    I read where he was considered one of the more stylish directors in H'wood, but I didn't see any of that here. I've never seen Pan's Labyrinth. It's on my movie bucket list now.


    Drop Dead Gorgeous:
    This is a twisted-ass satire on contestants in a local beauty pageant. With Kirsten Dunst and Kirstie Alley. Kind of uneven, but some really funny scenes. Brittany Murphy was in this too. I forgot what a sweet presence she could be in a movie.

    It has been a long time since I've seen it, but Pan's Labyrinth is set during the Spanish civil war, I think. It is really fascinating because the girl has a murderous, cruel stepfather, and the mom is too sickly to defend her or even herself. As a result, it becomes difficult to tell whether the girl's new-found world is real, or something she has conjured up to escape the stress of her reality. Great story; great special effects; really hideous monsters (human and fantasy). For me, it also didn't hurt at all that it had two Spanish actresses that I love - Maribel Verdu and Ariadna Gil.

    I'm halfway through West of Mephis but had to take a break because its not only plodding along but a little over sensationalized and for some reason I wasn't expecting it to be quite so current affair with the zooming in on the corpses and what have you.

    Lars and the Real Girl .... during the beginning, I was like, what in the cray-cray .... but this movie touched me so much. I've only ever seen Ryan Gosling in Drive and never got the big deal, but then on a whim, I watched The Notebook for the first time a few weeks ago and was like DAMN. Then I started watching a random few of his movies and got to this one. The plot is this kinda odd man (who clearly has Asperger's) from a small town suddenly gets a girlfriend, but she arrives in a box (she's one of those Real Girl sex dolls, but he doesn't use her for sex at all). The way his worried brother, loving sister-in-law and the rest of the town react to this girlfriend (he talks to her, insists she's treated like a lady, rolls her around in a wheelchair, etc) is amazing. I *really* liked it a lot and would recommend it. I was a little teary-eyed during a couple of parts, but Gosling is clearly a Method actor (I don't know anything about him) and he pulls off this role in such a raw, tender way. I have a friend with a son who has Asperger's (high functioning ... he is one of the most sweetest kids I know and he's like a walking encyclopedia .... my son has a kind of big brother crush on him) and I saw SOOO many traits in Gosling's character that my friend's son has too. Two thumbs up.

    Saw "Into The Woods" last night (New Year's Eve) and I LOVED it. I didn't know what to expect and I totally wasn't expecting what I got, but the performances were outstanding (I love Streep in anything), the music is by Sondheim, and it was all around a terrific "feel good" movie. Highly recommend.

    We watched Edge of Tomorrow -- now known as Live, Die, Repeat. I don't like Tom Cruise, but I really enjoyed this movie and enjoyed him in it. Emily Blunt is really good. It's a fun action movie.

    I saw Jack Reacher a few weeks ago and liked that too. Tom was totally Tom in that movie, but I did enjoy the story. I think there is something wrong with me.

    Up in the Air. Good movie. I really like Anna Kendrick's performance. And George was watchable.

    Layoff protocols in America are so devastating to the laid off. Wish corporate America would get a clue. This coming from someone who has been laid off 5 times.

    6 Days & 7 Nights: A lot better than I expected. Harrison Ford has always been douchey to me in most of his non-Han Solo roles, but he and Anne Heche were pretty decent in this.

    The Divide: Post-apocalyptic indie film about a group of nuclear war survivors holed up in the bomb shelter of a NYC high-rise. Can't turn it off. Milo Ventimiglia, Courtney Vance and Michael Biehn.

    Six Degrees of Separation: Fuck Will Smith, it's Stockard Channing who carries this movie from beginning to end. I thought Will Smith's performance was shallow.

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: I don't think I can ever get tired of this movie. I hadn't seen it in a while, so it was good to watch it again after so many years. The last time I saw it was on lame-ass LOGO, with all the cuss words cut out.

    Breakfast on Pluto: The first time I saw it from beginning to end. A coming of age story about a gay/transgendered orphan living in Ireland. The acting was great, but it was pretty much another indie gay-themed movie overloaded with quirky characters.

    Small Time: A little seen indie flick with Chris Meloni and Bridget Monihyan about a divorced used-car salesman and his relationship with his son in late 80s California. I wanted to see it because my boo Meloni was in it, but it was a really good movie.

    Ahem, bitter. You best back up off my Chris Meloni. I've loved him since he played a psycho in Oz.

    I watched rock of ages. Really torn on this one. I didn't realize it's a musical, and how they got all these big names to participate in this crapfest. But all the songs were from the 80s so I sang along the whole time, which was its only redeeming value.

    Divergent. I liked it, they did a good job of staying true to the book and I shockingly thought that dumb ass Shailene was good.

    Insomnia - Al Pacino plays a tainted detective (under investigation by IAD) who goes to Alaska with his partner to investigate the murder of a high school student. He already has tensions with his partner, who may testify against him in exchange for immunity. He also cannot get to sleep because it's the time of year where there is 24 hours of daylight. At some point, he mistakenly shoots his partner while they are chasing the suspect through dense fog. He knows that nobody will believe it's an accident, so he tampers with evidence. But the suspect sees him do it. What follows is a cat and mouse game between two guys. One of the things I liked about the film is that I had almost no idea what would happen from one moment to the next.

    Hilary Swank is in the movie as a young Alaskan detective. She is great in her role and looks great, too. Loved her. Robin Williams also stars in the other key role. Another actress I love, Maura Tierney, is also in it in a small role.
