The Gril Who Played With Fire I agree, not as good as the first one. The ending was a bit of a stretch for me.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World I liked this a lot. It was hip and edgy, but not so much so that a 49 year old like me couldn't enjoy it. Much like a cross between a movie/comic book/video game. Sharp and quick-witted, you really have to pay attention, and are rewarded when you do.
One problem for me though, is that I don't really like Michael Cera. He looks like a retarded bird onscreen.

Best film!!
Great movie!

I have a problem with the Laura Linney story arc, but the rest of it is great, agreed.


Agreed, I'd still take the bedroom scene though with better ending...must be honest though, that brother issue winds me up. Bloody ringtone is everywhere. I watched The Family Man last night and it was his ringtone as well. I think Nokia did it?

Java, it is my sincere hope that the entire collect burns beyond repair the day before it is moved/stolen.

I have no doubt that Dr. Barnes would set the collect ablaze himself if he could before ever allowing these thieves to take control of his collection.

I plan on one more visit before the theft takes place, then I will only enjoy the pieces from my books.
Black Swan
The bad: Script needed word... it was written by one person "and" another "and" another in the credits: that means it was not written together but rather two different script doctors are being credited. It needed yet another revision.

The good: virtuoso acting and directing. I mean, holy crap work. That the male lead did not receive a Golden Globe nomination is a joke. This movie could legitimately provide 3 'Supporting Actress' nominations, 1 'Supporting Actor' nomination, and Natalie Portman will win the Oscar in a walk for 'Leading Actress'. Direction was daring and to get those performances, nearly breathtaking.

This is a good, but not a brilliant movie. But for the pure joy of watching these amazing people work, this is an absolute must see. And despite no CGI, I do think this will be better on the (really) big screen, as opposed to even the 50" plasma at home.

Very good flick.


Thanks for reminding me. I'm wanting to see this as well.

I think you'll really like it. IMO, it may not be timeless, but in terms of capturing modern relationships, but romantic and parent-child, it is excellent.


I will make sure it happens soon. I'm heading to Europe in less than three weeks, and will watch several movies on the plane.

Thanks!

You are welcome. For the record, I had an obvious typo. It should say, "both romantic and parent-child"

Have fun in Europe!
