42 - 4/5 a little melodramatic in the first half but a good movie
The Sessions - 3.5/5 Helen Hunt nice and naked. A good movie with humor but uncomfortable to watch at times due to his disability
Lockdown - 2/5 at least Maggie grace was playing an age appropriate victim thsi time instead of 17 like in the Taken series
Lay The favorite - 2/5 not a great movie made from a great book

Rebecca Hall had an excellent body in that movie. But yeah, not a very good movie, at all.

Nobody Else But You (Poupoupidou) - 3.5/5

A French author of pulp crime novels travels to a small town on the French-Swiss border to hear the reading of his uncle's will. While there the body of a local celebrity is found by the police and declared a suicide. Looking for ideas to use for his next novel he investigates the death and starts to doubt that it was a suicide. Nice little modern noir with touches of the Coen brothers starts off great but loses steam in the second half.

Parkland - (running time 93 minutes) I am a Kennedy assassination buff and enjoyed what little was presented. Wished it had run another 20-30 minutes.

The Frozen Ground - a by the numbers formulaic serial killer movie based on real life serial killer Richard Henson. A surprisingly solid performance by Nick Cage, and a solid as usual performance by John Cusack as Henson

I suppose she's the favorite you want to lay then .

This Means War- A true by-committee piece of filmmaking without an original frame in it, a waste of three talented stars. Here's some romance, here's some Spielberg domestic drama, he's some action from a 90's Bond movie shot by James Cameron's old cinematographer, here's the audience falling asleep. Technically impressive, but soulless as a robot. Forgettable at best.

Patriot Games- Fairly classy Tom Clancy adaptation with cool action sequences and nice sense of place. Some good set pieces and cool hardware, though what was cutting edge in 1992 looks fairly archaic now. Good performances, though the cartoonish villains are cliched as hell, nice FX and action sequences, a studio-imposed ending is really a bit much. As far as Hollywood action thrillers go, pretty good.

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence- An utterly fascinating blend of Spielberg and Kubrick, two filmmakers with diametrically opposed aesthetics and worldviews. Visually stunning, uneven, and frequently brilliant, and always interesting look at a peculiar collaboration.

Oliver and Company- Classic Disney flick, produced during a transitional period, apparently used quite a bit of then-revolutionary CG. Cute characters, great musical numbers, lots of fun.

Wake In Fright (1971) - 4.5/5

Incredible Aussie flick, directed by Ted Kotcheff, about a small-town schoolteacher who stops off in the town of 'Yabba for a night before heading to Sydney to catch a flight. Except the local folk, and their friendly, beer-guzzling ways, keep him entrenched there for much longer. There's this great sinister undercurrent running throughout, constantly causing you to think something insane is about to happen. It's a fantastic study of characters, excess, depravity, and isolation.

Ugetsu - 5/5

Kenji Mizoguchi's masterpiece of Japanese cinema is a supernatural tale about two men during wartime who are led astray by greed and ambition. In their persuits they abandon their wives causing trajedy to befall on them and their families. Top notch acting, direction, camera work and just about everything makes this one of the greatest films ever made.
