It's TOBI month and to avoid being bored I've come up with a 30 day plan while doing 2,240 minutes of TOBI treatments. Now that we have a DVR in the basement, I will be recording and watching movies I've always wanted to see but never have. I'll also put in my review without giving away the ending.
The Rock - It's hard to believe that I've never seen this movie. Usually when a movie is about 2.5 hours (See all of the Lord of the Rings flicks), I get bored in the theater. So I decided to give The Rock a shot. I'm going on a point scale of 1 - 10 and I'm giving it a 7. It was slow at points but the end was good. Cage gets on my nerves a bit but Connery made this movie. Ed Harris was good too.
About Schmidt - this was a very depressing movie but also motivated me to make something more of my life. I felt bad for Schmidt. His life sucked and his relationships were terrible. I gave the movie a 7 out of 10.
Goodfellas - Where has this movie been all my life? Oh yeah, it's called Casino. I loved Casino and had to watch Goodfellas. I loved Peshi as I always do and Ray Liotta was awesome. I gave it a 9 out of 10. Great action. Probably not good for the kids.
The Kids are All Right - Depressing. See a theme here. I like to watch sad movies. It makes me feel better about my life. It was a little slow but it really made me think about how we judge other people and have no idea what their circumstances are. I gave it a 7.5. Annette Benning was awesome.
Pacific Heights - I'd always meant to see this movie. Unless you're really bored, probably not worth it. 6 out of 10.
Crazy Stupid Love - cute movie. It was the 40 year old virgin meets the royal tennenbaums. I gave it a 7.5 out of 10.
Fiddler on the Roof - hard to believe I have not seen this entire classic. I'm about 90% of the way in. The story itself is decent but the music is incredible. I would give it a 7 out of 10. Here's how cultured I am. I see the father in this movie and I don't think about the fact that he's a great actor or that he's a wonderful singer. I say "That's the professor from Flash Gordon!"
The Dark Knight Rises - Obviously I saw this in the theater with Andrea. Tremendous flick! I gave it a 9.5 out of 10. I love how you have to think at the end. I won't ruin it for everybody but it definitely keeps your attention throughout.
In Time - This movie starts Justin Timberlake and it's a sci-fi movie. It's really interesting as time is essentially your currency. I gave it a 7 out of 10.
Please send me a list of underrated movies I just have to see. I hope everyone is well.
