    I watched Anna Karenina tonight with my dad. I love Keira Knightley and Joe Wright, and I love them together, but this film was weird. As my dad put it, it was like a musical with no songs. It was weirdly choreographed and while I could see what Mr. Wright was trying to do I don't think it worked. My dad's a huge Tolstoy fan and he just really disliked it. He said it didn't feel at all like Tolstoy and that the guy playing Vronsky was horribly miscast. I think Jude Law and Keira did a good job with what they had but what they had wasn't much. It was beautiful of course, as all of Mr. Wright's films are, but it was really lacking otherwise. For a talented director he really wasted some beautiful costumes, what was clearly a large budget, and a generally very good cast. And the screenplay was not very good at all.

    Re: "Anna Karenina"

    I actually asked Joe Wright about the staging and he wanted to unfold like a play. It was almost the opposite of "Atonement" which was grand to reflect the scale of WWII.

    The problem was it was a big production based on a big book on a small stage.

    The stories behind the costumes, however, were fascinating. Keira explained that Anna surrounded herself with death: furs, jagged jewelry, etc.

    I can pull up my recordings from the interviews. While I loved talking to them, the movie was disappointing.

    So I screened "Iron Man 3" tonight.

    I like the humorous tone of this trilogy, even though there were some scenes of destruction that brought to mind recent events.

    Robert Downey Jr. had great chemistry with one child actor in particular.

    However, there were some serious plot holes, a way too convenient ending, and the silliness piled on with the whole (spoiler)

    Spoiler

    plotline.

    Still, it was entertaining and the action was good. The 3D didn't seem to bother me that much.

    I didn't stay for the post-credit scene, so I can't tell you about that.

    I've been watching Lauren Bacall movies for the last week. Dark Passage, Key Largo, To Have and Have Not, Blood Alley and ending with The Shootist. It's basically every one of her movies that my family owns. I had kind of forgotten how much I enjoyed her movies it had been so long since I had seen any of them.

    ITA with your dad for the most part, michiruwater. Most of my Russian friends familiar with Tolstoy feel that way, with the exception that Keira Knightly was horrid as Anna. But pretty much everyone agrees Jude Law was really good, as well as the guy who played Steva, Anna's brother. Later I saw Anna Karenina with Vivien Leigh--she was vastly superior IMO. I cared about her Anna and felt devastated by her death. With Knightly, not so much. If you can't get the audience to feel empathy, no amount of furs and jagged jewelry is going to help.

    I was reading Anna Karenina when this came out and I couldn't bring myself to go and see it. Keira Knightly just doesn't have the depth necessary to play Anna, and if Vronsky's wrong as well, it takes the entire heart out of one of the great tragic love stories. IceAlisa, I will get hold of the Vivien Leigh version and see what it's like.

    I have always liked Lauren Bacall, partly for her politics, but she was also a memorable actress in the few films in which she wasn't miscast. Amazing to think she was only 19 when she starred in To Have and Have Not. She's also one of the actors from the classic era who is still alive - she's 88. I don't suppose she'll make any more films, but she was nominated for her first Oscar in 1997 for The Mirror Has Two Faces, losing to Juliette Binoche. I loved her performance in The Shootist.

    One of my main issues with the staging of it was that you really miss the grandness of Russia. It felt super claustrophobic. I kept comparing it to Dr. Zhivago, and how wonderfully that movie captures how huge and beautiful the country is in its cinematography and setting. This movie felt like it was set in France or England in a very small space. There was very little about it that was Russian. If I want to see a play, I'll go to the theater.

    She was amazing in The Shootist. It had been so long since I'd seen it. I've read that her health isn't the greatest anymore so she probably wont be working. It is sad she never won the Oscar.
    Maureen O'Hara and Angela Lansbury are 2 other actresses from that time that are still alive who I have usually really enjoyed. Minus Murder She Wrote for Lansbury. I have loved her in all her movies that I've seen though. Her performance in The Manchurian Candidate was chilling. I love that she's still working somewhat too. Although mostly on stage.

    For Alan Cumming fans: I just spotted that Any Day Now was released on DVD last week. I saw this at VIFF last fall and found it surprisingly effective despite the somewhat sentimental subject matter. My library just listed it on order so I think I'll take the opportunity to see it again.

    I just got done with Silver Linings Playbook. It was a good movie and I certainly was LOLing at quite a few parts. However, it was just a little too unbelievable. He is so in love with his wife for the entire film and then suddenly changes his mind? I also would love to see the sequel to this movie. You know, the part where he goes crazy and she goes crazy and they both go off their meds and end up trying to kill each other and their family in the process? That would probably be far more realistic. I really did like the movie, I just felt mental disease was so romanticized in it.

    "Take This Waltz" and shve it up..... ahem. As Men on Film used to say: http://youtu.be/HZHwxIL9oYo the SONG is fantastic, the movie is not. It may be simply be I am way hella too old for this sort of cra....film.

    "The Good Doctor"--see youtube clip mentioned above. Ayiyiyi.....

    "The Motorcycle Diaries" --very good and highly recommeneded.

    "The Lady"-- ditto.


    then I had to go all Redbox to see
    "Hitchcock"-smart, clever, elegant way to tel the tale. Even if you hate Hitchcock movies (I do) you will like this fun film.
    "Django Unchained"-hehehe. Jamie Foxx roxxs! And a v nice "somehing for everyone" moment when Tarantino obligin;y blows himself up. LOL.
    "Flight"_Denzel Washington rocks! and I'll never fly again....
    "Life Of Pi"-charming enchanting delightful. only wish I had been able to see it in 3D it must hve been absolutly WOW

    and that's all folks-this keyboard sucks and the temp is supposed to drop 30 degrees in a fw hrs so I'm off to get more pins for my pedl and stock up on hot wholesome food wheee! XOXOXOXOX

    I just had a thought. 2009 has been called a "vintage year for SF films", what with the likes of Avatar, District 9, Star Trek, Moon, and a bunch of others all coming out that year. Fast forward to 2013, and we've got another Star Trek film (Into Darkness), another film by Neill Blomkamp (Elysium), Pacific Rim, Oblivion, Ender's Game, After Earth, Europa Report (though I may be the only one who's super eager to see that one), and a bunch of other SF films I can't recall at the moment. Another vintage SF year? I doubt any of this year's films will reach the monetary heights of Avatar, though it seems like everyone I know wants to see STID.

    Actually, if you're quoting the movie, "Houston, we have a problem" is quite correct. But if you're quoting the actual words said by the astronauts in 1970, then it's "Houston, we've had a problem."

    (And what's a little verb tense between friends?)

    Most of the misquotes kept their meaning, but this one:

    5. She Done Him Wrong
    Misquote: "Why don't you come up and see me sometime?"
    Actual movie quote: "Why don't you come up sometime and see me."

    The actual quote is racier than the misquote.

    Ditto. I don't think I've ever heard the Godfather, Planet of the Apes, Silence of the Lambs, Dirty Harry, Wizard of Oz, or Graduate ones misquoted either.

    In fact the only one on that list that I'd say is a "classic misquote" is the Casablanca one. Misquoted so often that it even spawned an ironically titled movie of its own!
