    Just watched The Book Thief. Not the greatest book adaptation, but also not the worst I would say. It felt rushed and flat in some parts, and parts of the storyline were changed unnecessarily IMO. But I loved the actors; they had great chemistry as a cast. Rudy I found especially endearing, and I loved Max.

    Ride Along handily hangs onto the #1 spot on the box office chart. In seventeen days, it's made over 92 million dollars. And January is not known to be a big box office month. Frozen jumps from #4 back up to #2 and is now past the 350 million mark. For international box office, Frozen has taken in over 460 million. Frozen 2, anyone?? The two debuts on the chart are That Awkward Moment at #3 and almost nine million in revenue and Labor Day at #7, taking in five million. Good news for the former as the budget is only 8 million, but not so good news for Labor Day which has an 18 million budget. Josh Brolin had been a hot streak, but with this and Oldboy, he's having a rough go of things at the movie theatres. I still want him to be my husband. Lastly, two moves have surpassed the 100 million mark: Lone Survivor and The Wolf of Wall Street.

    He won an Oscar for 'Judgment at Nuremberg' and was nominated for two other Oscars, The Man In The Glass Booth (1975) and Julia (1977).

    I was thinking yesterday about the bad news travel in three thing. Pete Seeger, Philip Seymour Hoffman. I wondered who's next?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I have been planning on watching Judgment at Nuremberg for months now. I even ordered it through Netflix once but didn't have the time to watch it. Now I have extra motivation to order it again. I had seen 'Julia' but don't remember any of it.

    Not sure if this should be in the RIP thread or this one, but it seems PSH's death will not impact Mockingjay part I but part II still had one week of shooting remaining. The producers are confident that they can make it work, for the two release dates - Nov. 2014 (part I) and Nov. 2015 (part II). They may have to make some changes to part II because of the tragedy, without changing the story of course. CGI will help.

    I had read that when James Dean died before the 'Giant' was completed, they had to use some creative ways to insert him to complete the movie. IIRC they had to use someone else's voice for his lines. There was no CGI those days.

    The ten are: Labor Day, Mud, Frances Ha, Stories We Tell, Don Jon, Short Term 12, Blue Is The Warmest Color, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Spectacular Now and The Place Beyond the Pines.
    Of that list I'd pick Short Term 12 as my favourite. I just watched it on the weekend and thought it was phenomenal. The epitome of what an indie film can be: a very personal story that felt universal. The writing and the acting hit the right notes throughout. I can't say enough good things about this movie. I'd put it ahead of several of the Oscar-nominated best pictures this year.

    Of the others:
    ~ Frances Ha I liked very much, but I'm not sure I'd put it on my best-of list.
    ~ The Stories We Tell was fascinating, but in the end I felt let down because Sarah Polley herself was an observer rather than a participant, and I wanted to hear more from her.
    ~ The Place Beyond the Pines was surprisingly effective, very engaging in the moment but not particularly memorable. And it was severely marred by Emory Cohen's appalling acting (how does this kid still get gigs? he's soooo bad).
    ~ Mud was good just because of the young leads, especially Tye Sheridan; McConaughey was doing his same-old schtick, and the story was less than inspired.
    ~ Blue is the Warmest Color I found to be hugely over-rated, sensationalistic and exploitative.

    I'm in the library queue for The Spectacular Now, should get that one soon, and will definitely see Labor Day and Walter Mitty when they come out on DVD. I'd heard a lot of negative reviews initially for Don Jon but the tide changed on that one, so I'll probably see it too.

    Lots of new movies this week. I'm actually adding all of the first nine to my To See list except for Vampire Academy. Unless some of you see it and rave about it. Cavemen looks sexy (Chad Michael Murray...whoa!), Kids for Cash looks like a great documentary and The Pretty One and Love & Air Sex both look charming. And I love funny women so I have to check out Welcome to the Jungle and Someone Marry Barry because I adore Kristen Schaal and Judy Punch.

    I started watching the TV series Orphan Black last year, so I was happy to see a Tatiana Maslany movie at the library, Grown Up Movie Star. It's a pretty decent drama about a family whose mother/wife leaves at the beginning as she's completely miserable and how the father/dad and his two daughters try to make things work as a family in spite of various obstacles that come their way. Maslany's role doesn't allow her to do a tiny fraction of what she's given to do in Orphan Black, but she's a watchable movie star that makes the most she can with this role. The father is played by Shawn Doyle who is very handsome and is probably most famous for playing Joey Henrickson in the tv show Big Love.

    I just finished watching Un Prophete and I think I should have paid attention for the last quarter. I should probably re-watch it so I understood what actually happened

    Spoiler

    but this has been an exhausting week and I just don't have it in me. Maybe in a few years when someone I know raves about it and suggests we watch it, I'll say, "okay, cool! This time I'm going to pay attention!"

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Hey...nobody is posting in the movie thread anymore. Is there some big event or something happening that I should be aware of??

    Saw this online this morning:

    Paul Walker Leaves $25 Million Estate to Daughter
    http://ca.celebrity.yahoo.com/blogs/...132752779.html

    The article mentions that his daughter began living with Paul two years ago. It's sad that he died so young and left such a young daughter, but it made me a little happier to know they had these last two years together before his passing. I hope his parents are able to help her use the money wisely. Sometimes when a young person comes into a fortune it causes more harm than good.

    I think it's just the dead zone right now. With the exception of The Lego Movie not a lot of good movies are coming out right now. Plus with the Olympics right now I imagine a lot of people will be watching the games.

    [QUOTE=watchthis!!;4145440]Hey...nobody is posting in the movie thread anymore. Is there some big event or something happening that I should be aware of??
    /QUOTE]

    You may be correct - some international sporting event or another.

    Recent viewings:

    Nebraska - enjoyed it. Some touching and funny moments. Dern and Squibb were very good.
    2014 Oscar nominated shorts - Live Action. I wish the Documentary shorts film was playing in my area. Not a big fan of animated film.

    On DVD, been on a Christian Bale bender. He's quickly rising to the top of my favorite current actors list. I've seen Empire of the Sun, The Machinist, The Fighter, and currently watching The Prestige in chunks (Olympics) :-)

    So disappointed to see the poor reviews for Monuments Men. The cast and premise made it look so promising. I will see it anyway and decide for myself.

    I caught up with Gravity yesterday. I thought it was stunning to look at, but in such an obviously too perfect, CG way that the film was robbed of the emotional impact it should have. Wonderful to look at, but forgotten by this morning. JMHO. YMMV.

    Saw 'Blue Jasmine' this afternoon. It was just OK. Cate Blachett was very good, but I am not sure why she is considered such a sure bet for the best actress Oscar. I think others are very good too (I have not seen Philomena yet, but since it's Judi Dench, I am assuming that she is stellar in it).

    Saw Monuments Men this weekend, which was

    It is a serious topic that was done in a very fluffy manner, with random serious, depressing scenes that felt completely out of place. It's a really interesting story, but it seemed lie nothing happened. And the acting is sub part. Don't waste your money.

    oh im sorry to hear that, i was really looking forward to it. but when they delayed the opening, all signs did point to mediocre.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
