    This movie is so overrated! I lost interest half way through the movie, and the lead actress Rosamund Pike - was just dull.

    I watched it to the other night. I read what others wrote in the TV section. Everyone here had similar sentiments, so I see it just wasn't me. Maybe their marriage was described a bit better in the book because I just didn't get "them" in the film.

    Remember the movie Presumed Innocent with Harrison Ford and Greta Scacchi? I totally thought they copied the scene where the wife describes what happened, also done in voice over.

    And then I watched a good FIVE whole minutes of The Tourist with Depp and Angelina. I kept shaking my head in disbelief. Venice looked beautiful of course, but those two looked like they were hoping the director would call Lunch!

    City of Ember: Post-apopalyptic drama in the vein of The Hunger Games. Two plucky teens stumble upon information that will save their underground city, which was created after some sort of global catastrophe. Bill Murray, of all people, portrayed the mayor. It didn't do so well at the box office, so no sequels.

    Divergent: Better than I expected. I even tolerated Ashley Judd's presence in the film. And Theo James is beautiful. Ansel Elgort...is not. Shalene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz are in it as well.

    Empire of the Sun: Based on J.G. Ballard's autobio about the life of a British colonial boy, born and raised in Shanghai, and his formative years in a Japanese POW camp. I love this movie and see something different in it every time I watch it. I knew Christian Bale would become a star - his performance was awesome in this. One of my favorite Spielberg films.

    Doktor Zhivago: I adore Julie Christie and never tire of watching her in anything. I can even ignore the mainly British cast, acting more like characters from a Jane Austen novels than Russian bourgeoisie.

    Titanic: Yes, I know. The film does suck - at least until the ship hits the iceberg. I despise Billy Zane in this; he's like Snidely Whiplash, and his performance does not age well. The scene where he shoots at Jack and Rose is completely ridiculous and has NO BUSINESS in this film. The ship's final moments are truly spectacular, though.

    Watched The interview last night. Was free. I actually liked it because I'm all for cheesy shit. Also the wine probably helped.

    Amadeus. I never saw it in the 80's when it came out. It was interesting.

    I like City of Ember. Awesome sets (I think the whole city is supposed to be underground). There is also a real steampunk look to the movie because of all the complicated machinery that makes things work there. Plus -- Bill Murray.

    Empire of the Sun - love that one, too. I'm still morbidly fascinated by movies and stories that depict Japan rampaging through all the cities and countries it invaded. Bale was great. If I remember correctly, when he sees his parents, he doesn't even recognize them. Really poignant movie.

    Titanic - If this is on cable, I always watch if I think it's close to the scene where Jack does Rose's portrait.

    You have to see The White Countess with Natasha Richardson and Ralph Fiennes about Euro expats living in Shanghai during the same period. It's a bit slow, but Fiennes is so good in it.

    It's usually filler for me - just something to have on if I'm reading or on the computer. But I needed a disaster movie fix.

    Blue Jasmine: Miss Blanchett was superb in this. The entire cast was. I liked how no one was totally right or totally wrong in this. Torn about liking this since Woody is a pedo.

    Elysium: Muddled mess of a movie with some interesting moments. Matt Damon looked buff but haggard, and Jodie Foster's mutant accent did things to my inner ear. Great special effects though.

    Fast Food Nation: I'm thinking twice about my next Whopper or Big Mac....

    I think Billy Zane's character was the antagonist against all that was sweet and true and he also represented all the know-it-all rich snobs who thought their shit didn't stink. But yeah...he was totally Snidley Whiplash! I hated his man servant, Lovejoy, even more.

    The guy who played Lovejoy was also in the 1979 version of the disaster, SOS Titanic. He portrayed a schoolteacher.

    Saw Into the Woods tonight. I wanted to love it and did find it very theatrical but J Depp and MS were horrid. The humor was so hit or miss that their attempt at humor with the two princes felt ridiculous. I wasn't totally prepared to discuss fidelity issues with my 4 and 6 year old boys nor did I want to explain what the step mother did to her daughters' feet.

    I finally saw Les Mis for the first time. Loved HJ and, dammit, Ann what's her face was really good. Russel Crow took my right out of it. He was out of his league.

    ^^^Sometimes I think Meryl's ego gets in the way and she takes on roles she's not always right for.

    Cloud Atlas: I am tempted to watch this again, but I think I would still be right; this film makes no sense.

    Pacific Rim: Other than having the hotness that is Idris Elba, it was a big noisy movie. Can't believe that the same guy who directed the superb Mimic made this CGI-infested claptrap.

    I watched Notes on a Scandal again last night, one of my favorites with Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench & Bill Nighy who are all amazing in this.

    That was Guillermo Del Toro, and I was just as disappointed as you that he was behind this. Pan's Labyrinth was amazing. I also loved all the Hellboy movies - amazing sets, costumes and special effects. And Selma Blair looks so hot!
