  • Lincoln

    Lincoln 2012

    ★★ Watched 28 Feb, 2013

    So people really like this movie?
    I thought this was so incredibly boring. This was a free in-flight movie on my way to Florida and I honestly think that watching the back of someone's head while on the plane would have been more entertaining. I had the chance to rewatch "The Master" or see "Lincoln." Within the first 45 minutes I was regretting my decision. I guess Daniel Day Lewis was good but you can't have one good performance to…

  • Mama

    Mama 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jan, 2013

    I’m really not sure how Jessica Chastain has had time to be in every movie these last two years. Her agent must be really, really busy. That being said, the movie was okay for a horror film. I’m not sure there are any modern horror films that compare to the classics. I thought it was an interesting storyline that was not as successful as its potential could have been. Ghost of a mental patient from the 1800s obsessed with finding…

Without question, Stanley Kubrick has to be the most talented director in cinema’s history. Kubrick is not only innovative with his directing, he can tell a story in a way that is so captivating. “2001: A Space Odessey” was made in 1968;…

  • I Love You Phillip Morris

    I Love You Phillip Morris 2009

    ★★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2012 3

    I enjoyed this film very much. The outlandish storyline made me look up the validity of plot points and the movie is surprising accurate. Jim Carrey shines as Steven Russell; in fact, I think this may be the best performance of his career. McGregor who plays Phillip Morris, also does a great job portraying a submissive, gentle natured love struck individual. Both characters are so likeable, the audience finds themselves routing for them to be together (outside of jail, of course). It’s “Brokeback Mountain” meets “Catch Me if You Can” with an undercurrent of "Bad Santa" like humor and I loved every minute of it.
