    Lot to like about Interstellar. I just think it was odd that none of the main characters argued the thought of the astronauts relaying false data. Or how do you know that the numbers themselves were coming from the crew of NASA's "Lazarus missions?

    We got out to the "artsy" theater here in Austin and saw 'Foxcatcher'. I loved it. Carrell, Ruffalo and Tatum were amazing. Even if you don't care about the story their performances make it worth seeing.

    Me and the wife went to see Big Eyes this past weekend. Really good movie. I didn't know if I would like this or not but it was a fascinating and true story. Amy Admas and Christopher Waltz were both really good.

    I've watched several movies recently since I've had a bit more time off.

    My favorite was "Birdman". The story itself isn't that good, but the way it is shot is just so cool. There are 10-20 minute sequences with no cuts and continuous motion, which is pretty cool to watch.

    "American Sniper" was a bit of a let down for me. It is acted well, but I thought the movie was a mess because they couldn't decide what they wanted it to be. There is this sniper war story, and this competing sniper story and the home story and the PTSD story and then they sort of gloss over his death.

    "Dear White People" was really dumb, wouldn't recommend at all.

    "The Imitation Game" was also a bit of a let down. It is more of a biopic than a movie and honestly is just boring.

    I have not seen it, but that is pretty strange to gloss over his death, especially with part of the story being about PTSD. Wasn't he killed by a soldier on a shooting range he was trying to help through PTSD?

    Although, I suppose the movie is based on the book written by Kyle, and he was not around to write about his death.

    Either way, it is hard to get excited for a movie directed by a 117 year old Clint Eastwood.

    It is basically where the movie stops. He goes outside to drive with the solider to the range and then it says what happened to him and shows footage from his actual funeral while the credits role. That part is very emotional, but that is part of the problem, is that was the most emotional part, but wasn't in the movie.

    I saw that a few weeks ago. Knowing the background of the story made it painful to watch for me. Knowing what was going to happen at the end, it just made everything super weird. Great acting, but man, I just found myself feeling uncomfortable watching it knowing that it really happened.

    If 2013 was the year I wrote off superhero movies, then 2014 will go down as the year I was done with biopics. They're boring, usually one-sided and lacking any sort of perspective, and worst of all they're unoriginal stories dressed up as awards bait. Ugh, it seems like every acting performance drawing considerable praise has to be from one... /rant

    Now, you can laugh at it but that was an important movie. Peyronie's disease is a real thing and something that many men and their significant other's have to take a serious look at.

    I could be wrong about the subject of that movie, I didn't see that garbage.

    Well, I hadn't heard the story and knew that the movie was based on real events. Had planned to go see it with family, but not after having both the ending spoiled as well as the entire final scene of the film.
