Julie and Julia 9/10














ok , just kidding

I did see A PERFECT GETAWAY

I do agree with Ebert it is a darn good movie a solid 7.5 / 10

Hawaii never looked so good.

They did a good job throwing in a couple of Red Snappers

and the cast hit their marks, ladies were easy on the eyes - go if you want to have a good time.

Amores Perros - I saw this when it first came out but watched it again because I'm refreshing my knowledge of Mexican cinema to impress the Mexican boyfriend, and also because of, you know, Gael García Bernal . If you haven't seen it, rent it right away. It is some amazing film making and it's hard to believe it was García Bernal's first role. Really stunning all around.

I was actually kind of surprised that this movie did not completely and totally suck. It was predictable and the ending was over the top and clearly had an agenda but for what it was it actually wasn't half bad.

^ I agree. I don't remember much, except that I enjoyed it ok.

I expected worse.

500 Days of Summer

If Lance doesn't blow his load to his film within the first 15 minutes, mark it zero.

Too bad it's probably one of the most perfect romantic comedies that I've ever seen.

This is the kind of review I can get behind.

It's easily my favorite movie of the year as of right now.

So would you suggest I bring a box of Kleenex?

 
And some extra tissues in case I get a little teary-eyed?

Bring a big tub of popcorn, too.

 
1. Cut a hole in the box

So did this function as a worthy follow-up to YLB-3D? 50 Seconds of Slobber?

Marnie

This used to be shown on Sky TV once a week without fail but I never got round to watching it. Naturally, as soon as I decided to finally watch it Sky stopped showing it. C'est la vie I guess. I've caught up on everything back to the original Man Who Knew Too Much in the meantime, but this was certainly worth the wait. With psychological themes and a twisted romance played out it brings to mind both Notorious and Vertigo, two of Hitch's finest. But while this doesn't quite match the quality of those films, I think it's his best out of everything post-Psycho. Sean Connery adds enough shades to his character to distinguish him from his most famous and then current role, tuxedo or no tuxedo. His actions veer from genuine affection (I don't think love is appropriate) and concern to a curiosity that borders on detached cruelty. But this is Tippi Hedren's film and she makes sure every eye is on her. It's been so long since I saw The Birds that I don't recall her performance there, but here she is excellent as the disturbed, lying kleptomaniac. Thoughts of Grace Kelly are banished before long.

There's a lot to be said about Hitch'a work too. The style is unsettling, with painted backdrops giving the technicolor film an otherworldly sheen. I also loved the way he presents Marnie's thefts, with the soundtrack almost muted as he focuses on her features. Shame about the lazy cameo though.

Well said. Marnie has been gaining in appreciation and critical respect in recent years, and I've actually been lucky enough to see it in the theatre more than once. Visually, this film has no match among Hitch's late period films. The characterizations are rather disturbing, and like Vertigo, there isn't really a character you can fully get behind; they're all damaged.

Personally, I prefer it to Psycho, but I'm in a minority of people who think that film is totally overrated. I don't think it stands up very well to repeat viewing, and I'm just not a fan of that flat, television style.

That's the logical progression.
