Watch This! Not That… #4

23 Dec

WATCH THIS!:

1. 127 HoursIMDb, trailer

Awesome based on a true story movie of an outdoor adventurer who gets his arm stuck under a boulder. Danny Boyle did an excellent job directing this film and I’m glad he stuck to his creative indie style. James Franco was perfect the role too. If you’ve got a weak stomach, prepare yourself for the “nerve cutting” scene!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Ride the Great DivideIMDb, trailer

This is a really cool documentary about three people’s experiences while they try to finish and conquer the world’s toughest cross-country mountain bike race alone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Kray (aka The Edge)IMDb, trailer

It’s very rare I get the chance to watch Russian films, but I really did enjoy this one.  If you like a good action-drama with steam engine trains and a bit of history in it, this is the movie for you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT THAT…

1. Tron: LegacyIMDb, trailer

I definitely went in with too high of expectations.  First off, only some parts of the movie was 3D (what a waste).  Sure, the movie had some well-respected actors like Jeff Bridges and Michael Sheen, but there’s just no saving the cheesy dialogues and horrible plot.  Also, don’t expect to see a lot of fighting scenes if that’s your thing…

2. Eat Pray LoveIMDb, trailer

I think this movie was hyped up a TADDDD too much — was not good at all.  The soundtrack didn’t do much for me either.

I just got through watching this tonight at S. Lamar Alamo Drafthouse and it was excellent!  It was completely sold out so I was really happy I bought tickets ahead of time online.  This documentary ( I LOVE LOVE docs btw) follows a guy who decides to visit a Facebook “crush” he’s never met. RATING: 4/5
