    Saw it in 3D, but I prefer 2D generally. I need to remind myself to bring my own lens cleaner when going to a 3D movie. I don't know exactly what I expected going into this movie, but I suspect it would have caught me by pleasant surprise under any circumstance. I agree this movie delivered in all departments. Now I can finally feel free to crack open the book.

    The Last Dragon - Hadn't seen this in a long time. It wasn't quite as funny as I remembered it being, but it was still funny.



    Heavenly Creatures - Yeah, I'd actually never seen this before. Pretty good movie. Had some very Peter Jackson-esque moments, but overall it was pretty restrained and that worked. I'd watch it again, but I wouldn't buy it.



    Pitch Perfect - So, to offset the woman going to see Django Unchained, I had to watch one of her movies with her. This turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting and if someone could edit out all the parts with singing and dancing, I might even be willing to say I enjoyed it. Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins, who play commentators (as if this **** was televised) were pretty funny every single time they were on screen and for some reason I can't yet explain, I like Anna Kendrick. But all the dancing and singing (oh god, the MUSUC WAS HORRIBLE) was a chore to sit through.



    Come Drink With Me - An old Shaw Brothers classic about a beautiful woman who kicks a whole bunch of asses. Clearly, a huge influence on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (and, from what I've read, a very large number of action films in general since it's release). It was pretty good fun, although compared to today, a lot of the fights seemed slow. Action choreography has come a long, long way. Chang pei-Pei is great, though, and like I said, it's good fun.



    Miller's Crossing - So ****ing good. My favorite Coens movie after The Big Lebowski. Best dialogue in a movie ever? Might just be.



    The Replacement Killers - Slightly above average shooter flick for it's style and looks, because Chow Yun Fat is so ****ing cool and Mira Sorvino is so ****ing hot. Was on one of the movie channels and I hadn't seen it in a while.



    The Bank Job - Solid heist flick, and Statham only punches one or two people. This one actually gets by on the story! I dug it.



    Sam Jackson gets out of prison after 25 years and attempts to go straight, but gets sucked back in to the life of a grifter by the son of his old partner. Another pretty solid flick, although the ending was kinda so-so. I'm a big SLJ fan, though, and it's always nice to see him in a small, character flick like this. Definitely worth a rent.

    Bank Job was a real surprise. Statham CAN act. More filmakers should try to harness that.

    Nicolas Cage thinks that Jason Statham is generally poor at picking scripts.

    Not sure Statham gets the range of scripts others do. I think he is stuck in a typecasting deal. Even in stuff where he is playing...'the Statham', he has flourishes that show he is capable of more. Is he like the Rock, who can go from mono-syllabic to family flick, no. But The Bank Job does show he is capable of delivering lines as well as punches.

    It has gotten a little better the last few years, but before that Statham seemed to pick the worst movies possible to be in and it is just a waste since he is very entertaining doing his 'tough guy with a sense of humor' thing. Statham obviously isn't getting the script for Lincoln, but there are good action movies and bad ones. I thought Killer Elite was pretty enjoyable.

    Actually if you look at it his early stuff was more varied. Guy Ritchie is really responsible for bringing us 'the Statham'. Lock/Stock and Snatch show just how good he can be in a part that isn't all about kicking ass. Revolver was a mess though. But even in the Transporter movies...and sorry, the CRANK flicks(gonna get some blowback here for sure), he shows that he can handle a more complex character than a lot of his recent stuff has panned out to be. Not saying he's Brando...just saying that the one dimensional actioners are kinda a waste of his potential.

    Watched 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World' last night. Really enjoyed it.
