Toothy was excellent as the cop though I kind of wanted to punch him too for being such a sociopathic weirdo as well.
    I was completely horrified by his actions but at the same time I kept putting myself in his shoes and it was torture to think of my kid missing and me not being able to do anything about it. I can't say his actions are excused, he was a monster but on some level I understood and supported them. I hate to pull the parent card on this but maybe that's what it was. Don't know how I would have felt if I saw that film before becoming a parent.
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    on a primitive, instinctive and brutal level, yes, for sure.
    of course i understand why he did it. and hugh jackman's performance was able to transmit all these contradictions in a credible way. but i don't support them and i doubt it has anything to do with being a parent because so far people's opinions (that i've asked) have been pretty split, and not between parents vs. non-parents.

    American Sniper. It's a good shoot em up Murica kinda film, but not Oscar material imo. Perhaps it's because I know too much about the guy it's about, I watched it kinda jaded.

    American Sniper. Eh.
    Oh, I'm so disappointed you didn't like American Sniper ... but I don't know any more about Chris Kyle than what the movie portrayed, so I may be at a loss. I didn't know he was already dead, but when his wife sloooooowly shut the door when he was meeting that other PTSDer, I just started bawling because they didn't even have to tell me what happened. It was obvious.

    I also am a HUGE Pitch Perfect fan. Another movie I could watch on an endless loop. Who knew Anna Kendrick could sing so well? And Anna Camp (the bitchy head blonde one; also played the same type of role in True Blood) was married when she started PP, but started an affair with Skylar Astin during filming. From what I've read, they're still together and she got a divorce ... Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out in a few months, I think. My son (10yo) and I could watch this movie all day.

    My whole family loves Pitch Perfect. If someone starts it, we all end up sitting down.

    I didn't get to Birdman this weekend, but I did see Cake. Watchable tearjearker. Jennifer does a fine job but maybe I spend too much time here reading and talking about her because I never forget it's Jennifer Aniston.

    I'm watching From DuskTill Dawn. It's been awhile so I'd forgotten how awesome George Clooney is. His best role in my opinion. Every on is great in this.
    *edit* I forgot Danny Trejo was in it.

    Noah. What a horrible movie. Russell Crowe's monotone voice made me crazy.

    "Tell No One" - I watched this on NetFlix last night and really liked it. It's like the European version of "Gone Girl". It has Francois Cluzet, Marie-Jose Croze, and Kristin Scott Thomas. Cluzet plays a pediatrician who is attacked one night when he is out with his wife. His wife is killed, and he is initially suspected of the murder because of the strange circumstances surrounding the attack. Eight years later, two additional bodies are found at the scene, and now the police are focusing on him again as the possible murderer of all three. This films has all kinds of crazy twists and turns in the plot. Pretty wild. It totally took me by surprise because I had found the movie accidentally. I went to IMDB to see what people thought about it, and it was very entertaining to see people arguing back and forth over perceived plot holes.

    The main reason I watched it is because I recognized the name Francois Cluzet from some movie I really liked. For some reason, I thought he had directed "The Vanishing". But that was George Sluizer.

    Anyway, Cluzet was actually one of the stars of "Olivier, Olivier" - which is a really haunting film about a kid who disappears.
