Too many Thums Up to count.

I guess I'm a pretty shitty movie reviewer.

In the past couple'a months, I've seen these movies. I forgot to mention them.

I'd give thums up to all of them.

Yep; all.

There's a couple of shitty ones here. In fact, the worst of the bunch gets a bare, naked, shriveled Thum Up. Righteous Kill. The worst movie on this list stars Pacino and De Niro.

Fucking wops.

Anyway, it barely gets a shriveled Thum up for Carla Gugino.

Va va va voom.


I can't distinguish what's good from what I like. This a problem. Appaloosa is not great, but damn if I didn't like it. Twilight has some of the worst acting and direction I've ever seen in a feature -- but I liked it anyway. Il y a longtemps que je t'aime is everything you've read, and then some. Ms. Scott Thomas really is as good as they say.

Fuck me; what do I know about movies?

Well, I see a lot of them. . . .

I do know that Nights in Rodanthe is just execrable. But a Thums Up for Dianne Lane. Va va va voom.


Oh, yeah: Role Models.

It's predictable, cookie-cutter modern young guy comedy.

It's freakin' hilarious. And honest. DId I say funny? And authentic. Did I mention laugh-out-loud, sodie-through-the-nose-on-occasion?
Well, the audience reacted this way both times I saw it.
