Just seemed like it was trying to be too much, writing this makes me think it really could have been two separate movies. Still, it's very well-done drama/sci-fi.
    I like it Gordon-Levitt looked a little weird in that make up, but I think he did well as young Willis. I had some problem with the time travel paradox thing, but I guess that would happen every time there's time travel and as a viewer I shouldn't fuss too much about it.

    I agree. But darn, that little girl sure is adorable


    I watched oblivion today I really like it, but I thought the final confrontation felt a little rushed. I would appreciate more details on what really happened. I really like the twist and turn of the movie and really enjoyed the ride :3 I still like Tom Cruise and I still think Tom Cruise is good looking

    I'm going to see Iron Man 3 on Friday. I love the first one, but don't really care for the second one. This one is apparently going to be a bit darker, which l see as a good sign.

    I was reading in Entertainment Weekly about how many movies are making more money overseas than they are within the U.S. The current example they gave was for Ice Age: Continental Drift which earled a franchise-low 161 million (on a 95 million budget). Overseas it made 718 million! (Plus DVD sales are currently at 38 million.)

    I've noticed this for other movies that I've been keeping note of. They include:

    Skyfall (200 million budget)

    304 U.S.
    804 International

    Life Of Pi (120 million budget)

    124 U.S.
    483 International

    Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (136 budget)

    292 U.S.
    540 International

    Battleship (209 million budget)

    65 U.S.
    238 International

    I added Battleship because it was seen as a bomb, but the international box office probably covered the advertising budget, so it might have broken even. Not what they were hoping for of course, but that one wouldn't have smarted as much as John Carter did.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I really want to go see Mud and The Place Beyond the Pines. However, my husband refuses to see either, especially Mud. He wants to see Oblivion or Pain and Gain. Are you kidding me? How did I marry someone with such horrible taste in movies. Thank goodness he is going out of town for 5 days this week, I will be going to the movies every night to make sure I get in all the movies I want to see right now.

    No offence Brian but I side with your hubby. Those other movies sounds way to over the top melodramatic for my liking. That is not to say I will be seeing Oblivion or Shame and Plain any time soon.

    Hehehe I actually tried to see The Colony today. Operative word is tried because about 10 minutes into the movie it skipped to aout midway, and turned upside down, started running in reverse, the sound was out of sync and did to even sound like English. (Did ya fellow all that?!) The showing was cancelled and I got two coupons for free movies. So it was not a total loss but I sill want to see The Colony.

    I would go to both of those with you, Brian! They're never going to open in my little town

    Okay, a few I've watched recently:

    The Perks of Being A Wallflower
    - As excellent as I'd expected. The young cast did a really astounding job and as a girl who grew up with Harry Potter I'm stoked to see Emma Watson developing into a fine actress and choosing good projects like this. I can't imagine how an adaption of this book might have been made better. The script was really excellent - did he get a nomination? The music, of course, was good, as it must have been, and they really did an excellent job getting into the minds of teenagers.

    The Beaver - Okay, so it was worth it, PeterG Really, this was a fantastic film. Jodie did a really good job. Gibson was really, really excellent in this. He should have gotten a lot more notice for it but I know that the whole world is pretty anti-Gibson these days, for pretty justifiable reasons. Anton Yelchin is just adorable. He and Ms. Lawrence were excellent together and they did a wonderful job mirroring the son and father's journeys.

    Django Unchained - For the most part, this was as excellent as most of Tarantino's films are. My God, the scenery was wonderful! Some of the shots of Waltz and Foxx riding or walking with the natural beauty of the USA behind them were just amazingly gorgeous. I was blown away by that. All the performances were amazing, particularly Waltz's, which I fully expected. Tarantino really does have just this amazing talent for pulling remarkable performances out of all his actors. The worst actor in the film was Tarantino himself, IMO But he was only in it for a short time. Waltz just blows me away. What a completely different character from Hans Landa. I can see why he won the Oscar. I wasn't a big fan of the only two female characters in the whole film being 1) A totally vapid Southern belle and 2) a sexually objectified damsel-in-distress, though. That irritated me. And the last 30 minutes of the film were totally unnecessary and boring. It would have been a much better film without that last part. I totally lost interest. Also, Dicaprio is just never going to win an Oscar no matter how amazing he is, is he? Was he even nominated for this? He was nearly as good as Waltz, IMO. The fact that he actually cut his hand open in one scene and just kept going without breaking character at all and was bleeding all over the place just blew my mind. I suspected it wasn't scripted that way and I was right.

    The House At The End of the Street - Yeah, I just rented this because it was the only Jennifer Lawrence movie left on the list (excepting SLP, which I am renting the second it comes out on Tuesday. They were actually packaging them up at the video store yesterday and I offered $30 if they would let me get it early but of course they said no ). My God, you guys, I had really low expectations, but I was still blown away by just how mind-bogglingly bad this movie was. I have no idea why she did it when every other movie she's been in has been good, but I guess we all can't make good decisions all the time. The twist is just horrifically stupid, and it's actually boring. Like, really, really boring. Not a single scare in the whole movie. The 'scary part' doesn't even happen until maybe the last 1/4th of the film, and everything before that is just poor dialogue, mostly poor acting, and little coherency. One of those movies that feels like everyone involved is personally insulting the audience.

    Probably renting Lincoln tomorrow. Beasts of the Southern Wild was out when I went yesterday, so if that's in I'll get both.

    The House at the End of the Street was seriously AWFUL! I could not believe such poor acting was coming from 2 Oscar nominated actresses. Actually, make that 1 nominated and 1 winner! Shue should have won as well, but I digress.

    I need to look up The Colony. Do not recognize that one.

    I just love melodramatic movies. From time to time I like a good action movie (the last two movies I saw were G.I. Joe 2 and Olympus has Fallen) but I love to go see what I call "risky" movies. They tend to be movies that you think of as life changing or absolute dreck. Never anything in the middle.

    Just finished watching Sinister (with Ethan Hawke). Pretty good, actually. Wasn't sure whether I'd like it, but it did have enough of a twist to keep me interested. I recommend it if you like a scary thriller horror movie.

    If the movie consists of Jennifer Lawrence reading the phone book, I'll probably be there.

    WHAT???!!! I would say it was the worst movie of recent memory, but I just (tried!!) to watch Ted and it was MUCH worse. (At least with Rock of Ages I made it to the end...)

    I rented The Impossible and will watch that tomorrow evening. Tomorrow afternoon, after dropping off the husband with questionable taste in movies at the airport, I am going to see Mud!

    I watched The Impossible late last night. It was emotionally draining. Great movie and I had NO IDEA how it ended. I thought I knew but I made some seriously wrong assumptions.

    Mud was good but kind of slow. It is the type of movie I want to see again because I think there are a lot of hidden things you can catch on repeated viewings. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone as a must see at the theater type of movie but I highly recommend it as a rental.

    Iron Man 3 was AWESOME! Ridiculous, bombastic, probably full of plot holes if you think about it too much, but still highly entertaining, with a great balance between humour and serious business. It's great to see a smartass superhero who's actually affected by the things he's seen and done. And the stinger after the credits is a wonderful thing for a fangirly brain like mine!

    Thank you so much for letting us know there's a stinger!

    I watched Gangster Squad last night because I adore Emma Stone, but for a movie filled with action and violence it was pretty boring. Would have been a lot better with more humor and maybe, just maybe, some actually poignant moments. It was pretty tough to give a shit about anyone in the film and I never actually felt that Los Angeles was in the dire position the film seemed to think it was in.

    I saw 42 yesterday. Overall very enjoyable, despite the handful of eye-rolling obligabory Hollywoodized biopic moments thrown in. Chadwick Boseman was outstanding, and I'm sure we'll be seeing more of him in the future.

    It's funny, though. After the movie my friend and I were talking about how the "next" film would be about the first major league player to come out. Whoever that might be. And then today ...

    I think the movie would have been better if it focused more on Emma Stone and Ryan Goslings characters. I didn't find it boring, just disappointing and not as good as it should have been. Admittedly I still bought it last week, I get an awesome discount on DVDs at my job, but I'll still probably watch Silver Linings Playbook before I get around to watching Gangster Squad again.

    I liked Gangster Squad but think it suffered from the reworking of some scenes and bad writing in general.
