It’s been a really long time since I’ve posted about TV shows or movies I’ve seen. Feel free to ignore my opinions. I have the right to my own, just like you have the right to yours.
I have these listed in viewing order.
Battlestar Galactica - This is now my favorite show. I felt hella geeky while watching it, but it’s so damn good. When it ended I felt like I was an addict running out of heroin. Which leads me to the next show I watched. (5/5)
Caprica - Not Battlestar Galactica. I thought watching the pieces come together in this Battlestar prequel was really neat. The religious war and the “V World” were very interesting. That’s a good way to sum this up… interesting. The whole season (it was canceled after one) kept on leading to something big. This is obvious. So when it ends and shows a preview for “next season on Caprica” I was pissed. The footage of things to come is everything I wanted to see in this series. Some people want to watch this before they get into Battlestar Galactica. DON’T! (3/5)
Red State - A complete disappointment. I really want to like Kevin Smith. He’s a good guy, but… There was literally nothing in this movie I enjoyed except for the final bit of dialogue. I wasn’t scared. I wasn’t excited. I think I might have chuckled once, but I don’t remember what was funny. (1.5/5)
The Thirteenth Floor - I really wanted to watch this when it came out (I was 8 or 9). That being said, this movie sucks. It’s like an updated Lawnmower Man. (1/5)
The Union: Business Behind Getting High - This was very interesting. Some of the people in it probably took away bits of credibility, but I learned things. I can’t say I watch a lot of documentaries about marijuana, but this might be worth watching if you like stuff about government conspiracies like I do. (2.5/5)
He Was A Quiet Man - I liked this. The acting was pretty bad, but the film was enjoyable. Not something I would think to recommend on a normal basis, but it’s okay. (2.5/5)
Middle Men - I was very surprised with how much I liked this. I’m not saying it’s superb, so don’t have high expectations. I would say it’s like Matchstick Men meets Blow. Luke Wilson was a good fit. Bump it up your queue. I approve.(3/5)
Take Me Home Tonight - I almost enjoyed this. It’s a good date night movie, but not much beyond that. All the pieces of this movie are good, but they don’t seem to fit when they should. (2.5/5)
Idiots & Angels - If you like animation for adults, this might be for you. If you like things that are dark and depressing, this might be for you. If you like movies with no dialogue, this might be for you. If you like artistic films, this might be for you. If you like Tom Waits, this is for you. That being said, this was for me. (3.25/5)
Dollhouse - I couldn’t get passed 15 minutes of the first episode. Does it get any better? Until someone answers me, I’m writing it off. Get it? (NA)
George Carlin: Life Is Worth Living - So good. (5/5)
The Fighter - Not at all what I thought it would be (in a good way). This was great. Christian Bale always amazes me. I don’t want to say more and ruin it. Very good. (4/5)
Pitch Black - hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. No. (2/5)
Metropia - Really cool! It’s artistic and weird. If you like things that are artistic and weird this needs to be seen. Awesome. (4/5)
Raising Hope (season 1) - Simple. That’s a good word. Nothing wrong with simple. I liked it. (3.5/5)
Rubber - Weird. Awkward. Without Reason. This is established from the get go. It’s a movie about a tire that kills people… and it’s amazing. Bump it up the queue! (3.5/5)
Lockout - Talk about disappointment. I really wanted to be wrong about this one. Bad. (1.5/5)
Silent House - Oh muh GOD! Silent House. Let’s talk about it. This took everything I liked about Funny Games and Strangers and added it’s own badass elements. The whole movie is done in real time. There is only one shot. No cuts. Not a one. The downside is seeing a slow shutter speed leave ghost trails every now and then, but it doesn’t matter. They sacrificed some potentially good shots to make the story more alive. Some might even argue the slow shutter speed works. It didn’t take me out of the film too much. I didn’t know there was a surprise ending until the surprise ending, because I didn’t think they could pull it off with how they shot this. I’m adding this to my list of movies to buy. (4/5)
The Raid: Redemption - “Oh holy sh…” probably came out of my mouth 30+ times. I loved every minute of it. I’m about to watch it again. DEFINITE BUY! (5/5)
Chronicle - I thought I was going to hate this movie and besides the ending I was wrong. I caught myself smiling on multiple occasions. I want superpowers. This is what I dreamed about every day of high school. (3.5/5)
That about sums up the last few weeks of my movie watching. Most of these are on Netflix Streaming. The last five are at redbox. Hope this helps if you’re trying to find something to watch.

Messing around with splitting the screen. Thought I’d start it off with my computer camera and a message to Julie. Sorry for the bad quality, the next one will be much better. Getting the living room set up for it right now.
