    End of watch. Really liked this. Sad ending though.

    Broken city. Not very good.

    for me it just added that subtle dash of migraine which really does intensify the whole movie experience...

    Saw it again in 2D as I had to stumble off the earlier one. Solid film but not spectacular imo.

    What I've watched recently:

    12 Monkeys
    Memento
    Oldboy
    Collateral
    Spartan

    out of which the last one wasn't particularly great, but at least highly accurate regarding all the little details.

    Glad you enjoyed it. Lloyd was an exceptional physical comedian with nearly perfect timing.

    If Ides of March is any indication of how real politics work, I am really sad about all the interns

    Wasted what felt like 4 hours of my life on Parker. With a cast that features actors from The Shield and The Wire, it's pretty disappointing. The movie can basically be summed up in five words: punches, kicks, Jennifer Lopez's ass.

    I think I like Star Trek too much to rate Into Darkness very highly. Then again, I know my order from I to XII.

    Thinking about watching either Rashamon or World on a Wire tonight...
