Exceeded my expectations.
Exceeded my expectations.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop
Traitor: Actually not bad. Wasn't the best film I have ever seen but it wasn't bad either. I am not sure why Steve Martin came up with this idea but I guess it worked.
Burn after reading: Hated it. In fact this is one film that I can honestly say that I didn't even watch all the way through. I realize that the Cohen Brothers are considered wizards of this type of film making but I just don't get it. I have never seen a film from them that I liked and did not consider a snoozefest.
W.: Meh, considering who made it I was deeply suprised that they portrayed former President Bush in as good a light as they did. I won't discuss the politics of this here because, well you know why. But I will say this that the only thing missing from former V.P. Cheney was a black top hat, cape and a handlebar mustache.
Zach & Miri Make a Porno
Just OK as romantic comedies go. Had a few chuckles. Watched a few of the deleted scenes (there were over 30 - watch 'em all and you get another movie) and there were a couple they should have left in - particularly the auditions (maybe not all of them but more). The best part overall may have been the way Banks and Rogan kept having guy talk with each other all the way through.
As to Fargo, I thought it was OK, but, like most Coen Brothers movies, it tended to be a little too self-consciously quirky. I do think they've made some movies I've really liked, including "O Brother", "The Big Lebowski", and "No Country for Old Men" was well made in every way, though I'm very conflicted about it.
As to W, I'm not sure when I'll watch it. I'm not a huge fan of Oliver Stone, who I consider to either be dishonest or a complete whack job...possibly both.
Dirty Harry...though I don't know which one. It's the one with the exploding toy cars (I'm assuming it's one of the later ones)
No have no doubt about not liking it. Might not have been in the mood but it was long, very story driven and just too much talking.
It was pretty hokey and very predictable. Just needed to waste time on a 15 hour flight.
Body of Lies
Religulous: Really, really enjoyed it.
The Heartbreak Kid: I had already seen this on television but had no idea what I was watching at the time. About half-way through viewing it this time around, I realized that I had seen the movie already...but watched it to the end. It's not bad.
Fargo is an alltime classic. Strangly though, I liked it better the second and third time I watched it. It is one of those movies where certain scenes and performances are classics.
Zach & Miri Make a Porno - I have to say it was probably the dirtiest movie I've ever seen.
But did you like it at all?
The curious case of Benjamin Button
Most boring movie ever.
I was pleasantly surprised.
Slumdog Millionaire... amazing
