Ted (2012)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I thought this was going to be the comedy of the summer, but to be honest I thought it was built up too much. I get it. Seth wants to do the same crude jokes he does on Family Guy (which are getting old by the way), but if I wanted to hear a bunch of d-bag humor, I could just open my window and listen to my jackass neighbor's 3AM drunken rants. It was funny at some points I guess, but ultimately a flop.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

One of the best movies ever made. The acting was so real...I almost forgot I was watching a movie. I felt like I was right there in the ward. Jack Nicholson is the ultimate maverick...not to mention kinda sexy too. He sees the screwed-up flaws in not only the institution but the world as well. This is a fantastic example of what film should be.

Unforgiven (1992)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Great Western. I don't even LIKE westerns that much, but I have to tip my hat (in this case my cowboy hat) to Unforgiven. Clint Eastwood is not only one of the greatest actors of our time, but he is an overall film ICON. He is superb as a director and brings a mysterious quality to all of his characters which I absolutely love. A+.

Blood Simple
Blood Simple (1984)

I decided this summer to rent every (or almost every) Coen Brothers film and watch it, those that I haven't already seen. Joel and Ethan are my favorite duo in Hollywood film-making, so I expected this to be a testament to their greatness. The film started off a little slow, but did eventually progress into a good thriller. I enjoyed the plot, and overall it was a good pick for my movie night.

Lost In Translation
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This was on my summer list of movies to watch. All I can say is that I am so glad it was. To be honest I was never a big fan of Scarlett Johansson; I feel like she was just put in movies because of her looks. But I have to say I am a fan now. The fact that she was only 17 at the time...she just acted well beyond her years. I even appreciated how naturally beautiful she looked. Bill Murray was comic genius. The way he just sulked around in the first 20 minutes just made me laugh even more. Props to Sofia Coppola on this fantastic example of what comedic films can be.
