  • Smashing Pumpkins: If All Goes Wrong 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    To some degree, this is BIlly Corgan's "Some Kind of Monster", in that it follows the Pumpkins during their lowest received period (Zeitgeist being their St. Anger more or less) on a tour where Billy is trying out new material the very day he writes it and playing 40 minute versions of Gossamer to less than enthused audiences. Billy Corgan's best and worst qualities (intellectual and insightful, but pompous and insecure with a massive chip on his shoulder) are well on display, as are critiques from fans who were hoping to hear some more hits. Includes a bonus disc of a (hitless) concert at the Fillmore.

  • The Wackness 2008

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    A solid start for Levine. A great soundtrack and strong lead performance.

    Goes down bland with an unpleasant aftertaste of raspberries

  • Miroir Noir 2008

    ★★★★ Rewatched 05 Dec, 2014

    Basically just various Arcade Fire live footage, including rehearsal and improvised spaces.

  • Diner 1982

    ★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2014

    A hanging out movie that's all over the place. My interest came and went more than a few times, as it's certainly more fun to hang with some of these characters than others.

  • Runaway Jury 2003

    ★★½ Watched 02 Dec, 2014

    yeah.... thats a Grisham movie.

  • The Exorcist 1973

    Bray Wyattastic.

  • Jennifer's Body 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Dec, 2014

    So what if I said this is underrated.
    And that Megan Fox herself is underrated. Not a very good horror movie, but a strong teen movie.

  • Killing Them Softly 2012

    ★★★½ Rewatched 02 Dec, 2014

    Plays a bit better on rewatch

  • Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 30 Nov, 2014

    I think unlike a lot of people, I came into this knowing a decent amount about the true story (via former WWE and 1996 Olympic champion Kurt Angle who trained at Foxcatcher under David Schultz) to know where it was headed. And besides the fact that the film infers a much tighter timeline than the nearly 10 years in which this story actually spans, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

    Carell's against type casting had me worried,…

  • Waiting for Superman 2010

    ★★ Watched 27 Nov, 2014

    Eye opening but not particularly engaging.
