3rd Week of Jan

Gulliver's.Travels.(1996) [* * * *] Funnily enough, I've never read Gulliver's Travels even though its a classic, so it was very enlightening. But it definitely isn't a story for kids - it's a story for arrogant adults, making fun of human foibles. (I think Jonathan Swift, like Hans Christian Anderson, Jules Verne and R L Stevenson, wrote for adults or very cruel children.)

Dinner For Schmucks (2010) [* * * *] This would be a good movie except for the absolutely irritating schmuck, which was probably the point of it. Whoever wrote this has really understood annoying people!:)

Jonah Hex (2010) [* * *] John Malcovich - so should have been awesome, but mostly shot in the dark. And something was off - probably a story without a moral like most cowboy tales.

The Last Song (2010) [* *] Quite a sweet story about a divorced couple and their kids and how they cope with cancer in the family. But I'm not really up for sad movies these days.

Dead snow (2009) [* *] Holiday Horror and very gory about college students on a haunted hill full of Nazis.

Dogma (1999) [* *] Funnily enough it wasn't good. It was supposed to be a comedy about god and angels, even had two of my favorite actors, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and non-movie stars like George Carlin, Alanis Morrisette, etc. but it did nothing for me.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (2009) [* *] Another american teen movie for limited iqs.
