Week after week I apparently find ways to theme my rentals without realizing it beforehand. Scratch that, I totally did it on purpose, and you know it’s true cuz I said totally. A couple of weeks ago I went with creature features, and this week’s selection of The Nines and Being John Malkovich has me […]Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
This week I have spent plenty of time at the theater and gaming (Rage FYI), but I managed to fit some movie rentals in this weekend so that I would have thoughts to share with you guys (yes I do realize how narcissistic that sounds). This week we’ve got two films with Natalie Portman, The […]Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
This week I apparently decided to go with slightly older creature features (also reading Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, which both stays in the same vain and explains why I have only gotten two movies in). Both films wear their age in similar ways; however, From Dusk Till Dawn rises above this in other ways by […]Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
This week of non-new-releases includes Griff the Invisible (which is technically in theaters, but deserves to be in this post because of it’s short run), Priest, and Uncertainty.Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
And I am back with “For Your Renting Pleasure,” a supposed-to-be-weekly post that made it maybe 2 weeks tops before fizzling out. My bad. For those of you who don’t remember this is basically a compilation post of movies I watched that week of the non-new-release variety, whether they be rentals, watched through the Netflix […]Read more "For Your Renting Pleasure"
First things first, if you haven’t seen A Serious Man, I would recommend watching it before reading this. If you don’t follow my advice, don’t get mad at me when I tell you that Bruce Willis was a ghost…I’ve said too much… After I finished watching A Serious Man last year, I was stunned. It […]Read more "A Serious Analysis"
I sure hope the man upstairs is too busy going about his Godly chores to sit down and watch this movie, because if he does, Legion might just be reason enough to bring on the next apocalypse. As the story goes, when God loses faith in mankind he catastrophically shakes his global Etch-A-Sketch to clear […]Read more "Rental Review – Legion"
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a beautiful looking film with a really intriguing story, but unfortunately doesn’t answer all of the questions I wish it had. Looks like I am going to just have to use my imagination to fill in the blanks (See what I did there? “Imagination”? That’s right, I went there…) […]Read more "Rental Review – The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus"
The Time Traveler’s Wife may be about a man who uncontrollably jumps around within a certain span of time, but at its basic level it is a love story. A love story that unfortunately takes a rocky start with its depiction on screen in concern to dialog and pacing, but eventually it finds itself and […]Read more "Rental Review – The Time Traveler’s Wife"
The Hurt Locker may be a beautifully shot film, but it is far from the perfection I was expecting after all the hype it has been drenched in, especially post Oscars. To sum it up, I think the best way to describe the movie is to compare it to the subject matter of the film, […]Read more "Rental Review – The Hurt Locker"
