    It's Kind of a Funny Story - very enjoyable.

    American Pie Beta House - predictable, but funny.

    Drive, with Ryan Gosling. Very gritty film, lots of violence. Not as good as the book, but Albert Brooks makes a pretty good bad guy.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes - surprisingly good IMHO.

    I'm also working my way through the whole Samurai Champloo series on netflix streaming.

    Amadeus (1984), director's cut.

    Again. For the fourth (fifth?) time.

    Seriously, this is probably my favorite movie.

    Warrior. Amazing flick. Nolte deserves the Oscar nod for playing himself.

    "Grey"

    Complete Intensity, but deep at certain points... Very good but very harsh!

    Would recommend...

    Oh thats too bad...

    I want to see this, mainly to support Lucas putting money up (couldn't get financing) to produce a big budget film with majority minority cast.

    "Puss in Boots" - best film I've seen in years, actually the first film I've seen in years. Still, very good. Funny and moving.

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - finally saw it, disappointing.

    Didn't like the English voice over, subtitles would have been better. Expected so much more, I guess I watched it a decade too late.

    Cedar Rapids: Overall, pretty entertaining and some of the one liners from John C Reilly keep us laughing at this one.

    Finally got to see The Artist, which exceeded even my very high expectations. I thought it was wonderful and am eager to see it a second time. The lead actor delivered a remarkable performance, I thought.

    The Help......finally Viola Davis front and center. I admired her in the short bits I saw her in earlier movies, which she always shined.

    Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest

    Great film for lovers of Tribe and hip-hop. Made me go back to my mp3 player and load up all my favorite Tribe songs. Been rocking that playlist for the past week.

    Loved Tribe because their music was still cool, but they ween't trying to be gangsters or thugs. It was just about rhymes and incredible beats.

    The tree of Life ... I kind of liked because the director tried a different approach to show the internal struggle people have in life but it did not needed to be so complicated. Beautiful photography though.

    Watching 'The Tree of Life' is like watching paint dry. It's for the artsy fartsy crowd.
    Sean Penn is completely pointless and irrelevant in the movie.

    Ghost Rider 2. Not as good as the first, there wasn't anything as cool as seeing Sam Elliott riding on a burning horse in the moonlit desert with Ghost Rider by his side.

    Still some fun moments though, and Nic Cage was back to his crazy best.

    Some good action flicks have been on recently that I like. Past week or so I've watched Blade, Commando, and Eraser.

    Edit: As soon as I post I realize what a dope I am! I forgot one of the classics! Die Hard was on the other day as well :D

    American History X

    A little crudely organized but an effective treatise on intolerance. More soul satisfying than entertaining.

    Good animation and CGI, very disappointing plot storyline and ending.

    Chronicle

    Teens with supernatural powers. Predictably, not all goes well. An entertaining first film from a 26 year old director.

    The End of the Affair - 1999. Ralph Fiennes is brilliant, good performances by the other two main actors as well. I would recommend it, well worth watching.

    She does actually.

    FYI, imo, this is the first movie that comes very close to describing the ground reality. Other wall st movies are a bit of stretch.
