I Bought a Zoo
Good feel good film.
I liked his stuff from the 90s for the most part, but his last several films have been absolutely brutal. I haven't even watched most of them but really the trailers tell you everything you need to know about them.
Cabin in the Woods.
I liked it. I thought the ending fell a little flat though, but it was otherwise pretty good. Wife didn't like it....
Paranormal Activity 4.
Terrible. Couple of good scares. But overall, terrible. I'm not sure why I pay money (although it was a $5 showing) for this crap. But, it is Halloween, and I wanted to see a scary movie. Should have watched Sinister instead.
Really very impressive. I can certainly see people not liking it, however. It's long, disjointed, and can be very confusing. I found some of the sequences boring at first. But I got wrapped up in each one and by the end just wished there'd been more of all of them.
 Also, the film is at times surprisingly, graphically violent, with some nudity and simulated sex thrown in for good measure. That's not a tease, it's really a miniscule amount of a three hour movie. Just wanted to warn the squeamish that it earns its R rating.
And no, I didn't watch the entire thing. I was on the computer and my wife rented it. You do get to see Olivia Mund's boobs in it, so that was nice, and it was at the beginning of the movie. She is so hot. hahaha Other than that, the parts I saw weren't that interesting.
Started to watch Horrible Bosses, but haven't finished just yet. Didn't think I was gonna like it, but it was pretty good from what I saw.
Seed of Chucky
I like cheesy horror films as much as the next guy, but this movie was waaaaay over the top, non-sensical, and just plain stupid.
I also saw Cloud Atlas. There is a lot of good and a lot of bad in this movie. There was a point about an hour and 15 minutes in when I had almost given up on the movie, it was getting tiresome and annoying. Then all of a sudden it picks up speed and draws you in, but I feel you have to wade through a lot of the movie to start to enjoy it. I know if I had watched this at home on Blu-Ray, I never would have finished it unless I was forced too.
The biggest problem was 6 separate and disconnected storylines that for about 2 hours don't seem to be leading anywhere. In many ways it was a jumbled mess. If you are someone who needs to know what is going on at every moment, if you need to know who is who and if you need to feel like the movie is moving towards something - then this movie will drive you crazy. But if you are able to just enjoy the movie as it goes along, because even for the first 2 hours each plotline is interesting, and if you can just sort of let the movie wash over you - you might love this movie.
Overall for me it was a mixed bag, there were times when I was sitting there that I wished it would just end, but I must admit that the last 45 minutes or so are excellent - it turns into an emotional story to a degree that is worth seeing.
I do give the movie makers a ton of credit as it feels completely original (even though it is based upon on a book) , the acting is good, the look of the film is amazing. And I think you will enjoy it if you are patient as you are watching.
That's my Boy
anyone seen Skyfall or Taken 2 yet?
Just kind of a heads up for those who like to purchase blu-rays.... Best Buy has some decent deals at $5 bucks for 'Silence of the Lambs, Jeepers Creepers, Return of the Living Dead, Child's Play, and other Horror flicks right now. Shoot at those prices you're close to a rental.
Sorry for the intrusion.... back to the reviews,
I don't know if I've gone soft or what, but I'm a 28 year old single man with no offspring and I legitimately liked We Bought A Zoo. Sucker for animals I guess. And Scarlett Johannsen.
Going to see Skyfall tonight. So, so excited.
Wreck it Ralph was surprisingly a very good film.
Very entertaining & it's one of those films that while made for kids it has tons of old school ref. in that adults can enjoy more than they can.
Skyfall was excellent, everything I was hoping for. Bardem and Craig were both terrific.
I also really liked Skyfall.
"America, ***** yeah!" The sex scene always makes me laugh so hard.
