Safe House 8/10
good movie lots of action
-Really enjoyed this one. I even felt the first half where the story was pretty much focused on the sort of mundane aspect of village life was better than the "action heavy" third act.
-Funny, but not Ferrell's best. The supporting cast had the best lines, especially during the poker game scene.
Tinker Taylor Solider Spy
-Granted i'm a huge sucker for period-piece spy thrillers, but holy fuck this movie was good. Gary Oldman in particular was such a boss.

I just watched Alien again. I love that movie. Even though I love Ridley Scott, I think I like James Cameron's Aliens even better. Both are great movies.
Aliens = 10/10
Alien = 10/10
Those are two of my favorite movies. I also watched Braveheart for the first time a week ago (I know, it's a shame to admit that I've seen movies like Thor, but I just watched Braveheart for the first time). I'd also give that one a pretty good score. At least a 9/10, maybe higher.
Oh yeah a month ago I watched The Mist. I loved and hated the end. But mm=ost of the movie was just too cheesy in general. I'd give it a 5/10 but it was actually worth watching.

I've got to admit I was hesitant going into it. I wasn't sure if I could understand what, apart from being a film geek and geeking out, could make anyone in this day and age want to see a mostly silent b&w film. But I decently enjoyed it. I was really glad that the film wasn't out to bash modern cinema and kiss the collective ass of silent film- in fact, it nearly does the opposite. The writer/director clearly has affection for both, and in a couple of scenes he cleverly illustrates some of silent film's shortcomings.
The only points I deduct are for the story. While it was straightforward and well-paced, and the characters were very well-acted- I'm not sure I bought it. I didn't think the protagonist was as sympathetic as he was intended to be, for reasons that are difficult to describe without giving anything away. This was a very good film that would have been better 30-40 years ago, when it could have been made by a director who actually remembered what the transition into "talkies" was like. But this is the kind of movie that tells a story way bigger than the ones its characters are acting out.

Tron: Legacy 9/10
Big improvement with the story line. Effects were what you would expect and then some, Music was awesome (love Daft Punk) and overall I enjoyed the experience. This was also my first time seeing this one as well.
I really liked Tron Legacy. The story was sort of bland, but i was too distracted by the fantastic art direction and soundtrack to care.
The Inbetweeners Movie
-This was really fucking funny. Although a sequel would be horribly pointless, i really hope there's one, i just love the characters so much.
-It was prtty good; probably the best of the "white collar" type movies that have came out post-2008. Paul Bettney was especially solid, dude should get bigger roles.
