I used to review movies here all the time, giving them a sentence or two and capturing my opinion briefly. I liked the format, but I just never kept it up. Here's the movies I've seen this year so far:
- The Raid: Redemption: this is a super-violent action movie from Indonesia but it is possibly the best action movie I've ever seen. Jackie Chan's best is better—his style of comedy pushes it over—but this is jam-packed, non-stop action. Beautiful action, at that.
- Ted: having been a longtime fan of Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles, I thought this would be a sure-fire laugh riot. It was mostly a raunchy groaner but the scene of partying with Flash Gordon was funny.
- Wreck-It Ralph: good fun for the whole family. It wasn't particularly memorable but it sure beats the deplorable Madagascar 3 or inane Ice Age movies.
