    The Trip (edited together from the series of the same name) 4 stars out of 5. A great movie for those who love England, the North, those who enjoy dialogue driven dramedies or have serious issues with the way their careers have turned out.

    The Thin Man (1934) - quite amusing, albeit I found keeping track of who's who a wee bit confusing towards the end.

    Just saw Extremely Loud and Incredably Close. The kid in it did an awesome job acting.

    Saw The Darkest Hour yesterday. Absolutely bloody awful. I'd give it minus 10. It baffles me how movies like this get made.

    I watched it in episodes when it was on TV. It was excellent.

    Everything Must Go: 4 out of 5 stars. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Will Ferrell needs to skip the screwball comedies and focus on slightly quirky dramas and dramedies. Because he really shines in films that don't have him saying lines like "Scotchy, scotch, scotch." Like Stranger Than Fiction, Ferrell turns in a pitch perfect performance. You feel for him but you realize that many of his problems are of his own making. It probably doesn't hurt my appreciation of the film that my father was an alcoholic.

    I have an uncle who's an alcoholic, and although I never saw him when things got bad, I could only imagine that it was like what Ferrell did in that movie.

    I thought he did a perfect job. His usual "immature baby man" schtick was smoothed out just enough that I felt his character was trying to be funny -- often unsuccessfully -- while experiencing his own tragedy. I really felt for the guy.

    I just think that it was a much, much better and smarter movie than anyone would have expected. Will Farrell fans want to see "Scotchy scotch scotch", and non-fans are tired of "Scotchy scotch scotch", so neither of them would have wanted to see it. Although he doesn't crack me up too much anyway (my favorite bit was when he cast his baby girl as his landlord in a homemade vid online), I was totally impressed.

    Terry Pratchett's Going Postal.

    Pretty amusing and they really stayed true to Discworld.

    The Artist. 5/5. An amazing movie. I don't want to give anything away, but think of the dark version of Singin' In The Rain.

    Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (David Fincher one):

    Couldn't hear / understand a lot of the dialogue early on.

    It was longer than necessary. It was ok. It was closer to the novel than the Swedish one.

    Looking forward to Act Of Valor.

    Inception 8/10. Second viewing. I saw it in the theater first. Definitely made a bit more sense the second time but fun regardless.

    One Day - 5 or 6/10. Decent enough movie but























    Spoilers

























    it provided another reason for my wife to be scared about my commuting.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I caught Midnight in Paris the other night. It'd get an 8/10 for production values, but a 4 for the writing. I got the impression that a lot of the dialog had been workshopped or improvised. Which in a movie about a writer, is either a mistake or just bad writing.

    ^intersting. I want to see that one but the only thing holding me back so far is I think Owen Wilson is a doofus.

    5 of 5. Yes it's partially war propaganda but there's no denying 67 years later it holds up far better than many of it's contemporaries. Yes it's not factually that accurate as the Brits did the heavy lifting in india but it's good story, a great cast, it really works. And in my opinion this Errol Flynn's best performance very naturalistic.

    X-Men: First Class. Since it's another of the growing catalog of comics turned into movies (fun for me & my nephew, sometimes daughter too), I didn't expect The Godfather. But then, movies are less about landmark pieces of celluloid history and more about entertainment/diversion.

    I'd give it a 7/10, compared to others of its genre. I had fun with it. (Beat the HELL outta Green Lantern!)
