    It is the West Memphis Three story, based on Mara Leveret's book of the same title.

    Spoiler alert: there is no tiger in this movie. Not one.

    Seriously though ... I thought it was a very good movie, very intimate, very immediate. And I'm still baffled as to how Redford didn't get an Oscar nomination, he was superb. It was, though, more of a technical movie than a story, IMO.

It's pretty good, it almost lost me at the 1/3rd mark, but it really picked up after that. Plus there's cameos from Geena Davis and Cameron Diaz, the former who the world of movies needs to invite back into their world!!!
    For a first project as director/writer, I thought Lake Bell did pretty well, though it trended more towards fluffy romantic comedy rather than commentary on the entertainment industry in the second half.


    A foreign movie that probably should have had more distribution in North America this winter is the Japanese movie "Like Father Like Son" from Hirokazu Koreeda, which only made it to 35 theatres continent wide. I believe this film was released too late to be in the running as Japan's entrant for the Best Foreign Film at the Oscars, though it did grab a Golden Globe nomination. Keep in mind that Steven Spielberg has already bought the rights to produce the English remake of this film, but still not filming dates and casting details have been announced.

    There are so many movies that I'm going to split them into two posts. The first includes those already mentioned earlier in the thread (in bold), followed by seven that are going on my To See list. Some quick comments about those seven at the end of this post.

    Birder's Guide to Everything - Looks sweet and funny in a week of a LOT of dramas
    Anita - This looks very intense. I did not follow this trial, so I know very little about what Anita Hill went through
    Blood Ties - Might be too intense for me, but I can't so no to a movie with this cast
    It Felt Like Love - This one really took me by surprise. I thought it might be a pretentious European film, but it looks like a startling, powerful drama
    Rob the Mob - This one looks like a lot of fun and brilliantly directed
    Cheap Thrills - Not sure if I'll end up loving or hating this one, but it looks very original
    Maladies - At first I thought this was going to be one of Franco's meandering art projects, but it looks very intriguing!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Now just because these aren't on my To See list, it doesn't mean I think they'll be bad movies. But some of them will be, I'm sure! Thoughts again at the end.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gdxzno5Xp2Y
    5 million views

    Just a Sigh - I almost put this one my list, it looks interesting, but a bit too quiet in tone overall
    John Doe: Vigilante - Looks good, but the subject matter is too dark for me, I need lighter stuff these days
    McCanick - Another dark movie. I wanted to put it on my list because Cory Monteith is one of the stars, but he's barely in the trailer
    50 to 1 - This one will probably go on my To See list, not because it looks like an amazing movie, but because it might feature some hot cowboys
    Stay - I love Taylor Schilling but this one looks like SUCH a quiet movie...quiet to the point of being comatose...
    God's Not Dead -
    The Missing Picture - Might be an interesting movie...but not by this trailer!!
    Nymphomaniac: Volume I - Lars Von Trier started out his career so well with some brilliant, important movies. But he's using his films for his own personal therapy sessions and that's both blech and irresponsible.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    My most recent viewing is a movie called The Eclipse. It is about a widower who volunteers at an annual literary festival in his hometown. He hasn't gotten over leaving his wife and his father-in-law is in poor health. He has images of both and it is unclear if these are dreams or something else. Two of the authors he chaperones have not just a personal connection, but both write books that involve the supernatural. The movie explores the ways the lives of these three people intertwine with a supernatural background to make it all just a little more complicated! It stars Ciaran Hinds and Aidan Quinn and I've seen the female lead before, but can't place her. She's great though, as are the two male leads.

    I hadn't heard about this one, but it looks like fun. Ben Kingsley is one of those people who makes me more interested in a movie when I see he is in the cast. I can't remember him ever giving a bad performance or being in a bad movie.

    Just noticed that one of our local theatres is playing The Lunchbox, which is an absolutely charming film from India. I saw it at the VIFF this year in a capacity theatre with 3 levels and the entire audience with all demographics was completely transported. It's a very sweet narrative about a lonely man and a lonely woman whom find connection through a mis-delivered lunchbox. The power of food. And Imagination.

    I heard that The Lunchbox was considered as the nominee for consideration for the best foreign film category of the Academy Awards. It's one of the best movie going experiences I've had in the last couple of years.


    I saw the Lego movie and loved it as well. Such a fun time at the theatre.

    Can't wait, just out of my mind excited about Grand Budapest Hotel. Moonrise Kingdom was my fave film of the year it came out.

    Bad performance, no. Definitely not capable. Bad movie ... yes, unfortunately. (Although that of course is subjective.) The Love Guru was completely, embarrassingly awful. The Dictator and Prince of Persia were drek too, IMO. And I quite liked Sneakers but a lot of others hated it (and it was a bomb at the box office IIRC). The guy's done over 100 movies, they can't all be Ghandi and Shindler's List.

    I missed The Lunchbox when it played at VIFF so I'm happy it's getting wider release. Hoping to find a place to see this soon before it disappears (tho you'd think the huge Indo-Canadian population here in Vancouver would encourage movie theatre managers to keep it on the screens for a while ...).

    It also stars Irfan Khan, one of my favourite Indian actors -- North Americans might remember him as the adult Pi in Life of Pi, as well as from a season of In Treatment.

    I just came back from the Lego Movie. IT WAS AWESOME!

    It's cute enough for kids, but I chortled at the beginning where there were a lot of subtle themes that adults would tooootally get.

    I've been a fan of Kevin Zegers ever since Transamerica, so I was happy to get a copy of "The Colony" from the library. It doesn't have a very high rating on imdb.com, but I thought it was a pretty decent escape movie. A post-apocalyptic tale where the Earth has been plunged into below zero temperatures and people are living underground with limited connection with other colonies in their area. They lose contact with the closest colony and a group travel through the cold to find out what has happened. The movie co-stars Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton. I found it a fairly fun way to spend an evening with some good snacks!

    What about the part in the trailer where Anthony Hopkins rallies all his warrior/bad-guy buddies to wage a war against Noah? I haven't memorized the Bible, but I don't recall anything like this being part of the Norah story...

    I watched "Beowulf" this afternoon. Grrrrreat cheezy fun in an interesting visual style. Plus it's a really compelling legend. Loved the lol dialogue. A new sekret cult fav film for me :-)
    Have a nice day!

    I had forgotten about that bit. I'm not one to tell people they can't take artistic license, but I really do think when someone is making a movie like this, it really is meant to appeal to a very large, very specific group of people and the production company would, in theory anyway, want to stop that so as not to risk ticking off a significant portion of the potential audience.

    I kind of wondered. The trailer wasn't optimistic. They couldn't even find lines from the hot obvious boyfriend type guy that were delivered convincingly to put in the trailer. I considered it for Kate Winslet. I don't think I've seen her play a villain before. But I'll wait until I can watch it for free.

    Last night watched American Psycho. Obviously had heard a lot of about it because of the book (I worked in a library at the time it came out so it was big news and we had to only issue it out to people over 18).

    I did find it one of those confusing movies where you had to suspend disbelief between the story and the characters own imagination. I love Christian Bale as an actor and I really liked the way he played the character. This kind of person who talks in narrative rather than conversation because he was meant to be a commentary on the 80s. But maybe I found the whole thing between his imagination and what was reality wasn't clean cut or needed to be more clearly explained or defined for it to make sense. I can appreciate a director deciding to do that but still I thought it sometimes got a bit silly as well.

    Has anyone else seen it? What did you think?

    I saw Jodorowsky's Dune yesterday. Documentaries are not something I watch in theatres normally but I had to see this one because I was eager to see just how much more messed up Jodo's vision for Dune was than David Lynch's. And while Dune devotees would not have appreciated the changes to the story, I would have loved to have seen this just to see the fortress shaped like Orson Welles as Baron Harkonnen and Dali as the Emperor and Mick Jagger as Feyd Reutha.

    The beauty of this documentary is that had the film been made, it would probably have been a box office disaster. But the whole creative process to plot the story and make the storyboards influenced so much of Hollywood in later films. HR Giger, for example,had never worked on films before Dune, but he ended up appropriating his unused Dune concepts for Alien.

    A favorite Bale performance. Was discussing this one just Friday with a colleague. Yes, it's ridiculous, silly, downright outrageous - loved it.

    The new Muppet movie was cute. Not quite as good as the previous one -- the songs, in particular, weren't as good -- but a lot of fun nonetheless. And I spotted Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Bonneville, and Josh Groban all by myself, so I'm pretty pleased with myself right now. (Ordinarily I'm not that good at celebrity cameos.)
