Finally saw American Sniper.  I dont understand what all the controversy was about.  Good movie, not great.

Self-Less was a fair movie, 3 out of 5 popcorns, so if you want to wait for the small screen.....cool; salty language and quicky bed room scenes (PG-13!), but in the end it honors family.

It was a good movie, with great editing and direction.

I thought so, too, though the fake baby was pretty obvious.

In the history of art--visual, textual, aural--has there ever been a more insightful, accurate, and profound metaphor for sin, resurrection, and paradise? If there has been, I have not heard of it.

You excluded the first trio of terms (visual, textual, aural), instead condensing stuff in one term (how typical of you!) leaving lop-sided my triune polysymphony of trinities in profundical awesomeness :(

If i had to choose between the two, I would choose Gran Turino, just because Clint starred in it and I thought just did a great job.

Well, Bernie was all those things too. Paradise, just look at his house.  Sin, a murderer and an adulterer.  Resurrection, rises from the dead, though still dead, and shows Jonathan Silverman and Andrew Mc Carthy the time of their lives.

I just saw Ant-Man on Saturday night. It was fairly funny (though at times it tried to hard to be funny), but it was not one of Marvel's bets movies.

Metropolitan by Whit Stillman.

A bit familiar. Somewhat inaccurate. A bit boring.

Watched Child 44 which was ok. I liked the idea of someone trying to uncover truth in an environment created to avoid all forms of truth.

Ant-Man is Marvel's work that feels more like a TV family movie.

Frequencies throws an odd twist into romantic comedies with its low sci-fi and philosophical take.

I took my three year old to see Minions yesterday. It was cute and even witty at times but nothing close to Despicable Me, though it does make connections to that movie.

Southpaw...very standard fare. Tears and happy ending. Wait for TV.
The kid's terrific and the main guy has a body that is nothing if not magnificent. Coulda' used him in my college anatomy class!
It was made by those that do not like boxing....made a good point on that.

Watched Ravenous on TV t'other night. Not a horror fan but it had dark humor and cannibalism, so could one go wrong?
Don't like "wet horror movies" and this had enough to gag a maggot, however! that aside, a good flick, if only to watch the power plays of Good and Evil, Nietzsche & Christianity.
OK, I go far out a bit, however after reading this month's FIRST THINGS article by their winner (only moments before the movie) it was a home run, if not a grand slam.
Recommend, yes, if you've time to kill or need to rest up.

Iron Man, for the umpteenth time. Young one's choice, and no one else complained. :)

I watched the first 2 LOTR movies over the last ~30 hours, and am halfway through the 3rd. Well, not watch so much as have on in the background and catch bits here and there. Still... poor Ned Stark, poor Boromir...
