    Bruce Willis and Tracey Morgan in this buddy cop flick that feels like it's trying to be in the vein of Lethal Weapon. Especially when they toss in Sean William Scott as the thief that is befriended by our duo. He's essentially in the Joe Pesci role. I felt like Bruce did as good as could be expected for the role. It's the first movie of his I've seen in awhile I didn't just instantly like as I was watching it though. I just didn't buy Tracey Morgan as a cop AT ALL, not with that characterization. In hindsight looking at Willis career choices by and large of late he seems to be doing mostly films that might be or already are considered a franchise. He did R.E.D., that sequel is shooting. He took a larger role for Expendables 2, he is in the upcoming G.I.Joe2, of course Die Hard 5 and I think this was probably presented to him as a new spin on Lethal Weapon. His Moonrise Kingdom and Looper's are probably a break from franchise choices.

    Agreed. Have you seen the Spanish-language version of Dracula? It takes the same script, but is a little more cinematic in terms of camera placement and movement. Lugosi is probably better than his Spanish-language counterpart, though.

    After two decades' hiatus, Indy returns again, for one of what has become a trend of "old action heroes reprising their roles in their sunset years" films. This attracted some serious dislike from portions of the fandom, and I can understand their POV, even if I don't share it.

    Probably the biggest change is that in the 20 years between Last Crusade and this, we've got from the era of practical effects to the era of CGI, and the whole feel of the film is very different. Actually, the film reminds me quite a lot of the sort of madcap action Spielberg would later do in his CGI The Adventures of Tintin -- but I don't think this is really so big a leap for the movies, particularly with things like Indy and co.'s exit from the plane in Temple of Doom. It is a bit amusing that Dr. Jones seems to get tougher the older he gets, but action heroes tend to shed any remaining human vulnerabilities as they go along (compare the most trailer for the fifth Die Hard movie with McClane's activities in the first one).

    Then there's the complaint, most famously verbalized in South Park, about aliens not belonging in an Indiana Jones movie. Seriously, why? Why do so many people think this is outside the sort of thing you'd see in these stories? It makes no sense to me, given the sort of pulp source material the Indy series was inspired by, and this already included pretty pervasive supernatural elements. Sci-fi explanations for ancient archaelogy is a pretty standard genre trope.

    Oh, and there's Shia LaBeouf. No real defence there, he's lame. It's nice to see Karen Allen back, and I enjoyed Blanchett as the main bad guy.

    Cinema: 34
    Home Video: 75 (+1)
    Computer: 13

    I've heard of that, but I haven't seen it.

    Had to go to a realtors office near a Drafthouse, so I wound up gettin' the paperwork I needed, and goin' to see a movie.

    First up, I saw Looper again. Its still awesome.

    Then I went to see Cloud Atlas. I will definately be goin' to see it again, just so I'm not distracted tryin' to figure out which actors are playin' which characters in the different eras of the movie.

    And now I'm waitin' for the midnight showin' of The Man with the Iron Fists at a different Drafthouse...

    Preach it! I can understand certain aesthetic complaints in regards to the filming technique and any given scene one has as "cheesy"(for me it's swinging with the monkey's) but I get that as a nod to the Tarzan films of the 50's which is where the film seems to be taking it's nostalgia.

    Aliens aren't that big a leap if they are a leap at all. The in story issue I had was that Lucas/Speilberg or whoever couldn't just leave it at aliens. They had to "live in the spaces between the spaces" and the extra narrative is my :rolleyes:.

    The online beef with the "nuke fridge" and yet in TDKR nary a peep about Batman's nuke escape.
    KoCS is a much better film, with a few admitted issues, than many want to admit.

    While the "alternate reality" was a nice idea, the film as a whole was just average.

    Went to the first 3D show of the day for the new one from Disney. I enjoyed it - the established game character cameos were well done, and I liked seein' 'em poke fun at the first person shooters.

    There was a nice short before the movie, and a trailer for Monsters, Inc, which is gettin' re-released, this time in 3D, next month.

    Just about to see Flight, it starts in ten minutes. Gotta get the new movies out of the way, since I work openin' shifts the rest of the weekend...

    Robert Zemeckis returns to the land of live-action for the first time since 2000, while Denzel Washington takes his first non-paycheque role in a while, and shags a white woman onscreen for the first time I can recall.

    This is a rare bird indeed: an adult-targeted, R-rated character drama produced by a major studio. It's also a pretty big departure from Zemeckis, who hasn't done anything R-rated in a very long time, and Washington only occasionally heads into territory like this, but in doing so he gives one of his best performances, and his best in a very long time (and I'm a big fan of the work he did in American Gangster). It's got a large cast of strong actors, including Bruce Greenwood, Don Cheadle, Tamara Tunie (who has one really dynamite scene), and John Goodman (who is prominent in the advertising but only has really three scenes, and who also appears to have borrowed his wardrobe from Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski). Kelly Reilly has the other really substantive role in the movie apart from Washington, and delivers a terrific performance. As you'd expect from Zemeckis, the technical aspects of the film are matchless.

    Oh, and Nadine Velazquez looks great naked.

    Really going to try to see this movie this weekend (Maybe Monday). I've been looking forward to it for a while and it looks really really good. I'm happy for all the positive reviews.

    Two movies tonight, at two different theatres downtown; there was about a half-hour between them, which lined up nicely. The evening progressed from the sublime to the ridiculous.

    To start, Disney delivers their best film since The Lion King (not to say it's that good, mind you), easily outclassing the last two films from Pixar (indeed, while it will take some rewatching, I think this sits happily in that company). I have very little experience with the arcade games that form the basis for this, so I'm not even in the older nostalgia crowd, but the film works wonderfully on every level, from the animation, to the story, to the terrific voicework (particularly John C. Reilly).

    125. The Room (F)

    That would probably also be an A+ in terms of entertainment value, between the constant hilarity of the movie itself and the enjoyable group theatre experience. This is the first F I've handed out, because usually even terrible mainstream movies have some technical merit and basic scene construction.

    I've seen the internet highlight reels, but I couldn't miss this screening of Tommy Wiseau's masterpiece. And there's so much more to it then a ten-minute collection of clips could get across, including irrelevant supporting characters, the full extent of the pointless sex scenes, and dialogue where every sentence seems only tangentially related to the preceding and subsequent ones. It's the kind of thing that can only be made when someone with no talent is absolutely convinced that they're making art.

    Both movies highly recommended, though for very different reasons.

    303. How to Train Your Dragon (✩✩✩✩) - Live TV - A viking village called Berk has been attacked by fearsome dragons for generations and the people have always fought back. Their entire culture has been built around killing these monsters as trophies. Then one day after an attack, a cowardly boy finds an injured dragon and instead of killing it, he ends up taming it through understanding rather than bringing it down through brute force. I found this to be an insightful morality tale with substance and fun characters. It's good for all ages. And for a kids movie it takes you places you don't expect.

    After the movie was done, I saw the first two episodes of Dragons: Riders of Berk. It picks up with the same characters and much of the all-star voice cast. Given that it's a series, the animation isn't as sharp, but it's good. Story-wise, I look forward to seeing how it goes since it promises to expand on the world and mythology. It's like The Matrix though, in that the story has already been told, so there doesn't appear to be too much else they can do beyond just showing us more stuff with dragons.

    304. Flight (✩✩✩✩) - Theatre - The trailer made it seem like this was a movie full of humorous absurdity. That was a good hook because the event surrounding the plane got people into seats. What we got instead was a story about something else. It was a solid and occasionally humorous drama that dealt with a man and his personal troubles.

    The ending was heartfelt, but...

    In a way, it's too bad he blew it all.
    I also had one gripe… Looked like the plane didn't skid far enough after it hit the ground.

    While by no means a great comedy, it was funnier than I expected, so I'd consider it two hours well spent.

    Just got back from Flight. I thought DW was great in it, but I'm kind of mixed on the story. I like that he's not a perfect character without flaws, but I'm a little skeptical at how quickly he goes into a downward spiral in dealing with the pressures of the investigation. That's not to belittle the effects that addiction can have on a person, cause I know sometimes it's very much like that. But I think one accurate criticism I've read is that the movie doesn't spend a lot of time on the media's perception that, known flaws or not, Whitaker is a hero for landing the plane under the circumstances he did, and keeping most of the passengers and crew alive. It focuses instead on his problems and his inability to keep his head straight long enough to avoid going to jail, even though presumably he's successfully lied about his addictions on many flights.

    He wasn't under investigation for drug and alcohol abuse before.

    Right, but he's smart enough to know how bad such investigations could be for him under the most ideal circumstances, and the film's setup seems to be based on the assumption that, despite those problems, Whitaker is still an exceptionally skilled pilot. That's presumably why he's able to land the plane in relatively one piece with few casualties. So if he knows that his skill could have accomplished that, at least partially, and he knows not to let his addictions become obvious enough to get him reprimanded or fired, why does the movie so quickly abandon that premise and just show Whitaker getting drunk out of his gourd at every opportunity?

    I just feel like the good premise gets a bit drowned in the addiction aspect (no pun intended :angel:), and it's unfortunate because it denies Whitaker the chance to have some heroic tendencies. He's not perfect, but he's clearly not a completely bad person either.
