    Excellent.

    I watched 90-minutes of the 94-minute movie, I just couldn't watch "that scene".

    I've sen Duel about a half-a-dozen times, very good.

    Repo Men was good too, there was a twist at the end I didn't see coming.

    Playing catch-up.


    Solid and tense. Soderbergh did a great job managing a huge cast, giving all of them enough screen time, but not too much. We've probably all seen 4 or 5 movies similar to this, but I'm not sure I've seen one done quite this well. They did a really good job with the suspense. I wasn't super happy about the ending, but I'm not sure how else it could have ended.



    Kind of a Sherlock Holmes set in old school China with supernatural elements and kung fu. This film was a lot of fun, if a bit over-the-top and silly. Actually, it was kind of bat**** crazy, but it worked and was a lot of fun. Currently playing in limited theatrical release out here. Recommended.




    John Travolta plays a sound editor on shlocky horror films and one night while he's out recording natural sounds in a park, he witnesses and accident that he believes was a murder, but no one else does. And he has the sound to prove it. It was much more tense and interesting than I would have thought, and I enjoyed it, though the climax was a little bit of a letdown. I wouldn't mind seeing it again, though.




    A more artsy, character driven take on the "assassin takes one last job, decides not to kill, and employers decide to kill him" story. I liked it a lot. Thought the cinematography was really, really nice. It's a bit slow, which I know was a problem for some people who went to see it in the theaters based on commercials that made it look like an action film, but it's a worthwhile flick. Very well done.




    This is a movie that's grown on me quite a bit with repeated viewings. I remember being so excited about Michael Mann making a movie with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale about John Dillinger and then being a little disappointed by it, but every time I've watched it since then I've appreciated it a little more. I ****ing LOVE Mann's style and I love watching Johnny Depp be all smooth and badass. I will actually purchase this someday.




    BoobyTrap put this one for me, after we watched Public Enemies at my insistence. I thought it was pretty fun, although nothing spectacular. Worth a watch.



    Now THIS was a ****ing cool movie. I DVR'ed it just because it was a Criterion release and it sounded interesting, but I was pretty blown away by it, anyway. Even BoobyTrap liked it, which is a rarity for a Criterion film. Cornel Wilde is leading some rich, white dude on a safari hunt in Africa when they run into a native tribe that asks for some sort of gift. Wilde tells the rich dude to give them something inexpensive simply as a sign of respect, but the guy refuses and pisses the natives off. The safari crew walk off and later on, the tribe catch up with them and kill every single member of the safari (including the Africans helping them out) in bizarre and nasty ways except for one: Cornel Wilde. He is stripped down and given a head start before a group of 10 tribesmen start hunting him. And so you've got a naked white man trying to stay alive in the African wild while being hunted by natives and some of the animals, too.

    Seriously, a badass movie. Some great survival stuff interspersed with stuff they shot of wild animals in Africa in their natural habitat. I really, really liked this movie a lot and I recommend it highly.




    We basically watched this because BT has a thing for Chris Evans. It was pretty crappy, although not so much that it was painful to watch. Beyond Jason Statham being a really inept bad guy, anyway. A forgettable, throwaway flick, although William H Macy was cool in it.




    Woody Harrelson is a mentally handicapped man who goes around trying to be a superhero and Kat Dennings is the coke whore who befriends him (and shows NO CLEAVAGE AT ALL). It was ok. Parts of it were funny and parts of it were emotionally well done, but overall I just didn't really care about this movie. I never really cared about the characters and I was never really able to get into it. And no cleavage? Really? Booooooooo.




    JD and Orpheus told me this was worth watching, so I bought the 3 pack of Psycho sequels at Big Lots. Norman Bates is finally let out of prison because his psychiatrist (Robert Loggia as a psychiatrist?!) says he's not crazy anymore and fit to join society. So Norman goes back to the hotel and back to the house on the hill. And, of course, things don't go very well.

    The first thing that really struck me watching this movie was how poorly Anthony Perkins had aged. He was a fairly good looking guy in the first film, but here he looks scrawny, old and awkward. I had some trouble for a while even just watching him. Not really his fault, I guess, but all the same. Similarly, the movie felt awkward and strange at first. Unsettling in that I was just having trouble getting into it. I'm happy to say, though, that by the end of the flick I found myself enjoying it. The last 30 minutes or so were especially good and I think did justice to the whole Norman Bates myth, if you can call it that. Overall I'd say I liked it, though it's nowhere near the original, of course. Worth a watch, though.




    All I really want to say about this, because I have professed my love for it previously, is that the Blu-Ray has TONS of great special features. Some super funny, awesome **** was cut out of the movie and it seems like they really packed everything they could into the special features here. So if you enjoyed this movie, then you really ought to buy this release.

    Can I take this one. Cedar Rapids is pretty unlikeable. A little darker than you would imagine. Insidious is a well done little flick. The ending comes apart a little due to the budgetary constraints but not enough to dismiss the movie. But yeah, Lagwagon...what'd ya think?
