Surprised to see that the lady in one scene is none other than Julia Ormond. She looked a little...weathered? I remember her in Chocolat with Johnny Depp which was truly an onscreen battle for who was prettier! Depp would win today. Maybe he can afford better work done?
    I think you mean Juliette Binoche was in Chocolate. Ormond and Binoche do look alike.
    thanks for the recommendation, as I was curious about The East.

    Has FSU ever done something funny to your posts? I re-read a previous post of mine and there are three or four words in the post that don't make sense with the sentence they appear in. I felt so stupid reading what I posted! Anyway, tonight I watched Mud with Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. I thought it was quite good although it was slow moving. Matty looked yummy in it. But the best part of the movie in my opinion is the young lead played by Tye Sheridan. I thought he was BRILLIANT and I am very much looking forward to see what his future holds. I think he has the potential to be a young male Dakota Fanning.

    Four nominations and zero wins. I wonder if Moore will become her generation's Glenn Close?

    Has Streep said she is going to retire??

    I have not seen the original as there are 11 copies at the library. I will marry Patrick Huard one day, though.

    "Promised Land"-if you don't know how oil and gas companies/landmen operate, this is a gd basic introduction. Matt Damon and John Kazinski produced, wrote, and star. Frances McDormand plays the "it's just a job" part. Real townspeople and a real pretty little town are featured. See unspoiled land while you still can.

    Am not watching "42:the Jackie Robinson story" due to time constraints. Bad weather is coming and must return movies before it hits. Most likely any future reviews from me will be from my own collection, which I do need to review to pitch. I am not moving all of it sad to say.

    Good pedagogical material indeed, but I found it pretty lame for a Gus Van Sant movie.

    I haven't had time to watch many movies lately, but I liked these 3:
    -Gravity: first time I actually enjoy 3D (Yes, I didn't like it in Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, or Life of Pi).

    -Snowpiercer: Despite several uh moments/facts, I loved many ideas and characters in it.

    -Ender's Game: An ok movie. I didn't like the look of the girl who was much better in True Grit.

    Just watched Poor Boy's Game which stars Danny Gloverland and one of Donald Sutherland's sons. Can't remember his name right now, but he has on the TV show "Reign" right now playing the advisor to the queen (Megan Fellows). Sutherland plays a man who is just getting out of jail for beating a man so badly that the man is now brain damaged (Danny Glover's son). When he gets out of jail, he is challenged to a boxing match where his opponent wants to get revenge for what Sutherland did. I was afraid the movie would become some sort of Charles Bronson-like revenge flick, but it took a higher road and was more thoughtful than that. It's kind of a quieter film and doesn't try too hard to hit you over the head with a message. So I recommend it.

    While "Nebraska" should be a sure bet for a Bruce Dern Oscar nomination for lead actor, I'm going to have to give June Squibb (who plays Dern's wife) a 50-50 shot at a supporting actress nomination as well.

    I've seen three lighter movies lately, all that I recommend.

    Hotel Transylvania was slightly the best, mainly because Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are brilliantly funny in this. I usually don't like Sander and the live action comedy the two recently made looks awful. But they're so great in this! I thought the female lead was voiced by Miley Cyrus so I was surprised to find out that it was Serena Gomez instead. She was great as well.

    Oz The Great And Powerful was pretty good, but I wouldn't call it brilliant. It has some nice moments and it was quite beautiful to watch.

    Brave was even more beautiful than Oz. Some of the visuals are breathtaking and overall it's quite an endearing story.

    Just came back from watching Catching Fire. not nearly as good as the first IMO--the acting was off for almost everyone. Gary Andetson had a much better feel for the it.

    "The Fearless Vampire Killers:Or Pardon Me But Your Teeth Are In My Neck"-in happier days, Roman Polanski directed and stars. He's a terrific actor. This is a comedy. It's pretty funny, dialogue and sight gags galore. A must-see and a can't-part-with.

    I finally watched Thor today... I feel, once again, disappointed.... Are the movies this year underwhelming or is my standard/expectation just getting higher and higher?

    First of all, I felt that the pacing and editing of this movie is horrible... The funeral scene was so beautiful, but I felt it could have been so much better if they fleshed it out more and did not immediately cut to the asylum humour scene. They did this to a couple of other moments throughout the movie. It's almost like they are afraid if the movie gets too serious, people will stop watching.

    Second, parts of the movie felt so haphazard. Like something went wrong in the editing room or something.

    Third, What is with the Loki Odin scene? This movie feels incomplete. Like it's waiting to be explained/fleshed out in the sequel. And that always brings down any movie a notch :<

    Last, and most importantly: Not enough Loki.

    Ps: It's possible that my expectation for this movie was too high because I totally loved the first movie. Plus, the trailer made me think it would be more epic.

    Catching Fire was just effing amazing. I'm still on a high. I think it was just as good as the first one and that the whole cast was totally on, particularly Lawrence, Claflin, and Malone. Whatever I said about Malone being cast, I take it back. She was perfect.

    I am planning on seeing it at least one more time this weekend.

    I thought "Catching Fire" was actually better than "Hunger Games," which I felt was both rushed and lacked the grit it needed. The violence is still pretty down-played compared to the books, but the anger and anxiety coursing through the novels are much better developed here, as are the minor characters in this movie.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
