La Moustache - B- An odd artsy/psychological movie about identity, sanity, reality, and such. Some nice photography, but it didn't work for my so much - which might well have had a lot to do with thinking we were renting a commedy about a dood shaving off his moustache and everyone around him then telling him he'd never had one.
Wag the Dog - B+ Good cast, relatively funny while still trying to be meaningful. Willie Nelson and Dustin Hoffman were awesome.

True Romance gets a B. The oft-talked about film had some decent dialogue and an all star cast of cameos. Brad Pitt's character was great. A little disappointing however.

The execution of Wanda Jean gets a B as well. There's not much to say about it. i think she did have a case to have a stay of execution. I also couldn't help thinking about her two victims and how they didn't get to have a documentary made about them.

The Kite Runner - Great movie about an Afghani boy and his father who leave as the Russians invade. As a man living in America, he goes back to rescue a friends son from the Taliban. All the Muslim characters in the movies hate and swear to destroy all Americans and spend 90 minutes bathing in the blood of infidels. Ok so I made up that last part, but I expected it after reading this board.

Solid A.

Outstanding movie, although I don't know what happened between 1:49 and 1:54 due to a shitty DVD. Great movie. Not particularly uplifting.

Solid A.

Bad Boys==> One of the best opening scenes ever. The rest-Meh. Stylish, but incomprehensible. Tea Leoni's legs and Will Smith are the best parts of the movie.

2 future Sopranos actors Pantaleoni and Imperioli (sp x 2?) in supporting, but meaty, and poorly written roles.

C/C+

Par for the course for a Michael Bay movie in my opinion.

Dirty, Pretty Things--> B+/A- Grimm story about illegals in Great Britain. Well-written and acted. Not a pretty story.

The Doctor: How come I've never seen you people before?

Okwe: Because we are the people you do not see. We are the ones who drive your cabs. We clean your rooms. And suck your cocks.

Yep, pretty depressing movie. Nearly as depressing as Requiem for a Dream.

I guess you didn't see mine:
Dirty, Pretty Things - A: Kind of an odd combination - immigrant love story hooked to a thriller that combines the best of both, while avoiding the cliches of either. Really excellent cast across the board as well.

good flick, and that was a great line

That's why I got it. I might have graded it down a little because I had to watch it in three sittings due to all the freaking football on.

Almost Famous--> B

Good, not great. A lot of Rock 'n' Roll cliches that I now think are bullshit. But still, captures what we thought it was. I guess. I don't remember.

It bored me, the wife and the kids.

The only good thing was Steve Buscemi's character.

Hollywoodland-I'm not sure I know what just happened, but the acting and direction were really good. Adrien Brody--> A+++
I'm reading a lot of the Hard Case Crime series (google, motherfucker) and this was a lot like those books, so that was pretty cool, but I will say, I didn't particularly care much what happened.
Ben Affleck was pretty good.

C+/B-

Good idea.
I was thinking about seeing it, but it looks like Samuel Jackson will scream in it, so I might wait for DVD so I can control the volume.

There Will Be Blood. - F for Fell Asleep. Wow, eight shades of boring. I woke up at the end to see the art house ending. Still unimpressive. Lewis was very good as a conniving psychopath, but I couldn't muster any emotion for any of the characters one way or the other.

There Will be Blood- A. Daniel Day-Lewis doesn't do bad acting jobs. He is just as horrible a man as he was in Gangs of New York. Maybe he's just a bad guy in real life.

There Will Be Blood- B+ The only thing this movie was missing was a coherent plot. Daniel Day-Lewis and the teenage kid from Little Miss Sunshine should win Oscars for their performances.
