Luckily I don't have to do that very often as I often pick up stuff when I'm at a random event in one of those cities.
    Maybe I should move lol. A bigger city would be better for libraries. More movies to borrow, more books to read. It would be a win/win really.

    Love Dial M For Murder. It's one of my favourite Hitchcock movies. I totally agree with michiruwater, Rear Window is amazing.

    Me too.

    He absolutely ruined the source material. Avatar: The Last Airbender has some of the most and biggest dedicated fan bases out there, and is really an exceptional television program. However, what Shyamalan did to it was a total crime that not even the most ardent fans could enjoy it. I doubt anyone would want to see the sequel.

    This week's new movies below. Not sure if it's because I'm only watching dramas lately, but only the first three are going on my To See list. Welcome To The Punch looks like a quality film, but too violent for me. The Place Beyond The Pines has a great cast, but the trailer did not grab my attention at all.

    Mental (Comedy drama with Toni Collette, Anthony LaPaglia, Liev Schreiber)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3z4jWDesTA

    The Host (Action adventure with Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Diane Kruger)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRKjf8b4f2E

    Family Weekend (Kristin Chenoweth, Matthew Modine and Shirley Jones)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS-TpNKVrtw

    Welcome to the Punch (Action adventure with James McAvoy, David Morrissey [The Walking Dead] and Mark Strong)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr-O_v0mlx8

    The Place Beyond the Pines (Crime drama with Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G07pSbHLXgg

    Renoir (French drama. From imdb.com: “Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Jean Renoir -- son of the Impressionist painter, Pierre-Auguste -- returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I…”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BENkbm28gNQ

    My Brother the Devil (U.K. drama, new cast. From imdb.com: “Two teenage brothers must face their own prejudices head on if they are to survive the perils of being British Arabs growing up on the streets of gangland London.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZjXLaDbU8A

    Open Road (Dramatic thriller with Camilla Belle, Juliette Lewis, Colin Egglesfield and Andy Garcia)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hxqT7jubhA

    Detour (Thriller, new cast. From imdb.com: “Trapped inside his car by a mudslide, smooth talking Jackson Alder suddenly finds himself in a situation he can't talk his way out of. With no hope of rescue, he must defy the odds; battling Mother Nature for his survival.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPsawQo69Ww
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    The only ones that interest me from this list are:

    The place beyond the pines (anything with Ryan Gosling is worth seeing, IMO)

    Renoir - Would LOVE to see this!

    I saw the trailer of 'The host' and did not like it, so I will skip that. I am really not into action/thrillers unless they are really good (suspense wise) and not gory

    I like Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger. I wish they were in something that Stephenie Meyer hadn't written.

    Mental looks hilarious. Toni Colette can do no wrong as far as I am concerned.

    Just finished watching Jolene (Jessica Chastain, Rupert Friend, Frances Fisher, Chazz Palminteri, Theresa Russell, Michael Vartan, Denise Richards and Dermot Mulroney). Thought it was pretty good. A bit scattered, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing always. Really great cast and according to the DVD extras, this was Chastain's first movie. But be warned, there is some male nudity in this one. Who knew Mulroney had such a smooth, pert bod??

    According to the-numbers.com, The Last Airbender cost $150 million to make and made $320 million worldwide (plus 30 million in U.S. DVD sales alone). So I won't be surprised if there is a sequel. Haven't seen the first one yet.

    What's the population of your area? The large Okanagan library system in central British Columbia is a large system, but they hardly get any new movies. I will think twice before moving there for that reason alone.

    I thought the trailer for The Host looked better than the Twilight movies. A really good cast which also includes Jeremy Irons son Max, who seems to have his Dad's talent.

    Around 50,000 in the city with maybe another 25,000 in the surrounding area before the next major city. Outside of Fort Macmurray I live in an area with one of the highest transitory populations. The Peace Library system is based out of here which sends out books to the whole area heading up to Peace River and up north a ways. But they are a seperate building and don't do a lot of inter-library loans, also our even though our library is part of a province wide inter-library network, they still don't do loans on movies. Which is obnoxious and annoying. I just want more movies.

    It really does, and that kind of scares me because I feel like I shouldn't like anything Stephanie Meyers has been involved in. But there are so many good actors in it. I hate feeling so conflicted about a movie. I like the concept too. I think I'm going to wait until I've heard what other people think about it and then go from there.

    I just don't want to give Meyer any more of my money after I decided to see the unintentionally-hilarious first Twilight movie in theaters.

    "The Host" was awful. Saoirse Ronan is a much better actress than this. She is lovely in person though -- shared an elevator with her last weekend.

    Seeing "Oblivion" next week to get my sci-fi fix.

    If you like a good mindf---, watch "Trance" next week. Oh, if you're into full-frontal Rosario Dawson that's another good reason.

    Saw G. I. Joe and it was not as bad as I feared but the storyline is complete BS so if you are going to see it go for the flashy explosions and fight scenes. What puzzles me is why Channing Tatum has such a tiny part in the movie.

    Rumours of a Crow remake have been circulating for a while and the latest have it starring James McAvoy and directed by Javier Gutierrez.

    I watched The Croods this week and I like it

    The world they explored was just so beautiful. All that colours, all that wonders I really like the character development the family had, especially the father I like the humour and even the sappiness they put in, I thought it was just the right amount

    Still waiting to watch Oz. I heard a few less-than-flattering review though (my friends thought the movie is sexist)

    I just watched Blade Runner for the first time. I rented The Final Cut version on Amazon, and I'm wondering if that was a mistake just because it means I didn't see the theatrical version everyone else probably saw first. From what I can tell the biggest differences are the lack of a narration and a different ending in the version I watched.

    I loved it though. Seriously well done. I think it's one that I'll have to watch several times to pick up on all the nuances I missed the first time. I loved the score, too. Very effective. And Harrison, but, I mean,

    Some movies that I 100% recommend:

    Now Is Good (Dakota Fanning, Jeremy Irvine [War Horse], Paddy Considine and Olivia Williams) - Very sweet story, featuring two of my favourites (Dakota and Paddy). One of those movies that you can relax and enjoy and not have to worry about too many obvious things happening (which can make me sort of crash when I'm really enjoying a movie and then something too obvious happens). Irvine looks very handsome in this movie, as he did in War Horse. So I google imaged him...and while he's attractive, his film directors sure know how to take advantage of his looks.

    Partition (Jimi Mistry, Kristin Kreuk, Neve Campbell) - I have wanted to see this movie for a LONG time and finally had some spare time AND saw the movie sitting on shelf at the library, so I finally got to see it. Wasn't disappointed, which is something that can happen when my expectations slowly grow while I put off watching something. I suppose some might see parts of this as melodramatic, but the separating Pakistan and India is a VERY dramatic theme.

    Killer Elite (Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro and Dominic Purcell) - This is a really good movie on it's own merits, but it really helped clarify my feelings about movie violence. This movie has a very good story and violence is not the main theme, but something that occurs because dialogue and resolution is not really a possibility for those involved. In other movies, violence is seemingly celebratory...I'm starting to think that some people have a fetish for it and get off on the gratuitious violence which replaces communication and the belief that people can work through their issues peacefully. As for the movie itself, Jason Statham has never been better, a real character instead of a comic book type of action hero. It helps that he has a good script and director as well as a great cast to push him to be his best. And who knew that the Welshman was Dominic Purcell! When I saw his name in the final credits, I thought, "wasn't he the guy from Prison Break? Where was HE in this movie??"

    Sarah’s Key (Kristin Scott Thomas and Aidan Quinn) - I think I said in an earlier post that I'm watching WAY too movies with holocaust as a theme, but I've heard good things about this one and couldn't resist. And I'm glad I didn't, this is a must-see. One of the final scenes was just perfect and beautiful and worthy of all the wasted Kleenex. Hey, there's nothing like a good sinus cleanse, right?

    Deadfall (Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, Charlie Hunnam, Treat Williams, Kate Mara, Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek) - Entertainment Weekly was quite brutal with their review of this one, their reviewer must have been having a bad day. I quite liked this one. Doesn't hurt to have two attractive male leads to ogle and SISSY SPACEK who should be in every movie that gets made. Thumbs up Deadfall, thumbs down to Entertainment Weekly!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Saw Partition some time ago and loved it. Glad to see I was not the only one. Watched "Forgotten Warriors" yesterday. It s a documentary about Canada's native veterans and the crappy treatment they got after returning home fom past conflicts. It is fairly old from 1996 but worth watching. Got it from Netflix.

    Why do folks think The Great Gatsby was pushed back?

    I want to see it but am leery of Baz Luhrmann's work as I couldn't stomach Moulin Rouge and its relentless cocaine-fueled editing.

    I am interested in Scary Movie 5, having laughed my butt off with 1-3. Didn't catch 4.

    I do want to see the Steve Jobs movie, Kutcher and all.


    Saw Oz, thought it was poorly put together albeit very colorful. Mila Kunis wasn't at her best and James Franco was especially bad. Rachel Weisz was the one redeeming factor.

    I was reading something about Rachel McAdams (my own girl crush--she was a figure skater, won regionals!!) and that she is starring in Passion with Noomi Rapace of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fame. I will watch pretty much anything with Rachel McAdams but The Notebook.
