Shut Up, Crime!

Okay, so, I was in a whiny funk yesterday (shocking, I know). I’d like to add that I did watch and enjoy the following films that are decidedly not about cranky old men:

  • Super
  • Collateral
  • The Evil Dead
  • Evil Dead II
  • Army of Darkness
  • P2 (okay, this one wasn’t actually very good, but I sure did enjoy extended looks at Rachel Nichols’s pushed-up cleavage!)
  • The Untouchables
  • The Last of Sheila
  • L.A. Story
  • Funny People (I seem to remember this getting mixed to negative reviews, and plenty of people I know and respect hated it, but I thought it was great, if ramshackle and uneven — like all Judd Apatow films)
  • Me and You and Everyone We Know
  • Vampire Hunter D
  • Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
  • The Woods
  • Telefon (okay, this one is about a cranky old man — but Charles fucking Bronson’s Soviet disdain is tempered by Lee Remick’s middle-aged foxiness and somewhat annoyingly chipper demeanor)
