My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
We Bought a Zoo - good family flick
That's Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln for Spielberg's upcoming flick. This is going to be wonderful.
Meh. Thought it'd be more like High Tension. The high point for me was Elizabeth Olsen's constant cleavage.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - I liked it - was more deep than I anticipated it to be.
The Dark Knight Rises. LOVED IT.

That Was Then and This Is Now- An old movie but is a good one and a great book.
Think Like A Man - There are good moments in the script and the movie features a ton of very talented actors that America only gets to see in Tyler Perry movies. That said, it's really just a two-hour advertisement for Steve Harvey's stupid book. Its predictability, unbelievability, and archetyping aren't quite at Perry level. (At least there's some "Man, you ain't gon get no girl!" sexism in addition to the usual "Girl, you ain't gon get no man!" sexism.) It starts out fairly enjoyable with the crowd-pleasiness but, by the third act, the product integration has reached Full Retard. Not really recommended.
The Bill & Ted movies hold up surprisingly well. And no, I'm absolutely not kidding. Those're good, solid, fun flicks. And honestly, the premise that a couple of idiot burnouts created utopia by penning a power ballad is sort of...endearing I guess. Lennon eat your heart out.
SAN DIMAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!
The Hunger Games - it felt like an "artistic" version of Battle Royale...
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - good British flick
Jaws blu-ray!!!!! Life is good.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
Beasts of the Southern Wild - Awesome.
Had to watch Crocadile Dundee with my daughter just to see her reaction throughout the movie.
Horrible Bosses is available on demand... what's kind of strange is that it's the unrated Director's Cut as opposed to the standard release.
Expendables 2 - I honestly think its better than the first one.... and I loved the first one.

I went for another movie to see the daughter's reactions- Caddy Shack.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Infinity out of ten. I'm a pretty harsh comedy critic, but it's funny every single time. Chevy Chase before he turned into a curmudgeon, Randy Quaid when he was still getting work (that dude's still awesome). Cousin Eddie should just make cameos in every comedy flick driving through in his RV.
I was really excited about the movie, so I felt myself get a little disappointed because I thought I was going to get more of a Katrina story and the plot seemed kind of basic or slow moving. But the film is so wonderfully narrated by the little girl who gives such a great performance it's impossible not to be moved, it just builds on you. There is some well done imagery and I liked the color of everything, but the acting coupled with such innocent yet powerful interpretations of life from this little girl makes for a great watch.
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
Daredevil. (Director's Cut)
I hadn't seen this movie in probably 8 years. I liked it more back then. Numerous nitpicks I won't bother counting up but in the end I just didn't care for this particular stab at a super hero movie. I don't think it's bad but mediocre.
I'll be interested in seeing how they may eventually reboot this, though.
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
