Rewatched "The Princess Bride".

It's still as good as it ever was.


This is one I've never really understood.

I thought it was because I never saw it as a kid, but clearly that wasn't an issue for you.

Let The Right One In

I was watching another movie but didn't like it, and stumbled on a note I'd made a few years ago about something someone had said about it. I stopped about seven minutes into the other movie, and looked up Let The Right One In on rottentomatoes, and saw that it had 98% positive reviews from critics and 90% positive reviews from viewers, so I decided to watch it.

I didn't read the reviews, and didn't know what it was about before I watched it(I try to not even watch movie trailers because I don't want to know anything that happens in movies before I watch them).

I liked it very much.

War Games.

John Spencer (West Wing) has a small part at the beginning as a missile silo operator who refuses to launch, which is what lead to WOPR being connected to the system.

He was even talking about growing pot!

I don't get a chance to see many mobvies in the theater these days, and we don't botrrow movies too often either.

But two (older) movies I have seen recently -and recommend are Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Disney's first animated feature--awesome animation) and Bottle Rocket (Wes Anderson's first film?)
Alexander Supertramp this was uncalled for.

I haven't seen Mr. Fox either.

I've seen Rushmore, Life Aquatic and Royal Tennenbaums, and see that Anderson definitely repeats himself. (it almost looks like parody)
I liked Rushmore very much-it was the first I was exposed to. Bottle Rocket has a lot in common with Rushmore in terms of scenes, blocking and music.
In some ways I'd say the strongest parts of his movies aren't Anderson's directing, but Owen Wilson's writing.

--Well, I assume the parts are from Wilson, as they just sound like they are from him.

I suppose Anderson is much like Tim Burton in that regard--keep making the same movie over and over again.

Night Shift - my eyes had a heart attack!

Moscow On The Hudson - coffee coffee COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE

That one had a very pleasant meandering commentary by Paul Marzusky for the dvd some 16 years after he made the movie.

Batman Begins - I've been surprised that someone made yet another Batman movie.

I hear some people didn't. Ignore them. Go see it.

Also, I'd like to give it it's own thread. In at least 2 weeks, so most people have had the chance to see it.

I don't go into theaters much anymore, so it'll be more than two weeks for me.
Just watched Wargames on Netflix. Pretty good stuff! Holds up pretty well, considering. Totally takes me back to the terrifying nuclear paranoia of the early 80s.

Incidentally I was reading that the computer graphics they projected on big screens couldn't be projected directly because the technology didn't exist yet, so they had the graphics display on a high-resolution CRT, then shot the images on film, one frame at a time, one colour at a time, then developed the film and used rear-projection.

Apparently the process took one minute per frame of film. Considering how much it's used in the movie, that must've taken for fuckin' EVAR.

Yeah, they were talking about that on the dvd commentary. What's really wild is that they had to rewind and start over at the same spot when they shot different camera angles so the images on the screens would line up in the different takes.

I just finished watching Everybody's Fine. For some reason i thought it was going to be a comedy. It's not. Still a good flick, though.

Yesterday, spent a few hours watching hulu.

Saw Scorched, Escanaba in da Moonlight, and Good Dick.

All three were pretty enjoyable.

Not really, I was hoping for good, however the reviews said it sucked. I suspect most reviewers aren't particularly fond of action movies though.
