    Cry for what? I always expect happy endings, but that twist of the prince being a bad guy was lame as f*ck.

    I watched Chef. That was a cool story about finding happiness in your midlife crisis. It made me hungry too.

    There are some amazing lines in it. Things you'll wish you could quote but no one else saw it.

    Chef was great. Really so much better than I expected.

    I went in with no expectations. My friend said it was worth the Redbox. He didn't lie. A little slow at the start but really good once it started moving.

    I really don't think it's as good as people say it is either. Probably my 3rd or 4th favorite Nolan film.

    If we are going to talk overrated then that would have to go to The Dark Knight. As much as I loved that movie I know it wouldn't be held on such high regard if it wasn't for Heath Ledger's unfortunate tragedy.

    Also as Hipster as this might sound I loved Memento before it was cool :p No really. I remember watching it back in 2001 and being blown away. Once it hit DVD I introduced it to so many people who never knew of its existence. I swear nobody had heard of that freakin movie. Then sometime later, maybe around the time Batman Begins came out, it went from cult classic to this phenomenon. But I still love it to this day since it is unlike any other film I can think of.

    And if I really was going to pull a hipster move I'd say Following is my favorite, but I haven't seen that one lol.

    I didn't see Longo mentioned this and didn't see anything about this movie being mentioned. So, I went and saw Interstellar instead.

    Interstellar was alright, but it didn't impress me. I'll post why in Wicked's thread.

    I still haven't seen that one, but I can say yes with certainty.

    Listen to the man!!!

    I am soooo glad I saw Birdman over Dumb and Dumber To. The reviews for Dumb and Dumber are horrendous so I decided on this instead. I made the right call.

    What makes this movie absolutely brilliant is its cinematography. It was done by the same dude who did Gravity, which was impressive for its long takes. This movie however feels like it is all done in one complete shot. It isn't, obviously, but it does a damn good job of immersing you into this film by feeling like one continuous long take.

    If cinematography isn't your bag, baby, then you'll be sure to enjoy the quirky story and off the wall performance from Michael Keaton. As well as Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galafa...na...kis? How the hell do you spell that?

    Look, it's a good freaking movie and better than The Grand Budapest Hotel. And I loved The Grand Budapest Hotel.

    You do realize that Roger Ebert gave the orignal Dumb and Dumber 2 stars...

    I don't always agree with the critics. I think Ebert hated Kick Ass as well. I still plan to see Dumber and Dumber To but I'm glad I saw Birdman.

    Interstellar

    It's basically 2001 with modern sentiments rather than 70's sentiments. Still good, though.
    They should've shaved some time off the Matt Damon part and added it to the ending.

    Just finished The Lego Movie. It was very cute. Not a manly thing to say, but it was. Great, funny film.

    Mockingjay Part 1. I really liked it, but as with all part 1s of movies, it obviously didn't tell the whole story.

    I watched the 3 Rambo movies. Yes all 3 of them.

    Funny to see how Sly has grown a bunch in every movie. In 3 he is a goddamn Greek god chiseled from marble. Classics.

    My testosterone levels went trough the roof.

    Why not watch all 4? :(

    Rambo was probably the 2nd best of the series after First Blood.
