    At first the film just seems like an Exorcist rip off and it is okay, but nothing really that special or interesting. Tony Curtis is really kind of phoning it in, playing his character as pretty one note. Curtis is still like able enough I guess though, and I think once the medicine man shows up he at least has someone to play off of, which is good. It is also after the medicine man comes into the film that…

    Man, do I ever dig this film. Talk about underrated, and under seen, Young Ones is a movie that should be sought out by any means necessary. Its authentic western story set in a water-less future is so appealing and compelling to me, and I think across the board, from the direction to the acting and music, is all tops.

    Jake Paltrow has become a director to be excited about, but given the response to this film and The Good…

    So I am tempted to say that this is the best Neill Blomkamp film of the three that have been made. Much of that could be just riding off the high of having just got out of the movie. I will say that, with the authority of having watched all three of Blomkamp's films in the last twenty four hours, Chappie is the most entertaining, and any negative reviews for this film are absolutely insane.

    Right off the bat, the…

    While Neill Blomkamp might think that he didn't get this film quite right, I sure think he did.

    I think I noticed more on this watch when it wasn't Miles Teller drumming, and did that negatively affect my viewing experience, not at all.

    There are not too many movies that spark the imagination like the doc Into Eternity does. It presents a complicated problem that will take place over a period of time beyond our comprehension. The problem presented is how to properly store nuclear waste for one hundred thousand years. Take a moment and try to comprehend that amount of time. By modern measurement of time, Christ was born two thousand and fifteen years ago. Within that period of time, even how…

    I started this two days ago on a lazy Sunday afternoon, but because it was so lazy I started falling asleep about halfway through. Thus I stopped it and then just went to bed. I sadly couldn't finish it yesterday, on what was a slightly less lazy, but still extremely lazy Monday, as I was busy getting the video announcement out for the upcoming man weekend (#MontanaManWeekend2015) that I participate in. Finally, on what was a busy, but still pretty lazy Tuesday, I finished up the second half of the movie. David Lean is the man, end of story.
