    I never thought any movie could make me hate Alan Tudyk as much as I love him as an actor.

    Seeing as I don't like baseball, I never thought I'd like a baseball movie.

    If only it wasn't sappier and cornier and clichéd as a wannabe uplifting Spielberg film.

  • Blue Jasmine 2013

    ★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2014 10

    Oh how the mighty have fallen.

    It was already evident in the 90's that Woody Allen's abilities as both a writer and a director have been declining steadily. Then, he married his adopted daughter. Then there were allegations of him molesting his biological daughter. Film wise, there was a shred of hope once Midnight in Paris came out. Then he made Blue Jasmine. It seems as though Woody Allen has taken a turn for the worse both behind the camera…

  • Before Midnight 2013

    ★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2014 10

    This film is a lot like Jesse’s third book...ambitious and too long.

    The only difference is unlike Jesse’s book, this is not the best in the series. This is the most disappointing.

    What made Before Sunrise so great is that it was just two strangers spending a day together in hopes of finding some kind of chemistry. What made Before Sunset even better was the fact we saw those same characters who have established separate lives 9 years later and…

  • Food, Inc. 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Feb, 2014

    The worst thing I could have done before eating this was eat a beef Slim Jim.

    I'm never eating beef again.

    *watch me eat another beef slim jim next week when I forget all about this...*

  • Summer of Sam 1999

    ★★½ Watched 01 Feb, 2014

    The sheer highlight of this movie is watching a talking dog tell the serial killer to "Kill. Kill! KILL!"

    Who knew Spike Lee could make comedy gold?

  • The Fifth Estate 2013

    Watched 31 Jan, 2014 4

    This film is the prime example of why I keep saying 2013 was a mediocre year for film.

    Sure, we had a lot of masterpieces come out in the last 2 months (as usual with Oscar season) but does it make up for the 10 months of mediocrity-crap we put up with? Yeah, there were some gems sprinkled every now and again but for the most part, 2013 consisted of movies that either were completely shite or films that showed…

  • Ride Along 2014

    ★★ Watched 25 Jan, 2014

    The choice is ride all the fuck out to see this when its freezing cold and pouring snow or die.

    Ride or die?

    I'm choosing die next time.

  • EDtv 1999

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2014

    Do you think that if more people saw this movie and actually paid attention to what it was saying, do you think reality tv would be as big of a deal as it is today?

  • Justice League: War 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Jan, 2014

    DC finally made their own Avengers.

    Yes, I know comparing an animated film to arguably the greatest superhero film ever sounds like blasphemy, but I honestly think that if the live action JLA movie is anything like this in terms of characters, story, and action, then that has potentially to be the very best superhero movie ever. This was just about perfect. From the dialogue (Wonder Woman's characterization especially was the best I've ever seen on screen; not to mention…

    So apparently I'm racist because I said the word "nigga". That's a lie. I love my people. Sometimes. I loved this movie. I cried at the end, therefore I cannot possibly be a racist against my own people. Ya'll niggas tripping, bruh.

    Oops, I did it again.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★★ Added 26

    According to Leo DiCaprio, this is the companion piece to his last couple films (Great Gatsby, Django Unchained) and creates a trilogy about American men of three different generations trying to gain and keep what they value as wealth, power, or both. I'm sure it'll be interesting to watch these three films in a row with that in mind, but on its own, Wolf of Wall Street is indeed a wolf high on ludes that has a biting commentary/satire on the American dream.

    Say what you will be how Sly Stallone is getting too old for this shit or how his movies are just getting worse and worse.

    No matter what, I still can not understand what the fuck he's saying in these movies.
