Depends on the maturity level of the 12 year old.

[spoiler]The movie is about a girl that pretends to be a harlot as an experiment and takes it to a high level[/spoiler]

There's more to it than that, but you get the idea. It's not a comedy like Superbad or some of the other teen comedies. It's funny, but not completely. I'd probably let a 12 year old, but like i said, depends on the maturity level.

Just saw Tron Legacy. Fantastic work of art, even if it occasionally resembles a Revlon commercial.

While there are some differences from the original, I'd be hard pressed to say one was better or worse.

The A Team.

We wanted to watch a bad movie, not a wasteful one. The humor isn't humorous, the story is confusing and the whole thing is about a 1/2 hour too long.

We should have rented Gamer -- now that's a movie that's so bad it's good!

Oh, I know. I rented it on a night I wanted to see a bad movie and it didn't disappoint! It has a freaking musical number in it, for god's sake! I savored its delicious badness.

You know, I can't even remember the last movie I watched all the way through. I've spent the past few weeks watching TV shows on DVD and listening to music. Let me think....

....

Hmm....

Oh.. It's a Wonderful Life on NBC on Christmas Eve. My first time too. If we count partial, then it would be A Christmas Story (Second half) on Christmas Day.

I really haven't read much about it, and the one review I heard (on Fresh Air, I think?) wasn't terribly positive.

Like all of his films, it's incredibly over-the-top. Definitely fun, though.

Today I watched:

City Island (good)

Ghost Ship (also starring Julianna Margulies, but not so good)

Dinner for Schmucks (not good at all)

I just watched Inception, which had somehow crept by me unnoticed. It's a great followup to Tron Legacy.

That was...interesting and quaint.

Of course, it starred Hugh Grant, so it had to be smashing, righto?

It was fun. That's the extent of it.

Paths of Glory on the other hand, was full of pith.

Legion.

Don't bother if you haven't seen it. Find the trailer, watch it - you've just seen the best parts of the whole movie, and you pretty much get the point of the show.
[spoiler]Did you know that if you're trying to get away from an angel-possessed zombie you can get to safety by surrounding yourself with glass? True story.

Hoards of attacking angels possessing human hosts (why?) attack a middle-of-nowhere diner, the dining room of which is surrounded by glass windows. The angel-zombie-things are completely foiled by the windows, and are entirely unable to get in. In fact, they don't even bother to break the glass.

Before the movie ends they get in a 100+mph crash. This car crash is caused by the avenging angel who is determined to kill them. None of the four people in the car - including the newborn infant and its mother - is wearing a restraint of any kind.

One girl dies. The baby is unharmed. The rest survive in good enough condition that they're able to walk away - nay, good enough that they're able to continue to fight the angel.

And climb a mountain.

And fall off said mountain, only to be able to fight some more.

And then climb the mountain again.

:goth:

I don't have the energy to go into the painfully twisted theology that went into forcing this trainwreck into something resembling a plot.[/spoiler]

Edit: spoiler tags added per request.

Re-watched Batman Begins last night and found myself wondering, "Are there any American actors in this film?" (Yes, of course, I know there are, but there's an awful lot of UKers doing American accents.)

The one thing I love about the Tomb Raider movie is that all the actors have lame phony British accents, except Daniel Craig, who has a lame phony American accent.

you should watch "Cold Mountain", and listen to Jude Law and Nicole Kidman try to talk with a hillbilly southern accent. (Renée Zellweger seems to come by it natural)

Tekken, released in Japan last year.

It's such crap that the video game had a better story. Even the CG characters' acting was better.

The King's Speech

Not the kind of movie I typically seek out, but it was funny, engaging, interesting and informative. Go see it; it's good.

Pretty much. Lower budget, and while it was filmed in English it was obviously not the first language of most of the actors.
