Dangerous (1935) 5/10

This movie is shit.

Bette Davis is shit.

Franchot Tone is shit.

I just wasted an hour-and-a-half of my life that I'll never get back.

5/10 doesn't sound so shitty though.

D&D has his own personal ranking system:

1-4/10 don't exist
5/10: shit
6/10: shit+
7/10: watchable
8/10: great!
9/10: masterpiece
10/10: the patriot

yes, 5/10 is a shitty movie, a failing rating.

And btw, the reason I virtually never rate anything lower than 5/10 is that if a movie is that bad, I usually won't finish watching it, I'll shut it off; and I never give a rating to a movie that I haven't watched completely. So, anytime I rate a movie, it's almost always gonna be a minimum of 5/10 or 6/10. which are both failing ratings IMO. less than 6/10 is shit. 6-6.5/10 is mediocre,  7-7.5/10 is good, 8/10 and up is very good.

Btw, I sort of have adopted n_l's system of giving most great movies a 9.5/10 and reserving 10/10 for the absolute best of the best, so I've been giving more 9.5/10's lately and less 10/10's. But yeah, I figure I've wasted my time if a movie is anything less than a 7/10. Then again, some people's time is more valuable than others'  :P

That means I was pretty right with the scale I just posted.

No.

I already told you The Patriot has its own, unique 11/10 rating  ;)

if you must know, no, I wouldn't say 8/10 is "great" or 9/10 is a "masterpiece."



anything less than 6/10 is shit
6-6.5/10 is mediocre
7/10 is decent
7.5/10 is good
8-9/10 is very good
9.5/10 is great and 10/10 is masterpiece

God's Pocket (2014) - 8/10. Hey, a POS Indy production that isn't a total POS! According to the director (some guy named John Slattery), inspiration for the look and feel of this adaptation of a Pete Dexter novel came from The Friends of Eddie Coyle. And although set in a Philly neighborhood, some of the shooting (I just discovered) took place down the road from me, in Port Chester, NY. There's a plot, about small time crooks and their problems, but mostly this is a film to turn to in order to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the performances. And what performances! John Turturro is a crook and degenerate gambler who runs a flower shop (with Joyce Van Patten!). Eddie Marsan is a crook who runs a funeral home and demands cash on the barrelhead. Richard Jenkins is a alcoholic columnist who has no interest in anything besides booze until he catches sight of Christina Hendricks, who is married to lead crook Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hoffman plays the world's most pathetic grifter--it's an inspired performance in a tailor-made role. I chuckled hard watching him flail about, a bug on his back in a world he never made (I can't wait to see this talented actor in his next 10 film roles). The film is a comedy, but a dark one.

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

I take it you are not a fan of Mad Men then. He plays the often show-stealing Roger Sterling.

I don't watch much TV, but I did come across his credits when researching the film. Is Roger Sterling the gray-haired gent?

Yes. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the main character, but the Roger Sterling character gets all the best lines.

Not really. There are too many others in Mad Men.

Oh come on Stanton, they even published a book apparently containing nothing but his sardonic one-liners:

I just saw Saboteur (1942). Didn't like it much. There's some good suspenseful stuff but this isn't a very good movie. I give it a 6/10.

Anyway, I did a search to see if there have been any past posts about this movie, and (because someone poasted about this right around Inauguration Day 2009) lo and behold, I came across an intense discussion (from the good old days before I joined the SLWB) about Obama   http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=7645.msg124036#msg124036
;D

(I never said this has anything to do with Obama sabotaging America. Don't put words in my mouth.)

The Beach - 5/10

Finally convinced myself I had to see it once and Netflix gave me a hand.
