Funk's House of Geekery

Out of 154 total movies seen. The movies had to be released in the US (because that’s where I am) between January 1st and December 31st, in theaters or on VOD.

30. Run and Jump

The Irish Casey family’s world is turned upside down when their patriarch, Connor, suffers a stroke dynamically changing his personality.

Will Forte plays the doctor, and Connor MacLiam plays the father suffering from a stroke. Both give outstanding nuanced performances, but both also have the screen completely stolen from them by Maxine Pearke as Connor’s wife, Vanetia, trying to keep the family from falling apart.

  1. We saw a bunch of astonishing ly good movies, all small independent productions, none memtioned in any way at the Oscars: STILL MINE, probably the movie of the decade, MUD, NEBRASKA, CLOUDBURST

      I’ve seen Nebraska (being from Nebraska). It was almost too close to real life since it was shot in Billings, Lincoln, and Plainview, Nebraska, all places my husband has lived. (I never lived in Plainview but the others, yes). It got some Oscar nods last year, I remember. Great movie.
