    I loved it. Von Trier got the best performance out of Kristen Dunst she may ever give. Already looking forward to seeing it again, not because I didn't "get it" but more because of how engaging and beautiful it was. It juxtaposes Justine's chronic depression and the end of the world so well. I especially loved that although the whole film shows Justine's dysfunctional family trying to cope with her for being so difficult and unhappy, she turns out to be the only one who can cope with the end of the world and builds a sort of "hope" fort for her sister and Nephew to shelter themselves under. She is so used to every day feeling like the end of the world that she is the most prepared for the real deal.

    Funny thing, around the end of the film when the planet was closing in and I was on the edge of my seat my whole neighborhood erupted in cheers and fireworks because the Giants had won. It was a fun contrast lol

    Movies I've seen recently:

    The Forgotten: Absolutely terrible. Well, it starts off alright with an interesting concept, but the second half just sucks the life out of everything (literally). I'm usually lenient on movies but I just wanted my 90 minutes back. To be fair when this first came out in like 2004 I used to laugh at the stupid trailers featuring people 'sucked into the sky' as an example of the crap modern 'scary' movies have become. Turns out I was right.

    Buffalo 66 I saw this like a day after The Forgotten and it almost made up for that travesty. It was described to me as a "dark Napoleon Dynamite" which beyond some stylistic similarities isn't that accurate but if all you know about indie movies is Napoleon I guess I can see that description. Anyway great movie. Christina Ricci at her hottest possibly.

    Superman III Don't think I'd ever seen this one. Goofy but fun w/ Richard Pryor. The "evil Superman" segment is surprisingly dark. Oh and Lana is way hotter than Lois.

    Swimfan I can see why people think this is a terrible movie but Erika Christensen is boneriffic in this. That was all that really mattered 4 me.

    I felt the same way, watching Justine grow stronger and more sensible the closer it came to the end of the world. In a way she seemed almost relieved, that the premonitions she'd had were contributing to her increasing instability, and that on her wedding day, in seeing how the star had been hidden, and learning about Melancholia, it was a turning point for her. The awkward family scenes at the wedding reception were executed brilliantly. It made you feel like one of the wedding guests, watching this scene get played out, and aching for them. And the long visual sequence at the beginning really set the tone for tension.

    Have you seen Black Snake Moan? Christina Ricci was super fit and lean for this movie, and although her character was really rough and unappealing she still looked incredible.

    Keeping with the Halloween spirit, and in an effort to get into AFI Fest mode, my double feature for this evening was comprised of these two. Both were absolutely excellent, but in different ways obviously.

    I had been waiting for literally a calendar year to see the latter after having missed it at AFI Fest last year...and man, after Reprise and now Oslo it's very apparent that Trier has something special with Anders Danielsen Lie. His way of acting fleshes incredibly well with the naturalistic style Trier shoots these films. Really, really good stuff.

    Why do you feel that way about Wreck-It-Ralph? I have extremely high hopes and am planning on seeing it this weekend. I think it looks pretty great.

    The animation looks decent, the campaign for it has definitely put it on the map, the talent attached (John C Reily) has always done great voice work and they have rights to many popular gaming franchises. It's not like I expect too much out of this movie (the same with John Carter) - it still is a modern Disney flick and they really haven't had anything amazing recently that could rival Lion King/Aladdin/etc. I don't mention Pixar flicks as they are separate entities when it comes to their creations in my mind.

    Agreed. As long as someone out there loves any part of Star Wars, the company has a lot of value.

    I can only see this as a good thing. Lucas is going to be hands-off now, only signed on as a "creative consultant". Give the series over to someone like Whedon, Nolan, Brad Bird. Just keep Zack Snyder far away.
