    Dude, I am so fucking sick of Hangover movies. They just aren't funny anymore.

    Just your regular inspirational bio-pic. I've seen tons of movies just like this one, but at least this one has the guts to throw some actual racist language into it. But like I said, it still comes off rather generic for someone who watches as many movies as I do.

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 2012

    ★½ Watched 22 Jun, 2012

    The movie is too painfully predictable and plastic to enjoy. Also, the writing and acting hit deep trenches that range from laughable to just plain excruciating. Decent idea, but poor execution.

  • Adam and Dog

    Adam and Dog 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Feb, 2013

    With a Roald Dahl-esque artstyle with a plot similar to that of the heart-breaking Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark", it's a thoughtful and charming look into the beginning of the phrase "Man's best friend".

  • A Good Day to Die Hard

    A Good Day to Die Hard 2013

    ★★ Watched 17 Feb, 2013

    The dying days of Die Hard. Unintelligent and simple modern day action movie stuff.

    I'm gonna admit it. I laughed at this movie.

  • Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

    Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Aug, 2012

    Compelling, beautifully shot, and undeniably powerful, "Never Sorry" gives people who may not know Ai Weiwei a in-depth look into the psych of one of the most influential artists in the world. An extremely impressive documentary.

    ★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2012

    What is up with the tone in this? It's not light or anything, but its not dark either. At all. A lot of shit happens and the mood of the movie never EVER changes to reflect that. It's just so boring and monotone. Bleh.

  • Amour

    Amour 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Jan, 2013

    An emotionally powerful movie that has stupendous direction, with its ponderous and dynamic sustained shots and deliberate choice in music and silence.

  • Arbitrage

    Arbitrage 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Jan, 2013

    A fantastic leading performance by Richard Gere sets the tone for this tense and methodical crime thriller. Competent directing and editing let this drama really stretch its legs to get you involved in the story, always wondering how Gere is going to get out of his problem, or if he even will.

  • A Royal Affair

    A Royal Affair 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Jan, 2013

    I was expecting some mushy romance drama, but what I got instead was a political drama. It may not be too bold or surprising, but it's undoubtedly well made with a particularly well-played Christian VII by Mikkel Boe Følsgaard that manages to be comical, cruel, and unpredictable. It's a nice movie and I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the Foreign Language category in a few weeks.
