    That's how I felt too, and I usually retain that title, because I like to give films a chance (Hell, I LOVE Eraserhead, and many people consider that movie to be weird for the sake of being weird).

    Adaptation - great movie, great idea, great script. Charlie Kaufman is THE man.

    The Raid:Redemption (AGAIN)

    Just as enjoyable. The crowd sucked this time around though. The shitty theater had the volume way down as well. Shame.

    NightFall - 8/10

    Synopsis: When a Hong Kong celebrity is found brutally murdered, his body floating in the middle of the ocean, hardheaded detective Lam is called in to take charge of the investigation. As Lam zeroes in on a killer from the past, the murder appears to be a straightforward case of revenge. But the more that Lam pursues his suspect, the deeper he falls into a web of lies. To find the truth, Lam must dig into a 20 year-old case for answers, the one link tying the suspect to the celebrity. But in doing so, Lam will uncover a dark secret so shocking; it will turn the investigation upside down. Who is the victim and who is the killer? Just as Lam believes he has everything figured out, he will discover that there’s a fine line between love and hate.

    A very tragic tale unfolds. Beautifully told and presented. If you're into foreign films, track this one down.

    The Change Up - 7/10

    Oh my fuck. I can't remember the last time I've laughed that hard. I don't get why the rating is so low for this movie. The acting is great and the laughs in here are incredible. Way funnier than Bridesmaids, which seemed to be the best comedy of the summer.

    Bruce Lee's daughter gave the raid a great review. I might have to see it now that I've gotten an unbiased review

    The Hunger Games 9/10

    I loved it! I just started reading the books and I thought they did a really good job at it.

    It's a site that collects data based on reviews by professional critics to see if a movie is considered "Rotten" or "Fresh". www.rottentomatoes.com

    Haywire - 2/5. Expected better from Soderbergh. Also, Gina Carano can't act.

    Chronicle - 4.5/5. Loved it!

    I haven't seen the film yet Ree, but you gotta let me know.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how much ass did Hulk kick?

    Shame (2011) - 5/5
    Michael Fassbender once again proves why he's one of the best actors working today. Intense performance!
