Watched 'Everything Must Go' with Will Ferrell. Decent movie, but I looked on IMDB and the little black kid in the movie is Biggie Smalls' son. Weird.
Saw Mud yesterday and can't recommend it enough. Jeff Nichols is, quietly, making some really great films. His previous two, Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter were very good but Mud is a huge step forward.
Zero Dark Thirty:
Good, not great. Interesting, but not edge of your seat entertaining.
one of the creepier movies i have seen in quite some time.

End of Watch, decent movie for sure recommend,
Looper, not really sure how to take the ending...

Silver Linings Playbook
I had little idea what this movie was about going in. The story immediately caught. Excellent performances throughout. Some really funny moments and some sad. An interesting portrayal of people trying to deal with traumatic life events under the burden of mental health issues and finding ways to manage.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
finally saw 'Searching For Sugar Man'. highly recommend checking it out.
Searching For Sugar Man was really great but I watched A Band Called Death last night, through On-Demand, and I actually thought it was a better movie. Death consisted of three African-American brothers, from Detroit, who recorded some incredible "punk" rock in the early 70's. They were never signed and the recordings we're stuck in an attic until Drag CIty released "For The Whole World To See" in 2009.

A documentary on the 1970s punk trio Death, and their new-found popularity decades after they disbanded.
This sounds really interesting. Where on On-Demand did you find it?
The Other F Word is decent as well. I think it is on Showtime On-Demand.
THE OTHER F WORD
directed by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins
produced by Cristan Reilly and Andrea Blaugrund Nevins
NOW AVAILABLE ON DEMAND AND DIGITAL - http://ow.ly/eFXa6
This revealing and touching film asks what happens when a generation's ultimate anti-authoritarians -- punk rockers -- become society's ultimate authorities -- dads. With a large chorus of punk rock's leading men - Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Rise Against's Tim McIlrath - THE OTHER F WORD follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band's anthem "F--k Authority," to embracing his ultimately authoritarian role in mid-life: fatherhood.
Other dads featured in the film include skater Tony Hawk, Art Alexakis (Everclear), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Tony Adolescent (The Adolescents), Fat Mike (NOFX), Lars Frederiksen (Rancid), and many others.
I have ATT Uverse but I think it's available through any Cable/Dish On-Demand service. It's one of those "see it before it hits the theaters" deals so it's not cheap. Well worth the price though.
A movie made with 7000$ about time travel that is surprisingly good.
Directed by Shane Carruth. With Shane Carruth, David Sullivan, Casey Gooden, Anand Upadhyaya. Four friends/fledgling entrepreneurs, knowing that there's something bigger and more innovative than the different error-checking devices they've built, wrestle over their new invention.

Identity Thief. It was terrible.
Finally caught the new Star Trek. Great popcorn movie. Plenty of homages to the old series. Predictable, but entertaining. Worthy of being a sequel, unlike most of the junk on the summer schedule.
I was about to go see After Earth but I heard it was terrible anyone here seen it yet?
Last I saw it had a 12% on Rottentomatoes. Reviews aren't everything, but 12%?! Some of the reviews are hilarious. Many ridicule it for being nothing more than a vehicle Will Smith forced the studio to create for his untalented and undeserving son.
Plus, it's directed by Shamalyan, which they've done a good job of concealing in the ads.
Other than those factors, it looks great...
The guy who both directed and starred in Primer is named Shane Carruth. His new movie, Upstream Color, is next in my queue. I might actually watch it in 20 minutes. I dug Primer and Upstream Color is supposed to be even better. It's gotten great reviews and the few friends I've talked too who've seen it have loved it. I've twice heard it called an "hypnotic thriller.
I watched an Australian film from 2011, last night, called Hail. Thought it was quite good. It's often discussed with two other great Aussie films from the last few years, Animal Kingdom and The Snowtown Murders. Hail follows a familiar storyline of a guy struggling after getting out of prison. It's a slow burner at first but picks up significantly and gets brutal. I don't mind slower films as long as the story and acting are strong and this was the case with Hail. Plus, once it picks up, you're tense as hell. BTW, if you haven't seen Animal Kingdom or The Snowtown Murders, I highly recommend them. Snowtown is streaming on Netflix. True story about one of Australia's most notorious serial Killers, John Bunting. It's a slow burner too but like Hail, gets really brutal.
Upstream Color was trippy sticks. I enjoyed it though.
for the first time in recent history rotten tomatoes has let me down. friday night i saw an indie film called "future weather" that was rated 92%. what a piece of shit. shitty writing coupled with mediocre acting makes for a long 2 hours. the girls environmentalist views were so simpleton and forced it was uncomfortable.
Saw Fast 6. It was absurd and terrible and awesome. I will gladly watch a Fast and Furious movie at matinee price every two years.
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
The Bucket List. Seen it before but it's not a bad movie to watch. Two classic actors.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Catching up on my 2012 Oscar nominees/winners. Django Unchained, Argo, check. Beasts of the Southern Wild, check. Zero Dark Thirty, check. Lincoln and Life of Pi, check.
Watched Les Miserables this weekend. I knew next to nothing about it and I am definitely not a musicals kinda guy, but I got through it ok. Re-watched a few of the songs in the morning and gotta say that Anne Hathaway number was intense.
Tonight it's gonna be Silver Linings Playbook.
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
Saw it on Saturday. 98% on Rotten Tomatoes for good reason, should get a pile of award nominations
Review: Building on the first two installments in Richard Linklaters well-crafted Before trilogy, Before Midnight offers intelligent,...
Saw "this is the end" last night. It was crude, outrages, creative, and gut-wrenchingly funny! Worth all of the $7.50 I paid, and I would definitely see again!
