4 Recent Films: The Lazy Version

Prometheus (2012) - I wasn't blown away but I did enjoy it. Like many have pointed out there are some iffy plot points and I hated the comic relief of the scientists being so stupid in the cave. I think I like it a lot better a few weeks after seeing it. 4/5

Snow White and the Huntsmen (2012) - I left after 45 minutes. I didn't get it. I didn't think it was cool. Can't really rate it because I just left. Good thing I didn't pay to see it specifically.

Savages (2012)- Pretty fucking epic. Not mind blowing and probably not a classic long term, but a pretty fun and sexy and violent flick. Definitely worth the money for a real screening with food and drinks on a big screen. Have some issues with the female roles in the film but I'm not going to nit pick this one. 4.5/5

Moonrise Kingdom (2012) - I want to pull my hair out. I am a big Wes Anderson fan and love his style of movie making. I really liked the first 2/3 of this one but thought the final 1/3 was a real let down. The two young leads were really good, but the entire harvey keitel plot line was stupid, plain and simple. The entire movie from the moment of the lightning strike is pretty lame. I am disappoint. 3/5
