Kick Ass.

It was everything I expected, hilarious and bloody. Too bad the theater started showing the wrong movie at first (Date Night), but everyone in the theater got a coupon giving free admission to any movie at the same place that never expired so it made up for it.

Did your daughter like it?

Kick-Ass - awesome.  Everything about it was amazing; Cage was awesome, and so were all of the kids.

Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (1975)

First of all.... ummm... Wow. (Yes, that isn't the right word. But can you think of anything better?)

Secondly I'm shocked anyone (except the inanely literally-minded) thinks this is pornographic. If anything it is most anti-pornographic film ever. Parts of it were like being punched in the face for two hours (not in a bad way)

This an extremely interesting film intellectually, though I'm not sure artistically (no one would ever confuse it with a piece of entertainment) and I do think Pasolini does capture many things about the nature of fascism and its relation to liberalism, self-concious intellectualism (though I do wish this was explored a bit more) and notions of sexual liberation (which makes BRTD interest in the film very ironic, or perhaps it is an indication of Pasolini's artistic failure. I mean we can see such images regularly on the interwebs these days - The Libertines and thus Salo have won).

So many other things to say, it's remarkable (but also very frustrating) in it's own way.

Kick-Ass

I agree with what everyone else here has said. It was simply awesome (minor plot holes and such aside).

Yeah, I'll probably check it out too although I don't care much for the artist who worked on it. The movie got a lot darker and heavier than I was expecting towards the end. Really good.

Hmm...last one was...The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, well, SpongeBob...

Though, just before I saw two better anime ones. Thanks to a TV channel that dedicated a part of its programs during about one month to Japan, arte, I discovered Hayao Myazaki. And I like Hayao Myazaki. They have broadcast at least 4 of his movies, I saw 2 of them, Howl's Moving Castle, and especially, the 1st that I saw and that made me want to see a second one, Spirited Away.

I've been surprised to like this last one when I discovered it, first I thought, oh no, a manga, I'm not a fan of anime manga style, and TV review spoke about a great thing which had big big reviews when it has been released, then before going on it I thought, well, one more hype stuff that excited a few hype people during a while, but, nothing else on TV, I tried.

And, well, dunno why but very quickly the ambiance caught me on, dunno, it was something very subtle that caught me, the animation, the pace, but also like something very subtle in the sound of the movie. And this while the stuff is about some fantasy story/magical stuffs and so forth, so much things that use to turn me off. And, if you add to this that quickly enough began a kind of love story of the kind that can touch me (and certainly the child I've been), all in lightness and strength at the same time, I was just caught. Then, I liked quite everything in that movie, ambiance, characters, the way the story evolved.

Fresh, subtle, and light. Just great.

I enjoyed the other movie too, Howl's Movie Castle, for the same kind of reasons, but not as much as Spirited Away.

Friend bought Avatar on BluRay and we hooked it up to the huge new spiffy HDTV in the dorm lounge.

The dialogue was absolutely atrocious and the plot was nothing new(as has been said a million times). I will say, however, that it was entertaining and even though I wanted to stop watching it for the first half hour, it pulled me in and I maintained interest until the end. I walked away feeling slightly underwhelmed, but the movie has stayed with me in a way I wouldn't have expected.

I have to agree that the plot holes barely detract from an otherwise fun movie.  Did anyone else think that the color palette seemed a bit off in some places?

James Marsden's character made the movie.  Zoe Saldana is still hot.

Tommy (1975)

Although the quality of music wasn't nearly as good as its 1969 album counterpart. It wasn't too bad for a Stigwood produced film; even if glutinous viewing at times; in particular Keith Moon's Uncle Ernie sequence. Now it would have made a lot more sense if Townshend was his wicked Uncle Ernie...

Death at a Funeral

I went in expecting it to be at best mildly funny (I only saw it because I had absolutely nothing to do and the trailer was funny).  However, it ended up being one of the funniest movies I have seen (in theaters) in a long time.  Danny Glover was very funny in his scenes with Tracy Morgan (who had one of the funniest characters in the film).  The "Valium" segments were also very funny.  However, the midget storyline was easily the best part of the film.  Despite being someone who usually avoids anything with Chris Rock in it, I must admit he does a good job despite having one of the more restrained/stright-man roles.  Although I went in expecting to be only mildly amused, I loved it.  I highly recommend it.

Something on the plane, what was it now?  I can't even remember it was so bad.  I should have watched Precious, which was the only worthwhile thing offered, but I wasn't up to it.  Oh I also rewatched Avatar from the eastward journey, if you can believe it.

But I'm just desperate to see Synecdoche, New York.. I just don't know when I'll get the change over here Sad

Saturday Night Fever.

It's not as bad of a movie as i thought it was. It is actually quite a serious film for the time it came out. Nowaydays it would not be a politically correct film.

O Lucky Man! (1973)

Inane "satire" is inane and obvious (and ridiculously self-indulgent). As pure entertainment, it's a bit uneven it does have its moments but other bits are just too.... A pity because I really liked If....

Is it just me or have alot of the 'art films' of the 60s and 70s dated far worse than alot of more narrative films from that period and before?
