Movies Seen in 2010
 
1/1 The Blind Side (2009) [A]
d. John Lee Hancock
s. Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, Kathy Bates

Based on the True Story of Michael Orr and how he was adopted by the Tuohy family, played football at a private school then Ole Miss, and finally the Baltimore Ravens.

I really enjoyed this movie. It's a little over the top in the middle when all the coaches start their recruiting, but overall I love this movie. It's heartwarming, funny, and has some great acting from the main cast.

Great way to start off the new year with movies! I have a goal of 365 this year, by the way.

I watched "Sleeping Beauty" on Blu-Ray last night. Does that count?

I will be going to The Lovely Bones on Monday or Tuesday.

I gather this thread is for movies we see at the cinema, on TV or on DVD?

Avatar [B+] (might be raised to A-) - great special effects and acting on a familiar story.

Braindead - one of the films Peter Jackson made in New Zealand before someone in Hollywood gave him tons of money to make LOTR. This movie is so idiotic, disgusting and bloody that it turns into a great black comedy, with romance, family values and zombies. Featuring a priest who kicks ass for the Lord, nazi veterinarian, zombies having sex, zombies being chopped by a lawnmower and a zombie baby put in blender, among other such things.

Even though I had already seen this film, Sherlock Holmes serves as my first film in a theater for 2010.

I enjoyed this movie a lot too (more than "Lord of the Rings" even). The only thing I didn't like about it is how ugly it was. I don't mean anything that happens in it. I enjoyed all the over-the-top gore. I just mean it looked really cheap in terms of the cinematography. Poor film school student cheap.

I know it was low budget, but of all the early low budget movies of directors who would go on to greatness, this was the cheapest-looking one of all. The Evil Dead movies looked pristine compared to this. But that's only a minor complaint. I still enjoyed the movie thoroughly from start to finish. The lawnmower scene and the scene with the baby in the park are classic.

I'm going to see Avatar tomorrow at IMAX Theater here at The Mall of Georgia, but their is so many people trying to see this movie, that all showing were sold out. All but one was already sold today for Sunday's shows, so I'm having to go a 08:30 AM performance, which is first time that I have gone to see a movie so early in the AM. The good thing at least, I'll be seeing it at IMAX Theater.:techman::bolian::)
