Equlibrium 7.5/10


Sci-fi action film set in a future where human emotion is outlawed. It's sort of like a mix of the Matrix and V for Vendetta. There are quite a few stylized action sequences ala matrix and a corrupt government tries to control its people ala Vendetta. Our hero is Christian Bale, who begins to realize things aren't what they seem after he misses a dose of his daily "emotion blocking" pills.

This is quite a guilty pleasure, I enjoyed this movie.

Stepbrothers 9/10

freakin' hilarious :-)

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly make a great comedic duo. Lots of quotable lines and outrageous situations... and the mid-credits scene is a classic. Also, we got two uncut trailers for Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder- they both look awesome, I can't wait to see em'.

Magnolia - Terrific acting from so many players in this epic. I'm not the biggest Tom Cruise fan in the world, but he was really impressive as a male chauvenist motivational speaker. There were some scenes where his character was so emotional, I felt like I was in the room with him. William H. Macy is always a pleasure. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who's quickly becoming one of my favorite actors, is tremendous. The guy just nails every role he takes on and this film is no exception. The film itself is so emotional gripping from the start, it's something you really do have to see for yourself. 9/10

Magnolia is freaking awesome...Julianne Moore really cracks me up when she's making her confessions (which i cant repeat here)

i just saw The Ruins...college kids, mexico, Mayan ruins, killer plant, gratuitus T&A, random HJ scene, adapted from a book
5/10

damn i new i should have stayed for the credits. the people in the theater were annoying me so much i just had to get out of there immediately. ah well i'll just catch it when it comes out.it was the typical ferrell/reily fare but i did think it was better than ricky bobby and yeah i can't wait for Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder but TT comes out the same day as the new Star Wars Clone Wars movie so it will take the back seat to that for a couple days.

True Romance is one of my all time favorite films, I had just watched it a few days before which is probably why I wanted to watch those others. ;-D

I read that both Brad Pitt and Leo DiCaprio are rumored to be cast for Inglorious Bastards. :-?

Fight Club: 8.5/10

I saw it for the first time last night. It started out a little slow but really picked up about 30 minutes in. From that point on there was never another dull moment. The majority of the movie is exciting and suspenseful and leads up nicely to a couple of huge plot twists at the end.

I'll probably have to watch it again to make sure I fully understood it. Things are revealed so fast at the end it can be tough to keep pace.
