Cowboys & Aliens - Thirty mins in. So far so good.
Removal - 1/2 a star for a stupid story about a guy who hallucinates.
Chasing Mavericks - Well of course I gotta watch every surf film that comes out but this was awful. Horrible acting, Butler kept dropping his accent, the script was full of cliches/lines that make you wince, and quite frankly the story wasn't that interesting. Live Like Jay is the tag. Why? So you too can live so recklessly you end up dead at 22? I'm disgusted with the way surfers are portrayed in film - that we're aggro competitive drug using airheads.
New Die Hard movie was a fun Die Hard movie.....nuff said went with dh. good date flick for us.
Silver Linings Playbook bff picked out for her birthday. Bi-polar guy meets out of control post-loss widow. I'm not making fun, this is a serious description. Very sad for 1/2, slowly gets hopeful, sweet ending.
Best part was I used old fandango codes I have had for years from some promo I learned about here. Finally could use them at a couple of amc theaters in the KC area. Only paid for concessions.
The price of popcorn reminded me why I prefer to wait for movies to hit cable.
Thanks every day to all of you who help me spend so little!
Margaret - Oddly mildly entertaining story of Lisa, a teen who witnesses a tragic accident, and struggles to come to terms with all aspects surrounding the incident. Long film. About 2 1/2 hours.
Certainly one of the strongest scripts I've seen in a long time but there were problems. Among them: Can't recall the last time average teens today used such an extensive vocabulary. There's conversations the audience isn't privy to and cutaways from other ones that leave you disconnected instead of drawing you in. Too many shouting matches. Too many little classroom debates about terrorism.
The plot hole is so obvious it's hard to believe such a clever screenwriter would miss it. At no time does Lisa (Anna Paquin) ever see a counselor or a therapist nor is it ever mentioned to her. Not by her mother (very weak casting choice) or by the numerous teachers (Matt Damon, Matthew Broderick) at her school. Not even by the accident victim's family. So here's a whole fairly decent movie revolving around someone coming to terms with PTSD and yet we never see or even hear the word counselor or therapist. WTF?
London River - A story about two parents drawn together while looking for their missing children after the 2005 bombings in London. Fine acting (Brenda Blethyn is always brilliant) and a very moving story. It has a bit of a disjointed story line but even so it's worth watching. 3.5/5
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
Dolphin Tale - So like I know they had to fit her with a tail but they didn't need to make her an aquarium attraction. I don't care if you give her a 100,000 gallon tank, it's not the same as living in the wild. But they probably figure her life span will be shortened either way. Whatever. Put the dolphin back in the farking wild.
"The Master" - As fantastic as "There Will Be Blood" was, this is the polar opposite. 1/5
"Swimming to Cambodia" - It was stronly recommended to me by a friend. I think my friend hates me or something. 1.5/5
Also a few online docs from the "Vice Guide" series - where they show western reporters in some pretty sketchy situations: "Inside North Korea" - 4/5 "Conflict Minerals, Rebels and Child Soldiers in Congo" - 3/5 "The Cannibal Warlords of Liberia" - 3.5/5
