    We've watched a few things lately.

    I watched both Ocean's 12 and Ocean's 13, hadn't seen either one of them. Both were pretty good in their own right. I actually preferred 13 better even though I loved the European scenery in 12, it was gorgeous. Maybe I liked 13 better because there was no Julia Roberts, I just can't stand that woman.

    We watched Smiley Face with some friends. I seriously laughed out loud through the whole damn thing, but if you don't like dry humor, its not for you. And please, I know that it was over the top, but don't do the whole counting on your fingers thing about how high people don't act like that (as done by one of my friends). No one cares. The movie was funny though. Anna Faris was great and John Krasinski, Adam Brody, and Danny Masterson all fit their roles well, especially John. The ending kind of sucked, kind of preachy, but still the movie was hilarious. I was expecting a lot less.

    Saw Juno tonight.....

    Nicely quirky, in the rich vein of Little Miss Sunshine, and will suffer from the same overrated tag it got, but I loved it - the pacing and acting was great, Im sure it will win best screenplay at the oscars (but thats it)
    I'm using a lot of oxygen and such I think it's good use of oxygen myself, but of course, I'm a little prejudiced on the matter.

    Cool

    The Fury, by Brian De Palma, with Kirk Douglas and John Cassavetes (1978) => Interesting paranormal thriller

    Maybe these movies just lose something in translation, but from my perspective they're all horribly paced, uneven and make no fucking sense. How it won any awards is beyond me.
    The Host was a good movie, it was a lot of fun, and the reason it's got a great reputation is because it is different from other monster movies: for one, it does away with the "Jaws" trend of building up tension before finally revealing the monster, by revealing it straight away (in a hilarious scene btw). Also instead of focusing on a bunch of good-looking, smart tough people who're out to kill the thing and become heroes, it focuses on a bunch of losers, who just want to find that girl, and who remain losers at the end. Anyway, even if you didn't like this one, I suggest you try the director's previous film, Memories Of Murder, a truly beautiful film.

    I'll never rent it but I'll probably buy it, and end up liking it. Sorry, I like the actors, it looks really good and has great reviews.

    It isn't a movie for everyone, but if you're capable of understanding it, it's quite incredible. A very deep, thoughtful movie about a very complicated subject.

    My personnal favorite is 12, but I think all 3 movies are quite bad.

    Again, I think it's just the cultural translation gone wrong. I didnt care about any of the characters, they seemed utterly random for no apparent reason. Oh no, one of the daughters is an olympic archer that hesitates. I mean.. what the hell? Who cares! The others were some retard, his annoyed brother and their father.

    Without that tension building there's just some CG thing running around eating people. It's not terribly threatening from a psychological point of view, which is 3/4 of the impact of a villain. Secondly, because the characters (at least in translation) seemed random, i couldnt identify with anything they cared about or experienced because they didn't make any sense from one minute to the next.

    just.. blech.

    Watching TCM (Turner Classic Movies) and they are showcasing old Oscar winners: On Golden Pond (2nd time in 2 months), Steel Magnolias and now The Big Chill (one of my faves). Absence of Malice with Paul Newman/Sally Field next.

    I watched The Prestige last night. It was pretty good.

    Cool

    Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium => the trailers made it look like a grotesque Charlie And the Chocolate Factory rip-off. Thankfully, it's a lot better than Tim Burton's horrendous film. It's not one of the greatest movies of the year, but it's sweet and enjoyable, and I imagine kids should love it. The script also has a few very good lines (Dustin Hoffman's speech about death in particular) and while Natalie Portman is an insufferable conceited little hypocrite in real life, she's always a sweet joy to watch on screen.

    Lust, Caution => A very good WWII spy drama/thriller, comparable in a way to Paul Verhoeven's Black Book, but deeper. I think this is probably Ang Lee's best film (yes, much more than Brokeback, Brokeback felt long, but this one, though longer, didn't). As for the sex/nudity, sure it's extremely realistic, but it really as big a deal as everyone makes it to be. Oh, and that first sex scene? It's hilarious.

    Charlie Wilson's War => A fine piece of history. Very entertaining and informative. In a rare case of reality surpassing fiction however, while Tom Hanks looks better than the real Charlie Wilson, the real Joanne Herring et the time seemed hotter than Julia Roberts in the movie.

    Fatal Attraction ... I never get tired of this movie! It's great!

    Premonition ... This was so bad I couldn't make it through to the end and had to go to bed because I was falling asleep in my chair.
