    God Bless America 2011

    ★★★★ Added

    I love dark comedy and this was as dark as they come. I like "World's Greatest Dad" a little bit more because I found this film to be a little "preachy" at times with its message where as "World's Greatest Dad" was a little more subtle. Other than my love of dark comedy, another reason I liked this film was that Joel Muray looks and sounds just like a professor I had for Communication Law in college and his personality…

    Great film, one of the few movies I was excited to finally see. It's not for everyone. I have to admit, the ending kind of gave me chills.

    A lot of the same stories from his book, but his stories are always entertaining no matter how many times you hear them.

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Jul, 2012

    I have to admit, I'm a little bias being a hardcore Batman fan, so naturally I loved it, but it may not be for everyone. I don't want to give anything away, but I will tell you this - if you go see it, do not leave your seat because the plot moves very fast! Most films have a lull where you can make a quick bathroom trip without missing anything, however, this is not one of those movies.

    "You have to see this movie, Christian Slater is amazing in it" the sentence I will be saying to everyone for the next 3 to 6 months concerning this movie.

  • Heckler

    Heckler 2007

    ★★★ Watched 21 May, 2012

    This film starts off really well as it explores the nature of rude people that can't shut up during live event. The clips of various performers (mostly comics, but a few singers as well) dealing with annoying hecklers. The film then shifts the spotlight to critics and all the negativity oozing from them. The film makes a valid point about how modern critics no long just inform the public about an artist's work via a humble review, but instead they…

    The Tree of Life 2011

    ★★½ Watched 20 May, 2012

    I’m not really sure how to rate this film because it wasn’t necessarily bad and it’s hard to say that I didn’t like it. It was kind of mesmerizing. There just seemed to be no end to the….weirdness. Overall, I’m not really sure what kind of story it is trying to tell. The first part of the movie is much like one of those “Previously On” montages that fill you in on all the previous happenings so you’re all caught…
