    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.

    Chronicle - I realize it was kind of this movie's hook, but I found it very annoying that it was viewed from the perspective of one of the character's video cameras.

    Skyfall

    Not going to say it's the "best" Bond after one viewing, but it's certainly top 5 easily. Very "Old School" Bond, some nice nods to the past, some awesome set up's for the future. Immensely entertaining.

    Conan (2011)

    Couldn't sleep the other night, free On Demand. Terrible, Awful, Waste of time. The makers didn't seem to remember what made the original Conan so good wasn't just the action but it actually had some light-hearted comic relief moments. This one had none of it and it showed.

    Skyfall- I found it amazingly entertaining.

    Good location shots to tell you where you are. Amazing opening chase scene. Gorgeous women. Judi Dench as M. Cinematography that is over the top beautiful. Bond's background. And they do all their stunts for real (and you can tell). Love love love that. (I really despise some of the ways movies use CGI )

    And that house! I want to spend a whole day photographing it. I had the same reaction to the house in The Woman In Black.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    The Prestige

    I saw it for the first time a month ago (it took me a while to finally get around to it) and watched it again recently. I love catching new things the second time around. Brilliant movie.

    Skyfall - Watched it in IMAX. Loved it! I was SO happy I knew nothing about it other than what was shown in the trailers. Have grown up watching James Bond movies, so it was especially nice that this one generously offered up as much as it did to long-time fans in such as great story.

    Brave - Bought it today to watch for the first time. From the first moments, I was absolutely blown away by the beauty presented on Blu-ray of the landscapes and scenery. Then I enjoyed following the set-up and being charmed by the family dynamic of the leads. And then we get to the twist and the tone takes a sharp left turn at Albuquerque, where I get sort of a flat tire enjoying the rest of the movie. The ending was nice, even tho' it was fairly predictable. Then, I read in the Brave thread what folks have posted there, comparing it to a previous Disney animated film. While similar, I'd say Brave is better.

    In the theater:
    Skyfall - Wanted to see it in IMAX, but went online to reserve a ticket and all the good seats were taken well into what seems to be next week. So, saw it on the regular screen. Awesome flick! I hope now that Daniel Craig's 3-movie Bond-intro, and the intro of some key Bond-universe characters has been wrapped-up and we can get into some regular Bond action in the next one.

    SKYFALL


    I went on Monday without knowing anything - only the words of my peers saying how awesome it was. Well, I wasn't as impressed. It starts great and then just peters out (for me). The film has a great visual style though and the performances are all great. I just couldn't help thinking Home Alone at one point. My favorite Daniel Craig film is still Casino Royale... but I understand the complaints from true Bond fans that it wasn't as "Bond" as they would have liked.

    Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 - Fairly interesting new documentary about the James Bond film series with interviews from all the Bond actors, current producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, Christopher Lee, directors and others. Spends a fair amount of time covering Ian Fleming that I wasn't expecting. Also spent a fair amount of time on the Kevin McClory rights drama. At ninety minutes, I personally feel this just covered the tip of the iceberg of details that could've been told, but of course, that could just be me wanting more more more! And just to be clear, that wasn't a meant as Moore Moore Moore either.

    The Batmobile - Another documentary I was looking forward to seeing. At twenty-odd minutes, it pales in comparison after just watching the Bond one. Because it's so short, it breezes through all of the Batmobiles, including the comic books as well as from film and television. Personally, I cringed at the moments when the designers of the Schumacher films gushed at their creativity. Altho' to be fair, they had the pleasure of playing in a sandbox where the director loved their ideas. But those designers never appealed to me, clearly style over substance, and I take my Batman fairly seriously.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) I found this movie to be more stupid tan scarey. I kept asking myself how all these young, early twenties people were unable to outrun the older, mentally unstable gentleman with the power tools.

    Everytime they got outside and started to run away he managed to catch up with them.

    Safety Not Guaranteed

    I think I enjoyed it. I absolutely LOVE Aubrey Plaza and she was great in the movie. Very quirky, some great moments. It ended kind of abruptly for me, don't want to give anything away though. It was certainly a sweet and touching movie.

    The Campaign

    Had some funny moments, fairly predictable. Will and Zach were very funny in it though.

    I wanted to see Ralph. Wife wanted to see Skyfall. Wife won. Anyway, this was probably my favorite of the Daniel Craig Bond movies. Straightforward story telling, excellent villain, and a few surprises and twists along the way. It will be interesting to see if the series now gets a bit of a reboot.

    PS: You would have thought that sometime during the last 50 years his employers would of asked Bond the question "BTW: Where's that Astin-Martin?'

    PPS: That's Shanghai???? Now we know where all the money went.

    John Carter While not the greatest movie, I felt it was better than it was made out to be. I went into it thinking it was going to be horrible and was pleasantly surprised. I liked the way his nephew turned out to be Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    LINCOLN


    Spielberg and team make another film that will be ripe for Oscar nominations. Despite Daniel Day Lewis' higher pitched Lincoln voice (i'm so used to Royal Dano), in the context of the film, he does a great job. Definitely a worthy viewing for all interested in American history.

    Stay through the end credits for the seemingly out of place "Distributed by Walt Disney Studios" since they own Touchstone and distribute all live-action Dreamworks movies.
