    I don't mind looking at Ewan McGregor for a few hours, but listening to him "sing"? Such a nasally, whiney voice. No thank you.

    Um ... That's an interesting take on Ewan's voice, lol. I can listen to his version of 'Your Song' and 'Come What May' all day

    His voice isn't perfect, but I still like it. And at least he had some power in it. I adore the movie, but at the end when Kidman is supposed to be singing live from a stage even at 11 I was like, the first row wouldn't even hear her.

    Jim Broadbent kicks ass, though.

    I saw 'Oz the great and powerful' in 3D today. It was quite entertaining and I liked the idea of creating a prequel to The Wizard of Oz. It fit that story perfectly. I was not impressed with James Franco (may be because I have seen him do so well in very challenging roles). Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis as the three witches were good. The visuals were nice and not overdone like some CGI movies are. The china doll was cute. Overall a nice way to spend a couple of hours and forget that the rest of the world exists.

    Sorry Ryan Gosling fans, my screening to "The Place Beyond The Pines" was cancelled.

    Up next week is Danny Boyle's "Trance," and if anyone REALLY wants, "The Adventures of Burt Wonderstone." Anyone, LOL?

    Loved the animated supporting cast in "Oz," too.

    Not bad news for me; I don't think I have seen any of the originals you mentioned (exception might be for some cut up version of National Treasure shown on TV) so I won't be needing to spend $$$ on the sequels.

    I hate sequels, but you are only a messenger. No problem.

    Why can't films just be films these days, why does everything have to be a "franchise starter"?

    Not sure if this film has been mentioned earlier in the thread, but last night I saw the documentary Sound City, directed by Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) about the famous recording studio of the same name. It is excellent. The first part tells the story of the studio, and in the second part Grohl buys the studio's mixing board, sets up his own studio, and invites musicians who recorded at Sound City to come and play with him.

    You have to love a film that's big hearted enough to include Rick Springfield, Lee Ving from the punk band Fear, Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney, and Stevie Nicks. And every single one of them

    I saw the film on video-on-demand, but I believe you can also pay to watch it online at the film's website (soundcity.com).

    Because no one has had an original idea in Hollywood for 30 years.

    There are plenty of movies released every year that are not part of franchises. Plus, just because a movie is a member of a franchise doesn't mean it sucks. Skyfall, the HP series, THG are all recent examples.

    The Twilight series notwithstanding

    And what exactly constitutes an original idea these days? I hear that a lot. Obviously, every film can't be original, but there are plenty of well-made, good films every year, and every once in a while there is one that stands out as original. Last year I thought both The Artist and, in particular, Tree of Life qualified. Avatar had a hugely derivative script, but as a whole I would definitely say it was original. Movies have been around for a while now - can anything at this point have quite the effect of Star Wars or Citizen Kane?

    Okay, I need feedback on the second trailer listed here for the smaller movies opening this week (Upside Down). Only the first trailer is going on my To See list, but I'm wondering if Upside Down should be as well. To me it looks to be a very beautiful film...with a wonderful premise...but a stupid story. What do you think, interested? As for the rest of the trailers, the last two look AWFUL.

    At first I thought, "romance... not my cup of tea..." and then I watch the trailer... OMG! Why is this a smaller movie? It is visually beautiful and the concept is interesting Thanks Peter, I'm going to try and catch this one

    There is a documentary about WW2 opening on April 5th and I hope it comes to a cinema near me. It is called "No Place on Earth" and is about a group of Jewish Ukrainians who hid in a cave for 18 months to escape the Nazis.

    P.S.
    Upside Down = Not my cup of tea. Silly twist to the Romeo & Juliet tale.

    The teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola's latest film, The Bling Ring, was released a few days ago. It stars Emma Watson and a bunch of newcomers playing the real life Bling Ring, a group of teenagers who burglarized a few celebrity homes (including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson).

    Coppola shows off her ability to use music effectively yet again. I think the teaser is pretty effective.

    I finally saw Inglorious Basterds and hated it, like I do most things Tarantino. The only Tarantino film I remotely liked was Jackie Brown, and that was because of Pam Grier.

    I saw Oz this weekend (IMAX 3D) and I really enjoyed it. The visuals were great (as to be expected) but I was surprised that I really liked this explanation of how the wizard came to be in Oz and of how the Wicked Witch of the West ended up being so wicked...I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it but I thought it was an interesting twist. I enjoyed all three witches and thought they played their parts well. Even though Franco looked a bit high at times, he played his role well too. I loved the China doll and Finley the monkey...and Nook was funny too!

    Rumor is this is supposed to be the first in a franchise which leads me to wonder if they are planning on introducing Dorothy to the mix. I'm guessing there is more to explore in terms of the witches and their relationships but can you make a whole movie out of that? IDK, but I guess we'll see...

    Overall, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it. I'm not one who sees something in 3D just b/c it's in 3D but I feel like this movie (like Avatar) should be seen in 3D. There are some good bits of 3D (stuff coming off the screen at you) integrated throughout but it's not excessive or pointless. It's worth the extra $3 or $4...and if you can see it in IMAX, I'd recommend that as well...especially when Oz is coming into the land: you feel like you're free-falling! Very cool...
