Last night I watched The Wolfman, the one from 2010 with Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving, etc. Visually it was pretty cool, I love movies who've mastered that dark, gothic style, especially in a 1890's England, but it wasn't that amazing. I'd rather watch it on DVD without interruptions or edits. It was pretty good though, maybe a 6 or 7 out of 10.
I don't really watch movies, but the last movie I watched was August Rush (I think that was the title?). I watched it because, well, our school forced us too. I didn't really understand it well, but I think it's about a boy with gifted conducting skills whose parents were separated from him, and they were also separated from each other, I guess. It would have been good if I understood it, since the plot seems interesting. The last movie I watched from home was Tangled, but that's not really the question.
I just watched Princess Mononoke for the first time tonight. It was really beautiful and a joy to watch.
It reminds me I need to try and watch more Studio Ghibli films. The film that introduced me to Studio Ghibli was Spirited Away. (Then after that I watched Kiki's Delivery Service and The Cat Returns....so Princess Mononoke is my fourth studio ghibli film)
I think I'll check out My Neighbour Totoro next.

Send me a pm if you add me.
The last movie I saw was "The Call" in theaters. I'd say it's a decent movie (very suspenseful) but the end really does not fit the entire movie. The whole movie you'll be hanging on to your seat, but the end just doesn't make sense, at least it didn't for me.
It's also kinda short and predictable. I'd say it's worth a watch when it comes out on DVD, but don't spend $8.00+ on it to go see it in theaters.
I saw Stand By Me for the first time today. God, that movie isn't about finding a dead body. It isn't about finding a dead body at all. It was a pretty great movie though, and it's strange seeing all these actors I know as adults when they were kids. The ending was a bit of a bummer, but it's one of those movies that leaves you with so much to think about.
I watched The Lorax yesterday- the 2012 movie, apparently there's another one? It was actually a lot better than I was expecting. Very funny while not being too over-the-top, a lot of little aside jokes and parental [older kid] bonuses. And still thought-provoking with a very blatant message, of course.
I'm not a person that really watches movies, but the last one I saw was Ice Age 4 Continental Drift. I've been a big fan of the Ice Age movies, and this one was a really great movie. Wonder what ideas they might have in the next one, if they do make another one.
I just watched "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold," which is a documentary by Morgan Spurlock about advertising and product placement in media, which was funded entirely off of advertising and product placement money. I'm not much of a documentary guy, but the premise of the movie itself got me intrigued, and I've always been interested in marketing campaigns.
Overall it's a pretty informative documentary, and is definitely worth a watch if you're interesting in that kind of stuff.
I just watched 'A good day to die hard' today, wasn't bad, but it wasn't too good either, John Mcclane is getting old! ;P ... They should have ended it on Die hard: with a vengeance, that was the most entertaining one in my opinion.
Number 4 I can't remember well, but 5 (A good day to die hard) didn't have much of a storyline and the plot was predictable, the action however was great (as they should be with all action films). 3 stars I'd rate it.
The live action Rurouni Kenshin(aka Samurai X). Well, it's pretty great and fans of the anime should watch it. I did not notice a single CG moment in the entire movie and how they recreate Kenshin's superhuman speed and fluid fighting style with just wires and camera work is amazing.
I finished reading Dracula by Bram Stoker so I thought it would be interesting to see how good is Bram Stoker's Dracula directed by Mr. Coppola. I loved the atmosphere in the film, I really enjoyed looking at it. Good characters, they all are known and can be seen in recent films such as Matrix (Keanu Reeves), Black Swan (Winona Ryder) or even Batman (Gary Oldman). Aside from that, in my opinion, they did a very bad film adaptation. They turned the most important part of the story into something kind of the opposite -.-
