    Yeah, Equilibrium isn't a masterpiece or anything, but it's really entertaining.

    i am just finishing up reading tom clancy's 2nd novel: red storm rising, and it made me think of watching the hunt for red october. so i revisited that. man, such a fantastic movie in every respect.
    9/10.
    There are very few movies that I'll stop to watch if I run into them while channel surfing and they're already well underway. But, The Hunt for Red October is definitely one of them. (The Princess Bride is another, FWIW.)

    I recently revisted the SciFi channel's Dune miniseries. Good show. A respectful rendition of a great book. 8/10

    I was assigned Red Storm Rising for PoliSci 124 in 1988. Which was great because I'd read it for pleasure when it was published. The whole thing was scarily plausible in those days.

    No, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2059255/. Really great stuff; watched it via video on demand via one of the premium cable channels (starz I think). Excellent movie, 9 out of 10.

    Several years ago, a friend recommended the movie Triangle, saying simply, "You should queue this one up - I think you'll really like it." Fast-forward a little more than two years, and the movie finally made it to the top of our queue. The DVD arrived on Saturday, and I watched it with my wife that night.

    Knowing absolutely nothing about the film, (which is always my preferred way to take in a movie), we sat down to watch it with moderate expectations. I've got to say my friend was right - this was a really entertaining movie! It's not without its flaws, but most of them were easily overlooked. And, although it's broadly categorized as a horror movie, (incorrectly so, IMO), it's really a fantastic brain-twister that left us scratching our heads and looking to re-watch it right away. So we did.

    Triangle - 8.5/10

    The premise of the movie Iron Sky is that at the end of World War II, the Nazis retreated to a base they had constructed on the dark side of the moon. And now, some 70 years later, they're returning to Earth and reestablish their dominance.

    It's a silly scifi comedy that delivers more hits than misses. - 6.5/10

    Premium Rush. 5/10

    tbh the bike chase scenes were done better than I expected. And the horrible, campy, omg fixie 4 lyfe quotes were pretty damn entertaining. "Brakes are death. The worst thing to ever happen to me was when I had a brake."

    "You used your brake again didn't you?" "I tore that **** off!"

    The movie is good...rate it as a solid 8/10.
    The Sessions - 9/10 sensible movie with a lot of Helen Hunt full frontal nudity
    The Evil Dead original 80's gore horror flick - 10/10
    Taboo I, II, III - what can I say a perfect 10/10

    Long Live Rock and Roll - 60th Birthday party concert for/with Chuck Berry. Filmed before an appreciative crowd in 1985 at the Fabulous (and it is fabulously restored) Fox Theater in St. Louis. Other musical talent includes Robert Cray, Etta James, Linda Ronstadt, Julian Lennon, with Johnny Johnson on piano, Bobby Keyes on sax, Keith Richards on guitar. Additional commentary by Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Bo Diddley, Bruce Springsteen, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

    10/10.

    Thor-The Dark World--8/10. Fairly entertaining. Natalie Portman is a cutie as a nerdie scientist-type.

    Is it better than David Lynch's movie version. I rewatched part of that on HBO last night - first time since I've seen it since it originally came out - and it was every bit as bad as I remembered (1/10). I had forgotten how many people were in it - a young(er) Patrick Stewart, Sting, etc.

    Scrolling through Comcast's list of free On-Demand movies last night, I spotted River's Edge. I hadn't seen this movie in probably 25 years, but my I remembered it as being a good one. So, I re-watched it and pretty much confirmed my recollection.

    Aside from Crispin Glover's ridiculously bad acting, (which, frankly, seems to be the only way he knows how to "act"), this was a really good movie, even though it's also moderately depressing.

    River's Edge - 8/10

    Gravity was good. I'd give it an even 8.

    Here's an interesting short that's supposedly coming out on the Gravity Blu-Ray DVD.

    Bill Cunningham New York, documentary about the 80 year old fashion photographer for the NYT who uses his bicycle to to get about Manhattan taking pictures of fashion on the street as well as fashion shows and charity/society functions. Very interesting man of many admirable qualities. Highly recommended.

    I watched Ghosts of Mars the other night. Turns out I shouldn't have bothered - it was awful in almost every respect.

    Ghosts of Mars - 3/10

    Man of Steel. 7/10 not bad. A bit heavy on the CG fight scenes at the end but entertaining nonetheless
