"""" Hulk Smashhhh."""


Hey everyone. I know I haven't been here long but Ime going to start a review thread. It will just give members a chance to see what movies I like and dislike. It will also give me a chance to get to know people on here a little better. My reviews aren't going to be to big like some members on here. I'll just keep them short and sweet.


Reviews may contain slight spoilers.

The Wolf Of Wall Street


mirror

Directed by
Martin Scorsese

Starring
Matthew McConaughey
Jonah Hill
Leonardo DiCaprio
Margot Robbie


The Wolf Of Wall Street is easily one of the best movies to have come around in a long time. It's sleek, stylish, sexy, and very daring. It's a movie full of sex, drugs, and humour. With some very fine performances, and some crazy moments it's easy to see why this movie receives so much praise. Martin Scorsese shows once again why he's one of the greatest directors of all time.

Good work. However, we can't tag these for the main review page, as we require at least a good 2-3 paragraphs of content for that section of the site. For your own thread, any length is of course OK.

He's doing better than me though when he said he was working things out, I've been here near 3 years and still haven't figured out how to put the pictures on either side of the writing.


Nice, short, to the point review though, Optimus...

I love The Wolf of Wall Street. It was my favorite film of last year, is one of my all time favorite Scorsese movies, and one of my favorite films of all time. Just a lot of fun to watch. Kept me in stitches the whole time.

I know I have quoted jaydee's thread like 100 times. I always end up saying "bump this" and moving on.

I have watched Wolf twice now and really enjoyed it both times. It was just outside my top 10 but I think it should have bumped a couple of movies out.

Have you seen Master and Commander? That's a good one!
Masterfully done.

The Dark Knight Rises

Directed by
Christopher Nolan

Starring
Christian Bale
Tom Hardy
Joseph Gordan Levitt
Anne Hathaway


I had never been more excited about a movie more than The Dark Knight Rises. It was the most anticipated movie I'd ever seen, and yet it turned out to be a huge disappointment. This is probably Christopher Nolans worst movie yet. It was lazy compared to his previous work, and it had no originality at all. The story was very weak, the characters where very Meh, and the whole movie felt a mess at times, which is not like a Christopher Nolan movie. I think this movie was more about the money than the fans. (You sold out here Nolan).


Iron Man

Directed by
Jon Favreau

Starring
Robert Downey Jr
Jeff Bridges
Terrence Howard
Gwyneth Paltrow


Iron Man in my opinion is the best comic book movie out there. Ime a big fan of almost all comic book movies, even some of the less popular movies like the Punisher. But for me Iron Man is bigger and better than them all. It's cool, fun, action packed, and visually amazing. Robert Downey Jr is fantastic. His performance of Tony Stark is exceptional and the whole origin of the character is one of the best out there.

It's okay, I'll just post in here for the time being. If I wrote anything longer I'd only end repeating over everything. Ime no good at anything like that. Plus some of the other members reviews are pretty awesome.

GoodFellas

Directed by
Martin Scorsese

Starring
Robert De Niro
Joe Pesci
Ray Liotta
Lorraine Bracco


GoodFellas is without a doubt the greatest gangster movie ever made. Martin Scorsese delivered one of his most accomplished movie here, with its strong cast, great story, and fantastic dialogue. Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are magic together. There probably my favourite movie duo ever. Between this and Casino they are absolutely incredible, and they steal every bit of screen time there in. The whole cast is exceptional and all deliver some very fine performances.


American History X

Directed by
Tony Kaye

Starring
Edward Norton
Edward Furlong
Beverly D'Angelo
Stacy Keach


I've always had mixed feeling about American History X. I think the cast and performances are great. I also love how the movie looks, the whole black and white theme looks great. But I've always found the movie a little dark and quite disturbing. The movie has some really powerful scenes that really put the movie down in my opinion. It's a great movie, but ime always left with a nasty taste after I've watched it. ( if that makes any sense).



"""" Hulk Smashhhh."""
The Expendables

Directed by
Sylvester Stallone

Starring
Sylvester Stallone
Jason Statham
Jet Li
Dolph Lundgren


Let me just get straight to the point here -- The Expendables Sucks. It's a movie full of my favourite action movie stars, and yet it sucks. The movie has a terrible plot, bad acting, and a bad cast. Seriously, there all way to old to be doing movies like this now. Stallone should be making movies about queuing in the post office for his pension, not running around blowing stuff up, and getting his a** kicked. Action movies from the 80's and 90's are best left there.


Gangster Squad

Directed by
Ruben Fleischer

Starring
Ryan Gosling
Emma Stone
Sean Penn
Josh Brolin


Gangster Squad is one of the most overlooked movies of 2013. It received mostly negative reviews from critics and I honestly don't know why. I thought it was sharp, cool, and stylish. It had a great cast with some great performances from Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, and Sean Penn. Gangster Squad is a great looking movie, great sets, great costumes, the whole movie actually looks fantastic and it deserved a little more praise than it received.



"Hey Look it's Masterman"
Thanks Rodent. I just quoted someone else's review in the review section. From there I could see how everything worked.
Haha, don't be taking all the praise-- it was me that helped you out.
