My Thoughts:

Very intriguing and fascinating movie even though at times I was confused as to what was going on.  :headscratch: It was like playing connect the dots... only the dots keep moving.

The message was clear... big business, more directly OIL business, dictates much of what happens in the world. Corruption, terrorism, political unrest, the removing of obstacles with extreme prejudice... all in a days work for the powers that be who jockey for control of the world's most valuable natural resource. Also, this movie does little to endear the viewer to the Arab oil barons whose obscene wealth is prominently on display.
Clooney was good, Damon was good, Jeffrey Wright was great! Also I've never seen Tim Blake Nelson in a suit before and it was quite a shock to the system.  :o

Great movie if not a bit confusing. Likely no more confusing than the real life double dealings employed by the oil companies.

Youth In Revolt, a review by KinkyCyborg


Youth In Revolt



Title:Youth in Revolt
Year: 2010
Director: Miguel Arteta
Rating: R
Length: 90 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Michael Cera
Portia Doubleday
Jean Smart
Zach Galifianakis
Erik Knudsen

Plot:Extras:

My Thoughts:

Funny comedy that manages to evenly space out the most humorous parts to help sustain the whole movie. Michael Cera is actually very good in an understated way. He slickly serves up sarcasm. Some fun appearances by Justin Long, Steve Buscemi & Ray Liotta but the best LOL moments came from Fred Willard who just isn't in movies enough. No one plays brainless better than him.  :laugh:

This won't crack my top 10 comedies but it is well above average.

Smallville Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 2: Disc 5:

EPISODE 17: ROSETTA
Determined to find out where he came from, Clark travels to New York to meet Dr. Virgil Swann (Christopher Reeve), a brilliant scientist who possesses a message for Clark from his home planet.

My Thoughts:
Another really good episode... but then how could you not like an episode of Christopher Reeve in it? I loved that homage to the Superman movies by having a clip of the Superman theme playing in the background.

EPISODE 18: VISITOR
Perhaps Clark is not alone on Planet Earth. A student with unusual interests and powers believes he's an alien - and he wants Clark to help him return to his far-off home world.

My Thoughts:
An OK episode... nothing really special here.

EPISODE 19: PRECIPICE
Clark must do community service and his family is slapped with a lawsuit after he roughs up men who hassled Lana. Lex tries to protect Helen from a deranged former boyfriend.

My Thoughts:
Again a decent episode ... nothing too special... other then it being the first episode where Lana starts to learn self defense. I have to admit though... I don't care much for the new sheriff.

EPISODE 20: WITNESS
Thugs who dain enormous strength by inhaling kryptonite mist leave Clark feeling powerless when they attack Jonathan and Martha. Lionel has a manipulative offer for Chloe.

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode... I enjoyed it. This is the start of a little feud between Clark and Chloe... which I don't care for... and it goes further then it should of... but it does make for a good storyline.
