I've actually felt like watching movies the last couple of weeks, so I've been doing some catching up. I am using the 10 point system here and if
something scores a 7.5 or higher I feel it would be worth spending the money to rent. Anything under that you should wait for it to come out on
Flight - 8 - Awesome movie! Denzel Washington is just an outstanding actor and I loved the role John Goodman played!
The Paperboy - 7.5 - A bit on the twisted side.... okay a whole lot on the twisted side. Some things were just completely unexpected and that element
of surprise elevated the score. At first, I was a bit put off because I'm not a Zac Efron fan but Cusack, McConaughey & Kidman don't disappoint.
Argo - 7.5 - It was well put together and fine acting all around.
Beasts of the Southern Wild - 7 - Every now and then a film will come along that disturbs me and this one definately yanked my chain. Billed as a
drama/fantasy it is sad and depressing but I didn't want to stop watching. Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest person EVER to receive a Best Actress
Oscar nomination and she definately deserved to be there!
Life of Pi - 7 - I actually enjoyed this. Who thought I would fall for a tiger?Lol And a fake one at that!
Django Unchained - 6.5 - The language was a bit too much for me. Sometimes less is more. Other than that it kept my attention.
Lincoln - 6.5 - To be honest.... it's a tad boring. Yes, it's a historical film but it just wasn't all that. And I don't know if it was just me, but
everytime Daniel Day-Lewis opened his mouth all I could hear was Darell Hammond (SNL) impersonating Sean Connery on the skit 'Celebrity Jeopardy' -
"I'll take famous titties (titles) for 4 hundred"!
Odd Life Of Timothy Green - 6 - Predictable.
Les Miserables - Turned it off within two minutes when I realized it was a musical. Yuck.
The Help - 8 - Really good movie but it's a chick flick!
The Descendants - 7 - I ended up liking this one too.
War Horse - 6.5 - Another predictable movie and some of the acting is a bit cheesy but it held my attention.
The Adjustment Bureau - 6.5 - I like Matt Damon what can I say?
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - 6 - This didn't do a whole lot for me. I watched it because I like Tom Hanks & Sandra Bullock but they both had
