2015 Movies

A hit-or-miss hodgepode of hyperbolicism...

That's a much better and more thorough explanation, but pretty much my thoughts exactly. I was being lazy. Even if I hadn't read the book, I think the movie would've still sucked. However, because I had read it, I knew there was so much more missing from the story. In the movie, some guys basically went up Everest and got caught in a "surprise" storm so people died. Alrighty then.

Just got done with "The Gift".....surprisingly good movie....makes you feel real uneasy throughout. Definitely recommend it if you're into that type of suspense/mystery type movie.

Straight Outta Compton was an enjoyable trip down memory lane

I was right, which makes me stupid for watching it.

Watched Bridge of Spies on the way back from Denver. The very definition of not good but not bad either.

Watched Spotlight on Friday night... Keaton's second-best movie playing a newspaper man, but easily the best movie I have seen yet from 2015 (among the 5 or 6 of them).

Watched Spectre the other day...

For a guy that loves James Bond and really likes Daniel Craig as James Bond, this movie was extremely disappointing. I mean, it's the story of Spectre... that's a big one.

Star Wars was fucking awesome and any of you that say differently are simply mistaken.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

I was not equipped to understand what Anomalisa was all about but willing to call it in the average-range anyway. 4.5/10

It is a movie about the perils of routine and familiarity.

I apparently do not value my time and watched the new Vacation and it sucked just as much as you would imagine it sucks.

I watched that when it came our on video.

I remember that it surprised me, but I can't recall in what way....
