When my family was getting ready to leave, my Father made me destroy them so there would be no evidence for the thought police to keep us from emigrating to the USA.

    If you wanna see some excellent but profoundly unrelentingly depressing films, try "House of Sand and Fog", and "Requiem For a Dream". Oh, man.......

    I thought it was great, it had it's odd moments but overall it was a lovely movie.

Clinical depression inducing.
    Some movies are like that. I thought the acting was pretty darn good. It was depressing but that was the goal. Loss and love.

    I saw the ABC's Of Death - 6/10...26 horror shorts based on the alphabet. Some were great but most were ewww and why?

    Not really a film, but I really dug Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Probably give it an 8/10 or so.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Grown Ups 2

    Hmm....... empirically, I guess a 5/10.

    I liked it enough not to be pissed about wasting $9 to see it, but it is pretty much the standard Sandler effort. Crude humor, weak story, basically a vehicle for the various comedic actors to get their faces on screen. Some of the humor was awkward and forced, but enough of it made me laugh out loud so that in the end I wasn't disappointed.

    Theater: Pacific Rim 6.5/10 - too loud, too much action not enough story

    TV: The Help 10/10 - always a good watch, more of a chick flick but really makes you thing and the acting is excellent, shameful how America treated minorities but a window into a previous era.

    The last film I watched was an obscure noir called "Mickey One", starring a very young Warren Beatty. Released in 1965, it's a weird tale about a nightclub comic in Detroit who flees the mob and winds up in Chicago. It's kind of surreal. The opening scene where Mickey lands in Chicago-at a scrapyard on the west side, where a police investigation is being conducted-sort of sets the tone for the whole film. I don't think it's ever been released for home viewing-I recorded it on my DVR some months ago and finally got around to watching it. I mostly wanted to see the scenes of vintage sixties Chicago.

    I haven't seen a new film in a theater in....I'd say six years or so. I like watching on the big screen but don't like the cost (and frankly the kinds of movies I'd like to watch in a theater are never at any of the theaters around here!).

    Killing Them Softly. 0/10 Worst movie I ever saw or heard. A non-stop F-bomb fest with no redeeming factors. Unless watching slo-mo gunshot killings is a viewer's idea of entertainment. Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini really must have needed extra dough for something to appear in this stinker.

    i thought for a second

    As the second and third sentences indicated the zero rating was for the dud of a movie.

    My highest ratings for concerts on film are for Paul Simon: Graceland - The African Concert recorded 1987 in Zimbabwe. I have this on VHs but haven't been able to locate it in my basement; and Sign O' the Times, Prince Concert from 1987.

    9/10 for both.

    Blue Jasmine. 7/10. Cate Blanchett is amazing and is clearly the front runner for the Oscar, but Woody gets San Francisco all wrong. I realize he shot it on location but I'd be surprised if he ever left his trailer. It's not Manhattan West.

    i realized my error quite quickly
    but my initial shock and rage
    made my eyes cross
    and i had trouble reading the rest

    I'd probably rate Requiem for a Dream as the best film I never, ever want to see again.

    Kick Ass 2 – It’s not as novel as the first one was, and it's not quite as entertaining either, but it was still pretty good overall. If you liked the original movie, you’ll probably like this sequel.

    One of the things I really enjoy about being a dad is introducing my kids to quality movies and music. Over this past weekend, I introduced my 14-year-old son to these two movies, (re-watching them, myself):

    Donnie Darko – Having seen this four times now in the last ten years or so, I still find it to be a really enjoyable movie that rewards multiple viewings.

    Battle Royale – While this is still a good watch, I think the way the graphic depiction of extreme violence in movies has escalated in the time since Battle Royale was released has kind of taken the teeth out of this film, rendering it somewhat tame.
