Brick: If you don't like it, blame Hunter!


I had actually seen this movie before, but I didn't remember the whole thing. Plus, with as many pictators as we have (it's really more of a socialist republic but there isn't any good pun for that), it's inevitable that someone will have seen one of the movies before. Anyway, this movie is really good. The stock summary is that it's a film noir set in a high school, which maybe sounds weird but is pretty awesome. Because it's a mystery, I don't want to say too much more than that on the off chance that someone who hasn't seen it stumbles upon this blog. But anyway, I liked the movie and more specifically its portrayal of people in high school as "real people." I will leave it to Hunter to elaborate on that because he has watched the director commentary and if I post what he told me from there he'll say I stole it from him.

The Brood: If you don't like it, blame Evan!

The Brood:

Alright. This was the inaugural flick pick, just kind of a spur of the moment thing. I really, really did not want to watch this movie. If you know me, you probably get that it's not really in keeping with my usual interests. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't think it was a good movie or anything, but it was an entertaining 92 minutes. It wasn't too too gory and it just had this weird 70s/Canadian vibe which as you can imagine is pretty chilling. I might have seen it before Evan picked it, but I just wasn't looking for anything that small.

Introductory Post!

Ok so here's how I was thinking this thing could work:
There will be a post for each movie we watch. This will be retroactive so I will add posts for The Brood, Brick, The Onion Movie, and Lolita. Then everyone can comment on the posts with like their thoughts or a minireview or whatever. Sounds good?
