    I found the criticism a little harsh. I'd give it a 7.

    Warm Bodies - I watched this one last night. It's a slightly different take on the zombie genre, and it's not bad... But it's also not great. Maybe, say, a 6.5/10.

    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.
    both the standard release and directors cut are both excellent. easily one of my favorite movies of the last 20 years. katherine ross is a nice surprise.

    Last night, I had a chance to re-watch Wes Anderson's first movie, Bottle Rocket. The last time I saw this movie was probably 15 years ago, and I've since become a huge Wes Anderson fan.

    The movie stands the test of time pretty well, and also shows some flashes of the high-quality filmmaker Anderson would become, but Bottle Rocket is easily his weakest and most significantly flawed output. It certainly didn't seem that way back when I first saw it, but now that Anderson has a body of work to compare it to, Bottle Rocket's defects are undeniable. Still, if I had to put a number on it, I'd give it a 6.5/10 - It's probably worth 90-ish minutes of your time, but not a must-see.

    Casino is on that list for me. Mostly because of the Pesci scene in the cornfield.

    Did you ever get a DVD from Netflix that you forgot you'd added to your queue? That's what happened to us on Saturday, when we received Date Night (with Steve Carell & Tina Fey). Then it came back to me: I remember seeing commercials for the movie when it was in theaters and thinking, "This might be OK... I should queue it up in Netflix." And then it arrived...

    It's not especially bad, but not very good either. Several scenes were good for chuckles, but there was only one or two legitimately good laughs. 5.5/10

    Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story - I'd heard some good things about this movie, but it turns out they were wrong. Dead wrong. Maybe my expectations of the movie being more biographical than fictional were unreasonable, but I'd give it a 4/10 at best.

    While having a totally unrelated conversation with my wife, I happened to mention that I'd never seen Play Misty for Me. She said that a few days earlier, while skimming through Comcast's free on-demand flicks, she spotted this movie, (which she had seen many years ago), and that I should watch it.

    So, I did. Man, what a snore!! There were no explosions, no robots, no CGI... Hell, they didn't even have cell phones!

    Actually, it was pretty good. This was Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, and that's definitely evident with some pacing problems and a fair bit of self-indulgence. But, the good outweighed the bad, (and the ugly - heh ), and the movie was an enjoyable way to kill an hour-and-a-half or so . 6.5/10

    Riddick was completely forgettable, which was a shame because I'm a big fan of David Twohy's movies.

    GRAVITY in IMAX/3D.

    Damn. So good.
    Tense all the way through. Visually stunning. Not for the faint of heart, or people who get nauseous. Lots of spinning.
    SEE IT.

    The Time Travelers Wife...9/10.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Iron Man 3. Not sure what to rate it. Wouldn't be good. It just didn't do it for the wife or I. Most movies, I can just suspend my disbelief and go with it. This one, though, had so many logical and plot holes I couldn't do it. Probably give it a 5/10 at best.
    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"

    Flipping through the On-Demand free movies last night, I spotted 21 Jump Street and decided to give it a shot. It's not the kind of movie I'd normally consider watching, but I'd heard that it was pretty funny.

    About 35 minutes into this painfully unfunny comedy, I decided I'd had enough and I bailed out. Which is significant for me, because I almost never give up and just walk away from a movie without finishing. But, I really couldn't see continuing to watch this one as being anything more than a total waste of time.

    21 Jump Street - 2/10

    SEE IT.
    I couldn't agree more. I was quite literally on the edge of my seat for over half of the movie. Only I saw it in 2D, because I typically hate 3D movies. However, after reading SO MANY reviews that urge viewing this in 3D, I plan to see it again in that format. I wish we had an IMAX. Hmmm...road trip?

    cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2

    8 out of 10

    as i pulled on the 3d glasses and sat down
    i began to dread my decision
    i was expecting a complete rehashed copy of the original
    but i found it to be imaginative and fun

    in short
    much better than i expected

    Heh, fair enough. I'll revise my rating...

    The first 35 minutes of 21 Jump Street: 2/10

    While I DVR'd the American Horror Story season three premier last night, (to be viewed Saturday night with the wife), I decided to re-watch a movie I hadn't seen in at least 10 or 12 years: The Graduate.

    Turns out it's just as excellent, awkward, and enjoyable as it ever was... No surprise there.

    The Graduate - 8.5/10
