Just got the 50th Anniversary James Bond boxset so I've been on a Bond marathon all day. Presently watching The World Is Not Enough. Previously: Moonraker.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Quite good though not great.
Good horror film. I would give it a "B+"
It's a very controversial film in Poland, because it tells a (loosely based on the story of a Jedwabne village) story of Poles killing their jewish neghbouts during ww2.
Silver Linings Playbook is the Best Movie of the Year so far for me! There was comedy and drama. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence both gave great performances. I've seen Lincoln, The Hobbit, etc. but I'm hoping to see Silver Linings Playbook get nominated and win Best Picture for the Academy Award.
I fell in love with Bradley Cooper with this film. I never understood the hype around his looks before. I definitely felt really attracted to him in this role. I think I like him better with a shaved head and a beard.
Marie Antoinette of a 2005
"Ergonomics" is an idea designers use to brand crap for sale.
In reality, as one designer admits, sales are made "because it's all about wanting to have new things."
Barfy subject matter. But a good movie.
Cube...a classic Sci-Fi movie that I absolutely love. Ignore the mess up of a sequel and prequel.
District 9 - utterly EXCELLENT film. I cannot recommend it enough, Then again, it's impossible to expect anything else from Peter Jackson.
Matthew Barney: No Restraint (2006).
A disarming portrait of the well-funded artist.
We recently saw "Bad Teacher" with Cameron Diaz, that bitch is great! Don't expect an epic here, but it is well acted, funny and she looks fantastic, some of her outfits and shoes are awesome. And Justin Timberlake is in it too and he is such a cutie as a geek. If you have never seen "Very Bad Things" I highly recommend that one too, she is amazing in it, but the whole cast is fantastic.
life of pi
beautiful movie. during the first 20 or so minutes, they talk a lot about religion and god. so i was afraid the story would be hard for me to relate to as a hardcore atheist. but in the end, the whole religious aspect was wrapped up in a way that really did speak to me.
I'm a fan of the original and enjoyed the remake.
Entertaining as many of Phantasm 2's (1988) shiny parts are, they still don't make the movie as a whole better than average.
Polanski's Repulsion (1965) hasn't seemed to age well to the point that it seems inaccurate to even call it horror any more. It's a rather tedious etiology of psychic breakdown.
Margaret Rutherford is great fun as Miss Marple in Murder Most Foul (1964); if the plot matched the splendor of her character, the movie would be a smash.
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Not as good as "Inglorious Bastards" but props to QT for making nearly 3 hr films that don't feel interminable. Di Caprio was robbed of an Oscar nom, IMHO.
SkyFall Best Bond Ever
Jakob der Lügner
Will the cursed and disfigured Rupa find love? Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram: Love Sublime (1978).
Also, someone had posted an awards screener of Django Unchained in its entirety on youtube, so I watched it. Shallow, forgettable and cartoony.
Carry On Cabby
Good but not a classic.
One moment gave me goose bumps.
Lolita (the original version)
The Little Foxes
Bruce La Bruce's movies' 'edgy' pretexts almost always seem merely prurient to me.
More of that, The Raspberry Reich (2004).
Les Mis. I was indeed miserable through the whole movie. It sucked. My humble opinion.
This last weekend we watched "Taken 2". It was not my choice, I thought the first one was good but I'm not much for sequels. Well to my amazement, it was freaking great, so much so that it kept me a the edge of my seat, at one point my partner even told me to relax a bit, but I could not. They set up the story quite well and quickly, the action began and it was great, Liam Neeson was great in it and sexy, was produced by Luc Beeson and the best part it was around 90 minutes. Go see it.
Life of Pi - Great movie! beautiful cinematography, thought provoking.
Carrie - still sad on so many levels
Extraordinarily sorrowful, The Deer Hunter (1978).
Private Romeo. I appreciate the attempt to adapt it to a different setting but I feel, if they were gonna go for a military theme... it would have worked better if set during an actual war.
Still, cute boys espousing Shakespeare is never really a bad thing.
Les Miserables - epic and powerful stuff. Brave film making. Anne Hathaway's rendition of 'I Dreamed A Dream' will go down history. Amazing!
