I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard good things about it.

Skyfall

Bumping this up to a 9.5/10 after watching it for the second time. Just love this movie. One of my favorite movies of last year.

It wasn't. It was very good. 8/10 and one of the better movies of 2012. Great soundtrack too.

It is actually pretty good. I watched it last week. It is probably a little bit over rated but it is a decent film. 7/10

I've heard good things about it, and good things about the book... But I just know it's going to hit all of the conventional angsty, 'I don't fit in', 'Don't worry about fitting in, be yourself' stuff that every product of this genre goes for. Preaching individualism, yet broad and appealing.

the thing 2011 - 5/10

probably deserves a 4, but the chick was so hot. that's what i like to see, beautiful natural looking women without too much fake ass make up. i can't believe that was the same chick from scott pilgrim, cuz she was eh in that film.

too many missing holes and lack of character depth. and the worst: cgi. don't ever follow up a classic with dat bullshit.

Don't judge a film by its poster.

Batman: Gotham Knight - 2/10

Pedestrian at best. Bad art, incoherent script.

I went Saturday afternoon to see Side Effects. I seem to just have a thing for Soderberg. He makes really moody films. Sometimes his material doesn't fit the moodiness of the film he makes, but this one definitely does. I do wish he used more score.
Very Noir. Felt like something Hitchcock might have made. I have to say that I did figure out the twist long before I was supposed to, but I'm alright with that. Rooney Mara was genuinely creepy in spots. And Jude Law was excellent as a guy falling apart with obsession, he would have made a nice Robert Graysmith in Zodiac. It made me remember just how good he can be for a guy who I haven't seen in a while. If there's a major knock on it I can think of it's that it is really dark, in that you walk out of there just not really liking anyone, and almost feeling a little dirty.

I'd give it a mid 80s. One of those movies that will probably be forgotten about by the end of the year, but probably something that could warrant fringe Oscar consideration next year. Weird time for a movie like this to come out. Maybe it was pushed back from end of 2012.

As excellent as it was, it doesn't have anything about it that screams that has to be seen on a big screen, but it's not like there's a lot else out at the moment.

I have a backlog of films I'd DVR'd from IFC and watched a few last week. I particularly liked The Verdict.



Early '80s courtroom drama starring Paul Newman as a washed up alcoholic lawyer who gets one last chance to redeem himself. Decent plot and script although the Hollywood ending is predictable and abrupt. Newman's performance is stellar. Best scene is when he walks into a bar and flat out punches a chick in the face. 7/10
