So Proudly We Hail - This was a very good WWII film that focuses on the nurses serving in the Philippines. There was plenty of action as well as some good love stories. My favorite performer was Paulette Goddard but really everyone did a good job. 9/10

This is 40 - This could have been shorter without losing much of the story but I did like the film overall. Leslie Mann was funnier than I've seen from her before and Paul Rudd does his usual fine job. I didn't like the younger daughter though - she was annoying. 7/10

Compliance - That was fucked up. I can't believe a scam like that really happened. Aside from Dream Walker getting naked very little actually happened in the film. It was all about putting a group of people in a terrible situation for one sick fuck's amusement. 5/10

It Came From Outer Space - I liked the idea of this film but the execution was lacking. Finding out why the aliens were acting like that was a nice twist that is unexpected in films like this. The actors however weren't very good. The special effects and costumes were poor too but that's to be expected in a 1950s B-movie. 6/10

10 Things I Hate About You(1999)-7/10

Uncertainty - ***

Intriguing, if a little silly at times, though it contains one massive plothole at the very end that left going: what? Joseph Gordon Levitt and the very lovely Lynn Collins, are both excellent here.

The Host - ***

Much better than any of the Twilight movies. I was actually very intrigued all the way through the movie. Sure, I suppose the love square going on this movie is a little on the silly side, but I actually liked that part. It was fascinated by it. Plus Saoirse Ronan is actually great here in a part that, when you think about it, it's actually a very challenging part to pull off, but she does it rather superbly. A very underrated performance.

Also known as Humanoids From The Deep. One of my favorite b-grade horror movies.

Penny Serenade - Cary Grant and Irene Dunne were both really good in this emotional roller coaster of a film. They play a couple trying to adopt a child and there is a good amount of both comedy and tragedy along the way. 8/10

The Baytown Outlaws - For a simple action film this was pretty good. A trio of brothers are hired to rescue a kid from a psychopath and this results in plenty of shootouts. It's not a very deep film but it is sort of fun. It also helps that Eva Longoria looked so damn good. 7/10

To Rome With Love - I liked how Woody Allen wove the four separate stories together in this film. My favorite of the four was the one where the husband and wife are separated and both end up at the restaurant with different people. Penelope Cruz was a lot of fun in that one. All four stories had their moments. 8/10

I have been meaning to re-watch this but I haven't gotten around to it, yet. Arnold has some great one-liners in this movie

I was surprised to see how much of a shellacking this took by the critics, given their near universal love of Tony Kaye’s work on American History X. This may not be quite the masterpiece that film was, but Kaye went above and beyond here for a piece of material that’s at once thoughtful in its social theses and searing in its delivery system of bang-on performances and documentarian aesthetic. The interview segments with Brody’s character were a nice touch to really sell the idea of this happening not in some abstract social studies class setting, but in the real world where real kids and teachers are affected by institutional degradation and increasing apathy. There were a few flaws that annoyed me (Christina Hendricks’s poorly written character, the sometimes over the top bluntness with which Kaye portrays neglectful parents and/or their disobedient kids, etc.), but it’s a film that struggles to ask questions about the state of the American education system and make you think about them yourself instead of spoonfeeding what Kaye or writer Carl Lund subjectively thinks is “The Answer”. I was fascinated by how this guy (Brody), a career substitute, could have such a natural connection with these kids that fall through the cracks, yet forces himself to detach from any chance of reaching them for the long-term by committing as a full-time teacher. There are consequences to good teachers giving up and giving in to the despair of parental inaction and an unmotivated classroom. I loved the storyline between Brody and the teenage prostitute, where he finally allows himself to connect in order to inspire the girl to make something better of herself. So even when Kaye seeks to depress the hell out of you, in the end he does give you a ray of hope. He’s good like’at.

-> 9/10

Henry V (1944) - Laurence Olivier did an impressive job creating the scenes for this film. I was less impressed by some of the actors but this is still a good Shakespeare film. 7/10

Leave Her to Heaven - This may be my favorite Gene Tierney performance. She is wonderful is the insanely jealous wife of a writer. It helps that she was absolutely gorgeous as well. I really love how the story develops and we find out what Tierney is capable of. 9/10

They FINALLY got the costume of Snake Eyes right this time around and overall a better film than the 1st one and i know i am not the only one but i thought the mountain scene with all the jumping around was a bit similar to when Duke and Ripcord(?) were running around in those tech suits on the street of Paris France, not only that but it actually FELT like a GI Joe Movie..with CC looking like CC, Snakes Eyes LOOKING like Snake Eyes. Just a fun film. Just tell me if that isn't just a BAD ASS poster of Snake Eyes?!
