    Overall I like the movie, but I love the scenes in krypton more than the rest of the movie. In Thor, I also love the Asgard scenes a lot more than the Earth scenes.

    Caught 2007 indie movie "Then She Found Me" with Helen Hunt (who also did a good job of directing), Colin Firth, Bette Midler and Matthew Broderick about a school teacher whose marriage is dissolving at the same time her adopted mother dies. More complexities arise as she meets her biological mother and becomes involved with the father of one of her pupils.

    Well acted and paced. The plot does tend to be a bit melodramatic (but luckily not maudlin) at times, but nothing seems so incredibly implausible. Definitely worth a peek.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I read that WWZ is estimated to take in $63 million which is much higher than the original estimate of $46 million. I think word of mouth is really strong on this one and it should have less of a drop off next week than most.

And was I surprised to find out what an amazing soundtrack this movie has! Brilliant song after brilliant song! And wonderful production numbers, couldn't take my eyes off the screen for fear of missing something wonderful. Great performances all around, although a tad melodramatic () but I think that's what they were going for. What a wonderful movie! One interesting thing I learned from imdb is that Jack Wild, who played the Artful Dodger, went on to play Jimmy on H.R. Pufnstuf. I loved that weird show as a kid!

    The movie I liked was Charade (Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Walter Matthau, James Coburn and George Kennedy). Wonderful, witty dialogue, fast-paced script and great performances from the two leads. I had watched "Wait Until Dark" a few years back and after seeing this one, I'm thinking I need to search out more Audrey Hepburn movies. Love her!
    Those are 2 of my favourite movies. Oliver! was one I saw fairly often growing up because my parents had it on VHS. I have since bought the DVD. Reviewing the Situation was always my favourite song from that movie. Charade was the first movie I ever bought myself. I was on this massive Audrey Hepburn kick, still am really, and when Charade which I hadn't seen before, showed up in my parents Columbia House catalogue I saved up and they ordered it for me. I think I was 13.

    I agree about Wait Unti Dark. Audrey Hepburn is amazing in it. But it freaks me out so much that I've only seen it twice. Once when I rented it and then again after I bought it. And that was probably 5 years ago.

    Thank you to everyone for encouraging me to see Amadeus. It was as amazing as you told me. I can't remember if I saw it when it came out and forgot it, or if I simply never got around to seeing it. Does anyone think if it got released today that the producers of the movie would have put Hulce up as supporting actor (a la Brokeback Mountain)? I'm glad Abraham won best actor, but Hulce was equally incredible. And I knew Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) was in this movie, but I didn't recognize her until later when I looked up to see who the actress was, thinking she had been in Little Darlings with Kristy McNichol and Tatum O'Neal...OOPS, just checked and that was her!!! I'm going to have to watch that one again now, too! And Christine Ebersole was great in her tiny role, wish she was in some bigger projects these days.

    I quite liked her in Haywire. And American Gladiators. Gina's next movie is called "In The Blood" and the imdb.com description is: "When her husband goes missing during their Caribbean vacation, a woman sets off on her own to take down the men she thinks are responsible." Her co-stars include Danny Trejo, Cam Gigandet, Stephen Lang [Terra Nova], Luiz Guzman and Treat Williams. Her only other project is a 2015 production with rumoured co-stars LINDA FREAKIN' HAMILTON and PAM FRICKIN' GRIER!!! How KICK-ASS will THAT be??!!

This seems to be the big thing in these movies, let's watch these superheroes fight the villains in NYC and let's see how real we can make it look when they crash into the sides of buildings and throw taxis around.

I saw it again not that long ago too, and I thought it held up very well indeed.
    One thing I didn't mention was Tom Cruise's total commitment to the role. He was completely immersed in his character. His final scene where he shouts, "It's beautiful, man!!" you can see the drool from his mouth go flying. It made me think of Jane Fonda's scene in Klute where she's crying and the snot drips out of her nose. But she's totally committed to her performance and doesn't blink an eye.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Let's Talk Movies! #23 : A Wolverine, A Super Dude and the End of the World. T

    Did anyone who watched World War Z catch Matthew Fox? He was in about 10 seconds worth and could have easily been considered an extra. He didn't even have a name attached to his character. I wonder if he had a bigger role that was cut down when it was reshot and edited? I can't see him taking jobs that are meant for extras.

    i read where he said that there is a possibility of sequels and his character would be more developed in them
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Saw The Bling Ring tonight. Kind of depressing. They had at least a solid hour of just "Let's go rob So-and-so's house!" *rob* "Okay, now let's go rob somebody else's house!" *rob* "Okay, now . . ."

    Coppola was all about the lush imagery and the lingering shots and so forth, and I understand why, but in the absence of a strong storyline or any sort of moral point of view, it felt almost like she was as obsessed with the celebrities and their clothes as the kids were. It made the whole thing feel very empty, which I guess was appropriate . . . but not exactly enriching or enjoyable.

    Did anyone watch 'Jodi Arias - Dirty little secret' on Lifetime tonight? I missed the start of the movie, but was able to see most of it. Before the murder scene, there was a warning on the screen that there is graphic violence ahead. I had to close my eyes after I had seen some of the murder scene. The actors resembled the real life characters and were believable. Next ahead was an interview with the real Jodi Arias but I fell asleep before that.

    I saw this a couple of weeks ago. It was ok, but not great.

    I went to see Man of Steel tonight, it was pretty good.

    yeah.....not quite sure why she gets to go on the super important military mission. Toby Zeigler ended up doing her part anyway.

    Overall I like the movie, but I love the scenes in krypton more than the rest of the movie. In Thor, I also love the Asgard scenes a lot more than the Earth scenes.
    Agree that the Krypton part was stronger than the rest. And I totally agree about Thor.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    I saw it. I can't decide if it is one of the funniest movies every or one of the dumbest/worst. Parts are so freakin funny, pml. I have not seen all the movies referenced that these actors have done (Pineapple Express), so missed a few of the jokes. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but there are some pretty funny moments. Plus you just want to see what they do next and how it ends. Poor Michael Cera. Emma Watson was funny, and I have never seen any HP movies.
    If you like the movies the cast has been in, I would recommend, but if sophmoric humor is not to your tasting, avoid it.

No sings either lol.saw "inside man"-waste ofgrrreat cast since story lacks."broken city" ditto. No jean dujardin at library for moiz it was "lenny" so also got "rain man" just to, youknow, make sure tom and dustin really are all that lol ;-)

    Just for back from seeing World War Z. Most. Depressing. Movie. Ever. Star Trek and Man of Steel are fantasy/sci-fi so the bad stuff there is kind of cartoon-ish in a way, whereas WWZ is straight-ahead drama with nothing fantastical happening except the over-used CGI effect of masses of zombies crawling over top of one another. (This has been used in TV ads, so it's not really a spoiler.) It's almost like a documentary where your spouse is killed, then your parents are killed, then your children are killed and they as zombies then kill everybody else you know. And when it's not filmed in a gray or black colour scheme, it's filmed in dirty brown. Depressing to look at and depressing to watch (as a story). My friends rated it out of ten as a 7, another 7 and an 8. They asked me and I said, "3".

    Secret Disco Revolution

    Premiers at Open Roof in Toronto on the 27th, followed by select US cities on June 28.
    That looks good! In my opinion (tongue definitely NOT in cheek), I would say that disco was revolutionary in that it helped push black musicians to a more front-and-centre role in pop music. Plus the impact it had on the gay community is of course monumental.

    Here's the trailer from youtube. Weird!! The trailer is basically just one shot, and it does look beautiful. As do the two leads. But it still looks weird.

    Thanks for the warning, PeterG. I won't see this movie. I am already saturated with CGI. I would like to see real drama Guess I have to depend on DVDs and wait for November.

    ^^^PeterG's three friends rated WWZ a 7, 7, and a 8 (out of 10). PeterG gave it a 3. So why are you listening to PeterG and not his three friends ?


    Variety/

    WWZ's domestic B.O. is 66 millions. 110 world-wide.

    Not bad. Not bad at all for a movie that had all sorts of production problems.
