screening of Strange Days

    Won't rate this, it's one of those personal films. It might be a bit funny now to see all the ideas and concepts that were thrown at the coming of the 21st century, I don't think in the end the film is trying to say one thing will be the end all be all. Rather that things break, stress and tension on national scales cause change at some point. The SQID tech is a nice compliment without trying to make it only about that, still though the morality and ethics involved in that type of technology and experience is challenging.

    You can always point out the amazing things, but it's too apparent how easily someone can become a fiend or a junkie. Looking for the first high, actually kind of getting it over and over but it's not the same. When you run the risk of turning your good memories into their own kind of nightmare. Again, this is done to the backdrop of a police scandal, social unrest, police state etc. I think it was smart to approach it that way, since conveying that idea purely by itself doesn't ease anyone into it. There is always a sense of the SQID being a bit of full body voyeurism for most of its users.

    Oh my... Totally forgot to mention I saw Coriol**** (2011) the other day ! Modern warfare and Shakespeare dialogues, a bit confusing, but at times incredibly fitting ! They tried the same thing as Romeo and Juliet or A Summer Night's Dream.

    I give it a 7.5/10, because it had long monologues that can have their place on stage, but sound weird in a movie.

    Trivia : it was shot in Serbia and I think in Croatia or maybe Montenegro.

    Finally saw Mockingjay and, despite my bemusement as to how elements of it have been hijacked (heheheh...) by protests here and back in the US, I thought it was a great movie.
    I was honestly surprised as to how much they didn't pull punches in terms of the carnage depicted; honestly some of the stuff likely was beginning to push the rating boundaries.
    Naturally, towards the end was probably a highlight; like I mentioned, I'm honestly impressed at how horrific they remade him for that scene. And they managed to get the important concepts conveyed; though I was disappointed that they didn't show the dark side to D13 (even if did still look like a communist hellhole).

    Give a try at Richard III then (1995 version with Ian McKellen).

    Left behind with Nicholas Cage. 3/10. Or perhaps lower. I mean the plot is the christian rapture one, and i guess if you are a christian you will like this movie more...But the plot, dialouge and more was not very good and is at best extremely mediocre. Perhaps there was some sort of message it tried to convey, however not being a christian it just weren't delivered well and i don't think it would for a religious person either. A christian science fiction movie about the rapture probably don't appeal to many, but cage's acting was pretty good. Doubt he will turn up for a sequel though.

    November man with pierce brosnan 6/10
    A classical CIA plot ish movie with killers and hot women. Nothing that hasn't been shown before, it wasn't really a movie that had me excited or on the edge all of the time. And the main characters actions is rather questionable considering you couldn't really call the enemies the bad guys. But i suppose his character was supposed to be a dark, somewhat gritty one. This movie works as light entertainment but don't expect much else.
