    Despicable Me 2

    ★★★★½

    This being the first Despicable Me film I have seen, it really got me by surprise; I have seen those funny minions elsewhere, in videos and pictures, but I wasn't familiar with their origin.

    It's a really great movie, not just for kids. Fun, witty, what's not to like.
    Highly recommended.

    Favorite film of 2009 for me. If you appreciate british humor (and accent), you will love this film.

    Moneyball

    ★★★★½

    A good movie. The usual Brad Pitterisms are entertaining as usual ( Pitt is one of my favorite actors ), the whole spin on using mathematics and statistical analysis in sports is great(though not original and not the best execution on there) and it was somewhat cool seeing Bobby Kotick playing a part in the film (to the extent he was able to do so, but lets give him a break, he is no actor ).

  • Inglourious Basterds

    Inglourious Basterds

    ★★★★½

    "Each and every man under my command owes me one hundred Nazi scalps. And I want my scalps. And all'yall will git me one hundred Nazi scalps, taken from the heads of one hundred dead Nazis. Or you 'll die tryin!"

    Awesome quotes asides, Christoph Waltz performance and the opening intro alone made it shine.

    My brother (@phaistonian) insisted I watch this as soon as I possible, so I obliged him. I didn't enjoy it that much, all things considered, though I liked the ending (also, Jennifer Morrison is too cute)

  • Margin Call

    Margin Call

    ★★★★½

    My favorite film of 2011.
    Its all about bad-ass characters and wall street machinations.
