Tomb Raider (2001) - 9/10
I've seen it before and I love it, it's not perfect but it's amazing.
Plus it's the one with Daniel Craig.

Red Dawn - 7.5/10

If it wasn't for some of the acting been so bad i'd rate this higher. Homefront all over.

The Man With The Iron Fists

7.5/10

A lotta violence, great fighting scenes, that's it, no more to offer. I'd watch it again though.

Red Dawn 6/10
It was a good action movie but it lacked the heart and spirit of the original (which I would give a 9/10). Josh was good however.

Revolver was on earlier, not going to lie it did confuse me a little bit. Sort of a mind game movie which was basically it's intentions but it was alright I suppose. 7/10

The Thing (2011) : 7/10

It was never going to match my love for the original but it was good fun and almost like a pleasing tribute to something I'm familiar with. Adebisi from Oz and plenty of screaming, mistrust and burning stuff ahoy!

I last watched lovely molly which i give a 6/10. It was ok as it was confusing and kept you thinking all the way through but i just dont think there were enough scares in it.

Was a good movie. Silvester Stallone's quotes were fucking funny!

Rise of the Guardians 8/10 - It was fun and just a really magical film. Makes you want to believe again.

Flight 9/10 - A wonderful performance from Denzel Washington (definitely worthy of the oscar nom) with a powerful story. The plane crash scene was one of the more intense things I've watched in a while.

Officer Down (2013) - 6/10
Another enjoyable cop thriller. A bit complex, but generally good.

Death Race 3: Inferno
- 6/10
Decent, but not as good as the previous two. Lots of action, little substance. Worth a watch however.

Loved it...but it left me really fucking depressed. I recommend it to those who enjoy Asian films. God damn it I'm in such a lousy mood after watching that movie lol.

Haven't seen A Bittersweet Life but I'v seen The Man from Nowhere a bunch of times
As for The Chaser...they did an excellent job making the viewers hate the god damn murderer...I was so happy the girl escaped and was going to get help only to get killed by the guy anyway, I was furious lol.
Nothing went well for anyone in that movie it was super depressing even though it was a fantastic film.
You really only get this with Asian films it would seem. Can't tell you how many movies I've seen with bad ending instead of the generic hollywood happy ending bullshit.
But it has me hoping for a happy ending just once in a while lol.

Gonna check out A Bittersweet Life.

Life Of Pi
Rating: 8,8

At first I wasn't sure this was a movie fit for me, but after reading serveral reviews I thought let's give it a go. And I was impressed the movie came me a whole other point of view at life, and let me started thinking of how mankind always looks at what we have and what we want, but yet as long as you are happy with what you have and be graithfull for what you have have you are succesfull in life.

A must watch for sure.

People who call The Thing (2011) a remake, need to watch it again. It's a prequel. Were a lot of the beats point for point from Carpenters? Yup. Was it similar in tone? Yup. Was it a remake? NO! I personally dug it for what it was.

Last flicks I saw:

Stoker - 7.5/10 - It was a brilliant piece of film making, but fell short as a movie. The story was too vague to be a great first watch. I'll check it out again for sure.

Les Miserables (2012) - 9.5/10 - Fucking fantastic film. The only negative was the casting of Russell Crowe. I like him as an actor, but his voice just didn't fit at all. Too flat, with little emotion. Even his "finale" didn't feel right. Everyone else? Fucking phenomenal. Anne Hathaway totally earned her naked golden man. If you can watch her single shot performance of I Dreamed A Dream, and not feel the pure emotion, you my friend, are devoid of soul.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) [5/10]

Not as cool as the first one. Although I like Dwayne Johnson this movie has just too much The Rock. Also missing the jokes of Marlon Wayans aka Ripcord. Maybe Olympus Has Fallen will make up for it.

I think I'll check it out, in time. Right now I'm going over some old martial arts films, closing off with some stuff involving Bruce Lee. Things like Enter the Dragon, The Big Boss, and Game of Death. Enter the Dragon was one of the first martial arts films I watched.

And Game of Death! Who else remembers that fight with Kareem Abdul Jabbar?!

And the opening with Chuck Norris!

Zero Dark Thirty - 9/10

I really enjoyed the story. The torture scenes were tough to watch though. It is amazing how much work goes on behind the scenes to keep all of us safe here in USA. I also really enjoyed seeing how the Navy SEALs got the job done.
