    Carey Mulligan was Sally Sparrow in Doctor Who, I love that episode and thought she was awesome in it so that has earned her my fandom. Also I though she was amazing in Never Let Me Go, so I am willing to give this a chance for her.
    The only Baz Luhrmann movie I have seen is Moulin Rouge, and the last time I saw it was years ago. Before I really thought about the movies I saw. So I don't really remember if I liked the movie, or if I just liked Ewan McGregor in the movie. And while I could go back and rewatch it, I could also watch something else that I know I like. Or something I haven't seen yet.

    Having looked at the soundtrack listing I am going to amend that to about half of the soundtrack, I didn't realize how much rap would be on it. I kind of forgot Jay-Z was producing it. But what little I've heard from the trailers still sounds good. At least according to my weird taste in music.

    For me it's: love Carey Mulligan, neutral about Maguire, DiCaprio has gotten really samey but can be great and I think this will be right in his wheelhouse. I hated the book. Well, ok, didn't really hate it, but thought it was the most over-rated 20th century novel after anything by Hemmingway. But I love the look of that era, and I think Baz Luhrmann's touch could be electrifying, and his no-doubt dizzying, ott treatment could be just the thing to make me watch the movie.

    Wow, I absolutely love almost anything by both Hemingway and Fitzgerald. The Old Man and the Sea was a shattering experience when I read it as a kid.

    You must have not enjoyed Midnight in Paris as much then.

    forgot to mention in my catchup post that I had senn, and highly approved of, "Anna Karinina." give me lavish visual extravagence and I'm usually a happy camper lol. "Killing Them Softly"--well.....uh, Brad Pitt was real good but everything and everyone else pretty much sucked.

    Waiting not so patiently for my turn on "A Royal Affair." I needs me my Mads fix, whee!!


    Today am taking home "the Queen of Versailles."

    I absolutely loved Midnight in Paris. For many reasons ... one of which is the fact that wasn't written by either Fitzgerald or Hemmingway.

    I'm impatiently waiting for that one too. At last check I was #9 in the library queue, but they have 4 copies so it shouldn't be too long.

    Love Mulligan, neutral about Maguire and DiCaprio. However, have read The Great Gatsby twice and have seen the opera once, and I remember nothing, especially about the book. I'm giving it the most over-rated title also. Don't like Hemingway either, but I think I haven't read enough of him actually. May have to give him another try before I am sure.

    Certainly am not going to see the movie; whatever version of the trailer I saw about 4-6 weeks ago turned me off completely. It looked awful.

    You may have noticed that it was Woody Allen's brilliant, ironic but loving Valentine to them and other artists of the time. And also the Belle Époque. It's Hemingway.

    Did "NO" make it to many theatres in the US? Here in Canada, it only made it to maybe 1-2 screens in the entire city, but those screens were packed..

    Looking ahead to May, I think What Maisie Knew looks intriguing. It's based on a Henry James novel -- one that was really ahead of its time, so I think an update makes a lot of sense. Eager to see what they do with it.

    I also might check out Not Today. I've written a bit about human trafficking before, so I might want to review it.

    So one of the movies I saw recently while house-sitting was Superstar (Molly Shannon, Will Ferrell, Tom Green and Mark McKinney) . For some reason I thought it bombed at the box office (like most SNL movies have done), so I didn't expect much. I'm surprised I had never seen it because I LOVE Molly Shannon and I also love the Mary Katherine Gallagher character. So I was surprised to enjoy the movie so much. Ferrell is great as always and his character (the school stud) doesn't always do what you expect, so that made the movie much more interesting. The script was really great and all the supporting characters were very strong. Plus I love comedy that has an underlying dramatic depth to it, making it have a profound aspect to it, adding layers that other comedy movies completely miss out on. Shannon is great at this and delivers in spades. And according to the-numbers.com, the movie cost 16 million and made 32 million. Add on advertising costs to the budget and the movie doesn't come out as a blockbuster, but with TV rights and DVD rentals and sales, it did make a profit. Worth a view for sure.

    According to imdb.com, The Host has a screenplay written solely by Andrew Niccol. I'm sure he changed everything so that it resembles none of the work of Stephanie Meyers. Now go see the movie and enjoy the cast!

    Would that I could. Right now it costs to much to leave. Also I don't think I can transfer in my job until August when I've been there for a year.
    I'm going to have to wait on The Host for a week or two, I'm back on nights for the rest of the week so it will come down to what I get for shifts on my next schedule. I dislike nights, not enough time to go to movies.

    I'm going to be back in the US next week and the only movies showing at my local theater are Scary Movie 5, Evil Dead, G.I. Joe, The Croods, and Jurassic Park. So...I guess I'm seeing Jurassic Park in 3D, because I have no interest at all in the other four. And I need to see a movie, you guys.

    I feel for you.

    I would have made the same decision as you did.

    Another movie I saw while house-sitting was an Australian action drama starring Ryan Kwanten [True Blood]. I had never heard of it, but I love Kwanten, so had to check it out. Thought it was quite good. A great example of a movie from another country that for whatever reason gets little or no notice in other countries. Although I just checked imdb.com and while it got a good rating (6.4) the message board looks pretty harsh. But sometimes the posters there are pretty jerky (jerk-ish?). Plus there's some nice cinematography of the Australian countryside that I enjoyed. Not as beautiful as Kwanten, but still quite nice!

    I might have found a movie-going partner where I live, plus I have some movie passes I used with my Mom's air miles. So I'm hoping I'll be seeing this shortly after it comes out.

    He seemed to have quite a big one in Magic Mike.

    So picky!! Scary Movie looks really funny, Evil Dead seems to be getting some good buzz and The Croods looks BEAUTIFUL. I can live without G. I. Joe, though.

    I am a movie snob, PeterG. I thought you knew this I haven't even seen Scary Movie 4, and Mary McDonnell is it, and I generally have a rule that I see anything with her in it but...

    I wish. The Worlds End got bumped to August and I am super excited for it. I have yet to see anything by Edgar Wright that I don't love. Elysium looks awesome. I anticipate much time spent in theatres in August.
