IIRC miller's crossing was the first in a string of coen films in which steve buscemi's character died.

within that notable genre, i think his fargo death might have been my favorite.

Or...conspiracy.
it's ISH, so... definitely a conspiracy.

btw, what other coen films have you watched? hopefully you've seen some of the comedy classics, like raising arizona, lebowski, o brother, fargo... even barton fink might belong in there.

Highlander 4.5/10

Pretty damn bad. Probably doesn't help that my first time seeing this movie comes as an adult nearly 30 years after the film came out. Maybe if I saw it closer to the 80s or was a child that was fascinated by swords I would have liked it. Probably doesn't help that I caught the last 20 minutes of The Professional before watching it.

The Secret to my Success

Watched it early this morning while I packed and got ready for work. The movie was surprisingly entertaining. Michael J. Fox was a magnetic personality back in the day.

6.5/10

Noah. Some pretty crazy sh*t and it wasn't anything like the story from the Bible. It was ok. Emma Watson won me over finally. I've never really seen any of her movies, but I like her now.

Captain America: Winter Soldier 9/10

My 2nd favorite of the Avenger movies (Iron Man being #1). It is more exciting than Iron Man, and a great plot as far as these movies go, but there is some dialog that is annoying and general corniness that brings it down just a bit.

Thor: The Dark World - 5.5/10

First time I saw it, it was a crappy cam version, so I decided to watch it again. Seriously the only Marvel Studios movie I've liked is Avengers.

Hopefully that changes after I watch Cap 2 tonight, which looks amazing.

Man of Steel 7.5/10

Had many flaws but I'd be lying if I said it didn't have nice visuals. The ending bugged me a little but it wasn't too bad overall. Some of the lines were just though. Goyer loves writing empty exposition. Hopefully, the Argo writer working on Batman v. Superman uses Goyer's ideas (which are great) but improves on the dialogue.

Final Destination- 5.5/10

Haven't seen this in quite awhile. I was at my boy's house and his girl wanted to watch this and we were blazing so it was whatever.

This movie is really bad now that I watch it. I remember being a fan years and years ago but this shit has aged terribly. The acting is really poor, their lines are mostly cringeworthy, very amateur. I guess I just am no longer part of the aimed demographic becuz this joint was really flimsy watching it years later.

I guess one could look back at it and find entertainment in how '90s it all seemed despite being released in 2000 but yea, I kept critiquing it so much while watching it that I felt kinda like a dick if my ppls were enjoying it lmao

Captain America: The Winter Soldier- 7.8/10

Much better than the first Cap movie and a notch above most of the post Iron Man 1 Marvel flicks. Pretty good action sequences even a lot of it should've resulted in very gruesome deaths. Wished there was more of a focus on the Winter Soldier seeing as how his name is in the title, but he was in like 4 scenes total. The rest of the movie was a convoluted story arc about floating gunships, defense councils, neo nazis, artificial intelligence, etc. He wasn't even the main villain. Guess they're saving his real story/focus for future films. It was recently revealed the actor signed a 9 picture deal. So we'll be seeing a whole lot more of him (probably as Captain America eventually) and that's why he was a glorified under-5 actor who had less screen time than that one Shield/Hydra goon squad leader.
