Lincoln Daniel Day-Lewis makes this movie, though there are some excellent supporting roles from David Strathairn, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones. I didn't know the film was centered on the 13th amendment until it began. I suppose that's better than a cut and paste take on Lincoln's life.

Zero Dark Thirty Enjoyed this one as well and there were excellent performances throughout. Still, I wish they would have trimmed it down by a half hour or so. I think they could have got the point across in less time. Loved the final act, and closing scene.

Cheeseburger movie that did the job and much better than I thought it would be. William H. Macy is brilliant but then he generally is in most things he does.

Garbage. Tom Hardy how could you be in this film. Vacuous and empty headed crap.

The last movie i saw in the theater was Oz the Great and Powerful. It was pretty good. Was better than i expected from a Disney film. And then i came home and watched Election. Was really funny. It was really predictable tho. Oh and the past three days my son has watched "Hop" over and over again. Yay...

Enjoyed it even though I can't stand Daniel Craig.

Spring Breakers
Stunning, and I mean that in a neutral way, though I did like the film. But yeah, this film is wild, and not in the obvious way. This movie is to girls-gone-wild/party films what Drive was to action/car-chase films. Needless to say, tons of people in my theater hated it. Guess they've never seen an art-house film before or don't know who Harmony Korine is. The plot isn't that good or important, what stands out here is the imagery, the cinematography, and trying to decipher exactly what Harmony Korine was trying to say about today's youth. One scene in particular was absolutely jaw-dropping, and it involved a Britney Spears song.

Anyways, not a film for the young ones, probably the most frequent nudity I've ever seen in a film. It earns its R/18A rating well.

8/10, but that's subject to change. Still don't know what to think.

My local movie critic tore Spring Breakers apart, but I have to agree with you, there's a lot more going on here than meets the eye. I think one of the reasons so many people dislike it comes from the fact that it shucks conventional genre tropes, where the spring breakers will pay for seeking the forbidden fruit that Alien offers them, and instead of the typical "innocent lost" it's more like existential emptiness found, and I think that bothers people.

I'd definitely recommend checking this out.

Great film that shows how fucked up the illegal drug trade is and how powerless the US is to stop it. Not much has changed since the movie came out either. I'm kinda disappointed that it had a somewhat happy ending though, since if each of the 3 storylines took place in reality you could expect a terrible ending.

I just saw The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. You have to be willing to watch a movie starring a bunch of old farts...

I liked this ^ one too.

Watched Safe House today starring Denzel Washington. Great CIA conspiracy flick.
