    Alien: With a new trailer for Prometheus seemingly coming out every day, it seemed time to finally re-watch this series (this time, on Blu-Ray). I'm happy to report that the first film really holds up. Sure, there are a few things that date the movie (like the predominance of CRT displays instead of flat screens, but given the movie's dirty, tactile future aesthetic, they're not too out of place) but for the most part it still looks wonderful. The creature design is as great as ever, too (even in the face of being endlessly ripped off since). Of course, it helps when you've managed to assemble one of the best casts ever for a science fiction/horror hybrid like this. Hopefully, Ridley Scott's long-awaited return to science fiction will be as good as this (and, of course, Blade Runner).

    Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocal - discount theater
    The Butterfuly Effect - DVD

    Went up to the discount theater yesterday to see the fourth Mission Impossible, since I missed it durin' the original run.

    I liked it - not as good as the third, which is still my favorite, but still well worth watchin'. Great action, good humor, and nice continuity with the rest of the film series.

    There was also a joke that I was the only one in the theater who laughed at it. My friend Barbara gave me the look that she always gives me right before sayin' I'm a twelve year old...but couldn't say it, since we were in a theater.

    Couldn't sleep when I got in last night, so I popped in The Butterfly Effect to watch. I really don't get how the guy was able to travel back in time...he reads his journals, and that's it? Seriously?!?

    Ah, well...at least the double feature DVD (which has the first sequel) only cost a dollar at Half Price Books.

    I saw the version they showed in the theater the other night...I imagine its the version that came out on disc the other day.

    I'm not upset, since I wouldn't be able to spot any changes if it wasn't the original, its still a good movie.

    16. Contagion - C-. Was pretty disappointed in this movie. I never felt invested in any of the characters, and therefore didn't care if the epidemic was solved or not. If not for the memorable last scene of the movie, I'd call it completely forgettable.

    17. Casablanca - A. Saw it on the big screen during one of the 70th anniversary showings. It's a little hard to really "see" this movie for the first time, since so many of it's lines have been parodied or referenced in other films. Still a very good movie. The pacing is one of it's stronger points. I never really felt like I was watching a movie that was 70 years old.

    After gettin' back in from dinner last night, I watched The Butterfly Effect 2 since the DVD was still in my laptop and I didn't feel like changin' it out.

    Also, Erica Durance was in it...love her from Smallville.

    But in this, the time travel is even dumber, and not even consistent with the first movie. At least when Ashton Kutcher changed history, he got the new memories of the altered reality, too. In this, the guy has to kind of wing it, and is consistently surprised by his new life changes.

    Also, its done by photographs...how can he not have learned about this ability sooner?

    Ah, well...two movies on DVD for a dollar, I shouldn't complain too much about 'em, I guess.

    The Raid: Redemption: At least one critic hailed this martial arts extravaganza as the "best action movie in decades." Others have compared it to Die Hard. After seeing the movie, I can only report that as hyperbole. It's a satisfying martial arts action movie with occasional lulls between fight sequences for plot and characterization that are both paper thin. Actually, to call the characters paper thin would be generous; of the six that are even identifiable, none posses more than a single character trait. There aren't any fight scenes as impressive as you'll find in the work of Tony Jaa, but the fight scenes are never boring. There's also one excellently designed suspense sequence and a couple of memorable gags that I won't reveal here (one involving a refrigerator is particularly creative).

    Used my employee perk to check out a couple of movies tonight.

    First up, Sound of Noise, a Swedish film about a group of six drummers (the woman ringleader & five men) who use common objects found in an operatin' room (includin' the patient) & a bank, construction equipment & power lines to make music. Regarded as terrorists for their actions, the police investigator who gets the case is from a family of well-regarded musicians, but he is tone deaf.

    Its actually kind of awesome in its way. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and all through the movie, I kept thinkin' that if there were to be an American remake, it should be set & filmed here in Austin.

    If ya get the chance to see it, ya should do so...not sure how many of y'all would have access to a foreign language film in theaters, though.

    My second movie of the night was The FP, an over the top silly movie about two rival gangs who settle their disputes with a Dance Dance Revolution style video game. Distributed by Drafthouse Films, I've been seein' the trailer for the damn thing since I started workin' for the Alamo, finally decided to see what the hell its really about.

    Really glad it was a free admission...

    I'll be housesittin' for some friends this week, and they have Netflix, so I'll be watchin' quite a bit of stuff startin' tomorrow!!! Also have a plan to get together with friends to see My Fair Lady & Harold & Maude tomorrow...never seen either of those, especially not on the big screen! Hope they don't sell out!

    - edit, to add -

    Missed out on My Fair Lady, but did get to see Harold & Maude with my friend Angie. She's seen it before, but it was new to me. I was prepared to see a few, "Dear God!" moments, but sweet jesus, that's a dark movie.

    Well worth watchin', but damn...

    For those who may not know, its the story of a death-obsessed teen who forms a relationship with a 79 year old woman after several meetings at random funerals.

    Watchin' The Double, a spy thriller with Richard Gere, Topher Grace & Martin Sheen, via Netflix Instant now.

    Streep is of course great as Thatcher and her performance is the best part of the film. Otherwise it suffers from grazing a lot of things but never taking the time to actually focus on anything (and there were a few strange music choices).

    Really fun movie, some nice action scenes without being too over the top. I think it's an easy story to follow and honestly better if you haven't read the book first. If only cause you will not be second guessing certain things. You'll just take them as they come. A more detailed write up is in the review thread here.

    The Hunger Games

    Before this last week, I didn't know what the Hunger Games were. When I found out it was based on books much in the same vain as Twilight and Harry Potter, I wondered why I didn't know much about it before and why was I out of the loop on this stuff. Going in, I honestly didn't know what the plot of the movie was, and didn't know what kind of expectations to have for something like this.

    Well, I went to this movie this morning and tonight I'm still thinking about it. I think I need to see Winter's Bone again because the highlight of this movie for me was Jennifer Lawrence. I'm really starting to like her as an actress but for some reason I didn't grab onto Winter's Bone like others seemed to. As for the movie, there were a lot of things that made me feel uncomfortable, and I think that was the movie's point. I didn't feel this uncomfortable since 127 hours when the boulder comes crashing down on the guys arm but that's a different movie. Here, the thought of this dystopian world is terrifying, and to have kids killing each other for ratings is painful, emotionally. I was surprised this movie and books were aimed towards the younger generation because watching some of this movie made me feel a bit quesey. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it because I did, and the quesiness feeling added to it. People are complaining that we didn't see a lot of the deaths in the movie and I think maybe that had a greater impact. You can kill anytime anywhere and make it look greusome. Here, what worked was the movie played on your emotions, how you feel for these characters, and just the idea of kids being forced to kill other kids. There was a line in this movie that I really liked and pretty much summarized the movie really well. "The only emotion greater than fear is hope. Give them a little hope". (Maybe that's not the line verbatim, but the idea remains.

    I think if there was a problem I had with the movie was that I wished some of the other tributes were a little fleshed out, and Gale apparently has a major role in the next few movies. Maybe a lot of the backstory will be brought to the table in the next movie because this one felt kind of on the straight and narrow. Other than that, very good film.

    21 Jump Street

    A very different kind of movie, and a funny one at that. Not the funniest movie I've seen, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    The most Canadian movie made by a Hollywood studio in many a year. This is my first rewatch since it came out, and it's still a really fun exercise in style that also has a core substance. It's a shame that it failed, though in many respects that's not surprising, because movie audiences rarely seem that receptive to these kinds of genre-blending stories.

    Actually, an upcoming movie that sort of reminds me of this is, of all things, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead), which has a very pulp/"awesome" premise that comics fans tend to revel in. We'll see how that does (both commercially and as a movie).

    Had to stay awake last night, so I watched No Strings Attached...mostly 'cause it has Natalie Portman. The movie wasn't all that great, but it was kinda cool to see Kevin Kline in a supportin' role as Ashton Kutcher's father. Basically, is a rom com with Natalie Portman as the man...

    Watchin' Being Elmo now, a documentary about the puppeteer who works as Elmo.

    Also, in case y'all didn't know, Harold & Maude is on Netflix Instant...

    Watched the Louis CK stand up special when I got in from work last night. I don't see what the big deal is about this guy...hour & a half of his routine, and I laughed maybe three times.

    Watched Gamer this morning...basically its the idea of The Sims and a Halo-esque first person shooter usin' real people as the avatars for gamers. The Sims folks are volunteers who claim to be actors & actresses while the Halo folks are death row inmates who hope to get their freedom. And the creator of both games has a plan to take over the world...

    Lots of familiar faces in the cast, but overall, the movie was pretty disappointin'...

    Watchin' Rising Sun via Netflix Instant now. I read the book years ago, first time seein' the movie.

    Villains not simply killing the heroes is a problem in many films, but in this case it's especially bad, because villains wanting to kill the heroes was the whole point.
    There were a few nice character moments (which probably only work if you know some backstory from the comics) and good voice work, but in general I found this to be quite bad.

    Watched the '75 drag race movie with David Carradine & Sylvestor Stallone this mornin'. The kitbashed cars were the highlight of the movie.

    Watchin' the third BHC movie now...I've talked a lot of crap about the movie, but haven't seen it all the way through before. And since its on Netflix now, figured I might as well, especially if there really is a fourth on the way in 2013.

    - edit, to add -

    Watched the hour & a half documentary about Sylvestor Stallone & the makin' of his action movie, The Expendables. Pretty sure its a bonus feature on a disc somewhere, but first time I've seen it.

    My mother admitted to having seen this multiple times on its initial release, though she didn't remember any of the coarse parts. Which is perhaps in keeping with the general popcultural memory, which is mostly about John Travolta dancing to the Bee Gees. But this is actually a pretty gritty movie, with our young main characters being casually sexist and racist at points, and multiple instances of attempted (or successful) date rape. Makes most of the films aimed at the college crowd these days look tame by comparison. Great soundtrack, great performance by Travolta (the best of his that I've seen, really).

    Isn't that memory of the movie partially the result of a far tamer, PG-version that was released at some point? Or am I imagining having seen that in video stores in the early 90s?

    Yes, there was one of those, so that might be part of it (certainly, that's a version my mother is more likely to have seen; she doesn't like anything remotely upsetting).
