Rating History

Dawn of the Dead
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Absolutely hated this remake, probably because I adore the original so much. Hollywood is still hell-bent on "remaking" good classic films. What did we do to deserve this punishment?

The Fighter
The Fighter (2010)

This film struck me as damn charming and damn realistic. The whole town is incredible, Bale's character is funny as balls, and the family reminds me a lot of the big, manipulative families I've grown up with. Nobody's family is normal, and at least this one looked like it came out of real life - no gloss or sugar coating. No model physiques or people looking way too good for the role they're playing. The term "boxing drama" paints this film in a far too bland and boring hue. It's a unique glimpse into the lives of how townies actually behave, haha. My town has it's own junkie, even - and looks/acts/sounds just like Bale's character.

Mickey Rourke is amazing, and this film strikes me on an even more personal level since it seems like it could be about the dude who works at the grocery store down the street. Working class NJ is beautiful in its dank decay. The characters are raw and realistic. "The only place I get hurt is out there. The world don't give a shit about me." I can't like this film enough.

I loved the atmosphere and visuals - and not to give anything away, but if you're annoyed with the characters - just wait and see what happens to them.

Horrible Bosses

I first wanted to see this just because Charlie Day is in it, but then as it got started, I realized how much I wanted him to be Charlie Kelly from It's Always Sunny... and he isn't. Jason Bateman is only mildly funny (as usual), and Sudeikis I'm not as familiar with. Kevin Spacey takes the cake with a few utterly hilarious scenes, but otherwise I'd wait to see this on a rainy day when it will surely be in rotation on the premium cable movie channels.
