I tried to give your 'Will this list work?' a good rating but guess what? It didn't work! Amen to what you said though, I'm starting to think making all my lists was just a sad old fart wasting his time :(
I almost survived. So Maleficent is a badass villain, and Angelina Jolie seems the perfect fit, with great costume and make up - which pretty much makes the whole movie. I feel like It would have been better to go all out on this, i mean she's a villain, she's freaking crazy, why not let her go bat shit insane? Screw the age rating....as for the rest of it, it was okay, average fair.
I'm pretty disappointed, i thought "Machete" was fun, "Machete Kills" is just kind of...uhhh. I feel that the whole movie played on the wrong things. There wasn't at all any great visual style to make it any better. It's reasonable as in - it has enough action to get by and some pretty gory parts. Machete is a tired character already, i can't see anything more he can offer. If anything Michelle Rodriguez's character is more happening, with the taco truck etc.
The Punk Singer is everything I wanted it to be. After leaving the screening, i felt inspired and i wanted to start a band and make art and do all those things that i'm too goddamn shy to do, and then i went to sleep and woke up. I admit, i've never listened much to Bikini Kill, not that i've tried, so this was not only interesting from the point of view of this person that i did not know much about and how they rallied some sort of movement, it was that the music is incredible to hear too. Go see it!
I'm pretty sure my first thought was "they wasted a pretty good title on an average horror movie". For what its worth, i enjoyed it, thought the little kid actors were pretty good considering the weird crazy parents stuff that'd freak any ten year old out (so if you're 10, you're the perfect audience for this). It's definitely interesting in the sense that it's broken the whole "the house isn't haunted, it's you" shtick of late. The ending is pretty much a giant let down, but is that not the fate of most horrors? What did I think, it was all going to be happy? No, but i didn't think it was going to be so simple. The mirror moves on. It was okay! I don't think horrors really do anything for me anymore, so it seems. What did i want? Not sure.
