i like the island but wouldn't call it a perfect movie... far from...

and for some reason it bombed critically and at the box office. i thought it was a very respectable attempt at a film of that genre.

Wow, I really didnt think that would be a movie you would like Uzique

Personally, I really liked it.  Not a 10/10, but an 8-9 at least.  Perfect 'popcorn movie'.

yeah it's a solid film, a decent take on the genre; decent performances from all the actors/actresses; decent directing, production and soundtrack. much worse movies have been made and found way more popularity/success at the box office. i didn't 'get' it... even the most banal bog-standard action movies have bigger takings and a wider audience than the island. a bit of an anomaly.

Ninja Assassin 7/10. Would have been better with less bloody scenes that made me want to laugh. Reminded me of Tarantino movies.

Year One 3/10. Funny at times, mostly just basic Jack Black crap.

No, I don't need an attitude adjustment. You just need to fuck off.

I remember the trailer being really quite funny. The film really isn't.

28 Weeks Later

Without a doubt the best zombie movie I have ever seen.. saw it in the cinema when it came out and watched it again last night.. just fantastic.

10/10.
HELL NO!!

That movie was so stupid and so far away from the gem that was the first one, I still can´t believe it when I think about it.
It was riddled with logic holes, even for a zombie movie. Stupid zombie dad was annoying.



Shutter Island - 6/10

It was well done the first half or so, you never quite knew what was real and what not, but they overdid it towards the end.

um no.  both movies were awesome and are my favorite zombie movies.  if my memory serves me correctly, i liked 28 weeks later a little more than 28 days later due to the Spoiler (highlight to read):

I got turned down by weeks almost in the beginning. The whole concept of a lockdown being thrwon outta the window by a bunch of kids who sneak by right under the soldiers noses? Yeah right.
A live, non-infected carrier is found and they leave her alone with the husband (who abandoned her to the zombies)? Without a SINGLE guard at least watching a monitor or something? Come on.

The whole movie felt like the director and writers had a handful of scenes they wanted to realise which needed to be tied together with the least effort possible.

Err, the kids were seen sneaking out, and got caught and taken back home, the dad had full access pass to every place in the building, not like he needed clearance for anywhere.

Yeah they got caught once, but didn´t they find the crazed infected wife while sneaking out successfully?
And despite having clearance, you can´t just keep him unattended with something that dangerous and highly contagious. In a quarantine zone they hoped to repopulate.
And what about the soldiers locking in the civvies in the basement? All of a sudden it turns out the dark backside of that room is just open? Really? The basement of the HQ of the friggin army? Having an open door no one saw before?

I don´t wanna dissect the movie, 'cause you can do that with any movie and it falls apart, but they were so blatantly stupid that even though years passed since I last saw it they stuck in my head.
Paired with the bigger scale, the whole  movie seemed so "hollywoodized" and lost most of the good parts its predecessor had.

What about the degeneration of the non-infected? The whole feel of hopelessness and loneliness. The dilemma of having to look out for zombies and fellow humans, turning barbaric?
All that was put aside for more boom and brains being blown away.

Hot Tub Time Machine - 7/10
I was born '84, so I´m a bit young to go all nostalgia, but I really liked the concept despite a foreseable story. And how awesome was Chevy Chase, lol?

Conan the Barbarian - 8/10
Two hours of barbary goodness. Few words, lots of chopped off heads and more titties.
Can´t shake the feeling that having read the books might help with the plot jumping though...
