Watched Ted and There Will Be Blood both for the first time this week.
Ted - Entertaining and had a couple funny moments but was kind of dumb, really.
There Will Be Blood - Excellent movie that at its core explores whether money is more powerful than faith/beliefs. Will watch again.
I liked it but I've seen at least a half dozen movies this year I liked better.
Watched The Game the other day on Netflix. That shit was awesome.
A man's gotta eat!
Gran Torino is one of those movies that whenever it is on TV I stop and watch it.
15-20 years ago with Sean Penn? Yeah I remember that being pretty awesome.
Yep. Its old but I hadn't seen or heard about it until the other day.
John Dies at the End. Strange movie that started out really well but kind of goes all over the place. Then goes really B movie comedy/horror and continues to go all over the place with little to no explanations. It has some laughs, and is actually a rather fun movie most of the time. I would recommend it if you like schlock or if you have seen Bubba Ho-Tep and liked that (same director and has a similar feel to it). Far from an Academy Award winner, and would probably be fun at home with some friends and beer so you can discuss the "WTF?!" moments.
I just watched the Evil Dead for the first time. Knew it was a cult hit and Drag Me to Hell (also by Sam Raimi) scared the crap out of me. I don't think I felt comfortable the entire movie. It definitely did the job and then some as far as horror movies go. Made me laugh at times as well.
Humanoids from the Deep. It would be perfect for MST3K, but it was plenty entertaining on its own. Quality Corman with blood and tits and rubber suit monsters
'Little Children'. Very dark film and disturbing at some points. It's about how the lives of two people that are in troubled marriages interact and how a small town reacts to a sex offender moves back into the neighborhood to live with his mother. Like I said before there are some disturbing parts but it's also narrated by the same guy who voices over the Dos Equis commercials (not the old guy in the commercials). Overall 4/5.

Just got back from Singapore...long flights.
- End of watch
- The Perks of Beinfg a Wall Flower
All really good flicks....worth your time for sure.
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover
Pretty odd movie with some messed up shit (literally). But enjoyable enough.
Best part easily was seeing Helen Mirren, circa 1989, nude in many scenes. Good heavens, she is smokin'.
Holy shit that was fucking creepy. This is a documentary about the modeling industry's 'supply chain' basically involving the trafficking of 13- or 14-year-old girls from Siberia to Japan. Disturbing on so many levels. The woman heading the search for the model agency is an ex-model herself. Her story alone is quite unsettling considering that, knowing the effect these agencies have on young girls' lives, she works for them anyway.
The girls are borderline anorexic enough as it is, and their contracts forbid them from adding a cm to any of their measurements. You see how these agencies chew up and spit out the young models. It's quite heartbreaking.
The documentary really is just scratching the surface, though. It feels like the first part of what could be a three-part dissection of the modeling industry. I feel like the filmmakers need to go deeper on this.
Drive. It was...okay. Hate that actress in every movie she's in. She sucks. 6/10
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
What, you don't like 90 minutes of Ryan Gosling staring?
My week with Marilyn, pretty good actually, Michelle Williams looks good with some meat on her bones
I watched Yentl for probably the 100th time tonight!
Barbara Streisand still makes me tinkle!
That Yentl puts the 'she' in 'yeshiva'
End of Watch last night. Very good flick. Depressing, but worth checking out for sure.
'Marley' is on Palladia, channel 209 xfinity. Pretty cool documentary.

"Here Comes the Boom" with Kevin James.....surprisingly decent. Worth a rental at least.
End of Watch was one of my favorite movies from 2012. I dig crime thrillers and I thought it was extremely well done. Directed by the guy who wrote the script for Training Day.
Not a movie but my buddy & I just watched the first episode of the new BBC show , Utopia. It's a weird, fantasy-thriller that revolves around a Graphic Novel that, supposedly, tells what will happen in the future. It's brutally violent, looks amazing and might be the best series opener I've seen since Game of Thrones. Not showing in the States now but it can be watched if you know how to find it.
Saw Zero Dark Thirty over the weekend. It was good, but it certainly wasn't the best 2.5 hours I've spent at the movies in the last year.
Ranking the Oscar nominees I've seen:
1. Django Unchained
3a. Silver Linings Playbook
3b. Zero Dark Thirty
Moonrise Kingdom. Loved the cast, the storyline, the wackiness of the whole thing. Classic Wes Anderson. 8/10
Watched the Icelandic gangster/crime film, Black's Game last night. It's produced by Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn and owes a lot to Refn's Pusher Trilogy. Overall, it was a pretty entertaining movie. Nothing groundbreaking and the fast cuts to electronic music is getting a little tired but I went in expecting that.
Never tried to post a video on mobile but here's the trailer...
