    I was able to get into the first showin' of Kick-Ass 2 earlier tonight with my buddy Christopher.

    Pretty good movie with an interestin' continuation of what started in the first movie, especially Jim Carrey's "Colonel Stars & Stripes," a born-again Christian hero who used to be a mob enforcer. The fight sequences were well staged and easy to follow. Dark, twisted humor. And the shadow of Nicolas Cage's "Big Daddy" was used throughout the film.

    If ya go see it, stay through the end credits for a bonus scene!

    A rare visit to the cinema last night to see The World's End, which was great! Simon Pegg seems to have stolen Jim Swallow's beard and my wardrobe, and Martin Freeman is ever more obviously playing Martin Freeman in everything - seriously, the guy is a bit like Roger Moore that way - and the story could have been a Dr Who episode with swearing, but that latter especially is a good thing, and overall we loved it!

    I still have to watch that.

    I wouldn't mind checking out the extended version and I didn't mind the fx. I liked the world-building and the lavish look it gave us.

    139. Limitless (Unrated Extended Cut) (✩✩✩✩½) - Blu-ray - I saw this movie in the theatre, but I'm reviewing it now because I have the unrated extended cut on blu-ray. I'm told that there are several additions here and there, but the only thing that stood out was an extra sex scene that I don't believe was in the theatrical cut. There was also an alternate ending. Anyway, as someone who's always been fascinated with the development of the mind, I loved this movie. And what I especially loved was that it's not a cliched story about the pitfalls of gaining power. If you haven't seen it, do so.

    140. Charly (✩✩✩✩½) - Download - A 1968 movie based on the novel Flowers for Algernon about a mentally and emotionally arrested man who volunteers to undergo an experimental treatment that makes him smarter. Stars Cliff Robertson. After watching the movie, I read that Robertson got an academy award for best actor for this part and I think he deserved it. His progression from slow child-like man to genius was well performed. Another thing I liked about the movie was how it presented sexuality. With a lead actress (Claire Bloom) who was attractive, the right shots and some creative montage work, it got its point across in a wink-wink, nudge, nidge manner quite well. Apparently Robertson wrote a sequel, but that never got made. As for the title, I wonder if it's supposed to be a misspelling of "Charlie". The character's name in the credits does read "Charly", but I still wonder.

    141. Flowers for Algernon (✩✩✩½) - Download - A 2000 TV movie remake of Charly starring Matthew Modine. A great job by Modine, but as a TV movie, it's pretty sentimental and sanitized. Still, it's a nice compliment to Charly. If you're wondering who Algernon is, it's the experimental mouse that became Charlie's friend.

    What did I learn from these three movies? That getting smarter also gets you laid.

    Also, here's a fun fact… Matthew Modine and Cliff Robertson were in a movie together called Wind.

    142. Wind (✩✩✩½) - Netflix - The epic 1992 Matthew Modine vehicle about sailing. Also starred Jennifer Grey. It tried to be grand and intense and it showed. Not great, but not bad either. I don't have much else to say about it, I just felt like watching it after Charly and Flowers for Algernon.

    143. Kick-Ass 2 (✩✩✩½) - Theatre - My review is here. Chloe Moretz stole the show and Christopher Mintz-Plasse was fantastic. Those two are reasons to watch the movie.

    This has gotten pilloried on Rotten Tomatoes, but this is a rare instance where I disagree. It does have tonal issues, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is really not charismatic enough to be a film lead, but it's highly watchable, and Chloe Moretz is terrific (reprising the part that first brought her notice).

    I found this to be well told, with some nice cinematography and I barely noticed it was subtitled. The emotional resonance of all actors involved conveyed with the addition of facial and body language a well paced and tense story about the closing days of the Mayan civilization, outlying tribes and introduction of European explorers. Glad I stuck with this cause the first time Netflix delivered it the disc was unplayable. Mel Gibson may have shown his ass the last few years but professionally he still delivered a well done movie here.

    Next up: The two Stargate SG-1 tele films to wrap up my viewing of the saga.

    Ben Hur (1959) ★★★★ - One of my top 10 favorite movies now. Just an outstanding masterpiece

    The Island ★★ - Too long, too Michael Bayish

    Death on the Diamond ★★★ - Corny, but still enjoyable. It's about a Cardinals pitcher who tries to solve a series of murders (and still get the girl)

    It had a decent idea, who doesn't love a good dystopia?

    But it falls flat on it's face by not exploring the idea of what Sean Bean is doing? There's no talk about how someone could be unique or how the clone could be a person in itself (Yes, the clones do ask that, but they think they are supposed to be alive from conception) Instead we get a bunch of action scenes where McGregor and Johansson magically escape every single time they should be dead (like falling one hundred stories off the face of a building). And why exactly does she follow him out in the first place? Add in some jittery camera shooting and you've taken an idea that could say something profound about the human existence and turned it into an action plot.

    The actors do well with what they are given. McGregor and Johannson do well as the clones that somehow figure it all out. I have only seen Djimon Hounsou in Blood Diamond, so I kept waiting for him to start shouting "Where Is The Diamond!" at any moment. Ethan Phillips shows up, basically playing Neelix without make-up.

    This one only gets a B, because spending the action sequences wishing I was getting a more intellectual movie was exhausting.

    Oblivion - on Demand - Going into the movie I was aware of the major spoiler, I wanted to see how it played out. They decided to go fully Duncan Idaho Ghola on us. I liked the movie but it was like eating rice puffs, it fills you up but doesn't satisfy. There is a disconnect somewhere with Joseph Kosinski direction. Both with Tron Legacy and Oblivion, they were pretty to watch, have amazing world building, good actors, yet the final product lacks any heart. I think he is an incredibly talented director, that has made two good (average) movies.

    Sand Pebbles - AMC - What an incredible movie, so rich and textured. The color and framing of shots, just majestic. I have seen bits and pieces of this before but this was the first time I got to see it as a whole. The movie was riveting from beginning to end. Excellent performances from Richard Crenna as the Captain slipping into madness, Steve McQueen as the anxious ships engineer and Richard Attenborough as love lorn Frenchy.

    Disney Planes - Movie Theater - Was able to take my two boys, 4 & 3 year olds to see Disney's latest from the world of Cars. For my younger son, this was his first trip to a movie theater. Seeing how my older sons first trip to a movie theater was with Cars 2, very nice symmetry going on. My boys are unabashed Cars lovers, they have almost every toy. Even before going to see Planes, they already had several of the characters toys already. So for them, this was a hit. They were talking about it after for hours, they played with their Planes toys and everything was right with the world for them. For me, not so much. While I talked about there being no heart in Oblivion, it goes double for Planes. This is a mash up of Cars 1 & 2, it was like they didn't even try. These are paint by number characters, that have no real depth. There is no real point to the story and no real character development beyond some lip service. I love Cars, I have watched or half watched it with my boys hundred of times. I love the simple take on the true nature of friendship and finding yourself. It teaches a good life lesson without banging you of the head with it. I don't enjoy Cars 2 as much as Cars 1 because I thought it was a lost opportunity, with the passing of Paul Newman. They could have really explored the meaning of loss and being lost and finding yourself again done in the same sweet way as Cars 1. In Cars 2 we got a makeshift environmental trope that didn't go anywhere and a ham-handed fish out of water story, oh and the nature of friendship. Overall Planes was mediocre at best, probably should have stayed a Direct to DVD offering. I know I will be watching this a lot once it hits Blu-Ray, so I have that to look forward to...not.

    I went over to the Ritz Sunday with a plan to see four movies, but wound up sittin' through just the first one. FEP was the Karen Black memorial screenin', and the movie was just so damn slow, I couldn't stay awake for it.

    When it ended, my whole mood was kinda ruined, so I turned in my three other tickets so they could be sold to payin' customers, and left.

    Did a four-movie marathon at the new Lakeline location yesterday.

    The Percy Jackson sequel (the 275th "new to me" movie of the year) was alright, not great. Nathan Fillion's role is almost completely in the trailer, which kinda sucked, and Anthony Stewart Head takes over for Pierce Brosnan. Stanley Tucci got a couple of good lines...and while I imagine a couple of the sequences would look pretty cool in 3D, I'm glad the Drafthouse didn't have it as an option, since the bulk of the climax takes place at night, or in a cave, which would be really, really dark with the glasses on.

    Ashton Kutcher did a really good job as Steve Jobs in the biopic that focusses on the foundin' of Apple Computers in the late '70s/early '80s. And while it tells you a lot about the business, there seems to be very little about the man.

    I still can't figure out how ya such a great roster of genre actors in a movie and it still be duller than dirty dishwater...Paranoia sucked all kinds of ass.

    And the last one of the night was the "based on a true story" The Butler. Oscar bait, obviously, and it completely glossed over service durin' the Ford & Carter administrations, since there didn't seem to be a way to tie it in with the civil rights movement/actions of the butler's oldest son, who went from pacifist to Black Panther in just over a decade. Forest Whitaker carries the movie through the decades, and the supportin' cast was really good, too, though aside from John Cusack's Nixon & James Marsden's JFK, seems to me that most every other president was a cameo.

    Still gotta see We're the Millers & Blue Jasmine in the next couple of days, before this weekend's big releases open on Thursday night.

    - edit, to add -

    Came into work early to see a couple of movies this afternoon.

    WtM was actually pretty funny, enjoyed it quite a bit. And the bloopers at the end were good, too.

    BJ wasn't as good, but still an interestin' look at a woman who changes the details of her life to suit what she wants it to be instead of what it actually is....yeah. Good movie, but the stoner-ish comedy was better.

    I've seen some entertaining movies this year, but in truth, 2013 pales in comparison to 2012 so far. Before Midnight is the first great film of the year. Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke return to the characters they know so intimately, and deliver what feels like the perfectly logical followup to the relationship we saw in the previous two movies. They vary things up a bit here: the film doesn't have a ticking clock, and features a reasonable amount of Jesse and Celine interacting with other characters, which never happened in the first two.

    Clear History - HBO
    The Apparition - HBO

    Hung out at the motel yesterday, watched a couple of movies on HBO and napped a lot.

    Clear History was about a guy (Larry David) who ridicules the idea of an electric car model named "the Howard" and refuses to be a part of its marketin'. So, he resigns...and the Howard becomes a huge success and David's character changes his name and hides out in Martha's Vineyard for a decade. When the creator of the Howard (Jon Hamm) comes to M'sV, David begins to plot his revenge.

    Really good cast that included Eve Mendes, Michael Keaton, and Kate Hudson, but the movie was off the wall stupid, especially Larry David's rants, which reminded me of why I don't like Seinfeld and never watched his series on HBO.

    Followed that up with The Apparition, which suggests that if ya don't believe in ghosts, you can't be hurt by ghosts, even if the ghosts are doin' everything they can to make ya believe in 'em so they can kill ya and stuff.

    Terrible freakin' movie.

    And if ya watch the trailer, they include the last scene of the movie in it, which makes no sense at all.

    Yes, it's a chick flick, but I think knowing that going in and expecting it to be awful helped increase it's grade when it surprised me.

    There is real heart in this movie, unlike a lot of American made ones, where you just know that even if they fight, cheat, break-up with each other, they will get back together. Yes there is some of that here, but to even have a storyline like Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson's is groundbreaking, at least in my opinion. Showing that not everything perfect in a movie like this helped it out in my view.

    But it also has some great humor. Martin Freeman and Joanna Page having small talk while doubling for sex scenes was perfect humor. And who doesn't love Rowan Atkinson?

    Guys, if your girlfriend/wife is bugging you to watch a chick flick, make her throw this one in.

    I've already talked about this film early in the year but Life of Pi was on HBO tonight and I ended up watching most of it. Man what an incredible film this was. Maybe it was light on story, but the visual effects and what they did with the Tiger is nothing short of movie mastery. If I have one regret, it was I didn't see this film in 3D because if there was ever a movie where it was still worth going to the movie theater just for the experience, this movie was it. Avatar may say they were they best visual effects movie of the last several years, but I say Life of Pi was better.

    Wasn't there some controversy over the visual effects company who did this movie? I remember something about the visual effects people being pulled off the stage at the Oscars but I wasn't sure if it was for this movie or another one.

    Life Of Pi? Rhythm & Hues put so much into that they ended up going bankrupt when it was released. At the Oscars - which they won for best visual effects - their boss's microphone was cut off and the band started playing over him when he tried to bring up the company's fate during his acceptance speech.

    Director Ang Lee leapt straight to their defence by complaining that the effects cost too much, and thanking everybody except* the visual effects crew at his acceptance speech... Oh, wait.

    A highly atypical film from director Lee Daniels, at times remarkably restrained (particularly in its central performance), though the enormous timespan covered by the film still leads to a lot of eras being summed up in really on-the-nose ways. The casting of the film is by times highly effective and strange. The whole story really would be better-served by a miniseries, but it's still a decent movie. The makeup used on the actors is superb; some of the best I've seen in recent years.
