  • Pitch Perfect

    Pitch Perfect 2012

    ★★★ Watched 30 Sep, 2012

    This was silly, but enjoyable. Some of the humor seemed grafted on just to make the movie seem edgy, when really it's pretty wholesome. A few odd raunchy lines the weren't necessary (I have no problem with raunchy humor, it just didn't fit here) and was all that barfing really needed? And the unnecessary Asian girl stereotypes were annoying. But I liked the music and the performances. A worthwhile bargain matinee with the girls.

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2012

    Loved: the ending, Catwoman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Did not love: 2:45 minute running time, the music, Bane. Always enjoy: Alfred, the bat cave, Morgan Freeman.

  • The Vow

    The Vow 2012

    ★★½ Watched 21 Jul, 2012

    Sappy, predictable, unbelievable even though "inspired by true events." But not as bad as I expected. Kind of sweet, actually. Channing Tatum is growing on me.

  • Hesher

    Hesher 2010

    ★★★ Watched 09 Jul, 2012

    Pretty fucking funny, although It made me very uncomfortable. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was wonderful. Rainn Wilson was unrecognizable (in a good way). And Piper Laurie! I'm not sure who I would recommend this movie to and I can't quite decide whether I liked it or not, but I'm glad I saw it.
