The lights are on
Have you ever seen that one movie with that dude in it? Chances are someone here has, and they want to talk to you about it. Grab some popcorn and discuss all things relating to the silver screen.
This is a pretty simple thread I started. All I'll do is just talk about movies I've recently see. Of course one at a time, it could be theaters seeing or just at home. Just say what you've seen. I know I will. Hope you all see good movies. So I'll start it off.
Today I saw Fruitvale Station. It is the story of the ruthless killing of Oscar Grant. It's an emotional tale that will touch the heart, and gives you to be happy with what all you have a life itself. Michael B. Jordan gives a towering performance as Oscar Grant. I think he needed a Oscar nomination. The movie is kind of short by only 85 minutes, but that doesn't matter at all. This is a movie that was masterfully made and masterfully performed. I'm very happy I saw this today, and also upset this movie had no love from the Academy. Not one bit. BULL! This is one of the best films of the year. Truly a remarkable film, and an experience we should all see. I enjoyed it, and will never forget.
I have yet to see Fruitvale Station. I did read an article in reference to the situation. I agree that the film SHOULD have gotten an Academy nod. Also, I saw The Last Samurai. An excellent film especially the last hour; its what's not been said that really makes the impact in the movie alongside that powerful film score.

Agreed. Isn't that a remake of an older film that goes by the same name? I heard those are supposed to be good.
Also, I forgot to give my score of Fruitvale Station. My scoring of movies is different from how I score Videogames. A 8 from a movie could be like a 9-9.5 in a videogame score. So here we go:
Overall opinion: Fruitvale Station a emotional story celebrating life, and showing impact of death. With a triumphant break out performance by Michael B. Jordan, this is one of the best movies of the year.
Juanolo's movie score: 9.0 out of 10
Also if you ever question how I score on movie, I score by standards of metacritic. You all score as you please.
