Hell no it is not MY film of the year for 2013.

I hated Theodore so badly. He was so sensitive and a ball of emotions. He was basically a man child that hasn't learned to deal with his emotions properly over the years. There is one line in the movie that wrapped up how I felt. A friend of his at the office said "you are half man and half woman inside". I wanted to yell at the screen that he is all woman on the inside. He was a huge vagina in the worse of ways. I couldn't relate to him at all!!!

I understand the premise of the movie that with technology and social media we end up isolating ourselves and being locked into our own little worlds but I wanted to slap the **** out of Theodore for running away from reality and putting his life on hold to live out this fantasy with an AI.

The only bonus was the cinematography. I'm pretty sure everyone sitting in the theater with me was tired of hearing me groan loudly at the ridiculousness that I was watching on the screen.

Just saw Lone Survivor last night. **** me. Intense, brutal, and heart-wrenching. I didn't know it was actually a true story until right before the credits. That got to me. I've always been kind of undecided about the whole drone strikes in Pakistan thing, but now I'm all for them. I've got a buddy who's in the Coast Guard in Iraq (or at least he was last time I talked to him), and if you replace "Coast Guard" with "Army" and "Iraq" with "Afghanistan" and ask if I'd be willing to violate Pakistan's sovereignty to keep him from going through that, then let the bombs drop.

Can't see the pic. Don't be lazy. Put the title of the movie above the pics you attempt to post.

Also I see why it didn't work. Don't try to hotlink pics from imdb.

Calm down dude, she wasn't being lazy lol. She probably just didn't think of putting the title.



The Wolf of Wall Street

I feel like I should be on Quaaludes right now as I type this up. I feel like everybody should be on Quaaludes while they read this. How about just…Quaaludes.

Writing this a couple days after Leo won the Golden Globe for Best Actor, I’m starting to realize that this may be the year that Leo finally wins and Oscar, and he would totally deserve it. Leo stars in this absolutely insane film about rich people in the stock market and what kind of luxuries go with that. To my surprise, the theater in which I saw this film was still packed to the brim which was great but also horrible because I always seem to be a magnet for people like to talk during the entire duration of a film. The fact that this was three hours long only impressed me more on how awful people are. Even with those distractions, I still enjoyed the film.

Scorcese has always been a interesting director to me. Sometimes he’ll have a film that is a well balanced machine of great acting, wonderful camera work, and interesting story. Goodfellas, The Departed, Hugo, and Shutter Island come to mind. Then there is the Scorsese that seems to miss on the subject matter but still gets great performances out of his actors. Casino and Gangs of New York featured powerhouse performances but just fell a little short story wise although were entirely entertaining. The Wolf of Wall Street will be joining those two films. It’s a film filled with great acting and fun but really didn’t have any substance to carry in into my top film of the year.

Leo was amazing. I hope he does more comedies because the man is hilarious. The timing he developed with Jonah Hill was amazing to watch and like I said in the beginning I expect him to take home his first Oscar. In a year FILLED to the brim with amazing male performances, I hope Leo takes home the statue. He earned it. Like everything he does, he went full on crazy in this film. The scenes with him on drugs, which is like every scene, were some of the funniest scenes of the year and it was because of the brilliant way Leo controls his face. He’s always been a fantastic actor but this just rounds out his resume as being a jack of all trades. Jonah Hill cemented the fact that he can act with his supporting roll as Donny, Belfort’s Vice President.

The film was just a non stop freight train of debauchery that had many people laughing, gasping, and shutting their eyes while also being memorized with the circus unfolding at every angle. The only thing I could say was that the story just didn’t hold up. I honestly didn’t find myself engaged in fact that these people could possibly do serious jail time. I didn’t care if they were caught or died or anything. It was like dumping sprinkles, sugar, chocolates, and ice cream on a steak. The fun and craziness of the film completely overpowered any substance underneath. That being said, it’s one of the few films that adheres to that structure that I still found very good and worth the price of admission, if you can handle it that is.

****, the ludes are kicking in.

3.5/5

Haha, supporting roll.

I'll have to see it to believe it. I understand his very specific charm but I'm still pretty confused about why Jonah Hill is suddenly on the A list.

Motherf*cker. I didn't even notice that. I'm changing it on my website but not on here.

Oh and I wouldn't say he's on the A-list but he's a very good character actor. The ROLE he plays in this is a little different than the one he usually plays.

You should check out his other serious roles like in that one baseball movie. He deserves to BE on the A-list.

I was just using your innocent typo to make a lame Jonah Hill-fat joke. I do like the guy as an actor but man, talk about being in the right place at the right time.

I've seen a bunch of his films but I'm not sure which one you're talking about. I'll check it out.
