  • The Upside of Anger 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Aug, 2014

    While this is a nice little movie, its greatest asset is the best Kevin Costner performance I've ever seen. It's like he's human, with a sense of humor even.

  • City of the Living Dead 1980

    ★★ Watched 21 Aug, 2014

Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.

  • Foodfight! 2012

    ½ Watched 15 May, 2013

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.
