Honestly, based on your taste in stuff I think you'd really like them. Some people think they're pretentious and stupid though.

They're kind of like a mix between My Dinner With Andre and Eternal Sunshine.

AMERICAN MOVIE


Hilarious documentary bout a middle aged eccentric 'loser' who wants to complete his short film with the help of hopeless, drug-destroyed friends & loyal family including his hilarious uncle who is pessimistic about the success yet still provides funding.

They are from Milwaukee, Wisconsin so the accents alone are entertaining but the filmmaker is just an underachiever with a passion for making his film.

It's gold- hilarious & still has heart. I highly recommend, esp if u enjoy documentaries that are 'slice of life' bout people who would generally not get much attention.

This film is highly quotable in an odd way
8.8/10

Cedar Rapids- 7.5/10 - A great little comedy flick that'll make you feel good. It's fairly predictable but funny, honest, and quirky. I enjoyed it.

Watched a bunch of espn docs...fab five, the announcement, and **** can't remember any more... all good stuff.

Seven Psychopaths - 5/10... I honestly thought this was a giant waste of time.

Craigslist Joe - 6/10 - good idea and had heart but not very well produced.

Kick Ass 2

Whatever, it had its moments. Im not a pacificist but the violence in this movie was just lame, especially the attempted rape scene.

3.9/10

Fruitvale Station- 8.5/10

After a summer of mostly terrible and disappointing bloated CGI big budget crapfests, it was refreshing to see a smaller scale movie (only cost $900K to make) deliver. Ryan Coogler just made a name for himself with his debut and I look forward to seeing what he will accomplish with more seasoning and experience. The acting was solid all around, especially by Jordan aka Wallace. I liked how they just mostly told the story and let it play out organically without using cheesy tactics to try to pull at the audience's heartstrings. They showed the good and the bad of Oscar Grant and didn't try to paint him as an infallable saint, just as what he was- a human being who had flaws but was trying to get himself together for the people he loved. Even though you know how it will all end, the finale still packs a big emotional punch.

Coogler and Jordan will be teaming up again to do 'Creed' with Jordan playing the grandson of Rocky Balboa's one time nemesis and later best friend. Idea sounds ridiculous at first glance, but I'm willing to keep an open mind about it.

it felt like a kids movie, but with dick jokes and gory violence

the young girl is the only redeeming tihng in the movie.

and didnt they say that she was 15, and the male lead was 18, and they kissed at the end!?

Presumed Innocent: 6/10. Interesting but saw the twist coming. Also the unnecessarily graphic Harrison Ford sex scenes were just sorta weird. I really don't need to see him sucking on some broad's nipple.

Primal Fear: 6/10. Norton and Gere were good, but again we all saw that twist coming.

Elysium 6/10

Nice story, bland delivery. Too much slow motion and predictable plot. Maybe i'm expecting a bit too much since its has the same director that made district 9.

Pacific Rim 4/10

Man, what a pile of trash. Made me feel not as bad about Transformers. At least Transformers knew it was a silly concept and made light of it. Pacific Rim was just stupid all around. Idris gave it his best despite a poor script.
