I can usually tell from the trailers whether or not I'll like a movie and how much, so I go with a certain level of expectation (but I suppose most movie buffs do this) and I'm usually spot on about what I'm gonna get, but Drive was hard for me to figure out, so I was amazed at how good it was. I expect to leave the theater after seeing Ides of March saying "okay, it wasn't terrible," but since Ryan Gosling is in it and I like him now, I might be biased. LOL

I didn't review this one because all I would be doing is steeling from Roger Ebert. He wrote (in a generally positive review): "Clooney the director brings his actor's experience to the job and attends closely to performance. The impression remains, however, that he believes this movie to be more of an expose than it is." I call it the Ron Howard Syndrome.

That's an interesting review then. It just seems like any other thriller to me. I'm guessing then that Clooney was a bit too heavy handed in this...maybe he should do more movies like The American or Ocean's Eleven, or that movie where he was flying all the time (my memory is terrible). I liked all of those.

A Stephen King double bill

Dolores Clairborne 7/10

A woman is suspected of killing the woman she worked for, as a maid. Her estranged daughter shows up and realizes there is a lot for to this case, and her own family, than most people can imagine.
Kathy Bates and Jennifer Jason Leigh are absolutely outstanding in the leads as the mother and daughter, and with a stellar supporting cast, (including the great David Strathairn, in flashbacks, as husband/father), makes this a film to watch. There is however one major flaw: it is a bit overlong. Then again, it is directed by Taylor Hackford, and is it just me or is all his films overlong, (I have seen eight of his films, and I would label most of them as overlong)?
But overall, a good film, especially because of the great performances.

Dreamcatcher 1/10

What a piece of shit! And it is a film that has a lot of feces: no wonder. It is weird, though: from the wonderful director Lawrence Kasdan, based on a novel by Stephen King adapted by the brilliant William Goldman, you would expect more. Then again, this is just a horrible, painful experience of a motion picture. Please, don't watch this film. It's two hour plus of your life you'll never get back.
Somebody should be arrested for greenlighting this film.

Runaway Train 1985 - 7/10

I remember it was around 2007 and I was 16, and I saw the ending to it. But I recently saw it again, and man what a great movie about corruption, poor decisions, and despair. I liked how everything went okay for the characters played by Eric Roberts and John Voight, and then all of a sudden took a heart attack literally. The movie did have some slow parts and some logical errors. But the character that John Voight put on did not make me think he was John Voight, raging anger as opposed to cold a calculative in 24.

Also the fact that me being a Railfan, liked seeing the GPs and that F series.

I got Inside Job on a DVD and watched it. It seems really timely because of the Wall St protests. 10 out of 10 doesn't really do it justice, when it's a documentary explaining something very complicated, and taking huge risks to do so. I am in awe of the film-maker. Whether you're left or right you must see this film which really explains what happened in the downturn.

Of course it will probably make you mad. But that's how you know it's working.

American Juggalo - 8/10

A good documentary short about the Gathering of the Juggalos and the community. A visually pretty film and interesting subject matter. You can watch it for free online at. AmericanJuggalo.com

It is only 23 minutes long, but a pretty interesting 23 minutes. However, it is NSFW due to language and nudity. That is if you have a job you can get away with watching movies instead of working,

Tree of Life. It's NOT for everyone. It's pretentious, ambitious, painful, long, confusing.... and if you're open to it, this might be the best film you see this year. IF you don't like films that are hard to decode (think of the end of 2001 a space odyssey, or one of those complex bergman films), you won't like this either. But if you prefer that kind of complexity, this is the film for you. 9 out of 10

Crazy, Stupid, Love - 7 Stupids / 10 Crazies - Not a terrible movie by any means. It's shot well enough, the acting is strong, and there was enough pathos and laughs to keep me interested in it. It's good to see Steve Carrell in a decent movie again where he isn't playing a complete fool. I kind of wish that the parallels the film tried to make between Carrell and Gosling were done a little better. I do like how the giant romantic gesture is deflated by a bunch of misunderstandings even if the main one is simply dropped in from no where and feels a bit like a cheat. However, the power of going against the trend in these type of comidramas is ruined by another huge romantic gesture in public at the end of the film that fixes everything.

Submarine - 8 Mystic Handjobs / 10 Viking Dog Funerals - This is a very good film. There are some amazing visual sequences in this that I fell in love with. The film at times feels like a British version of a Wes Anderson film except without as much of the quirk or humor as Anderson's film generally have. Also, the tendency for the main character's narration to comment too much on the artifice of filmic techniques took me out of it. Especially near the end when he makes an oft comment about the entire thing being sort of like a coming of age story...that said, it's a strong coming of age tale that does manage to have a complex look at this young man's life as he explores first love, deals with his parent's crumbling marriage and first heartbreak. Plus, it has the line "My mom gave a handjob to a mystic."

Broken Embraces - 7/10

It seems like Pedro Almodovar didn't so much as write a script for this film, but rather had wrote down everything he came up with, and filmed it. And it works to a certain point: the first half is very slow, the second act is great and the third goes in every direction.
Everybody is doing a good job, but the final result is just good, not great as it should be. It's also a difficult plot to explain: a director looses his sight, and for years he is bearing a secret on what really happened. But one day he decides to tell his story to his young assistent, (who might also be his son).
This is a movie with a lot of style, but it's short on a deeper level... I think. Almodovar is a great filmmaker, but this is not his strongest work. Then again, it might be better to watch a lesser work by Almodovar than by a good one by someone else.

I do reccomend it, there's nothing bad about the film. The second act is terrific, and Penelope Cruz's performance is wonderful, but it's just not the great film it should be.

Bridesmaids- 6.5/10 I found it to be a bit dull. I guess I was expecting a girly-type "Hangover" movie but it was more about friendship.

Horrible Bosses 8/10 But only because I like Jason Bateman. It was slow but then funny.

Town & Country - 2/10

This movie came out ten years ago, and was the biggest failure in the history after Cutthroad Island, and was later surpassed by Pluto Nash. I hated them both, but this one wasn't too bad.

Rich, white guy Warren Beatty has sex with younger woman. Everybody knows he does it, but his best friend is gay. Charlton Heston tries to shoot him. Goldie Hawn is pissed, Diane Keaton, (wife), really loves Warren, and the foreign son in law loves them because there is no difference between America and Africa.

The Best Man (1964) Henry Fonda, Cliff Robertson, Lee Tracy 8/10.
Win with Mer Win

Advise and Consent (1962) Henry Fonda, Walter Pidgeon, Charles Laughton. Classic film, really edgy material probably even in today's films. Great classic 9/10

Bridesmaids. To sum up in one word - DISAPPOINTMENT. 6/10. The six points are for Melissa McCarthy only. Not funny. The characters suck. Thank God we didn't pay money to see this in the theater.

The Big Year - 7.5/10 I would give it more points, but Owen Wilson's whiny voice annoys me. I enjoyed the parts of it in which he didn't speak or appear on the screen. If you don't hate OW, then it's a pretty enjoyable movie.

It does in fact, probably not as huge a part as my rating metric would make it out to be, but it is indeed there.

Then I'm putting it in my netflix cue just for that scene.

Green Lantern - 5/10

It was interesting at first but it couldn't quite capture my full attention. Every dude in it had "daddy issues". It was kinda nauseating. Oh...and the "heroine" got on my nerves.

I'd rate Green Lantern 7 - 10, but that's because I saw it at a 3D IMAX and I'm a comic book nerd. The movie gave me a nerdgasm.

District 9

A raw movie in pseudo-documentary style, it's a study in racism in South Africa -among other things, like corrupt corporate security agencies and general inhumanity. Standing in for the "coloreds," are bipedal insectoid aliens marooned on Earth. The premise is copied from "Alien Nation," but it's no knockoff. It goes in a totally different direction. I highly recommend it. 8 - 10; 2 points deducted for the cartoonishness of the Nigerian side plot.

She's Having A Baby- 8/10

This was a kinda weird movie kinda, but in the end it did get the message across. And pretty good soundtrack as well. This was kinda different then John Hughes regular work. He said it was loosely based off of his life kinda.
