    I saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty this weekend. I loved it. Personally, I think it was better than half the movies nominated for best picture this year.

    RIP Gordon Willis.
    I just re-watched Manhattan and man that darkly lit new york skyline while woody allen and his young gf ride that horse carriage are so beautiful. Also those dark museum shots that suddenly transition to the mustang driving through new york is really great. I've never been to new york city but man can i really dream from those black and white shots.

    Yeah, opinions are all over the place on this. I think people expected to LOL at Ben Stiller and they got more of a movie with heart. Reminded me a lot of Stranger Than Fiction, which a lot of Will Ferrell fans were like "What? Ewww!" about but I quite liked. I also quite enjoyed Walter Mitty.

    There was absolutely nothing about those trailer that made it look like it was even a comedy. If anything it's looked overly ernest and sentimental and definitely drove me away form wanting to see it - and I am generally a big fan of the movies Stiller directs. he makes surprisingly very good-looking movies.

    Really, really, ridiculously good-looking?

    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 agree with that. But there are a lot of people who go see a movie (or rent a DVD) and have never even seen the trailer for it. They see a name like Ben Stiller or Will Ferrell and think "hilarious!" Then they sit through Stanger Than Fiction or Mitty and get mad. And Mitty starts off funny-like, with his flights of fancy as a hero and whatnot... before it changes focus to largely something else. Yes, a movie with a heart. And a good soundtrack.

    Godzilla only got good at the end. Turned to some poetic filmmaking after a previous 90% shitshow. It could have been a short Oscar contender if you cut the fat.

    Agreed, Stranger Then Fiction is actually my favorite Ferrell movie because it so different then anything else he has done.

    As far as Mitty goes it's by far one of the best cinematography movies I've seen. That was just mind blowing and worth seeing for that alone. However it reminded me a lot of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in that all the technical aspects of the movie were amazing but the story line just really didn't do much for me.

    Godzilla has been successful enough that Gareth Edwards has just been offered one of the Star Wars spin-off movies.

    I've never been a huge Jude Law fan (loved him in Gattaca and Closer, but not much else, and both of those are a long time ago), but he's a fucking force of nature in Dom Hemingway. The film starts with him in prison at the tail-end of a 12-year sentence, soliloquizing about the power of his cock while receiving a blowjob from a fellow inmate and ends with a heart-rending confession over his ex-wife's grave. It's a story of half-hearted redemption and full-bore revenge, and now I guess I have to reevaluate Law's career to figure out what I've missed.

    Would rather see it offered to Gareth Evans.

    It seems he's officially on board and it's being written by the same jizzburps that wrote Book of Eli and After Earth. Might as well make a fucking LOBOT spin-off at this point.


    Drinkey, i'm interested to know what you thought of Godzilla

    I haven't gotten a chance to see it yet, but I am going to put in a major effort to actually see it in theaters.

    He's absolutely smashing in two Anthony Minghella films: Cold Mountain and The Talented Mr. Ripley. I also saw his Henry V on stage in London last year and he was pretty damn electrifying.


    I was in NY for work last week and caught a screening of James Gray's The Immigrant. I think it's also open in LA now. One of the most beautifully shot films I've seen in years with a deliberate, unforced pace, a really compelling story and, at it's heart, a magnificent performance from Marion Cotillard. I think it's probably the best thing she's done yet - and, man, was she was just born to be on screen - just radiant. I have to admit I've never seen any of James Gray's other films. Will have to check out We Own the Night and Two Lovers soon. Hope they're as good!

    I really admire the way Spike Jonze directs. I liked the actors but I had trouble with the plot. When I saw it in theaters a couple actually left during the first phone sex scene. The ending was garbage.. no closure at all. A few of my friend's say they loved it so I guess it rubs some people the right way.
