Our b-movie of the night: The Manhattan Project (1986).

It was unbelievably sh*tty. Forget about suspension of disbelief... my wife and I riffed the sh*t out of this box office bomb for the entirety of the flick.

The protagonist was an unlikeable sociopath. The storyline was incomprehensibly unrealistic. The weeks and weeks spent handling weapons grade plutonium with little more than dishwashing gloves would have put tumors on his tumors. The nuclear weapons research lab was protected by a single inept guard. And the film resolves with a mega-happy ending where theft of government property, transportation of stolen goods, trespassing in a top secret facility, espionage, and the construction of a nuclear weapon really doesn't have any consequences.

And the 80s happened all over this movie.

File under: MOVIES THAT CAN'T EXIST AFTER THE INTERNET.

Winter's Bone - third viewing. Jesus, after Mystic River yesterday and now this today, I just want to jump off of the Coronado Bridge. This movie takes place in a environment that is so bleak and depressed it almost seems like an alternate universe.

I'd read the novel prior to first seeing it and it's one of those films that not only 100% captures the vibe and story of the book, but improves upon it (see No Country for Old Men).

Man, Jennifer Lawrence really announced herself as an incredible actress with this flick. It's hard to believe she didn't win both the Oscar and Golden Globe. I haven't seen Black Swan so I can't comment on Portman's wins.

And John Hawkes just seethes with absolute danger in every one of his scenes. Dude is one of the best working today who specializes in off-beat characters. Talk about versatility. Watch this and then The Sessions right after and you'll find it impossible to believe it's the same actor.

5 stars all the way.

Spoiler for Spoilers:
The scene where the sheriff pulls over Teardrop and Ree is the very definition of suspense.

Best lines:

Teardrop: Did you hit her too?
Thug: What if I did?
Teardrop: Say yes and find out.

Younger brother: You gonna leave us?
Ree: I'd be lost without the weight of you two on my back.

Great movie even though it is a bit campy.

I feel like You're Next is the modern day remake of it. Same vibe.

Ex Machina

Absolutely blew me away. When the ending was going down, I was a little worried that they were going to fumble it, but after the part with Caleb it quickly became one of my favourite endings, period. Really well cast as well, they put the one dimensional Domhnall Gleeson right into his dimension and Oscar Isaac is fantastic as usual (I see a bright future in acting for him).

I had really high expectations and this definitely lives up to the hype.

Yup. Fantastic movie. I thought Gleeson was really good in Frank too.
