Convelescing my leg, I get the feeling I'll be in here quite a bit.

Watched The Lincoln Lawyer last night after hearing good things. I found it quite enjoyable, even if it was a little on the nose. He sorta pieced it together a little faster than he probably should've, but that's alright. It had a nostalegic feel, because that sort of procedural, courtroom drama with a twist thing was about all they made from 92 - 98 it seemed. And it worked well. Sprinkled with some style, the soundtrack was awesome, and you've got a really good cable rewatch type of flick. I'd give it a low 80s.

Then this morning I found Premium Rush on cable. I'd also give this a low 80s. The semi-jumpy plot was well executed, even if it wasn't much of a plot. More importantly, the bike action was shot really well. The gimmicky freeze frame thought process thing worked, and was done just infrequently enough. The overhead map thing was nice. It just had a nice stylized presentation for this type flick. Micheal Shannon was also a worthwhile foil, adding some dimension that was a bit flat on the character and story front, but again, that wasn't really the point.

Watched the first 20 minutes for the sole purpose of trying to watch the grossest movie out there. Not fucking worth it.

It is certainly up there for me. Now time for you to catch the sequel (not as good, but definitely worth the watch).

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - 7/10

Idk, I love historically based movies. Although, it was pretty predictable.
IMO the end was lame. Pretty generic. I'm not really good at reviewing movies

8.5/10

Been reading how some critics didn't really like how putting a kid in this movie was kinda hamfisted. Well here's my two cents..I love the stuff with the kid, I thought the dialogue was pretty good between tony and him, it maybe alittle too cute for some. But i didn't have a problem with it(kids wide-eyed wonderment, i can relate to, too ),.... Even the mandarin , it thrown me off alittle with the twist there..but I didn't have a problem with it either, because I don't really know anything about him, from the comics Or maybe I'm easily placated, aslong as the director threw lots of vintage tony starks humour. -Also the attempt to humanize him more (suffering from PTSD) was well done too.

/saw it in 3D
//holy smokes the new superman trailer, that came before the movie is gorgeous

Slide Blade. Really good performances, but just way too formulaic to be a real classic for me. Good not great. 6.5-7/10.

I enjoyed that movie, but I entered into it thinking of it as a dark comedy. Not sure what mindset you entered with.

The Intouchables - 9.5/10

The opening scene blew me the **** away. Absolutely loved it. Music was wonderful. The entire film had me laughing the whole time and really feeling what the two men were going through. One of the best films I have ever seen.
