89. The Last Resort (3/27/2011)
The Last Resort is a little indie horror film which, like a lot of little indie horror films, has a cool concept but mediocre execution. The concept is that a hedonistic resort was cursed and any who go there end up giving in to their deepest desires to the point where it consumes them. It is available on Netflix Instant Streaming but you should probably just avoid it.
90. The Tourist (3/27/2011)
Despite having both Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, The Tourist received a ton of crap from the film going public. A lot of this criticism was leveled at it due to the acting nominations for both stars at The Golden Globes. The noms were not deserved but the film itself was an often charming light hearted caper/thriller that I found to be perfectly watchable.
91. Creep (3/27/2011)
Creep is a British horror film that takes place in a subway system beneath what I assume is London. It is a weird little film with a monster that kind of reminds me of Gollum. Meh...
92. Inferno (3/27/2011)
I am still trying to understand the appeal of Dario Argento's style of horror filmaking. Inferno is the second in his famous Three Mother's trilogy and while I feel it is a better film than Suspiria I am still not feeling what makes it so revered.
93. Jonah Hex (3/28/2011)
Considering the amount of crap this film received when it was released I was expecting a far greater shit storm than what this was. Do not get me wrong, it is still a very poorly put together film but I enjoyed aspects of it and it made me want to look into the comic series (for about a minute).
94. Animal Kingdom (3/30/2011)
I would love to be able to tell you I really, really enjoyed this film but I can not. It is very well acted, well directed, well scripted, etc... but I also found it to be a bit slow. The last twenty minutes of the film make the entire ride worthwhile though and I would still recommend it to people if you enjoy crime dramas. You can hear my full thoughts on the film on the latest episode of Movie Dudes.
95. Fair Game (3/31/2011)
Calling Fair Game a political thriller would be mis-categorizing it. The film is more a political drama than anything else. Based on the true story of Valerie Plame, a CIA agent, being outed by the White House in retaliation to her husband writing an op/ed piece criticizing the data used to invade Iraq. The film thrives because of the wonderful acting of both Naomi Watts and Sean Penn (whom I generally dislike) and I felt it was quite entertaining.
96. Morning Glory (4/1/2011)
Rachel McAdams plays a young television producer tasked with the unenviable job of turning around a struggling morning talk show/news program. Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford star as the two show anchors and they are quite enjoyable in their roles but it is the beautiful McAdams who steals the show. Morning Glory is just enjoyable to watch. Its fluff but fun, happy fluff and every once in a while you need a little of that.
97. Proteus (4/2/2011)
Explaining what Proteus is giving the film way too much time. Just think low budget Aliens mixed with lower budget Deep Rising minus the humor and blatant Star Wars references.
98. Source Code (4/2/2011)
Full review coming tomorrow (fingers are crossed that I get it done) but you can hear my full thoughts on Movie Dudes right now.
That was my week, how was yours?
