Hello all

Once again I am awake at 2:30 in the morning and unable to sleep, so I am in the middle of a movie and thought I’d post these reviews. I had an extremely productive day today, and I went and picked up the Target Exclusive Packaging for Quantum of Solace this morning. There’s not much else to note, so I hope y’all enjoy these reviews. 

(revisit) 77. The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972) – 10/10 <- – Reviewed before

(revisit) 78. The Godfather: Part II (Francis Ford Coppola, 1974) – 9.5/10 <- – One thing I would like to note about this viewing, is that I have always said that the second part is the best, but I think I know prefer the first.

79. I Love You, Man (John Hamburg, 2009) – 6/10 < – – I absolutely adored this film, but it did have its downsides. The first of being that the hang-out scenes, after Rudd and Segal became well-acquainted, get a bit old and repetitive, not to say that it was not funny just maybe a bit unnecessary. That being said, the movie itself is great and I am considering going and seeing it again. I honestly doubt that it will be in my Top Ten of 2009 like Forgetting Sarah Marshall was last year, but it’s a great flick regardless.

(revisit) 80. Saving Private Ryan (Steven Spielberg, 1998) – 8.5/10 <- – Michael and I watched this last Saturday, and it had been a good long while since I had seen it so it was good. I have seen it multiple times and there isn’t much I can say about it other than the fact that this is one of those movies that’s quality never lessens with increased viewings.

(revisit) 81. Hot Rod (Akiva Schaffer, 2007) – 4/10 <- – Reviewed before

Thank you for reading, expect an update again soon.
