Trouble with the Curve
Not a great movie by any means, but I really enjoyed it. It's a slow paced movie, but I really don't mind that as long as the characters are well drawn out.
Officially the weirdest movie I've ever watched. Flash forwards, flash backwards, flash sideways, a little in the future, a little in the past, way in the past, way in the future. Even complete with the future portions having new dialects, or morphed versions of English that made it sound like there was a heavy influx of Cajun in the distant future.... Which led to me wondering 'what did they just say?' several times during the distant future portion.
Django Unchained - Tarantino delivers again!
Watched a couple Kevin Hart standup specials. That dude is hilarious.
Super Troopers 10/10
Decent. Some funny scenes. Felt a little long in some areas. My 3 year old enjoyed it.
Very good. Some intense scary scenes. A very good "found footage" film. Far superior to the later Paranormal Activity movies.
F. Horrible. Not much else to say, but I really wasn't expecting a good movie.
Definite creepiness. Did not like the ending at all. Could have done a better job. D+.
Wife didn't like it. I liked it quite a bit.
Zero Dark Thirty - very well made movie and the last hour was great. Overall it is the type of movie where I admire the acting, the story structure, the screenplay, the directing and the overall smartness level. But I don't love the movie - although as I mentioned the last hour was great.
Of the 9 best picture nominees I would rank them this way. 3 I still have not seen
3) Les Mis
4) Zero dark Thirty
5) Silver Linings
6) Life of Pi
Have not seen, Django, Beasts of Southern Wild or Amour. I would be shocked if any of those three break into my top 4.
Had to pop this in last night:
Robot and Frank
I'm assuming this was a low budget flick.... If so it was pretty good...
Saw Silver Linings this weekend, loved it
I thought Zero Dark Thirty was the best movie of the year, with Silver Linings second, and Django third.
Bradley Cooper was absolutely hysterical in Silver Lining. Mostly because he played it so straight. I really hope he wins Best Actor.
Beasts of the Southern Wild
