just watched The Talented Mr. Ripley

seems to be a bit overrated, too long and just kind of forced.

2/5

just saw magnolia for the first time. it's a shame it took me this long to see it, that was pretty fantastic.

saw the hangover the other day too, didn't live up to the hype just quite but it was still hilarious.

I watched Fubar the mockumentary, very funny and good. Some great lines in there, and my friend said I had to see it because my last name is Ferrall.

nic cage is fascinating. this might be the last legitimate good performance he's had. his career has become a wonderful trainwreck though.
