    James Stewart was in the second one, not the third one. And I agree -- he really made it worth watching. Only a couple years in Hollywood, and he was already acting circles around some of the old pros.

    I just saw Gravity. It has the Best Visual Effects Oscar in the bag, yes? I find it hard to convince myself that it wasn't actually filmed in space! Also, best use of 3D ever (so far).

    I just have to say, the new Great Expectations (playing in limited release) is freakin' awesome. If it's playing near you and you like period drama, get thee to the theater!

    Bah! Thanks. It's been way to long since I've watched any of The Thin Man movies. Even though we are all in the same house, The Thin Man movies all belong to my parents and I don't raid their collection very often. Most of their movies that I wanted I bought before my failed attempt at moving out. But I never got around to picking up The Thin Man

    I'm not going to do a "this year in movies" post this week, but will continue next week. Until then, what's your favourite Thanksgiving movie?

    Thanksgiving Movies: 21 Films About Turkey Day

    Pieces of April is one I recommend if you're never seen it.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    It's mini-mini-mini Tom Cruise fest this week-the library only had ONE of his films :"Minority Report." I saw it when it was in theatre way back when...and only remembered I saw it because the power went out 3/4 of the through. So. Now I've actually watched it and its like welcome to the hell of our near future. Yikes!!! Let's do all we can to change the future eys! Precrime DOESN'T work!!

    I went to see Thor Friday night with my family. (I'm currently visiting from out of state) We all had a big dinner before and everyone had some wine. Well, 4 out of five of us fell asleep during the movie. Of course we paid for the 3d version.... Family nap time I guess!

    Saw "The Counselor" yesterday. Hmmm for such a big named cast it was pretty ho hum. It would have been better if written and directed by Tarantino.

    Saw Thor and liked it enough but it did not have enough Loki and the very last scene in the movie is a big thumbs down. And there is a bonus scene at the end bit I have no idea what it means. It did have a very big Star Trek vibe to it.

    If you are referring to the scene in the middle of the credits, I believe it has to do with

    Spoiler

    Spoilered for anyone else who hasn't seen it and wants to remain unspoiled.

    I saw Thor last night at really enjoyed it. I had a hard time really liking the first one. But the The Dark World was fun to watch. And I will never say no to anything that involves Christopher Eccleston being on a TV/Movie screen.

    Some action/drama/thrillers I liked:

    Man On A Ledge with Sam Worthington and Jamie Bell. This is the kind of movie people could probably say is shot full of plot holes but I don't get bogged down with details and just go along for the ride. I thought this was pretty smart actually, well-paced and a good ride.

    Red Dawn with Chris Hemsworth. I expected this to be rather stupid, but hoped for stupid fun. And I was right. One to watch when you want a silly adventure movie to relax to on a lazy day.

    Abduction with Taylor Lautner. Pretty much the same as Red Dawn, probably a bit more action-packed with Lautner doing all kinds of wild stunts. The down side to this is that I've never seen the brilliant Sigourney Weaver wasted in a movie as much as she was in this one.

    Shock of all shocks, Thor debuted at #1 this week! It took in 86 million domestically and 109 million, so the 170 million production budget is already covered in one weekend. I smell profit! The only other debuts of note are way down at #28 and #31 (The Book Thief and Great Expectations). But The Book Thief opened in only four theatres, taking in $26,251 per theatre. Great Expectations failed to live up to it’s name, at 86 theatres it only took in just over $1,000 per theatre. Almost a “straight-to-DVD” release… 

    Bad news also for Ender’s Game, dropping from #1 to #5 with a -62% decrease in box office. Good news for some smaller movies taking some jumps in box office: 12 Years A Slave (+39%), All Is Lost (+111%), Dallas Buyer’s Club (+145%) and About Time with a whopping +342%.

    Really slim pickings for new movies coming out this week. The release of Wolf of Wall Street has been pulled (new date is December 25th). I’m thinking this is a good thing as it’ll come out closer to Oscar consideration time. So the people behind “Nebraska” moved their movie up one week to avoid The Hunger Games weekend. (I doubt this one will do much at the box office regardless of when it was released.) Other than the so-so Best Man Holiday trailer, the only movie that interested me at all is Geography Club. Lots of talent in the other movies, but they look like they all suck!

    I've been watching Dr. Zhivago over the last week. Partly because it IS a long movie and partly because I found it somewhat slow. Is this sacreligious? Sharif has a presence on screen that draws him toward you, I guess he was the highlight of the movie for me. Not sure why he didn't have a bigger career, I should go check imdb or wikipedia or something to see what happened. Maybe his ethnicity limited his options in the 70's?? Dr. Zhivago has a pretty high rating at imdb (7.9) so I guess I'm in the minority of people not caring too much for this movie. I'm glad I saw it as it's regarded as a classic in the entertainment world, but it's not one I'll be watching again.

    Not surprising -- I think their promotional budget was about 75 cents. It's really too bad. Even opening against Thor, I think it could have done okay with a little promotion.

    Count me as another lover of Down with Love. Such delightful, tongue-in-cheek fun, and utterly gorgeous to look at. I still giggle thinking about those split-screen phonecall scenes.
