    Jane Eyre - There are so many different movies of this story, goddamn. This one has William Hurt and Charlotte Gainsbourg in it. And a really little Anna Paquin. I liked it ok. It focuses more on the story than the Fassbender/Wasikowska version, but it lacks the atmosphere and technical quality of that one immensely. I'll take the latter version over it any day.



    The Samurai Trilogy - Toshiro Mifune as Musashi Miyamoto, a real life samurai and renaissance man. All three flicks were pretty good, with moments of greatness. There were a couple giant fight sequences that I really loved and the climactic duel on the beach at sunrise in the third film was impressive as ****. I wouldn't put this at the top of my list of samurai movie recommendations, but they're worth watching for sure.



    Heartbreakers - Sometimes you just watch a movie because it's on, has a great cast and it has a lot of cleavage.



    The Night Of The Hunter - Quite possibly the best cinematography and use of lighting in a black and white movie that I've ever seen. Seriously. Great movie, too, but, holy crap, it looked amazing. Robert Mitchum is great in it as a preacher who murders a woman and terrorizes her children in pursuit of some hidden money. Loved it, and will be buying the Blu-ray next time someone is selling Criterions for half price.



    Red State - Not bad. Michael Parks was ****ing great. Had some funny lines that remind you you're watching a Kevin Smith movie, but otherwise it didn't feel like one much at all. Just like with jersey Girl, I like seeing Kevin Smith step out of his comfort zone a bit, even if it doesn't completely work. Too bad he's giving up on the business (or so he says) after his next one.



    You Only Live Twice - I was reading an article about Akiko Wakabayashi, the girl who plays the Bond girl Aki in the film and it made me want to watch this again. It's enjoyable in a ridiculous, kitschy way, but I don't care if I never see it again. Definitely a weaker entry in the Bond series.



    Finding Nemo - I actually had not seen this before. Not even close to my favorite Pixar movie, but very enjoyable.



    21 Jump Street - Pretty funny. I don't know that I'd buy it, but I enjoyed it and would watch it again.



    Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance - You know what? **** you, I liked this movie. It's stupid and awesome in all the ways I expected from a Neveldine/Taylor flick. Idris Elba and Ciaran Hinds were ****ing great, chewing scenery and enjoying themselves like you don't get to see very often (because they're usually playing serious roles). Really, my only gripe with this, and it's a sizable one, is Nicolas Cage. There are times when his over-acting seems like it fits with all the bat**** crazy going on, but mostly it's just distracting and annoying. Put almost anyone else in that role and I would be buying this movie right now. As it stands I'm kind of glad I got to see it for free on a free Starz preview weekend, but I wouldn't have felt bad if I'd paid to see it in a theater, either. Also, Ghost Rider himself looked ****ing bad ass. They did so much right with this flick, I just wish it could have been someone else.



    The Bad Sleep Well - Kurosawa's kinda-sorta Hamlet adaptation, with Toshiro Mifune as Hamlet, set in post-war Japan and focusing on a corrupt Japanese corporation. It's excellent. There's parts in the last 30 minutes or so that get a little melodramatic, but overall I loved it. Highly recommended.

    I really liked it. It's basically about three redneck siblings working as bootleggers during prohibition. Two of them are real strong, take-charge kind of guys and the third is meek but is trying to find his place. Some big-city deputy are trying to shut them down and they're obviously having none of it with some quite brutal scenes as a result. Tom Hardy stole the show, I loved his character and performance. Even Shia Labeouf was pretty good. Somethings felt a bit over the top and the ending wasn't quite a slam dunk but this is definitely a movie that I'd recommend.

    The Quiet Duel - The second Kurosawa/Mifune collaboration, and, I think, the only one not yet released by Criterion. Which is a shame because the quality of this now out of print DVD sucks. But the movie was solid. Mifune plays a surgeon who gets syphilis while operating on an infected patient in WWII. He comes home with the disease, which was not easily cured at the time and had an immense social stigma attached to it. He breaks things off with his fiancee and just keeps on keeping on. Like I said, it's a solid movie and Mifune is great in it. If Criterion ever does get around to it, I would recommend it.

    Catch-up post:

    Wreck-It Ralph. Awesome.

    Rise of the Guardians. Scary Boogeyman for kids under 10? Good start to hopefully more sequels.

    Premium Rush. Watched on airplane last week. Good bike action but goofy cuts/on-screen arrows. An utterly bizarre story with a horrible "villain".

    Cloud Atlas. Really good. Just too long though. Needed 30 mins chopped-off.

    Oh and Skyfall. One of the best of the year.

    Sadly Rise of the Guardians is a failure to the toon of Dreamworks is going to take a 50 million dollar hit on it from what I have read. I don't think it was advertised well and the general style of the characters is a little unpleasant.
