Animal Kingdom 10/10. This is the best Crime Drama I have seen in a while. A female character in power*(Jacki Weaver's character)*definitely offers a different dynamic from the more typical crime family. Such great character development too. Very impressed with David Mich˘d in his feature film debut. It would be tough for Jacki Weaver to win an Oscar for this role given her opposition, but I hope she at least gets the nomination, as she did at the Golden Globes. *


Justified 8/10, the first season. Sort of a contemporary cowboy action series.*Originally aired on FX. As far as I know, they're signed on for second season. It's Adapted from Elmore Leonard's stories Pronto, Riding the Rap, & Fire in the Hole. Timothy Olyphant is great as Raylan Givens. Gotta love the no bullshit approach to justice.


Virginity Hit 7/10. I originally found out about this movie from some posters on the subway advertising a "hotline for virgins." That makes me sound really cool. Anyways, long story short, I think this movie is hilarious. Reviews were not great, but you have to keep in mind what you're dealing with: a teenage sex comedy. It's not supposed to win Oscars, it's supposed to be stupid and hilarious - which it is. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay. Also has an AMAZING cameo by Rock N Roll GREAT and former Creed frontman Scott Stapp. I shit you not.

The Green Hornet: 7/10.........hey, it was pretty good. I loved the suits of the hornet and kato [a rather strange detail to name, but hey, I loved the old school look to it.] Rogen as the hornet was.....well, I'm not familiar with the character AT ALL, so I had nothing and no one to compare him to. he was entertaining, with the film. I liked it.

So far this week: Factory Girl; The A-Team; Maid in Sweden; The Cell (re-watch). I have a really hard time rating movies - I enjoy them all for different reasons.

Alcove -- How funny you watched Zardoz! I just saw it about 2 weeks ago. Definitely a strange one...

It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. 9/10


Even in my cynicism I laughed myself silly, forgotten how funny it was (I would LOVE to hear Commentary on the Gas Station demolition scene)

The Rocker.
I am a sucker for Emma Stone, and when you add Rainn Wilson to the mix, you are in for something.
I catched it on TV a couple of weeks ago, but I rented it yesterday.
Fun to watch...
6.5/10

today I watched Time of the Wolf (8/10) by Michael Haneke (Funny Games) for the first time. I'm currently obsessed with Michael Haneke.. He is the filmmaker I've been waiting for. His films are sort of a critique on Hollywood cinema. He hates the spoon feeding method of story telling (as do I).

His films are very minimal, uses very few shots for a scene, but they're all incredibly powerful. He excludes all the little details that tie the give the story to you. This gives the viewer freedom to figure out the story for themselves, which is more engaging in my opinion.

Some people would probably be bored with the slow pace but I find it mesmerizing. He makes films the way I think they should be made. It's a backlash to the Mtv generation of media. But it's not like a regression to old filmmaking, its innovation, progression to a newer style of cinema.

All of his movies are also critiques on the way violence is portrayed in the media. For example in Funny Games, we don't see much of the violence and terror but instead are focused in on the characters reactions and leave the rest to the imagination, which really makes it more disturbing.

All of his pictures are gems, I would recommend Funny Games (there is a German version and an American version, the American version is pretty much a shot by shot recreation for an American audience with great actors like Tim Roth, Michael Pitt, and Naomi Watts.) The White Ribbon is his newest, and the Piano Teacher is highly acclaimed.

Gonzo and Indie Budget will LOVE the best of Chicholina, an Italian porn star who later became a member of Italy's Parlement. She does some funky stuff with the doll of a baby and takes it from 3 men all at the same time.

Tarzen and The Amazons (1945) 7/10 Who in their right mind would even name their son, Boy--TARZEN!

Amazons and Gladiators (2001) 9/10 The best Amazon movie I've ever seen with solid production values and a great story. It reminds me of a lot of the old movies about the life of knights, warriors, and legends. The story traces the life of an Amazon from childhood to adulthood who left her mark on the Roman Empire. And, it is based on the real life "Warrior Queen" Zenobia who challenged the Roman Empire.

Tudors Season 4, Disc 1
9/10

Pretty hot. Mostly sex and violence, and more sex. Oh yeah and learning about history.

I also saw Factory Girl. Was going to do a write up, but on second thought there wasn't enough there to warrant it.

7/10


And, from the library, I've got Shakespeare in Love again.

10/10


Throw in Simpsons, Flaming Moe

5/10

Missing the old magic (and that is not a homoerotic Mr. Burns reference).[/QUOTE]


And I almost forgot!

Micmacs (2009)
9.5
