    Yep, this was my main complaint after seeing the first one. Couldn't tell who was fighting who.
    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.

    Some quick reviews from SIFF:

    Key of Life, directed by Kenji Uchida, is a freaking hilarious black comedy about a depressed, unemployed man who takes on the identity of a hitman (unknown to him) through a bathhouse mix-up. Uchida highly stylizes a few of the key narrative elements -- making fun of the the genres the film locates itself in -- but it doesn't get so self-reflexive and overtly self-aware that it stops being fun. Highly recommended.

    Goltzius and the Pelican Company is Peter Greenaway's newest film, about a Dutch troupe of actors/writers/printmakers in 16th century Europe. Greenaway is totally insane, but the film manages to basically recreate the sentiment of the baroque on screen with surprising truth. The film is a sort of cinematic version of in the tradition of tableaux vivants, in which classical works of art are recreated by arranging live people into frozen statues on stage. Except with a lot more nudity, sex, and general obscenity.

    What Maisie Knew, directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, follows the young daughter of a dysfunctional contemporary family (parents played by Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan) through the process of divorce. Moore plays the oblivious and self-involved mother with conviction, and Alexander Skarsgard is charming as a sort of bartender-turned-nanny figure, but the young actress playing six year old Maisie steals the show. The film is directed with emphasis on the difficulty of the human condition, and at times the pacing seems off, but overall it's quite touching and charming.

    I watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. I've heard people complain that it's insulting to those with mental illness and that it's exploitative and ridiculous. I wonder if those who say so have even seen the film. I was a fan of the whole thing, thought that both Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence had masterful performances and was impressed that they didn't shy away from some pretty dark and uncomfortable moments throughout the film. It felt real at times, and I liked that.

    Yeah, i felt like it was actually really empathetic to people with severe depression and other issues and I felt like their dialogue attempting to explain what was happening to them was really well written.

    Also, i saw The Great Gatsby yesterday, and as a total unapologetic Luhrmann fan i loved it, and I loved the use of 3D.

    could only do 1/4 of Silver Linings Playbook and Gatsby wasn't a very interesting book, so have no intention of seeing any film adaptation.

    Last good movies seen were The Hunt (so easy to get steamrolled with negative chatter) and The Artist (didn't like the ending, but loved the dog).

    Put this in the birdemic category "Dinotasia" a 2012 film with cgi worse than Terra Nova and terrible scenarios dinosaurs lived through. The highlight has been the duck-billed Dino similar to the brontosaurus who decided to eat some mushrooms, proceeds to trip, and then is attacked by predators while tripping.

    A tale of a tail whip to a young allosaurus to mutilate its face, somehow it survived 11 years later to confront its foe...


    This is absolutely a must see for no one on your Netflix cue

    Tai Chi Zero, best kung fu flick i've seen in a while. And i've gone thru some pretty bad ones recently on netflix. I guess it's a trilogy with the 2nd file, Tai Chi Hero, recently released in NA. Hoping it gets to Netflix soon.

    I had only seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset recently, but Before Midnight was a perfect continuation of the story. I still like Before Sunrise the most, but this comes in a close second.

    Bah! I did not like Tai Chi Zero. Not a very good kung fu flick if you ask me.

    After hearing some seriously mixed things about it, I'm delighted at how much I liked The Great Gatsby. It was really fun to just get lost in Baz's world for a few hours. But man, Leonardo DiCaprio continues to show that he has no range. His performance was very textbook him, with of course that one requisite scene where he gets wildly enraged and it looks like a vein is going to pop in his forehead. Like clockwork, that guy.

    Edit: Oh, and good grief the accent. Leonardo can't pull off a convincing accent to save his life.

    Let me guess, in the scene where he gets mad, does he point at something (probably the person he is yelling at)? I never not seen the movie, but I think he does that in every movie he is in.

    There's a reason movie stars are movie stars and great actors are great actors. Leo is a movie star, so when he's cast it's because the director wants him to bring his movie star performance. It's why Leo's "Gilbert Grape", Pitt's "12 Monkeys", etc. only happen before they become huge, marketable megastars. (Yeah, I know Pitt took a pittance to be in "Snatch" - that's a rare occurrence for those huge stars.)

    Glad you liked it, though. We felt the movie is severely underrated by the critical and viewing community, and was a really nice way to spend a few hours at the movies. It looked and sounded great, the 3D was terrific, and the actors (whether or not you love Leo's performance) represented the material extremely well.

    Then again, most people "meh'd" over Moulin Rouge, which we found absolutely excellent.
