bitches ain't shit.

the name of the rose - 4/10. procedural crime drama with monks. zzz.

a man for all seasons - 6.5/10. a Job story. robert shaw's brief stint as king henry viii is the only lively bit in the movie. the rest of it is occupied by a stiff shakespearean actor who gets acclaim because he articulates his words and has a power in his voice no matter what he's saying. an actor that looks like he's acting. the subject matter interests me - thomas more refuses to accept the king's marriage to anne boleyn, but the king values his acceptance - but there is never any real struggle inside thomas more. his commitment to god is unfaltering and never questioned. as other reviews point out, it amounts to a chess match between two sides trying to outwit the other, but thomas more is always far smarter and the other side has to cheat. all i wanted was for thomas more to show some sign of weakness before he proved how strong he was.

poo butt.

3:10 to yuma - 6.5/10. i generally don't get westerns and i can't get behind the conceit of this one, which is basically 'let's get twenty people killed to get this one guy to this place where he's gonna die anyway.'

true romance - 7.5/10. there's a complete lack of cynicism in the romance which makes me like the movie even as it slowly becomes more and more typical.

they're not going up there to fish.

slapshot - 3/10. i watched this a long time ago and thought it was bad. i thought i might be wrong.

fuzzy ideas.

time bandits - 6.5/10. not as clever or imaginative as it would like itself to be. still, it's amiable. watch baron munchausen instead. total 8.5/10 there.

breathless - 8.5/10. i'm less good explaining why i like something as to why i don't like something. it's full of life.
