#127: Terminator Genisys - MovieCount 2015

Loved it. Pretty badass. A bit confused at times, but that's time travel for ya. And John Conner wasn't a little bitch like in T2.

#118 - Soaked in Bleach - MovieCount 2015

Analytical breakdown of Kurt Cobain's death. This documentary/docudrama is so much different than Montage of Heck (plus no music rights, so no Nirvana) but it also could have also been a 100 minute conclusion. It's entertainment vs. cold hard facts. And what this movie suggests, is something that I (and many others) have assumed since his death, that it was a murder, and it points to Courtney Love. Evidence & forensics, testaments & testimony, motivations & motives, the facts are compelling.

#110: A.I. Artificial Intelligence - MovieCount 2015

Every second Teddy is in this film is the best. I love this movie. For as much as I love everything about this movie, I love Teddy 10 times more. Every action, every sound. The voice of reason, who follows & tries to protect this crazed robot child, until it ultimately kills him. Luckily he comes back.
