    Saw Interview with the Vampire for the first time. Homo-erotic violence. Eh. At least no one sparkled I guess. Kirsten D was fantastic for a child actor. BP was as wooden as ever. Antonio B was awful. Tom Cruise was ok at times and ridiculous at others. I still don't get why Louis went to San Francisco to be interviewed.

    The Blind Side. I hate hate hate football but boy do I love this movie. It somehow manages to be sweet without being sappy. I`m glad Sandy won an Oscar for this.

    I saw so many movies over the holidays it's going to take a while to get everything sorted out, but:

    Mission Impossible 4 - I loved it. It was even better than 3, which I really liked. For Josh ("Sawyer" from "Lost") Holloway fans, there is a pretty cool cameo early on with him.

    Paul Patton was good. I couldn't take my eyes off of her - especially in the scene at the Mumbai party. Her cat-and-mouse game with Anil Kapoor was really funny.

    Jeremy Renner was great. His reactions and the complexity of his character worked really well.

    Simon Pegg was funny, as usual.

    Tom Cruise was fine.

    Lots of great action scenes - the prison escape at the beginning (not a spoiler). Great chase scene in a blinding sand storm. All of the action at the Dubai high-rise. And ironically, there was a scene in the auto-park building in Dubai that I had created a post about in the tech area here.

    Kind of an interesting, ambiguous ending, having to do with his wife. Not sure what to make of that.

    adventureland.
    on the flight from santiago to new york. i was kind of conked out on a xanax that i followed up with a sleeping pill so i don't remember much of it. kristen stewart was her usual taciturn self. i want to do nasty things to jesse eisenberg. and ryan reynolds' alleged hotness is a mystery to me. he just looks beefy and dumb to me.

    drive.
    great movie. i still don't think ryan gosling (or baby goose, as my brothers have taken to calling him) is hot at all but he's a great actor. loved the 80s synth pop soundtrack, and visually the film is incredible. cold and stylish as hell, kinda like the music. even the ultra-violence is aesthetic and kinda glacial in an art gallery kind of way. very cool. and i'm still laughing at the fact that they named a character standard.

    melancholia.
    loved it. kiki and gainsbourg are great, as are all the actors. great story. great film. makes you wonder why von trier hasn't made a movie about the end of the world before.

    gentlemen broncos.
    should have been better but still has its moments. the sci-fi scenes are so bad they're awesome (the deer!) and jemaine clement is just plain awesome as dr. ronald chevalier.

    get carter.
    the original michael caine movie, not the embarrassing remake. for about the 4th time but my little brother really wanted to see it. classic. god i love michael caine.

    one day.
    watched this on the plane from new york to santiago. no pills this time. was feeling all emotional after saying goodbye to my family and friends earlier that morning so i cried like a baby despite being aware of the film's many shortcomings, which makes it all the more annoying. also, i hate crying on planes because the people next to you probably think you're nuts.
    that said, i really like anne hathaway and jim sturgess, even if hathaway's accent was terrible.

    Entertainment Weekly gushed over the high rise scenes and said they were some of the best ever done (paraphrasing). It was enough of a glowing review that I might just have to go see it even if it means enduring Tiny Tom. Plus Jeremy Renner seems like a guy we should see more of in films. Cannot WAIT to see him as Hawkeye in The Avengers.

    The movie made me a believer in Renner. He got a chance to cover all the bases. Clearly, believably athletic. Great facial reactions, especially in his interactions with Simon Pegg. Very good comic sense - shown to good effect in the scenes with the magnetic suit.

    ^ Yeah, I didn't notice him much in Thor the first time I watched it. The second time I wondered how I could have overlooked someone so badass.

    Sherlock Holmes 2. Loved it. I could watch RDJ and Jude Law together all day.

    The Darkest Hour. OMG, legendarily bad. A friend and I went to see in on a lark and we were the only two people in the theater, so we ran a running commentary a la Mystery Science Theater. So bad it's almost a fun watch.

    Crazy Stupid Love - it was much better than i thought it would be. I've never found Ryan Gosling that attractive, but i have to admit he does look pretty smoking hot in this movie. Liked the twist at the end too!

    Ive probably repeated myself a million times by now but I couldnt stomach the book or the movie. To me the only good thing about the book was the interactions between Lestat and Louis. I cant stand Lestat, book or movie. Louis was a decent enough character and they were an odd couple. Once it became Louis and Claudia it got horrible. Then Lestat came back and then I stopped reading. I think I lost my page. But I tried to watch the movie, never finished. Dont think I ever will either. Wait, I just looked it up on IMDB. Christian Slater? Thandie Newton? Why didnt I notice these people before? Might have to watch it again and finish it this time.

    Saw this with the family on New Years. It was quite a surprising treat. I was surprised at how good it was. Im going to have to track down a copy of the original because many have said that its better.

    Saw "The Descendants" a few days ago. It was excellent. It has gorgeous scenery, soundtrack and oh, the acting! Not much of a George Clooney fan before but he was splendid in this film as was the elder daughter. The screenplay held closely to the book, which I had read and recommend highly. A complex, intriguing story told with beauty and grace.

    I just watched the original version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I really enjoyed it. I haven't read the books and don't think I will. It's not really something I would read but it makes for a very good movie. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was chilling, and intense, and I really liked the actress, Noomi Rapace.

    I haven't seen the American remake yet. Not sure if I want to. Has anyone seen both the original and the American version? Or just the American version? What'd you guys think?
