I stopped buying so many DVDs once I realized how many damn movies there were out there and now I'm just trying to see as many movies as I can. Same with CDs. I mainly just do iTunes DLs

Smelly Catfish with an Ego

Posted : 2 months, 2 weeks ago on 7 May 2018 03:20 (A review of Catfish)

A small movie starring a big ego and bruised people.

While the main subject becomes irritating by the end of the film, the idea and concept of the film and the blatant commentary on our modern society makes this documentary worth seeing.

And clearly the concept was interesting enough to spawn a television show.

Splinters Never Felt So Good

Posted : 3 months, 4 weeks ago on 24 March 2018 11:49 (A review of Splinters)

Two competing surf clubs in Papua New Guinea show us real passion, desire, sportsmanship, and what it takes to compete under external stresses.
It was clear to me the filmmakers had an earnest interest in their subjects and the subjects had an honest presence.

These are the Amateurs

Posted : 3 months, 4 weeks ago on 24 March 2018 11:36 (A review of The Amateurs)

I can't help but like Bridges in anything he does. This is a cheaply made movie that had average results. Its outcome should have been more impressive with such an ensemble cast.

What we already Knew...

Posted : 7 months, 1 week ago on 13 December 2017 02:07 (A review of What Maisie Knew)



A sweet yet heartbreaking story that is sadly too common. While the story is predictable the performances are realistic, especially Onata Aprile as Maisie. And, possibly for the first time ever Julianne Moore did a good job, mainly because she was perfectly cast as a very unlikable mother.

A lot of Number Two

Posted : 10 months ago on 17 September 2017 06:51 (A review of Jackass: Number Two)

I thought maybe they would pump up the gags even more in the second one, but it seemed like the same old mildly entertaining shock and awe attempts. Still, you can't help but be entertained by real people doing really stupid shit. Lots of shit.

Casting Gets Their Day

Posted : 10 months, 3 weeks ago on 28 August 2017 02:18 (A review of Casting By (2012))


A documentary giving credit to casting directors, who have a history of not receiving proper credit. One big hole in Hollywood credit, is the absence of a casting director for the Academy Awards and other big award ceremonies.

Casting is an art, it is a science, and directing it takes lots of skill. Seeing something special or unique in someone where others can't.

Sarah Tells Stories

Posted : 10 months, 3 weeks ago on 27 August 2017 09:56 (A review of Stories We Tell)




A documentary that takes a fascinating look into a family's story that is entertaining through its contradictions and format but is, at the same time, actually too personal for me to be fully invested.

What a Tracks You?

Posted : 10 months, 4 weeks ago on 26 August 2017 10:55 (A review of Tracks)



Robyn (Mia Wasikowska) does her best Australian version of Christopher Mccandless (Into the Wild). Unfortunately the story just isn't terribly compelling, and while there are heartfelt moments, I was never very invested into the character and story. Unlike with 'Into the Wild' I felt like there was always a pretty easy out so the seriousness of the mission lacked.


I do like the thought of pursuing a dream and being determined no matter what.  Robyn needed this adventure.  She was attracted to this life.


I'm also glad I got learn a bit more about camels.

Dogtooth review

Posted : 11 months, 1 week ago on 13 August 2017 06:54 (A review of Dogtooth)

#100


A very strange Greek film about a family that seems to be on its own in society.
I don't think I'll look at sparkly headbands the same way again.

The Homesman Never Dies

Posted : 11 months, 1 week ago on 13 August 2017 05:33 (A review of The Homesman (2014))




Hilary Swank tries her darnedest to win another Oscar but fails. This is a thankless role, much like her character. What saves it is Tommy Lee Jones' unrestrained performance and nice cinematography.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2007) (17 movies items)

"I like the concept. I think this would have definitely been a better movie with this casting. The only thing that might be of question in Ewan, since he played Obi Wan in the prequels he would never"
