87. Inception (A)

Finishing my Nolan watch/rewatch. This movie went a bit up in my esteem on rewatching it; it really is a quite marvelous narrative construction, and one can see why Nolan brought back so many of these actors for his next film (the ones who weren't already in the Batman series, of course). We'll see if Christian Bale books any more return engagements.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012

58. Sleepaway Camp ✭✭½

It's an interesting slasher film, but the acting is just so horrible it's hard to take seriously. There is definitely some shocking material in the film, though. I don't want to spoil the ending, but it's pretty bizarre.

59. Saved! ✭✭✭

I wanted to like this movie more than I did, but the third act really fell apart and resorted to Teen Movie Cliches! I'm a huge Jena Malone fan, and she practically carried the movie.

60. Absentia ✭✭✭½

This is how you make a low budget horror film! I'm pretty hard to scare and I got a handful of actually chills from this movie. I really don't want to spoil anything about this film. It's on Netflix, go check it out.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012

The Dark Knight Rises - IMAX - While I thought it was a great movie, I consider it only good as a Batman movie. There were many problems with the movie logic and execution wise but not enough to effect the enjoyment of the movie, until to analyze it later.

The Good
Of course Bane, I skeptical of Tom Hardy at first. Even after seeing Him in Bronson. However his presence in DKR is palpable. He embodied Bane in every single way.

Selina Kyle (cat woman) I was actually impressed with Anne Hathaways performance here and consider here the actual standout of the movie.

Bad
Marion Cotillard I'm sorry, she was just awful in the movie. She was really distracting, I have liked her in other things. So it was a huge disappointment.

If you can see it IMAX, please do. It's the only way to experience it.

Batman in the Nolan films has been a secondary character. I agree with that feeling.
He was even more backseat for this film. Long, long stretches with no Batman in a Batman film.
Yeah, and I think why it affected me in this movie other than the others is that the secondary characters didn't give the movie that "batman" feel. For example, in Batman Begins, that was all Christian Bale and his growth into Batman and as origin movies go, it was very very good. Also, we got to meet the other main characters for the first time, who seemed to have a bigger part like Commissioner Gordon, Fox, and Alfred. That continued in Dark Knight, but that had the extra benefit of Heath Ledger just being so very good as the Joker.

In Dark Knight Rises, the main characters were Bane, Blake, and Tate. The characters were grew to love kind of took a back seat and Hardy, while a good actor, is no Heath Ledger. Because of that, I noticed how much of an un-batman movie this felt, even though I still really really enjoyed it.

90. Total Recall (1990)

I've never seen this before, but since a new version is coming out this year, I finally did. It was better than I expected and I was especially impressed by the mutant effects/puppets.

110. Hotel for Dogs (C)
111. Election (B)


Hotel for Dogs: Ah, family entertainment, where teenage love is never sexual, kids can commit numerous crimes (theft, trespassing, even reckless endangerment) without repercussions, and a teacher and a social worker can afford to live in New York City, as well as buy and operate a hotel that appears to be free. The appeal here is with the animals, not the humans, and sequences that exclude the humans entirely (or simply make them the butt of jokes) are the best the film has to offer. And, Gods, do the Hollywood studios spend considerably less money on visual effects when it comes to this sort of thing? I've seen better looking work on Babylon 5.

Election: Don't be confused by Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon's presence in this movie -- this is a dark, cynical comedy, more so than Alexander Payne's later work. At times, it's surprising that a major studio (Paramount) backed the film, especially since the characters remain so utterly delusional throughout (four of them provide voice over illuminating their inner thoughts, which are often foolish). Even the epilogue, the result of testing and re-shoots, emphasizes this point, especially when it comes to Broderick's character. Visually, however, the movie is rather unappealing. No doubt this is partly the point, but I'd argue that the blandness of Omaha (where most of the film was shot) is to the film's detriment, and Payne doesn't provide the same level of editorial and photographic interest that he would later bring to a film like Sideways.

Re: Movies Seen in 2012

Went to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2D yesterday. I think it played better than it did in 3D, which is how I saw it when it first opened.

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut - DVD

Found the DVD of the special version of Superman II at Wal-Mart for five bucks & picked it up the other night.

Just finished watchin' it for the first time..and I gotta say, I'm disappointed. First, aside from usin' Jor-El (Marlon Brando) in the Fortress of Solitude, there wasn't a whole lot different, and there was some stuff in the "regular" sequel that I liked more than what was shown in this one.

And the endin' turns Superman into a bully who is beatin' up on a guy for no real reason...

Class of 1984 (1982) - free admission

Went up to the Drafthouse Village tonight for Class of 1984, one of the movies in the Summer of '82 series. And I wasn't the only employee there, which I thought was pretty funny, considerin' how small the crowd was...

The story was pretty straightforward - an idealistic music teacher takes a job in an inner city school full of criminals and has to take the law into his own hands because the police won't do anything.

Aside from the language & full female nudity, there wasn't much seperatin' this from a bad afterschool special.

But it was pretty cool to see Roddy McDowell and Michael J Fox in the movie.
