Not the greatest night for movies, but not the worst.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

The last movie that surprised me was probably "She's Out Of My League". I enjoyed it more then i thought I would. It was kinda like a good chick flick.

Gonna try to keep it short....


Kingdom of Heaven - 4/5 - pretty good movie, the amount of violence caught me off guard. 3 hours for the director's cut is pretty damn long. A lot of people said the DC was good....dunno if i can recommend it because its f'n 3 hours long.

Thirst -3/5 - like most park chan-wooks films, Thirst is pretty slow paced. There is A LOT of romance throughout. I came into Thirst thinking it was about the struggle of good and evil of a priest turned vamp. The movie starts that way for about 30minutes then the next 90 minutes are about his gf. Definitely not Park Chan-wook's best film...Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is far superior. I guess if you love that 'forbidden romance' bs about vamps u could like the movie but for me Thirst is a pass.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - 5/5 - The investigation of a cold case has a 24yo hacker and a 'soon to be in jail' journalist working together to solve the mystery. Right from the start I was drawn into the story and wanted to learn what was happening and how this all can play out. Its a definite must see film. One of the better crime/dramas I have seen recently. I don't think this single movie is better than Infernal Affairs but I am sure I will like the series more overall. Can't wait for the next film.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is a damn good film. Saying that, the book is so much better. I'm currently reading it and it's leaving me speechless.

As for me, I just finished watching Black Dynamite and that's a fucking great film. Michael Jae White ftw!

Law-biding Citizen - 6/10

It... was shocking like The Departed but other than that Fox kills me and so does the ending. It's like hearing a joke and waiting for the punch line only to have the guy screw up the joke.

It's Complicated- It's a comedy of errors-- without the comedy.

Burn After Reading- It's a dark comedy of errors.

When In Rome- John Heder, Will Arnett, and Danny DeVito added some necessary comedic zest to this otherwise forgettable film.

Surrogates - 5/10

I wasn't really feeling this movie from the start but the ending... christ. It was as bad as the ending to Waterworld
Spoiler
. These kinds of movies that "look into how the future could be" make me cringe every time. The only way this could be better is if they mixed it in with Equilibrium's Premise.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Great film and kept me guessing until the end. The final final ending was a bit of a cop out but the movie was already 2 and half hours long.

Inception - good but not amazing. I don't understand why people were confused by this movie, all you had to do was pay attention.


Cyrus - extremely good, strange, different but I loved it, very enjoyable.

That's pretty difficult when you gotta text constantly during the movie and look more at your phone than the movie screen. Seriously, when I saw the movie some douche was doing that in the row in front of me and the light was extremely annoying.

Showdown - 3/5 - Ken moves from Kansas to somewhere. He has to go to a new school as a senior in high school. This new high school seems very ghetto with smoking, knives, guns and graffiti all over the place....also like most movies the kids look like they are 28+ years old. Ken talks to Ben Stiller's wife, Christine Taylor who is dating the school bully. School bully is also training at some dojo so he knows karate! After school bully beats up Ken a few times for talking to Stiller's wife, Ken starts training with the janitor to fight back. That janitor is none other than Billy Blanks. There its some really funny moments in here because of Billy Blanks and the Assistance Principle played by Brion James. The fighting in the film is pretty average. No action scene will blow you away. If you can find Showdown its probably worth a laugh or two.

DOUBLE TIME!

ill definitely check it out. Showdown was more like Karate Kid with Billy Blanks acting as Miyagi.

Lovely Bones - 3/5 - Eh, story wasn't all that interesting. Visuals for the other world were good and Stanley Tucci is awesome but besides that not too much to enjoy.

Bounty Hunter - 3/5 - Quirky love story....had a few funny moments.
