    Saw "The Conjuring" today and really liked it a lot. I would recommend it to anyone who are into spooky movies with little blood and gore. If you are interested in learning more about the true story behind the movie red the link below.

    Octavia Spencer? She might have to gain some weight for it, but I think she has a somewhat similar facial shape to start with. (And like McDaniel, she knows what it's like to be criticized for playing a maid!)

    I did, but I didn't know you meant Mo'nique wanted to star -- she could have wanted to produce and/or direct instead. Sometimes that's what people mean when they say so-and-so has the rights to make a movie.

    Three movies that I really recommend:

    Mama (Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) - Wow, I loved this movie! It gave me chills a number of times it was so effective. The four main characters are all wonderfully played by the stars. If you like supernatural thrillers, you gotta see this one! Oh, and Nikolaj is my new future ex-husband.

    The Words (Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Zoe Saldana, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Ron Rifkin) - I have NO idea why this movie didn't do better at the box office. Too smart?? Wonderful script that never goes anywhere you expect it to. Great performances, although one could argue that Saldana's role was underwritten compared to those of the other characters. The movie did make 12 million on a six million dollar budget, so it wasn't a write-off. I expect this one will make WAY more money over time through rentals and DVD sales because of strong word of mouth.

    Hit & Run (Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Kristin Chenoweth, Bradley Cooper and Beau Bridges) - It's Bradley Cooper double feature week! Another under-appreciated movie, making only 14 million at the box office, but this was made for only two million. (How the HECK did they make a movie that looks this good for so little???) Anyway, another smart script for Bradley Cooper and friends. Lots of fun, but thoughtful and sweet as well. I did not have high expectations for this movie, so I was VERY happily surprised.

    And one that I recommend (just not one that I REALLY recommend) ...

    Modern Times (Charles Chaplin and Paulette Goddard) - This is one of those movies that ended up on my list after looking over one of those '1,001 movies to see before you die' books. I'm not crazy for silent films...that considered, this movie was enjoyable. I watched it pretty much at double speed for the whole movie though. A few classic movie scenes to be sure. And one that made me think, "oh...THAT'S where Lucille Ball got that idea from"! Paulette Goddard looked like Molly Shannon in this movie to me. (But Molly is funnier... ) Wanted to see what Charlie Chaplin looked like when he wasn't in Little Tramp gear and make-up. This is the photo I liked best that I found. HOTTIE!!!

    I loved 'The Words'. Coooper impressed me, and with Silvers Lining Playbook, he shows he is more than a pretty face. Jeremy Irons is one of my favs and does not wrong. Also I read somewhere that the script was written by a friend of Cooper's and he got it made after his success in Hangover. Plus that fact I saw a clip of Cooper speaking french on a french tv show - again not a another pretty face. I really enjoyed how The Words unfolded, and yes, not a standard story.

    I have been working on cleaning up my DVR, from movies I recorded back in Feb on TCM. ones I had not seen before....
    To Have and To Have Not - my expectations were to high, it was good, not great. Something about the setting, etc just felt a little like Casablanca lite and not original. Chemistry between Bogie and Bacall was cool.
    An American in Paris - music and dancing was good, but story line was boring. I found myself playing games on my cellphone, not a good sign.
    Singin in the Rain - see review for An American in Paris. Something about the makeup on Gene Kelly distracted me, looked kind of botox like, but that wasn't around then. Again love the singing and dancing, but storyline so so. But Jean Hagen as Lina Lamont was really fun, as was Donald O'Connor.
    I think I enjoy musicals more when the story is meatier and not so light.

    Also rewatched Rebecca (1941) for the umpteenth time. Just love that movie. I think because I remember seeing it as a kid and still enjoy it.

    Also saw 'Dream House' with Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. Good thriller, unexpected turn. But one of the those movies that based on the casting, it gave somethings away. Watts part was really small and you know she had to be important, as was Jane Alexander. Sometimes movies like this are better if the cast is complete unknowns. I think if that was the case with this movie, it would have been even creepier.

    I've been wanting to see that -- I've seen very little Chaplin, but I loved Goddard in The Women. Her part was a little overwritten at times, but she really made something special out of it.

    Modern Times is my favourite Chaplin film.

    I just saw The Heat and it's the funniest movie I've seen in the theatre in years. It pinged my particular sense of humour and I was belly laughing the WHOLE way through. McCarthy and Bullock have super chemistry and seriously, McCarthy is amazing in this. She's just so badass and razor sharp, and she's so wonderful in her vulnerable moments too. Fun night.

    The Wolverine took the top spot at the box office this weekend, with 55 million. Which is half of it's 110 million budget. But if they spent 55 million on advertising and publicity, that means they are back to zero. These kinds of movies do better overseas, so I'm guessing it will break even, if not make a profit. But I doubt the people behind this movie are happy with 55 million. Despicable Me 2 is now at just over 300 million in less than a month and there's no way The Wolverine will catch that. (Despicable Me 2 has made 311 million overseas...is it the new "Titanic"? Who expected this to be one of the biggest movies of all time??) The Wolverine did take in 14,000 per theatre, double that of The Conjuring at #2 with about 7,000 per theatre. But the big per-theatre winner was Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, which opened in only SIX theatres, but took in 102,123 per theatre!

    The weekend box office chart

    Helen Hunt viewing week:

    The Sessions (with John Hawkes, William H. Macy, Moon Bloodgood and in smaller roles, Rhea Pearlman and Adam Arkin) - I loooooved this movie! John Hawkes was DEFINITELY robbed of an Oscar nomination. At least Helen got one, but while she was really good, John deserved one more in my opinion. This is such a wonderful movie, sweet, thought-provoking and one that you don't want to pause because you have to know how it's going to go. I noticed at imdb.com that the budget was only one million. I'm guessing everyone loved the script and decided to work for scale. The movie made six million in the U.S. and four million overseas. Such a shame that it didn't do better, but at least it didn't lose money. Another one that I think will do well on DVD through positive word-of-mouth.

    Every Day (also with Liev Schreiber, Eddie Izzard, Carla Gugino, Ezra Miller and Brian Dennehy) - I had never heard of this movie, just stumbled upon it at the library. And that exactly describes how I'd rate it...something you'd pick up at the library for free when you've got nothing else to watch. That's not a thumbs down, though. Thumbs mildly up...a decent movie but not a great movie. One you would watch because you love somebody in the cast and need to see it because of them. It does have one of the better depictions of a gay teenager in the movie, but the gay bar he goes to must be located in Stereotype-Ville. One extra bonus is a surprisingly fit Schreiber in a speedo during an impromptu pool party.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    PeterG. I have a movie recommendation for you. It is a movie called "Someone's Knocking at the Door." Watch it and tell me if that is not the most ridiculous plot for a horror/thriller movie you have ever seen. It is available on Netflix streaming if you have it. The general idea could have been interesting but it got so insanely silly so fast... Just to be clear, I am recommending a REALLY BAD movie because sometimes they are so bad that they are good.

    I am going to see The Conjuring this week. It looked like a rental but word of mouth has been so strong so I will make sure to see it in theaters this week while I am still out for the summer.

    Isn't this the movie that forced the industry to establish some sort of regulations for animals in movies? Seems like I've read that somewhere.

    The Spectacular Now looks pretty good. My first thought while watching the trailer for The Canyons is "my God, this is TERRIBLE!!!" But then I realized it's supposed to look like that. So I'm intrigued. Could be great and could be crap. What do you think of this trailer??!! Europa Report is the kind of movie I like, but the trailer is AWFUL. Our Children looks like a good movie, but uber depressing, so I'm going to skip it. Cockneys vs. Zombies started off well, but shortly after it started it was all guns, knives, guns, weapons and guns. Blech. Skipping it!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Watched R I P D this past weekend. Ever see a movie that wasn't that good, but you think that if one or two little things were changed it would be good? That was this movie.

    I watched Wolverine today and was somewhat disappointed.

    Spoiler

    I wish they had gone a different direction with this movie. Some parts of the movie felt really slow and played out like a sappy romance drama I wish there was a scene with the girls fighting in a kimono To me, the most exciting part of the movie come after the credit

    Can't wait for Elysium

    I wonder what this will do to Ryan Reynolds' career. Green Lantern was a bust and now this.
