    It is in the vein of something like The Fisher King, which is one of the wife's and my favorite movies. I just enjoy offbeat stuff I guess. We loved Moonrise Kingdom. But it is truly a taste that needs to be acquired ...

    I will be seeing GBH this weekend. I absolutely love Wes Anderson movies. Moonrise Kingdom is very special to me, but I think The Royal Tenenbaums has to be my favorite.

    We got free passes to see this last night



    While probably not overly realistic we enjoyed it especially since it was free. Leary hasn't been this good since The Ref. Costner was good and not over the top.

    Nice to see Costner getting a second chance and using it well. Dude was a good actor, who got way too full of himself.

    Just watched TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE:THE MOVIE...for the first time in a long time, and as cool as it was to see David Johanssen/William Hickey get outsmarted by a cat, this...



    Has haunted me since I saw it the very first time. It's a little rushed, but like most good anthology/short stories it makes it's mark and STAYS with you!

    No way dude, he's awful.


    IMHO, he's the anti-character actor. His movies are Kevin Costner doing an impression of Kevin Costner...boring and predictable. Although, he'd make a fantastic Kevin Costner in a Kevin Costner Auto-Documentary.

    Hey Kevin Costner's ego just called with a script! Its called "I SUCK!"

    Prince of Bagdad



    This was a pretty fun adventure movie that was an obvious influence on Disney's Aladdin. And the special effects are impressive considering that it was made in the 1940's.

    True Grit



    I've seen the remake, but I've never seen the original one before. Storywise, both versions are very similar, and like the remake, the girl who plays the character who hires Rooster does a a really good job. The original probably has more humor too. I enjoyed it.

    The High and the Mighty



    And yes, haha, I am on a John Wayne kick. Anyways, this movie is an ensemble cast film about a group of people stuck in a plane that might not be able to land properly. A good example of the character driven films they made in this era.

    Lincoln



    I didn't like this as much as I thought I would. I mean it's well done and acted, but I think the problem was that it didn't cover enough of Lincoln's life, but rather focused on the 13th Amendment. I suppose one can only cover so much in one movie and the passage of that amendment was intense and an important part of Lincoln's presidency so there's that. Maybe, we'll get a prequel.

    Donovan's Reef



    Fun enough movie set in the Pacific Islands, but far from being a major John Ford/John Wayne movie. And Lee Marvin plays a drunken weirdo, haha, which is like him just being himself. :P

    The Call



    I realized that aside from Session 9 and The Machinist, I haven't watched any of Brad Anderson's recent films so I decided to start with this one. A suspenseful little film about Halle Belly playing a 911 operator who's trying to save a young girl after she's being abducted by a creepy serial killer.

    The Lords of Salem



    I thought I was going to loathe this movie, but I didn't. It's far from perfect and won't win any screen writing awards, but I did enjoy it enough. Self indulgent or not, I thought it had a lot of visually impressive scenes.

    nice pull Orph.



    Saw this a few weeks back. Odd bird. Visually...nice. Not AS good as the original(and thus a theme develops). VERY strange. Happens concurrent with the events of the original. So you get a lot of folded in highlights, and all that does is point out that a)that the original, for all your complaints about Snyder, was made by a better artist/craftsman. At times this feels very 'direct-to-dvd' sequel in a lesser-than kinda quality and b)Sullivan Stapleton, while fun, is no Gerard Butler. And oooooh those teeth. Matter of fact, at least this had realistic horrible teeth on people who probably did not have great oral hygiene. Anyway...Eva Green tries SOOOOOOO hard to make this better than it is. But too many repetetive story beats(including the father trying to protect his son...and one of em dies...cue 'i'm so proud of you' music and dramatic pause, like I said, just lesser than.

    Overall...not terrible, just not as good.

    It was a Scarlett Johansson double-feature Saturday for me.

    I liked Under the Skin, actually, but I would not recommend it to everyone. It is deliberately obtuse, and the pacing is extremely slow by today's standards, perhaps by any standards. It looks good, though, and it has a real throwback feel to it, like maybe '70s European type in terms of storytelling. I happen to like that. It is not subtle. People may describe it as such, because it is primarily visual, but the visuals are somewhat spoon-fed. This visual storytelling is the primary interest and strength of the movie. There is little depth here, but the deliberate looseness of thematic exploration and slow pace allow the viewer to explore some interesting possibilities, if they are so inclined. A few films I've seen within the past few years that I might compare to this one would be The American, Amer, and, not surprisingly then, The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears. I'd put Under the Skin well below The American, which was my favorite film of 2010, but maybe only slightly below the other two. I enjoyed them all.

    A couple of non-movie notes from my viewing of Under the Skin:
    - I was surprised how many people were in the theatre. Some did walk out.
    - The people next to me considered walking out. I wish they either would have either done it or stopped talking about it. Shhhhhh.
    - Did I say it was slow? My Bodymedia registered that I slept through the movie. I did not.
    - Turns out there were some people who showed up just because the New York Times said it was great. They were disgusted. I think that's a terrible reason to go see a movie blindly, and, now, maybe so do they.
    - While I did not recognize any of the buildings, I gleaned the location of the movie early on from the soccer/football kits worn by fans. That kind of made me happy.
    - Heck, maybe I did sleep through it, in which case, I enjoyed the strange movie I dreamed.


    Then, I walked across the hall and watched Cap. Extremely well done. Definitely one of the best Marvel movies. 'Nuff said.
