    Into the woods, didn't mind it as much as I thought I would. Kids loved it. But drags a bit too long near the ending

    i'm working my way through the oscar nominees.
    so far i've watched the grand budapest hotel (when it first came out and then again over christmas. it's brilliant. go see it if you haven't), birdman (incredible. seriously.), boyhood (linklater's masterpiece. just gorgeous), selma (very good but honestly, just another prestige biopic like there have been so many others).
    next on my list: the imitation game and the theory of everything.

    also watched gone girl over the holidays and i found it underwhelming, to say the least. better than the book but only because fincher is a good director and because the book is fucking awful.

    I liked Boyhood a lot. It felt real and subtle.
    The theory of everything was a waste of time for me. Hate the photographic filters and the story was boring. It needs moar black holes.
    I finished watching Another Year after falling asleep last week (it was late), I hated every single character, but Mary: oh god, she was insufferable.
    Oh, and Masters of the Universe (with a young Courtney Cox), but it was in the background while I was doing something else.

    Irreversible with Monica Belluci and her former man Vincent Cassel. It was very odd, that's all I have to say. The rape scene lasted way too long, and from that point on, it bored me to tears.

    Also distressing, is that it dawned on me, that my ex-husband, looked a lot like Vincent. Granted, Vincent wins this because he's French, and my ex is Hoosier Hillbilly.

    I saw about 30 minutes of Grand Budapest Hotel last night. It was awesome so far. What a great cast. I was watching Jeff Goldblum talk for a full minute before I realized I was looking at Jeff Goldblum. "Did he just throw my cat out the window." Willem deFoe at his creepy best since "Shadow of the Vampire". Harvey Keitel almost unrecognizable (but great).

    The movie gave me a serious flashback to The Darjeeling Limited (and even Moonrise Kingdom). Partly because of the sepia-hued cinematography and snappy dialog. But also because Anderson has basically built a repertory company over the last 5 films or so, with Murray, Norton, Keitel, Ronan, and Swinton always making some kind of appearance. But never as the same type of character.

    Don't forget the scene with the fire extinguisher! Crazy!

    I saw a whole bunch of movies this weekend, but only remember a couple right now. One was "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". I am a sucker for a movie where an office shlub breaks out of his humdrum existence and actually lives life. It also helps if the guy also falls in love with Kristen Wiig. It was an amazing travelogue of exotic places, too - from Greenland, to Iceland, to the Himalayas. I really liked it.

    And Zack Snyder's "Dawn of the Dead" was on. I'll always drop everything I'm doing to watch it whenever it comes on cable. I love Sarah Polley, Michael Kelly, and Ty Burrell, and Ving Rhames was at his Ving Rhamesiest.

    I recorded this and if I ever get a minute, I plan to see it. I didn't even know who was in the cast, a creepy Willem DeFoe makes it more tempting.

    Last movie I saw was the first 20 minutes or so of Whitney on Lifetime but I found it unwatchable and don't plan on trying again.

    Pitch Perfect. It is now one of my favorite movies. Rebel Wilson was hilarious in this and normally, I can't tolerate her.

    I watched this movie four times in one day last week. I wish I was joking, I'm not. I've seen it again since then too. It was totally what got me through my flight home from the US last month (I was way late and hadn't seen it before). It's all about Skylar Astin though - man is beautiful.

    American Sniper. Eh.

    I also saw "Prisoners" this weekend. This is a blacker-than-black story about a father trying to find his abducted daughter. It stars Hugh Jackman and Travel Wipes Howard as the dads who have each had a daughter abducted. Jackman is very good. Howard is actually very good, too. Jake Gyllenhal plays the detective who is trying to find the girls, but also trying to figure out what Jackman is up to. He's great. And I loved Melissa Leo - I didn't recognize her at all at first.

    It's a great movie. But I had a huge argument with my family after watching it. They kept arguing that Hugh Jackman's psycho behaviour should be excused because he's a dad and this horrible thing happened. I think it just shows that just because you're going through something horrible, it's no excuse to turn into a criminal and a fucking psychopath. Toothy was excellent as the cop though I kind of wanted to punch him too for being such a sociopathic weirdo as well.

    I agree with you. In fact, I kind of think that the whole point of Jackman's interlude with Dano was that his raw, unthinking vengeance actually (perversely) perpetuated the suffering of a previous victim. By the way, I missed the beginning where they first meet, so I may have some of the plot/setup wrong, but that was the impression I got.

    no, that's exactly right and the same impression i got. dano was the biggest victim of the movie, and his performance is outstanding. he's such an underrated actor.
