Lone Survivor was good. It won't rank at the top of my war movie list, but it probably had the most realistic and visceral firefight that I've ever seen. Brutal. I felt every bullet and piece of flying shrapnel.

Anchorman 2 was ok, but not nearlly as good as the first. I'll give the film makers credit though, they went for it. I mean, they went really far out there. Not Tim and Eric out there, but pretty close.

I was at my little cousin's house and we watched After Earth.

It was terrible, it was really slow and doesn't have much action, and even when it does have action its not very thrilling.

Aren't they coming out with another one this year with The Rock as Hercules?


Yep, I hope it's better, but the Rock isn't known for being a rather good actor, but more a muscle bag...

Analyze This with Robert De Niro. Mostly funny but had some sad moments, stop playing with my emotions.

I was going to watch that when it came out but it received so many bad reviews I didn't want to waste money. I think the purpose of that movie was just to get Will Smith's son more exposure.

TV double bill yesterday, Super 8. The usual unrecommendable dorky movie, however that initial train crash is something else. Caught me off-guard, pretty impressive.

... And only upon looking it up now, I was gonna comment how the general Creature + all army hellfire breaking loose (are they all going nuts, or have their weapons been taken over? Never became very clear to me, but then arguably I can be a tad slow) was so Cloverfield -- but I see now that's by the same director. Go figure. + Spielberg as the producer, OK kids, sci-fi... got it

Then Drag Me To Hell, Sam Raimi goes Evil Dead again LOL, there's nothing much to recommend it really, but the funny over-the-top bits sure are funny (and over-the-top) I'm quite sure that general gypsy curse plot has been done before in exactly the same way, but can't put my finger on it now. Terrible movie, if I recall.

Plus, are there no gypsies in the US to vehemently protest these horrible stereotypes? Oh, well...

Yesterday I saw Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The plot was a little predictable but it wasn't to bad over all. Chris Pine is a good actor, but I find it hard to believe that he could recover from two fractured vertebrae in a helicopter crash and return to hand to hand combat with no difficulty whatsoever. Kevin Coster adds a great touch to the film and doesn't try to appear like the most valuable actor in the cast.
I give it 3 of 5 stars.

I watched Despicable Me 2 yesterday. It's so adorable and fluffy.

@Macil
I thought Drag Me to Hell was awesome. It's meant to be over the top, it's meant to be tounge in cheek, and it wasn't trying to be something groundbreaking. Even with all that said, Drag Me to Hell was a much more effective horror movie than most movies that try to take it seriously.

I saw Captain Phillips two nights ago, great performance from Tom Hanks.

The mortal instruments. It was a bit too boring. Not a lot happened. The book is better.

Yes, sure. I just thought all the rest of it, say the movie to tie those funny bits together, didn't have all that much going for it.

Or not that much more than, say, Evil Dead 1 & 2, indeed. Maybe that particular novelty has worn off, a near-three decades down the line (but kudos to him for wanting to return to his roots, if that is what he was doing). Or maybe I just wasn't quite in the mood

Anyways: To each their own, and sure I've seen much worse. See also this review btw, c/o W'edia, caution here be spoilers: http://www.ugo.com/movies/drag-me-to-hell-review-should-have-just-been-evil-dead .

The Matrix. Also, this computer is not real. Neither is yours.

I watched a Michael Bay film. 90% of it consisted of explosions.
