    american hustle. i thought it was a really fun movie, great ensemble piece, great casting choices, fantastic costumes and decor and music. yes, the story has a ton of holes in it but you don't really notice it while you're watching the movie because it's so much fun. it's only after when you think back to it that you realise it's basically a movie about a whole lot of nothing but unlike 'the big lebowski' where that was the point, with this movie you get the feeling that they sort of want to distract you with everything else so you don't think too much about the actual story and realise just how preposterous it is.

    nymphomaniac, part 1. totally absurd premise but strangely entertaining and has some really funny moments even though there are moments where you kind of shake your head at the screen and wonder, wtf is this? i kind of get the sense that lars von trier is sort of trolling everyone with this movie because it really is absurd at times. maybe part 2 will provide the answer to that but somehow i doubt it. i really think this entire film is a sort of weird experiment for him. i'm not getting the feminist outrage at all - they had a field day with it on jezebel and i think as usual the problem with the jezzies is that as usual, they missed the humour in this. or the fact that it's not exploitative because even if it is about a chick telling a guy her story of being a nymphomaniac, the whole thing is also about how she has all this sex and doesn't feel anything, and when you watch all that sex on screen, you don't feel anything either because, well that's the whole point. it's not erotic or a turn on at all.

    She-Devil: with Roseanne and Meryl Streep: hasn't aged well. Meryl is awful in this - mugging, overacting horribly, playing to the cheap seats in the back. And Roseanne was as wooden as Meryl was hammy. She was better in The Devil Wears Prada and It's Complicated, but clearly, comedy is not her first love.

    30 Years to Life: Indie film about a group of black 20-30 something friends in New York dealing with life and love. Nothing new, but some funny moments, especially when one of the protagonists dates a guy with six toes one his right foot - it gave me the giggles. Tracy Morgan has a role in it as a - wait for it - stand-up comedian.

    ^ I don't like She-Devil, either. Death Becomes Her came out a few years later, and I think it's still awesome - Meryl especially. I will stop anything I'm doing to watch it.

    Melancholia. Can't say I didn't like it, though I'm not quite sure I understand it. Visually it was breathtaking, and every performance was superb. The last scene was just terrifying and beautiful. Beautifully terrifying? Terrifyingly beautiful? Either way, I really liked the movie.

    12 Years A Slave - wow what an amazing and powerful movie this is.

    I don't think this is a movie that I will soon forget. It is a movie that should be required viewing by all.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender & Lupita Nyong'o were all just absolutely fantastic in their roles.

    Backwoods. Gary Oldman is awesome as ever but I was more confused than entertained.

    The Ice Storm. Really enjoyed this one.

    Muppets Most Wanted. It was okay. Not as good as the last one.

    First, I want to say that I would probably watch anything with Charlotte Gainsbourg in it. I know she is not beautiful, but I find her really compelling and basically fell in love with her in The Science of Sleep. Also, I think Von Trier is one a very select number of people who are not only not making formulaic movies, but also are helping expand the idea of presenting a story.

    Yeah, even if you hate Von trier movies you have to admit he won't leave anyone indifferent.

    I loved 'melancholia', it's possibly the most beautiful and heartbreaking depiction of depression, ever.

    See, at first I thought it was depression, but the more I watched the more I leaned towards the idea of just...foreboding, I guess would be the best word? Or maybe internal unrest? KD's character KNEW something was wrong, she had this sense of dread, but had no idea why. She only seemed at peace when she was outside looking up at the sky, when she was facing what was causing her fear without even realizing it. And once it was confirmed what it was, she was just, like, "OK, so that's what it was. Got it" and reached a sort of emotional equilibrium.

    Just my take, I'm crap at interpreting arty movies. At any rate, I really really liked it and totally didn't expect to.

    Meryl mugs too much in comedy. When subtle responses are required, she bugs her eyes and does overexaggerated body reactions, like a cartoon.

    I have an obsession with apocalyptic movies. On The Beach, Threads, The Day After, 2012, etc...This one was different. I was expecting lots of F/X and shit. It was like that 4:44 movie with Willem Dafoe, talky but interesting.

    For what it's worth, Viggo skinny dips in the film. It's probably the most al fresco Viggo since "Eastern Promises".

    For me, this was an absolutely traumatizing film. Like go-straight-to-therapy traumatizing.

    Dallas Buyers' Club

    I thought it was very good. Matthey McConaughey and Jared Leto definitely deserved those Oscars. My only gripe was that the bits with Jennifer Garner were a little boring.
