    What movie did you recently watch?

    Ponette 3.5/5.0

    4 year old girl deals with her mother's death. Don't believe I've ever seen a film shot exclusively from the point of such young children. Director Jacques Doillon gets amazing performances from the youngsters, most especially from Victoire Thivisol in the title role.

    Super 3.0/5.0

    James Gunn has director credits with two quality B films, Slither and Tromeo & Juliet, the latter a classic of the genre. This completes the trifecta of schlub superheroes films after "Kickass" and "Defendor." Dunno why I didn't like this one as much as the other two as it's probably the most honest of the three and has a terrific supporting cast, Nathan Fillion, Liv Tyler, the little Canadian, among many.

    Nope, but it's streaming at Netflix, so that might change.

    KFP2 is also good!
    Blog is back. Get it while it still exists!

    Latest post from 11/13/18: 9 Amazing Facts About Lions that Will Shock - I'll admit, I kind of phoned this one. But the lion facts are 100% real and the Lion King images are 100% without permission.

    The Fighter

    It was good. Mark Wahlberg played the same character he almost always plays, but he's pretty good at it. Bale is pretty amazing and Melissa Leo was even better.
