It's a good movie. Sometimes I felt the script was trying too hard. The characters (minus Charlie) got on my nerves at times. I never knew students in the 90s acted like 2010s hipsters in high school. I think besides the music, the 90s weren't really represented that well.

I loved the movie, the themes of mental illness and teenage loneliness were depicted well but some of the dialogue was overbearingly annoying because people didn't really adopt some of the qualities they displayed until a decade later. Seemed like the film wanted to pander to today's progressive, artistic, intellectual crowd a little too blatantly. Overall, it's good work that has important things to say

PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER- 7/10

Yea I mean for me the only thing that really gave away that it was a 90's movie was the cassette tapes.

As for the movie itself, it hit me pretty hard because I really just went through that phase of my life of feeling really alone and experimentation. I think back to high school and now I can recognize kids who were going through the same thing... kids I thought were weird. Really, I just didn't have a clue. I can totally imagine myself being that kid too just really falling for a girl but not having the courage to really say anything and letting some other guy have her... kinda just hoping one day she will fall for me like I fell for her. I have also never really liked to be touched, although for me it's from arousal embarrassment. I get hard like instantaneously if I am touched or even around girls and I am getting the signals that they are opening up. For some reason I felt shameful about it. Now I am like jeez what a gift... no limp d*** here lmao. Even if I am drunk off my ass it doesn't even matter. The older you get, the more you just accept who you are and if people can't understand then so be it.

VHS 2


In the vein of handheld camera movies like Blair Witch, Cloverfield, Quarantine, etc., VHS 2 is about a couple of private investigators looking into the case of this missing college kid. They go to his house, and find a bunch of videotapes. They figure if they watch some of them maybe they'll discover a clue as to the dude's whereabouts.

Each tape is a handheld horror story of other random people. One's an alien abduction, one's a haunting, one's a demonic cult, but my favorite was the zombie one. A guy goes to bike a trail and has a camera mounted on his helmet. He gets attacked by zombies. It was neat to see the whole zombie thing from the first-person, whether it be ripping out someone's intestines or getting stabbed in the face.

Acting ranges from sucky to decent. Effects were solid.

5/10

just watched red 2, I hadn't seen the first one but the girlfriend had and wanted to watch this. The plot was a little bit hard to follow and didn't seem to develop goals for each character very well. Was still a decent mind off action movie though 6/10

I heard that one is terrible, while the first was good.

On the Road 4/10

They ****ed up the part where Kerouac lived with the Hispanic girl and her kid as a farmer which is unforgivable for me. That defines Kerouac in the book for (and the actor who played him wasn't great). Overall I just didn't feel like the film grasped the tone and emotion of the book so I didn't really care for it.

Exactly how I thought. I may have went in with too high of expectations though.

Skyfall 7/10

This movie took the Craig Bond movies to their extreme with the "gritty" feel they are going for. It is certainly the most vulnerable we have ever seen Bond. I enjoyed the first third a lot but it tailed off a bit over the course of the film, probably because Bond failed to hold my interest a bit over the middle third. Mr. Silver was a really good villain but there was a lot of suspension of reality necessary (and not the normally fun type that you run into in Bond films).

They scrapped the traditional Bond movie organization by doing away with any romantic angle and focused on his vulnerabilities with his past and M. Not your usual Bond film but definitely a solid film. Nice bounce back from Quantum Solace.

i saw the first craig bond film... liked it a lot. haven't watched the others. i'll have to check that out.

i watched the second bond film (from russia with love) the other day and it was quaint, but did manage to hold my interest... even just to look back in to that era and style of film-making. plus, connery was simply amazing.

btw, the books themselves are great reads... only a level or two above pulp fiction, but perfect for what they are.
