    An older TV movie with Britney Murphy, from the '90s or so. She was so adorable and good on screen, it really is making me sad to watch it.

    The Boy Next Door ... I watched it on a live streaming site and I swear it looked like Jerry Seinfeld recorded it in a movie theater (I watch tons of movies on this streaming site and while it's obvious the newer movies that are still in theaters or ones that haven't come out on DVD yet are mostly those movies sent to voters for Grammys and Oscars and such, this is the first time I've seen a movie that looked illegally taped from an actual movie theater). The movie was predictable and Jennifer Lopez's character was so very weak. The guy who played Noah (the boy next door) was good at playing a psycho stalker, but was good eye candy. I would wait for this to come out on cable or something; wouldn't recommend paying to see this at all.

    American Sniper. I was surprised at the damage Clint reveals in Chris Kyle. I thought it was going to be a total propaganda piece so I didn't expect to see the hint of madness in the main character. If you're inclined to chest thumping and puffery about being an American, you can (and probably will without even knowing you're doing it) ignore the darker edges, but they are there. Clint, plays to his audience, so he doesn't hit you over the head with the harder questions, but he makes Chris Kyle more interesting than I thought he'd be.

    And, as usual, I got a little bored watching it. But not a total waste.

    Birdman, was really disappointed
    Boyhood, I didn't even finish this one. I found it boring and don't get the hype.

    Ask the Dust. Love story with Colin Farrell and Salma Hayek. Directed by the Robert Towne. Farrell plays a young author trying to get established in Los Angeles, and he starts a relationship with Hayek that starts in a very contentious way. They start off insulting each other, but he grows to appreciate and fall in love with her. Very poignant movie. Did not get great reviews, but I have a weakness for storylines where guys fall in love with Latinas. Donald Sutherland and Idina Menzel are in it, too.

    i saw that years ago. It's not bad but it's kind of a mediocre adaptation of Fante's novel, despite the great cast. It was ok for a night at home flipping channels but I don't think it's really worth going out of your way to see it.

    Home Sweet Hell .... Katherine Heigl stars. Plot is that a wimpy husband has an affair with one of his employees, apparently gets her pregnant and then his "perfect" wife from hell finds out and decides to take care of the situation. Heigl looks soooooo rough throughout the whole movie .... huge bags under her eyes, limpy hair, etc. She's actually pretty funny in certain parts of this movie, especially when she's playing the psycho wife part. It did drag on in parts and there were side plots that didn't really mesh or help with the main story. Heigl haters will enjoy the ending. Another one that was okay, but I'd wait for it to come out on cable or rent it really cheap.

    Yeah, I meant to reply last night (GR server problems), that I shouldn't really call this a recommendation. It's just one of those movies that affect a particular person personally, even if it's not that good.

    got around to seeing The Wolf of Wall Street

    not nearly as great as all the hype had built it up to be.

    you do feel inspired and like you'd wanna work for Jordan Belfort. The way he was able to get those guys energized every day.

    Cecil B. Demented. I love John Waters but held off on it because of Melanie Griffith, she was actually pretty good but it still wasn't his best. After reading his books it was just like one long rant against cinema that I'd already heard.

    The Voices .... the only people I recognized were Ryan Reynolds and Anna Kendrick. I can't believe Ryan would sully his career with this flop. Plot is this small town guy starts working for this bathroom tub manufacturer and he has a crush on a girl that works in accounting. There's another girl in accounting that has a crush on Ryan's character but he's clueless about it until later in the movie. We find out that Ryan's not all there (they never actually say what is wrong with him, but I'm guessing severely schizophrenic) when he visits his court ordered psychotherapist and she finds out that he's not taking his meds. She repeatedly reminds him that he must take his meds everyday or she'll have to report him as non-compliant.

    The seemingly highlight of his day is when he gets home from work to his tiny, horrid apartment when he gets to talk to his pets ... and they talk back. His dog is ever optimistic and encouraging to Ryan, repeatedly telling him he's a good person. His cat, however, is pretty evil and not only berates him, but encourages him to behave badly. He winds up killing the girl he has a crush on (you can tell this in the trailer, so I'm not really spoiling here), and tries to justify that it was an accident (it wasn't). He cuts her up and puts her in dozens and dozens of smallish plastic food containers. Her head is put in the fridge (again, this is in the trailer) and he talks to her often, sometimes even taking her out and putting her on the counter or table to have conversations with her ... she's always upbeat to him while at the same time begging for a "friend" in the fridge. Throughout the movie, you're seeing Ryan's apartment through his unmedicated eyes and it looks nice and tidy, the containers of flesh are gone, the girl's head is perfectly made up and her hair is done. One day, one of the voices (I can't remember which one) convinces him to take his meds .... and he's in a stupor and finally sees the horror that is his apartment, his pets won't answer him, the girl's head is nasty and decomposing (and she won't talk to him either), there's piles and piles of containers with rotting flesh laying around, there's blood everywhere, and he just generally has a horrible day. He flushes the rest of the medication down the sink and everything goes back to normal. Then he becomes friends with the accounting girl that has a crush on him .....

    Rereading what I just wrote, it sounds like a movie with potential. It's so not. It was one of the stupidest and weirdest movies I've ever seen. I'm guessing it was supposed to be a dark comedy .... there was really nothing funny about this movie, unless you have a twisted sense of humor, then you'd maybe chuckle at the evil cat once or twice. I still can't believe Ryan or Anna did this movie, unless it DID have potential and was killed by a bad director or editor. Ryan was awkward through the entire movie, but maybe that was his spin on his character's personality ... either way, he was just so awkward. You don't want to root for any of the characters and none of them really stand out. Don't waste your money.

    Birdman

    Not what I expected from the previews. Absolutely brilliant performances but by the end it started dragging a bit and I had some issues with what was going on. Still, overall I liked it.
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    Has anyone seen the trailer for the Poltergeist re-do? The original one started my intense fear of clowns (I've had so many nightmares about that damned clown), but it generally wasn't too scary to watch. I can't watch horror movies because they scare the ever loving shit out of me. This new one looks MUCH scarier and there were parts that reminded me of the unedited Exorcist (I watched it with my husband; I didn't think it was going to be that scary) and the trailer has a big part with the new, much much much scarier clown in it. Not even going to bother to see it. I know I'll be up for weeks.

    Saw foxcatcher, had no idea about the story and was reluctant as I am so not into wrestling but surprisingly I ended up liking it.

    I also watched pride and Prejudice, I am so much in traffic lately, I started listening to audiobooks, I loved it and had to see the movie, which I loved as well. I always thought Collin Firth was Mr Darcy, but that most be because of Bridget Jones.
