I also saw Safe House this weekend with Denzel Washington and Green Lantern. Typical CIA conspiracy plot, but the action scenes were very well done. Worth the rent for sure.

Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson's newest contribution to the world, is absolutely worth paying full theater prices. Ed Norton was great. Bruce Willis was great. The movie was great.

I checked it out this weekend. I agree.

Paul Rudd was his usual awesome but the supporting cast was freaking great. Ken Marino as his brother won the movie, Joe Lo Truglio killed every scene as did Justin Theroux (sp?). Jennifer Aniston kind of dragged the movie down a bit though.


Yea I'm a huge Paul Rudd fan. He's good at being funny without making it seem he's trying too hard or really trying at all. Joe Lo Truglio gets some of the best smaller comedic parts in movies that I can remember. If he wasn't already sort of established he'd probably be funny as hell and a breathe of fresh air on SNL.

As a devout Wes Anderson fan, I was disappointed overall with this effort. While it was a aesthetically pleasing film as usual, there was just something off with this movie. I don't know if it was the seemingly slapsticky moments (lightning hit, flash flood jump), but I think the film lost it's way toward the end. Definitely better than alot of the junk out there, it just wasn't one of his best. As usual though, I'm sure I'll like it more after multiple viewings.

Mildly entertaining. Too bad we were bombarded by trailers and tv ads as it diminished the overall viewing. Still, it's just funny enough to be worth the rent.

Finally got around to seeing The Avengers Saturday night. :thumbright:

The wife actually came along somewhat begrudgingly and had zero clue who most of the characters were but even she enjoyed it.

And yes, Hulk steals the movie with a few choice lines and the ragdoll scene was the best.

Really captured the feel of the Marvel universe IMO. Could have done without Samuel L to be quite honest though.

Finally getting around to watching HBO's "The Pacific"... followup to Band of Brothers. Not liking it as much as BoB. They jumped right into it without the same level of character development. And there are too many scenes at nighttime... maybe that's accurate and most of the major early battles were at night, but it doesn't make for easy watching when you're spending too much energy trying to see details and figure out what's going on. What these guys did was no less impressive than the fellas in Europe, and in some respects more so, but having gotten through 4 chapters so far, I would have liked to seen a little more emphasis on the naval skirmishes as well.

Jeff, Who Lives at Home

Jason Segal and Ed Helms, along with Susan Sarandon.

Guy lives at home in his mom's basement. Follows his gut feelings on things. Adventure ensues.

Well worth the redbox rental fee. Check it out.

"Think Like a Man"

The wife insisted on seeing it this weekend. Needless to say, I had extremely low expectations. I don't know if it was the couple drinks I had at dinner before the movie, but I laughed pretty much non-stop. Kevin Hart just killed every scene. Check it out on dvd.

As a native Bostonian suburbanite, I felt compelled to go see "Ted". The jokes were hit or miss, but more hit than miss. However, I probably found some of the regional humor funnier from the familiarity of things I've grown up with. I'm still chuckling over the teddy bear impression of Boston girls getting laid. As always I appreciated the local scenery and knew most of the facades/addresses having lived and/or worked in the city for 20 years. General rule of thumb is that a Boston-based movie requires either a Wahlberg, Damon, or Affleck to not suffer from universal criticism about horribly rendered accents, and this holds true once again. For me it was worth the price of admission, despite the progression towards sappiness. The whole Fenway Park cameo thing has jumped the shark though.

Took my daughter and friends to see "Brave" yesterday. totally enjoyed it. The story was good even if a bit predictable and the animation was amazing. My daughter has already stated this is her favorite movie of all time.
