Me and Orson Welles - 9/10

I loved the film. Richard Linklater didn't disappoint. The direction, screenplay, and score were fantastic. The acting was superb. Christian McKay was remarkable as Orson Welles showing the verve and potency of the real man. Zac Efron, Claire Danes, and Zoe Kazan were also very solid in the portrayal of their characters. The film is a typical Linklater film, one that holds a dialog driven story, which challenges the viewers intellect.

Absolutely loved it..

I watched The Slammin Salmon by Broken Lizard the other night.... and it was pretty damn awful. There were a few silly one-liners, but for the most part it was pretty much just low-brow gags and s*it-jokes.

I probably would have rated it lower if not for the role Michael Clarke Duncan played, and the inclusion of Robin Scherbotzky.

I heard it was great too. My friend who saw it said Efron displayed some actual acting chops in the movie.

Well, Kevin Smith didn't write it... And totally did it for money. I didn't watch it because I knew it would suck.

At least he can put the money towards his next god movie.

I rather liked The Slammin' Salmon. Yeah, it's stupid humor, but that's kinda the point. It's by the same guys who did Super Troopers, so if you like that, you'll like Slammin' Salmon.

Rating: I want my f*cking money back. Hit Girl was the only redeeming quality of this steaming pile of Tarantino-wannabe bullshit.

just re-watched "lonley are the brave" a movie based on ed abbey's first book "the brave cowboy". While the book is better and draws out the issues underlying jack burn's reluctance to incorporate into the "modern world", the movie is great as well. Kirk Douglas claims it was his favorite movie he ever did and walter mathieu's understated humor as the sheriff is a great fit. Tragic ending with the anti-hero. Well before its time in term of topic, the cinematography is classic BnW western, which works alright.

I was just recently able to find this on dvd.
8/10

Ive seen the original. Its funny, though dude from firefly wasnt great IMO. Overall a very entertaining movie. maybe 6-7/10.

as for broken lizard, they have some terrible movies. Puddle Cruisers and Club Dread were atrocious. Beerfest was funny but not all that inventive. SuperTroopers is on another level than the rest of their shit.

Couples Retreat.

It was nearly two hours of nothingness. I might have laughed twice. Horrible movie. I thought Vince Vaughn would have brought me something a little better than that.

3/10

Fairly slow paced, but a very well made movie.

7/10.

Rewatched after a good 7-8 years, mind-blowing film. 10/10.

A Nightmare on Elm Street: 8/10; great 80's horror, but no boobies.

They Died With Their Boots On (1941): 6.5/10; A great Errol Flynn movie where he plays a Vince-Vaughnish fast talking Custer. Holds up well for it's age.

A Nightmare on Elm Street II: 5.5/10; A more existential take than the first, but little explanation and meaning.

Some Like It Hot (1959): 9/10; A classic comedy that holds up extraordinarily well today. Especially the dialog.

Fantastic Mr. Fox: 9/10; A wonderful take on a kids story with plenty of humor for adults.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: 7/10; Back to the roots of the original, and even bringing in some of the original cast. Laurence Fishburne is a nice addition.
