I've been watching a lot of movies lately and I thought I'd share, perhaps save some of you from some really poor movies and point out some really good movies.  Just my opinions.

 

Yesterday I watched Grudge Match starring De Niro and Stallone.  I really enjoyed it.  Both actors turned in very good performances.  I was kinda surprised at how good it was.  Gave it 5 stars.

 

Couple days ago I watched Thor: The Dark World.  Kinda felt like something was missing.  Gave it 3 stars.

 

I guess I should explain the ratings.  I've rated almost 700 movies on NF and they run from one star (hated it) to five stars (loved the living daylights out of it).  

 

Saw Out of the Furnace.  Liked it, didn't like the ending.  Gave it four stars.  Worth watching.

 

Made the mistake of watching Winter's Bone.  Thought it was terrible, one star.  Dismal movie. 

 

Back to Stallone and Escape Plan with Arnold.  Enjoyed it.  Gave it 4 stars.

 

Saw The Purge, liked it gave it 5 stars.  Sequel to follow soon.

 

Next up, American Hustle.  Nothing like what I expected.  Gave it 2 stars.  Really disappointing.

 

12 Years A Slave.  Wow!  What a disturbing movie!  Gave it 5 stars.  This is really a must see flick.

 

Captain Phillips.  I didn't think I'd like this, but it's really good, surprisingly good.  5 stars.

 

Here's a movie that nobody will miss, I think.  The Last Days On Mars.  Terrible.  1 star.  I was looking forward to this one and watched it just after Gravity.  Hard to decide which one was worse. Gravity got 1 star too.  What was all the publicity about?   

 

Enough for now, I'll put more up soon.

Of all the Oscar nominated movies, American Hustle was the one I liked the least. But Gravity is one of my all time favorites. I'm a space nut however and very few movies get as much right as that one. I haven't watched the Blu ray however, I saw it on IMAX.

Christian Bale played an odd part in American Hustle, I thought.  The part where he was fixing his hair looked real, that surprised me.  

 

I usually like space movies too, but that one just didn't grab me.  Imax might have been an entirely different experience.
