Winslet and Brolin do some solid work here, but Jason Reitman was just not the right choice to direct this. His strengths have always been in fleshing out sarcastic, misanthropic leads; every attempt at earnestness here comes off as incredibly manufactured, and even embarrassing (especially the "mashing" scene).

It's goofy as hell, but it's decent summer entertainment with great special effects and a likable cast.

Clear History (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 39min.
First Viewing
Essentially an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm stretched out to 99 minutes, which would be fun if it did anything with the extra time. Instead, it strands a game cast in a movie that presents itself as a sort of satire about wealth, but is really an exercise in pointlessness.

Her (2013)

DVD- 2hrs. 6min.
First Viewing
A beautiful movie that's simply perfect in every department (acting, writing, etc.) It's always so puzzling to me that its usually movies about objects (this, Toy Story, A.I.) that tap into the human experience; love, hate, acceptance, aging, etc.

DVD- 1hr. 34min.

How sad it is to go from such a tremendous movie like Her, to a turgid, unoriginal piece of subhuman shit like this. That Awkward Moment tries to be a romantic comedy for guys, and it mostly succeeds at it. Though the "guys" in question would have to be brain-dead or in a coma. The characters are paper-thin, the dialogue is awful (most lines begin with one of the leads making a stupid proclamtion starting with "dude" or "bro"), and the editing sugests that the movie has just been cut to hell trying to salvage anything remotely resembling a movie. To sum up, this is "that awkward moment" when I proclaim "bro, your movie sucks balls!" Too much?

A smart, entertaining character study with a top notch cast working from a slow burning script. Surprised me by just how fun it was to watch.

Surprisingly entertaining rom-com that's not even remotely original, but features a strong roster of performers having a blast on screen.

Another unoriginal but well made relationship comedy. The cast is solid too, with Hart and Hall stealing every scene.

That Awkward Moment just got some strong competition for worst of the month. I, Frankenstein is essentially 20 to 30 different movies throne into a blender, and apparently none of them were even remotely good because this is just a boring movie. Boring. Boring. Boring.

Trying to cast away the script.
DVD- 2hrs. 10min.
First Viewing
Another tween book series adaptation, this time about sorcerors. Or witches. I can't really remember. I do remember that it tried to get the audience on board with potential sibling banging, so I guess that's something.

Wild sci-fi romp that's so goofy and amusing that it could even make the most stonefaced of people smile. Perfect summer viewing.
