oh, i liked it, too, but it was a hell of a downer. so did you not think blue valentine was smart or thoughtful? i'd say that one is the better movie overall, but i haven't watched it in a while.

Yeah, I did want to see Blue Valentine but haven't got around to watching it yet. But I do expect it to be good! (Mostly because I heard it's good.)

Ya know, I think I need to watch Blue Valentine again. I wasn't feeling it the first time around. But mainly because I don't think I felt the connection between Michelle and Ryan. (that was probably on purpose) Something about her performance in that movie put me off, or was so distracting that I couldn't focus on the story. I'm not really sure but I didn't walk away saying "I loved it" or "I want to see it again". Which I did with The Place Beyond the Pines.

I loved it! Besides Ryan and Bradley giving great performances, I honestly thought it was smart and thoughtful. And I wasn't expecting that coming off of Blue Valentine.



This was filmed in the city next to me and it was a huge freaking deal at the time. Every day in the newspaper were pictures of Ryan and Bradley which was a-ok with me!! It premiered there last week and Bradley showed up. People went bonkers. I can't wait to see it

I watched Flight last night. I only wanted to see it because of Denzel. It was a very good movie. Then again, anything Denzel is in, usually is. It was a longer movie but I was really engrossed in the movie and time just flew. Lately I have seen a number of duds but this one I would rank as one of the top movies I watched this year.



I thought Denzel deserved the Oscar for his performance in Flight, so much more so than DDL for Lincoln. He was amazing. Highly recommend.

I watched Primer. It's one of those movies I've wanted to see for a while and then had forgotten about. It is the first movie about time-travel that I don't have a billion problems with.

Saw Killing Me Softly. It was quite literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Offhand I don't know what would be in my top 5 worst movies, but this one is definitely in there.

In theaters: The Place Beyond The Pines. The first third of the movie was good. It looked like it was leading up to something then it fizzled out.

On Netflix: The Fabulous Stains.

I watched the new evil dead movie and I didn't hate it.

Pee Wees Big Adventure. First time seeing it. Pretty good. I miss Pee Wee.
Life of Pi. LOVED it. Even with all the CGI (which I hate). That ending!

Changing Lanes (starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck): I thought this was all right. The teevee guide gives it four stars, I give it three.

The Longest Day - in preparation of my trip to Normandy.

I know it's considered a classic and one of the best war movies ever made but .....it seems to me a primary reason this was made was not to tell the horrors of war or to show the incredibly complicated logistics involved but was just to give every actor in Hollywood a job.

I'm not sure if this counts as a movie, it's a filmed radio play, but I've watched What About Dick? three nights in a row now. It's hilarious. Written by Eric Idle, with Billy Connolly and Eddie Izzard and other funny people. So awesome.

Iron Man 3! Loved it! I love RDJ.

Spoiler: show
I just wish Gwyneth had actually died, but it was pretty obvious that she wouldn't.

I liked it, even though the timeline is thoroughly confusing.

I recently watched Antiviral - interesting concept, not so great execution. A nightmare for health care professionals (even I reacted to some things) and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension - which doesn't get it right either, but in this case it's kind of the point. Brilliant.

The Descent - Supposedly the scariest British horror film of the past 20 years or something. It was more gory than scary.

The Good, the Bad, and the Weird - A Korean western. It was actually quite good.

Looper - It was OK, but not great.

The Great Gatsby, loved it! I know its getting bad reviews. But I like Baz Lhurmann and this was true to his form.

Friends with Kids, very cute. Not too sappy or overly romantic as far as RomComs go.

I wanna see it because it's one of my fave books. I might go this weekend, but some time soon for sure. I haven't read many reviews and the ones I saw weren't bad. With Baz Lurhmann, I expect it to be visual and colorful (actually, the scene I keep picturing from BL is the one where Gatsby is piling up his colorful shirts to show off for Daisy) and the Gatsbyesque parties to be given a lot of attention to detail and as lavish as an imagination will allow. I also kind of expect to cringe during the more toned down romanticism scenes though. Not sure how that's gonna go as that is the true charm of the book--the pining and hopelessly romantic wizard behind the curtain dreaming of his unrealized and unattainable love. That's always harder to translate onto film for any director and I feel like subtlety might not be BL's forte. I haven't seen a lot of his movies though, just going by the couple I've seen. He did R&J too didn't he some years ago and that was all right, wasn't it? I seem to remember it being so.

Anyway I wanna see it! Maybe he'll do really well with all of it!

This review pretty much sums up what all of the other reviews are hating on. If you people don't like BL films then stop seeing them! (that goes to all of the haters, not you) You are correct in your assumptions though and I think as long as you don't expect the movie to be as great as the book then you won't have a problem with it. The scene with the shirts is one of the best in the whole movie!

He did do R&J, and it is easily one of favorite movies ever. He has the same love affair with Leo's crying eyes that I do!

Ha! I knew it would be! My first thought when I heard BL was directing was that he'd make that shirt scene one for the books!

Definitely don't hate BL but kind of have a taste for what he does well and maybe what he does less well as a director.
