just another coen masterpiece, my review is in here somewhere. the characters and just how beautifully observed it is- also very well shot as always- make it a 9.5/10 for me.

i watched crazy heart tonight, im shocked its been hardley discussed on here. bridges is clearly going to win best actor, even by his standards it was an increadible performance. such a mature, controlled piece of acting, the film aside from that was solid, restrained and had a great soundtrack
8/10

Saw this recently as well. I'd give it a 9, but I agree with your review.

Year One

Disappointing. I didn't expect it to be high art but it may as well have been one of those other random parody flicks written by those dudes that do crap like Epic Movie with some more known actors. Had some funny parts but the scenes were strung together very poorly. Its sad how far Harold Ramis has fallen. The whole thing felt choppy. It seemed like they would set up jokes that never occurred. David Cross was kind of grating throughout.

4/10

Better than Envy but that ain't saying much.

Walken in Envy made it worth it. If there were a DVD with just his scenes I'd rent it.

**SPOILERS AHEAD**

Wow, I've been sleeping on this one for a while. Glad I finally got a chance to see it. This was a movie that operated on two levels- one in a pretty violent and brutal reality and the other in a more artsy spiritual realm. At first I honestly thought it would be a film about a guy's redemption- he goes to jail, he's forced to kill someone, then he begins to learn to read and write, seems to be haunted by his actions, etc. but it ended being more a character arc like Michael Corleone in that he starts out (relatively) innocent and progressively becomes more ruthless, conniving, indifferent to death/murder until he completely transforms from a witless kid into a underworld kingpin. I want to watch it again so I can get a better understanding of what the director/writer was trying to convey with the 'prophet' scenes- I couldn't tell if it was more symbolic of events (ie, Deer caught in headlights) or meant to be taken as Malik having literal precognitive abilities. Also I was originally under the impression that Reyeb's 'ghost' was supposed to be his conscience that would lead him to spiritual and religious change/growth, but after a while it was clear 'he' was more of an accomplice than anything.

Anyway, very good, entertaining, well-written and directed film. Definitely going to watch it again.

7.5/10

Not Scorsese's best, but still a very good film. Two detectives are investigating a case of a missing patient at an insane asylum. When a hurricane hits, the detectives begin to suspect that the people at the institution are trying to hide a conspiracy. Plenty of twists along the way.

The ending left me feeling kind of odd, but overall I enjoyed it. Too bad it didn't get a nomination for Best Picture, it deserved it.

It could've been released in time for Oscars. That it was delayed speaks volumes of the producers' confidence of its performance.

2012. i give it a 4/10. man, what a horrible movie.

the extended family part seemed like a good thing until they go and kill off the stepdad, only to have the real dad hook up w/ the mom later. makes me wonder if the director/screenwriter had a bad family experience or something.

Yeah i know, i remember reading somewhere that it had something to do with marketing conflicts and that Leo had scheduling conflicts or something. You maybe right though cause what i read sounded like possible bs.
