Zack and Miri Make a Porno

thought it was pretty funny and laughed out loud hard several times. I think it got hurt from some Seth Rogan backlash although it is clearly too racy for large swaths of this country with just how bawdy the dialogue got and how it doesn't give a damn if you are a homophobe. It maybe could have been edited down a bit tighter b/c it lost steam once the inevitable romcom love issue came up.

I will say I doubt I could watch it with my parents or youngest sister though.

7.5/10


i'd say if you like Kevin Smith films you'll like this.

Decided to watch "Taken." Whoever said it was 90%+...that's laughable. Serviceable thriller, nothing more, nothing less. 71%.

Liked how Taken seemed at least IMO more practical than most action movies. Skipping the cliche dialogue and just beating the crap/shooting people.

Always wondered why people wouldn't use that approach more often when dealing with hostage situations (ala the final scene).

Take Liam Neeson out of Taken and put in say, Steven Seagal, and it's the same movie. The perception of Neeson is not the reality (in this flick). Wasn't there a part where he's handcuffed to a ceiling pipe and he superman breaks it off, knocking a dude out in the process?

I watched Final Fantasy TSW last night.

The story is a bit average. But it looks great to this day, the design is fantastic and has some of the best voice acting out there. It got hated on for no good reason.

8/10

Ehh, yes and no. Although there weren't any really serious acting chops for Neeson in this, he did it one hell of a lot better than Seagal ever could have. I agree it became over-the-top pretty quickly, but Seagal? C'mon now.

Just watched Witness for the Prosecution on TCM for the first time.

You could predict the ending a few minutes before the twist, but I love endings like that.

8/10.

I saw about half of it. The theater that I saw it in had one of the spools detach (or something like that) and they gave everyone watching a free pass for a movie at another date and I never felt the urge to finish seeing it. One of the reasons for that is, it's kind of a by the numbers Western. If you're familiar with the genre, then you've see the movie before (unless they did something out of the ordinary in the last 30 to 40 minutes or so, but I doubt it). If you really like Westerns, I doubt it will disappoint you.

I saw it and liked it pretty good. It's got a flaw in that it's not as good as either of the two westerns from last year, 3:10 to Yuma, or, especially, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

Part of it's problem is that it can't seem to decide where it stands in the genre. It's not nearly as spaghetti as 3:10, yet lacks the darker edge of Jesse James. It's kind of caught in the middle. It's also got a terrible love interest/triangle written into it with the insufferably annoying Rene Zelwegger.
It's shot really well. It has a lot of that washed out desolate Western look. A lot of long shots paired with tight one shots that make a wester feel like a real western. The general story is pretty interesting. Traveling sheriffs for hire. Not so much the clean up the town posse, but rather a posse for hire from town to town, bound by an odd moral code. But so much of that is lost on the love interest trail that feels like it was put in to draw in more of an audience.
Definitely worth seeing, but if you're choosing between that or the two movies from last year, I'd suggest seeing them first.

I finally got around to watching Pulp Fiction.

It's a great movie, if it were any ordinary director directing it, I feel like it would have just an 'average' movie, however, the way Tarantino put the movie together and organized really was exceptional.

I'd give it a 10/10.
