I loved the East. I'm amazed at Brit Marling's talent as both a writer and actress. It was also interesting to read articles after watching the movie about how she spent months on end dumpster diving and living with anarchist collectives as research for the movie.


Me too! She's amazing. That movie was special.

The Call - Even Halle Berry couldn't save this piece of shiitake.
Hanna - blah. I don't like it when I'm finished with a movie and have more questions about it than when I started.
Gangster Squad-This one was decent. I've really been into movies from this era lately, though.

I've been watching lots of indie movies on Hulu and Amazon Prime recently.

After Porn Ends - Documentary
My Girlfriends Boyfriend - RomCom with Alyssa Milano
Take this Waltz - I really enjoyed this, Michelle Williams drama
The Giant Mechanical Man - Jenna Fischer, Topher Grace, and Chris Messina drama worth watching!

And then we rented movies from Redbox this weekend.

Identity Thief - Not worth watching, thought it would be much funnier than it was.
Mama - Ok horror thriller movie, the ending was a let down. Could have been much creepier!

Safety Not Guaranteed - fell asleep both times I tried to watch it
Drive- I really liked this and I'm a big Ryan Gosling fan.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest-liked it and was glad to finish the trilogy. I love the way Noomi Rapace (sp?) looks in it.

Past week's screening round-up:

Elysium - was ok, but I expected the strength and depth of District 9, and I could tell that there was a tug of war between the director's vision along those lines and the producers'/studio's desire to have a run of the mill action flick. So the end result was unsatisfying.

Lee Daniels' The Butler - (don't wanna get sued! that's the proper title!) - was great! It wasn't as artfully done as it would need to be to win major awards, but it was powerful, emotional, and had superb acting. Especially from Oprah! She was amazing.

Jobs - (Steve Jobs story, starring Ashton Kutcher) - was disappointing. The other people in the theatre enjoyed it, but I was bored most of the time. I assume most audiences want to see Apple's founding, the early years, and how SJ revolutionized it at the turn of the century. Instead, it's entirely founding/early years. No iphones, no ipads, just interpersonal business shenanigans. And it felt like it wasn't edited. Lots of long pauses leading up to 'speeches' that felt self-important but were lame and cringey instead.

Fruitvale Station - jesus. Should be required for everyone in America. Or the world. It was really well done. The fact that it's a true story and that it gets repeated so often...it's horrifying. Ugh heart pain.

Stuart: A Life Backwards - I thought I talked about this when I saw it, but I guess I didn't actually hit the submit button. It was really good. Maybe I just haven't heard the praise, but I feel like we don't really hear enough about how amazing Tom Hardy is. He was astounding in this. I mean, Cumberbatch was good in it, but I've heard people fawn all over him (and not without reason). But I can't recall hearing that kind of praise for Tom Hardy, who really deserves it.

Venus Beauty - I watched it for Audrey Tautou because I love her. She was a supporting character, though. It was alright - a bit weird, but I guess that's what you get with a French rom-com (which is totally what this was).

Lincoln - I may have mentioned this before, but Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best actors of our time. The movie itself was great. It almost made me feel feelings, and I don't really feel feelings right now.

Also, not that this has any bearing on the film, but there were a lot of 3-name actors - DDL, JGL, Tommy Lee Jones, Jackie Earl Haley, Tim Blake Nelson.

The Hunt (Jagten). Fantastic. I'm not a big fan of the director, he seems like a big bag of dicks, but this movie was really great.

Bridesmaids - When I first saw the trailer, I didn't think I'd like it, so I put off watching it for a while. I ended up really liking it. It was really funny!

I really liked it, too.

I just watched the documentary "The Swell Season". That was depressing.

I had a doc marathon yesterday

"Hot Coffee" about the woman who sued McDonalds when she spilled coffee on herself. It then explored tort reform, caps on damages etc. it was very interesting.

"The Invisible War" about sexual assault/abuse in the military. Should be required viewing.

"Side by Side" about how the use of film for motion pictures is being replaced by digital cameras; the evolution of those cameras and then a discussion about how people now consume entertainment very differently than they used to. really good.

Also "Smashed" about a couple of drinkers/alcoholics and the impact when she wants to get sober.
I don't know who the woman is but she was really great

I do want to see this!

Although I'm bummed to see summer ending, fall is my favorite time for movies--especially film noir, spooky or moody ones. I hope to get acquainted with some new stuff this season and rewatch some old faves

Guys I saw the best movie ever, 'Runner Runner', with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck. No I'm just joking it was hilariously not good. But hilarious. I wrote a review if you want to know more http://www.laughfrodisiac.com/5/post/20 ... thing.html

I saw Flight a few weeks ago. Holy crepe, don't watch that anywhere near a time you're gonna fly. Jesus. It was good, but woahmygod I couldn't even look at booking flights for a couple of days.

I also watched Albert Nobbs, which was alright. I guess I expected a bit more from Glenn Close, but meh. It wasn't terrible, just a bit predictable and not terribly memorable.

Oh, man, I really want to see this!

One notable film I've seen lately is Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, 1944. Shot right to the top of the list of my favorite Hitchcock films (after Psycho).

For some reason I watched Stoker and the Place Beyond the Pines back to back. Tense doesn't cover it. They are probably my two films of the year though.
