Time Machine Movie Reviews

Because I am so attached to my Netflix queue (anyone want to be my Netflix Friend?) I rarely make it out to the theater. Blah blah blah all the same reasons everyone else gives — disruptive teenagers, tickets over $10, ringing cell phones. But a weird effect of this is that I wind up seeing movies way out of order.

There are two I’ve seen recently, with the same actress in common: A History of Violence and The Cooler. I’ll leave the real critique work to curt_holman and just say that both of them were extraordinarly good and for what it’s worth I think anyone who sees them would have to enjoy them. Maria Bello got to kiss Viggo Mortenson and William H. Macy. Lucky girl.

Speaking of kissing celebrities, I’ve had two nights of dreams absolutely packed with celebrity guest stars. I sheepishly admitted a few months ago (or so) to having a sex dream about Ben Affleck. Which is weird because really, really he’s not someone I would pick. While these most recent dreams have not been as naughty, the celebrities have been right on. They include, but are not limited to, Stephen Colbert and Josh Holloway. I can’t wait to go to sleep tonight.

  13. I’m afraid you can’t, or I would have rained havoc down on many of my Friends’ queues by now. But you can send a recommendation.

  16. History of Violence is brilliant, with perhaps the hottest and most disturbing (simultaneously) sex scene I’ve ever seen.

    When I first read this I perked up and thought “I’ll be your Netflix Friend!”
    But then I remembered I already am, and felt vaguely disappointed.
    I don’t guess it would help to drop and re-add each other…

    • Yeah, I get really excited for new Netflix Friends. I check everyone’s queue regularly and steal liberally. I know I’ve stolen stuff from yours, but can’t remember what.

  22. For me the hotness overrode my discomfort totally. I heard in the director’s commentary that after shooting that they were both bruised to hell and back. Hot.
