Movies i Saw this Week

Karate Kid
action/drama PG
i have seen before, but not in YEARS. i stil loved it. 4.5 stars. it's still a great movie.
The others were new to me, although not all new....

SherryBaby- drama R
i missed part of it, but it was good. Maggie G is a great actor. 4 stars from what i saw.

Child's Play- horror R
i had never seen this. It was entertaining. I'm glad i finally saw it.
Chucky is a freaky little doll. i may have to see some of the sequels. 3 stars?

Edmond- psychological thriller? R
William H Macy is an amazing actor. This film was kind of disturbing. It made me very uncomfortable, but i feel like that was part of what made it good. 4 stars. maybe 4.5.

Down In the Valley- drama? R
Another great actor, Edward Norton was in this. It also had Rory Culkin and another familiar actor... plus the main girl.. I thought it was good, but Edward Norton's character was not as strong as say, his characters in Fight Club, Primal Fear or American History X. I'd give it a 3.5 star rating. It was definately good, but not unforgetable.

and last, Francis Ford Coppella's
Rumble Fish- film noir? R
staring Matt Dillon, in his youth. This easily gets the full 5 star rating. Yes, i would have to say this was a brilliant, amazing film. Very artistic, beautiful, perfect. Yes, it was made a long time ago, but its totally a must see if you haven't yet.

cool. they're both a little disturbing, but like i said, i think it neeed to be disturbing.
i dont know if you are queesy about violence, but if you can stomach it, American Psycho is a great disturbing but amazing film, which i highly recommend as well.

i think you need to post more entries like this - where you take somthing you've read or seen and critique it -

saves the rest of us from having to watch the movies ourselves - you havn't inspired me to watch any more movies than i already do - but perhaps to pay attention a little bit more and put something like this in my journal.

i'm so stealing your really great idea.

*sticks tongue out back*
thanks. steal away. out of the movies on this list, the only one i think is a "must see" is rumble fish. although i was really glad to see karate kid again. it inspired me to start working out again to get in better shape... not to fight, but for protection if someone attacks me so i can fight back if i need to.

anyway, peace my friend... and i agree that this method of listing and reviewing the movies i put in my playlist is a better idea than just the playlist. it will save peopl time if they are not interested, but if they are, the preiews are still there.

i think william h. macy is such a under-rated actor - he's done some really great stuff...and you know, i think i'll tell randall i'll watch the cooler w/him again...i've seen it once, but what the hell, right?

i have never seen the cooler. i heard it was good. i think amoung mainstream audiences, that william h macy is overlooked, however, i think when you ask people who are passionate about film and who appriciate off color stuff, that most will agree that macy is a god of a actor
