I saw three movies in three days!

Friday - Shadow Dancer - A woman in the IRA is coerced into informing on her family. I really can't say any more or it'll kinda give everything away, but there's a twist that made the entire audience of a sell-out crowd visibly jump.

Saturday - God Bless America - I know it was already out in (some) theatres in the US, but the UK premier was this weekend. LOVED IT. I wasn't expecting it to be as funny as it was. Bobcat Goldthwait did a really good job of setting up the main character to make you understand why he would want to go on a killing spree. Highly recommended.

Sunday - Your Sister's Sister - I couldn't really connect with the main characters because I felt like they might be people I'd hate in real life. Also, there were a couple of dickish anti-vegan scenes that seemed to be based on a 90s stereotype of vegans which just took me right out of the story. But RandiJM liked it (apart from the vegan scenes).

Drive. It was alright. I still don't get how everyone finds Gosling so attractive, but his acting was good in this.

I still haven't see Drive yet. Waiting for it to come on Cable. But I love me some Ryan Gosling! He was adorable in Crazy Stupid Love!

Brave - Not too shabby. I feel it started off really strong, but teetered off towards the final act. A lot of smiles, a few chuckles. A lot of Scottish stereotyping which I think I could do without.

Ip Man 1 & 2 - Martial arts flicks loosely based on the life of Wing Chun master and teacher, Ip Man. First one was great. Loved the choreography, the plot and the characters. The second one had a lot more action, but the plot was not as good. I've seen far too many kung fu master vs. obnoxious Englishman fights. Donnie Yen, is amazing though.

Dante's Peak - Cliche special FX chaos and destruction. Certainly not as good as, say Twister but I like it better than Volcano or 2012. Plus, the lead roles are played by James Bond and Sarah Connor. How cool!

Kagemusha - My first Akira Kurosawa film. It's good. So good. About 3 rival clans in feudal Japan. One of the clans leader dies and in his place, the nobles put a look-alike so as to deceive their enemies about the leader's death. This story is a bit tricky to follow at first, but once you're in it's hard to get distracted. The scenery and costumers are beautiful. It is long, though. About 3 hours. There will be more Kurosawa in my near future.

Two movies about north Korea:

Seoul Train- An underground railroad for North Koreans trying to escape to South Korea. Amazing, and sad and all true.

Kimjongilia- Eye opening and anger provoking.

About the watch a film called the Harvest. This one is about children who work 14 hour days harvesting fruits and veggies, and are not protected by child labor laws. The movie takes place in the USA!!! The description alone peas me off.

I don't understand this movie? Is it supposed to be like the television show? Cause I don't remember that being a comedy.

The only thing like the TV show was that they were undercover cops assigned to a high school. And there the similarities pretty much end.

21 Jump Street was pretty funny. Just don't expect much from it.

The Amazing Spiderman. Andrew Garfield is easily a better Spiderman than Tobey Maguire.

Ok I couldn't even wait one day; I went to see Spiderman today. IT WAS AMAZING. Really! I'm so surprised. Damn superhero movies really have gone up a notch, between this and Avengers and Iron-Men and the Dark Knight trio. The people responsible for the Green Lantern & Hornet and the other failed ones must be very embarrassed. Anyway I have the biggest crush on Andrew Garfield now, like...it's bad.

The Dream Team - Oh, the 80s. It was alright for an 80s film, but there was still a bit of that good ol' casual racism and sexism with the added bonus of being one giant joke about the mentally ill. But it also had Michael Keaton in his heyday (it was from '89, so just after Beetlejuice and around the same time as Batman), which made up for it a bit (though his mullet was distracting).

The Guard - I really wish I'd seen this at the Film Festival last year. It was excellent.

Oh I forgot to update this! I saw Savages last weekend. Really really good! And Aaron Johnson is so dreamy to look at.

The Amazing Spider-man - I liked this but didn't love it. I prefer Andrew Garfield's Spidey to Tobey Maguire's. I absolutely love Emma Stone - I think she's one of the best new(er) actresses to come along in ages. And I love Rhys Ifans (though I wish they would've let him use his real accent - I hate how Hollywood can't seem to conceive of an intelligent British person not having an English accent). I like how the character was actually a (mostly) decent person before he self-administered a wildly experimental drug. There was something about it that didn't quite sit right with me, but I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe it was the music - Mike and I both thought it was a bit too triumphant (the exact word we both used).

Our conversation when the credits started rolling (paraphrased):
Mike: Are you ready to go?
Me: There's probably a scene in the credits. It's Marvel.
Mike: I don't think there will be.
Me: It's Marvel.
Mike: But it's not the Avengers. Spider-man wasn't an Avenger, was he?
Me: No, but it's a Marvel film.
Mike: I don't think there'll be anything.
Me: It's Marvel.
And then the scene in the credits started.

(Scene in the credits of a Marvel film is as universal as Sean Bean being dead by the end of whatever he's in. It doesn't always, always happen, but it's a pretty safe bet.)
