Finally finished the entire Breaking Bad season yesterday and now can conclusively say that was the single most amazing piece of TV drama i have ever watched in my life. I rating it that highly.

The season 4 finale was simply breathtaking to the point where a day later i still thinking about the scene that play off there. There are entire sites, blogs and youtube videos dedicated to discussing the serious heights that play off there.

Cannot wait for season 5. Apparently it will be the final season, 16 episodes long.

**Slight Spoiler Alert!!**
Insidious was arrite... the concept of having to go down into purgatory was kinda creepy, but I was waiting fuh de big beast tuh show and in de end was more cheap scare tactics, smoke and mirror bullshit dan anything else.


Don't Be Afraid of the Dark... not sure if I discuss it/it was discussed here already, but I saw these two around the same time so they tend to go hand in hand in my mind.  It was decent... an interesting take on the tooth fairy and some genuinely painful scenes, lol

Have a bag full of movies for alyuh as I haven't posted in awhile. i'll give a star for level of interest. 1 being lowest and 5 highest.

Sniper Reloaded - Okay for the hour. Decent to pass some dead time(doh waste your money on buying this) 2.9 Stars

Swat: Fire Flight - Same as above 3.0 Stars

Eagle - good flick for the gladiator type viewer.3.5 Stars

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon - Some level of enetertainment made no sense to the interlectually minded. I was neither here nor there on this one. I think that should be the end of any thought of another Transformer movie. It ran its course 2.8 Stars

X-Men: First Class - I enjoyed seeing this and all the scenarios and making of the different characters of Magneto and Xavier. 3.5 Stars

Lincoln's Lawyer -  Good Directing. 3.5 Stars

Captain America - Other than the visuals(due to Bluray quality) and a little humour here and there I did not really see anything to hype about. Still decent though. 3.0 Stars

The Kings Speech - I enjoyed this even though it was a little slow. Good movie altogether. 3.5 Stars

Black Swan - A little dull but still wasn't bad. 3.0 Stars

Quarantine 2: Terminal - 3.0 Stars

Green Lantern - Nothing much in there to say other than the picture quality did look good(Due to Bluray). Another Avenger prlude. 3.2 Stars

Contagion - Not bad. For those germ Phobics, I would suggest do not watch. Make you think about all those public doors ways that you have to touch when moving around. 3.5 Stars

Hangover 2 - Got a few laughs in this one but was really an unnecessary sequel. Some of the scenes were like dejaveau because they happened in the first Hangover. Still entertaining though. 3.5 Stars

Warrior - One of these movies where you just root for the lead character no matter how wrong he seem to get things. Entertainment from start to end. 4.5 Stars

Real Steal - Loved this. Total entertainment and good story that will totally have you wanting more. 5 Stars

Black Belt - This was my sleeper movie Because I rented this with some apprehension, boy was i wrong. The characters in this was two ah de baddest men nothing beating them. Lacked a bit as the fight scenes was good but they just left you saying I could see a bit more licks. ;D  4 Stars

IP Man 2 - for anyone who've seen the fist IP Man this is as good or even better. Real licks pass in this. Totally entertaining from  start to end and ontop my list of best movies of all time. 5 Stars

Cowboys vs Aliens - for some people they didn't enjoy this but I thought it was well done as I enjoyed this alot. Sound effects were fantastic, loved it. 4 stars

Super 8 : This supposedly was a kids movie untill I began hearing profanity on two or three instances. The kids were excited to see this but were prevented in the end(my Wife and I usually watch a movie first to make sure the content is suitable for the children). I didn't really enjoy it much but loved the Train wreck as my sound system went into full turbulence mode for this. I think it may be worth a watch for some. I give it a 3.7 for story line and the sound effects

lol. Really I didn't enjoy them that much All three were duds to me. But I think some will enjoy them. Anything in the 2.8 - 3.8 is up in the air according to who sees it. If they in those areas they're average.

BOSS flick.

Don't really watch anything on TV, but football. However i love Westerns so I have recently been following
Hell on Wheels a good Western series and also the motorcycle version of a Western, Sons of Anarchy.

PS: Watched 13 Assassins on a flight recently, for those who love  kick up, entertaining,

I'm a freak for Westerns. I didn't know this one existed as I live abroad. Going to check it out today.

Took in Safe House with Denzel Washington last week...

Decent CIA thriller with some good action throughout. Not really a big fan of the lead actor Ryan Reynolds, especially for a serious kinda flick like this but Denzil was Denzil.

I find alot of the fight scenes was borrowed straight out of Bourne Identity in terms of the fighting styles, sequences and sound effects.

Good flick though.

Yeah, went and take it in about a month ago.

I real enjoy it. I mean it was understandably low budget, and they were some slow parts in between where you could see they was stretching it to make up the hour. But all in all it had some hilarious moments in it that had the cinema going.

If they could tighten up the production a lil bit and focus more on the hilarious exchanges that the original clips are famous for, i seriously believe he could have an all time great local production on his hands.

Saw the creator Roger Alexis in the mall last week and told him he need to do a Pastor Stewart movie... Seriously, Santana good but I could watch a whole hour of Pastor Stewart.. He is a classic.

VB

stepping into the ring with a good boxer is like playing tag with a human jackhammer. they can hit harder than a typical wing chun stylist, have greater punching accuracy, more stamina, and can take a punch a lot better. even the slight difference in stance and style between a boxer and kickboxer would give advantage to a boxer, depending on rules. all things being equal a decent muay thai fighter would beat most stand up martial artists, boxers or kickboxers of similar calibre in a standard ring under continuous action. in a bigger space under point style rules or under no rules a martial artist has an edge IMO due to cleaner technique and speed.

The Walking Dead.

I must say I thought they were spending too much time on that farm but after the hiatus things REAL take an expected turn.

Anybody else notice that the first three episodes after the hiatus, the black man hardly appear and barely say three words. The last episode they give him a little more. Is like dey doh want the man in the series.
