6. Life of Pi (2012) - A
My son and I saw Life of Pi last night.

What a terrific film! Incredibly done, and so poignant at the end. I'm still just reeling from the experience.

World War Z ★★★.125

This movie was so great until the last 20 minutes. It was a thrill ride for a long time, and then it just slowly faded away. I'll need to watch it again

It took me four attempts but I finally finished the extended director's cut of King Arthur. Dear god, what a terrible movie that was...how do ya take the Arthur legend & make it dull? By tryin' to say its true and bendin' & breakin' the legend to make it fit in a historical conext.

I went to BuyBacks right after I was done with it.

From there, I got back into downtown in time for Weird Wednesday's showing of Joysticks, part of the Summer of '83 series. Pretty dumb movie about an uptight businessman tryin' to shut down the local videogame arcade. Bad actin' & bare boobies abound, but the movie sucked.

Went to the Ritz again today for The Keep, another Summer of '83 movie. This one was about Nazi soldiers who accidently release a golem, and Ian McKellan is brought in to try and stop it.

Not sure what the next "new to me" movie will be, but the Alamo did get three new ones on Friday, and I still haven't seen This is the End.

Good lord, The Keep is awful. No wonder it still isn't on home video -- I doubt even Michael Mann completists think it is worth the effort.

Before Midnight is the only impressive new movie of the year so far.

Unless you count Leviathan, since its US release was 2013. Leviathan is amazing.

You are a tough crowd.

30 Days of Night ★★★ - Nothing spectacular, but an interesting take on Vampires
Blue Valentine ★★★ - the characters are unlikable and the trailers are EXTREMELY misleading

Went over to the Ritz earlier tonight for Terror Tuesday and its last Summer of '83 film, Mortuary, featurin' a crazy young Bill Paxton.

The host introductin' the movie mentioned how it was marketed as a zombie movie, but really its a slasher. And he was right - found the trailer on YouTube, and the poster for it on IMDB seem to make it look like its all about zombies.

The movie itself is about a young college girl with massive mood swings bein' stalked by a creeper while her widowed mother holds seances with the local mortician. And it has Bill Paxton.

Not to say its a good movie, bu it wasn't completely unbearable...the write up on the website said the original cut was over two hours. Maybe a restored version would be worth checkin' out.

I'm just impressed that they flew the copy we watched over from a film archive in England.

The fishin' boat documentary? I wanted to see that, and Drafthouse ran the trailer for awhile, but they only had one showin' on a Saturday afternoon, so I missed out.

I wonder why they did that? I know UCLA has a print in their archive (which I saw a couple years ago). Maybe they're not loaning it out anymore.

Man of Steel

Harrowing moral tale that is not entirely as hopeful as the trailers would suggest; it relies on the audience's understanding that Superman's philanthropic potential will be fully reached in the second part. Absolutely beautiful, the second half is mostly cold and distant pieces of metal smashing together, but appropriately full of awe. The "secret" ending ties various aspects of the story together - I get the impression that those who oppose to it, didn't like the movie anyway. The movie people deserve, but not the one they need next time.

Was in San Antonio for a work conference most of the week.
A colleague and I went to the North Park Alamo Drafthouse and caught Man of Steel.

Great place to see a movie!!
"No one under 6 admitted"
"Age 6-17 must have an adult"
Before the previews started the screen simply said,"This is now a no talking zone. One complaint to the manager, you get a warning. Second complaint you are ejected with no refund. Keep your phone, dark, off and in your pocket--no texting or tweeting"

We've got to get one of these in Nashville!!

Went out to Alamo Slaughter tonight to see two new movies that open wide tomorrow.

WHD was an okay action movie, not great. Made me wonder if Olympus has Fallen was a better movie, but I missed out on seein' since my truck broke down about the same time it came out.

TH was an entertainin' lady buddy cop movie, if a bit too predictable, but at least it didn't include all the good bits in the trailer. And I got a free Mondo poster!

The Heat is an amusing farce. The sentimental gush only takes up about ten minutes and even it is punctuated with some humor. Sophisticated viewers need to remember that humor is all about conflict. In this movie, that means aggression.
