Joe vs. the Volcano

$6 at target.

A steal at three times the price.

One of the funniest, smartest movies ever made.

Totally underrated.

Wife had never even HEARD of this movie, let alone seen it.

Wow.

What a treat.

Requiem for a Dream

Re-re-watching one of the best movies ever made.

Fantastic.

Ellen Burstyn gives one of the greatest film performances ever.

"I'm gonna be on television."

And who knew the Jared Leto and Marlon Wayans could act?

Marlon Wayans!!!

'nuff said

Lions for Lambs

...or Lambs for Lions or whatever this ESSAY is called, Redford has finally made a propaganda film as slanted as Fahrenheit 9/11. And how cleverly he tries to package it as three separate tirades against the war.

What an awful script too. The dialog is so bad in places, I thought the actors were children in big people clothes trying to put on a stage play... only without dirty words.

Oh. And look. The slack-mouthed college student is disillusioned and too smart for his own good. How idyllic. And pure. And not at all an attempt to look like you're reaching out to the myspace generation.

Yawn.

This movie is a 2 out of 10. Really. It starts out a LITTLE tantalizing and quickly becomes an essay against the War and the republicans.

How quaint.

Look, Mr. Redford. We already hate the Republicans. Your childish student film just makes you look pedantic and flaccid. We recommend you release that damn Jesse James movie.

And pronto.

Catch Me If You Can

Sissy boy Steven Speilberg finally makes a movie without a sappy or belabored ending.

Who knew?

Tom Hanks is fantastic in this movie and Leo is great as always. I am one of the few people how actually likes him in films, I think.

Christopher Walken is fantastic!!
