At least he's playing more roles than "Christmas Elf" and/or "Leprechaun."

They sure don't call him "Little Finger".
Oz The Great and Powerful.

Badly cast. Maybe it's me and with an ageist bias but I thought James Franco and Mila Kunis just didn't have the voice or charisma for their roles. At least the flat acting didn't overshadow the effects. Other than that I enjoyed it.


Over The Hedge.

Just more standard action and the same jokes and trite storyline for the genre.

Tootsie. I completely forgot that Bill Murray was even in that movie, it had been so long since I'd seen it last. What a great comedy.

Cloud Atlas.

I was so bored that I gave up after about a half hour.

You gave it that long?

I gave up about at the same point, but I continued watching for a bit longer because I thought it couldn't get worse (actually it really didn't, but it was simply VERY boring).
Moon (2009) Liked it. Reminded me of Space, 1999 for the sets and and Outland for the countdown clock. I think I'll watch Outland next.

The Shop Around The Corner (1940)A film I'd very much like to see as a play.
Outland is a brilliant film. Probably one of the best western to space translations I have ever seen. Other than some dodgy science. I need to find this movie and watch it again.

always loved outland ... should've done better than it did
The Departed (2006)

A bit much. Scorsese lays it on thick. All-star cast delivers.

Watched the new RoboCop movie last night. Pretty good. I watched the original and the TV show back in the day too. I wonder if they will do any sequels or shows based on the new movie?

I doubt it, I thought it kinda flopped - lost a lot of money.

It was alright. Not quite the same level as the first one though.

The only thing I thought was an improvement was him outside his suit...really creepy. Sam Jackson was funny, but not as funny as the media reports in the original.
Kingsman.

A really good new angle on the British Spy trope. Quite enjoyable, what?
The Shining (1980) I can see why there's such debate over whether it's a ghost story or an exploration of madness. The fact that all the sets were built on a studio lot impressed me.

why not both?

The Hotel was haunted and that makes the caretaker mad.

By the way, I watched The Shinning for the first time, some December 24th, starting at 11:00 pm. I kid you not. Merry Christmas.

I was lucky enough to see it in a theater. It's one hella-good freaked out fuckin' movie.

Also, the book will keep you up at night. Seriously. That scene with the wasps ... *shudder*

Almost Famous
I just didn't buy into some of the main characters--especially the "mistique" of the guitarist.
I stopped caring about 3/4 the way through and kept wondering when it would end.
Funny how a guy (cameron Crowe) who experienced all this type of stuff would create something that just rings so hollow.
Par for course IMHO--the only think he was ever associated with that I cared for t=was "fast Times" but of course he didn't direct.
he's really big on trying to make characters speak big omen-like statements. They catch on with a lot of people, but they always miss with me.


Das Boot
Finally managed to watch this (it comes off netflix today I think).
Really well done, and though it is 3.5 hours and has long stretches showing the boredom of life on the U-boat, it doesn't really drag. The reputation for it being claustrophobic is well deserved.
It also is excellent from an American perspective--as I am so used to Germans being almost faceless guys in helmets in most WWII movies.
This brings a humanity to the fore--you know going in that most of these guys are totally doomed.
I guess they had it coming from bombing Pearl Harbor. :shifty:

Robocop (2014): It's almost a shame that they called it "Robocop," and it's obvious that the studio had its hand in that decision. Remove OCP and the name Alex Murphy and you've got a whole new movie, similar to Robocop 1987 in story (cybernetically enhanced police officer), but different. The old one had Murphy rediscover his personality and humanity, the new one keeps it intact.

Anyway, it was much better than I was expecting.

There are two Evil Dead movies (Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2) with Bruce Campbell in them.

2 is sort of a remake of 1, and sets up for Army of Darkness.

There's also a remake, without Bruce Campbell/Ash, and coming soon a TV series, with.

They did remove his humanity before the press conference where he was introduced. He gained it back when his wife was yelling at him in the parking lot and he started looking into his own murder. Remember the doctor saying "He's undoing what we did to him!"?

Yes, but 1987 Robocop had to work to find out he was Alex Murphy, 2014 Robocop knows who he is. I thought it was an interesting tack to take. Too bad they didn't explore & develop it as much as they could have.
Blade Runner.

Ok. Not great. I was a big Sean Young fan and I think she's the best part of the movie.

I don't get what all the fuss is about.

Yeah, which version? The original? The workprint prototype version? The San Diego sneak preview version? The US theatrical release? The international theatrical release? The US broadcast version? The director's cut? The extended version? The extended director's cut? The ultimate unedited in any way version? The ultimate unedited director's cut?
I saw whatever was on the original VHS release, which is what I have.

It's an OK film and I find it hard to believe that some tweaks will turn it into the masterpiece I've been told it's supposed to be.

It's true.
Remove the stupid over-dub, replace the dream sequences, and suddenly you're presented with the questions; Is Deckard a replicant? Do Deckard and Rachael live happily ever ... uh, five years? Huh?
It's those ever-lingering questions that have elevated Blade Runner from cult-classic to Sci-Fi Masterpiece.

It is flat out stated that the five year thing was a fail-safe, to prevent the replicants from taking over. It believe was heavily implied that Rachael was a sort of prototype, and that she may not have the same fail-safe.

God I love that movie...

K-PAX, the one movie that links Frank Underwood and Jesse Pinkman.

Actually there is an actor from The Wire in the beginning, so it's like watching Breaking Bad AND The Wire.

Watched "The Woman in Black" last night. The ending kinda sucked, but otherwise it was pretty good.
Mission To mars (2000)

What a mess. Great sets. Atrocious dialogue. Laughable, even.

Avoid.
