Costigan's extremely reckless arrest attempt after years of painstakingly careful undercover work, plus the fact he is sitting on a mountain of evidence he has already copied and merely needs to courier to a DA.
Dignam's completely unexplained emo disappearance after everything goes to shit, just when his undercovers (there couldn't only be one in the whole city, right?), which only he knows about and literally fought to protect, need him most. Sure, he was put on leave, but is a paid vacation really supposed to stop this guy?
Madolyn's absolute inaction at the end of the film when she is sitting on part of the mountain of evidence that was hand delivered to her. All she could do was give a glare that apparently implied an abortion of a child who might not even belong to the recipient of said stare.
And who the hell knew anything about Delahunt before the press release?

Going to see Hall Pass next week, looks pretty funny.
John Woo's The Killer - 8,2/10
Enter The Void
Best way to describe this film, a visual masterpiece with a weak plot. My main complaint would be that the film is way to fucking long. other then that it really is a visual orgasm. It's on netflix if anyone wants to check it out.
The 2nd one sucked ass. Streisand and Hoffman were totally miscast and the film was a pile of crap.
The 3rd one is an obvious money grab and nothing about the previews or any reviews I've read would suggest otherwise.
I'm just poking fun because you said your wife would run over someone with a car if they drink a Pepsi in front of her....not to mention that you have left a restaurant before because they served Pepsi instead of Coke.And your lame attempt about my wife running over me is cute, but you really look like a idiot and a complete fool for trying to rag on a married couples relationship imho, fwiw.
Your relationship is probaby great. Kudos to you guys.
And I think ChumpDumper is mistaking plot holes with his lack of understanding a character's motivation. On top of that, I don't see how it could have been any clearer that Madolyn gave Dignam the information. Did a scene of her giving it to him have to be shown?
Last watched at Cinemas: Black Swan 8/10
Last watched on dvd: Boogie Nights 7/10
Watched Crazy Heart for the first time last night. 7.1
I was prepared to like Machete but ended up hating it.
Maybe watching it again will help me master the annoyance and disappointment I felt the first time, long enough to evaluate its strengths. Its weaknesses (characters, story, performance) are fairly plain, I think.
I saw Scott Pilgrim for the first time recently too, I was quite surprised that it was pretty good.
Delahunt makes some sense now after seeing that scene once more, though -- except that nothing ever came of what he knew after being there longer than Costigan.
I'm sure I rated it too low; there are some great performances in it.

I'm reading the ... Dragon Tattoo book now. After I read all 3 books, I'll try out the movies.The Girl Who Played with Fire... 8/10
Re-watched Batman Begins
1st time I watched, I gave it a 7.5/10
Now it's a solid 9/10
It was infuriating to hear the same arguments made today made 20 years ago. I hope America doesn't suffer the same fate as Flint, MI.
I watched a bunch of movies lately but these two stand out in my head:
Takers (2010) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135084/)
This movie is about some bank robbers who have one bad heist that costs them dearly. If you thought "Heat" when you read this, you were right. It's basically the 2010 version of that Al Pacino/Robert DeNiro epic. With less acting firepower, you could imagine the lines to be delivered a little cornier, and the plot to be a little easier to predict. You'd be right about that too. But, this movie was entertaining and enjoyable, and that's all I need to see in an action flickto give it Two Spurs Up.
The Social Network (2010) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1285016/)
This one was hard to sit through. The character of Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO and founder) was irritating throughout. He was everything you'd imagine in a pompous little kid running a major tech company like it takes no skill. It was like watching Good Will Hunting but with more annoying cliche' Harvard Square scenes and fewer glimpses of Minnie Driver. Add in the denial of the real Zuckerberg camp that this is an accurate re-telling of the story of Facebook and you get a Two Spurs Down.
I don't understand how so many people would willingly watch a move starring both Hayden Christensen AND Paul Walker. I'd be afraid that much robotic acting would cause my TV to implode.

Takers 2 thumbs up?!
Social Network 2 thumbs down?
You have shit taste and your opinion is forever invalid.
Wall Street - Money never sleeps. It was okay and I thought the girl was a real cutie. .
Yes it was that damn good. All-time top 10 movie for me.
6/10, which is worth watching but probably would never see again.
Jackie Brown 9/10
The Exterminating Angel 9/10
Brief Encounter 9/10
Observe & Report: 4/10
