    I'm willing to pay theatre prices to see "all is lost." The other film I'd like to see -"12 years a slave"-I'm willing to wait til the dvd comes out. All those other films don't particularly interest me.
    Have a nice day!

    Lots of films coming out that interest me, but none that I'll be rushing to see in the theatres. I had had The Fifth Estate on my list of big-screen films, but the early reviews are pretty bad. I'll still see it (I must, must watch everything with Benedict Cumberbatch!) but I'll probably now wait for DVD.

    I was outside enjoying the fall sunshine for most of the long weekend, but still managed to watch 4 movies on DVD after the sun went down. All good ones too.

    Any Day Now -- a same-sex parental rights story with Alan Cumming. Who is the main reason this film worked as well as it did. That, and the script decisions to keep things small and focussed, rather than big and Hollywood. (Oh, and Cumming can sing!)

    In the House -- a French film that's partly a student-teacher mentorship story, part voyeuristic psychological thriller. If you like to be kept guessing by a film, this one's for you. This one will stay with me for a while.

    The Sapphires -- completely predictable, but it doesn't really matter because it's just so entertaining. Great performances, and some fantastic singing. I'm going to try to track down the soundtrack for this one.

    The Kings of Summer -- a coming of age story with a twist. The three young leads were all excellent, I expect great things from them in the future. And some unconventional parts for the familiar faces in the adult characters. A real sleeper gem.

    I really enjoyed The Sapphires. Definitely predictable, but very entertaining and a lovely feel good film

    Not really a movie but it's happening in the movie theatres so ... anyone else planning on going to the National Theatre Live screening of M*cbeth? Tomorrow night at selected Cineplex theatres in Canada (with repeats on Oct 19 and 23), and various dates in the US.

    I'm actually a teensy bit bored with Branagh's Shakespeare interpretations, but he didn't direct this one , and from the trailers the production looks amazing. Plus The Scottish Play is one of my faves, and Alex Kingston as Lady M. should be great.

    Is M*cbeth based on the play, "Macbeth"?

    I know it's only within the theatre that you can't say the name ... but IMO, you can't be too careful with a curse. Esp. this close to Halloween. Even typing it could bring about dire consequences!

    I have updated my district registration, am meeting my quotas, and am on the lookout for subversive activity. But now President Snow is sending me advice about the latest Capital fashions.

    This past week I watched two old(er) movies and three recent documentaries.

    Captains Courageous (1937, with Spencer Tracy, Freddie Bartholomew, Lionel Barrymore, Melvyn Douglas, John Carradine and Mickey Rooney) - It was interesting to see Mickey Rooney in such a small role compared to Bartholomew as Rooney is so well known now and Bartholomew is kind of a footnote. Interesting to have the TCM people inform me that Freddie was a major box office draw for a couple of years, maybe the #1 box office draw at one time? (Who knew there was a male Shirley Temple? Well, a non-singing one, anyway!) Always great to see Tracy on screen, even with a questionable Portugese accent/characterization. A pretty good film overall.

    The Lion In Winter (1968, with Peter O'Toole, Katharine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins and Timothy Dalton) - I found the first half-hour to be a lot of loud, fast-paced yammering, but then when it slowed down a bit (if only momentarily), I found myself quite drawn into the story. At first I was thinking, `Streisand had to share her Oscar win with THIS performance of Hepburn`s``, but later in the movie, Hepburn had opportunity to show more than one dimension to her character, so I felt the Oscar tie was one of the best Oscar decisions the Academy ever made. I`m not sure if I was more impressed by the performance of Hopkins or Dalton, the latter in his only second screen role and holding his own quite well with O`Toole. Hopkins had a few nice slightly understated moments which I found surprising considering so much of his later stuff to be fairly mannered or just over-the-top. I was kind of disappointed in O`Toole, he seemed to be trying WAY too hard.

    A Place At The Table - About hunger in America. Decent, but when one Doctor mentions that the issue of enough food is not the issue, not even the distribution of food is the issue, but that too many people working at below a living wage, there`s problems. I felt this comment hit the nail on the head, but the filmmakers must have felt otherwise as they did not continue on this path.

    Revolution - Made by the guy who made Sharkwater. About the pollution of the world`s oceans and how if the current polluting continues, in a matter of decades there could be disastrous changes for all life. Gorgeously filmed and a little all-over-the-place, but an enjoyable viewing overall.

    Kumare - The filmmaker admits during the movie that he started this project with an entirely different focus. So at times it feels like there`s parts missing, maybe because once he changed gears, he didn`t know exactly where he was going, so he didn`t have a specific ending in mind. Had to take some time off to figure things out and then go back to try to wrap things up in a nice enough little bow. Oh, the focus at the beginning was to do a documentary about charlatains in various religions and one part about taking on the persona of one fictional guru became the movie`s focus. Interesting idea, but because things happened on the fly, one is left feeling somewhat uneasy with things he does, specifically gaining trust in those looking for greater meaning in life and taking advantage of their openness. This one is worth a movie, but I think now I feel his irresponsibility has at least some level abusiveness, which he doesn`t really own and-or apologize for....
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
