    Will is funny...on TELEVISION. IMO a lot of SNL alumni's impressive talents don't translate well to the big screen. Very few. Belushi and Murphy are the only two I can think of. And maybe Mike Myers, but he's annoying as fuck.

    Polar Express (2004)

    Looked impressive, esp for 2004 but the story was completely idiotic. I had to google it just to see whether perhaps I missed some deep symbolism or I did indeed waste time from my life for that trainwreck of a movie. It is moronic. It would take a lobotomy for me to agree to watch it again.

    I don't mind Will Ferrell but I also just didn't get into Elf. I felt like I supposed to like it a lot more than I did. (I like cute, quirky, funny usually.) Maybe my expectations were too high.

    Brother-in-law brought over Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs for the kids and everyone to watch at Christmas. I liked it - it was one of those more high-strung kids' movies where the tension is pretty high the whole time (for what it is, of course - like Finding Nemo), but it was funny and cute. I love movies that celebrate nerdiness, too.

    Entre les Murs (The Class) 2008

    French film, Palme d Or winner and I can see why, it was awesome. It is about a teacher in a disadvantaged school in Paris. I was impressed with the casting for the VERY multicultural students. They were very convincing. Turns out they were actual students and the movie had come about from improv sessions. I would have never guessed, everything was so seamless. Some excellent directing too. In general, best movie I have seen in a while.

    Catching Fire. I loved the Hunger Games books and was expecting the film to be a dud but this movie was almost as good as the book.

    Saw The Wolf of Wall Street yesterday. Leo was perfect for that role. It was a big drinking, pill popping beautiful mess and I loved it.

    "City Island" with Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies. It was from a couple of years ago. Loved it. Terrific comedy, well done and totally fun. They had great chemistry and it was the first time I watched her and enjoyed her. I've always stayed away from her. She didn't miss a beat. The whole cast was good.

    "Gosford Park", again. It's like a prequel to Downton Abbey. In fact, some of the characters are very close to the one's on DA and written by Julian Fellowes who writes DA.

    I watched it last week and thought exactly the same thing.

    Oblivion (2013)

    Starring the manic midget (Tom Cruise) but he does an excellent job. It is not really about the actors anyway. Beautiful film, script that really kept me guessing and though the ending was a bit clanky the rest was still worth it. I knew absolutely nothing about the film before seeing it and I think that is best. As a sci fi fan, I totally recommend it.

    8/10

    The Heat, Despicable Me 2 and Now You See Me with my parents when I went home (Christmas presents).

    My Mum loved Now You See Me and before we watched it told me and my Dad the ending was great. I think by telling us that she raised my hopes far, far, FAR too much. I love me some Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson, but the film was just a bit flat. So many talented actors, but they were wasted here. The "twist" was easy to spot from twenty paces. It was entertaining enough and I would watch it again, but overall I'd only give it a 6/10.

    Liked the other two, though I prefer the first Despicable Me and The Heat reminded me in parts of a female version of 21 Jump Street (the dick shooting, for instance). It was funny, but I prefer 21 Jump Street.

    "Devil's Pass" on Netflix. It is kind of like a Blair Witch/found footage fictionalized account of some Americans investigating the area where the real-life Dyatlov Pass Incident took place.

    I haven't finished watching it, but it has been pretty good so far. If you haven't read about the Dyatlov Pass Incident, it was an accident in 1959 in the Ural mountains that killed 9 young Russians on a ski trek. After they didn't show up at their destination, search teams were sent out. The bodies were found in all different places, with various/different kinds of wounds. Even now, people can't agree on what killed them or led to their demise, so you have people speculating on paranormal phenomena, weapons tests, etc. Below is an interesting passage from the Wiki article:

    Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot into heavy snow and a temperature of −30 C (−22 F). Although the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue and eyes.[2]

    Anchorman 2. There are some funny lines. Some parts get a little stretched out and worn. It was ok. Wait for DVD.

    For the past week or so I've been having a movie marathon. I watched the Wolverine, I thought it started off great and then fell apart in the second half of the movie. I did enjoy the fight sequence on top of the train.

    I saw The Great Gatsby, boy is that a long a*s movie lol. I enjoyed it for what it was, felt bad for Jay Gatsby at the end and hated Daisy for being a spineless, selfish cow. The cast was a strong one, I was really surprised to see Amitabh Bachan as Wolfsheim and he really played the character perfectly well. Isla Fisher was surprisingly great too.

    Fruitvale Station was another good one, the ending stayed with me. I had mixed feelings about Michael B Jordan's character, I didn't particular like him in some aspects and when he was with his daughter it was endearing. The train station sequence really bought the performances of the cast and left me upset.

    I can vouch Olympus Has Fallen is a pretty f*cking awesome movie. It was a good change to see Gerard Butler play a kicka*s character for once as opposed to the rom/com characters he plays.

    The Family was a big fat disappointment and expected it to be better though. Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Pfeiffer made the movie watchable. The actor who played the son had some substance compared to Dianna Agron.

    Elysium was a f*cking amazing movie, love the concept behind it. Jodie Foster really nailed her part as the cold b*tch Secretary DelaCourt and I loved Matt Damon too. They could have taken the movie a step further and explained in more depth about the idea behind Elysium.

    I saw Gravity over a month ago, I wish I saw it on an IMAX screen. The 3D was quite possibly the best I've seen in a movie in a very long time. It was very immersive. The visuals were breathtaking and beautiful. I really liked Sandra Bullock's character. I thought the film was a rebirth of Ryan Stone's character who is still grieving the loss of her daughter.

    Saw The Hunt (Jagten) a while ago, the gorgeous Mads Mikkelsen is in it. Never watched a foreign movie, thought I give it a go and let me tell you guys, it's a brilliant movie. It shows how the lie once told by the kid to the school teacher, then it unravels and takes a life of its own. Boy, did I feel sorry for his character and the way they ended it was interesting because you still pick up on the uneasiness, tension and uncomfortableness in the atmosphere. Mads gave a incredible performance as the teacher Lucas.

    I want to see Mandela, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle and The Butler. Anyone seen any of them?

    Lovelace with Amanda Seyfried showed up on Netflix recently so I watched it. I thought it was pretty good. It was not as graphic as I expected and I thought the juxtaposition of what people thought her life was like with what it was really like was excellent.

    My father saw Deepthroat at the time it was out and 40 years later, he still believes with all his heart that Linda was totally into it. I don't know why he thinks she wrote the book and went on Donahue to subject herself to criticism if that was true.

    I saw the original movie, and I read about half of her book, "Ordeal". I believe her account, and her behavior was probably like someone suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

    I saw Bourne Legacy yesterday. Loved the cat-and-mouse aspect of the film.

    And Sherlock Holmes - Game of Shadows. Really intricate plot and machinations that could be difficult to follow. Loved Downey. Loved Law. Loved Noomi Rapace. Good actress and I especially love her with that wild dark wavy hair, and in a gypsy outfit.
