    As someone in a very long term relationship, I found this movie incredibly disturbing. Seemed like a very realistic depiction of the events that lead up to an affair.

    Watched Ip Man on NetFlix last night. Not really a fan of martial arts flicks anymore, but this was a surprisingly good movie. Looking forward to watching part 2 tonight.

    Zero Dark Thirty

    Exceptionally well made thriller (though we all know how it ends). Has a documentary feel so it's short on character development, but the performances are splendid.

    Forrest Gump.

    Don't know how many times I've seen it by now, but I can't help but watch it when it airs on TV.

    Parental Guidance

    Ever go to a comedy and NOBODY in the audience laughs? We saw this film by default when our first choice was sold-out, and the silence was deafening. Comedy, Steve Martin once said, is not pretty, and this film makes the mistake of trying to be sweet and sentimental, which destroys the chance of real humor. Avoid this dog.

    Christoph Waltz is just brilliant again!!

    surely Malkovich could do a great job in that role (or any for that matter) .. but to me it looks like Tarantino wrote that part just for Christoph ('german' doc turned bounty hunter)

    I saw Looper recently with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis. I thought it was really good action movie

    Agreed, awesome movie, and Waltz was just as good as he was in Inglorious *******s.

    Jack Reacher - not a half bad movie at all. I doubt it'll gain any critical acclaim but it was entertaining.

    watched looper a couple night ago, was not impressed at all

    close to a major bust..only agreed more after reading some reviews on imdb

    Ted, however, provided many laughs (6-7/10)

    Gangster Squad

    Despite a top-heavy cast (Penn, Nolte, Brolin, Gosling, Stone) this film breaks no new ground, wheeling out every gangster film cliche. Ultimately, not very satisfying.

    Saw The Hobbit. Spend almost 20 bucks on that crap.

    LOTR was awesome. But this one reminded me of some sort of children adventure flick like Joruney to the Center of the Earth.
    What a crap ass movie that was.

    Life of Pie on the other hand was very enjoyable.

    I watched "A Streetcar Named Desire" last night. Boy, the young Brando was sooooo good looking back then. Great film.

    Mad Max 1 and 2 were on AMC yesterday so I watched the first one. They're being played again right now so I'm watching again. :) Always surprised by how young Mel looks in the first one.

    Not a big Mel Gibson fan but Mad Max 1 and 2 are my favorite Mel films by far. Braveheart is a bit of a distant third.

    Zero Dark 30 was pretty good, a lot longer than I expected, if you're expecting a movie focusing on Seal Team 6, this isn't it, most of the movie is dedicated to the intelligence side.

    Dark Shadows. Depp is hilarious.

    Sound track/album is GOAT.

    Skyfall. Thought it was one of the best Bond movies in a while.

    Looper - decent movie. Started out as kind of a cool, time paradox, action chase movie, then turned into Akira with time travel.

    Saw Django Unchained yesterday.

    As others have said, it's a fantastic movie. Waltz deserves a statue for his performance.

    No car chases, no leaping off tall buildings, no time travel, but more intensity than any of the films with all that crap. Not for stimulus-bound thinkers.

    Finally saw Skyfall
    If we take bond's and Javier Bardem's performance and the pretty bond girl out of the movie, we are left with a steamy pile of sh*t.
    There are more holes in the plot than a pasta strainer
