    I want to watch MS. 45 now,
    Wasn't Cameron Mitchell in that????

    You might be confusing it with The Toolbox Murders.

    Wanted to see this...badly. On HBO/HBO on Demand. Great pedigree. I am not a HUGE fan of Gosling/Cooper, yet I understand they are top box office. They are BOTH used to terrific effect. Gosling's aw shucks smirk and Cooper's earnestness/oilyness just work. The story itself...well it plays like an OPRAH book of the month club selection. Definitely a way too many coincedences flick disguised as deep art house cinema. End result...a REALLY GOOD Lifetime flick. Things that push it over...a soundtrack by Mike Patton that uses dischordant piano and really ****ed up choir selections...Joel Edgerton, as a catalyst for tragedy...yet still completely likeable, and Dane DeHaan, who I seriously have a ****ing I GOTSTA WATCH THIS KID vibe on. It kinda punks out on the natural progression that you almost WANT to happen, yet, after days of living with it, I accept it.
    Short story...you should watch this.

    OH. And WHY is nobody giving RAY LIOTTA the project he deserves???? For chrissake...10 minutes of screen-time and just so goddamn menacing that it is hard to watch. You want proof of this guy's power...see NARC, SMOKING ACES, and that episode of ER he was on as the dude with the failing liver(directed by QT...I think). Man...Liotta scares me.

    Saw I, Frankenstein preview tonight. Decent with enough to be different from Underworld. Light on character development and story. 3.5/5.

    God this movie is lurid. Darkness. Exceeds King's novella, which was unpleasant itself. One of those instances where 'just because it is very well done' does not justify it's existence. When the concentration camp survivor makes the connection, and stumbles out into the hallway reaching for the first HUMAN he can so he can BAWL HIS EYES OUT...that's just too much man...too much. And I have to hand it to Bryan Singer...just a tremendously well made movie THAT I NEVER WANT TO SEE AGAIN.



    And this...just shows why Singer cannot do BIG movies. This was SO LONG...so loud...so empty. Good lord, great cast and so much going on...yet it was soooooooooo tiresome. CGI overkill mixed with a script that just....wanders. Not a kids flick, nor an adult take. Pooooooor Ewan Macgregor tries sooooooooooo hard to do heavy lifting. But he just...CAN'T.

    Finally saw "12 Years A Slave". Wow, just an awesome movie. So powerful. It's going to be hard to pick the Oscars this year.

    The short version:

    I like prison escape movies, how they probe and figure out weaknesses... they can be quite clever. Unfortunately this is not clever, it's absurd. It has the story of a bad 80s action movie which in retrospect I probably should have expected. But I didn't care for The Expendables either so take that into consideration.




    Good movie, it could easily have been an uneventful 130 minutes but they did a really good job of keeping it going even when it's slow, if that makes sense. And Tom Hanks is tremendous and elevates the whole thing.

    Oh my sweet jeebus this is a franchise killer. Tries SO hard to be some existential/artsy French Alain Delon 'caper' flick. Completely forgets what made the first one charming and FUN. Good god sooooooo pretentious. I know...'you are just seeing this now'? Yup. And it broke my heart. What a turd.



    I tried so hard. I really did. Made it through first 2...and got tired of trend to tell incomplete short stories. The framing device was soooooo amateurishly filmed/acted...I tapped out. The second vignette with the POV/sportscam Zed word story wasn't horrible...but it was not enough to make me keep watching neither. sooooooooo disappointing.
