1) Do you watch a lot of war films?
2) Do you like old movies?
3) Have you seen Bridge on the RIver Kwai (1957)?

About time! lol ok SPOILER ALERT

The Purge is a really good movie about anarchy. Basically there's a nationwide (or worldwide, idk) special day where everyone is allowed to commit whatever crimes they wanted and the government would not interfere at all until the next day. The family puts themselves on lockdown and crazy stuff starts happening right after that. Although i expected it to be more out in the open rather than just inside their house. The fight scenes were pretty intense and the moments were pretty suspenseful. I can't wait til the next one.

Some great movies as of late (past year)

Wolf of wall street - I'd recommend this to anybody. Probably the best movie ive seen in quite a while.

Amazing Spiderman 2 - subpar but entertaining and fun to watch. graphics a tad bit over done

12 years a slave - Another amazing movie that I expected to be a bust, but turned out to be the top 5 of the year

Transcendent - Was overall a great movie

Divergent - actually one of my favorites recently. I thought it would be cheese, but it was quite enjoyable. I almost wanted to make a mafia game out of it

Noah - Emma Watson and side boob. What else can I say

I have. My father has a degree in Film, and Art Theory so while other children watched porn I watched everything from Nouvo Cinema Paradiso (I do not think I spelt it right) to looking at the camera angles, and the use of shadow in the Seventh Seal. :P

Do not get me wrong Autumn Sonata is right up there, alongside Ordet, and a few others; Bergman was love man. I do however feel a strange connection to Wild Strawberries, from the scene of the clocks without hands, to his memory of sitting in the strawberry patch with his love. Its so...powerful.

You do not get cinema like that anymore. I mean where do you find anything like this or, have you seen Melancholia? Oh Lord is that powerful! Then there is the classic Lawrence of Arabia. In love there is Doctor Zhivago, if you do not cry, go find a heart. :P

I think what separated Bergman from the rest, even from Palonski is that his symbolism and semiotic imagery is so much more transcendental. Also no one takes a face shot like Bergman.

I cannot believe I found another lover of movies *screams like a little girl*

If you are talking about Lars Von Triers Melancholia I am sorry it was no where near Bergman-esque.

I attempted watching The Godfather online, but the talking was so muttery that I couldn't hear anything. And since i knew TG was driven by the conversation, I just gave up after 10 minutes.

Of course it is not. That does not mean that it is not a great movie. To say that Bergman's movie is better than a movie is not a criticism, or else I would be criticizing 99 percent of all films.

A great movie to watch with your whole family

I thought this movie was going to be cheesy, but I was wrong. The movie was entertaining and the plot was great.

12 years a slave - Another amazing movie that I expected to be a bust, but turned out to be the top 5 of the year
I cri evry tme.

Transcendent - Was overall a great movie
Haven't watched it yet, but I heard its a bad movie.

Divergent - actually one of my favorites recently. I thought it would be cheese, but it was quite enjoyable. I almost wanted to make a mafia game out of it
Bsh beat you to it. He already made a Divergent mafia game in the beginner series.

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's my review for metacritic:

Guardians of the Galaxy was one of those movies where the trailer didn't do it justice. When I saw the trailer originally before a different movie, I thought that it'd be a terrible Marvel movie. I didn't know who these guys were, and I thought Marvel was taking a risk that wouldn't pay off. I was wrong. This movie was hilarious, high action, and just plain awesome. All the heroes have special things about them that make them funny. The special effects are also amazing. It felt like new Star Trek and Avengers were mixed together and served with a side of hilarious comedy. All in all, 9/10 is a fair score for this movie.

Can we talk about how Blue Velvet is one of the best movies ever?

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I had no patience for it. His camera is too shaky. He is better than most. But his peculiar style is better employed to indie movies such as the controversial Elephant. But in hollywood his particular skills are underutilized. Its not a bad director, but a mis-match in labour, funding and production values. Ok?
