Some recent Netflix/rentals:

In Time: 7/10
Kind of an interesting premise, not your run-of-the-mill action flick. I'm becoming more of a fan of Amanda Seyfried the more I see of her. Time for another hot chick draft?

Contraband: 5/10
Run-of-the-mill action flick. Even Kate Beckinsale couldn't make this more than a rental you watch when there's nothing else on.

Gone: 7/10
Another Amanda Seyfried flick, worth watching.

Man on a Ledge: 5/10
Cool name, trailer looked good, but a pretty boring, predictable movie.

Safe House: 5/10
Worth watching I suppose, but nothing memorable.

Mission Impossible III: 4/10
Wow, worst one they've made yet. They're clearly out of ideas.

I was surprised by In Time. I thought it would be terrible, but I gave it a shot, and it was pretty fun.

Going to see Taken 2 tonight because my girlfriend loved the first one and is a big Liam Neeson fan. Pray for me.

I was mildly surprised that I had no inclination to change the channel.

It was bad, but we had fun because we had no expectations and could just make fun of the silliness of it. Obviously would never see it again.

Forgot one. Well, I tried hard to.

Haywire: 3/10

This movie sucked, can't believe I actually sat through the whole thing. I was actually looking forward to seeing what Gina Carano could do in an action role, but holy cow this thing was a disaster.

Lawless. 9/10

Great flick. Definitely worth the $8.00 for popcorn!

Trouble With The Curve...

3/10

close to a bomb...formulaic, predictable..even Clint was ordinary channeling his crusty old man mantle like he did in Gran Torino and Million Dollar Baby...i think i even heard a dirty harry growl and he sings (revisiting his Honky Tonk Blues character ?) !!
corny, they used so many schlocky character actors it looked like a hollywood rest home...no saving graces here and the baseball scenes were average..
amy adams wasted and justin timberlake was very weak

That's My Boy- 6/10: That's high praise for a movie that I thought wouldn't even deserve a 1. There were a ton of laugh out loud moments, if Sandler could just lose that stupid voice, this might have been a classic.

Moonrise Kingdom 8/10: I'd rate this right above Darjeeling Limited in the Wes Anderson catalog and really his movies can only be rated next to each other- they are all very similar but at the same time no other director makes movies like Wes Anderson... Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums- 10/10--- Life Aquatic 9/10--- Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox 8/10---- Darjeeling Limited 7/10----Bottle Rocket 6/10

Dark Shadows- 2/10: Austin Powers without jokes and in a setting that's not particularly funny either.

Cabin in the Woods 7/10: Kind of similar to Drag Me To Hell. Horror for people who aren't horror fans.

The Lorax 6/10: Good enough, not great like Pixar stuff, but it got terrible reviews which it didn't deserve.

The Dictator 4/10: I finished it, so there's that I guess... It's basically the same jokes as Borat but without the unscripted moments that made Borat so great.
