Spent Sunday afternoon with Netflix or a DVD.

RotZ sucked in every way possible. Low budget, bad writin', repetative dialogue, cheap effects...I only watched it 'cause LeVar Burton was in it.

Followed that up with IT on DVD...I bought my copy of it awhile back, finally opened it the other day. I had seen the beginnin' on HBO last year, watched it all the wah through Sunday. Cillian Murphy is awesome in everything, all the time.

Spent Monday at the movies.

First, it was TPBtP with my friend K/C. I tempted her with the idea that it was a Bradley Cooper movie, and was so kindly informed for future reference that Ryan Gosling trumps Bradley Cooper.

I was really impressed with the movie, and I can't remember the last time I watched a film that switched its focus from the initial main character to a second main character midway through without losin' stride or focus in the story. I didn't care for the huge leap forward for the third part of the film, but it was necessary, I suppose, to conclude the story.

After K/C left, I stayed at the theater to see 42. I went just for Harrison Ford as the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Added bonus of seein' John C McGinley, Christopher Meloni & Alan Tudyk in supportin' roles. But I didn't care much for the actor playin' Jackie Robinson, and hated pretty much anything that wasn't about the baseball team.

Got a plan to see Olympus has Fallen and To the Wonder in the near future, and Oblivion opens Thursday night. Lookin' forward to seein' that...

33. The Dark Knight Returns pt.2: A+
34. Batman: Gotham Knight: B
35. Superman/Shazam: Return of Black Adam: A-
36. Batman: Year One: B
37. Batman/Superman: Apocalypse: A+

An excellent adaptation of the first arc of the Bats/Supes title and it had the right voice actors. Even Ed Asner as Granny Goodness worked perfectly. This is one I'd buy to add to my collection for the right price.

39. A Serious Man (A)

My second viewing of the film, the first since it came out back in 2010. It scored a Best Picture nomination at the time (one of the many signs that the Academy voters aren't using those extra slots like the board of directors wanted). "Ambiguity" has become one of the most misused concepts in contemporary serious cinema, but the Coens use it to perfection here. The film is also a delightful depiction of a particular place and time in Jewish-American culture. This is one of the Coens' more underrated movies, despite getting strong reviews at the time.

Got together with friends for a double feature Wednesday night.

First up, the Action Pack's Quote Along for Clue: The Movie with my friend Barbara. Props for the interactive viewin' included bells, flashlights, champagne poppers, and we were two seats away from the host and his confetti canon for when the chandilier first falls behind Mustard. There was a speciality cocktail, too, which I tried. It was kinda tart, but worth it.

Followed that up with my second viewin' of Jurassic Park 3D with my buddy James. He enjoyed it.

When I got in from the movies, I watched Leviathan via Netflix Instant. It was such an obvious ripoff of Alien, only set under the Earth ocean, instead of outer space. Motley crew of civilian employees workin' for a company that could give a flyin' fuck encounter an unknown threat that kills 'em one by one. At least it had actors I like in it.

My 150th "new to me" movie of the year was The Conversation via Netflix Instant this afternoon. I'm absolutely convinced that Gene Hackman's character in that movie was the same character in Enemy of the State. And I miss Gene Hackman...sucks that he's been retired for freakin' ever. Means its only a matter of time 'til I see all his movies.

Went back out to the Alamo Drafthouse for another double feature tonight.

First up, a filmed presentation of the stage play for Great Expectations from London's West End. I admit, I haven't read the book, but I really enjoyed seein' it like this. One set, two acts, and told as a memory/dream by the older Pip...

I may have to find a copy of the book, 'cause I overheard a woman tell her friends, "And now I'll tell you the real story on the way home!"

Followed that up with the premiere viewin' of Oblivion at ten o'clock.

I thought that was a good one, too. An interestin' scifi movie that isn't a remake, reboot, sequel, prequel or from Stephanie Meyer....Tom Cruise was still Tom Cruise, and Morgan Freeman isn't in it as much as ya might think from the trailer, but still a good movie.

I may go to see Upstream Color tomorrow before work, haven't decided for sure yet. And I still have To the Wonder and Olympus has Fallen to get to!

Re: Movies Seen In 2013


55. Surviving My Mother (✩✩✩✩½) - DVD - Caroline Dhavernas is always fun to watch, especially when she plays a sex crazed young woman. The movie is about a lot of things. I liked that but apparently others felt that it was too unfocused and this is why it got a lower score from the public than it did from me.

56. Oblivion (✩✩✩✩) - Theatre - A great piece of scifi. Visually stunning and it had a pretty good story that kept my attention all the way through. In the end, it felt a bit "put together" but it was still a fun ride.

35. Superman/Shazam: Return of Black Adam: A-
36. Batman: Year One: B
37. Batman/Superman: Apocalypse: A+
38. Superman vs The Elite: B+

I wasn't really impressed with The Elite as a "team". I'm really only aware of them in a name only manner. Since so much else felt source adherence I'm going to say they likely were 98% spot on as well. Not a group I'd care for even as anti-heroes really. I found the more mature language by the characters and realization of Lois and Clark's home life to be refreshingly "real". The final fight was well done and even though this hasn't been a favorite of mine Warners Animation does a solid job. My Warners animation catch up is about over after a few more.

57. Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (✩✩✩) - Download - Short and fun, but I didn't like it's simplistic philosophy on being good.

58. Premium Rush (✩✩✩½) - Download - General Zod goes after the new Batman. It was a fun end-of-summer movie.

59. The Pill (✩✩✩✩) - Download - …as in the morning after pill. It's a fun independent movie about sex, relationships and cheating. Anna Chlumsky is in it. She's not the female lead, but she's there and it's nice to see her getting back into acting.

60. The Grey (✩✩✩) - Blu-ray - Liam Neeson & Co. fight angry wolves after their plane goes down in the wilderness. Good job of making the wolves real characters and menacing but I didn't like the ending.

61. Robot & Frank (✩✩✩½) - Download - A charming buddy movie about an aging cat burglar with alzheimer's and a robot his son got to look after him. It's a good look at non-judgemental friendship. Stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler and James Marsden. It never got a wide release, but it's worth checking out. Lovely soundtrack too.

Seems so obvious when I read that now but I don't recall thinking it or reading it in the reviews at the time. Oliver Twist, of course.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013

Best of Both Worlds Parts 1&2 - Theater - I went to the Fantom Events showing of Star Trek: TNG Best of Both Worlds Parts 1&2. I thought for sure that I would be the only person in the theater but I was presently wrong. Their was an actual good size crowd, I would say more then 50 people. The night started off with trivia and pictures being shown on screen. Then the presentation started with the new documentary on Best of Both Worlds. Then the episodes, followed by bloopers and out takes from the episodes and it finished with a preview of the release of Season 4 of TNG. I was a bit sad we didn't get an exclusive clip or trailer for Into Darkness but that's okay.

Seeing it again made me realize exactly how great these two episodes were. I often vacillate between which are the best episode of TNG and I think for me that seeing this again has put that to bed, for me for awhile anyway. With everything going on in the episodes you kinds forget about all the character development that actually happens in this episode. Everyone remembers Elizabeth Dennehy from the episode but George Murdock was great as the Admiral. While I liked Jonathan Frakes, I was never really a fan of Riker. However revisiting these episode has given me a new appreciation for his work. I think he really did the heavy lifting in these episodes and he was up to the task.

Got into work early last Saturday, and took in a showin' of Upstream Color, which was a mildly bizarre movie about a woman who is kidnapped, hypnotized, and compelled to ruin her own life before she is released and winds up havin' a relationship with another victim of the same mindbendin' kidnapper.

Gotta say, Cars 2 is now my least favorite Pixar movie.

Went to the Fatham Event's screenin' of TNG 'The Best of Both Worlds', and yes, I'm countin' it since the updated effects, the edits to the end of part one, and feature-length presentation made it a new way to see an old favorite.

I wore my yellow DS9 uniform to the event, and while the theater had a good sized crowd, no one else came in costume. There were a few Trek-themed t-shirts, though.

Watchin' Anonymous via Starz on Demand now...and it kinda sucks.
