This thing got 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and everybody else in the theatre loved it. I was bored senseless. Forget the fact that there was not a single explosion, gun, swear word or nipple there was barely anything going on. I can buy a long silent knowing look in a live action movie but the same thing in an animated movie is called a picture. Not a moving picture but just a picture. There were way too many silent knowing looks. I was not swept away into a fairy land of whimsy, I barely stayed awake. Slow quiet movie.


I saw this with my 6 year old and she loved it. There were some slow points with the story but I think that was more for dramatic effect for the little ones. The great music and animation was enough to keep my interest.

Has anyone seen Contagion? I thought it looked good and it got good reviews. The wife is fighting me to watch it.

Conviction - 7/10
True story about a woman who gets herself a law degree and gets her brother acquitted of murder 16 years later. Great acting, very nice story

In Darkness - 9/10
Polish movie (subtitled) about the true story of a polish sewer inspector in Ukraine who helps some Jews escape zee Germans by aiding their hiding in the city sewers for 14 months. Holy crap this movie was good. You really felt the darkness, the dirt, the rats, the grime, the desperation, everything. Anne Frank had it easy. I also liked how it was not a forced, scripted drama. Everything seemed quite real and the characters were distinct, but still subtle. Highly recommended.
TennCare rocks!!!!

21 Jump Street - 8/10 - I thought this was hysterical. Went in with low expectations, just wanted to see a movie as I hadn't been to the theater in 3 or 4 months probably, and I was pleasantly surprised. I laughed out loud throughout the movie. Ice Cube I thought was really funny, as were Hill and Tatum both. I enjoy vulgar, childish humor, though.

Cue AussieDodger coming in and saying how he hates Jonah Hill and he ruins everything, when in reality he's probably having a wank to him right now.

I was trying to use the language Aussie were likely to use, though in retrospect, I should have probably said 'having a fap'

I think that perfectly sums this one up....kids couldn't wait to go see it, I generally don't mind these movies but this one was just "m'eh" for sure.
