Well, it's summer and I'm seeing a lot of movies. Not just the big summer blockbusters, either. These are the benefits of being situated in a part of Boston with easy access to a few art house movie theaters along with big ass stadium seating multiplexes.

Rather then create a thread for each one, I'm just lumping these inevitably-lesser-seen indy films together.

Let me know if you've also seen any of these and what you thought:


I'm a fan of Terrence Malick but I had a hard time sitting through his latest. It felt like being pinned under a tree and forced to stare at the stars and ponder the immensity of Creation.

Review with SPOILERS:


Woody Allen's latest. It's being heralded, overly so, as one of his best films. It's enjoyable froth, but it's no Match Point. Still, it's fun.

Review with SPOILERS:


What to do when your elderly father reveals he's gay and has terminal cancer. Even with that downer of a central plotline, there's a bit of humor and a sweet, complicated romance between Ewan McGregor and Melanie Laurent.

Review with SPOILERS:


Disappointing teen drama starring Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts set in New York City. The script starts off smartly but as the movie lurches forward I found just about everything lacking overall.

Midnight In Paris isn't one of Woody's best overall, but it's certainly his best in a long while. It's just fun -- Owen Wilson is, in my opinion, captures the 'faux-Woody' main character better than any of the other faux-Woodies in Allen's recent films.

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

I liked the show quite a bit, however most of the really funny stuff ("No dad!" and "Oklahoma... AWESOME") were pretty much one time jokes. I'd have to see a few episodes before really judging its value.
