8/10.


I liked that movie a lot. Charlie Kaufman is a great writer.
You have to see Being John Malkovich if you liked Adaption. Same writer, director - but a tad better and weirder than Adaption.

I watched The Ringer the other night. I thought that the movie would be mean-spirited and degrade handicap people. Not like that at all, it's actually a heartfelt movie. There are many funny scenes but not too many laugh out loud hilarious moments. Katherine Heigl is hot. Johnny Knoxville is only decent here, the supporting cast is what I really liked. The actors that played mentally challenged olympians were very good and likable. Definitely not oscar-worthy material, but a good way to spend 1.5 hours on the coach. 7.5/10

The Program. Without a doubt the best sports movie ever made. I have watched it 20 times in a span of two weeks. It's just that goodsky. Also, I am quite partial to this movie since Fath Garf's friend stars as the quarterback.

X-Men: The Last Stand

I saw this on Thursday, I wasn't all that pumped for it as I wanted to go see District B13 or whatever it is called, but this movie was pretty entertaining.

I don't know much about X-Men except the characters and their powers so I didn't care about any of the inconsistencies. Good action and a pretty good plot, with some funny lines sprinkled in ("I'm the Juggernaut, BITCH).

8/10

Saw The Da Vinci Code a few nights ago. Not sure why it was getting all the bad reviews, I really enjoyed it. Seeing it was enough to make me finally start reading the book.

9/10

The Break Up

very enjoyable romantic comedy. everyone was great and it was pretty funny. not completely over the top as most of VV's movies though. nice to see him in a more real acting role again.

9/10 for me.

I saw X3 yesterday and thought it was a good flick. That juggernut guy was funny as hell b/c I think he was actually trying to act in those few lines he had :-b

Saw this last night. I figured it wouldn't degrade handicapped people, because

a) That's dangerous ground to tread
b) It got the blessing from the special olympics

That being said, the movie had it's moments, but overall it was just a summer trash movie. Five minutes in, my buddy and I guessed the entire plot line down to every last detail. Got about 95% right. Yawn.

I think you guys were missing the point on the "I'm the Juggernaught, Bitch" part. That was a little egg thrown in there for internet people.

Jesus ... my friends enlightened me to this about a month ago, and we've been quoting it endlessly since then. It's amazing that even after the 1000000 th viewing, this movie is still amazing.

Charles, no! ... my face! What the f*** is this s***? Oh, I'm trippin' off acid.

-- then when I saw it in theatres, that was the highlight of my life to this point. ;-D
