The Coen Brothers cast him in their next movie, so the obviously think he can act.

37. The Life of Reilly (A-)

The Life of Reilly: It's hard to believe that Charles Nelson Reilly was already ill when he filmed this documentary, which is essentially the final two performances of his one-man show interspersed with archival footage and a few "man on the street" interviews. The man has more energy in his mid-70s than I do on most days. As funny as often as it is tragic (Reilly spends a lot of time talking about his family life, which was often miserable), I'm happy that this show was recorded, especially now that Reilly is gone. Thankfully, the camerawork is dynamic and the use of quick cut-aways helps liven things up and make them more cinematic. Not that Reilly needs to be livened up; he exerts life in every frame.

The only disappointment of the film is the way Reilly's monologue elides much comment about his sexuality, besides noting that the President of NBC rejected him because "they don't allow queers on television." Considering how much of his personal life Reilly reveals here, I can't blame too harshly for wanting to keep something private, though.

34. Sneakers

The film has a great cast and is - despite the twist in the middle being very obvious - a lot of fun to watch (some really funny moments like Strathairn's blind character having to drive a car).
It reminded me a lot of the tv series Leverage.

Used my employee discount to see the latest first person/found footage movie about a high school party that turns into a riot.

It was entirely stupid & juvenile, but I laughed more durin' it than I did when I went to see Wanderlust.

There were a lot more boobs in it than the hippie commune comedy, too.

20. X-Men: First Class (A)
21. Do The Right Thing (N/A)
22. Martha Marcy May Marlene (B+)
23. The Artist (A-)
24. LA Confidential (A)
25. Young Adult (B+)
26. Children of Men (B+)

Alfonso Cuaron's followup to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and also his last film until this year's much-delayed Gravity. Bit of an absence for such a talented director. This was one a number of major works by Spanish-speaking directors in 2006 (and the only one entirely in English), and I'd set it in the middle between Pan's Labyrinth (which was my favourite film of that year) and Babel (which I thought was enormously overrated). This movie gets praised to the skys in SF/F circles, and while I liked it quite a lot, I don't think it quite lives up to that level of praise. Most of the most interesting parts occur after the baby is born (though, implausibly, the soldiers just let them wander off for the climax). I thought some of the political stuff was a bit on the heavy-handed side as well, though that's par for the course in dystopian fiction. The actress playing Kee was the best part of the movie; she doesn't appear to have done much since, which is too bad.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - free admission

Had a slow shift at work today, and followed it up by gettin' in to see Martha Marcy May Marlene for free. Pretty good movie about a girl tryin' to adjust to life outside of a cult...

Currently waitin' patiently for Studio Ghibli's Nausicaa, the fourth of four movies the Drafthouse is showin' as part of a 35mm retrospective, and the third I've gotten tickets for. It starts in less than an hour, hope it doesn't suck.

Hugo 3D ★★★
"Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton."

I saw Hugo 3D on Tuesday. The first ten minutes I was amazed by the 3D graphics. But in the end I thought the movie was too long and the pace was too slow. I had expected more magic. I greatly enjoyed the flashbacks of George Méliès and I wished they made Hugo a bit more like A Trip to the Moon.

Not to speak for Digits, but I saw it at a free screenin' last month, and found it depressin' as hell and never want to watch it again.

Only reason I went to see it in the first place was Tom Hanks, though Max von Sydow turned out to have the best character in the movie.

I can imagine the story in itself might make one feel depressed, I've read the book. But if the movie is as good as the book, I would still want to see it.

I really want to see Goon. Might be worth an Itunes rental, even though for 9.99, that's quite a bit.
