Project A 2

I rented this movie, thinking it was Project A... the original that I had seen so many years ago.

Sigh.

I was wrong. This movie had one REALLY good fight scene and the rest was clumsy. You could tell Jackie didn't have his chops on this one. The "axe gang" in this one is really funny though and the handcuff chase/fight is fantastic.

Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay

I think it's possible this was funnier than the original.

Believe it or not, solid writing, smart acting and direction. And with the exception of the Amsterdam scenes -- which were obviously filmed on Super 8 Digital Cameras -- a lot of money was spent on sets and scenes.

Lots of Marijuana jokes and the bill of rights gag is really too much (not to mention Kumar's masturbations scene).

Certainly not a movie for kids, but adults look for shock humor will be pleased.

Iron Man

I got to see the movie two days early, thanks to a friend with review status like powers. We waited in line for an hour to sit in the second row and see a massively giant screen in the Arclight theatre in hollywood

And my review is....

B-

Great first hour of movie.

And that's all I'm going to say until the movie releases.

Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: Media & the Israel-Palestine Conflict

You can watch the entire documentary here.

Extremely important. Without saying so, it points to the CFR. But, watch for yourself. Title says it all.
