Kung Fu Panda 2...I like it.
Crazy Stupid Love...Really like it.
no, the one with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel
MacGruber - I thought it was amusing, and Kristen Wiig looked good.
John Carter. This benefitted from low expectations. It was ok, kind of like how phantom menace and the other star wars prequels probably would have been OK if they hadn't crapped all over my childhood. The princess looked 500 times hotter than she did in the wolverine movie.
Midnight In Paris.
This was a movie I loved because I like old stuff, reading, and I'm a hopeless romantic. I loved it but thought someone other than Owen Wilson would have been a better fit. He didn't ruin it for me at all though.

Master and Commander of the Far Side of the World
Watched it on HBOGo last night for the first time since seeing it in theaters. Really enjoyed it, and I didn't know it was based (loosely) on a novel series. Would have enjoyed it if they made more than one film. Also found it interesting how this movie came out same year as the first Pirates of the Carribean (2003).
Hall Pass...awful awful movie.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
21 Jump Street. Good for some laughs on a Saturday night. Fun to see cameos by the original cast members. Best line is when Channing Tatum blames Glee for the complete change in who the cool kids are in high school in 2012 versus 2005. Best shot is when Jonah Hill walks up to school in 2005 with the COMPLETE Slim Shady look.
Crazy Stupid Love was a terrific movie. I really, really liked it. And I'm a guy. It was the rare pseudo-chick flick that both my wife and I really enjoyed. Marisa Tomei is fantastically crazy. Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, and Steve Carrell all give terrific, terrific performances.
Was def digging on the babysitter. Do want.
Showtime On Demand movie Angie from 1994. Movie's forgettable, but it's funny to see an early James Gandolfini playing the same guy (minus the mobster) but 50 lbs slimmer and with hair. Almost looks like a leading man. Plus his annoying sister from Sopranos is in it, and Geena Davis looks pretty strong (ignore the Brooklyn accent).
I really liked that movie and was bummed they didn't make any sequels. Which I thought was weird, since they seemed to set up one at the end. Maybe Russel Crowe wouldn't sign on. Did it make a lot of money in theaters?
Watched Time Bandits last night. That might be the trippiest movie I've ever seen. I felt like they had some good ideas, but just tried to fit too much into the movie. And WTF was up with that ending??? Just an odd movie.
I love Master and Commander. I've also read about 15 of the 20 books so far.
I think the reason they never made another one was because it was a really expensive movie to make and it just didn't do that well at the box office. It "only" made 93 million in the US and 212 million worldwide. The way movie studios work, something like that doesn't get a sequel.
I loved this movie, and yes, the ending was brilliant.
story about a trapped sullen loner from a UK housing project who falls for her mothers boyfriend...incredible performance by the girl who plays the lead....amazing that this was her first ever acting job as she was found by the director on a train platform in england arguing with her boyfriend and he was like how would you like to try out for a movie role...she murders the part...great music as well...movie has no less than three hip hop anthems in it and one of the final scenes set to nas' "lifes a bitch" is just fantastic...great movie
another excellent movie that takes place mostly over one night where each half of a married couple faces temptations of infidelity...terrifically filmed and directed...nothing better than a well shot nyc picture...altho the husbands night takes place in philadelphia...keira knightly as the wife is absolutely fantastic thruout....sam worthington is the husband and eva mendes is hot as shit
Goon-Not too bad but not great either. A good way to waste a few hours.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of shadows-I enjoyed this, but liked the first one much better.
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Documentary on a recently discovered cave with incredibly well preserved cave art from 20-30 thousand years ago. The art was so well done and so vivid, they initially thought it was an elaborate hoax. They think a cave-in effectively sealed off the cave for about 20 thousand years until it was discovered in 1994. The footage of the cave is unbelievable. It's so well preserved that there are footprints from cave bears, which have been extinct for 25,000 years, still in the dirt on the cave floor.
I felt like the documentary could have been a lot better. Instead of some of the meta physical stuff the director gets into, they could have talked more about how people around the cave lived. But the footage of the cave alone makes this worth watching.
I think you're overrating it by only giving it two awfuls.
Just saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Wow. Great flick. Now the last 20 minutes was a bit unnecessary and kinda ridiculous with her stealing 2 billion dollars like it was no big deal. But really good movie.
Kung Fu Panda - fun stuff...worth it just to hear the voice of Dustin Hoffman.
Wrongfully Accused - a Leslie Nielsen vehicle. To paraphrase Anna Russell, it's the sort of thing one likes if one likes this sort of thing.
Death at a Funeral (Brit version) - pretty good, at once understated and over-the-top in a way only the Brits can get away with.

Watched Spike Lee's "Clockers" for the first time (I know, I know..).. I approve.
Watching "Catfish" right now.. interesting so far, halfway through.
Pan's Labyrinth on IFC as we speak.
Not my favorite movie, but a perfect movie.
Saw this recently as well---thought it was really good. I can't wait for the sequels.
Watching 21 Jump Street tonight.
Attitude Reflects Leadership
I just saw a serious movie.
It was one of those recommended on Netflix movies and it's all subtitled so I figured I'd give it about 5 minutes before turning it off. I was hooked 5 minutes in. If you can handle all subtitled and like gritty spy/war movies you really should check it out.
Directed by Ole Christian Madsen. With Thure Lindhardt, Mads Mikkelsen, Stine Stengade, Peter Mygind. A drama centered on two fighters in the Holger Danske World War II resistance group.
Just finished watching Spike lee's School Daze. Great music throughout the whole movie. "Doing Da Butt" gets my vote as the 2nd best live version of a song during a feature film. Only Purple Rain by Prince was better.
I would highly recomend the movie Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman.
You probably won't be able to find it at the video store, and it ain't on Netflix, but you can watch it in ten minute increments on Youtube. Well worth the time. Great performance by Timothy Spall as Albert Pierrepoint, carried out over 600 executions in his career. I highly recommend this one.
