    Run, Fatboy, Run (336/192)

    by  • 7/11/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    RUN, FATBOY, RUN (iTunes) – Spite can be a powerful motivator. At least for the first couple minutes… This isn’t HOT FUZZ, it’s a bit simplistic, and it was directed by… DAVID SCHWIMMER? But Dylan Moran and Simon Pegg turn the whole thing into CITIZEN KANE as far as I’m concerned.

    I Love You, Phillip Morris (296/166)

    I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS (iTunes) – I don’t really care for much of Jim Carrey’s recent work, and less so since he outted himself as a moron with his anti-fax stance with his Ex, Jenny McCarthy. He was good in ETERNAL SUNSHINE and TRUMAN SHOW, but he all too often plays his roles like […]

    Adventureland (294/164)

    ADVENTURELAND (iTunes) – Who knew Mark Zuckerberg worked in a crappy amusement part in the 80s? Oh right, that’s just Jesse Eisenberg’s style. Good movie; funny, charming, nostalgic. Nostalgia may be limited to those of us not born after 1985. Kristen Stewart doesn’t have that “hit with a shovel” look that you may have seen […]

    Rubber (285/159)

    by  • 6/8/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    RUBBER (iTunes) – Based on the trailer, I initially thought that this might be something along the lines of ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES; a funny, odd horror film with an unlikely killer. Instead, there’s something much more unusual going on here. It’s something of a surrealist fantasy with a couple really unusual plots at […]

    Daydream Nation, Dummy (278/152)

    DAYDREAM NATION (iTunes) – Main characters include a sad, lonely English teacher, who becomes more pathetic as time goes by; a beautiful and bored new girl at school; and a small group of stoners. Everyone in this film thinks that they’re a special unique flower, and they all seem like they’re waiting for someone else […]

    In The Loop (233/132)

    by  • 5/12/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    IN THE LOOP (iTunes) – This is one of those comedic films that doesn’t do the one thing that I’d expect from a comedy – it doesn’t make me laugh. These are funny people, but the whole thing presents as a documentary around government bureaucracy, and not a comedy. It’s interesting, and some of the […]

    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 […]
