I posted what I thought in the Gran Torino thread. I laughed at a lot of the stuff Eastwood said, but otherwise, meh.

Also watched Get Shorty, I always forget how much I like this movie. Dennis Farina is hilarious throughout, really great comedy


Get Shorty is sweet, makes me sad that Be Cool was so horrible.


The only good part of Be Cool was Andre 3000.

Went to Funny People last night, it was definitely worth seeing. I watched all of the Randy videos so I kind of had to see the movie....

Unofficial poll. I'm on vacation next week, and going to a movie. Do I see the Collector, or GI Joe?

watched 'Double Indemnity' (1942), anyone who loves good film-noir should definately check this out, I may be a little biased because I got a thing for Barbara Stanwyck movies, but they certainly don't make em' like this anymore, one of the best movies I've ever seen!

Thats pretty much the sentiment we had with funny people...that who awkward san fran sequence gets unbearable.

The rogan, hill, schwartzman banter is priceless. the should have just made the movie about them, and ended the adam sandler story halfway through or something.

i think watching all of those randy videos makes his part in the movie a real let down....in retrospect i wish i would have waited until after the movie to watch those internet clips....i guess they're going to make a movie just w/him...that will be a bit much, but if you haven't you should definitely check out his website and watch those shorts..

i haven't seen funny people, but if it's like any other apetow movie it probably starts really strong...labors towards the end...the conclusion is pretty implausible...and then the movie turns out to be about 20 minutes too long.

not that i don't love his movies, but he's got some issues with his pacing

It borders 30-40 minutes too long/off topic....so i guess it falls right in line with your sentiments on apetow.

Really enjoyed Gone Baby, Gone.

Who knew Ben Affleck could direct?

I have been catching up on movies that I missed when I had no life during school. So far I have watched:

Juno - Good
Baby Mama - Bad
Forgetting Sarah Marshall - OK
Knocked Up - Good
Definitely, Maybe - Good
Gran Turino - Good

As for new summer movies, I have seen
Harry Potter - Pretty good
Transformers 2 - Meh, way too long
The Proposal - Pretty funny for a chick flick
Orphan - TERRIBLE

And I think his brother is a terrific actor. That movie was so intense.
