The Giant Mechanical Man - The two leads were really sweet and had good chemistry but some of the supporting characters (especially Malin Akerman and Topher Grace) were so despicable that I couldn't enjoy any scenes they were in. Too bad because I like Jenna Fischer a lot and she could have a solid career in romances or comedies after The Office ends. 5/10

Catch and Release - Surprisingly Kevin Smith probably gave the strongest performance in this film. He was funny and endearing. Timothy Olyphant is a good actor but he shouldn't be the lead in romantic comedies - he's too creepy and sleazy looking. The story was a little thin too. 5/10

Chasing Amy - This is probably my favorite Kevin Smith film. Ben Affleck is fantastic as Holden, as is the rest of the cast in their roles, especially Joey Lauren Adams. To me this is Kevin Smith's most well written movie.

5/10. Super disappointed. Some wonderful acting but the narrative was to disjointed for me to truly feel invested in what was happening. They cut from past and present to fast and to often, cutting potentially intriguing scenes too short. Anytime I felt a scene interesting they cut it! The narrative does even out about 40 minutes in but by then the movie succeeded at keeping me at a distance so by the time the film reaches its dramatic peak, I was sadly completely unaffected by it. Maybe a re-watch is in order.

Read the book, instead

The Adjustment Bureau - I thought this film was above average, but it definitely wasn't as good as I originally expected after watching trailers and various TV spots. I think the one aspect of the film that bothered me was that the antagonist (the Adjustment Bureau) never really felt antagonistic. I never felt that they were really that menacing. I know that the movie was more about freewill and destiny; however, I think it would have been nice to know more, a lot more, about the Adjustment Bureau. Maybe they were avoiding an explanation like the architect from The Matrix trilogy, but at the same time I felt I didn't know enough about them to really care what happened to David and Elise.

I hated this movie. Could be because I wasn't alive in the 70s or because of the genuine terrible acting, editing, and overall humor.

Paris When It Sizzles - I appreciate what they were going for in this but the film just came off as silly. The film-within-a-film was supposed to be ridiculous but the narrative surrounding it was just as poorly written. I did like Tony Curtis' comedic supporting role however and Holden and Hepburn were charming if nothing else. 5/10

Razorback



Holy pork kebabs, that was fun! Ozploitation was alive and kicking up a fuss in the ‘80’s, and this cult hit exemplified gory excessiveness in the giant animal genre with ample violence, unapologetic twists of fortune, and of course many, many sight gags both big and small to make any self-respecting horror nut smirk. Whether it’s the hero’s hilarious XXX fishnet-and-stocking designed chef’s apron, to the scene where the razorback steals some Aussie yokel’s TV (and half his living room with it) while he’s in the middle of a show, I had a blast. Think Tremors, without the restraint shown by Hollywood when it comes to playing it safe with main characters. Sharp photography on this one, too, with a lot of unconventional use of color filters, jarring edits and in-camera tricks of perspective to turn the Australian Outback into a hellishly bizarre nightmarescape, plus the ferocious use of sound to sell the power of the beast during the attack scenes. Then there's Bill Kerr as the hardcore boar hunter who ostensibly plays the Quint role to the hero’s Brody, who had all the badass scenes and one-liners. My favorite? “It has only two states of being – dangerous or dead. There is no in-between.” How can you not love that shit? Come on.

-> 8/10

THE LOST BOYS - 8/10

Still a solid, well made and interestingly constructed vampire flick. I like how much time it spends not having all-out vampire mayhem until the end of the second act. Instead, it takes its time building on the family's adjustment to a new town, and an obvious vampire infestation that is never actually SEEN until late in the game. Jason Patric should stop being so into himself and look into more mainstream stuff, because he kicked ass in this. Just like he did in NARC and INCOGNITO.
Shamelessly - and helplessly - stuck in 1987, it's the storytelling itself that keeps it timeless. It works even today, but also embraces all the gaudy excess of fashion and style from its time.

Nah, I hate generic indie films for hipsters, but I find Mark Duplass such a compelling presence that I've liked all the films he's acted in, including this one.

STRANGER THAN FICTION - 10/10

I can't get over how amazing this is. It's the third time I've seen it, and I purposefully waited over three years to watch it again, because it's like watching it anew. I love the tenderness, deliberate pace, and the astounding screenplay.
That says nothing for the actual performances. It's Will Ferrell doing something I've never seen him do before; or since. He is so poetically internal, reserved and somewhat lost. When he loses grip after hearing the line "little did he know...", I can't help but fall completely for his plight. Hook, line, and sinker.
Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson bring their A-games, which is not uncommon. I invite their genius.
Also, it's Maggie Gyllenhaal's second-greatest performance (after SECRETARY). She and Ferrell worked great together, and when she melts and bends to Will's will, I too am awed by his odd behavior.

Bah. I can't wait to see this again in a few years!

Part One Of My James Bond Marathon



Two of my top Bond films. I always go back and forth on which one actually is my favorite


Brosnan's second effort is not as good as his first but I still love it. It's one of the most under-appreciated in the franchise.



Craigs second entry is no where near the greatness of Casino Royale. It would benefited from a better director and villain.

If Plan 9 From Outer Space is the Citizen Kane of worst movies then this should be considered the Casablanca of worst movies. Yup it was painful to watch. :

The Incredible Hulk - This is among my favorite Marvel films. It's such a breath fresh air after the bad taste the 2003 film left behind. Louis Leterrier did a great job directing this film. He really captured the essence of the Hulk, and directed a truly great comic book adaption. I thought the CGI was fantastic--The special effects truly brought to life the sheer power and force of the Hulk. Edward Norton was definitely an unexpected choice to play Bruce Banner, but he turned out to be great (as he is in just about every role). Tim Roth was great as well.
Spoiler:
I absolutely loved the epic battle between Hulk and Abomination at the end of the movie. High octane in your face destruction. It was great!
