    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.
    Doing the same
    Both imitation Game and Theory were fantastic. Watched with the kids, we all loved Imitation Game the most but both give oscar to Eric.
    Grand hotel was delightfully weird, American Sniper -> probably read too much about Chris Kyle.

    Tonight either birdman or boyhood. I also bought Wild but am not looking forward to it...
    Gone girl, I actually like the book better and made Nick a lot more suspicious then the movie.

    Saw Birdman last night.

    Mixed review. I like the way it's shot and I loved the jazz soundtrack. It made it feel... dangerous. Keaton gives a good performance. Emma stone seduces you. I didn't care for Ed Norton's performance. The story is .... weird ... that's not a bad thing but normally I can find the theme, read the symbolism, maybe I need more time to reflect. I hope it's a story about profound depression and not just how it hurts to be a has been movie star. The way it is shot is cool but makes the movie feel ponderous at times. You can see the climax coming but it's still moving when it happens. The ending just had me all wtf?

    All about my mother. The story was interesting and I liked the supporting performances, but not the lead actress.

    August:Osage County. Liked it, except for the way it ended. The "eat your fish" scene is reason enough to watch it.

    "A Birder's Guide to Everything" - just a cute little coming-of-age movie that was on NetFlix. The star was Kodi Smit-McPhee, one of the stars of the movie that scarred me for life (The Road). Except, he's now grown up. He plays a high-school student who is dealing with the recent loss of his mother, and the fact that his dad (James Legros) is marrying the hospice nurse. Very understated performance by McPhee. I also loved the actress that tags along with them (Katie Chang) on a road trip for what they think might be a living fossil (labrador duck). And Ben Freaking Kingsley is in here, too playing a somewhat duplicit

    I watched that last night too! Reading that I'm shocked that so many of the antics in the movie were true!

    The other movie I watched recently was Strait Jacket with Joan Crawford. The wig made the whole movie, I loved it.

    I can't remember what happened at the end, but I remember it was depressing. I remember the eat your fish scene, lol.

    The last movie I saw was Prisoners. It was suspenseful, wonderfully creepy, had me guessing the whole time. Loved the ending,

    We were just talking about that one a couple of pages back. Did you have the same reaction?

    Oh, I must've gleaned right over that. I agree with you, I felt really sorry for Alex. First Hugh was burning/freezing him out with the hot and cold water, then Hugh started praying to God. I thought Hugh was not only praying to find his daughter, but praying to hold onto his sanity.

    I also felt sorry for Hugh sealed up in the pit by the homicidal aunt. So I was really glad when Jake Gyllenhal heard that whistle.

    Yeah, even if Hugh's character eventually ended up in a jail cell (which was strongly implied when Jake was talking with him earlier), it would still be better than that ice cold, dark pit. Not to mention, he would have visits from his family. By the way, in real life, even though he thrashed that guy within an inch of his life, I'm not sure what jury would throw him in prison for it.

    Yeah, I think Jake was gonna arrest him, but that's a preferable alternative to the pit. And as soon as Jake got him out, he'd know his daughter was alive.

    By the way, this site is moving so slow today, every function takes 5 minutes and my window closed twice.

    I don't think it's just this site. I've noticed things on multiple sites and from both home and work. It almost look like there is a DoS attack going on all over the place.

    Watched The Imitation Game. Loved it. Benedict Cumberbatch may be freaky-looking but bitch can act. Even my husband was all "Who's cutting onions in here?" by the end. I can't believe his story isn't taught more widely, I'd never really learned the details of his story before, just the trivia byte version: that he was the "Father of computers" and broke the Enigma machine.
