This week “Nightcrawler” came out. Sean and Josh loved it, I hated it but for the same reasons they loved it, so at worst it’s effecting. It’s a satire on capitalism and it will piss you off. In my opinion character’s like this are more evil than serial killers and other murderers.
The other movie to come out this week was “Before I Go To Sleep.” Sean’s critic friend referred to this movie as “50 First Dates” as a thriller and it probably would have been better if Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were in it instead of Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
Our Undisputed Classic is “Peeping Tom.” It’s a movie that sticks with you. I didn’t like it the first time I saw it and the more I get away from it the more I like it. Sean has it among his favorite movies of all time. You should really check this movie out.
1984 – “The Killing Fields” Josh failed the sleep test and Sean thinks it’s over rated.
