    I watched Margin Call last night (a fictionalized version of the events at a fictionalized financial institution leading up to / directly causing the 2008 collapse). I'm still processing how I feel about it. On the one hand, it's refershing to have a film not make judgments, to let you make up your own mind. But on the other ... this is an event that just screams for such judgments to be made!

    But the writing is really, really good, and so is the acting, so definitely worth watching. Would make a good double-bill with Inside Job.

    I mention that I did not like the trailer for G.I. Joe Retalitaion and then the movie gets pulled. I say that the trailer for Magic Mike is awful and no one votes for the uber-beefcake movie in our poll. I am single-handedly killing Channing Tatum 's career!

    I read that the movie was shot in both English and Serbo-Croatian. Jolie did so in hopes that the movie would reach a wider audience. I imagine the DVD release will have both versions. I'm not afraid of subtitles, so you know which one I will watch.

    I saw The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel today and enjoyed it, though not as much as I expected considering the marvelous cast.

    I see that Wes Anderson and Bill Murray have worked together again. I don't even know the name of the film but it will be an automatic must-see for me when it is released.

    "Moonrise Kingdom" From the trailer, it looks hilarious.

    I saw "First Position" the other night and thought it was absolutely fantastic.

    The movies I watched during the last few days of cold (and cough...thank you Fisherman's Friend)!

    9/10 I Am You - aka In Her Skin (Guy Pearce, Miranda Otto and Sam Neill) - Ruth Bradley as Caroline Reid (the Titanic mini-series) steals the show from some seasoned performers. What an amazing performance! She should have been nominated for an Oscar for sure. This is a great movie to watch with others as it’s one you will want to talk about -possibly for longer than it took to watch the movie. If you’re into dramatic thrillers about someone who has gone missing, you won’t want to miss this one. Here’s the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moqWW9plOtQ

    9/10 Margin Call (Zachary Quinto, Paul Bettany, Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Penn Badgley, Stanley Tucci and Demi Moore) – If I tried to describe what this movie is about, most people would think it sounds incredibly boring. But this movie is SO well made. Perfect script and superbly directed -so well paced. And what a cast!

    89/10 One Day (Anne Hathway and Jim Sturgess) – One of my pet peeves is movies about stupid people doing stupid things. This is a movie that gets it right in regards to likeable yet flawed characters who are doing their best with their lives, but you’re not angry at them for choices they make when they maybe should know better. Often during movies I will watch at double-time with subtitles on, but this one was done so well, that I wanted to spend every second with the characters as the movie unfolded. Bonus feature is getting to look at the beauty of Jim Sturgess’ face for almost two hours.

    6/10 Apollo 18 – A decent view, one to get for free from the library, but not to pay for. Somewhat predictable script, but well directed and acted.

    6/10 Lies In Plain Sight – Had a bit of a TV movie of the week feel to it. Great to see Rosie Perez in anything, as well as Chad Michael Murray, (although both had somewhat forgettable roles, to varying degrees). Another one to find at the library.

    -26/10 Real Steel – So this one was never on my To See list. But when I saw it at the library as a “Quick View” option, I thought I’d give it a shot as a writer in Entertainment Weekly said that this was not really a robot boxing movie, but a father/son bonding movie. So I figured I judged a movie by the trailer. Me: right, Entertainment Weekly: wrong. This is a heaping pile of crap. The whole “bonding with a child over a violent pastime” disgusts me. I’m starting to think that Hugh Jackman is a Hollywood Whore who will take whatever project will bolster his standing in the entertainment industry. What are your hourly rates, Hughie?

    Read some reviews of Prometheus, and they sounded pretty positive. Not groundbreaking, but a solid movie.

    Did no one go see Battleship?

    I was checking Rottentomatoes for reviews on Prometheus a few days ago, but didn't see any. Are some reviews popping up?

    I saw the new Wes Anderson movie, "Moonrise Kingdom" last night, which I really enjoyed. It was very cute, funny, heartfelt, quirky without being too quirky that it's annoying. Love the cinematography, costume design, sets....

    It sucks that Bruce Willis is stereotyped in a lot of action roles because he had a very nuanced performance here. Loved his character.

    From the previews shown at the theater, I really want to see Beasts of the Southern Wild, as well as Ruby Sparks and Safety Not Guaranteed wich were posted here.

    PeterG, I really appreciate you opening these threads!

    I've been finding that RottenTomatoes hasn't been working properly for me for the past couple of weeks. The home page doesn't load any content, and although their search bar works and does load the movie-specific URL, it's another blank page.

    BUT you can still get the relevant info if you do a Google search for "rotten tomatoes prometheus" for example, and see the summary that pops up on Google. As of a minute ago, it was at 89% with 18 reviews.

    I wonder if that tiny, little girl in Beasts will be an Oscar contender. A bit early I know....

    There's a movie reviewer on the local CBC radio with whom I agree about 90% of the time ... so for what it's worth, his two reviews for the weekend were:

    Snow White and the Huntsman: marginally positive review just for Charlize Theron and the visuals. Kristen Stewart not completely awful. Chris Hemsworth does a Scottish Thor.

    Moonrise Kingdom: 5 out of 5, best thing Wes Anderderson has ever done, and while you might go for the big-name adult stars it's the kids who really make the film.
