Watched This is It last night for the first time.

I loved it. 9/10 If you're an MJ fan. It's a shame the concert never actually got to take off cuz it looked like it would have been absolutely amazing

i finally caught the second and third pirates movies. neither were super duper but they did the fun trick. probably the most comparable series to indiana jones we've seen since, and frankly, they're better.

funny people was another one i just caught (on frickin bluray no less!). the romance dragged too much, but it was definitely appatow's best directing work and maybe the best he's worked on in the last decade. sandler was phenomenal. i was definitely skeptical of him playing lead as a professional comedian, but his sets delivered. i gained a new respect for rogen too. hill... not so much, but he was serviceable. i'll give it pi out of 3.8.

6.5/10 Very entertaining but Guy Ritchie tries just a little too hard to be edgy. Corny plot but some nice fight scenes. RDJ is teriffic as usual. I was bothered a little bit with the sound editing as it was hard to follow the dialogue at times. Rachel McAdams adds nothing in a throw away role but damn I'd like to tap that ass.

A good popcorn flick that at times tries to be more.

Hoop Dreams, this time with the director's commentary on. There was a lot of discussion about the way they craft their documentaries, the troubles of getting a print of it for the bigscreen. Frankly I thought at times they focused a bit too much on the technical aspect of making it, but hey pretty much these 3 guys only made the thing and have 3 hours to talk. I've seen it so many times and at so many different stages of my life there's always scenes that I have a completely different reaction than the last time. From the commentary it was really interesting to hear how the whole thing got started. They asked around about what Chicago playgrounds they should look for players at and were told if there's anyone to talk to it's Earl Smith.

So they meet up with Earl, just planning on going out and seeing what they can find. Then Smith, who's a sort of freelance scout at the time, sees one of the leads, Arthur Agee, playing some pickup. Steve James, the director, said they just knew watching that this was one of the kids they wanted, so they just started filming. Right there, first few hours of scouting the project and shooting's in full swing.

Then Agee goes to St. Joe's, thanks to Earl Smith. The coach there, Pingatore, tells the crew about this freshman he thinks could be the next big thing for the program, William Gates, the other lead.

They planned on Hoop Dreams being maybe a 30 minute PBS show. It became an 8 year labor of love masterfully edited down to 3 hours of every aspect of the American struggle that will be eternally relevant. Ebert's right when he calls it the best film of the 90s.

Infinite/10

Keep in mind...the movie is incredibly gay. It seriously is. So if you have some sort of objection to seeing two men having sex, don't bother.

I've done more than just watch two men have sex so I wasn't worried.

It's still a good movie, though. It really is. If you aren't a bigot, you should give it a watch.

Are you a bigot?
