Saw Gravity in 3D. It didn't suck, amazingly, like I was expecting it to. The 3D was actually good and it added to the movie.

Saw The Hobbit. It was excellent. I liked it a lot. And the best character in the movie was Smaug, by far. Way too much whisper dialog and overacting, unfortunately. gods, I hate whisper dialog.

Saw The Mist again. It's quite a good movie.

Saw Microcosmos. It's a French movie about little bitty bugs. Lots of bugs. It's very cool. The amount of speaking is incredibly little, so if you saw it in French with no subtitles, it wouldn't matter.

Saw Grabbers. It's a horror/comedy, but it's light on the comedy. It's a good movie. Fun to watch.

I agree with your summary. But it's the best sci-fi book to movie I've ever seen. There was hardly any Hollywood "poetic license".

We went to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night. I thought it looked interesting from the preview but I wasn't sure if I would love it or hate it. It was fantastic.

"The Look of Love" is a UK, black comedy, dramatisation movie about Paul Raymond, the man who started UK porn magazines, Men Only and Mayfair.

It's a copy of "Life and death of Peter Sellers", Behind the Candelabra & "24 Hour party people" and is basically a ensemble cast of UK comedy actors, with Stephen Fry, the boys from Little Britain and Steve Coogan. It was pretty good and worth watching as it recreates 1970's Soho in London.

Steven Coogan is turning into a really good actor. I bet $5 he will end up as a James Bond "baddie" in the future.

Yes. The Lensman series is a natural for films, now that you mention it. Done in Flash Gordon style, I would imagine. I'll join that queue.

Watched Star Wars 1 the fantom menace.

I saw it in the theater wen it came out, but needed a reminder uv why it stunk.

I gess it duznt stink, but its not good. Lots uv lame dialog. All the great sets and props and effects do nothing to instill any life into it. The myoozik often duznt work with wuts happening.

The orijinal Star Warz had the majik that kumz frum true inspiration. The 2nd movie had almost az much. The fors wuz with them! Not so much in the 3rd. Completely absent in Fantom Menace.

OK movie about a local hit man and the guyz he killz. Its a gritty realizm type movie set in the last munths uv the 08 election. They often hav a TV going in the background with Bush or Obama talking about the financial crisis.

We saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug last night. It was ok, but I still think they should have kept it down to one movie; I like the addition of the appendix materials but the brand new stuff is annoying. Also the whole final scene with the molten gold made no sense. I don't know if it counts as a spoiler or not but I'm blocking it just to be safe.
Spoiler:
The trick the dragon into relighting the furnaces under the mountain. Once they were reignited, they melted millions of gallons of gold in a matter of seconds. Thorin then rides away on a wheelbarrow floating down the river of molten gold. This was apparently so they could fill a mold for a solid gold sculpture. Then they broke the mold, revealing the statue which held its form for a minute before relinquishing and spilling onto Smaug. He then just got angry, shook off the gold, and flew away making the whole sequence completely pointless.
So my questions are:
  • Why did the furnaces ever go out if the fuel was still there to be reignited hundred of years later?
  • How did they know the statue was ready to be filled?
  • How did they know where the statue was and how to get Smaug there?
  • How did they melt all of that gold so quickly?
  • What was the wheelbarrow made out of that it wouldn't catch on fire while floating down the river?
  • Why did they think the gold would hurt Smaug even though being impervious to heat is basically his whole deal?
  • Why does this bother me so much? It's a fantasy movie full of magic.

I fell asleep in the last hour. It just wasn't engaging at all. An hour of a CG dragon chasing around a bunch of CG dwarves with no meaningful dialogue, and just endless whizz, bang, schwing, crash, effects. I just wanted it to end so I could go home.

On A Clear Day you Can See Forever

Woct it on Amazon streaming. Excellent movie. I'm not a fan uv muziklz,or this type uv muzik, but I really enjoyed this movie anyway, even the singing!

The thing that got me to see this wuz the video montage sene in Breaking Bad with The Peddlerz version.

Herez the version I like bestClear Day. Therez a nice ej uv insanity in the voice.

PS. This addz another step to yesterdayz coinsidens. Jack Nicholson iz in this movie.

Saw The Lego Movie. I liked it! A lot!

It had a lot of interesting concepts.

Spoiler:
The opening society was a totalitarian utopia. It's a very interesting notion for society for a cartoon that looks like it was meant to be a children's cartoon. It was nonstop propaganda for happiness.

The Lego universe was its own universe, with what seemed like different dimensions. Very nicely done.

The animators did a superb job with the lighting effects and the blurring effects to make the characters and Lego pieces look like actual little Lego pieces. It did NOT look like a cartoon. It looked like animated Lego pieces. Visually, it was absolutely superb. The legs of the characters didn't bend, which helped make them look more toy-like. In other Lego cartoons, the legs, arms, and other body parts bend, which takes away from the appearance that they're toys.

I wasn't as happy with the last third of the movie which was a mixture of reality and the Lego universe. I liked the Lego universe part of the movie more. However, the last third made the previous two thirds of the movie connect with our real life. The last third of the movie was still good, but it wasn't as fun as the previous two thirds.

My girlfriend and I went to see The Wolf of Wall Street on Friday. Frankly, I didn't see what all of the fuss was about. It had a few entertaining scenes (like when Leonardo DiCaprio's and Jonah Hill's characters had a fight while they were both high on Quaaludes) and quite a few good one liners, but overall I found the story to be pretty boring. I had the same problem with this movie that I had with DiCaprio's last movie, The Great Gatsby: the actors all did a great job and the script wasn't bad but I hated all of the characters and as such I didn't care what happened to them which kept me from getting engaged in the story. Also the movie was almost three hours long and by the time it was over I just wanted to go to bed.

We tried to go to The LEGO Movie on Saturday. We were surpised to find that the 9:45 showing was sold out, figuring that a children's movie wouldn't be too busy after 8:00.

The Lego Movie took 69 million on its opening weekend in the USA. It cost 60 million. It has turned out to be an unexpected major hit. I am now tempted to go see it.

LEGO's audience was 55 percent male—high for an animated movie, but not surprising given the content—and 59 percent over the age of 18. Only 35 percent of ticket sales came from 3D showings.

Picked up 4 moviez at the librery to watch over the last week; Pretty in Pink, Numberz Station, 16 Candlez, Weird Science. The 3 John Hughes filmz were rekoed by a frend and # Station I just grabbed out uv the action section kuz it looked like it mite be good.

The weekly coincidence iz that John Cusack iz in Numberz Station and 16 Candles.

Pretty in Pink iz OK, barely. Standard issue teen angst story that tryz to be funny.

Numberz Station iz a good spy thriller. It coud hav been made any time in the last 60 yirz with virtually no difference, just take out the cell fonez & modern computerz.

16 Candlez iz krap. The story iz the same az Pretty in Pink, same lead actress & I think a few more playerz also. It iz suppozed to be more uv a comedy than PiP, but it iznt.
I wuz only a littl suprized to see that I wuz only 25 minits thru it after feeling like an owr had passed. If you havent seen this and hav the impression that its a classic 80z movie to add to a catch-up list, no, it iznt.

Weird Science iz better than I remembered. I saw it several yirz ago and didnt like it much. My frend talked me into giving it a second try. Still not great, but there are sum laffs. Like the other 2 moviez, its partly about unpopular teenagerz and haz sum familiar actorz near the beginning uv their careerz. Sumthing I didnt notis the 1st time I saw it iz the similarityz to Bedazzled: Hot British majik chik helps transform outcast by chanjing hiz perseption uv himself.

Saw 300 Rise of an Empire. Visually, it's stunning. Story-wise, it's just a Hollywood swords and action movie. The villainness was, sadly, generic.

Spoiler:
Pectoral muscles, boobs, biceps, swords, death screams, angry facial expressions, ships, music with a lot of drumming, and blood. Spectacular amounts of blood. It looked like people were really just blood-filled bladders. One pop and it squirts all over.

Supposedly, the villainness was a great naval tactician, but I just didn't see it. The first two assaults on the Greek fleet were disastrous. I thought I could probably do a better job than that. Specifically, don't send in part of the fleet, send in the entire thing. It would have overwhelmed the Greek fleet easily.


EDIT: Here's the main war theme from the movie. It's a quite impressive song when heard with the movie.

I went to both Stalingrad and The Lego Movie this week. I liked both of them but for basically opposite reasons.

Stalingrad was visually stunning and it was nice to see another culture's take on a WWII movie but it really did feel like a souped-up version of a Soviet proganda film. I still really enjoyed it.

The Lego movie was childish and predictible but who cares? It was a movie set entirely in a Lego world, what more could you expect? I don't know that it's worth going to see in theaters but I would suggest anybody with an active inner child see it when it comes out on DVD or Netflix.

Saw Tim's Vermeer tonight. I was astonished. The subject of the movie, Tim, is a complete and total genius. I think he impressed me more than Vermeer, and Vermeer's work is damn impressive.

Tim basically tried to duplicate the techniques that Vermeer used to make his superb paintings, and he succeeded.

The Wolverine.

Not a great movie. Uv all the X Men moviez, I'd nominate this az the least good with the 1st Wolverine movie az 2nd least good. Theyre not bad! Just not on par with the other 4. Cant put my finger on it, but it sumhow failz to grab me. Haz lots uv action, OK story, lots uv stuf about Wolverine, yet I am not excited about it.

I simply enjoy these films and try not to be too critical. They are what they are. Every older boy enjoys a bit of fantasy now and then.

Before it was made, I thought "Captain America" was going to be a disaster. However it turned out to be "very witty" and well crafted. The actor they cast as Captain America was perfect for the role.

However, Ben Affleck is probably going to destroy "Batman". He's an alright actor, but just not insane like Christian Bale.

Saw Oculus. It's good, not great. The villain is unusual.

Orijinal Sin Interesting story. Good job on sets & costumez. Good direction & acting. Lots uv Anjelena Jolie naked. Antonia Bandares also, if youre a lady or gay.

MacGruber OK comedy. Sum good laffs.

The Order A drag. I like Peter Weller, but how duz he manaj to find so many loozer moviez to be in?

Immortals Good sord & majik epic. Thot I saw the guy who played Zeus in this in Law & Order criminal intent az a prizon gard after I finished the movie for my usual krazy coincidence, but its not in hiz kredits.

But therez a coinsidens anyway - the next Library movie I watched wuz Domino; both hav Micky Roarke. Its by Tony Scott, the king uv the ADD editing style, wich I hate. But this movie iz still passable. Lotsa stylized fotografy and jump around story telling that kinda works in this case.

Transendens iz a thotful look at wut koud happen with AI in the near future. How it coud happen and our reaction to it. People who base their life on fear will often make terrible decisionz, but their fear usually iznt entirely baseless.

See it.

A friend and I wated The Amazing Spider-Man this weekend before going to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last night. They weren't bad, I guess, but I was just so bored the whole time. I would not recommend them and I don't really think I'll be investing any time and/or money in the upcoming Sinister Six movie.
