Links 1 through 10 of 17 by Clint JCL tagged 2011

4/5 stars from both of us.

7.6/10 from Clint (same as IMDB in general!)

8/10 from Carolyn.

Ultimately I was kind of disappointed with this one, given all the hype.

That doesn't mean I didn't like it. I just felt that the concept held more promise than the execution gave. This is usually true in many movies with unique concepts, but it hurt this for me... More than usual. There wasn't nearly enough time spent on all the *other* monsters.

It felt rushed. It was too short. This story would have been better if it was fleshed out more: 2.5 hours instead of 1.5 hours. But oh, horror movies always have to be 1.5 hours!

This could have been a deeper story, with more epicness. Still a good movie. Still worth seeing. But I rank this as not as good as Joss Whedon's average work.

The controlled environment definitely reminded me of The Hunger Games -- but The Hunger Games had a much better societal commentary.

This seemed to start out too slow, then finish up too fast.

Pacing.

Slightly confusing, but what the headline really means is "there are many instances where police used more bullets against 1 person than Germany used in an entire year against all criminals in the country".

Now, if you extrapolate out the fact that the U.S. population is almost 4 times that of Germany's, the real number to compare is not 85 shots, but about 340 shots.

Contrast to America, where *to stop a reckless driver* last year, police fired over 110 shots, including shooting 7 innocent bystanders. We routinely shoot unarmed people 40-90 times.

Yeah.... It's not just our larger population at work. When our police use more bullets in a single incident than a country previously associated with fascism does all year -- it gives one major pause at how fucked up and broken our system is, and how piss-poor our over-militarized, trigger-happy police operate. 

Not making assumptions here. I've worked them them, eaten lunch with them, and heard them talk about how they want someone to cause them to have a chance to shoot them. It's sickening.

4/5 stars, 7/10.
Native ratings: 3.4/5 stars (Netflix's guess for us=3.9), 6.3/10 IMDB.

We definitely had to read the wikipedia summaries of the last 3 movies, because it has been soooo long since the first 3 Scream movies came out. Plus, the 2nd and 3rd ones weren't as good.

Fortunately, Scream 4 seems to be continuing the trend of resurrecting old horror franchises with a sequel better than the last few sequels.

Final Destination 5 was better than FD3, 4, and maybe 2. And Scream 4 is better than S3

Good list.... Outlaw vern's favorite movies in 2011. This guy writes reviews that really speak the me, he thinks the same things I think more often than most. Not that I agree with his choices, or his opinion of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. But it's a  good list.
