  • The Jerk 1979

    ★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2014 11

    When it comes to The Jerk I think you really have to like Steve Martin to enjoy it and I've been kind of indifferent about him. He's been in movies I've liked over the years but nothing that I've loved. Much like a real life jerk I found him more annoying in this film than funny.

    Raised by a poor black family, Navin (Steve Martin) is an idiotic man who struggles through life until he strikes it rich on an…

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

  • The Butler 2013

    ★★½ Watched 14 Apr, 2014 7

    Going into Lee Daniels' The Butler something about it bothered me. It's the title. I'd be fine with just The Butler, but most places you look it's Lee Daniels' The Butler. It's pretty damn pretentious and a little obnoxious for Mr. Daniels to put his name in the title. Especially in the title of a movie based on a true story that had such an impact on history. Lee Daniels directed the film. I know it's his film because just…

  • GasLand Part II 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Apr, 2014

    Jesus fracking Christ! Fuck fracking, fuck big oil, fuck big gas, fuck lobbyists, and most importantly FUCK these evil fucking companies that are ruining people's lives. The sheer level of lying and deceit by this companies makes me pyhsically ill.

    I don't want to review this film. It's not perfect neither part one or part two is, but the subject matter is so important I think every one should see them. Some docs are done for entertainment. Sure they have…

  • GasLand 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2014

    GasLand is a fantastic documentary that offers damning proof that the process of hydraulic fracturing "fracking" is polluting the water supply, the air, and making animals and people very sick. Of course the companies responsible deny it, all in their quest for the almighty dollar. It's amazing how little these money hungry companies care about people when it can fill their wallets. You hear the phrase "money is the root of all evil" most of your life and if you…

    "Mattie Fae, we're gonna to get in that car and go home. And if you say one more mean thing to that boy I'm gonna kick your fat Irish ass into the highway."
    -Charlie Aiken

    Tracy Letts is a twisted man, who seems to have his finger on the pulse of white trash America. This is now the third film I've seen based on one of his plays. The other two being Bug and Killer Joe. Both films I really…

  • Crying Fist 2005

    ★★★ Watched 08 Apr, 2014

    If my memory serves correct, this is the lowest I've rated a South Korean film in awhile. I tend to love films from that country. Unfortunately the story in Crying Fist didn't completely grab me, but it's still a pretty good film.

    This is the story of Gang Tae-shik (Min-sik Choi), a 43 year old former boxing silver medalist in the Asian games, and Yoo Sang-hwan (Seung-beom Ryu) a troubled youth who takes up boxing in prison. Tae-shik has a…

  • The Illusionist 2010

    ★★½ Watched 07 Apr, 2014 5

    I guess I don't have much to say about this one other than I don't get why it's so well liked. The animation is good, but it felt like a long short film and I was bored for the majority of the 80 minute runtime. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for it or maybe it just wasn't for me. Either way it was just an average film in my opinion.
