Les Misérables

We watched an amazing movie today. At first we thought it was a version of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables, but it turned out to be much more. It wasn’t the telling of Victor Hugo’s story as much as it was a movie inspired by it. I’ve heard it summarized as a re-telling of Les Misérables… Continue reading Les Misérables

Surfer, Dude

I’ve seen worse movies. That’s about as good of a recommendation as I can give for Surfer, Dude. Overall the movie felt like I was hanging out with Matthew McConaughey and co-stars Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson; which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There are worse guys you can hang out with. But it’s not… Continue reading Surfer, Dude

Tropic Thunder

We watched Tropic Thunder tonight. It wasn’t something I’ve been dying to watch, but all the clips I’d seen of Robert Downey Jr. sort of bumped it up a bit in my estimations. I’m not a Ben Stiller fan. Sorry, folks. He does nothing for me. So I’m not likely to be drawn to a… Continue reading Tropic Thunder


We watched the movie Alive tonight. It’s the story of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 that crashed in the Andes mountains on October 13, 1972. The flight carried 45 people, but by the time they were rescued 72 days later, there were only 16 survivors. Some people might remember the story because the people who… Continue reading Alive

Sense & Sensibility

We watched Sense & Sensibility tonight. Victoria’s been dying for me to watch it with her since she got it on DVD. Being a guy, I have a genetic predisposition to run when someone mentions something that, let’s face it, is mostly considered to be a story that primarily women get all wobbly over. Not… Continue reading Sense & Sensibility

30 Days of Night

I finally got to see the movie 30 Days of Night last night. I thought it was a cool movie, but I was a little underwhelmed. I’m not sure what I expected from a movie that was heralded as “a bold re-imagining” of the vampire myth, but this movie fell short somehow. Like I said,… Continue reading 30 Days of Night

Iron Man

Victoria and I went to see the new Iron Man movie today. I really liked it. But I figured as soon as I heard that Robert Downey Jr. was playing the lead that I’d like the movie. Who else could really nail Tony Stark? Yes, folks. I’m an old comic book geek. I read a… Continue reading Iron Man

No Country for Old Men

We watched No Country for Old Men tonight. I have to admit to being more than a little confused by the movie. I was right with it until the crazy guy killed the guy who took the money. After that, the movie made no damned sense to me at all. I admit. I didn’t get… Continue reading No Country for Old Men
