Re: Movies Seen in 2009

Well, I forked over fourteen bucks in advanced to see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at the local IMAX yesterday.

It was stupid, offensive, and I could have gone my whole life without seein' John Turtorro's bare ass on an IMAX screen. I've never before heard a theater full of people go "EEEWW!!!" at the same time.

Of course, there will be another sequel, but I won't be wastin' my money on it.

So, add it to my list.

Gran Torino*
Frost/Nixon
Inkheart*
Fanboys
Friday the 13th (2009)*
The International*
Watchmen*
Monsters vs Aliens*
Fast and Furious*
Star Trek (2009)*
The Soloist*
Battle for Terra*
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Band from TV Concert Video
Drag Me to Hell*
Away We Go*
Terminator: Salvation
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Each movie with a * means I saw it at a free advanced screenin'.

Waltz with Bashir - unusual and good.

Oliver! (the musical from the 60s) - not as good as I remember. However, for a 2 1/2 hr movie, it sure zips along.

Re: Movies Seen in 2009

More old movies I've recently seen:

The Astronaut Farmer [C]
Seven Samurai [A]
The Number 23 [D]
Watership Down [B]
The Prestige [B]
Bee Movie [C]

I'm glad that I finally found three and a half hours to sit down and watch Seven Samurai in one sitting. George Lucas has stated that this film was partially the inspiration for Star Wars, and I can totally see that- the way that some of the action shots were constructed is almost exactly like how he handled those type of shots in the trilogy. I was surprised to see the trademark Star Wars "wipe" shot to cut from scene to scene was also taken from this movie!

Re: Movies Seen in 2009

I've only seen two movies in the theatre this year:
Star Trek
Watchmen


On DVD, I've seen quite a few - probably close to 100 films. Most of them were classic (pre-1965) films however, so I won't bother typing them out as most people around here don't know and don't care about them. I'll just say that I watched alot of Paul Newman pictures this year (for obvious reasons), alot of Tyrone Power pictures (he had a huge boxed set of films come out this past year), alot of Truffaut films (got on a kick), alot of John Mills films (tons came out in the UK this past year as it was his centennial birthday), alot of Dirk Bogarde films (another kick), and several Sean Connery films (he was Star of the Month for May on TCM).

"Modern" movies I've seen this year on DVD:

Underworld
Underworld: Evolution
(looking at BigFoot's avatar every day for about 4 years FINALLY broke me down )
The Reader
P.S. I Love You
Onegin
The White Countess
Support Your Local Sheriff
(could be classified as classic film though since it's 1968)

There are probably a few others, but those are the ones I remember off the top of my head.

Support Your Local Sheriff (could be classified as classic film though since it's 1968)
LOVE THAT MOVIE!

Oh, my god, one of the best James Garner movies, ever.

I keep meanin' to watch the psuedo-sequel, Support Your Local Gunfighter, but I just haven't gotten to it.

Support Your Local Gunfighter is good too, but Support Your Local Sheriff is better, IMO. Although your mileage may vary.

IMO, the best 'comedy' western ever made. Doesn't rely on juvenile 'guy humor' like Blazing Saddles. It's just good old fashion FUNNY.

I love the part where he explains about the jail with no bars, and how 'we're just gonna operate as if there WERE bars, and everything will be fine."

James Garner is, IMO, one of the best (and perhaps one of the most under-recognized) comic actors ever.
