Tucker And Dale Vs. Evil. Watched this for Halloween. It's a totally overlooked, very funny take on slasher movies, the three leads give good performances, surprisingly endearing, yet totally gory. Seen it once before, didn't laugh as hard the second time but still really good.
Wreck-It-Ralph. It was a bit busy for me visually, but that's more an issue of my taste because you'd have to expect that a movie that takes place almost completely in a CG game environment would look just as they animated it, so I'd say they did a great job with it. Anyway, in spite of my feeling overstimulated by the look, I still really did like this movie a lot. Great story, I feel like John C. Reilly gave one of the best vocal performances in a long while. Some of the old school games I used to play that make cameos in the film I had completely forgotten about for literally 20 years. Also Paperman I think is one of the best shorts I can remember seeing. Another triumph for silent films.
Somewhere. I can see why a lot of people didn't like the main guy, but maybe that was part of the point. Coppola wasn't necessarily interested in making a sympathetic portrayal of him as much as she just wanted to (as she says herself in the making-of extra) show a short segment from his life. I dunno, I really liked this movie, and he seems to me like a younger version of Bill Murray's character in Lost In Translation, another of her movies, and no one said that guy was unlikable. It's one of those movies where not that much really happens, it's more about a series of moods, and I thought the movie was really effective in expressing them.
