    After five seasons of playing Walter White, the chemist-turned-meth-kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston has racked up plenty of evil-doer experience. And according to report from Cosmic Book News, he'll boost his villain credentials even further by playing Superman nemesis Lex Luthor in the upcoming sequel for Man of Steel. Cranston has reportedly signed a deal that includes at least six appearances (and possibly more), meaning that his character will appear in a variety of films set within the inter-connected DC Comics universe. "Cranston is truly a dream casting for Luthor," a source told Cosmic Book News. This news follows last week's controversial announcement that Ben Affleck has signed on to play Batman in the same film. The actor reportedly inked a deal that includes 13 total appearances.

    Cate's performance is worth the ticket alone. One of the best of any Allen film. Suprisingly, Andrew Dice Clay comes up with pretty great one, as well.

    This is true. The whole cast is great - Sally Hawkins is terrific, Louis CK and Alec Baldwin operating firmly within their wheelhouses, and it's nice to see Alden Ehrenreich getting some work as well. But Cate is the show. The ending is perfect.

    Ain't Them Bodies Saints is also one of the year's best movies. Ignore the lazy comparisons to Malick - it's more of a dark folk murder-romance ballad that just happens to feature a lot of magic hour. The performances (Rooney Mara in particular), cinematography, editing, music - all fantastic. I don't know if there's a lot of meat on the bone, but it's exquisitely crafted. This ending is also just about perfect.

    Saw it this afternoon. Fantastic. I love how unpredictable Allen continues to be...his last two films were good, but not great (although I prefer Paris to Rome by a good bit), so this was a pleasant surprise. I'll be furious if Cate Blanchett doesn't win an Oscar for this, absolutely one of the best female lead performances I can recall in recent years.

    I really hope that Cranston as Lex Luthor thing happens, but it still hasn't been confirmed by DC. It wouldn't surprise me if they were testing the waters with the rumor before making it official. So far the news has only been broken by a few smaller comic sites. Not sure why RS took that as confirmation. (apart from them being terrible these days).

    Cate has to win. I was floored by her performance. And I loved the little details like her wearing the same two or three classy outfits in every scene.

    I watched Brian's Song last night. Figured it's about to be football season might as well watch a football movie. Holy hell I did not expect that to be such a big tearjerker of a movie. It was crazy that while you are feeling sad it makes you laugh at the same time. But yeah a must watch for any sports/football fans or just anyone a fan of a good story that was true. Again it is sad but it's a really good movie. I would stick with the James Caan one from the 70's not the Disney remake.

    So I saw Kick-Ass 2 this weekend. So I had a feeling from the trailer that it wasn't going to be anything special and it really wasn't. I just happened to like the first one so I figured why not. Plenty of action and killing in it but other then that not much to it. There wasn't really any good story development and a lot of stuff just didn't make any real sense to me. I mean it's easy enough to follow but a lot of time I just asking myself "why, that doesn't make any sense." Only a couple of the humor scenes actually generated a laugh from me, everything else was pretty predictable as far as the jokes go. Supposedly they have plans to make a third and the ending/post credit scenes set it up, but looking at the box office number didn't look like it did to well so I guess we shall see on that one. Overall it's worth waiting for it to go on netflix or just stream online. It's one that can be passed on to see in theaters.

    Finally saw Life of Pi. Not generally a fan of films in which CGI plays such a big role, but that tiger was a really magnificent creation. Too bad the kid playing Pi didn't have the skill or charisma to captivate for nearly 2 hours. While many of the scenes in the ocean and the deserted island were visually lovely, the whole thing fell a bit flat when characters spoke. It's probably tricky to tell this kind of story without narration, but there were too many "wise brown man shows Westerner the meaning of life" lectures for my taste.

    The Motion Picture Academy is screening Satyajit Ray's 'Apu' trilogy today and Monday. Wish I could go, but I won't make it there in time. More details here (and below).


    New prints of films preserved by the Academy Film Archive

    With special guests actress Sharmila Tagore (“Apur Sansar”) and Dilip Basu, founding director of the Satyajit Ray Film and Study Center Collection at the University of California, Santa Cruz

    With a special introduction by Satya Bhabha on September 6


    Friday, September 6 at 7 p.m. Double Feature
    PATHER PANCHALI (SONG OF THE LITTLE ROAD)
    A poetic and intense portrait of an impoverished Brahmin family living in rural Bengal, the film focuses on their young son Apu as he apprehends the beauty and cruelty of the world around him. 1955. 115 minutes.

    APARAJITO (THE UNVANQUISHED)
    “Aparajito” continues the story of the Bengali family after they have left for the holy city of Benares on the banks of the Ganges. Throughout the film, Apu gains more life experience. He trains for the priesthood – the traditional family vocation – but in the end, leaves his mother to study in Calcutta, where he finds a new life in “modern India.” 1956. 113 minutes.


    Monday, September 9 at 7:30 p.m.
    APUR SANSAR (THE WORLD OF APU)
    The concluding part of the trilogy deals with Apu’s manhood. Ultimately a love story, the film describes Apu’s serendipitous marriage, the birth of his son, the tragic disillusionment he faces and his eventual regeneration through the love of his son. 1959. 106 minutes.

    That Robocop reboot trailer really makes that movie look like utter garbage. It hurts my soul and makes my eyes bleed.

    Also, the future Detroit looks really clean. Is Robocop fighting crime in Detroit or in an IKEA?

    Speaking of reboots and bad trailers, 'Carrie' doesn't look too good either. That actress who plays Carrie just looks too normal.

    But Julianne Moore is in it, so I don't know, it could be good.
    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 watched a Japanese horror film the other night called Uzumaki (spiral). Its about a small town in Japan that becomes possessed by a swirl spirit/monster/whatever. It sounds stupid, but it is really creepy and I couldn't stop watching. People start dying off in weird ways that resemble a spiral, e.g. a kid gets hit by a car and is wrapped up in the axel. Good wholesome family fun, check it out. And, like most Japanese horror flicks, if anyone can explain the ending to me I would appreciate it, thanks.

    Pacific Rim was at the 3 dollar theater near my house so I went to go see it this afternoon. Oh man that could have been a great movie but it just fell flat. There really wasn't any much story development and I thought they could have done a better job with the ending. Pretty cool special effects and action scenes so it was worth watching on the big screen alone for that. However I just felt like they had a million dollar idea and only produced a five hundred thousand one.

    It was a modern day ID4 in my opinion, without the superstar power of Will Smith. Dumb jokes, goofy characters, but cool scenes... and more clapping and hooting when I saw it (with a full crowd) than anything I've seen since Avengers opening weekend.

    I definitely thought it would be better than a cheesy disaster movie, but it most definitely was not.
