LOVE this movie, about a young NYC couple (Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston) who see refuge from failed careers in a commune. Funny!

THE INBETWEENERS

I'm not the demographic for this British TV show, but I love it. Funny!

What has happened to my queue? Love Potion No 9, Chances Are, Here, Sophie's Choice? Robert Downey Jr. and Sandra Bullock should have made a movie together by now, Ben Foster isn't always that interesting, and Meryl Streep is so captivating: love her.

 
 
French spy thriller dramatizing the events that lead up to the fall of the Soviet Union. HIstorically accurate? Perhaps not. Entertaining? absolutely.
 
 
Long, violent, flawed, yet engaging true life action drama starring Gerard Butler,  Michelle Monaghan, and Michael Shannon. What is up with that horrible accent, Gerard? I forgive you...

NORWEGIAN WOOD

07/06/2012

 
French / Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung (The Scent of Green Papaya) adapts Haruki Murakami's novel about love, sex, loss, and insanity, set in 1960s Japan. Long, but beautiful cinematic romantic drama.

GOON

Surprisingly decent hockey movie with Seann William Scott, Allison Pill and Liev Schreiber that is almost ruined by the presence of Jay Baruchel, who belongs with Jonah Hill in the "crappy actors that made it big" category.
