  • The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • I Sell The Dead 2008

    ★★★½ Added

    Dark comedy with a nice atmosphere and good casting. I realize I appreciate any horror with a good pub scene. Just a great place for town gossip about the ghastly goings on. I really want to visit a pub one day.

    YAY Angus Scrimm from Phantasm. This reminds you of Evil Dead and Phantasm a bit.

    Brenda Cooney's accent scares me. If a woman talked to me like that she could probably get anything she wanted from me. She'd ask…

  • Melanie Comarcho: Hello! 2012

    ★★½ Added

    Well I seem to find myself watching male comedians mostly, so I decided I'd give a female comedian a try..again...Viewing equality! What I liked about her is she avoided talking about her therapist and what pills she's taking for her conditions. You know that stuff every female comedian talks about. But then there was too much conversation on penis size or lack thereof. She also seemed a bit nervous as this was her first special I think, but it just resulted in a little flubbing. She needs to tweak this act, make it a little funnier and Increase the amount of topics she covers.

    Smart, funny, and as an American slightly depressing :]

  • Cuban Fury 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    I laughed a bit more than I suspected I might while watching this.
    Some funny lines
    Rashida Jones favors the Olsen twins

  • The Graduate 1967

    ★★★★½ Added

    My thought process while watching this for the first time was trying to figure out the characters motivation. I never understand choosing to cheat on someone versus just saying okay this is not working and pursuing the life you want, or is it the ego involved, is it the excitement of knowing you're making a fool out of someone else, you could be caught at any moment. Erm Mrs Robinson was hotter than Elaine. But she's married and full of…

  • Parker 2013

    ★★★ Added

    Its clichéd up the wazoo, But I was enjoying it after a bit and mainly because I liked Jennifer Lopez acting. She's so natural in here, not at all bumpy like some music stars who have turned actress. In fact she's able to deliver without the cringing moments I get watching Janet Jackson and Jennifer Hudson. I watched this because I really liked Homefront. Anyone noticed how good Statham is on all hand to hand combat scenes.

  • The Colony 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    Not sure what you Letterboxd peeps expected. What is presented here is a very solid B scifi action romp. Okay it's nothing new and I felt the 28 Days Later dna pouring out of it sometimes, but that's not a bad thing. We get Paxton being Paxton and Fishburne as a likeable hardcore kick butt character, decent cast. Not deep, but entertaining.

  • D3: The Mighty Ducks 1996

    ★★★★ Added

    I may deviate from the crowd as I think this is just as good as the other two films. They addressed a big issue I had with part 2, they brought back Charlie's mom and even brought back Hans. Emilio is not in here as much, but they gave him some good scenes when he is and the new coach actually fits in well. I'm glad Julie the cat finally gets a chance to goalie, we knew earlier on she was better than Goldberg.

  • Lewis Black: Old Yeller - Live at the Borgata 2013

    ★★★ Added

    Profanity just for the sake of profanity is boring to me. I didn't laugh that much watching this, but I did like his politics and social commentary. It's always great to know there are other people out there thinking of how crazy the system is.
