True Romance--> B

Kind of sloppy and over the top, but lots of good acting and great lines.

The scene with Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper--> A+++ Classic.



Damn dude. You just now watched True Romance.... You must be old or something.

Eggplant



It was released 60 days before v1 was born. I'm still catching up on pop culture from Summer of '93 through about 1998.

Fortunately I didn't miss much.

The Usual Suspects--> A
I saw this awhile back and wasn't that impressed. It came across better this time. Great cast, acting and an original idea with a clever twist.

Have you seen Rocky yet? You'd probably like it. Check out Jaws too also.

He's got great insight into the QB position.

We upped it to six at a time so the wife and tater tots could have a supply for the road when they went to FLA over Thanksgiving. We set it back to 2 at a time, but I have until next week before that takes effect. Next up: Snatch.

Tokyo Story: A - Movie about post war Japan and a couple who goes to Tokyo to see their kids who regard their presence as a hassle. Except for the widow of their son who died in the war. It's a pretty incisive commentary that still holds true.

Snatch--> About as high a B+ as you can get. Like a Brit Pulp Fiction only even wittier. The three black stooges were . Inventive, original and entertaining overall.

After a lot of agonizing contemplation, I've come to the conclusion that Brad Pitt is just flat out cooler than me. That sux.

All of the acting, but especially Brad Pitt--> A+

Fuck the B+. Make it an A.

Nobel Son--> B
Don't go see this if you are looking for a normal movie. Lots of weird Alpha Dog-like cuts and scene changes. Great acting and a different, inventive plot, twists and ending.

I Mary Steenburgen and all of the acting is really good imho.

I kind of wish I had decided to see Milk, but I think I'll watch this again on Blu Ray when it comes out and appreciate it more.

Previews at Lefont >>> Previews at Regal or UA theaters. Movies I might actually want to see.

I give "Slumdog Millionaire" two thumbs up. It would make my 2008 top 10 right now.
The helicopter scene is truly memorable.
I guess its not an true India film without a dance scene.

Fresh gets an A. It's really one of the great pieces of pieces of filmmaking from the 90s. I watch it every time it comes on. Not quite a realistic plot, but that's OK.



Confirm. Great movie. Almost "Wire" like.

I like the scene where Fresh's little sister comes in to his room and gives him the talking-to about not screwing it up for the rest of them.

By the end of the year, I will probably have seen only 2 movies in the theater:

1. Kung Fu Panda - took my 3 1/2 year old. Huge mistake. Had to leave 35 minutes into the movie

2. The Wrestler - assuming it is in Atlanta by the end of the year. A 'rasslin movie has to be twice as good as any other for the elites to give it any buzz, so this sucker must kick some ass. Plus Marisa Tomei's boobies make a guest appearance.

Dirty Harry--> A+++

One of the best movies ever, especially in the context of its times. v1's 1st "R" movie, though PG13 is the new "R".

January 16 - The Wrestler

"Mickey Rourke makes his comeback."

Apparently actual professional wrestlers got to watch an early screening of the film and "cried". I can only imagine how this storyline will go.
