  • Get on Up 2014

    ★★★ Watched 18 Jan, 2015

    Half of the movie dares to be unexpected: a biopic that highlights the crazy, over-the-hill days, breaks the forth wall and has a fast pace. Sadly, that good half is randomly intercut with the slow traditional childhood trauma flashback stuff.

  • While You Were Sleeping 1995

    ★½ Watched 18 Jan, 2015

    Why do they keep calling them romantic comedies if they're neither romantic nor funny? They should call them, "Increasingly hard to believe premises where beautiful people resist sleeping with each other due to ridiculous plot contrivances."

    ★★★ Watched 06 Jun, 2012

    Ever say to yourself "I wish there were a mod romcom about mathematical analog code cracking with punchcards and LSD"?

  • Torque 2004

    ★★½ Watched 12 Sep, 2014

    Oh, it's trying to both satirize action racing pictures and be an action racing picture. There's an over-the-top sense of humor there. There's also lots of explosions of expensive bikes, cars, props. But it ends up feeling like you've watched two hours of a Pepsi commercial dreamed up by Kid Rock.

    I loved DETENTION. I can see inklings of the brilliance of DETENTION in this. But this is certainly no DETENTION.
