    Live Free or Die Hard (38/18)

    by  • 1/18/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD – aka DIE HARD 4. This isn’t the best of the films for me, but I’d watch it over the second film anytime. I think the third film had its moments, but this one was more consistant. That said… For me, this is a film where technology is written somewhat […]

    Drive, Grindhouse (535/316)

    by  • 11/12/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    DRIVE – I was pretty impressed with this film, especially that I liked ALL of the actors’ work. Gosling, Cranston, Perlman, and Brooks. Albert Brooks became scary at one point. I don’t think I’ve ever been afraid of Brooks in any role until now. I thought that this might have been more of a FAST […]

    Chinese movie update (509/298)

    by  • 10/25/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    During our trip to China (October 12-24) I didn’t really track the when and where of each of these films; many were on the flights, some were during hotel downtime. Most of these 22 films were during the over 40 hours of airport and flight time we had during our travels. Thankfully, Cathay Pacific had […]

    Godfather, Saw III, Saw IV (467/268)

    by  • 9/25/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    GODFATHER – Fantastic movie – all three hours of it are important to the story of Don Corleone’s (Brando) fall and the rise of his replacement, son Michael (Pacino). I read the book one summer in high school, and never found the time to sit through the full film. It’s one solid piece of film… […]

    Phoebe In Wonderland, Hobo with a Shotgun (417/243)

    by  • 8/31/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND (Netflix) – I actually read the Alice books a couple years ago, and they’re really quit disturbing. Alice was a very sad, lonely girl. A strong character, but seriously flawed. Here we have a film about the kind of Alice I read about in the story as an adult; not the one […]

    Chaos Theory, Paper Man (415/242)

    by  • 8/30/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    CHAOS THEORY (Netflix) – About the only thing this film really has going for it in the grand scheme is Sarah Chalke, and she’s little more than a prop in lingerie in this film. Romantic comedy that has an anal retentive list maker who plans his day to the minute married to someone who resents […]

    Interplanetary, Aaah! Zombies!!, Terri (398/232)

    by  • 8/20/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    INTERPLANETARY (Netflix) – This film isn’t really clear on what it wants to be. It could be a satire about overly bureaucratic organizations or a science-fiction monster movie. I enjoy low budget films, but not when they’re boring. AAAH! ZOMBIES!! (WASTED AWAY) (Netflix) – Another extremely low budget zombie movie where the zombie epidemic is […]

    Young@Heart, Repulsion (359/211)

    by  • 7/30/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    YOUNG@HEART (Netflix) – There are some fun candid scenes; soft shoe in the jail hallway, discussions about who has and has not had the Last Rites said for them, etc. Are these 70 and 80-somethings feeling young because they sing, or do they sing because they feel young? Singing old standards that you’d hear from […]
