Movie Ratings and Reviews

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

I absolutely loved this movie and thought Guy Ritchie did an amazing job. The cast was brilliant (even Beckham), the story was great, but more importantly the Ritchie style made it engaging and modern. Every scene kept my attention -LOVED IT!!!

Triple 9
Triple 9(2016)

Simple movie with a lot of violence. All of the lead actors were great but Affleck and Chiwatel stood out for me. When the Clifton fella came on the screen, however, all I could think of was 187, which is the movie that started his career - wish they would cast new and intriguing people for these roles, there can't just be one hispanic playing all the roles for these type of movies it gets boring. The Russian element made me think of the Ray Donovan series, and I especially liked Kate Winslet, she looked amazing. I'm still scratching my head as to why the scene of the fat lady on top of the trash can was necessary. humm

Gods Of Egypt
½

Can't say it was the great movie, but it was a good filler while I waited for the other movie to start.

Sicario
Sicario(2015)

A lot of good things about this movie, Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin's casting for their roles. The music and cinematography were also good, but the story was lacking and I am now horrified that Villanueve is the one redoing one of my all time favorite movies: Bladerunner-seriously? Rats! I say this, because the topic of the drug cartels is such a powerful and severe reality that its not like writers have to reach very deep to come up with a brilliant storyline and its not like a director would have to have a big imagination to put something together that is shock-and-awe-killer-wow. This director is no Brian De Palma and unfortunately he did not have an Oliver Stone to write him a Scarface type story. He is also no Ridley Scott and for the remake of Bladerunner you have to have great vision and this movie, including all the ones I have seen from this guy Villanueve direct fall short of stellar and boy is he seriously overrated and potentially going to make a mess of the Bladerunner masterpiece. rats!!

Southpaw
Southpaw(2015)

Jake Gyllenhaal remains one of my favorite actors and this role is just another reason why he rocks. Interesting fictional characters.

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
½

It was great to watch this movie on an IMAX screen. I enjoyed it. Entertaining.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Beyond awesome! Tom Hardy is perfect, the guitarist was everything. And although Furiosa was a good character to bring into the mix for the first installment, i hope they continue the franchise with different characters every time and focus more on Hardy's complex brilliance. Incredible film on so many levels!

The Rover
The Rover(2014)
½

real good in a strange sorta creepy kinda way.

American Sniper

Incredible! Brilliant story and impeccable film making. Wish Zamporini's story would have been directed by Eastwood as well.

Selma
Selma(2015)

Hum... Sometimes you read a true story and it is so moving you just can't imagine a movie doing it justice. Well, Clint Eastwood on American Sniper delivers brilliantly and Spike Lee on Malcolm X killed it. Why did the people who wanted to bring Selma to the big screen not call upon Spike Lee? What in the world where they thinking? I seriously thought this was another Angelina Jolie directed movie because it had the same look and feel as the butcher job that was done on another powerful story like Unbroken. I say redo, but please give the directing of these great stories to people that truly have a vision and skill to do the stories justice. Kinda mad cuz I love Martin Luther King.

Blackhat
Blackhat(2015)

You know... Michael Mann has made some of my most all time favorite movies but gheez when i saw the cast of this movie i wondered if he'd hit his head and gone bonkers, i wanted to believe i was losing my mind but now that i saw this piece of doo doo i am certain two killer dorectors ridley scott and michael mann have taken the crap pill and gone off the deep end. WOW say it isnt so. double grrrr

Wild
Wild(2014)

forgot to write something, but wish i could have forgotten to go see this movie. where is the Reece from Legally Blonde? Is she gone forever?

Top Five
Top Five(2014)

Did not disappoint, but i still see Pookie. lol

The Imitation Game

Excellent excellent excellent.

Foxcatcher
Foxcatcher(2014)

Excellent movie! Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum blew it out of the park.

Into the Woods

Loved Chris Pine and Emily Blunt. that's it. :-)

Unbroken
Unbroken(2014)

the book was great, the movie, not so much. Horrible casting.

Exodus: Gods and Kings

The thing is... I love Ridley Scott and Christian Bale so even if the movie was just ok (and that is a ginormous overstatement), I just can't bring myself to give it less than 5 stars for the dedication at the end of the movie. And I have to admit I really liked this Ramses. (on the real, I think this movie needs a do over-not cool to have such an awesome story cheapened by a disregard for its significance. with such great actors and technology, they could have done better. what a shame.)

Hector And The Search For Happiness

Gone Girl was in this movie and she was also great in this one. Definitely a guy movie, but for psychological reasons. lol Cute.

The Theory of Everything

This movie was just ok for me.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

the entire family agreed this was the worst movie EVER!!!!

St. Vincent
St. Vincent(2014)

not as bad as I thought it would be. naomi watts is crazy funny.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

seriously? glad i waited for it to come out on television.. not so great.

Fury
Fury(2014)

Beyond great. Great everything

John Wick
John Wick(2014)

great rides, hilarious crazy, overall entertaining.

Kill the Messenger

Could have been a great movie, had an amazing cast Renner, Liotta, Patrick and Garcia, but instead it was just not that good. bummer.

Gone Girl
Gone Girl(2014)

this movie was insanely good.

Boyhood
Boyhood(2014)
½

Great cast but the story was weak. Should have remembered the dissapointment of the Tinker Soldier something movie. It felt like the same lame nonsense. Boring.

I Origins
I Origins(2014)

I love it when I see a preview of a movie that intrigues me and delivers. So glad I ended my movie marathon with this gem.

Wish I Was Here
½

many things about this movie were sweet and adorable. i'm happy i didn't listen to the reviews.

Lucy
Lucy(2014)

i must have been on a torture mission with Scarlett Johansson this weekend. this was not as bad as Under the Skin, but holy smokes it was not good. everything about it was so wacky dorky dumb.

Hercules
Hercules(2014)

as much as I like the rock and these type of movies, yikes this was on the level of Pompei - horrible. People really need to stop trying to recreate a masterpiece like Gladiator. Sorry, only the 300 series is on the level of Gladiator.

Under the Skin

oh boy... i like Scarlett Johansson, but recently all of her roles have been seriously lame. wish she would go back to films like Girl with a Pearl Earning because the alien genre isn't working

Begin Again
Begin Again(2014)

hands down, my absolute favorite movie right now.

Third Person
Third Person(2014)

tried to like it, but it was ridiculously awful

Snowpiercer
Snowpiercer(2014)

this movie was beyond bad and just when you throught it couldn't get more ridiculous, they kept suprising you with more reasons to justify your desire to walk out. but wait, there's more, Ed Harris and Tilda Swinton-REALLY? WHY?

X-Men: Days of Future Past

great movie. Fassbender never disappoints.

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

the 3D IMAX experience is everything. and it totally works for this movie. i was not dissapointed and Emily Blunt is as wonderful as ever.

Chef
Chef(2014)

The most wonderful movie I have seen in a while. I loved everything. What a great story.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

An absolutely brilliant cast, script, costumes, scenery - just great in every way.

A Perfect Man

I absolutely loved this movie. Schreiber and Tripplehorn were incredible. The script, casting, just everything superb.

Drift
Drift(2013)
½

let's hear it for crappy hair extensions and bad writing. the surfing scenes were cool but this was no Point Break. gosh this reminded me of what great movie Point Break was.

Baggage Claim

oh boy, I should know better than renting this kinda movie. over and over again, it's the same cast, same story of overly sexual situations that make me wonder if there will ever be any substance-where is spike lee, at least his movies had something to say. stop already. do something interesting for a change.

Noah
Noah(2014)
½

humm... i give it 3 1/2 stars because Russell Crowe is just always great. But WOW, I didn't know they had Transformers back in the day? Alrighty then.

Cesar Chavez
Cesar Chavez(2014)

i kinda fell asleep and heard snoring a few rows back. yikes.

300: Rise of an Empire

Unbelievable to see this movie at an IMAX with 3D glasses. Still a fan. WOW

Non-Stop
Non-Stop(2014)

while i waited for 300 to start i saw the beginning or this movie, had to leave, but returned to see the ending. a little over the top, but entertaining. gotta say it was disappointing to see Lupita is such a small role -wonder if that's all she will ever get now.

The Passion of the Christ

the most incredible movie ever made about Jesus. every time I watch this movie I am moved beyond measure.

Son Of God
Son Of God(2014)
½

i would have given it 5 stars, but Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ is still, by far, the best movie about Jesus. The story is undeniably amazing, no matter what.

Against All Odds

ah, always loved this movie and still do.

Pompeii
Pompeii(2014)

i'm just gonna laugh. but, i scratch my head wondering why keifer sutherland and carrie-anne moss thought this was a good idea. but really funny was seeing the milo character outgunned (arms and height) by the others he was up against - like we are supposed to believe he can really taken em - omg i am still laughing.

About Last Night

not my type of movie and glad they stated it "wanders even further from [the original] David Mamet play" i would say it wanders totally and completely and even dislike the association. this is just the same ole non-stop junk movie with the same lame cast over and over again - lame junk.

Nebraska
Nebraska(2013)

Hum, the lead older fella in this movie got nominated for a best actor award. I don't see it. movie was just ok.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
½

Humm... i just let this movie be and it worked. If you go expecting little, you may end up enjoying it as much as I did.

Lone Survivor

Ouch ouch and ouch... i am still in pain after watching this movie. let's just say that every time i saw somebody hit a rock with their face or any other body part for that matter, I was cringing. The trips/falls from my mountain moments have given me some pretty gnarly gashes but they are nothing compared to this brutality. WOW, hard to watch but WOW and ouch ouch ouch and ooooooouuuuuuch

No
No(2013)

Was not sure I would like it, but Gale Garcia Bernal was terrific.

Her
Her(2013)

So glad this was the first movie I saw this year at a theater. What beautiful use of colors, city backdrops and wardrobe. Joaquin Phoenix delivered a very touching performance and he looked amazing. A great movie.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Scorsese is no Oliver Stone on this subject. The repetitive ridiculousness in this movie got old quickly-why three hours for this crap is beyond me. Way overrated. I was incredibly disappointed.

American Hustle

incredible cast, incredible soundtrack, incredible everything. gheez, christian bale, he restores my faith in movies every time.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

had no intention of watching this garbage, but I was waiting for my movie to start so i walked in thinking it can't be that bad. 5 minutes was all i could tolerate. beyond fail!!!

Dallas Buyers Club
½

movies about tough subjects are hard to watch, but is this mcconaughey's best performance? um, he's no christian bale, but leto was incredible.

Oldboy
Oldboy(2013)

yikes, this movie was violent and weird. can't say it was bad, just weird.

Delivery Man
Delivery Man(2013)

an in between filler movie - what a waste of revenue - glad i only watched 25 minutes of the ending - not good.

Out of the Furnace

i thought i wasn't going to like this movie, I had issues with some of the casting and thought it would not work, but it was really good and Christian Bale was better than ever.

Lars and the Real Girl

OMG this movie was incredible. i loved every bit of it.

The Good Doctor

creepy. no wonder i don't like being sick or being in hospitals.

Virginia
Virginia(2012)

this was the weirdest movie.

Black Nativity

watched this as i waited for the real movie to start. not much to say, this formula stuff is getting old.

Pretty in Pink

No forced stay at home weekend can go without watching this movie. it's movies like these that make being stuck in bed ok.

The Way Way Back

i rented this movie a while back and never saw it. this weekend i rented it again and i am glad i got to see it, such a great story so brilliantly acted by everyone. Sam Rockwell rocks!

2 Guns
2 Guns(2013)

wow, this movie was not very good.

The Great Gatsby

I actually liked this movie. The best part was the end. :-P

Oblivion
Oblivion(2013)

haha... didn't realize i watched two Freeman movies back to back this weekend. hum... i think i fell asleep, turned it back on, dozes off again and woke up to finish it. i think i kept wishing it would get better every time i woke up or did i just dream that - whatever... i'd blame the muscle relaxer, but no, this movie was not so bueno.

Now You See Me

i must have been bored... but i will say Freeman and Caine were the reason I continued to watch. the rest were ok, but i kept wondering why Common, he seemed out of place or like his character was an after thought - let's put this guy in there so we can attract his crowd - not.

12 Years a Slave

This film is BEYOND brilliant... every bit of it. Not enough praise can be given for this outstanding masterpiece. Bravo McQueen and the entire cast. My faith in the awesomeness of provocative filmmakers has been restored.

Captain Phillips
½

martini needs to be in more films!!!! this movie was good and i especially loved it when the navy seals came on the scene.

The Counselor

I am a huge Scott and McCarthy fan. So my bias will give this movie a pass, but in all honesty, i'd rather watch Breaking Bad for cartel style violence. I also found the scene with Diaz and the car incredibly distasteful and unnecessary. to have a stellar cast like Fassbender and Bardem and a brilliant director, you really need a better script. Sorry McCarthy this was a loser for you and you took them all down with you.

Runner Runner

i tried to ignore the 9% rating. I shouldn't have this was really bad.

Carrie
Carrie(2013)

nowhere near as good as the original. whoever casted this movie missed the mark.

The Fifth Estate

it had few interesting parts, but overall this movie could have been wrapped up in 20 minutes.

Arthur Newman

The film got ridiculous very quickly. i expected a lot more considering the two lead actors but nope, just blah and ridiculous.

Gravity
Gravity(2013)

Cuaron is a brilliant director and i went to see the film because his name was on it, but i really didn't know what to expect so i kept an open mind. wow, it made me stress out, laugh and cry. the visuals effects are incredible, the acting subperb. i was captivated until the very end.

Enough Said

um, i guess. not all that great. story was a bit weak for me.

Rush
Rush(2013)

if you can get past the crappy and loud first 10 minutes, maybe there is something worth seeing, but i couldn't so who knows. i just couldn't justify 2 1/2 hours, even if Hemsworth is beautiful to look at. perhaps it is best to see this movie in the daytime.

Don Jon

The Paperboy
The Paperboy(2012)

not even Jack Bauer could save this one. what a mess.

Mud
Mud(2013)

Tye Sheridan's character Ellis was incredible throughout the film- flawless. And just because of him i rate this movie at the top, but i must say the director must have watched Ashley Judd and Val Kilmer's amazing heartbreaking scene in the movie Heat one too many times, but sorry it just did not work here with Reece and McConaughey, it was not even close.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

let's just say robert downey jr. is the bomb. is there anything else?

The Place Beyond The Pines

SHAZZZAAAM!!!! This movie rocked on so many levels. Touching, heartbreaking, cute, interesting... ahh, so many good parts - this director is it for me right now. over the top cool!

To The Wonder
½

A very stylized, poetic, lyrical version of Dumb and Dumber only the characters in this flick weren't funny or endearing. I couldn't help but post what Robin Clifford of Reeling Reviews wrote: "[The Tree of Life"] took us from the earth to the cosmos. This latest work by [Terrence] Malick takes us to Oklahoma." Hilarious.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

ok forget it, all it took was about 5 mins and that retarded Jay-Z quote and it was over for me and this flick. what in the world?????? over the top, wacky

Olympus Has Fallen

geez, i'm stressed out to the max. in fact, my stomach is hurting from seeing the US so vulnerable and all that jazz, so much so, that I'm now waiting to see G.I. Joe just to see them fools blow stuff up and put me back in la la land - hahahahaha i'm in ridiculous mode. ;-)

Temptation
Temptation(2013)

the next time someone tells me a Tyler Perry movie is worth seeing i'm going to trust my instincts and see something else. however, Brandy and Vanessa Williams are as cute as ever, in fact, even Kim Kardashian was cute, but overall, the movie was just not my cup of tea. must be the subject matter - pretty sad, really.

Snitch
Snitch(2013)

better than I expected.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

awe what a sweet movie. i really likes this one.

At Close Range

talk about a killer Walken flick. this one rocks for me. i have seen it several times and each time i watch it i feel like it's the first time. captivating true story and briliiant performances by all.

Stand Up Guys

let's just say i was warned. but come on, walken and pacino? it couldn't possibly be that bad. Nope, it wasn't bad, it was SUPER DUPER BAD!!!!! I could only handle 30 minutes - I tried, but i was afraid i'd never get over the let down. I even had to load Scarface and At Close Range to the netflix instant que to watch them tonight just to get over how bad this movie jacked their image . geeez, and seriously all you fellas that think you're hot stuff, just watch this movie to get a reality check on what's coming at ya fast - aaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!

Pitch Perfect

The Last Stand

Broken City
Broken City(2013)

geez, from maximus to this? say it isn't so. this flick was worse than I thought it would be. it was painful to watch my gladiator reduced to this level. rats.

Zero Dark Thirty

expected typical and got something way better. glad this movie did not disappoint. Bigelow kept it simple and engaging.

Gangster Squad
½

stylish and entertaining. digged it.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

Definitely worth seeing as a rental.

Anna Karenina

i think it's the subject matter that troubles most people. it's really hard to like keira knightley and aaron johnson's roles, they definitely turned my stomach, but setting aside my disdain for dishonorable conduct, I appreciated the attempt to illustrate the darkness and harshness of this tragic story. i liked the film very much.

De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone)

wow, I love Marion Cotillard! went to see it because of her, but this was a seriously bad film choice for her. story weak, direction wacked, casting mediocre, shelf this puppy. yikes!

The Impossible

tough to watch this movie. heartbreaking, but so great.

Nowhere Boy
Nowhere Boy(2010)

love john lennon and this film about his life was great. aaron johnson was brilliant as lennon.

Django Unchained

lol, definitely not a movie you'd want to see on Christmas day - ooops. Typical goofy Tarantino stuff sprinkled with some good scenes. Love that he brought Don Johnson out of hiding. if you must see it, rent it, although there are some (very few) good scenes like with decaprio, christoph waltz and don johnson's characters, I think the director's main purpose was to show us his deranged mind and how many ways a bullet can gross us out as it penetrate the body. over it.

Les Misérables

I have always loved this story and this film is absolutely beautiful. The best movie I have seen all year. Every bit of it is captivating. Soooo happy I saw this movie today :-)

Jack Reacher

i purposely did not read up about the movie and did not expect to like it as much as i did. Casting was a little odd, but overall the movie was very entertaining and kept my attention.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

i'm sure it was good for some people, but i just wasn't diggin it much. they could have wrapped it up in an hour or less.

Silver Linings Playbook

Awe DeNiro was super cute in this movie. Chris Tucker was oddly cast in this but i guess they wanted an all inclusive cast. He was good in the little parts he had. :-) overall, i liked it-really cute.

Killing Them Softly

wow, i did not expect to like this movie and i was right, i loved it. Everything.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Thought it'd be a good idea to step into this movie while i waited for the ones i wanted to see to start. YIKES, is it me or is this movie just void? Hummm... Exit exit please.

Life of Pi
Life of Pi(2012)

this movie was just yuk. i kept trying to find something to like, but the more the film kept rolling the more i was grossed out. i doing my best to erase this whole movie from my memory. yuk yuk and yuk

The best movie I have seen this year. So many amazing and touching moments. I loved it.

The Bourne Legacy
½

Rats... of all the Bournes this one was not on the same level. What's up with the token Asian that seemed like he was was gonna bust out some real fighting moves but instead simply rode a bike (badly) and then get handled by Weisz? Hilarious, but seriously? Worse than that was having to endure Norton who was irking me badly. Ok, it wasn't all bad the few seconds of screen time between Weisz and Renner together were great, they saved the movie for me.

Bronson
Bronson(2009)

um... saw it this weekend... um... yikes, story was insane, but tom hardy's performance was incredibly good. best role yet - now i understand the choice for mad max.

Whatever Oliver Stone! What a hot mess. However, it was worth going just to see Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek and Laguna Beach, the rest was retarded. And wasn't the title originally Americana? All I can say is - Whatever!

Michael Clayton

i love movie day... this one is so cool!

Brotherhood of the Wolf

the first time i saw this movie i thought it was cool especially the cinematography and the fight scenes, today i'm not so sure about this movie... just ok

Prometheus
Prometheus(2012)

David stole the show. It was worth seeing simply to watch this character. amazing! amazing opening scene.

Snow White and the Huntsman

although the reviews seem to be so so, i absolutely loved this movie.

The Five-Year Engagement

very cute. but if this is the best movie i've seen out of the last 7, we are in trouble.

Safe

some interesting parts.

The Raven

The Hunger Games

The movie had a lot of potential and the characters were interesting. I thought Jennifer Lawrence was wonderful. Ha, I didn't know Harrelson had hair. That blonde long hair looked very cool on him-he should keep it.

Tyler Perry's Good Deeds

ayayaeee, where is spike lee? i think i'll watch mo better blues or jungle fever just to remember there were once good black films - oh wait, even stomp the yard was better than this!!!! hahaha

Wanderlust
Wanderlust(2012)

i don't even want to admit i saw this movie. it was so bad. the writers and producers of this film should be ashamed. what a waste.

Faster

uhm, what? oliver who? ah yes, the egocentric hitman, that's what made me stop to watch this movie - great wake up get ready to go to work scene. whoa!

I Love You Phillip Morris

what a strangely cute movie. ewan mcgregor was so sweet and adorable and jim carrey was over the top crazy as ever.

This Means War

I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Super cute, hilarious, and just plain fun. The perfect matinee after a groovy hike.

Safe House
Safe House(2012)

wow, a pleasant surprise. the action kept my attention. don't typically like reynolds movies, but he was really good in this one. a great creasy bear kinda role for denzel and boy did he deliver-love the hair and the malcom x hat and glasses look-dig. still don't like gleeson after that wack movie he did with cheadle - still slimy. overall, really like it.

Man on a Ledge
½

very entertaining. i enjoyed it very much.

The Hurt Locker

Seriously! Watching Inglourious Basterds and The Hurt Locker back to back was awesome. Still can't believe how much i missed during the captive years where the choice was watching repeats of the Water Boy or Top Gun. Staying up past my bedtime was worth it - this movie was great.

Inglourious Basterds

don't know why i waited so long to watch this movie - fab!

Haywire
Haywire(2012)

Hum, Fassbender and McGregor were the draw, but even they could not save this crap soderbergh put together. why them with that? just awful.

Shame
Shame(2011)

McQueen's work is outstanding - the train ride scene (uh, two) - over the top WHOA!. Fassbender delivered the most vulnerable, haunting, and spellbinding images of the ugliest and darkest parts of man.

Friends With Benefits
½

Saw this movie on New Year's Eve - cute.

A Dangerous Method

Knightley captivates you with her brilliantly creepy and haunting performance as a mental patient. hands down-outstanding. Well written and directed. Many difficult, emotional moments captured and delivered exquisitely by Mortensen Fassbender and Cassel. It definitely holds your attention.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Great cinematography and cast, but the musical scenes where dorky - overall, it was intensely slow, incoherent, and boring.

Like Crazy
Like Crazy(2011)
½

Sweet. My niece enjoyed it so for that reason alone, it was good.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Fincher is brilliant! So why am I on the fence about this movie? Could it be that it dragged a little and that i dozed off, despite that it was the middle of the day, only to wake up to a squealing chick being brutally assaulted? It must be me! Yeah, that's it! or could it be the realization that Craig is under 5'11 (depressing) or that the tattoo gal's character was a little on the weak side? so many great actors, so much potential. sorry, a few gory scenes does not a great film make. there was something missing and i am still trying to figure it out.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

i don't care what people say, this movie rocked. if you want to see amazing actor chemistry, brilliant writing, acting, wit, directing, and cinematography - this is a must see. there are few actors that can captivate you like Robert Downey Jr. he was flawless. this movie is in a league above all other box office stuff and simply can't be compared.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

Amazing billboards-yeap... cool fight scenes-yeap... story, acting, and everything else, yawn... if you're thinkin' rocky, stallone style-not even close, but nick nolte was superb. 98%? Guess we don't need much these days ;-) not horrible, just not much to it for me. I think i wanna go home and watch the wrestler instead. There has to be a better script out there for mma fighters, geez.

Hanna
Hanna(2011)

overall, the movie was good. bana was great to watch-as usual, but the whistling fella was quite annoying, in fact the whole whistling gang was kinda ridiculous and not a good fit. casting could have done a better job, but kudos on Bana-fur sur. come to think of it, this movie was like a terrible combination of borne identity and run lola run only that comparison is a bit of a stretch. good movie if you just need a break from homework.

Inside Job
Inside Job(2010)

Just saw it. very interesting, brutal, savage, ridiculous... sure i can come up with more words for the state of our financial situation. most of the people at the showing came out of there talking to themselves, nodding their heads, zombie like, all that jazz. perfect to watch since it relates to what i am studying right now.
