Went to see Red 2 tonight. Not as good as the first one, but it was entertaining.

I just saw Gravity.

I also give it high marks. I would say 8 out of 10. I kept thinking of all the things that are wrong that Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted about when it came out.

The imagery was outstanding.

I usually don't care for 3D, but it was my only choice. I was suitably impressed by how well done it was. During the ISS scene I kept ducking!

I would have preferred less floaty stuff. Just because it's a 3D movie doesn't mean we need stuff floating around all over the place just so show us it's in 3D. I would knock it down a bit if I saw it in 2D for all that.

I also saw the second Thor movie a week or two ago.

Tom Hiddleston is doing a bang up job of playing Loki, and using some more of Simonson's Thor material just makes it all that much better!

I was completely surprised at who played Malekith. I didn't care for all the tech the Elves had though. Why weren't the Asgardians keeping up? Swords versus projectile weapons? That doesn't make any sense!

I still enjoyed it though!

Now they need to bring on Surtur. I still think the first Thor movie should have just started with a star being compressed into something that would make sense as a ingot of space stuff.

I saw Captain Phillips last night on Blu-ray. What an excellent movie! It's a shame that Tom Hanks wasn't nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the movie. I know he's won others, but he's really good in this one. Perhaps his best movie since Castaway.

Cool movie. I liked the Seal scenes.

All Is Lost with Robert Redford. He gives a great performance, but it's a rather boring. I was hoping for more to be honest.

Captain Phillips is a pretty good movie! It surprised me with the aspect that they went with.

I went to see RoboCop this weekend(my weekend, not the real weekend Wink ), and I really tried to not compare everything to the original, but how could I not?

On it's own, I think it's just ok, and I don't think it hits any note very well.

Comparing it as a remake, to me it flounders and doesn't hit any of the notes that the original did so well.

I would say that if you want to see it, don't go for any upsell like IMAX or 3D, or wait till it gets to your local discount theater.

Prisoners. I think it deserves its higher 8.1 IMDb rating. It had me interested the entire way through. And the acting was really solid.

IMDB ratings are really a joke.

I normally click through the rating and look at the Demographic breakdowns. Sometimes its young girls or old guys who vote it down but your own gender and age group give a better rating. For Prisoners though its the youngsters who have voted it to 8-7-8.8 Its the over 45's that have given it the lowest ratings.

I really liked Nebraska. It ended up being an emotional father and son movie for me. I'm also afraid to say this, but the mother also reminded me of my own mom. Especially the "sick in the head" comment. My mom use to say that all the time. Laughing

I finally saw The Wolf Of Wall Street.

Really good time, and I found it to be well paced so I didn't even notice it was already three hours when it was over.

Is this movie grossly exaggerated?

Most likely. I haven't read the book that Belfort wrote. It's still a blast though!
