Caught up on a bunch of older movies lately.
I enjoyed The Wrestler. Poignant tale of glory days gone by. Not much to add that hasn't been said before. B
V for Vedetta - My first time seeing the movie the Wachowski brothers made after The Matrix. An odd mix of stuff I liked and stuff I didn't like. I enjoyed the literate hero and the fact that we never saw what his face looked like. The part in the middle where he reprograms Natalie Portman's character or whatever he does seemed ridiculous and unnecessary. Nice camera work. Nice sets. C+
Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone - First time watching it in about 5 years. Good god could this movie have been any longer. This isn't Lord of the Rings, this is light family fare. Could easily be a B if it weren't so long.
Corpse Bride - Basically appealing in the same way that A Nightmare Before Christmas was appealing except watered down. There were what, 4 Danny Elfman songs, in the whole movie? The last 1/3rd or so was a lot of fun though. C
