Finally got around to watching "The Happening" by M. Night Shyamalan.
Beginning was good, middle was good but ending was kind of flat. Which
surprised me for a Shyamalan flick. Usually, the ending is where you see
the "twist" for his movies. 6/10.

"Inception"

Bloated and humorless. I get it. A dream within a dream within a dream. Zzzzzzz.

6/10

I loved Inception. Best movie of 2010 so far. Very interesting ideas (no, not just "a dream within a dream within a dream", but to each his own) such as death within dreams, madness, the nature of reality + reality being subjective, learning from your own subconscious via dreams + lucidity, etc. Great performances by DiCaprio and Cotillard, likable supporting characters, great effects and a seriously memorable fight-scene in shifting gravity. Oh and, cinematically, one of the greatest ending scenes in recent memory.

9.5/10

If you enjoy well done and funny foreign films, try "Kamikaze Girls." I watched this based on a single review on a website I stumbled upon, the only reference I've ever found, and it knocked my socks off. Imagine "Rebel Without a Cause" performed by the cast of Scrubs.

inception-8.5

Invention of Lying. 4/10. Great premise, some funny moments, and lots of great cameos, but ultimately it just falls flat. I usually enjoy Ricky Gervais's stuff, but this isn't his best work.

Saw Clash of the Titans last night. eh pretty average 5/10

dewaday 07-30-10 05:27 PM

Inception- 7/10 It's an action flick, with some really cool visuals, lots of exposition, some silliness, some soul, and a soundtrack that made me want to shoot the next trombonist I see.

Winter's Bone- 9/10 Best acting I've seen in a long time. Great look and feel (if you like that sort of thing, was shot with the Red One Digital System). Raw and honest, I lived in their skin for 90 minutes.

Predators. 7/10

Mindless violence with Predators is excellent. Needed more of that ugly Mexican bloke and the Yakuza dude to have received a higher score.

Saw Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief with my kids this weekend. It was better than I thought it would be based on the reviews 6-7/10

RUOkie 08-04-10 12:31 PM

Saw Dinner for Schmucks last weekend.

The first 40 min were painfully awkward. If I had watched on DVD, I likely would have turned it off. But it wasn't bad enough to leave. Then the last hour was non stop laughter, to the point that my face hurt. So I really don't know, it was like 2 different movies.

Zach Galifanakis and Jemaine Clement stole the show.

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus- Pretty cool if a little long and disjointed, but that's why we love Gilliam, plus Tom Waits as Ol' Scratch. 7.5/10

Pulse (the japanese version)- Just not sure on this one, gonna see what a re-watch brings. There's a lot there and there's some nothing there. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but I wavered between laughing at some of the histrionics and being honestly creeped out at some of the ideas. ?/10

The Road- Held off watching this because I'm a huge McCarthy fan. Disappointed, not because it wasn't good but because it pales next to the book and I knew it would. I think only Kubrick, with a serious budget and ample time could maybe have coaxed the necessary horror through poetry required to truly portray the novel. Why they're trying Blood Meridian just makes my head hurt. As a stand alone movie- 8/10 Compared to the novel- 5/10.

Last night I watched the Blake Edwards classic.."10", with Dudley Moore and Julie Andrews, and introducing Bo Derek. Smart, funny writing, and plenty of beautiful scenery...I give it 10 (so, 10 squared?)

I always laugh when I see that 8-track player in the dash of the Rolls Royce convertible.

Public Enemies 3/10. Depp was good (as always) but Cotillion and Bale were wooden. The shake-cam (for docu-realism effect?) was annoying. And in the end, you just didn't care whether Dillinger would get away or not.

dewaday 08-15-10 05:22 PM

Restrepo- If you want to see war and warriors in their simple complexity, rather then the complex simplicity usually portrayed on screen, this one's for you. An honest look at a chasm between cultures that is deeper then the valley's fought over. A year in the farthest outpost in Afghanistan, you can't help think maybe Kurtz was right. Real life, real.

Outsourced

Wonderful romantic comedy, 2nd time I've seen it, won't be the last.

I recently read about that one. Definitely want to see it.

Very good.

Toy Story 3 - 8/10. It's a perfect ending to this series. I really cried when they were all preparing to be separated, and Woody was in the "College" box, and the others were in the "Attic" box. I cried again when Andy donated the toys to the girl, and even told her about their history and personalities. Really worth a watch!

BarracksSi 08-27-10 12:30 PM

The Expendables - 3/10, maybe 2. You know it's getting tired when they run out of ideas for how to kill bad guys. Even Jet Li's fighting style was demolished by the super-quick editing. My fiancée wanted to see it, yet she gave it one star.

When I listen to Boston's Hitch A Ride, I still get thrown off when the LP/DVD doesn't fade out/fade back in (with reprise) and change track in mid-song. Miss my Craig Power Play--still have a few 8-tracks stashed.




Just got the new Akira Kurosawa boxset. Sanshiro Sugata--8/10, haven't watched it since Blockbuster phased out VCR.

David Mamet's Redbelt--7/10 Good martial arts fare, although with the slight hokiness from trying to be too cool as seems Mamet's wont.
