    One of my all-time favourite films too. I try not to think about how Tatum's & Ryan's relationship soured later ...

    I saw "Prometheus" this weekend, and other than the great visuals and some decent performances (especially Michael Fassbender), I thought the movie was pretty awful. Maybe I might have ignored all the plot holes and unanswered existential questions if the production team bothered to develop the characters enough to care about them.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    What a great photo! We talked about a similar one done last year, I'm thinking it was done just after the Academy Awards? This one is just as good. I think Kate Hudson looks the best, Richard Gere and Jane Fonda look great, too. Some are looking a bit ragged, though (Billy Dee Williams, Michael York and Zachary Quinto). They caught Simon Pegg with a rather displeased look on his face! And is it just me who thinks Jason Reitman is HAWT??

    I have a pair of free tickets to see a screening of "That's My Boy" tonight, I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not .
    Sometimes I think I lost something really important to me, and it turns out I already ate it.

    Andy Samberg = good
    Adam Sandler = bad

    Maybe Sandler's character will get killed off early in the film? :fingerscrossed:

    Re the photo: Loved seeing Molly Ringwald and Jon Cryer sitting together. I know you must think I have it out for Tom Cruise but he looks like a Ken doll in the photo. I do wonder who he consults with to help him look like he did when he was in "Top Gun."

    I was reading some articles from Vanity Fair's Hollywood Blog (thanks to Garden Kitty for the picture link, which led me to this site). Some interesting articles, including the casting of Chloë Grace Moretz in the remake of "Carrie" due out March 15th of 2003. Not sure about Moretz in this role, but her mom is played by Julianne Moore...who I have complete confidence in. Piper Laurie was brilliant in the role, but perhaps a bit too one-note? I think Julianne Moore might bring more to the part. The picture at imdb.com for Chris Hargensen (Carrie's nemesis) looked like some random blonde bimbo until I clicked on the link and realized it is Ivy from the tv show "Smash" (Megan Hilty). I think she will do as well as Nancy Allen, maybe even better. I think the performances will depend a lot on the director. Which is...Kimberly Peirce. Who we know directed Hilary Swank to an Academy Award in "Boys Don't Cry" (and Chloe Sevigny to a best supporting nomination as well). Pierce also wrote and directed "Stop-Loss" which I think was really underrated. It starred Ryan Phillipe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Timothy Olyphant and Channing Tatum.

    I loved the original Carrie. Spacek was beyond amazing. But with Pierce, Moore and Hilty, I think there is a chance that the remake could possibly be better than the original.

    Some good Dorothy McGuire movies on TCM today. Just finished the wonderful Friendly Persuasion. Enchanted Cottage and one of my favorites, The Spiral Staircase, later. It's filled with old suspense movie cliches, but I love it. Good supporting cast including Ethel Barrymore, Elsa Lanchester, and George Brent toward the end of his prime movie career.

    Krzysztof Kieślowski--re-watched "White," just because I really get a kick out of the main character's expressions, then a version of "Red" that I got to see what was on disc 2-interviews, commentary, short films ("Seven Women of Different Ages" was soooo excellent!). Waiting for interlibrary loan of "Blind Chance."

    Krzysztof Kieślowski's films are what I would want if I was stranded on a desert island. they are just perfect, all the ones I've seen.

    I requested "Idiocracy" a million years ago and I'm STILL number 4 on the waiting list. Do I dare call whoever "lost" it an idiot?

    My movies watched this past week:

    10/10 Tyrannosaur - A wonderful movie written and directed by Paddy Considine known best as an actor (In America, Cinderella Man, Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum). And man, does he knock it out of the park with his first-time directing. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the two leads are stunningly amazing (Peter Mullan who was in War Horse, HP and the Deathly Hallows Pt. One and Children of Men, along with Olivia Colman who was in The Iron Lady and Hot Fuzz). Warning: there are a number of violent scenes in this movie, but hopefully that won’t scare you off as this movie is about two people trying valiantly to cling to their humanity in spite of their situation (or themselves).

    9/10 Head On (1998) – Okay, my main interest in this movie was the hotness of lead Alex Dimitriades (and LORD, is he hot!!). But the movie itself is very good as well, showing us the life of a disillusioned youth trying to find his way while struggling with culture and sexuality. I’ve wanted to see this for years and I wasn’t disappointed.

    9/10 The Corn Is Green (1945, Bette Davis) - Great script with a stunningly strong, intelligent female lead. Plus Joan Lorring as Bessie Watty does some scenery-chewing that would do...umm...Bette Davis proud!

    7/10 After.Life – I would have rated this lower, but the one DVD extra, a “Making Of” feature, the director talks about the movie, which clarified a lot of the story to me. This movie bombed at the box office, I expect to some extent because it was released about six months after the death of Liam Neeson’s wife Natasha Richardson. Don’t know why the studio did not hold back the release longer. But it’s a well-made film, but somewhat slow moving. I was able to follow it quite well at double speed for most of the movie.

    5/10 Meek’s Cutoff – This is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. Shot after shot, it is stunning to look at. However, I did watch most of this movie on DVD at double speed. And sometimes I hit the button to double the speed not realizing that I was already on double speed…that is how slow-moving this movie is. Plus, there is no ending. After spending 90 minutes with this group of people and wondering if they will survivor or not, the movie ends...and since there is no ending, we will never know. Thanks. A lot.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    That one just came up in the library queue for me, picking it up in the next couple of days. I'm looking forward to it!

    The Anna Karenina trailer is out. Can't say I like the looks of it very much.

    (Raise your hand if you remembered some of Tanith's expressions when Anna fell back on the bed with that look on her face. )

    My problem is I like the look of it too much. I had the same reaction to The Great Gatsby trailer. Both movies may be all window dressing but I will go and see them because I'm dazzled by the scenery. I hope both films have more dimension and substance.

    I do think it's pretty . . . but the dialogue bothers me. It doesn't sound like Tolstoy by way of Stoppard. It sounds like every romantic cliche Hollywood has ever spouted.

    Well, maybe they only chose the inane lines to put in the trailer.

    If only our local cinema would get the indies or smaller films faster--that is if they get them at all. There are a number I want to see this summer.

    Regarding the "summer" blockbusters: I did not think I would have any interest in seeing Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires but I just watched a 15 minute preview on HBO and I have to say the film looks damned good. So I guess I'll be watching my second fave president (after FDR) kill vamps.

    When I went with a friend to see Prometheus, this is the other one he suggested. My response was something like "Wes Anderson? Very funny..." (meaning not that he is a comic genius, but that after seeing The Royal Tenenbaums, I am scared to see any movie related to him in any way).

    I thought Rushmore was decent, but the trailers for The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom look like more of what we got with the Royal Tenenbaums. No thank you...
