Since I’m a freelancer (read….unemployed) I have a lot of time to watch movies. To take a page from my friend Tommy Cary (read his blog too), here is my rundown of recent movies I’ve seen through Netflix or in theaters and what I’ve thought.

Netflix –

Weeds (Seasons 1-3) – Awesome show that follows a housewife who jumps into the drug trade to let her family continue living their cushy southern California life after the sudden death of her husband. Still waiting on Seasons 4 and 5 through Netflix… (9/10)

City of God – I like movies with subtitles, makes me feel like I’m reading a book at the same time, mom would be proud. Follows a young boy in Rio de Janeiro through the slum life on his journey to become a photographer. Subtitled in English, Portuguese is spoken throughout. (8/10)

There Will Be Blood – Eh, kind of boring. Everyone loves a “I drink your milkshake” reference though… (5/10)

WALL-E – Pixar can do no wrong. A robot love story. A warning to the ever-increasing sedentary lifestyle of people. Awesome movie. (10/10)

Theater

X-Men Origins – Wolverine – Poo.
