    Yea I found it just OK and I realised while watching it that they were sort of aping Zero Dark Thirty, female lead in a World of men, involved in a dangerous situation. One was terrorism, the other drug cartels. I was getting the feeling that this movie would not have been greenlight without ZDT's success. The only thing I liked was the ending where we saw the unique relationship between Del Toro and Blunt's character.

    Watched The Lazarus Effect on Netflix. I went into it with fairly low expectations, but it had the rather unusual effect of both being better than I expected while still being a disappointment.

    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Self/Less.

    Rogue Nation was just a great movie. As far as Self/Less is concerned...Tarsem sure can put together a gorgeous looking movie. I wonder if he would be better of being a DP than a director.

    I watched Pan. First half was quite good - liked Levi Miller as Peter and Hugh Jackman chews scenery. Second half in Neverland is by the numbers and Hook and Tiger Lily's roles are IMO under-developed. 3 out of 5 stars.

    Also watched Anchorman 2 at home. Silly fun that I thoroughly enjoyed. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig and James marsden and so many more - great cast indeed. 3.5 out of 5

    How much like Flatliners is this? Because it looks like some remake of Flatliners, and Flatliners was pretty bad.

    I liked this movie so much. It popped up on Netflix I think not long after it came out.

    Haven't seen Flatliners in ages, so I can't make a specific comparison. It's the same basic story: scientists trying to conquer death and having it blow up in their faces. But the set up, tone, and execution are different. Lazarus starts to veer off in a very different direction after the big resurrection scene, but ends up devolving into stock horror cliches.

    Birdman- 3/5 stars. Uneven storytelling and a scattered plot, but strong performances from Keaton and Stone made it worth-while to me. The last 20 minutes (and especially the ending) were some of the best moments on-screen that I saw in 2014.

    Straight Outta Compton 3.5/5
    .5 for the fanboy moments if you're into 90s hip hop.
    as a movie on it's own, it's not well done
    What we used to call life has very little worth these days. Welcome to the very edge.

    Watched Moonrise Kingdom, which was really good. Made me realize two things: one, I really want to see Wes Anderson do some Lord of the Rings/Excalibur medieval fantasy type thing where characters are just wandering in forest going on some quest...because god damn can Wes Anderson shot the shit out of people walking in a forest; and the other thing, I really want to see him do a horror film. That SNL The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders short kind of feels lazy when Moonrise Kingdom actually had some good horror imagery they didn't take for it.

    The other thing I watched was called Hungry Hearts, and I really liked this movie, probably more than Moonrise. We follow Kylo Reno Stimpy and his wife from when they first meet, (in a bathroom after our hero has taken a gnarly shit) through what becomes their very rocky marriage. I really love the way this movie was done, there are times the character perspectives will shift, and good people are being shown like they're villains in a horror film...oh, I just really like just about everything about how this movie was done.
