  • Stand Up Guys 2012

    ★★★ Watched 21 Dec, 2013

    A nice surprise since I expected it to be terrible. There are definitely terrible moments in here ("chew bubblegum", just to name one), but you can't really hate them. In fact, you kinda gotta love them just because it's Walken and Pacino performing them. Solid, solid performances and they work so well together. In the hands of a better director this could have been fantastic. As it stands, it's solid entertainment with a cool ending. Walken/Pacino are the men.

    Jude Law.. you gotta love the guy.

  • G.I. Joe: Retaliation 2013

    ★★★ Watched 20 Dec, 2013 2

    Fun movie, but the first one felt more special. I wanted more Channing.

  • The Bling Ring 2013

    ★★½ Watched 19 Dec, 2013 6

    Not engaging in the least and borderline boring for most of its running time. I was waiting for a point to be made and none came. That is okay if the movie is at least entertaining. Which it is not. There are a couple of good shots but not a whole lot else.

  • Drinking Buddies 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Dec, 2013 2

    Great little movie. Superb acting all around and just one of the best hangout movies. Great stuff.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • George Washington 2000

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Dec, 2013 4

    I could say so much but words don't get my feelings for this one.

    George Washington is definitely an instant hit.

  • Catfish 2010

    ★★★ Watched 14 Dec, 2013

    The reveal is kind of a letdown but it's an interesting watch. Forgotten in a minute though.

  • Killing Season 2013

    Watched 10 Dec, 2013 4

    Worst of the year for me, I think. Admittedly I haven't watched very many films from 2013 but it's a shitty film nonetheless. Hurts to see De Niro here and it hurts to listen to Travolta's poor poor accent. Ridiculous.

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Dec, 2013 10

    Didn't quite live up to my hopes based on the trailer. After all is over it feels kind of empty. But Stiller did a good job. It looks good and it's a well-meaning film that just wants to take you on an adventure. It's a fun adventure, only it feels a little like you're just going from A to B to C and on on on.

    Sean Penn is badass.

  • Frankenweenie 2012

    ★★★ Watched 08 Dec, 2013

    It looks great but it does kind of feel stretched out. Wasn't surprised to find out there was a short film with the same story.
