Here is the link if anyone would like to check it out : http://www.cinefamily.org/films/studio-ghibli/

    Sorry I posted this late, the screening ends June 1st. I just found this thread.
    I will be at Nausicaa but it's this Saturday, not June 1st. I would also like to see Mononoke on June 3rd, but I will have spent 10 hours at Cinefamily the previous day watching Satantango. So that may not happen.

    Oh yes I was getting confused with dates Nausicaa is this sat at 7:30 & 10:30 and Princess Mononoke is June 1st at 7:30 & 10:30 ( not June 3rd) :P

    The calendar has updated times for Mononoke due to the recently-added Damsels in Distress run. Mononoke is at 10:30 on 6/1 and 7:30 on 6/3.

    Whoa. Jack White's cover of U2's "Love is Blindness" from "The Great Gatsby" trailer is frickin' phenomenal.

    You can listen to the whole thing here.

    Also, I watched "The Five Year Engagement" today (free ticket) and found it insufferably long and dreary in a lot of parts. Some cute/funny moments, but probably the worst I've seen from the Apatow clan. Jason Segal looked a bit Jabba the Huttish, too. His face looked giant and splotchy next to Emily Blunt's near-perfect complexion. Blunt even made Alison Brie look ho-hum. Movie stars.

    Yeah, I don't know who thought doing a 2 hour romcom would be a good idea. They needed to cut 20 to 30 minutes and it would have been alright. There were some funny moments and some of the San Francisco stuff was filmed about a mile from my house which made it a little more enjoyable. I did like Brie's british accent though.

    Silly of me to assume I'd be able to see Moonrise Kingdom this weekend. Guess I'll have to wait or catch when I'm down in Hollywoodland.

    Wrong. Funny People was way worse.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I haven't seen The Five Year Engagement and won't be attempting to, but even though it's from the same Apatow sub-clan, I can't imagine its worse than Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

    An hour drive to the closest theater playing it, the Arclight hollywood. Holiday weekend traffic + ticket prices... I'll just wait on it.

    True. Also, if anyone is a stickler - the Arclight shows are all digitally projected. The Landmark, on the other hand, is only showing it in 35mm. I feel like this movie, shot in Super16, needs to be seen in an environment where the textural elements can be best appreciated.

    EDIT: I say this as someone who generally prefers Arclight to The Landmark by a wide margin.

    'Pixote' was sad, but beautiful and pure. Youthful encounters getting over the deceased relationships quickly. No wonder the acclaim.

    I really didn't see the tie-in for a coors light/Prometheus ad, but now that I think about it they're both representative of the beginning stages of something horrible, and frightening to come.

    Tonight, the TallGuy household held an '80s double feature (both first-time viewings) of Robocop and Labyrinth.

    I really loved Labyrinth, the sheer amount of imagination and creativity that went into it was pretty amazing. Y'all are crazy in regards to Robocop though. I mean, I liked it well enough, I just don't see exactly what everyone loves about it so much.

    I think Robocop is a big nostalgia trip. I remember it being on a couple times when I was younger and thinking it was just crazy insane awesome, and now I only like watching it with my Dad since he pumps it up so much while we watch.

    Its just one of those "yeah, badass movie" but you move along deals for me.

    My opinion of the Cannes awards based on having seen absolutely none of what played there:

    Palme d'Or: Amour (Michael Haneke) - weak
    Grand Prix: Reality (Matteo Garrone) - weak
    Prix du Jury: The Angel's Share (Ken Loach) - no comment
    Best Director: Carlos Reygadas, Post Tenebras Lux - FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Best Screenplay: Cristi Mungiu, Beyond the Hills - approved
    Best Actress: Cosmina Stratan and Christina Flutor, Beyond The Hills - approved
    Best Actor: Mads Mikkelsen, The Hunt - approved
    Camera d'Or: Beasts of the Southern Wild (Benh Zeitlin) - excited to see this

    Also, my first dance with Miyazaki was a resounding success. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is incredibly awesome.

    I thought Beyond the Hills looked awful. I didn't like Gomorrah but think Reality looks interesting.

    and it goes without saying that Haneke and Reygadas have my attention.

    Really? What did you see of Hills? I've only seen a few brief isolated clips and I have really high hopes (obviously motivated by his last one).

    Gomorrah sucks - one of the most overrated films of recent years. I like the story about the lead actor from Reality having to be granted a prison work release to shoot his scenes, but it sounds like the movie has an exceedingly obvious point of view.

    I've been saying on Twitter all week that the negative reviews of Post Tenebras Lux - and there have been dozens of them - only make me want to see it more. Really hoping this prize helps them get a US distributor.

    I saw a trailer for Beyond the Hills a couple months back in the theater. Also the clips online. I haven't heard anything reassuring about it either. I loved 4 Months... but don't have high expectations for this one.

    And Amour looks a bit different (and also very similar), so I'm excited to hear your thoughts.

    I keep hearing Bresson comparisons on Beyond the Hills, and that couldn't be more perfectly timed to pique my interest.
