I cackled during the scene where she's peeing, and hears a noise.

The Maze Runner - Some major plot holes if you bother to look. I give it two Mehs up.

Guardians of the galaxy. Most hilarious, many of good lines worth repeating. Two out of three feet.

Ghost World - For the second time. Still very funny and eerily foreshadowing Thora and Scarlett's career trajectories. Two feet, six inches up

Movies I've watched recently:

Traffic
Heavy movie. Learned today while creating this post that it won four Oscars. Three stars.

Nil by Mouth
Anothery heavy movie. Come to think about it, this whole list is filled with heavy movies.

Lilya 4-Ever
Sex trafficking in Estonia. So bleak, I shudder to think what life was like for the people living there. Major downer. Do not drink and watch.

Requiem for a Dream
Ellen Burstyn, Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto, Marlon Wayans, all give powerful performances portraying the seductively corrosive effects of addiction. Excellent film.

Gone Baby Gone
It has been awhile since I've seen this one and I am foggy on the details. I'll take that as a sign I'm healing. It's another dark, tragic film.

I've seen (actually, I own a copy of) Traffic, Requiem, and Gone Baby Gone. I love them all.

Traffic: I can always hear, in my head, Catherine Zeta-Jones yelling "shoot him in the head! Shoot him in the head!"

Requiem: I recently watched this but I'm still a bit fuzzy on it, may watch it again this weekend.

Gone Baby Gone: I love Casey Affleck (and have never been a big fan of brother Ben, though I know he directed this movie and IS talented...as an actor he never wowed me. I think it was that whole Bennifer thing that turned me off...Anyway...) and Amy Ryan is one of my favorite underrated actresses. She was stellar in this movie. It's a fave.

Speaking of Amy Ryan and movies. There's a new movie out called Birdman, starring Michael Keaton. It's getting rave reviews and I really want to see it. Some of my favorite actors are in this one too: Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Naomi Watts, Merritt Wever (hilarious in the Nurse Jackie TV series.)

But I can't find where it's coming anywhere near me, like, ever.

It sounds a lot like that movie, Manbird

Watched "The One I Love" today, because it starred Mark Duplass from The League. Netflix recommended it for me, and I was very doubtful based on the description, but like I said... Mark Duplass.

Can't give more details without spoiling it, but suffice it to say there is definitely more to this film than the boring romantic dramedy it initially appears to be. The plot is not what you think. Very well done.

The Grand Budapest Hotel was very entertaining, I highly recommend it. But then I like movies with a fantastical flair to them. Some like this: Big Fish, Moonrise Kingdom, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, What Dreams May Come, etc. These are examples of movies I loved across a range of styles. Though I've noticed having listed them, that they are all love stories, wearing fantasy costumes and effects. Huh. Learned something about myself today.

The Machinist (skinny Christian Bale)--eerie, confusing, good
Out of the Furnace (normal Christian Bale)--not bad. Casey Affleck!
Sophie's Choice (re-watch)--goes without saying
What Maisie Knew--eh, OK I guess
Zodiac--good

Amanda and I watched Hugo last week. I didn't realize at the time that the kid is Ender. Then I caught the end of enders game on weds. Cool Kid. Great movies.

So tonight, Forrest Gump and Gladiator are on at the same time. Both are movies I am compelled to watch whenever I encounter them. Which to watch?
