Re: Movies Seen in 2012

204. The Pirates! Band of Misfits (B+)
205. Sleepwalk with Me (B-)

The Pirates! Band of Misfits: Six months after seeing this for the first time, I think I like it even more. There are a lot of clever details in the background that won't be noticed until a second viewing, which is a level of craft I don't always see in children's films (Pixar excepted).

Sleepwalk with Me: For those unfamiliar with Mike Birbiglia's stand-up, there's a lot to like in this movie, which is well-written and competently directed, especially for a first time filmmaker. For those who are familiar with his stand-up, there's a lot that feels old, and inferior to the original monologues they're based upon. Alas, I fall in the second category, but for those who haven't heard much from the comic, this will make for an entertaining and accessible gateway.

Theatres: 61
Home Video: 127+1
Computer: 15+1

That's the last of the films I saw in 2012; onto 2013. Not much of an impression on the year in film as a whole, since so many of the movies I saw this year were older films.
