This is really the best blog ever.

July 2011 Movies watched | August 1, 2011

132)Mrs Brown (1997) – 8/10 – (7.5) – Most excellent performances by Judi Dench and Billy Connolly. Wonderful story.
133)The Ballad of Tam Lin (1970) – 3/10 – Boring, stupid, inane.
134) This Film Is Not Yet Rated (2006) – 10/10 – Excellent expose into the MPAA. Even if you’re already aware that they’re biased and unfair, this will open your eyes.
135) X-Men: First Class (2011) – 9/10 – (7.8) – Most excellent, loved the dynamic of the movie. Nice blend of comic canon with new characters and new twists. Shame it wasn’t done as a mini-series or tv show, had so much going on it would have benefitted from being 8-10 hours long.
136) Vanishing on 7th Street (2010) – 5/10 – Nothing special, most of the story went nowhere. Too many stupid actions/reactions on the parts of the characters.
137) Wild Target (2010) – 8/10 – (7.14) – Rupert Grint totally steals the show on this one, though everyone else is excellent. A silly, cute, clever RomCom. Bill Nighy as an assassin. C’mon, what’s not to love?
138) The Omega Man (1971) – 7/10 – (7.15) – Very fun 70s scifi movie. Uncle Chuck is da man, yo. Classic example of 70s post-apoc storytelling.
139) The Parallax View (1974) – 5/10 – Interesting, but seems like there should have been more to it. Just fell a little flat.
140) Rubber (2010) – 10/10 – (7.16) – A wonderfully ridiculous movie, and intentionally so. I’ve heard people complain that it didn’t make sense… and they knew it was a movie about a killer tire. o.O (Plus, in the opening sequence, one of the characters informs the audience that the movie is a homage to “No Reason”.)
141) My Name is Bruce (2007) – 8/10 – (7.17) – A good, silly movie poking fun at Bruce Campbell, horror movies, horror movie fans, Hollywood and life in general.
142) Dean Spanley – 10/10 – A wonderful, touching movie, a blend of fantasy and drama and comedy. A brilliant cast, fabulous dialogue – just all around excellent.
143) Superman II (1980) (RW) – 7/10 – The only good Superman movie. Even so, it’s a heavily flawed movie, but still is just fun. Plus, Terence Stamp.
144) Moonlighting (1982) – 4/10 – (7.21) – Interesting, but ultimately seems to go nowhere. Jeremy Iron is excellent, but mired in ambiguity, the story is disappointing.
145) Henry V (1989) – 10/10 – (7.22) – You just cannot go wrong with Derek Jacobi, Brian Blessed, Kenneth Branagh, Ian Holm and so many others in this amazing cast. Fantabulous!
146) Crazy Eights (2007) – 3/10 – Boooorrrrring.
147) Stake Land (2010) – 8/10 – (7.24) – A well done post-vampocalyptic tale of a vampire hunter and the young man he takes under his wing. A little predictable, but still enjoyable.
148) I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) – 7/10 – (7.25) – A cute, silly movie, based on a true story. I want to read the book, now.
149) Horsemen (2009) – 2/10 – (7.26) Lame. Felt like a movie where they started with a twist or two and then made up a story to plug the twists into.
150) Smokin’ Aces (2006) – 8/10 – (7.28) – Very fun, quirky, boom-boom, bang-bang movie with a bit more emotional depth than I expected. Lots of great characters, fun story, nice plot, a couple twists (though I guessed the biggest one from the start.)
151) Paul (2011) – 7/10 – (7.31) – Cute, silly and fun movie. If you’re a scifi movie geek, you’ll love it.

Best Movie – Henry V, hands down. On a totally different level, Rubber was completely awesome and everything it needed to be.

Worst Movie – Horsemen. Man, Dennis Quaid will act in anything these days.
