Re: Movies Seen in 2010

Jeff Bridges was really good in it, y'all shouldn't be disappointed when ya see Crazy Heart.

Robert Duvall was completely wasted, though...which is a shame.

Re: Movies Seen in 2010

1/7 The Uninvited (2009) [C]

A horror film with not a single genuine scare in the movie... nothing even close. Had some pretty good ideas and some gorgeous actresses, but nothing I'll ever watch again.

My dislike for the first Star Trek movie only grew as a I made it through the film for yet another time. The costume design, the cinematography, the production design, the editing, the screenwriting, most of the acting, and half the visual effects are downright terrible. A great musical score, DeForest Kelley's small role but excellent performance, and the few visual effects which manage to stand up to the standards of the day don't save this one. And what's with all the talk about this movie being about "exploring?" It's about Kirk and crew going to save the Earth from destruction against an alien enemy. It takes more than 90 minutes before there's any more depth than that.

Re: Movies Seen in 2010

Thanks to Best Buy havin' a sale on Warner Brothers DVDs, I picked up & watched All the President's Men and City Heat for the first time for both of 'em.

The Redford/Hoffman film was pretty good, the Clint Eastwood/Burt Reynolds film, not so much, but both were cheap, only $3.49, plus tax, each. Not too much more than a rental.

I'll add 'em to the list later.

Saw Precious; sweet merciful crap, that was depressing. Probably in the A range.

Re: Movies Seen in 2010

Saw my first movie of 2010:

Duplicity - C-

There was a lot to like about this movie, mainly Owen and Roberts were good together. However, the plotline falls apart with scenes that jump in and out of flashbacks and questions that make revelations seem meaningless when you think about it some more. I know this is the same director who did Michael Clayton and I think it's not a coincidence that I had issues with both movies, namely, they were slow moving and somewhat dull.

At times, I didn't know what to make of Todd Haynes' highly unconventional Bob Dylan biopic. But I also loved it. Any film that does this much to disrupt the Hollywood form and manages to be released in a relatively large number of theatres is worthy of praise.

I've tried to watch this movie twice. I've become so bored that I've switched to something else. That's saying a lot considering I made it through Land of the Lost (although that one did take me about 5 times).

Re: Movies Seen in 2010

^I was starting to dose off during this movie which is something I don't typically do during movies unless it's really slow or I'm tired. This one was really slow, even though the dosing off was for like 5 or 10 minutes.

A Tale of Two Sisters [C] - The original Korean version of The Uninvited. Supposedly one of the best horror films ever, but I was bored to tears.

Peter Hyams is a well-rounded cinematographer, but that does little to help this film besides elevate it one partial grade from an F. The performances are a mix of passable (Michael Douglas) to terrible (nearly everyone else). The script is a pacing nightmare, with far too many montages that fail to give it a sense of energy and a story logic that is rarely logical. And since Hyams is also the screenwriter and the director, he has to take much of the blame for those problems as well. Capricorn One and 2010: The Year We Make Contact are two enjoyable films by Hyams. And it's been a while since he's made one of those.
