PDQ Reviews: Round 2

‘Cause I’m just too lazy at the moment.

Match Point: Laughable in areas. Reminded me of Dial M For Murder a little bit.

Being John Malkovich: Crazy.

My Blueberry Nights: Beautiful, slow pacing, great performances from the men. :)

Thelma and Louise: Stands the test of time; better than I thought it would be. Love the Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid homage, which brings up some interesting questions about that film as well…

Stand By Me: A treat that I found in the $5 bin at WalMart. Nostalgic goodness.

[And I’ll toss this one in for Rick’s reading pleasure. ;-) ]

My Kid Could Paint That: Fascinating story and discussion of art. Technically lacking, however.

NetFlix Update

1. Dracula: Dead and Loving It (Dir. Mel Brooks)

Why Did You Pick That?

I’ve been wanting to watch more of Mel Brooks’ lesser-known films, and the serious/comedy ratio is far in favor of serious at the moment.

2. Pi (Dir. Darren Aronofsky)

Why Did You Pick That?

I’ve seen all of Aronofsky’s films except for this one.

3. My Kid Could Paint That (Dir. Amir Bar-Lev)

Why Did You Pick That?

I’ve been interested in it for a while, but Jeffrey Overstreet’s recent post about the film bumped it to the top of me queue.
