Chronicle 6.5/10

Was fairly entertaining, but unfortunately most of the best parts were already shown in the commercials. F*cking marketers spoiling movies

Watched The Maltese Falcon, 9.7/10
The lead character was a smartass (for real) and then if you were making movies as good as this back in '41 why would you need anything. At all. Anywhere. This just blows nowdays movies out of the narration.
Terrific characters, terrific dialogue, terrific plot and everything. Well, I might not have gotten very deep into it, but this film is rich.

What RidonKs said: well I'm intrigued. Have to watch A Dangerous Method by default, so I surely will, but now I have some expectations. If you guys liked it, it could be good.

Donnie Darko - I honestly don't know how to rate this. Saw it for the first time and I'm still wondering what I just watched.. Is it worth watching this movie multiple times to sort of get it? Or is there not really something to get?

I have a theory but I don't know if it makes any sense at all (spoiler):

Donnie sees the future in a dream and chooses to die himself rather than let the girl die?

I could be waaay off.. Like I said I'm still not sure what I just watched.

Edit; That same choice means the Guru gets away with the kiddy porn though right? That's kinda hard to justify..

watching the commercials would be a good substitute for wasting the 84 mins of your life to anybody considering seeing this

Anger Management. 6.5/10. Some funny moments with Nicholson and Sandler. I absolutely abused my couch and NetFlix yesterday.

Iron Lady - 9/10, gave great insight how a woman in England was able to become the first female prime minister,It showed a lot her accomplishments, struggles in office and family that Margret Thatcher faced. As a history nerd, I found this extremely interesting and would recommend to anyone who likes the history of other countries!

The Devil inside me - 1/10 - One of the worst movies I have EVER seen. Don't watch it.

Tintin - 6/10 - Was hoping for a lot more..dragged on for too long and too predictable..but great special effects.

just back from a valentines day viewing of



i was blown away. words wouldn't do this film justice, but it's a picture perfect 10/10 without a second's thought. and her... same chick as the female lead in the da vinci code apparently, makes sense after the fact... but she was just incredible. one of the most beautiful sincere performances i've ever seen. she just had that curl of a smile that lit up the screen every time she was amused or touched.

i love this movie.

The Woman in Black 7.5/10

Very pleasantly surprised. This wasn't a movie I planned on seeing in theaters but went to the theaters for V-day and it was the best thing on during our time frame. Some horror movies have a decent story, while others are decent with the jump scenes. This movie was a decent story/drama with decent jump scenes.

Dirty Harry: 8/10 - I had only seen it in parts here and there, but last night I sat down and saw the bluray and was pleased. I never got bored watching it. The 70s funk music was sweet and the shootouts were good. Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan was great…..total badass, yet he still gets hurt which adds some realism to the film. Some of his one liners were actually pretty funny. It shows its age a little, but for the most part it holds up pretty well.
