Why I buy an action figure:
Sounds about right.
153) ROADHOUSE (2012) (New Movie) (DVD)
You haven’t lived until you’ve seen this movie. It’s truly something special.
152) THE WOMAN (2011) (New Movie) (Netflix Instant)
This was one of those movies where the reputation truly preceded it. A modern exploitation film that I guess is trying to say how truly terrible people can be. Especially generic white dudes with 2.5 kids and a mini van. Anyway, the violence itself wasn’t as shocking as I was expecting, but the ending was truly satisfying. I do want to see more Lucky McKee movies, though.
151) LOCKOUT (AKA SPACEJAIL) (2012) (New Movie) (VOD)
This was almost to the point of “so bad its good” and yet it couldn’t even do that right. I think tweeting about it was more fun than the actual movie itself.
149) WILD TARGET (2010) (New Movie) (Netflix Instant)
An Emily Blunt movie? Sign me up! Bill Nighy and Ron Weasley were just bonuses. Also, it’s a pretty funny movie.
150) KILLER JOE (2012) (New Movie) (Angelika)
Easily the most messed up movie of the year that happens to have the best performance of Matthew McConaughey’s career. He plays a contract killer that happens to be a Dallas Police Department who gets hired by the nastiest white trash family ever. They never quite say what part of Dallas this takes place in, but I will avoid it like the plague. This is a good contender for a Top Ten movie for me. Also, you will never look at “K Fried C” the same way again.
148) GIVE ME THE BANJO (2011) (New Movie) (Netflix Instant)
As I was telling a friend recently, banjos in general have been popping up in my life. I saw this movie while browsing on Netflix and I could not be more pleased. A lot of the movie deals with late 1890’s/early 1900’s American music and culture all through the eyes of the banjo. As a musician myself, I already knew a lot of the history in the movie, but what fascinated me the most was when the movie gets into the technique of playing the banjo.
147) CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1982) (New Movie) (Master Pancake screening)
I’m not going to lie, I don’t really remember if I’ve seen this movie or not. But if I haven’t, then watching it with the Drafthouse’s comedy team Master Pancake was the best way to see it. This movie is hilarious. Funniest movie I’ve seen since 21 JUMP STREET this year.
