Movie # 30: Just finished watching this. I took it out of the library after 3 people recommended it…and because of a wrong trivia question. Written by Kevin Jarre and co-directed by him and George P. Cosmatos, in 1993. I’m kicking myself now, because how have I not seen this sooner?! On another note, during … Continue reading

Movie #28: I’m going to make this short but sweet. Go watch this movie! Plot: A lawyer (Paul Giamatti), who is also a volunteer wrestling couch, struggles with his finances leading him to make a morally questionable decision. Everything gets complicated when his client’s grandson comes looking for him. It sounds boring, but it’s not! … Continue reading

Movie # 27: Written and directed by Leslye Headland and Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (who have worked together since SNL). This was an off-Broadway creation of Headland’s before she adapted it into a movie and it caught my attention opening the credits with Sleigh Bells (pure awesomeness).  Plot: The “B-faces” are 4 friends from high … Continue reading

Check out everyone’s reviews and posts, for a number of different movies that were filmed on the backlot. Here’s my submission:  It was … Continue reading

Movie # 26: So I went to go see this on Friday. It was pretty good, but it wasn’t amazing…I mean I don’t think it was worth paying $22 at the independent movie theater. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t horrible…I’m just cheap. The Plot: Matt Pandamiglio a struggling, stand-up comic, begins to be pressured into asking … Continue reading

So I’m going to sum up the three movies I just watched in a quick review round-up! Which means I’m half-way done with movies…and no where near that on books, ugh. Movie # 23 (on Netflix): Written and directed by J.J. Abrams. I will pretty much watch anything with his name in the title…although I … Continue reading

Movie # 22:  Are you as excited as I am that I got to see this?! I found a little Indie theater that was showing it!!! After seeing the trailer I was looking forward to watching it, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up. The rating isn’t that great on IMDB and Andy … Continue reading

Movie # 21 (was on my queue!): This isn’t what I expected it to be, but I’m glad.  I’ve heard so many things and the thing that turned me off the most was reviews of Vincent Gallo’s Brown Bunny. There was so much controversy about it, that I wondered about watching this one…like I said, I’m glad … Continue reading

Movie # 20: I did it again. I watched another movie I didn’t get or really like. Another “What the hell did I just watch?!” I got the main concept, but the progression of the story and action was a little ridiculous…in my opinion anyway. The plot: A team of astronauts, in a future where … Continue reading
