Yeah, the beginning lagged and that's why I didn't give it a full 10. Just based on the last half hour though, I'd give it a 10.

God, I love Simon Pegg this weekend.

If the maximum rating on the scale is 10, and the best part of the movie is the last 30 minutes or so, you can't have a final rating of 9. Your math is faulty


I might see it this coming weekend.

A Night In The Museum

7/10

Great for the kids, entertaining for adults on a rainy night.
Great special effects, that's it.

I started doing Netflix about a month ago and made a huge list of all these classics and such that I'd always wanted to see. Last night was:

The Grapes of Wrath
9.5 out of 10 just because some of the hokey music ruined very poignant scenes. The movie is brilliant and heartbreaking, all the performances are incredible. And has anyone else noticed that Henry Fonda and Jared Leto look rather similar (perhaps it's the sparkly eyes)?

I watched the Music Rising special on Sundance before this and there are so many similarities. Why is that when Mother Nature turns on people, their fellow man has to give it to them 10 times worse?

Curse of the Golden Flower - 7/10

Worth seeing on the big screen if only because it's probably the most ridiculously opulent film I've ever seen. The imperial China sure makes the court in "Marie-Antoinette" look like an austere Amish village on a grey rainy evening. The story is suitably melodramatic and overblown, and at times the movie sort of buckles under the weight of its own stateliness and grandiosity, but the visuals are undeniably impressive.

Notes on a Scandal
8.5/10

I really enjoyed this one - awesome performances from Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench. Very creepy, unsettling movie, and it's short and moves quickly. Judi Dench is just fantastic - there are a number of scenes that just make your skin crawl.

This movie is so good and so frightening because it's true, it's all happening. In the age of Fox News propaganda and NBC airing the manifesto of the Virginia Tech shooter, television "news" has become all about sensationalism, entertainment and ratings, just like the film said it was.

I finished watching Off the Black tonight. I'd had this one on my Netflix list for months, and it was finally released a few weeks ago.

It stars Nick Nolte as Ray, an umpire for high school baseball, and Trevor Morgan as Dave, a pitcher whose team is eliminated from the playoffs because Ray rules his last pitch a ball instead of a strike. Dave and two of his friends vandalize Ray's house after the game, but Dave is the only one Ray catches. He agrees not to call the cops if Dave cleans up his property, and while he does, they forge a father-son sort of friendship that they both desperately need. Ray has lost his family and drinks heavily; Dave's mother walked out on his family, and since then, his dad has become lost and withdrawn, leaving him and his sister to take care of themselves.

This is a sensitive, well-developed movie. It moves slowly in some places, but it's never sentimental or overwrought. All of the characters are flawed and funny and very real. It's a beautiful look at fathers and sons, and happiness, and forgiveness. It's the best movie I've seen in a long time. I'm convinced Ray's character was written with Nick Nolte in mind, and Trevor Morgan delivers a smart, believable performance.

9/10

I really liked this movie, too. The only subplot I didn't like was the romance (don't remember which characters ... William Holden and ... whoever it was). It felt out of place. But the rest was great. Eerily prescient.

Blood Diamond

6.5/10
Great movie and good performances by Leo and his co-star...which his name escapes me right now, he was in Amistad before...again, great in that movie.

This movie reminded me on one of my all time biggest crushes....

9/10

This movie was fantastic. I've always found Penelope Cruz a little annoying, but she was fantastic. I've enjoyed all the Aldomovar flicks I've seen, but I think I liked this one the best.

She's not as annoying when she's speaking in her native language

The Queen

8/10

I liked this one more than I thought I would. Helen Mirren did such an excellent job you really start to believe she is the Queen. It really made me think how the monarchy is though.
