    Two recent movies I've seen include The Chicago 8 (Danny Masterson, Gary Cole, Mayim Bialik, Steven Culp, Orlando Jones and Philip Baker Hall). The directing is incredibly heavy-handed, but I enjoyed this movie still, in part to the performances (Orlando Jones pushes things right to the edge...well, maybe over the edge sometimes ) and in part because I know very little about the subject matter (from imdb.com: "Based on actual court transcripts of 8 anti-war protesters on trial for conspiring to cause riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago."). And I'm a sucker for anything with Mayim Bialik in it even though her part in this is pretty small.

    Also watched the 1935 version of Mutiny On The Bounty. It stars Clark Gable, Charles Laughton and Franchot Tone, the three of whom were all nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards that year. (I found out from the imdb message boards that there were no supporting acting categories at that time.) It won the Oscar for best picture, but no other awards in the five categories it was nominated. I thought this was pretty decent even though the acting is over the top, although it's mentioned in the message boards that this is standard for the time. Charles Laughton was wondrously hateful in his performance. I am so surprised the mutiny did not occur MUCH sooner on their voyage!!

    I have this one on hold at the library. I will take your thoughts as a warning to lower my expectations. Maybe in doing so I will enjoy it more than I would otherwise.

    I love Terrence Malick but I think it's weird that it has a month to go and neither a title nor a trailer But I will see it anyway. Great cast.
    Watson is turning out to be a true delight post-Harry Potter. All of the three HP actors are choosing good work, it certainly helps that none of them need to pick a movie so as to pay the bills. But we do need to wait for the world to realize that Rupert Grint is also making some great movie. :respect:

    As for Terrence Malick, I think weird is kind of the norm with him! I think he often keeps his films under wraps, so withholding a title and trailer is something I guess he hopes will add mystery and anticipation for his project. By the way, it also stars Benicio Del Toro, Holly Hunter and Florence Welch.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    "The Purge" had so much potential but fell short.

    Interesting plot, average execution. It's one of those movies that will be studied in sociology and film studies for years though. It's mercifully short too.

    If "The Lone Ranger" doesn't pan out, I will definitely see "World War Z" next week. They spent a fortune reshooting it, so I hope it's good.

    Of course, if anyone wants mild to major spoilers for "Man of Steel," "The Purge" or anything else, PM me.

    Definitely, but normally I love his kind of weird and not knowing the name of the movie is going to irritate the hell out of me

    I finally got to see "Her Majesty, Mrs Brown." It was worth the wait. "Tom and Viv" was not.

    I'm currently reading the play as fast as I can, to prepare for the movie! Incredibly, I've never read it before. #Englishmajorfail

    Oh, Wyliefan, you should check out the Kenneth Branagh-Emma Thompson movie of the play as well. It's wonderful. Well, except for Keanu Reeves, who plays Don John. No, really. He's terrible. But everyone else is wonderful.

    I saw it many years ago and liked it. But I thought reading it would be a good refresher before I see the new one.

    Finally, Before Midnight comes to Canada!

    As with the previous two films, I loved this one. Although I never saw Playbook Whatever, I refuse to believe that Jennifer Lawrence and Will from Alias make a more a believable couple than Hawke and Delpy. Oscars for everyone--including score. Love, love, love!

    Just finished watching Mildred Pierce (Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce, Evan Rachel Wood, Melissa Leo and Mare Winningham). Probably wasn't worth the time it took (it's almost six hours long). Although I did watch it with subtitles at double-speed. Don't see how this warranted such a large expansion of the running time of the original. Maybe three hours...they really took their time with this one. Surprised at how the Veda role allowed the two actresses who played her (Evan Rachel Wood for the later years) to clearly outshine Winslet. Not a lot for Kate to do. I only recommend this one if you're an uber of somebody involved, love this type of stuff...or want to see Pearce is all his nekkid glory.

    Also watched The Tao of Steve which has been on my To See list forever. It's one of those movies that Entertainment Weekly raved about, so it ended up on my list. But afterwards I realized I should pay more attention to the critic who recommended it...and then avoid his/her future recommendations. It's not an awful movie, but just sort of sits there in my opinion. But I don't like movies that have jerks as their hero.

    The word Toby has no place in the same sentence as Garfield...

    I'm seeing Before Midnight on Monday. So freaking excited.

    Also, saw that Frances Ha is coming in a couple of weeks.

    I have a huge soft spot for Evan Rachel Wood (and of course I adore Ms. Winslet) so I've been debating checking out Mildred Pierce. It's just the run time that puts me off.

    I have no real interest in Guy Pearce nekkid, I must say

    I saw "Now You See Me" on Friday. It was alright but not great. Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, and Mark Ruffalo made the movie enjoyable enough to distract from the HUGE gaping plot holes. It's best enjoyed as a simple "magic trick" and not as a well written movie with a tight plot.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    He's got my body type - to not be a bony stick, he actually has to work out and put on muscle. There are worse people to witness nekkid, I imagine.

    Just got back from seeing 'Star trek- into Darkness' in an IMAX 3D format. Very impressive visual effects and use of technology, while maintaining the characters and their relationships. It was a sensory overload for me, however, and from time to time I had to close my eyes for just a few seconds to give myself a break. It's sort of a prequel to an earlier movie (holding off specifics, to avoid spoilers).

    Saw The Purge today and liked it. Finally a movie that up front gives you an explanation as to why everyone runs upstairs instead of out the door. LOL

    Man of Steel soundtrack leaked today. My ears will be ready, although I'm not sure if my eyes will be, judging by the latest trailers.

    Alf isn't home for a week. I'm putting the soundtrack on repeat and stuffing some Henry Cavill into my hungry eyeballs in the meantime.

    The Purge made something like $36 million in one weekend but cost only $3 million to make. Part of the reason I went to see it was Ethan Hawke.
