    The Expendables 2

    Huge fun. Really perfect for what it is. Also there is a Jason Statham fighting scene with knives that got me all hot and bothered.

    8/10
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    I saw Brave today with my kids. We all loved it, though the little one was a bit scared at times.

    We Bought a Zoo. Great family movie, a bit predictable but very touching. Based on a true story. Wish we could visit the Zoo but it's across the pond in England. I barely recognized Matt Damon.

    Harold and Maude. Loved it.

    Hannah and her Sisters. I'm trying to catch most of Woody Allen's movies. I liked this one.

    Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The character of Vicky made me want to punch her in the face. Javier Bardem is the sex and though I don't usually like Penelope Cruz I loved her in this movie.

    Hope Springs - went with 3 generations of women from my family. We all loved it but the sex scenes were a little uncomfortable for the teens. LOL

    God Bless America. Pretty good, and made some good points on how pop culture has destroyed a lot of our basic thinking abilities.

    Nice! It think my personal favourite movie of his has to be Crimes and Misdemeanors tied with Manhattan but Hannah and her Sisters definitely rates pretty high up on my list too. A bit of trivia, Woody Allen wanted Jack Nicholson for the part that ended up going to Michael Caine but Jack wanted to get paid way more than Allen could afford. I also think that this started Allen's thing of always having at least one Brit actor in his movies but that might just be a coincidence.

    Haven't watched Vicky Christina Barcelona, he's so prolific it's hard to catch up, lol.

    No movies lately but I'm watching The Borgias on TV and it's pretty cool.

    I think what I'm liking the most about his movies so far is that he doesn't feel the need to show all the secrets and have some kind of resolution to them. Secrets remain secret and people go about their lives. At least in Hannah and VCB. I'm excited for Annie Hall.

    Crimes and Misdemeanors is one of my favorite movies. Also still get a kick out of Manhattan Murder Mystery, Annie Hall, Bullets Over Broadway, and The Purple Rose of Cairo. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is a lot of fun!

    VCB was good just for the presence of Javier Bardem. Goddamn. Utterly charmed by Midnight in Paris.

    It's so strange how Woody can be so wildly hit and miss these last couple of decades. He can still do good work occasionally but it's mixed in with utter shit like Shadows and Fog, The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, Celebrity, Everyone Says I Love You, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and most especially, because I was SO looking forward to it, Scoop.

    ^ Well, he's directed 48 movies, there are bound to be some stinkers there too.

    I wasn't crazy about Midnight in Paris. I thought it was just ok. Not a crappy film but just ok. But yeah, his comedies you mention are beyond funny. I nearly died laughing in Manhattan Murder Mystery, same with Bullets over Broadway.

    I agree with your list of rather bad Woody Allen films and I would also add Alice (although it wasn't in the past two decades) and to some extent Casssandra's Dream (the one where Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrel play brothers). Ok, Cassandra's Dream wasn't terrible but I saw it after seeing Match Point and Match Point blew me away as a sort of more focussed and even darker take on Crimes and Misdemeanors so Cassandra's Dream kinda paled in comparison.

    I agree every prolific director inevitably has some stinkers under their belts but I'm talking about how wildly Woody swings between the extremes of good and bad films. Celebrity and everything after was absolute dreck until Match Point came along to blow us away.

    Now that you mention it, I was greatly moved by Cassandra's Dream. I thought it was excellent, especially the acting by Colin and Ewan.

    I kind of agree with you about Midnight in Paris. It was mildly entertaining, so I was more charmed by the lushly beautiful depiction of Paris.

    Ironman 2 - pretty good not nearly as good as the 1st one

    Tenebrae - one of Dario Argento's most cohesive movies. It was very good, but I like Profondo Rosso and Suspiria more.

    Inside (2007)- French horror. I've seen it twice now. I really liked it the first time I saw it, not so much the second time around.

    I saw The Dark Knight Rises last week and The Bourne Legacy yesterday. I would be curious what they'll do with the next Bourne film, but Rachel Weisz was sort of grating. She and Jeremy Renner had zero chemistry. I don't think every action movie has to have a raging love affair, but I think there should be some tension of some sort. There were a couple of other things with the plot that didn't sit right with me, but overall it was good.

    Cadillac Records. This is a really good movie! Adrian Brody was hot in it. Loved Cedric the Entertainer as Willie Dixon and Beyonce as Etta James.
    Sasha and *DIVA! like this.
