TED - Man did I laugh. One comic book bit at the end was my favourite. I'm sure other people who see it will know what I mean.

LAWLESS
What could have been a paint-by-numbers moonshine racket flick was kicked up a few notches by stellar performances by Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce.  Unfortunately, (don't think it's spoilering) Gary Oldman isn't utilized well.

Don't let the Shia LaBeouf teen love story angle fool you - this movie is more often brutal.  

The 'based on a true story' side of things seemed awfully hard to believe, so without any research, I'm guessing it's 'real' in that the STORY and legend of these activities were indeed passed (and enhanced) along from generation to generation.

SANJURO - Paul found a little theater in Baltimore showing this amazing movie. We jumped at the opportunity. Beautiful.

CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER - I thought this was funny. It was a pretty normal two people getting divorced but still have feeling for each other kind of story. Not a genre changer but I think worth checking out if you get a chance.

COSMOPOLIS - not for the faint of heart!!! Half the audience had left by the
end and those who remained left complaining...but I had lots of twisted fun!

Cronenberg delivers again!

Wow different strokes. I H-A-T-E-D COSMOPOLIS.

Saw DREDD 3D - Great movie with actual 3D. Still left wondering why the 3D was needed at all.

Just saw Premium Rush.

My leg was shaking with an adrenaline rush by the end of the movie, just an awesome action movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt took a character that could have been unlikable on the page and made me root for him, and the villain was really well done. A desperate man with moments of real humanity that caused him to make reasonable mistakes and I bought it because of Michael Shannon's performance, going to be looking out for more of his work in the future.

Best thing I can say about it; I wanted to watch it again the instant it was over.

DREDD (not in 3D). Excellent. If it opens up in France in 3D, I may watch it again.

Resident Evil: Retribution.  I enjoyed the move very much. I am glad to see that there will be another.

I sure will see the next Resident Evil, but I wonder if I will like it. Looking back at the series, I enjoyed the first one, found the second one average, then enjoyed the third, and found the fourth one average. So ?

The Possession.

It was pretty good, but not great. One of its problems is that any film in this mini-genre faces inevitable comparisons to The Exorcist, the everest of such movies, and just as inevitably ends up as a pale imitation.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a good lead, flawed but suitably sympathetic and the all-important build-up is well paced and kept nicely low key. The resolution is fairly predictable and, despite some effective chills, a little pedestrian. 

Some weird continuity errors and flaws (what happened to the dentist?).

SINISTER - Strong first half but it all falls apart by the end. Very anti-climactic.
