Sorry about that, Chief.

Get Smart - 3/10. I like the TV show. This blows, though.

We've always had a strained relationship.

Funny People - 6/10. Adam Sandler does a great job being himself. It's unfortunate they had him play second fiddle to Seth Rogen, who publicly humiliates himself for the duration of the movie. Doesn't develop naturally. Forces things. Emotions and stuff. Jason Schwartzman plays the same character from 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' and I like that a lot about him.


Fried Green Tomatoes - 6/10. Exploitative fluff. Didn't cry.

Yes means everything.

No means nothing.

Here in the few remaining moments we have left,

just what do you propose we say in our defense?

It's easy to be enigmatic

when you don't know what you want.

Eventually, you must pick a side.

For simplicity's sake.

Some of us fracture.

Others simply deform.

Sometimes you've gotta break shit

You can't market 'Murderball' to corporate sponsors.

Murderball - 7/10. Bros wheelchairing bros. Builds to a few emotional climaxes, none of which it is able to achieve. Otherwise entertaining.

People are dying and we can save them.

That ought to be enough.

Like a poot

being squeezed out in a vacuum.

1, 2, 3, 4.

Was not enough, she wanted more.
5, 6, 7, 8.
Left her with a stomach-ache.

You can give them life,

but you can't make them interesting.

A bunch of metaphors

in a cornfield.

Saving it

makes it boring.

I used to encourage everyone I knew to make art; I don't do that anymore.

Exit Through The Gift Shop - 8/10. Art is easy. Meaning, that's the bitch. Entertaining, mysterious, and manages to make more than a few salient points about art, street art, the art world, what is good, and who gets to decide it.

There is nothing like a war

for the reinvention of lives.

We fit perfectly together when we dance,

this person I do not know.

BP redesigns.

For the Greenpeace contest, 2010

And then suddenly, as the old saying goes,

we got ourselves a game.

Forgive the intrusion, my lady –

I did not intend to offend your eye.
For I am vile, loathsome creature
and I have crawled in here to die.

Drop 'bows,

not bombs.

You know what happens when you been drinking?

You forget all the rules.


been weighing on me.

As long as there is a criminal element,

I’m of it.

The sewer lines run under this neighborhood, too.

Saw - 4/10. Great idea, poor execution. Should be continually remade until it gets it right.

Baby, you should know.

Orphan - 3/10. Poor idea, poor execution.

Before you know what kindness really is,

you must lose things.

Since when does age create gigantic waves and storms?

Since forever, honey.

So even if the cards are cold and marked by the hand of fate,

play up, play up like a gentleman and a sport.

It is amazing how brave you can be when you have no choice.

Also, I am on a lot of drugs.

If you gonna please everybody,

you gonna need the devil.

Keep your heart, 3-stacks,

keep your heart.

It's by doing whatever,

An attempt at logo designs.

Panorama people.

If you don't support gay marriage,

don't chew Juicy Fruit.

I start with the simple idea

that advertising is theft.

They gotta tell you somethin'.

Monster - 8/10. Everyone does a real nice job. It looks and feels like it was made in the early '90's. I guess that's a compliment.

A war of escalation.

Get Him To The Greek - 8.5/10. A constant one-upmanship against itself. Seconds or minutes seem to be cut out of every scene that give the whole movie this wonderful sense of momentum. It's really very good and funny and both of the relationships in the movie approach real, or my preferred version of real. As an aside, I'm tired of movies extolling the notion that the people who seem really happy and live life to the tits-end are secretly very lonely and it's us poor plebeians who make hard decisions about love and life and finances that are truly bless-ed indeed.

Ready, spaghetti.

Set to go, daddy-o.

Be kinder than necessary,

for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

We hold these truths

to be f-ing obvious, bro.

The problem is thinking it was yours.

Nine - 7/10. Unfortunately a musical. Daniel Day is poor as a stereotype. But then there is Marion Cotillard, who is just the purest thing. Cut around the bits that aren't about her.

Wherefore rejoice heavens, woe to earth and sea.

Drag Me To Hell - 6.5/10. Reveals Sam Raimi's strengths and weaknesses as a filmmaker. When he's stuck in a room, he is just a doll at creating a sense of claustrophobia and and impending craziness and the same scenario almost seems to force him to be inventive and fun. See: Evil Deads 1 and 2, which this, at its best, resembles. But he can't make it travel well. When he goes outside of a confined space or does anything that just serves to do something as simple as propel the plot forwards, it's... kind of like he gives up? Like he doesn't see the fun in it. It has to happen, so let it happen, just get me where I want to go. Where's my next set piece. He seems to say. With the way he makes movies. You get me? Couple that with a leading lady who isn't enough of an idiot, and you've got a movie that's too often boring.

EB, where you at?

I'm still here, mama. I'm still standing.

Notes on my hand.

Everything is broken,

no one can fix it.
