Harold and Maude -*** One of my girlfriends favorites. Amusing and quirky, but it seems more like someones idea of trying to make a quirky and amusing movie rather than a real story.
A Clockwork Orange- **** Seen it often. Got my girlfriend into it. Classic dystopian movie.
Blade Runner- **** Never saw it before. One of the few movies I've seen that lived up to what I'd heard about it.
The Reader - *** Good film, but better in the early romance scenes. Kind of looses focus as it goes on.
Revolutionary Road- ** I think this film wanted me to sympathize with the plight of idealistic young people trapped in suburbia, but in reality these people were talentless ego-maniacs living in a fantasy world.
Star Trek- *** I kinda badmouthed the film here, but I think it is a good, well made film with several major flaws.
The Wrestler- **** Best film I've seen in a long time. Not just for people who know wrestling. A haunting story of past glory gone by.
Full Metal Jacket- ***1/2 A classic that I love. My girlfriend often finds Kubrik too cold of a filmmaker and thought this film was a good example of that compared to say Coppola's Apocalypse Now.
The House Bunny- *** Look at my avatar. If that isn't enough throw in Anna Faris, Emma Stone, and a pretty cute script.
Zack and Miri Make A Porno- **1/2 Not one of his better films. Funny in parts, but really just another hot girl and loser guy who don't realize they're in love film.
Tropic Thunder- *** Good, but not hysterical. Downey is genius.
Slumdog Millionaire- ***1/2 Gritty, but modern Indian film with a smart script and engaging characters. The love story was a little too oldschool but that can be forgiven.
Bull Durham- ***1/2 Hadn't seen it in ages. Lot better than I remember.
Red Show Diaries- **1/2 Good for nostalgic laughs, but kinda failed to get my girlfriend or I steamed up.
Pi- *** Interesting indie film from Aronofsky. very intelligent script. Times a little too dependent on non-sequitur visuals.
Raging Bull- **** Hadn't seen it in ages. As good as I remember.
