  • The Heartbreak Kid 2007

    ★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    It's a shame The Heartbreak Kid is too long, unnecessarily crude at times, and lacking real laughs for prolonged periods of time, but there is a solid comedy hidden somewhere deep in here among all that excess.

    Ben Stiller delivers a Ben Stiller comedy performance, from the awkward Ben to the completely freaking out Ben, it's all in here and your enjoyment of this film depends on how much of his performance you are able to stomach. You also get…

  • Out of Time 2003

    It's probably good David Fincher made Alien 3 if only to confirm the fact that he is human after all.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here. I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…
