    Wild Target, Four Lions, Monsters (375/219)

    by  • 8/7/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    WILD TARGET (Netflix) – A hired assassin takes on a job to kill a thief who defrauds a man with more money than sense. For the first time in his long career, the assassin (Bill Nighy) botches the job completely. He falls in love with his victim. It’s a bit of a farce, but enjoyable […]

    Case 39, Potiche (352/205)

    by  • 7/24/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    CASE 39 (Netflix) – If you have any problems with bugs; especially hornets or bees, you might want to avoid this film. Also, if you have problems with poorly done horror / supernatural thriller films, then you might do better elsewhere. The story is basically told twice; once with Zellweger on the outside, and another […]

    Cashback, Captain America, FUBAR II (350/204)

    by  • 7/23/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    CASHBACK (Netflix) – “This tells me so much more than you could ever say…” What? That he’s a creepy stalker wannabe? Not just figuratively undressing women with his mind, but literally undressing them when he stops time. No, not creepy at all. Other than the weird stalker vibe, it’s mostly a bit of a cute […]

    Year of The Carnivore, The Experiment (184/111)

    by  • 4/21/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    YEAR OF THE CARNIVORE (iTunes) – Cristin Milioti is fantastic in the role of Sammi Smalls. She’s the lead, but much of the story seems to happen around her. She has a great sense of comedy, with a very expressive face; she says plenty without saying anything. She reminds me a little bit of Alyson […]

    True Grit, L’Illusioniste, Wild Seven (108/67)

    by  • 3/8/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    TRUE GRIT (Netflix) – This time it’s the 1969 version with John Wayne and Kim Darby as the leads. I didn’t really like the ending in the recent remake, and I really didn’t like the ending on this one. The film itself is fine, even if I don’t buy Darby’s portrayal of a mourning daughter […]

    Let Me In, Date Night, Marwencol (91/56)

    LET ME IN (in-flight) – Been meaning to watch the original first, but while we’re here and it’s free, what the heck. Feel bad for everyone except the bullies, really. GLENN OWEN DODDS (in-flight) – short film about a conversation with God on a bus. “What am I supposed to look like? Big white beard […]

    Who is Harry Nilsson, Bug (84/52)

    by  • 2/21/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    WHO IS HARRY NILSSON (AND WHY IS EVERYBODY TALKIN’ ABOUT HIM?) (Netflix) – So many songs I know, but no idea who sang them. ONE IS THE LONELIEST NUMBER, LIME IN THE COCONUT, much more… “You’re breaking my heart, you’re tearing it apart, so fuck you” – how have I never heard this song? If […]

    Black Swan (72/46)

    by  • 2/15/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    BLACK SWAN (AMC) – Natalie Portman’s character really LIVES the part of the Swan Queen. It’s the sort of thing that gives you goose… or swan… bumps… After everything, I’m not sure who or what was real, and what was only in Nina’s head. I was entertaining a theory that Lilly was Nina’s version of […]
