Finally saw No Country For Old Men.

Really entertaining 8.5/10.

Javier Bardem = fantastic, magnificent bad guy.

Tommy Lee Jones' character was one of the most useless I have ever seen. Nearly on a Jarjar Binks level. Did he actually achieve anything?

The end was actually executed pretty well --> Blah blah, the end. ;-D

Last King of Scotland- 7/10. I thought it was worth watching, but not my favorite.

Jar Jar Binks? That is harsh. Jar Jar Binks was useless in every facet. Sheriff Bell might be useless as a character but his dramatic purpose is critical. He is the main character albeit a non-traditional one and he's also the only subjective character in the film that actually changes so without him this story falls apart like a house of cards. Just my $.02.

The Nines- I dont know.

I really dont know what to give it, it is a very strange movie but if you can pick up on it it is pretty well rounded.
But I am not suggesting you watch this in a non-sober state of mind, and be fully aware because it is EXTREMELY weird, and somewhat hard to follow.

I feel that in movies the good guys and bad guys have to provoke certain emotions.
If you have a good guy like Tommy Lee Jones' character and most times he appears on screen you groan and roll your eyes, he's kind of not the good guy anymore. Maybe the film-makers did this on purpose, but by the end of the movie his character's screen time was nearly fast forward-worthy.
The "dramatic purpose" is kind of defeated if you couldn't give a crap about what happens to them (and maybe you're secretly hoping Javier Bardem catches up to them).

Also - in chase movies like this the cops are usually behind, but not far behind. TLJ was like 6 months behind, which added to the uselessness of his character.

Starsky and Hutch- 8/10

Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller are comedy gold together and my first viewing of this film proves it...hilarious scenes left and right and Snoop Dogg is great in his role as well...i hope owen wilson has a full recovery after his suicide attempt so he can get back to doing what does best, making movies like this. ;-D
