Yeah, but I mean the whole VR concept and computer graphics look so ridiculous now. Or did they look ridiculous in '92 as well?

Need for Speed - 3/5 Perfectly fun diversion, and Imogen was hot as hell (except for her mullet).

I saw it in 1994 and it looked terrible then too.

You guys are probably right. It's just too long ago for me to recall.

I liked the concept, but knew it was Hollywoodized and wasn't realistic with the VR. I like the stuff that didn't include the VR more, like when he was using his brain power via telekinesis.

Guardians of the Galaxy - The most fun I had in a movie in a long time. It's not perfect but deserves the success it's been getting.

That was a horror movie in titled "Stitches " In this deliriously twisted slasher comedy, vile and foul-mouthed hired clown Stitches meets an untimely end thanks to a party prank gone horribly - and hilariously - awry. Years later, he returns from the grave, ready for revenge...

Michael Connelly's other famous character Harry Bosch is getting a series, so why not Mickey Haller? It's not like this movie will be getting a sequel, since it barely managed to double its budget at the box office. TV would be perfect for this.

Oh well. I grabbed a copy of the book, and it has four sequels, so at least I've got that to look forward to.
Lincoln Lawyer was the start of "no more rom coms" McConaughey and yeah, he nailed it. Just like he did before the rom com era.

"You have perfect nipple placement" has to be one of the oddest expressions I've ever heard someone utter in my life.

Ted- Though I'm not a huge fan of Seth McFarlane's pop-culture drunk postmodern pastiches ala Family Guy, I admit that whatever its flaws, I laughed all the way through Ted. Armed with an R-rating, McFarlane clearly relishes the chance to swear with wild abandon in this tale of a child who's magical wish brings his teddy bear to life, only to grow up with him as a stoner and slacker, as his long-suffering girlfriend pushes him to grow up. It's basically a Seth Rogan movie with a CG teddy bear, but I won't deny that in spite of its scattershot narrative (the actual plot machinations feel all-too perfunctory), I laughed consistently all the way through.

Guardians of the Galaxy- Overstuffed and overlong sugar-rush of a film is basically Marvel moving all of their superhero movie tropes into outer space, but that doesn't preclude it from being lots of fun, though the nonstop orgy of special effects at the end occasionally mistook excess for excitement, IMO. James Gunn's script is as anarchic as its ad-libbing hero, and the actors' immense chemistry and amusing timing means that many of the jokes are amusing and the film is loaded with wall-to-wall FX, which are fun, if occasionally overloaded. Pratt is a very engaging lead. Also James, you shoot a film digitally and include a cassette player as major plot point? Go to hell, man .

Dazed and Confused- What a difference a decade makes. First saw this on TV almost ten years ago during my own high school years. At the time, I found it a little bit nostalgic, a sort of look at what I was presumably supposed to going through during my own rigorous high school education. Now, quite apart from looking back on what I've missed, I noticed the aching streak of sad melancholia which runs through, a tale of existential emptiness and purgatorial suburban existence which though bound by its setting, is curiously forward-looking too. That's not to say that there isn't lots of humor and stoner jokes, but bubbling underneath is a much darker story, youth viewed with experience, not nostalgic, but melancholic and almost sad and existentially empty. Though there's joy in discovery, there's a darker underpinning of unrest and even sadism in the little small town setting. Committing a felony is a hell of a lot more exciting than graduating. Even the film grain now seems like a reminder of something soon-to-be-gone. Linklater's sitcom setting exists at the corner of Sartre and Camu's hell, the director's look back to the 70s defined the 90s in ways I couldn't even realize. A cast of future stars and a killer soundtrack too. Tuesday's gone, but it's what she's taken with her that you can only see in your rear-view mirror.

Noah - God chose Aronofsky to punish moviegoers for their sins. That's the only logical explanation for this abomination of apocalyptic proportions.
