    The House


    Pretty mundane movie with a few hits and many more misses. Some of my favorite TV actors make the supporting roles and cameos more interesting.

    Good: Will Farrell pushing a teenage girl made me laugh.

    Bad: Some of the timing is a bit rough.

    Meh: Similar to the Indiana Jones series, we now have a precocious kid in on the adventure. The addition does nothing for me especially with his terrible reaction shots.

    "Y'know, a couple of years ago, this would have seemed really strange to me."

    I watched this movie knowing nothing about it one night and I was hooked. Tarantino has a gift for dialogue like none other. I love the pop culture references, the snappiness of the exchanges and yes the profanity. The soundtrack for the movie was perfect, the juxtaposition…
