The nerve of this clown, Peter "PJ" Jackson.  I sat through 161 minutes of dwarves in barrels and elves with arrows, only to find out that Smaug was barely in the flick.  Oh, they talked about Smaug, but that big bastard literally (in that Rob Lowe “Parks & Rec” voice) slept through the first ¾ of the film – and I should have followed his example.  I was actually jealous of a fictional dragon because he got to sleep through this joint and I bet he didn’t pay 18 bucks for it.

The Wolf of Wall Street

A blatant overabundance of wretched excess.  Drug abuse and drug addled behavior.  Sexual depravity.  Overindulgence of everything under the sun.  This is why ‘they’ hate us.  The Wolf of Wall Street was over the top in every possible category, including the run time and Leo’s pop-locking.  You almost get the sense that Marty and Leo may have been a little bit too close to the material when they filmed this, nahmean?  I kid/I joke.  Sorta...  Put it this way, the profanity in the opening scene has nothing to do with what was said.  Forever seared in my mental rolodex is the indelible image of a normal straw being misused in two of the wrong orifices- it’s filed under “CRAP I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO UNSEE.” 

Anyway, don't believe the hype about the Wolf.  Spike Lee's Oldboy was better (not groundbreaking but a better movie).

On the bright side, I think the Matthew McConaughey chest thumping humming scene is weird and unforgettable - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iszwuX1AK6A&t=1m48s
