Jeff Who Lives at Home. Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon. Such a great little story. I couldn't recommend it enough.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - I've seen it before, but I just saw the stage show and wanted to watch it again. I saw it so long ago that I didn't even remember it (apart from what was in the show). I liked it a lot more than I did when I was (probably) 18.

I was just thinking of watching the Vengeance trilogy sometime soon. Maybe have a Park Chan-wook marathon.

Lately I've seen:

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (Gojira tai Megagirasu G Shōmetsu Sakusen; Godzilla x Megaguirus: G Extermination Strategy)
The Ninth Gate
Land of the Lost
Anata e (To You; English title: Dearest)
Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale
Shanghai Triad (Yáo a yáo, yáo dào wàipó qiáo - Row, row, row the boat to Grandma Bridge)

Finally we saw Frankenweenie - did not really car for it. I think the story line was flawed but then again as the years go by I think Burton is overrated.

He most certainly is, unfortunately. His claim to fame is Nightmare Before Christmas but Burton takes far too much credit for it.

Saw God Bless America last night. It was awesome, but I don't like the idea of glorifying mass shootings. Perhaps if I saw it before Aurora and Sandy Hook I'd think it was all just for fun, but now I don't want anyone else getting ideas.

I saw a movie Orchestra Wives (1942) recently and the music was really enjoyable (Glenn Miller's in it...like orchestrating, tromboning with the band, conducting AND acting) so the music in the movie is incredibly awesome. I enjoyed the flick too. How women are portrayed is cringeworthy though (for the lovers in the story, the man just grabs the woman and kisses her and suddenly they're madly in love and get married...so...you know) but put in the context of its time it's interesting to see that women could be treated that way and no one protested, you know. The music! It's good! Worth whiling away a rainy Sunday afternoon or sumpin if this flick comes up on TCM and you wanted to see forties mores and Glenn Miller performing in several different arenas.

^And my favorite part of the whole movie was the dance sequence by the Nicholas Brothers, which is unrelated to the plot and disconnected from the whole movie in general, but is a performance within the movie that's just some incredible dancin'.

Edited to add some Nicolas Brothers dancin so you can see what I'm talking about (this is from Stormy Weather with Cab Calloway's band--but you get the idea of the dance clip I saw from Orchestra Wives):

Wreck it Ralph - started out great and ended great but the middle was meh.

The Perks of being a wallflower. very good but I felt confused with the timeframe. not sure why that threw me off.
Oh and Charlie was awfully cute.

Chicken with Plums. The new movie by Marjane Satrapi (woman who made Persepolis). I liked it a lot. A perfect balance of comedy and heartfelt drama. Lots of dreamy, obscure scenes, too which I love. Kind of like a French Wes Anderson film that takes place in Iran. Just no Owen Wilson.

I've been wanting to see that- glad to hear a good review.

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.

That reminds me of Sun Valley Serenade, starring Sonja Henie and John Payne, also with Glenn Miller, The Nicholas Brothers, and Dorothy Dandridge, and Springtime in the Rockies starring Betty Grable and John Payne, with Harry James, Carmen Miranda, and Cesar Romero.

Also, A Song is Born was on TCM several weeks ago, starring Danny Kaye and Virginia Mayo, with Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, and Lionel Hampton, among others.

Here's some of what I've seen lately:

Clash (Bẫy Rồng; lit. Dragon Trap)
Wreck-It Ralph
Shaun of the Dead
Cowboys & Aliens
Princess and the Seven Kung Fu Masters
Needing You...
The Darkest Hour
30 Minutes or Less

We saw Stoker in the theater yesterday...It was good, right amount of build up and violence.

I saw Invictus and Taken last weekend. Invictus gave me the feeling that all of South Africa's problems were fixed with the way it ended. Taken was OK for that type of movie. Liam Neeson shouldn't play Americans - his accent really comes out when he's worked up, which he was a lot in that film.

I have watched a few lately.
Moneyball it was OK, nothing great. I enjoyed watching it once and probably would not watch it again.
Zero Dark Thirty Oh I so wish I had back that time from watching this. I though it was horrible. I wanted to shut it off about 30 mins in but the husband said he was too far in and we had to finish it.
Pitch Perfect I loved this movie. I did not have high expectations for it but I really enjoyed the entire film. Then again, I loved Rock of Ages with Tom Cruise. Weird.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - I liked it. It was a little schmaltzy and predictable, but it was good. It would've been better with a non-Keira Knightley actress, but what can you do?

Evil Dead. Loved it. So much fun for horror fans, but probably no fun for others.
Slither. Good old fashioned monster-movie fun. Not too shabby. Extra points for Nathan Fillion.

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.
