    Evan Green was so good in Casino Royal (Love the exchanges between her and Bond on their first meeting on the train). It's surprising she hadn't really had any good role since then.

    Another vote of confidence for Moonrise Kingdom - loved that movie! And I didn't care for Royal Tennenbaums either so I wouldn't let that deter you.

    I don't recall seeing a thread about this, but given we were all involved with the olympics at the time, it may have slipped through the cracks, but writer/director/actor Harold Ramis (director of Vacation, co-writer of Animal House, and most famously known as the scientist Egon in Ghostbusters) died on February second .

    *****

    On a different note, I finally got off my fat ass and watched Black Swan a couple of weeks ago. Could someone here please explain to me how that overwrought, clicheed POS of a flick got any type of Oscar nod, much less a win for Natalie Portman? Good lord but it sucked.

    Has anyone seen the English-dubbed version of The wind rises? I saw the movie with subtitles and loved it. I am not fond of dubbing. I prefer the original language, even when I don't understand it. Why was this movie nominated only for animated film? It should have been nominated for Best Picture and/or best foreign language film. In any case it should have won for the best animated film. I am not too surprised it didn't though. It is too artistic and too good.

    The Royal Tenenbaums is a tricky movie, I find. It's definitely one of Wes Andersons harder movies to like. I hated it the first time but liked it the second time. I still haven't seen The Fantastic Mr Fox or The Darjeeling Limited so no opinion on those two, but like I said, Moonrise Kingdom is far and away my favourite Wes Anderson film.

    Apparently the board was having problems. I got a database error even for my test message, so I was surprised to see it here this morning.

    Has anyone seen the dubbed (English) version of 'The wind rises'? I only saw it with subtitles and loved it. I hate dubbing; I love hearing the original language even when I don't understand it. I understand exactly two words of Japanese, but I would rather see it with the subtitles. The actors/voices for the dubbed version are really good -Joseph Gordon Levitt, Emma Watson, Jennifer Gray, etc. So I may go see the movie again, this time with the dubbing.

    It's such a beautiful, artistic, poetic movie. After it ended and the credits rolled, only one couple walked out. Everyone else just sat there, mesmerized. I wish it had gotten the best picture nomination, and I wish it had won the best animated film Oscar (but that's too much to expect from the Oscars, right?)

    I loved, loved, loved Moonrise Kingdom. I also loved Mr Fox but could see that one not being for everyone.

    I keep meaning to give The Royal Tenenbaums a second go -- I wouldn't say I hated it, but it certainly didn't grab me.

    300: Rise of an Empire has won the battle. Well, this weekend's box office battle, anyway. It took in 45 million on a 110 million budget. Probably not the numbers they expected, but this one might do double the box office internationally than it does in the U.S., so I think in the long run. It took in almost 13,000 per theatre on average. One movie did manage to beat that 13,000 figure....at #17, The Grand Budapest Hotel took in...$200,000 per theatre! I can't imagine the last time a movie did such numbers like that. Wes Anderson's movie played in four theatres, so it took in $800,000 and earned a spot in the top twenty...with only four theatres playing his movie. Wow! (By the way, I did place a hold on Moonrise Kindgdom! )

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman debuted at number two with 32.5 million. It played in almost 500 more theatres than 300: Rise of an Empire. And it has a higher budget than that movie, 145 million. Not sure how this one will do internationally. I'm wondering if DreamWorks is not happy with these numbers... 12 Years A Slave jumped back into the top ten after it's Oscar win (from #18 to #9) and took in over two million for a domestic total of 53 million. It has taken in almost double that domestically...90 million. The budget was around the 20 million mark, so everyone must be happy about this project...except maybe the supposedly bickering director and writer!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I'm not surprised Mr Peabody & Sherman didn't have a huge boxoffice opening. It strikes me as a movie without much of a niche -- a lot of the humour seems to be above the heads of the kid audience so it's not an obvious take-the-whole-family movie. And a lot of us who feel nostalgic about taking a trip in the way-back machine will probably wait for it to come out on DVD.

    With Divergent coming out soon, I decided to check out Shailene Woodley in The Spectacular Now. Is was pretty good...but I wouldn't say spectacular. In the DVD directors, the team behind the movie talked about wanting to do a movie about real teens. And they succeeded, but it was more a slice of life movie rather than anything...spectacular. (Sorry to over-using that word!) I thought Miles Teller was great, but his role probably should have been filled by a somewhat better looking actor. It seemed unrealistic for me to think Woodley's character would be so into Teller when she had so much more going for than he did with his life. I recommend the movie though. And it was nice to see Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyle Chandler in smaller roles.

    ^ I had pretty much the same reaction. Though do I completely understand the appeal of Sutter based more on his his (perceived) self-confidence and popularity than a more obvious physical attractiveness.

    She carved out a niche playing over the top, bath*t crazy villains, like Morgana in the Starz series Camelot and Angelique in Dark Shadows. In the former, she basically ate Jamie Campbell Bower alive and she and James Purefoy made the TV explode due to way too much hotness and awesomeness.

    I think the only movie I've seen Shailene Woodley in was The Descendants, and I thought she was really good. She had success at a young age, but she strikes me as very grounded and intelligent.

    I want to see The Wind Rises. I saw the Oscar nominated short films in a theatre this weekend. It's kind of jarring going from intense and sad films to comedy, but it was nice to have a chance to see the shorts, especially since the animated films are so varied and different from Disney. (I actually like some Disney films, but it's good to see different kinds of animation.) But, the "shorts" exhibition was long! Four hours.

    This is prior to Casino Royale, but I thought she was brilliant in Kingdom of Heaven (and that movie itself is much better when you watch the extended version).

    Lots of new movies coming out this week. I was going to poll you all to see who would win the box office this weekend between the Fast and Furious rip-off...or Tyler Perry. Then I calculated the trailer views for the two trailers and it looks like it will be no contest. But I've learned to NEVER count out Tyler Perry!!

    So some thoughts about the trailers...I did not put all the horror trailers at the end because I'm a movie snob. It's just that when I realized a number of movies coming out this week were horror movies, I thought, "good, I'm in the mood for a good horror movie!" And then all those trailers were pretty bad. "Patrick: Evil Awakens" might be better than the trailer leads us to believe, though. Dunno. Not on my To See list. The two documentaries are on my list now (Teenage and Big Men). As is pretty much any movie with Ryan Kwanten because he's just so beautiful! Plus "The Right Kind of Wrong" stars Catherine O'Hara and I'll watch her in pretty much anything also. Ernest & Celestine and On My Way look pretty decent, but not quite good enough to get me to add them to my list. I imagine a number of you will want to watch the trailers for these (at the very least).

    Strong Female Characters Still Underrepresented in Hollywood, New Study Shows
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...racters-687392

    The "It’s a Man's (Celluloid) World" survey, which was released by Martha M. Lauzen, executive director of the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, revealed that women accounted for only 15 percent of protagonists, 29 percent of major characters and 30 percent of speaking characters in the top 100 (domestic) grossing films of 2013.

    Jason Sudeikis Will Fill Chevy Chase’s Shoes in Fletch Won

    I thought the Fletch movie with Chevy Chase was a bomb...but there was two of them according to this article. So maybe only the second one bombed??


    Shia Labeouf won't attend 'Nymphomaniac' premiere
    http://www.tribute.ca/news/index.php...re/2014/03/07/

    Are we going to find out in a year that Shia is making a mockumentary film with a bunch of friends and then be criticized after everyone tells him that Joaquin Phoenix just did that a few years ago?
