    You are a tough crowd.

    30 Days of Night ★★★ - Nothing spectacular, but an interesting take on Vampires
    Blue Valentine ★★★ - the characters are unlikable and the trailers are EXTREMELY misleading

    Went over to the Ritz earlier tonight for Terror Tuesday and its last Summer of '83 film, Mortuary, featurin' a crazy young Bill Paxton.

    The host introductin' the movie mentioned how it was marketed as a zombie movie, but really its a slasher. And he was right - found the trailer on YouTube, and the poster for it on IMDB seem to make it look like its all about zombies.

    The movie itself is about a young college girl with massive mood swings bein' stalked by a creeper while her widowed mother holds seances with the local mortician. And it has Bill Paxton.

    http://youtu.be/NjqE9fxnXl8

    Not to say its a good movie, bu it wasn't completely unbearable...the write up on the website said the original cut was over two hours. Maybe a restored version would be worth checkin' out.

    I'm just impressed that they flew the copy we watched over from a film archive in England.

    The fishin' boat documentary? I wanted to see that, and Drafthouse ran the trailer for awhile, but they only had one showin' on a Saturday afternoon, so I missed out.

    I wonder why they did that? I know UCLA has a print in their archive (which I saw a couple years ago). Maybe they're not loaning it out anymore.

    Harrowing moral tale that is not entirely as hopeful as the trailers would suggest; it relies on the audience's understanding that Superman's philanthropic potential will be fully reached in the second part. Absolutely beautiful, the second half is mostly cold and distant pieces of metal smashing together, but appropriately full of awe. The "secret" ending ties various aspects of the story together - I get the impression that those who oppose to it, didn't like the movie anyway. The movie people deserve, but not the one they need next time.

    Was in San Antonio for a work conference most of the week.
    A colleague and I went to the North Park Alamo Drafthouse and caught Man of Steel.

    Great place to see a movie!!
    "No one under 6 admitted"
    "Age 6-17 must have an adult"
    Before the previews started the screen simply said,"This is now a no talking zone. One complaint to the manager, you get a warning. Second complaint you are ejected with no refund. Keep your phone, dark, off and in your pocket--no texting or tweeting"

    We've got to get one of these in Nashville!!

    Went out to Alamo Slaughter tonight to see two new movies that open wide tomorrow.

    WHD was an okay action movie, not great. Made me wonder if Olympus has Fallen was a better movie, but I missed out on seein' since my truck broke down about the same time it came out.

    TH was an entertainin' lady buddy cop movie, if a bit too predictable, but at least it didn't include all the good bits in the trailer. And I got a free Mondo poster!

    The Heat is an amusing farce. The sentimental gush only takes up about ten minutes and even it is punctuated with some humor. Sophisticated viewers need to remember that humor is all about conflict. In this movie, that means aggression.

    Melissa McCarthy was pretty damn funny in it.

    And when Sandra Bullock lets loose, its pretty good.

    A week ago I watched Monsters Inc in preperation for this movie. One of the things that really sold the movie for me was the ton of heart it had, and I think the reason for that was because Boo was just so adorable. I didn't get any of that in this movie, and it felt like a paint by the numbers coming of age story. It was nice that they connected college to where Sully and Mike were in Monsters Inc and I did enjoy how their friendship developed in the movie, but I felt like I've seen these type of movies all the time, and Pixar should be above that (I haven't seen Brave). It was an enjoyable couple of hours, but I would probably rank it above Cars 2, which is at the bottom of the list.

    The short though, about the Umbrellas was adorable as heck and I think I almost choked up at the end. This was the Pixar I knew, and it was a really clever short, even though there are others I enjoy more. I wish Netflix would start putting up the Pixar films, especially now that they are putting up Disney films. I actually found the Short much better than the actual movie, and with Pixar, that is an accomplishment.

    Got together with some friends earlier today to watch some classic Doctor Who at Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter. They gave me a ride across town to see Finding Neverland, this month's "Afternoon Tea" movie. Found out if I don't want the tea service (three cups of tea & three snacks of sammiches & cookies), I can get a free ticket on my employee discount.

    I really liked that movie, too. It was so sad, but so sweet...

    My friend Barbara came out to watch it with me, and then she gave me a ride from Lake Creek to the Village, where I will be watchin' the latest documentary from Drafthouse Filmes, A Band Called Death, in about half an hour.

    Got a plan to go to the Ritz tomorrow for the last day of Summer of '83 movies...

    It was a great Saturday afternoon popcorn flick, but it would never stand up to repeat viewings.

    The plot was all over the place and the whole theme of woman empowerment seemed lost in this film. Sandra Bullock's character is just painful to watch and while Melissa McCarthy's character is funny, she plays the same character over and over and it's becoming tired.

    The fact that there is already a sequel in the works before the first one was even done shows how well they thought it would do, but they will have to come up with something a little bit better to bring me back.

    Is there really a theme of woman empowerment? There's lip service but it seems to me that the real theme is the joy of unchecked aggression. It's dramatized by McCarthy's antics, almost all of which are conventionally male. McCarthy even has to put up with clingy one-night stands with delusions about mattering. Bullock's Murtagh validates McCarthy's Riggs by the sincerest form of flattery. The edge of genuine violence in letting males carry on like this is mitigated by having women act out. I suppose you could play with the idea that the whole thing is a sendup of this overused shtick. But I think the movie is far too sincere in its pleasure at McCarthy's triumph of the id. I think the movie works because on one level at least it knows that comedy is conflict. (Yes, I know the cliché says drama is conflict, but this kind of muddy thinking is why so many talented people end up making mediocre or worse movies.)

    I've only seen McCarthy before in Part III, but that was actually a different character.

    They bring it up a couple times with the misogynist male characters (mainly the Albino DEA agent) and either Bullock or McCarthy talk about how awesome they are. If this was going to be a theme on the movie, they should have carried it through the movie instead of picking it up and dropping it whenever it suited them.

    It was a good popcorn flick, but I have no reason to re-watch it.
