    saw Taken 2 last night, this is easily in my low 5 for the year. I think The Grey might've created unrealistic expectations in me that this was gonna be enjoyable, but there's a point where ridiculous writing and bad editing reach a point of no return.
    Also, I think seeing The Raid earlier this year messed up all action movies for me for a while as they all seem to pale in comparison (NB: I do not see a ton of these, maybe 4-5/year)

    The first Pee-Wee movie is unassailable. It is perfect cinema.

    Pee Wee's Big Adventure is the Gone With the Wind of the '80's, a sweeping epic which perfectly captured the times.

    As I've said before, Pee Wee's Big Adventure is hysterically funny. My youngest and I were considering it for viewing tonight. As it happened, she and I chose The Birdcage.

    Just got back from seeing Frankenweenie with my 11 year old. It's certainly interesting, but neither she nor I were blown away. Even she thought the ending was kind of a cop out.

    I gave my 11 year old nephew a choice between this and Hotel Transylvania, which he selected. I thought it was halfway decent, with a few chuckles and a little dig at the Twilight franchise.

    BUT somebody needs to explain to the producers that Quasimodo is not a monster in the same sense as Frankenstein and The Mummy. It's a minor point, but actually plays a large and illogical role in the plot line.

    I love the whole original Omen series. 2 was creepy great, with that poor boy struggling to understand his place as the spawn of satan. And 3 with Sam Neil is fucking awesome. 4 kind of turned to shit, what with the dog rape set to "Puppy Love" and all, but I still appreciate the whole bunch.

    stayed home and watched "the dictator" last night over 2 beers. crude, vulgar, trying too hard to be provocative, obscene... I liked it!
