Just got back from watching Her.
I really liked it. It was definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a while.

Finally got around to watching The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Yeah I mean it's pretty awesome. Everything you'd ever want out of a Western movie. The acting was great, and some of the writing was just awesome. Great ending, and yeah, all around great movie.

I (re)watched Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind the other day. It's one of my favorite movies.

The Lego Movie.

It has been a long, long time since I've laughed as consistently as I did through that movie. Just gag after gag after gag landing the mark. The score and general music was really cool and the animation was AMAZING. I was just smiling throughout the entire movie pretty much.

The only real point against it is that the characters were built kind of meh, but at the same time a large part of that was because it's supposed to be like the kind of characters and backstory kind of a stuff a kid would come up with so perhaps that's not valid...? *shrug*

It was interesting because when we came out of the theater my friend mentioned liking Wreck-It Ralph more and I came to the conclusion personally that The Lego Movie had better comedy (Since it focused almost entirely on that) whereas Wreck-It Ralph had better characters and general writing.

I wouldn't like to agree with Minor Mare Man but it was pretty good, yeah. One of the Batman jokes in particular was the hardest I've ever laughed in the cinema (but then I've never been to the cinema very much, so maybe it doesn't mean anything).

Were the 3D effects any good? I saw it in 2D because I can't be arsed with the glasses.

I'm not a fan of 3D in the slightest so I saw it in 2D.

The Mask of Zorro, which was on television about a month or so ago. Pretty good action movie.

The Secret of Kells.

Absolutely AMAZING animation, pretty neat sound work too but DAMN. THAT STORY.

The story's just so much like, why? You needed a whole movie for... this?

Aaaaaaa I'm so conflicted since it really is a beautiful movie. Reminds me of Avatar honestly.

I also liked how it kind of had a very real feel to the characters and their conversations, kind of a Miyazaki-esque line of thinking where nothing is rushed and the conversations are really pleasant.

I am so very miffed that the plot doesn't hold up to how beautiful the animation is.

Truck Turner. It was pretty great. Isaac Hayes' onscreen badassery is matched only by his excellent soundtrack. It also features a memorable and jarringly edgy and performance by Nichelle Nichols. Give it a watch!

Just got back from Non-Stop. I enjoyed it but I can't say the same for my friends. I dunno. I didn't think it was amazing, but I like how it built some suspense instead of *pew pew explosions* all the time. They found it kinda of dull, but to each their own.

It was certainly better than Pompeii (which isn't saying much).

so it turns out the Lego Movie is actually pretty good! even as being advertised and written for children, i genuinely enjoyed it and got a few good laughs out of it, and the animation is pretty impressive.
the thing between the main protagonist and the typical female love interest is pretty grating tho since it's really boring and predictable and dumb (i can't complain too much i guess, though), but i would otherwise recommend it!

This a million times.

It is so much a grating thing in general when studios feel EVERY story has to have a love story for whatever reason now, no matter how well done it is or if the movie even friggin' needs it.
Wildstyle is pretty cool in the first few minutes and then once Batman comes in it's like "Are you... are you really doing thi- Oh. Oh god. You are really doing this."

I saw 'Non-Stop' the Liam Neeson movie yesterday.
I liked it. I'd probably watch it again sometime.
I felt everything kind of just fell into place at the end. Like, a bit too conveniently. I felt that the trailer showed too much too and ruined some of the suspense.

I watched Taken last night with him. Also The Inedibles but he's not in that as far as I know.

I saw Fistful of Dollars, but it wasn't nearly as good as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
God, good, bad, ugly is so great.

I haven't seen The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly yet. I have seen A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars more. The latter is easily the better of the two.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is soon on my watchlist though. I swear!

When you see it you should tell me how it compares to For A Few Dollars More so I know whether to watch it.

After about a month, I finally got around to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Totally worth it.

And to answer your question (if you're still interested), I would say you should see For A Few Dollars More. It's definitely a good step up from A Fistful of Dollars and is closer to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in terms of quality and plot. Lee Van Cleef is still in it. The role is different (which confused me at first), but he and Clint Eastwood have really good chemistry and there are some tense moments that'll grab your attention.

Essentially, I probably wouldn't rewatch A Fistful of Dollars, but I'll probably rewatch For A Few Dollars More, even after seeing The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I went in with the right expectations and I came out a happy camper with Winter Soldier.

Long as you go in expecting the usual/a ton of action sequences you're good.

If you're expecting them to get creative somehow you're at the wrong movie.

Captain America definitely surprised me. I went with my friends because I just wanted to hang out, but it was thoroughly entertaining. Yeah, there were some dumb moments, but I tend to be more forgiving when the rest of the movie is pretty good.
