I'm personally just waiting for The Fantastic Mr. Fox. That's going to force Anderson to do something unique and challenge himself, and I'm sure the results are going to be magnificent.

Can you hear the Jack Whales singing?

Beautiful. I wonder what they're saying.

Well actually that's a Sludge Tanker over there...

*Several whales sing*

There you go!

I'm as excited for that as I am for Tim Burton's return to stop-motion animation.

Okay, apart from that. I was thinking about The Nightmare Before Christmas, but he only produced it, didn't direct it.

He's gonna do Alice in Wonderland, not sure if it's live action or stop-mo, but it's got potential to be great.

I would love to imagine he can kick ass on a stop motion Alice, but he's been so hit or miss the past ten years, I'll hold my breath.

Sweeney and Big Fish were definite hits... and that's about it.

Try and work with someone not named Johnny Depp for a while, too, that'd be great. Thanks, Timmy.

Whatever, if you think Depp isn't playing the Mad Hatter you're crazy.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

This is a tough one for me to review. The script and plot is very strong, and the acting is absolutely incredible, but I found it a bit difficult to figure out what the film wants to be. Is it a comedy? Is it a psychological study? A moral tale? A drama? That was frustrating. I'm going to hold out on formally rating this one, but rest assured that I was impressed.

I think some of his best work has been with Johnny Depp.

That said, Big Fish was pretty great.

I agree, but it's refreshing to see him work with some other people, you know?

That's one of the reasons why I loved Big Fish so much.

Can't it be all of them?

It can be LMP.

Been on a big TCM kick last few weeks. Lots of 30's & 40's. Last night Treasure of the Sierra Madre, great as usual. Walter Huston dancing a jig when they find gold, laughing when it's all lost, realizing he's better off without a red centavo. Bogart, as Dobbs, is just magnificent, maybe his best performance. The guy who talks before and after the films made a great point after, when he mentioned the nominee's for best actor that year. Pretty weak list and no Bogart! Some things never change

After that was Crimes & Misdemeanors. I can see LMP? how you could consider it a bit of a downer at the end, I would call it somber. But not too much. The Schubert string quartet when Judah walks in Angelica Huston's apartment and see's her lying there dead is spot on amazing. A really great film, but I prefer Hannah. Probably cuz it's a bit more upbeat.

Fiddler on the Roof - Life in pre-revolutionary Russia as a father deals with marrying off his daughters. Terrific uplifting music.

And a whole bunch more

Watched "The Break-Up" yesterday after randomly pulling a DVD out of our home collection.

The lack of traditional Hollywood ending was interesting, but Aniston and Vaughn have zero chemistry between them and their characters were just plain unlikeable, without the little touches that can make unlikeable characters sympathetic.

Fracture

Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ryan Gosling,...

Synopsis:

When Ted Crawford discovers that his beautiful younger wife, Jennifer, is having an affair, he plans her murder ... the perfect murder. Among the cops arriving at the crime scene is hostage negotiator Detective Rob Nunally, the only officer permitted entry to the house.
Surprisingly, Crawford readily admits to shooting his wife, but Nunally is too stunned to pay close attention when he recognizes his lover, whose true identity he never knew, lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Although Jennifer was shot at point blank range, Nunally realizes she isn't dead.

Crawford is immediately arrested and arraigned after confessing – a seemingly slam-dunk case for hot shot assistant district attorney Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling), who has one foot out the door of the District Attorney's office on his way to a lucrative job in high-stakes corporate law.

But nothing is as simple as it seems, including this case. Will the lure of power and a love affair with a sexy, ambitious attorney at his new firm overpower Willy's fierce drive to win, or worse, quash his code of ethics? In a tense duel of intellect and strategy, Crawford and Willy both learn that a "fracture" can be found in every ostensibly perfect façade.


Caught this last night - It was alright, nothing great. Gosling irritated me. Don't know if it was his accent or that of the character, since I'm not familiar with his work. Overall, alright, but nothing special
