Monsters University - Did you like Monsters Inc.? Then you're gonna like Monsters University. It's exactly what you'd expect it to be: fun.
Paths Of Glory - Yeah, I'd actually never seen this before, but after going to the Kubrick exhibit at LACMA, I decided to get off my ass. Great ****ing movie. The cinematography was stunning. Kirk Douglas was great. Just an all around excellent film. The tracking shot through the trenches was impressive as hell. So so so good.
Lady Snowblood - Decided it had been too long since I last watched this, so I watched it again and reaffirmed that my Meiko Kaji obsession was justified. This flick does such a great job of straddling the line between tongue-in-cheek ridiculousness and serious samurai revenge flick that continues to impress me, even after having seen it a dozen times. One of my favorite films of all time.
American Mary - Not scary, but solid gross-out, body modification flick. It's unique and well done, to the point that even when nothing much was happening I was still enjoying it. If I had seen this in the theater, as opposed to buying the Blu-ray for $8 or whatever, I don't think I'd have run out and bought it, but now that I have it I'm keeping it. Probably lend it to gescom next time he wants to borrow movies from me. I dug it.
Calendar Girls - Ah, the perils of being married. I agreed to watch this in the interests of marital harmony and also because of Helen Mirren. It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Entertaining enough to sit through and it has Helen Mirren. I don't plan on watching it ever again, but if I somehow find myself doing so, at least I know it won't be painful.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - I'd never seen this before, but Michael Caine's in it, so I wanted to. It's not bad, but I must confess I never really got into Steve Martin. I don't have any problem with the guy and I don't dislike him, I've just never really found him to be that funny. The movie was enjoyable, and, goddamn it, I love Michael Caine, but it's pretty forgettable.
The Revenant - Watched this, finally, on JD's recommendation. Enjoyed it immensely. It's original and funny. Not perfect by any stretch, but much better than I would have expected had I not heard otherwise from others. I would like to own it someday, but I'm not in any hurry. Definitely planning to keep my eyes open for whatever director/writer Kerry Prior does next.
