Warrior - 8.8/10. Great performances all around and a good story.Homer Simpson: "I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman."
The Killers (1964)
The remake of the 1946 classic film noir, this time with Lee Marvin and Clu Gulager and John Cassavetes and Angie Dickinson and Ronald Reagan (in his only bad guy role).
Originally a made for TV movie (the very first one), it was deemed too violent and released to the movie theaters.
This film contains the kind of sadism and nastiness and grittiness and violence only director Don Siegel (Dirty Harry, Invasion of the Body Snatcher, the Beguiled, Coogan;s Bluff, Madigan, Charlie Warrick and Telefon)) could deliver.
It's been said that Quentin Tarantino based the characters of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction on Lee Marvin and Clu Gulager from this film.

Casino Royale 4.5.5
Quantum of Solace 3.85/5
The Grey (2012)
a deep deep movie - very well made
Red Tails (2012)
I am sure Lucas had good intentions when he took on this project but
the special effects are good and that's about all there is to this film - the rest is just a recycle of every cliche and plot device and paper thin characters from every war movie we've ever seen from the dawn of celluloid til today
Lucas said this is his Swan Song to the movie business - I guess he doesn't want remembered for what he has accomplished but for what was his final film - a big flop
A Walk in the Sun (1945)
one of the best war films ever made and it's also on my personal list of the Top 20 Best War Films of all times, along with other epic classic war films such as:
(in no particular order)
Full Metal Jacket, Gallipoli, A Bridge Too Far, The Longest Day, Apocalypse Now, The Battle of Britain, Where Eagles Dare, Das Boot, The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape, The Bridge On The River Kwai, Paths Of Glory, Platoon, Lawrence Of Arabia, Cross Of Iron, Der Untergang, Idi I Smotri (Come And See), Stalingrad, All Quiet On The Western Front, etc etc

I was fortunate enough to see this when it came to theaters here but it was only in town for one week. I went back the next week hoping to see it again and it was gone.

Watched Take Shelter last night.. Its an amazing movie..
Tower Heist (2011)
Okay, I am aware that when you watcb a movie, you need to have a willing suspension of disbelief but in this particular movie, you need to leave your brain and logic at the door.

Ties in with the TV series (Firefly) without needing prior knowledge of the series.
The Package (1989)
a very under-rated little known cold war thriller from the 80s with a great cast: Hackman, Cassidy, Tommy Lee, Grier, Franz.
If you'd never seen this, you should!
