Beyond (2010)
It was good. The story was tragic and interesting but the film didn't really do anything that hasn't already been done in this genre.

Alpha Dog (2006)
The young actors made some great performances but otherwise the movie was just very mediocre and forgettable.

That's it?! Wedding, honeymoon, pregnancy, some sharing of feelings, angry wolves and death and rebirth? I wasn't expecting much but man, this is just... complete shit. I wasn't even suppose to watch this, but since I found out that Christian Camargo's in it (as a vampire, which is pretty cool) I had to check it out. It was a pleasant minute that he was on the screen, but rest of the film... just annoying and most of all; BORING. Complete waste of my time.

Clerks II (2006)
Since I'm not a die hard Clerks fan, I guess I can appreciate this sequel on it's entertainment value... it was entertaining enough and once again the dialogue was great.

Clerks (1994)
Jay & Silent Bob, I freaking love those guys. The characters are really different and some really easy to relate to. Also the dialogue makes this film pretty great.

Here's some really enjoyable action. Girls kick ass indeed.

Not quite my cup of tea. It was entertaining enough, but also it wasn't anything special for me.

Really an odd way to handle this kind of topic, but very interesting. It didn't quite match my expectations, but it was worth a look. Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a great job.

High Fidelity (2000)
Great, maybe not quite the movie for someone my age, but it was still enjoyable. The characters were fun and easy to relate to.

Pretty weird and twisted... It didn't quite do it for me. And it's not the weirdness but the lack of quality in the twisted and weird things.

Gossip (2000)
I really mean it when I say this; this was a real surprise. I thought it might be worse than it actually was. The ending twist was a bit too much but it wasn't that bad.

So I decided to change my movie diary format to monthly versions, thanks to Xanadon't (and his great monthly movie journals like this:January Movie Journal - Xanadon't.) I've found them to be more interesting when other people do it, but didn't have the inspiration to do it myself, until now.

But remember, for me this is highly experimental, so I'm not even sure if I'll be able to keep this thing going...

Here's my last year's movie diary Movie Diary 2011

Aliens, Clerks, & High Fidelity are favorites of mine. Robocop is indeed entertaining, as is Clerks II (and as you said not as good as the first). Glad to see you're going monthly too! My list for January is now up if you'd like to check it out.

A Fist Full of Dollars is a classic! High Fidelity was one of those low-key movies that started out annoying but go under your skin and was really enjoyable. The Good Shepherd was too long and was really predictable by the end.
