Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

I'm a big Will Ferrell fan, so I was hoping this would match or surpass the genius of Anchorman. The movie has about 34 types of funny going for it, namely subversive, random, in-your-face, and some gags. I loved it, Sacha Baron Cohen's character probably made me laugh the hardest with his ridiculous accent. The best part of the movie is the Baby Jesus prayer at the dinner table.

It's still a notch or two below Anchorman, but maybe after repeated viewings it might reach it, still, the funniest movie on '06 so far for me

8/10

I'm off to watch V for Vendetta tonight

There really aren't many movies like this one. Superb acting, directing, dialogue, plot, subcontext, food even tasted better after it. Not a big Uma Thurman or Jude Law fan, but they're great here. Watch this movie sometime in the future, it's well worth the rental / time. The only problem is its rewatchability, and the plot requires thought, so it's a Mood Movie.

8/10

Strangers with Candy

Dude, if you're lucky enough to have this movie come near you, go see it. Absolutely hysterical. Of course the best part was Stephen Colbert (who is gay with the art teacher, Paul Dinello) but really the entire movie was hilarious. If you liked Napolean Dynamite, you'd probably like this (and unlike Dynamite, not everyone will be quoting it all the time!! )

9.47/10

the thin man 5/10

i can only think of three movies based on books or short stories that i've actually enjoyed. i don't care whether it's 1930s hollywood or today, don't change 80% of the plot and characters and still insist on calling the movie by the same name.

Pirates of the Caribbean 4/10


Good special effects

At times, I thought I was watching an ad for the Disneyland ride

The New Kids 5/10

Cheesy 80's horror flick. Entertaining, though

I completely need to see this. Amy Sedaris is a goddess, and the TV show is a scream!

V For Vendetta

7.5/10

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I enjoyed the movie more than I expected.

Inside Man

8/10

LOVED it! I'm not a Denzel Washington fan, but everyone else in this was awesome. I loved Jodie Foster playing against type, and loved all the little twists in the plot.

I just got back from seeing this...funny stuff

For a while, I thought the Ricky Bobby character might have been modeled after George Bush, that real life comedian.
