Just watched faster. Not really a Rock fan but he was the shit in this movie. Great story, well paced, good action. 8/10 for an action movie. I would watch it again.
houston said:The Raid is pretty good. I reviewed it in my Foreign Movie thread.
I watched Resident Evil - Retribution. It was sort of entertaining but to cheesy for me. I guess you'll like it if you're into the video game. Kind of how I like the Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter flicks Michelle Rodriguez looked juicy wearing heels and tight jeans. I bet she has a tight, dyke pussy.
1Minute said:Awesome movies:
Layer Cake: Daniel Craig is a coke trafficker who gets in a deal with some mdma stolen from Serbian war criminals and the aftermath between that.
Catch Me If You Can: Natural con artist and his true story about being a thief who beat the FBI for almost a decade. True Story
Felon: A family man who goes past the legal limits of defending his castle. Finds himself in the deepest end of the harshest prison.
Gladiator: Politics throw a Roman general from fighting countries into the frying pan of hand to hand combat and the journey out.
In Bruges: Colin Ferrel is a hitman who on his first job, shoots through his target and kills a 6 yr old kid. He hides with his partner in Bruges waiting for the heat to die down.
Lucky Number Slevin: Josh Hartnett is a man who's luck ran out, staying in a friend's apartment when 2 different criminal families decide that his friend (now him) owes about $100,000.
Man on Fire: Denzel is a former mercenary whose last protectee showed him that life was worth living. Big mistake.
Pulp Fiction: Classic. Hard to describe, but I really recommend it.
Rise of the Foot Soldier: The movie starts with 3 murders of the most dangerous drug dealers in Essex, UK. First quote: "But before the murders, beatings, torture and ecstasy, there was football" The story of a young badass into a serious weight in the work-for-hire very shady industry. True story
Snatch: A giant diamond "The size uf ya fist" goes missing. The movie shows everyone involved and their involvement.
Street Thief: A commercial burglar in Chicago (If you ain't heard by now, I'm talking about Chi-town) gives an inside view to his life. Until shit goes bad.
Thank You for Smoking: Lobbyist for tobacco shows how he kicks ass.
The Business: International Playboy 101: traffic hashish from Morocco to Spain. Then don't get killed by your asshole partners.
The Grey: Liam Neison is a sniper for wolves on oil rigs (Goddamn manliest job ever) whose plane back to civilization crashes and he emerges as the leader of men trying to survive. GREAT movie about the essence of masculinity and the sacrifices involved.
The Town: Ben Affleck robs armored trucks w/ the new Bourne. You wanna know about loyalty? This is your movie.
Ben: "I need your help, you can never ask me about this again, and we're going to hurt some people"
New Bourne guy: "Who's car we gonna take?"
Traffick: The daughter of a federal judge gets into heroin. The wife of a coke trafficker starts where he left off. A guy selling quarter tons of coke gets busted. The dynamics between them shows the difficulty between legalization of drugs vs not.
Training Day: Denzel and some white guy have the shittiest day ever. Rookie to having a shotgun in his mouth in 24 hrs.
Alpha Dog: Guy from that hiking in Alaska movie kidnaps a kid over a $1200 debt. Justin Timberlake takes care of him. Basically, a guide on how you can constantly be digging yourself deeper. True story. Top 10 FBI most wanted.
American History X: Ed Norton and his younger brother experience the neo-Nazi deal and what life can really look like when you cut out the bullshit.
Brotherhood: Frat initiation is to rob a convience store. A brother around the corner gives you money and you pretend you robbed it. 1 time, they fuck up the location and one actually robs a store. This ends up in a hostage in the basement "where you can't hear screaming". 1 bad decision leads to another.
Crazy Stupid Love: Ryan Gosling turns Steve Carell from fuckin loser to man. Terrible story and most parts, but Gosling is my goal for who to be: rich, well dressed, interesting. Great rolemodel in my book.
Drive: Getaway driver sees the clean life in a cute neighbor (but why the fuck she has short hair?)
The American: Clooney is an assassin hiding out in rural Italy who falls in love with a whore. Crystallized why I didn't get into covert operations.
The Guard: A cop in rural England takes LSD in the opening scene. He ends up finding a huge coke deal going down with Basher from Oceans 11 and they plan to take them down.
Shawshank Redemption: An innocent man makes his way through prison. Classic
The Next Three Days: Russell Crowe plans a prison break getting his wrongly accused wife (that "Got a big trunk gonna put a bike in it blonde bitch" from 40 yr virgin)
Thomas Crowne Affair: Late 90's James Bond is a Billionaire who does heists for fun. Dope for lifestyle.
Unstoppable: A train that can't stop. Sounded shitty but I remember liking it.
V for Vendetta: Terrorist tries to fix his country. At the end, you'll put your hand in the air.
These are my picks. Let me know if you agree or not or got any recommendations.

Vicious said:One of the best Movies of last year (possibly ever) about brotherhood is End of Watch. While the backdrop might be beat cops at work in the worst area of LA the real theme of the movie is the friendship between the main characters. Guys on the forum will also love the talk the guys have about marriage and girls.
