They play movies that have already made their run through normal theaters, and before they hit DVD.

Interesting spin on the highschool love triangle concept, and its not too lovey dovey or cheesy or long. Unfortunately no time travel paradoxes happen.

6.5/10

I think there are dollar cinemas (or close to that) in London. I seem to recall a theatre between Chinatown and Leicester square that plays movies almost out on DVD for cheap.

Wanted to avoid watching this one because the first is one of my personal favorites and it was an entirely new cast (even changed the voice of Rusty Nails ) , so going in, I was expecting a stinker and had no expectations from it and that was the right mindset to use. Everything was predictable and your typical movie and Rusty went from being a pretty genius killer to acting on impulse, which killed it. Ending was also retarded.

4.5/10

9/10

Yes, this is a fan favorite, but I finally got around to seeing this masterpiece and it's probably the most gripping WWII movie I've seen next to Saving Private Ryan. Despite this entire movie being filmed in a bunker, the characters and acting provide enough emotion to make this a memorable epic. Definitely recommend to those historians out there and will add it to my DVD collection down the line.

Watched some old comedies I never saw or didn't finish.

Anchorman: 6.5/10
There was no real big plot in this one but funny moments throughout. Best moment "Brick where'd you get that hand grenade?"

Knocked up: 7/10
Good story for a comedy. Dude's friends were hilarious especially Jonah Hill lol.

Little Miss Sunshine: 6/10
Characters were interesting and showed some real F'd up ones. I liked the ending even though she didn't win.

I love you, man: 8/10
Paul Rudd was perfect for this role it fit him great. Cool to see the two dudes becoming friends. Best part is when he walks in at the wedding with his posse lol weirdest group of people ever. Even the gay dude that kissed him LMAO.

Get Smart: 6.5/10
Watched part of this before. Steve Carell was gold as usual. Anne Hathaway was so F#$%#$ HOT! Especially the part where she going through the lasers in that dress.

Observe and Report: 6.5/10
The pervert was sorta disturbing but it was an OK comedy. Half the time I couldn't tell if it was a joke or his awkward mental state lol.

Zack and Miri make a porno: 7/10
I liked this one cause of how unlikely this would actually be in real life. Seth Rogen was funny as usual and the chick was hot. Black dude provided some great lines LOL.

Kingpin...10/10

One of the best comedies ever made. Doesn't get the credit it deserves. Great story, perfect cast. This movie is a classis, and in my top 10 comedies of all time if not higher.

I watched The Blind Side the other night... My god, was it putrid.

My expectations were pretty low, because Hollywood and sports (especially football) generally add up to disappointment. Then, throw in Bullock -- who I have never been a fan of and am quite easily annoyed by -- and it is a recipe for disaster.

But, even my worst fears couldn't have prepared me for that steaming pile of dog sh!t. How that movie and, more specifically, Bullock were up for or won any major awards is something that I will never understand.

*******SPOILERS*****

First of all, they portray Michael Oher, a real person that is a very good NFL player, as a total and complete retard. I mean... his role is comparable to the big, magical prisoner in Green Mile. Oher doesn't say a word for the first hour of the movie and every other character -- especially Bullock -- speaks to him as if he is the dumbest person on the face of the planet.

I was honestly embarrassed for the real Oher in that he had to actually sit through a movie whose screenplay was clearly written under the assumption that he is a mongoloid. It came as no surprise, of course, that Oher has been an outspoken critic of the film, which I didn't know until I researched it after viewing.

Secondly, the storyline was the most nonsensical thing that I have ever seen. Oher didn't know how to play football when he stepped onto the practice field his senior year in high school. His coach didn't bother to teach him any technique, but rather made fun of Oher.

It wasn't until Bullock's son, who was about 8 years old, worked with Oher after practice, made him run myriad of complicated drills, and basically turned him into a beast in one evening. The high school coach is completely shocked the next day in practice when Oher is playing like a seasoned veteran of the sport.... All thanks to the cute little white kid.

The child then puts on his director/editor/producer/cameraman hat and records all of Oher's games and puts together a professional recruiting video. He then sends the video out to all high profile colleges and, the next thing you know, the likes of Nick Saban and Lou Holtz (yes... Holtz) are showing up at his house to recruit him.

Basically, Oher was a very stupid but very loyal dog that a child trained to be a football player and then, the same child, made him famous. The film gives Oher zero credit for any of his actual, real-life accomplishments.



The movie just went from bad to worse at that point... I don't even remember exactly what happened, but I do recall Bullock showing up in the projects and threatening to kill several drug-dealing thugs... And, of course, they backed down sheepishly.

It ended with some half-a$$ed investigation by the NCAA on recruiting violations that was never completely explained away.

Horrible movie.

I give it... 1/10 and that is being kind.

It really annoys me when movies that are really bad get critical acclaim. Throw in the fact that the movie seemed intent on embarrassing the real Oher and glorifying the pristine, white family... I don't know... It rubbed me the wrong way.

By the end of the movie, I was actually mad. Any film that can be so inept that it makes me visibly angry is getting no better than a 1/10.
