Ice Twisters
Ice Twisters (2009)
22 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A Syfy channel movie, so you know the production value is low and the acting is not much better. I liked the concept - government experiment to create rain for drought stricken areas of the world goes awry and creates enormous ice storms instead. Nothing original, lots of anti-government rhetoric, crappy CGI. Reminded me of the sci-fi movies of the 60's giving me a nostalgic feeling. Not worth more than one watch, and to most folks probably not even that.

The Lucky One
The Lucky One (2012)
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A romantic drama based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. It's well acted, the situations are believable, and the leads have great chemistry. It is a great movie with only one downfall. It is utterly and distractingly predictable. From the first meeting of the leads to the fight they eventually have to the ex-husband's behavior, and on and on. I liked the characters enough to enjoy it, but I knew what was going to happen before it did. Might be time for Sparks to learn a couple new pitches...

Psych: 9
Psych: 9 (2010)
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This one has been trashed by critics and viewers alike; I actually found it intriguing. There are some "scratch your head" moments, and there are no effects to speak of, however I thought the filmmakers did a fairly good job with atmosphere and the moody as heck performance by Sara Foster was spot on. Always enjoy seeing Cary Elwes and Michael Biehn do their thing. Not scary, not arty, but there's just enough meat on the story to be watchable at least.

Killing Them Softly
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A gangster movie only peripherally about the mob. This pointless "dark comedy" has some good performances and some wonderfully shot violent scenes, but seems more intent on hitting you over the head with its message of economic doldrums and how they are handled "in the family" than telling a good story and entertaining. Yet somehow, the critics loved it. Go figure.

Psychosis (2010)
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Bad movie. Poorly written, amateurishly acted (and I generally enjoy Charisma Carpenter), slowly paced, simplistic effects - you get the idea. Not one redeeming quality in this wreck of a movie. A crime writer had a mental breakdown. She marries the man who helped her get through it. They move to the sticks in jolly old England and strange things begin to happen, making her question her sanity...
