    Layer Cake, Butterfly Effect 3 (213/122)

    by  • 5/2/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    Two films today while waiting for election results. One has caused me to declare all cast and crew involved as enemies that I must destroy, and the other one was really good. We’ll start with the good, progress to the bad. No spoilers in the good one, but I’m going to give it all away […]

    The Babysitters, Rio (186/112)

    by  • 4/22/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    THE BABYSITTERS (Netflix) – Teenager finds herself a part-time job sleeping with the man she babysits for, then finds that he has other friends who need “babysitters” as well. Pretty soon, she’s a pimp with an enforcer. Then competition pops up, and the lead has to step things up a bit. The reviews on Netflix […]

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

    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 […]

    Planet of The Apes (2001), The Informant (178/107)

    by  • 4/17/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    PLANET OF THE APES (iTunes) – This 2001 remake doesn’t try very hard on all fronts. Could they make the wire-fu look any lamer? It takes all of the excellent costuming and effects and turns them into bad cartoons. Most of the apes have great prosthetics, and the actors seem to have worked to get […]

    Falling Down (174/105)

    by  • 4/15/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    FALLING DOWN (iTunes) – One of those days when you just keep stumbling across weapon power-ups. Baseball bat, butterfly knife, machine gun, BFG… well, that might have been a different movie I’m thinking of, or Duke Nuke ’em That’s a hell of a way to treat a vet! You’re an animal doctor? In my memory, […]

    Scream 2, Scream 3 (173/104)

    by  • 4/14/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    SCREAM 2 (DVD) – I do like how Angry Girlfriend in the movie theatre gets twitchy? Also seriously annoying movie-talker, so she had a stabbing coming. I don’t think anyone would fault the killer for that one. The film class off the start really calls it when they say the sequels are always worse than […]

    Inglorious Basterds, Scream (171/103)

    by  • 4/13/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (DVD) – This is no RESERVOIR DOGS, but this one at least ties for second best Tarantino feature, maybe tied with PULP FICTION. I don’t want to hear from DEATH PROOF and KILL BILL fans that I’ve neglected their favorites. I like all of them, but like children, you really need to rank […]

    A-Team (169/102)

    by  • 4/12/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    A-TEAM (DVD) – I had to watch this just to see how bad it could be. I started this off with bottomed-out expectations, and boy, did they not even meet those. Bad special effects with not even a passing acquaintance with physics. They’re not helping some innocent person, instead this is a two hour origin […]

    The Seventh Seal (168/101)

    by  • 4/11/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    THE SEVENTH SEAL (DVD) – It would seem that I need to watch more Bergman. From everything I have read since seeing PERSONA, I picked a very very bad place to start in his filmography, as it’s cited by some as one of his most impenetrable works. THE SEVENTH SEAL was one I was not […]
