    ★★

    I watched the whole thing; to write a review now would just be even more exhausting,

  • Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion

    Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion

    ★★★★

    I must say, this Italian police drama has my first protagonist who is a Fascist, murderous asshole cop! What's worse, he threatens to take away the station's cappuccino machine! Ba fangule!

    This film is wonderful, stylishly shot and beautifully scripted. You might also, uh, stumble over some meaningful views on fascism and the police state!

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A stacked cast can't totally save this one, though it does offer some laughs and a strong anti-Right Wing viewpoint. Seth Rogan was less obnoxious than he could have been. Hader funny as usual. A wholesome comedy, though I thought that Frost should have left with the alien. No chick, he loves sci-fi, he's overweight on Earth, would live forever, etc. Better than most Hollywood "comedies".

  • A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

    A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

    ★★★★

    The best of the three Harold and Kumar movies, this one has a non-stop pace and solid jokes throughout. Also, a very nice use of cameos. Neil Patrick Harris does his usual thing, back from the dead. He is a classic character in these films. The gross-out factor is still strong in this one, with an update on the "Christmas Story" but much more painful. The quest in this one is that Harold must replace his father-in-law's (Danny Trejo) Christmas…
