    I am creepy like that. I would watch Noah, as I have already seen Captain America 2.

    So is the Winter Soldier an unredeemably bad film? Or just bad to Sobchak and we all know how artsy fartsy he is. I've already promised a bunch of 17 year old males that I will take them tonight.

    I hated the first CA film. But (outside of WS), this one seems to be getting good reviews.

    It has its unbelievable parts but the vast majority of 17 year old males will really like the movie.

    I went stag with 5 other couples. Chris Evans got the ladies in our party to where they wanted to go. So, there's that.

    Finally got around to watching A Separation tonight with the wifey. 2011 Iranian film that won Oscar for best foreign flick. Excellent. But wow, you have to be a speed reader in some parts. Those subtitles fly by.

    God's not Dead.

    It was an interesting premise but not executed particularly well. The situations were heavily contrived and the resolutions were consummated in a simplistic fashion. Overall, I would rate as a don't go.

I'm not talking about stoning and dismemberment and the freakish exaggeration of sharia law, I'm talking about the 90% of sharia rulings that are done by harried and overworked local clerics. But I digress.
    KL, we loved A Separation so I am interested in seeing The Past, but I cannot locate it on Netflix. Is is listed under a foreign name or something?

    Sorry, it was on Redbox, not Netflix. I'm sure it is at a redbox near you.

    One more thing about director Fahardi: His movies seem so real. Notice how every family in a Tyler Perry movie is a doctor, lawyer or CEO? And every family is loving and wealthy except for when the plot calls for something else? And every Tyler Perry house is immaculately clean, with a maid or two in tow. That's not Fahardi. His characters seem so emotionally real-- they aren't particularly more self aware, or better groomed, or more profound, just because they are in a movie. They are uncertain, and a little (not a lot) rash, and unassuming, and get angry in ugly ways, and show compassion in unexpected ways. And the houses in his movies seem so messy and crowded, and old, and lived in. They seem like real houses that I've been to.

    Completely agree.

    One of the more compelling things in A Separation for us was the father with Alzheimer's. My wife has been caring for her mother with Alzheimer's for the past few years so it really hit home.

    Went to "Draft Day" yesterday. I have a hard time with sports movies because I too often find myself saying that couldn't happen or noticing actors that are the wrong size or the wrong age and their is plenty of that in this movie. My wife enjoyed it because she doesn't care about any of that stuff.

    Watched White House Down over the weekend. Stayed awake for the whole movie. I think there is something wrong with me.

    A girl in our office was playing this yesterday and I don't I've heard a worst song since Terry Jacks came out with Seasons in the Sun back in 1974.

    I saw The Last Days on Mars. If you are into zombie martians movies then there is a remote chance you might like this movie. Otherwise don't waste 98 minutes on this one and watch the classical Alien movie (again) instead. The both have the same plot.
