    My week of movie-watching while house-sitting continues:

    Soldier's Girl (Troy Garity, Lee Pace and Andre Braugher) - A wonderful TV movie about a soldier who gets taken to a gay bar/drag show by a fellow soldier (who may be closeted??) and meets and falls in love with one of the performers who is in the middle of undergoing gender re-assignment. Great script and excellent performances, especially Lee Pace [Pushing Daisies] as Calpurnia.

    Swimming With Sharks (Kevin Spacey and Frank Whaley - and Benicio Del Toro in a tiny role) - This one is tough to talk about without spoiling, so I'll just say that it has a script unlike anything I've viewed before, is well directed and paced and a cast that kept me glued to the screen. Tough subject matter at times, but worth a viewing for sure.

    Kitty Foyle (Ginger Rogers) - This one was recommended in an earlier thread after I commented on really enjoying Ginger Rogers in another movie. Rogers has SUCH star quality in this one, watchable for every second she is on screen. Which is saying a lot because her two male co-stars (Dennis Morgan and James Craig) are stunningly beautiful themselves. I found the subject matter (a woman's place in society in the 40's...classism...relationships....) to be kind of heavy at time, but it's wonderful to see all these things dealt with in movies...were filmmakers much more brave way back then than they are now??

    Killing Us Softly 3 - A documentary about women and women's images used in advertising. Eye-opening even though I think I'm more aware of this kind of manipulation more than the average Joe. The very next day I was looking at advertising differently as I was out and about and noticed an ad of a woman silencing herself by putting her hand over her mouth.... The first few minutes of this documentary at youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrtPklzbgWo

    A Day Without A Mexican - This is one which was highly recommended to me many years ago but is not widely available so it took a while before I found it. The theme is that all people of Hispanic heritage disappear one morning throughout the state of California. The movie explores how everyone else's lives are affected without this large group of people who are so often disparaged. What the person who recommended this movie did not tell me was that it was made on a shoestring budget...and I think by first-time filmmakers. And it shows on both counts. An interesting topic, but not really a very good movie.

    And one that I gave up on watching, not because it wasn't good was "Sometimes In April". It's about how people in Rwanda have been affected by the upheaval in their country. I decided not to watch more than half an hour partly because the topic is quite heavy, partly because I've already seen three or so movies about this topic and because I've got other movies to watch on heavier topics and I just can't handle another one right now. I need to get some more comedies or sci-fi! I might watch this movie at some point in the future, though.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I saw The Broken Circle Breakdown today.

    Both the summary from imbd (Elise and Didier fall in love at first sight, in spite of their differences. He talks, she listens. He's a romantic atheist, she's a religious realist. When their daughter becomes seriously ill, their love is put on trial. ) and the trailer wrongly suggest a somehow cheesy movie. That's why I usually avoid watching trailers, because they're often misleading.

    At first, I wasn't so sure about watching that Belgian movie, mainly because I didn't want to hear Flemish after a long day at work (I know, it's silly, but Flemish isn't my favorite language). It took me quite a while to get into the movie, but the talented actors, beautiful imagery and perfect editing finally made me love it. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who feels down because the story is overwhelmingly sad. In the end, I must say I sobbed. Overall, a beautiful movie about love and loss.

    Seems the Belgians are very talented producing wonderfully written and aesthetically perfect movies. A great one is North Sea, Texas.

    And another, very good (and crazy) one: The Misfortunates.

    Dakota Johnson, Charlie Hunnam Cast as Sexy Leads in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

    Dakota Johnson, an unknown actress with big-name parents - actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith - who will play the lead female character Anastasia Steele
    Not only is Johnson the 23-year old daughter of Johnson and Griffith, she is the step-daughter of Antonio Banderas and the granddaughter of "The Birds" star Tippi Hedren. She has had supporting roles in films like "The Five-Year Engagement" and "21 Jump Street"...
    Johnson also played Kate in the Fox TV series, "Ben and Kate".

    And Charlie Hunnam, the star of "Sons of Anarchy," who has been cast to play the kinky 27-year old billionaire Christian Grey
    Hunnam starred in this summer's "Pacific Rim" as well as Deadfall, The Ledge, Children of Men, Cold Mountain, Nicholas Nickleby and the original (British) version of Queer As Folk

    The studios also defied expectations by entrusting the potential franchise to a relatively untested director, Sam Taylor-Johnson ("Nowhere Boy").
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I saw Eyes Wide Shut last night. It... was ****ing amazing. I can't even describe. I know it polarized pretty much everyone, but I adored it. In my Top 10 for sure. And it was gorgeous. And Nicole Kidman is gorgeous. And people do not give Tom Cruise the credit he deserves as an actor, even if I don't like him as a person. Plus, I mean, the whole thing was, as I said, gorgeous. Sometimes style is too much but I love, love, loved it here.

    I also saw Starship Troopers on Friday, which was nuts. What a weird movie. Denise Richards surprised me by not being awful though.

    I saw Schindlers list this weekend. Loved it. I was surprised later when I read some pretty negative reviews of it (as parts of book reviews about Schindler) on amazon.com. A book is a very different medium from a movie, and they really should not be compared, IMO.

    ONE DIRECTION WAS NUMBER ONE THIS WEEKEND!!! First weekend it took in 15 million on a budget of 10 million. Let's hope this means a sequel for next August!!! At #2 and #3 are The Butler and We're The Miller's. What's interesting about these two movies is that they've been in theatres for three/four weeks...and the percentage change in box office is 10%/3%. As far as I know, that's almost unheard of in that movies usually open big and the box office plummets throughout the following weeks. For We're The Millers to drop only THREE PERCENT in its fourth week is pretty amazing!

    The other things that's quite interesting with this weekend's box office is the performance of two non-English language movies. Opening at #4 is "Instructions Not Included", a comedy from Mexico. Not only did it open at #4, but it took in eight million in box office (on a budget of only five million) and most impressively, took in OVER $22,000 per theatre. Compare that to the next best per theatre average in the top 50, which is One Direction with just under six thousand per theatre. This one might be a real sleeper.

    And at #15 is the Chinese language action movie, "The Grandmaster" (starring Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi). It jumps from #37 where it opened last week and the revenue for this movie takes a +1,768% jump! I couldn't find budget info for this one, but it's taken in over 50 million in international box office revenue. In the U.S. it's playing in only 750 theatres, it'll be interesting to see if that number grows and this one becomes a phenomenon like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon...

    New movies out this week listed below that were not already listed in a previous post. And boy, are there a lot! I even deleted four or five that I decided just were not worth the time for any of us. The first six are going on my To See list. Well, probably not Hell Baby, but it's probably a good one for people who like parody comedies. Mission Park has a really good trailer, but it's not really my kind of movie. Same goes for Red Obsession - a great trailer....but I'm just not really into documentaries about over-priced wine!

    "Amour" is a must see. in fact "Amour" is one of the greatest films of all time. Period.
    "the Company you keeP you can skip unless you like the "it's all about the CHILDREN!!!!" concept. ooops just spoiled it, oh well lol.
    "Killer Elite" much better than expected.
    "Side Effects"-ditto.
    "Olympus Has Fallen" but ya know, people mindlessly chanting "USA!USA!USA!" will never fall. For Patriots Only.
    "A Prophet" not as gd as expected. Not really sure it's worth watching once.
    "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" wow has high school changed since I wuz there. Worth watching once.
    "Stoker" run! far far away....and fast!!! Pointless cr*p. excuse me CR*P. gah
    "Cabaret" is still a really really gd movie esp the musical parts.
    "The Hunger Games" better than expected so will look for "Catching Fire" when it makes it to DVD.

    MAJOR RECOMMENDATIONS:
    "Amour"
    and
    "Warm Bodies" which is still the most fun and charming film I've seen to date.

    I saw "Closed Circuit" yesterday. A really gripping thriller, rather a shame that it is tanking at the box office. Other than being perfectly porny, Eric Bana is quite good in the film, as is Rebecca Hall. For those who were whining about Julia Stiles, she is barely in the movie. James McAvoy's wife, Anne-Marie Duff, is one of the villians, and I loved her steely performance in this, I just wish she got the chance to be more bad-ass.

    Anyway, catch it soon if you want to see it in a theatre. Sad to see a good movie do so poorly. (Especially given other crap in the market place like "Getaway" and "Riddick" )
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Apparently US movie studios and the state owned film distributors in China are having a dispute over taxes which the studios say is not in an agreement reached with China through the WTO. So the studios are refusing to pay while the Chinese government are withholding the studios' share of that country's boxoffice receipts. Interesting dispute considering how far the studios has gone n the recent past to appease that country's censors and audience.

    I don't want to see Closed Circuit because it sounds like another run of the mill government conspiracy movie with a twisty bendy pretzel type ending. I'll wait for it to be released on Netflix.

    Closed Circuit is definitely on my list (despite Julia Stiles), but I won't cry if I don't see it on the big screen. To me looked like a twisty-turny-bendy kind of story that I'd rather watch on DVD anyway so I can rewind if necessary.

    For those interested in classic movies, TCM is airing the 1927 Silent Movie Metropolis -- if you haven't seen it, it is/was, for its time, an absolute masterpiece of cinema, and one not to be missed.

    Sorry for the short notice, but it's on tonight at 8:00 PM EDT (basically in a half-hour).

    Re: Charlie Hunnam being cast in 50 Shades of Grey.....I can't help but think he and Travis Fimmel, who are now both sporting a rather scruffy look with beards (Hunnam for SOA, and Fimmel for History Channel's Vikings), look like they were separated at birth.

    Need something both sweet and funny to watch? I've got five I'd recommend:

    Incredible Burt Wonderstone - so this bombed at the box office, but I thought it was a great story about friendship. Like all of the movies I'm talking about in this post, I think it was promoted as a balls-out yuckfest, but it's more of a comedy drama. I found everybody in the cast did a great job and it was good to see something just a little bit different from Jim Carrey. Oh...and Jim's been workin' out!!

    The Guilt Trip - I loved this one! Just enough funny moments and a couple that are heartbreaking. Have some hankies for those moments...and maybe for some of the funny moments when you'll be crying tears! I still think of a few moments in this movie and laugh about them. But I love Streisand, so it was great to see her on my TV screen in a leading role.

    Sweet November - The people who made this movie must have been so grateful to have Charlize Theron present to make up for the fact that Keanu Reeves is also in this movie! He's at his most beautiful here...but he probably should have tried to be the world's most successful male supermodel (so he'd never have to open his monotone mouth). But Theron is so good that you gotta love this movie. And to think that two years later, this same wonderful performer would be in "Monster". And is this REALLY the same woman who would later play the bitter, narcissistic Mavis in Young Adult? And the same woman who played the oh-so-evil queen in Snow White and The Huntsman? Thinking about all these different roles make me struggle to wrap my head around the fact that yes, the same person played these four different characters...!

    Warm Bodies - add me to the list of people who loved this one. A movie with a big heart, one that sneaks up on you and takes you by surprise...in the best possible way.

    Home Fries - I must have seen the wrong Drew Barrymore movies early on because I didn't think much of her, but good lord is she sweet in this one! And Luke Wilson is so handsome, why couldn't he have been my husband back then??? Plus this movie has the hilarious Catherine O'Hara. Can't believe it took me so long to catch this one!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I went to see the aforementioned 'Closed Circuit'. I thought it was better than the critics take.

    I saw a preview before the film that they're remaking 'Carrie'? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_(2013_film)

    Why bother if the original was such a classic? I'm sure Chloe Grace Moretz is a fine actress, but Sissy Spacek in the original role was so perfectly creepy (that alabaster skin and icy blue eyes staring out while covered in blood is one of cinema's iconic moments). I also love Julianne Moore, but I don't think anyone could channel religious nutcase better than Piper Laurie. Both had been Academy Award nominees in 1976 for their roles

    ONE DIRECTION FELL FROM FIRST TO SIXTH PLACE...A 74% DROP!!! I still want to marry you though, Zane. CALL ME!!! Riddick kicked boy butt from the top spot, taking in 19 million. The budget was only 38 million (compared to 120 for The Chronicles of Riddick), so they won't have to worry about making a profit of this one. But I'm not sure this one will make enough to bring about a part four. Probably only if Fast and Furious 13 makes a gazillion dollars and the studio will let Diesel do anything he wants. The Butler holds at #2, it will pass the 100 million mark in a week or two. Instructions Not Included continues it's winning streak, switching places with We're The Millers while being only one of two movies in the top twenty to see a positive change in box office revenue. Anybody seen it yet?

    I was happily surprised with the trailer for Jayne Mansfield's Car, it looks to be like a lot of fun. Blue Caprice has quite an exciting trailer, so it's going on my to see list along with The Informant and GMO OMG. The Informant has me really intrigued...the trailer does exactly what a good trailer should, piques your interest, but doesn't give the whole movie away.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I saw a preview before the film that they're remaking 'Carrie'? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_(2013_film)

    Why bother if the original was such a classic? I'm sure Chloe Grace Moretz is a fine actress, but Sissy Spacek in the original role was so perfectly creepy (that alabaster skin and icy blue eyes staring out while covered in blood is one of cinema's iconic moments). I also love Julianne Moore, but I don't think anyone could channel religious nutcase better than Piper Laurie. Both had been Academy Award nominees in 1976 for their roles
    I think (could be wrong) they are going to try to be closer to the novel and have it be citizen Kane like with interviews and flashbacks.
